IRRIGATING LUCERNE [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 6 April 1925
IRRIGATING LUCERNE A bulletin entitled 'Irrigation Farming in New South AVales,' by Mr. A. N. Shepherd, II.D.A., senior agricultural instructor issued by the Department of Agriculture Now South Wales, ? contains some useful informa tion on luccu-ne growing. 'The con sistent return obtained from the pro duction of lucerne hj\y on the Yanco Experiment Farm during the last few years,' says Mr. Shepherd, 'make a study of the methods adopted at the institution worthy of consideration.' In regard to the irrigation of lucerne, 'the first application of water is given as soon as the first crop of hay is off the land in order to stimulate an early growth, and further irriga tions follow as the season requires. Generally speaking one irrigation for each cut is sufficient in the early part of the season, but as the weather gets hotter more are necessary, aver-, aging two cuttings, and the exact time when these are made must entire ly defend on the season. The practice at the experimental farm ...

BURRINJUCK WATER Mr. Chaffey (Minister for Agricul ture), referring to complaint? about water being discharged from Burrin juck Dam into the Murrumbidgee River, thereby causing inconvenience and loss of stockowners along the banks' of the 'river, has expressed re gret, and has promised that notice will be given in future when water is to be discharged from the dam. The Minister explains that at the present lime imnortant work is in progress in the. bed of the river below the dam. This work is at a critical stage, and in order to facilitate operations sluices at Burrinjuclc had been closed for some time past. Recently, owing to the continued dry weather over the Murrumbidgee irrigation area, it became necessary to supplement the flow of the irrigation canals by re leasing water from the Burrinjuck Dam. A moderate amount , of water was discharged through the .sluices* into the river. This caused a rise in the river throughout its length. The World-famous , Boomerang mouth organ at cit...

THE FARMER'S WIFE Composed by 'A Drone.' Music by 'The Queen.' i (The following has been sent us for publication, inspired -by the recent ar gument between certain men and wo 'men of Adelong.) The farmer's wife in early days got up at half past two, And shined the ploughs, and milked the cows, ? and put the prunes to stew ; I Xho breakfast for the hands she set upon the stroke of four, « And then she'd bake her bread and cake, and scrub the kitchen floor. But nowadays the farmer's wife has time tn on 11 liov n-nm ? 'Good gracious,' says the Adelong man, 'how idle she has grown.' The farmer's wife in times gone by [ brought up the calves and lambs, And sacked the oats, and fed the goats, and smoked the hickory hams ; And when she'd cooked the three great meals, she cheerfully arose, And with her chum sat down to earn. the money for her clothes; Hut now she often visits round, and gossips, like as not — , 'My goodness,' says the Adelong man, 'how worthless she has got.' | I The farmer...

MACHINERY THAT NEVER STOPS [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 6 April 1925
MACHINERY THAT NEVER STOPS It will surprise many of our read ers to learn that there are in England i machines which work continuously! night and day. These 'machines are in 1 the up-to-date works of Bell's Poilite and Everite Co., Ltd., whose offices are in Southwark Street, London. This I is the leading firm in the asbestos ce ment industry, and their never ston machinery is engaged in the manu facture of the famous products known the world over as Poilite, Everite, and Big-six. Owing to the strength of the British Portland cement used, the huge plant would 'seize up' if the wheels stopped. To prevent the in calculable damage which would be i caused by this happening, three shifts of workers are engaged for each 24 i hours work. Even with this continu ous turning of the wheels, the popular ity of the firm's products is Buch that additional 'perpetual motion' ma chines have periodically to be installed to meet the demand.

DECLARING THINGS BLACK S To put an impediment in the way 4 of any citizen's obtaining possession 5 of Ms lawfully acquired property ?| should at any time and in any circum m stances be a punishable offence. To J;: conspire and combine to do this hurt *1 ful thiiig should be made criminal.

