BORIC ACID IN BUTTER. SUGGESTION FOR PROHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 8 April 1924
BORIC ACID IN BUTTER. SUGGESTION FOR PROHIBITION. According to information which has been supplied by the Depart ment of Agriculture, manufacturers of butter in New South Wales are quite unconcerned about, the sueces *inn „..il ? ? ?. , : . v' ttuuivriuws mac the importation of butter containing boric acid should , be prohibited. The problem of turning out a product which will retain its freshness and quality without the use of this pre servative has already been solved. Very few manufacturers in this State, it is said,, are using the pre servative, and the whole of them are prepared to entirely eliminate its use at once. The choicest butter being manufactured now is of such high grade that it can be held for nine months in storage, or despatched to London without showing any sign of deterioration, either in condition or flavor, after its long journey through the tropics, and it does not contain either boric acid or any similar pre serving agent. This standard of perfection has been...

MARKET GARDENERS' UNION AND HIGH FREIGHTS. The Editor, The Mail. Sir; — At a recent meeting of the B.D.M.G. Union, the Secretary was directed to read a letter that ap peared in your columns re Market Garden Produce, Freights, etc., by Mr. Thomas Elliott.* Mr. Elliott strikes the nail in ex actly the same spot as the small growers of this locality did some two years ago. It was high freights, amongst other things that caused the growers of Burrawang, Wildes Mea dow and Avoca to form themselves into a united body, with the result ftiaf Kit Q ii nifarl ofFnt4 nrn animr I privilege of truck rate, providing we of the Union consign a full truck or trucks, as the case may be; by this method our small growers have saved considerably. I think it was at the February meeting that one of the members made mention of re-naming our Union — The Berrima District Market Gardeners' Association. We are of opinion that this would be a decided forward move, for the-simple reason that branches could be in...

CHAIN OF THANKSGIVING. MEETING AT BOWRAL. A meeting was held at Bowral Town Hall on Tuesday afternoon to inaugurate Bowral's effort for the New South Wales Chain of Thanks giving for speech and hearing. Mrs. VoTiflhlpR /Mavnress) Drfi sided, and introduced Mrs. Blackett Smith, who addressed the meeting. Mrs. Blackett Smith stressed the point that Melbourne, Adelaide, Bris-| bane and other large cities had wel-| fare centres, so New South Wales must not fail her adult deaf and dumb.

OTHER PEOPLE'S VIEWS. CIVIC RESPONSIBILITIES. ' The Editor, The Mail. Sir, — The prize essay on Civic Re sponsibilities has set some of our townspeople thinking — myself being! amongst the number. There is so much we could do for our town if only all those who wish to push it ahead could get together. Australia seems to be lacking in a senBe of civic responsibility; perhaps we are vet too voune a nation to eive the time we should to the subjects men tioned by young Mcintosh. Or are we of the Southern Highlands like our Sydney .brethren, who are the in heritors of a site so -blessed by Pro vidence that they are content -to. let well alone? Nature has been very good to us, but there are many things 6he has not done. Mr. Mcintosh has alluded to some of them. Let's get together and help along the good work. ' Yours, etc., PROGRESS.

