Not Like Fiction. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
Not Like Fiction. j. ,A case that had something ot the dramatic ?'about it came before the Central Polico Court last week. It arose out of a wife dosqrtion matter from Cowra way. The defendant was a young man of the well-set-iip bush type, j There was an air of frankness about 1 him that removed him from the ordinary offender in this class of offence one so , often seos in polico courts. It was al leged against him that he had run away ! from his young wire^almost a year ago, siuce which a child had beon born. He | was asked to hold the mite-it was the first time ho had seen it-whilst his J wife was in the witness-box. It was the samo old story, want of faith and jealousy on both sides, but those who i looked for the customary reconciliation I which takes place in storybooks when i tlie innocent babe is brought in, woro sadly disappointed. The young man assented to an order without a murmur. -"S.M. Herald." r "

BEEKEEPER. DRONE COMBS. CAUSE OF SWAKMNIG. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
DRONE COMBS. CAUSE OF SWAKMNIG. 'Ihe importance of a full supply of worker combs in the brood chamber is well known to experienced bee-keepers. If there is a large area of drone comb It induces swarming, produces honey consumers instead of honey gatherers, and handicaps a colony in other ways. What causes the building' of drone cells, and how it is ,to bo avoided without supplying full sheets of foundation for worker base? All observing apiarists have seen that as the. day of swarming draws near the quoin r-cascs lo be so prolific, in order that she may be able to fly at the swarming time. The bees do not feed her prior to this, and her abdomen is contracted almost to the size of that of a virgin. Naturally, if she essayed flight when full of eggs she would fall to the ground. The sec ond reason for' this discontinuance of feeding before swarming is that the queen should not be injured by an ac cumulation of eggs which she is unable tfo deposit after swarming, because it is some tim...

FLOOR COVERINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
FLOOR COVERINGS. If the room is being entirely covered, oilcloth should be cut an inch or so smaller than it is actually required, aa after It is laid down it always swells. Another point to remember is to take out any tacks there may be in- the floor, or they will work through the oil cloth and make untidy holes. ; A pro fessional always brushes.the back of the floor-cloth over with size, to make it stick to the floor. Of course, if1*the-floor-cloth Is In large pieces, a short sharp, "curved knife, such as the workmen generally use, will be required, as an ordinary knife would be worse than useless ,for the purpose. In putting down a carpet, it is an ex cellent plan to slide a pair of goloshes over the shoes.
