SHOPPING SUGGESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
SHOPPING SUGGESTIONS. .Messrs. David Jones find Co. keep this especial corset, and it is one of the most popular, not only for its price, S/'n — for that goes without saying — but for its make and general style it cannot be sur passed by the most expensive. Wiengarten's Erect 'Form W.B., «S/i i post free. It is of strong white coutille, medium low bust and extended hips, and to get the utmost from these extended hips there is a double set of suspenders attached to each pair, one at the side and one in front. Whilst in the underlinen department, 1 would like to mention the white under skirts at 7/6 each. Since Messrs. D. Jones introduced them at this very low price, they have had a wonderful sale. The skirt itself is of fine soft calico, full and well cut, and has a deep flounce of lawn, with several wide and narrow tucks and edged with real torchon lace. Just add up the cost of calico, lawn, and lace, and see if 1 am not right in urging this as an undoubted bargain. Pyrenees Wool Dr...

WACCA P.P. BOARD ELECTION. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — 1 hrough the columns of our paper I wish to call the attention of the branch secretaries in the Wagga Wagga Pastures Protection Board District to the action of the Wagga branch of the Farm ers' and Settlers' Association in choosing a candidate to contest the election for one director, now vacant, on the abovemen tioned Board. The wish of the Wagga branch is, and also of the nerson selected (E. Crouch). that only one member of the F. and S. Association shpuld run as a candidate. Should more than one be nominated we suggest that some arrangement should at once I^e I made to select one candidatelfrom those nominated ; and then ask the mem bers to go solid for that one, whoever lie may be. We wish to call the attention of the members to the fact that any person nom inated can withdraw before three days after the nominations arc declared, viz., the 30th day of May. EDWD. CROUCH, Secretary. Wagga Wagga Branch.

CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES ON TOPICAL SUBJECTS. THE HARVESTER QUESTION. PRIMARY PRODUCER VERSUS MANUFACTURER. "CYPHER" AND HIS CRITIC (W. A. EWERS). [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
I— CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES - ^ ON TOPICAL, SUBJECTS. £=5=555= THE HARVESTER QUESTION. PRIMARY PRODUCER VERSUS MANUFACTURER. 'CYPHER' AND HIS CRITIC (W. A. EWERS). In the 'Farmer and Settler' of 9th in stant appears a letter from the indefatig able Nat. B. McKay, in which he takes exception to 'Cypher's' strictures on the selfish and suicidal tactics of certain Aus tralian manufacturers — tactics' which could only result in bringing the protec tionist cause, which thev profess to have at heart, into contempt. Mr. McKay is so accustomed to levying tribute on the reading space of interstate newspapers, from motives the reverse of disinterested, that he cannot understand that anyone may write from motives dif * ferent to his own. It will, therefore, be news to him to learn that so far from 'Cypher' being 'employed, or inspired by1 the American combines.' ; he has no personal knowledge whatever cither of the American Combine or the Australiancum American Combine, which was broken up by the ...

A CHINESE WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
A CHINESE WEDDING. A Chinese wedding would appear to the English people more like a funeral than a wedding, as the ceremony is con ducted in a very slow and solemn manner ; there is no talking done, but a great deal of crying. After the presents are given the bride is dressed in a red gown, and her eye lashes are painted black, while she wears a red veil fastened to a scarlet headgear, with pearls hanging from her forehead. She is then led to a table where a feast is spread, and all her guests are seated, but perfect silence follows, and nobody eats anything. Presently the mother starts crying, followed by the maids and the bride also. Then the bridesmaids leave the, room, and the unhappy mother takes her place by the chair of state- where the bride sits. Finally the bridegroom enters with four of his friends, who pick up the throne on which the bride sits, and form a pro cession round the room, headed by the bridegroom, to indicate that he is taking her away to his own home. To clo...
EYELET-HOLE EMBROIDERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
EYELET-HOLE EMBROIDERY. Lately there has been a great revival of the eyelet-hole embroidery which was so fashionable at the beginning of last century. Now, that does sound a long way away, but after all it is only a few years since we ourselves lived in the last century. All fliintrs fashinrmlilp arp vpir nlrl.fnili. ioned. It is so truly in dress, needle- I work, etc. Old styles are revived, and I thus become ''new.' . I Wheat-ears and marguerites make the 1 most effective patterns for this embroid ery, and can be worked out solely in white cotton or in both silk and coloured 7 j cotton. I The eyelet-holes are formed by cutting a slit in the oval which indicates a petal of the daisy, or one of the wheat-ears. The edges are then turned back, and the oval top sewed. Great retrularitv must be observed in the top-sewing ; any roughness would spoil the whole. The rest of the work is stem-stitching with slant satin stitch for I the leaves. If there are any butterflies in- I dicated in th...

Amongst the correspondence was a let ter from the Minister for Works, as fol lows : — 'You have evidently misread the reason for the allotment of [£40,000 by the riumiBi. it mciucies an cne roacis in tne State, and many other things as well, and there is, therefore, not nearly ,£40,000 to be divided for the. roads alone. However, as far as Kyogle is concerned, I have al ? ready spent on the roacis in the Casino and your district ,£14,900, an amount largely in excess of any other district, and, further than which, I have now in course of being reported on many other applications. I can assure you there are applications from Kyogle and surround ing districts that would take all the ,£40,000, and then there would be applica tions for more, the simple reason being that you are living in a rich country with a large rainfall, w...
