The quality was only moc dTa ,tli. rangngg from middling to useful descriptions of crossbreds, with only occasional pens of prime wethers distributed through the yards. Tho supply was only about equal to iocal recuircements, and afl the best sheep were quickly snapped up in the private sales. Prices for best wethers where nearly 1/ per head in advance of last week's rates. The middling descriptions that remainca over ior auction met with fair competition at slightly advanc ed rates, but the increase was not nearly so pronounced as for the best sheep. Practically all the yarding was cleared ex cept a few odd lots of nondescript and aged store sheep. Competition from the few out siders present for this class of sheep was again dull, and there was no improwvement in the lots...

BALLENDELLA. 13th February. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
BALLENDEL.LA. 13th February. Settler Vickers, who has grown some of the best Hunter River lucerne cro is in the district, has just trussed a fine lot of Arabian lucerne, for which there is a keen local demand for the feedini of stock. The Arabian fodder seems to have much less stalk than the I-hiunter River variety, and is of a !i~glhter color of leaf. Mr. Vickers gct over 200 trusses of this lucerne from 10 acres, of which area only G6 could be pro-: perly irrigated. Messrs. W. G. Hart and J. Robins secured a supply of the fodder, the latter for a change of diet for his string of . hunters The feeding of settlers' lucerne blocks by flocks of sheep is likely to result in many of the settlers going short of fodder in the ,intcr, besides having their paddock.s spoilt througli the close nibbling of the sheep Grazing of lucerne was only suggest ed as a temporary money-winner, but z:ttlcrs have done so well at fattening, and ta:lking themn into their lucerne paddoclis at :1 (charge of 3½...

A USEFUL BELT FOR A BABY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
A UJSE;FPU I 3ELT FOR A BABY. A Praetical 'Idea.--One of tho most use fultgifts f4or th]e small child who canot walk, or who is only beginning . to toddle. i a belt from which some of his or her toys can be'.su1spended. Everybody knows the erranll child's facility in dropping anything *gi.en to him; and the piercing howvl which rc(ults when the loss is discovered. Well, -a elt of tile sort I am describing to you keeops the child's toys always within reachli. To make the belt, a broad ]piece of satin rilbon is needed, as well as narrower satin rilbbon. The broad ribbon is folded in two, and the edges sewn together for a distanc6 long enough to go right round the waist. The ends are left wide so that they can be tied in a pretty bow at the back. From the front of the belt hang threeo hbands of narrower satin ribbon, to which the varic. ous toys are either sewn or tied. It only takes. a few minutes to chamigo the toys when a change is needed, and the belt; re rnains a pernetual joy.

WYCHEPROOF. 13th February. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
WYCHEPROOF. 13th February. -. Th. apparent singling out of a small number of handholders within the Wyche. proof shire for prosecution under the Thistle Act has aroused a. great deal oe comment. Nine landholders were called upon to ap pdar at the loca1 Police Court, before Messrs. Pennefather, P.M., and J. J. Ryan, T.P. During the hearing of the cases the point was raised as to whether it was too late to cut thistles after the inspector's last inspection (23rd December). Owing to the early harvest farmers left thistle de. straction until near the end of the year, consequently in some cases it was shown that a good deal of cutting had been done after the inspector's visit. Others com plained that men x ere hard to secure about 'hhrvest time for thistle cutting, althouagh as much as 10/ per day was offered. Fines were imposed as follows:-J. White, X£10, with £1/3/6 costs; J. .Hetherington, £5, '.with £1/3/16 costs; J. Manson, .£5, with .£1/ :8/(. costs and. conviction suspended; John ...

WEDDERBURN. 12th February. Walter Lemon and his brot·her Robert, accompanied several other sports in M?orecroft's motor car to Lake Bulpke-on Wediticsday. Walter was carrying a loaded gun, which accidentally exploded, the charge carrying away the flesh from the palm of his hand, and lodging a few pel lets in the neck and face of Robert.

A DAINTY FROCK. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
A DIAINTY FROCK. From Sale riemnants.-Very charming little frockls may be made for children out of short sale remnants of washing fabrics. Now in all probability the children.'s frocks have lost their pristine freshness after months of wear and repeated washings, so .it is rather a good plan to look out for a couple of these short lengths, and to make them up into a smart little frock before settihg out upon the holiday trip. The frock is sure to be very useful. I saw a delightful dress a couple of days ago made from two sale remnants of washfng crepe -one plain white and the other white pat terned with pink roses. The bodice was made chiefly of the white crepe, and was cut out in a very deep . V at the neck. Above this V came a plain vest of the pat terned material, which was also cut out in a small V at the neck, and .edged by a little pleated frill of net. The sleeves were made of thle patterned fabric, but were crossed by a strip of the plain stuff, which was cut in one with the...
AT ROCHESTER. Rochester, 11th February. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
.AT ROCHESTER. Rochester, 11th February. Tho! duck scason opened at Rlocbstcr this mornlin, and was one of the worst opening days oxperienced here for many years. Not only were the birds very scarce, but they were exceedingly wild. Large numbers of shooters visited Lake Cooper, and though there were a good many birds on the lake, very few of the sportsmen, succeeded in bagging any game. For some weeks illicit shooting has been carried on at the head of the lkke. and therefore the birds were very shy. Only those who had boats were in any way successful. The swamps round the district all had their quota of sports men, but they yielded poor sport. Top Creek, which had a mob of 20, wood duck lidst-..week, was shot over yesterday even 'ing befbre the opening, and as a conse ouence the dozen or so shooters who visited that pDnulai_. resort met with no success, seven men. accounting for one wood duck only.. Other -stamps, such as M'Curry's and M'Naui, ht s;'aso proved a failure, although i...
AT MACORNA. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
AT MACOIBNA. (Bl' Our Representativd,) TIiP opening of the season in the Macorna district was not as successful as in former years. and owing to the ducks being dis turbed on the Johnson and Rowan Swamps before tile openiug day, game was not too plentiful. The host bags at these resorts were secured by Messrs. Jones and Roper's party, from Episom, and Mr. Ardath. At M'Donald's Swamp game was also scarce, Cappecr and party, from Raywood, securing the best bag. On the Tang T'ang there was only ;a small number of shcoters for o,·eninm day, and tihe sport was 12p1or. The small bas aire attributed to time scarcity of water and the illegal shooting of game which occurred in the close season.
DUCK SHOOTING SEASON. BIRDS NOT TOO PLENTIFUL. ILLEGAL SHOOTING RIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
DUCK. SHOOTI NGsEASOn, BIaRDS NOT 'TOO PLENTIFUL, ILLEGAL SHOOTING RIF?. The dry weather experienced this sum mer has not been favorable to the diick sea sL'n, which opened on Wednesdit h1at.; Water is scarcer than usual, and glimi consequently more difcult to find. An other disadvantage for sportsmen was the timid state in whiich the birds w'ere found. Great difficulty was experienced in getting within range of the game, and shooters came to the conclusion that there had been a good deal of shooting going on before the season opened. It might be pointed out at the same time, however, that the sea son opened in New South WVales on the 1st inst., and the ducks. which were driven acrosq the border were well warned of tl;he designs of all persons prowling round their domains. Thile sport was indulged in by nutlmel'ous parties, who found that the biacing air of the cool niiht provided them with plenty of energy for the fray, and there was general activity at the camps when the hnur for ...
