Taralga A., P. & H. Society GENERAL ANNUAL MEETING AND SMOKE CONCERT. MEMBERS ENTHUSIASTIC The 50th annual meeting in con nection with the Society was held in the Federal Hall, Taralga, on Wednes day evening last. The President (Mr. W. M. F.

Pearce (who had met wi.th an accident), Joseph Alders, C. C. Brad bury, T. W. Burge, W. Miskelly and S. W. Craig. . A good deal of enthusiasm marked the proceedings throughout. The key note of the various speakers was to stimulate more interest amongst members and the general public in order that the funds of the Society and the exhibits generally may be in fcreased. There seems to be little doubt, however, judging from the tone of those present, that there will be a decided increase in the directions mentioned.

LIGHTING OF ORCHARD STREET Citizen writes:— [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 November 1924
LIGHTING OF ORCHARD STREET Citizen writes:— Sbme time ago the Goulburn press reported that the Jocal Progress As sociation was negotiating with the Muhvaree Shire Council with refer ence to the lighting of Orchard-street It appeared that it would be only a question of time when the Council would carry out this urgent reform. Evidently this matter has been lost sight of. If so this is rather unfor tunate. The Progress Association is to be commended for its efforts in attempting to safeguard the bodily welfare of the community. . The unlighted centre portion of Orchard-street and the intersection of Orchard and Bannaby-street, and, I might also add. the intersection of McArtliur and Bannaby-road. are pos itively dangerous on a dark night, more particularly when the elements are rough. • Surely the Council, in its wisdom, can make provisions for the instal lation of a cheap and effective light ing scheme that would be the means of minimising the present existing danger.

BANNABY. (From Our Correspondent). . Last Saturday's shooting fixture of the Baunaby Rifle Club had to he postponed until to-day, owing to the heavy'rain. Keeu interest is being manifested in the club's doings. Members are particularly keen and practise assid uously. Many-of these w.ill develop into first-class rifle shots.

The entertainment held in aid of this cttib a few days agt> was a pro nounced success. There is still much, to be done, but there is a live com mittee on the job, every member of which intends doing his best in the club's interest.

FORDSON PLOUGHING COSTS 2/9 PER ACRE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 November 1924
FORDSbN PLOUGHING 2/9 PER ACRE. I wish, to state how pleased I am with my Tractor purchased in 1922. This Tractor has just ploughed over 1300 acres to date, besides go ing over the same ground with har rows and combine, and alo took th# crops off, pulling an 8-feet McKay Header without thq slightest hitch. Five hundred miles have been cov ered over the roughest metal and soft sandy roads, pulling up to four and a half tons; this being tho total cap acity of my waggon. I find the Ford son extra economical on fuel; using a distillate kerosene, ploughing runs into 2/9 per acrc. I have just completely overhauled my, Fordson—more for curiosity than necessity—and felt that I must write and tell you of the fine condition that all the parts are in, and having no mechanical knowledge, whatever be fore owning the Fordson. I have come to the conclusion that this trac tor is almost a super engine, con sidering the work accomplished. You may use this us you think flt. Yours faithfully, H. R. HOD...

A WORD WITH VVOMEN Many a woman endures with noble patience the daily misery of back ache, pains abbut the hips; nervous ness. dizziness and urinary disorders, hopeless of relief because she doesn't know what is the matter. It is not true that every pain in the back or hins is trouble, "peculiar to the sex." Often when the kidneys get congest ed or inflamed such aches and pains follow. You can tell it is kidney trouble if the secretions are dark' coloured, contain sediment, th^ pass ages are too frequent or scanty. Then help the weakened kidneys. Don't ex pect them to get well alone. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills hjiye won the praise of thousands of women. Read this statement: Mrs. J. S\\vee»ey, Goulburn-street, Crookwell.ftsays: "I took a course of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills for a week and they fixed me up complete ly. 1 suffered a lot with backache, and I am sure my kidneys were the cause.

Commercial. WOOL REPORT Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., leport un der date 6th November:— Evidently tlie full parity of values established in Sydney last week has been sustained at the current Bris bane series. The maintenance o£ American demand has been a promin ent feature in Brisbane, and now that Mr. Coolidge has been elected President by an unexpectedly large majority, and in the natural course of events a fairly consistent and de finite policy may be forecasted fey the ensuing three or four years in the tlnited States, there is every probability that American operations will prove to be the dominating fac tor in our market in establishing re cord prices for the finer types of Merino that will be available for off ering from now onwards. Quite frankly we consider it would be in the best ultimate interests of woolgrowers as a body if prices were not to soar beyond the existing ex ceptional ruling for typical Austral ian Merino wool of high grade. We have all along, however, fo...

Correspondence. [It,must be clearly understood that we do not necessarily endorse the views _of correspondents expressed hereunder.—Editor, "Echo." Our Great Wealth.—What Rural Indus tries are Worth.—Sydney Not in the Picture. (BY M. DIXON.) (A Sydney daily, paper, which bat tles hard for Sydney's interests ■ in season and out of season, had a glim mer, of wisdom the other dav—it dis covered that the national wealth of the State was all produced in the country. In a column article in which it declared that Australia's prosperity depended on the three W's—wool, wheat and water—the paper in question did not once men tion Sydney, although no doubt it was constantly in the ' writer's mind. Sydney is always glad to hear that the country is doing well; it-fore tells it liberal soeuriiuc time ahead, and that is practically trie ucginning and end of Sydney's existence.
