THE CULCAIRN SHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
THE CULCAIRN SHIRE. The boundaries of the Culcaim Shire, as they concern Henty, aro a source of great injustice, and liavo provoked bitter comment and pro test. Action taken so far Las not been successful, but it will be sui cidal for the residents not to cou ? tinue their agitation for redress. The pachydermatous Government is in variably impervious to anything less than au unremitting assault. To be satisfied or beguiled by the usual stereotyped evasions is fatal, and it is of the utmost urgency in the in terests of the town and district that prompt action is taken immediately. Having in viow the steps already taken, it would appear advisable to call a meeting of residents and ap point a deputation, a combination of the strongest men available, and despatch them to Sydney empowered to secure a definite answer, and, if possible, satisfaction from tiie author ities. The help of the local mem ber, Mr. Ball, should be enlisted, and the strongest caso presented. There will be no diffic...
BENEFIT FROM READING. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
BENEFIT FROM READING. If you want to derive any benefit from what you read, after finishing a book or article, before turning your attention to other things, give two or three minutes' thought to the subject that has just been presented to your mind; see how much you can remem ber concerning it; and if there were any new ideas, instructive facts, or points of especial interest that im pressed you as you read, force your self to recall them. It may be a little troublesome at first until your mind gets control and learns to obey your will, but the very effort to think it out will engrave the facts deeply upon *he memory — so deeply that they will not be effaced uy the rushing in of a new and differ ent set of ideas; whereas, if the mat ter be given no further consideration at all, the impressions you have re ceived will fade away so entirely that within a few weeks you will be totally unable to remember more than a dim outline of them. Form the good habit, then, of always reviewing wh...
BACON PRODUCTION IN DENMARK [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
BACON PRODUCTION IN DENMARK Professor G. £1. Day, of the Ontario Agricultural College, writes as follows on Danish methods:— During the past summer it was my privilege to visit Denmark, which has become so noted for the excellence of its butter, bacon and eggs. So far as my mission was concerned, I was in terested mainly in the question of bacon production from the farmer's standpoint, and devoted nearly all my time to this question. I presume that every one knows of Denmark's im portance in the production of bacon for the British market. Denmark is a country ol extensive farming. Every available foot of ground is under cultivation. Cattle are not allowed to roam at will and trample down the pasture, but are either tethered in the field or fed in the stables, and I even saw sheep tethered to stakes and disconsolately tugging at their ropes. As for the pigs, they are not tethered, but are kept closely confined, except the breeding sows, which are given a rather limited amount of exer...
WHY BANDS HELP MARCHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
WHY BANDS HELP MARCHING. All men who have any appreciation of music feel prompted to step in time to a march-tune, and music on the march, therefore, substitutes a new and pleasanter stimulus to exertion for the monotonous and somewhat dreary one of keeping place in the ranks. It is well known Hint weariness is, aB a rule, more a matter of mind than of body, and that the muscles of the body do not tire bait so soon as the nerve-centres which move them. Music, by bringing a fresh nerve centre into play, will often banish all sense of wearlnesB, and will even sometimes afford needed rest to the usual nerve-centre, so that when the music ceases the soldier feels fresher than before It began.
WORKING CLOTHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
WORKING CLOTHE6. Men and women are obliged to la bor; they must dress according to their work, and that Is as it should be. Men are not expected to groom their horses in a. mauve-colored summer suit and French kid boots, neither are they expected to sit down at table in the same clothing they have worn in the stables, thereby making them selves offensive to all lovers of clean liness. Neither would we have the wife and mother look like a harlequin on dress parade. If she has dirty work to do she can wear a neat print dress, have a large apron which is easily removed, and it costs but a trine to put a white linen collar around the neck, and a ruffle or cuffs in the sleeves, and these trifling additions brighten a plain face, and make the wearer much more presentable and attractive. The woman who heeds little details in dress will never be under the hu miliating necessity of making worse than useless excuses when unexpec tedly surprised by strangers, for she is always dressed for comp...