JOADJA. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 8 April 1924
JOADJA. &nbsp; Mr. John J. Richards writes: — The story of Joadja is really a good one, if it could be adequately told, but it has been long neglected, and probably much of the data has been lost. In the early days the blacks were said to have burned the shale and thought it was a kind of stone. Early settlers, too, did not know its &nbsp; value, and lived to deplore their ig- norance. Mr. Duncan Macarthur was the first to appreciate the value of the deposit. He saw it would light, and took a sample to Mr. Ed- ward Carter, of Sutton Forest. That shrewd gentleman offered him a new saddle and bridle for the shale, and sent it away for examination. The result was satisfactory, and subse- quently Carter worked the mine known to this day as Carter's Mine. Later on, the Australian Kerosene Co., better known as A.K.O., bought the mine for £10,000. It must have angered Macarthur when he realised the deal is said to have laid the for- tunes of the Carter family, many of whom ...
DOES NOT FEAR DEATH. REMARKABLE INTERVIEW WITH CONDEMNED MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924
DOES NOT FEAR DEATH. REMARKABLE INTERVIEW WITH CONDEMNED MAN. The 'Guardian' prints the follow ing report of an interview with Ed ward Williams, under sentence of death for the murder of his children: 'I am prepared to die. To-day I received the final preparation 'for the end. I believe I am never likely to be better fitted to die than now; certainly not if I were to live for 15 or 20 ,years in the atmosphere of a prison.'— Edward Williams, who will be hanged at Long Bay on April 29. So the Paddington murderer spoke from his cell yesterday to a special woman representative of 'The Guar dian.' , He spoke calmly, and said he had always welcomed the idea of death. And he said that if he were ner vous on the scaffold, it should be at tributed to his temperament. 'At no time in my life,' he added, 'have I feared death. On the con trary, almost throughout the whole of my existence I have felt envious of the dead. When I have seen a funeral cortege I have wished that it was I who was in th...

SHIRE ENGINEER'S CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924
SHIRE ENGINEER'S CAR. At the monthly meeting of the Wingecarribee Shire Council at Moss Vale on Monday afternoon, the Engineer reported that he had re ceived a memo from the President to discontinue the use of the car, and to hand same over to the Shire Clerk, the reason put forward being that he disobeyed the minute passed by the Council at last meeting. He desired to say that he had not vio lated the instructions of the minute, and he had used the car solely on Council's work. It had been neces sary since to arrange his inspections by the use of a hired car. The super vision of the various works in pro gress throughout the Shire was of paramount importance, and lie had deferred a number of inspections un til a more inexpensive arrangement was arrived at. When another car was purchased it would, of course, have to stand rough usage in all wea thers and must be rugged in construc tion to resist the heavy duties im posed on it, otherwise expensive re pairs will have to be met.

FRISKY CENTENARIANS. YOUNG FELLOW OF OVER 100 ASSAULTS NEIGHBOR. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924
FRISKY CENTENARIANS. YOUNG FELLOW OP OVER 100 ASSAULTS NEIGHBOR. A resident megistrate on the bor ders of Mayo and Sligo had a curi ous case to deal with recently. One, Owen Connolly, a gentleman of over 100 years of age, was ac cused of leaping a hedge and assault ing a neighbor with a blackthorn. The accused walked nine miles to the magistrate's court and nine miles home. Stories of Irish longevity are apt to be suspect, for birth records do not seem to be carefully kept. There was a striking advance in the age of the Irish peasantry at the time of the passing of the Old-age Pen sions Act. The record story, probably legend ary, is of an Irishwoman, the Count ess of Desmond, who danced with Richard Duke of Gloucester, was married in the reign of Edward IV., and lived till 1604, finally dying, it is said, about the age of 140 through falling out of a cherry tree! Age records in themselves are dull and mostly mendacious; far more in teresting are the claims of authenti cated lives wh...
QUAIL PROTECTED. NO OPEN SEASON DECLARED. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924
QUAIL PROTECTED.. NO OPEN SEASON DECLARED. Quail are to be protected by the Government for the present year and for 1925. Quail shooters have one hope, how ever. Mr. Oakes, in answering a deputa tion of farmers and others, support ed by Sir Joseph Carruthers and Mr. Bruce Walker, M.L.A., said he would let them know whether he would al low them a month's sport or not. The Chief Secretary backed up the farmers' contention that 'quails were insectivorous. Sportsmen claimed that quails cat seeds and vegetable matter, and , wanted an open season declared by the Government, but Mr. Oakcs was adamant. He refused the request to allow three months of the present year for 'sporting' purposes. It was pointed out by various speakers that quail were useful be cause they loved a diet of insects, which in turn loved the crops. So Mr. Oakes declared quail 'pro- tected.'
