The church choir con- | tests were won by Blayney and Mill- j thorpe, respectively, while the chief choral contest went to Oowra- Many of the competitors displayed, marked musi cal ability, and the adjudicator, Mr. Frank E. Down, of Sydney, found diffi culty in separating the contestants in several instances. Revs R. H. Kelly and H. Murphy, were judges of elocution. The idea of promoting the competi tions originated with Mr. E. J. Dann, who suggested the issue of sixty £1 debentures, to ensure financial stability to the project. The idea was no sooner mooted than the whole of the deben tures were subscribed by the townspeople who displayed a patriotic spirit which i migh...

Clearing Sale. A clearing sale of course means every thing has to be cleared.

Successful Milking by the L.K.G. Machines. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 April 1911

Successful Milking by the L.K.G. Machines. Unsolicited, we are continually receiving expressions of appreciation from the many users of the L.K.G. Milking Machines. Frequently users of these machines when writing to us on other subjects, will say: "You will be pleased to hear the, milking machines are still giving ov§ry satisfaction." Sometimes the writer will say: " I would rather give up dairying altogether than be without the L.K.G. Milking Machines." It is really surpris ing how well users are getting on with the milking machines, considering that many of them have never had anything to do with machinery previously. There is only j an odd porson occasionally who does not ! obtain complete success with the milking . machines, and the fault will be found, not in the machines themselves, but in the I person's ? method of working. Of course there are few people who never make a success of anything, but fortunately for i the welfare of the State, they are in a very great minority. Th...

POULTRY. WELL-BALANCED RATION. NECESSARY FOOD. AN INTERESTING VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 April 1911

POULTRY. WEMj-BALANCED UATIOX. : NECESSARY FOOD. AN . INTERESTING VIEW. We hear much about a bahvnced ra tion. What does It mean? Someone has said it means to the animal much the same that a square meal means to man, and that is not a bad Illustration. We would not consider a meal of pota toes, even with butter, a square tneal; neither <i meal of beef alone without potatoes or their equivalent, but the two or three together would be u square meal, and, like a balanced ration, it contains all the food elements necessary to sustain life, and in about the right proportion. We all know from experi ence (says Mr C. Xisson In the "Live Stock ^Tribune"), that we obtain differ ent results from different foods, but we do not always know why. Here it is that the agricultural che mist has come to our assistance, and it ..,1s ramjli due to him that we are able to feed intelligently and know beforehand what results we may reasonably expect. Yet we do not avail ourselves of this knowle...

The Lilliputians. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 April 1911

The Lilliputians. Mr. Tom Liddiards's famous Lilliputians appeared in tho Cen tennial Hall on Monday evening in tho pantomime " The old woman who lived in a shoe." The company came to us with flattering reports from the various capitals where they . had played to packed houses, and in the expectation local playgoers were not disappointed. Good houses and en thusiastic audiences greeted the com pany. The training of so many juveniles must necessarily entail a great deal of time and patience, and the manner in which they carried through the parts allotted to them was, while a credit to the performers, a credit to their coach. Miss Lily Clark as Jack Dauntless, and Miss Dorothea Liddle as Jill were particularly well received as was also Miss Nellie McGuire as Queen Fortune. The comic element was by no means lacking as Miss Yera Bromley as the poor lone widow, Masters Willie Howard as Squire Uglymug, and Neal Connelly as Silly Billy were quite capable of upholding their casts.

BEEKEEPER. VALUE OF HONEY. HOW IT IS ASSESSED. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 April 1911

BEEKEEPER, VALUE OF IIONEY. HOW IT IS ASSESSED. : "The. value, of hohey," writes Mr T. E. Whitelow In the South Austi'alian Jour nal of Agriculture, "from ft commercial standpoint depends on a combination of the following characteristics - color, flavor,-density, condition, and aroma, ^numerated in the order of their import arice. Appearance and taste are the principal points by which the value of honey is fixed. In Ranging the value of honey as a food, the inferior grades are often quite equal, and in some in stances are superior, to those in the higher grades; but the fact that they are dark and have not such excellent flavors renders their value much less on the market. Good work can be done by blending, if it is done judiciously and certain important points observed. As a general rule, the Improvement of dark honey by the addition of a light honey is not a practical business propo sition. The blending of two honeys equal in color, one of which has a poor flavor, will often Impro...
