Thero ls no douht as to tho possibility of produc- ing some such hens if one can give most ot his time to the caro ol' his poultry; but even tiie poultry ex- perts have not sueci oded in producing nay strain of fowls that will give so high a record for the entire Hock, or any considerable part of it, with hoc''s as large as those found on the avoi.ige farm.

Branxholm Railway [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 12 August 1911

Branxholm Railway In our last issue we suggested an alteration of the present service by which a morning train available from each end, and which would enable residents of the Coast to visit Laun- ceston with a loss of only two days instead of three. It would not be very clear how this could be done without putting on the second train or else doing away with one on the other section, but in this issue we explain this. The morning train under our proposal would leave Branxholm at 7 am passing Scotts- dale about 8. 50 and reaching Laun- ceston about 12. 15 pm while in the other direction we would propose to leave Launceston at 7 30 am reach- ing Scottsdale about ll am, and Branxholm at 1 pm. In order to maintain the present double service on the Launceston to Scottsdale section we would suggest that the second train should leave Scottsdale at 12 30. and teach Launceston at 4 pm and start on the return journey about 5 l m or a little later.
