NEW ABATTOIRS, HOMEBUSH BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
A Panoramic View of the New Abattoirs-The Buildings So Far Erected. NEW ABATTOIRS, HOMEBUSH BAY. FOR the past two years, the building of the new abat toirs has been in progress at Homebush Bay, ..and it; -will not be completed for the best part of another twelve months. , The necessity of removing the abattoirs from Glebe Island was long ago re Historic Landmark on the Abattoir Site-a residence Governor in the convict times. ?cognised, and lience the activity at Homebush Bay, on the shores of ?\vhicli the. new establishments fire be ing erected, and very extensive they are, as may be judged by the follow-. ing list, which represents only half of what they are eventually destined to lie.

THE TELL-TALE BACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
THE TELL-TALE BACK. A beauty specialist whose eyes are always on the fashions, in order that she may bring licr clients into line with the requirements of the dress makers, says that the back is a tell tale. It blurts out the secret of age, and that more surely than grey hairs and wrinkles. So the woman who means to look as young as she feels must take pains to keep the back of her neck from gaining lumpiness, and the shoulders from becoming round. One of the exercises for round shoul ders upon which she insists is very simple and etlicacious. It consists merely in pushing back the arms un til the elbows come as near meeting as possible, and in doing so frequent ly whilst standing upright. Another form of treatment for the lump just below the back of the neck is a rough towel slightly moistened with hot water, and drawn backwards and for wards across the lump until the skin glows. It must be pursued every morning without fail, but not with such vehemence as to bruise the skin.

Sculling. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Sculling. The Parramatta Hundred, the big annual sculling handicap, enticed a huge crowd to the Parramatta River on Saturday afternoon, when the four heats were contested. As predicted in our last issue, Dick Arnst and iiarry Pearce were both handicapped right out of the race, and neither qualified for the final, which is scheduled for to-morrow. The best performance was put up by W. Fogwell, the Northern Rivers sculler, who brilliantly Avon his heat from the 18 sees. mark. W. Rapsley, of Newcastle, a mag nificently proportioned athlete, and a most promising sculler, shaped nicely, and won from the 83 seconds' mark in the first heat, with Tlieo Towns (48 sees.), second; and George Day (18 sees.), a close third. Norman Towns (44 sees.), annexed the second lieat from W. West (78 sees.) and S. McLean (75 sees.). The finish was close, and Jack Arnst, who finished fast, just failed to qualify for the final, by running fourth. F. S. Hagney (18 sees.), the ex cyclist, showed excellent judg...
Boxing. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Boxing. C'olin Bell, the big, good-natured boxer from Moree, was beaten on points by Jack Howard, at the Sta dium on Saturday night last. Bell, who was "found" by Larry Foley, and hailed by the veteran as a coming world-beater, did not make the show ing expected of him. He scaled near ly two stone more than Howard, al though the weights were announced, "Bell 12.12 and Howard 11.11." Bell weighed 13.7, if he weighed an ounce. The Moree man will never make a champion. It is doubtful whether he will develop into a good second-rater even. He lacks dash, and is on the defensive all the while. During al most the whole of the 20 rounds he was on the defensive. Had he "wad ed" into Howard, as a man with such a big advantage should have done, Colin Bell would have won. Had the Moree man been quick enough to take advantage of several good openings he would have knocked Howard out. On one occasion Bell landed a heavy punch on Howard's jaw, and the lat ter stood in the middle of the ring dazed,...

I think I will communicate with the dairy farmers through the press of that district, drawing their attention to the need of organisation to meet the coming trouble, and whether it would serve their interests better to throw in their lot with the F. & S. Association, which is an organised body, having its own newspaper, "The Land," and the necessary machinery and organisation (without any great expense) to serve them in the pre sent juncture, instead of forming; small unions in every localitj', which would carry little ...

Association Doings R.W.U. CLAIMS ONE MILLION POUNDS INCREASE IN WAGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
k R.W.U, CLAIMS ONE MILLION POUNDS INCREASE IN WAGES. "The Rural Workers' Gazette" for the current month addresses a "word" to rural workers as follows:-"Now that registration has been granted under the Federal Arbitration Act, it should be the duty of every rural worker to join the union, so as to secure the benefits to be gained by organisation. It has frequently been pointed out that it is the intention of the union to apply to the Court for an award early next year. It may be information for work ers to know that unless they are members of the union they cannot be included in any award the Court may make. Now is the opportunity for them to join; why wait for an or ganiser to call on them ? It is for their own benefit they become mem bers. There are over 80,000 em ployees (wage earners), engaged in connection with agricultural, viticul tural, fruit growing, and dairying in dustries of the Commonwealth, and if the moderate rates asked for by the union are accepted by the Court as ...

DESTRUCTION OF BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
DESTRUCTION OF BIRDS. "Pastpralist" writes:-I notice an article-in'your journal of 10 th inst,, in reference to the destruction of birds with phosphorus poisoning. For the benefit of your readers, and to those who are most interested, I can posi tively assure you there are very few birds poisoned in this manner. I have \ised all kinds of poisons, mixed with pollard fo? the-past 25 years, and have not seen one dead bird of any description. The birds will not take to the poisoned pollard. I admit the poisoned wheat is very destructive on birds, wheat being their natural ? food. Of course, the trapper will naturally try to put down phosphorus poisoning for his own benefit. They expect a landowner to feed the rab bits throughout the year, and allow them to trap the paddock, and often ask 10s to £1 per week bonus, apart from having the skins and carcases, as the cage may be; also free grass for their horses, and after taking the rough edge oil", they move out, and allow the remainder to ...
Mayors Not Re-Elected. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Mayors Not Re-Elected. A question has been raised in some of the suburbs, as to who should have presided, at the meeting of the council for the election of mayor to fill the period between the 1st and 15th February, where the Mayor for 1910 had not been re-elected an alderman OJI the 28tli February. It is contend ed that there is no one, authorised to preside. This proposition is ab surd, and there is nothing in the con tention, for the Ordinance (No. 1, 48a) clearly lays it down that-"If the mayor be absent, a chairman elected by the aldermen present, shall take the chair." Certainly the mayor was absent in all those cases.
