Industrial Progress of the North. TIN MINERS FEELING EFFECT OF SLUMP. Returns Too Small. Inverell Mines Fare Badly, but Outlook is More than Promising. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
industrial Progress o( me (ill ! oVCV ^ TIN MINERS FEELING EFFECT OF SLUMP. Returns Too Small. Invereli Mines Fare Badly, but j Outlook is More than j Promising. j Stannifer is feeling the slump in tin keenly, and the position is intensified by the acute shortage of water, says a correspondent of the l'nverell "Times." Tin buyers are very disinclined to operate, and if they can be induced to accept a parcel of the metal, the price they advance is not exactly calculated to render any one delirious with joy. Many mining people are complaining at these unsatisfactory conditions, con tending .that it is impossible to pay wages and carry on with the meagre advances buyers are prepared to make. \Mr. Syd. Cooper, of the Standard dredge, however, is not of the gloomy ones. Work on his dredge has been suspended since the Christmas season, but operations will be again commenced on Monday next. Mr. Cooper is not concerned at the price of tin, but the shortage of water. If water was plentiful, ...

WORK AT NEWSTEAD TIN MINE. Good Progress Being Made. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
WORK AT NEWSTEAD TIN MINE. Good Progress Being Made. The leases of the Newstead tin mine embrace 250 acres, mineral, dredging and deep leads. It has been held by Mr. iStratton for about three years. On this property there are immense out crops, two chains wide to half a anile in length, all of which are carrying ti;i values. Four months ago it was de cided to test one of these outcrops, and, with that end in view, a prospecting shaft was sunk to a depth of 50 feet, passing through highly -payable milling ore. It was then decided to come along the line of reef ]50ft., and sink a main three-compartment shaft 10 x 4 inside the timber in a more convenient .posi tion. This shaft is now down 00 feet, and has passed through some very rich ore. There is also a shaft sunk some 400 or 500 feet from the main shaft, and the reef cut in two places, viz., at 190 feet and 270 feet levels, each containing good tin values. A sluicing plant is also being erected. Already a boiler and pump have been i...

(( Falkland 19 The "FALKLAND" is obtainable i from ALL Storekeep er s. Without one the home is incomplete. Pcrfcct Refrigerator. EXCELLENCE OF CONSTRUCTION is the primary consideration when purchasing a Refrigerator. An essential in this direction is the TIMBER employed and the time allowed for THOROUGHLY SEASONING SAME. The "FALKLAND" differs from all other Refrigerators on the market, in so far that it is the ONLY REFRIGERATOR made of QUEENSLAND MAPLE —the Pride of Australia's Timbers — thereby adding an ornamental piece of furniture to the home. In building a Refrigerator, WORKMANSHIP is, next to timber, the most important consideration. For this reason the " FALKLAND" is MADE BY JOINERS and not by juniors in the wood-working trade. The INSULATION of the "FALKLAND" is an adaptation of the best methods for insuring a perfect draught of cool air. The internal fittings of the "FALKLAND" are made of strong galvanised steel, the workmanship of HIGHLY SKILLED MECHANICS. Each particular...

The Enemy Within the Gates. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
The Enemy Within the Gates. It may fairly be assumed that the entire population of Australia received a painful shock, accompanied by a feel ing of deep disappointment, when the faSt became known during the last few days that, despite the resolute and de termined light maintained by the Federal Quarantine Officials for over two months, the scourge of pneumonic •influenza had at last found a weak spot in our defences, through which it had forced an entry into our midst. As far as the information at present available can be relied upon, it would appear that the invasion of this State by the disease is attributable to laxity on the part of certain Health Officials in Mel bourne; but whether this view be cor rect or not need not now be considered. When the proper time arrives step will, of a surety, be taken by a duly consti tuted tribunal to make a searching en quiry into the whole of the circum stances under which the disease was al lowed to break the bounds of quaran tine, and place ...

