Government Fruit Exhibit. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900

Government Fruit Exhibit. THE I )ej m rt Illental Fruit exhibit in the new Government pavilion was an object of admiration to every visitor at the Show. Nothing approaching it has ever been seen on the ground. The fruits <>n exhibition, as pointed ont by Mr. W. .1. Allen, the Government fruit expert and superintendent of depart- mental orchards, have all been dried in the sun at the Wagga and Hawkesbury College orchards, and although the season has been an exceptionally dry one, they have succeeded by systemati- cally working and pruning the trees and vines to produce some excellent fruits for drying and bottling. Large quanti- ties of apricots, prunes, and sultanas, currants, and raisins are yearly imponed into New South Wales, while we have the Laud which will produce the very liest quality of all these different fruits, and it is to be regretted that this impor- tant industry has not received more attention than bas heretofore been given to it. In the Departmental e...

The Wolseley Sheep Shearing Machine. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900

The Wolseley Sheep Shear- ing Machine. THE Wolseley Sheep Shearing Machine Co. Ltd., was again well to »the fore with im- proved and up-to-date machinery, for which it was awarded First Prize, also the Soci- ety's Certificate of Merit. Its large pen of sheep was one of the most attractive fea- tures of the show, and large crowds expressed their surprise at the way in which the fleeces were wou, per medium of engine and bicycle power alter uately. It is really surpris- ing the success this Company has met with considering it was the pioneer to place an effective shearing mach- ine on the mar- ket : and not-' withstanding the many similar inventions which have from time to time appeared on the market and show grounds, the " Wolseley " still keeps well ahead of all competitors, and its long-standing clial lenge to all comers has never been accepted, which justifies the confidence reposed in its machines. Over 500 sheds in Australia arc now fitted with its machines. His Excellency the G...

THE 1900 ROYAL AGRICULTURAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900

THE 1900 ROYAL AGRICULTURAL SHOW. WHEX the obvious drawbacks with which the Show has had to contend this year are taken into consideration, it is pleasing to know that the 1900 exhibition has fully equalled any pre- ceding it. The gate money is prac- tically the same as last year-£4712 a most gratifying result. The Show itself was a great improvement on all previous' efforts,- and it reflects great credit upon the committee, and upon Mr. Fred. Webster, the secretary, whose indefatigable energy knows no obstacles, and to whom is due, more than to any other individual, the ere lit of the complete success of the Exhibition, and tie enjoyment of thousands of visitors. The vast im- provements made to the grounds also was a very noticeable feature ; year by year some new addition is made which is calculated to improve the comforts of visitors, or to extend the accommoda- tion of exhibits, and in this latter the Society's work during the year has been most marked and extensive.

THE APIARY. (From the "Agricultural Gazette.") [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900

THE APIARY. Br ALBERT GALE. * (From the "Agricultural Galette.") The cell in which a queen bee is de* veloped differs greatly from that of the worker, not only in form, but in many other respects. The cells in which wor- kers are developed are eexaugular tubes. These are arranged horizontally, or nearly so, and form one compact mass. Each of there six avails form a division between any two cells. The arrange- ment and the massing of these cells form what is familiarly termed brood or honey comb. How unlike these are the queen cells. They are circular tubes that hang perpendicularly from the wor- kers* cells. Workers' cells are always built of new material-there are occas- ional exceptions ; but queen cells are always built of old material without exceptions. The workers' cells are used for two purposes-nurseries and storage ; queens' cells as nurseries only. These are derailed contradistinctions sufficient for my purpose. Note, if the queen lays an egg in a worker cell, and within t...

FARM AND DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900

FARM AND DAIRY. -« Cream contains on an average from 50 to 55 per cent of water. In the conversion of cream into batter from 40 to 45 per cent of the water is eliminated, and from 10 to 12, and in some cases a little more, Ser cent of water remains in the utter. The reason why the pres- ence of too much water is so objec- tionable in butter ÍB because it not alone lowers the market value of the article, but renders it soft and spongy in character, and very con- siderably reduces its keeping qual- ity, whether intended for home con- sumption or for sale. From amongst the best cows of the ordinary mixed farm stock there should be selected those possessing in the highest degree the character- istics desired in the offsprings. For, say, 10 2-year-old heifers, se- lect a pure blood yearling bull that has come of stock noted for getting uniform milkers, if this be the ob- ject ; or, if beef be the object, he should be of excellent fineness, with great loins, rump and thighs, and round bar...
