The Transvaal. BATTLE OF KAREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 6 April 1900
Tha Transvaal. [By Telegraph.] BATTLE 'OF KAREE. Commandant Smuts,' ? who had charge of the Boer forces at Karee, had his Column largely composed of Johannes berg police. The Boer defeat is ascribed to the flanking movements of Lieutenant General French's cavalrv, and Maior GeneralLe Gallia's mounted Infantry. The Boers retreated to the ^centre on . the edge of a steep donga. A heavy ^shell fire compelled them to retire.' The New South Wales Mounted Rifles stormed the second position on the enemy's left, BLOEMFONTEIN. The Water supply at Bloemfontein has ibeenjcut off by the enemy. LATE GENERAL JOUBERT.

The practicability as well as the advisa bility of constructing a series of weirs on the Belubula River for tho conservation of water during droughts is at present arresting public attention, and wo con sider it not altogether out of place to mako a cursory review of this important project by unbiasedly pointing out the, j pros and cons of such movement. That weirs and locks would be of an immense ' Ijojjefit and advantage to our pnfifcpralif.ts and farmes is not to be gainsaid, but the method most suitable and most en durable, combined with the least possible expense, should be considered in the first i)i. stance, 'The weir at present under construction on the Laohlan just beiow Cowya is generally condemned, as it is contended to be , impossible to .keep water back^-more particularly daring flood time — bv erecting a dam made of S^ud q.nd timber on top of the river drift.

The Urgent Need of A Railway. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 6 April 1900
The Urgent Hee4 of A Railway. To show the imperative need of a Railway to Canowindra, many farmers have pointed out to us the loss they are likely to entail through the expense of cartage and lowness of prices. Oqly last week one of our farmers paid £27 10s for the cartaga of 550 bags of wlieat . to Cowra Railway Station, and adding to that the cost of railway freight, com mission etc., at the present ruling prices, he may oonsider himself luoky if the balance after sales, comes out on the right side of the ledger. Another far mer has over 200 tons of chaff on hand, which through present rates will not pay tp moye ; two others have 100 tons and 150 tons respectively lying useless and many others with smaller amounts Qn hand are raising the sanje Qutcrj', We all know that our Railway League Committee cannot do impossibilities, but they can constantly and pepsistently stir up the powers that be, and evesn if not successful in obtaining this greatly required want, will by tliGir earnes...

Poultry Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 12 April 1900
Poultry Slates. The following, taken from the ' Far mers' Co-operative News,' will, we think, prove of considerable value to to local keepers of poultry : — MOULTING. This is the time of year when poulte}' ]!!!Pn i°. mou.ft, and breeders should treat their stock so that they will cast tneir feathers with as little trouble as possible. xtie moulting- is an operation which usuauy takes place every .year, and consists of casting one set of feathers and ^em by entirety new ones. Moulting makes a considerable demand on the system. The time during which birds are moulting is a somewhat critical period, its nature depending very much upon the stamina and constitution of the breed, ifiere is a considerable amount of dif ference m the way in which the various breeds come through the moult. Some or the harder varieties pass through it both rapidly and easily,, while others find it most protracted and difficult. The 'Usua, period of moulting for a strong bird in. its first or second year is si...

Euchred. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 12 April 1900
Euchred. TIT'S Parly eighties, whan the grant Trunk Railway now passing through the interior of Australasia was only in its infancy the contractors had large gangs of men employed on the line, forming ! camps many miles apart, the line being built in sections. Adventurous store and boarding house keepers followed the ; various camps from point to point, amongst them being the inevitable sly-.| erosf-shanty keeper. J Though not actually belonging to the mounted police I had a good deal to do with them through my own special line of business, and had 011 more than or^ occasion rendered them no inconsider- 1 able assistance in the many multifarious duties necessarily imposed upon far out lying police stations. The head station was composed of an out-of-date sergeant and six troopers — the latter without doubt the pick of the police force. One evening, sitting outside my camp having a quiet smoke, after just returning from a long and most trying ride in the broiling sun, Trooper Con. O'...
The Cyanide Process. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 12 April 1900
The Cyanide Process. By A* '\VY Pearce. Many people connected with, and even in, the mining line are not acquainted with ' cyanidmg ' any more than know ing that it is a process for extracting gold from ores, but what form the pro cess takes they do not know. In the j following remarks I will try to explain the outline of the process, not for the professional or scientific, but for the public j generally. ? j uyanme solution is made by dissolving i cyanide of potassium in water — lib of cyanide makes 1001b. of water 1 per cent strong. I find a 3 per cent, solution a very elective working solution. Suppos ing the ore to be treated to be battery sand : tests are made on samples of the sand— (1) To find out if the sand is suitable for treatment by cyanide process, i (2) To find out if the sand contains acidity. (3) To find out length of time to leach and strength of solution that will be most effective. The sand is now placed in vats, and if it contains acid ( 1) a caustic soda wash is...
Letters From the Front. TROOPER MULLAMPY. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 12 April 1900
' Letters Fram ths FrsmJ. TROOPER MULLAMPY. Extracts from a letter received by Miss Mullampy from her brother, Trooper J. Mullampy, New South Wales Mounted Rifles. Late of Trafalga, near Ganowindra. Osfoktein, 3rd March, 1900. I am just writing a few lines to let you know that I am all right up to date ; in fact, I never felt better, and I am half a stone heavier than when I left Bathurst. That will seem strange to you, after reading in the papers that we are often on short rations, but as the Rifles are the advance scouts, we get to all the farms first and ' cop ' whatever is to be had in the way of eatables — and we make some great hauls at times. I suppose you have read that we had the satisfaction of drawing the first fire in the battle of Bank's Drift, where Cronje surrendered. And it was something like a fire, too, for there must have been .5000 rifles opened fire at once on our front, at about 300 yards, and that con founded pom pom on our left, and there was only one man hit...
Sporting Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 12 April 1900
Sporting Notes. [By 'Beggak Boy.'] Mr. A. Robinson's pony Little Katie, secured first prize for best buggy pony j under 14 hands at the late Orange Show, beating 14 competitors including some of the best buggy ponies in the western district. She also put up a record for Australia for her height, in the pony trot, making Mr. J. A. Buckland's standard bred trotting mare Daybreak, run the 2 mile in 5min 36sec. I may here mention that Daybreak is a full sister to Mr. J. Swindle's trotting stallion Don Cleve, being by Van Cleave, (sire of Fritz) out of Moonbeam, by Childe Harold. To show the excellence of the performance of the pony, from the time point of view, it took the big horses in the Time Federal Handicap Trot 5min .ISsec to trot the two mile. Little Katie has been forwarded to Sydney to compete in the champion 14 hand pony trot, all oft' scratch, to take place on The Royal Agricultural Show Ground Sydney, on ihe 19th inst.

We have been under fire seveiai times now — au^mas oirme utrw and artillery, not forgetting the ' pom pom ' which throws one pound shells 60 a minute. She is a little champion, and up till lately the pom pom was used by the Boers only, but a few days ago a battery of 4 of them came into our camp. We have had 6 men wounded, one man — Flint of Forbes was shot throuhg the chest, his case being a bad one. Tweedie also of Forbes, was shot through the hip.
