A Minister on Dandyism. Reid United Free Church, Hurlford, was thronged to its utmost capacity on a recent Sunday when the Rov. Somer ville Reid lectured to young men and women on "A Man TVho Would Re n Dandy." A queue of people appeared at the church door long before the ap pointed hour of service, and to prevent over-crowding the doors were shut ns soon as all the extra seats wero filled. Talcing ns his definition of a dandy the witty epigram "A dandy is a man who would Be a women if he could. But as he can't does all he can To show the world he's not a man" the preacher gavo a piquant and pithy sketch of Absalom, showing how lie played that role to perfection. There after he touched on modern dandyism, and said the only Trinity to which some bright youths did homage was made up of their tailor, hairdresser, and haberdasher. Oliver Wendell Holmes had said it took a good deal of pluck to bo a real dandy, and there was cor roboration of this in the saying of a general that Ills dand...

King Eduard as a Racing Man. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

King Eduard as a Racing Man. According to a good many critics, the English turf is having an undue and unfortunate nnmbor -of ovil momenta just now; and throe supporters of it aro being watched with a good deal of anxiety. If these men retired from it to-morrow, howover careful and solf ovidont their nominal excuse might bo. a debacle would sot in, the end of which is easy to foresee. One of these mon is His Majesty the King. "What makes the King a model sports man in everybody's eyes, and what would make him a great influence m the racing world if ho woro just a Nor folk country gentloman, is the thoroughly "human" nature of his in terest in racing. Ho knows a good horse whon ho sees it, is frankly de lighted at having ono of his own, is frankly disappointed when some highly bred youngster turns out to bo worth less ; and when ho goes to a race meet ing, gives himself up to the afternoon s business with an onjoymont which might infect the most sated spectator.

Making Stack Ensilage. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

Malting Stncli Ensilage. Aiaize and sorghum are generally usad for the- purpose of making stack ensil age. The first consideration for this Is to secure a site In cfosc proximity to the milking or feeding sheds. An elevnted spot is best, with natural dralnageAand a firm, dry surface layer, of soil to start on, and, if possible, sheltered from pre vailing winds. It Is essential to sur round the stack with a fence sufficiently substantial to prevent stack of any kind reaching the fodder. Without thte, calves, pigs, horses, and cattle arc al ways attracted.They draw out stalks all round to get at the ed;fJle p.ortlon, and by this means admit air to the stack, check the fermentative changes, and spoil It. for fodder. In order to abandon the somewhat cumbersome and expensive methods usually adopted, ol weighting by the application of me chanical pressure to the stack, It Is necessary to stack very carefully, and a dexterous manipulation of the sheavoB Is rcqulre.1, In laying and cross-la...

CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

CHAPTER XII. Knglaml, farewellJ fresh shores will riso When thy white cliffs aro lost to viow. With othor climes and cloarer skies, But will thoir hearts like thine be true? -Author's Scrap-book. When Beatrix Challonor had heard her lover's determination to pursue his jour ney to Russia, the high-spirited girl ap proved of his decision. The effort to dis cover the proofs of his birth was duo alike, sho considered, to the memory of jtis parents, his own honor, and the gen erous friendship of her father. "Wo are both .young," she said, "a year's absenco will give mo time to im prove myself, to ronder mo more worthy of you." Charles, with all proper gallantry, de clared "it was impossible." In his eyes 'ho already was perfection. And audi wero his honest convictions. f,ove had blinded him to what had form .;«>rly appeared the defects in her charac ter, or rather her education.

