NATIONAL THRIFT AND COMPULSORY SORY VOTING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

NATIONAL THRIFT AND COMPULSORY VOTI'NG.■ ,/Y ■ S ■ A chat about the Commonwealth Banking Bill,, and polities generally, gave rise to the following expression of opinion from a very old farmer close to Forbes. He considered that a Bill should be introduced to make it compulsory for every person over the age of 21 (with the necessary exemptions) to exercise the franchise, under a penalty of, say, £5. He would also make it compulsory for every voter to produce a bank book, showing a credit of at least £ 5. By this means, he considered that a system of thrift would be instilled into the hearts of the people, and the compulsory vote would make for the advancement of our Commonwealth, by causing the body politic to take a greater interest in the Government than they did at present. This gentleman also has some advanced ideas on State boundaries, and tlieir curses, and promised to express himself more fully at a later date.

THROUGH THE DISTRICT. PLENTY OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

THROUGH THE DISTRICT. PLENTY OF WATER. (By Our Travelling Representative). Water, water everywhere, and in most cases welcome- water, but, sad to say, in some cases, the recent heavy downpour has caused losss to some of the farmers in our district. One case in particular is worthy of note. Mr D. Morgan, of Southern Cross, "Orange Road, had the finest looking crop for miles around, and whereas he is getting just about 13 bushels to the. acre, a tour over the area stripped shows that almost as much has been missed by the harvester, on account of the heavy rains having levelled the best part of the crop. This and other instances of the harm done to our wheat crops by our summer rain makes one inclined to the belief that the old method of cutting and threshing will haye to be reverted to, if the whole of the crop is to be secured. Mr Hugh Sweeney, of Cherry Tree Hill, has been successfully using a many pronged extra comb, which he has fitted to his harvester. The prongs glide along thro...

Chats on Different Topics with Different People. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

Ghats on Different Topics with Different People. (By Our Travelling Representative.;) In my travels as the "advocate" of "The Forbes Advocate," it is only natural. that I. should at various times become engaged in conversation on topics as apart-as the poles, and many of the people with whom I have changed ideas have expressed a wish to see their views in print, with a view of learning what other people thought of the subjects under review.

MR TURNER WRITES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

MR TURNER WRITES. Mr Fred. Turner, F.L.S., writes: — Whilst in the country I read with very great interest the account in the "Sydney Morning Herald" of Dr. J. M. Petrie's discovery of hydrocyanic acid (prussic acid) in the introduced South African grass, Cynodon incompletum. I was also particularly intex-ested in the account of Dr. Petrie's investigations of the native couch, Cynodon dactylon, for he stated that he had failed to find that, poison in the several samples of the grass he had examined. That really confirms what I published 20 years ago regarding the great economic value of the native couch grass. . In 1891 the Government of New South Wales instructed me to figure, and fully describe the native couch, and the then Minister for Agriculture authorised these to be published in the "Agricultural Gazette," vide, vol. II., plate XXIV., page 238. My figure of the native couch has been repub\x=req-\ lishe/l.-and my description of it not\x=req-\ ed'in this-aM •ctlieT countries. ...

MR CHEEL'S VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

CHEEL'S VIEWS. Mr Edwin Cheel, of Pensliurst\x=req-\ street, Penshurst, writes to the "Sydney Morning Herald" as follows on ;the subject: — "The grass in which Dr. Peti'ie has found hydrocyanic acid present, has only been found so far as I know in the Muswellbrook district, and is known locally under the name 'blue couch,' and is a very close relative of the common ^Australian couch' (Cynodon dactyIon), and to the ordinary observer may easily be mistaken for that species. . In fact, it was previously mistaken for the common 'couch grass,' until I pointed out some few months ago that, although the grasses very closely resembled each other, there were some very important structural differences between them. "Specimens, together with drawings, showing the differences between the so-called 'blue couch' from Mus\x=req-\ wellbrook, were exhibited by me on behalf of Mr Maiden, at the last meeting of the Linnean Sociey on November 29. As the 'blue couch' was suspected of poisoning a conside...

"bots seen in regard to the subject the "Sydney Morning Herald" saia—"There is a note entitled 'Poisonous Couch Grass' in the "herald,' in which .t.he very pardonable error of confusing two • Wue couch grasses is made-. Since other persons have confused them also, and the matter is of some importance, t will clear the matter up. "In 1907 I inquired into the deaths of stock at Aberdeen and Mus\x=req-\ wellbrook from eating a certain grass. This was known locally as blue couch. Most of the grass was closely crox>\x=req-\ ped, but a little time afterwards I obtained specimens of this grass in flower, and determined it to be our common couch (Cynodon dactylon). I may mention that this is the couch which is found so abundantly in the coastal districts of New South Wales, and Queensland, and...

TEMORA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

TEMORA. In the new year there should be some startling developments In the several gold discoveries in the province. The Merrul Creek field is sure to engage a good deal of attention, and properties will become considerably enhanced in value. It is held by competent miners who have inspected the stone paddocked on M'Lean's mine that the return therefrom will be about £12,000 worth of the precious -metal. What the average yield of wheat will be in the Temora pi'ovince is not easily determined. Some crops are returning as much as 10 and 13 bags per acre. At Kildary 13 bags, and at Beckom and Ardlethan 12 bags are being filled per acre. Mr W. Fisher, of "Rowallan," has stripped 131 bags an acre. It is hardly necessary to say that there are crops which will return only two or three bags an acre, but there seems much to encourage the belief that the average return will be quite 13 bushels an acre for the province. The storm which visited Ariah Park and other portions of the pro-' vince o...

AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL NOTES. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND. CLARENCE RIVER DISTRICT. ROTATION OF CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

MltlOULTUML & PASTORAL ROTES. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND. (Issued by the Department of Agriculture). CLARENCE RIVER DISTRICT. ROTATION OR CHOPS. It speaks well for the natural "fertility of the soil on the Clarence when some farmers have grown maize in\x=req-\ the same paddock continually for 40 years. This type of farmer is a believer in a flood occasionally, and, like the cultivators on the Nile, has faith in the fertilising influence of the silt\x=req-\ charged waters, which have on previous occasions spread over the cultivated lands bordering ' the river. While this may be so, floods in this locality—although there has not been a. big flood for nearly twenty years— are ail-undesirable, and altogether ' unnecessary,,auxiliary to successful, farming in thege inherently fertile districts. ~s\x=req-\ These localities are specially adapted for mixed farming. Therefore, rotation of crops, aiid the attendant maintaining of the kpil in a fit condition during any season of the year,...