IS LIFE WORTH LIVING [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
ISLIFE WORTH LIVING (By 'Philo.'') Tq almost everyone theit occur limes vhen the question nhelher'Jife is worth living tUrnrts iteelf upon tbom, but there are fortunately, very few who come to a negative conclusi.in and decide to anticipate nature by hurrvuif}: ' bchiud the veil.11 To those in the possession of buoyant healt-h the question occurs but seldom, but there are so many people who are never in thorough health, and others who suffer from pain an.d sickness, that to them— the far larger class— the vital question jb apt to intrude itself with persistency. It is remarkable now many people suflcr from pain end sickness *which they could readily be cured of if they were aware of the pause of their trouble. Of course there are diseases which cannot be cured, but such disorders as rheumatism, gout, neuralgia, lumbago, backache, sciatica, blood disorders, atuemia, .indigestion, biliousness, jaundicr» sick Headache, general debility, gravel, stone, bladder troubles and Bright's dise...
Surgeons on Smoking. VIEWS FOR AND AGAINST CANCER THEORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
Surgeons on Smoking. VIEWS FOE AND AGAINST CANCER THEOEY. * Several famous Chicago surgeons have issued a terrible warning to smoking mankind. They eee can cer lurking in the bowl of that extra pipe ; they see it stamped on the band of that fat cigar ; they see it in the slender shade of the insidious cigarette. But Ihe world of medic ine is far from agreed on the subject of smokinc causing cancpr. 'It is very difficult to give an opinion on the subject,' said a fam ous London surgeon to a newspaper representativerecently. ' A man may come to me with malignant disease of the throat and mouth. He has never been seen without a pipe, and his friends say : ' I told you so ' But people forget that many non-smokers develop cancer. X saw a patient this morning, who is 40 years old, aud has casually avoided tobacco all his life, believing that iu consequence he would escape this universal curse. He had cancer of the tongue, and I could only give him a few months to live. There is no doubt, ...
TO KEEP YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
TO KEEP YOUNG. Keep in the sunlight; nothing beau tiful or sweet grows or ripens in the darkness. Avoid 'Tear in all its varied forms of expression. It is the greatest enemy of the human race. Avoid excesses of all kinds; they are injurious. The long life must be a temperate, regular life. Don't, live to eat, but eat to live. Many of our ills are due to overeating, to eating the wrong things, and to ir regular eating. Never look on the dark side: tal;e the sunny. views of everything: a sun ny thought drives away the shadows. Be a child; live simply and natural ly, and keep clear of entangling alli ances and complications of all kinds. Cultivate the spirit of contentment ; all discontentment and dissatisfaction brings ago-furrowB prematurely to the face. Form a habit or throwing off before going to bed all the cares and anxieties of the day — everything which can pos sibly cause mental wear and tear, or deprive you of rest.
THE COOK'S POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
THE COOK'S POINT OF VIEW. The wife of a well-known officer in the Navy recently advertised for a cook. Though the establishment pie sided over by the officer's wife is in accord with their undisputed social position, yet it is by no means pre tentious, for the naval man has no means aside from his salary. Consequently when one applicant for the position of cook announced lo the wife that her price would be £?') a month she was told that such wages were out of the question. The coo];, not deigning to notice the remark, went on at length to give her superior qualifications, touching especially on her ability to get up smart luncheons and dinners. Again the woman of the house said that she would not pay £3 for a cook. Seeing that her determination was unalterable, the applicant for the place prepared to take her departure. As she was nearing tbe door she remark ed, patroniaingly: 'I see! You arc trying to live witbin your income.'

About 90 were burnt. The heaps were cleared around for a few feet. All tbe wheat could have been saved if anyone bad been there when the fire came.

WOMAN'S WORLD. TRUE MOTHER LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
WOMAN'S WORLD. TRUE MOTHER LOVE. Mother love is supposed to be a won derful thing. It is said by sentimen talists to be the most 'unselfish of emotions.' It certainly should be But is it? There arc scores of 'loving and de voted mothers' who consciously or un consciously train the minds of their children to desire money, position, and social power. The thoughtless, foolish ambition of many a mother to have her daughter 'a belle,' and to have her outshine otber girls has spoilt what might have been a splendid character. Again, the slavish, weak devotion of a mother to a daughter's whims and desires froti childhood to womanhood helps the girl to be spoilt The only mother love which is de serving of respect is that which causes the mother to think always of the de velopment of her child towards the highest ideals of manhood or woman hood. No matter bow poor a mother may he, she can implant in the mind of her daughter tho ambition to be a fearless ly honest and true woman: and this, eve...
