DEHORNING OF DAIRY CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 5 February 1925
DEHORNING OF DAIRY CATTLE. The dehorning of calves is . best ac complished by the application of caus tic to the liorn ''buttons', the two small protuberances which can be felt When the animal is a few days old ion Jeither side, of tbfb boll where the horns .emerge. The skin immediate ly surrounding each button should first .be protected by smoaring it with vaseline, and the button itself then carefully rubbed with the caustic pencil. Should the caustic touch the skin severe burning will occur and areas of skin will slough off. For the same reason, the caustic must not be handled with the fingers, but slipped for use into some metal holder, such as an ordinary pencil-holder. Four applications are usually sufficient, when the buttons will peal off, this marking the completion of the treat ment. The . operation in thus per formed without any pain to the animal, and the method is quite the most ef fective and humane. Adult cattle are sometimes dehorned by use of a special instrument, s...
A CONCRETE TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 5 February 1925
A CONCRETE TEST. ! About IS months ago, the Blue Mountain Shire Council laid down a strip of concrete on the Great Western j Koad, near the Lawson subway, as j an experiment. The strip extends the ! whole 42ft. width of the road ; is 20ft. in length, and 7 inches deep, and was j laid in four blocks. Tho cost worked j out at the rate of £72,50 per mile, ap proximately £1000 per mile less than the .Government estimate for a con crete main road. ' The experimental strip, after IS months hard wear* is I not showing the faintest sign of wear and tear, not even in the seams be tween tlie four blocks. It speaks well not only for the already-proved eili ciency of concrete on heavily traflik ert roads, but lor the thoroughness witn i which it is executed. As an adver- ' tisement, also, the strip has consid- ! able value, being laid at the front door . Of the Shirq's headquarters. IMany : thousands of motorists have; passed ov- , er it, puzzled' as to its purpose, and, incidentally, sighing f...
WEIRD FAMILY MIX-UP. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 5 February 1925
WEIRD FAMILY MIX-UP. An astonishing family mix-up has come to light in Queensland as the re sult of an application by a woman for .State aid for her childreu, whose fu tliuv she had not seen for some months. | She was not, she said, legally married 10 him, bat some ten years previously when she married another man, the sccoml had come along and had ottered his grey horse to-.fthe husband in ex- ! 'change for his wifej ? Evidently the grey horse was irre-, | sistible, aud was gladly accepted by stiie husband, who made the exchange. But the husband further demanded an additional 30/- purchase money, really ! to make' thio bargain binding. The wife duly became a partner of the joys and sorrows' of the erstwhoie owner of the grey horse. . An extraordinary set of circumstan ces later arose out of this partner ship. The lirst pair had three child ren. and there were six children of the second marriage. AVhen the lirst these arrived the actual father regis tered it under his own name, but ...
MARRIAGE BROKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 5 February 1925
MARRIAGE BROKERS. Berlin has no fewer than 1,000 mar riage brokers. They arc divided into three classes — first-class brokers, who deal only with clients of high social i standing; brokers of the second class, I who handle love affairs of the 'hour- I geoise,' and the third-class brokers, j who deal only with the workers. one ot cue leading .broKers, a. 1 woman, with an ?'upper class' follow- ! ing, boasts of having made thirty-six j matches in three years (says the' London 'Daily Express'). She says' the photograph of no client has re- j mained in her album for more than a ! year. Many of the marriages she arrang ed, she declares, really turned out to lie love affairs. ''This broker admits that most of her clients were women with doweries, whose beauty did not equal their fortunes. She said the most annoying feature of. her work was the disposition both j by rncuj and women to understate ages. I A properly authenticated birth certifi cate must eventually be produced, and the truth ...
THE CITY MANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 5 February 1925
THE CITY MANIA, I Says J..T.S. in Cowra 'Guardian': — 'The more one sees of the city and suburbs, the stronger grows the 'belief that a much- bigger evil than that of tho abuse of strong drink is tho gam bling mania. Thousands of young men I live on the game and never work, while there is a close network of agents all over the suburbs for bookmakers. Women and children are regular pat rons of those agents, who can be found in every street. A case t heard at Paddington Court last Thursday morn ing indicates how completely gambling lias the metropolis gripped. A woman, 70 years of age, wrinkled and almost tottering, dressed in a print costume, had been arrested for running a bet 'ing place, and was before the court, -he pleaded guilty, and was lined £20. The police report showed that the woman was conducting a betting place in her private house, taking bets from' neighbours, and had collected £10 iu bets the previous day. She had been so operating for over 18 months, work ing on a com...
THE SERVICEABLE PETROL TIN. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 5 February 1925
TIIE SERVICEABLE PETROL TIN.1 Tlie uses of the petrol tin have al ready been demonstrated in thousands of ways in our country districts, but ] the motorist who, after all, is the cause of their existence, probably uses them leas than anyone else. How ever, here is one way iu which they may be turned to good account. If a 'l'rimus' stove is carried in the tour ing kit it is very necessary to provide some safe enclosure in which to use ii, ! and this is easily provided by cutting j an old petrol tin so as to form a screen, j Care should be taken to turn down i the jagged edges thoroughly. If tho ; motorist is more ambitious, lie may j (it. a hinged top and sides to the tin I and use it for packing the stove and | pots and pans in. By punching holes ! opposite to one another at two or three | different heights up tho sides of the ! tin, it will be found a simple thing to t pass through straight pieces of steel wire so as to form an adjustable rack ! above the- flame.

