Water Supply. SUTHERLAND SHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 November 1925
Water Supply. SUTHERLAND 8HIRE. Mr. T. Heslop, President, Grand Council Progress Association, "C" Biding, Sutherland Shire, forwards the following with a request for- pub lication:— The proposed water supply to Cro nulla and the rate to be levied on the assessed annual value will be an important.issue of the Sutherland Shire Council elections to be held at Sutherland on Dth December next. The present scheme under consid eration is a scheme which does not carry the favour of a representative majority of the ratepayers, as it is a scheme which favours the %yater ir respective of the cost to the ratepay ers, which particularly affects the holders of vacant land at Cronulla and Sutherland, who are resident in the country. A responsible section of the rate payers at Sutherland and resident within the Shire object to the imposs ible rate being levied against the ratepayers and favour the Lower Wo ronora Scheme, at about half the cost, and which will greatly increase the present proposed s...

Second-Hand Cars. BARGAINS ON OFFER. INFLUENCE OF THE LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 November 1925
Second'Hand Cars. r BARGAINS ON OFFER. INFLUENCE OF THE LADIES. In the latest "Motor News" there is an illustration depicting a small mot or car and two men gazing at each other'-from each side, of it. Owher of small car (to timid, but ^probable, customer): "What! You ask for a guarantee with a second hand car selling at £75? 'Why you would. not get a guarantee with a Rolls-Royce at that price." | There are lota of good second-hand cars for, sale in Sydney to-day, and many oty them are decided bargains. But even with the very best of them salesmen will give no guarantee other than that the cars are in good work ing order and condition. To look out for bargains one must be a fair judge. And if anyone wishes to get a really good second»hand car he must either be a judge or have some motorist to do the judging,for him. At this sea son of the year really wonderful bar gains are to be had in second-hand vehicles. Men are generally quite content to-hang on to a good vehicle for a few year...
WOOL REPORT Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report: SYDNEY, Nov. 19. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 November 1925
JSOOL REPOKT Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report: SYDNEY, Nov. 19. Advices from practically all selling centres indicate existence of genuine and healthy demand for wool. Prices ' would seem to have automatically ar ranged themselves on a bar-is that leaves prospeut of moderate profit to the manufacturer, and is well above the elusive "cost of produc tion" iu Australia. We say elusive, because in a hundred, shots at arriv ing at the cost of production, there will probably be ninety-nine differ ent prices .arrived at, 'according to the viewpoint of the calculator, his local factors, and what lie may con sider a justifiable margin of profit. The dark horse is as to what extent America will be a purchaser for our finest-typed wools, but the actual ex tent of requirements of that country will not definitely be ascertained i«i: til after Christinas, as comparatively few choice New England and South ern clips can be submitted to auction until January or February next. Each year, as t...

The Labor Party. BAN ON COMMUNISTS. SUPPORTED BY MR. LOUG1JUN. Mr. Loughliu, Minister for Lands, in a statement said that Mr. Tyrcll's proposal to refuse representation at tlie Easter Labor Conference to un ions afliliated with the Moscow In ternationale is a wise one. "But," added Mr. LuugUlin. "this embargo should he applied also to those unions which admit Commun ists to their ranks. The avowed and explicit policy of the Communists is to destroy the A.L.I\ Neither in dividuals nor unions therefore can be loyal to the Communist Head quarters and to the A.L.P. at one and the same time. Ministers generally support the proposal for the exclusion from the A.L.P. of unions afliliated with Com munistic bodies.

Great White Train. ALL AUSTRALIAN-MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 November 1925
Great White Train. i ALL AUSTRALIAN.MADE. The Great White Train is one thousand feet long. It weighs one thousand tons. It is "Australian made" from the rear buffers'of the brake-van to the front of the engine. The engine, by the way, is the largest in the Commonwealth, and was made at Walsh, Island. The exhibition coaches will unquestionably be a re velation to the country people—as they were to many a Sydneyite who was privileged to see them—for they show* at a glance the marvellouss variety and the obvious superiority of the goods that are being turned out in Australia's factories. As Mr. Peter Board pointed- out at the conclusion of his speech on the occasion of the train's departure, it was a fitting co incidence that this great trainr illus trative of the acts of peace, should set out on Its tour on the anniversary of the Armistice—the anniversary of the day .which brought peace and goodwill to all the nations of the earth.
LAGGAN. (From Our Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 November 1925
LAGGAN. (From Our Correspondent). Over three inches or rain fell here during Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of last 'week. It was the best fall of rain at this time of year for many years and came at a most op portune time, as the grass was be ginning to get dry and crops which were coming out in liead were at a standstill. The local farmers are jubilant. There will now be plenty of grass for the summer months and a 25 per-cent, better harvest. The rain will interfere with the shearing in the locality, as most of the sheds had made a staTt and only a few were cut out. , There has been a good deal of sick ness among the infantile section of the people in the district. Mr. and Mrs. Os. Cooper's infant has been dangerously ill for some time, and Mr. and Mrs. J. Cramp's baby is very bad. Extensive preparations have been made for the -opening of the new Catholic Church on New Year's Day. His Lordship, Dr. Barry, will perform the ceremony and also crown the Queeu-eleet at 8.30 in the even...

By this being done it will obviate the necessity for the time being of any more gates be ing opened up and will give extra room, for motor traffic, as it is pro posed to remove the publican's booth from its present position to a much more suitable site on the hillside overlooking the ring and will leave a much more safe way for traffic down past where the booth at present stands, which most certainly is a de cided improvement. • O...

PASTORAL. THE FARMER'S CLIP. Branding and Marking. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 November 1925
&lt; PASTOKAL. THE FARMER'S CLIP. , Branding and Marking. The importance of brandiug and marking wool bales distinctly is 110I realised by many farmers, says a bulletin oC the Western Australian De partment of Agriculture. Not only is there' the risk of the wool being lost in transit, or mixed up with other bales that have been carelessly mark ed, but'it is most important that each bale should carry a mark carefully stencilled with reliable black ink. Under no circumstances should a farmer use paint, tar, tatoo oil, branding fluid,- or any oily substance for marking his bales, as the grease oozing from the,wool makes this oily •substance spread until it is undesiph erable. A plain stencil brand to cor respond with the farm or station should be placed on each bale, with the description of the contents di rectly underneath and the number of the bale again below that. Only black ink must be used by growers for marking baleB. Coloured inks are re served by buyers to make distinc...
