Cargo. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 7 December 1900
Cargo. j (From otir Correspondent.) On the outskirts of Cargo considerable damage was caused last week by a hail storm which Cargo had the good fortune to escape. Messrs R. Davidson, J. Boailen, M and p. Sharkey, and H. Roberts suffered considerable loss, both in crop and fruit. Harvesting is now in full swing, some good yields of wheal being the result. A number of paddocks being stripped are yielding at the rate of about 8 or 9 bags to the ac'i-e of good quality wheat. The late crops, as might be expected-, will turn out very poor, and in some instances are considered as a complete failure. I Grass is very plentiful in the district, though dry, and all the stoek are in good condition, though water is beconling a very scarce commodity. Shearing -at the principal sheds ift the district is naturally at an end, and the clips as a rule are very good, both in quantity and quality. Railway matters are very quiet, thoilgh I suppose the league will awaken from its dreams On January next wh...
