AMONG THE EQUESTRIENNES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
AMONG THE EQUESTRIENNES. Some splendid exhibitions of horse manship were given in the ring at the Show. It really was an eyeopener, even co tliose used to good riding. This year the side-saddle did not reign supreme, even amongst the fe minine riders, it had a rival in the straddle seat. The latter, perchance, may be safer, but the side saddle knocks it out of sight from the point of view of grace. However, the expo nents in equestrian art, whether they rode astride or side, wore topknotch ers. Two young Tasmanian ladies, the Misses Fogg, and a Miss Burley, from Victoria, who astride their horses were a perfect revelation in horse manship, tiieir nerve and judgment fairly astounding the onlookers. Miss Julian, of Yass, and Miss Garbutt, of Albury, were also well to the front. There were 15 liorses entered, and the ladies changed their mounts fre quently. After the trials, Miss Mona Fogg, on Dimboola, Miss Kirk, 011 Sunrise, Miss Garbutt, on Sunlight, and Miss Dolly Fogg, on Young Hi...
SHOW CATTLE FROM ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
SHOW CATTLE FROM ADELAIDE. Amongst the attractive cattle at the show were some valuable ex hibits from Adelaide, the trustees of the late J. H. Angas having shipped 11 head of Shorthorn cattle and one Hereford bull for exhibition. Mr. Donald Forbes is in charge, and con siders that this year's consignment is well up to the high standard for which the Point Sturt Shorthorns are noted. Included in the shipment are Connaught 33rd, a champion winner at Adelaide and Sydney, and the beautiful white heifer Charming Ox ford 51st, champion at the last Ade laide show. The Hereford bull Lord Clare is considered to be the best exhibit of the breed sent from South Australia. He is two years and seven months old, and has an unbeaten record, including last year's cham pionship.
THE RED COATS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
THE RED COATS. A fine muster of scarlet coats turn ed out to compete for the Lindeman "Hunters' Contest," but out of all the old favourites, and the new blood, only one of the whole lot cleared all the fences and the wall without a touch, and that was good old Sun rise. A horse called Ian was much ap plauded for his flying leaps, and an other strong-limbed, wide-chested animal, named Ford Islington, also called . forth approbation. After the rounds, the judges called forth about a dozen. Cambo had one mark less than Sun rise, so the two were put to the test once more, but Sunrise did not turn to sunset, for she was not to be beaten, and so Cambo had to be con tent with the second place of honour.

THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
THE WEATHER. During the week ended April 18 some parts of tlie State received very fine falls ox rain, reaching in one case (Clarence Heads) to 602 points, hut all the coastal divisions were well supplied. Talcing the various sec tions' in the order given on the offi cial sheet, we find that with the ex ception of Collarenebri (.91) and Mogil (.0), none of the western slope centres received any rain. Narrabri (. 34s) and three other of the five towns in the north-west plains had slight rain, but tlie central western plains and Riverina towns had not enough among them to wet a hand kerchief. On the north-west slopes every town had some, ranging from 21 points at Manilla to 148 at Bun darra. The central western slopes fared not quite so well, the highest fall being at Molong, 124 points, and two of the seven towns (Dubbo and Forbes) getting none. Worse still was the record for the south-west slopes, eight out of fifteen towns being rainless, while the best fall was only 72 points (Tem...
NETTING A BOUNDARY FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
NETTING A BOUNDARY FENCE. A correspondent asks:. "Can' my neighbour compel me to pay half . the cost of netting a boundary fence? My land is C.P. and C.L. The fence in: question is not rabbit-proof, and is not passed by the local P.P: Board ?" Answer by " The Land's" solicitor : Under ' these circumstances your neighbour cannot comj>el you to pay half the cost of the fence; . You say the fence is not rabbit-proof ; sec tion 42 of the Pastures Protection Act, 1900. does not therefore apply. That section only applies .to rabbit proof fences. ]S!or does the Dividing Fences Act, 1902, apply, because you are apparently not the owner of the land you .are in possession of, but only lessee, and . even if you were the holder .'under a grant, the necessary : preliminary steps under that Act do not seem to have been taken by your neighbour.
COMMISSION ON SALE OF HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
COMMISSION ON SALE OF HORSE. A. A. A., Nevertire, writes : " A local stock and station agent adver tises an ''auction..sale and invites con signments of stock from other owners. I come along with. a liorse and. have it put lip for sale, and the best bid- is' £5. Afterwards a man (not a bidder at the sale for this particular horse) comes to me and offers me ;£6, which 1 accept, v I might state that I had taken my horse out of the yard, and was in the act of leaving, when the buyer came to me. Can the agent legally claim commission on this sale V' Answer by " The Land?s" solicitor : Your liability depends on the ques tion whether the horse was brought under.the purchaser's notice by the auctioneer or his advertisement, a-nd, it will probably be that your liability rests on what the purchaser says. If he says the liorse was brought under his notice by the auctioneer or his advertisement I think you will be liable j otherwise not ; but" it may be that no magistrate will believe that the...
EASILY-MADE NIGHTDRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
EASILY-MADE NIGHTDRESSES. For tlic girl who makes her own lingerie there is an easily fashioned night-dress, which has only side^ arid shoulder seams, as it is in two pieces, with kimono sleeves cut in one with the body of the garment. A pretty, as well as simple way of making this style of nightdress is to use very sheer material, and devote almost the entire sum of money set aside for the garment to its purchase, rather than to a few yards of expensive trimming, since the extra fullness at the top, >vhen finely pleated, sufficiently orna ments the front and back, and the square neck and loose, straight sleeves may be finished with inch wide bands of plain muslin, applied under a fine beading. Another slip over the head style of nightdress fastens in the back, and is of distinctly Empire type. Only two straight widths of fine nainsook are required for this garment, and while its lower portion is rather scant, it is not too much so for com fort. On the other hand, the extra fulln...

