AGRICULTURAL SEEDS. DEPTHS TO SOW WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
AGRICULTURAL SEEDS. . DEPTHS TO SOW WHEAT. At the Roseworthy Agricultural College, South Australia, experi ments extending over three years were carried out respecting the best depths to plant wheat in the various kinds of soil. Professor Perkins, Principal of the College, with the Assistant Experi mentalist (Mr W. J. Stafford), con ducted the experiments, and they de scribe the methods adopted in the "Journal of Agriculture," South Aus tralia. They state that in the year 1903—a year particularly disastrous to the college crops—the failure or portion of the wheat crop was, right ly or wrongly, attributed to unduly deep sowing. This led to a series of experiments relative to the best depths to sow wheat. IN SANDY SOIL. The depths to sow wheat were tested in both light and sandy soil, and in rather heavy loam. The sum mary of the experiments regarding sandy soil, in good seeding condition, shows: — 1. That seed sown between J inch and 1 inch deep germinates most freely. 2. That up to ...
CANOWINDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
CANOWINDRA. We regret to report that Mr John Boyd, of the Victoria Hotel, has been seriously indisposed during the past week. Mrs Pagan, of Newport, Kentucky (America), is at present on a visit to her brother, Mr W. Bassett, of "Pine Lodge," Lockwood. This is the first time they had seen each other for 46 years. Owing to the large amount of wheat traffic the Eugowra-Canowin-^. dra road is now in i very biii- 00*11 c el near "Canowindra was sold a few days ago for £32/10/- per acre. A few days ago Mr C.

He used it this week to con vey his fellow Councillors on a tour round the Boree Shire. Nearly 50,000 bags of wheat are now stacked at the Great Western 'Mill. :

WESTERN DISTRICT NEWS. PAES CRIBBED PROM OUR EXCHANGES. GHtENFELL.

GREAT RESULTS. FORBES FREEZING WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
FORBES FREEZING WORKS. In a recent issue we were able to give portion of tlie results of the Forbes Freezing Company's first shipment of lambs to London, and our readers will remember how satisfactory were the figures given. The London comment on the lambs was as follows:—"They are of good quality, and lambs of this descrip tion will find a ready sale at higher prices than ordinary G.A.Q. Austra lian lamb." It will also be remem bered that the company topped the market in tallow on the day of sale, the price paid being up to £35 per ton. On top of-these gratifying fig ures we are now able to give sup plementary details, which place the advantages of the company in a re markable light. At last Forbes show, the company offered a prize on the following con ditions:—Best pen., .of crossbred sucker lambs, most suiable for ex port, to be: killed, frozen, shipped, and sent to the London market, skins and tallow sold in' Sydney, and the net results to go to the owners. Now we have the resul...
A HORSELESS AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
A HORSELESS AGE. It was1 predicted that with the ad vent of the motor car the horse would go, and eventually become a museum subject, But results have not borne out the prediction. In America, for instance, the home of motor cars, the number of horses has just doubled since the commencement of the cen tury, when the cars first began to come into general use. Of course, the number of cars has in creased and multiplied prodigi ously also, but fresh avenues for the use of the horse have oc curred, and as he has been "sup planted,"his price has gone up more than a hundred per cent. In this district fifty years ago, horses were sold for half-a-crown. a head, and were bought at that price for their hides and boiling down. Of course, these were brumbies, and the com parison is not a fair one, but only 10 or 12 years ago, £12 or £15 was a fair price for a draught horse, and a decent hack would bring £ 3 to £ 5. Now look at what a draught will fetch, if anything like a good sort! A well set-...
AUSTRALIAN FARMING. AN AMERICAN'S IMPRESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
AUSTRALIAN FARMING. AN AMERICAN'S IMPRESSIONS. The following is tm American im pression of Australian methods of farming:—"Burning stubbles, close cropping, waste of coarse manures, and summer fallowing impress me as the principal reasons why tlie fer tility of Australian farms has become so largely exhausted, and I cannot believe that your fields will continue long to produce profitable crops by the mere application of superphos phates. If I conjecture rightly, the Australian farmer is making history similar to that made by the early farmers in the older American States, which resulted in exhaustion and abandonment of the farms taken up by the first settlers. These farms are now becoming reoccupied (thanks to the agricultural experiment sta tions), and profitably cultivated, through the practice of an agricul ture aiming at the greatest possible utility of vegetable manures. Che mical analyses reveal in the stable manures a quantity of plant food sufficient to warrant paying as hig...
DOMESTIC SERVANT PROBLEM. IMPORTING BRITISH GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
DOMESTIC SERVANT PROBLEM. IMPORTING BRITISH GIRLS. "It is quite time some practical at tempt was made to solve the domes tic servant problem," said Mrs M. Stewart Barnet., of Sydney, who re cently returned to Sydney from a tour of Europe. It is almost an Im possibility for people to get servants in Australia, yet there are numbers of girls in England willing to come out here were it not for the difficulty of finding the money to pay the pass age. When in Ireland I met seve ral girls, fitted in every way to make admirable servants, who were anxi ous to come to Sydney, but out of their meagre wages could not save sufficient money to pay the passage. This difficulty is easily understood when I tell you the girls in question were only receiving 12/- a month. The high wages ruling in New South Wales for domestic workers is a great attraction to the girls in the home land, hut the almost hopeless impos sibility of-being able to save the ne cessary £ 6 or £ 7 for the passage out of a weekl...
THE GLEBE TRAGEDY. MOIR FOUND GUILTY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
MOIR FOUND GUILTY. The trial of Campbell Moir, charg ed with the murder of Henry Tre vascus, concluded at the Criminal Court, Darlinghurst, on Tuesday. Dr. Chisholm Ross, brain special ist, said that he had examined Moir since his arrest, and had come to the conclusion that he was below the average mental capacity. His Honor, in summing up, point ed out the strong Crown belief that Trevascus was disabled or murdered on the Tuesday. He referred to the evidence that connected Moir with the crime, and said It had been sug gested that the deed might have been done by someone, else. But was there any evidence to support such a supposition? Mr May's evidence, about the two men he saw in the street, his Honor considered Irreva lent to the case. The Crown relied upon the coulter as the weapon which had been used to murder Tre vascus. The accused stayed at Tre main's from 24th to the 30th, and the 30th, and the. coulter was there then. After he left it was not seen again until found in the r...
The Forbes Advocate, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1912. CURRENT TOPICS. VIRTUE OF TOBACCO. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
%\i Jfodms ^b&ocate, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1912. CURRENT^TOPICS. VIRTUE or TOBACCO. Wellington—not the Duke, but the sole survivor of the Wyalong disaster —attributes his escape to tobacco. When overcome by the poisonous fumes he had a mouthful of tobacco, and he thinks it is to this that he owes his life. This is a blow to haters of the weed, and will give scientists something to scratch their foreheads over. The anti-smokers, of course, declare that smoking is in jurious to health, and consequently must be inimical to life, but here is a case of where it saved life. We have often heard of a man fervently declaring that a long beer saved his life on a hot day, but possibly he was speaking in metaphor, and an anti drinker might assure him that what he took for ,new life was an unnatu ral stimulation of his system, which would leave an injurious effect, and call for a repetition of the dose, per haps in ever-increasing quantities. It is wonderful, when one thinks of it, what a ...
