ABOLITION OF THE P.P. BOARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
ABOLITION OF THE P.P. BOARDS. A report lias been circulated through the country press to the effect that the Government has decided to take definite steps shortly to abolish the pastures protection boards, and hand their powers to the shire councils. That the attitude of the Government points in that direction is well known, but so far nothing definite has been decided. Speaking recently, the Minister for Agriculture, Mr Trefle, said that he was.considering the matter of abolishing the boards in the eastern and central divisions, delegating certain portions of their duties to the shire councils, and possibly bringing the stock inspectors under the control of the department, but nothing was yet determined. He had not yet arrived at the stage when he was prepared to submit a scheme to the Executive Council. Mr Trefle added that the boards would not be abolished in the western division.
VETERINARY SGIENGE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
VETERINARY SGIENGE. (From the "Sydney Morning Herald," 7/2/12). Messrs William Cooper and Nephews' donation of £ 100 . to the Sydney University for a scholarship in veterinary science ■ is an example that should commend itself to the leading men in our pastoral and agricultural world. There can be no dispute as to the enormous value of veterinary knowledge in a country where the primary -industries are by far the most imporatnt. The establishment of a system of efficient veterinary instruction was for many years demanded by the ■ stocltowners of the State, who found the want of it, faced as they were by continual loss which knowledge would either avert" or considerably moderate. The step taken by the' University meets that demand, and in no more patriotic way could the leading stockowners of this State show their appreciation than by assisting with endowments. We have a large number of • men who have accrued wealth in the live stock industry, directly and indirectly, and it is not o...

IMITATION IS THE SINCEREST FOEM OF FLATTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
IMITATION IS THE SINCEREST POEM OF FLATTERY. If imitation is really the sincerest form-of flattery, then certainly there has been nothing on the face of this earth more, subject to flattery than the "A1 fa-Laval'' Cream Separators. Nearly all the other cream separators in the world (and. their number is legion) are but poor imitations of older types of "Alfa-Laval" Machines. Froiu time to time, as tlie "Alfa\x=req-\ Laval" Company make improvements in their machines, they of course cease to make the older patterns; these discarded features of the .older "All'a-Laval" Machines are at once proudly copied by makers of other cream separators, and they advertise these machines "As good as the 'Alfa\x=req-\ Laval'," and so on; but the race is a sorry one, the picture of the other cream scparatorsstrying to keep pace ■ with the "Alfa-Laval" is like a little boy trying to keep pace with liis big brother; one by one these • other cream separators drop-out of the race, and nothing more is hea...

TEMORA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
TEMORA.. There was not a point of rain fell (during' January this year. It is 29 years since such' a thing happened before, although for'several years the fall (luring the. first month only l'eacli'ed from 7 to"5.0 points. : Mr R. .Tones, who is tailing Mr Colin' Smith's place as postmaster at the Temora railway station, is an all-round sport, and. should become extremely popular here. There is:/a trejnendous traffic along the Wyalong and Barellan lines now. On Monday there was quite an exodus of local and district residents by the evening's mail train. ■ 'A.t the last Ariah Park Farmers and Settlers' meeting, Mr J. Allen moved that this branch emphatically protest against the income tax provisions being extended to men engaged in agricultural pursuits, more particularly to share farmers, and deplores the fact that the exemption has been reduced from £ l'OOO to £ 300 on all income raised through personal exertion. The motion was carried. , Mr H. G. Elrington, of "Mountain View," thi...

COWRA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
COWRA. The ceremony of laying: the foundation stone of. the new Presbyterian Church at Cowra passed off successfully. Rev. J. A. Craigen,. of Gren fell (Interim^ Moderator) presided; two stones were "well and faithfully laid"'by Mrs I. Sloane, of Cowra, and Dr. Glouston, of Sydney; and the Rev. J. C. M'Donald, of Orange, delivered an able address. Donations of £1G0 were laid upon the stones, and some ■£ 1000 has been promised. A Scotch concert was held at night, which was also a great success, several Sydney artists assisting (including two Highland jripers). : On Thursday last a thunderstorm passed 'over the town, and although it was only of a few minutes, it did .a tremendous lot of damage. Old residents state that never in the history of-Cowra has such'a'storm been, experienced. The velocity of the .wind was terrific, and rain and hail fell in torrents. Many, buildings were unroofed, and the driving rain beat into the houses.
GERMINATION OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
GERMINATION OF WHEAT. A question of vital importance to wheat-growers is the proper germination of the seed when it is sown. In last month's "Agricultural Gazette" Inspector Reynolds discusses the matter, and farmers would profit by taking notice of his remarks. The chief cause of grain not«ger\x=req-\ minating, the Inspector points out, is due to some injury it receives. This injury may be caused while the grain is still in the ear, by fungoid infection,' or by low temperature. Farmers, however, generally reject disease-infected wheat for seed purposes, so that phase of the question need not be discussed. DAMAGE BY-FROSTS.' Sometimes light rain falls late in the afternoon or evening, leaving a clear sky before the dawn. At times white frosts are noticed the following morning. If such conditions occur when the grain is in the ear a portion of it will certainly be damaged by frost. Examination with a low-power microscope will show that the skin of the grain is often cracked, and in a...
SHEEP ON NYNGAN STATE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
SHEEP ON NYNGAN STATE FARM. During the year a very fine lot of merino ewes,and a few fine stud merino rams were purchased by Mr W. J.; Mathews, Sheep and Wool Expert of the Department, for the purpose of starting a pure merino flock of a suitable type for the district. "These sheep , have large frames, and wool with greath'length of staple. About 350 of these ewes averaged, for a twelve months' growth, 131b of wool each. Up to the present the Nyngan district has been regarded wholly as pastoral; tout with the ad vent of more scientific .methods of culture, and more suitable varieties of crops, agriculture can be brought to greatly assist the pastoral industry. In this way the living area may be considerably reduced, thus making room for a much larger population. With this object in view, the Nyngan Demonstration Farm was established. If it can be shown that a family can be maintained comfortably on a lesser area than at present by minim\x=req-\ ising the effects of drought through m...
KEEP SMILING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
KEEP SMILING. Teacher: "Now, Tommy, what is a hypocrite?" Tommy: "A boy that comes to school with a smile on his face." Clinton: "Can you get in. at nights without waking your wife?" Clubman: "No; but I expect to be able to soon. I'm taking lessons of a burglar." By special permission the lady visitor was being shown over the prison. And she was most anxious that the light of her presence should shine brightly and do good. In one cell she came across a burglar, who was serving several years. Chatting with him, she perceived that he was not wholly lost to the good things of life. Wherefore she set to work to reform him. "And now," she said towards the close, "have you any plans for the future on the expiration of your sentence?" Over the bad burglar's face came / a joyous smile. "Oh, yes, m'm!" he answered hopefully. "I've already got the plans of two hanks, a jeweller's shop, and a post office." Along the street rushed the infuriated mob of strikers. Various missiles were hurtling t...
