A Bathurstian for Bisley. A SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Daily Argus — 26 January 1909
A Bathurstidn for Bisley. A SUGGESTION. (By 'Outsider.' The time for the holding of the rifle men's annual carnival at Bisley is not too far off for one to make some remarks that suggest themselves, in: view of the fact that the sending of a team to repre sent the Commonwealth has been effec tively blocked by the apathy of the., Federal authorities. It is. curious to note that whereas the Federal Ministers compute an increased military strength on the increase of members of Rifle (JIuds ana t^aaets, very muc cwuuuia^c ment is offered— in return for the interest displayed— by the same authorities. It has occurred to the writer that, hiving in Bathurst a Rifle Club that the Englishmen deemed, and proved, worthy of their best marksmanship, and one which numbers amongst its members one of the world's best riflemen, that possibly there might be ^Sufficient en thusiasm in the matter of the advertise ment of Bathurst left to make the idea ol a subscription' ^ send the best rifleman in otir...

M.) at length promised him: that any further offence .would lead to six months In ^Bathurst gaol.

METHOD OF PAYMENT FOR CREAM. .: Tho ? attention of the ' Department '? of Agriculture has been drawn'by its dairy inspectors to tho. 'Pernicious system of payment for cream adopted.' -by some butter factories. The-^practico is to reduce tho test of suppliers' cream by 2 or 3 per cent.,^and' then- compute, f rom tho chart issued by ' the Government Dairy Expert, tlio quantity of butter to be paid for on the lower basis. A good price is then paid on. the 'smaller quan tity, thus making it appear to tihe dairy farmers: that thoiiv'cream is . first-class, whereas a .second,?, class price is really obtained for the imtter.' - ? For example, 20001b. butter liny b'e manufactured on a certain day, 'yet only l,S501b. would bw paid for, 'tliat ' being the quantity produced according' to the chart, i.e., after deducting the two or three per ccnt. already referred to. ? -A high price is however, , given 'for'-the latter quan tity, so that, 'although' tho suppliers may not suffer much pecuniary ...
