No. 41. FARMING IN THE "DRY" DISTRICTS. The first results of fanning operations at the Nyngan State Farm are encourag ing. The manager of the farm (Mr. II. .7. Kelly), in a report, says that the first harvest, considering the dry season, has been very satisfactory. The rain fall for the year has been much below the average. In (he autumn, (luring a. period of three months, only 2S points of rnin fell, that small quantity being the results of four separate falls. The wheat crop was planted from March to .Tune, but owing to the dry spell referred to, and to the fact that the land !u which the early crops were planted could not be fallowed for any length of time previous to planting, germination did not take place until after « fall of rain, totalling 0!l points, on the 10th, 1.1th, and 12th of May.

Some years ago a city improvement com mission dealt exhaustively with the subject" a...

In the A.B U. there is £2,924,618 of capital and reserves to guar antee £2,743,160 of depositand other debt Making all sorts of allowances, the A.B.O. has a foundation large enough to carry six or seven times the present amount of new public money in the business.

SPITTING—A SUBSTITUTE FOR IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 17 February 1912
Si'ITTJLNC;—A S U15ST1T U T lfl IRKKJATION. The decision of the Municipal Council at its meeting a fortnight ago, to invoke the aid of the police in putting down the spitting on footpaths nuisance, and to pre vent loitering on the footpaths, the latter step involving the dissolution of that popu lar institution, the kerb Parliament, has been the occasion for a little wrathful and much sarcastic comment. The subject cropped up during the police court pro ceedings on Tuesday morning, in a prose cution by the inspector of nuisances for waste of water. Mr. Reymond compared the prosecution with what he termed " the new idea " that people must not sit on the monument, and that they must not spit on the footpaths. He continued in sarcastic tones that the inspector now went about with a stop watch counting how many times a man spat in a minute. One would think that Forbes was a town the size of Sydney, or at at any rate one of the large cities. Forbes was probably like the Com monwealth, su...
