General Chat. . Mr. T. J- Crawfo^l was unanimously elected president of'.tho P., A., and H. Association on Saturday last. This fact amounted to a surprise w'ith a number of members, as competition for the position was expected. Tlie president and viee-prosidonts are all gentleman engaged in agriculture.

The committee decided thut a dny's sport should be hold on Kings Bii -tii-luy : and that the committee of tho Associatioa should be placed on tho same fooling as nou-meinbers of tho Association : that it should be ' pay, pay, pay ' with all and suudry, Several now members of the committee showed out prominently on Saturday and promise well for the futuvo. o o o o A feeling of content rests upon the district.

Canowiadra Cricket Club; A meeting of cricketers as advertised in our last issue, took place at Mr. J. H. Marshall's Victoria Hotel on Saturday evening last, and although there was a fair attendance it was decided in view of the objects of the meeting to postpone its j ? ; ? »;„„ iini;i tVin foilowinc Saturdav ira lctiviiun tiu*.i.i *-.~ -?' — -- ri - ^ * fto-morrow) so that all interested might be advised without fail. The meeting resolved itself into an informal discussion as to the prospects of a prosperous sea son's cricket, and the general opinion was expressed that the game would again b. c -me popular in the district.

HEELS v. HEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
HEELS v. HEAD. Several years ago half the state, and, for aught I know, half the nation, went about saying to itself a veise beginning : 'Punch conductor, punch with care, Punch in the presence of the paesen* jaro,' It was a mental burr, and said to be one of such, tenacity that you telling it to somebody ; sticking it upon another mind. It disappeared, somehow, after a weary while, but it left relatives and descendants. How a young lady found one of thorn has been told in a bit of jingling verse. While dressing she read upon a scrap of paper on her table, ? A tissue papper pattern of a pink eilk waist,' and she went nearly crazy before she could get tho words out of her head. I had my day with, both of those silly things, and am now wrestling with an old saw which, lacks their rhythm, but shows a similar tenacity because of its truth and ready application : ' What you don't have in yonr head you have to have in your heels.1 This haa been one of the many days when I work all the tim...
Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ARTICLES HOW TO IMPROVE COUNTRY MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ABTICLES HOW TO IMPEOVE COUNTET MILK. STKHOSE people who own thirty or JjjFAo forty cows, and make it a business ijf^s in producing butter for the marker, usually exercise great oare to have everything as nearly right as possible : but where only a few cows are kept to supply the family and to sell the surplus, it is often said that it does not pay to go to extra trouble. Very often it is made in small lots, and the maker does not take the trouble to make the best he can. The methods of handling the milk from the few cojts are often primitive, and the farmers' families sometimes have had the eame quality of butter for so long a time that they like it bast, although an expert would condemn it. Beginning with the cow, the animal and the sur roundings should be decently clean whin the milking is doae. One not infre quently ? may. see cows with a liberal coating of manure clinging to their sidea ; this ought not to be at milkinj time. The farmers' family should ...
BLACK AND GREEN TEA. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
BLACK AND GREEN TEA. One of the scientists at the Agricultural college at Tokio has been investigating the subject of the difference in the colour of tea leaves, and he offers the following explanation: In making green tea the leaves are steamed as soon as they are gathered; in the case of black tea the leaves are allowed to ferment beforo dry :nn Tun _**_..u- : -. 4.1.-4. 4-1.,* c:nw~j l.i ? i_ xug. *.uu icduxu ad bi»u uiao uaiouvu V1HU& tea contains much less tannin than, the green. The original tea. lt-af possesses an ' xidizmg enzjuie, which is destroyed is the green tea by steaming. In black tea, during fermentation, the enzyme oxidizes the tannin, and gives risa to a brownish product.
GIOTTO. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
GIOTTO. Giotto was a shepherd boy who lived near Florence, Italy. He was bora in 1276. From a lowly position he rose to eminence as a painter, sculptor and architect. His local reputation attracted the attention of Cimabue, who was on the lonknnt fnr A.r£in£R £n nrfnrn p.Tinrnhaa a**A cathedrals for Pops Boniface VIII. Requiring Giotto to give some evidence of his skill as painter and draughtsman, Ciambue was astonished by Giotto at once by his off-hand drawing of an O so nearly circular as to be marvellous. Hence the Italian bye-word, 'round as Giotto's O,' by which ib no meant any act that approaches perfection.

Lockwood. (From our Correspondent.) TcrE weather. — After patiently waiting for months we have at last been favored with a good rainfall. On Thurs day la«t the olouds had obscured the sky and rain began to fali, continuing throughout the night, with tf.io result that on Friday morning; 80 points wera registered and a few weeks supply of ?water was caught, in the tanks. On Saturday afternoon several heavy showers passed over the district, and 92 points fell in a very short space of timo, bringing the total fall to 172 points. This should give the crops a good start, and should we get a few more falls equal to the one just mentioned, a fair harvest n.ay bo expected. The late crops have gTrtiinated well, but not so the early ones, which must be light even under favorable condttions. . The sum of £120 has been recently received by the Commonwealth Customs Department from an unknown person who had ui 'n^n'i m:\l\y defrauded the customs of that amount.
