A Busy Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
A Busy Man. We have heard of inspectors of nuisances being dubbed "municipal Poo-bahs" on account of the multifa rious duties which they have had to undertake in connection with their official position, but it seldom falls to a mayor to be able to have so many irons in the fire at one time. However, the Mayor of Dubbo (Alder man J. H. Hitter) must be a busy man. Some estimate of the amount of interest he takes in public move ments may be gauged from the ad dress 011 an official letter recently forwarded to him by a local humorist. The address read as follows:-"J. H. Hitter, Esq., master plumber and gas fitter, etc., Mayor of Dubbo, Cap tain of Volunteer Fire Brigade, Cap tain Civilian Rifle Club, Captain Se nior Cadets, Vice-President Mechan ics' Institute, member of Progress As sociation, member of Hospital Com mittee, Trustee of.

DAIRY PRODUCE. Mutter is (inn at 8(5/ for choice brands of first quality.

Second grades are still plenti ful, and are not so readily disposed of at 80/ to 84/, while pastry sorts are to be had for 70/. There are large supplies of butter still com ing forward, but the quality of but ter from many districts is not up to the usual standard. First-class but ters are in very good demand for local sales, but second grades are neglected. On the London market New South Wales salted butter is quoted by cable this week at 08/ to 100/, and unsalted 100/ to 102/. Queensland quotations are the same as for New South Wales, but Vic torian is 2/ per ewt. better in each case, and New Zealand 4/ better than Victorian. The supplies going into the home market still show a de cided increase, approximately 32.000 boxes for this week, as compared wit...
FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
FRUIT. Good demand exists for all sound lines, but the list is "diminishing every week. Prices are keeping up fairly well, and the only effects of the long spell of wet weather is found in the watery character of some of the fruit, notably pears, which do not keep well. Growers have been sending in a lot of over-ripe fruit, which lias to be sold cheaply and quickly, or it would be unsaleable at any price. The market is firm at the following quotations: - Apples, dessert, ciioice, !)/ to 10/; medium, 5/ to 0/; small, 2/0-to 3/; cooking,: choice, 3/(5 to 4/, mediunu.. 2/0 to 3/, small 2/, jam lots, 1/0 per gin case.

Motor Cycle Contest. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
Motor Cycle Contest. Dumaresq Council was confronted with an unpleasant task of deciding upon granting permission to hold a hill-climbing contest on the Rock vale road. It was contended that such contests are held in various parts of the State, and there ap peared no objection to them. On the other hand, there were the laws re gulating the speed at which they should travel, and, as one councillor said: "They're racing up-hnl this week, but will want to race down hill next week." However, permis sion was given on the casting vote of the president. .

Loans. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
Loans. The Assistant-i-ioeal Government Engineer (Mr. J. T. Mollison) has written to Berry Council, stating that he had been instructed to in spect bridges in the area damaged by recent flood, so that the Minister could assist by advancing loans re payable by four annual payments without interest. It was decided to reply that council did not deem it wise to borrow. Councils are taking advantage of the offer made by the Minister for Works to lend money without in terest.: The latest report is that Cr. Banner, Byron Shire, reported to the council on his return from Sydney,, that lie did not succeed in getting the £600 grant . from the Govern ment for Dorrouglily Bridge, but he secured £600 for the bridge with out interest for four years. [Is this to be considered a tem porary loan, we wonder? As shires are not empowered to borrow money otherwise.-Ed.]

The matter of appointing a pound keeper was also one for the council to determine, but it was desirable that his appointment be notified in the Gazette to formally establish his status in regard to impounding. It was decided that the necessary re quirements should be carried out.
GOOD-BYE TO MRS. McGOWEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
GOOD-BYE TO MRS. McGOWEN. - As Mrs. J. S. T. McGowen, the wife of the Premier. is going off to Eng fvil&iufcwith her husband, it seemed a ' fitting thing to say, not good-bye, but "au revoiiy'5 to her. Mrs.' Cann. 'the Speakers wife, and the ..wives of the 'Ministry, were the hostesses, and women of all shades of political opi nion were present. Just as in the case of the citizens' farewell to the Premier, party feeling was dropped as much as possible, andvMrs. McGow en was entertained merely as the-wife of a prominent public man. We have so much political fare served up to us in our daily round now, that'a sigh of relief is heard when politics for once can be set on one sideband a friendly feeling established. For why should difference of opinion make difference in friendship? It looks .at the present time, as if this query were never more in need of an an swer. Bitter feeling runs very high indeed, and it .is pleasant to record a break in the current of animosity between p...
Noxious Weeds. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
Woxious Weeds. Cr. Hirsch, Timbrebongie Shire "" Council, drew attention at last meet ing to the weeds growing on the tra velling stock routes. He stated that it was no use the Shire Councils try ing to eradicate noxious weeds if the P.P. Boards did not help them. The President stated that the P.P. Board was willing to render financial assistance to the council, but they had no power to do so. They might get over the difficulty if the rate payers would assist by cutting stray plants outside their fences. It would cost very little to do so, whereas it might cost the council a great deal to send men out to cut them. Cr. Frater moved that the clerk be in ?; structed to send out circulars asking ' thev.cp-operatio# of ratepayers, and that the Engineer keep an eye on the lessees of the travelling stock routes. The motion was carried. ISfarraburra Shire Council received a letter from the Linton F. and S. Association, asking them to call the 'femora Council's attention to the presence of B...
Outward Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
/ Outward Correspondence. Cr. JSTess, Narraburra Shire Coun cil, suggested at last meeting that in order to save the time of the coun cil it would be a good idea for the President to look over the outward correspondence before the meeting commenced, and report to the coun cil that it was all right, so as to do away with the necessity of reading it through. A better way still would be, perhaps, for the Clerk to an nounce from liis letter book the name of the person to whom the letter was sent, and that, if desired by any member of the council, that parti cular letter could then be read.

