Our Death Knell. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 22 December 1880

Our Death Knell. Yours truly J Andrew Driee MR. ANDREW DRIES, of Owensfield, who sometime ago wrote us on the subject of a flying serpent he had been privileged to see on one of his return journeys from Singleton, writes us again to order the discontinuance of his copy' of the Argus } and he is kind enough to go to.the trouble of giving us his reasons. They may prove as interesting as tho subject of his former epistles, and we are never afraid of publishing any abuse our good friends choose to heap upon us. This letter is peculiarly acceptable as a counterpoiso to tho usual plethora of " compliments of tho soason," for which Christmas is famous. We havo omitted ono or two words to save Mr. Dries from an action for slandor for defaming the writer he hates so much.. We have never seen a flying serpent, and there fore it is needless to say wo do not see with the eyes of our outraged corres pondent. The reasons are thus ex pressed : As you may: no doubt: wish to know the Beason why I ta...

Sowing Rye in Corn. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 22 December 1880

Sowing Rye in Corn. IF farmers will sow one-half bushel of winter rye to the aero in their corn, and plough it in the last time, it will not only have a tendency to choke out the weeds that start op afterward, but thero will bo no danger of murrain among cattle from eating too frooly of dry stalks, as tho rye will remain green through the winter, nnd will bo eaten by stock in preference to tho corn fodder. It makes a desirablo feed for nil kinds of stock, and aids materially in tho quality and quantity of milk produced, besides proving a saving of from ono to two tons of hay for every acre sown; and last, but not least, it affords a groen crop to plough under in the. spring, which will renew and enrich the land.
