OBITUARY. WELL-KNOWN PASTORALIST PASSES. MR. W. J. BARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 7 February 1925
OBITUARY. &nbsp; WELL-KNOWN PASTORALIST &nbsp; &nbsp; PASSES. &nbsp; &nbsp; MR. W. J.

The deceased had a very large cir- cle of friends, all of whom admired him for the sterling qualities which ho possessed.

On the Land. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 7 February 1925
On the Land. He was a lanky country youth, &nbsp; Known as "That cove of "Bess's"' For he her sweetheart was, in truth, And paid her his addresses. He dined at her place once a week (That way the thing commences) And there for hours he'd sit and speak About the crops and fences. In vain Bess tried to lead his feet In pathways more romantic; He'd talk about the blight in wheat And nearly drove her frantic; He never thought to squeeze her hand Like men of courting habits. But spoke about the tax on land And how to poison rabbits. Bess thought the matter out alone, With this determination: "A bush-bred girl should hold her own At rural conversation." Next time he came she let him talk Until her dad forsook him, Then "Come," said she, "well take a walk," And river-ward she took him. &nbsp; "Since you're so fond of talking shop I'll show you my selection!" Upon the brink she made him stop And view his own reflection. &nbsp; He grinned a grin that lined his face Wi...

WHERE THE TRACTOR SCORES. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 14 February 1925
WHERE THE TRACTOR SCORES. This season, has proved au eye opener to many farmers, who consider that the day o£ the liorse ia nearly done; that tractors are the best means of treating the large wheat areas. With horses, unless a farmer has spare teams, only short days can be worked, whilst with the tractor there is no stoppage or delay in getting the machines into the field. Time is a valuable factor to the farmer, for, when the crop is ready for stripping the quicker it is taken off the better, and the loss from storms and winds is not so great. Many Hay farmers this year hud practically no plant for their.wheat harvest, and have had to rely on the renting of other plant after that the owner had completed other work. The wind and rain' early in the month played havoc with some of the crops, and those who arc still harvesting are having ttaoir trying time harvesting tangled cropH. The tractor is also scoring over the horses in regard' to thistle-infested paddocks, into which the horse...
