OBITUARY. DEATH OF FATHER AND SON. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 February 1910
OBITUARY. DEATH OF FATHER AND SON. Our Eugowra correspondent writes :— It is with feelings of profound regret that I have to chronicle the deaths of Mr Jas. Dwyer and Mr Andrew Dwyer (father and son respectively) which sad events took place in the Forbes Hospital on Wednesday morning last, the father breathing his last about 2. a.m. and the son about 6 a.m. About four weeks ago ' Andy,' as he was familiarly called, and a popular young man of our town- ship, contracted typhoid fever, and went into the Forbes Hospital for treatment. The doctors and nurses, knowing the sad history of the Dwyer family (typhoidd fever being responsible for the deaths of two of his sisters during the proceeding 12 months), did everything humanely possible to save his life, and for a time they had hopes, but other complications set in and he died as stated. About ten days after the admittance of the son the father also contracted the dread disease, aud he also went into the Forbes hospital for treatment. H...

Walli. TUESDAY, 8th FEBRUARY. (From our Correspondent.) DEATH OF MR. GLASSON. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 February 1910
Walli. TUESDAY, 8th FEBRUARY, (From our Correspondent.) DEATH OF MR. GLASSON. Quite a gloom was cast over this district yesterday, when it became known that Mr J F Glasson, of '"Shiel," had passed over to the great majority, after a short and painful illness. I am not in a position to give paiticulars of the sad event, and no doubt those will be supplied from another quarter, but I wish to express our deep and heartfelt sympathy with the bereaved family and relatives in their hour of sorrow, and to say that death has deprived us of a gentleman we could ill afford to lose—one always ready to assist in any movement that was for the benefit and advancement of the district, or assist an individual needing and de- serving of help. He was fair and im- partial in his different public positions, and esteemed and respected by one and all. That the deceased's real worth was recognised and appreciated was amply demonstrated by the fact that perhaps the largest cortege that has ever been seen i...

ROMANCE OF A BABY. TO BUY AN HEIR. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 February 1910
ROMANCE OF A BABY. TO BUY AN HEIR. MYSTERIOUS OFFER OF £1200. A correspondent of tho London "Dally Hail" writes from Paris on the 28th of August:— A romantic affair, the outstanding fea ture of which is an attempt by an un known wealthy Englishwoman to pur chase an heir at the price of L1200, is oc cupying the attention of the Paris police. Early this month a young ivoman named Jeanne Lanne was lying In a free maternity home. While there she re ceived a visit from an older woman, a mid-wife named Yvert, who made a re markable proposal. She said that she knew of a noble English woman who had been disappoin ted in the expected birth of an heir, and who thereby lost a legacy of many thou sand pounds. None of the English woman's relatives knew of the true state of things. Mme. Yvert therefore pro posed to Joanne Lanne that the latter should make over her baby to her in re turn for a sum of L1200. If the ch'id lived over twelve months Lanne was to receive a further sum of L1000. After a ...
LIONS FOR THE KING. LATEST ADDITIONS TO THE ZOO. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 February 1910
LIONS FOR THE KING. LATEST ADDITIONS TO THE ZOO. A highly interesting addition was made to the large family at the Zoologi cal Gardens l>y the arrival on 7th Sep tember of a pair o£ lion cubs, a present to King Edward from a dusky potentate named the Shehu of J3ornu, in Northern Nigeria. Receiving prompt intimation that the visitors had reached the Zoo, a represen tative of the "Daily News" made an early call upon them — after they had breakfasted. He found them located In a spacious euged apartment In the XjIuii House, with other lions old enough to be their grandfathers near by, but to them Invisible. With the trustfulness and adaptability o£ childhood the infantile lions, a boy and a girl, although they had only arrived, from Plymouth at 10 o'clock, had already made themselves at home. Having been well fed, for youngsters, they were in capital spirits, and, indeed, quite frisky, evidently none the worse for their long inland Journey In Africa to the coast and their sea voyage....

Dairying on Costly Land. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 February 1910
Dairying on Costly ILaiid. Why is dairying in Holland prosperous in spite of her high-priced lands, high taxes and other high costs of production? (asks a farmer in the "New York Far mer"). ,The milk cows of Holland aver age 4227 quarts of milk per head per .year, on a conservative estimate.' "There is the one plain fact .that: underlies the most successful dairy practice on earth. The Hollanders have for centuries '.bred cows for milk. They have bred big cows. They have fed and housed them scienti fically. They desired- milk to 'drink;.- to sell, and to churn. They have as the result of their work those two famous breeds of cows known as the Dutch Belted and Holstein-Friesian. . They keep these cows bred , up and fed up to a standard that, means an average yearly production of 4227 quarts, or over 90001b., of milk per head. That is to Say the Holland farmers on their L100 to L400 an aci'e dairy land milk cows that surpass the "show" cows of the Ameri can experiment: stations and th...

Removing Bees. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 February 1910
Removing Bees. When removing bar-framed hives by road or rail, the entrance in each should be closed to li inches or less, and a ii'.ece of perforated zinc should be tacked over it with tin tacks. The entrance slides should bo fastener' with small screws to prevent them siipping, and the floor board should, be secured with 1% inch screws into the side of the outer case, two screws at least being used in each .'(tie. The risers and covers should also bo screwed' in the same way, and a stout cord fastened securely over, the hive, running from back to front and from si cite to side. If thisis carefully done (He hives may be sent any dis tance) .•without fear of a mishap. A simple plan to'secure the inside or body box is to have two pieces of wood' the length of the inner chamber —from oho inch to three inches wide. Lay , these on the frames atovo ,-hc cover:tic:, and secure with screws at the front.and back.

