DRIFTING. (Originally published in the "Sunday Times.") [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 13 December 1924
DRIFTING. (Originally published in the "Sunday Times.") &nbsp; Where are we drifting to—you and I? Oh, bright is the sky, and the earth is fair, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; And the perfume of summer is in the air, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; While the golden moments fly. The music of life has a tender theme; It steeps our souls in a blissful dream; We are drifting, you and I. &nbsp; Ah! but the summer will pass away; We soon must come where the currents cross, And our hearts will break with the sense of loss. &nbsp; When the winter skies are gray The music will change to a dirge of woe, &nbsp; &nbsp; A requiem of happiness long ago; Yet, I dare not bid you stay! Love does not pass with the summer- tide; &nbsp; It does not die when the roses fall, And my heart will answer you when you call Though you're distant from my side. And when the tide of my life turns...

Sydney Wool Bales. V KEEN CLOSING MARKETS The Secretary, Farmers & Graz iers' Co-op. Co. •writes:— We opened the Gtli series of sales of the current wool year, and'the fi nal one before Christmas, at the Wool Exchange on the Stli inst. Our cat alogue included many attractive wools from the Tablelands, but the selection generally, covered a wide range of districts, and clips sliowinga fault particularly dust and burr, were much 'in evidence. Super and medium merinos at tracted competition of the most spirited nature and realised values quite in keeping with the highest rates of the season, and in some in stances, particularly for wools show ing supei'fme quality, were on a slightly higher basis. Topmaking merinos when free froym burr also participated in these improved con ditions, but fulty descriptions, espec ially when carrying a generous amount of burr, and of more or less doubtful yield, sold rather irregular ly, and were in many instances difficult of sale. And, unfortu...
