SHEEP FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 5 May 1894
S H T?, P FOR FA RMERS; At a recent meeting of the Lyndoch Branch of the Agricultural Bureau, South Australia, Mr. Bueritt read a, paper on the above subject, from which wejextract the fol lowing : — 'In my opinion no fariu of upwards of 500 acres should be without sheep, and there is no i'®asoi why farms of smaller area slvould not curry sheep, if only for a supply of cheap meat. . Of course the cry at once is the expense of fencing. The expense la not so great as Que inay imagine. W ith good posts, 30ft. up to 100ft. apart, with droppers be tween (which are very cheap as compaied with wooden posts), and barked wires to keep off great stuck, you have a cheap and good sheep fence— I reckon better than all wooden posts, ou account of the droppers holding the wires tight, which prevents ihe sheep from stretching them open when^ at tempting to get' throught the feuce. Ihe main thing is to keep the most payable sheep. I advise farmers to go in for mutton-sheep ! with good vigorous const...

HOW TO OBTAIN GOOD FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 5 May 1894
HOW TO OBTAIN GOOD FOWLS. According to a great English authority the best fowls that appear in the Loudon mar kets are those usually termed Surrey aud Sussex fowls. These fowls aie speoially bred by the cottagers for. table purposes. They may be characterised as being of the old fashioned Dorking type, sometimes with, and sometimes without, the extra toe. He says : ' That for table purposes it is more advan tageous to breed crossbred fowls tli»n any variety that is now known.' The best cross is between au Indian game cock and a dork ing hen. They are very white in the feet, large, plump, aud full of quality. The Laugshaii cross may give size, and make large, hardy, useful chickens for the family, but they uever will produce a first class table fowl for the market. The cross of the Cochiu or the Brabmt with the Dorkiug, though of fair size, neither improves the quality nor quautity ql-flesh upon the breast. This cross is not Co : be compared with that of the old Eipgligtior Indian ga...
VALUE OF DRAINAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 5 May 1894
VALUE OF DRAINAGE. It is uever out of place nor a waste of time Or money to diain wet land. Without proper drainage there can be no surely successful agriculture; and in very many cases too much dependance is placed upon natural drainage. It js doubtful if there is any soil- that cannot he somewhat benefited by under drainage. If dry, the drains let in the air, from which the cooler earth abstracts the moisture to the benefit of the crop, if wet they furnish an outlet for the surplus moisture and this benefits the crop. For it is an undeniable fact that either too little or too much moisture is injurious. If too little there is no circulation of water in the soil, and the plant not only suffers from thirst, but starves for want of liquid containing available food ; if too much the plant takes up too much water, and it is too weak in nutri ment to furnish sufficient food, so the plant literally both drowns and starves. Hitherto Very little attention has heen paid to the cir culation ...
Golden Memories. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 5 May 1894
Golden Memories. Surely, yes, it really must be Jack my mate in days of yore — How it warms my heart to see that dear familiar face once more ; For it conjures »p sweet memories of the dead and buried past — Of tho days when we were reckless — days which were too bright to last ; You were then a jovial-fellow, and of good look* hail your share — (Now the silver threads are showing thr-yugh your once black curly hair) ; And your eyes are not as bright, Jack, as. they were when we were young — (Mine arn't brighter, though, than yours are, so I'd better hold my tongue. Tkmpus.kugit— how the time flies, and the sea suns come and go, Ever moving, as the streamlet's waters to the ocean flow, Leaving human wrecks behind them, palsied bands and tottering forms, As the relics of life's struggles, and its aorrowa. and its storms, We were mates in long ago, Jaok, and we saw some joyous day st When the sun of youth shone on us, and we basked beneath its rays ; And the very recollection of those...
TOPICS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 5 May 1894
TOPICS OF THE WEEK. The week so far haB not been fruitful in sensations, which is all the better for every one exeept the newspapers. Happy is the country which has no history. This, -by the way, is h happiness which is to he denied to New South Wales, if successive Govern ments can manage it. Have they not paid -certain gifted aien (o write a history of the colony, and has not a vast quantity of ' small beer' been chronicled in pursuance of this decree ? If the misery of New South Wales is proportioned to the size of her his tory the cup, of her wretchedness will be very much fuller than that, say, of the Roman Empire, when it was over-run by barbarians, or Mexico when it fell a ptey to the blood thirsty Spaniards. The vanity of our states men is fluttered by the magnitude of the public recotds compiled at their instance, and the banking account of the faithful his torian responds gratefully to the results of so much paper volume. The history of the Popes, or the decline and fall o...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 5 May 1894
EVERYONE IS ON THE LOOK OUT FOR A NEW GOLD MINE ! But as they may require to search a long time before they find one sufficiently rich to claim the 60TERNMENT - REWARD - OF - -£1000 They may find it necessary to economize, and in order that their money may go as far as possible, and the way to do so is to buy their Goods at the CHEAPEST STORE, ?And that Store, it is needless to say, is Haslam's, who is now running his business on a new system, which so far is a great success, and recent purchases made by him will be distributed among the people of the district at prices that will astonish and probably annoy those who are sticking v to the Long Credit System ; but that cannot be helped as he is determined to let the Public compare his Prices and the Quality of his Goods (which are AX) with any other House in the trade. The New Winter GrOOds are now being opened up for inspection, and those who see them will hardly be able to resist the tempta tion to buy, and more especially at the L...

Sad Fatality at Guyong. A boy named Albert Oliver May, aged 11 years, son of ftjr. George May, Guyong, met with a sad fatality on Monday. The boy, it appears, was sent to catch a horse in one of his father's pad docks, and, having Becured the animal, tied the rope of the halter round one of his wrists. The horse became restive, galloped off, and dragged thtf unfortunate boy a distance of some 260 yards alone the ground, his body swaying from one side to the other, and his head bumping against fallen trees and roots. When found he was jammed between two trees. The rope, which was not strong, snapped, thus liberating the horse, but the poor boy by this had suffered such severe injuries that all hopes of his recovery were given up. The body was much bruised, and sustained a deep wound in the back of the head. The boy was insensible when picked up and never regained consciousness, and died on Monday evening. Dr. Codrington was seut for, but he saw at once that the poor boy had sustained...
