COMMENT. DON'T KEEP IT DARK [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 16 March 1951
COMMENT. DONT KEEP IT DARK There are some country towns where, on' publication day, the telephone of the local newspaper office runs hot.becauee of all the call ers who want to give gossip paragraphs for publication. But these towns are not with in a hundred miles of Crook well, Gunning or Boorowa We find — and this is confirmed by our correspondents at various centres — that our readers hang to their, tit -bits of news like a miser hangs to his shekels. Maybe they like to be able to look through the newspaper on Friday afternoon and say with satisfaction: 'Well, they missed that one, anyway.' Perhaps we are doing people an injustice when we attribute such a dog in the manger atti tude to them; perhaps it is just that they can't be bothered. But we do say this in all seriousness — a country newspaper is, in a sense, a communal effort. It looks to its readers to help the editor in filling the pages with interesting local news. if you can't, or won't help, then you are surely not enti...

NATURAL INTERESTS BEFORE RURAL INTERESTS Col, Anderson Speaks On Wool Deduction Bill A very interesting explan ation on the Government's Wool Deduction Bill was given by the member for Hume, Col. Charles Ander son, to last week's meeting of the Gundagai Country Party branch. The member said that the Government had put national' interests before rural interests in framing the legislation. 'The high export incomes, plus war production, are forcing prices rapidly upward,' said Colonel Anderson. 'Australia lives on woo]; we are getting ten times as much for it now as we used to, and that, plus under production increases inflation. 'Sometning must be done about it. If there was any way of getting out of it less harmful to the woolgrower than the tax deduction plan, we would have taken it. As it is, the woolgrow er does not lose a cent. .DEPRECIATION ALTERNA TIVE.

Moving Story Of Tiragic Death Of Murringo Child Told At Inquest [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 16 March 1951
Moving Story Of Tragic Death Of Murringo Child Told At Inquest THE PATHETIC CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THE DEATH OF A MURRINGO CHILD WERE DESCRIB- ED AT THE YOUNG COURT HOUSE LAST SATURDAY WEEK, WHEN THE DISTRICT CORONER (MR. C. M. WESTERN) CONDUCTED AN INQUEST ON THE DEATH OF EILEEN ELIZABETH KEIR. It was apparent from the evidence that the tragic train of events begun when rats knocked from a high rafter in a shed a bottle containing attractively coloured strychnine, and a little girl, playing in the shed, had eaten at least four-fifths of a grain of the spilt powder—about 15 times as much as would have been required to kill her. To assist the Coroner, Det. Const. C. V. Shenele was pres- ent at the inquest. A slim, slightly-built, dark young woman, Janet Mytle Keir (mother of the deceased) said she resided with her hus- band at 'Willawong' Station, Murringo. The deceased had been born on January 27, 1948, at the Crown Street (Sydney) Women's Hospital. 'FOUND SOME PRETTY PINK STUFF'...
