Another Tragedy [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 January 1904
* Another Tragedy TRULY it may be said of the year 19041 that it has been baptised in blood. Just ten days ago the tragedy at Waterloo came to shook a holiday.making community; and that awful happening was quickly followed by the catastrophe on H.M.S. Wallaroo. Then, on Friday last, a sailor was done, to death on board a ship berthed at Miller's Point. Smaller crimes occurred between the happenings of those larger ones ; and Tuesday has been marked by another domestic trag. edy, at Newtwn. A married couple, who bnt recently took up their abode in a house at the corner of Wat):in and Wilson Streets Newtown, were this afternoon found dead at their late residence. The woman's head had been almost severed, and her husband having killed his life's partner, committed suicide. The deceased couple had only occupied the house in which the tradegy was enacted for about a week, having previously resided at the Glebe. Both appear to have been haunted by halluoination4. Several times they compla...

Our Emperlnme tal Farm. ACCOMPAINED by the director of the. depart. ment, the Minister of Agriculture (says a Sydney daily) has just paid a visit to the Queanbeyan district, where some interesting experiments in the growing of rust-resistant wheats are being carried on.

Last sear Mr Farrar distributed this wheat to a number of growers, and as the result appli[ cations have been received for larger supplies The quantity available is however at present very limited. Mr Farrar is also busily engaged in experimenting with wheats that shall resist the disease known as bunt, and is making good progress. He hopes in the course of s few years to be ab...
Subsidy to Agricultural Societies [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 January 1904
Sulbsidy to Agricultural Societies' AT a meeting of the committee of the North. ern Agricultural Association at Singleton on Saturday a letter was reed from Mr. Lalor, secretary of the Pastoral and Agricultural Societies' Union of New South Wales, stating that under the present unsatisfactory ar rangement all societies do not share equally in proportion to their respective membership in the large sums of taxpayers' money paid out annually by the Treasury. To equalise in fairnessto every society in New Soruth Wales, he desired to know if the Northern Agricultural Association would be in favour of totally abolishing the " special prizes and grants " fund, and only having the present I" subs;dy " fund, but equal in value to both funds as at present, thereby raising the present 10a subsidy to 13s or 14s on every £1 of membership, thus placing every society on an equality.

Bungendore. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 January 1904
Bjungendore. THE SEASON.-The town has been exception. ally quiet since the holidays. Every one is busy harvesting, as the weather of late has been-most favourable. The greater part of the hay and oat crops is garnered, and farmers are now engaged getting in the wheat. Rust has appeared in some of the paddocks, but, fortunately, came too late to injure the grain very much. Another pest, in the shape of minute flies has attacked fruit on the trees, potato tops and garden plants generally. They are in swarms, completely covering small fruit'suoh as cherries, &c. They also devour the leaves of potatoes, leaving only the stalk standing. Flowers, too, are suffering greatly from the pest. Her Paull, the talented violinist, has decided to leave for Braidwood on let February, where he is assured of lucrative engagements. Snakes are numerous, and nmany have beeq killed during the last week. Two horses attached to a sulky bolted this morning from Mr. Moore's residence in Campbell-stree...

Surplus Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 January 1904
Surplus Wheat. Aizr, the States appear to be served alike in the matter of a good wheat yield; that of South Australia now being harvested, is estimated at 14,400,000 bushels, an average for the whole State of eight bushels to the acore. This will leave, after deducting for food and seed requirements, an exportable surplus of about 300,000 tons. Last year's total yie'd was 6,354,912 bushels, or on an average of 3.64 bushels per acre, So that the present harvest will be considerably more than double that of last year. The area reaped this year is estimated at 1,800,000 acres.

Shearers Prosecuted. AT the Adaminaby Police Court on Tuesday, before Mr. F. Galbraith, P.M, and four justices of the peace, Charles Woodhouse summoned David Roberson, John M'Intyre, William Jones, Patrick O'Neill, James Huggett, and James Shooks" for absenting themselves from their hired service as shear ers. Mr. Blaxland appeared for the complain. ant, and Mr. J. Amess for the defendants. From the complaintant's evidence it appears that these si: men engaged to shear at £1 per 103. They afterwards wanted 25s per 100, stating that the sheep were very rough The complainant declined to pay that rate. The defendants then left the shed. The defendants stated that they asked for 25s, and were told they could not get it. They waited at the board, but the bell did not ring, so they went away. Each defendant was fined 10a, with 5/6 costs and 1 guinea professional costs; in defanlt,seven days' imprisonment.
Open Column. WHEN PARLIAMENT MEETS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 January 1904
Open Oolumn. WHEN PARLIAMENT MEETS. TO THE IDITOI. SIR,-Ministerial and Labour members of the State Parliament are now confronted with the question which they laboured so assida ously to avoid. They have appealed to the people, and the people have declared against them. There must be a reduction of memr bers and on the lines advocated by .Mr. Car rathera and the Liberal and Refurm Assooia. tion. There is no evading the issue, although it is probable that everything possible will be done to delay giving effect to the wishes of the people. The proceedings during the coming session bill have to be carefully watched. Confronted with the certainty of losing their seat under a diminished number of electorates, many of the members will make a desperate struggle to retain things as they are. Certainly any attempt to re duce the number of members below ninety will be stubbornly resisted It is of no use the Premier denouncing the Opposition as bogus reformers but for their patriotic efforts t...

The Wheat Standard. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 January 1904
The Wheat Standard. A GOOD deal of interest is being shown by the grain trade in the fixing of the present season's wheat standard, which is to be made by the grain sectional committee of the Chamber of Commerce. Up till last evening, however, very few samples had been received from Riverina and later dis tricts. In the absence of these desirable and representative contributions the opinion was expressed among the trade that the work of fixing a standard might with ad vantage be postponed. It was said that a good deal of unnecessary fuss is being made about the basis of standard, the mixing of different grades, the advantage gained by growers of inferior Wheat, and the handi capping of producers of prime grain. What the trade generally require is that the f a.q. standard should represent a mixture of all good marketable grain. Producers of low or inferior samples of wheat should rightly stand out, while growers who through aooci dent or misfortune possess stocks of bleached or damag...

Garden and Field Calendar for January, 1904. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 January 1904
Garden and Fieldl Calendar for January, 1904. -0 (By A Laitsdowae, Seedsann, Goulburn.) THE soil is sufficiently moist for cropping and large areas of winter fodder planis should be sown at once. Good supplios of fodder roots and green food will' prove valuable and superior to bay, etc., for feeding, especially for dairy purposes. Mangels and Swedes should be largely sown, also Hungarian millet, which is grand for hay or green- feed and also for ensilage, mixed with green corn or sorghum. A bag of No. 2 or 3 Shirley's manure to an acre will greatly stimulate green crops. It is no use to try to grow nrope without feeding them. If the land is good run the soarifi r deeply over it after taking off hay, etc., and eow millet or some so*d, and there will be a good return. We again, urge sowing in rows to admit of thinning and cultivation between crops. T'he weather will remain stormy and nusettled Plonty of rain is likely, some strong winds, and gr,,at heat, but a good deal of cool seaon ...
