The Economic Benefits of Motive POwer. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 July 1914

B?8 It is well to pause at times in our daily routine of work and duty and .consider what an enormous debt of gratitude we owe to the introduction of motive power in all industries ; how, instead of slaving from morn till night—and frequently well into the night, as our forefathers did, wo of this generation, are enabled to work a reduced number of hours, thus giving us greater opportunities for self-improvement, recreation and rest, which changes have been ren dered possible through the great economic benefits conferred upon mankind by the introduction of motive power. The most popular form of motive power is still the old fashioned steam engine and boiler, and in a country like Australia, where wood can fre quently be had for the gathering, the cost of running a steam plant is al most nominal. A boiler will burn almost anything, and a property is decidedly improved by, having all the odd timber and stumps thus disposed of. On a dairy farm the uses of a steam plant are very pronoun...

WALLANGARRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 July 1914

AVALLANGAimA. (From our Correspondent). Though to-day is fairly fins the previous clay, Monday and Tuesday were anything hut agreeable.. Not much rain to speak of but cold winds and light drizzling rain—not enough to do any good, and just onough to make things uncomfortable. What we really want is 2 or ;) inches of rain and then a week or so of sharp frosts. If we do not get something like this the chances arc that there will be little fruit this year. The buds on the fruit trees arc swelling and with a few warm days they will be quite ready to burst into flower and this will be alto getlmr tooearly, for a late frost, if at all severe, will cut most, if not all, of it off. It seems really a great pity that we connot get one or two of the old style of winters like those of 1890 or 1893, so that some of the Springs which used to run in those days might be re-opened and the ground get a real soaking. To-day sports arc being held. For tunately the day is fine but a cold southerly is blo...

At one of the Western N.S. "Wales Circuit Courts a while back one of the witnesses in a forgery case was the cause of a little subdued merriment, and brought a smile even to the face of the grim old gent, who, dressed in a horse-hair wig, presided on the bench. One, of the questions put to the witness by the Crown Prosecutor was the following:—"Where you present 011 the particular occasion when tho prisoner now before the court, aflixod his signature to the docu ment purporting to be the genuine re ceipt!" The witness stuttered, scratch ed his head, and at length replied. "I never 'card anything of the sort!" "He does not quite grasp your mean ing," interposed his Honor. " So it would appear-," said the Crown Prose cutor. "I'll ask him the question in another form-,," and proceeded to do so. " Look Iiero my young friend," said the latter, with a persuasive smile.
