Quality of Federation Wheat. IS IT DETERIORATING ? Mr. G. L. Sutton, West Austral ian Wheat Commissioner, writes us (Cowra"Free Press") as follows in regard f ■) !hf much vexed ques tion as to i M- alleged deterioration of thft late y.v in. Farrer's old favor ite, " Federation" :— " I was greatly surprised to learn from your letter that there is an impression that " Federation " ia showing signs of decadence. I find great diflieulty in believing that tiiis is the case. There is no reason why its qualities should deterior ate. As the result of its breeding, it has cortain qualities which make it superior in many respects to oth er well-known sorts. I believe these are just as staple and lixed as the characteristic] of any of the older varieties, say 1'urple Straw. If there is anything in " Mendelism," this is certainly the case. Similar statements re deterioration of other varieties have been made in the past, and I have had to investigate several of these. The result of the investig...

No Work on Saturdays. LABOR UNION COMMITTEE'S OPPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 17 January 1912
Mo Work on Saturdays. ? LABOR UNION COMMITTEE'S OPPOSITION. If the Eight Hours Committee in Sydney adopts the decision of a special committee appointed to in vestigate the five days' week idea with no work oil Saturdays, it will declare that this method of working &lt;1S hours is antagonistic to the fundamental principle of the organi sation. The special committee was ap pointed just before the end of the year, after several city firms had adopted the no-Saturday system, Their investigations, it is stated, led them to believe that the inno vation was jiot altogether welcomed by the employees. They found that those who appeared to appreciate th change wave a few of the vivacious young ladies who were enabled to spend Saturday on a holiday jaunt. The male folk, however, mostly dis liked the new arrangement, because they considered that high pressure spread over 9% hours for five days was much more severe than the old systom, and that they were compelled to speiul Saturday, not...

CURRAN DEVONPORT DRAMATIC COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 17 January 1912
CUKJKAX 1)15 YON PORT DRAMATIC COMPANY. Tlie Curran Devonport Dramatic Company was tlie attraction in the Town Hall on Friday night last for a crowded house. The play staged was "The Man They Could Not Hang," and its intensely exciting character served to keep the inter est of the large audience at a high pitch throughout the evening. The play was excellently staged, and the \arious artists x'crl'ornicd in a man ner highly creditable to themselves and provocative of general apprecia tion and applause from the audi ence. The company appeared again on Saturday night, when the fami liar drama, "Kast Lynno," was staged. But the week end is in variably a bad night for travelling companies in Forbes, and the audi ence was scarcely a representative one.
SHIRE ROADS AND PLANT WORK [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 17 January 1912
I 8HIKE ltOAJDS AND PLANT WORK A Jemalong Shire ratepayer who signed the petition recently presen ted to the Council against the pur chase of additional road making plant expressed in conversation a day or two ago his objection to (lie plant work. With the plant, he pointed out, the roads were not made wide enough, and he urged j that it was necessary to have the formation of sufficient width to en able two loaded drays to pass one another without fear of either of them being bogged in the soft earth generally met with at the side of the metal. He instanced one of the roads made by the aid of the plant as not being wide enough for that purpose, and urged that it was a reasonable thing to ask that roads should be wide enough for traffic requirements, even if the construc tion did not proceed quite at the same pacc. It would be interest ing to have some explanation on this as to whether the plant used is not capable of making wider roads, or why, if it is, they are not so j made. Or i...
MONDAY'S WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 17 January 1912
MONDAY'S WEATHER. The climatic conditions that pre vailed on Monday were such as to render them worthy of a paragraph on that subject alone. The day dawned close and sultry, and as the hours advanced the heat became more intense until by midday the thermometer registration was consid erably ahead of what it has previ ously been during this summer. The maximum official registration at the post office was 106.3 degrees. To make matters more disagree able still, a strong wind accompan ied by constant clouds of dust -was in evidence. About three o'clock in the afternoon a heavy storm began to rise, and for a time the wind blew and the thunder roared, and the lightning flashed in lively style, until half an hour later the wel come rain came to relieve the op pression. The storm lasted till close on to five o'clock, by which time the atmosphere was consider ably cooler but still close. At nine o'clock at niglit another wind and rain storm broke, and continued un til about eleven. The wind...
