TURNING OVER A NEW LEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
The above superscription is the advice-frecmenUy offered to those persons who.dWroV^uite come up to the standard required of theiXL The beginning of another year^fc ^MWiing opportunity"^ consider whether-it is" not advisable for many of -.us to turn ■ over a hew leaf, to see:whether.; weJ can improve our methods of working, to inquire if we are obtaining the full fruits of our labors, or are we wasting our time and resources, probably without being aware of the fact. A Minister of the Crown said the other day that brains would win in the future, and he was quite right; it is only by diligent, and intelligent application to our'work that we shall ever hope to succeed. People frequently do not value their labor sufficiently; we know dairy farmers who plod along with an unreliable make of cream separator. Let the owners turn over a new. leaf, and buy a modern "Alfa-Laval" machine. We know of many dairy farmers who, in the flush season, are milking nearly all day; let those farmers turn...
JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
JOTTINGS. The wine license of David Dur\x=req-\ ford, of Daroobalgie, was renewed by the licensing bench on Tuesday. 0.0. (Old Orkney Scotch whisky). Of unexcelled quality. A peerless wnisky.* Before the commencement of business at the Municipal Council's ordinary meeting on Tuesday evening, the Mayor extended to Alderman J. J. Patterson, newly-elected, a welcome to the Council table. The meeting of the Town Council on Tuesday was brought to a close by the absence of a quorum, owing to A-ldernian Lee retiring on hearing that his daughter had fallen from a horse. Happily, we are glad to learn later, she was not seriously injured. The retirement of Alderman Lee from the Council meeting on Tuesday night left no quorum, and so the monthly meeting of the trustees of the Town Common was postponed for a fortnight. 0.0. (Old; Orkney Scotch Whisky), especially distilled' for the Aus-' tralian climate.* Says the Orange.'"Leader":—"Pro\x=req-\ vidence tried to be kind to Messrs Shaw Strickland...

WHO SAID "WOWSER?" [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
WHO SAID "WOWSER?" The old, old query of "What is a wowser" still hits us in the face when we would like to be at peace. "What is a bigot, dad?" said the little boy. "A bigot, my boy," replied pater familias, "is a person who holds contrary views to mine, and refuses to alter them!" There you have the whole thing in a nutshell. A "wow\x=req-\ ser" is the fellow who wants to shut down on something you want to keep going. The word saves such a lot of talking, too. If your friend is opposed to prize-fighting, glare, at him, call him "wowser," and pass on. If he is an anti-hotel man, a hater of the seductive cigarette, an enemy of the racecourse, scorch him with "wowser " and get away to company more congenial to yourself. Of course, it is ail offensive word, and meant to be offensive, and yet, more or less, we must all be "wow\x=req-\ sers" to some extent—it is only a matter of degree. One sage has said that every man is mad, more or less. Another will have it that with his first glass...

