MriililONAIIUE'S HOMAXCE. MR JAY GOULD'S MARRIAGE. | When the announcement was made a week or two ago that Mi1 Frank Jay Gould, the American millionaire, had taken Abbotsford, no one imagined thnt the historical residence ot Sir Walter Scott was about to play a part in a wedding romance, the details ol which, if fully known, might form a fitting parallel to some of the tales even of the author of "Waverley" (said the "Scotsman" on November 3). In this year's issue of "Who's Who in America," it is set forth that Mr Frank J. Gould, capitalist, was born in New York in 1S7S, that he is a son ot' Jay Gould, and that he was . married in 1901 to Helen M. Kelly. As was his father before him, Mr F.

THIRD CLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911

V / THIRD CLASS. ? Third-class carriages on many of our 'railways-are nojv much more numerous than they used to be. We take the fol lowing- extract from the Hospital: "We are fully aware o£ the fact tlhat our third-class railway accommodation on many of the 'lines is abominable. A series of glycerine-plate cultures made in a carriage of any of the . more or loss-from a sanitary point of view badly managed railways would,- yield most interesting bacteriological crops, and we are by no means'sure whether passengers travelling in such carriages would not be able to substantiate a claim for damages in case they develop a-ny specific disease. Nor are wo "con fident that an action could not be sup ported on the ground of Injury-to health arising out of the'non-provision of lava tory accommodation." -

PRODUCTIVE CAPACITY OF DAIRY CATTLE. : (From tlie Agricultural Gazette.) M. A. O'Callaqiian. WE have (it the Government Stud Farm at Berry representatives of all the prin cipar dairy breeds of cattle, and records of the milk yields of these animals have been kept for years. We have now reached a stage when cows bred on the farm are sufficiently numerous to be able to get a fair representation of the breeds, and to compare the animals bred in JS'ew South Wales with those im ported. Unfortunately,, owing to con tinued periods of drought each year during the last three or four years, wo have been compelled to forego anything in the shape of a reliable test under Australian conditions of these animals. Any tests which Involve entire hand- ; feeding are not suitable to the general conditions In Now South Wales, and hence any records of that nature would be of little Interest to our breeders and dairy farmers. This season, however, we have had (juite an average quantity of rain on the Sou...

JAPANESE A NATION OF SAILORS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911

JAPANESE A NATION OF SAILORS. I'lio Japanese are at home upon the sea. They are a nation of sailors. They : had their men-of-war in feudal days, and sent out annies to Korea and China. They are wonderfully nimble with their feet and hands, it beiiig commonly suid that the Japanese has 20 fingers-ten on his hands, and ten on his feet. They aro also good fighters, and jiiay bo called a nation of warriors. At the time that Commodore Percy opened the country, it was ruled by a class of feudal knights and retainers, whose profession was war. The sons of these old warriors aro now at the head of the Japafiese Government, and aro the leaders of the army and navy. They are animated by the spirit of their fathers. They are.the most patriotic peoplo on earth, the most continental, and the most- ambitious. Thoy delight in the spectacular, and al most any one of them would bo willing to die if his death would leave a reputa tion behind him. At present every Japanese between 17 and 30 is subject...

THE DAIRY. BUILDING PIG STYES. USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911

THE .DAIRY. . BUILDING PIG ST JfES. USEFUL, HINTS'. Too many pig-styes (states the Eng lish "Farmer and Stockbreeder") are" built in a careless manner, irrespective of sanitary arrangements and air space. On this latter point it may be remarked that a well-developed pig requires at least 150 cubic feet of ajr space. Draughty and ill-ventilated styes are the cause of much sickness among pigs. A proper system of ventilation is of great importance, and a suitable ar rangement would be by means of Louvre boards inserted in the.openings in the walls and roof, with inlets arid outlets for air circulation. One very general method of ventilation is by means of drain pipes inserted in the gable ends of the styes. In construct ing styes, the choice of a material stone, brick, concrete, etc.-will depend largely upon local facilities. Tiles, slates, and corrugated-iron sheeCing may be used Cor the roofs; for the ln sides some warmer material is ess:n tial, as it has been too often proved tl.at ...
