OBITUARY. MR. P. N. MOYLE. ROCKHAMPTON, January 11. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
OBITUARY. MR. P. N. MOYLE ROCKHAMPTON, January 11. The city was profoundly shocked yes- terday morning when it became known that Mr. P. N. Moyle had passed away in the Mater Hospital at an early hour that morning. The late Mr. Moyle had been ill only a short time, and although in the last few days his condition had &nbsp; taken a serious turn, it was not expect- &nbsp; ed that the end was so near. Mr. Moyle was taken ill at Emu Park dur- ing the holidays, and it is considered he was affected by the hot weather which prevailed at the time. The late Mr. Moyle, who was a son of Mr. E. B. Moyle, a very old and faithful servant of the City Council, who was for many years secretary of the Rockhampton District of the Man- chester Unity, and who predeceased his son some years ago, was a native of Rockhampton. He was a shining ex- ample of the reward attached to close attention to duty and ambition, as he had carried out the duties of superintendent of the Rockhampton branch ...

Morgan correspondent tele- phoned last night: After spending a very happy day at the seaside yester- day, Mrs. Maria Mary Lyon, wife of Martin Lyon, a Mt. Morgan railway guard, took seriously ill on the home- ward journey. When she was admitted to hospital she was found to be dead. Mr. Lyon worked the train down to the seaside and when the train reached Port Curtis Junction on the return journey his wife came to the van and informed him that she was ill. For- tunately Guard O'Neil was aboard the train and he took charge for Mr. Lyon, who, when his wife had explained her condition, attended to her by applying cold packs. On arrival at Mt. Mor- gan Mrs. Lyon was rushed to hospital by the ambulance. She was immedi- ately examined by Dr. Skinner, who &nbsp; pronounced life extinct. At present the cause of death is unknown. Some time ago Mrs. Lyon was very ill as a result of kidney trouble, but she had not complained recently...

SERIOUS CHANCES ARE TAKEN IN NEGLECTING A SIMPLE CASE OF PILES. Any person takes serious chances in neglecting an attack of Piles. This ail- ment has a tendency to become chronic, and there is also danger of ulceration, and forming of fistula, both very diffi- cult to cure. The safest remedy for any form of piles, whether itching or protruding, is Doan's Ointment. In using it there is no detention from daily occupation, and the many cures made by it have made it famous in every corner of the world. It enjoys a greater de- mand and more enthusiastic popularity than any other pile remedy ever placed on the market. Here is a case :— Mrs. T. Smith, Park Avenue, North Rockhampton, says : '' It gives me great pleasure to say a few words in praise of Doan's Ointment, a remedy that I &nbsp; consider should be in every home. I have used it for cuts and sores and al- ways found it very effective. My hus- &nbsp; band also is a great believer in Doan's Ointment, having proved it...

COTTON MARKET. BOMBAY REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
COTTON MARKET. BOMBAY REPORT. The Patel Cotton Co., Ltd., Bombay, reported on December 13th: — This has been another dull and fea- tureless week with minor price fluc- tuations. By the decline of about two cents since the beginning of October, the effect of the Stock Exchange collapse in the United States of America has been apparently discounted and the market is now showing a fair resistance to fur- ther decline. On the 9th instant the Government issued a report on the pre- liminary estimate of production, putting the figure at 14,919,000 bales and gin- nings to November 30th at 12,858,000 &nbsp; bales. This report was practically with- out effect. The textile situation in America is discouraging. The Textile Merchants' report for November was bearish and led to some long liquida- tion. These offerings, however, were absorbed by short covering and Ameri- can buying, chiefly induced by an un- confirmed report that the Farm Board will raise the basis of loans gradually to 20...

