Old Age Pensions. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 19 September 1902
Old Age Pensions. . — O ? , \ . The idea which prompted the' Old Age Pensions Act was certainly well con ceived. x Now and again unworthy persons impose on those w^o ad minister the Abt, but in tbe main the recipients are deserving pfeopll who bave^been unable ': to make provision for their closing days. The general opinion 13 that the pensions are a wise provision, and that while it is good that the deserving should receive them uugcuuKiugiy, care should be taken I that they should not be a premium to 1 idleness. An instance has come to 1 light down South where an old man, 1 because he gathered a few bags of 1 charcoal for sale, had his pebsion cut 1 down by £2 per annum. Ah act of fe this kind, apart from its absorditv, is & out of harmony with the spirit of the 1 Act, which is not to- endow idleness 1 but to help those who are too old to ® earn a proper living. . It is unfair 'to 1 penahse a pensioner for doing a little 11 work if he feels able. : The active man I would, ...
Oil Cake. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 19 September 1902
j OH Cake. The above being- very largely used throughout this district, as food for stock, it would, perhaps, be interesting to oar readers, to know from what it is manufactured. It is a highly nutri tive, and consequently ainoat valuable fodder. Oil cake is make from tbe residue which remains after ' grinding the oil out of cocoanuts, linseed, or rape seed. The principal oonstituents are fat and albumin— fibonfc 16 per oent.Tof the former and 10 per cent, of the latter, thus proving it to be a rich, fattening food, and possessing as it does a slight laxative property is invaluable for weak stock, or those in low condition. Medicinally it will be fouqd most suitable for horses that are stable-fed, evep when bran, &o., are low in price, ahd plentiful.

DR. ROSS'S BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 19 September 1902
DR. ROSS'S BILL. Writes a Sydney correspondent With regard to Dr. Ross's little hobby, the House perchance has good reason for its so consistent rejection. The Juvenile Suppression S.u^aug B.ll is o le of the finest bonne bouches that our legislators get. It provides inexhaustible fun, and has become a recognised butt at which to launch their witticisms. If by some extraordinary chance the bill was passed this fund of amusement would be alto gether lost, consequently they don't pass it. They keep it going as long as they can and then reject it in the sure and certain hope of its resurrection in the ensuing session.
