This is to be regretted, for such a good cricketer deserved a substantial purse as a result of such an impor tant match.

COBOCO CARNIVAL. The Coboco branch held its annual carnival on the 17th inst., there be ing a large attendance of visitors present from all the neighbouring towns. Under the energetic guidance of the secretary, Mr. A. McMillan, and the members, preparations were well in hand, and everything went off most smoothly. Mr. J. Murray acted as judge of the ring events, and carried out his duties to the satis faction of all concerned. The miscel laneous events were in the charge of Messrs. H. Hilly and J.

OVER HALF A MILLION SHEEP LESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
OVER HALF A MILLION SHEEP LESS. In view of the good seasons ex perienced in 1910, the casual obser ver would hardly expect to hear of a decrease in the inimber of sheep in New South, WalSs, the great sheep State of the Commonwealth. How ever, there was a decrease, which the progress report, just issued by the Chief Inspector of Stock, sets down for the present at over half-a-mil lion, though this may be modified. The numbers of sheep returned by stock owners in the various protec tion districts, totalled 39,458,915, to which has been added the total of those estimated by the stock inspec tors for districts from which returns had not been received up to the 26th January, 1911, viz., 4,094,190. This brings the total up to 43,553,105, as compared with 44,144,571 for 1909, a decrease of 591,466. Such a falling off seems remarkable, but it is attri buted Dv the Chief Inspector to the cutting up of large estates, substitu tion of cereal growing for sheep rais ing. poor lambing, owing to c...
Stock A "FINE" WOOL RIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
a K A "FINE" WOOL RIVAL. Australia lias long enjoyed the benefit of a monopoly to all intents and purposes in the production of fine wool. It is a gorgeous mono poly, which has meant millions to this country. Will we hold it ? Word comes along now that a big German syndicate is taking steps to try and develop tlie industry in German South Africa. Donnington Girlie-Imported for Mrs. Dawson, c£ Berry. The position in Germany is serious. With a consumption of over four hun dred million pounds of wool, the clip lias fallen off to some twenty-six mil lions. Being a country with a strong idea" of being self-supporting, this does not suit our great commercial | rivals. So they are trying a new gcheme. The main point at present that ' concerns Australia is, whether the Germans will be allowed, like the Transvaal men, to come out here and take away the pick of our stud flocks. For years there has been a constant' stream of some of the best sheep ever bred in this country to South Africa. For...

LAND ON LIVERPOOL PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
LAND ON LIVERPOOL PLAINS. To buyers in search of a snug little Wheat Farm, in a favoured district, and in close proximity to Rail, the sale of the "Booroomin" Estate, 2% miles from Boggabri offers an op portunity rarely met with. The es tate has been subdivided into 10 farms, ranging in areas from 330 acres to 1272 acres, and will be sold by auction at Boggabri, on 20th April next, on exceptionally easy terms. "Booroomin" is one of the picked wheat-growing properties in the Liv erpool Plains district, and the fact that each block is either Avliolly or partially cleared for -the plough, as well as the close proximity to rail (2ys miles), are points that must appeal to prospective buyer?.
The Market Mirror WOOL. Position Very Satisfactory. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
D The Market Mirror WOOL. Position Very Satisfactory. The week lias seen little change in the position of the wool market, but conditions surrounding the trade generally continue very satisfactory. Transactions have been small, but this has been due to the very limi ted quantities available. All the lots passed in at the recent sales have met with keen inquiry, and in most cases,, where.: private business 'has transpired, the prices have been con siderably above the rates bid for these wools in the saleroom. The output from local fellmongery es tablishments has also found no lack of buyers, with prices more than maintained. Of course, in the ab sence of auctions, it is rather diffi-' cult to gauge the exact buying strength of the different sections of the market, but most of the leading agents agree that the majority of the inquiry at the 'present time is coming from Continental buyers, the American section standing pretty rigidly oft' from purchasing. Had the American buyers been o...

WHEAT. An Improved Market. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
WHEAT. An Improved Market. The slightly better feeling which was noticeable in the local wheat market at the close of last week, has, during this week, become much more pronounced, prices showing a very distinct lift. This improvement has been certainly more of a loeal char acter, rather than due to any real advancement in oversea prices. The London market has improved a little, cargoes having sold at up to 34/ per quarter, which is certainly more en couraging to shippers; while further more, freights have come back a bit, so that shippers have been able to add something to theiij limits. Still, the world's position is one of full supplies,, and'there are\ few reasons to' expect any material vbetterment. The requirements of importing coun tries of the world, say, frqm August 1 last to July 31 this year, may be placed-at' 76,000,000 quarters,'vor equal to ' 008,000,'b00 bushels. Of these re quirements, 43,000,000 quarters, or 344,000,000 bushels, have been sup plied to the close of J...
BUSY DRESSMAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
BUSY DRESSMAKERS. What are we going to do next Easter? is a question continually being asked by. tlie woman who thinks ahead. Everybody is answer ing everybody else in dismal fashion, "Nothing," is what the pessimists are saying. And yet, dressmakers tell me that they were never more busy than they are now. "Oh, yes," re spond; the pessimists, "but that is because so many people are going away to England." But that is not at all accurate. A voyage to Eu rope never means much elaborate preparation. Very few indeed are the women patriotic enough and brave enough to buy their whole out fit for the trip, in advance in Syd ney. One woman did this last year; she declared she did not want to waste her time in London shopping, so she bought everything beforehand, and "looked all right," she averred, when she returned to her harbour home. But this is a digression. The fact is that the great body of the public who are not going away, and so well off, and so keen on having a good time that ord...
Electors. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Electors! f We .rg'eacl in' one of our exchanges that a shire ...cleric who was returning officer,! held that, irrespective of whe ther a person ;was enrolled for two or; three ridings, he or she could only ..vote ;in one .riding. One of the coun ; cillors toolc?exception to the decision, and the clerk wrote for an opinion to the Shires' Association. lie re ceived " a reply from Mr. Campbell, stating enrolment.-in each riding en titles a person to vote in each riding. Notwithstanding this the clerk still holds to his opinion that his inter pretation is the-right one. At last meeting , of liis shire council it was agreed to ask,for the opinion of the Department of Public Works on the point. To; us it seems strange that such an interpretation should be insisted on. ?,Sec. .52 (1) says:-"The names, on. the list for the shire shall be en tered on; lists for the: respective rid ings of the sliire, each person's name being entered on the list of each rid ing in which such person . lias ra...

EVENING GOWNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
EVENING GOWNS. Such a change has come over the way in which evening gowns are now ?contrived, that it is hard to see where it will lead us, except to the harem skirt. This eccentricity has already appeared in the daytime in Sydney, and none of us were in tensely shocked. Still, harem skirts have not exactly "caught on" as yet. The method of arranging the skirts of evening frocks in full folds round the ankle, Avhile the upper part of the skirt is rather tight, seems to point the way to the ultimate divi sion of the garment. For tea-gowns, as also for evening dress, there are many things to be said in favour of the Eastern garment. But for the autumn season of 1011 it is un likely we shall see any divided skirts in our ballrooms. Country women .coming to town for Easter gaieties will, therefore, be disappointed if they expect to see any weirdly clad women hopping round like liouris in the ballrooms. Satin and velvet are chosen for the tight, short, dancing skirts. It is quite a probl...
