CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
CATTLE. The exhibit of cattle was a very good one, comprising about 240 animals, divided into 76 different classes. Mr. Angas, of South Australia, had, as was to be expected, a very good exhibit of Durhams, a few photos of which we give in our illustrations, while Mr. F. S. Reynolds' Herefords and Devons deserve special mention in the " Beef Cattle" class, and in addition there were some very good specimens of the Black and Red Polled Stock, which are coining into considerable prominence just, now, owing to the great weight these animals make for killing purposes, as well as being creditable daily stock, for which purpose the absence of horns proves a very great advantage, inasmuch as they do not knock each other about as other milking cows do. The cross between a Black Polled and a Durham produces a very fine bullock of tre- mendous proportion, which fatten easily, and are of a mild temperament, hence with the increased importance of the frozen and tinned meat industry, which must ...
Oil Comnpay. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Oil Comnpay. No more useful commodity was exhibited than the well known Reliance Oil. lt is prepared for all the numerous uses for ^liich the farmer or grazier finds for oil, -whether for sheep-branding, oiling machines, wool presses, farming imple- ments, greasy buggys or oiling leather aud harness. It has special advantages fdr use in sheep branding, it is not only absolutely free irani tar and other - deleterious ingredients, but it is insoluble : in rain or continuous wet, though at the same time it freely washes out in scour- ing, leaving no stain whatever. The Reliance Oil is made up in three colours, black, red, and blue, and is put up in drums ready for use without any admixture of Linseed or other oils being required, and has been found by those who have used it, to obviate the enormous loss, caused by the presence of tar and other injurious matter in uiany cheap branding oils, which wool growers suffer yearly. The oil may be obtained from all storekeepers, as well as from ...
On the Grounds. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
On the Grounds, OSE of the most pppular sights on the gronnd was the sheep shearing. There were several varieties of machines the chief being the " Wolseley," with;the motive power for driving obtained from a bicycle ridden "fay a lad. The ea^e vvitb which this machine was worked was marvellous, and received special com- mendation from many experienced visitors. Another popular exhibit was that of J. Barre Johnston and Co., when.« the AveryJWeighing Machines ? were on view. Throughout each day a steady stream of visitors flowed con- stantly through the large tent, the various feats in weighing on the largest down to the smallest machines being viewed with unflagging interest. Mr. Elliott, the popular manager of the firm, was present, and helped iu weighing large numbers of the interested specta- tors. There was. indeed, no lack of iuterest for the sightseer?. Another centre of attraction is the cutlery exhibit of Mr. Jno. Baker, where every con- ceivable style of knife for private u...

The Starkey Wheel. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
THU STARKEY 1900 MODEL. The Starkey Wheel. No exhibit on the Show Ground created more surprise aud pleasure than the modest, though substantial, display by Messrs. Starkey Brothers, and Com- pany, Ltd., Bicycle Manufacturers, 211 Castlereagh-street, Sydney. À surprise to the crowds who inspected the exhibit, from the fact that the machines of ele- gant desigu, beautiful finish, and faithful build, were manufactured in the colony. A pleasure to ali lovers of the wheel to realise that now bicycles can be built to >j&eir special order. The Starkey Wheel is without doubt the fiuest machine in Australia, and as such was awarded the first , and special prize. In the perfected machine there is a remarkably short wheel base, which makes the running easier, and gives a stronger and more speedy bicycle. The enamelling is of of the very highest order, in fact unsur- passable, and all parts are beautifully plated. A patent eccentric adjustment on each side of the back stays and fork ...
Dried Fruit Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Dried Fruit Industry. THERE should be a great future before the colony in this direction. The raisin grape does well at Richmond, but is rather difficult to dry, owing to the damp nights and rainy weather, but they find ready sale as a dessert fruit. Sultanas do not look very promising at the Hawkesbury JVIr. F. Cavasco's RONNIE. Tony Stallion.

On the 4th March we started on oui way to join Lord Roberts' forces, The first night of our journey was very uncomfortable for ns ; we had just got the horses and things fixed up when a great thunder- storm started, putting the ground we were on under two inches of water. We did not get much sleep that night, and what we did get was standing up. On the 5th we continued our march, and camped that night on a Boer farm. We got hold of a few sheep, which we soon made short work of. On the morning of the Gth news came into camp that on...

