THE JUMPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 28 October 1905
THE JUMPING. As^usual in; most country shows the jumping was the most popular item on the ground, and from the start there was an attentive crowd around the ring. The jumping was good, although several horses were outclassed from the start. There were 12 entries in the Maiden Hun ters, T. Graham's Bell securing the . blue ticket, J. Mclnnes' The Bud coming second. The bay. mare, was a very olean and quiet jumper, and the win was a popular one. . In the heavy-weightB there were also heavy entries, but they were soon weeded out, J. Williams securing first with Diamond Reign, and J. O'Meara second. In the pony jumpers J. Williams was- also successful with Esther, W. 0. Reid coming second. The high jump created a keen contest, the battle at the finish being between J.O'Meara's Federal and J. William's Diamond Reign. At 6ft. 9in. the brown mare failed, but Diamond Reign managed to negotiate this creditable height and secured first honors. Second money was divided.
THE HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 28 October 1905
THE HORSES. One of the most noticeable animals on the ground was a dark chestnut stallion, Federator, a fine, upstanding horse which it would be bard to fault. - This animal secured first prize for stallions, 3 years and up wards, calculated to get weight earners, Federator should certainly take a high place in the show ring, if - only on account of bis breeding. A son of Ostley, his full brother Emu lation, and sister Lighfcfoot both hold the championship of Australia. Fe derator, who belongs to Mr. R. M. Tully, Wangaratta, is 5 years old, and will be remembered as a winner at Corowa last year. Another no ticeable horse was Marland Derby, an imported English hackney stallion. ? This horse was specially exhibited by the owners, Messre. Sloano and Stewart, and holds an unbeaten record. Marland Derby isabeautifully set, . well-boned; bay' horse, with black points, standing about Hi hands. The champion prize for draughts was secured by Mr. Jno. McOorty's stallion, Britisher. A 5-year o...
SCIENCE EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 28 October 1905
SCIENCE EXHIBITION. In one sense probably the most interesting collection on the whole ground was a demonstration, under the auspices of the Department of Education, of the scientific teaching now given in the useful arts. It was a most striking example of the great strides made in education, and the useful work that is being quietly instilled into the rising generation in a manner calculated to bear fruit in the future to the great benefit of botli the individual and the State. Some time ago Mr. W. J. Bishop, of the Education Department, was sent up from Melbourne to organise science classes in the North Eastern district, and that gentleman was responsible for the. interesting exhibition on Wednesday. He was assisted in his demonstration by the following schoolmasters, Messrs. T. A. Watch- orn, Norong Central, W. C. Greggory, Norong, M.T.Brennan, Boutherambo and — Langell, of Wodonga. Dur- &nbsp; ing the afternoon Mr. Bishop gave an interesting address upon the work being d...
Sydney Woman's Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 28 October 1905
Sydney Woman's Letter. [Br Matba.] ? Just now Sydney is suffering from' an epidemic of bazaars and fan-fairs.: These entertainments are all beingj held to raise charity funds, and they' are occasions on which Mrs. Lesser Social Light gets an opportunity of looming larnely, as she does the honours and performs the opening ceremony. Bazaars are very much patronised by the sex feminine. Ex perience has made 'mere men' shun these functions, for once past the doorkeeper he is the lawful prey of the feminine pirate within the gate. Usually the prices put upon goods at the different stalls are quite sufficient to scare you off ever at tending again, for you put in an afternoon or evening in a perfumed, stuffy atmosphere, and are shoved hither and thither, and finally man age to make a purchase for three times as much money as you could buy it in one of the city establish ments. But it is for sweet Charity's sake, so you follow your leader and do your duty, and gaze on the su burban grandda...
District News. HENTY, LOCKHART, YAMMA AND CLEAR HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 1 November 1905
District News. (Prom our own Correspondents.) HENTY, LOCKHAET, YAMMA AND CLEAR HILLS. (By Knockabout.) Along the track from Corowa to Henty tbe crops aro very good, and I notice tbe rabbits are being kept down a lot better than was tbe case on my last trip through these parts. There are some fine crops about Henty, and from there to Lockbart they are generally all good. There is a particularly good show of wheat about Napier. Between Corowa and Daysdale the want of rain was ap parent, and tho change in the weather will be of immense benefit. About Boree Creek the crops are fair to good, but around Yamma, Yanko South, and Bundure the wheat crops wanted rain. AH over tbe district the grass is good, but I noticed that locusts are appearing above ground about tbe Billabong. Shearing should have been com pleted at Brookong last week. Gener ally the rabbits are being dealt with excepting.' on some Improvement Leases which require immediate at tention. For appearance the best headed wheat ...

PRICES OF NEW WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 1 November 1905
PRICES OF NEW WHEAT. . Sufficient business has already transpired in Australian ' futures' to place values beyond the realm of pure conjecture. There appears to be a difference of 2a per bushel in the quotes for the next wheat harvest, the higher rate being for the very earliest gar nerings. The quote of 3s 4d per bnshd (Sydney) is for -November and early Docember delivery of new crop. : ?? So far as bull: deliveries are concerned, the future value of new wheat is at present estimated at about 32s per quarter, or equivalent to 4e per bushel, less 7Jd freight, and 2}d loading, and other charges. 'This practically means that, allowing -for London parities, 3s 2d per bushel (Sydney) may be the top price (on current London value) when the next Australian harvest deliveries become general — say at the close of Do cember, and throughout January and Feb ruary. The Sydney and N.6.W. country millers are being guided by the probable trend of English, Mediterranean, South Africa, and Japanese ...

THE COMING SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 1 November 1905
THE COMING SEASON. Future prospects, locally, are very gratifying, and the universal pleas ure' that is expressed at the con tinuance of cool weather, with intermittent spells of rain, testify how thoroughly all sections of the community recognise the value of a good season. Old residents state that the prospects have not been equalled for the last 30 years. Of course, the unexpected may always happen, and there are possible dangers ahead. A sudden inrush of hot, blistering weather would probably mean the appearance of rust, with consequent damage. Against such a misfortune little can be done, but Hope for the best. The drastic lesson of last season's holocaust is too deeply imprinted on the memories of district resi dents to allow any neglect of pre cautions against bush fires. It would be well nevertheless, for local bodies to co-operate in taking some steps to guard against this ever-present destructive danger. In this connection it would be fit ting and proper for the Borough Co...

..Local and General. He. E. T. 'Ball, il!L.A.— The Mem ber for -Corowa was in the town on Satur 'day, and spent the day interviewing his electors, returning in the evening to Syd ney. Mr. Ball had an interview vrith the Secretary of the Hospital, and tome of the Committee vrith reference to the subsidy. He obtained particulars as to the distance of the infectious ward from the main hospital. and is in hopes ol getting the matter fixed up almost at once. During his presence, Mr* Ball was also consulted about the Oaklands to Hopefield railway. He advised the Secretary of the League (Mr. Falconer Fraser), that an estimate of the rival railway Iine6 had been put in by the Engineer. The Oaklands to Hopefield line, at a rough es timate was enormously below thflj other. Mr. Ball very rightly takes up the attitude that he should not favor either line, ' but should see that the merits of- each - ue'duly brought forward. The probability^ that a survey will be taken; of' the Oaklands Hopefield...

THE STRIKE IN KHARKOFF. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 1 November 1905
THE STRIKE IN KHARKOFF. The strikers in Kbarkoff have re sumed work owing to the Govern ment withdrawing the troops and allowing them to peacefully bury their dead.
