Think Before You Vote. VITAL ISSUES ARE AT STAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 30 May 1925
Think Before You Vote. VITAL ISSUES ARE AT STAKE. (By M. DIXON.) [The matter contained in the follow ing article is inserted as correspon dence,' and does not necessarily indicate the policy of the paper.] The best possible advice.'that can .be offered country electors who are' ' in doubt sis to how to vote on Way 30th is to do a' littlfe clear thinking before they visit the ballot-box in or der that they may fully grasp the is sues that are at stake. The position in a nutshell is this: Nationalist and Labor Governments have held office alternately for many years, and the result of their legisla tion, so far as the country is con cerned. is reflected in the gradual drift to the city of the young men and women who should andwould, be following in the footsteps of their parents if the prospects looked good enough. Instead , they are congrog in the al ready overcrowded city, following deadend occupations, and often times helping to swell the army of unem ployed. while the country is' c...

France during the World War, as saying that:— "Prohibition lias diverted the ener gies' of the Salvation Army from the (1 run Kurd in the gutter to the boys and girls in their teens. "Prohibition has so materially aff ected society that we have girls in our rescue homes who are 14 and .15' years old while ten years ago the youngest was in the early twenties." Last Christinas Day we left a demi john of beer in the shade of a tree on . the river bank. In the afternoon af ter paying one homage-to the demi john, we indulged in a swim.

WOOL REPORT Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report under date 21st May:— [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 30 May 1925
WOOL REPORT Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report un der date 21st May:— The London sales closed last week with some slight indications of reviv ing confidence, most lines showing an improvement as compared with op ening rates. If the downward trend of values has been definitely arrested, no doubt the advocates of cessation of sales'will contend that curtailment of offerings has been directly respons ible ' for the buyers' change of front, but proof of the soundness of that theory would still be somewhat diffi cult. It is in any case little satisfac tion to find sales more possible in Lon don, whilst Australian growers, who are anxious to realise on tlieir wool, are .prohibited from testing as to whether similar conditions might not prevail here. Necessarily shipping arrangements liave been all upset by the postpone ment of sales, and as shipowners must keep their boats moving, there is quite a possibility even it sales are resumed early in July, the boats may not be then conveni...

Is the Country Getting a Fair Deal? (By "Country Elector.") [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 30 May 1925
Is the Country Getting a Fair (Deal? . (By "Country Elector.") • To-day— Saturday, the 30th instant, —the electors o£ New South Wales will be asked to record their votes. These will be given in accordance with whatever political views the elec tors possess. It is to be hoped that whatever party is returned to power that they will -give serious consideration to the advancement of country interests. Promises in the past and during the present campaign by both Nationalists and Labor candidates on the hustings are to give the man on the land and country interests generally genuine consideration if placed in power. These promises have so often been repeated that the average elector only regards them as purely an election eering stunt broadcasted by opportun ists who wish to get into Parliament and draw the £600 per annum and all privileges attached to the job. There is no getting away from the fact that the average politician is not sufficiently patriotic to his country's progress, more ...
Another Pioneer Passes Away. MR. JOHN MISKELLY. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 30 May 1925
Another Pioneer Passes Away. MR. JOHN MISKELLY. Another Taralga district pioneer &nbsp; &nbsp; has passed away in the person of Mr. John Miskelly, of Myrtleville, who &nbsp; died at his residence on Wednesday night last after a long and painful ill- ness, at the advanced age of 77 years and nine months. The late Mr. Miskelly, who was born in County Antrim, Ireland, came to &nbsp; Australia when he was only 17 years of age and immediately came to the Taralga district, where he has resid- ed ever since. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; He followed farming pursuits active- ly until a few years ago and was, like many other pioneers of his class that settled on the land in the Taralga dis- trict, an industrious and practical farmer. These types of pioneers, if ever a book of "Taralga's History" is written, are worthy of mention in its pages. As a matter of fact it is the type of men such as the late Mr. Mis- kelly that have made Taralga's name ...

THE SURE SIGN. A dull, persistent pain in the back, an ache that spoils sleep an dis worse in the morning, a sharp, cutting pain wlien bending, is a sure sign of kid ney disease. It is not really the back aching, but the kidneys, which •lie just beneath the small of the back. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills quiclcjy relieve the kidneys and help them to drive out of the" body the poisons which cause backache, urin ary disorders, rheumatism, gravel, stone. The case here given proves that cures are thorough: Mrs. E. Mortimer, Cowper-street, Croolnvell, says: "I am pleased to tell you Doan's Backache Kidney Pills - cured me ol' backache and kidney trouble some three years ago and I ' have ben as right as a bank ever since. Previous to my cure my baclc was very painful and it was only with great difficulty that I could get about. My general health was poor and I often used to feel fit for noth ing. Afriend suggested that I should take Doan's Backache Kidney Pilis, and spoke so highly of the...

(Published by Arrangement.) • SEVEN THOUSAND YEARS' GAOL. In a special article in the New York "Times" A. H. Ulm says that "since * the Prohibition Act became effective 203,GOS cases involving its violation have been brought in the Federal. Courts. The total last year was about 45,000. Fines collected via the Fed eral- courts last year totalled 55,026, 000 and jail sentences aggregated 7, 052 years. "It is estimated that the Federal Government is spending on Prohibi tion enforcement around $40,000,000 a year—several times what was spfent during the first year or two of Prohibi tion. "There is no definite information as to what the States as a whole are spending for the same purpose, but the aggregate probably equals if it does not exceed Federal Government expenditures."

RICHLANDS. (From Our Correspondent). WEATHER CONDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 6 June 1925
RICHLANDS. ; (From Our Correspondent). WEATHER CONDITIONS. It is many years since this locality has received so many inches of ram in such a short period of-time. There has been nothing else but rain, rain rain, and the average farmer was be ginning to have his doubts as to when it would cease. The fall has, howev er, made farming and dairying condi tions most favourable for the coming season, and land owners generally are optimistic regarding a successful year. Grass is growing slowly and crops sown early are looking well. Cattle and sheep are in good condition and should get through the winter without much assistance. Providence is the best government that the man on the land can look to for success. "500" TOURNEY. The members of the Richlands team who took part in the match against Taralga recently, although defeated by 2S to 11, are very hopeful of re versing this win the next time the two teams meet. Mr. Theodore Corby the captain, considers that some of the Taralga players pos...

Lucas, teacher of the public school-at Bullio, on his departure from the dis trict. Mr. 13. S.

POULTRY NOTES. IN-BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 6 June 1925
POULTRY NOTES. (By "Orp.") IN-BREEDING. I The majority of poultry breeders , will recollect'that but a few years ago it was of frequent occurrence, to see some breeders advertising as many, as three strains, the object being to con vey the superiority of the triple, al liance. As biological authorities have, through exhaustive experiments, proved the fallacy of this mixing o£ strains, their advice being, when you have a good thing stick to it and make it better if possible. I The continuous breeding of one ' strain only is called. in-breeding, and when done with knowledge and care j the strain can be safely perpetuated without new - blood for many genera ; tious. | Some people imagine that the prog ' eny from a coclc and a number of hens ! would be brothers and sisters, and have some hesitancy in mating them together. , But such is not the fact. They certainly would have the same sire but different mothers, and even these might be very remotely related. From which it will be readily...
