J. Maloney, the secretary of the Forbes Jockey Club, forwarded to ns (Orange Exchange) a fine photograph of nine splendid stacks of hnj', roughly estimated to contain 160 tons, which were har vested from their course-this season. Conntiy clubs would be well advised . to cultivate their courses instead of leasing them for agistmen-t purposes, which, to say the least, hardly re turns sufficient coin to keep the out side fence in repair. The money raised by this means could be em ployed in reducing the overdrafts which so many of onr clubs are bur dened with, and in erecting buildings so as to bring the courses into line ■with the more affluent in the larger " centres.

STATE FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916

STATE FARMS. In reply to questions in the House, the Minister for Agriculture stated that 12,000 acres had been sown -with wheat at Woodlands last year, from which 2300 bags of grain had been harvested. Owing to the low rain fall (9:\ inches for the year) the crop was very patcl^, The area cut for ha}r could not be exactly estimated, as it had to be cut in patches. The tetal amount of hay was 400 tons. No permanent officers were on the staff, but about 60 casual and tem porary hands were employed during the season. The sum paid in wages was £1090. At Trangie farm about 1100 acres were cultivated. The portion stripped for grain yielded 15 bushels per acre, and between 27 and 28 cwt. par acre from the portion cut for hay. One permanent and 14 casual hands were engaged at Tran gie, the amount paid in wages being £277. At Nyngan farm 622 tons of BH^gted hay are staoked, and 470

TRAFALGAR SOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916

TRAFALGAR SOLD. The attraction which drew the large majority of those present at the Melbourne-'blood-stock sales was the ux-cbampion Trafalgar. The entrance to the ring of the celebrated son of Wallace and Grand Canary was the signal for a round of applause.' He started at 300 guineas, and the . bid ding advanced by leaps and bounds until 7,500 guineas were reached, at which figure, after a slight pause, the chestnut was knocked down to Mr, Allan McFarlane, of -Wellington Lodge, South Australia. This price constitutes a record for Australasia for any horse sold by public auction. Carbine's price, 13,500 guineas, is the record figure paid for a horse in Aus tralasia, but he was sold privately to the Duke of Portland.

Some of the rest are using .weapons designed over a quarter of a century ago, whilst others arc lighting with firearms introduced ome -years befoj'e Kruger decided to try con tusions with tiie forces of The Empire. It Is not too much to say.'that Germans, French, .Austrians and Russians alike are using tools which any commercial house would have re garded as obsolete years ago, and there is no •doubt that the chief characteristic of this war, which is the great superiority of artillery •over, infantry, is due to the fact that the, -former is the modern production of up-to-date nuachiue works, whilst the latter is armed with •weapons which arc practically obsolete.
