WOOL TERMS. BALES. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 22 December 1915

WOOL TERMS. (By H. \V. I-Inm, Shi:op Export). BALES. XJn farm holdings or in transit, it is usual for any quantity of wool enclosed in tho customary juto wool-pack • to bo termed a bale. But once in store on snlo for export, one of tlie rules of tho Wool-buyers' Association demands that "no pnekago shall lio considered a balo unless ii lie contained in n wool-pack, bo in a shipublo order, and weigh at least, for greasy wool, 2001 hs gross." > Thit rule, in comparatively a new ono. It lias been instituted because of tho steadily increasing number of J liRbt-woight bales sent in by grow ers in recent years. For thin there nro several causes. Growers of high class wools, moro particularly smaller breeders, have learnt (hat most classes of wool open up moro attractively if not too tightly pressed. Also that the larger tho number of bales in one line, tho moro attontion is given to it, and tho better tin; competition. And, us lvoll, a matter which affected the small grower most, all l...

PROCESSION NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 22 December 1915

PROCESSION NOTES. There is a large possibility of the procession at the gymkhana being very interesting. "Waraand wais and rumors of war " are in the air, and the patriotic element should be very well represented at the proces sion. Our local tonsorial artist whis pers something about Jumbo, the Elephant, coming on a visit. They are trying to work up'the Darktown Fire Brigade from Foxhow, so says "Dave Brown." The Allies' Tableaux is likely to come from Corindhap way,and we have visions of a beautiful decorated motor car from Strath vean. There are many other motor carB in the district, and surely it would not be too much to expect several of these to come with a bit of bunting, etc., on them. Then, again, there are several motor cycles, which lend them selves so nicely to artistic effort and design. A troop of mounted military men are being worked up to take part, and should prove a pretty sight. A surprise is mooted from Bar pinda way, and keen interest is being evinced in the gym...

ROOTS AND STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 22 December 1915

ROOTS AND Efl'OGK. An English stock farmer says:—A bullock averaging llcivt livo "'eight is considered to consume from six to eight tijnos as much food as a good storq sheep of a heavy breed, and yot a fattening sheep is generally beliovcd to require 201b of ro#s per day, but when it comes to feeding mangels, onb knows very well that a bullock may t'hrivo quite well on from 601b to 80ib per head per day. This proportion is often applied in estimating the ability of a crop, of swedes to support a cer tain number of sheep, and works out at a little over threo hundred shoep being maintained por week on ono ncrc of ground, carrying 20tons of swedes. This would seem a small yield to north country farmers, but flock masters in tho south know that tho crop often falls below this figure. In any case, tlio maximum number of Khcep that could bo kept on an aero of swedes por week would not exceed '100, which workn out -it about 101b of roots per head per day.

TUG-OF-WAR NOTES. 'Smith Sandiford has returned home in splendid fettle for "tug ging," and challenges the Presi dent for the Blind Wheelbarrow Race. Friends Rogers and"Batt" are seeking seclusion owing to being "shook up," while Jay Aitch Sea and Ess Aitch Em are still in the throes of vebiage and ink. Jack Mac says he has proved himself to be as strong as a lion, and if he is indisposed on that day little Jack will take his place, hence no loss will be felt by the CresBy team. Scrachetary Ross says it ought to be weight ror age, then he would be all right, as anything under seven or over seventy is his mark. ■ The three Toms from Weering (Hester, Nelson and Dunne) are training entirely on Onion Diet, so that the flavor will help to draw their opponents over the line, while Turtle declares that to go on his hands and knees is no good to him.

I don't caro how much timo a givl spends over her hair and eompJoxion, unless slio is really well and has a sweet disposition, it is all moro or less timo wasted, for sho can nover Ijo really and truly good to look at. Everybody ought to niako tlio very best of horsolf, and spond a reason ablo amount of timo in doing no; but, to my mind, a girl is making thn very worst of herself if sho daubs her faun with thick coatings of cream mid pnw dor, darkens hor brows and lashes heavily, and tints 'her hair a different color from what God meant it to bo. Such treatment ruins the skin, and in. girl who abuses her poor faco in this way can expect, to liavo what, after all, ovoryono admires, a beautiful first thing-in-tho-morning complexion.
