WHO SHALL KEEP BEES? [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910
WHO SHALL KEEP BEES ? . It is not so very long since it was said that anybody can Keep bees. That was true, but it is not now. Times and conditions have changed. The unfitted bee-keepers will have to yield and give way to the more fit, just as small manu facturing concerns, illy located and with out the power, machinery, and the brains to run ■ them, have to give way to the larger and stronger ones. The bee-" keeper who gets out oC the old rut? travelled by his grandfathers, and ad justs himself to present' conditions, is wise: He must,, keep pace with the times, and to do' this he must think, study, and read. He must adopt new methods and apply them. To such a j bee-keeper success may be assured.
Correspondence. (To The Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910
Correspondence. (To The Editor). Sir,—In your issue of the 11th inst 1 hare read with pleasure your re marks relating to the adrisability of the Boree Shire employing an Engineer on its own. With your permission, Mr Editor, through your columns I will endeavor to point out the reason why the ratepayers of Boree or any shire will be better serv ed by having nn engineer of their own. But before dr.ing no I must fcubmit our Councillors to some criticism, by infnrmining thetn that they are weak kneed; and I will chow your renders why such is my opinion. 1 have sent several petitions to the Boree Khire Council to have certain important road work done, and whether funds are available or not one will get a Teply that the woi k in question is referred to the engineer for report. To my way of thinking the engineer rules ' our council. In bny council the Coun cillors should direct where public money is to-be spent, and the duty of the engineer is to see that the work is faithfully carried out...

THE AQTJIDABAN WRECK. , THREE ADMIRALS LOST. i The "Daily Mail" of 13th February wrote:— The explosion which sank the Brazili an ironclad Aquidaban on the night o£ 1st January in the Bay of Jacueeanga "was a terribly dramatic disaster, briefly reported by cablegrams on the 22nd and 23rd; and all the supplemental details | that are ever likely to become known are contained in a letter received yesterday from the "Daily Mail" correspondent at I Rio de Janeiro. ' , The accident took place at 10.45 p.m. . The night was pitch black, not a star showing. Many distinguished officers who - were on board were seated at a table conversing about official ceremonial plans for the morrow when they were interrupted by a tremendous explosion and a great column of fire and smoke, followed by several minor explosions of shells and other ammunition. In four minutes the.waters of the bay had closed over the doomed ironclad. Throe Rear-Admirals — Graca, Roeha, and Brazil; five captains, over thirty juni...

"THE JACOBITES' CHURCH." [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910
"THE JACOBITES' CHURCH," St. Margaret Pattens,,the City church where the. "Jacobites" have been hold ing their annual service, has a sadly prosaic title,for such a romantic reunion. The name (writes the "Westminster Ga zette") comes from the noisy "pattens" used by our ancestresses on wet days, "which aforetime were sold" in adjoin ing Rood-lane, but now linger only in Arcady. A noted former rector of St. ■ Margaret's was Dr. Birch, ^vho, in the : opinion of that t competent critic Dr. Johnson, "had moj;e anecdotes than any man." This fine "Wr^n church possesses, among other art treasures, a small but beautifully executed Work of the seven teenth century Roman painter, Carlo Maratti. \ , I . . ^ .

Temperature of the Soil. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910
Temperature of the Soil. The teniperatuie ol' the soil no less than its moisture, antl chemical consti tuents, exercise an influence on its crop growing capacity. Among the advan tages'derived from the use of farmyard manure is the warmth it imparts to the soil, as well as the increased retention of moisture. A series o£ useful experi ments have recently been carried out with the view o£ ascertaining the dif ference of the temperature in cultivated and uncultivated soils. The results in dicate that ploughing and fallowing pro mote a more rapid exchange of tempera ture. Both the rise and fall of tempera ture were found to oe considerably greater in the ploughed and mellowed soil than in the unploughed land, the difference between the mean tempera tures of the two during the summer weather reaching: two degrees and be tween the extreme maximum tempera ture five and more degrees. On the other hand, the minimum temperatures were lower on ploughed land ' than on un ploughed by almost one...
HISTORIC IMPORTANCE OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910
HISTORIC IMPORTANCE OF WHEAT. Wheat, since the earliest' j;&lt;ariod to which history reaches, has always been accounted the most valuable grain of the culmiferous tribe, hence all improve ments which repeat its culture are of greater importance to the husbandman than those which relate to other grain. The fertility of this grain is even greater than that of any other. Pliny, who lived in the first century A.D., mentions some instances of fertility which are too remarkable to be omitted. "Nothing," says that celebrated writer, "is more fruitful than wheat (which is the chief support of mankind), for, with a bushel, 150 have been produced; and the procu rator sent to Augustus one grain which h/ul~4Q0 stems, and another was sent to "Nero which had 350." Though we have not in our day such instances of produc tiveness, yet it would appear that the taste or appetite of mankind for wheat bread continues lo be similar to what it was in Pliny's days, and assuredly no other article o...

THE "MAMMOTH" AIR LIFT PUMP. The "Mammoth" air liCt putnp. a con trivance which is particularly suitable Tor raising- large quantities of water from artesian and other deep weljs, has just been placed on the market in England. It is gen erally agreed tliat pumping machinery of this class is the most efficient as re gards ability to raise from a well of given size the maxi mum volume of water, and the "Mammoth" appa ratus appears to possess certain fea tures of a very ad vantageous nature as compared with the .ordinary class of air lift pumps.

THE BEEKEEPER PONNEN CROWDED COMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910
I THE BEEKEEPER POIiliHW CROWDED COMBS, Various are the reasons why bees do . badly in certain cases; it may be that they have a poor queen, 'or'they may be in a weak "condition early in the year. , They may suffer from disease, dysentery, I or foul brood; they breed slowly because , of the scarcity of,stores in the combs, | but how often do we hear that it is want . of empty cells that is the positive cause | 'of really slow progress, even while urg j ing the bees while feeling." ; Want of cells — that is, empty cells— ' anight be considered due solely to the combs being filled with honey, but' it is j not so. in most cases, if the queen j is wanting, empty cells when laying in , ! earnest, it is because the combs contain too much pollen or bee-bread. The bee-bread the bees must, have in : the spring, when brooding commences, 1 it i.T not to be ' obtained then from the flowers. They, draw their supplies from the surplus which they stored away the previous autumn. On returning from ...
