POLITICAL POINTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 5 December 1913
POLITICAL .POlM'TSROa (By "Elector,") Holman is a perfect example of Mr. Facing-tWo-wavs. When he gets into the country and has an audience of farmers, he is the farmers' friend, and talks about duplications, and decentralisa tion, and bulk handlin" and vari ous other baits with wh;ch he hopes 'to hook the simple settler. He does this because he thinks the .country man swallows every thing he hears from a platform and takes all Holman's sayings as gospel. But'when this nimble witted gentleman is in Sydney he pitches quite another varn and_ it is all what he will do for the city worker if he is returned to power. It would be very funny reading to arrange Holman's city and speeches in parallel columns. Then would be seen plainly what a political humbug he is. But talk as he may, his sun is Setting, and all the'lesser satellites, Griffith, Trefle Carmichael, and Co., will disappear with him. It is a well known fact that none of them are certain of being returned at the next election, a...

SHOULD BACON IE? DEARGR. A Farmar'e - fltlulco. Addressing the members of the ! Little Plain'branch of the. Agri cultural Bureau on the subject of,: pig raising, Mr. S. Leech recalled the old adage that "half the breeding of horses and cattle goes down their throats." "It may be true of the stock referred to," said Mr. Leech, "but it is not so with ^iVs. It is the quality only that £oes down a pig's throat, and to be successful one must have breeding as well. The whole secret in raisin® pies is to get well-bred ones and keen them going without a check un til the day you send them to mar ket." —Breeds Preferred.— His own preference in the way of breeds were w for the Berk shires, Yorkshires and Tam worths, and the last-named he did not like by itself but in cluded it because he atrreed with the majority of breeders that excellent baconers were obtained by crossing Tamworths and Be'rkshires. "There is no doubt that the Berkshires are general favorites, "but it must be re membered that...
