Leary, a butcher, was, taken from here to Molong hospital, suffering with what was supposed to be blood poisoning, but on examination ,U was found that Mr Leary was suffering from anthrax.

AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL NOTES. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND WHEAT GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912
AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL NOTES. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND (Issued, by the Department of Agriculture). WHEAT GROWING. In the January number of the "Agricultural i Gazette," Departmental officers give some very useful and practical information concerning the production of wheat. The manager, Bathurst State Farm (Mr Peacock), refers to the production of pure seed-wheat and its improvement. Much has been done in improvement. Much has been done in improving the yielding powers of wheat by the Department, but intelligent farmers should continue the work of improvement. They should be enabled to do this to a greater extent than is possible at the Government institutions. Mr Peacock points out that while the Department has produced, as part of its business ,new varieties of wheat,, and has tested such, the adaptation of these varieties to a farmer's local conditions, and the further improvement of the varieties by selection, should be the farmer's business. The Department is in a posit...
THE HALL MARK OF EXCELLENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912
THE HALL MARK OF EXCELLENCE. ! Whenever we purchase gold or sil\x=req-\ j ver ware we look very carefully for the, hall mark, to satisfy ourselves i that the goods we' are purchasing are of the uality which they are represented to be. In most branches of manufacture theer is some firm whose name stands out pre-eminent, and whose manufactures, by general acknowledgment, are accepted as the hall mark of excellence. For instance, in cream separators, the "Alfa-Laval" stands out pre-eminently above all others. When a person uses an "Alfa-Laval" machine he knows full well that he is on a good wicket; he knows that consideration of cost is never allowed to influence the "Alfa-Laval" Company, but that everything which money can .procure, and knowledge, brains, and experience suggest, is all borught to bear on the manufacture of the "Alfa-Laval" Machines, with the result that the modern "Alfa\x=req-\ Laval" Separators considerably exceed one and a quarter million. This is a most eloquent an...
ERRORS IN DRENCHING ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912
ERRORS IN DRENCHING ANIMALS. Stockowners complain that, although they follow the departmental directions in preparing and administering drenches to animals, they experience more losses than should occur. Mr Max Henry, M.R.C.V.S., of the Stock Department, in an article in the January number of the "Agricultural Gazette," directs attention to the matter. He says that no drench is recommended that has not been put through the practical test, and it is difficult to understand why bad results should supervene. Generally, one is inclined to attribute the cause to unintentional over-doing, dosing too hurriedly, and so causing choking, to undissolved particles of arsenic being given in the drench, and so on. Some recent cases reported, however, suggest grave errors in the quantity of the drug being administered, on account of the varied weights and measures r in common use. In one instance the Department recommended that so many grains of arsenic should go to a pint of water. In mixing it, ...
GOOLAGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912
GOOLAGONG. (From Our Own Correspondeat). Master James Bartley, who has been an inmate of the Cowra hospital for some time, is so far recovered as to be expected home on Sunday. The weather has been very dry, and oppressively hot. Both water and grass are scarce. The atmosphere is full o£ smoke, from bush fires, which are blazing not too many miles from here. Mr W. Hodge has had the misfortune to lose his valuable trotter and two other horses from eating wheat. Mr Edward Culgan underwent "an operation at Grenfell on Tuesday for hydatids. Mrs Alderson went to Orange recently, owing to ill-health, and is now reported to be much better. Some of the farmers have started to plough, and it is expected th'at a good deal of ground will be turned over. One of the new buildings Mr Bo\x=req-\ land is erecting is now almost completed. Mrs M'Inerny, who has been away on a visit to Orange, returned this week. Mr Proctor and family are leaving the district next week.

District News EUGOWRA. GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912
District. News EM8WW. (From Our Representative). GENERAL. A contingent of pigeon shooters, comprising Messrs \V. W. Myring and L. Laneyrie, after competing in the shooting events at Forbes on Anniversary Day with fair success, journeyed, in company with a Forbes contingent, to Bathurst, where they again competed with further success. After the open events were completed, a challenge match was arranged between Forbes-Eugowra and Bathurst, and resulted in a win for the local boys by 3 birds. This is a meritorious win on the part of our shooters, as Bathurst were reputed to have never lost a match formerly in the hundred or more competed in over a space of many years. Mr J. J. Sheehy, auctioneer and commission agent, reports the sale of Mr M. O'Dea's Meadowbank property to Mr G. W. Armstrong, of Cranbury, at a satisfactory figure.

THE STRIKE. IPSWICH RAILWAY MEN RESUME. Brisbane, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912
THE STRIKE. IPSWICH RAILWAY MEN RESUME; Brisbane, Thursday. The Minister for Railways states that 1314 of the men employed at the railway workshops at Ipswich have gone back to work. The number mentioned constitutes practically the whole stall of the workshops. , The Trades Hall declares it is undismayed by the news from Ipswich. Mr Coyne, leader of the strike committee, said it was immaterial whel tlier the Ipswich men came out in th* first place, as a big percentage of them were non-unionists. Trams are running in the principal streets more frequently, but it is reported from a reliable source that the supply at the power house is sufficient only for about eight weeks. The shops are open in great numbers, but trade is slack. Mr Badger, the tramway manager, stated to-day that SO cars are running. He is confident of success; and says he has plenty of coal. Tie has received numerous • applications' for employment. None of the wharf-laborers .arc working, ,and everything is quiet abou...
THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912
THE WEATHER. The thermometer at the Post Office is the truest record of sun-heat, because it is a double-louvred box, placed out in the open sun. . Every post office where records are supplied to the Federal Government is furnished with the same type of box, and that box is supposed to be, and, awaiting contradiction, is ptocea in the'sun without any shade to obscure it. The post office thermometer during the past week has been; consistently registering over lOOdeg. Fah., and the heat lias been accompanied by an extraordinary humidity in the atmo\x=req-\ phere. There was a culmination on Wednesday, but it only resulted in a violent dust-storm. There was no thunderstorm to clear the air, and only six points of rain fell—not enough to lay the dust. The shopkeepers in town have been doing double-time in dusting, and the gene\x=req-\ feeling of those who have to keep shop windows clean is that dust\x=req-\ storms are . -• .
