j Tocumwal Guardian AND FINLEY PRESS P3ESS. (Established 1897) .FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 14, igoS. OURSELVES. With' this, our first issue of the "GUARDIAN ' and' FREE PRESS," readers will naturally expect that, we shoukl have something to say .about ourselves, therefore we take it that no apology is necessary under the circumstances for utilising,space which might have been devoted to' matters of 'more importance' to readers. This is not intended as an obituary article, but simply a state ment of facts in connection with the removal of the " Free Press " from Finley to Tocuinwal. I he removal has occupied the serious attention of: the owners for some considerable time, but it was only during the past ten oays tiiey most reluctantly decided in the interest of the paper to remove the plant to the river town. It is now some ten years ago1 since the "Free Press " was established, and it was ushered into existence under very favorable cir cumstances-after a wonderfully good harvest. The district...

A GREAT SYDNEY TRADING CONCERN. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 February 1908
A GREAT SYDNEY TRADING CONCERN. Our Sydney Correspondent writes: - "Whether one regards the capital of the mother State in its collective or individual aspect, ho cannot fail to be impressed with the mighty Architec tural and commercial growth that has taken place during tho last fow years. Tho volume of trade has increased by leaps and bounds, and, in keeping pice .with tho growing needs and increasing ly ivsthotic tastes of an expanding population, traders have been eon.pul ed to rebuild their promises upon a much larger scale,/ or considerably ex tend oxisting structures. A notieoablo oxamplo of this may bo seen in the Hugo edifice in Bridge Streot, wherein -is controd tho extensive business of W E, Smith, undoubtedly one of the largest, soundest and best equipped in tlie Commonwealth. Horo is a mam moth structure which, with its broad and handsome frontage of seven storoys towers high above the pavement and, regarded outwardly, speaks of solidity, capacity and thorough up-to-dat...

Some Idea of the magnitude of the scale upon which the project haa been planned may be withered from the fact that It will cost £200,000 to lay out the grounds and erect the administrative buildings, and liming the six months-from May to October-that It will remain opeii, the Agent-General has expressed the opinion that It will be visited by at least 12,000,000 spectators.

THEATRES IN MID-ATLANTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 February 1908
THEATRES IN MID-ATLANTIC. Plays, it is expected, will shortly bo perfohned in mid-Atlantic.

