CONCERNING DRINKING. (BY THE PERIPATETIC PHILOSOPHER.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 April 1869

CONCERNING DRINKING-. (BY THE PERIPATETIC PHILOSOPHER.) SOBRIETY is an excellent virtue, but why make such a fuss about it ? It would appear-from the conversation that is current about the town just now, that there is a secret Bociety which has bound its members by. a solemn. oath not to drink wine. For myself, though I deispise a man who has not sufficient moral courage to avoid making a beast of himself with liquor, and think, earth holds no more disgusting sight than that of the unshaved, blear-eyed, dirty, foul-mouthed drunkard, still I have a rooted antipathy to professed "tee totalers." They are so frequently humbugs; so frequently oily, hypo critical knaves.. , The man who does not drink because he'desires to "set a good example" is an honourable good hearted fellow; the man who knows that alcohol will make him ill and who yet drinks'it, is an ass ; the man who drinks for the pleasure of getting drunk is a boast; but the Mawworm who becomes a "teetotaler" for profit, and snuf...

THE MORT MEDALS. (From the Sydney Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 April 1869

THE MORT MEDALS. (From the Sydney Mail. Mr. T. S. Mort, and Mr. Mort m con junction with his partners, Messrs. Mort and Co., has liberally placed four gold, medals, each of the value of £10, at the disposal of the Agricultural Society of New South Wales. They are designed for special purposes, but the Society undertake to see to their suitable award.. The objects contem . plated by these gentlemen are charac teristically practical and sound. Mr. Mort's medal for 100 pounds of pre served uncooked meat, found to be in the best condition for- consumption or | exportation after having been kept a certain period, will assist to bring about what we are anxious to see. The medal offered, by Messrs. Mort and Co. for the best mode of preserv ing the skins of animals, and removing the wool and hair from the same, will tend to direct attention to a very im portant,branch of economy, now almost entirely overlooked. For want of some: feasiblei ;mode of preserving bul lock skins and sheep's pelts...

HORSESHOEING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 April 1869

HORSESHOEING. \ > A correspondent of the Australasian writes : " A correspondent in a late im pression of your paper questions if any of us have ingenuity enough to shoe a horse on M: Challier's principle, and as, no one has responded to the challenge, some people may think it is not to be done. Lest this should be the case, I beg to^ state that I had a horse shod so on February 4.. Myj only instructions were;the very vague ones given in your previous issue, but the way I had it done was thiB-the shoe is nearly half an inch deep, by about three-eighths wide (some horses' hoofs will require broader and some narrower shoes, according to" their formation), (ind fitted into a right-angled groove cut in the outside or crust of the foot, BO that the shoe is level with or pro jects very slightly over the sole, but laterally must be perfectly even with toe, sides, and heel. My experience leads me to believe that this system is better than the old one (there will be trouble to make farmer...

CONTENTS OF TANK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 April 1869

CONTENTS OF TANK. .THE following letter appears''in: ithe ?Australasian | " Sir,-Permit me to point out'that,' in replying to ' Squatter ' and' J. M'. B.' in your last issue, you have fallen into a very common error in assuming that ?the area of the tank, at its middle depth, multiplied by the depth, gives .the cubic contents. j " The contents from ' Squatter's' idata are 992 l-9 cubic yards, but it has jto be assumed that the slopes are jstraight (or true planes) and the,;sur jface of the ground and the bottom of .the tank level. The rule then is-add I together the top and bottom areas and ?four times the area at the middle depth, laud multiply this sum by a sixth of the depth. Should the surface of the ground not be level, the above, rule ?would give less than the true contents, and should the bottom of the tank not. be level it would give more, but the error in the latter case would be less in-proportion than in the former. ^ " As many tanks are now being sunk on back .runs, wher...

THE STATION AND THE FARM. GRAZING ENTERPRISE IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 April 1869

THE STATION AND THE FARM, GRAZING ENTERPRISE IN VICTORIA. A FEW days since a pleasant pic-nic party assembled near the margin of Lake Keilambete, . to celebrate the completion of certain works of an interesting and important charac ter. A spirited landowner of the dis trict, says the Melbourne Argus, from which we take the following accbunt, Mr. John Thompson, had just per fected a scheme for the bringing of water en to his estate, and in collecting his friends and neighbours together to wit ness the success of his operation, he did something more than minister to ;their pleasure and his own-he also used the most effective means to spread the fame of his success, and so dissemi nate a knowledge of some things that it concerns the public to become ac quainted with. It appears that the Keilambete estate comprises 10,500 acres of excellent land, which is divi ded into fifteen paddocks, and other wise improved. But the productive ness of the land was greatly diminished by a scarcity of ...

THE OLD RUSTIC APHORISMS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 April 1869

THE OLD EXJSTIC APHORISMS. AT the American Farmers' Club held in New York, Dr. J. V. 0. Smith, of Boston, read a short but entertaining paper. Ho said that for 300 years in England, and 100 years in America, the most valuable literature of agricul ture consisted of old saws or maxims, generally thrown into rhyme, sotno of them quaint and homely, bat often spicy and valuable. He had been, at some pains in gleaning in old books and papers, and would read a few of the most pertinent: It butter churned in morning air la kept iu a cool place with, care, The taste is nice ; But that which shows the buttermilk Don't sell to those who dress in silk For any price. When the wind i8 cast, and turkeys gobble, It is no time a horse to hobble ; But let him range to catch the breeze-: Should he be troubled with the heaves. An ox with broad horns and short glossy hair, Is good for a team, the market, or fair. The slackest farmer, strange to say, " Is known for being out of hay. It does not pay in a...

" Thin Is truo liberty, when freeborn men, Having toadviso tne pubiic, may speak free." MlLTOK. SATURDAY, APRIL; 1TV 18691 ONCE more the note . of alarm . is sounded from England. The price of : wool has again fallen, and the depres sion, it is said, is likely to increase. In th§ absence of the full information, which a day. or two will probably, give us, it is impossible, of course, to say what is the precise cause of this new misfortune to the pastoral interest. But there is too much reason to fear that it will prove to be the old story the glutting of a critical market with an inferior and unsaleable > article. Tbie bitter lesson of last season is likely to be repeated, and squatters will-again have to mourn the sure consequences of carelessness and folly. Knowiug what we now know of the require ments of the home markets, how many of the squatters of this district are there who can hear the news of a fall in wool with anything likeequanimity ? This Season, as last, tho brunt o...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, . l'Yiday Evening. The fall of rain, welcomed so joyously by all, has been followed by a fall of a much less pleasant character--a fall in wool. The tefeSiypA}6 nemfram England gives no par ticular# of this melancholy event, but, we fancy, the fall will be found to be confined to the-inferiorsorts. Jn any case, we are in a. better position to hear these bad tidings than , we might Have been. The great misfortune of the year fuis been overcome, and those who have survived the'drought will 'not, it is to be hoped, collapse under the affliction of a fall in price, avail of twopence. ' ' * Our recommendation to the overstocked, to meet the viewsof the under-stocked and non stocked, proves to have been well-timed. It will be'agreed that those squatters having j store sheep to sell acted unwisely in holding out for unobtainable prices. The double op portunity of a rising wool-market and a sud den change from bad to good in squatting \ prospects is not like...
