"NIGHTS OFF" "THE LIE." THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
' NIGHTS OFF' By LAWRENCE O'BOY. 'THE LIE.' THEATRE ROYAL. EjlELIE 1'OLINI will close her .Syd ney season with 'The Lie,' a so cial drama of emotion, by Henry Arthur Jones. The theme of the play is self sacrifice. Enielie Polini is at lier best in the passionate appeal, and as the young English girl in 'The Lie' she has a splendid opportunity for tlie display of her particular talent as an emotional actress. An impression of a dreary, beery family, red noses and dogs in the sit ting room. Both house and habitants seem the worse for wear. Sir Robert Shale. Bart, of Shale Abbey, seventy live. by turns jovial and irrascible. gen erally autocratic and unreasonable, his ally autocratic and unreasonable, his temper worn thin in spots by frequent bibulation, he admits — Sir Robert: We're all obliged to rough it a little, now we're short of servants. You aren't very comfortable at tlie Abbey, Miss Pinsent? Miss Pinsent: No, I'm not. Sir Robert: You're like the rest of us. We're none of us c...
Women's Country Party COUNTRY SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
Women's Country Party ? * ? COUNTRY SCHOOLS. (By M. Gunn.) In eriving a report a week ago of Mrs. Octoman's address, reference was made to the school at Berri,, S.A., which had been, twice condemned by the sanitary inspector. Victoria is not without reproach; and the Educa tion Department of New Zealand houses some of. its 'schools' in deserted 'whares ' (native houses). Lake Cargellico claims that it is . equally neglected by the Department of N.S.W. The 'Herald,' of 18th inst., reports that at a public meeting there the parents 're-affirmed their intention to keep their children from the local public school until the sanitary condi tions are. remedied and class-rooms re modelled or a new school built. 'This resolution was strongly sup ported by the local doctor.' MODERN METHODS. The last sentence is important, for it is a doctor's business to look after the welfare of a district, to prevent disease as well as to cure 't ; and the medical man may be accepted as the person best qual...

THREE-PARTY SYSTEM Electors' Wider Choice (Reply to Criticism.) [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
THREE-PARTY ' SYSTEM ? * ? Electors' Wider Choice (Reply to Criticism.) Mr. J. J. Price. General Secretary of the Progressive Party of N.S.W.. wrote the following letter to the S.M. Her ald : — The statements in your leader ol' to day's date must not be allowed to pass uncballeniredi In jinsivor »»»*? tation of your suggestion previously made to the effect that 'the thirdi party system disunited those anti-socialistic iii principle,' but, on the contrarv, assert ing that the third party attracted con siderable support from the Labour side, you say. 'Despite what may be said to the contrary the assertion is incapable of proof and must remain a matter oi' opinion.' If necessary, I can produce hun dreds of electors of moderate Labour views who will personally testify that if denied the opportunity of casting their vote for other than the 'selected' Nationalist candidates, they will either retrain aitogetner rrom voting or vote Labour. Does not the much-discussed recent by-election in D...
"SINGAPORE." [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
'SINGAPORE.' Mr. W. MeMurtrie expresses his views of a topical — and tropical sub ject in verse: — So you think there's no necessity to guard Australia's land: You would rather take the. llnssian and the German by the liana. You would trust th-! foreign nations yes, they'll love us evermore. So the base will be abandoned, yes, the base at Singapore. Yet your fathers would not think so not the eld MacDonahl clan; They were ready, ever-ready with the claymore ond the mun; But you now forget Austndia and- Ihc Diggers, brave and true. Those who fought for England's honour — - you forget they fought for you. The time is surely coming, when Aus tralia on her own. Will guard her hills and valleys should she have to fight alone; And you may yet regret it if you hear the cannons roar, And be sorry you abandoned the base at Singapore. _W. MiMUHTRl E.

Have our wharves all been alienated? Cannot sufficient depth; of water be ?found to berth the Hood? What is the reason for this unwarranted insult^ to tho law-abiding inhabitants of New South Wales?

