THE RABBIT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 3 October 1916

THE RABBIT INDUSTRY. The wisdom -of the directors in securing the new works has been abundantly proved since the war, when shipping has been scarce and hard to get. Indeed, it is on ly at rare intervals that steamer space for frozen rabbits can be secured. An opportunity occur red last week, when over 40 tons of bunny were despatched from the works,, These being hard fro zen, would be landed direct from the trucks into the steamer. Un der the old conditions this was impossible, owing (1) to the in adequacy of the freeizng plant, and (2) the shortness of storage room at the works. The result was that the company's rabbits were sent away half-frozen, and had to be re-frozen in Sydney, which involved heavy freezing and storage charges. If the new works, with their large storage capacity, had not been secured, the bottom would have been knoc ked out of the local rabbit indus try long ago, and the company would have been either obliged to close down or to foot a huge bill for storage in ...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. [From Our Correspondent.] SYDNEY. Monday, 5 p.m. The first batch af recruits under the War Service proclamation went into camp to-day. A large number of the men were responsible for dis turbances in the city on Saturday night. They made several half hearted attacks on the I.W.W. pre mises in Sussex-street, and broke the glass doors and front door of the building.

The Floods. COMPARATIVELY LITTLE DAMAGE DONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 10 October 1916

The Roods/ COMPARATIVELY LITTLE DAMAGE DONE. Tto rain really terminated on Thursday night, although fihiere were a few showers on Friday^ which ftegistered 1G points by the post office gauge. On Thursday 230 points fell. The total fall in Braidwood was Iol7 points. Tins is probably a record for .a con tinuous -rainfall for this district. It represents about half our ave rage annual rainfall. The damage done here by the floods has been comparatively small. The roads and streets, of course, have suffered consider able damage, tout even this is not so serious as the huge fall would suggest. The. fact tfiat the rain extended over such a long period, and was not unusually heavy at any stage of 'it, is ac countable for the smallness of the damage. The swimming dam has been al most totally wrecked. The water ploughed a deep channel round tho dam on the northern side. This was originally dug to carry the overflow from the dam. The flood waters,' however, deepened this. The huge timbers plac...

The Roumanian troops which recently crossed the Danube, thus appearing to threaten the ene my's near, have 'completed their demonstration,' and have been withdrawn. . The Dobrudja battle, it is re ported, is proceeding with in creasing violence. The Russian attacks in Galicia and Volhynia are being , very stubbornly ? resisted.