Corowa Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
Corowa Water Supply. A special meeting of tbe Borough Council was held last night, when there were present, Aldermen Piggin, Thompson, King, Lewis, Ritchie, Sammons aud Cbivell. In the absence of tbe Mayor, Aid. Piggin was voted to tbe chair. The meet ing which was in connection with tbe operations being conducted at the trial shaft was called on the requisition of Aid. Cbivell and Litehie. AW. Ritehio moved that the De partment be written to through Mr. Ball, and asked to tease work at once on the trial shaft, and proceed with tbe permanent work. The motion was seconded by Aid. Chivell and supported by Aid. Thompson, King, Lewis, and Sammons on the ground that it bad been proved the supply was satisfactory, and the present work was beiug badly conducted, and a waste of money. Aid. Piggin strongly opposed the motion, us !::- considered it had not been provt-l that the supply was satisfactory, and the opinion of tbe Chief Engineer who wished to have this trial made was more valuable ...
TO LIVE HAPPILY TOGETHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
TO LIVE HAPPILY TOGETHER. If people are to live together, (hey must not fancy, because they are thrown together, that they are to be of the same mind. Men who do not ox pect the outer world to agree with them in all points are vexed at not being able to drive their own tastes and opinions into those they live with. Not to interfere unreasonably with others, not to ridicule their tastes, not to question and requestion their re solves, not to indulge in perpetual com ment on their proceedings, and to de light in their having other pursuits than ours, arc some of the rules for living happily together, and are all based upon a thorough perception of tbe simple fact that they are not we. If .you would be loved as a compan ion, avoid unnecessary criticism upon those with whom you live. It would be hard for a man to live with another who was always criticising bis actions, even if it were kindly and just criti cism. Another rule is not to let familiarity swallow up courtesy. Many of us hav...
MEETING OF FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
MEETING OF FARMERS. A meeting couveued by the Fann ers and Settlers Association was held in the School of Arts the same after noon, when about twenty five farm ers attended. The Mayor (Aid. T. Parkin) occu pied the chair, and called upon Mr. McKenzie to move tbe first resolu tioa. ? Mr McKenzio moved — ' That tins meeting requests that portion of the Travelling Stock Reserve be thrown open as Suggested by tbe Pastures Protection Board.'1 . As it existed at present it was impossible for stock to get any show, as the adjoining holder who leased it kept it stocked down. Then there were millions of rabbits on the reserve, which were coining in and eating out tbe ad joining holders, destroying crops, wheat, vineyards and grass. He could not understand tbe action of the convenor of the other meeting in going against his own interests. There must be some sinister reason for bis action, as bis paddock adjoin ing the reserve only went two bush els, while the other went seven. And he was in ,...
SHEEP FARMING. WOOL-CLASSING FOR SMALL MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
SHEEP FARMING. WOOL-CLASSING FOR SMALL . MEN. In giving advice to small sheepfar mers as to classing and baling, Mr. Halle, the State Government expert, says: — In small clips so much subdivision Is not necessary as in the case of lar ger clips. If the sheep are of one breed, say merino, all that is required'' to be done is to test tbe staple: Take, or rather draw, not pull out a staple from the fleece; take each end of the staple in the thumb and forefinger of each hand, stretch it out, and test its strength. It strong and of good char acter and quality, put that fleece In the first combing; if strong, and of low quality and discolored, put it in the second combing; If tender— that is, if the sheep has suffered from want of food or water, and the wool is badly grown— modern machinery will, never theless, comb wool an Inch long. How ever, all fleeces having a staple under 1% inches should be placed In the 'clothing.' If no short or tender wool is in the flock, first and second combi...
PROMOTING LONG LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
PROMOTING LONG LIFE. 'Nowadays,' said a medical man, 'long life is becoming more and more a question of mental health and 'fit ness. The strong mind, even when allied with a defective physical frame, will often outlive those whose vigor Is purely physical. 'Only In modern times have we be gun to realise to what an extent the brain controls, sustains, and vitalises the body. This is why to-day we see men of seventy and eighty years ac tively engaged in business life, and in many instances quite youthful in their ideas and mental energies. I could give you a dozen instances off-hand. 'The fact Is, that in.the higher nerve centres evolution goes on later in life; in fact it is possible that with increa sing menial development centenarians will eventually become plentiful. At present however, brain and nerves are often too hardly worked, Bud thou sands meet with a premature death as a result'
