SHEARING RABBITS [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 10 September 1928
' SHEARING RABBITS Anent the news that a number of Angora rabbits are being imported to New Zealand. Shorn four times a year, they yield -'it each sharing about lib. of wool, worth 30/-. a lb. Truthful Walter says:— ''I 'used to shear a lot of rabbits when I was- ' in Angora. The last shed I shore at was Angostura, an:; I was the riiiger o? the shed. Four thousand a day ; was my tally. We were paid £2 a thousand with double rates for buck rabbits. Getting the wool vd' the ? ears was the worst part. I had to knock it 'off at the finish. 1 had a rabbit down and I was just coming up the side for the long blow when the d; mn think kicked me. If it hadn't been for half a dozen Angosturiims holding that rabbit back he'd have , torn me to pieces. I got a broken leg end no compensation — except purple certificate from the King of Angora, but you can't count that. I gave it up after I went to Austria to hunt ostriches; but it's a good game for anyone that's got the physique.

COUNTRY KILLING [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 10 September 1928
COUNTRY KILLING ?itimiiiimitiimitiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiimtiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiitiiiimn Mr: Jas. Edwards, representing Country Killed Meat, Ltd., has been been in Gundagai district dux-ing the past week, discussing the proposition with stockowners, who have shown, great interest in the Company's pros pectus. There is nothing new in the pro posal to kill and chill meat in the country instead of sending the live stock to be marketed in. Sydney. Indeed, it has been tried, and has not px-oved altogether a commercial success. That is an argument that it can be depended upon will be rais ed against the proposition. The promoters meet this effectively, inasmuch as this company will oper ate in different parts of the State. A general drought is a rarity, hap pily, and when fat stock may not be available in one part they can be procured in another. It would seem, then, that the company can depend upon continual operation. Furthermore, the scheme proposed is vex-y comprehensive. Country Killed Meat, ...

FOOTBALL TUMUT AGAIN DEFEATS WAGGA Yestex-day Wagga made this sea son's final attempt to lift the O'Far rell Cup from Tumut, but were de feated by 14 points to 7. The day was rather hot for football, and the heat told on the players long before the final bell. Both teams went on to the field with their full force, both being confident of success. Wagga kicked off and play re mained in centx-e for a few minutes. Tumut wex-e awarded a free for an illegal tackle and Gilbert landed a good goal (Tumut 2, Wagga nil).

Wednesday afternoon last, the 29th International Eucharistic Con gress was opened at St. Mary's Cathe dral, Sydney, in ? the presence of a congregation stated to number over 10,000, whilst outside over 30,000 failed to secure admission to the Cathedral. The rush to secure entry into the Cathedral was like a football scrum. Long- before lunch a huge crowd was waiting outside, and at 2 p.m. over 50,000 people were pushing their way towards the Cathedral gates. When the doors were opened there came a tidal wave — men, women and chil dren struggled to get in. Holders of Congress tickets, who believed their bits of cardboard were 'Open Sesames,' found they could not se cure entry — a special ticket had to be presented. To men and women from country dioceses this was a big set-back, as it was the people 'who knew' got the special tickets .which admitted them. Our own dio cese was badly served, an...
OBITUARY MR. JACK GREENWELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 10 September 1928
OBITUARY MR. JACK GREENWELL. The death of Mr. Jack Greenwell yesterday (Sunday) came as a big shock to his very many friends, as few were aware he was ill. He com plained of a cold all week, but only on Saturday did he keep to his room — bronchitis mtss the trouble. Dr. Owen was in attendance, r-nd on Sunday called in Dr. Byrne in con sultation, but they only gave a slim mer of hope. Mr. Greenwell had been gassed at the war, which left him with a weak heart; it failed under the strain of this illness, and he passed away 'at midday. He was nursed with loving care by his wife and her moth er. Jack, as he was more familiarly known, was a general favorite with all. He was a reserved man and did not take any very prominent part in the affairs of the town, although in his unassuming way he helped in a pre ctical manner. He just lived for his home, wife and family. He is another to pay the penalty of the after effects of the war. V'hen he enlisted in 1915 (from Canowindra) he was a pez-iec...

EXPLOSION AT PORT KEMBLA HUGE BLAST FURNACE BLOWS OUT, AND RELEASES BOILING INFERNO With a terrifying explosion that shook the earth, and was heard a mile away, the huge tap holes of the new 800-ton pig-iron blast furnace at the Port Kembla steelworks blew out on Thursday afternoon. . Eighteen men were burned — four seriously — by the white-hot slag and molten metal that swept over the ground for a radius of 50 feet. Hundreds of tons of bubbling metal were shot from the gigantic furnace, as if from a volcjano, and it is considered miraculous that not one of the men working nearby was buried alive in the metal, which covered the ground to a depth of over a foot. Molten metal flowed over the rail way lines, cooled qujckly, and parts were covered with huge sheets - of iron a foo'c. thick Armed with oxy-acetylene cutting machines, a gang of men cut out the metal in blocks, which were shifted by a crane. The four men most seriously in jured were : — James Derris, Acheson-street, Wol long...
