Are Bees a Nuisance? [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Are Bees a Nuisance ? A letter was received by the Dubbo Council from the foreman of works, stating that he wished to draw the attention of the council to the nuis ance caused by bees to the brick layers and others employed at the building in the course of erection at the corner of Darling and Cobborah streets. He wrote, he said, in the interests of his fellow-workmen as well as himself. Should they be stung they would lose time, and, therefore, part 01 their wages. He might as well add, he also wrote, that a dog is regarded as a nuisance, and an owner is liable if the canine bites anyone. Dogs were pests, so were bees, in the swarms which infested the works. If the inspector of nuis ancs were to go up there he would be able to see what annoyance the insects were. On receipt of the letter the clerk wrote to the Local Government Asso ciation for an opinion. This was to the eii'ect that no provision was made for declaring bees a nuisance unless the hives were insanitary. The letter wa...
Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Correspondence. In a report of the Coolamon Shire Council in a local paper we read : " Towards the conclusion Councillors Lyndon and Doubleday had another ' brush.' The latter inquired if coun cillors held the privilege of handing correspondence across the table to the clerk. On looking up the ordin ance a doubtful,,light was-thrown on the practice. The letter was returned and Councillor Lyndon read it, and before doing so accused Councillor Doubleday of taking fine points. The communication was from Mr. David Boyd, Afton Ariah, in reference to a road approaciiing Beckom Railway Station." To our mind the ordinance is very clear on the subject. Ordinance No. 1, 16, says : " All correspondence with the council shall be addressed to the clerk and submitted to the council. No letter addressed to the council shall be presented or read by any councillor." No reasoning should be necessary to convince anyone uiat the directions contained in the ordin ance were not carried out. The letter Av...
Confirming the Rate. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Confirming the Rate. At the last meeting of the Liver pool Plains Shire Council the motion fixing the rate for this year at Id. 'in the £ came up for confirmation. At the previous meeting the rate had been fixed at Id. in the £, after a proposed rate of l^d in the £ had been advertised. The motion fixing the rate at Id. in the £ was car ried at a meeting from which the president, who favored the l%d. rate to meet exceptional expenditure, was absent on shire business. Two coun cillors who voted for the Id. rate were absent when the rate came up for confirmation. Councillor Weakly moved that the rate of Id. in the £ be confirmed but the motion did not find a seconder. Councillors Peard and Porter, who favored the l^d. rate, declining to second the motion. The president, though favorable to the IVid. rate, seconded the motion so that the rate notices could be is sued. Councillor Potter moved, as an amendment, that the rate be l^U. in the £. The president said the position was a unique ...
FLORAL DECORATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
FLORAL DECORATION. At a recent Town Hall function the send-off to Dr. and Mrs. MacCor miclc-the beauty of the flowers was the theme of everybody's admiration. The two colors used were pink and glowing crimson, and they were massed in such taste and in such pro fusion that the scheme revealed be yond all question that simplicity in flower decorating is the great guide to success. One room, mantelpiece and all, was done with big pink lilies and chrysanthemums, while the other room in the Lady Mayoress's suite was similarly treated with crimson cactus dahlias. Autumn is an easy time for the floral decorator. For, truly, an embarrassment of riches is ofl'ered. But by sticking to the one-flower scheme the greatest triumphs will be gained. For a din ner party a big crystal bowl in the centre of the table, filled with cactus dahlias or chrysanthemums, makes the best centrepiece, and very few are the specimen glasses now allowed to get into the line of sight between one guest and another. F...
