CHILDREN'S DAY [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928
CHILDREN'S DAY The wind whistled along and blew up fine brown dust, but hundreds of healthy youngesters did not mind, as they romped in St. John's Church grounds, Gundagai, on Saturday last. It was Children's Day, and freshfac ed youngsters 'from Darbalara, Nan gus, Edwardstown, Back Station Creek, Jugiong, Coolac, Jackalas, North and South Gundagai, came up smiling to take part in the day's do ings. The forenoon hours were given over to play, and then came refreshments. Lots of the young sters brought no lunch, but the ladies soon fixed them up. Then the clas ses were sorted out. In St. John's hall the Rev. S. J. West, of Wagga, had a class of 100 children, instruct ing them. In another portion of the building Rev. C. S. Robertson, or ganising secretary, had another class. In St. John's Church ReV. F. W. Ret tie, of Tumut, was telling a gather ing of children the doctrine of the church, whilst out o,n the green sward, and sheltered from the wind, Rev. G. F. Pyke, of Adelong, held c...
Life Outback [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928
Life Outback It would certainly surprise us if we knew the 1 number of people in Australia who never saw a real buck ing horse in action, and probably this is why such interest is taken in American films whei'e broncho busting incidents are featured. Yet the real wild horse days in U.S.A. are just as much of the past as buck jump riding in Australia, and in both countries the motor has caused a decrease in horse power. A time will come when our entertainment seekers will cheer locally-made films in which a dashing horsebreaker and rider will perform marvellous stunts after the style of Tom Mix and Fred Thompson, but our great riders of the past will have disappeared and prob ably their names will be forgotten. There are still buck jump riders in Australia, but few of them are in the same class as the roughriders of the past. This is not their fault. Probably they are just as skilful, but they have not the opportunity to display that skill like the bygone horsemen. There was a time w...
ON THE LAND [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928
ON THE LAND There are enough young rabbits in the old wooden culverts between Gundagai and Tumut to again stock up the whole district. ? ♦ ? Despite the optimism of the auc tioneers, it looks as if the market for wool this season will Show a big drop. ? ? ? Several Gundagai district landown ers are sowing Sudan grass. If we are going to have a dry time the grass will be very handy. ? ? ? Sold at Homebush on Thursday: Ac. R. W. Harvey, Muttama, 119 lambs at 20/9, 14 shorn wethers and hoggets at 19/10, 125 shorn ewes at 17/5. Ac. J. McDonald, Tumblong, 12 vealers at £8/14/4. » ? ? Mr. Aub. Naughton who has se cured the racecourse farming leases, is putting the whole of the area un der Sudan grass. Mr. Naughton has also an area of 100 aores under the same grass at his Wagra holding. ? ? ? A consignment of 70 pedigreed rabbits — Angoras and chinchillas — has left Lady Watson's stud farm in Yorkshire (Eng.) for a New Zealand rabbit farmer. The rabbits, for which £10 each was pail, are un...
POLITICAL PIPS [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928
POLITICAL PIPS We often think over how John J Lang, when he was the Premier of , this State, fooled the people of Gun- j dagai, Junee and Nangus in respect to that line of railway, or concrete road, he was going to put down from Gundagai to Junee. We were all well fooled, and must admit that Lang 'put one over' on us. But he will never do so again, for the future is not reserving the Pre mier's chair for John. ? ? ? While the Patents Bill was re ceiving the consideration of the com mittee in the Senate, Senator Dun can drew attention to the difference in design of the coat of arms on the schedule of the bill, and on the mat at the entrance to Parliament House. He desired to know which was cor rect. 'The kangaroo on the mat looks as if it doesn't know the emu, ana does not wish to,' he said. Senator Foil remarked that the 'roo was look ing towards Queanbeyan. 'Where he can get a drink,' chipped in Senator Graham. Then all hands smacked their lips and cackled. * * * Jack West, the Eas...
CROWDED CHURCH AT NANGUS [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928
CROWDED CHURCH AT NANGUS On Friday evening the Festival was continued at Nangus. There was not an empty seat in the littls church of St. Paul. The Rev. F. W. Rettie preached. He recalled Ezekiel's por trayal of the Christ as the I'.iver of Life, cleansing, beautifying and nour ishing all humanity. As our rivers had their origin in the showers of rain that descend from the skies, cleansing the natural growth and washing their way through the coun try iri channels, beautifying the coun try, eventually empty themselves in the mighty ocean, which never fills but returns to the heavens in evapora tion, so Christ came forth from the Father to cleanse and beautify our personal, home and; national life. Though parted from us His power is felt in the world through our wit ness.
HOEM MISSION FESTIVAL COOLAC IN FESTIVAL MOOD [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928
HOME MISSION FESTIVAL I Ullllllllllllllllltltllttlllllllllllllllliiiiiiiiiiiiimfliiimiiiitmim I COOLAC IN FESTIVAL MOOD On Thursday last, , Coolac had its Festival. Although the main outline was the same at all centres through out the Festival, each centre had its own special features and its own encouragements. Coolac was very bright. S. Jude's was full for Com Dline. which was read bv the Rector. The Registrar preached, his subject, 'Drawing God,' introduced by a semi-humorous of a little girl who tried to draw God, quite confident 'they'll know what He is like when I've finished.' 1 The service was preceded by com munity hymn singing, conducted by the Rev. G. F. Pyke. Mr. Pyke's little practices were a feature of the Festival and its preparation in all centres. All three speakers whilst dealing with the same subjects as at Jugiong treated them rather differently. Mr. Rettie spoke of the continuing wit ness for righteousness that the church must bear in the Home, the Community, an...
THE LASH FOR LANG [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928
THE LASH FOR LANG John Lang, 'the old man on La bor's back,' emerged from his con finement last week, and, in splenetic mood, made a foul, lying and cow ardly attack on Premier Bavin. Lang's remarks were a disgrace — the outpourings of a soured, smallsoul ed politician, who has lost all sense of decency, and a man who revels in bathing in a cesspool, breathing its foetid air. The unfortunate part is that Labor will be blamed for the wrathful outpourings of Lang; it 'Will have to bear the stigma that will attach to Lang's libel, whilst we feel sure 90 per cent, of the rank and iftle will resent the rantings of one who is Labor's leader in name only. -The man who has so disgraced him self dare not utter his vile slanders ..outside his coward's castle. Pro tected by Parliament any member .may give tongue to vile attacks on the honesty of clean honest men ; but surely the time has came when this freedom from the law's punish ment should be abolished. We talk about the lash for men who b...
IN THE EDITOR'S DEN THE FORGOTTEN DEBT [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928
IN THE EDITOR'S DEN THE FORGOTTEN DEBT 'You have your farms, your sta tions arid your businesses ? When you pass out you will leave all be hind — that is inevitable,' So spoke \ the Rev. C. S. Robertson, at the C.E. ' Rally at Jugiong, last week. He 1 was not asking his hearers to put j something in the hat, but was trying to pelt them with the truth that the man who imgaines he will live for _ ever, and get a free pass into the Heavenly dress circle is as blind as a ? bat. But whilst the reverend gentleman put the spiritual side of the question, we want to exhibit a material one. In Gundagai we have a half-finished soldiers' memorial, the cost of erection of which will run to only £1200, yet the men who are 'carrying the dummy for the baby,' can see little prospect of getting sufficient to pay up the contractor. The once grateful public of this dis trict have hardened their hearts, and, ?with one exception, the people who have the means, have not done their duty. Hard words may fla...

