ELECTRIC LIGHT. WORST PART OF TRANSMISSION LINE FINISHED. At Moss Vale Council meeting, the fiiayor said that the engineer and himself had made a visit of inspec tion to Avon Dam- in connection with the Port Kembla lighting scheme.

The most dfiiicult country had been cov ered, and the main road was now being cleared. A good supply of poles was on hand ready for erec tion, and it appeared likely at the present rate of going the light would be in Moss Vale in May. Aid. Hayes said he did not expect the current in Moss Vale till next spring. He had also been at the scene of operations on Sunday, but had not come in contact with the mayor and engineer.

GOLDEN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 April 1924

GOLDEN WEDDING. It is given to few people to cele brate the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding day; hence so notable an event always excites our interest. But when, as is the case with Mr. and Mrs. Southey, of Bowral, the for tunate couple have spent the greater nart of their lives in the same dis trict, the event becomes of personal interest to a very wide circle. Mr. and Mrs. Southey were married at Goulburn, with great ceremony, fifty years ago. Of the three distinguish ed clergymen (Archdeacon Puddi combe. Dean Sowerby and Canon Kemmis) who participated in the ceremony, none now remain with us, but it is interesting to note that amongst the guests on Wednesday was Mrs. Cyril White, a daughter of the late Canon KemmiB. There were ten bridesmaids, and Mrs. Southey was delighted to re ceive from one of them (Mrs. Addi son, of Hunter's Hill) a congratu latory message. Amongst the many telegrams, let ters and cables received on Wednes day was one from two sons in Fiji. Two -daught...

HER LAST SHOW. DEATH OF MRS. TREVITT. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 April 1924

HER LAST SHOW. DEATH OF MRS. TREVITT. Mrs. Harriett Trevitt, wife of Mr, George Trevitt, sen., of Peel, Bath urst, passed away in her sleep on Sunday night. Mrs. Trevitt had been a familiar figure at the Royal Show for the past quarter of a century. She had quite as much to do with the pre paration and staging of the Western District exhibit at each succeeding show as her husband. For her advanced years, Mrs. Tre vitt was a remarkable worker. Prac tically all the jams, jellies, preserved fruits, pickles and sauces, totalling hundreds of specimens, were pre pared by -herself. In the staging of the present exhibit, which Mr. Tri vett considers the best they have made, she worked with him day and night, with an enthusiasm and de votion that were the wonder and the admiration of all others concerned in the various district exhibits. It was a keen disappointment to both Mr. and Mrs. Trevitt to lose on this occasion by the narrow margin of seven points out of a possible 1000, for Mrs. Tre...

NORTH SEEKS BETTER HERDS. COMMUNITY BULLS [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 April 1924

NORTH SEEKS BETTER HERDS. COMMUNITY BULLSi ... , A better herd campaign^has been started on the Lowf rGlarence, and a subcommittee has been appointed to work out the details of a prac tical scheme. Mr. R. J. McDonald brought the matter up at the quarterly meeting of the Grafton Farmers and Settlers' Association. He said the need for improvement in the dairy herds of the Lower Clarence was apparent to them all, and was brought about by the fact that the herds were small, and the farmers generally were only partly dependent on dairying. They could not afford to buy high-class breeding cattle, but what the small .individual farmers could not do the association might do, bygetting.mem bers to co-operate in the purchase of a( high-class dairy bull, which would .available at a low figure, sufficient to/ pay expenses.' The idea was to 'locate the bull for. short periods at different centres. ' The bull could be purchased by borrowing on 'a bond signed by of ficers of the association, or in...

Whilst this demand certainly fell short of what prevailed in previous years, the indications pointed to a keener inter est being developed in the compara tively near future. It was manifest that breeders realised that there was an insistent demand for the mainten ance of the highest possible stand ard in' the breeding of Shorthorn cattle. During the year tho council, decided to again donate special prizes at -the Sydney Royal Show for fat Short horn steers, suitable for the beef ex port trade; It was also determined that the carcase of the first prize be handed over to the Australian Meat Council, who had offered to have it properly frozen and ship...

STILL GOING STRONG. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 29 April 1924

STILL GOING STRONG. I The Melbourne Herald says it is on the cards that Mr. AuBtin Chap man, Minister for Customs, will crown his career by the realisation of one of his fondest dreams. The proposal to appoint a commission to control the city of Canberra opens up a dazzling viBta of possibilities for such a faithful battler for the capital city as Mr. Chacman has been, and I hear that he is regarded as the I favorite for the chairmanship of the new commission — a position which will carry a salary of £3000 a year. There will certainly be many other candidates for such a plum from in side and outside the service. Some politicians, too, who have tasted the luxuries of Yarralumla are also cast ing their eyes towards Canberra. But 'Chappy,' who haB represented the Yass-Canberra district in the House of Representatives since the initiation of Federation, has a start over all other competitors. He is a member of the Government which has to select the personnel of the commission. Already h...
