THE Sydney Sun reports . . .
. . . that the city council has placed a bubbling water fountain outside the main entrance to a large local brewery.
Whether this is a hint on the part of the city council for the brewery employees to get on the ‘water- wagon’ is not known, but it is a coincidence that quite a number of the officers of the council are prohibitionists, and that the placing of the fountains is in their hands.
