LADY'S IMPRESSIONS OVERLAND MOTORING. Mrs. Parker, the wife of a well known Sydney business man, who has arrived in Melbourne by car from Perth, was most agreeably impress ed with her experience of overland travel. Mr. and Mrs. Parker left Perth on the 23rd July, in a light six Buick, and had motored 2,600 mil»s when Melbourne was reached.

The overlanders are convinced that sound tyres are necessary on the ovei land, an d for preference heavy ply covers should be used. The nine old tyres failed to survive the trip and a new set of four, all that were~vobtainable had to be purchased at Ceduna (S.A.).

WONDERFUL St. MARY'S HISTORICAL GATHERING IN SYDNEY. EDIFYING RELIGIOUS FERVOR AND MAGNIFICENT CEREMONIES. THE WHOLE WORLD SENDS REPRESENTATIVES (Special to 'Independent'). i Yesterday saw the coping stone placed upon 60 years of untiring labor, when thousands gathered to see the completed St. Mary's R. C. Cathedral opened. What a wonder ful building pile it isr and the pride not only of the men and women of the ancient faith, but of every citi zen who glories in beautiful archi tecture, as well as in the building of noble edifices wherein the God of all mankind is worshipped. The cost of St. Mary's runs to well over half a million sterling, but 'tis computed that if the people were to let a contract in these days of high costs for a similar building, it would run to at least two millions sterling! What a noble structure it is. Stand ing at the entrance to Sydney Do main, and appearing sentinel-like to people coming up the harbor, St. Mary's has taken 60 years to build. There was on...

MILLIONS OUT OF COTTON [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 3 September 1928

MILLIONS OUT OF COTTON The British Exchequer will greatly benefit from the millionaire estate of Mr. William Hodge Coats, principal of the big cotton firm, who died last week, aged 62. A relative who died last year, Wil liam Allen Coats, of Paisley, thread manufacturer, left an estate in Great Britain of nearly £4,000,000. Estates over £2,000,000 pay duty at the rate of' 40 per cent. The Coats family have furnished more names to the millionaire list in recent years than any others, being only approached in numbers or amounts by the Wills family, of to bacco fame. The richest heiress in the United Kingdom is Miss Gladys Yule. It is estimated that her father, Sir DaVid Yule, th Anglo-Indian merchant, who died recently, left an estate valued at £20,000,000, and her mother, Lady Yule, possesses a large fortune in her own right. Sir DaVid Yule's fortune is a record for this country. The nearest figure during the last few years was £11,000,000 left by the Earl of Ive agh. Other large esta...
