Stocks and Shares. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 March 1920

The last monthly report issued by Messrs. Joseph Palmer and Sons, stock and share brokers, of Sydney, contains," among much other matter, the following:— War Loan.—All four varieties had a set-back during the month, but the market has since recovered. It is again noticeable that buyers prefer the longer dated untaxable (4jV per cent, stock due 1927, to the similar stock due 1925, as, presumably, they foresee the day when untaxable stocks will be very hard to acquire. The 41 per cent. 1925 is quoted at £95 12s 6d, and that due 1927 at £96. Of the two varieties subject to Federal, but not State, in come tax, 5 per cent. 1923 is quoted at £97 12s 6d and 5 per. cent. 1927 at £95. ... Wheat—Dividends have been de clared, payable 1st March, of 6d per bushel to holders of scrip in Victorian, South Australian and Western Aus tralian 1917-18 and 1918-19 pools; also of 7d, less freight, say about 2f]d per bushel, on the New South Wales "D," 1918-19 pool.

The Battle of Bellicourt. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 March 1920

The Battle of BelSicourl (By "Whaleoil.") The following is the story of one ot the most difficult operations that our gallant infantry was called upon to perform during the Great War that we have just fought to a successful conclusion. Want of space renders it necessary to make the narrative as short as possible, and as it is the intention of the author to deal only with the part played by the 53rd Bat talion, A.I.F., the gallant part played by other units can only be referred to in the briefest possible manner. After a series of extremely success ful battles, beginning with the great offensive (called the Battle of Amiens) near Villers Brettoneux on the 8th August, 1918, the Australian corps, in conjunction with other troops, had forced the enemy back a distance of about 30 miles to the-sys tem of trenches known as the Hin denburg Line, north of St. Quentin, capturing many thousands of prison ers and huge quantities of war material. The enemy were now fighting des perately, fully r...

The "FALKLAND" is obtainable from ALL Storekeepers. i Falkland 99 Without one the home is incomplete. Perfect Refrigerator EXCELLENCE OF CONSTRUCTION is the primary consideration when purchasing a Refrigerator. An essentia] in this direction is the TIMBER employed and the time allowed for THOROUGHLY SEASONING same. The "FALKLAND" differs from all other Refrigerators on the market, in so far that it is the ONLY REFRIGERATOR made of Australian Timber of proved excellence, and so exquisitely French Polished as to equal any other ornamental piece of furniture in the home. In building a Refrigerator, WORKMANSHIP is, next to timber, the most important consideration. For this reason the "FALKLAND" is MADE BY JOINERS and not by juniors in the wood-working trade. The INSULATION of the " FALKLAND" is an adaptation of the best methods for insuring a perfect draught of cool air.

CURRENT COMMENTS. State Elections [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 March 1920

State Elections. There are nineteen candidates for the Newcastle electorate, all of whom profess a mission to save the country. They are proclaiming vehemently what works they will insist upon being carried out when they get into Parliament. No mention has so far been made of the source from which this money is to be obtained for such works. Neither has any definite state ment been made regarding retrench ment. Aspirants for the position of legislator should have some reason able knowledge of existing conditions, and they should possess sufficient courage to tell the electors the plain but unpalatable truth. As demonstrating the cause of pre sent burdensome taxation, an ex ample may be cited in the case of the workman who desires to possess a home of his own. (1) Immediately the purchase is negotiated, he must acknowledge to the Commissioner for Stamps, the value of the property and pay the fees of that official; (2) he must promptly notify the Lands De partment, provide all particu...

Marvellous Mildura. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 March 1920

Marvellous Mildura. Recently a representative party of Australian pressmen visited Mildura at the invitation of the A.D.F.A. Sub sequently they were entertained at a banquet, and in seconding the toast of "The Press/' Mr. C. J. De Garis jnade the following remarks: — "The toast of the press (he said) often means a formal expression of thanks for favors rendered. To-night it has a much deeper significance. We have the representatives of the greai papers of the Commonwealth of Aus tralia, Seven Big Cities (six of them State Capitals) and all Country Press Associations are represented to-night in this remote spot which 33 years ago did not exist as a township—and which 25 years ago was condemned by friend and foe as a hopeless failure. It was a sad gathering then of the '1 told you so' gang, and the 'Well, 1 wouldn't have believed it' crowd. "To-day it is a miracle of accom plishment.

