Our Member. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 13 July 1900
Our Member. The following letter from Mr. Thos. Waddell, M.L.A. to the secretary of the Railway League will be read with interest : — ' Dear Sir.— Yours of the 7th to hand. I could not get Mr. O'Sullivan to start for Canowindra' until the second week in September next. He said he couid not possibly come sooner. I wrote you to this effect about ten days ago : my letter must hnve prone astray if you did not get it. Tlie Minister seems disin clined to introduce the proposal for a railway to Parliament, till late in the Ses sion, if at all ; so I fear we will have to wait till we get him to Canowindra. We can then go into the mntter of estimates, fc c. Yours, etc., X. Waddell. ^ j
The Fates and Prince Conrad. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 13 July 1900
Fates and Prince Conrad. By Gilbert Dayle. ' That will be alright, my dear Lech- ? mere,' came in the Prince's voice. * 1 1 promise that you. shall reeeive the nomin ation.' Haldmein looked again at the Baron. Without^ a moment's hesitation Von Keichstein stepped forward and bent over the secretary's ear. j * You. have stumbled on a secret,' he ? whispered confidentially, ' it was not in tended to be made public yet.' ' A look of wonder crossed Haldmein' s j face. ' .aiy resignation, continued the Baron, * advancing years, my dear Haldmein! Nobody but the Prince, Lechmere, and j myself know anything about it. We i 'Can rely upon you to keep the matter private.' The door opened wide, and a tall mili tary-looking man came quickly into thei room. He caught sight of the Baron, j and bowed deeply to him. An observer i anight have said that it was a trifle too ' deep, that there was a touch of the iron ical in it. The Baron returned the salute. ' A line morning my dear Leclimere,' lie sai...
Reasons Why Canowindra Should Have a Railway. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 13 July 1900
Reasons Why Canowindra Should .Have a Railway. In referring to railway matters in last week's issue of the ' Star,' we gave it to be understood that in the present issue statistical returns of the district's pro ductions should be forthcoming, not only as a guide to our Railway League and readers, but also as a guide to the Minister and Board of Works officials. Rather than fail in our promise, and : disappoint those mostly interested in these matters, we publish returns which I are unfortunately incomplete. Owing to the heavy floods and inclement weather I lately experienced, it has prevented us completing the returns for the whole area of country which would be chiefly bene fitted by railway communication. It has also unavoidably confined us to the statis tics of the wheat yield only, and the num ber af acres held under freehold, rented, and Crown lands, the area under cultiva tion and the area under wheat for grain together with the total yield of wheat for each county and distri...

Petitions, At the monthly meeting of the Pro gress Association held on Tuesday night it was moved ar.d carried unanimously, that the Secretary be requested to draw up a petition— .-to be presented to the Minister for Works through the proper eha.n n el s— regarding the disgraceful ; state of our main street, and request that ' repairs be doue immediately, That this ; danger not Gnly effects the people of Canowindra, but the whole district generally need hardly bo pointed out, as i fill those having' business to transact in ! the town are annnoyed with this bog Hole, which is a grave danger to health.

On the Character of Flour from Mixed Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 13 July 1900
Ou tho Character of Flour from mixed Wheat. In this country, says a writer in u Baker's Record,' flour is usually made from mixed wheat, and it lias been sug gested, with some degree of plausibility, that this fact may cause it to be more difficult to work ; that, in fact, the flour from each particular kind of wheat in the mixture retains its distinctive charac ter, and that the nature being different, the yeast produces maturity in some quicker that in others, and that when the hardest have reached the mature state, the softest may be over-mature, or, indeed, sour. It is this idea which uiicuirij.es rue contention w xavui ui bakers using flour made only from one sort of wheat, I have said that this con tention is plausible, but if the matter is ; probed a little deeper, it will be seen that not much beyond plausibility can be urged in its favor. In dousrh, the sub stance of the flour principally attacked by the yeast is the sugar of the flour, and as this suarar is in every case a...

Correspondence. We do not /told ourselves responsible fo. views expressed by our correspondents f To the Editor .J THE FAMINE FUND. Sir, — I notice that a co-worker of this locality has, in your last issue, suggested that the schools of the district contribute to the Indian Famine Fund. It would have been better, however, not to have specified any school in particular, or form of subscription, but allowed each to follow what it considered the best course in the matter. There is no doubt that the sanction of the Depart ment would be necessary in any case. The idea is a good one on the whole, and worthy of attention. I am., etc', COUNTRY TEACHFR.

Correspondence, We do not hold ourselves responsible fo. views expressed by our correspondents (To the Editor,) LOGJSWOOD MAIL SERVICE. Sir, — In your report of the meeting held re the above fi slight error occurred irj your printing f- bi-weekly ' instead of ' tri- weekly and as such may be apt to lead the Oranbury people to think are only wanting a mail twice a week. Will you kindly permit ijj}e tq say that we are asking for a tri-weekljr mail to run from CanovriuthTi to Toq: gong on Mondays, Wednesdaj's, and Fridays, after arrival of Sydney mail, and to return from Toogong on the fol lowing days. Owing to the insufficient mailservice I could not have this corrected in last issun, as, though you publish on Fridays, yet it is the following Thursday before your papep comes to hand, so it is high time we had some alteration. Yours, etc., H. M. BROWN, Hon. Sec.
Letters from "Our Boys" at the Front. [Newspaper Article] — The Canowindra Star — 13 July 1900
Letters from ' Our Boys ' at the Front. The ' Sydney Bulletin ' says — ' it is satisfactory to learn that certain of the Australian ' boys at the front' are not fancy ghouls and murderers, after all — but just plain ordinary liars. A N.S.W. Army Med. Corps man, writing from Bloemfontein, said : — We read with dis gust numerous letters written by men here to their friends in New South Wales and other provinces and handed to news papers for publication. A great number of these are fabrications. In fact, Ananias and Bill Adams are back num bers. One corps has collected a lot of clipping, and I hear they are to be read on parade* One individual states that he placed a piece of biscuit in the mouth of a dead Boer. Thank God, I have no seen such sacrilege, although it has been my lot to move among the dead and wounded more than a great many, Our officers and men treat both Briton and Boer wounded alike. At Driefontein I was direoted to wounded Boers by British soldiers, who showed the gre...
