HERD IMPROVEMENT. USE OF JERSEY SIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 April 1925
HERD IMPROVEMENT. . USE OF JERSEY SIRES. In a letter on the Jersey sire as a factor In herd improvement and econ omical production, by Mr. H. JD. B. Cox, at the Showground, he laid stress upon the desiraoility for the use of Jersey bulls in improving ilie aver age herd of the State. He baid 'inat Increased production had been advo cated, and this could be achieved with the present herds by better and and more liberal feeding. Hut tnis did not touch the central probit- m of the industry, which was that »t iik.to economical production and iaiprci'eJ marketing. The existing average production per cow for the Ktaie was about 6001b of butter a year, but by improved cattle it was saC*. tu say the aggregate production couli l.e brought about with half the iwmb'jr of cattle. This would lead to a:i en ormous saving in capital investment, both in stock and land, with a light ening of the burden upon the average farmer and, his family. ' It was nut necessary to substitute pure-breds to bring t...

The Taralga Echo. SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 1925. LABOR'S FINANCIAL PROFLIGACY [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 April 1925
Wifi fealp €rlj0. SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 1925. LABOR'S FINANCIAL PROFLIGACY One of tlie advantages of having self governing States, bordering each other, carrying on experiments side by side, is the opportunity of mak ng comparisons of results under almost similar conditions. Queensland, for instance, has been under Labor Gov ernment for about ten years contin uously, while the neighboring State of New South Wales in the same time lias been under Labor Government for half the time and under National Government for the other half. Needless to say the experience of New South Wales has been Financial muddle under Labor, and reconstruc tion and reorganisation under the Nationalism. With Queensland it has been financial muddle all the time, for there has been Labor Gov ernment all the time. To quote the finance of the railways for the nie lyears prior to the advent of Labor to power in Queensland, the railways showed an accumulated profit of £219, 2S6—not a very large profit certainly —hut ...

WOOL REPORT Goldsbrough, Mort & Co., Ltd., re port under date 16th April:— Since the close of the last series on 25th March, 110 auction sales have been held, but in the Northern and Southern centres auction sales have taken place, and, generally speaking, the tone in the sale room has been brighter and values have just about equalled rates estabblished at last .jydney sales. Auctions will be resumed here 011 Monday, when disposal of this State's allotment of 47.500 bales will be en tered upon, our sales being fixed for 21st instant—2,300 bales, and 2Sth instant—2,S90 bales. While growers as a whole ileplore the heavy fall that has taken place in values during the past four months, the fact that there is no certainty that the bottom has yet been reached renders them more and more dispos ed to meet the market. Uuder con ditions which clearly indicate that wool is for sale, buyers will be more anxious to secure supplies while they are available, and it is only reason able to e...
(Published by Arrangement). Bribery and Conspiracy. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 April 1925
(Published by Arrangement). Bribery and Conspiracy. This is how the New York "TimeB" in a leading article, sees Prohibition: "The cost of Prohibition Unit has steadily risen. For 1926 it will be about three times what it was in 1920. The $11,000,000 asked for the fiscal year 1926 is only a part of the expenses of enforcement. The De partment of Justice will Bpend some ?8,000,000 more. The CoaBt Guard wants nearly $10,000,000 for the ."dry navy." Clearly, enforcement is a much harder business than was thought at iirst. "Here is the savory record: "Out of 4,990 dry agents appointed since Prohibition began, there now being 1.569 operating, 570 have been dismissed, 293 of them for collusion, extortion and bribery, conspiracy, false expenses, illegal disposal of liquor, false reports and thefts, and 277 for intoxication and insurbordin ation, misconduct and "unsatisfactory service."

