The Monstera Deliciosa. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
The Monstera Deliciosa. At Messrs. J. H. Hutton and Ob's, pineapple cured hams exhibit was a flue sample of the famous Mexican fruit Monstera Deliciosa. It is quite new to this colony, but is cultivated very successfully in Queensland. In Parisian Cafe's the fruit is extensively used, its flavour being a mixture of the banana and pineaples. It is culti- vated from cuttings and grows on a vine, having very broad leaves, which ai-e in themselves quite ornamental. The Tweed, Richmond River, and Clarence districts should be very suit- able for the culture of this delicious fruit, which should find a ready sale in this and the Southern Colonies. Messrs. Hutton secured four first prizes for their trophy of Hams, Bacon, and Lard, gaining more suc- cesses in this section than any of the N. S. Wales exhibitors. The Sydney agents for the |firui are the Farmers Co-operative Company, Limited, of Sussex-street.
Cadbury Brothers. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Cadbury Brothers. WE need hardly enter into a derailed history of the exhibit of this well known House, whose block stands at the head of this column, for Cadbury's is a " Household Word " in even' portion of the British Empire, and in other Empires beside. They cannot boast great antiquity, for coming well within the century, even 50 years ago, employ- ers and employees could be counted on one's Angel's. To-day, however, they employ about 3000 hands, aud nearly one-third of all the raw cocoa imported into England goes to Bowenville, their headquarters. The aim of the House has ever been to produce an article of such merit, in all branches of their business, that shall make their name respected wherever it goes. But it is only with one department that we have now to deal, leaving others to speak for themselves, viz., that in evidence at the show, Cad bury's Cocoa Essence, or Cadbury's Cocoa, for Messrs. Cadbury call nothing COCOA but what is absolutely and unques- tionably pure. In ...
W. Jno. Baker's Cutlery Exhibit. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
W. J no. Baker's Cutlery Exhibit. GREAT interest was shown in the bright display of Cutlery of eveiy description from the small ornamental knife fit for a lady's chatelaiue up to the more ponderous instruments for station use. Some of the designs in Boundary w. jiro, BAKER'S CUTLERY EXHIBIT. Riders' Kits, Station aud Wire Key Knives, Bush, Hunting, and Picnic Knives, Australian Carvers, etc., were specially admired. That this admira- tion was well earned is proved by the fact that Mr. Baker received the Society's Gold Medal, the Champion Prize, and 10 other First Prizes for his exhibit. Special notice was given to the^jgxliîbits of Modern Veterinary T:nstrjments, Solid Steel Sheep and Cattle Ear Pliers and Dagging Shears, all of wluch received unstinted praise and approval. Mr. Bakers address is, 3 Hunter-street, Sydney, and he is always willing to receive correspondence and give advice upon any instrument required for station use.
The Machinery Section. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
j The Machinery Section. THE first thing tliat engages the visi- tor's attention at the Show ground is the extensive and£- varied Machinery exhibit. Standing on a slight eminence, there is spread before himVjmiltitude N.S.W. CARRIAGE COY. S BUCKBOARD. of all kinds of farm machinery ali in perfect order, and all gathered into various lots, under the care of some or other of our many representative firms. Many windmills in motion strike the eye, each of which is making a great show of doing something useful, like an idle boy at school, when in fact they are only pumping water out of one cask into another, whence it runs back to its original barrel again. Then towering above everything else away on the far side of the machinery section is seen the imposing structure of the Clyde Engineering Works, wherein are housed the many and various samples of their valuable products. From the top of their tower, by the way, can be ob- tained the best possible panoramic view of the entire grounds. ...
The Show. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
The Show. Brilliant weather favoured the opening and succeeding days, rendering every- thing pleasant and favourable for visitors. The first day was, as usual, devoted to the judging, which was again no light task in view of the large . number of entries. The attendance of the general public is not particularly desired on this day, and their absence is regarded some- what joyfully^by-,those_having this duty Mr. W. Drajier's GREY LOCK. 0 yrs., by Sa'ailin (imp.). &lt;lam Loo Loo. Champion l'oiiy Stallion. t>> perform. This is easily accounted for when the important nature of the task is remembered. The distribution of those much-prized lengths of blue, red, and white ribbon is always very keenly watched by all' exhibitors, and the pre- sence of large crowds of the general public only adds to the difficulties of the position. The live stock is perhaps the most difficult to properly distinguish, but the decisions which have been arrived at have certainly not received more...
The Government Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
The Government Farm. A very great amount of money has been expended by the Government on its Agricultural Colleges; and Experi- mental Farms, and every penny of it, much as it is, has been well spent. There have been mistakes made, of coarse. When a person-begins experi inditing, if IR'docs not make mistakes lie does not make anything : hut the very mistakes are valuable in themselves, inasmuch as they are indications to the farmers in the district generally that ' such and such a thing is not suitable for their peculiar climatic conditions. But the value of these experiments has ^ been proved over and over ¡again, not on 1 account of the mistakes it teaches fanners i to avoid, but because .it:has&lt;shown what Dr. Johu Hay's FLOWISE V., 5 yrs., Bred by John Grant, N.Z.

