Farrar's Wheats, [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 14 January 1911

Farrar's Wheats, It ia fitting that one of tho first papers tead before the Australian Science Congress Bhould memoralise the work of Mr. Farrar, as was done appropriately enough, by the great wheat breeder's successor, . Mr. Sut ton, recently. Science, as under stood from the general viewpoint, only makes olaims on behalf of ascer tained results; works silently towards achievement; and aaks for no . credit, save for a secret wrestod from nature and given to the world, a perceivable step forward towards perfection Within such a specification Mr. Far-' rar was a great scientific worker, and if the title to honor is to rest on public benefits conferred in the pur suit of science his memory is also to be acclaimed among those acliieve ers of practical results who appeal most to Lord Chelmsford. Mr. Sut ton's report of the results obtained from "Federation," generally con sidered Mr. Farrar's greatest pro duction, testifies eloquently to the improvement effected in our whoats by the qui...

ON KEEPING A DOG. "THE MORAL VALUE." [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 14 January 1911

ON KEEPING A DO<a.| "THE MORAL VALUE." (By G. K. Chesterton, in the "Dally "News.") Cynics often speak of the disillusion ing effects of experience, but I, for one have found that nearly all things not evil are better in experience than In theory. I found love with a small 1 more thrilling than Love with a laige one, and when X saw the Mediterranean it was bluer than the color blue. In the ory, for example, sleep is a negative thing, a mere cessation of life. But no thing will persuade mo ths.t sleep is not really quite positive, some mysterious pleasure which is too perfect to be re membered. It must be some drawing on our divine energies, some forgotten re freshment at the ancient fountains of life. If this Is not so, why do we cling to sleep when we have already had enough of it; why does waking up always seem like descending from heaven upon earth. I believe that sleep is a sacra ment ; or, what is the same thing, a food. , . « * * Here, however, I only want to main t...

BEEKEEPER. FAILING QUEENS. REMEDIAL MEASURES. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 14 January 1911

BEEKEEPER. FAILING QUEENS. REMEDIAL MEASURES. The approach of the honey flow in Summer (says an English apiarist) is a critical time with queens in their third year. At this period the queen in each hive Is called up on to exert her proli ficacy to its utmost, find although con stitutionally a queen looks perfect, and moves with agility, her relation with the drone may have been imperfect (unless she bas been bred by an experienced breeder). Consequently she retains less of the fertilising germs than she should have done, thus causing her to become a | drone breeder only, or she fails alto- ; gether, and she is missing at a time when her loss cannot be made good, ] unless another is purchased. The only I alternative to this is to unite two lots, I and this plan is much to be recom mended when queens arc not procurable. 1 The colonies number less, but the nu- i merical strength, which means the pro portion of adult bees over those re- J quired for brood raising, is greater, and the c...

Death of Mr. J. C Reid [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 14 January 1911

Death of Mr. J. C. Reid   -----<>-----             Yesterday we briefly announced the death of Mr. James Carson Reid, of the Club Hotel, Orange, who ex- pired yesterday afternoon after an illness of over two months, from a pulmonary affection, supervening upon a serious cold. The deceased passed hence at the comparatively early age of 46 years. Though the sad event was not unexpected, the news of his death came as a shock to the many friends in Orange. Mr. Reid came to Orange from Temora in September, 1909, when he assumed control of the business of the Club Hotel. About six month's ago Mr. Reid's health began to fail. His condition gradually grew worse, till about two months ago the malady j assested itself in a more serious form. Intermittent improvement took place, but the trouble proved increasingly serious, and the reports respecting the patient's condition prepared ...

Another Removal. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 14 January 1911

Another Removal. We have been informed that Mr. A. P. Elliott, teacher for many years at the Wallaroos Public School, and who has been for a very long period associated with the district, has been promoted to the charge of the public school at Greenthorpe. Although the departure of so familiar a figure will be much missed by a very large circle of friends, they cannot but re- joice at the preferment of a thoroughly conscientious and very worthy public servant. As Green thorpe is merely on the confines of the district, Mr. Elliott will not be very far removed from his old asso- ciates. We wish Mr. and Mrs. Elliott and family health, happiness, and prosperity in their new home. Greenthorpe is a young and thriving centre with glorious surroundings.

Obituary. THE LATE MR. J. C. REID.   The late Mr. James Carson Reid, who passed away at Orange on Wednesday afternoon, was for some years a popular resident of this district. When he first came here he engaged in agricultural pursuits, Neila Park, Morongla Creek, being then his home. Later he presided over the destinies of the Royal Hotel for several years with much success. Having disposed of his Cowra business at a good profit, he settled in Yass for a brief period, and later tried his luck at Wagga and Temora, he finally settled in Orange as pro- prietor of the Club Hotel. While in Cowra Mr. Reid largely identified himself with sport, particularly horseracing, and was a prominent member of the management of the local Jockey Club at the time of its revival after struggling existence ex- tending over many years. He was of a genial disposition, very warm- hearted, and a right loyal friend. Up to the last he took a very warm interest in Cowra and its affairs, and could b...

ABERCROMBIE CAVES. A Great Tourist Attraction of the West. PART II. (By W. H. GROSVENOR, Caretaker.) Eastern Side. Standing just within the southern entrance, which is also the entrance to the Hall of Terpsichore, is a gigantic group of extremely beautiful stalag- mites, surmounted by a cluster of ex- quisitely tinted stalactites and shawls. The giant stalagmite of this particular group reaches a height of about 60   feet, and is tinted in almost every imaginable colour. Bunches of pink and white, coral occur at intervals throughout the whole group. On the inner side of the group, which in places have united, is a delightful dia- mond cascade or frozen waterfall. The height of the fall is about 35 feet, and about 10 feet wide, and when the mag- nesium light is thrown upon it the effect is strikingly beautiful. Looking across the Arch from this point towards the western galleries, can be seen group after group of stalagmites, stalactites, and shawls, and in the distance,...
