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

NOTES. The abuse, not the use. of the bear ing rein, is the real cause of the pre judice which some people entertain against it. In the majority of stables there is nothing to equal good wheat straw, which wears better than oat or bar lev straw, is easier laid, and looks tetter. Hard 'and fast rules respecting (he diet of working farm horses are not desirable, -because changes of food are good; and at busy times, when horses are working longer and hard er than usual, the quantity of concen trated food should lie increased, as horses get more nourishment from this than from purely bulky matter. If the horse's mane be heavy and inclined to work under the collar, thin it out, because it will almost cer tainly cause a sore spot.

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. M. II. (Bogan Gate): When baby's toilet is being made, both night and morning, do not forget its eyes and mouth. A simple and safe method for the cleansing of these important organs, is to have a cup in which is a weak solution of warm boracic, by your side, and several small pieces of old linen (clean, of course), about two inches square. Place these round your little finger one after another. Clean the mouth thoroughly, then bathe tlije eyes. Never use the same piece of linen twice. Just throw it away, and take a fresh piece each time you dip into the solution. You will find this will strengthen the child's eyes, and keep the mouth healthy. M. O'K. (Grafton): For cock roaches, beach ants, and the like, make a fairly strong solution of alum -say 2 lbs. of alum dissolved in 3 or 4 quarts of boiling water. Let it stand on the lire until the alum dis solves, then, while nearly boiling, ap ply with a brush to every joint and crevice of the pantry, shelves, cu...

V.A.T.C. AUTUMN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

V.A.T.C. AUTUMN MEETING. The V.A.T.C. Autumn Meeting open ed on Saturday, at Caulfield, in ideal weather. Backers were in form, four first favourites and a second favour ite catching the judge's eye. Blairgour won the Oakleigh Plate, run over 5% furlongs. The Wallace -Wakeful colt carried 8.9, and can tered in with three lengths to spare, from Celerity (8.13), who won last, year, and the Rosehilh horse, Lantoka. Blairgour started favourite at 4 to 1, and as he opened up at eights, his owner should have had a good win. This win entails a 10 lb. penalty, for the Newmarket, which will bring Blair gour's weight up to 8.13, or 4 lb. more than he won with on Satur day. As a result of his Oakleigh Plate win, Blairgour is a hotter favourite than ever for the Newmarket. He is now five points shorter than Desert Rose, the second favourite, who is at just double figures. The great disappointment of the Plate was Gigandrr,, and a lot of Sydney money was lost on the bril liant Ibex horse, who, c...

DAIRY LABOUR FAMINE. South Coast Wants Hands. Is Eight-Hour Day Practicable ? " Indaba" writes from Berry : - "I have taken advantage of dis cussing the labour question with a number of coastal farmers who hap pened to be assembled at the Berry iSliow. I askea them particularly how they would stand if, by any chance, the claims of the .Rural Workers' Union were given the force ! of law ? " I began with the Mayor ( Alder man McLay), who happens to be a .dairy cattle breeder. " Look here," ; he said, " the first .question is not whether we shall .agree to this or that set of terms for ? labour, but whether Ave are to get laoour at all. I tell you Ave are suf fering from a labour famine. This . famine lias IIOAV reached a stage A'erg ;ing upon calamity, and, indeed, threatening the welfare, if not the very existence ol the dairying in dustry of the district. Labour is un obtainable even at a ruinously high figure, and unless something be done, and that quickly, I scarcely like LO think...

THE TEST MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

THE TEST MATCH. After a week's postponement, the test match started in Melbourne 011 Friday last. South Africa Avon the toss, and as the wicket favoured the bowlers, they sent Australia to the wickets. |n doing so, they made a mistake, for, although the wieket was not exactly at its best, Australia scor ed 317 runs for eiglit wickets during the day, and the innings closed for 328 after a few overs on Saturday. As usual Trumper and Bardsley opened for Australia, and Faulkner clean bowled tlie Australian champion for 7, and when Iiill was bowled by Llewellyn for 11, things looked any thing but promising for Australia. Bardsley and Armstrong stopped the rot, however, the big Victorian retir ing with 48, after being run out. Bardsley played a great innings for 82, topscoring. He was caught by Schwarz off Pegler. Hansford played a fine innings for 75, before he retired lbw. to Schwarz, and the Victorian seems to have re covered his old-time form. The con sistent Kelleway put together 59,...

With half-a-dozen of the Australian Eleven, assisted by McEllione, Barbour, Mac artney, and others, the visitors will he up against something solid. Some good scores were made in the prade competition on Saturday. Cody and Collins, batting for Sydney against Waverley, scored 276 for the '.'"first wicket.

Newton scor ing 97. Poor scoring was the order of the day in the University-Balmain match.

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

Boxing. The Sydney Stadium authorities are putting in a good deal of their time of late, endeavouring to bring off another Dave Smith-Billy Papke match. Smith is understood to be willing, but wants the fight to take place something like five weeks' hence. Even to this Papke is agreeable, pro viding the Stadium people will, recom pense him for remaining in Sydney for such a period. Something definite in regard to the match should be fixed up shortly. Losing against Thompson has set tled Papke's reputation as a fighter, and this defeat, coming after Smith's victory over him, will cause the Ame rican's to hail Hugo Kelly as the mid dle-weight champion of the world; while Willie Lewis is regarded in Eng land as having most right to the title. Papke will, no doubt, welcome an other fight with Smith to endeavour to recover his lost reputation, and he will probably put in a little training for it, a thing he neglected in his previous fights. He will need to be at his best to have a chance ...

ARE SHEEP DISAPPEARING? [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

ARE SHEEP DISAPPEARING? A United States Government com mercial agent, who is conducting in vestigations in the Argentine, states in one of his reports that there were 500 million sheer) existing in different regions of the globe in 1873, but there are at present scarcely 300 million. This is due to the yearly increasing area of wheat-growing lands, even in countries where wheat was formerly unknown. In regions where the cul tivation of the soil has become more intense, sheep farming, curiously enough, is considered a primitive in dustry, which gives comparatively good results on lands not fit for any thing better. In Australia, however,, we can afford to look upon the de crease of the world's sheep with equa nimity.
