Farm and Garden ORIGINA ARTICLES 1 RAISING YOUNG TURKEYS. | ^Y^S£OUNG turko s are very tender and need to be carefully and intelll WAaL gently trc .ted, otherwise the mortality nmocg them will be gr.-at.

But ' he chanceB are that if left to herself an 1 permitted to roan abcut unfettered the will soon bave bat a small number. Especially is this.traa of the first hatching.

In order to do that, make a tinht pen of boards abont a foot high in a dry location where there is sand or dirt for them to pick at.

Railway Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
Railway Notes. Mr. Surveyor Wells, the gentleman at present engaged on the Grogra to Cano windra section of the Gregra-Cowra railway, on Monday morning last was driven out by Mr. W. Riddle to inspect and report on the matter of deviating from the recent survey of the Canowin dra-Oo'.vra section of the railway by Mr. Wilkins- Mr. Wells being an ener etic officer little fear need be felt that valuable time will be wasted, as there still remains considerable detail work to be carried out in connection with tho Gregra-Canowindra survey. It is stated that though apparently almost level there is a rise of about. 400£t. in 12 miles of the Canowindra - Gregra line. There would be a rise of about 2000ft if a line was taken from Cargo to Amaroo. During the . week it was reported in Cudal that Mr. Surveyor Wells had re ceived instructions to proceed at ouce to cue uut t*. vt tuo curt-oa- OBTTib portion of the survey recently carried out by Col on ol T.

SPRAYING FOR PEACH LEAF CURL. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
SPRAYING FOR PEACH LEAF CURL* I The remedy most commonly recom mended against this disease is bordeaux nrxture ; but while entirely effectual, it is comparatively quite expensive, and is more difficult to prepare than a simple solution of sulphate of copper, which is eaid to give fully as good r- salts. If the weakest formula of bordeaux mixture ia used it costs about sixpence a oarrei, while a solution of sulphate of copper can be made for leas than half that oost of materials and quite as effectual. This matter bas been thoroughly t sted by many peach growers in different parts durina the last five years, and where the trees have been properly sprayed there has been entire fre dom from disease. To be entirely cffsctaal, t e trees must be thoroughly sprayed at least three weeks before the leaf buds open. If the spray ing is dslayed until the buds are opening, the benefit from the application will be very slight. It bas been observed that solutions of sulphate of copper in am monia ...
BLOCKS OF CARBON IN LUNGS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
BLOCKS OF CARBON IN LUNGS. The lungs of a polisher of electric light carbon terminals were exhibited by M. Lwcereaux at a recent meeting of the French Academy --i Medicine, and it was shown that the said organ had been trans formed into veritable blocks of carbon. Yp to the age of thirty-six the deceased tad been a robust stonemason, bat was then transferred to a workshop eight metres leng by seven broad, where, with eight other men. he was engaged in polishing on stone muls carbons for electric lighting. The shop was so badly ventilated that sometimes they conld not distinguish each other the stone, dust, and charcoal, filling the atmosphere, and the result was apparent in M. Lancereanx*s exhibit, which was strong argument, if one was needed, for the better ventilation of workrooms and the use of the respirator.
Toogong. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
Toogong. (From our Correspondent.') I have not seen any account of the Toosonp: social in your paper so I will send vou. ih a brief account of it. In was in aid of the Teachers Branch of the Mt. Kembla fund, und was one of the most successful entertainments ever held in Toogong. The hall was nicely decorated with flags and greonerv which made it ?present, a verv attractive appearance. Mrs. Milton, Misses Traves and Pike, and Mr. J. .T. Murphy were responsible for the decoration, and thpy deserve to be congratulated for their good taste. Dancing commenced about 8.30 p.m., and before long tho hall was full to over flowing about 50 couples being present, There were visitors from Cudal. Eusjowra, Burdett, Cranbury, Murga. and Manildra. Excellent music was supplied by Messrs. Wren and Smith. Extras were supplied by Messrs W. Murray and R. McLach lan. Messrs. J. J. Murphy and A. Davis were Ms.C. and as usual gave every satis faction.