ON APPRO. THE "ON APPRO." ABUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
ON" APPRO. THE "ON APPRO." ABUSE. The big metropolitan houses who do a country order trade, often complain that they are sufferers from the "on approval" abuse. This applies particularly to drapery and kindred goods. Some, customers have an expensive blouse or hat sent them, which after two or three days' trial, they return as unsuitable. It is suggested that many wearers have no real intention of purchasing the goods, anu are un scrupulous enough to resort to tais device for obtaining some thing smart for the local show or races. Thus, a privilege extended to a bona-fide purchaser is abused. In the above cartoonlets an American artist has satirised the habit, suggesting the affixing, of a ticket, or an even more drastic remedy. * '
KNIVES AND FORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
KNIVES AND FORKS. To the young hostess, the placing of the various knives and forks re quired by tue social Metles and Per sians at a high-toned dinner party is often as much " wropped in mistry" as were Jeames de la vluche's ante cedents. Take, then, these few rules for the disposal of the cutlery. The general rule is three forks. The fork to be used first is on the outside. This is the fish fork ; then inside that is the meat fork, and inside that again either another meat fork or a salad fork. If, however, there is no fish, the fish fork is omitted, un the right side of the plate are the soup spoon, the fish knife, the roast meat knife, the soup spoon being on the outside, and if oysters are an hors d'oeuvres, a small oyster fork on the outsiue of the soup spoon. The spoons and forks for sweets and dessert are not placed on the table, but served round by the maid on the desert plates. For soup, the largest size spoon is used. Dessert spoons are often placeu for soup, but this is ...
Councils' Officials. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Councils' Officials. Monaro Sliire Council lias decided that the engineer's salary and equip ment allowance be increased to . £450 per annum from the date at which he commenced supervision duties with a motor cycle, and for such time as he performed such duties by motor cycle. Mr. G. D. Langley has been ap pointed shire clerk, of ±5ibbenluke. A decision delivered in the Coon amble Small Debts Court means a loss of £50 to Coonamble Municipal Council. It was the reserved deci sion on the point raised on behalf of one of the defendants, that the coun cil's claim for cost of emptying a buried cesspit must fail, as the work had not been authorised by resolution of the council. The point governed a number of other eases, the total amount involved being about £50.
HOW TO BE POPULAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
HOW TO BE POPULAR. In an old newspaper for women re cently I read the following quaint advice to girls on the way to attain popularity :-To begin, select a small scrap-book, make the cover as dainty as you please, clip all the articles you read in the papers and magazines on the subject of how to be popular, and paste them in your " Popular Book." Every morning read one of these articles, and try to live up lo it through the day. In the course of time you will have read and re read all these articles, and we all know practice makes perfect. The day will come when all the little secrets in your book will have be come part of your own popular self. As the roads within a 40 mile ra dius of the city arc in such bad or der, the Automobile Club of Australia has abandoned the idea of holding a reliability trial, and will probably promote a. gyrokfowp.. instead.
USING OLD EMBROIDERIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
USING OLD EMBROIDERIES. Besides being used as dress orna mentation, good pieces of old silk em broideries may be turned to account in many ways about the house. Jap anese and Chinese embroidery is much in request at present for making pretty things. Jap. kimonos and obes, Chinese mandarin robes and panels, are used to cover cushions, boxes, and pillows, and are stretched on trays, lamp mats, and other ar ticles which help to decorate the home. Tea cosies may be fashioned out of three pretty emoroideries, ana by using a little ingenuity a most artistic looking sewing case or jewel box may be fashioned out of a clioco late-box of cardboard or an Epsom salts box, with the aid of some thin gum and odd scraps of Oriental needlework.

CO-OPERATIVE MARKETING OF EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
CO-OPERATIVE MARKETING OF EtiGS. In reply to an inquiry made by the Barraganyatti branch respecting the co-operative marketing of eggs, the Department of Agriculture lias writ ten as follows : - " Co-operation is one of the fea tures of the Denmark agrarian popu lation, extending to even horse and cattle breeding societies, in fact, to every branch of produce, with the object of getting the utmost return from the soil. "In connection with poultry, there are two Breeders' Associations, witn from 5000 to 6000 members respec tively, with a membership fee of about 4s. per annum, whicn entitles them to a stamp and a fortnight journal. These societies have centres or circles, each having a collector, wlio goes round his district calling upon each member and collecting the eggs, for which he pays market price. Should any member send in eggs too small, crooked or soiled, he is fined, the number stamped on the eggs identifying the member. The eggs are then packed at the various centres and f...
