A GOVERNMENT DAM. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
A GOVERNMENT DAM. That a large number o' people exist Avlio under no circumstances take steps to remedy an evil, Taut simply sit down nn.l ?suffer Bilently or otherwise is rather sur prising in these days -when, there are such a number of Progress Committees and otll'r nvnilnliln fliA nhirtP.t r»f ?whose existence is to see to tho welfare '?of the districts which they represent. This, however, is the case with a large number of farmers who are compelled to use the Government tank at Billimari. It will be remembered that -a petition Borne time ago was in circulation for -signature praying the Government to have this particulai dam thrown open to ' the public; this petition came, we believo, '^through the Cowra Progress Committee ?and was forwarded through ths local member. Although every resident of the 'locality, to whom the subject was a most important, one objected strongly to tlii^ ?course, their reasons for doing so have we understand never before been made public. When the dam ...

GHERKINS OR CUCUMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
GHERKINS OR CUCUMBEBS. In choosing these for pickling let them be as smooth and free from spots -as pos sible. Leave them in strong salt and water for a week, or until they become, yellow, stirring them every day. When they are yellow pouf off the water, and spread vine leaves over them. Boil the water in which they were steeped, and pour it over the cucumberB. Let them soak thuB until the water is nearly cold, then boil it again, repeating the process three or four times, taking cars that the gherkins or cucumbers are well coverad with the vine leaves. Keep a diBh and cloth over the top of the pan, so as to keep in the steam ; this will make a good colour. When ready put them upon a hair sieve to drain. The fattest man that has ever been known was Daniel Lambert, and he weighed 789 lbs. — a human elephant!

Our Opon Column. (To tho Editor, ) FERMALIN FOR BUNT AND SMUT IN WHEAT. Sir,— Having been approached by n Dumber of persons in reference to tho abort), although I do not claim to be an authority on tho subject my experience dating no further back than lust year, yot thinking it maj be of benefit ti; others who like myself aro not at nil satisfied with tho result of the bluestone treatment, give tho result of my expe rionce. I treated all my seed lust year with this material with the exception oi a few lands. This I treated with blue stone and experimented with them, cowing a strip of oaeli side by pido and on land that had been ploughed on tho same day. That treated formalin gnrmi n cited much bettor, and also made n better growth, and gave better results I than that treated with blue-stone, and without a trace of smut. Tho mode of treatment is taken from the Agricultural Gazette of May, 1900, is as follows To 340 parts water use one part of formnlin, ibis is about equal to two tabl...
SHORT STORY The Whirls of Time I. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
[?] Tlie Whirlgig of Time i. ' I think I Ehall call upon Mrs Jones after all,' remarked my sister-in-law, at last. We were sitting over tbe fire toast ing our toes, and trying to keep up a desultory conversation. We had not much in common, and I often used to wonder how she had managed to marry my brother. Neither beautiful nor rich ; accomplishments she tad none, not even eond housewifely qualities, so I had come to the conclusion it was sheer determination and a doggi 1 perseverance to gain her object, ar. ! fortunately he seemed quite happy and content now he was wooed and won. At. 1 she made a fairly good sister-in-law on the whole, though I would have prefers d if the had not been quite so anxious to i o me settle in life. It was the way in htr family ; in fact, in Castle-on-CIife gene rally, to strive as hard as possible to get eligible or even ineligible husbands— for ideas differ as to eligibility. I used to look at my brother, and at my sisterin law's sister's husband, and ...
Science. FEEDING THE SICK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
Science, I FEEDING THE SICE. JHfnlKATTEES which might seem trivial Sl3»Ir *° a he&lthy person are often cf the greatest importance to one who is confined to his bed with sicVnesB. Careless or wilful neglect of such details on the part of the nurse may cause what little appetite the patient has to disappear, while, on the other hand, a careful observance of them tuay encour I age a capricious desire for food into be j coming a genuine and pleasurable ap petite. I Before offering the sick person food his face and hands should be bathed. Punctuality and regularity should be as strictly observed in serving the invalid's meals as in giving medinine. The proper quantity of food to offer the sick, and the extent of its dilution, are matters requiring nice observation and care. Milk, gruel, beef tea, and stimu lants should not be diluted to tbe extent of making the quantity of the fluid bo great that the patient tires of swallowing, and stops before he has obtained the re quired amo...
A SEARCHLIGHT ON ZOLA. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
A SEARCHLIGHT ON ZOLA. Emile Zola, the famous French novelist ! — Zola, the most widely read Parisian j author — is a degenerate. That is the verdict of scientists who have studied him. They say this is in dicated by the thick ridge of the ear, by the crudeness of the lines of the finger prints. All agree thai; ne is abnormal, neuro path, one whose nervous Bystem yields painful, rather than pleasurable sensa tions. Tot this very quality is said to be j the stimulus to intellect which marks a genius. And Zola himself has read this sad verdict of the scientiBtB and confesses ! that it is all true ! In a searching study of Zola the quality of greatness dis&pbears like a myth. In its place comes a revelation of weaknesses and commonplaces. Yet, strange to say, when all these are put together again in the right proportion we have the man, forceful, with the intellectual power and quality of all qualities worshipped by mankind, the ability to succeed. As a mere freak of modern sci...
Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ARTICLES. SUNFLOWERS AS A MONEY CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ABTICL1S8. SUNFLOWERS AS A MONEY CBOP. S|Ej|9CCASI0NALLY the question of planting sunflowers is discussed by farmers, some of them having an idea that they can be grown with profit. But whethar it will pay a farmer to plant sunflower seeds depends^ largely upon his location and the possibility of a mnrkflt. Thp c.hief value of this crop is the oil, which is extracted from the seed. In many respects it is like olive oil, and is suitable for table use. Then, too, the cake left after the extraction of the oil from the seed is rich in nitrogen, and consequently valuable as a stock fold, which ib very palatable, and eaten readily by all kinds of stock. The branches and leaves of the sunflower are occasionally ukuu iui uul are uui - readily as many other crops. The seeds can occasionally be disposed of to'deaHrs in flax seed. It would be well for those who contemplate growing sunflowers, to open up communications with dealers before planting, and arrange for a sal...

PLANTING AND CARE OF APPLE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
PLANTING AND CABE OF APPLE OBCHABD. In order to assure reasonable success in growing apples, it is essential that the person engaging in the industry be dili gent, and have some knowledge of the business and a liking for it, and that the soil and position chosen are suitable for the production of choice apples, and that the market for the fruit is good and con mMiianf on 4-l.n 4- fxllif /tavi -Kfk tflallTTOrall ' to the consumer in prime condition. The beBt aspect for an orchard is usually on the north or east sideB of ridges, or on high elevations with some kind of a natural or artificial windbreak on the south and west. Other positions than thoBe described are sometimes desirable and successful, but an orchard should never be planted in low lying damp, cold soils, neither in poor, dry, sandy soils that lack fertility) or are too loose to retain artificial fertility when applied. The best soil for the purpose- consists of a sandy clay surface loam, over a heavy clay granite subsoil...
