Musical Festival [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 12 February 1925
Musical Festival On Tuesday night next a public meeting will be held, as the result Of a petition sent to the Mayor by a iram uer of musical enthusiasts, headed by \iiss 10. It. Bridle, the instigator of the movement, to consider the advis ability of holding a musical festival ill L'umut. The idea, we believe, is on the lines of an eisteddfod, on a smaller scale, comparatively, so as to be .vithin the means of a . town of Tu i mut's size. The proposal is a good one. Invariably, eisteddfods, which. are now held annually in several towns — the nearest to us being Wagga — are good I ind profitable entertainments, even in .he monetary sense. -As- a stimulant and an encouragement to good music there is nothing better. In Tumut, as n other towns, the higher class of | musie is scarcely appreciated by the | majority of the populace. Take, for instance, such songs as 'Bobbed and Shingled,' 'Cats' Whiskers,' and many others; an audience nowadays ivill applaud these items more vocifer ;iis!y ...

Those Promised Dressing Sheds. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 16 February 1925
Those Promised Dressing Sheds. Another summer season has come and almost gone. It is three sum jmers ago that the Tumut Municipal Council, on a motion put and carried chiefly at the Instigation of Mr. H. Slurpliy, then an alderman, accepted an offer from- the Tumut Turf Club in conncction with the erection of dressing sheds on the bank of Tumut IUver. The Council definitely promis ed to erect sheds at the ? northern end of the town, tho Turf Club to crcet some on the Racecourse. The Turf Club carried out its part of the ar rangement, and the sheds, although not elaborate ones, are now upon tho racecourse for the convenience of the pnt-llc. And they are used fairly ex teiiKtvely, perhaps not so much this yeuiy on . account of the 'cool season. The Council has failed - to honor its promise. .The people at the northern end of. the town have, no dressing 'slvcds,, aid therefore are debarred from enjoying ope of the most refreshing of, summer pastimes.

WHEN HARVESTING PRUNES. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 16 February 1925
WHEN HARVESTING PRUNES. There are three intervals in the ripening of prunes. The first prunes that ripen do not as a rule contain the same amount of sugar, as those that ripen in the second and third stages. As prunes that are deficient in sugar (and this, after all, is the main pre serving factor) are subject to mould una aiso to an incrustation of sugar on the surface, which is sometimes mis taken by consumers for mould to the depreciation of their value, it is recom mended that the prunes that ripen first bo kept separate from the main crop .and disposed of immediately they arc ready for consumption. This first i crop oV ii-si? ripenuig m variably -fails if it is allowed to do so, nnd as a lnat i cv of practice it should be allowed to tali and should never bo picked, A large percentage of the second crop or stage will also full when sufficient ly ripe, but as a rule the third crop or fruit of the third ripening stage will require to be picked, as they seem to adhere very tightly ...
