TRANGIE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 30 January 1912
TRANGIE. The additions to the local school building have been completed, and will be ready for occupation when the Xmas vacation terminates. To say the least of it, thie buildings present quite an up-to-date appearance, well ventilated, and plenty of accommoda tion. The north-west side would have been better had a verandah been erected there; as it is, the windows and wall will be exposed to the direct rays of the sun during the hottest part of the day; The Parents and Citizens' Association should have en deavored to induce the Department whilst the additions were in course of erect'on to sanction same, but, un fortunately, they did not see their way cienr to do so. The brick work of the main build ing of the Commercial Banking Com pany's new premises is nearing com pletion and the building when finish ed will be quite an acquisition to Dandaloo-street.

GENERAL NEWS. JUDGE DOCKER ON STARVING STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 30 January 1912
GENERAL NEWS. JUDGE DOCKER ON STARVING STOCK. In rcspect to the long distances which stock have to travel without, a drink to roach tire Sydney markets, and to which we have on more than one occasion called attention, has caused Judge Docker to comment very strongly upon the matter. His Honor said: "It is becoming a public scandal. It ought to be ..within the ingenuity of man to either unload the cattle half way along their journey or supply them with water. The Hail way Commissioners disclaim the re sponsibility for the cruelty, but they ought to refuse to carry stock under circumstances that are opposed to the principles of common hunmanity." The case which his Honor was hear ing had reference to travelling cattle from Jerilderie to Campbelltown, a distance of 450 miles witln out food or drink, and which occupied from Friday till Sunday. Four of the beasts were dead on arrival and a i number prostrated. This is, indeed, j a lamentable state of affairs in a civ- j ilised country li...

DOMESTIC SERVANT PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 30 January 1912
DOMESTIC SERVANT PROBLEM. "It is quite time some practical at tempt was made to solve the domestic servant problem," said Mrs. M. Stow art Barnot, of Sydney, who recently returned to Sydney from a tour of Europe. It is almost an impossibilty for people fco got servants in Australia, yet there are numbers of girls in Eng land willing to come out hero woro it not for tiio difficulty of finding the money to pay the passage. When in Ireland I jnot several girls fitted in every way to make admirable servants who were anxious to como to Sydney, but out of Mioir meagre wages could not s:ivo sufficient money to pay the passage. This difficulty is easily un derstood when I tell you tho girls in question were only receiving 12s a month. The high wages ruling in New South Wales for domestic work ers is a great attraction to tho girls ill tho homeland, but tho almost hope less impossibility of being able to save (■he necessary ;C(i or £7 for the passage out a weekly wago of 3/ stands in the way...

ASCRIBED TO A RABBITER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 30 January 1912
ASCRIBED TO A RABBITER. We do not feel incluined to fall m with the view taken by a New Zeal and pastoralist, who says he shot a n uni I icr of doe rabbits recently, and noticed that in nearly every case the fore legs were cut off, showing that they had been caught in the traps and liberated by the rabbiters. Now that has bfeen said about about the New South Wales rabbiter, and although! we do not hold a brief for him, Ave say that every night a trapper goes round his traps he invariably finds a log or two in them, which lias been left behind by bunny himself in his frantic endeavors to free himself from the contraption patented by Griffiths. To say that the rabbiter deliberately liberates them is vile calumny, when the whole cause of the matter is attributable to the springs of the trap and its sharp jaws. Innumerable rabbiters wrap rag around the Jaws of their traps to obviate the escape of the prisoner, which is providing them with their bread and butter.
THE BELATED CORONER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 30 January 1912
THE BELATED CORONER. According to the "Narromine Tim es," the custom of waiting until a Coroner views a body which has been lying for some time In about 110 de grees in the shade, is not conducive of good to the olfactory nerve of those who are in the vicinity. The paper goes on to say: "Tine irritating fool ishness of some of our laws is a reasonble excuse for frequent bursts of profanity. On Thursday of last week a man who was alleged to have committed suicide at Narromine on the previous night was kept unburied through the blazing sun until the cor oner arrived by the western mail In tiie evening to "view" the body—and pronounce the man dead, we presume. Everyone in town, including one of the doctors—knew the unfortunate man was dead, but he could not, ow ing to the silly law, be dead and buri ed until he was officially pronounced defunct. Had he returned to life he would, we suppose, have been burled, because the coroner said he was dead—and who should know better than the coron...
