T have such a cute little scrap book — If you saw it you'd got one, I'm sme lt's for clippings of all those quaint verses About Woods' Great Peppermint Cure. Gee ! it muel be a popular medicine, Thelma told me 1 here's tons of it sold; And only to-day I heard G-ladys Gasp say, Its the best in, the world for a cold. In a welter race at Wagga last, week Eunomya and Silentress ran a dead heat. The owners ran off, with the result that the hor ses ran another dead heat. _.

CHARGING INTEREST ON ACCOUNTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 16 May 1916

CHARGING INTEREST ON ACCOUNTS. A firm of grocers in Victoria recently sued several debtors to recover amounts due for goods delivered, and judgment was given for the amount claimed. One de fendant, however, disputed the. account rendered on the ground that interest had been included. The Court recalled the orders previously issued, and deducted therefrom the interest, at the same time informing the firm'.? representative that he was Wable to a prosecution for perjury for having1 sworn that the claims were for 'goods sold and deliv ered.' whereas interest had been added. Tlin Court . also pointed out that if an appeal to review 'lie claim had been made the plaintiff firm would have had io pay vho costs of th?, appeal. It is settled law that interest can not \)r- demanded in a claim for the unpaid price of goods sold and delivered, or in a claim for work done, unless the parties have bound each other by ex press agreement, or an agree ment can be implied from trade usage or other circ...

HARRYING THE PUBLICAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 16 May 1916

HARRYING THE PUBLICAN. Mr. Twomey, organiser fof the Liquor Defence Association, is on a visit to Braidwood in connec tion with the forthcoming refer endum. He met the hotelkeepers in conference, with a view to ar ranging plans for the nght. At this meeting the troubles of dis trict publicans were ventilated. It was pointed out that certain work authorised and passed some little time ago had been order ed to be torn up and carried out in conformity with cither new regulations or new inspectorial ideas. One very glaring instance was mentioned. Only quite re cently Mr. Heazlett, the landlord of the hotel at Major's Creek, was ordered to build a new ho tel. Plans were prepared, sub mitted to the licensing inspector and the Bench, and duly, passed. The new building was carried out in accordance with these plans. It has hardly been finish ed before Mr. Heazlett has been ordered to pull down two of the rooms as not being in compliance with the aforesaid regulations. If this is not a rank ...

PRESBYTERIAN BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 16 May 1916

PRESBYTERIAN BAZAAR. The bazaar concluded on Sat urday night after running since the previous Thursday. There was a good attendance on Satur day afternoon and night. The total receipts amounted to £103 7s lid. This is ths record for tnese junctions, at least ror a great many years. And this af ter the many calls that have been made on the public purse during the past 12 months. It shows that . there is still corn left in Israel, and supplies a crushing* answer to those criers of stinking fish who are al ways asserting that the district is retrogressing. If one knew exactly the amount of money that has been contributed to pa triotic and charitable funds alone during the year by residents of this district it would be astonish ing. What is known, however, sufficiently proves that the dis trict is one of the soundest in New South Wales.

HEROISM OF THE FRENCH TROOPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 16 May 1916

HEROISM OF THE FRENCH TROOPS. The horror of the battle of Ver- ' dun, where the snow-covered val leys and rocks have been literal ly dyed in blood, is somewhat redeemed by the heroism with which the French troops have held their own against fearful odds. The military spirit of the nation leaped into name under the German cannons. In the lit tle village of Samogneux, north of Verdun, two companies be longing to an infantry regiment found themselves isolated from their comrades, and it seemed inevitable that they should fall into the hands of the enemy. Their captain, a very young sol dier, who began the war as a sub-lieutenant, resolved to pre vent this at any cost. He in formed the men of what threat ened them, entrenching them strongly in a sheltered position, facing an open space that the Germans must cross to attack them ; then lie waited for the lat ter's advance. It took place at 11 in the morning, but the effi cient firing of the French sol diers arrested the enemy, who retire...

UNJUSTLY BLAMED. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 16 May 1916

UNJUSTLY BLAMED. The Braidwood Refrigerating Co. has besn made the subject of a malicious attack because it had allegedly dumped a lot of machinery on the footpath in front of its premises in Duncan street. The facts are (and these could have been easily ascertain ed on enquiry) that the machinery in Question is still the property of the contractor for its erec tion, who is entirely responsible for the unauthorised occupation of the footpath. As a matter of fact, the manager of the Re frigerating Company remonstrated with the contractor's representa tive for placing the machinery in such a place, and actually com plained to the town clerk about it, with the result that jthis of ficial took action in the matter. It is bad enough to be abused for one's own sins of omission and commission, but to be villi-. fied for other people's is right over the odds.

POST OFFICE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 16 May 1916

POST OFFICE ECONOMY. Quite recently the postal auth orities became very concerned about a possible shortage in the supply of the paper used for postage stamps, and made vari ous suggestions to the public, including one to use stamps of a nigner utJiiummauuii vu.au a penny whenever possible. Since then a notification has been sent to semi-official post offices of a new regulation, which provides that remittances for telephone calls must in future be made by pasting stamps on the back of the dockets. Hitherto this money has been sent by money order or' postal notes, thus sav ing the stamps. ' Surely it is not unreasonable to expect the De partment to practise the economy which it preaches. Another case of the revised brand of economy which has been instituted in post office adminis tration has come under our no tice. Quite recently a few signa tures wiere required on a docu ment' in the neighbourhood of Krawarree, and a few enquiries were necessary, which could very easily have been c...

A Privileged Person. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 16 May 1916

A Privileged Person. As the subject of their week ly essay, the (schoolmaster asked his pupils to say what they would do if they had £1,000,000.
