SPORTING. THE TUMUT TURF CLUB. RAILWAY—HOSPITAL MEETING. A REVIEW OP THE WEIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 29 September 1903
SPOUTING. THE TUMUT TURF CLUB. RAILWAY—HOSPITAL MEETING. : A REVIEW OP THE WEIGHTS. Lb Gband. That the veteran country handicapper, Mr. Jas. Price, enjoys the confidence of the clubs he adjusts the weights for needs no denial, and his work, taken by large, is very creditable indeed ; yet one hears grumbling and discontent from certain of the racing fraternity. But it will ever be so with a class who have an axe to grind or perhaps a bye to run ; and the handioapper who once allowed himself to be hood-winked Jby this undesirable class would simply be aiding a crowd who are quickly and, surely killing the sport of Kings, and are the sole cause of the present strong crusade on the evils of gambling. Taking the weights as a whole, very little fault can be found. There may be one or two apparent mistakes ; but, then, the layman, can always detect these things. Let him take the contract on, and see the job when finished. No doubt, in putting lOst 121b on Cyrus to carry in his maiden effor...
Farm and Station. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 29 September 1903
Farm and Station The sheep sold at the Homebush fat stock markets on Thursday were remarkably for their .prime quality, some consignments being equal to' anything ever seen at the yards. Medium and inferior sorts were conspicuous by their absence; A little over 28,000 head of sheep and lambs were disposed of. Buyers were present in large numbers, and competition for sbeepjwas unusually free and strong, the consequence being i that values .generally showed a further improvement on late extreme rates. The whole of sheep, some .26,000, averaged about a ;pound per head. Crossbred,wet her a made up to 26s 9d each, with one at 40s, and jnerino wethers to 28" 6d with a number of sales, at a guinea and 22s. ; Some t rumours' are in circulation about possible changes in the State Cabinet. It is well known, -.that Mr. Crick is dissatisfiGd'with the work of the Lands department.

GILMOEE. Yesterday week 70 prates containing over. 1600. pairs of 'rabbits /were despatched from the, local freezing works, by rail to Sydney. 0\?ing to an accident to 'the -engine between Killarney and Gundagai the train was delayed in its arrival at the latter station and consequently the. consignment could not'be sent ^ on until the1 next d£j.y. ' The trappers were thrown out of employment on those two days, a3 the carts for picking up the rabbits did not go their rounds to the various camps. In the course of a conversation with Mr. R. Burn, the overseer Of trapping operations and the initiator of the industry in our locality^ I gleaned further information regarding my previous •; correspondence anent the advisability of having two trains per week by which rabbits may be con\x=req-\ veyed'to the metropolis. Th9 storage capacity of the freezing room being limited to 2000 pairs as the maximum, only that number can. be received from the trappers each week, consequently their'trappin...

Masonic Ball The Annual Masonic Ball came off in Mr. O'Brien's Hall on Thursday night. Th8 elements seemed in a way to conspire against success, and in, addition there had been so many similar functions carried out here of late and the proBpect of the Governor's ball, numbers who would; have attended kept away. About 28 couples turned up on the occasion.. Messrs. E. G. Bridle, S. F. Wilkinson, J. Winch, J. Robinson, and W. H.> Hilton prepared the floor, and it was in splendid going order. Homan' and Sons provided (as usual) most excellent music. Mr. W. H. Hilton carried out the duties of M.C. in a worthy and capable manner, and gave general satisfaction.

TUMBARUMBA. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 29 September 1903
TUMBARUMBA. (From our own Correspondent.) Glorious showers of rain have been falling at intervals during the past few days. The fall from 9 o'clock this morning until 6.30 p.m. was about an inch, so an estimate of the benefits we are. receiving can thereby be formed. These warm September rains bid fair to dispel fears of drought during the coming summer. For tenders opened at the Court House on Wednesday, D.Livingstone was lowest for contract 2/'08-'04, Tumbarumba via Tooma to.Tintaldra; and J. Northrop for 4/,08-'04,; road Tumbarumba to Little iBillabong. Tenders for l/'03-'04, and 8/'08-'04, being above the estimates, contracts are re-advertised. The meeting of those interested in the establishing of the local butter factory was, owing to the paucity of attendance, allowed to stand Adjourned. A number of the original movers in the matter seem very anxioas to take decisive steps in the foundation, of such a: public benefit, but it is rather a difficult matter to find small farmers ...

■■in i Lf • rvva^yirite'iT"rr1,Wifa'rri'i'r Farewell to Rev. W- H. On Thursday night last, at, the Presbyterian Church, a farewell was accoraed. the Rev. W. H. Marshall -on the eve of-his departure from Tumut. Mr. A. McDonald, of Gooup, presided on the occasion. There was a fairly representative audience, considering it was an inclement evening. The Chairman called upon Mr. R. Donaldson, M.L.A., to say a few words. Mr. Donaldson said be was pleased to be present, and whilst he, with others around him, felt sorry that a worthy man like the Rev. Mr. Marshall was about to leave, still the pleasing feature of the occasion was that representative people of the town of all classes and creeds had come to say good bye, and this was as it should be. A man's religion, he recognized as but an accident of birth, and the present representative of the Presbyterian Church had made himself so free and representative, showing no party distinction, that he was beloved by people of all denominations. ...
