Bicycle Club. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
Bicycle Club. A meeting of those interested in forming a Bicycle Club is called by Mr. W. Lockwood, of the Speedwell Cycle Depot, for Saturday night, March 3rd, at the School of Arts, Henty. As there are a good many lovers of the wheel in the neighbour hood a strong club should be the result. A great drawback in the past has been the want of a cycle track. This wulprobably be overcome now by a scheme the promoter has in hand. . .
Postal Delivery at Henty. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
Postal Delivery at Henty. w ? At the local Post Office a Govern ment notice is displayed, notifying those interested that tenders arc re quired for the postal delivery of correspondence once or twice a day, within a. mile radius, including porterage of mails to and from Henty Railway Station, twice daily, tenders close March 7. This notice appears to be an answer to represen tations made by the F. and S. Asso ciation, asking the Postal authorities for a delivery of letters daily, and it appeals to the Department that the most economical way of carrying it out is by tender- Whether it will be a success or whether any tenders will be received remains to be seen. Since the Postal business has been federated, all Post Offices not col lecting a certain revenue above working expenses are worked on the same principle.
New Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
New Industry. Mr. W. Schnelle lias entered into negotiations with a thoroughly prac tical brickinaker and staried a brick yard on his suburban allotment. Tbe inducement in this line being patent to any observer, there is a bright future in store for this in dustry in Henty if they can manu facture good bricks, and no doubt good local support will lie forthcom ing. The amount of bricks that have been used here this last 12 months from Wagga alone, including railway freight, would amount to a costly sum. Bailway freight oil bricks from adjoining towns is a very serious item, which however, would be greatly iu favor of the locally made article, and of it receiv ing all the patronage which it de serves.
Change of Magistrates at Henty. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
Change of Magistrates at Henty. It has always been the custom for the Police Magistrate from Albury to adjudicate at Henty once a month, at great personal inconvenience to himself, and also those doing busi ness at the local court. Some times it would be close on 1 o'clock before tue Uourt opened, waiting tue. arrival of the goods train from Albury. Through a suggestion mode by the -present P.M. (Mr. Oslear), that it would be more convenient for the Wagga P.M. to adjudicate at Henty, coming in the moil train in the morning and departing in the after noon, tbe acting C.P.S., Mr. J. Hamilton, has received a communi cation from Mr. T. H. Wilkinson notifying that in future he will visit Henty the last Tuesday iu each month, commencing on 27th March, the Court to be opened at 10.30 a.m.
BUSH HAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
BUSH HAY. New ideas take root slowly. For years farmers and sheep-owners have been advised of the. wisdom of making und saving every possible hundred weight of bush hay, taking advantage of the abundance at times of grass and herbage and ? storing it for the bad time of scarcity sure to follow. This year it has been done in a number of districts in New South Wales, and on stations round Narrabri it is said that 200,000 tons have been thus secured and stored. Even weeds which arc ob jectionable and uneatable, when dry and the seeds ripe, make useful fodder if cut and stored whilst the sap is in, and cattle will grow fat and cows keep up their milk yield on It. In many cases the scythe has been used, hut where country is open a mower is far more effectual and economical, and when the grass has died down the land may be cleared of stones and wood in view of next year's mowing. The ma chines are made up to seven feet cut, and if it is well speeded and knives kept sharp, even the Ugat am...
PASPALUM DILITATUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
PASPALUM DILITATUM. This valuable grass must be sown when there is both warmth and mois ture to help it to germinate. Those who have not tried it should obtain their seed and so be ready for rain before the cold weather sets In. The new seed is in the market now, which will be an advantage, for paspalum seed is 'tricky,' and it not just the thing, is apt to be disappointing, be cause it ripens so irregularly and has to be shaken and gathered as It ripens, if a fair proportion of it is to germin ate; but once established it is a won derful grass for feed and for standing against hard conditions, drought, etc. On pastures, sow whilst soil is moist, six to ten pounds to the acre (if the old grass has been burnt off so much the better), and then harrow. In a cultivation paddock loosen with a disc harrow or cultivator, sow and roll or cover with a light bush harrow.
