A Disgraceful Act. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 3 May 1901
A Disgraceful Act. Last week it was reported that the gates of the local cemetery had been broken down by cattle and that it would be necessary to supply new ones. With the quantity of feed about at present, young and tender as it is, it is bard to believe that snch a thing would happen, though from the fact that for some time past it has been suspected that the ceme tery was being used as a mgnt padaock for' stock, one can understand tho pos sibility of such being the case. That cattle will lift gates off their hinges, however, is hardly to be believed, and on at least one occasion they have beci) found in that condition. _ Therefore, even allowing that in this instance the cattlo which bad been placed thero on a former occasion broke through the gates the fault lies with the guilty per son who in tho first instance committed the disgraceful act of turning them into the cemetery. The damage done to the property is less to be deplored than the fact that in this community there is a ...
Monthly Sales at Canowindra. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 3 May 1901
Monthly Sales at Canowindra. In this issue appears the first announce ment of i serios of monthly sales to bo held in Canowindra by Mr. Engone Finn, auctioneer. Iu tho past this has been odo of the worst felt wants in this dis trict — one of the best in Now South Wale3 for fat cattlo and sheep — and in j supplying the local farmers and graziors with a market at their doors Mr. Finn is doing the district one of the greatest services which it is open to receive. At j present the farmer with fats — and when onco fat it is econony to sell — in small numbers cannot readily get his stock away to market, and has to wait his op portunity for so doing or sell privately. Even if a producer sends his stock to other markets such as Orange, Bathurst, or Homebush the expenses to bo deducted from the price received reduces it to such an extent, especially with small lots, as to suggest mat regular montiuy auctions would be a boon highly appre ciated by local producers and those of the surrounding ...

Member's Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 3 May 1901
Mombar's Work. On his return from Cowra last week fho Colonial Treasurer had a long inter view with the Chief Commissioner in connection with railway matters. Mr. Waddell suggested to Mr. Oliver that the following changes take place in the runuing of the western mail trains, namety, that the first division, now run ninfr /-»n1 *r Ia 'Rofliiivct nnd on I liner nt. tilt 1 stations, run right through to Orange, and that a through carriage to Cowra bo attached thereto, which could be un coupled at Blaynoy and attached to the Cowra train. This would obviate the unpleasantness of passengers having to change their luggage from one train to another at such an early hour in the morning, especially in tho winter time. Mr. Waddell also suggested that the second division of the train which leaves Sydney at nine o'clock at night run right through to Orange without stop ping at stations, which would greatly shorten the time occupied by passengers from Dubbo, Bourke, and all stations west. In an i...

Orange Show. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 3 May 1901
Orange Show. j (By our Special Correspondent.) It was unfortunate that the weather should have been so bleak, wet, and cold during the four days of the show. The heavy rain's which fell for several days previous to the commencement of the show greatly interfered with its ' success, which promised to be the record show for Orange, as the nominations for all classes were iar in anvance oi any pre vious year. One of the main features was the excellent display of farm and dairy produce, the first pike for which was £20 the second £10 and the third £5. The competition for those prizes was indeed keen, and the display of pro duce grown by the exhibitor's was worth a long journey to see. The competitors were Messrs. C. B. Gaden of Wellington, W. J. Nixon of Therlmere, James McClymont of near Orange, and W. J. ! Baker of the Australian Manure Go. j The vast collection of farm and dairy produce shown by tnese tour exhibitors may be said to bo truly wonderful, and it was really hard to believ...