Indigestion in Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

Indigestion in Horses. Indigestion Is often Induced by keep ing horses In badly ventilated stables; -paying no attention to grooming; over working the horses In times' of stress; allowing too little time for the proper mastication of food at the noon hour, giving cool water too seldom, and then Jn too large quantities, or too soon after a meal; feeding corn or other heating food during.hot weather, or giving bran _mashes to horses not oecustomed to such food; allowing them to eat cut grass that has heated, or feeding new oats or new hay before the food has be come fit by ageing* . . In other words, almost anything that disturbs the general feeding habits of the horse will affect his digestive or gans In hot weather, and such distur bance makes turn subject to heat ex haustion. This being tho case, the greatest possible attention should >ba paid by every farmer and horse owner to the general health of his horses dur ing the heated 4prm of summer, and especially If much hard work h...

Berrigan News. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

Berrigan News. A large and enthusiastic crowd of all sects met on Wednesday even ing of last week at the School of Arts for the purpose of presenting the . Rev. Father Vaughan with a testimonial on the attainment of his silver jubilee as a Priest. Mr E. J. Gorman, chair man, in presenting the address ac companied by a purse containing 1.30 sovereigns spoke in a most eulogistic manner of the many good qualities of the recipient both as a R.C. Priest and a citizen. Messrs Verso, Pyle, Gregory. Nicholas, Dr. Heald and others endorsed all that had been said by the chairman. The Rev. Father, who was much affected; thanked them from the bottom of his heart, and alluded feelingly to the good fellowship of the various Creecis as showed by the presence of the Pastors and people of other congregations. The ladies also, through Mrs E. J. Gorman, pre sented him with an address and a gold watch, as a token of regard on behalf of the ladies of the congrega tion. The ladies provided the re freshme...

FARM AND FIELD. Value of Deep Silos. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

FARM AHD FIELD. Value of Dcop Silos. A deep alio is preferable to a shallow one, as more ensilage can bo stored Id the same number of cubic feet. The pres sure Is greater, consequently the con tents pack more closely. Tho extra weight of ensilago In a deep silo more thoroughly excludes tho air, ari for this reason the silage keeps better. If .built high, Instead of wide, more ensilage will be removed from tho surface dally. This will guard against spoiled feed. The deep silo requires less foundation wall, less cement floor space, and less roof, which In somo localities, and with cer tain kinds of silos, is an advantage. Less help is required In spreading tho sllago In a deep pit. The spoiled silage at tho top Is less In proportion to tho wholQ amount.

Water for Berrigan and Finley. Councillor's Views [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

Water for Berrigan Finley. Councillor's Views We have imicll pleasure in notify ing (writes the "Advocate") that the scheme proposed by Cr. A. J. Macpherson to supply Berrigan with water, has been found what he claimed for it, quite practicable. The engineer (Mr Callaway) made a flying survey of the route last week, and he found that by raising the water to a height of 61 feet above summer, level, a fall of a foot in the mile is obtained right to Berrigan. The spot chosen for the pumping station is situated about two miles east of Cr. HefTer nan's residence, at a point the en gineer has dubbed " Rocky Point." From there the watercourse would run through Boomanoomaua Station then through Heffernan's property, back into the station again, then past the north east corner of Ken nedy's, into Naranghi, then back to the station again, where it would cross a dry creek, which would necessitate a siphon 45 chains in length. From thence the track would be through S. M. -Brown's ] property, an...

Utilising Waste Bones. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

Utilising Waste Bones. The following arc amongst the best methods of utilising waste bones on the farm, and converting them into manure: when it is not feasible to grind them. They may be decomposed and rendered more active by mixing them with about one-fourth their weight of loam, and, keeping the heap moist with stable liquor or urine. The heap should be pro tected tfrom rain. By this process thero Is a loss of nitrogen, but the phosphate Is rendered more readily available and proportionately increased. This is a, . method that deserves to be made use of; where bones are plentiful, and there is. no means of reducing them to powder. Thirty to forty bushels per acre is the proportion recommended for grass lands. Another method of fermenting bones is as follows:-They may be softened by mixing In heaps . with quicklime and loam.. A layer six inches deep of bones, j then a layer 3in deep of lime, and then a layer about 4ln deep of loam, and «o on repeating until the heap is made of con...
