GERALDTON WEEK TWO SHOP HALF HOLIDAYS. The Geraldton Traders' Asoeiatior. have declared half holidays for Wed nesday, January 30. and Thursday, 31st., for the Geraldton Week celebrations.

The traders have decided to decorate their premises, and it is hoped the work will be put in hand without qj lay, so that an effective and general scheme may be carried out.
