Tumut And Adelong Times Sold

Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser

1 October 1925

We are now able to announce that the sale of the business of the “Tumut & Adelong Times” and "Adelong Argus" has been effected, Mr. A. Wilkie Watson, proprietor of the Tumut "Advocate" and Adelong "Express" being the purchaser.

The change takes place immediately and to-days' issue is the last that will be published by the existing management, the proprietress, Mrs. E. Groves, having arranged to relinquish her interests as from October 1, inst.

In making this announcement we desire to thank our numerous subscribers and advertisers for the loyal support acorded these pioneer journals in the past, and have also to mention that, incorporated with the “Times” in the future, will be the Tumut "Advocate," whilst our Adelong publication the "Argus" will be merged into the Adelong "Express" published by Mr. Watson.

The two news and advertising services, thus combined, will, therefore, thoroughly serve the requirements of the town and district in a united, instead of, as hitherto, divided form.

As a finalisation of all acounts owing this establishment is now necessary, we desire our patrons to give immediate attention to the statements that will be furnished them in a few days.

This being the end of the quarter those subscribers desiring to forward payments (other than those paid in advance) will note that the quarterly sub. now due is 6/-.

In conclusion we must thank the many honorary contributors who from time to time have furnished valuable news items, the business people of the town and district who have so long and loyally extended their patronage, and others in a public and private way who have on all occasions taken a kindly interest in the business generally.

We believe all will agree that the “Times" and "Argus" have served a very useful purpose during their lengthy career, and we are assured that in their new home and revised form they will continue to keep on doing so.
