The Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
Tle Markets. Harrison, Jones and Devlin, Ltd., offered at auotion on Monday a catalogue of 1832 bales of wool. Competition was very active, Yorkshire, America and Japan operating with great freedom, and French and Belgian buyers also gave valuable support at times. Wools free of burs and seeds were in strong est request, showing an advance of 5 to 10 per cent, and moderately burry wools of good staple met a good market, even burry lots commanded more attention. One bale of scoured wool branded SPES/circle/Bona, sold on account of the French-Australian Patriotic League, realised £500. At auction and privately we sold 2453 bales. At the wool sales on Wednesday compe tition was keen for super merinos. Cross. breds realised extreme rates, the record price of 15&d : being paid. Sales included-TL.

Sporting. THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
Sporting. THE TURF. Flash of Steel, Futurity Stakes win= ner, is an imported horse, threeyears old, by the English Derby winner Orby from Blakestown. It was Flash of Steel's first race in' Australia, so that the colt has followed the examp'e of Land of Song, who won the St. George Stakes at his first. public ap pearance. Woorak, if Saturday's form at Caulfield was true, has apparently gone off in the sprinting department. In the Futurity Stakes the -speedy chestnut never struck the front -and even allowing that he carried a big load, Woorak, on his previous form, might reasonably have been expected to act as pacemaker,over at least the first few furlongs. The best form is winning form, or so the majority of backers think, and by this rule Traquette and Flash of Steel have firmed considerably in favor for the Newmarket as a result of Saturday's running, and Woorak has dropped back. The former two are now equal favorites for the great Flemington sprint at half double figures, whilst W...

FRENCH ARMY'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
FRENCH ARMY'S WORK. A long iccount written by the British observer who is 'vith the French forces in the western the atre, pays a gre'at'tribute to the work of~the French army.

WE have to thank the above com. ,pany for three most enjoyable even ings last week, when they produced at the>School of Arts " -The Silence of Dean Maitland,"' "Uncle Tom's Cabin," and " Called to Arms." The stories of the two first have been widely read, and it was apleasure to see the characters we have read and thought of being portravedvand made to live. The various chardcters in the several pieces were not only well but ably played by the memnpers of the company, amongst whom are several -artists whose names have figured prominently on the playb ills of some of our best metropolitan com .panies-J. C. Williamson, Bland Holt, Meynell and Gunn, etc. Those who witnessed the above productions can have but one opinion, viz., that it is the most talented and versatilie combination that has ever toured the provincial centres, and the .manage. ment are to be heartily congratulated for their enterprise in placing before Cooma residents such a rare dramatic treat....

WITH WHICH ARK INCORPORATED QUEANDETAN TIuEs, IUNGENDORE MIRROR AND CAPTAIN's FLAT MINUR TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 23. 1015. Citi'rent Topics. In Camp.-What a difference it makes when men make up their minds to make the best instead of the worst of things. At the Liverpool camp some thousands of volunteers, from all ranks of the State, are put ting up with all kinds of in convenience and deprivations, any one of which, if they were so disposed, might furnish a text for interminable fiery elo quence, and " letters to the Editor " 'without stint. "We expected to ' rough it' a bit and we are roughing it," is the pre vailing sentiment. The men, however, have comforts which it will not be possible to give them when they are really out for business. Water, for, in -stance, . is laid on. One of the tents is the Commonwealth Bank, another a drapers's shop, another, the canteen, and so on. The other day, the. Com 'mandant told a reporter, he had need of a surveyor. . One was quickly found in the ran...

Moran and Dulbunty, who are alleged to be conducting a fraudulent sale of a powder mixture for cleaning, clothes, etc.,. called "-Ammoniac." The men are travel -ling by train, and are working all the large towns between Melbourne and Sydney, by calling at private houses and selling the abovenamed powder in coloured packets at 2s each, after promising to deliver six teacups and .saucers to each purchaser of the powder at a later date. The cups and saucers are not delivered as pro mised, and in consequence the public are being victimised by means of a false promise.

Garden and Field Calendar for February, (B A. Lansdowne, Goulburn). [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
Garden and Field Calendar. for February, (B A. Lanadowne, Goulburn). The weather has been as ýý e fore casted. 'Thi. present spell of. heat is; a bit trying: for' some crops, but just the thing for tonuitoes, etc., and will also give color and flavor to fruit. Keeping' the surface loose and. clean is- thc chief factor in successful growth dluring hot, 6lry weather. In orchards, especially, on no account should crops of w,,eedis be, allowed. They rob th trees, and;' if .not ploughed in, the soil also. Apiply water to the roots, not ver the surface. Three-fourths of the water -used. is only waste. Fodder is certain to be dear during winter, and the grower who 'has good' sup plies will be on the safe side. All available land should' be cropped, or prepared for cropping. A repetition of January wveather is likely-mon soonal rains, thunderstorms, and. squalls, with intervening cold snaps and sea breeze. Be' sure that all drains; roofs, etc., are in ordler.