SEVEN CALVES IN 25 MONTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 5 February 1925
SEVEN CALVES IN 25 MONTHS. Mr. Thos. II. Paine, on the Mar thaguy, has a cow which haa given birth to seven calves in 25 months, nil o£ which .survived. 'They were calved as follows: — November, 1922, twins; December, 1023, triplets: Jan uary 5, 1925. twins. Many people were of opinion that the calves would be stunted and weedy, but tnelr quality and early maturity may be gleaucd from the fact that the triplets were sold as vealers in a dull market at Iloinebusli on the 8th, and averaged £7/17/- per head. The cow is eleven years old, is by a Montgomery bred bull. The first five calves were by a Iltiddon Rig bull i bred by Mr. Fred Firth, of Lacklea, Warren. .
A DOUBLE PURPOSE SUIT CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 5 February 1925
A DOUBLE PURPOSE SUIT CASE. f. A properly equipped picnic hamper is a great convenience, but only those. ?'.\;hn make frequent excursions are dis posed to pay the high prices demanded for sucli items. However, it is' no great task to make a picnic hamper oneself and tlie components will not prove costly. The lightest and most durable container of all -it a fibre suit case, which can be purchased at a very reasonable figure, j The sort to choose is the broad, flat type. Now conies the task of fitting up the case for picnic purposes. Its is destined to serve a dual purpose, first I iy a carrier in which the provisions jiiid forks and plates may be packed securely and secondly as an impromp tu table. In order that this last use may be made of it, in accordance with the. plan which we have in mind, it will ,be necessary to carry out some slight 'alterations to tlie hinging of the lid. i If fhe. amateur does not feel equal to this, for a small sum any locksmith or tinker will do it for l...

THE LIFE OF A ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 5 February 1925
THE LIFE OF A ROAD, j The decision as to what constitutes the life of a rOad is an important llnancial matter for councils. Up to tile present it lias always' been the departmental view that a road is worn out in from I to 15 years. .For this reason loans by councils for road con struction have been made repayable I iy instalments over a term not exceeding uie lite of the road. The. matter is of particular interest to country councils uudcr tlie Alain Roads Act, because ! the council must pay its half cost of road construction within the same j term. It has been argued that the rule set down by the department : is I an over-careful one. The Country ; Roads Board in Victoria holds that the life of the roai^is not to be measured by the mere road surface and that no allowance -must be made for grading, drain jng, and for the road bed. In America road loans | are floated covering a term of up to 5 years. Recently the New York Bu reau of Public Roads issued a state ment supporting the vi...

THE PORTABLE TABLE. It may seem more romantic and 'bush like'.' to eat one's meals off a piece .of newspaper, spread on the j ground, and to pass tho time by di verting wandering ants and other in i sects from the food which is laid out | but most of us prefer the maximum of ; comfort which circumstances allow,, and the motorist is in thje lvappy position of being able to carry an al most unlimited equipment in com parison with the cyclist or walker. Folding tables are generally rather expensive items, which mostly are sold along with collapsible seats, but the motorist who is handy with ordinary carpenter's tools, con quickly make one for himself. The top of the table must be of a six.1 which -will lit eassily on the floor of the. rear compartment of the car, where: it is to be carried.'

CARRIAGE OF WATER. Although in most cases the tourist will choose a spat wliera good drink ing water Is to be had, it is neverthe less wise to carry water on the cur, and for this purpose, nothing is better (ban the time honoured canvas water bag. This may be slung either at. the rear or front of the ear, but the latter position is to be recommended, since less dust will settle on it there. A full water bag is always n stand-by against a depleted radiator.