HORSJS HAIR, &C. Horse hair continued extremely firm tliis week. Horns and bones are very firm at unchanged prices.

Best South Coast chopped, to £8/1/; medium growth, £8 to £8/5/; and good light from £7 to £7/15/ per ton. A New Zealander at Motucke has raised a new peach, and called it "James' Seedling," Its great merit is that it carries splendidly, besides being of excellent flavour.
HOW TO DO UP JAP. SILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
iiOW TO DO UP JAP. SILK. Silk frocks for children and blous es, which look so well made up of the soft Jap. silk, are only too often quite ruined by being badly lauiulried. With a little: care this may be wash ed and ironed to appear fresh and new. If the blouse is white steep it in cold water for an hour before wash ing. Put a cake of yellow soap into a wooden tub or an earthenware basin large enough to hold the goods, and pour over it a kettle of boiling water, adding enough cold to make it right for the hand. Stir briskly round till a lather is formed, and then take out the soap. Too much soap and too hot water makes the silk yellow. .Put the blouse or dress in. and. squeeze and press gently, only rubbing the dirtiest parts. Swill in plenty cold water with a dash of blue in it, and if the blouse requires stif fening at all, gum water should be added, in the proportion of a tea spoonful to every pint. To make gum water, dissolve an ounce of gum Arabic in y2 pint boiling water, str...
EVENING GOWNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
EVENING GOWNS. What .with the gauziness. of day gowns grooving more and more flimsy, and the shortness of the ball skirts, it is becoming harder and harder to tell whether a gown is for evening or for afternoon. Another reason for the likeness is that the low neck ? is cut now very much lower as re gards the material itself, while the "decolletage" is filled up with trans parent txille or net, very often flesh coloured or deep cream. A high-neck ed dress so treated is so much like an evening gown, that the difference amounts to just - nothing. Elbow sleeves are often seen on ball gowns, and sliort skirts are the rule for danc ing frocks. The satin shoe is of the utmost importance now, as it is so much in evidence. It must match the dance-gown, and it must be satin. Velvet shoes are reserved for day: wear. Buckles of brilliants are now the favourite finish for dancing shoes, the very tiny ones being just as smart as the large square "Lily Brayton" buckles. The shoe of the moment is d...
TO AVOID EXTRAVAGANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
TO AVOID EXTRAVAGANCE. . Furs/ laces, silks, and satins, these are items tliatiswell the list of the extravagant .woman's expenditure. For the , first, fortunately, the item does not worry us in this State. A very little fur goes a very long way, even in winter. Then we have the difficulty of keeping the . fur free from moths during its . summer. spell of idleness, so that taking one con sideration with another, fur need not cause much of a hole in the dress allowance of the economical person. Lace is going into retreat, but very little is seen on the new things, its place being usurped by the large range of Oriental embroideries in all kinds of metallic tones, and soft-hued silks. These .are certainly expensive to start with, but the. custpm does not lend itself to overloading a gown with such; often a half-yard will sup ply the . necessary touch to the cos tume. Again, this embroidery keeps its colour and freshness better than lace; it does not soil, nor get raggy and saggy.- As f...
FOR THE COUNTRY TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
/FOR THE COUNTRY TRADE. . In the ready-made department of a large firm, I saw a little frock of .a-' kind specially destined for the coun try visitor. .Made of what a season or two ago Ave called "silk voile," but, now more often described as "union de soie," of a rather substan-' ktiM ',texture, almost a cashmere de soie.' This model had a gauged skirt, matle in one with the bodice, and gauged at the waist, the gauging also showing on the shoulders, which, of course, were of the "Magyar" va riety. This, with a little braiding, was the sole adornment of this ef fective gown. It is quite a mistake to prose continually on the fright fully expensive phase which fashion is passing through, for,' taking the aforesaid royal blue union gown as ?one instance only, it was less than £5. The economically minded woman can be well dressed to-day at as small cost as ever she could: 1
