NEW BANK NOTES. – New Commonwealth Bank notes, of an altered design will make their appearance within the next six weeks. The color scheme is being altered and the King’s head will appear on the notes, which will be uniform in size and be a little longer and narrower than now.

ANNUAL SHOW. – Jupiter Pluvius wept copiously on the opening day of the 47th Annual Show of the Moruya A. and P. Society … which no doubt, was the cause of so few people attending. However, perfect weather conditions prevailed on the second day, in consequence of which the number attending was trebled. On the first day the gate takings amounted to £11 15s and on the second over £35. … The terrific hailstorm a few weeks ago which effected such havoc in the farms, gardens and orchards accounted for the small display of farm produce, vegetables and fruit. The ring events were fairly well contested, the hunting and flag races attracting the largest number.  

The following are the names of the prizetakers:-
