Just because I had sufficient courage to tell the wo men what I thought of them. Ono. lady even wont so far as to quote Shakespeare, and wondered if I could read, all of which goes to show how vindictive a woman can be when she is 'narked.' If the present day women ?were built of the same stuff as our mothers and grandmothers, the div orce courts would not be patronised to the extent they are now, and there would be more happy homes. Wo leuu was made to be a helpmate to man, and the best way for her to do that is to confine her attention to the house and strive to make that as c. mfortable ns possible for , her hus Innd and children, instead of alway...

The Problem of Race [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 16 March 1925
The Problem of Race The Third International does not draw tho color lino-*-' A 11 men are bro thers.' The -uHtralian -&-nnhiunlHts ni'i: begging the question when they say; 'The only danger is an economic one.' They say : 'If the colored races came, here, 111 large numbers they, would lower our standard of living. The dark races, would und^rlive us.' ] If a large number of white men come here faster than -expanc?:r~ industries could absorb them, the. ev.v,.iOinic dan ger would be the same.

Wages and hours -of 'labour are fixed by law. ,or by mutual agreement or collective bargaining ,and the employ er is compelled to pay the same, wage whether the employee is black or white. -Thus the economic danger . is past, but the racial danger is ever present.

Poultry PREPARATIONS FOR A SHOW. How to Wash a White Bird. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 16 March 1925
Poultry PREPARATIONS FOR A SHOW. How to Wash a White Bird. The poor condition in which many of the utility birds are shown is a subject of comment at all shows where utility classes are provided, 'and never more so than at the two big met ropolitan shows (writes the Poultry Expert of the Department of Agricul ture). This applies to all breeds, more or less, but particularly to White Leghorns, either because they have not been washed or because they have been' badly washed. In many cases bad washing is worse than no washing at all — the result of lack of experience and want of knowledge on the part of the owner. To wash a bird plenty of warm wa- j ter and towels and thre.e large bath j tubs should be provided, and a coop j that is lined with clean crash or some such material. This coop should be placed either in the sun or before a stove, so that the bird' can be put into ? it to dry- If it is in - the sun, care should be taken to protect the white lobes, or they will be scalded, and...

According to returns furnished by the stock inspectors to the various pastures protection boards in New South Wales, the sheep figures .im proved by over 4,000,000 during 1924.

It is explained that the figures for the year just closed are estimated , totals only, and that when the final returns are available the position may be even better.
