A BUSINESS RETROSPEOT. AT .thc.commhencenente of another year each one of us may proftably -indulge in a retrosject of our actions during the previous 12 months, and carefully consider; whether there is not-room for improvement during the current year, as, of all things, it is essential that the tools and implements which we. use should be of the best quality obtain able. What- chance of success would our brave soldiers s who are fighting their country's battles in France and Belgium, have if they were. armed with obsolete and inferior weapo6is ? It is certainly, just as impontant to the husbandman who desires to receive the full profits of his labours, that all his tools and-implements sbould be of the best and most reliable obtainable.

Ford Cars. BIG REDUCTION IN PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 2 March 1915
Ford Cars. BIG REDUCTION IN PRICES. FROM to-day Ford Cars, which have given so much satisfaction, and indeed which have gained fame as the univer- sal car, are to be sold at a big reduc- tion. We read some time back where the Ford people distributed something like two million pounds amongst their 20,000 employees. Now they have decided to give to every purchaser of a Ford Car also a bonus in the way of a handsome reduction in the price of their car, which means that you save £15 on the touring car, and £10 on the run- about. The Ford Motor Co. of Canada will manufacture 40,000 Ford Cars in the largest motor factory in the British Empire. One thousand Ford Cars were sold in New South Wales last &nbsp; &nbsp; year, and over sixty Ford Cars have been sold each month this year. The reasons are obvious. The car itself, the low purchase price, and last, but not least, the small upkeep expense. The Ford Car has proved itself time and again- proved that it is the most suitab...

I1 The de niand of the working man was acceded to, a body was created which was to have full power to control the course of trade, and the bugbear. of high pt ices was to be effectually laid. Need less to say nothing of the kind has happened, prices of neces saries continue to rise; the "" working man ' is more sus picious and discontented than. ever he was; and Ministers are badgered, not merely because of the alleged extortions of traders, but because of the (also alleged) inefficiency of the COnm mission which was appointed in deference to popular clamor. All these factors were brought into strong relief by the depu tation from the Sydney Labour Council whi...