But the expense of Liking a theatrical company across the Atlantic Is very great, and this, It is suggested, might be more easily borne If plays were produced during tho jour, ney. Nowadays liners carry a band, and the huge dining saloons, being fitted with small tables instead of long cum brous tables, could, It is said, be easily adapted for the purpose of an audi torium. Mr Frohmun considers that a com...
CAKE OF WINDOW PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 February 1908
CAKE or WINDOW PLANTS. bright window plants are a welcome mid it Ion to any sitting-room, and parti cularly so during the summer months. Plants which appear sickly are suffer ing, In nine cases out of ten, from pure starvation. Probably they have been growing In the same mould for one, two, or ever three years. All nutriment has consequently becomc quite exhausted, and the remedy Is fresh soil. An old pair of gloves will usefully pro tect the hands. Wo will assume that the re-potting is done Indoors, say on the kitchen table, which has first been . covered with two or three sheets of newspaper. The new soli should be ar ranged In a small hetip at one end of the table, and the plants to be dealt with at the other. Good medium loam Is best for most plants. A small quantity may bo pur chased at any nurseryman's for a trifle, or, If you June a garden, let It be freshly taken from there. It must, be quite fine, A medium condition Is best, neither too wet nor too dry. If purchasing from a...
Selection and Care of Seed Maize. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 February 1908
Selootlon and Caro of Seed Maize. . The Importance of properly selecting and caring^for seed maize (writes A. T. ^Vlancko of the Purdue Agricultural University, U.S.A.) has been so tho roughly discussed and brought to the at tention of farmers in every conceivable Way during the last feu' years that there can be no adequate excuse for any maize grower neglecting to save a good supply of seed and put U up In a safe, dry place before killing frosts occur. There is plenty oE evidence to convince even thej most unreasonable man that tire time to get the best seed maize Is early In the autumn, when It can be selected from the standing.stalks and put away ?'in a dry, well-ventilated place. The great majority of farmers do not get more thun three-quarters of a full stand of maize in their fields, and the result Is 20 per cent, less yield at har vest time. The^cause of the imperfect stand nearly always lies'in the use of poor seed for planting. All seed maize should be gathered be fore the ...
FARM AND FIELD. Pasturage and Stall Feeding. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 February 1908
FARM AND FIELD. Pnstnrngo asd Stall Feeding. The. comparative effects of stall-feed ing and pasturago from tho point of view of physiology and breeding- formed tho subject of two papenft-ead at the Inter national Vterlnary Congrese'at Vienna, In both of which Uio Importance of feed ing In the field wus emphasised as a means of maintaining the health and strength of the race, says tho "Board of Agriculture Journal." M. de- ICovacsy pointed out that an animal kept in tho stall Is deprived of the hardening Influ ence of nature; its organism Is weak ened,- and it loses Its capacity to resist disease. It Is principally through stall feeding that tuberculosis Is most effectu ally propagated, for the stalls are mostly dark and'badly ventilated, so that dis ease germs accumulate and are Inhaled by healthy animals. In the case of pas lurage, infection of this kind occurs far less often. Consequently tuberculosis and other diseases are found In a much fiilghtor proportion among animals kept p...
OUR EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 February 1908
OUR EDUCATION. Dr Dtibbs makes a protest in " Fry's Magazine" against over-education and "scholastic forcing-houses." He says. "The long school* hours to which chil dren are being subjected will soon%bree;l a race of aupcrncialiBcd prigs, if allowed to go on;" while tlw training by observa tion, which mlgh't be an open-air train ing, Is not encouraged enough. It is nl! very well to cultivate learning( which is not knowledge, by any means), but healthy l>odle« ought to be maintained at n health-standard A3 a primary duty, and evening ie?sons of the preparatory kind, by artlflclul'llght too (and in cities. God help us!), when the young wood of thu. young bow ought to be relaxed, arc all wrong-and utterly wrong." Dr 33-abbs is not afraid of."a race'of fools." Kft ;s afraid of "a race of rickety hu man encyclopieOiettes, who are a nui sance to everyone and a health draw back." ....... - - _
Tar Treatment for Rabbits. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 February 1908
Tar Trontment for Rabbits. Mr E. R. Scott Inspector of stock Jit Moree, New South Wales, supplies the following description of successful rab bit treatment: Take a bundle of grass or straw tho size of the opening of the burrow to be operated upon, and tie a parcel of batsglng about '6in. in width on the end of this.- Dip the bagging end in coal tar, and stuff the- bundle, tarred end first, into the borrow as far "as it will go, then fill in the mouth of the burrow irith earth, and the operation Is com plete. ... All similar openings should bo treated hi the same way. It woulcl n.Ctnraiiy bo concluded that the rabbits would immediately burrow out, but the fact is" that they do not do so, but die In the burrows. This system has been tried with completa j success in the district. J On most holdings, especially in farm ing districts, the cost of the tar would be tho only*item outside of labor; oid bags and straw being usually on*hand. Digging out the burrows Is admitted | to be one of t...

THE SIMPLE DIET. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 February 1908
THE SIMPLE DIET. A simple diet does not necessarily moan a strict vegetarian diet (says Mr. Hermann Senn, director of the Cookery Exhibition in London), but it should consist of plain wholesome food. Less meat should be oaten, and tlio more frequent uso of such valuable nutrients as pons, beans, lentils, oatmeal, whole meal bread,, and cheese cannot bo loo strongly urged upon, those who need to .economise in expenditure on food. Anyone accustomed to a liberal diet of flesh food may gradually reduce the amount by substituting cheese for some of the meat, and sonic of the ch?osc in its turn may bo replaced by whole meal broad without loss of strength. A very large percentage of those who think tlioy cannot digest cheese will find themselves mistakon if they "begin with a small amount, and with it cnt rather stale white bread, or oven whole meal bread. Salt is necessary to ren der food palatable, . but other condi ments, sauces and pickles, should be altogether avoided or used very spa...

IF MOSQUITOES WERE LIKE EAGLES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 February 1908
IF MOSQUITOES WERE LIKE EACLES. A naturalist asks us to think,what things would bo like' if some insects were only bigger, and man were &lt;f> iHHsimw the hunted i»stoad of hunter. Some insects lay n^gs at tho rate of sixty a minute, or eighty thousand a day, and from tho egg to full maturity of the young insect occupies only a few hours. Insects constitute by far tho greatest group of living creatures 011 tho globe. Tho most conservative es timate places tho number of species alono at five millions. Thoy feed on every part of every'plant that grows, and also upon dead plant .tissue in overy stage of decay. Thoy will even eat soil mould. They prey upon all forms of animal life, devour not only living meat, but dead and putrid flesh. All oxcrementitious substances aro dainties to them, and 110 fabric is. too dry for their taste. .
