Other People's View[?] The Editor, The Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 March 1924

Other TTimhY. j ViewwBR! ? ? — The Editor, The Mail. Sir, — In the Mittagong Mail it is stated that Mittagong contributed more than twice as much as Bowral and Moss Vale to the sale of Fire men's Art Union tickets, the pro ceeds of which go to the Berrima District Hospital. I would not have taken notice of this character istic piece of Mittagongese if it were not cnat tne figures were given by Mr. Terry himself. That gentle man knows full well that the bulk of the money he collected came from people outside Mittagong. How many tickets did he sell at Moss Vale Show? How many in Bowral or to Bowral people? Mr. Terry deserves every credit for his good work in selling these tickets to help the District Hospital, but he should not try to boost his own town at the expense of those who were his best customers. Yours, etc., BURRADOO. .

A DOCTOR'S WAY WITH INDIGESTION. The wife of a well known London physician became a sufferer from di gestive disorder, and, naturally enough, she asked her husband for a remedy. The doctor made up some medicine of the kind usually given to mild cases, but it failed, so, without more ado, be prescribed 'Bismag' (Bisurated Magnesia) and the results were astonishing, even to the medical man. From the first dose all trace of discomfort vanished, and the one-time sufferer could eat anything she fancied with relish, and minus any fear of after-effects. More than that her complexion im proved wonderfully, together with her general health, and, as may be surmised, the doctor is now one of the army of enthusiastic medicall men who praise 'Bismag' and re commend it in cases of stomach trouble. This preparation is read ily obtainable at any chemist's, and any reader who is in need of a real remedy for indigestion, dyspepsia, gastritis or other such stomach trou ble, will find instant relief af...

SHIRE ENGINEER'S CAR. WINGECARRIBEE COUNCIL SEEKS CHEAPER SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 28 March 1924

SHIRE ENGINEER'S CAR. WINGECARRIBEE COUNCIL SEEKS CHEAPER SERVICE. At the last meeting of the Winge carribee Shire Council, the President tabled the following minute re the Engineer's car: — 'The Council de cided at its last meeting that it would discontinue the existing arrangement whereby it provides a car and pays all expenses, and that in lieu an ar rangement be entered into with the Engineer whereby that officer would himself provide a car upon terms to be mutually arranged. While such arrangement would no doubt 'have suited both the Engineer and the Council better than the present one, the Council is unfortunately faced with the fact that the Engineers' Conciliation Agreement does not contemplate an agreement exactly as we proposed, and the result would be that the Council would place it self in the same position as an em ployer engaging a contractorwork man ; in other words, if the Engineer would show at the end of any period for which the arrangement had been in force that t...

THE OVERLAND TEST. ALL THE CARS RETURNED WITHOUT MISHAP. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 28 March 1924

T$E OVERLAND TEST. ALL THE CARS RETURNED WITHOUT MISHAP. Mr. Arthur Gregory, district agent for Oyerand cars, informs us that the test mentioned in last issue of The Mail proved most satisfactory. The five cars each completed 1000 miles without mishap. The original idea was to send one Overland car through a non-stop run of 3500 miles, travelling the bulk of the country districts of New South Wales. It was found, however, that such a run would extend over a fairly long period, and it would not be pos sible to cover every country town of importance, consequently the man agement of the company decided to send five cars out on a 1000 miles non-stop run, and each car to cover one particular territory. Thus every town in New South Wales of stand ing would be visited by a non-stop Overland running to a definite time table, arriving at this town at a time previously announced, and over the whole journey demonstrating the Email amount of petrol and oil that is required to run an Overland.
