PAID IN FULL Nineteen years ago, on December H, 1894, Mr J. W. Cook, an ambitious young man of twenty-six, was dismiss ed from an office in "Wolverhampton, where he was engaged in the railway contracting business. His dismissal was followed by his being declared a bankrupt. On Wednesday last, December 17 (says "The Daily Mail")Mr Cook,middle aged and prosperous, entered the Of ficial Receiver's office at Wolverhamp ton and presented the Receiver with a chequc for £800, which will pay his creditors twenty shillings in the pound and all the cost in connection with the bankruptcy proceedings. The £S00 represents not a sudden windfall, hut money saved bit by bit by a man with a fine respect for his good name and that of his wifo and children. "The day I was dismissed is very vivid in my merory," said Mr Cook. "We were all looking forward to Christ mas Day. I was earning good money and we were expecting an addition to our family.

AMERICAN TRADE - MORE UNEMPLOYMENT THAN CJTVTWO 1 GA*7 "fPreBldent "Wilson expects to sign the Currency Bill in about a fortnight, so that the nation may have this long wlshed-for and much discussed mea sure for giving greater freedom and flu idity to credit as its Christmas present for 1913 (says the New York correspon dent of "The Daily News," December 9). The delay In Inducing the Senate to end its deliberations, due to the bank ers' fear that the Bill would estab lish too much political control, has been one of the chief obstacles to the general resumption of business activity. Indeed, industrial conditions, as indicated by the railway returns, the investment market, and the number of laborers out of work, are extremely depressed. It is stated that there are more unem ployed in the Middle West as well as the Eastern States than in any year since 1907. This applies particularly to railways, in consequence of the re trenchment policy by most of the com panies, while reports from C...

The Rainbow Argus PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14. 1914. NEWS AND NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

Published Every .Saturday SATURDAY. FEBRUARY 14. 1914. NEWS AND NOTES ® The storages, from which the town ship of Rainbow draws its water supply, have been reduced to an extremely low limit, and on Thursday the reservoirs only contained 2 feet of the precious liquid. Some weeks ago pumping opera tions were commenced at lJooen for the purpose of sending water along the Dooen-Kalkeo channel, thence on to Rainbow. The w;>rk had only been in progress a short time when, owing to a mishap to the machinery at the JDooen station, pumping had to be discontinued. The engine at the Dimbuola pumping works, which is only used in cases of emergency, was then set in motion for the purpose of pumping water along the Katyil channel; and the water travelled somewhat slowly until it reached Katyil north. The engine at Dooen was, in the meantime, repaired, and now water is being pumped from both sources, with the result that it is travelling much faster. Mr. B. L. Tonkin, who is in charge of the ope...

A large box, branded Voile and Co., contained her hat. Two large travel ling trunks occupied further space. The family were gathered together at Southbourne. Mr. Gordon Price and Philip were staying at an hotel hard by, and Beryl, who seemed affected with a chronic redness of her eyelids, had obtained a room in the same house as her mother and Queenie. Michael Thorne was bearing a"\ ex penses—it was his party—though the fact was transparently glazed over by the fiction that Mr. Price had been recently successful in business opera tions in the city. Early that afternoon Michael Thorne, accompanied by the friend who was to figure as best man, had motored down from London.