Women's Affairs CHATTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
(Q By "THE WIFE." J) CHATTER. Mabel Trevor, the happy wife in "The Woman in the Case", now play ing at the Criterion Theatre, is a country lass from Somersetshire (Eng.). On her first visit to Lon don she developed stageitis. Soon after, when the time came to earn her living, she decided on the stage, in spite of parental opposition. Says Miss Trevor: "I do love acting. It is just as much pleasure for me to go before an audience as it is for the keenest member of that audience to witness the piece. I find Aus tralian audiences intelligently appre ciative, and very just. You can't think how discouraging it is to face a cold audience. We players always feel and know when the house is real ly in sympathy with us, and then we are encouraged to give them our very best. We have lately been to America, but I like Australia very much better; in fact, I would like to stay here for good if I could induce my people to come, too." Asked if Australian women com-. pared favourably with English wo...
HILLSTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
HILLSTON. Hillston branch was specially visit ed by Mr. A. McArtliur, of Gunbar, the organiser appointed by the execu tive, who delivered an address upon the proposed attitude of the Assn. ciation towards the claims of the R.W.U. and the Referenda Dispos als. The president (Mr. Thomas Morant) was in the chair. Mr. McArthur did not dispute tlio right of the rural workers to form si union, but the F. and S. should also support their own union, and make its weight felt. It had accomplished great things in getting the Re-ap praisement Act carried, and in get ting the amendment giving power to acquire a living area. Hillston had one of the largest branches, and could be made much larger. He urged the members to try and increase its strength by per suading their sons and other land holders to join. The men on the land were the backbone of the country, and woulu prove its best defenders. America would soon cease to be a factor in the world's food supply, as she would need all her produce t...

GO-AHEAD GRAVESEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
GO-AHEAD GRAVESEND. Councillor Wearne is meeting -with great appreciation in his organising campaign in the north. Writing the general secretary, lie states that on April 3 he addressed a meeting of the Gravesend branch at 8 p.m. Gravesend is situated on the line be tweenInverell and Moree, and though its name has a dead sound, says Mr. Wearne, the people are very much alive, the branch, though a small one, having its own hall and land, which cost over £300, and they only owe £50, which they expect to clear by June, by holding a sports meeting, and a ball. If Gravesend, with only a small roll of members can do this," Mr. Wearne goes on, "why cannot the larger branches? It only requires the right men, with the necessary energy; but I shall not take our branches to task over what might have been. We have our heads turned the right way now, and the sleep of llip Van Winkle is over. At 8.30 p.m. the meeting started, and at the conclusion of my address, I re ceived a hearty vote of thank...
WARDELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
WARDELL. The early closing of the post offices is causing the people up country no end of inconvenience. As an instance a goodly number of farmers turned up at Wardell, the other Saturday night, in anticipation of hearing an address by Mr. John Wetherspoon, M.L.C., on the works and platform, of the Farmers and Settlers' Associa tion. Their hope was based upon an advertisement which appeared in the local press, naming Wardell as the ap pointed place, and Saturday the date fixed. However, those who went for this purpose were doomed to disap pointment, for a later advertisement showed the meeting had been altered, but most of the farmers did not re ceive their papers in time, as the post offices closed too early to permit of their delivery. As a number of farm ers came a long distance to hear Mr. Wetherspoon naturally they were in censed, and there seems no reason Avhy a man in a country town can not get delivery of his mail after 6 p.m. if he calls for it.
MANILLA. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

The election of officers resulted as follows:-Presi dent, Mr. jti. Stoddart; secretary, Mr. C. Wilshire; treasurer, C. Vincent; committee, all members.

However, no less than 62 mem bers paid in their subscriptions. The president's report pointed out the great strides the Association had made during the year, and the in terest it had taken in matters con cerning the farmer. An honorarium of £15 was granted the secretary for his past services. At the close of the meeting vice president J. Perry addressed a very large and representative gathering of farmers in the Mechanics' Institute, and very ably pointed out the objecta of the F. and S. Association, and the...