The people are becoming tired of cargo hero and there being dcelavod 'black,' because tliero has been a squabble about handling it; porhaps thousands of miles ' away.

"TOP-HOLE" ENGLISH SOME MODERN SLANG. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 6 April 1925
'TOP-HOLE' ENGLISH I SOME MODERN SLANG. Mr. P. G. Wodehouse, who has made his home in the United States, and is a professional student of both Eng lish and American slang, explains in the 'Evening News' some of the niceties of the English tongue. 'The reason,' he says, 'why we Englishmen use the expression 'silly old ass' is . that we know there is no other phrase that gives just the fine shade of meaning which we require. If it were simply a question of sub stituting for 'silly old ass' some other and legitimate iihvnso such ns 'nnnv goop' or 'poor fish,' we would do it like a shot. But the one thing . we would rather do than eat ' is to sink the harpoon into the 'mot juste.' . I go into the Dones' Club of an after noon and look round me. What do I see? In one chair there reclines a Silly Old Ass, while beside him, suck ing down the mixture-as-bef6re, is a Priceless Old Egg. Close by I per ceive a couple of Genial Old Crumpets in conversation with a Jolly Old Pie face. To the untut...
THE COMING ELECTION [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 6 April 1925
4 THE COMING ELECTION IThe 'Cowra Guardian' prints the following political opinions gathered iu Cowra streets on Saturday night and boiled down : Loughlin is regard ed by all parties as certain to top, the poll; the other two seats are doubtful. Hugh Main has slipped, and M Treatt, another Progressive, has a | good chance of talking himself into g Main's seat. Labor is not sure of the h &ecouu seat, chiefly owing to aiscon m tent in Labor circles over the selection | ballot. Cowra Laborites wanted Mar tin (Young), Junee forced them to %?) Iload, so Cowra Laborites prom || iss to have some revenve by putting h Carney second and Hoad third on l| their ballot papers. The Nationalists have a big uphill fight, but Todhunter W- is likely to poll well, not because he is ij a Nationalist, biit because he is a gen- 1 | 3jj gwg feH&nre- '' Is
THE CROSS-WORD PUZZLE [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 6 April 1925
THE CROSS-WORD PUZZLE British opticians are giving warning that too strenuous applications to the unravelment of cross-word puzzles is not at all beneficial optically, and that too much devotion may result in cross eyedness. Armed with a fair educa tion, books of reference, books of syn [ onyms, encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc., a diligent student may be among the fortunate addict. It has been our intention to construct a cross word puzzle ourselves, after the man ner of an old correspondent of ours, who wrote his 'copy' in plain and' simple language and then ransacked the dictionary for sesquipedalian sub stitutes, but feel that we must for bear. A commencement was to have been made with 'valetudinarianism,' but our satisfaction with that mon strosity was squelched when a friend happened along with 'Thcsaurochry- Bonicochrysides,' meaning, broadly, he who loves to store up gold, to accumu late filthy lucre, otherwise a miser.
WHEN SHOULD A WOMAN TAKE OFF HER HAT? [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 6 April 1925
WHEN SHOULD A WOMAN TAKE OFF HER HAT? I have, oi'.ten been asked that, and it is a very difficult question to an swer. Certainly you should take your ].at oil when every other woman pre sent has hers off, no matter what the function or occasion should be. At luncheons even in private houses it is i sometimes the custom to keep your hat on throughout the meal and for the rest of the afternoon, either in the garden or at bridge. If of course you go to a place and are shown into the dressing or bedroom where the other guests have been through and you see their hats there, take your own off but vm-- nnlpHB. You look just OS foolish with your liat off if everybody else has theirs on, as you do if you have yours on, and others have theirs off. Generally speaking hats are worn at all morning and afternoon functions, and it in only strictly the rule to dis card them for the dinner meal at night and thereafter. My answer to the question appears jusp a ulj-ib cvumvc i doesn't it apd seems to ...
