Proposed Train Service. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 23 May 1913
Proposed Train- Service.' The iJerilderie " Herald " writes —"We hear that it is quite on the cards that when the Finley Tocumwal railway is completed there will be a through train from Sydney for the soutlrwest, so that passengers leaving Sydney for any station west of Junee right through to Tocumwal Will have no occasion to change carriages from when they leave the city lill they reach their destination. The Hay branch line, it is stated, will only run as far as Narande'ra meeting, the through train there. This means that the train would leave the,city in the evening and , be timed to reach Narandera at about 7.30 next morning- It would reach here about 11 a.m. and Tocurriwal between 1 and 2 p.m., in time to allow passengers to proceed by. the Victorian train for Melbourne the same afternoon.

s 'Unsigned Reoorts. THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL AND THE PRESS, . .. i\ . , '•&lt;: ■ - "On the day before the issue of the writs for the Federal elections; the "Argus " declined to print two statements from Mr W. M. Hughes, commenting upon a speech made by Mr Joseph Cook, because, as the newspaper pointed out, they were not signed with - . ?Mr Hughes' true name and ad-; —dress as is now required by the Federal Elections Act. Mr Hughes referred to the in cident (reports W. T. Ely, in the " Age ") remarking that the edi torial note reminding him of the law and printing for his benefit the particular section of the Elec toral Act which makes the feigning of articles obligatory was a really good joke. " But," said the At torney-General, "the newspaper must not think it has a monoply 1 in jocular matters of this kind.

EVERY FARM HAS CLIMATIC ZONES. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 23 May 1913
EVERY FARM. HAS CLIMATIC ZONES. "There are climatic zones of every farm that need to be studied and taken ' advantage of, just as slight pecullari- }: ties in planis and animals are studied, j and taken advantage o£ In breeding,"' says Eric R.-Miller, United States wea ther forcaster, at the University of j Wisconsin,, in an article in the "Jour- j nal of Geography." j "Different soils have the power to produce local differences in tempera ture," continues Mr. Miller. "ThiB is '•> largely due to the power to absorb \ heat and to the power to give out by ) radiation. A good absorber Is a good radiator, and a poor absorber is a j poor radiator. The temperature chan- ) ges in the soil are very much modi- ! fled by the state of the atmosphere / above them. Clouds, dust, and fog, intercept both incoming and outgoing i radiation so that the range of tem- ; ucrature of the soil cannot be so great. Clouds and fog act as a blanket, for , thoy reflect back, and radiate back ; the heat sent...

WHY BABIES CRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 23 May 1913
WHY BABIES CRY. When an infant has a fit of scream ing, it is often put down by some mothers as a sign of hunger, or a fit of temper, but it is more likely to foe colic or indigestion. Very few babies, up to the age of two years, escape an attack of colic. If a baby is reared' on scientific lines, with regard to the kind and quantity of food, it may es cape; but the majority of babies un fortunately are not brought up on these lines, hence the poor little things cry distressingly, because their food has not agreed with them. When n child is suffering from colic, he will go on screaming whatever a nurse or mother may do. If he is lying down, he will probably draw up his knees in an effort to lessen his pain; if the abdomen is felt gently with the palm of the hand, it will be, found to be hard, and there will be the appearance of irregular swellings. This is owing to the presence of gas in the larger bower, the pressure of which is 'caus ing the pain. The child's face will also show t...
A FALLACIOUS ARGUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 23 May 1913
A FALLACIOUS ARGUMENT. - There are some farmers who seem to care but little how lough, and ■ coarse the cattle they feed ,may be, provided they get them at a low price, and their argument is that cattle bought in at a low price are bound to get away from it. That may bo true, but how long are they about it? What do they coBt in food-stuffs, and : how much less per pound'do they rea lise when sold as compared with cat- ■ tie of breeding and quality.- It must be borne in mind that cattle that aro well bred and that have been well treated from their birth have had more than half the work done to them by their breeders, and when they pass into the feeders' hands to be fin ished off, they are a very short time about it, and, moreover, turn to the very best account every ounce of food given to them, and will thrive better on a given quantity that coarsely-bred animals will on double that quantity.. The difference, therefore, in feeding cattle of good breeding and those of a coarse, rough ...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 23 May 1913
LADIES' LETTER. [ By Cello. Pneumonia and all kinds o£ chest troubles will be fashionable this win ter i£ the present mode o£ dressing is to continue through the colder months. At a large and well-dressed gathering last week it was noticed that collars are still being worn al most as low as in the summer months; high collars are still conspicuous by their absence and the skirts to the very smartest costumes are being slit.at the side almost to the knee, re vealing, not a nice 'kilting of silk or satin,, but a silk stockinged leg. Evening gowns have the opening in the centre front in most instances, although som'e are having it at the side. The newest shades showing for this winter are brown in all tones, also fawn, yellow and orange—all are to be exceedingly fashionable. The col or schemes on the whole are. ratimr brilliant, which is a contrast to last season's craze for black and white.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 23 May 1913
PROM VARIOUS SOURCES. It'is one of fortune's tricks that a lady, who would not cross Melbourne's streets or Sydney's crowded thorough fares without the escort of a police man should venture Into the great un known in China, Tibet, and Siberia. •Mrs. Mary Gaunt years ago was al most helpless in any public place. She had suffered from an affection of the eyes, for which an operation had been performed which left her like a horse in blinkers, without any side sight. She is no better off to-day, but being a courageous woman she does not per mit her infirmity to circumscribe her activities, and so I learn that she has reached Pekin after a picturesque trans-Siberian trip. ,Slie is malting Her way to Sezclman, the province closest Tibet, and is journeying along the Hoangho, and thence by camel cart. She proposes to cross the Gobi Desert and strike the Siberian railwav somewhere west of Harbin. Her ex ploits will soon rival those of the in defatigable Miss Kingston, for the Australian, nov...

DETAILLE AS PORTRAIT PAINTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 23 May 1913
DETAILLE AS PORTRAIT PAINTER. Edouard Detaille's renown as a bat tle painter sometimes brought him strange commissions. One day there knocked at his studio a shy private soldier. He wanted a portrait of himself in uniform, to send to his par ents; he had saved up twenty-six francs for the purpose—he hoped that that was enough. It waa in- fact too much. Detaille dashed off the portrait In a few minutes, and then-said— "Never mind about the money. You;'j: may keep It to drink my health with'0 on one condition—that you don't re commend me as a portrait painter to your friends in the regiment. If you were to do that there would be some danger of my being overworked."
