Persosial [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

<s Persosial There are a few picturesque old souls in the present New South Wales Parliament. One of tliem is David Storey. David, you must under stand), is leader of, the Independent PaTty-or the Democratic Party, a3 it is now called. In appearance he is quite unlike the David of Bible story. He may be in all respects unlike for all Ave know. Yet he is the leader of this particular party 01 which we have made mention. David's claims to notice are many. In the first place, he has a bald head. Witn every respect to the elect of Tamworth, we say that David's bald head is the most im pressive bald head in Parliament. We go further, and say that no other such oaid nead has ever before con tributeu to the production of political embarrassments. It differs from all other bald heads prominently iden tified with- the functions of repre sentative government, inasmuch as it has a stand-up lump right on tlic far aft of it. From such a configura tion we naturally expect something out...

Transfers. SETTLEMENT PURCHASES AND LEASES AND HOMESTEAD SELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

Transfers. SETTLEMENT PURCHASES AND LEASES AND HuMESTEAD SELECTIONS. The central idea of Mr. Nielsen's land policy apparently is to pin set tlers down to the land like beetles to a showcard in a museum. .Recently Messrs. Avern and Mcln tyre, of Inverell, have brought to light his recalcitrancy in regard to the purchasers on the Myall Creek resumed area, and steps are being taken to find out what the settlers on other resuhied areas (of which there are now quite a number) "o press for an. alteration of the law. The Minister is also blocking the transfer of settlement leases and homestead selections; upon grounds which certainly involve grave dis abilities upon existing holders. With the policy which precludes transfers to men already gorged with land we . are in agreement ; but what useful purpose can be served in preventing the transfer 01 a block of country from' one man who wants to quit it to another man who wants to use it, the Minister has yet to explain. So long as it is assvr...

FAT STOCK. SHEEP. At Thursday's Fleinington fat stock sales, the total number of sheep and lambs listed for sale from 190 con signors, amounted to 43,271, out of which were sold 43,229. All grades were represented, merinos, as usual, predominating, with a fair supply of crossbreds. The quality of the bulk ranged from good trade to prime, with a moderate supply of extra prime. The crossbreds showed to best advantage. Small consignments were much in evidence. Only live lots ranged from 700 to 990, 23 from 400, the balance in lots of 50 up. Buyers were in full attendance, and the market was very firm at last week's high values, the demand for good trade to prime being keen throughout the sales. Extra prime merino wethers sold to 17/9, prime from 12/, good 9/, medium and light from 7/. Extra prime ewes brought to 15/, prime from 10/, good trade 8/, others cheaper.

JUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

JUTE. ' Just;;, at .present it. looks as if the jute markets are going to . see' high er prices. Calcutta is undoubtedly veiy firm, iji tone with the cry of a shortage of., old jute, sustained and backed up by, higher rates quoted for manufactured goods. This has put more heart in the local market, and holders of cornsacks are now wait ing for 5/, with buyers on the look out for parcels under this figure. To land Avoolpacks for season's shipments on present Calcutta rates would cost over 2/G, so these goods have firmed up, and spot parcels are now worth 2/4Vs- Bran-bags have likewise shar ed in the general improvement, but the demand for these goods has kept dull, though they look like going above the present levels of 3/9% to 3/10.

FAT PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

FAT PIGS. Fairly heavy supplies still continue to come forward, the past week's yardings totalling just on 1400. Ba coners again comprised a . large por tion of the offerings. Quality in both the porker and baconer sections was quite up to late yardings. Back fatters were not largely represented. Competition for porkers on Friday, although good, did not have the effect of firming values, heavy descriptions suffering to the extent of 3/ per head. Young pigs, however, elicited keener biddings at very firm rates. Feeders, which were in fair supply, sold excep tionally well. Tuesday's sales, how ever, showed a further advance on all descriptions, especially for pigs, between the weights of 40 to 75 lbs. Bacon pigs on Friday proved rather dull, previous rates being barely main tained, but on Tuesday a good re covery took place, good useful sorts showing an advance of about 2/6 per head. Backfatters on both days were again neglected at poor ligures. Ex tra weighty baconers received better...

THE TREATMENT OF RINGWORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

THE TREATMENT OF RING WORM. Ringworm of tlie scalp is going about among children. It is very rarely that .a grown-up is attacked bv it. The worst of it is that it is most infectious, and you never know when the children may be exposed to infection through some unlucky chance. Doctors say it is a fungus which invades the internal root-sheath within the follicle (i.e., the tiny cavity embedded in the skin of the scalp), in which each hair grows. In this horrible complaint there is mfe-.'tion in every hair, for it is a disease of the roots of the hairs, and not of the skin itseu. It is this cause that makes it so hard to get rid of ring worm once it shows itself. The dis eased hair roots infect each separate newlv-growing healthy hair. Inus it spreads all over the head unless taken in time, for the diseased liaira become brittle and break off, the tube of the hair being practically choked with the fungus, giving the head that peculiar appearance which is called ringworm, though a "worm...

