GRENFELL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
GRENFELL. Mr Stanley Williams met with an accident that had the effect of laying him by for a time. It appears ho was riding his motor out to Mr H. P. Knight's ,on the first stage of a journey, and from what he can remember thinks the bicycle must have struck a tree; anyhow, the first thing he remembered was waking up in bed at "The Pines." Following the tracks later, it was evident that after the accident, Mr Williams must have been leading his bicycle around for a couple of hours, and did arrive at Mr Knight's wheeling his bike, although he remembered nothing about it. With the exception of an eye in deep mourning, Mr Williams is otherwise uninjured, though he felt the -.ill effects of tli.e fall for Bome days; the journey he started on was eventually, undertaken on the motor bike, though Mr Williams is now making up his mind to exchange this mode of travelling for the more comfortable motor car. In addition to the silver service presented to Mrs Arthur Grimin, a gold watch has be...

EXPERIMENTS WITH KALE. iSome trials of varieties of kale were made during last year at Hawkesbury Agricultural College, and several of the State Experiment Farms.

Pottsj procured from New. Zealand, in March, 1910, some seed of a1 "mar- . row cabbage," a French cattle fodder plant, which, in New Zealand, was reported to. give ex-ioitent results,in official tests. .The New Zealand Department of Agriculture informed us that the plant'was Chou Moeliier.

SCOUR 'IN CALVES. Dairymen throughout the State have suffered mucli loss through calves contracting diarrhoea,' or scour.

RAILWAY EXTENSION. BILLIMARI TO BROKEN HILL. V. Via Warraderry, Forbes, and Euaba\x=req-\ " : 'v long. - In a recent issue we re-published an important article bearing on the proposed Grenfell to Goolagong railway., A much bigger proposal is outlined'in a letter contributed to the "Sydney Morning Herald" very recently, as follows— Some weeks ago an article appeared in your columns dealing with the proposed railway extension from Grenfell, along the Goolagong-road, through the Warraderry country. Subsequently a further article was published by you, pointing out the advisability of grave consideration of this ! proposition—not because of its lack of merit, but because of the fact that, in considering the Warraderry proposal, another in the shape of the Canowindra to Eugowra extension, via Goolagong, must also be considered, owing to its proximity to, at one point, the proposed terminal point of the Warraderry line. As one who knows - the country through which both, lines should pass, ...

THE COMPULSORY CAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
THE COMPULSORY CAMPS. • some misconception has occurred," states Senator Pearce, "regarding those persons over the age of 18 years who are liable for compulsory military training, and who should go into the citizens' forces of the Commonwealth on July 1 of this year. It should be understood that such persons will during the next financial year, between July 1, 1912, and June 30, 1913, have to go into camps of continuous training. This necessity to train will apply this year, however, only to those persons between 18 and 19, and not to all persons between the ages of 19 and 25 years. Employers should be fully seized of the fact that the Act this year applies only to those persons between the ages of IS and 19 years. Next year those persons between 19 and 20 years will be liable for service in camps, and so on: until in five years' time all persons liable , for training, who are between tne ages of IS and 25 years will each year onward be required to attend camps of continuous trainin...

THE RIFLE. ,,MAJOR M'DONNELL COMPETITION. In this competition, for which the prize is a match rifle presented by Major M'Donnell, and trophies presented by Messrs A. J. Baldock and Jos. Murphy, the conditions are that two shoots will be held over three pairs of ranges, viz., 200 and 300 yards, 500 and 600 yds, and 300 and 600 yards. The first shoot over j these ranges has been completed, and for the second shoot over them the riflemen are re-handicapped. Another condition is that a marksman's four best scores may be taken to make up his aggreg.ate for the prize, and as Mr F. Crippen has 196 to his credit, with Constable J. Jenkinson next with 188, and Captain Bates 185, J. Fielder 178, and A. M'Dou\x=req-\ gall 176 to follow, it looks a good thing for Mr Crippen, because he can now, with his strong lead, and his choice of his best score out of the three remaining shoots, only lose by collapsing on three occasions, which is improbable, though possible. Following are the handicaps for...
