[?] SAND. A PASSING REFLECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 14 January 1910
Pi^HP3AliD' A f'^S-nVG ReSvU^TION; I In the mifrSay of this our mortal life. I find myself (as in one of the changes of a dream) at a watering placo on the East Coast. I find among other things that it is rain ing and. that my fellow creatures, or, at least, my fellow visitors, are in a state of irrational indignation over that circumstance. ,'j'How paradoxi cal it is in you," I say to them with astonishment," to come to a water ing place and exhibit distress when it 1 waters you." I explain to them how unjust, how fundamentally nnpoetic is the current prejudice against rain. I point out to them how, singular, an example this prejudice affords of. the perverse and artificial >nature. of our modern English 'patriotism. ..J.in: goes exalt our country for .all. ,tho things that she-is conspicuously with out, such as. militarism,, or wha^iUr; Kipling calls the Law; but all,Engn' lishmon join in■ .reviling: that_ lovap.lo and admirable English . thing,- the: English climate.

OUR PRETTIER HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 14 January 1910
OUR PRETTIER HOUSES. The aesthetic sense of the nation In regard to the construction of Its "villa residences" Is far more alive and cri tical than was the case a few years back. Here and there, of course, one does see monstrosities of architecture that are an outrage on a beautiful country; but the small house, of simple, inoffensive lines, and of good propor tion, seems to be becoming much more the rule. - — "Country Life."
THE NAVY'S DAILY PAPER. HOW JACK LEARNS THE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 14 January 1910
THE NAVY'S DAILY PAPER. HOW JACK LEARNS THE NEWS. "We get the Poldhu telegram each day from Cornwall, and look eagerly for the news of the. RS&ce conference." The above sentence in a letter from a bluejacket on one of the British ships at present in the Baltic shows that now adays, the fleets which protect British interests abroad need seldom be out of touch with the events of the day. . In the British Navy wireless telegraph^ is not solely kept for signalling pur poses. Nearly every day a summary of the important happenings of the previous twenty-four hours is passed along the various signal stations, and then sent by wireless, telegraphy to the flagship, which in turn, by means of what Is known as fleet signals, re-transmits the informa tion' to all the vessels accompanying her. The hews is then written out pn a sheet of paper and posted on the notice-board, where it is consulted by the members of the crew. This little document thus re presents the daily paper of the blue ...
What is a Well-Balanced Ration? [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 14 January 1910
Wliat is a Weil-Balanced Ration? There seems to be some misapprehen sion amongst dairy farmers as to the :term "balanced ration." To take a prac tical illustration, we all know that we cannot live on potatoes alone, any more thaii we would expect a bullock to fatten on straw alone, simply because potatoes and straw are largely composed of one oids or proteids, fats, and carbohydrates Most of our farm foods contain albumin oids of proteids, fats, and carbohydrates in varying proportions, besides water and ■mineral' matter. While these various constituents servo different purposes in the animal economy, yet all are needed in certain proportions. The albuminoids —or "flesh formers," as they are some times called—go to produce muscle, and repair the wear and tear that is con stantly going. on,: while the fats and car bohydrates "produce heat and energy. Al though the proportions fed may and do vary with different classes of animals, yet , all the constituents are necessary, viz., the al...
ENGLISH RAILWAYS. AS BUSINESS BUILDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 14 January 1910
ENGLISH RAILWAYS. AS BUSINESS BUILDERS. A "Railway Man" writes in the London "Daily Mail" of September 4 th:— In the face of all that English rail ways are at present doing- in the way of providing cheap and fast travci Jing faci'ities for passengers, it would -be rash to say that there is any1, lack of 'enterprise in this direction. But from earliest times the passenger do-, partrnent has been the glorv of' the railway service. It is the show side, the advertisement branch of the busi ness, so to speak. There is, however, another department of our railways which has no external glamor, but wbich is, nevertheless, the backbone of dividend earning—the Goods De . partrnent. . ■ i * Railways were primarily vested with powers , in the interest of the community at -large, and ' early in their history , the Legislature inter fered1: toy protect the public against oppressive exercise by the companies of the great powers conferred upon them./' - ■...

ENRICHING SKIM MILK FOR CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 14 January 1910
ENRICHING SKIM MILK FOR CALVES. The necessity tor substitutes for but ter-Cat so as to make skim milk as good as whole milk is frequently felt by breeders who have valuable calves to rear. A nuinber of substitutes have been used for the butter: fat in skimmed milk, such as . oil, linseed meal, and other meals, but experiments with combina tions seem to indicate that it is difficult, to find a complete substitute for all parts, of the milk. The Pennsylvania State College station has, . however, conducted several experiments, ■with Uw following general results:— 1. There is little difficulty, in" raising prime dairy calves' without milk af.er they are two weeks old. 2: The cost of raising calves on a m'lk substitute, up to the time, they can be put upon a hay and grain ration, or when they are between three and four months of age, need not exceed 10 dols., exclusive oC care. 3. Calves from high-class, well-bred dairy stock, when raised in this way, are worth much more than . they cost...

L7,000,000 OF BRITISH CAPITA! , . IMPERILLED AT BAKU. "The destruction of the oil fields'Mn the: .Baku district will probably put back the industry for many years," was the pessimistic'view "expressed to the "Daily Mail" on-September 7th by an official of Messrs Lane and Macandrew, a firm having close connection with the Russian trade. , That view was also shared by prac tically everyone in the .city connected with the Baku oil trade.

Dent, is to be come, immediately involved in a chain of the most interesting re miniscences connected - with the ab sorbing history of the produce trade of our .State, and were such a. publication undertaken, it would be certainly incomplete while the history of this firm was absent from its pages.

The People of N.S.W. and Land Values Taxation. Mr R Houston McNeice (of Messrs Paling and Co) writing' to a friend in Wellington, New Zealand, says : —What is not generally known is the fact of an almost unanimous intelligent public opinion in favor of the gradual reduction and ultimate abolition of all fornix of taxes oil industry and thrift and tho substitution of a gradually increasing tax on land values, exclusive of improvements and without any form of exemption. You will readily understand how authoratively I can speak on this matter when you hea"r that for nearly fourteen years my perambulations have been through Queensland and New South WaleH at the rate of 600 miles weekly or 30,000 miles per annum. In every town, village and hamlet, the teaching of the great French school of physicists existent prior to the Revolution in 1790, and slightly revived by Richard Cobdou, but made a real liviiig question by Henry George is well understood.
