General Produce. RAILWAY YARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
General Produce. RAILWAY YARDS. A slightly better demand for choice chair was noticeable at the railway goods shed auction sales yesterday, and of such quality the market was somewhat bare, and buyers were will ing to give up to 4/4 for the very best wlieaten. Inferior sorts were hard to quit, some sold with all faults at as low as 2/3. In other respects, the dullness that has characterised this market for the past few weeks, still continues. In all, there were 104 truck loads of produce offered, comprising chaff 35, chiefly wlieaten and oaten; maize, 19; wheat, 18, which included some fair samples of second-grade., milling; potatoes, 14; hay; !); straw, 4; oats, 3; and pump kins, 2. There was a good demand for fine bright green lucerne hay up to 2/6 per cwt. Potatoes showed a decline of 5/ on the previous day's prices, and of 25/ per ton for the week; sales were made from 2/6 to 5/1 per cwt., the latter for Brown ell's, grown in red-soil country, and a very good lot. Best maize off...

SUSSEX-STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
SUSSEX-STREET. Local potatoes have been coming forward more freely during the past few days, twelve trucks being of fered on Wednesday, and fourteen yesterday. These, together with heavy deliveries from Victoria, caused values to recede. Prime Western reds realised 5/ to 5/1, Manhattan bringing up to £4/10/. Western Australia is a buyer of potatoes from tlie Eastern States, and good business would have been done m 2s ew South Wales' Westerns if they could have been guaranteed sound and grown outside of fifty miles from an Irish blight infected area. Western buyers were willing to give up to £7 per ton for prime f.o.b. in Melbourne. Knowing this, some of our local merchants thought to make a deal, and bought wi.tli that object in view, hoping to benefit by the satisfactory figures offered in West Australia, but unfortunately, though .their otterings were free of blight, tney could not guarantee them free of scab, though they were grown be yond the fifty-mile limit, and so the busines...
Councillors' Allowance. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
Councillors' Allowance. At Gilgandra Council, the question .f allowances to councillors wis be ing discussed, one member of council considered tliat they should give 'tlieir services gratis, while the others considered that they should claim the mileage only, as it was very little towards the compensation for lost time.
Elections of Mayors and Presidents. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
Elections of Mayors and Presidents. Every year the Governor, in a number of instances, has to exercise his power of appointment of Mayor or President, through councils hav ing failed to do so within the pre scribed time. It is contended by many persons that the time within which this is to be done (i.e., the first and fifteenth of February),un der section 35 (5) of the Act is too limited, leaving,1 in fact, only 13 days during which the choice is to be made. It must be remembered that, in the case of shire councils especial ly, many of the members have long distances to travel, and sometimes they are compelled to absent them selves from such meetings, through no fault of their own. We have come across a number of cases re cently, where absentees have for warded a reasonable excuse to the council, which has been accepted by them as satisfactory. Therefore, it does seem to us that the time might be extended, say, to the 21st Feb ruary. No bad result could, possibly follow, and it woul...
Administrative Expenses. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
Administrative Expenses. A very good provision is made in Regulation 6, 82 that "at the close of each quarter the Council may, by resolution, distribute the administra tive expenses in the General Fund among the Special ana Local Funds and Trading Accounts, on some fair principle of proportion At Liver pool Council's last meeting, the mat ter was discussed, reference being made to the large amount of expenses under this heading in the General Fund, one alderman considered a share of the administrative expenses should be borne by the lighting, sanitary and gas accounts. No deci sion, however, was arrived at.
Damage to Roads. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
Damage to Roads. The Engineer of Dorrigo Shire (Mr. H. M. Baldock) has drawn his council's attention to the bad state of some of the roads on account of the extremely wet weather lately ex perienced. Some of the roads have been badly rutted by teams with heavy loads of timber, which will cost hundreds of pounds to repair. He was of opinion that teamsters, knowing the soft state of the ground in the wet weather, travelling with heavy loads, were "wilfully damag ing the road," which was an offence punishable under Old. 30, clause 20. Tlitj matter was allowed to stand over. We cannot thinlc that team sters travelling legitimately over public roads, and through the roads being soft on account of the weath er, can be charged with, as the law says-"wilfully or negligently caus ing any damage or injury to any pub lic road." To violate that law, they must either intentionally or care lessly do the damage.

Election of President. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
Election of President. In a report which is before of us, of the proceedings of Cessnock Shire Council, on election of their presi dent, we read that two councillors were nominated. A vote was then taken, which resulted in Cr. Morgan beijig elected. The voting was as follows:-For Cr. Morgan. Crs. Bail lie, McKenzie, Morgan and Edwards. For Cr. McNamara: Crs. McDonald and McNamara." In view of the fact that Ord. No. 2, clause 7 (b) says that "the election shall be held by ballot," it is hard to understand how it can he definitely stated for whom the votes were given! Perhaps the council ignored the Ordinance!

THE PICTURE HAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
THE PICTURE HAT. Covered in black velvet, the "pic ture" liat is an accepted fact of the new fashion, as it has been of many fashions of the past. The shapes seen at this week's shows vary, but the style , is' very much the same. Some hints in choosing such a hat may be of use to my readers, for it may be most picturesque or the very reverse, according as the shape chosen is the "best ever" for its wearer, or not. If you have a round, full face or flat features, do not choose a shape the same width all round, but one .that lias a front brim wider than it is at the sides-the crown should be nearer the back than the front of the brim, the diameter measuring equally. You would look best in an oval shape if you are thin and sharp featured, short diameter of the oval being from side to side. If you are young you can wear a down drooping brim, but for her whose first youth is past it is a most unbecoming form of hat. Elderly women are supposed to look best in toques, but a well chosen bro...

BOURKE DISTRICT. A correspondent writes "The late glorious rains have car peted the land Avitli a - body of feed not seen in the district for many a season. .

TO MAKE A HAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
MAKE A HAT. It is not really difficult to make a . velvet hat, covering one of the Avired muslin' shapes, .with care and accu racy. Never use velveteen, as it is so heavy, but do not buy a too-ex pensive make of. velvet, as a fairly good one is the best for hat-making. Paper patterns of the brim, crown, topi sides should be taken, and in cutting, out the velvet from these take care that the shading runs all the same Avay. The patterns should be cut on the cross. Stick some fine pins right through the. velvet, and pattern into the table itself, but take care not to mark the fabric itself