Suing for Rates. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Suing for Rates. Ivyogle Shire Council v. Thomas Jones, farmer, Munmulgum, claim for £12 9s lOd rates due. It was ex plained that in the first two years' notices were served on Thos. James, (as that was the name said by the Grafton Land Board office of the man to be in possession. But the council finding it a mistake amended the notice and inserted the name Thomas Jones. The rate notices have never been returned. In last year's notice plaintiff included the arrears and sent it to Thomas Jones. The bench non-suited the council on the point. Application was made for defendants' expenses. A notice of assessment should have been served on the proper person, if only to give such a person the right of appeal. All his client had received was the summons. The bench was not in clined to grant expenses, as it was not the council's fault that the no tices were not served. For the de fence it was argued that the council should have discontinued the service when found that the notices were serve...
The Estimates. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
The Estimates. The estimates, when submitted to the Manning Shire Council on 6th March, were postponed in order to have a typewritten copy supplied to each councillor. At last meeting Cr. McKinnon said he was sure they all agreed that the proper course had been adopted. There were a number of things to which exception could be taken. The total expenditure amounted to about £20,000. He noticed in the estimates for administra tive expenses that the clerk's salary, which was now £225, was set down for £325. It was very nice for it to be anticipated in such a manner. It was a broad hint to the council. He found that the assistant clerk's salary at £S4 was not proposed to be increased. He considered he was one of the hardest-worked men on the staff. This was unfair. He found that the administrative ex penses amounted to £1926 4s, which amount he had no hesitation in say ing were excessive. He noticed also that the clerk's fidelity bond was paid by the council, while the engi neer paid hi...
Schedule of Works. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Schedule of Works. The President of Gostwyck Shire brought forward the following min ute at last meeting, viz.:-"Tnat the engineer be requested by the council to prepare a schedule of all work passed, or approved of by the coun cil to he carried out as soon as time permitted, that is in the past, and such schedule he placed in some con spicuous place within the council chambers, for scrutiny of the coun cil. And all Avork passed, to be done in the future, he placed on such sche dule, and as each piece of work is finished such work to be struck off, thus showing a complete record of all work before the council.1-Je said his idea was that ratepayers could then see wliat. work had boon completed, and what was to be done in the future. The councillors pre sent considered it an excellent idea, and adopted the suggestion.
Sanitary Service. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Sanitary Service. The Mayor of Bega was asked at last meeting whether arrangements could be made to have the nightsoil from the hospital removed. After discussing the ways and means, Aid. Boardman raised the point whether the council could do outside the municipality to do this work, and the Mayor ruled the matter out of order. We wonder what the hospital is doing in the meantime!
Trouble at the Orange Gasworks. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Trouble at the Orange Gasworks. The manager of the gasworks re cently disrated one of his subordi nates, who appealed to the Mayor, and the Mayor re-instated him. The council, on the casting vote of the mayor, upheld the mayor's action. The gas manage?, now alleges that lie has no control over the men, work is not done satsifactorily by them, and he asks to be relieved of his du ties.
Sculling. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Sculling. The best race of the afternoon was that between Miss Gertie Lewis (bolder of the title), and Miss Kath leen Ryan, for the ladies' sculling championship of Australasia, over a two miles' course. It was a despe rate, the two ladies fighting a great battle. Miss Lewis won by nearly three lengths, but it was her head work and greater experience that was responsible for the victory. Miss Ryan sends her boat through the water faster than the champion. She steered a very bad course, how ever, and her left arm gave way some little distance from home. She is a brilliant sculler for a lady, and her bursts of speed surprised the on lookers. With the experience gained in Saturday's race, Miss Ryan will wrest the championship from Miss Lewis. The latter is much lighter than her challenger, and uses her head to great advantage. Still she is lucky to still retain the title. Dick Arnst, the world's champion sculler, is rather seriously ill at Gladesviue, and is not likely to be seen in a ...
Trees and Roads. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Trees and Roads. J- The removal of timber from the roads by unauthorised persons is ap parently a common practice in some of the country parts. A complaint was made at last meeting of Manning Shire Council that a certain person had done so in ignorance of wrong doing. Not long previously the coun cil had passed a resolution prohibit ing the removal of timber from roads under its jurisdiction, it being con sidered that in future the council would require it for such purposes as bridge work or culverts. The coun cil-gave strict orders in reference to the matter to be observed in future.
