No one was' injured. The worst happening was at Messrs. Lindley Bros.' woolsheo, South Gundagai. They had 600 sheep under cover, waiting for Monday's shearing, when the gale blew in the whole side of the structure, but only four sheep, were killed . The big .maize shed at Mrs. W. Barton's home, South Gundagai, was unroofed, so was a cottage owned by Mr. Fred. Brooke. I Yesterday we had more nasty j zephyrs which got out 'of hand, and to-day the breezes are cold and win try.

WHERE OUR WOOL GOES WOOL AND FABRIC PRICES [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928

WHERE OUR WOOL GOES i WOOL AND FABRIC PRICES Wincheombe, Carson Ltd., report: The wool market' is constantly blam ed for the increased price of fab rics compared with pr6-war times. Even at the peak point of last sea son average 64's merino. wools on a clean basis only cost buyers ' in Great Britain 75 per cent, more than in 1914. The price of an indigo serge cloth made 'from that type of raw material was 4/6 per. yard in the British Isles in 1914 and latterly was 8/11, a rise of 98 per cent. From those figures it does not look 'as though the wool market is the great est contributor to' the rise in the price of 'the finished goods. Manu facturing costs have been the chief - force. They admittedly are a diffi- ? cult item to curtail. But the con stant criticism of the wool market does not alter the fact that advanced manufacturing expenses and handling charges for goods in transport a^d in wholesale and retail 'establish ments are far greater factors in the price of fabrics than the ...

HOW PROHIBITION WORKS -Here are a few new stories which picture the actual working of Pro hibition in the United States: — The Fort Madison (Iowa) 'Demo- crat,' of May 23, says editorially: — 'The writer had the opportunity - of sitting in Juvenile Court for an hour yesterday afternoon 'while Judge John M. Rankin was hearing a matter in the juvenile delinquency. It would have been an eye-opener for many of our people to have been ther. Two boys and two girls told of a drinking party in which five of them engaged last Sunday. One of the witnesses was 20 years old, two were' 17, and one 16.
