THE PROSPECTS FOR MUTTON EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 14 April 1894
THE PROSPECTS FOR MUTTON EXPORTS. A representative of a large Australian meat firm in London, who is now in Sydney, says . — 'The prospects of the trade at present are very favourable. Australian meat, is getting better known and more liked in England. If care be taken on this side in the selection of the meat, aud in the freezing and shipping, there is no reason to doubt that the mutton should do otherwise than to leave a good return to graziers. Growers, however, should not think that they can form an opinion on the result of a single shipment. They should make up their minds to make a series, and then judge from the ulti mate result of the lot. Those who ship, too, must understand that, in making their arrange ments, tonnage has to be engaged months ahead, and ships cannot be picked up at a few days' notice. Aa regards the trade in England, it is extending steadily, and there is no reason , to believe that fresh markets will open out. . Al ready Port Said is taking a considerable...

Cement at German's Hill. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 14 April 1894
Cement at German's Hill. Mr. John Lyster, of German's Hill, sent some time ago samples of ceineut found on his property to Sydney for analysis, and he ha3 received the following reply : — ' Adverting to your letter of the 19th February, forwarding mateiial for analysis and report as to the suitability for the manufacture of cement, the following is an analysis of the large quantity of decomposed vol canic material -—Silica, 43.190 per cent ; alumina, 16.270 ; oxide of ii 'on, 12.040 ; lime, .968 ; magnesia, .830 ; alkalis or chlorides, 3 640 ; water of hydration, 17.410; water of com bination, 6. 040 ; total, 100.388. The amount of silica soluble in hydrochloric acid iB only .31 per cent, but the whole of the iron is taken up and nearly all the lime and magnesia. The substance consists therefore of clay (silicate of alumina), and the iron as ferric oxide. The almost en tire absence of lime is a drawback when required for the manufacture of cement, and the whole of the lime would hav...
Death of a Child through Neglect [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 14 April 1894
Death of a Child through Neglect. An inquiry, conducted by Mr. George Towsor, J.?., into the death of an infant 2 months old, named William James West, was held at Orange on Tuesday. The mother of the child, Ada' West, put the child out to nurse in Newtown, under the provisions of the Children's Protection Act. ohe subsequently sent it to Orange, where its custody was transferred to a married woman named Franoes Davis. The infant died last Sunday, and Dr. Goode, who made, a post mortem examination of the body, deposed that the child's body weighed barely 41b, whereas a newly-born iiifarit should weigh from olb to 71b. The body contained hardly any blood. He said the child had died from starvation and neglect. „ Dr. Ring, who had attended the child for a few -?'* days, said if his treatment had been adhered to the child would not have died. He ascribed death to wasting away and careless treatmnet. Evideuoe given showed that the child was very sickly when Davis got it. The inquiry las...
Lecture on Samoa. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 14 April 1894
Lecture on Samoa. On Monday evening the Rev. J. Collier, who has been labouring as a missionarjr in Samoa for some years past, delivered h highly interesting and instructive lecture on Samoa ' in the local Wesleyan Chuich. There was a good attend ance aud the lecturer was listened to with great attention. The Rey. Mr. Collier prefaced lus remarks by a sketch of the physical geography of the Sani -» u group and the population of the various islands forming the group.

SILAGE FROM UNHUSKED CORN. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 14 April 1894
SILAGE FROM UN HUSKED CORN. It has been found that the farmer siloing corn ears and all, gets the full advantage of the grain, as, besides procuring the food at less expense, he will get, at least, as much out of his corn when it is put into the silo as when it iB dried and fed separately as fodder and grain. The cheapest- and most convenient way to preserve the old corn crop is to till it directly into the silo. On every farm enough ear corn should be picked off to supply seed corn and to furnish feed for swine and other farm animals which do not take very kindly to silage. The resulting leaves and stalks may be put into the Btloon top of thecorn silage containing the grain. TIiub the most of the corn may be Boiled when the soft grains are glazing, and the plot of corn which iB to supply ripe ears may stand in the field until the com is fully matured., Lf preferred, the cornstalks and leaves Which grow the ripe eats may be fed dry as fodder. For cows giving milk, the siloing of cor...

FARMER & GRAZIER. I yr' ? — ? ; : rtJnder this heading wo shall bo glad to publish tojflributions having reference to agricultural and pastoral matters. Farmers and graziers in the Mo long district are, therefore, requested to forward any items of interest in connection with tlnir re spective industries to the Editor of the Expbkss,] The local maize crop promises a very good return. A ? large area has been planted this season, and although low prices may rule growers will have the satisfaction .of having a good quantity for sale. This will equalise mat ters, and the proceeds, as a result, will be more widely circulated. Mr. J. Leary, of Cumnock, sent a very larife consignment of apples from his orchard to Sydney last week. From Forbes we hear that the low prices ruling for all kinds of agricultural produce has had a very depressing effect upon the farmers, and it is more than likely that the area that will be placed under crop this year will not reach that of last season.

CODAL. Although we are on the verge of winter we have not yet experienced any cold or frosty weather. The nights are delightfully cool anil the days very hot. .. -the country round about is looking splendid, and some very nice crops of corn are iu evidence. I was pleased to see that (he Footballers Ball ou Friday evening was a decided success, nnd may a liko result attend any future undertaking by the club, for the way in whioh it conducts its affairs reflects credit upon the club, and ia deserving of patronage. The ha|l was artisti cally decorated by Messrs. Pembroke, H. and J. Burton, and C. Campbell, and looked very comfortable and inviting. Punctually at 8 o'clock, Harrie Carman took bis seat at the piano, and the fun then began. Mr. G. Healey acted as M.C., and kept things going rather lively.

THE PIG AS A FARM HAND. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 21 April 1894
the pig as a farm hand. The increase of grain farmiug, aud the heavy crops of grain reaped last season, with the stilt heavier crops of maize now beini; gathered, plead for the pig as au . assistant towards successful farmiug. - When .corn falls, below 2s a bushel (that is, clear to the growers), or wheat goes below 2s 6d, then the best use, the grain can be put to is to convert it into pork, hams, and lard. The one drawback to the satisfactoiy feeding of pigs in connection with the dairy factories, — but, of course, at a long distance away from where butter is made — has been the want of grain to be given with the machine milk. The two together,' that is, milk with wheat or tnaiz -, make a perfect pjg feed, and should tend greatly to the increase of pigs in the south. Iu the west, wheat is the feed ; in the north, tiiHize. The pig has claims upon all brancht s of farming.

WHEAT FOR LAYING HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 21 April 1894
WHEAT FOR LAYING HENS. Whole wheat grains Contain more of the material for making eggs than any other single grain, if the hens are kept in warm qunrteis, or while the weather is warm, wheat is, there fore, au excellent feed for laying heus. It may not be the best exclusive feed. No feed is best as exclusive of all others, but wheat coiues nearer to it than any other grain. Judging only by analysis, wheat bran might be deemed to furnish all the material elements found in eggs. But the fact that the grain answers for their digestion better than the bran makes it better as food f--r poultry. The gizzird' of fowls needs to be exercised. Wheat urain gives this exercise, andjin this consists its superiority^ About 700 or 800 men --11 the supposed gold field at Brooinau, on the Clyde, are iu grea1 destitution, living mainly 011 potatoes and pumpkins. It is probable that the Victorian Government, will, offer a bonus for the invention of a port able prospecting plant.
