PUN ALL ROUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 26 October 1898

FUN ALL ROUND. Two mischievous students were in a St. Kilda tram last 'week. .Whep they ' reached the Junction two pretty girla came aboard, and sat opposite. They were both. pretty and lively, and one of the 3tudents immediatly thought up a wicked sell for their humiliation. ' Pinching his companion he tipped him a sly wink, whioh was at once under stood to mean. ' Fun ahead — watch me.' Pretty soon along came the con duotor and said ' Fores ' Neither stu dent paid any attention. 'Fares,' yelled the conductor. Still no re sponse. Then the fare taker leaned oyer and shook the nearest man by the shoulder. The student turned round quickly and saw who it was. He Bmilod pleasantly, pointed to his ears and mouth, and handed out a threepence. Then he Bmiled again and shook his companion who was staring vacantly out of the window. The second student thereupon went through the same ears and mouth pantomime, and finally produced a coin. Then the first student laughed silently, and made some ...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 26 October 1898

TO THE EDITOB. Dear Sin,— Heading the commenta -in to-doy'B issue o£ lie Times, an out sider would be under the impression 'that Cootamundra had its gravitation 'scheme to blame for what, I might 'term the water supply failure. But then it must be remembered, that. Cootamundra had in th.e first instance, ' -a pumping scheme, over which a lot of money was spent, and it had to be ?superseded by gravitation. ? In my 'opinion we could never bear the enor 'mous expense that pumping water' 'Srom wells on the flat, would enlal, '?and I trust the Councillors will, if they go in for such, a scheme, give the -gravitation One the preference. — --^'-'M Yours, &c, RATEPAYER.

CULLING SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 26 October 1898

CULLING SEED WHEAT. There is money in selecting picked ears of wheat from the growing crop for seed purposes before the machine goes in. The importauce of selecting SL'ed wheat in this way should be fully recognised by the farmer, be cause, if more attention wero given to it, much heavier vields of grain than are now harvested would ba obtained. Some of the best and most popular of the wheats now grown have, been raised from culled heads, showing re markable development among the ordioary crop, the groin thus obtained being sown separately in carefully pr.pared plots, until, by proceas of natural increase, sufficient has been accumulated for full ^?ding purposes. By experiments iniiia'ed some time ago by the Victorian Government agri cultural chemist, it has been clearly shown how remarkable ia the improve ment that takes place aa regards pro lificness and quality by selecting well developed graina from specially culled heads, and continuing the pro cess from year to year. In additi...

WATER SUPPLY SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 26 October 1898

WATER SUPPLY SCIIEMT?. Wk have not yet properly digested tho various wuter supply schemes submitted to the Council, but from pnst ex; erionce wo favor the gravita tion scheme in proferenco to a pumping one. Tho latter idea looks very, simple and inexpensive to most people, but, we think' that the Government -in the urab instance would not allow a pumping scheme, as the Council would be unable to pay interest oh the, capital cost. The gravitiition scheme'; suggested seems easy of accomplish ment ; there will bo no engineering required, and all tho labor will he practically masonry and pick' and shovel work. The Cootamundra, scheme can be taken as no criterion, as thero the country is all level — very different from tho ground hereabouts.
