Skirmish in Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 8 November 1905
Skirmish in Parliament. A reference by Mr. Wilson (Vic), in the House of Representatives, to an article on the Home Rule debate, which appeared in a Sydney sectarian paper, was responsible for an ex change of strong language between two other members and himself. Mr. Wilson said the article, in whioh reference was made to the ' atuemic Wilson,' and the ' dirty tricks ' of the opponents of Home Rule, who were described as ' cow ards,' was apparently written by Mr. Higgins or Mr. Mahon, as it con tained the gist of a conversation that took place between himself and them, 'it shows,' declared Mr. Wilson, that there is some underground sewer from this Houee to certain centres in Sydney.*' Mi-. Higgins warmly denied all knowledge of the article, but declared that it contained accurate informa tion. Mr. Mahon also denied writ ing the article, but was prepared to accept the responsibility for every Rk&tem&nl; /»rtn/*fil*nini? Mf. Wilnnn. Mr. Mahon further reminded Mr. Wilso...

P. A. and H. Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 8 November 1905
P. A. and H. Notes. The hot weather that set in at the beginning of the week will cause some anxiety to wheat-growers. While the heat must be exnected. the full growth of the crops render it desirable for the weather to change gradually to prevent any danger of rust. Some of the fanners are also complaining that the soil is getting a hard, baked surface. A few light showers and mild nights would be appreciated. The wool carried ou tbe New South Wales railways since the open ing of this season shows an increase of 85,000 bales, compared with last year. A orossbred ewe, -belonging to Mr. L. Robertson, of Newlands, Ashbur ton (N.Z.), gave birth to six lambs, all fully developed, and of normal size. There iz no doubt .that the lambs all belong to the one ewe, Mr. T. H. Calaby, of Mount Bar ker, (S.A.), has still got a sample of the famous wheat grown on his mother's farm over 30 years ago; The wheat was first named ' Calaby 's Glory,' but afterwards became known throughout Australia as ...
Parachute Accident. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 8 November 1905
Parachute Accident. A shocking accident occurred at Columbia, the capital of South Caro lina, in connection with a parachute descent from a balloon. The victim was Mrs. Broadwick, a well-known performer of the risky feat. With her husband, she ascended in the balloon, the practice being for the husband to cut the rope and allow bis wife to descend with the para chute. When the balloon had at tained a height of about 250ft., Mrs. Broadwick signalled to her husband to release her. Owing to some ter rible mistake, however, she was clinging, not to the rope to, which the parachute Was attached,- f but to another rope hanging from the car. This was the .ronej the .. husband severed. ' ' ? ! Thousands of - spectators were watching the ascent, 'and they . were horrified when they 'saw Mrs. Broad wick commence a sheer descent to earth with nothing to restrain her. The people rushed to the spot at which she fell, only to find that the daring performer had been killed instantaneously.
Adulteration of Fertilisers. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 8 November 1905
Adulteration of Fertilisers. Farmers evidently have implicit and child-like confidence in the agents from whom they purchase their ma nures, for, according to a report of tbe Director of Agriculture, not one nerson has taken advantage of the protection from possible fraud af forded them by tho provisions of the Manures Adulteration Act passed last year. This indifference to their own welfare is not easy to account for. Every little detail in farm manage ment; which means the saving of perhaps only a few pounds in the year's workings, should receive stu dious attention, for it is only by economy in every direction that profitB can be showu. In all proba bility the majority of agents supply their customers with fertilisers of guaranteed strength ; but seeing this is a matter in which the unscrupu lous seller could easily take advantage of tbe buyer's ignorance, for it is safe to say that not one man in one hun dred who purchases manures could make a chemical analysis of them for himse...