' When chopping suet, If 11 la sprinkled with a little ground rice It will not stick j to the knife, and will chop quite easily. Stains on knives, however obstinate or ( of long standing', will disappear If rub bed with a piece of raw potato dipped : in brickdust. The application of a bit of soap on the r point of a lead pencil to a creaky hinge j will cure its stiffness und silence Its complaints. Medicine stains on silvers spoons may J bo displaced if rubbed with sulphuric acid: wash with soapsuds, and then clean In- the usual way. Before frying bacon soak it In water for three or four minutes. This will prevent the fat from running, and will make the bacon go further.

Using Comb On Supers. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 February 1910
Using Comb Oil Supers. Practical beekeepers, who are* con-1 tinuall.v noticing: anything that tolls in favor of full supers, find a great advantage accruing from the: use of. combs, both in sections and frames,' in the first supers. It is the start! that bees must be * encouraged tal make, and this is best done by plac-l ing in every crate frames or soctfons' partly or wholly filled' with comb1, saved from last season. He is indeed a fortunate man who has not a cer itain proportion of partly-filled soc-^ tions at the end of the season. Thcso !should not be melted 'down, but ■ placed together in a crate after all the cell-cappings have been, destroyed, and given .to a strong stock of bees , to clear out." These combed sections are; very valuable, as any beekeeper who possesses them will; quickly find out; It is just the same with shal low frames. They must be cut down level \\Hth the wood, and when emp tied' packed in a crate and covered, so that the dust cannot ente;\
A "SPYS" DANGERS. IN THE ARTISTIC LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 February 1910
A "SPVS" DANGERS. IN THE ARTISTIC LINE. Everybody Is familiar with the clever cartoons of Mr Leslie Ward which, over the pseudonym of "Spy," appear in "Vanity Fair." In an interview in "Great Thoughts," Mr Ward tells how sometimes he has been very hard put to it to get hold of his subjects:— "There was (he says) the late Canon Liddon, for instance. I didn't know how I should manage him until some one told me that he walked every day at a certain hour up and down the Broad Walk. At last the hour struck, and Canon Liddon appeared. I followed him up and down a long time making little dots and scratches upon a piece o£ paper, never dreaming for a single second that he had ever noticed my pre sence. Suddenly he turned right round upon me, smiled very pleasantly, and, raising his hat, he disappeared." "But I had got him," added Mr Ward, "and I heard afterwards he was very much pleased and amused -with my por ♦"alt of him." CARDINAL NEWMAN AND PRO FESSOR JOWETT. Cardinal Newman, again, was...
THE BEEKEEPER [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 February 1910
THE BEEKEEPER Tho persistent flowering of the. red box trees that abound- in the Beech worth district is attracting the at tention of bee-keepers who find that food for bees is scarce. Messrs Brew« and Stevens made selections of new sites on Canny's Creek, between Beechworth and Chiltern; about two months ugo, and placed about eighty hives of bees there from Beechworth. The success attending the. innovation has become- widely known, with the result that five hundred hives from bven transferred from Ca-stlcmaine to' the Chiltern district. Sites have also been selected in the Barwidgeo Val ley. It is anticipated that the re moval of bees from one district to| another will become ■general.-' In Great'iBritain it is a regular practico1 to remove bees to the heather, or to localities in which a good honey flow! can be obtained from clover.;
THE TALENT FOR LOVE. A LESSON FROM UNHAPPT MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 February 1910
THE TALENT FOB LOVE. LESSON FROM UNHAPPT MARRIAGES. There are men and women who are naturally celibates, just as surely as there are individuals who are born poets, or musicians, or inventors, and when they marry they commit a crime. They lack the genius for matrimony. They are miserable themselves in ths wedded estate, and they make the unfor tunate^ person to whom they are united doubly and trebly wretched. It is because people who have no ap titude for matrimony marry that wo have so much domestic infelicity. It Is precisely the same condition of affairs as It would be it a. woman with a voico like a frog should attempt to sing in grand opera, or a man with no talent for drawing should set up as an artist. Nobody would expect them to do any thing- else but fail, but a woman who hates housekeeping and a man who is bored by quiet home lite will recklessly marry and be amazed because happiness does not follow. In reality the whole secret of how to be happy though married lies in ada...
THE VINEYARD. VINUOTTS FERMENTATION. HOW TO REGULATE THE TEMPERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 February 1910
THE VINEYARD. VINUOTTS FERMENTATION. HOW TO REGULATE THE TEM PERATURE. The following useful information in ) the various methods o£ controlling the ' temperature of the fermentation of -wines is kindly supplied by Mr J. W. \Bear, secretary of the Victorian Viticul tural Society:— / . ; The greater the volume of the ferment ing mass, the higher will be the relative degree o£ temperature it attains, and vice versa. In a very cold climate large vats are needed to keep up, or main tain, the temperature; in a warm'clim ate, small vatg- are required to keep it down. The advantages, in producing a better quality of wine,'obtainable by this practice, have been demonstrated over and over again during the past thirty -years, and are well known to most Vic torian vignerons, who, however, in their anxiety to make 10,000 gallons of wins, when they have only the accommodation and appurtenances needed to make 5000 gallons properly; neglect to profit by the example or a certain, and unfortunately '...
