HORSE SIXTY YEARS OLD. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912

HORSE SIXTY YEARS OLD. Does anyone -interested in horses recollect a horse who worked and served for 51 years? Such is said to be the record of Dubby, of Alton, in the United StatesV Up to 30 years this horse was a standby in a livery stable, but being then deemed too old for further active service,* he was sold to a man who drove, the animal for, 14 years, when he, too, concluded that "the horse was too old to be of value, and he wasjdisposed of \to-a man-,' who put him out ,to'vpiasture to end his days. During tliis period of relief, Dubby- appeared to renew his youth, in such a fashion that one day, in an emergency, , he was liar-. nessed ; to a cart,-and for ten years thereafter he was used'-as a favorite driving horse. ■■•'■J&ere was 54 years, and according to the dates given in a St. Louis newspaper, there are half ei dozen more years when the horse was apparently in pasture, it is good to read that Dubby, at the end of his GO years,( was given n fitting Inirinl.

CURRENT TOPICS. AUSTRALIAN CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912

CURRENT TOPICS. AUSTRALIAN CRICKET. The poor Kangaroo lies on tlie cricket'field with a-badly twisted tail, the-British.-Lion-.rampant above him (this is a suggestion for future Australian coinage). The Kangaroo ha.s never before-in the history- "of these international struggles, had such an exceedingly bad time of it,; He has been beaten, and --for: the time dismayed, but never before lias he had his nose so thoroughly ' rubbed' into defeat. Barnes and. Foster have bowled out both his eyes, and-I-lobbs, Rhodes, and Cq. have ✓ knocked the hide off him. A. woe-begone,. sorry\x=req-\ looking ex-fighter. is the Kangaroo of to-day. The worst of it is that he has got his hiding, in the opinion of 'some, not purely""on Ins merits (or demerits) as a cricketer.

ON THE LAND. LAMBS DIE EATING SAND. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912

ON THE LAND. LAMBS DIE EATING SAND. Mr White, Stock- Inspector, paid a special visit to Baradine to examine some lambs that were dying from some unknown cause. Postmortems, were held on the lambs that had just died, also on lambs showing signs of. sick inflammation;/ while the fourth stomach was found to be quite healthy and full of grass; the second and. third stomachs were'empty, and showed'signs of inflammation, while the third stomach contained undlg- | ested grass, curdled milk, and a quantity of sand., The lambs ate now four months old, and have been ill for two weeks, over 50 per cent, .of the flock dying. Until the beginning of December the country on which the ewes and lambs are run\x=req-\ nig was very bare of grass, and it was thought the lambs contracted a liking for the sand. The symptoms of this disease are constipation and a slight running from each side of the mouth.

The Forbes Advocate, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1912. BULK HANDLING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912

ffjje Jforte Jp&ocatc, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1912. BULK HANDLING. A question about which there has been a lot of talk, and very little settlement, asU'ar as 'Australia is concerned, is the bulk handling of wheat, ancj 'yet it is one of..very great importance to the producer.'" There is no doubt iii the world about the waste and delay of the present method of handling, but this seems to be one of those matters where reform is very slow in coming, even though the necessity for it is generally re-." cognised. In America, bulk hand-ling is the adopted" system. It was first introduced there by the railway companies, and as everyone knows that American railway corporations have no soul beyond the almighty dollar, it may be taken for granted that the reform was for their' own benefit as the first consideration. It is claimed by the admirers of pri-. vate enterprise in all things that if the railways' of Australia had been privately'owned, the bulk handling of wheat long: ago would h...

THE SHEEP FLY AND THE RABBIT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912

THE SHEEP FLY AND THE \ RABBIT, At a meeting of the Wagga Pastures Protection Board a letter was received from -the Jerildei'ie Board,' asking for co-operation iu having an Act passed to suppress the blow-fly pest and lice in sheep, both of ■which were on the increase, by means of compulsory dipping. Directors expressed the view that dipping was no remedy for flies, although excellent for lice. Director Young said that much of the trouble with the blowfly was brought upon owners by their own .carelessness iu leaving dead flesh about. Especially was the pest encouraged by the system of rabbit\x=req-\ trapping, by, which skinned carcases and skins were left aooiit. -.The rotting carcases bred the flies by myri-, ads. It was decided toMritimate that the Wagga Board could not co-operate, as dipping was not an effective remedy for flies.

