The Farm of To-Day. (Preparations for the Taralga Show) [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 7 March 1925
The Farm of To-Day. (Preparations for the Taralga Show) We've bathed the bullock's tootsies, we've cleaned the rooster's ears; We've trimmed the turkey's wattles with antiseptic shears; With talcum all the guinea hens, are beautiful and bright, And Dobbin's wreath of gleamiug teeth we've burnished snowy white. With pungent sachet powder we've glorified' the (log. And when we have the leisure we'll manicure the hog. We've done all in our power to have a Farm de Luxe; We've dipped the sheep in eau do rose; we've sterilized the ducks. The little chicks are daily fed on sanitated worms; The calves and colts are always boil ed to keep them from the germs, And thoroughly to carry out our pro phylactic plan, Next week we think we shall begin to wash the tired man. —L.A.M.

Henty is not alone in this. Fortu nately there are no Star Chamber methods in either the Goulburn City Council or the Mulwaree Shire Coun cil. But there are other public bod ies who might take the hint! "Nun •sed."

A FINE RECORD, WHAT PROGRESSIVES HAVE DONE. LEADER STATE8 POSITION. (It must be clearly understood that the views expressed in the following article are not necessarily endorsed ; by this paper.) (BY M. DIXON.) .The leader of tlie State Progressive Party (Colonel M. F. Bruxner) In a ' speech at Lismore recently dealt exhaustively with the political situa tion and outlined the record of the Progressives during this Parliament. The present time is particularly op portune to refer to records of things done since it is upon those records that the various party candidates will, a month or two hence, make their appeal to the electors. — .That the Progressives have' noth ing to feel ashamed of is clear from the leader's speech, which was so distorted by the Sydney papers (to .which copies were handed for publi cation) that a reference to some .of its chief features is absolutely ne cessary. ;In dealing with some of the gains of the Progressives during the past three years Colonel Bruxner s...

Such was the impress ion gained by Sir John Vicars dur ing a stay of two months in Italy, from which he, with Lady Vicars, re turned.by the Aorangi yesterday.

Prance, which was also visited by Sir John Vicars, was, he said, mak ing a fine post-war recovery, but ap parently she was not sufficiently ap preciative of her debt to England. Speaking of the wool industry in England, Sir John Vicars mentioned the suggestion from Bradf...
