Visit of the Shah to England. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900

Visit of the Shah to England. It is interesting to read the recent cable announcing the intended visit of the Shah of Persia to England. In the face of Russia's recent taking over of Persia's indebtedness to England, on the security of her customs, it will puzzle those wh > study the affairs of International politics to know what the game ii. By this mortgaging of her customs to Russia, Persia is practically delivering herself Q\er to her hereditary euemy. That far reaching and persistent policy of Russia, although frightening to Kuglani, forces a i miration from ber. For yeaca Russia has been held in check by a system of en forced polie j-a coalition of all continen tal nation«. In the far Afghanistan, she works patiently. In th-e Crimea years ago, (die made a clever bid for Constan tinople, and failed, an 1 now with pdace in her speech, and battle in her heart, she holds forth thc hand of friendship. Again we say it will be interesting to wateh vhe outcome of this visit to Eng ...

LOWER PORTLAND. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900

LOWER PORTLAND. (From our own corresponden1.) Mr. Joe Brown has just returned home from a trip to Sydney, after spending a most enjoyable holiday. A heavy gale of wind passed over here on Sunday night last, and did a great deal of damage to fruit trees, etc. A boat race took place here on Saturday last between J. H. Jacobs and Fred Barber, when the former won by three lengths. Some of our local and visiting gunnists did a lot of shooting on Saturday night last.^ The foxes provided good sport, and were treated to a good supply of lead. It is rumoured that Messrs. L. Law and S. Herps intend trying their luck at the Kempsey tin mines, for which place they leave next week. We wish them good luck. Messrs. Clive Johnson (better known as Joe) 6on of Mr. F. C. Johnson, and H. Bonamy, grand son of a one-time Windsor station master, paid us a visit during the Easter holidays, and played great havoc with the foxes and parrots.

The Imperial Bushmen's Contingent. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900

The Imperial Bushmen's Con tingent. lt ñ satisfactory to know that no "roltevs" have crept into the b.jdy of officers chosen to accom pany tlie Imperial Bushmen. The Government actvi wisely ill choos ing euch a p<od judge and impar tial man as Mr. Lom Watson. Mr Watson knows the " game ; he has been on many a cattle camp ; he has the reputation of being a good polo player; and he is an authority on steeplechasing. There lore, the sifting out of this mass of raw material men, who can ride as bushmen should tide, is work, under the circumstances, right into Mr. Watson's hands. Then again, we have in the Commanding Officer, Colonel Mac kay, a genuine horseman, a soldier who in his " furloughs " has been an ardent huntsman, following some of the leading hounds in England. No " deadheads " have passed him. He has " straightened them up," casting out the bad horsemen, irrespective of recom mendations. In the "roughing" that must inevitably attend the coming campaign of the depa...

CONDITION POWDERS FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900

CONDITION POWDERS FOR HOItöES. The following recipe for giving horses condition was recommended in 1863 by an officer in the Indian army, who found it invaluable in the East. It seemed to fortify tho horse against fatigue :-Boil a sheep's head almost to a state of jelly, an»' mix with enough bran to make up into balls ; ono head f.er day should be ^iven in this form, au«' the horse's allowance of corn reduced by liíüf. Fpr tho first two or three days the animal must be fed by working the mixture with the fingers between his grinders ; ho will gradually swallow small portions, and io. four or five days will eat it greedily. Dick Turpin is said to have been in the habit of wraping a thing piece of raw beef steak round his mare's bit when he had to call upon her for a very special effort in the shape of a long I and fast journey. Some horses eat animal food quite voluntarily. A. few years ago an account was published of a horse which volun tarily ate a duckling and trout; and of anothe...

ORCHARD & FARM. PEACH RUST. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900

ORCHARD& FARM. PEACH RUST. The goverment fruit expert, Mr. W. J. Allen, states that this di ease, which is becoming very com mon is apt to make its appearance at about this time of the year upon the foliage of the peach, nectarine, and almond trees. The leaves be come more or less freckled with light-yellow spots which grow into small pustules that give rise to a I mai8 of spores, forming a brownish, dust when mature. Tho leaves turn yellow and fall off much sooner than they would under natural conditions. TREATMENT: As in many other fungus diseases, the treat ment to be effective must be pre ventive rather than remedial. To this end, all the affected trees should be carefully marked, and sprayed with weak Bordeaux mix ture (say 40 gallons water instead of 22 in the regular formula) soon after the bude have burst in the spring ; a second treatment to fol low 3 or 4 weeks Jäter, and a third spraying later on (if the fruit is not ton far advanced) in about three weeks. This sh...

SILAGE NECESSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900

SILAGE NEOESSAEY. Without winter pastura Bilage is necessaiy to successful cattle feed ing, for beef or dairy purposes, says an American exchange. Corn is the best crop for silage, and the talings of a corn crop make a fairly good feed. Some farmers in the West sow their cleanest stubble land to corn broadcast, a little thin ner than for fodder, and put the crop with whatever weeds and grass, may intervene into the silo, and the general verdict is that cattle eat it clean. Such silage is not as good feed as that made from well matured corn, but it is cheaper, and gives god satisfaction. A Iii tie ground grain with the silage makes a most excellent ration, This ground grain should be, corn for beef-making and oats or corn for the dairy.

Dear Mr. Editor, I notice by your up to-date little journal that yon wore by no means asleep during your recent visit to these parts, and that the disgraceful con dition of our Webb's Creek public school did not escape your notice.