The American Cereal Company. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Ma. J. C. HUTTON'S EXHIBIT. The American Cereal Company. IT is generally admitted that cereals form a very necessary portion of the food ot mau. From bread, potatoes and rice we get all that we want of starch (or carbon) to keep up the heat in our bodies, but in order to provide fat and nitrogen for our muscles and phos- phorous for our bones and teeth we should eat well prepared cereal foods made from ths entire grain, in such a way as to preserve those elements care- fully. Of all grains, oats are the richest in the desired elements. It is to the general use of oatmeal that the Scotch owe their strong digestions, rugged health, and excellent teeth, and peopie are uow beginning to recoguise this, for the consumption of oatmeal has doubled within the last five years. In the form of Quaker Rolled White Oats it is the most palatable and nutritious food ever offered to the public : such QUAK Eli OATS EXHIBIT. - wheat products as Farina and Parched Farinose are good also, especially for...
Clyde Works. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Clyde Works, Passing on to the other branches of engineering art, the visitor enters the before-mentioned pavilion of the Clyde works, where some most inter- esting exhibits are to be seen. The Company confine their operations mostly to mining and fanning machinerv, and in both branches they were well rep- resented. Among the exhibits was a horizontal compound engine of 16 nominal horse-power, which is one of a number the company is making for cer- tain dredging plants. A ten-inch Jennings pump was working, sucking up water, sand, and boulders, each of the component parts of one of these pumps was laid out for examination. There was a good collection of stamper batter- ies, while in agricultural machinery the exhibit was prolific and exceptionally interesting. The Clyde Company have several new patents, which put them in an excep- tionally favorable position to supply their farming constituents with the very latest improvements, in various machines. In ploughs there is an improved l...
Rider and Ericsson's HotAir Pumping Engines. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Rider and Ericsson's Hot Air Pumping Engines. THESE useful and inexpensive engines are remarkable for the variety of uses to which a country resident eau put them. One of them will furnish ample water to the highest part of the house, and this rSTERIOR OF RIDER-ERICSSOX COY. S PAYTJJOX. admits of introducing all the conveniences and luxuries to be obtained from having plenty of pure running water over the whole premises. The water may be taken from almost any source, spring, well, cistern, or river. The engines can also be arranged to pump from very deep wells, either driven wells, artesian or open dug wells. They are particularly adapted for watering stock : many of them are now in use in the West, where it would be quite impossible to keep the stock during the dry season, without some such simple and efficient means of furnishing the necessary drinking water. These engines can be fitted with furnace to burn Kerosene Oil. The 8-in. Ericsson and smaller sizes consumes about one pint...

Wollongbar Experimental Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Wollongbar Experimental Farm. THIS farm, which is under the manage- ment of Mr. H. V. .Jackson, is situated about 8 miles from Lismore, in the Richmond River district. The area comprises about 2G3 acres of undulating land. The soil for the most part is red, very friable, and apt to get as dry as gunpowder after a dry spell of even a few days. This is characteristic of much of the arable land of the district. In parts of the farm patches of stony land occur ; in such some of the best of crops are raised. The country taken up for the farm carried originally a dense growth of *' big scrub "-an impenetrable growth of huge softwood trees and tangle of creepers. The seasons are capricious ; tempera- tures range all the way from the muggy claminess of the tropics to bitterly cold in situations exposed to the westerlies in whiter. The rainfall-although in annual volume more than ample for all crop requirements-is often incon- veniently distributed, and, owing to the peculiar nature of the s...
The Wagga Experimental Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
The Wagga Experimental Farm. THU Wagga farm, whick lias an area of 3300 acres, of which 1100 are cleared, and under cultivation, chiefly grows cereals and fruits, and specimens of these were on view. The land is of medium quality, partly granitic, and partly red volcanic. The average rain- fall for the past 25 years has been 22in. The farm is situated four miles north of W'agga. Mr. G. Maurice M'Keown is the manager. There are six students on the farm. As wheat is the " big thing " in the Wagga district, naturally the collection of wheat from the farm was a most important item. Grain in bottles, cabinets, wheat showing straw and ears, grain in bags, pulses, and miscellaneous seeds, rock melons, squashes, and dried fruits of all kinds, are beautifully arranged, and the exhibit was a very comprehensive one. The farm has now been established for nine years, and from its locality is the chief wheat ex- périmental farm for wheat growing. Hence, Dr. Cobb; the Department's wheat expert, ui...

Exhibit from the Technological Museum. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Exhibit from the Tech= nological Museum. THE Technological Museum, Ultimo, exhibited varieties of some of the colony's most important timbers, wool, and eucalyptus oils. The mmuVr of speci- mens of timber exhibited alone amount to nearly 700 ; no doubt, the finest collection of New South Wales timbers ever exhibited outside a museum. In the foreground were 12 large table plate glass cases, in which were exhibited manu- factured articles in juxtaposition to the raw timliers. These cases were backed by slabs of timi»er (ôi't. by 4ft.) polished and unpolished. The slabs were sur- rounded by large botanical colored diagrams, 2ft. by -1ft., of the timber exhibited, and large photographs of the museum, the whole forming a very effective, artistic, and instructive exhibit. Every specimen was correctly labelled with its " common'" and scientific names, and interesting information also given in regard to the various qualities and adaptabilities of the respective timbers. It is difficult to p...