What Readers Think TELLING A HORSE'S AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
Ill Ke&cters Think TELLING A HORSE'S A-GE. Mr. H. F. McHugh writes.— The rhyme published (l/2''24) in the 'Journal' on 'Telling a Horse's Age,' is reliabla as far as it goes. But probab ly there are a great number of stock owners anxious to know of some marks showing the horse's age beyond the eighth year — some more reliable me thod than that of observing the blaelt spots on the teeth of the upper jaw. I give the following brief account of a method widely known and used in America and in older countries: — If you look at the front surface of the horse's teeth in the upper jaw — a horse, say, five years old — you will find brown-coloured grooves extending from the gum to the cutting edge But not on all of the teeth. At that age you will find no grooves on the two outside teeth. At the end of the tenth year, however, you will find the grooves just showing from beneath the gum. The grooves, of course, grow downwards with the teeth, as they grow downwards to meet wear and tear....
THE FAR WEST. LION-HEARTED PIONEERS. WORK OF THE KILLENS. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
THE FAR WEST. LION-H E A H TED PI 0 NEER S. WORK OF THE KILLENS. Mr. W. H. Morrison writes: — I feel sure all the people who read your much-appreciated paper will ap plaud to a man your generous reference to tho valuable services rendered by Mr. W. W. Killen. Many Western men can look back with pleasure to periods of the early eighties, when he and his father spent money, time and energy 011 an effort to put into profitable occupation large areas west off the Paroo. 1 think 1 am right in saying they were suceess ? ful. They made substantial improvements at a time when the best 'fleece was not worth as much as the locks are worth now, and when the whole carcase of tlie sheep was not worth much more in the market than the forequarter is worth in the shop here to-day. And where the valuable lands on which they, with all others, planked down their thousands, were practically only held from week to week, surely, under such condi tions, pastoralists of_ that day must have had hearts as hi...
Singapore Counts in the Scheme of Empire [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
Singapore Counts in the Scheme of Empire WHAT are we to think of Singapore? We have heard the experts and we have read the papers, and, where are we? Perhaps some body knows! Some of the experts tell you one thing and some of the experts tell you another. Some of the papers give you to understand that Australia's whole existence depends upon Singapore, while other papers try to tell you that Singapore doesn't matter a tuppenny dump. We ought to have de finite opinions! It can lie said that the majority of the greatest authorities hold that in the interests of the' Empire. .Singapore should be created a strong naval base. Earl Beatty and Lord Jellicoe both say this, and there are no greater — are there as great? — naval authorities. It was said of Earl Beatty during the War that 'Nelson has come again.' He is probably the world's greatest naval officer to-day. If the 'blast of war' blew in our ears to-morrow, we would all be hanging on the words of Earl Beatty. By natural right he wo...
The Call is to the Younger Men [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
The Call is to the Y ounger Men ONE of the hopes of the New Staters is that if New States are formed the Young Men will be attracted to public life. If the hope be ful filled, it will be good for the country. The New Staters point out that many young men of excellent promise keep out of Parliament now because Parliament is so far away, and they cannot afford the time. Some of them feel, too, that they can do little good for the country in Parliament, as the Parties exist at present Always the hope of the country is in the Younger Men. 'Other things being equal,' a distinguished student of sociology writes, ''society will be conservative or progressive as it puts to the fore old men or young men. ' Young men are looking ahead; often the old men are looking backward. To youth Life is phosphorescent with hope; to age Life is a white capped dream. Probably part of the trouble with our State Nationalist Government to-day is that it is in the hands of the Old Men. They sit back, and are n...
Scottish Farmers TELLING THEM OF AUSTRALIA. MR. MACCORMICK'S MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
Scottish Farmers TELLING THEM OF AUSTRALIA. MR. MACCORMICK'S MISSION. Dr. D. Maccormick, of Macconnick Estates, has left Australia on a visit to Scotland, and while there he hopes to interest Scottish farmers in Aus tralia. Mr. Maccormick, who came from Scotland, has been 24 years in Australia. i^e lias been very suc cessful 111 business here, and he is eager to tell tlie good folks in Scot land how kindly and well Australia has treated him. There are considerable numbers of young Scottish fanners who, Ah. Maccormick believes, will be very in terested to hear what lie has to tell tliein about Australia. He is talk ing Home particulars of several pro perties in Australia, the owners of which are prepared to allot farms, 011 certain conditions, to suitable men from .Scotland. One of tlliese liropei-tiejj is Mar tindale in the Denman district. Mar tindale is one of the most famous pro perties in N.S.W. and there are about forty farms available there. These farms are suited for dairying...
The Value of Meat in the Diet Chairman Sub-Committee on Research Committee on Nutrition, U.S.A. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
The Value of Meat in the Diet ? * ? (By Paul Rudnick.) Chairman Sub-Committee on Research Committee on Nutrition, U.S.A. Meat is without question the most important single article in the diet of tlie human being after it is weaned'. That this is so has been known to the human race from its earliest times. It is only in comparatively recent times, however, that physiological chemistry lias developed the reasons for the Im portant place of meat in the diet. Un til these reasons had begun to develop, the preference of meat was- doubtless based 011 its palatability and 011 the sat isfactory results obtained by its use. Modern chemical research has shown that meat is valuable not only because of its higli percent-age of protein, but also because its protein has a higher biological value than that derived from any other source. MOST NEARLY PERFECT. Proteins are built up of certain or ganic compounds of nitrogen known as auiino-acids. Not all of these are of equal value. Some are indispens...

The Big Dams COMPARED WITH SYDNEY HARBOR. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924
The Big Dams COMPARED WITH SYDNEY HARBOR. Mr. F. A. Chaffey. as chairman of the Water Conservation and Irrigation Commission, states that references are frequently made 111 speaking of large ' dams in this State to their size as compared with Sydney Harbour, and that the Sydjney Harbour Trust esti mates the surface area of Sydney Har bour, including arms and branches, as approximately 14,284 acres. The surface area of Burrinjuck Dam ? is estimated as .12,780 acres, and of the Hume Dam, at the level included in the original design, at 31,000. No informa tion is available as to the capacity in cubic feet of Sydney Harbour, and )io comparison can therefore he made in that particular.
