Topics of the Times NEW SELLING METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926
Topics of the Times NEW SELLING METHODS. We learn as we go to press, that the subdivision of home garden sites at North Ainslie has been withdrawn temporarily from sale. The subdivision is one which was deserving of being offered to the public in better style than the hole and corner manner adopted. It is difficult to see how the most advantageous offers could &nbsp; be received for the sites under the conditions of its submission to the pub- lic. For a satisfactory sale from the point of view of the public interest in the matter, it is essential that every prospective applicant may have time to consider his intentions on the one hand and that the Federal Capital Commis- sion may have the opportunity of es- tablishing a fair criterion of values on the other. As the sites were being handled, a proper choice by the public was impossible, for neither time nor &nbsp; adequate facilities were provided. The manner in which the sites are sought to be disposed of, too, leave...

MRS. E. G. CRACE [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926
MRS. E. G. CRACE By the sudden death of Mrs. E. G. Crace at "Gungahleen" Gininderra on Monday, at the age of 48 years, another link is broken in the past history of this district. The deceased was well- known and beloved throughout, the Southern portion of New South Wales. Of an active and benevolent nature, she was foremost in all movements for the advancement of the district, and her loss will be felt by every section of the community. Of her it may truly be said "She did good by stealth," for many of her charitable acts were unknown to her friends. The funeral, on Wednesday after- noon, at the Church of Saint John the Baptist (Canberra) was largely attended by people from all parts of the district. The mourners included Mr. E. Crace (widower) Mr. Richard Crace (son) and Miss Crace (sister-in-law) Master John Crace (son) and Miss Hazel Crace (daughter). Two daughters of the de- ceased, Miss Helen and Miss Freda Crace are now in England. The officiating ministers were tlie Reverend...

MONTH OF PROGRESS The Building Of Canberra MANY BUILDINGS COMPLETED Evidence abounds in every direction in Canberra of increased activities. The great task of the Federal Capital Commission is being attacked more strenuously each week, and private enterprise, engaged either in the assistance of the com- missions' programme or on its own account, is operating more extensively. The aspect of Canberra as a garden city, and its possibilities as an attract- ive tourist resort, are being emphasised by its appearance under the prevailing superb weather conditions. A mild winter has been followed by a spring time showing at their best the series of extensive plantations where the wat- tle has been In full blossom, and the garden plots and reserves surrounding the settlements, whose mass of pink and white flowering peach and plum trees is rendered more effective by con- trast with the dark hedges and gar- dens of the neighbouring unoccupied areas. To add to the garden city effect, avenues of...

PESTS AND DISEASES COST TO INDUSTRY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926
PESTS AND DISEASES COST TO INDUSTRY Senator Pearce stated to-day that | one of the matters on which the council for Scientific and Industrial Re- search had decided to concentrate its efforts is the investigation of animal pests and deseases. &nbsp; The council had not been able to obtain any comprehensive figures to show the total annual loss entailed, through various pests and diseases, but there was no doubt it ran into some millions sterling.
