38. IMPROVING THE DAIRY HERDS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
No. 38. IMPROVING THE DAIRY HERDS. Ever since dairying has become prominent, as an economic factor in rural industry, dairymen have often been perplexed at the extraordinary disparity in the milk and butter yield ing powers between individual cows. Although the animals may be. pre sumably of the same type or breed, they seemed to possess some mysteri ous characteristic which influenced their productive capacity in a higher or lower degree, as (he case may be. To Unci up the milking qualities of a dairy herd, testing each cow's daily yield of milk by weighing it, and for the butter fat it contained, has been resorted to with beneficial results. Those cows not showing a reasonable yield over a period wore rejected from the herd. By these means—with pure bred bulls of known dairy quality as a base—herds have been improved to a very appreciable extent. There is, however, some hidden reason why one cow is often so eminently superior to another of the same breed, although both treated exa...

The Forbes Times. SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1912. Notes of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
The Forbes Times. SATURDAY, JANUARY 2 7, Notes of the Week. The donnit.2 pronouncement by six of the leading cricketers that they are not prepared to go to Eng land with, the next team i£ tlie Board of Control insists on the ap pointment of a manager, who is to take the place of the official sekited for previous tours by the cricketers themselves brings to a crisis tthe dispute between players ar:d the administrators of the game that has been in the air ever since it was tiecidcd that a team should leave Australia this summer. But after all tlie trouble is very much after the nature of that met by people who attempt, meta phorically speaking, to cross streams before they reach them. AVoud it not have been far bettor to wait until the Board of Control had selected their representative, and then to see if the gentleman to whom the honor and the pleasure of the appointment was given had been unacceptable to the players ? The unfortunate part of the dispute is that the strentgh and nerv...
In and Around Sydney. Written Specially for Country Readers. NOT AN ARM-CHAIR JOB. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
In and Around Sydney. ulteii Specially for Country Headers. (By T.C.B.) NOT AN ARM-CHAIR JOB. The journal published in connec tion.witli the Australian Nurses' As sociation contained in a recent is sue an article in which it was maintained that nursing' as a pro fession is a failure to all except ing matrons of largo hospitals, or owners of such establishments. Sub stantially the same might be said of any other profession or calling; the world's failures arc not asso ciated with one class of -work more than with another. Success is reached only at the top, and at (lie top there aro always only the few The article in question was written by a nurse who had not yet got to the top. The reply of a nurse who had reached the coveted goal in the nursing profession was that "if some of those who think that the position of matron is such a pleas ant one were to experience what I have gone through they would be • more inclined to the belief that a matron's lot is not a happy one" This experie...
THE INCOME TAXES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
THE INCOME TAXES. The air is charged with inquir ies regarding the problem of how to fill in. the iucorue tax papers. All the publicity possible in the way of explanations is being given by the Taxation Department, with the aid of the press. In the case of dividends derived from companies, whether registered in Now South Wales, or out of it, ancl in a few other instances, directions as to how to fill in the papers will in many cases be a necessity. But for the great majority of people the matter is simple enough if a few leading directions are observed. One fact that covers nearly the whole ground is that it is incumbent upon everybody in receipt of an income to furnish a return indicating what it is, the only exception being in the case of persous whose sole iu como is derived from salary which does not exceed £iJG0 per annum. A1 persons carrying on any business, including grazing or farming, trade or profession, on their own account, are required to furnish income re turns, All em...
CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
CRICKET. City newspapers in at least three States have, since the third test, printed countless suggestions by tlieir own cricket "experts'" and by outside correspondents as to the beist Australian team for the fourth test, commencing in Mel bourne on Friday, February ,0. But it is only stating the bare truth to say that newspapers which take this letter were the first to really hit the nail on the head—and para doxical though it sounds, in lett ing the head they did not raiss the point, us all writers elsewhere have done Yet it isn't a paradox, after all, for when you hit the nail on the head you drove the point home. It is a pretty stiff task to drive tbc point home in Sydney, a city as conservative as cricket it self. The point in connection with these tests, .as 1 pointed out last week, is this—Against a specially organised team of skilled defend ers, who were deliberately chosen to wear down the attack by care fully watching" the ball and keeping' it off the wicket (no more) un...

A Victim of Pessimism. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
A Victim of Pessimism. A sternly pessimistic utterance on the philosophy of living was that quoted by an America:] piano representative, Mr. George P. Bent, at a farewell gathering held iti England to Mr. George Rose, who lias just come to Sydney. The speech was in these terms:— " Did it ever occur to you that a man's life is full of trouble and temtpation ? He comes into the world without his consent, and goes out against his will, and the trip between is exceedingly rough. The rule of contraries Is one of the features of this trip. When lie is Hi tie the bi^ f.irl.s kiss him ; when he is bis; the little girls liiss ; him. If he is poor he is :i bud manager; if he is rich he is dishonest. I f he needs credit he can't ;^et it ; if he is prosperous everyone wants to do him a favor. I ell • a man yon like him, and he's suspicious ; tell him you don't like him and he's soie^ | It he is in politics it is for ural't, and if he | out of politics he's a bad citizen If lie doesn't give to c...
"NICHOLSON'S" CHRISTMAS MAGAZINE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
NICHOLSON'S" CHRISTMAS MAGAZINE. Never before have Nicholson and Co., Limited, put forward such a capital budget of music as that to be found inside the handsome cover (which, it may bo noted, is distinctly Australian in its design) of their Christmas Maga zine. "Melodie I)'Amour," by fiugelmann, would alone ensure, ilie success and ar tistic distinction of this publication. It is a lovely tiling! Arditi's "11 Hacio" is an old and warm favourite. "A Dream Melody," "l!aiiulrop I're lude," and the Mendelssohn-Liszt "On Wings of Song" are a trio that give special value to the magazine; while "Les Deux Alfiuetles" (The Two Larks), Jjendel's "Sunday Morning," 1' iisen's "The Mill," and "Sehnsueht" (Longing) complete a splendid collec tion of piano music. Good paper and clear printing are pleasing features of the publication, which is selling rapidly at tl'.o moderate price of Is., including postage.