THE INVENTOR AND THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
THE INVENTOR AND THE LAW. This silly old commercial system of ours, which sets everybody chasing after the almighty dollar, and impels men to commit deeds under the name of business, which, though legally defensible, are morally wrong, is responsible also for unduly delaying the adaptation for practical purposes of new inventions. Every inventor justly wishes to make money out of his inventions, and the patent laws are ostensibly intended to enable him to attain his wish, and thus to reward him for his genius. But the hawks are on the watch, and despite the safeguards of the patent laws, the deserving inventor is too often robbed of the fruits of his brain by the imitator, or the man who can find a defect in his patent rights. Then litigation follows, and injunctions are granted by the Courts, restraining either patentee or hawk, or Doth, from putting the invention to practical use until Gent One has bled one or the other, or both of the litigants. When the cyanide process of recove...
VISIT OF THE BIRDMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
VISIT OF THE BIRDMAN. The Australian aviator, Mr W. S. Hart, whose demonstrations around Sydney have stamped him as one of the world's skilful airmen, proposes to visit the country towns of the State, and has issued a circular letter to Forbes, amongst other municipalities, asking for co-operation. It if.' clear that this form of entertainment is at a great disadvantage in the matter of charging for admission/'because, as yet, no means have been devised for making a corner in. sijace, and it is equally clear that-'Mr Hart, or rather the syndicate into which he has been formed, .is not a philanthropic insti\x=req-\ tution,/but a business proposition, so that some means will have to be .demised, if we wish to witness a flight in Forbes, to raise the wind, so that Hart, Ltd.; or whatever the name of. the .firm is, may be paid for its venture, and guaranteed against accident. The Forbes Council is marking time, by writing to ascertain the amount of the guarantee. Hart, Ltd.. proposes to...
CURRENT TOPICS. LEAP YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
LEAP YEAR. The girls should have the time of their lives during 1912, and if they don't, it is their own fault. Leap year only comes every four years, and —well, four years is a long time to wait between the chances. The women of this country have also a solemn duty to perform, and let us hope they will show the proper Spartan spirit in not shirking it. It is their duty to go into the by-ways and hiding places, and drag forth the recalcitrant bachelor, who is dodging and skulking behind every nedge of the matrimonial thoroughfare. These men should be wheeling prams and manufacturing kites for lusty toddlers. Are they doing it?' No, a thousand times no, shame on 'em! Get in, girls, and drag them out. Don't mind if they make a noise about it—their bark is much worse than their bite. Besides, what's .a matter of liking and disliking when a solemn duty is to be done! Down with their miserable plea that the "screw" won't stand two tugging at it. Show by your deeds that you are ready to c...
DAIRYING. INTENSIVE DAIRY FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
DAIRYING. " INTENSIVE DAIRY FARMING. A very interesting experiment' was made recently at the Illinois Agricultural Experiment Station, showing a marked variation in the profits from four different systems of .dairy farming. The final test or. prontable dairy farming is that which shows the greatest amount of milk and butter\x=req-\ fat^, produced per acre from feed raised on the farm. The result depends not only on efficient cows, But also on raising crops that contain a maximum amount of digestible nutrients, especially protein, which is so essential for dairy cows. In the four systems of dairy farming arranged for the experiment, the cropping was as follows:— System No. 1.—Maize, oats, maize. ... oats, timothy, pasture, pasture, pasture. System No. 2.—Maize, maize, maize, oats, clover, clover and timothy, pasture, pasture. System No.. 3.—Maize, maize, maize, oats, clover, lucerne, pasture, pasture. System No. 4.-—Maize, maize, maize, maize, maize, lucerne, lucerne, lucerne. ■When ...
AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL NOTES. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND AGRICULTURE. GRASSES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
Agricultural & pastoral notes. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND (Issued by the Department of Agri\x=req-\ ■ culture). AGRICULTURE. 'GRASSES. At the Glen Innes State, Experimental Farm some good work has been done in demonstrating how exotic grasses may be introduced and maintained successfully as pasture. Perennial red clover, in comparatively large areas, has been established; and in this there is an evidence of quite a source of collateral wealth to the man who maps out a course of mixed farming on sound economic lines. Students in farm economy, and the practical and experienced tiller of the soil, are persistent in an advocacy of a scheme of crop rotation, to sustain the fertility of the soil. Nature in the first place provided in most of our arable lands a certain amount of fertility through the decomposition of vegetable matter. This commingling with the plant-constituents derived from the weathering of the rocks comprising the primeval condition of the earth's surface, gives us...
FARRER RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
FARRER RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP The good, work in improving the yielding power and milling value of wheat, instigated by the late William Farrer, is to be memorialised by the founding of a "Farrer Research Scholarship." The money subscribed by the public to the Farrer Memorial Fund amounted to £1030. This money has been vested in five trustees;— Messrs F. B. Guthrie, G. W. Walker, Henry Lord, the Under-Secretary for Agriculture, and the Principal of the Hawkesbury Agricultural ollege. The trustees are instructed to apply the interest accruing from the fund towards establishing a scholarship, the specific object being improvement in wheat culture, the term being applicable in the widest sense, including the improvement of the plant or grain for a specific purpose; improvement in the treatment of soil or crops, and investigation calculated to advance our knowledge of the nature of the grain or its products, including flour and bread. SCOPE OF THE INVESTIGATIONS. The trustees have propound...
HOW INCREASED NUTRIENTS IN FEED INCREASED MILKING RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
HOW INCREASED NUTRIENTS IN ' FEED INCREASED MILKING RESULTS. The experiments of the Agricultural Experiment Station just cited— and there is no reason to doubt their accuracy, they being directed by the State authority—show liow the milk\x=req-\ yielding power of cows may be improved by certain methods of feeding. The cows in the case under review were practically of equal milking capacity. The crops fed to the cows from System No. 4, comprising maize and lucerne, produced 80,2371b of "digestible protein, or over three times that from those of 'No. 1 System, embracing maize, oats, timoth, and pasture—the kind of pasture not being stated. : We here have further evidence of the great value of lucerne when fed to dairy cows, with maize as a balanced ration. There were three times the quantity of. digestible nutrients in the lucerne-maize feeds compared with, the other, materials fed to the cows; and it. is remarkable that the quantity of milk increased ration corresponding almost exact...

The Forbes Advocate, FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 1912. FORBES AND HYGIENE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
®jje Jforite Jp&ocate, FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 1912. FORBES AND HYGIENE. So far as we have been able to learn from inquiry and observation, the authorities are doing their best to keep Forbes a healthy community. We say this, having in mind that the town has not been without its share o£ epidemical sickness during the year just closed. It is our experience in these matters, however, that each community has a tendency to exaggerate its own surroundings. A case or two of typhoid, for instance, often causes panic-minded people to jump to the conclusion that the town they are living in is fever-infested, whereas, if they looked around, they would find, perhaps, that they were not one whit worse off than • their neighbours. The truth is that country towns, by their methods of sani tation—or, rather, lack of sanita\x=req-\ tion—are more or less open to the depredations of the dreaded typhoid scourge. The conditions are very often favorable for the typhoid germ, and we regret to say tha...
