Agricultural Education. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 March 1900

Agricultural Education. THE report of the Hawkesbury Agricultural College which has lately been issued', discloses a highly gratifying state of affairs. When this institution, which was the first of its kind, was started there were many who predicted evil days for it, and many more who were opposed to thc Govern- ment taking up such a task ; but the great majority,, who knew what excellent services such insti- tutions had rendered, not only in the sister Colony of Victoria, but in America, were quite prepared to see it, under competent man- agement, assume a very important place in our Agricultural, and therefore, in our National life. These expectations may well be said to have been fully realised, although the numbers who are at present farming on their own account on the methods they learned from the various colleges are few, but the groundwork of usefulness has been laid, and its worth- has been satisfactorily proved, so there is nothing further than . to continue to extend the ...

Leyds. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 March 1900

Leyds. THE many fairy tales told by this versatile person reminds one of the way a little boy at school is always talking about what his big brother will do to his tormentors. The wonder is that he. can get anyone, to place any credence in. what he says, so ridiculous and so extreme ave his statements, but there are of course many on. the Continent who listen to the pretty tales, devoutly wishing that they were true. The statement, for instance, that the Afrikanders will rise if necessary against Brit- ish rule, carries it own absurdity with it. It is necessary now, if over it was eutelv, but if they - ever were goi^j^.^^j|ihcr!il^ have donej it'months ago7T>efor© the tide f)ejgan to turn in favor of the British.

Precedence. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 March 1900

Precedence. THIS is one of the most ancient bones of contention known, to history, and a recent event has again made bare the old sore. The poet tells us that King Arthur established the round table in order that there might be no jealousy among his knights, as to the position they occupied at ¡ table when dining, but consider- ing that Royal Arthur himself used to sit at the table too, the difficulty must have been keen as ever, since the position of honour would have been as near as pos- sible to the Royal master. In the recent bushman'scontingentsend off, Mayor Harris headed the pro- cession, being followed by the Premier and Ministers. In ac coniplishing this feat the civic head of the metropolis is thought to have accomplished a great feat, though some one rushes into priut and points out that our ¡ Constitution Act, lays it down most emphatically, where a mayor is to take his place in public pro- cession., To an ordinary minded person it seems very absurd that the Mayor of the...

WINDSOR L. and D. SOCIETY j The UBual weekly meeting of the above was held on Tuesday evening in the School of Arts, when there was a fair at- tendance of members present.

THE FARMERS' CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 March 1900

THE FARMERS' CROP. To sell any feed crop off che farm is generally a poor method of util- ising the farm s resources. Live* stock of all kinds should be kept, and in sufficient numbers to con- * sume all the fred that is raised« , Not only does this insure a better price for the feed that can be se- cured on the market, but by apply- ing the manures of the different animals the land can be made more productive and valuable each sea- son, instead of losing fertility con- « tinually, as is the case where the products of the soil are sold. Keep- . ing all the live stock the farm can be made to carry and keep in good condition involves some more ex- pense in water supply, fencing, sh nd H. and barna for shelter ami storage of feed stuffs, but all these are permanent investments that pay regular dividends. The general stock farmer, that is, the farmer who raises cattle horses, sheep, and hogs, to which might be added poultry, can have something to market during all the different sea- son...

MOONLIGHT CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 March 1900

MOONLIGHT CONCERT. Â most successful concert was held at the Vineyards on Thursday night last in connection with the Vineyard Church of England. Nearly 100 persons were present, including a large number from Windsor and other parts of the district. The unsettled state of the weather during the afternoon was responsible for keeping a good many away, who would otherwise have gone. However, the promoters are to be complimented on the success that attended their -efforts, and also for the good performance given. Thc Bev. S. G. Fielding, took the chair during the evening. Mr. W. Farrell appeared to be the ruling spirit iu connection with the entertainment, and he was responsible to a great extent for its success, whilst Mesadmes Moss, Schoffel, Jtfaml and other ladies are desert iug of ? credit for the active part in the organising of the concert. The audience wei« most appreciative, as was proved by the applause that greeted each item, encores bein? verv numerous. The following programm...

ORCHARD & FARM. THE VALUE OF FUMIGATION [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 March 1900

ORCHARD & FARM. THE VALUE OF FUMIGATION S Considerable discussion has re- .? cently taken place in the press re- garding the relative merits of spraying and fumigation for the treatment Of orchard pests. The Government Entomologist, who has been giving practical demonstra- tions in the latter process in various. parts of the colony, states that for all kinds of scales, aphis, and sur- face eating insects the fumes act like magic in destroying these pests. Orchardists, however, con- tend that the cost of the tents and ingredients necessary for fumiga-. tion makes it too expensive to carry out on a large scale. Also they contend that the larvae of the lady- birds and other scale-destroying insects are killed as well as the inj urious insects. The fruit expert, while admitting that the cost of & fumigating outfit is high for the ordinary growers, thinks that a number of orchardists might com- bine and procure one outfit between them. This would materially re- duce the e...
