STIR IN PITT STREET. NEWS OF DIAMOND FIND AT CROOKWELL CAUSES MILD SENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 26 September 1925
STIR IN PITT STREET, NEWS OF DIAMOND FIND AT CROOKWELL CAUSES MILD SENSATION. The Sydney correspondent of the Melbourne "Argus" has the -follow ing in Saturday's issue o£ that jour nal:— Pitt-street was mildly stirred to day (Friday) at the story telegraphed from Goulburn about an extraordinary find at Crookwell. The telegram has an Arabian Nights flavour, and if only half true will cause a turning over of musty piles of ancient documents in order to recover forgotten prospec tuses of bygone times, when it was easy to create a booin. Prospectors report from the one mine open rich yields of diamonds, sapphires, cat's eyes, tourmalines, olivines, and gold. This is somewhat similar to the Bin gera diamond drift first exploited by an old Bendigo miner, except that olivines and cat's-eyes are not speci ally noticeable in it. There would be nothing tfc excite in these details, for gem country is known in a dozen places in this State, but the reported size of the diamonds is unusual. In al...

Crookwel! Oottage Hospital ONE OF THE MOST MODERN IN THE COUNTRY. The Crookwell and District Cottage Hospital is admittedly well-equipped and up-to-date.

PASTORAL. FLOCK MANAGEMENT. Anticipating Periods of Food Scarcity. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 26 September 1925
PASTORAL. FLOCK MANAGEMENT. Anticipating Periods of Food 8carc!ty. It Is possible by the adoption of con servative principles of station manage ment to reduce the risks connected with the business in a very material degree, and among such principles may be mentioned the avoidance of over stocking, and the improvement of the pastures. "Avoid overstocking" seems com monplace advice, and it is referred to with , great regularity, whenever stock are suffering from a shortage! of food. Actually the problem is more complex than it appears on the surface. In«a good season the growth, of herbage is so profuse that stock cannot poss ibly keep it down. It 3s trampled un derfoot and lies in a tangled mass on the ground. Should further rain en sue it rots, and later new herbage grows through it. If it dries it is available as food during the following months, and it is especially valuable if it is seeded well, for sheep will then readily fatten on it ' This, of course, does not apply to those g...

LIVE STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 3 October 1925
LIVE STOCK. Since "milk is nature's food for ani mals, it has been assumed that milk contains all the elements combined in the right proportions necessary for the perfect growth of the young. Experi ments have shown, writes E. T. Hal nan (Animal Nutrition Institute, Cam bridge University), that this assump tion needs modification, particularly when milk designed for one particu lar species of animal is utilised as food for another species. It 'has been demonstrated, for in stance, that the milk of cows fed un der winter-stall conditions is often de-. ficient in those vitamines considered essential to growth. Moreover, cal ves fed on milk to the exclusion of other foods will eventually die. Milk . is also deficient in one important ele ment, i.e., iron. The reason why the young animal grows successfully dur ing the suckling period is that at birth a sufficient store of material rich in iron is present in the liver to sup ply its requirements during the suck ling period. The deleterio...
