FARM AND FIELD Manures for Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 2 October 1908

FARM AND FIELD Manures for Crops. f The knowledge that "will lead to the employment of suitable manures for. growing cropg has yet to bo gathered by the majority of farmers. In the coursc of an Interesting paper on this subject, CMr R W. Hutchinson, a South Austra lian inrmer, recently stated that many 'farmers and gardeners copied their neighbors* methods, without knowing the why or the wherofore of the system. This should not be. It was tho duty of every farmer and gardener to know something of tho chemical constituents of manures and plants. When phos phates were first ubed in South Austra lia people ridiculed the idea, but the re sults of experiments had proved tho value of this fertiliser. The producer should go hand in hand with the scien tific man; the former could learn a lot £rom the scientist, while the latterwas also partly, dopendent on the practical man. When selecting a manure for any crop ho (Mr Hutchinson) ascertained the chemical properties of the plants, and then c...

IMMIGRANT FARM-HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 2 October 1908

IMMIGRANT FARM-HANDS. IT is 110 doubt very gratifying to all who are interested in seeing Australia peopled by a white nation to know that the persons whom the Agent General for New South Wales is select ing as immigrants are settling down to the conditions existing in this State, and in almost every caso obtain ing1 high praise from the farmers and pastoralists to whom they are sent by the Intelligence Department oil arrival. Not only are they proving themselves to be the right class of immigrant both as regards ability and physical condition as farm labourers, but com munications received at the Depart ment indicate that they are a thrifty lot, and are looking forward to getting a place for themselves. Several who had capital at their disposal have already purchased farms and arc get ting other immigrants to work for them, and so are fulfilling the hopes of the most ardent supporters of the' Immigration Policy. During the visit of our American cousins, a number of those who obtain...

BOON TO MUNICIPALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 2 October 1908

BOON TO MUNICIPALITIES. In the "Triumph" Patent Sanitary Pan, Shown and explained to visuo.s I with a frequency that attested the . complete faith of the inventors in their handiwork, our Municipal auth- | oritics were afforded a useful object lesson in the strides that have been made, in improved Sewerage applian ces. . The removal of night-so,il is an ever-present problem with our Muni cipalities. The old system stands, condemned for its costliness, danger, .and general unsatisfactory" character. To-day the air-tight pan is all the vogue. It can be -oipcratcd during the day without the least offence; the Contractor can work 8 or 9 hours in- j stead of 5 or 6 under the old system, ' and the work can be-made a revenue producer instead of entailing loss upon the Municipality.

No 0110 can answer this question to tho satisfac tion of all inquirers. So many factors have to bo considered that each indi vidual's special qualifications must bo fully weighed and an answer given which will apply to hiscaso and his alone. There aro many men who have been brought up in the environments , of a largo city, mon who know absolu- I toly nothing about tlfo~ life which the farmer loads, and yet wish to turn » thoir brains and money into a channel . which they trust will lead them into j rural possessions-a very risky pro- j cecding unless supported by the moat , mature consideration.

THE CLAVIOLA. PALING'S GREAT EXHIBIT. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 2 October 1908

. THE CLAVIOLA. PALING'S GREAT EXHIBIT. The intimation that the wonderful Claviola, attached to one of (i Pa ling's" magnificent ''Becfostein Grand" pianos, would be the. chief attraction at an afternoon recital was respon? sible, on the second day, for a big muster oT 'visitors at the Eastern end of the groat hall. With unconcealed delight they listened to the, extra ordinary beautiful and even harmony, the perfect time and expression,' produced by tills unique , appliance, which, it is^ said, can be operated by a mere novice in connection witli the most classical themes. Ready en dorsement may be accorded to the bold statement that the Claviola has reached an ideal unapproached by any other .piano-player, for it firings perfectly artistic and musicianly .play ing -witmn the rcacli of all."
