Obituary MR. T. L. GOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 18 January 1934

Obituary MR. T, L. GOOD. Huon cricketers will regret to learn of the death of a former well known identity on the playing area of the Huon, Mr Thomas L. Good, of Franklin, died after a brief illness in hospital in Hobart on Tuesday last. About a fortnight ago Mr Good' was splitting wood when a wedge flew out and struck him on the leg, inflicting a painful wound. A few days afterwards he had the mis fortune to repeat the accident strik ing his leg in the same place. ,This induced a sceptic condition and Dr. Lawrence ordered his removal to the hospital. In spite of all that was done for him the trouble could not be checked and he passed away on Tuesday evening. He was 62 years of age. At the war deceased1 had a wonderful reputation as a stretcher bearer. His daring in going 'over the top' to bring in the wounded' was the talk of the 12th Battalion to which he was attached. The funeral will take place tomorrow (Friday) at 2.30 p.m. at the Church of Eng land cemetery, Franklin. We are s...

NEW HUON [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 18 January 1934

NEW HUON In the talkie version of 'Over the Hill' Mae Marsh, in the rope of the mother, makes a' triumphant return to the screen, and steals practically all the primary honors of the pic ture. 'Over the Hill' is really a story of a totally different type from that which one usually witnesses. No doubt it could ' be said to be one which happens very often in the pre sent so-called civilised world, for there are only too many sons ; and daughters who; once married and away from home of their childhood, are content to let the aged mother wend her way 'over the hill to the workhouse.' The story has a good moral in that it gives. . a' lesson to thoughtless youth to be good to their parents in life, ; which is far nobler and better than doing so 'post obitum'— in the shape of costly funerals, tombstones, vales of tears, etc. In the cast are. Sally Eilers, James Dunn and James Kirk wood, and all three carry out their parts well. TJlie film is, to be shown at the New Huon Theatre this Sat u...

Prince of Wales Theatre. Barrymore' in a role said to be even more gripping than his characterisation in 'Grand Hotel,' is seen as the old book keeper vn a great London depart ment store. Kay Francis, the stately Warner Bros, star, appears in 23 gowns of the most advance mode in her' latest picture, 'The Keyhole,' which is the supporting feature. As the beau tiful young wife of a wealthy society man, she appears in v rich drawing rooms of New York, aboard ship, and in the Cuban capital that call for a constant change of dress.

At the Theatres HIS MAJESTY'S. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 18 January 1934

At the Theatres HIS MAJESTY'S. Gracie Fields is without doubt the greatest English entertainer of to day, and when, as in her latest pic ture, 'This Week of Grace,' she ia allowed full rein to her talents and surrounded by a star cost, the re ception by the audience is a fore gone conclusion. 'This Week of Grace' is due for a week's run at His Majesty's Theatre next . Satur day, and should not be missed by anyone on the lookout for ninety minutes of- glorious fun. The ac tual story is of secondary import ance. The point to be remembered is that 'This Week of Grace'- not only provides a great number ???of* laughs, but radiates an atmosphere of good fellowship and infectious gaiety. It has been designed to give the star every opportunity to exploit her talent and her per sonality, and the five songs which Gracie puts over in her inimitable style are skilfully introduced. In spite of the fact that Gracie Fields is a host unto herself, she has the support of - an unusually strong cast. ...

A GRADE. FRANKLIN v. HUONVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 18 January 1934

A GRADE. FRANKLIN v. HUONVILLE. Huonville batted first in the match commenced last Saturday against Franklin, but after a very promising start by the first five batsmen they, collapsed. Runs came very quickly before the tea adjournment, five wickets being down for 172. The next five wickets, however, fell within half an hour for the addition of only 27 runs. Features of the innings were the batting of Keith Jolly, who top-scored with 69 (seven boundaries), the hard hitting of L. Powell, a 6 and four boundaries out of 39, and three 6's and two bound aries by C. Salter. Franklin had an hour and a half to bat, and' put on 144 runs for the loss of two wickets. Ben Watson played an excellent innings for 72 not out (eight boundaries). Seven . bowlers were tried during the inn ings. The match will be resumed next Saturday. Scores: — HUONVILLE. J.

Destructive Fires GREAT DAMAGE AT FITZ GERALD. SEVERAL HOUSES DESTROYED. The most distructive outbreak of bush fires occurred in the Valley of the Derwent on Monday and Tuesday last, resulting in-' the destruction of seven houses' and Risby Bros, saw mill, f together with about three-; quarters of :a million feet of sawn timber. ' Following the severe trials that the residents- along the Derwent Valley have? had for the .previous, fortnight, further outbreaks of fire , occurred' on Monday. In ordinary circumstances the danger would not have been serious at most of the settlements, but an extensive fire in the vicinity of Fitzgerald was fanned by a strong bieeze, and, aided by the dry condition of grass and other vegetation, the flames spread with alarming rapidity towards the town ship. v Risby's sawmill, about four miles from the post office,- was in the greatest danger, and in response to requests for help Trooper, Byers col lected a band- of * fire-fighters, in cluding two office...

Refurnishing Fruit Trees. WATERPROOFING & AFFIXING MATERIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 18 January 1934

Re-furnishing Fruit Trees. WATERPROOFING & AFFIXING* MATERIALS. (By Pi H. THOMAS, Chief- Hor- ticulturist.) Following the experiments con ducted' in re -furnishing fruit trees by the different grafting processes, a series of tests have recently been completed with the principal water proofing and affixing materials. Re furnishing, especially on fully de veloped trees, involves a lair amount of time and labour. Any efficient means by which this may be reduced or facilitated is of different economic importance to the industry, as at present theie are very few growers not converting varieties that have proved unprofitable. The experi ments were confined to the different materials utilised in wateiproofing and affixing the side, plug and tongue grafts when applied' to convert apple trees to other varieties. A brief review of the observations and re sults is detailed. WAXED CLOTH. % This material was found to be quite effective, especially for bind ing tongue (or whip) grafts app...
