EXTRA HEAT FOR CHILLED CHICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 April 1912

EX TEA HEAT FOB CHIMED CHICKS. Should chickens seem to he chilled or a hit Inclined to diarrhoea, because of ex posure to damp conditions, a good effect can be secured whore they are being rear ed artificially by Increasing the heal of the brooder. The artlllcial warmth helps thein wondei'fully, Just as we know sun shine does. It will not harm chicks to raise the temperature to 95 degrees V., three inches above the floor, even when they are three weeks old. Still, the gene ral tendency should be to reduce the heat gradually. The effect of keeping it raised to such temperature is to postpone the time when the chicks can he weaned from it. Of course, if the artificial heat is to be contained too long, there is a great ten dency to make the birds delicate all their lives. So, in raising the heat for urgent cases, this should he kept in mind, und the practice must not bo abused by-any person who wishes to be mistakenly kind.

WOMEN'S CLUBS [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 April 1912

WOMEN'S CLUBS When women's clubH were first startod there was a perfect outcry in the paparn about the luxury with which 0110 of the first war; furnished, un<l as to the fact that It contained a mriokln*,'-room. Men wroto almost hysterically about thi» encournKe ment to luxurious living and idleness that clubs for our sex would certainly afford. Well, that in probably about twenty years ago, and now what are the real results? The average woman')! club is one of tho busiest centres in London. Thrcc-fourthd of the members are interested in either philanthropic or business work, and the club affords them the opportunity of un interrupted letter-writing and study of the various problems whloli their work opens- to thorn for solution. The other fourth may probably halons to the Irre sponsible portion of society, devoted to card-playing, to dress, and other light amusements.

Sydney Sporting Letter. "The Looker-on Sees most of the game." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 April 1912

BY LOOKER ON. "The Looker-on Sees most of the game." Owing to early closing of holiday malls this letter had to bo despatch ed boforo the Sydney Cup was run on Eastor Monday, Tho first day'* racing only can bo touched this week. Exactly how much merit and how much luck the Doncaster plac ings represent can never be known. In a mile dash by over 20 horses there ia niways considerable luck, but that element was increased in this year's Doncaster owing to J. C. .Williamson's True Spec dropping hit rider soon after the start and gal loping with the 24 others over the rull distance. Even with Ost 01b. on his back. True Spec was un equal to getting a place. Perhaps tho others interfered with him. Anyhow, it's certaiu ho got in tho way of several runners who carried more or less of that commodity which is so often quite wrougly quoted as being the l'oot of all evil, whereas the inordinate love and misuse of it is evil's root. The 25 starters for the Doncaster included six ladies and seven ...

Close by on the same side of the stteet is the G P.O From its tower one of the four clock diais is in view of most of the crowd mentioned Ten minutes to 10 a.m. The crowd is silent and almost motionless save that it is being added to by fresh arrivals. The clock hands have moved. The little one is at X, the big one within a hair's breadth of the centre of XLl. Among the crowd there is a swelling movement in the direction of the closed doors. The clock begins to slowly strike the hour—10. The first stroke is made, the foldifig doors swing open, as though done by the bell-stroke irom the Post Office tower.

A GREAT COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 April 1912

A. GREAT COMPETITION. The Commonwealth District Com petition at this yearns Royal Show was worthy of the somewhat ambitious name given it, though in reality it was a State competition only. It is hard to imagine, however, if districts representing the whole Commonwealth had competed, that any one of the exhibits would have beaten the winner, which came from the South Coast and Tablelands. Of a maximum of 1,000 points this exhibit was awarded 770 The Northern Rivers cartie second with 575, then followed Western District 545, New England 531, and Inverell 516. - Al though probably a public vote, if it had been taken, would have given the South Coast exhibit the ribbon, yet it required keen experts to point the directii ns in which it excelled. It is safe to say that in the public eye there was not much to pick and choose between them. Both were exceptionally fine displays, in evc;y respect worthy of the State. As for ihe remaining three, the points awarded ihem 545, 53l> and 516 re...

A GREAT HOLIDAY RESORT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 April 1912

A GREAT HOLIDAY RESORT. Fleet Week in Sydney bccame a standard by which to estimate the size of crowds. According to the casual obser vation of the man in the street no crowds of people drawn together in the metro polis were ever so large as those of Fleet Week. That was so until now, when in the opinion of the ubiquitous person in question Fleet Week has been beaten. The feature of that memorable occasion was the enormous tram, vehicular, and pedestrian trafli: tint went in the one direction to a given point, South Head. It started before daylight, and it kept moving onward for half the day. Easter traffic is of course more distributed ; for the past week swarms of people have been moving in all directions. Ninety-five thousand persons at the show on one day alone tells of its extraordinary popularity but it also gives an indication of the frvour into which Sydney has advanced as a holi day resort

FOR THE WO[?]EN AND CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 April 1912

FOR THE WO M EN AND CHILDREN. When it was announced that the Premier had cabled £r,000 to the women and children of England who were suffer ing hunger as a result of the coal strike the senior morning paper saw in his action a serious error, and Mr. \'cGowan was hauled over the coals in approved morning paper style. The argument advanced did not strike a responsive cord in the hearts of the people. It was to the cffect that the people and not the Government should have contributed, that is if the people wanted to contribute Since then the Lord Mayor's appeal to the people of Syd ney in the same cause has been fairly libeially responded to and the second thousand pounds donation (contributed by the people) has been forwarded to Eng land. The appeal has now been extended to all parts of the State, the aim being to remit £5,000, in addition to the £1,000 sent by the I'remier The Government is remitting all the money free of cost.
