Of Interest to Women. Hygiene and Sickness. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 2 May 1919
By Mother o' Pearl Hygiene and Sickness. Few women realise how easily this influenza epidemic is communicated from -one person to another. If women could be brought to realise this fact the battle would soon be over and the restrictions, which are causing so much j monetary loss to many and, certainly, ' inconvenience to all, would soon beat an | end. For a woman's influence in such : a matter extends to every member of , her household, i,:u| ir all m each home I observed the necessary sanitary and i precautionary measures, the enemy t would soon be repulsed. ! One simple rule of cleanliness is the } observance of washing the hands be j tore touching food or eating it. A j great many wuir.cn do not see that their j children are thus refreshed and pro J tected from germs before sitting dow.i : to table. In good .Jewish homes this is ! a rule, indeed a religion, for with them cleanliness indeed ranks next to Godli ; ness. A doctor friend of mine once ' told me that he invariably gargl...
THE PROGRESSIVE FARMER. Simplest Way of Making Pit Silage. To SAVE STOCK IN DROUGHTS How to Fill Pits and Prabable Cost of Excavatian to Feed 1000 Sheep a Day. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 2 May 1919
THE PROGRESSIVE FARMER.0?, TO SAVE STOCK IN DROUGHTS How to Fill Pits and Prabable Cost of Excavatian to Feed 1000 Sheep a Day. The previous articles have pointed our. the value of silage to the wheat and sheep farmer ami the pastoralist, the most suitable crops, the ease with which they can be conserved and the simple way in which suitable pits can be made. Cutting with the reaper and binder is the most economical method, as the ease with which the sheaves can be handled makes up for the cost of the twine. A team of about six men is re quired, one to drive the binder, and help with the waggons when he has cut enough crop for the day's work, four men with two waggons, and one inaii in the pit. If waggons are not avail able, slides can be used for bringing in the material. Slides are very handy for the purpose and one man can load and bring in a lot of stuff iu a day. In filling the pit the sheaves are laid lengthways and the twine cut to allow the material to settle evenly. It is pr...

DEATH OF MR WILLIAM SLATER. Mr. William Slater, who died at his home in Newcastle on Sunday, was a very old resident of the Hunter dis- trict. He arrived here from Folke- stone (England) about fifty-five years ago, and was a witness of the palmy days of West Maitland and Morpeth.

Mr. Slater was a keen amateur fisherman, being an expert with rod and line on the fresh-water streams and a leader in the many schnapper excursions out of New- castle. Mr. Slater is survived by a large family of children and grandchildren, by whom he is deeply mourned. The funeral took place at Sandgate on Monday, and was attended by many old personal friends and comrades.

STRATEGIC RAILWAY LINK. West Narrabri to Baradine Railway. HUNDREDS OF MILES SAVED. Would Open Up Pillaga Scrub Lands and Would be Salvation of Starving Stock. When the Premier visited Navrabri, last week, Mr. Brake had a short in terview with liini on the subject of a railway between West Navrabri an.] Baradiiie. The interview took place at the close of the meeting at the Town Hall, and as Mr. Holman had no tune to give the matter close atten tion, he asked Mr. Brake to forward to him the particulars of the proposal. This has been done, according to the Ncrth Western Courier. The text of the statement sent to the Premier is as follows:— "There is' great need to connect W Narrabri with Baradine. A railway i.c-m Coonamble, through Baradine, to West Narrabri would open up the great north and south line from Queensland to Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide. There would then be only a short section, from Garah to Goondhvindi, to complete the connection, a dis tance of about thirty miles. T...

ARMIDALE. 700 Soldiers from Armidale. The temporary roll of honoj covering the city of Armidale and district, and now on view at the local court house, comprises 6!)S names. Several more have yet to be added, so that over 700 men actually went to the front from this district, while the rejects must., number l'ully several hundreds more. The record is an excellent one, and shows that this quarter of the State played its proper part in this respect, apart from what no doubt constitute record voluntary contributions* on a population basis to the various war funds.

The County of Cumberland Ministry. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
The County of Cumberland Ministry. The Premier, Mr. Holman, with a great oratorical flourish, one day last week produced a report issued by the Department of Agriculture, which de tailed at some length the progress-that had been made in the scheme of erect ing wheat elevators and silos in various parts of New South Wales. With much apparent gusto the hon. gentleman pointed to the fact that a number of the structures for safely storing the grain had already been built, whilst others were well on the way towards completion, and he appeared to dwell with special emphasis upon the good work that had been accomplished in the construction of an elevator at Darling Island of large dimensions and equal, he stated, to the task of storing and load ing all the grain that might be for warded from the country for export, for some time to come. A stranger just arriving in Sydney, and knowing little or nothing of the agricultural produc tion of the State, would , be entitled to pardon if, on readi...
MOREE. Winter Outlook is Serious. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
MOREE. | Winter Outlook is Serious. With the exception of isolated por tions the district generally is now in a very bad state. Men in the northern portion have been able to hold out, but holdings in the southern part are in a very bad plight. Large numbers of district stock continue to cross tho border into Southern Queensland in search of grass, while starving stock from Walgett, Narrabri, and other dis tricts also on their way to Southern Queensland, arrive at Mungundi by train. Numbers of Moree stock owners who are on the roads with their stock went as far as Tenterfield, and had to leturn to their holdings. They have been compelled to strike out again in search of the urgently necessary grass country. The matter of saving a num ber of these stock is "in the lap of the gods/' for they travel on trust ing to luck to find grass wherever they can. All the stock routes in the dis trict are practically eaten out, and many owners, in view of the severity of the drought, are questionin...
NO PRIVILEGED CLASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
NO PRIVILEGED CLASS. (By the Hon. James M. Beck, U.S.A.) We should enter into a gr at cam-, paign of education to teach the manual toiler thatwe are all in the same 'boat, that he suffers worst from class antag onism, and that his material happiness depends not upon the artificial restora j tion of production, but its increase. "We must teach him this elementary fact ia political economy that his happiness de pends not so much upon the amount of his wages as their purchasing power and that the latter is measured by the quantity produced. We must so govern that there is no privileged class in the nation and that all, capitalist and man ual toiler alike, are but the different parts of an Orchestra and that only by playing together as good musicians can the sj'mphony of progress be played.

Tamworth made the fix ture at about the first committee meet ing after this year's show, and it is made after due consideration of mat ters affecting the interests of the public and exhibitors. Unfortunately, how ever, Glen Times, having fixed upon tha same dates, is obdurate in the matter. It is, it appears from correspondence received from the Glen Innes secretary, an ancient custom for that town to hold its show on a fixed date. Glen Innes, therefore, has protested against. Tamworth's action. Tamworth, on the other hand, finds itself between the devil ...