Plays Football at 60 '' You may be interested to know that for the last two years I have made use of Kruschen Salts for my boys (all small boys under 14) every morning at breakfast. I do not mean that every boy has it, but I have it by my side and the boys have been taught to ask for Kruschen when they require it. '' Since I have used Kruschen I find that the general health of the boys has improved greatly, and I practically never have any boys out of school from headaches, bilious attacks, and other minor ailments which used to be so com[m]on, and the more I can persuade the boys to co-operate with me in the use of Kruschen Salts when necessary, the more their general health and fitness improve. I use Kruschen Salts regularly myself, and now, at the age of 60, can still play regularly at Football with the boys, and I am as active as I was at 40.'' 14th November, 1928. &nbsp; Original letter on file for inspection. Kruschen Salts At all Chemists and Stores, 2/9 per bottle. K...

THE STOCK POT. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
THE STOCK POT. So much has been heard of the founts of wit which bubble at unsus- pected times and places, that a stock pot has been instituted to deal with it. All jokes must be original, and when possible, based upon current events on recent news items. Brevity will be the order of the day, as a long-winded joke will get the short-handled axe. Any- one getting past with a chestnut or something from any other paper will be similarly rewarded. The best joke of the week will draw a prize of 5s., and the second one of 2s. 6d. Senders of the two worst should be fined in &nbsp; like amount, but no one seems anxious to undertake the job of collecting fines from the two worst to make prizes for the two best, so that bright idea lapsed. So get to it and be humorous. There'll be two ladles of soup each week for winners, as well as a liberal sprinkling of molten lead for others. The bearers have been appointed patron saints of the Stock Pot. This one collects the 5s. this week with: ...
VARIOUS OBSERVATIONS [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" VARIOUS OBSERVATIONS (By The Man On The Corner.) Apparently bitten badly by the pri- vate enterprise bug, the Livingstone &nbsp; Shire Council has decided to hand an important public utility— the electrifica- tion of Yeppoon — over to a private com- pany. It is to the credit of four of the Councillors that they put up a hard fight against the proposition, but they were outvoted and the Council sacri- ficed its Order-in-Council. The principal fly in the ointment ap- pears to be that there was an objec- tion to borrowing £13,500 necessary for a self-contained electricity plant at Yeppoon on the eve of an election. The inference being, of course, that some of the Councillors placed their desire for re-election ahead of their duty— to protect the people's utilities. &nbsp; If it is not that, then it means that the Livingstone Shire Council numbers among its members some of the archaic typ...

Maxwell, who is in command of the Salvation Army in Eastern Australian territory, ar- rived in Rockhampton yesterday afternoon, and was accorded a civic reception soon after his arrival.

This afternoon he will con- duct an officers' meeting, and at night a meeting for Salvationists. He will leave for Bundaberg tomor- row. &nbsp; The loyal toast having been honoured, The Mayor (Ald. R. Cousins), in pro- posing the toast of Commissioner Max- well, stated that their guest had tra- velled in various parts of the world. The speaker stated that there was no ...
RECEPTION AT CITADEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
RECEPTION AT CITADEL. Last night, at the Citadel, Alma- &nbsp; street, a very big crowd assembled to welcome Commissioner Maxwell. A number of speakers made eulogistic re- &nbsp; ference to the Commissioner and the speeches were interspersed with hymns and part songs by a choir of little girls. The Mayor (Ald. R. Cousins) again welcomed Commissioner Maxwell and sang '' Hail Caledonia,'' which was ap- plauded vociferously. Rev. C. E. Luton extended the greet- ings of the churches of Rockhampton. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The large attendance there that night &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; —the largest he had ever seen in the hall — meant that the people were be- hind Commissioner Maxwell. Commissioner Maxwell, before re- &nbsp; sponding, sang ''Never a Friend Like Jesus '' and led the congregation in sing- ing the chorus. Op...

ENGLAND'S WORST TEMPEST NAVAL TUG ST. GENNY ENGULFED. TWENTY-THREE LIVES LOST LONDON, January 13. &nbsp; The worst tempest in England within living memory, following a succession of severe gales, wrought havoc on sea and land.
