How to Help the Local Paper [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 February 1898
•How to Help the Local Paper You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local paper your general printingif you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can af ford to give the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business priming to execute. The newspaper man needs it, and it helps to pay the thousand and one free no tices lie gives you and your,town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending .neither time, money, .nor brains in helping you to build up your district. The - time .may. come when a newspaper may live simply upon the revenue derived from : the . subscriptions and advertisements, but: no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary; town can exist without auxiliary, support derived from general printing.-Therefore ,if you want a good newspaper—one that will still help your town—give it all your printing.

Onk cold gloomy afternoon in the month of February, 1835, a barefooted, gawky, shambling youth, slouched up to the quarter guard at .Inverness bar racks, where the 93rd Highlanders were then lying, and asked to see the colonel. The sergeant in charge laughed loudly 'out not ill-naturedly, and en quired of the lad what his business might be. " I want to enlist," was the prompt reply ; whereupon another guffaw went up from the little group of soldiers, who, prompted by a not unnatural curiosity, had gathered round the new. arrival. But the sergeant silenced them with a look. His accustomed eye had taken in at a glance the whole unique personalty of the would-be recruit. His deep chest, powerful Hnibs, ar.d hard, lesolute face \yere in his favour, and, villi a curt "follow me," he led him off to the orderly room. Ten minutes later the strength of the/ regiment was increased by one, and in cidentally, although 110 one knew it, there had...

Another Land Tax Flaw, Decision Given Respecting Exemp tions. IK"the decision given by Judge Murray in regard to exemptions under ihu land - tax is to stand, it means that .the Act imposing that tax' has lor the second lime missed its .mark. The .judgment was given in the case of two mortgagees jointly and severally in possession of taxable land, of which o.ily one exemp tion of ^240 had been allowed. This was appealed against, caclv mortgagee claiming the right to a separate exemp tion, so that [lie amount free from taxation should be raised to ^480.! After hearing argument 011 both sides,' and admitting the cogency of it, iht: judge ruled that, as the moaning of the Act was obscure, it was his duty to give, the taxpayer the benefit of the doubt; wherefore the double exemption was granted.
