GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 24 June 1910
GLEANINGS. A kind word of sympathy is often a greater boon than money. The happy girl is she who tries to make others happy around her. If everyone practised what they preach, what a different world this would be! A girl cannot do much good or evil' to others without doing much good or evil to herself. Grasp- the trifling affairs of ordinary daily life, if you want to do good—don't wait for any special opportunity. Keep clcar of personalities in. general conversation. Talk of things, objects, thoughts. The smallest minds occupy themselves with personalities.. ,
HOP-FIELD ROMANCE. MAJOR PROPOSES TO A PRETTY HOP-PICKER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 24 June 1910
HOP-FIELD ROMANCE. MAJOR PROPOSES TO A PRETTY HOP-PICKER. The Tollbridge correspondent of the "Evening News" says:—J. am in ex clusive possession of ■■particulars of a romantic story from- the hop-fields. A City gontleman, u retired; major living in the West lCnd, not a hun dred yards from the Marble Ar.ch, while motoring with -.a party, of friends through the hop gardens'; in the parish of Gapel, near Tonbrklge, became so captivated „ witli . one : of the young women pickers that ho straightway made her an offer ;of marriage, which she at once condi tionally accepted. Certain preliminaries, have to be ar ranged before any names can bo pub lished, but I sought- out the happy i younfc lody, whose personal • charm was at onco impressing, and whoso nimbleness of finger in picking the; hops was second to none in the gar den. . - - These two must have been contributing factors to the capliva tion of the major. The bride in-. em bryo . infornjpd mo in all simplicity that it was such a sur...

THE MANURING OF POTATOES. AN EXPERIMENT CONDUCTED BY W. BOWMAN DOUGLAS AT BOWMAN'S FARM, RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 24 June 1910
THE MANURING OF POTATOES. An Experiment conducted by W. Bowman Douglas at Bow man's Farm, Richmond. ) The important question of apply ing chemical fertilisers to potatoes has not received the attention it deserves from' farmers generally. So far, very little-manure lias })ecn used, and . that: little applied in a rather haphazard .way. This does not in -any ;way condemn the farm er, as it must bo confessed that a record of the potato growing for the past few years, will reveal a striking diversity - of /profit and' loss. The range of return from £8 or £q to £2 per ton, and the purchase of seed at the. higher rate ^and the sale of the produce at. the lower, when it has not paid to market the tuber, has made the whole industry prob lematical in some districts. It necessarily follows that the question of adding to the cost of raising such a crop, by the use of fertilisers, should be cautiously con sidered, and negative results in this .connection should receive as much attention as the...

THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 24 June 1910
THICK OR THIN SOWING. The quantity of seed which should be. sown depends on a number of circumstances, such as character of the soil,. its moisture, freedom from weeds, size, germinating power, age of the seed, and again on the j time of sowing, the nature of the , plant, method of sowing, depth, &c. All these factors have to be considered; but in general we think it may be said that seed is sown more often too thickly than the reverse, especially when the opcra tion is performed by hand, ft is ;a; waste, of seed, and, moreover, detrimental in so far as it tends to produce weakly plants, subjcct to disease, and also to produce cereals that " lodge," a great source of loss to cereal growers. ' A fruitful fertile soil should not be so thickly sown as a poor one; in fact, the better the soil the more may. we economise in the seed. I Cold localities require thicker sow i ing than milder districts, because t in the former much seed would probably not germinate, or "will die i off...

The writer eaid:—• The Kennel Club, the authority on all matters canine, has on its register 77 varieties of dogs, which are acknow ledged as distinct breeds, and these vary in size alone—to give only a few in \tarices—from a lady's miniature bull Mr to the massive mastifT, from the (deader Italian greyhound to the gisan •tlo Irish wolfhound, or from the cheerful 'little pocket beagle to the awesome and •majestic bloodhound. , All breeds are judged by fixed stand 'ards of points, which differ considerably ' tin details, and It is, therefore, impossible [to explain within the limits of an article 'how to tell the points of. all kinds of (dogs. .

SCIENSOCRACY. THE MANCHESTER SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 24 June 1910
SCIENSOCRACY. THE MANCHESTER SCHOOL. Manchester has produced a new school of thought which has been christened Sciensocracy. Its followers believe that in days to come the' rule of many wili be -super seded by the'-rule of science. Their first general principle is freedom of individuality. Under its sway men would regard bread and labor as the fun ■lamental religious law of life. Sciensoorats say that every man should participate in the production-oft those things of which he enjoys the fruits. . Government, they further say, exists nnly that one class may keep another in' subjection, and they advocate the adop tion of a definite, consistent ancf scien tific policy. The Conservative party exists, accord ing to the followers of the new cult, to administer the country in the interests of the rulers. The Liberals exist as a means of checking the Conservatives, while the Labor and Socialist parties seek to break down the authority of Ihe others and substitute plutocracy by a democracy w...

GOOLAGONG. A. successful ball was held here in aid of the Otttholio Chursh building fund. The nett returns amounted to nearly £10.
