''The Cloister and the Hearth''apart may be, But bonds of faith lior time nor tide shall chill, One path of grace to both- spreads Wide and free, The call of human anguish jinks them still. The glowing hearth that cheers a winter night, And with its warmth still aids us to endure, In cloister or in home still adds its light To Woods' Great Peppermint Cu£e,

MENACE TO DEMOCRACY. (Published by Arrangement). [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 July 1924
MENACE TO DEMOCRACY. (Published by Arrangement)'. ' The great positive factor to law lessness is the Prohibition law. i I};., is the greatest menace to democracy. So declared Judge Tally, of' the Court of General Sessions for the county of New York. 'Prohibition,' his Honor contin ued, as he is reported in the New York 'Iferald,' 'has done no single thing it was claimed it would do, but it. has produced a harvest we can lil afford to gather. It is a harvest whose results arc iancalcul able. I do not speak of the increase of drinking among the young which it has fostered, but of the iin'crease in the lack of respect for law. 'When people see one law openly, brazenly, happily violated, when the young see this, as they see it in thou sands of homes, what will they think of the necessity of obeying other;, laws? 'As' one who has watched it all,' concluded Judge Talley, 'prohibition has effected no decrease in crime.'

"MONITOR" OIL ENGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 July 1924
'MONITOR' OIL ENGINES. The price of the U-h.p. 'Monitor' Oil Engine is £37 10s. cash, and £40 on terms. The cost of benzine for an hour's run will be under 4d. An 'Alfa-Laval 88-gallon Sep arator handles nearly half a ton of milk per hour. Turning a large separator day after day by hand is needless drud gery, and during the very hot wea ther is exhausting to the operator. Operating a large separator by hand is not economically sound,, as a man's labor is worth several times the value of benzine required for an hour's run. The 'Monitor' Oil Engine will operate a separator much more stead- . ily than turning by hand. - The 'Mpnitor' is most simple to operate, and will pump water, grind corn, and cut chair, and within its power there is no limit to the range of usefulness of these little engines.

It was in 1921 that it occurred to I members of this branch of the Bur- j eau that they might increase the pur chasing power of their, earnings by buying oh a better market',' an order for £26 worth of go'ods being made up .by. six members and one member appointed as - buyer and distributor, on a percentage basis. The first or der proved such a success that the next one was increased to £40, with more buyers, and the third order to £300, with about for^r buyers, since when -the branch has- turned oyer about £8000 worth of such requisites 'as groceries, boots, fertilisers, seeds and farm implements.

AIRSHIP DEVELOPMENT. ENGLAND TO INDIA IN 1927. After a very brief debate the House of Cojnmons has approved the expenditure of £350,000 on. the de velopment of airships. The Under-secretary of State for Air (Mr. Leach) stated that the first airship flight to India would be made in 1927, probably sooner. Un der the existing contract the airship nfust have a minimum speed of 70 miles an hour, but they hoped for 85 to 90 miles per hour. It would be built at Cardingtpn (Bedfordshire).

TALLOWEENA. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 July 1924
TALLOWEENA. Since the completion of the con crete causeway in the Talloweena Crossing, on the Wombeyan Caves road, the car traffic has considerably increased, as naturally week-enders avail themselves of the opportunity of reaching the Caves in the day from Sydney, which cannot be done via Goulburn without overdriving. The winter so far has been a re markably dry one. During the past week wc have had the heaviest frosts of the season.. Dingoes and wild dogs are spread ing throughout the district, and will prove most destructive agents dur ing the lambing season. Our local shire engineer per formed a feat some little time back by driving his Ford car from Mitta gong to Wombeyan Caves in two hours and twenty minutes. He un hesitatingly slates that the journey can be done in less time.

What, 'Jonah and the Whale?' Well, whales' is sheep I never shore;' I've never been to sea, So all them great Leviathans is mys teries to me; But there's a tale the Bible tells I fully understand, .' i . About the time the Patriarchs were settling on the land. Those Patriarchs of .olden time, when all is said and done, They lived the same as far-out men on many a Queensland run — A lot of roving, droving men, who drifted to and fro, The same we did out Queensland way a score of years ago. Now Isaac was a squatter man, and Jacob was his son, And when the boy grew up, you see, he wearied of the run. , You- know the way that boys grow up — there's some that. stick .at home; ' But any boy- that's worth 'his- salt will roll -his swag and room.
