WOOL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 14 November 1902
WOOL REPORT. Messrs. Winchcombe, Carson & Co., Ltd., report, under date 12th November, 1902 | Our next sale will fall on Monday, 17th instant. Meantime the market is practic ally unchanged since we last reported. The demand for good woo's continues very active, the tendency being to favor the grower. Privately we have 6old scoured skin wool to 19jd per lb and have placed a number of clips passed in at pre vious sales at good prices ; notably Mr. N. E. Lane's, of Dubbo, lid, and Mr. Joseph Taylor's, of Young, lOd. Droughty condi tioned wools, weak in staple, and more or less earthy and wasty, continue to be difficult to place to owners' satisfaction ; growers being slow to appreciate the fall ing off in quality and yield. In -many cases these droughty wools have to be sold at less money than was paid for the same brand last year.

Destructive Hurricane. 1 GREAT LOSSES AT CAN0W1NDRA. Honses Unroofed and Churches Blown Down. On Saturday afternoon al-out 1 .HO a terrible hurricane struck the town and district of Canowindra. It was the heavist storm within the recollection of the oldest residents, and caused wide spread destruction in the outlying dis tricts as well as in the township/ Its course is reported to have covered a width of about six or seven miles. The hun ivanc approached from the west in terrible magnificence, and as it came neiirer trees could -bo seen to fall in its path, being loosed about like straws. As ?; it readied the township everything be- ? came as dark as night by reason of the immense clouds of dust whicli advanced with it. .i The roofs were blown from houses. Outhouses and sheds were carried in some cases half-a-mile. Numbers of families had their houses entirely demolished, and had to seek shelter with their more for tunate neighbours.

The Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 14 November 1902
The l¥eatlier. — o — Since our last issue the weather has' been of a variable nature. On Saturday the heat iu the forenoon was very oppressive, but in the afternoon a heavy storm, ac companied by thunder and lightning broke over the town and had the effect of moder ating the heat somewhat. About.61 points were registered. Notwithstanding that 50 points of this total fell in less than half an hour, the streets ten minutes after wards did not give evidence of more than a few points having fallen— thus indicat ing the parched nature of the earth. On Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday the heat was moderate, but on Wednesday the j atmosphere gave signs of impending I change. On that night about 10.30 a beautiful meteor fell in a south-west direction, but its descent was obscured to great extent by a great dust storm i which was raging in that direction. On i Thursday morning the full extent of the | dust storm was experienced here, and at 6 a.m. it was almost impossible to discern objects on th...

Canowindra Cyclone. What a City Gentleman Saw. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 14 November 1902
Caiiowlndk'a Cyclone. What a. City Gentleman Saw. ' In the thirty years that I have been resident in the State I have never seen anything to approach the storm that I witnessed last Saturday, at Bangaroo, some five miles out of Cauowindra.' The gentleman inter viewed, who is well-known iu pastoral and city commercial circles, happened to 1 i ? ? .1 lL . I ? ? l... .1 -- - De staying at Due Doinesieau at cue iime. ' It was not a storm, but a water spout. There are two bouses on the station, with the roofs properly pitched and the iron thoroughly and closely put on. Despite this tbe velocity of tbe wind was so great that it drove the water up tbe overlaps with such force as to flood the interior of the houses. Tbe rain appeared to come throught just as if there were no roofs on at all. An examination afterwards showed that no sheets of iron bad i been displaced. Several windows were j broken by the force of tbe gale. j ' A large reservoir, situated about i 50 yards from one of tbe hou...

TheSeoretarv of the Granm fllnh. 1 who bad been doing his best to work . the Association up, read n amorous letters from western centres (in reply to those he had written) almost all of which, for some reason or other, evaded the issue, so that the only clubs who were definitely pledged to associate remained at four, Orange, Molong, Parkes, and Carcoar. After discussion, during which it was generally regretted that tbe various Western clubs were holding aloof, it was agreed to defer the formation of ' the Association until a future date. Colonel Smith was of opinion tbat the smaller clubs would uever join tbe Association as* they feared, with reason, domination. He agreed that tbe matter bad best be deferred.

What Next? [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 14 November 1902
-.w.v?5a.'s ; ' What lext? A BECENT number of the ' Lancet records a ca^e of complete removal of the stomach for cancer of that organ by Dr. Syme, at St. Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne. Surgeons have found that tbe presence of the stomach is not absolutely essential for tbe digfes-* iiiuu ui iuuu ui ivi ujmuiiaiuiu^ sup* The intestines take on tbe work ri ordinarily done by the stomach. In the case in question the patient (a iff female) a fortnight after tbe operation vj took her food well, increased in /| weight, and experienced no feelings of JA dyspepsia. At the end of the fourth Jj week sbe was discharged.

Correspondence. DAIRYING AND THE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 14 November 1902
Correspondence. DAIRYING AND THE GOVERNMENT. Sir, — I have been lately studying the Bill introduced to the House by Mr. Kidd to - regulate dairies and dairy factories. It appears to me that the Bill commences at the wrong end, and it iB quite evident that the Minister s advisers have had 'very littleexperience and taken no cognisance : whatever, of the experience or other cbunfaies. To my mind tbe, dairying ihdiistry TequirieB looking -after from the /¥tn Ba'4-A.4^a Aa*i?inaf»r Ijiooe W VUV AOVWI r^ oj.vwi vrutvii viuuiuj commercial life will attend to the market ing. . Instead of which this Bill attempts to put unnecessary restrictions into force, and at the -same time usurp a position which would be detrimental to the life of the trade. In regard to grading, it is a well-known fact that neither in London, Africa, or at any other point will the - s buyer pay for choice butter unless it is choice, and no amount of Government grading will persuade the purchaser tbat bad butter is goo...

Share System. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 14 November 1902
Share System. A case of special interest to farmers working under the share system with landholders came before Acting- Justice Armstrong at Wagga District Court last week. A farmer, named A. E. Oeham, holder of a lease from A. J. A. Beveridge, grazier, of certain lands for tbe purpose of cultivation under the sharfi svatam. r.laimad £200 dam. : ages from Beveridge, on tbe ground that be bad trespassed on the land during Oeham's occupancy of it by depasturing sheep on it before the crop had been fully gathered, thus causing plaintiff an alleged destruction of a great quantity of wheat. Defendant's counsel raised tbe point that tbe District Court had no jurisdiction, as a title of lands was in issue, and the Judge upheld the contention. A settlement of this unique matter, which it is understood is to be carried further, is of considerable importance to share farmers who, by this decision of no jurisdiction, will be forced to proceed by expensive processes of the Supreme Court for a s...