Councils Officials. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

Councils Officials. From the "Cootamundra Herald" we extract the following:-"By many ' of the reports of the local government elections, it is brought home to "us. that the clerks of the municipalities and shires are not successful as re-' "turning-officers, 'ami as chairmen at mayoral elections. . Their blunders, overbearing disqualifications, in some cases quite childish decisions, and their incapacity were conspicuous." Orara Shire Council has been con sidering the new regulation regarding the .appointment^ of clerk- to two or more areas, which says that a clerk cannot hold that position in two areas _ unless the councils have en tered Into, an agreement. The deci sion of the Council was that the Clerk's services be retained in accord ance with tl*4e new regulation, and that the Dorrigo Council be asked if it was agreeable to enter into: an agreement for his joint services. Mr. J. J. Greene has resigned his position of Shire Engineer at Cul cairn. . Tintenbar Council has increase...

A FEW FALLACIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

A PEW FALLACIES. Several fallacious conclusions in these two articles above alluded to stand up invitingly, like ninepins to be knocked, over. The first, is that houses would be better built if more thought were given to their plan ning. The one great consideration in building is cost. The builder has a certain sum to go upon, and for this he must give as good value as he can. For the rent of, say, £1 he offers a truly inconvenient little den, but it is the best he can do at the price. In Utopia we shall all be suitably housed, but not in Sydney, with rents running up the way tliey are. In this modern villa (you'll get one a little more roomy and cornery and Queen Anne-ist for 30s.) are, you must admit, plenty conveniences. We can never improve upon the gas stove and the gas heater (until we get electricity). Another suggestion that should be looked upon askance is relying upon the children too much. In the coun try children are called upon to play a great part in the day's work. We...

WOMEN CENTENARIANS. Mrs. Elizabeth Hay. of Melbourne, was 105 years of age this month. She is not an Australian horn, hut came out in her teens. Like many who have known early pioneering (lays, her fortunes have not improved with her 3*ears, and now she is an inmate of the Queen Victoria Home for Aged and Infirm, in Melbourne. On the west coast of Clare there was a few years ago. an aged woman, Anne Armstrong', who was in full posses sion of her faculties at 117 years, but. the latest living example of old age comes from Bulgaria, where a wopif.n still lives who was born 1784, whilst Germany has a lady resident who is behind a. year (being 125), to her neighbouring State's woman, who is said to beat the world's re cord.

Municipal Borrowing. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

Municipal Borrowing. One of the country municipalities which has, hi common with many other councils in the past borrowed about up to its limit, has received a letter from the Works Department, as follows:-"A number of the council's loans were obtained, many years ago, and have been renewed from time to time; but, up to the present date, nothing appears to have been paid off. The loan money appears to have been spent chiefly upon permanent im provements, probably road work, and such works have only a life of 20' years, or less. It is only a matter of a very short time before the coun cil will find itself in the position that these works will have vanished, -but ", the; debt will remain. Some provi sion should be made regularly every year towards repayment of the debt. When the loans fall due for payment, the council will find it necessary to apply for the Governor's approval to borrow for the purpose, and if ade quate contributions have not been made to a fund to provide for ex ting...

The Origin of the Present Day Shorthorn. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

The Origin of the Pre sent Day Shorthorn. The breed originated largely in the north-east of England about the county of Durham, and in the valley of the Tees. They were once termed Durliams, and are still known by that < naipe ; in 5:tlie ? Argentine. -The first- start of the breed would be with the aboriginal' cattle of the dis trict, and the lirst known graders up were -the- brothers; Charles * andRobert. Collings, who flourished about the be ginning of the nineteenth century. At that time the Shorthorn cattle were high standing, but as a result of the Collings's labours, and special ly through selection, they reared^ a class of-cattle wider in their ribs, shorter in their legs, deeper fleshed, and coming more quickly to maturity. To show how their labours were valued, at Charles Collings' sale in 1810, his cows and heifers sold avera ged £110 each, and the bull Comet made 1000 gs.-a tremendous price for 100 years ago. We now come to the splitting of the breed into two ...

INSPECTION OF MEAT FOR EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

He intends , to fol low the American idea of both an ante-mortem and post-mortem exa mination of the animals intended for slaughter, as the result of an inti-; mation he lias received that if such a rigorous method is adopted the Bri tish Government will deal more leni ently with, regard to Australian beef , than heretofore, and the fact that, the American authorities have inti-' mated that with the enforcing of the method the States- will probably be come a large importer of Australian beef and mutton; That there will be much opposition by the shippers to the new condition goes without say-, ing, not so much against the prin ciple of the method, but it will mean extra expense and delay to the slaugh ter companies, and extra expense to the Customs administration. Seeing that beef, mutton, and lam...
