Garden and Field Calendar for January. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 15 January 1915
Garden and Field Calendar for January. o As we expected, the weather has been unsettled with some heavy rain falls and the heat has been -a re cord for December throughout the State, but the frequent showers coun teracted the effects of sun and wind, and crops are all promising heavy yields. The soil is in good order for cropping, and all available land should be sown with something that wviil be useful for green feed, en silage or green manuring. Dairy men and others cannot possibly have too much in the way of food supplies in the face of a general shortage and certain high prices. Maize or corn is splendid for ensil age or green feed, and grows very quickly. M-angcls or mangel wurzel give immense yields, and are grand for dairy cows, pigs and all stock; they should be largely grown. Spray ing for cherry tree slug, so often neglected, is very important; the slug causes the leaves to turd rusty and fall off, and destroys the -vital ity of the -trees and the coming crop.

Current Topics. Counsel's Opinion.-Dry law is not quite so unfavorable to the position of the State Government in the matter of the wheat seizure as might have been expected. WVe may remark, in passing, however, that it is very regrettable that struggling men, such as mcst of settlers are, should be com pelled to incur the heavy expense ot obtain ing counsel's opinion.and moving the Inter State Commission,or the High Court. How ever, the N.S.W. Farmers' Association has taken this step, and a summary of the opin ion has been sent to all the branches of the Associations In the first place, counsel states that it is clearly mandatory that the Necessary Commodities Commission shall forthwith institute an inquiry as to whether 5/- per bushel is, or is not, a fair price for the grain. If prices in other markets are allowed to carry any weight, it would seem that there can be but one reply to this question. Meanwhile, there are many growers whose necessities would make them willing to acce...

On the Benches in the Park. COOING COUPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 15 January 1915
Oi the IIenlches in the Park. COOING COUPLES. BJr request we ask couples " mashing " in the park in the daylight not to make the pace too hot. Of course at holiday time some latitude might be allowed, but even then there is a limit: The way one couple demonstrated their af fections to each other on aseat up there on Boxing afternoon is said to have quite played on the minds of other visi tors to the shady trees and well kept flower-beds. So much did it affect those who finally made themselves be lieve that they were not dreaming and were not at a play or picture show that home life appears to have become quite mixed for a time afterwards. Young boys.and girls without lovers being utterly despondent, and wives and hus bands were thrown right off their bal ance by Ihe "other halves " coming home and acting as they. did in the courling days withoiut any apparent cause. One lady we believe was so flabbergasted that she exclaimed, " Why John you're drunk." We are told that a too ardent e...

Plea for Bourke. "DEUCE TAKE TIPPERARY." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 January 1915
Plea for Bourke. " DEUOE TAKE TIPPERARY." "Swanr Hawk"' writes: -We are right in the thick of thafr apparently popular refrain entitled " It's- a Long way to Tipperary," and even the oats and dogs are equalling mud yelping something akin to it at midnight's witching hour, the result being that the majority of the light sleeping brigade are wishing the composer of the song in question at the, bottom of the seia, or in the bell. like depths of a live crater. The sooner something fresh and touching, nearer home in the vocal line for the crowd is pitched on the market the better 'twill be for many people. It's a pretty good stretch to Bourke and that goat-iufea. led drought-st uicken, back country town oply had 6 inches of rain for 1914 -just fanoy that now. Wouldn't it be better if the average crazy "jingler" could manage to roll out a few verses on the awfully sad situation at Bourke where the " Darling showers " at times are enough to suffocate a bandicoot! Let the refrain be pitheti...
The Wheat Seizure. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 January 1915
file Wheat Seizure. THE larger matter of the seizure of the new season's wheat is in suspense. The Inter-State Comnmission is to sit on Mon day next to decide whether any breach of the Constitution has been committed or not. The defence of the State authori ties is, virtually, that the wheat is, their own property.! an as sertion of "the divine right of kings," which in this 20th cen tury, is somewhat startling. Apart fromithe question which is to be decided by the Com mission, it is pointed out that the Government has unques tionably . been guilty 'of depri ving its own citizens of their property without giving any thing like fair, and adequate compensation, The wheat seized is worth in a fair and open market very much more than the niggardly 5/- which is all that the Government pro poses to give for it. The dif ference is being confiscated, 'a proceeding to which a very ugly term might justly be applied. Moreover, the statutory ditty of'the Necessary Commodities Commission is bein...
