RED POLLED CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899

RED POLLED CATTLE. This might be described as an im- proved breed of English stock, and though the great antiquity claimed for it by its ablest admirers promises to remain for ever a matter of doubt, it can now rank among the best of our British breeds as being a hardy, thrifty, general-purpose cow, capable of high development both in milk and beef. The polled cattle of Norfolk and Suffolk have always been apoken of, as very heavy milkers, and their angular lean forms and large stomachs'! denoting the true dairy cow, were often a subject of ridicule by writers who favoured the beef breed. While some authorities claim that the Red Polls came to England with the Danes, having been descended from the Hungarian breed of a similar nature, othera, among them being Youatt, are of opinion that they got their hornless characteristic from the Polled Galloway. It seemB hardly necessary to go to the Galloway for tho hornlesB characteristic, when we consider that conturieB ago England had its he...

DAIRY NOTES. The Improvement of New Sooth Wales Stock. From the Agricultural Ga[?]ette of N.S. W. PART VI. THE SHORTHORNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899

DAIRY NOTES. The Improvement of New South Wales Stock. From the Agricultural Gazette of N.S. W. By M. A. O'Callaghan. PART VI. THE SHORTHORNS. This breed is the most remarkable and most noted of the whole bovine race. Wherever one travels they cannot get away from the English Shorthorn. Some of the cattle of every country show the impress of the Shorthorn sire. Its great and universal popularity is the best guarantee of its UBefulnesB. The history of the breed is bo generally known that details would Bound nlmoBt ancient. For our purpose suffioe ib to say that the Booth strain of the braed aimed suley at flesh-production, and the Bates strain sought to combine milk with flesh, or, in other words, the old milking animal was bred with a view to beef, at the same time endeavouring to retain ita great milking qualities. How well this has been done can be judged by results. In the great milking com petitions at the English ahowB the Shorthorn still holds pride of place. The Lincoln Red S...

A Clean Put Away. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899

A Clean Put Away. A lady who was urging some friends to dinner felt disgusted when her eight year-old son came in and said : 'Mrs. Jones says she can't spare no bread, and Mrs. Fox ain't at home ; so I didn't get any butter.' The friends thought they had better dine elsewhere, and the lady thought so too ; but she taught that boy that the way of the transgressor was hard. He couldn't sit down for a whole week after his mother had finished with him.

An Exciting Chase. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899

An Exciting Chase. 'Well, said the red-faced man, ' the   most exciting chase I ever had happened a few years ago in Russia. One night, when sleighing about ten miles from my destination, I discovered, to my intense horror, that I was being followed by a pack of wolves. 'I fired blindly into the pack, killed one of the brutes, and, to my delight, saw the otherB stop to devour it. After doing this, hotrever, they still came on. I kopt on repeating the dose, with the Bame result, and eaoh occasion gave me an opportunity to whip up my horses. Finally, there was only one wolf left, yet on it came, with its fierce eyes glaring in anticipation of a good hot supper.' Here the man who had been sitting quietly in the corner burst forth into a fit of laughter. ' Why, man,' eaid he, 'by your way of reokoning, that last wolf muBt have had the other twelvo inside it I' 'Ah!' said the red-faced man, 'now I remember, it did wobble a bit.'

The Problem Solved. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899

The Problem Solved. At a meeting of a certain football association in the North, an application was made to them by a person who was desirous of being appointed a referee in their district. The would-be referee attended before the meeting to prove his fitness for the onerous duties of the post, and several questions as to the rules of the game, etc., being put to him, he gave satisfac- tory replies to them all. Then, thinking to floor him, the chairman put the following poser: 'Suppose the ball, kicked from the field of play, were to drop on the top of the goal-post and stay there ; what would you call it ?' The reply of the would-be knight of the whistle was quick and to the point. 'I should call it a miracle,' he said.

Wonderful Old Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899

Wonderful Old Women. It is an acknowledged fact that women more often attain a very great age than men. Among women of the most famous centenarians was the Countess of Desmond, who died in the reign of James I. from the effects of an accident. Her reputed age was 145 years. This wonderful old lady at the age of 100 years was so lively and well that she actually took part in a dance ; and only five years before her death she travelled from Bristol to London — a tremendous journey in those days — in order to per- sonally attend to some business matters. Lady Desmond's fame sinks into nothing compared with that of a French woman of the name of Marie Prion, who died in St. Colombe at the age of 150 years. Towards the end of her life she subsisted entirely on goat's milk and cheese, and, although her body was so shrunk and wasted that she weighed only 46 pounds, she retained her mental faculties to the last. It is a curious fact, but some women have been known to enter a second youth whe...

A Visitor from Another World. No One Knows from Which. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899

A Visitor from Another World. No One Knows from Which. The meteorological section of the British Museum will shortly receive a valuable addition to its treasures, which is now on its way from Australia. This is the 'Bruce meteorite,' a monster stranger from the skies which weighs very nearly four tons. Where it came from, of course, no man knows, but it is known that it fell at Murrangong, South Australia. It chanced upon the property of a farmer who did not happen to have any use for meteorites weighing four tons, and so he sold his unlooked-for and decidedly awkward acquisition to a Mr. Bruce for £2. Mr. Bruce, who now lives in Scotland, bought it for the purpose of presenting it to the British Museum. The Government of Victoria interested itself in trying to retain the curiosity, and offered Mr. Bruce £1,000 for his rights, but the Scotsman replied that 'money would not buy it,' so the   article is now on its way over. It is composed of almost pure iron, and is said ...

Sandwich Dance. GREAT SUCESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899

Sandwich Dance. GREAT SUCCESS.   On Wednesday evening, 19th in- stant, a sandwich dance in aid of the Church of England Building fund took place in the Masonic Hall. As quite a plethora of dancing fixtures has been recently announced, it was thought by many that the sandwich dance would not be well attended, owing to the fact that the Hospital Ball would draw a good number. But the management, by perseverance and judicious advertising, carried out their plans well, and a gratifyingly large attendance greeted them as a result on the evening mentioned. Over 100 artistic ball programmes had been kindly provided by Miss Nicholls, but these were soon taken, so that there were more than 50 couples present, The interior of the Masonic Hall had undergone a real transformation scene, and for the moment one might have been pardoned for thinking that he had strayed into the Japanese scenery of the Geisha. However, that's not where our reporter was. Beautiful festoons of gorgeous g...

Earl Beauchamp is nothing if not candid. ' Ho says he is anxious to visit the country districts, but ho must wait for invitations. Someone asks if the invitations will now flock in ? The writer was wondering what Cobar could invite biin up to open ; when the thought of the race week bazaar suggested itself. Unfortunately the Gov. does'nt believe in bazaars for churches, so that would never do. When the spring comes, and the rodents multiply, Earl Beauchamp might be induced to visit Cobar on a rabbit-destroying holiday like the illustrious and energetic Lord Jersey. Mr Elisha Berry, of this place, says he never had anything do him so much good and give such quick rolief from rheumatism as Chamberlains Pain Balme He was bothered greatly with shooting pains from hip to knee until he used thiB liniment, which affords prompt relief. — B. 3?.