TUBERCULOSIS. Health of Dairy Herds. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 April 1925
TUBERCULOSIS. Health of Dairy Herds. Mr. Mark Morton, M.L.A., hes re plied to Dr. Wade's evidence before the health commission in Sydney re cently, in which the doctor said that it was well known that tuberculosis was rampant in dairy herds. Mr. Morton states that Dr. Dick, Director Gencral of Health, in giving evidence before the Commonwealth Health Commission, said that in 1915 of 327; 700 dairy cattie examined, GSO were found to be tuberculous. Eight years afterwards, in 1923, of 336,360 head examined, only 336 were suffering, thus showing that in that time con demnations for tuberculosis were re duced by one-half. Mr. Justice MeCawley, Chief Jus tice of Queensland, dropped dead at Roma railway station while on his way to entrain. The deceased was only 43 years of age, and was the youngest Chief Justice in the world.
A Pleasant Holiday Tour. (Contributed by Lachy Lang.) [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 April 1925
A Pleasant Holiday Tour. (Contributed by Lachy Lang.) To those who have not seen the fer tile • and picturesque country in the Bathurst, Mudgee, Merriwa and Scone districts, etc., a trip through these centres is indeed very pleasing, both from an educational and pleasure viewpoint. The writer, in company with Messrs. C. C. Bradbury, J. A. Bradbury and Jack O'Brien, recently visited these districts, travelling in Mr. C. C.' Brad bury's Dodge car. Altogether a most enjoyable time was spent. We left Curraweela on the 9tli instant, going via Abercrom bie Mountain and through Oberon. The land in this locality is not what we expected to see, particularly from an agricultural viewpoint, and in the opinion of the party one acre around Taralga is equal to ten acres at Ob eron. The residents of Oberon are. how ever, optimistic regarding the districts future. The train service, they consid er, will considerably stimulate pro duction and give them the necessary markets which hitherto the distri...
SHIRES' POSITION. MAIN ROADS REPAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 April 1925
SHIRES' -POSITION.,' MAIN ROADS REPAIRS. A number of country councils ap pear to be confusing their position under the Main Roads Act with that of Councils in the County of Cumber laud, says the Local Government writer in the "Sydney Morning Her ald." For this reason resolutions have been passed ail over tlie coun try deciding that the council will not do any maintenance work on main roads "pending the taking over of the road by the Board." Here is a false assumption. The Board will not take over any country main road. Its only function in regard to these roads is to assist councils, by financing them in the maintenance or construction of a road and advising them as to the engineering methods to be followed. It. is necessary for councils to con tinue works of maintenance on main roads, or they may in some cases fall into such a state of disrepair that it will ultimately cost the council and the board a huge sum to make them trafflcable. The effect of the Act is to make the Board and...
50 P. C. UNFIT FOR ACTIVE SERVICE. WHAT SIR NEVILLE HOWSE HAS TO SAY ABOUT HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 April 1925
50 P C. UNFIT FOR ACTIVE SERVICE. WHAT SIR NEVILLE HOWSE HAS TO SAY ABOUT HEALTH. The Minister for Defence (Sir Neville Howse) speaking at St. Kilda last week, said he did not believe that 50 per cent, of the men of Aus tralia between the ages of 19 and 40 years, were medically fit to carry on in the defence of their country. This, he added, was an appalling statement, but it was prfectly true. The chief contributing factor to this was the teeth, and another was varicose veins. He also remarked: If you were to remove all the imagin ary ailments from the people of Mel bourne to-morrow you would take away 90 per cent, of their pleasure.
HOW I KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 April 1925
HOW I KNEW. I stood by the camp of my mate on | the joke; | His tent door was fastened, his dog on the chain. j I blew out my front teeth in whist- i ling the bloke; I 1 coo-eed, and .whistled, and coo-eed 1 in vain, Then reckoned he'd gone to the township. He blew into camp when the milk carts rolled by; He tockstitched and zig-zagged his way down the track; His hat he had swapped for a bottle of rye —The identical way that I often come back— So I knew he had been in the township. —BLACKBOY. Messrs. W. H. Wheatley (Croolcwell) will hold their next special sheep rani cattle sale at the Crookweil vards on Friday, 22nd May.