BEETLES DAMAGE WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912

BEETLES DAMAG13 WOOL, ' The Minister for: Agriculture recently; received from Mr J. B. Suttor, Commercial Commissioner in the iEast, a sample of woollen tops, shipped from Sydney to Japan, which was so badly infested with the cocoons of some insect as to be practically worthless. Mr W. W. Proggart, Government Entomologist, identified this as the work of the red-legged ham beetle, which is found the world over. With vessels which carry such mixed cargo as copra and bones these beetles often abound, and it is evident that they found their way into the bales of wool to pupate, either while on board ship or in store. The same thing has occurred occasionally in connection with wool shipped to London, and it shows the necessity for care in safe-guarding wool from damage in this way.

QUESTION TIME IN THE COUNCIL. THE BATHURST BURR. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912

QUESTION TIME IR THE COUNCIL. THE BATHURST BURR. Alderman L. Reymond asked the Mayor on Tuesday night if it was the intention of the Council to cut all the Bathurst burrs on the roads of -the municipality. If they were not cut soon, he said, they would shortly go to seed, which would be blown into other properties that were clean'; he had noticed some instances of it. The Mayor said he had given instructions to destroy the burr, and the most forward burrs in the thickest patches would be attended to first. He had noticed patches on the Bogan Gate Road, and if Alderman Reymond would point out any other patches they would be dealt with at once. Later on Alderman Reymond returned to the charge. The trouble was, he said, that there had been a lot of talk about burr-cutting, without any effective results. Neither the Shire Council nor the P.P. Board had any authority to destroy the burr on the reserves, and so it was a waste of time destroying the noxious weed on holdings, whilst it was ...

RELIC OF THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912

RELIC OF THE PAST. I Yesterday we (Bathurst "Advo\x=req-\ I cate") were.shown a revolver, of very antique pattern, which was stated to have been found by Mr "Pat." Fraser, of the Ba.thurst Freezing Works, whilst engaged digging for gold near the Vale Creek, on Saturday last. We are also given to understand that Mr Fraser was seeking the precious metal with a view of making a recovery, some "dinkum" information which he received from the well\x=req-\ known Sydney punter, Mr "Skinny" Moss, having turned out a duffer. Mr Sid. Fraser, brother of the finder, is of opinion that the revolver was used by Sir Frederick Pottinger, or Ben Hall and his gang, as they raced away from Bathurst, after their famous raid many years ago, but whether this is correct or not we leave our readers to decide.

WHAT EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW. Every woman should know that surgical operations are at all times most dangerous. Before submitting to an operation, with all its attendant uncertainty, inquiry should be made as to whther there is any alternative remedy. The home treatment, as adopted by the Ladies' College of Health, has been successfully used in thousands of cases where an operation was said to be the only cure. The treatment is inexpensive, and may be used in one's home. Jl book, telling about this grand treatment, will be sent free on receipt of 2d stamp for postage. Address letters to Dept. A.M., Ladies' College of Health, 177 Liverpool\x=req-\ street, Sydney.* You have heard of the K.-H.O.G.— the kind-hearted old gentleman, of course!

OUR SERIAL STORY. WHEN A WOMAN WOOS. CHAPTER IX (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912

OUR SERIAL STORY. WHEN A WOMAN WOOS. CHAPTER IX (Continued). When Audrey was five or six years old there was a new source of trouble. Mrs Tregarthan shared the maternal instinct with her eat, but went no further. So long as her children were physically dependent upon her she was a good mother, but after that she didn't know what to do with them. It wasn't her fault that she knew nothing whatever about the bringing-up of children as little human beings; whenever the subject had been discussed in her presence she had been assured that "love came with them," and she supposed that nothing more was needed. Tregar\x=req-\ than, on the other hand, at any rate, saw the importance of the subject. The dawning of intelligence, which only perplexed his wife, as the unaccountable behaviour of the ducklings perplexed the hen, appealed to his suppressed idealism, and the child naturally turned to the parent in whom she found companionship. Her mother gaver her dinner and washed her face, but her f...
