IN THE COACHING DAYS [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 15 December 1937

IN THE COACHING DAYS ? \j ? Thirty-six miles from Bowen (North Queensland), where the rail line to the mining fields at Collinsville com pletes its climb up the range and com mences to drop down the Pelican Creek watershed to the township 20 miles away, lies the little-known and seldom-noticed grave of Jack Barron, one-time ace coach-driver on the famous nlri Bnwen Dnwns mail ronri One of the first mail services in North and Central Queensland, extending from Bowen on the coast to Bowen Downs station, away towards where Aramac lies to-day, it has long since been superseded, and the old road has practically fallen into disuse. Good horseman and grand driver, a power ful, well-set-up man, as long as a horse could be hitched up in his team Barron would drive it. With reckless ness combined with an understanding of horses, a fiery temper, and his enormous strength, it was seldom he didn't 'get through.' Mail nights at the Bowen River Hotel— sixth change out from Bowen — were something t...

FISH SCALES [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 15 December 1937

FISH SCALES (By 'John Dory'). Mr. Tom Bash a has been catching .sonic very nice bream at the canal of late, and was seen one afternoon i last week with some very heavy bream and flathead, these being caught from the punt. » ? * * Blackfish are still on the bite on the Bolong bank, while some very good sized bream are being landed down that way. It is reported that some of the railway officials from over the nver are showing some oi the Nowra anglers how to catch bream from the condensery wharf with something new in the bait line, garden or earth v/orms being their secret of large catches. * ? * ♦ That keen angler Tom James has been showing Bill and the other Tom how to land the big ones down Green well Point way these last few week ends.

BOMADERRY'S NEW HALL [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 15 December 1937

BOMADERRY'S NEW HALL ? o ? Through the public-spiritedness of several residents, Bomaderry now has a public hall of which any community might well feel proud. For many i years the want of a suitable hall has been felt, and with the growing im portance of the place the need became more and more acute. There were many difficulties in the way, but fin ally these were overcome by Messrs. A. C. Petrie, T. Thurgate, W. Petrie, A. Isaacs, J. Kelly, and A. Davis agree ing to become guarantors for an amount sufficient to finance the con struction of a hall. The new hall, which is now com pleted, is a decided acquisition to Bomaderry. It is of rusticated weatherboard and flbro, lined with 3 ply, and was erected by Mr. Bert Green, to a design prepared by Mr. Pat Thurgate. At the front of the hall is a committee or meeting room, with ladies' and gents' retiring rooms, the former having direct access from the main building. An innovation is a rostrum (for orchestral purposes), also designed by M...

BOMADERRY [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 15 December 1937

BOMADERRY ? O— ? (Prom Our Own Correspondent). I I have been told on good authority that it is quite possible to have the pump for Bomaderry water supply put into action as soon as it is sup plied. This rests with Engineer Gowans, and as most of Bomaderry neonle are without water now. and the Xmas holidays are coming, it would be an act of grace for him to have the pump installed at once. The linking up with the old reticulation will be done at once by Mr. Stocker, who, when he has a job to do, gets at it promptly. * * * * The editors of the 'Shoalhaven News' and the 'Leader', together with Mr. Dave Harrison, publicity offi cer, made an inspection of Bomaderry public hall on Friday, and were favorably impressed. ♦ ? * ♦ The following donations to the hall have been received up to date: Miss Min a Soper, beautiful mirror for ladies' cloak room; Mrs. Schwert, sen., large table for meeting room; Boma derry Social Club, 70 chairs and servery window; Mr. Ron Sutton, free loan of 100 chai...

JERVIS BAY [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 15 December 1937

JERVIS BAT (From Our Own Correspondent). The local lads don't believe in leav ing all the big-game and shark fishing to be dene by visitors, so on Friday last Reg Jarman and S. Parnell de- , cided to take a hand and rid the Bay of a few sharks. Fishing with a heavy line and an oil drum for a float, it didn't take them very long to land three blue pointers—one 5ft., one 8ft., j and one 9ft. A fourth shark, appar ently enraged at the loss of his mates, took a bait, but that one was not landed. It managed to break away, and took most of the lads' 'big game' gear with it. The presence of large schools of salmon is no doubt respon sible for a lot of sharks in the shallow waters at present. « * * * Commander Gettings, of H.M.A.S. , Australia, is at present spending his leave at Jervis Bay as the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Sevan. So it ! seems that not all of the naval per sonnel dislike Jervis Bay. Of course, spending one's leave and being on duty are two different wajfs of visit ing an...

REMINISCENCES ERN EMERY [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 15 December 1937

REMINISCENCES (By 'Old-Timer'). ERN EMERY In last week's 'Thirty Years Ago' we read E. Emery 96 against Nowra. Not so long ago we read that for Cam bewarra E. Emery took the whole ten wickets. Those were the kind of per formances Ern frequently put up He has been aptly described as the WG. of Shoalhaven, or the Grand Old Man. Of course, he wasn't always old. but few, if any man in Shoalhaven re mained amongst the front-rankers as long as Ern Emery. It wasn't only »*».j u.w-i-uj as, a jjia.yci WXttli He Will De remembered by; he was a personality off the field as well as on it. If Ern was a spectator at a match the young bloods invariably tried to get a seat close to him, in the hope that the conversation was cricket — and it mostly was— so that they might hear the opinions of Ern Emery on some point, for what Era Emery said was i right. Probably neither Shoalhaven. I nor any other place ever produced a I keener or more intelligent student of the game. He was also a splendid conversa...

GOLF NOTES [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 15 December 1937

GOLF NOTES (By 'Niblick').

This expert strongly advised the liberal use of a particular kind of lime, and just as strongly condemned the use of sulphate of ammonia. The committee cannot be blamed for acting on the written re commendation of the Department of Agriculture, after the Department had made an analysis of the soil. Further investigations should be made, and experiments carried out over a small area, before any more money is spent on fertiliser of doubtful value. * * * ? With so many summer sports at tracting nlayers, it might be a good thing if the committee would abando...

RIFLE SHOOTING The shoot last Saturday, at 700 yards, marked the close of the year's shooting, and members can now relax . until the new year.
