No. 40. WHEAT-GROWING. Ik the January number of the A'/rivuI lural Gazette, Departmental oilicers give Boino very useful find practical in forumtion concerning the production of wheat. The malinger, Bathurst State _1'arm (Mr. Peacock), refers to the produc tion of pure seed-wheat find its im- | provement. Much h:is been done in im- | proving the yielding powers of wheat ) by the Department, but intelligent fur- j nicrs slioivkl continue the work of nn provement. They should be enabled to do this to a greater extent than is pos sible at the Government institutions. Mr. Peacock points out that while the ; Department has produced, as part o£ ; its business, new varieties of wheat, and has tested such, the adaptation of those varieties to ft farmer s local con ditions, and the further improvement of the varieties by selection, should be | the farmer's business.

The Forbes Times. ISATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1912 MR. BEEBY AT BfjAYNEY. Of more practical importance thaD the personal issues between Mr. Wade and Mr. McGowen, as to ■what tlie latter, as Premier, has done that lie ought not to have done, and what he has failed to do that he ought to have accomplish ed, is the pronouncement of Mr. Beeby at Blayney early in the week. The member for Blayney holds the portfolio of Minister for Lands, and is also in charge of the Departmeut of Labour and Industry, and it was in respect to the work of these branches of government that the speech was mainly concerned. Re garding labour problems Mr. Beeby dealt mainly in those well worn platitudes about the desirability of maintaining harmonious relations between employers and employees, and oil the question of policy reiter ated his affirmation of last year, that the Amending Industrial Dis putes Bill introduced into Parlia ment by him on two occasions since the accesion of the Labor Govern ment to office, ...
GUITE SAFE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
GUITE SAFE. Uncle Silas was a bachelor, but was full of enthusiasm for liia married friends, so when his brother-in-law invited lilm to come and spend a few days and see his son and heir, (Jncle Silas gladly accepted. It -jviis really an education to watch the old gentleman try to amuse the six months-old child. Just for fun he would snatch his bottle away at feeding-time and wondered why tho youngster yelled. Then lie would tickle it almost into con vulsions. Finally he yavo It his watch to play with. Then peace reignod. And thus the mother found baby anil bachelor. "Good gracious!" she exclaimed to the delighted Uncle Silas. "Look! Baby's got the watch In his mouth. Ilo'll swallow it. Take it out! My hoavens, he'll chokc!" "Don't bo alarmed," lie said, smiling placidly; "I've got hold of the chain. It can't go far!"
THE CULTIVATION OF RUBBER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
THE CULTIVATION" OF RUBBER. It is curious to note that the first re corded mention of rubbor occurs in con nection with tlie game of ball. The historian of the second voyage of Columbus (says tho "Family Doctor") states that the Indians were in tho habit of playing with balls "made of tho gum of a tree. These, nlthough large, were lighter and bounced better than the wind balls of Castile." Long confined to Americn, and particu larly Peru, Iho rubber plant has travelled via Kew Gardens to Ceylon and British Malaya, and now promises to become tho mainstay of our Eastern tropical Colonies and dependencies. This good service to Ceylon was under taken by Kw, at tho request of tho In dian Government, who ordered some 2700 seedlings of the Para rubber tree. Hero thev have grown and flourished exceed ingly. Some of the original trees are still yielding, and from them thousands of cut tings have been distributed all over tho tropics. It is in Ceylon, however, perhaps, more than elsewhere, th...
CANADA THROUGH AUSTRALIAN:::::: SPECTACLES:::::: THE CALGARY STORY CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
THROUGH AUSTRALIAN :: :: :: SPECTACLES :: :: :: THE CALGARY STORY By ROBERT McMILLAN For hundreds of years there were raccs of people who believed that Englishmen wore, trousers to hide their tails, while others—or maybe the same ones—believed that they wore hats to cover their horns. Old legends dissipate slowly, and old beliefs cling on long after intelligence has developed. Sir Thomas More, one of England's great Lord Chancellors, declared that even when he sat on the Wool sack and heard a strange noise, the old nursery fear of ghosts swept over him, in spite of his large knowledge. I grew up with the idea that this western world, on the fringe of the Rocky Mountains was an aiKaline waste, where, in good seasons, men could raise horses and cattle. It used to be the chosen home of the Red Indian, the bison, the antelope, and the "FathfiVuler," of "Old Rube" and a host of bloodthirsty "Injun" killers. Captain Maync Reicl and Fennimore Cooper had made me familiar with the west, and ...
ERRORS IN DRENCHING ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
ERRORS IN DRENCHING ANIMALS. Stoclcowners complain that, although they - follow the departmental direc tions ill preparing and administering drenches to animals, they experience more losses thau should occur. Mr. Max Henry. M.H.O.V.S., of the Stock Department, in an article in the January number of the Aiiriciilturul Gazette, directs attention to the matter. He says that 110 drench is recom mended that lias not been put through the practical test, and it is dillicult to understand why bad results should supervene. Generally, one is inclined to attribute the cause to unintentional over-doing, dosing too hurriedly, and so causing choking, to undissolved particles of arsenic being given in the drench, and bo on. Some recent cases reported, however, suggest grave errors in the quantity of the drug being administered, on account of the varied weights and measures in common use. In one instance the Department re commended that so many grains of arsenic should go to a pint of water. In mix...

Pars About People. Great satisfaction lias boen ex pressed throughout England on ac count of the purchase of the log book of Nelson's ship, 'Victory,' by the well-known art collector, Mr, Thomas J. Barratt, chairman of the famous company that makes Feara' Soap. The log-book contains a viv id account of the Battle o£ Trafal gar, written on the day after the action. American collectors wers particularly anxious to secure the log, and one of them even made aa olfer for the two leaves recording I he events of October 21st, 1805. Mr Barratt, however, promptly paid several thousand pounds for the book, and thus secured for tlio nat ion one of the most precious rellca of Nelson.

The Story of the Crime. Engaged to Three Women at the Same Time. (From American Newspapers.) [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
Tlio Story of the Crlmo. Engaged to Three Women at tlie Same Time. (From American Newspapers.) Yet another grim poison drama is creat ing- a sensation in America. On this occa sion the victim is a pretty choir singer, named Miss Avis Linneii, daughter of a wealthy contractor, of Hyannls, a suburb of Boston. She was found, poisoned by cyanide of potassium, in a bathroom at the home of the Young -Women's Chris tian Association at Boston. It was known that she was in trouble. At first it was thought she had committed suicide or taken the poison thinking to cure a physi cal ailment, but a far graver aspect was givon to the mystery when the Rov. Clar .ence Richeson, a noted Baptist preacher, of Vambridge, Massachusetts, was ar rested on a charge of murdering deceased.

CITY v. COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
CITY v. COUNTRY. The report of tho Commission ers appointed to re-arrange the State electoral boundaries lias not yet got beyond the draft stage. It is understood, howover, tliat five present electorates, possibly seven, will disappear, chiefly from the country, and that others will be formed, chiefly in Sydney. It is stated that the five electorates to be rubbed off the electoral map are Clyde, Blayney, Deniliciuin, Darling, and Wynyard. It. is also said that Namoi and Castlereagh may be merged into one, and that Queanbe yan will probably disappear. The quota for each new electorate is 9 850, with a margin of 1200 above or below that number. Sydney's estimated population at the beginn ing of the present year was 051,S00, and its gain in population during last year is set down at 20,000. No other part of the State has increased in anything approacli the same ratio, hence the wiping out of electorates in the country and the gain of new ones to tho city, j and a further aggravation of...