Trooper A. J. Slattery. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Trooper A. J. Slattery. i _ s We are indebted to Mrs. M. 8tinson, of Große Yale, for the fol- lowing extracts, taken from a letter received from her cousin, Trooper A. J. Slattery, of the N.S.W. Lancers, who is on active service in South Africa : Bloemfontein, 20th March. My Dear Cousin,'«-You may think me very irregular in answer- ing your letters, but since January 7th we have been marching and travelling every day, so I do not seem to have a spare minute for writing; for the same reason, we do not get our mails regularly, and I was delighted on last Thursday to receive a budget of letters of all dates, and to hear all my friends and relatives were well. Well, I suppose you have all heard ere this that the "Great Cronje" is cap- tured. Our regiment wes amongst the troops that did the trick, and took a leading part in it too. It was a forced march from Belmont, which we left on January 7th The weather was very hot, and our horses died by hundreds. We had one big battle before we to...
"CALL ALL HANDS." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
CALL ALL HANDS." The spirited verses, "Call all Hands," by W. T. Goodga of " Orange Leader," have ' taken on' all right in London, having gone the rounds of the press successfully. The verse was first published in the "Daily Telegraph," Sydney, and last week the Editor received a letter from the head master of a Erominent Grammar school in Eng md, in which he warmly praises the verses. He classes them as being of a much higher order than thoa* of Kipling, i.e. *' The Absent Minded Beggar," and in comparing the two he explains how essentially necessary it is to use none but the '. Queen's English" when expres- sing patriotic sentiments in verse.
Grenfell. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
GLES INNES DISTRICT. Grenfell. Ox the first computation the judges gave Glen Innes and Grenfell an equal number of points, but on going again through the two exliibits they decided that the former was one point better. This is a good indication of the merit of the Grenfell display, aud when we come to examine the detailed points secured it is seen that the two districts are very dissimilar in their products, which is more than accounted for by the differ- ence in their respective climates. In dairying, which industry Grenfell tackies with a tremendous handicap)-having no railway-that district was only one point behind her immediate predecessor. In cereals, mines, building materials, Gren- fell showed her rival the way. Grenfell, of course, is par excellence a wheat growing centre, is in fact the largest wheat growing district in the colony, while Glen Innes, owing to thc humid nature of the seasons, does not and can- not grow the staple grain product with any degree of reliance. In ...
Pearson's Carbolic Sand Soap. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Pearson's Carbolic Sand Soap. One of the most unique exhibits at the show was Pearson Bros.' new pavilion, built in the shape and colored in imitation of the firm's sand soap tablets. The idea was most original, and the bunding, from its peculiar structure, was observable from all parts of the ground. For the eighth successive year First Prize lias been awarded to Pearson's Sand Soap. The article is too well kuown to need description here, suffice it to say that it can be-highly recommended for its many excellent qualities. Not only is it a boon to the Housewife in her daily routine of house cleaning but in the dairy for scrubbing the floors and shelves, and for scouring milk pans and buckets it will be found invaluable, and those who may not have tried it before are recommended to put it to thc test. The success achieved by Pearson's Sand Soap has had the usual effect ol inducing many imitations : it «ill be necessary therefore for householders to sec that they are supplied with "P...
The Districts Societies Exhibits. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
The Districts Societies Exhibits. UNDOUBTEDLY one of the most impor tant exhibits of the entire show was tba comprising the District Societies Com petition. True, there were not nearly si many exhibitors as the importance of th subject warrants, but that can be satis factorily explained by pointing out tha this is a new experiment, and th' various districts had nothing definite t go upon, in point of custom or the das of products which might be sent. Xiii is a difficulty which has now been re moved, and it certainly would be disap pointing if next year there w re not quit twenty or thirty districts exhibiting The imtiation of the idea has lieen vcr; successful, what was lacking in quantity has been ample made up for in quality for the various exhibits were excellent even the lowest on the list, Tumut, whicl scored 43 points of a possible hundred was avery worthy display. Some of tin districts--Mudgee and Orange-wen not represented under the auspices o their local P. and A. Society, ...
"Toxa," the Rabbit Exterminator. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
"Toxa," the Rabbit Exterminator. WHAT with, drought and rabbits, our pastoralists and agriculturists have of bate years suffered very extensively. The hand of man cannot do much to avert the former, but for the extermin- ation of rabbits many means have been tried, and many thousands of pounds expended, with unfortunately too little beneficial result. Pasteur's efforts having come to nought, poison is now generally resorted to, hence a poison that is cheap and effective requires more than passing notice, es- pecially in view of the great importance the subject of rabbit extermiuatiou has to all stock and station owners. It is claimed for Toxa that it is taken by the rabbit when it rejects other poisons, and Idlls with but one dose. A 21b. tin lias been known to kill as many as 550 rabbits, and the poisoned carcases have been eaten by dogs without their suffer- ing any evil effects. One of its especial features is that it can be used at any season of the year with equal effect, and i...

New South Wales Car= riage and Saddlery Manufacturing Co. The best show in the vehicle section came from the above company. It re- presented all classes of the lighter vehicles, for which this firm is so well known, and some idea of its extent may be gained from the accompanying »T. S.

Glen Innes. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Glen Innes. THIS was a very creditable trophy, and many visitors to the show, who knew Glen Innes well, expressed much gratifi- cation at the excellence of the exhibit. It was only eight points behind Grafton, but the difference, slight though it is, was not perceptible! to the casual| on looker. While Grafton got 8ipoints hV sugar, and Glen Innes none, the latter secured &lt;S points for wool, while Grafton had but a nominal exhibit. In vegetates Glen Innes was one point better than the winner, while in dairying, which is quit)? a new industry in Glen Innes, that society was one point behind : so that Advice to Mothers : Robinson's; Patent Groats is a perfect babies' food. i&lt; next war til * exhibit from th; C 'lit.-.u N-w Euglaud town should be highly interesting and instructive. On another part of tlie Show Ground, too, was a pri-ce winner which will have m'ich to do with the future progress of Glen Innes as a dairy centre. We refer to the champion dairy bull, L...
Mudgee. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Mudgee. Too much praise cannot IM? given to the Hon. G. H. Cox for the energy and patriotism displayed hy him in personally gathering materials to have his impor- tant district represented in the country exhibits. The results, though highly creditable to Mr. Cox's determination, was but a poor indication of the wealth and importance of the great North Western capital. Did we not expect to «ec something much better from Mudgee, the exhibit in itself would have been satisfactory, but now the ice has l»een broken, it is surely not too much to hope that next year the Mudgee exhibit will l>e worthy of Mudgee, and that the local ¡Society will IK? enthusiastically supported by thc farmers themselves in their efforts to make their exhibit, what it should Ix*, one of the first, not one of the last on the list. Notwithstanding the great .drawbacks, the exhibit contained many creditable features. The manufactures were good and various, while the presence ?of marble, both rough and polished,...