CLIP THE NOMINATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 March 1920

CLIP THE NOMINATIONS. Unless some such precaution as that last mentioned is adopted the proportion of informal—and, there fore, wasted—votes will be terrific. Thousands upon thousands of people —particularly women—leave the selec tion of the candidates until the last moment. In past elections, with few candidates to select from, this leaving the selection until the last minute has led to too many informalities. In the recent Federal elections, in which there were more candidates than usual in one electorate, and in which pre ferential voting prevailed, this neglect until the last minute produced an ap palling percentage of informalities. In face of as many as 21 candidates in an electorate, one is appalled at the pro spect of what the informal votes will total in the election on March 20 un less careful precautions are made be forehand to guard against such wast age. One step in the precaution will be to clip the nominations from this morning's newspapers and preserv* the list. PART...

March 20. HOW TO VOTE. RISKS OF INFORMALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 March 1920

March 20. HOW TO VOTE. RISKS OF INFORMALITY. A figure indicating order of prefer ence must be placed opposite the name of every candidate on the ballot paper. The closing of nominations for the State elections provides the founda tion upon which voters must make their choice on March 20. Truly, the choice must be made from a higgledy piggledy mass of confusion. But the confusion cannot now be avoided, and as the choice has to be made the best must be extracted from the position as it stands. There will be no sense —only foolishness—in treating the re sponsibility with indifference. A Parliament of some sort has to be chosen; therefore, it is a sacred duty to select the best one possible. As necessary steps towards the faithful fulfilment of this obligation three things can be impressed on voters, irrespective of bias towards any candidate or party. First: Vote on March 20: it is a sacred duty of vast importance. Secondly: Vote, in order of preference, for every candi date on the bal...

Common Errors in Speech. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

Common Errors in Speech. "Everyone should be allowed to spell as he likes/' was the advice given to his audience by the principal of a great university, an educational expert, a little while ago. When the masters give such counsel we need not be surprised that our common lan guage, spoken and written, gets a little crooked at times! A great fault of to-day is the misuse of words by giving to them meanings quite different from their original sense. For instance, the words "fetch" and "bring" have really not the same meaning, though used as synonyms. "Fetch" expresses a double movement—first from, and then towards, the speaker, while "bring" only expresses motion towards one. ; Among the most common mistakes made is the confusing of the words "lie" and "lay." The first, of course, is the passive verb, and the latter the active. A person lies down to sleep, but a hen lays an egg; this exempli fies the difference of meaning. CAN A FLY FLEE? "Stop and stay are also words in the same cate...

Paper Currency and High Prices. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

Paper Currency and High Prices. The last few years have seen an enormous increase in the issue of paper currency, so great, in fact, has been the output from the currency printing presses that the face value of the paper currency emitted during four years of war exceeds the total value of gold and silver produced in the whole world since the discovery of America by Columbus. The evil is aggravated, too, by the fact that barely one-fifteenth of the paper notes put into circulation by the various Govern ments has any sort of metallic backing at all, and yet we get the perpetrators of this debasement of the currency pointing to the prosperity of the coun tries in which paper circulates. But this prosperity is only apparent, not real, and the monetary history of all countries abounds with examples illu strating the rapidity with which people fall into the delusion that high prices, due to over-issues of paper money, are evidence of prosperity. The real evil in paper money is the emissio...

Before Sunset. (Written a few days before Mr. Brex's death from cancer, at a time when he was suffering very great pain.) [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

Before Sunset. (By Twells Brex in the London "Daily Mail.") (Written a few days before Mr. Brex's death from cancer, at a time when he was suffering very great pain.) Socrates, among his beautiful ana serene philosophies that no man can study without girding his soul with armour, remarked this of death: Life is a great possession. The more years we have on this earth, the more years we want. The most obvious confutation of melancholy people who Ueclare that "life is not worth living," vno ludicrously describe active, san guine, varied, multi-coloured human existence as a "vale of tears," is the truth that man's greatest passion is the desire to live—to live anywhere, anyhow, at any price, if only to live; as a pauper; to live blind, maimed, halt; to live bruised in body and soul —just to live. What malady-stricken king would not forfeit his throne for exchange into the hale body of a road side vagrant? What sick, millionaire would not pay his last shilling for the health and the rag...

WASTE THROUGH FAULTY FRUIT DISTRIBUTION. While Growers are Unorganised, the Leakage will Persist. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

WASTE THROUGH FAULTY FRUIT | DISTRIBUTION. j I While Growers are Unorganised, the Leakage will Persist. "There seems every prospect of ex port of fruit being resumed at an early date," writes the Fruit Expert in a note on packing and marketing. "This will mean fewer apples from the other larger producing States on our mar kets, and consequently more room for ' our own products. However, too much of our inland and tableland fruits come ! to Sydney only to be reconsigned back 1 to the country. Probably this faulty distribution will not be completely re medied till growers are more fully combined and have an organisation to correct this anomaly, and every ef fort should be made by growers to make their organisation strong enough to carry out this work systematically. But in the meantime every grower should be on the lookout for markets in different parts of the country which cannot produce the class of fruit he is growing."