NORTH COAST S.N. The North Coast iSteam Navigation Company's shares are a fairly good in vestment, and should improve later. Buyers are offering 27/-, while sellers are holding out for 27/3. This is a lower figure than that which prevailed a few months ago, but there seems no likelihood of the shares going, at a cheaper 'price than this week's. The rate of return on investments worked out at 6% per cent, on the 9 per cent, dividend declared.
SUSSEX STREET PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
SUSSEX STREET PRICES. A rather quiet tone pervaded most sections of the Sussex-street wholesale markets. Buyers made steady inquiries, but there was certainly no rush for sup plies. Late high rates were quoted for for age and grain. Large orders were re ceived from drought-stricken areas. All kinds of dairy produce were scarce. Unless rains fall during Febru ary the outlook will be 'the darkest that the trade has- had to face for many years. Production is falling off all along the coastal belt.

Of Interest to Women. Care of the Hands. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
9. ^ ^ ^ . =3=s^> Of Interest to Women, f IU/5) I By Mother o* Pearl /Care of the Hands. Beautiful hands are only kept by the exercise of a little daily trouble. But the time so spent pays passing well. At niglit the hands ought to be gently and thoroughly washed in hot rain-water— if the latter is not obtainable, a pinch of the finest borax in the water will prove a good, substitute —then dry well with a soft towel —the Turkish variety is best; next drop a little euu de cologne on the palms, ami massage all over, and finish with dairy cream, or cold ereaan, .but dairy cream is the best unguent .tor massaging either the hands or the face. And widely-fitting white kid gloves, or fine chamois gloves with a hole cut in the palms for ventilation of the pores of the skin, ought to cover the hands during sleeping hours—at least, this precaution is certain to leave the hands more daintily soft, and even white, than any other effort. Washing in milk, after careful ablu tions in warm wate...
GOLD FROM THE SANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
GOLD FROM THE SANDS. It is stated that another effort will be made to extract gold from the beaches at North Head, near Ballina, and that a Queensland syndicate is interested in the matter. Various attempts have been made in the past to gather the precious metal which is believed to be located there, but so far it has baffled scientists, and many people are sceptical as to it ever being separated in payable quantities from the sand. Already prospecting tenements have been taken out by Messrs. P. and I. C. Cudbird and W. Bedford.
COMMERCE & BUSINESS CAUSES OF SLUMP IN WAR LOAN SCRIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
COMMERCE & BUSINESS causes of slump in war loan scrip. The chief item of interest this month has been the pronounced slump in War Loans, state Joseph Palmer & 'Sons, of Sydney. Sellers of the four descriptions have been unusually plentiful, ana, though buyers have also been more numerous than heretofore, the market has been over-weighted. The excessive i selling is not due to any scarcity of money for investment. On the contrary, money for this purpose is plentiful, as is shown by the fact that many first class investments, including the shares of six Banks, two Gas, two Steamship over twenty Industrial, and one or two Goal, Companies have advanced appreci ably since the 15th December last, while we can only think of one that has suffered even an insignificant s'lt-back. War Loan and, to a lesser extent, Go vernment Stock which has eased some what in sympathy, have been the sole exceptions to the general rule of im proving prices. The explanation lies in the fact tha...
Apathetic Farmers in North. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
Apathetic Farmers in North. (From our Inverell Correspondent.) The farmers of this district are dis playing a very poor interest in their organisations—the P.P. Union and the FjS.A. At the annual meeting of the former, held last week, the attendance was only eight, and the president de plored the apathy of the men on the land in their organisations. He stated that unless the farmers rally around their unions they cannot hope to secure any of the reforms necessary for the men in the interior. The bag ques tion and the handling of produce at the Alexandria yards were burning questions, each of which would take all tlie organisation of which the producers were capable if the successful hand ling of the problems was to be achieved. The bag reform asked for would mean a change from the customs that had prevailed for over 50 years, and a reform of that nature would not be brought about without some fighting. inns
