OUR BUTTER STAPLE. Is the Industry on the Decline? Importance of Pasteurisation. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 April 1900

OUE BUTTER STAPLE. Is the Industry on the Decline? Importance of Pasteurisation The close of the Latter export season affords an -opportunity of briefly re viewing the condition of the butter industry of this colony, as well as con. sidering some cf the points which have arisen in connection with the handling and export of our mighty atom of batter fat. For some little time past; the various colonies have been vieing with each other in the comparison of figures representing the past season's work. Victoria has written her butter export third on the list of the colonies' exports. New Zealand has counted her increase by 40 or 50 per cent on the previous year, and New South Wales has revelled in records vrhich distance all previous -efforts. That the country should have made such progress is very hopeful, but the unfailing index of progress and sue-. —market price—does not provide such a happy piospect. It is difficult to realise that, with the growth of our production fourfold in five...

DRY RIVER ATHLETIC CLUB. Easter Monday Sports. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 April 1900

DEI EIVEB ATHLETIC CLUB Easter Monday SpOrts. Eastek Monday morning broke witb a biting gale, blowing from the weBt, and. many patrons of tbe athletic eporta preferred the borne quiet to the discomforts of an outing on such a day. When the time came for the first beat of the Opening Handicap, tbere could not have been more that 50 people on. the ground, and the countenances of the committee looked gloomy. Cheered by the bustling activity of the secre tary, Mr. R. J- Logan, however, tbey set to work to carry out the pro gramme, and there is no doubt that the minor events would have received readier and larger support had tbe day been favorable, but the contemplation of the shivering athletes already on the traak, was not calculated to make the public enthuse on athletios. Tbe club was unfortunate, too, in the matter of being under the expense of engaging the Cobargo Band for the day, with a view to minimising the dullness so apparent between events; and we hope their enterprise will ...

MISCELLANEOUS The London Daily Mail states that Mr. Armstrong, the huBband of Madame Melba, has obtained a di vorce in Texas, United States, on the ground of desertion. A Mahommedan hawker at Single* ton refused to aocept interest which had accrued in his post-office savings bank account, saying that to do so was contrary to his religious scrupled. By the aid of a little generalship, some high-falutin, and a lot of lobby ing;, Toby Barton hopes to get the Commonwealth Bill through the Imperial Parliament. Nine members of the House of Lords and twenty-two of the House of Commons are fighting in South Africa. George Reid is very good friends with W. P. Crick and E. W. O'Sulli. van.

MILITARY IDOLS—AND OTHERS.! (From the Sunday Times. "We are all Generals now ! laugnen Mr. Cecil Rhodes, when interviewed after the relief, of Kiinberley, and asked for some opinions on the pro--, gress of the war. And that is the fact. Moreover, the Generals not actively engaged are all better Gene rals than those that are. The news paper General -and the -General "on. the corner" are the only Generals who can conduct a war without any doubts, and without any blunders. They can see quite clearly every step that ought: to be taken, every trap that ought to j be avoided. How liiglily-placed Bri- j tish officers who are in the field can | "fall in" as they do, when everything j is so easy, is the one thing that amazes j them. But a greater military autho- j rity than most newspaper or street j critics has declared that war is almost necessarily "a series of blunders," and there is a good deal in the history of the. world to support his dictum. That British officers make blnnders is un...

OUR BUTTER INDUSTRY. (Written for the Cobargo Chronicle) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 April 1900

OUE BUTTER INDUSTRY (Written for the Cobargo Chronicle) 1 At no time since the introduction of the modern system of dairying into Australia has the industry been con fronted with a situation fraught with such serious portent as at the pre sent moment. The fact thatour butter, as % whole, haR deteriorated can no longer be denied, for we have the evidence of London correspondents and the admissions of prominent ex perts in the colonies. The question is being vigorously dealt.with by the leading newspapers in Sydney and Melbourne, and the Victorian Govern ment hftB gone the length of appoint ing a Royal Commission to inquire i»to the matter. All the evidence points to tl>e private or 'home' sepa rator being at the root of the evtl; and as there has recently been a tendency amongst our local dairymen to adopt this syitun of dealing with their milk, we feel itont^dui^ to . firaw attention to the seriousnesss of such a step. It must be patent to everybody that the success of the indust...

WHEN YOU ARE TO DIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 April 1900

WHEN YOU ABE TO DIE. The other day a German doctor, M. Richter, sent a communication to the Imperial College of Medicine of Ber lin, which has made quite a stir in Germany. He avers that by a thorough study of the organs by means of X.rays one may determine pretty exactly the length of life of a human being. It w&b known for a long time that the size of the heart, the lungs, the digestive organs, and the brain might be considered among the best conditions of longevitybut M, Richter goes still further. He holds that there exists a close correlation between the length of life and the -di mensions of the different organs, and it is upon this supposed correlation that he baBes a system supported by numerous observations and statistics. Richter admits himself that there are individual exceptions. Without those exceptions his discoveries might be considered one of the most terrible plagues that ever threatened humanity. The idea of changing the entire world into an immense troop o...

CHAPTER IL 'I wish i could get that effect again.' the man out in the cold murmured. ' It was very iovely. Just the face I have been looking for. I wonder if I could sketch it from the uiem ,rj of that glimpse. But my bauds are so namb; if I could but warm them for five minutes.' Miss Mflancy felt veiy uncomfor table ; she had always prided herself upon unselfishness, and what could it be but selfishness of the grossest sort which kept this poor frozen-out artist from the fire ha craved. It might be illegal also to monopo lise the warmth of n public tavern, she ■was not sure.

The sort of Men who make Generals [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 April 1900

The sort of Men who make Generals Three weeks ago I mentioned a little story related by Lord Kitchener in a home letter. It told bow the Prime Minister's nephew, Lord Edward Cecil, having taken on himself the personal responsibility r.of supplying Mafeking with four times the amount of stores thought necessary by the wisdom of the military authorities, was directly instrumental in creating the possibility of the town's long resis tance of the beleaguering Boer. A near relative of Lord Cecil, whilst con firming Lord Kitchener's story, adds something to the credit of Colonel Baden-Powell. The contractor, a mere man of business, not being quite satisfied with the personal surety of the young major for a sum estimated to reach £7000, asked for another name at the back of the bill. Baden Powell immediately adds his, pledging the whole of his private property to meet the responsibility. Previous to. this incident he had,' according to my informant, spent considerable sums of his own money...
