Hortin, a cyclist from Tasmania, ended his ride in the first heat of the Druids' Wheel Race at the -Druids' Gala at the Exhibition Building on Monday aiternoon in a sensational man ner. The bell had rung for the final lap, and the field was coming into the straight in front of the grand stand at a great pace, when Hortin was worked- out towards the fence.

COMMONWEALTH TIMBER TRADE, [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 2 April 1910

COMMONWEALTH TIMBER TRADE, Despite the fact that the Common wealth possesses almost inexhaustible stocks/ of timber of every variety, the trade in imported woods is one of surprising magnitude.

The chief item in the timber list, however, is undressed timber, of which there was £731,592 worth imported in 1903, and £1,388,224, worth in 1908. The export trade has developed somewhat in six years, the value of this trade being £768,307 in 1903, and £1,039,114 in 1908..
