MILK—GOOD MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 16 October 1915
. MILK— GOOD MILK. Some cows give good milk (over the ~ * standard), other .cows give milk with water in it— any dairyman will tell you that. See how unfortunate they have been in the police courts through these same cows. But ^ ? wt! have a milk purveyor on our midst who \ gets his milk from cows that go over the standard— he will have no other. During his ten years experience in Sydney and here, Mr. Laynam, of Clarice-street, Lithgow, has i ' had 1002 samples taken and has never. yet been found wanting. This speaks volumes / for the quality of the milk supplied, seeing , that last Sunday in Sydney alone he de livered to his customers over 2y2 tons of ' milk. His advertisement appeals on page 1 s — it is worth reading.

There. are several members of the Paine family at the front. , ,

The ignitions at the earlier stages were1 --R. i.'ale, ^0, 1; Tom Griffiths, 39, 2; Tom Pow-lell, 3X, 3; J. Kelly, 36, 4. p. Hughes (27), had oighth place. A keen struggle took place for supremacy at the 500 yards' range. Dowd?ll, Sergeant Commons, Hughes, and Kelly each made 28 points. This must be considered good shooting with an ordinary MartiniEn fleld rifle, without any wind guages or aper ture sights. Roy Cale dropped to third place, being headed by Dowdell and Kelly respectively. At 600 yards the only change in the leading positions was that D. Hughes took the place of R. Cale, who dropped back into fourth place. A new record for 600 yards was made by T. Dowdell, who made 26. The final positions were: — T. Dowdell, 92—1; J. Kelly, 87—2; D. Hughes, 80—3; R.

BRANCH UNION DISSATISFIED. A meeting of the Portland branch of th»j Shop Assistants' Union ? was held on Mon day night, and it was evident, from the pro ceedings that great dissatisfaction was ff-!t towards the parent union. It appears that the award exrired 12 months ago, and though the secretary in Sydney has been written frequently, no move has been made towards its renewal. It is stated here that there is a great deal of probability of the ? Dranph joining the Railway Workers' Union, .-tiri'd at *he next meeting a vote will be taken ?in this connfttcion. It is the general opinion :/???. that the parent union does not place the least importance on the Portland branch, and their corre.poadence is not even , .promptly attended to, therefore, the major ity arc distinctly in favor of making some \ ? definite move in the, near future. What this move will he it 1b yet impossible to say, but It is probable that after the next meet ing their lot will be thrown in with the union leferred ...