WHAT MOULDS THE FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
-WHAT MOULDS THE FACE. It appears probable that the tailor's distinctive type of face may hava been partially crated by his habit of working h-ji jaws concomitantly with hu shears. Let any one watch a person catting a pieco of tough mateiial with scissors, and he will Eee that the lower part of the face wags in rhymetic and spontaneous unison with the blades. Shepherds and farm labourers who join sheep-shearing gangs ! certainly acquire a different expression while engaged in this kind of work. The cast of countenance by which one ss I easily recognises a groom is partially ex I ?plicablo by the fact that the mnscles I which close the ia-rand compress the lips are always called into iplay when we are asserting onr will over that of a hone. Nearly all jockeys and other horsey men have a peculiar set of the mouth and chin, although no special characteristic about the eye or the upper part of the face may be distinguishable; It is in structive to compare tbe visage of the raler of hors...
A Few Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
A Few Notes. (By Veritas.) Thus the Daily Press. — 'A petition is in the course of signature in Sydney for presentation to the House of Representa tives, protesting against the action of Sir Edmund Barton in making an official visit to tho Popo and accepting a gold medal as a distinction from the Pontiff Such action was in the opinion of tho pe titioners, a recognition of the Church of Rome, which they believed to ho a poli tical organisation, bavins; for its object the u'lversion of our civil and religious liberty and of British interests.' Ah — mil — yes. Of course ! Marvel lous ! Political organisation! — Of course it is, and also of course the political organi sations are so many more religious sncfs. Naturally. But why in the name of all that's righteous has it taken all this time to discover that the Catholic Church is a political organisation. Such a rotten as sertion as this is well worthy of tho pur pose for which it is being used. The enemies of the Commonwealth find it im...
[?] [?] [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
[?] cv. j:e :vc.t.»iOiTX. HEN w-; turn to a study of those conditions which are modifying KlKMa the general intellectual capacity of the race we are confronted by a paucity of definite factors to which we CBn assign a value ; some points, how ever. come out pretty clearly. We are certainly giving an extended advantage to those who' are intellectually capable and withdrawing artificial props to the incapable. Family ties and the trans mission of property (a truly Lanaarckian transmission of that which is acquired) have had much to do with the prevention of those selective influences which operate with Kreat power in semi- barbaric times. We are here dealing with feelings which are the highest and strongest humanity poBsesseB, the love of a parent for a child. This lore may, however, be misplaced and ill-jndgedt and it is with this misplace-, ment and misjudgmeat that we are dealing. Until recant times a gentleman might, send his son into the army, navy, or church ; a point might be s...
Our Open Column (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
Our Open Column (To the Editor.) Sin. — I notice ill yoiir issue of tho 18th a letter by Veritas Vineot.' Ho says the people of Eu'gowra are roped in by Cowra and are promised the Cowra sup port for a railway from Grenfell via Eu gowra to Forbes. No wonder tho writer did not sign his namo to this production, for I am sure no sane man would sign such rot. I would not notice it, only this is the third time lately that some one through youi paper has had a sly shot at Eugowra. They first said we were agi tating for a line from Lvndhurst ; then some knowall hinted at aline from Gren fell ; and according to ' Veritas Yincet' it is an established fact'. Now, what earthly good would a line from Groufell do Eugowra ? Wo want to send our produce east, not west. We want the shortest and most practicable route to Sydney. It pays us better to pay car riage by team from Cowra (41 miles); I than to get our loading by train to Cook amidgera (21 miles) for Cowra is 40 miles nearer Sx-dnoy than our ...
QUEER FUNERAL RITES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
QUEER FUNEBAL RITES. A whimsical ? Frenchman, having selected his last resting-place, drew up a special programme for his funeral, which religion was to play no part. A procession of his friends and r-lations, headed by a band, was, however, tofeUow bis remains to the place of interment, where a political comrade of th« deceated'e would deliver an address dealing with the tetter's character, with special reference to the food points thereof. After this the band would play selected pieces of music, winding op with aongs and dances to raise the drooping spirits of the mourners before quitting the grave-side. Th« eccentric man was so asxions that the programme should be faithfully carried out that he held a mast eaooeesful re hearsal of it — even to the eulogistic speech — in his life-time. Why a woman shoald desire to be laid oat on a piano when she had etrack her last note it would be difficult to Bay. Yet that was the wish expressed by aa Ameri can lady shortly before her death whic...

At the warden's couot Orange on Tues day Mr, E. G-_ Jfoppett, manager of the Aladdin's Lamp Gold-mining Company, Lucknow, applied for three months' sus pension of the labour conditions on the mine.

