THE WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 1 August 1924

: THE WOOL MARKET. Has Australia lost its wool sup remacy? South Africa is jubilant in its be lief that its wool now leads the world. The reason for this is a re markable speech by the president of ^^the British Wool Federation, Mr. Harltwd, at an important textile conference at the Wembley Exhibi tion towards the end of June. ? The steamer, Clan Mackellar, brought copies of the speech to Fre mantle. Mr. Harland said whatever diver gence. of view existed on the subject of 'a probable eiarly shortage of wool, it was apparent at the confer ence that on one point there was complete unanimity among British Wool Textile Manufacturers. This was the lead the Union of South Africa was taking in the suppiy of wool.' . 'Mr, Harland referred to the great progress made in recent years in the j^t-up and marketing of Cape clip. , 'Par-reaching effects had been se \$jjred;by the introduction on a large „ sgple pf blood stock from Australia.

Albert C.- Ritchie, Governor of Maryland, U.S.A., in a recent speech deplored the fact that. $38,000,000 Was being spent annually by the Fe deral: Government for Prohibition enforcement that fails. Commenting oh this, a'-tfritef' in the New York 'Tribune' sajfa: — :'We are 1 beginning slowly but surely , to realise : how. imprudent it is to. 'put over,' as the phrase is, a. sumptuary law, .and especially as an amendment to the Constitution. , They. are wiser in their generation in England, where there is no cast-iron legisla-. tion. 'The. fact is that sort of thing is quite contrary to the genius- of the Anglo-Saxon^ Liberty, and especially personal liberty, being' their ideal, they do not want to be unable to rid themselves readily of whatever law begins . to 'gall them. Furthermore, they haVe learned from long experi ence, as- indeed have all European peoples, .that sumptuary laws are the most difficult of enfor...

MITTAGONG MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 1 August 1924

MITTAGONG MATTERS, They say there is one man in Mit tagong who thoroughly deserves the name of 'Lucky Jack,' and that is Ml*. Jack Roberts, sen., of our firm of Roberts and Lippiatt. As he is a thoroughly good sport may he keep on winning. Mr. Chester Smith, our station mas ter, resumed duties during the week after his annual holidays, which were spent at Merewether, Newcastle. He speaks well of the progress of the coal city in recent years. The Lower Mittagong Public School is now quite semi-military in the marching of the Farm Homes boys in and out of school with cornels blaring and drums booming and kettling. Mr. Thresher (headmaster) and staff of four teachers, have now an enrolment well over the 200 mark, and judging by the number of boys some of the teachers have, an addi tion to the staff would be welcomed. Mr. Grimmond, of the headquarters of the Fire Brigade, Sydney, has inspected the Mittagong Fire Station and Fire Brigade, and before leav ing spoke very highly of the con ...

TOO MANY CLAIMANTS. The Big Four Thousand Art Union was drawn at tbe Town Hall on April 30 last. No fewer than eleven peo ple have claimed the first prize. The first man who claimed, the prize said he had lost his ticket, but had written the number up on the kitchen wall which, a day or two after,' was painted over. The num bers arp. quite .distinct. Another man who claimed., the prize also lost his ticket. He remembered the number because on the day he purchased it he saw a motor-car number plate and a number on a cab. Both were identical with tne ticicet ne neio. Then a lady came along: She, too, had lost her ticket, but had written the number down on the lapel of her handbag. The last person who claimed the prize produced the ticket. He was questioned where he had purchased it, and said he would call again. He has not since turned up.

BACK TO NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 1 August 1924

BACK TO NATURE. For the past two weeks a man at St. Kilda, Melbourne, has been ter rifying women by appearing in the streets without clothing late at night. He seems immune from the freezing weather. On Monday night he sprang out from a lane and stood in front of a young woman in Meredith-street. She was too terrified to scream and ran wildly to the nearest house. Although the police are searching they have failed to find any trace of the back-to-nature disciple.