JUPP'S REPENTENCE [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928
JUPP'.S REPENTENCE Senator Jupp Gariner, striking his bosom violently ,and crying 'mea- culpa,' has come to the political peni tent stool, and, before the assembled multitude, asks remission of all his political sins. It is a sort of death bed repentence, for Senator Gar diner has, for 10 years, stood by and has witnessed 'the Labor guillo tine chop off the heads of all -the leaders . of the movement. He now talks of getting back to the Labor movement as it was in the days of good old Jim McGowan, but Jupp offered no protest when the rabble, as it did nearly 2000 years ago, cried out, 'Let Barrabas go free.' We look more in sorrow than anger at the attitude Senator Gardiner now assumes, end if he helps to turn the Labor movement from the road of destruction along which it is run ning, he may lay the flattering unction to his soul that he has in his old age-, done something to wipe . out the political misdeeds of the past 10 years.

JUST SEE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 24 September 1928
JUST SEE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE When the Gundagai district farm ers who voted against the Compul sory Wheat Pool rest under their favorite gum trees, next Sunday — after attending church, of course — they may indulge in day dreams of the wonders they have accomplished, as does the small boy, with a cata pult, who has visions of routing a well-trained army. Before the sell ing season is over the farmers are going to find something biting them, and they will be roused from their mid-summer day's dream, to find that they have, with their little bal lot axes, cut down the trees that would have sheltered them in the times of trouble now evident. Let us once more hammer home the fact that no single indivdual is greater than a combined body, and no un drilled, undisciplined mob, -no matter what be its numbers, will be amal . gamated in a scrap with a solid, well trained body. With a huge world's Burplus this season's wheat prices in N.S.W. will give farmers very little profit — every farmer wi...

Vera com menced to prepare San Bran for her breakfast. When pouring it from the packet she tipped some of it on va plate, and, when doing so, the lolly fell out. She said, 'What a funny thing; there was a lolly in that.' She picked up the lolly and tossed it into her mouth. She said, 'It had 'a hor rible taste.' She then ate some of the San-Bran, and said, 'I can't take any more,' and tipped the remainder out into the scraps. She took a drink of tea after, and she didn t want any more, end said again tha...

Last week at Parramatta police court, Bob was fined £20, with £5 ? costs, on a dharge of having driven a motor car while under the influence of liquor.

' The jury, after three and a half hours' retirement, found accused guil ty, on the second count, causing bod ily, harm through misconduct. j In passing sentence his Honor Judge Coyle said:' — 'Drunken driv ers are becoming a menace to the community. I cannot help feeling that there is a growing idea amongst motorists that, if they take too much they can get out of it by having a previous good character. That spirit I must stamp out. I owe a duty to the community. Three months goal is the least sentence I can impose for it.' ' '