Burdett. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
Burdett. i ? (From our Correspondent.') Mining operations are again in full swing, there now being a number of con tracts let for the raising of stone. I was glad to notice that the local school children are zealously endeavoring; to lend a helping hand to tho bereft families ot Mt Kembla. No doubt the children of Lockwood and Cranbury will also stand out prominently in tho matter of collections towards this worthy object. His former pupits at Burdett will pro bably be pleasod to hear that Mr. Put land is again in their district, being now in charge of the school at Bumbery, not far from Murga. Mr. Robert Brion of Glenbrook has purchased the well-known thoroughbred stallion Young Rapid from Mr, O.Dawes ot a satisfactory figure. I understand that Mr* Jos. Craven of Glenhurst, Lackwood, will shortly lead to the altar Miss Maud Frogley, of Garra, the date of the happy event being -fixed f ir the first of next month. We all join ia vvish'nj ti e happy pair prosperity.
Canowindra J. C. SPRING MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
Canowindra J. C. SPRING MEETING. During the week the township has been inundated with tho usual crowd of race followers, and the hotel accommoda tion has boon taxed to its utmost limits. Following as it did immediately oil the Cowra Show meeting, numbers of entries were received just before the closing and resulted in nominations as follows : Sep tember Handicap, 1 mile 1 furlong : Caroline 9.12, Guldbust 9.10, Firewater 8.8, Oorollcry 8.0, Berwick 7.10.

However, much or little satisfaction felt tho racing turned out splendidly, and upon the conclusion of the meeting gene ral satisfaction was felt at the result. There whs a f...
LIGHT DISCOLOURS GEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
LIGHT DISC0L0UB3 GEMS. The discoloration of prccious stones when they have been exposed to the air for a long time is well kBftwc. Emeralds, rubies and sapphires are less susceptible to atmospheric influence, but even they, siys the 'Tatler.' are not exempt from change. If two rubies of the same size and shade are kept for say two years, one in a showcase and the other in absolute darkness, an examination of the stones at the end of thit time will invariably shew that the showcase ruby has become dis tinctly light in colour. The most sensi tive of all stones t - variations in light is the opal. This stone draws its marvellous rainbow reflections from numerous little ?clefts, which ailow the light to pass and reflect it in different dir ctions.' Often the opal stands the manipulations of cut ting and polishing well, and all of a sadden it splits.
GAS £200 PER CUBIC FOOT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
GAS X200 PEE CUBIC FOOT. That rare element heiion, which was found first in the sun by tbe spectroscope, and then by Professor Ramsay in the mineral clevite, is the costliest substance known. It has been frund recently in the rases given ont by the hot springs at Bath, and there Professor Dewar i» col lecting, it to Eubrait the element to his hiph pressures and low temperatures. It costs .£200 per cubic foot to collect, or more than a million times the price of coal ga9. To freeze it enormous pressure and almost the absolute zero of heat will be needed. Tbe prosesB ie difficult and - rather dangerous, and the Professor and his assistants at the Eoyal Institution re quire to exercise the utmost care, for the escape of only fire feet of the gas would mean .£1,000 gone irretrievably.

[?] A Modern Fire. As the physician, friend, and distant relative of the late Mice Maijory Sedg wick, I set down in narrative form a con nected series of extracts from the documents she left in m; care, believing such publication to be in accord with her wishes. 1 thie with some hesitation, not being accustomed to write for tbe public prints, while the tenets of my pro fession Doint towards eeerecv with regard J to communications rather than the re verse.

RENOVATING A BLOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902
RENOVATING A BLOUSE. 1 This summer bodices and blouses are 9 either pouched, sacque-like, or made with' ' boleros, and it is quite impossible for S anyone with any pretentions to fashion to wear, in its original form, a last year's - ;:jfl blouse that failed to drop ever at the jfl waist. There are ways, however, by which a demode blouse may be renovated '-9 into fashionable prettiness again, and I havn reoentlv seen a verv clever idea car- : ried oat for effeoting this sort of renova tion. The blouse experimented on was of cream coloured broode and had done vjM duty at a last year's wedding. It was ffl t- en simply gathered into the neck and . waiBt, a laoe scarf passed through a paste ' ' buckle trimming the throat and a fichu of fine lace to match covering thie . shoulders and the side-fronts of the mouse. ' jfl The hopelesB part of the affair this season lay in the fact that there waB no pouch in tbe waist, and without it there was (to Btyle to tbe blouse. Accordingly the garmen...
