I. Walli. . (From our own Correspondent) How sweet aloDg old Walli road, In pensive mood to stray, And watch the last receding beam That speeds the winged day. But oh, 'tis sweeter, lovelier, far - As shades of light grow dim ; To pnter dear old Waili hall Midst strains of violin. How gay the merry dancers seem, How graceful step and pose, As to the time of music clear Each whirling couple goes * * * Such my thoughts on many an occasion; but doubly so on the beautiful night of the 15th instant, the occasion of the Walli Cricketers' Ball and Supper. The function proved a great success, and everybody present appeared to enjoy it very much Heavy rain set in on Saturday night, 18th inst., and continued until Monday morning, 1G7 points being registered.

POULTRY. DUCK BREEDING. AN EXTENSIVE FARM. SOMETHING ABOUT CROWDING. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911
POULTRY. DUCK BREEDING. 'AN EXTENSIVE FARM. SOMETHING ABOUT CROWDING. It Is usually considered necessary to allow one acre of land for every 100 birds. Any farmer who suggested con centrating 3,000 to tlie acre would (says a writer In an English paper) be deem ed a lunatic at large; yet, by the utili sation of the most up-to-date methods, this can be done. The Middlesex Duck Plant, at Harrow Weald, which oc cupies only 11 acres, has actually sent 6,000 ducks to market during the la.it twelve months, and next year the num ber will be doubled. The success of this remarkable institution-the only one of its kind in Europe, and the biggest in the world-is a standing tribute to the value of science as an aid to farming. There are, of course, dozens of incu bators, holding from 150 to 300 eggs each. By means of an instrument de signed for the purpose it is possible to see Inside the egg, and follow the un hatched-duckling's evolution from a mero speck-like embryo till he, has grown big eno...
PICKING THE PROLIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911
PICKING THE PROLIFIC. An American has boon exploiting different parts of the world with the secret of how to pick poor, good, or heavy layers by physical examination of the bird. For this valuable secret a fee that would be considered mode rate for an infallible system was charged. The system, which is based on the formation of the pelvic bones, is not new in America, where it has been referred to in the poultry prfpers for several years past. In the new edition of "The Trap Nest Text Book," Mr Wellcome, the American authority, who has devoted a lifetime to individual testing and breeding on those lines, in a chapter on "Detecting Laying and Non-laying Hens by Observation and Physical Examination," mentions the examina tion of the pelvic bones as in some degree useful for this purpose. He appends a report of the test on a number of hens whose individual per formances were matters of trap-nest record. "Under all the tests," he says, "some of the heaviest layers were considered line, ...

THE DAIRY. ART OF MILKING. TREATMENT OF COW. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911
THE DAIRY. !> ART OF MILKING. TREATMENT OF COW. To perform the operation of milking successfully, several important things must be observed. It is highly impor tant that it must be done quickly, quietly and gently, before commencing to milk. The milker should walk right up by the side of the animal and let her see him. There should be no fidgeting about close to the cow, or jumping up and down and changing the position fre quently. The stool should be placed in position and the milker should sit down on it, and then sit still. The cow's udder .should be lightly rubbed with a damp cloth to remove any pieces of loose dirt. The pail should be placed with the milker's knees supporting it in a com fortable manner, and then the operation should commence, and the milk should be drawn in long "squirts" by gently pressing with the thumb and forefingers, at the same time giving a very gentle downward pull. Particular care should be taken to milk the cow quite dry, as the last milk is very ...

THE MILKING LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911
THE MIIJKIXG LILFK. How long does a cow remain profit able in a herd? This is a question that a dairy farmer has to settle many times each year. Most owners have had in dividual animals that 'remained good ?milkers till beyond their twelfth, or .even -fourteenth' year," but .'the great ma jority have "petered out" long before that time. At the other end of the seals is the nesvly-brolten-in heifer, which sel dom milks well for the first year, or until | she has been drilled up, as it were. It iis, indeed,; generally considered that on an average cows improve up till their seventh year, and begin to decline p'ter that. In the case of a good animal, however, the decline Is not very bad till the tenth or even the twelfth year. In contradistinction to this, however, Is the liability to disease-milk fever, tuborcule, etc.-any of which may carry the animal off prematurely or compel her to_be "scraped."; .Tubercle (writes Professor M'Connell) is, the most lilrely cause of shortening ttfe u...
