Cream Separators. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 23 April 1901

Cream Separators. Some excellent samples of cream separators were exhibited this year at the Royal Agricul tural Show. One which received a deal of favourable comment was that of Messrs. J. Gommesen & Co., of 24 Wilson Street, New town, the agents for the appropriately named "Perfect" Separator. The "Perfect" is turned out by the Danish lirm of Burmeister it- Wain, who employ some 2000 hands, and supply the world with all classes of dairy requisites. Denmark is, of course, the hub of the dairying world, and Messrs. Burmeister and Wain at Copenhagen had the advantage of being able to malte use of the latest dis coveries revealed in the butter trade when designing their great machine. Awarded first prize (the Grnnd Prix) at the Paris Exhibi lion lust year, ami judged by the assembled experts to be the best of its class yet invented, it should command ail enormous sale in Aus tralia. The " Perfect " is simple in construc tion, is easy to work, runs lightly, is durable, is easy ...

GLEN INNES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 23 April 1901

GLEN INNES. The beat feature abmt"]this] exhibit was undoubtedly, its dairy specimens, in which competition, it will be noticed, it secared the highest number of points from the judges, beating Grafton by one point, Cam den by three points, and Grenfell by four. In cheese, the highest possible award was given, as also in butter, milk and cream. So great was the opinion formed of the dairy exhibits, that a special certificate of merit w is awarded. The dried fruits and candied fruits, which fotmed Lhe exhibit sent in by Mr Heindriehs, also received a special cer tificate, and the bottles of lollies contri buted by Mr. Copp were similarly honored. Some Very fine specimens of wool, scoureo by Cliappell Bros, of Dundee (Glen Innes), received special notice. Of cereals, it may be mentioned, the district has been particu larly successful, both for quantity and quality of grain.

The Federal Wire Strainer and Splicer. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 23 April 1901

The Federal Wire Strainer and Splicer. We saw at work at the Royal AyriuulUiral Show the Federal Wire Strainer and Splicer. It performed two operations at the one time, nn-J it will, without doubt, be in universal use all over the world. It is patented in all the States, and the sales, so the manufacturers aver, far exceed the power of production, so rapid has been the onslaught of graziers, sheep farmers, and others, who have recognised its sinipleness, effectiveness, powerfulness, dnr ableness, cheapness, neatness and economy. The erected fence on the ground was the object of the most intense interest, and the " Smoko " Sheep-Shearing Machine. appellation of Federal is u happy one, as the simple contrivance unites and binds wires from opposite directions, from a ten-chain strain each way. Each strainer, which is about four inches long, is complete in itself, the wires are caught in a splice in the centre of the contrivance, and by the use of a lever the strain is effected, and two...

"Toxa," the Rabbit Exterminator [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 23 April 1901

" Toxa," the Rabbit Exterminator The continually increasing numbers of rabbits in certain districts of tliis State appear to have caused no little alarm to the members of the Pnstoralists' and Agriculturists'Asso ciation, and the Farmers' and Settlers' Association of the Western Districts.

Roundabout Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 23 April 1901

Roundabout Notes. (By " Nulmca.") The first motor car that over moved • through Sydney streets was a creature with a harsh, discordant voice ; never silent and was generally alluded to by the bus-drivers as "a blanky sawmill.'' If this car does not straightway dio of oitvy, it will eortafnly bury itself or do some thing equally violent—that is if it has been to the show. For here we have been treated to a motor car parade. Horseless vehicles of all patterns and shapes to tho number of quite a dozen, large and small, holding 0110 or half a dozen passengers and with ono < r two ex ceptions we see thum all steal along as silently as tho visit of your wife's relations. And they rush round at a speed that would send a cab horse dizzy, but at tho same time they can bo brought up sud denly within a smaller compass than one cares to stop a trotting horse. Tho bugle of warning which tho driver blows is some what remmiscont of "Ice Cream" and " Hokey Pokey." Nevertheless the motor ...

WOLLONGBAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 23 April 1901

WOLLONQBAR. This State farm is under the miuiagemon of Mr. Jackson, who may be congratulated on the verv handsome exhibits which he bus sent. Wollonsbir is on the Richmond River, about ei«ht miles from Tiismore. For some Hawkesbury College. time past rumour has been lit work concern ing the advancement being 'made in the Northern District in dairying and farming products. The district is very tropical, and necessarily the exhibits are of a different character to those from the other State farms. Thus we have here sugar ciines, pineapples, bananas, plantains, arrowroot, pawpaw, date palms, and other tropical vegetation impos sibie of production in othor regions. A special experiment is now being made to grow pine apples from seed and roots imported from Ceylon and America. To judge by tile fruit exhibited success still waits upon the efforts being made, and thus native-grown pine apples are a luxury which the future contains for the inhabitants of this State. Further than this, consi...

Government Agricultural Exhibits. The Experimental Farms. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 23 April 1901

Government Agricultural Exhibits. The Experimental Farms. The large crowd which thronged the building where the exhibits from the Go vernmental farms were displayed told its own story of deep interest and the desire to benefit by the teaching which experience and scientific experiment willingly give. Since these farms were inaugurated by the New South Wales Government the amount of information regarding possible and im possible agricultural feats which they have been the means of collecting has been simply astounding. That their value to our farmers lies far beyond their actual cost has been proved over and over again, while the many experiments as to suitable crops which may be successfully grown in the various districts of the Stale make their continuance an absolute necessity. Too much praise can not be given to cither the patriotism and wisdom of the various Go vernments which continue the judicious policy of these experimental farms, or to the managers who show so much zeal and...
