Crookwell Turf Club. OPENING MEETING. DOUBLE TO CUDDYONG. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 21 February 1925
Crookwell Turf Club. OPENING MEETING. DOUBLE TO CUDDYONG. . The Crookwell Turf Club was greet ed with ideal weather for its opening race meeting on Saturday- last. Un fortunately, tiie number of horses com lieting was restricted owing to fix tures fit Tumut und other centres. The racing throughout was very good. The honorary secretary (Mr. Col McDonald) had all the necessary de tails covered. - The stipendiary steward. Mr. Nor man Devlin, took charge of the rac ing. but was not called upon to ex ercise his authority, for any violation of the regulations. '• Mr. S. A. Cullen performed the dut ies of judge with usual satisfaction. Mrs. E. McGratli, of the Commercial Hotel, Crookwell, conducted the pub lican's booth, and afternoon tea was dispensed by Mr. Coleman, of Crook well. The gate takings, £23/12/6,; could easily have been better. Perhaps the price of admission—3/6—was rather ' low. The officials were: Judge, Mr. S. /A. Cullen; clerk of scales Mr. Nat •Churchill; time-keeper, Mr...

An Outback Wedding, MICK—TASSIE. We reprint the following from an &nbsp; exchange:— &nbsp; The much-talked-of wedding be- tween Michael McGuire, Hangman's Gully, and Sarah McTavish (known &nbsp; as Tassie), only daughter of Sandy McTavish, Wombat Creek, took place at the residence of the bride's par- ents on the 1st inst. The wedding took place at 7 p.m., prior to which there was a cricket match between teams from the above places. Rev. Splice performed the cere- mony. &nbsp; &nbsp; The bride looked charming in a red flannelette skirt, with coat to &nbsp; match. She wore the usual veil and &nbsp; carried a spray of budlea. At the request of the bridegroom &nbsp; there were no bridesmaids' gifts. &nbsp; Bride to bridegroom, a cherry wood pipe and a plug of light Havelock. Bridegroom, to bride, a bottle of scent and a tin of insectibane. The whole company sat down to breakfast, and Rev. Splice took com- &n...
A DENIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 21 February 1925
A DENIAL. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Having been informed that a "rum- &nbsp; our" had originated in the brain of &nbsp; someone evidently suffering from de- lusions to the effect that my collec- tion of flowers which won the prize at our Golspie Local Show had been sent to me by post, I hereby state pub- licly that such is an absolute false- hood. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Every flower in my collection was grown by me in my own garden. If, as suggested, they had arrived in our private mail bag, there was no later &nbsp; delivery here than the Thursday pre- &nbsp; vious to the show, as all flowers had to be at the hall before the arrival of Saturday's mail. Flowers picked and posted on Wed- nesday to arrive on Thursday, and be kept until Saturday could hardly have been "rung in" as fresh even in an amateur show. It is too ridiculous to be taken seriously, ...

IF. If we look for the best in ourselves we And it. . If we care to look for the best In others, we generally find it. If we attempt to live in the rule tlmt "It can't be done," we don't live; If we think our citizenship duty ends when we have torn all politic ians. up or dumped them into the w.p.b., we deserve, all we get, and then some! If we are always suspicious of the other fellow, there is something rad ically wrong with us. If we growl for three years, and then fail' to go to the poll, we begin and end with wind. If we cannot do our part in govern ing the country from which we gain benefits, we have a girht to become deaf and dumb because we hold no jurisdiction to complain. If, as country people, we allow.our selves to be "gulled" any longer by city politicians who shed tears of pity for the country on the eve of elections, It is about time we visited a city phrenologist and had our heads read. —Cootamundra "Herald."

AKCHBISHOP KELLY. ADVICE TO INDUSTRIALISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 February 1925
AKCHBISHOP KELLY. ADVICE^TO INDUSTRIALISTS. Speaking at Lithgow on Sunday last the Roman Catholic Archbishop of,. Sydney, said Australia was essentially an agricultural and industrial coun try. This meant that energy must he expended if development was to oc cur. Those who .merely looked for gold would not do much good for their country. Lithgow was distiuct yl an industrial centre, for God had given the district a wealth of miner als, which Australia needed. But Lithgow's industries would not nour ish as they should, and the amount of money that would circulate in wages and thu8 give employment to others would not be as great, unless everyone In industry was prepered to make it a success. Every working man and woman should be a capital ist; should save some of their wages and employ those savings in produc ing. ' , There were registered In this State last year 62,471 cars, 11,970 motor lorrleB, and 18,112 motor cycles. The figures show an Increase of 25,000 motor vehicles over the ...
St. Luke's Church of England. ANNUAL FETE AND SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 February 1925
^^St. Luke's Church of England. ANNUAL FETE AND 8P0RT8. Despite the inclemency of the wea - tier on Saturday afternoon last the annual fete and church sports held in the park in connection with St. Luke's ' Church of England, were very sac : ~ cessfal, particularly from a financial point of view. The attendance num bered about 300 and would have prob ably been larger but for the swimming carnival held at Crookwell, which at tracted a good many swimming en thusia8ts. The cold westerly wind perhaps also deterred a few from at tending. Notwithstanding theBe drow backs the result was most satisfactory to all concerned.. Nett proceeds will amount to about £66. The committee, which included a number of ladies and gentlemen, 01 • which Mr. Theodore' Corby was most prominent, are deserving of congratu lations. The public also responded splendidly and indeed there were frequent and many demands made on their pockets. Luncheon and afternoon tea was ' provided. This stall was in charge of a co...

The Curse of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 February 1925
The Curse of Australia. (By C.R.) The winter was nearly, over and the cheque was just about cut out, so it meant that I had to look for a job. I had been living • a gentleman's life for three months, boarding in Sussex-street and having a rare old time, but now it had to end, so I got to work and rolled the old- swag up and got the tin dishes together. Everything's in order now, but still I think there's something I've got to do. Oh I know. I've got to go and say good-bye to old' Bob Matthews and little Harry Falkiner. We'd had some great old times together. I wonder where I'll find them. The clock is striking twelve. They'll just be stopping for lunch, so I'll saunter along to the Wynyard Square pub. They told me, they always go there for a mug of beer and a counter lunch, so I'll go and join them with one. I picked up the old swag and walk ed slowly down the stairs wondering where I'd camp that night. When I got out in the street I looked back once or twice to see if the landlady ...
