Great preparedness had been made . to receive him and our little hall has scarcely ever witnessed such a-scene of gaiety. A huge pine tree in vthe centre of the building was covered with glitter ing spun glass decorations and lit. with multi-coloured Chinese lanterns. Before the doors were opened the hall lights were dimmed and the splendidly bedecked tree glimmered; as though lighted with fire-flies' magic sheen. The children, on entering their spe cial enclosure, were each presented with a distinctive jazz cap. i When all were seated the hall; . lights again lit up disclosing toys In-,' ' numerable.

It is a spy placed there by Nature to warn you that your kidneys need help. Don't neglect the warn ing; stop it now, for it may be too late if you put it off. You ask how to stop it? AVell let this woman tell you. Mrs. M. Bobbin, Cowper-strefet, Croolcwell, says: "For some time my health was far from good, due to the fact that my kidneys were very dis ordered. I knew this to be the case as I had aching pains in my back, was always tired, and could not sleep properly. I was also subject to dizzy j attacks. The backache was very trying and I could hardly move with out suffering and if I stooped, it was impossible for me to stand up straight again without help. A friend advis ed me to try Doan's Backache Kid ne.V Pills, so I bought some at once, and by the time I had used a coup le of bottles I felt a good deal bet ter. thus...

XMAS. FIRST YULETIDE CELEBRATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 24 December 1925

XMAS. FIRST YULETIDE CELEBRATIONS The first known celebration of the birthday of our Lord was ill A.D. 140, though there is a tradition which says that Christmas was first observ ed in A.D. 9S, points out the "Sunday at Home." The use of mistletoe at Christinas came from the Druids, with whom it was a special object of adoration. Holly, according to ancient tradi tion, was the bush in which God ap ' peared to Moses. Tlie lighted candles on Cliristmmas Eve are derived from a Jewish cele bration, which takes place about the same time. Santa Claus is an English adaption of the Netherlands word "Sunter Klaas," meaning St. Nicholas, the patron saint of children. The inince-pie is all that is left of the immense pie of early days made of meat and sweet accessories, and usually in tlie form of a cradle.

PETROL TAX. A FEDERAL PROPOSAL. MONEY FOR ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 24 December 1925

PETROL TAX. 1 A FEDERAL PROPOSAL. MONEY FOR ROADS. The Commonwealth Government proposes to call a conference in Feb ruary at which a scheme to spend £20,000,000 on roail construction will be discussed. It is believed that the Government intends to raise the money through the Customs by means of a tax on petrol. Speaking in the Western Austral ian Legislative Assembly a few days ago during consideration ol tthe Taxation of Motor Spirit Vendors Bill, the Minister for Works (Mr.- A. McCallum) said that there had been a report that the Commonwealth Government might impose a petrol tax. It, was not intended to duplicate the tax. He, therefore, secured the passage of a ne wclause, providing that if the Commonwealth Govern ment imposed a tax and the money were to be used for the main roads, the Governor-in-Council should have power wholly or partly and for such time as he thought lit to discontinue the State tax, Motor Users to Pay. The Prime Minister has partly con firmed the foregoing pa...

Turning left: Hold the right arm across the cheBt. Notify other users of the road and the traffic police of your intentions by commencing to use the proper sig nal at least 50 yards from the point required.

Crookwell Hospital. UNSOLICITED TRIBUTE FROM PATIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 24 December 1925

Crookwell Hospital. UNSOLICITED TRIBUTE FROM PATIENT. . Mr. J. T. Walsh, representing Messrs.

WOOL REPORT Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report: SYDNEY, Dec. 17. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 24 December 1925

WOOL REPORT Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report: SYDNEY, Dec. 17. Advices from London and from Brisbane this week as to the latest trend o£ the wool market are not particularly cheery. We regard the slight set-back, however, as merely temporary and as the natural out come o£ continuous wool sales for six months in Australia. It has been one of the most marvellous' features of a marvellous year that the big carry over from last season has been ab sorbed, in addition to heavy weekly offerings since the new clip became available, without fulfilment of the pessimist section prediction that a serious relapse in prices was inevit able. Maintainance of strong French demand has been as unexpected as it is inexplicable in the face of the greatly depreciated franc. To find that French orders have by no means ceased when the franc is 133, as against SO when wool sales were re sumed, affords food for reflection by the political economist, whose hide bound dogmas have proved just as amenabl...
