Eloped With Young Girl. MARRIED MAN FROM ARMIDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 2 May 1925
Eloped With Young Girl. MARRIED MAN FROM ARMIDALE. When Mr. Braddon appealed at Armidale Circuit Court for leniency for 6. Jones, charged with the ab duction of Ivy McLeod, aged IS. at Guyra, some remarkable facts were disclosed. Mr. Braddon said that it was clear it was not the usual crime of this type. It seemes to be the result of genuine infatuation. Jones had not simply induced the girl to go away with him, or used force. She had known accused for a long time, and, being neighbours, the frieudship be tween them increased, till both be came completely infatuated with each other. It would have been wiser had the accused packed his "traps" and left with his family. But un fortunately he did not. The prisoner had told him that he was unaware that it constituted an offence in the eyes of tlie law to "elope with this girl." A- report by the sergeant of police at Guyra stated that Jones was a married man with a wife and four children. Ho had been born in Guy ra district, and for 17 ye...

BLOOD CURDLING. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 2 May 1925
BLOOD CURDLING. "Fear really curdles the blood," for excitement and fear both thicken the life-fluid by condensing it. Cold has the same effect, declares an article in the April issue of the "Life Saver," the official magazine of St. Margarets Hospital. "When you go into a warm room, salt and water suddenly pour into your blood-stream from the re- serve in your tissues, so that when you start to perspire the perspiration will not rob the blood-fluid unduly of the necessary constituents." Madeline Annie Maher, 21, single, of Condamine-street, North Manly, was arrested on Saturday on a charge of having murdered an infant on Ap- ril 15th.
THE NEW "TRAID." [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 9 May 1925
THE NEW "TRIAD." "We have received from the publish ers a.copy of the May issue of the "Triad" Magazine. This isvthe first number of a neftv series, and in it are many unusual features that will ap peal to Australians. _ v The stories, realistic in plot anil treatment, are all written by Austral ians. There are up-to-the-minute let ters from London and Paris, and ar ticles that treat. fresh subjects'in a fresh way. The illustrations are ex cellently printed, and are. not of the ordinary magazine kind. Perhaps the most notable feature of a notable publication is the vein of gay humor running through its pages. Even the book-reviews and theatrical critic isms are not done in a conventional manner. In, addition to the reading matter and illustrations,- there is a fine reproduction of an oil painting. For those who want to spend profit able winter evenings, numerous com petitions are included,, for which sub stantial cash prizes are awarded. A wonderful shilling's worth.
PARROT-LIKE CRY. MR. LOUGHLIN AND PROGRESSIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 9 May 1925
PARROT-LIKE CRY. j MR. LO'UGHUN AND PROGRESS : IVES. (By M. DIXON.) LThc matter contained in the follow ing-article is inserted as correspon dence, and does not necessarily indicate the policy of the paper.] Mr. Loughlin, M.L.A., who spoke at ■Yass in the interests of Labor a few weeks ago, repeated the obvious un trutli that the Progressives are a Joint-iri-the-tail of the Nationalists. Mr. Loughlin has made this statement so many times that lie will soon be in danger of believing it, but it is a simple' matter to convince the intelli gent, unbrassed elector that it has no foundation in fact, the position, in a' nutshell, is this: The Progressive Party is in the field for the express purpose of see ing that justice is done to the. coun try, and until such times as it is suf ficiently strong numerically to form its own governraent.it is prepared to support, any party, so situated, which is willing to bring forward the right kind of legislation. To do otherwise would be playing the p...
THE FRUIT CASE. AND ITS SPECIAL RELATION TO THE PACKING OF APPLES. The Secretary, Fruitgrowers' Federation of N.S.W. writes:— [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 9 May 1925
THE FKUIT CASE. I AND ITS SPECIAL RELATION TO THE PACKING OF APPLES. j The Secretary, Fruitgrowers' Fed eration oi N.S.W. writes:— 'Modern fruit packing differs from that of any ordinary commodity. The remarks refer especially to the pack ing of apples, but -are applicable to that of citrus fruits except for minor differences. Bach apple is classed according to quality and size. Different sizes are not packed in one case. Each is wrapped in special paper and each size is packed according to its appro priate pattern. This pattern gives a definite number of fruits to the case. This is the maximum which the case will hold. The case is more than filled, but its elastic nature allows it to be properly closed. Modern fruit packing is an art which has to be carefully taught and in America the Government has for years been run 'lring large schools for this purpose. Only recently have Australian or chardists begun to learn modern packing methods. These cannot be carried out except by the use...
