THE PITY OF IT [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916

THE PITY OF IT It has been well said that \em ory is left us to sweeten the days of our advancing years. Tha i memories of the past can be equally sweet to all alike is, of course, impossible. But this much is certain tthat many of our painful experiences, when recalled, come with added bitterness because of the knowledge tl.at they might have been avoided. 'This reflection is. prompted by. reading a letter from Mr. W. Hughf, which is typical of many thousands that we have received. from all parts of our scattered Empire. Writing on July 25th, 191S, from 31 Rutland-street, Petrie Terrace, Bris bane Queensland, he said:- "My recollection of Mothet Seigel's Spirup extends back to my boyhood's days, for it was the re medy which my mother used to a-l ways give me whenever anything went amiss with .my health. But my own best experience of it was gained some three years. back in Sydney, N.S.W. I had but recently arrived from the Homeland; and the change of climate, .- diet, , and ethods o...

FREE RAILWAY PASSES LIKELY TO BE RECALLED. Melbourne, Dec. 10. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916

fREE RAILWAY PASSES LIKELY TO BE RECALLED. - Melbourne, Dec. 10. It appears that in his lavish dis tribution of free passes for life on the Commonwealth Railways, £ie late Minister for Home Affairs, Ir. O'Malley. did not conform to the wishes of the Cabinet, and there is a likelihood of some of the badges being recalled. Mr. O'Malley's pro posal was to issue these passes to Ministers, former Ministers and Presidents of the Senate and Speak ers of the House of Representativcs, who have been more than six months in office. He took the scheme to the Federal Cabinet, but his colleagues modified it consider ably. They excluded Presidents and Speakers, and in regard to Minis ters, provided that they should not be entitled to passes until they had been in office for twelve months. Mr. O'Malley, however, gave in structions that the passes should be issued as he originally intended. The Prime Minister, Mr. Hughes, said to-day that he had been told that the passes had been issued to persons o...

(Mr. John Elsbury) has maintained aor a lengthy. perio that the' bottom level froqi .the old incline shaft, sunk by th original Greenfinch Go., :was.: worthy of exploitation. The .ector9 authorlrgis s eSne_3ýiadhr Mil Mr. Eelibury tested the graiind carefully. Driving in tight country however, is unprofitable with hand labour, and the installation of mia chine drills is imperative. An official test of a trial parcel from the bottom level was made to day. 31 tons yielding 20 oz. 17 dwt. by amalgamation. Two tons of con centrates assay 3 oz. per ton, and the sands assay 3 dwt. 15 gr. The average yield is about 1 oz. per ton.
