Wheeled Buffets. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
Wheeled Buflets. -4~-- AN innovation which will be gratefully appreciated by many weary railway travellers, especially women with chil. dren, when they are travelling without male escort (and sometimes when such escort is not as solicitous for their com fort as he might be) is contemplated. It is to take the form of providing " wheeled buffets," at the principal railway stations. By this arrangement, tea and other refreshments will be brought to the cairiago windows, so that there will be no need either to leave the carriage or to send to the re freshment room. Little concessions like this are often more valuable than others wrhich are more pretentious.

Local Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
Local Industry. Wz have inspected a motor car that has just been subjected to a complete overhauling and renovation by the firm of Moore Bros., at their garage and workshops in Monaro. street, Queanbeyan. The work, which must satisfy the most fastidious, has been done for a client-Mr. J. Dulhunty, and he is very proud of it. The work included the overhauling of bearings, engine, and driving gear. One feature of the repairs was the welding of a broken frame by the oxy.acety. lene system, which has now come into gen eral use, especially in the motor repairing trade, and this is worthy of special mention. The entire work on this particular car was carried out under the supervision of Mr. Dixon. The painting, which vies favorably with the best metropolitan work, does much credit to the local firm of Messrs. Naylor & Weir. It would be an object lesson to any. one interested in motor cars to look in and inspect this specimen of local industry ; and we are pleased to learn that own...

How to Injure Your Town. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
Hlow to lnjure Your Town. RUN it down to visitors. Go to other places for your supplies. Look sorry when a stranger talks to youof buying property in it. Befuse to see merit in any 'cheme unless you are " big-dog " in it. y Don't invest. Show your distrust by re-. fusing to lay out any money in it. Let your tongue wag idly about your neighbour, without knowing the facts. Cut those whom in your vanity you think beneath you, and split up into classes and cliques. Always refer to your town as " this hole," and, though its population be under 10,000, institute comparisons between it and Sydney, Melbourne, Paris, and New York. Do not assist any new movement. If. however, one should seem likely to succeed start another on the same lines, and so obh. tain a dissipation of energy and a multipli cation of expense. Be eternally on the growl. Even if it is hot, windy, and dusty in every other place in the Commonwealth, speak as though your town was the only one in which, for the time being, su...

Unless rain comes very soon the worst may be expected. The maxi mum readings at the local observing station (No, 2) are frequently up to and over 100 degrees. " Just as we go to press there are indications of a favorable change; but these indications have of late been many, and they have passed off without realisation.

Chiildren's Concert. A CONCERT. in which children were the principal performers, was given on Wednesday night at the Protestant Hall, Queanbeyan. It had been projected a month or so back, the originators and promoters being Mr. and Mrs'A. G. Noble, the proceeds to go towards the Circuit Fund of the Methodist Church. To. Mrs. Noble, especially, belongs the credit of the success which attended the affair. That lady, with long-con. tinued and self-sacrificing exertions, had trained her bevy of girls and a contingent of boys to the top-notch of their work; and the acknowledg ment of her eminent services, and of the efforts'of her hu:'band, made at the close of the entertainment by the Rev. D. C. Hughes was not more generous than merited. Much credit, also, was due to Miss Hazel Jordan and Mr. F. Mathews for their able services as accompanists on the occasion.

Correspondence. WE do not necessary identify ourselves with opinions expressed by our correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
Corresponldence. Ws do not necessary identify ourselves with opinions expressed by our correspondents. SIE,--The effects of the present war are beginning to come home to up. They are manifesting themselves in various ways and will soon be all too apparent in cases of privation and want amongst our own townspeople. Can we, recognising the certainty of this, make an immediate and wise provision for the future by doing something in a definite organised way in the cause of charity. We have no Benevolent Society in Queanbeyan, for instance, and althongh'I have found from ex perience that this society is not always succeseful in its operations, it has often brought a measure of relief where help has been very urgently needed. Fail ing this, would it be possible to start a fund to be designated the "Home Re lief Fund"? (We live in an age of funds, but one more to an already long list may not prove overwhelming). Small charitable efforts could be held from time to time and the proceeds of t...
ALBION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
ALBION. "Britain's action with regard to Ger man bills of exchange adds striking testimony to the villainous, mean, huck stering spirit which has animated Britain in every step she has taken in her history-this false, despicable Al bion, which never tires of posing to the gallery of Europe as the protector of the sanctity of international treaties! But, despite her bluff and bluster, Britain knows full well that her pirati cal economic war is digging her own grave. '"-"Kolnischl Zeitung. .