Treatment for Borers. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 3 May 1901
Treatment for Borers. The following is culled from an American agricultural journal : — An Arsentc ? Injection. — Two years ago we rented our farm for four years. When wo left our apple and peacli orchards were free from the borer and strong thrifty trees. On our return. alac, some were dead, some dving, and all Bick from the borer. A friend told us wo would lose most of the trees, so we went to work with a will, and dug and del red nnd scraned, but we probably did not understand how to do it, as lint a beggar could we get out, 60 we thought of rmnth»r scheme. Wo made a strong solution of Paris-preen, and with a fine sviinge injected the solution in every, hole, and also sprayed all around the trunk with it. I have not lost a single apple tree, and only two peach trees, nor have I any borers in a new peach or chard put out a year ago. Now, while I am constantly spraying our fruit trees, this mav keep the borers away. I am fully satisfied 1 killed all those that had taken hold by inj...
Robberies at Orange. THE DETECTIVE'S LITTLE HAUL. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 3 May 1901
Robb3rie3 at Orange. THE DETECTIVE'S LITTLE HAUL. Acting on advices supplied by Inspec tor Saunders, of the Orange Police, Detective Roclio, Brown, and Fullorton visited the Redfern Railway Station on Friday last (says the ' Eveuing News,') and waited about the parcels office for an hour or two. They wanted to meot somebody whom they expected to call for a parcel. The somebody did not turn up, however, and the detectives went home. Next day they went back again, aud this time their patience was rewarded, for two men arrived on the scene, and asked for the parcel mentioned, a harmless looking buudle, sewn up neatly in bag ging. Tho ttvo men and the parcel then accompanied the officers to the Central Police Station, where the men were charged with vagrancy. Tho parcel was found to contain over a dozon skeleton keys, a sharp. pointed knife, and other things, which the police do not consider necessary in tlie pursuit of any genuine calling.- The keys wore rusted, as though they had lain...
MONGREL AND PURFBRED FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 3 May 1901
MOXGDET, AM) rrliFBRET) FOWLS. It is onite a coram on belief in the country that mongrel fowls are quite as good as standard bred, except that the latter are more uniform in color and size, and, therefore, present a hotter ap pearance. This mistako arises from the belief that the mongrels are the more hardy of the two, and need less oaie. Tho mongrel that finds her living iu the manure heap aud in the winter sleeps in ail appte tree will live through it aud begin laying next spring, while tho standard bred fowl subjected to such treatment would freeze to death. j If we are going to keep hens without giving liidiii auy kiii a 01 care it aoes noi make a particle of difference what kind ' we keep. The chances are that under such circumstances the mongrel would be the host fowl to choose, for she does not cost much and is not worth much at any time. If we are going to give our hens good care, feed them properly and house them comfortably the standard bred fowl is the. one to choose. ' O...

The Marketing Problem. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 3 May 1901
The Marketing Problem. [By Herbert J. Rumsey.T Next to securing a good crop of fruit, the most important matter is to dispose of it to advantage, and the methods adopted at present are quite inadequate, and fre quently result in disappointment. We frequently hear it said that ' fruitgrow ing doesn't pay that so and so sent a consignment to a Sydney or Melbourne a^ent. and onlv got a return of 9d to Is per case, or, even worse than that, re ceived a bill for the freight. We com plain that Tasmanian fruit gluts the market, but if such is the case, how is it that the grower there will continue to send his fruit over, if he does not get better prices than those. His expenses in the orchard must be as heavy as ours, and although water freight is very cheap, the growers over there cannot surely all live on deep water frontages, and it is probable that many of the Tasmanian fruitgrowers have as much railway freight to pay at the start of the journey as many New South Wales orchardists, at ...
Tomato Disease. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 10 May 1901
Tomato Disease. A great many tomato-growers about Sydney have beon puzzled to notice fine healthy plants auddenly dying all at once, and during the the last week this disease has appeared on a large 6cale in the Gosford district. Specimens sent to the department have been examined, and found to be infested with the 'sleeping disease of tomato,' a fungoid disease known as Fusarimnlycopersici. The en tomologist, Mr, Froggatt, states that this is a very common disease in England, where it causes great losses to market gardeners growing tomatoes. It is likely to spread, as if the plants aro attacked when in full fruit, as is often the case, the fruit may ripen and appear, even under the microscope, to be perfectly souud, yet the seeds from such tomatoes if planted will produce diseased plants. As the fungus first attacks the roots and then comes up the stem, where it dis colors the tissue and causes the sudden death of the plant, there is no remedy for plants when once attacked ; but th...

Feeding Bacon Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 10 May 1901
3%B(Sing Bacon Pics. Tor die last year or two experiments have boon ?carried out at the Guelph and Ottawa -stations at Canada, to ascertain wh.it are the best kinds of food for the jiroduotion. of bacon, One important re sult brought out by the trials so. far as thoj liavG gone is the unsiiitability of -maize when given throughout as the sole -or principal ration to bacon pigs, though ^naize meal has been used for finishing off -vrith success at the Guelpb. station. 3$ut while the Inna 01 1000. iea to uie nog ?duriug the finishing off period is recog aiised as having «. most important in ?fluence on the quality of -he flesh, it has ?fce™ found that the firmness or softness ?of the 'jacon also depends largely upon the character of the rations given pre vious to the fattening period. The grains Tvliich Canadian pig-keepers are reccom ?snended to avoid, or to use sparingly, are (brans, buckwheat and rye, all of which. iai'e said to be prejudical to the produc ??tion of good bacon ; but...
