Just a Reminder [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 28 January 1911
Just a Reminder Lcsc you forgot, to support local indus try, by always asking your grocer for onr soap. Don't be put oil' with high pricey city lines. Fancy paying ten shillings periffe case more for soap that only passes the souic standard as the local article by' law ? Was anything so absurd ever heard of. You would not do it for other liues then why for soap?*

TRIED IT ON THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 28 January 1911
TRIED IT ON THE HORSE. "When driving from Tomwortli to Bowling Alley Point, o: e of my horses took bad with gripes and got down kick ing and struggling," says Mr. Pain Pyrke of Bowling Alley i'oint, N.8.W. '-Those who passed me considered the horee would die. As I always carry Chamber lain's Colic, &lt;Cliolera and Diarrhoea Rem edy for my own use in case of emergency, I put a whole bottle of it in half a pint of wa'er and gave it to the horse. In less than a quarter of au hour he was up and started to tee J. It is Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy that I have to thank for siiving me a good horse."
LUCERNE FEEDING VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 28 January 1911
T/UCEKNE FJ5EDIXG VAIJTJE. The vnlue of lucerne as a stock food has been the subject of a number of recent experiments. Some tests at the New Jersey station showed that when bran and brewers' grains could bo bought at £3/10/ per ton (20001b.) lucerne hay was worth as a substitute £2/6/6 per ton. In another experiment. In which lucerne meal was compared with purchased concentrated foods, it was found that, in comparison With wheat bran, distillers' grains ami cot tonseed meal lucerne meal was worth just over £3 a ton. Had the compari son been simply between wheat, bran, and lucerne meal, the result would have been a higher value for the latter food. A further point brought out was that while,a pound of'protein In lucerne was probably not equal to a pound of pro tein in the grain used, the lucerne fur nished it much ?more cheaply, and might therefore be largely substituted for the grains in ratloi.s. An experiment at the Pennsylvania station indicated that as a food for dairy stock lu...

UNROLLING FENCING WIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 28 January 1911
UXROUJIXG FENCING WIRE. Several methods of unrolling fencing wire have been published, but pro , bably the old plan of the jinny Is as . popular as ever with those familiar with its use. To construct a jinny, take two pieces of sawn timber, 4 by 2 and about 30in. long. Cut a piece 4in. wide, and lln. deep out of each, and place the..two together in the form of a cross.

BEEKEEPER. FOUR BROOD DISEASE. SYMPTOMS AND REMEDIES. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 28 January 1911
- VOVh BKOOO DISEASE. SYMPTOMS AND REMEDIES | Iii the December issue of the "Journal ot Agriculture" the President of the Victorian Apiarists' Association (Mr R. Beuhine) dealt with foul brood disease. He wrote: ! "In .view of the heavy losses result ing from foul brood, when once it has obtained a good start in an apiary, ami the great amount of labor Involved in its eradication, it is desirable tihat every owner of bees should be able to recog ? nise this dease when it appears in one or more of his hives. He will then be able to deal with It before it has made any great headway. Unfortunately, there are still some bee-keepers who do not discover the presence of this disease amongst their bees till the small num ber of bees in several of the hives indi cates that there is somotthing wrong. 'When hives have been affected suffi ciently long to show marked decline in the number of bees, the disease is likely to spread rapiflly; the remaining bees . are usually inactive and do not defe...
CHAPTER XXIV. THE BATTLE OF WOOLER. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 28 January 1911
CHAPTER XXIV. THE BATTLE OF WOOLfcR. Only half Lord Kitchonor'B troops were I regulars ; as for the balance it was large ly composed of half-drilled Territorials f and volunteers from various of the north ern counties and Scotland, and the senior cadets. As against this heterogeneous army was the absolutely homogeneous army of Germans-^overy man a trained, a higlily-trained soldier; every man of them a German egotist; evory man of them a fighting machine of the highest type. When, on tho fateful morrow, tlio sun had scarcely risen over the waters of the North Sea, tho'German host was in mo tion, and the English Marshal knew what was meant. It was not to bo.a question any longer of field-guns and accuracy of fire, but a hot and determined storming of his position; and close fighting to the point of annihilation. Without swagger, silently as those king's men at Flodden 400 years before had come to their slaughter, so marched the Germans upon the British. As they approached, the solid ...

j Woodstock Races, j The annual meeting o£ the above j took place on Thursday under deeidedly' inauspicious weather con ditions, a high wind blowing all day > and causing the dust to be decidedly annoying. A slight shower fell in the afternoon, but there was scarcely sufficient to even lay the dust. The. attendance was about up to the usual standard, but the fields were very poor and the racing only moderate.' Mr. Street, as' starter, was not at his best, still it must be admitted he had I a very hard task on several occasions, a couple of the horses engaged being anything but tractable at the bariior. We noticed that the contemplated im provements had not been carried out, which is decidedly" regrettable, as the present grandstand accommoda tion is altogether inadequate and out of date. Mr. J. W.
