With this issue "The Newstead Echo" enters upon its 20th year of publication.

We grieve to learn that the shelter shed at the Newstead Primary School is being used after school hours as a favourite resort for young couples.  The other day a lady's comb was found in the building and has been handed to us.  The owner can have same by calling at "Echo" office.

A nice soaking rain started to fall on Friday evening and continued for the greater part of the night. It will be of great benefit to the crops in this district. Sowing is still in progress and the rain should be the means of the the early germination of the late seed sown.

The prosperity of this town and district depends chiefly upon the support and encouragement that is given by the residents to local enterprise and industry.  Every venture is to a more or less extent speculative, but each, while aiming at the success of the promoter, must offer certain returns to those whose support is necessary to achieve certain advantageous results on both sides, therefore support local industry and local enterprise by subscribing to and advertising in the Newstead "Echo".  The "Echo" should be in every home in the district.
