At Glen Innes courthouse last, week a conference was held between delegate from the Tenterfield, Glen Innes, and Armidale stock boards. The important features of the conference was tho strik ing of a uniform rate of bonus for scalps. It was decided to recommend at the next conference, to be held in Sydney in July, [tuat a tax of £10 be placed upon stal lions advertised to stand the season, it being contended until some tax was im posed the breed of horses n ould continue to deteriorate. It was affirmed that the Gove -nment should more liberally sub sidise the various boards in the state, as vacant Crown Lands form a breeding ground for noxious animals. Reference was made to the charges for the convey of live stock from the table-land to Syd ney, and it was decided to support the Fanners and Settlers' Association in an endeavour to have the rate reduced. Owing to the destruction of sheep by dogs, it w is agreed to get members of Parliament to support the passing of a more stringent l...
That Railway Proposal. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 17 May 1901
That Railway Proposal. In regard to this imminent depart- j mental error, viz., the junction of the proposed Cowra-Canowindxa railway with the Orange-Forbes lino at Gregra, we add to our protect in our last issue, as an argument against, this fact, it will pay Cargo storekeepers and other big buyers better to haul their stuff by team from Orange rather than have it carried round via Molong, Gregra, and Cudal. In the face of this fact we ask : is the Government justified in constructing a line which, while depriving numbers of settlers of thsir rights, alfo deprives the people they represent of a certain income from the locality it is proposed to pass by ? Oronge men to your guns ! — 'Orange Leader.' [^Another ' ?

Tennis Hatch. A very enjoyable tennis match took Elace on the local court on Saturday last etween the Canowindra Club and tha of Lockwood. Play was commenced at about 1 1 a.m. and continued till about 1.30 p.m., when an adjournment was made for lunch which was provided on ihe ground, very generously, by the local ladies, to whom the thanks of the gentlemen is due. The play was very good all round, though tho court being new, and therefore a trifle ' bumpy ' proved somewhat of a handicap 1o the visitors. At four o'clock, on the con clusion of play, rgfreshments were again partaken of. Mr. F. Craven, captain of the visitors, before taking his departure, thauked the home team for the very pleasant day spent, and expressed a hope that many such would be enjoyed 'in the future. Mr. Kirkland, captain of tho Canowindra club, responded in like strain. Mr. P. Kenny officiated as umpire and deserves groat praise for the manner in which he carried out his duties.

Something Worth Knowing. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 17 May 1901
Something Worth Knowing. To transfer nowspaper engravings to wood : Take a piece of wood such as pine, and get a good smooth surface on it by planing, glass-papering, etc., being very careful not to leave any wooliness or scratches on its surface after sand papering. Next polish the surface well with ordinary white French polish, but do not finish off with spirits as in the ordinary course of polishing. The next stop is to lay the picture on the wood, print side to the polish. With a piece of sponge dipped into methylated spirits brush over the back of the paper, being sure it is well saturated, see that there are no air bubbles left under it. Put aside for a time till all the spirit has evaporated, and the paper is quite dry, when it will be found securely fastened to the wood. To get rid of the paper it must be gradually rubbed away with wacer, using the tips of the fingers or a piece of soft indiarubber, until the picture appears equally distinct over the whole surface, at which ...

Holding Back the Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 24 May 1901
Holding Back the BSilk. According to Professor Stewart, the following is the explanation why cows ^sometimes hold back their milk. The ?production of milk is due to a nervous action of which the glandular substance ?of tlie udder is broken down into milk 'whenever the -sow is influenced by suffi ?cient excitement of the right kind. It depends upon tne construction and lunc 'tion of the udder just as much as- the sections of other glands do, which we know are wholly subject to a set o£ 'nerves controlling this distinct function. 'The udder is not a mere vessel for hold ing milk that is supposed to be secreted ?continually and gathers in tho udder, as one may suppose a constant dripping of any fluid would fill any other receptacle. 'On the contrary, it is a gland, made up -ofeuluLii- substance, which grows by the ?separation from the blood of the sub stance required; when it has attained Snaturitv, or when the necessary nervous action occurs, it breaks down into a ?special product — n...
