PERSONAL [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 1 November 1924
PERSONAL Mr. H. H. Morduont, our local builder and contractor, is at present &nbsp; in Queanbeyan effecting extensive al- terations to Land's Hotel.

SOCIAL COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 1 November 1924
SOCIAL COLUMN. Mr. and Mrs. Bob Baxter entertain- &nbsp; ed a number of their friends at their residence recently to a social evening. The function was immensely enjoy- ed by the large gathering who were present from Taralga, and the sur- rounding localities. The evening was devoted to dancing instrumental and vocal items. &nbsp; The music and catering were first class, as also were the decorations. Mr. and . Mrs. Jack Kearney enter- tained the members of the Band at their home recently.

Oversea Wheat Position. SPECIAL WHEAT REPORT. Lindley Walker Co-op, Wheat Co., Ltd., report under date 27th Oct:— [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 1 November 1924
Oversea Wheat Position. SPECIAL WHEAT REPORT. &nbsp; Lindley Walker Co-op, Wheat Co., Ltd., report under date 27th Oct:— Our London cable to-day reports the market easy, due to Argentina's rains which they describe as prac- tically general. It states that the United States is the heaviest sup- plier and these supplies outweigh Canada's smaller offerings of lower quality. General rains in Argentina would improve their prospects but it re- mains to be seen whether the crop can recover after the very bad per- iod through which it has passed. Within two or three weeks reliable &nbsp; estimtes regarding Argentina's sur- plus should be available. In the meantime, nervous markets will pre- vail. &nbsp;
Taralga's Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 1 November 1924
Taralga's Progress. The establishment of a local pap- er in Taralga is further evidence of the town's progress, which has been most marked during the past twelve months. The erection of a modern co-oper- &nbsp; ative butter factory at a cost of over £8000 has been the means of cre- ating a flourishing industry in the district. There has also been a noticeable increase in the number of new buildings in the town. Mr. Burge &nbsp; has just had completed in Orchard- street, by the contractor (Mr. H. H. Morduont), three up-to-date cottages, and I understand it is Mr. Burge's intention to build more of a similar kind. Altogether nine new cottages, a garage, and a new shop have been erected within, the last twelve months. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A first-class lecture show is well established under the direction of the proprietor, Mr. H. Bensley. Messrs. Goodhew Bros., the live &nbsp; business firm, are having their prem- ises remodelled. This sh...
Sheep Shearing Competitions and Sheep Dog Trial. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 1 November 1924
Sheep Shearing Competitions and Sheep Dog Trial. An old chap "lobbed" into the off- ice during the week looking for the Secretary of the Hospital. He was as straight as a rush and as nimble as a colt, despite his three score and ten years. When asked his business the old fellow said he had a bit of a pup he wished to enter for the sheep dog trial to be held in the Crookwell Park on Saturday, 8th No- vember. He had the dog with him. "I've always got him with me," he &nbsp; said. "He's a wise dog,'' exclaimed our friend, and he looked it.
(Published by Arrangement.) BREEDING CONTEMPT OF LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 1 November 1924
(Published by Arrangement.) BREEDING CONTEMPT OF LAW. "The agitation in the United States for the repeal of Prohibition," says the Cork "Examiner," "will rise to fever heat. It will become much &nbsp; more burning than the Abolition of Slaves movement. "Easy going and good natured peo- &nbsp; ple are not going to bother or worry so long as they can purchase from the 'lady' or 'gentleman' bootlegger all the liquor they require at fairly reasonable prices. The great evil of prohibition is the contempt of law &nbsp; which it breeds. "Boys and girls in the best soci- ety see their fathers, mothers, and friends violate the prohibition law. They see judges, senators and gov- ernors do the same thing, and they naturally look upon prohibition as a joke, and almost every American youth now goes to dinner or a dance with a flask in his hip pocket. If he fails to do so he has small chance of a partner at any social gathering. "This is an entirely new phase in American s...

THE RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 1 November 1924
THE RAILWAY. The work of the Taralga railway &nbsp; is proceeding satisfactorily and it is confidently expected that most of the earthworks will be completed by Christmas. The Wowagin station yard, which has 1200 yards of filling, is nearing completion, as also is the Straithaird station yard. The con- crete gangs are working on the cul- verts and cattle stops and these will be finished shortly.

CARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 November 1924
CARDS. Presumably, an interesting game of "500" was played one evening last week, the contestants being Messrs. Charley Bradbury and Monty Viles v. Messrs. Jack Kearney and Dick . O'Connor. All four, I understand, are exponents of the game. The con ditions of the match were best two out of three games, winners to have the Tight to free evening at the mov ies and an .oyster supper. After n evenly contested game the latter pair won the "rubber." • The winners boldly assert that they are prepared to engage any other two (they do ndt even draw the colour line) for a similar stake and the championship of Taralga qnd environs Who are the next victims? "Snow" Fitzglbbon, our local Sco bie, at the Crookwell A., P. and H. Society race meeting last Saturday, went within an ace,of catching the double with Quarry. *He won the op ening handicap and was only beaten by a head for the forced. "Snow" evidently means business this year, and looal punters might pick up a few "squid" by keeping the eag...
SPORTING NOTES. FISHING. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 November 1924
SPORTING NOTES. (By "SPEARFELT.") FISHING. Mr. Dick Marmont, one of our lo cal fishing'enthusiasts, while fishing in one ot the local streams (Dick's . favourite possie) during the week end, hooked a fine, trout weighing 7 Jibsi dressed. He also caught sev • oral others, all being a decent size Dick says they were biting well. An glers, look up your lines and hooks. Dick tells an amusing story in con • nection with his fishing excursions. L'-'-I think it's dinkum—concerning a blood-thirsty go between' a kookabur ra and an ordinary-sized snake. The for.mer, which was perched on a limb, after warily watching the move ments of the "reptile for a few sec onds with a view of, I dare say, pre paring an attack and weighing up the position carefully, pounced on his vicious and slick opponent and a pitched battle ensued. The fight was "all in," Jack eventually securing the verdict nd a good square meal. Next please.
