MISSING WILL. IN TESTATOR'S COFFIN. SEARCH ENDS AT GRAVESIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 6 June 1925
MISSING WILL. IN TESTATOR'S COFFIN. SEARCH E^IDS AT GRAVESIDE. An extraordinary story comes from Enfield of a missing will that was found buried with the body of the man who made it. Arthur William Apsey died sudden ly at Enfield last week. Ho had made a will, involving a large sura, but, although the context was known to his relatives and his solicitor, the ac tual document could -not be l'ound. Apsey had been known to do pecu liar .things, and after a thorough search had failed to reveal any trace of the missing will, the relatives ap plied for permission to open the grave at Rookwood. This was done in the presence of a party of grave-diggers, a representa tive of the solicitor, and members of the Lidcombe police. When the coffin was unscrewed the missing will, along with several pound notes and a pair of spectacles, was found in the pocket of the dead man's pyjamas. The will was damp, but on being dried, was quite legible. The solicitor took charge of it. This incident is stated ...

HER NEW TASK. WOMAN MEMBER'S HOPE. THREE REFORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 6 June 1925
HER NEW TASK. • WOMAN MEMBER'S HOPE. THREE REFORMS. "The very first thing I intend to do when 1 reach the Legislative Assem bly," said Miss l'reston Stanley the other night, "is to move for the appoint nient of a commission to inquire into the appalling loss of mothers in our community. "The second commission 1 want is one to inquire into the causes of the needless waste of child life. "And the third is to press on and secure an Act for the segregation of feeble-minded persons. "I consider that if a woman achiev ed these three things in the life of one Parliament she would be doing more than had been done in a genera tion of Parliaments." Miss Stanley, however, does not want to be known to the people of New South Wales as a legislator with a few views, even if good'views, on a few subjects. She has very strong views on all current politics of the day. "Although T believe," she said, "that women inherit a body of inter ests that men only partially share, and while I am convinced thes...
THE HUMAN FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 6 June 1925
THE HUMAN FISH. An Englishman, meeting an Amer , lean, remarked: "Why is it that you Americans pride yourselves on being such fine story-tellers? I will bet you a soverign I can beat any story you can produce." The American replied: "I am not very much on stories, but 1 have a friend at the Hotel Metropole who is. If he will join me 1 will take the bet." They went to the hotel, found the friend, and made the bet "Go ahead; tell your story," said the American. The Englishman said: "I waB one time a passenger on a Cuna"rd ship en route from Liverpool to New York. When about half-way .over the look-out one morning spied a black object on the starboard bow. They soon made it out to be a man, swimming. The ship was stopped, a boat lowered, and, reaching the man, an attempt was made to take him in to the boat. But the man declined With thanks, saying, 'Oh, no, I am swimming on a wager from New York to Liverpool; give me a drink of whisky, and expect to see me when you arrive.'" The Americ...

COMMERCIAL. WOOL. Pitt, Son and Badgery, Ltd., report under date 29th May:— [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 6 June 1925
COMMERCIAL. WOOL. Pitt, Son d,nd Badgery, Ltd., report under date 29th May:— From reports received ■ from oversea it is obvious that mqjiufacturers are working on their accumulated stocks, which are of varying extent and so 011 the- average there are not heavy sup plies await ing consumption it cannot be long before further large quantities will be needed to keep the wheels turning. Evidences are not wanting that were sales in progress at the moment for execution at prices which would show a distinct improvement on the levels which were current here at the last auction held, and it is to be hoped the position will gain strength during the remainder of the recess. We think there is justification for a hopeful view to be taken of the fut ure. Not that any boom'in prices will take effect, but a stabilisation at a level that will provide remunerative returns for growers. With the pros pect of another Targe clip shortly to be shorn and a considerable carry over of last season's wool, the...
STATE ELECTIONS. PROBABLY LABOR GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 6 June 1925
STATE ELECTIONS. PROBABLY LABOR GOVERNMENT. Reviewing the results so far to liand of Saturday's polling it would appear that the Labour Party has secured a decisive .victory. Of course many thousands of absent and postal vates have yet to be counted, in addition to the distribu tion of preferences. Should the final figures give to! Mr. Lang the Treasury benches he will be called upon to find a speaker. He may follow the precedent of entic- i ing one of the Opposition to fill this position, otherwise he will be forced to nominate one from his own side which, of course, will weaken his al ready narrow majority further. However, should Mr. Lang form a Government he may rely on the fact that the Opposition will assist him to carry on provided sane legislation is advanced. Amongst the casualties are men who .cau ill be spared from the Legislat ure. Men of ripe experience and sound balance, of whom may be men tioned Messrs. M. F. Morton (Wollon dilly), Perdriau, Levy (late Speaker), and D...

IS DANCING AN ART? [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 6 June 1925
IS DANCING AN ART? Yes! Dancing is an art. And since dancing is an art, to be popular it must have a rliytlim and motion which will express the feeling o£ real danc ing. Dancing is built of rhythm, and mo: tion, a rhythmic rising and falling like the smooth undulations of a quiet sea, and the steps in dancing occupy an equivalent position as do notes 111 music. But, since a series of notes does not necessarily mean music, ,sp a series of steps will not make a dance unless they are clearly com bined and gracefully executed. Also, unless they have rhythm and motion the dance will be void and- meaning less. In other words, it will lack "life." Once a beginner has acquired a certain facility he should realise that steps are only a means to an end, and to get' real satisfaction he must think —just as a skater does—of the curves which express what the "true" dan cer feels,- and the steps should be used to display a curve rather than a-ser ies of leg movements. The sweeps and curves of mod...
THE STATE'S REVENUE. BIG FIGURES. SURPLUS WILL BE CONSIDERABLE MR. LANG'S NEST-EGG? [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 6 June 1925
THE STATE'S REVENUE. BIG FIGURES. SURPLUS WILL BE CONSIDERABLE MR. LANG'S NEST-EGG? With the expiry of 11 months of the current l'maneial year, the State Gov ernment accounts exhibit a healthy condition. The principal feature is the big in crease in revenue, which, at £34,420, 071, shows an increase' of £3,511,877 over that for the similar period of 1923-24. Expenditure also has in creased, but only to the small extent of £224,393 in a total of £34,640,995. The excess of expenditure over rev enue to May 31 is £220,324, or £3, 2S7.4S4 less than the excess shown at even date last year. With further collections of income tax to be placed to the credit side of the account be fore June 30, the year is likely to close with a considerable surplus. WHAT WILL SURPLUS BE? Receipts from income tax during May amounted to £943,164, bringing the total of collections for the 11 months to £3,251,320. The official es timate of income tjix revenue for the whole year was set down at £4,500, 000. If th...

TERRIFIC SMASH. ' I ON jSOULBURN ROAD. CAR AND DRAY COLLIDE. A terrific collision between a horse-drawn dray loaded with wood and a motor car occurred ■on the Goulburn Road, just near ' near Warne-street, Crookwell, on / Wednesday night last about 6.45. Fortunately no one was injur- • ed. That such is the case, how ever, is a miracle. Mr. L. W. Laverty received a call that a car had run out of petrol along the Goulburn Road, and, accompanied by Mr. Garnet Webster, he set out in a new .Buick—which had only arrived that afternoon—with a tin of petrol aboard to replenish the empty tank of the stranded car. When just past Warne-street the car crashed into the rear of a horse drawn dray loaded with firewood. It is said that the dray was not vis ible until it was too late either to ■ pull up the car or avert a collision. It is also stated that the dray was without a light. Mr. V. Whitehorn was the driver. He is U wood carter and has a depot at Bast Crookwell, and was making for same when ...
