MEN'S DETACHABLE COLLARS. How a Huge Business was Founded. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933

MEN'S DETACHABLE COLLARS. How a Huge Business was Founded. . Until' a hundred years or so ago, the detachable collar which now adorns mankind was unknown. It appears that a humble woman in America first had the inspiration. Some time about 1825 it occurred to Hannah Montague, of Third-street, Troy, U.S.A., that her husband's shirts stayed clean longer than the collars' , which formed part of them. Forth with she severed the Gordian knot for all time, and began to make the good man's collars as a separate item from ? lift shirts. Orlando Montague continued to be sole wearer of the mode, till after a few years a wandering minister of the Gospel came across him, gave up his pastoral work, and promptly put the new detachable collars on the market. rne name or tne cute minister seems lost to fame, but the city of Troy to day has its reward in its huge collar trade, - which is estimated at 80 per cent, of that of the whole of the United States. The minister started in business in n .. the...

PORT HUON OVERSSEAS TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933

PORT HUON OVERSSEAS TRADE While giving the Esperance Muni cipal Council every credit for its desire to encourage the visits of overseas fruit steamers to Port Huon by remitting the tonnage dues on all vessels making that port its last port for lifting apples for the overseas markets, we do not anticipate any rush of ships as the result of the concession. ..The fact - that the amount of the charge would hardly ever exceed £20, and that such a sum of money would not pay the crew's wages, for -a single, day, is not likely to cause shipowners to call at Port Huon if they had not for other reasons already decided to. do so. The only effect of the resolu tion, therefore, would be to reduce the revenue of the wharf without giving any compensating advantage. Cr. J. W. Rowe, in opposing the proposition, rightly pointed out that if any l eduction in the' earnings of the wharf were found possible, they should be applied to relieving the charge made to fruitgrowers. Some thing like £10,000 has ...

SOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933

SOLD. Jumping at conclusions sometimes lands1 one in a hole. A farmer was sitting outside his house trying a finger exercise which he had been told would drive rheuma tism from his ancient digits. - A - passer-by. approached liim. x - Noticing the old man's gesticula-' tions, the stranger concluded that here was a deaf mute. Drawing an envel-' ope from his pocket, lie wrote: 'I want a quart of milk.' The farmer read it and got the milk. 'How much?' wrote the stranger. The farmer held up six fingers. The man handed him sixpence, and as he started down the path heard the farmer call to liis wife: 'Mary, Tve just sold a quart of that sour milk to a. dummy.' ' , ' Mrs. Dulham was . complaining that 1 she could riever find topics for conver sation. ., 'Why don't you read books?' asked a friend. , 'What kind of books?' -' ?: 'Oh, biographies and histories, and sp on.' ) / Tne irmt or tnis aavice was eviaent a few days later when a visitor called.

TASMANIA AGAIN PENALISED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933

TASMANIA AGAIN PENALISED. At the December meeting of the J Esperance Municipal Council re ference was made by Cr. B. O. Plummer and other members to the grossly unfair allotment of space that has been apportioned Tasmania for the monthly shipment of fruit to the overseas market for the sea son 1934. With the view of pre venting a repetition of the disastrous glutting of the ^ markets that . oc curred this year, the Australian Apples and Pears Council decided to fix a quota for each of the export ing States /for the coming season. With this decision no one who has a knowledge of the circumstances could reasonably find fault, but the manner in which the quotas were arrived at calls for an emphatic pro test on behalf of Tasmania, as this State has been most unfairly treated.' In the first place experience . ; has shown that the early boats almost invariably show better returns than the later ones. The obvious attitude for the growers to adopt towards this circumstance would be to ship ...

Correspondence TARIFF PROBLEMS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933

Correspondence i , TARIFF PROBLEMS. To the Editor. i Sir,— Letters , recently, broadcast i in the press stated that our butter, cheese, eggs, bacon, ham, fruits, and j other , primary produce have, throjagh : being sold- abroad, for less than they bring here, enabled other nations to ! produce cheaper goods. The writer, who is an ardent freetrader, ap parently recognises — if only dimly — that tariffs are beneficial to the farmer by raising internal . prices. European nations are, of course, wil ling to pay only world parity for primary products not grown within their own borders. What they raise or make themselves is highly pro tected. It is astonishing, therefore, that anyone should suggest— as he did — that goods '^from: high tariff European countries should enter Australia free of duty. The writer of these, letters states that tariffs are 'a great contraption according to protectionists' — that they, put up the price of butter and keep down the cost of galvanised iron and other ...

Our Fruit Representatives AS SEEN BY OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933

Our Fruit Represen tatives AS SEEN BY OTHERS. In a recent issue of 'Fruit Cul ture, a New South Wales publication pen pictures are given of the dele gates who attended the conference of ? apple growers representing each of the States of the Commonwealth. The Tasmanian representatives are thus described: — . Mr B. J. Pearsall, vice-president, proved himself a man of typical 'cornstalk' farmer type, serious, transparently sincere, and ready to 'keep the gate' with Horatius if necessary. Mr H. A. Court, another grower, might have been a professional man. or an educationalist. Gentlemanly ? in bearing, quiet and incisive as a speaker, his conciliatory manner suggested many of the platform qualities of the chairman, Mr Mills. Mr F. W. Harrison proved to be the diehard- of the conference. More than once he found himself the protagonist of unpopular causes, and his pertinacity, allied to a suspicion of an accent, suggested his kinship with the Scot Owho cried, 'This rock shall fly from its...

Speaking at a meeting of the' Inter- national Chamber of Commerce at Vienna, Lord Luke, chairman of the British National Committee, said — 'Advertising, when it is issued by the riianufacturers in the form of pub lic announcements, addressed to the consumer, has been proved to be .a ' powerful means of ecoriomy iri distri bution. 'For, by informing the public and di recting demand towards specific and identified products, it exerts a stabilis ing(influence upon demand and enables the manufacturer to organise produc tion with some confidence and to reap the maximum benefit in increased sales.' ? 'In Great Britain, where the market is' compact and where daily news papers cover the whole country, adver tising is not only a powerful but also a flexible force.'

THE GAY BANDIT OF THE BORDER A Thrilling Romance of the Mexican Border Country. (Published by Special Arrangement) [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED] PROLOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 28 December 1933

THE GAY BANDIT OF THE BOEDER A Thrilling1 Romance of the Mexican Border Country. By TOM GILL. (Published by Special Arrangement.) [ALL RIGHTS 'RESERVED.] PROLOGUE. In a patch of moonlight the masked rider halted. - Just ahead, just beyond the fringe of shadowy herbage that skirted the desert's edge, two dusty wagon tracks led out over the plain. They were all that marked the Yuma-Verdi road, those tracks, and for fifty miles of cactus and sand they were all that recorded the turbulent existence of an international boundary line. But now, like faded, discarded ribbons, they stretched, lonely and indistinct, across the desert, then dropped abruptly over the edge of the path. Minutes passed. The tall rider sat - motionless — a brooding statue, silvered with moonlight. Only the eyes roved — eyes that glittered restlessly through the mask, tirelessly search ing that- velvet darknesB ahead. A - fitful night wind crept along. Once the horse pawed impatiently at the sand, and once he raised...