AGRICULTURE. BREED FOR A PURPOSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
AGRICULTURE. BREED FOR A PURPOSE. When farmers go to breed their mares, there is, as a rule, far too lit tle care taken in the selection of a sire. It will not pay to breed to a stallion just because he is a good ani mal, unless he will mate with the marc's nature so as to produce a colt for a special- purpose. Many farmers breed all their mares, which may be of widely differing types to the same stallion, and often he Is one that is selected because he is cheap or con venient. Every mare should be mated with the idea of producing a colt of some definite type — roadster, carriage horse, draught horse, general farm horse — anything, in fact, for which there is a special use and a steady de mand. Such horses always bring good prices, while there are always too many that arc really not suited to anything in particular. A difference of a pound in a service fee, may make ten times' the difference in the price of a colt. Above all things, he sure the stallion has vigor and sta mina.
METHOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
METHOD. Method is largely a matter of tem perament. One man will have his papers and personal belongings in so confused a condition lhat many hours are spent iu vain search for what he wants: while another can lay his hand on anything he owns in a moment. The thoughts of one will be in such disorder that they are practically val ueless, while those of another will be classified and arranged so that each one is ready for use when needed. One has a plan for his life— elastic it may be, but still a plan. Another drifts on day by day with the ever varying current of circumstances. All this may be the unconscious working out of the. natural bent of mind; yet the methodical habit, like all others, may be cultivated aud strengthened. Many city people, who are jaded with business worry and the close city atmosphere, go to a crowded tourist or seaside resort for change, when they really require a change to the real country, aud life on a farm. There are farms and farms; and from some of them...
JUSTICE IN ALABAMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
JUSTICE IN ALABAMA. In Cochrane, Alabama, the affuirs of civil justice are administered by Judge Edwards, who is also a capable and enthusiastic farmer. One cloudy spring afternoon a court was convened to try a peculiarly tor tuous aud perplexing case. Judge Edwards listened uneasily for a time, with growing unrest, every now and then casting a quick glance through the nearest window. He was ob served at last to seize a slip of paper, scribble a few words, place the docu ment beneath a heavy paper-weight, and reach for his hat.' 'Captain,' he called cheerily, 'ex- cuse me fur interruptln' you, suh; you go right on with your argument, which is a darned good one. It's suah goin' (o rain this evenin', gentlemen, an' I got to set out my potatoes right away. But you go right on, captain! When you an' the major get through you'll find my decision under this heab paper-weight.' And the door closed upon the aston ished lawyer. ?
THE EFFECT OF PLOUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
THE EFFECT OF PLOUGHING. The mechanical effect of ploughing in green crops is not in the plant food they add to tbe soil so much as in tbe mechanical effect the vegetable mat ter has upon the soil, making It more norous and enabling it to retain more moisture and retain it longer. All of our richest virgin soils arc made so by the successive growths of grass or olhcr plants, that have been incorpor ated with the soil annually for long periods of limo. Our bush lands are often more fertile than any other. They have been fed by annual crops of for est leaves and fallen timber, and also 'iy repeated rains that leave, as often as they occur, a thin stratum of sedi ment, rich in both mineral and vege table substances that help soils to grow. Vegetable. ffi&Uor being speci fically light readily rides on floating water, and when this water flows over the level expanse and evaporates or soaks into the soil, the mineral plant food held in solution and tbe vegetable matter combined wi...
THE HENTY COURTHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906
THE BENTS COURTHOUSE. r The increasing business at the _:ftw Court emphasises the neces t ty of a proper building being erec ed for that purpose in Henty. The present atwjwmodation is cruSe and' unsatisfactory. Influ enced by a false Idea of economy, the Department rent a four-roomed cottage, -which serves the dual pur pose of a Courthouse aud premises for the local police constable. This arrangement is highly unsatisfac tory both to the public and the po lice. Those having business with the Court are squeezed into a small room, the limited size of which is productive of great discomfort and inconvenience. In fact, the majo rity of the public have to stop out side. Consiaeringthattlie revenue of the Henty Court exceeds that of many neighbouring towns which are in possession of suitable buildings, it is time the local member' im pressed the Department of Justice with the necessity of erecting a proper Courthouse and offices on the land reserved for that purpose.
