Boarders and Butter. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 18 June 1915
Boarders and Butter. It is a well-known fact that the scarcity of butter is causing a great deal of anxiety to housekeepers in Yass, and more particularly is this' the case with hotel and boarding house proprietors, most of whom are unable to secure a continued supply of this very necessary commodity. So pro nounced is the shortage of butter that the stores are retailing it out in'half and quarter pound parcels, to indi vidual customers. But'this is how some boarding houses are maintaing a fair supply. The boarders are sent off to different shops with strict in structions to purchase ' anything up to a pound of butter." And so the collective purchase is. nearly always sufficient to meet the daily require ments.-.Courier.

The Demolition of Houses. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 18 June 1915
T, he Demolition of Houses. The Publie Health Act of 1915 has now come into force, and offers to councils an easy way of dealing with buildings which are not fit to live in. Instead of the past intricate proceed ure, all that a council now has to do is to obtain a report from an officer of the' board that a house is unfit or nn safe. If the board authorises him, the council's own officer may furnish the report.. Then the council, by resolution makes an order, called a "closing order," and names a time within which the house must be made sanitary or closed up. This is a simple proceedure, and should be ef fective against many old houses, which in the prst defied the health inspecror by taking advantage of the former twisted condition of the law. It would be well for the health officers to make a close study of the new Act, and make use of its clauses to assist their Councils.
