SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 20 December 1924
SPORTING. Spearfelt.") The handicap foot race on Satur day at the "VVowagin School sports included some "peds," Jack Dale (10 yds.) and Alex. Milne received a bi^ amount of public support, but they were never in the picture. The want of condition, or too much condition, caused them to fall over, and in this way their supporters were let down. After the race I heard..it freely whispered that they were not tryers. Syd. Goodhew on scratch and a one time "ped.," seemed to have a good chance, but bolted off the track at the firs tfurlong. Notwithstanding this Syd. finished in a good position. I understand that there is to be an inquiry into the running of these' three competitors. I think that the stipes might also look into the runn ing of Roy Menzies, who was well supported by the ladies. No doubt that several of the' com petitors are looking ahead for a de cent mark 'in the big 100yds handi cap at the Hibernian sports 011 the 26th December—Boxins Day.

THE HORSE. POSITION IMPROVING. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 20 December 1924
THE HORSE. POSITION IMPROVING. Mr. Comans, hon. secretary, Clydes dale Horae Society (N.S..W. branch), writes as under:— That the position of tlie horse 3s improving is amply demonstrated by the sales which have been talcing place. Particularly so in regard to heavy horses. In Great Britain ex ceptional prices are being secured— ranging from 100 to 160 guineas for geldings. Sydney and Melbourne markets aro very firm for good sorts, whilst at a sale at Wellington (N.S. Wales) at the beginning of the month draughts made to £42. Some 050 horses of all classes were sold at this sale and the lot averaged £12 per head, which, considering the large number or non-descript, un soud and infirm horses usually sub mitted at a big sale, must be consid ered very satisfactory. The best fea ture about the sale, however, was the purchasing of the better classes of district farmers. TRACTORS AND FARM LORRIES. In view of the prospects of a good harvest, motor agents are getting busy endeavouring to se...

Taralga Public School. Annual breaking-up picnic. For some time past the pupils at-1 tending this school have been look ing forward to the day on which they were to break-up school so that they may be able to have a day out amongst the sweets and toys. These are always nearest and dearest to a child's heart. Mr. and Mrs. Sanderson' and Miss Quinn, of the school staff, bad ar ranged a first-class programme which comprised prizes for the best fancy dressed boy and girl, all kinds of athletic events, novelty events, and the greater portion of the day was occupied in getting it off. The picnic was held on the old show ground, which is an ideal spot for picnicking purposes, the tall pines and big shady gum trees providing ample shade for everyone. The day however, was cool,, and shade was not looked for. . Teachers, children, parents, and visitors entered into the sport with the result that the picnic was enjoy ed immensely by everyone.

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 20 December 1924
Death of Mr. Patrick Walsh. The death occurred in St. John of God's Hospital, Goulburn, at an early hour on Tuesday morning of Mr. Patrnck Walsh, of Stone Quarry, after a lengthy illness. The deceased became seriously ill about a couple of years ago and was for a time treated in Goulburn. Sub- sequently he went to Sydney where he was for a time under Dr. Black- burn, specialist, whose treatment, however, was not effectual, or at least he did not improve in the way that he and his friends expected. Eventually he returned to his home about twelve months ago. Though being able to do light duties on his property, Mr. Walsh had been in in- different health, and during the last few weeks gradually grew worse un- til it was found necessary to remove him to St. John of God's Hospital a couple of weeks ago. Notwithstand- ing the untiring and special efforts of the nursing staff aud doctors as well as the spiritual comforts admin- istered by the priests of St. Peter and Paul's Cathedral, the ...
TARALGA. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 20 December 1924
TARALGA. Its early Records may command our tears,— We trace them still, in solid walls of stone, But the "Trail Gang" has vanished with the years, &nbsp; And free-born Citizens have claim- ed their own. Among its hills, it nestles, clean and neat, Its buildings new, or picturesquely old; And here and there, from off its long Main Street, &nbsp; The branching ribbons of its Roads unfold. Its business houses owned by busy men, Their daily news rung in by wire- less chimes, Their interest to strive, and strive again, To keep abreast with evermoving Times. &nbsp; &nbsp; Two Patron Goddesses came, hand in hand. Prosperity, and Keen-eyed Enter prise; They waved their wands across some vacant land, And watched a Butter Factory arise. The district smiles to see its wealth increase. And flags of wide Financial Scope unfurled, When, lorries laden high, the Golden Fleece &nbsp; Goes forth to find the Markets of the World. Soon we will hear, re-echoing fa...

CRITICAL COMMENT. BY ENGLISH CRICKET EXPERT. SURPRISED THAT DOUGLAS SHOULD MAKE THE TRIP. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 10 January 1925
• icAL-' -COM-1 MENT. !. BY ENGLISH CRICKET EXPERT. ■ • SURPRISED THAT DOUGLAS SHOULD MAKE THE TRIP. Mr. Sydney H. Pardon, editor' of "Wisden's," in an interview, said: "It would be impertinent at a distance" of 12,000 miles to criticise the English and . the Australian selectors, owing to unrecorded variations of form, but it appears that what the M.C.C. team loses in the outfield by the omission of Sandham, it will gain in stability in batting and relief for the bowling. It iB incomprehensible why Kilner should have been omitted -from the initial teBt. Tyldesley, also, should have been tried before. What has happened to Bryan? When he left England he was a fine bat and beau tiful field. Douglas is a game fight er, and a great sportsman, but, per sonally, I am st'ill~wondering why he made the voyage to Australia. There are still two first-class batsmen left in the pavilion. . "There is not the slightest chance of introducing the eight-ball over in England., Our players loathe it! I...
