OUR TRAIN SERVICE. Mr Angus Protests. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 September 1915

OUR TRAIN SERVICE. Mr Angus Protests. Mr Angus, M.P., spoke as follows in the Legislative Assembly last week in connection with the cur tailment of the railway services :— 1 must join in the protest against taking away the privileges of the country people. It is very appro priate that we should have a map of the metropolis hanging on the wall, for this Ministry has demonstrated to the House that it is a city Ministry, and that it is only work ing in the interests of centralization. I am becoming very tired of this continual hammering away at the country districts and the increased taxation placed 011 the farmers from time to time. We cannot but realise that this increase of freights and fares is another direct charge 011 the country communities. It is time that the people teok into their con sideration whether it is not wise at this particular time to suspend the work of electrifying the suburban railways. I feel that the deficit is ^rowing, because we have to find about ,£50,000 to...

Points in Passing. (Written Specially for the " Northern District Standard ") The danger of masquerading as a woman was seen at the Ashlield Police Court, Sydney, the other day when a young married man was sentenced to six months' imprisonment without the option of a tine. One Henry Wiles impersonating Miss Kate Smart, made certain false representations by which he obtained a ten pound note from one Walter Robinson, and was further charged with decoying young girls to his premises by spurious advertise ments. At the police Court he pre tended it was all a huge joke, but Mr Smithers, the presiding magistrate, was not inclined to endorse this view, and said to Wiles, "Vou think this was only a foolish prank. 1 don't. You not only tried to swindle people, but it also looked suspicious to have those young girls about the house. You are evi detit'y a daugeroue character, and 1 sentence you to six months' imprison ment witti hard labor. ' The launching of the new destroyer Torrens at Cock...

1 The Man on the Land. || Australian Mercantile, Land and Finance Co., Ltd. The Season Reviewed. Yorkshire buyers, with a little sup port from Japan, were practically lifting the whole of the wool offered, and were now able to - pick and choose then- lots, with the result that for some wools it was impossible to get a bid at auction. Shipping facilities were also getting more restricted. It was thought at this time that sales would have to be again suspended, but. the brokers very wisely decided to go on with smaller- catalogues of selected wools most suitable for-the demand, with the result that the tone of the market showed a distinct^ improvement at the sale on the ~i 6th November. Competition showed a wider range, and prices improved 5 to 10 per cent, for all best lleecc wool, come backs and crossbrcds still being in most demand. There is no doubt that, by curtailing the offerings and carefully selecting wools to be offered, the market was saved from any further slump, which wou...

Taf feta in almost every shape is ■ also being utilised while messoline, peati de cynge, pongee silk, crepe de chene, etc., are largely called into p!ay.

Thov smile and speak as if they fain Would have us think their wounds were gain. But, oh! behind that smile is pain. —Inshallah Roc. (Egypt.)
