PASTORAL. SKIRTING THE FLEECE A SUGGESTED CLASSIFICATION [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 23 August 1928

PASTORAL. SKIRTING THE FLEECE A SUGGESTED CLASSIFICATION The following is suggested by the Sheep and WooTS Expert of the De partment of Agriculture as a suit able classification for skirting in the c£lse oil the ordinary small flock: — 'First Pieces.' — The bright, at tractive 'pieces,' with the low quali ty wool removed. 'Pieces.' — The skirtings of the 'first pieces,' dull, discolored wool, heavy conditioned 'pieces,' with the stains removed. Do not ? mark the low grade 'pieces' as 'second pieces In fact, the word 'second' on any ol'ass of wool seems to infer it is low grade; so it is as well not to use the term. 'Bellies.'— The belly wool with the stains (in case of rams ana wethers) removed. In larger clips, SEJy, 900 sheep and upwards, two lines of 'bellies' can well be made by taking off the brisket wool and heavy, yolky wool i'ronx around the udder.-'' The wool removed, and any Very poor type 'bellies' could be termed 'bellies,' and . the good, bright belly wool, which has be...

AN OUTSTANDING CLAIM ? ? ? ' ? ? - ? : ? : STYLE AND SPEED IN THE NEW FORD One of the outstanding claims rnkde 'for the New Fox*d is that it combines in a light car the comfort, style and performance which hither to wex-e 1-ega.rded as peculiar to higii nrirpd cars. Further! that, these ad vantages have been secured without sacrificing ease of control, economy in running, parking facility, or with out alteraton to those principles of light car design which years of ex perience have proved correct.

OUR FIRST COURT FIRST GUNDAGAI SESSIONS HELD NEARLY 70 YEARS AGO [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 23 August 1928

OUR FIRST COURT FIRST GUNDAGAI SESSIONS HELD NEARLY 70 YEARS AGO 'The fact that Gundagai Sessions are to be held netft month,' writes 'The Ancient One.' 'recalls the fact that it is nearly 70 years ago since the first Court of Quarter Sessions was held at Gundagai. . It was his Honor Judge Callaghan, who held that coui-t, and in those days court house accommodation was primitive, so the court was held in the Nox-th Gundagai public school, the scholars of the time being given two days' holiday. Judge Callaghan did the journey by coach stages to Gundagai, and on the evening previous to coming hei'e he put up at the Coolac Hotel, Coolac, where he met the gentry of the place, and the evening was spent in conviviality. Accompanying the Judge were Mx\ W. R. Templeton, the Crown Pi-osecutor, and Mr. Tem ple Nathan, Clex-k of the Peace. Their arrival in Gundagai on Tues day, Oct. 25th, 1859, was a notable event, and the whole populace tui'ned out to see them get off the coach, whilst the po...

FENCED HIM OFF THE TRACK THAT WAS AND THE TRACK THAT IS [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 23 August 1928

FENCED HIM OFF I THE tRACK THAT WAS AND THE TRACK THAT IS When William Corneilus Cassidy, oi' Adjungbilly, applied to Gundagai Land Board yesterday to enclose roads in his holding his brotherin law, appeax-ed in coux-t to contest the application. Applicant ioid tne rsoara xnax wie roads he wanted were useless ones. Only one was used for traffic and on it wex-e gates — they had been 12 months erected, and were causing no inconvenience to the public. The road was not formed. Cornelius John Kingwell, a grazier at Adjungbilly, appeared to object to Cassidy getting the roads. He deposed that he objected to closing — thex-e had been a thoroughfare through to his place for years, but Cassidy had fenced it off. If Cassidy left a gate on the old road he would have no objection. Mr. Weekes (for Cassidy) said his client had a pex-fect x-ight to enclose the roaid, if he left gates on it. If Kingwell wanted a gate on the track he was after there was a proper way ply to the Shire for an exchange ...

WHY MIXING OF SEED IS DETRIMENTAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 23 August 1928

WHY MIXING OF SEED IS DETRI MENTAL. . Many wheat growers contend that for farm seed a litte mixing does not matter, as the yield is not affected. In a' mixed* crop, however, the dif ferent varieties are often to be seen at various stages of maturity, ar.d to be of different heights — two points which affect the harvesting of the crop. By a wider view of the case (says a writer in the Victorian Journail of Agriculture), a variety must be kept pure, because it has been developed on account of r. der sirab'e character that distinguishes it i from other wheats. It may be suited to a particular soil, climate, or pur pose; and mixing means deterioration in the seed sample in this very quali fy.

THE GREEN VEGETABLE BUG SOME METHODS OF CONTROL [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 23 August 1928

THE GREEN VEGETABLE BUG j [ SOME METHODS OF CONTROL The green vegetable bug is a shield shaped insect, about half an inch in length, which has been noted , as a pest upon the fruits and foliage of tomatoes, the foliage and young' pods i ox rxencn Deans, anw un .jiumwes, melons, beet, citrus, maize and gar- i den flowers.

WITH THE MAN ON THE LAND. AGRICULTURAL THE MAIZE CROP SEED SELECTION IN THE SHED j With sowing time at hand, the question as to what are the requisite qualities in seed maize is one . of seasonable significance. The follow ing points in seed selection in the shed or barn are taken from a de partmental pamphlet: — i 1. Select ears which are heavy in j proportion to their size 'when dry. j 2. Soundness, weight plumpness, ? ! and good~ bright colour of grain are ' ' of more importance than depth of ' grain, which may be light and chaffy ! and of poorer 'Color and feeding value j 3.

TO A SALE [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 23 August 1928

TO A SALE 'What, am I bid?' j The auctioneer gazed at the semi circular auditorium, which was pack ed to the rafters with men drawn from the four quarters of the globe. The first on his feet was a keen faced Japanese. 'Nineteen,' he almost sci'eamed. Then followed a perfect babel of tongues. Men of all nations rose in all parts of the exchange. 'One-half — threepence — twenty — one-half — three-pence,' they screamed in quick succession. A few seconds later the auctioneer knocked down the first lot of greasy merino offered during the 1928-29 wool sales to a shrewd little Japanese in the front row. From then on until the last of the 700 lots included in the catalogue was sold the din was deafening, j Strong men ill-treated their iarnxes in their efforts to be heard, and be came hoarse and almost incoherent. A bright-faced young Englishman who sought to caitch t'.e auctioneer's j eye, broke into a shrill screech and laughed with everyone else as his voice crackej into a high-pitched fa...

BISHOP AND PARSON SING THE ONE TUNE "WE HAVE ENOUGH PESTS ALREADY." [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 23 August 1928

BISHOP AND PARSON SING THE ONE TUNE 'WE HAVE ENOUGH PESTS ALREADY.' 'We have enough pests in New j South Wales without prohibition,' said the Roman Catholic Bishop of Wilcannia - Forbes (Dr. Hayden), When opening a new building £.-t the Convent of Mercy at Brewarrina on Monday. Surely, he said, droughts, bush, fires, wild dogs, and prickly pear con stituted sufficient trouble for the State without introducing prohibition. He thought that even if prohibition were csirried it would prove invalid. The Constitution required that every law, to stand the test of validity, must be for the common good1, and prohibi tion would not pass that test. When he visited America he was astounded to rea-d in the newspapers every day the enormous number of convictions for drunkenness. In America prohibition was a: failure. 'FUNDAMENTALLY WRONG.' 'I have no wish to influence you j how to vote, but I feel bound to tell you that the whole case for pro hibition is fundamentally wrong,' de clared' the Rev. ...

DREADFUL DEATH TOLL [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 23 August 1928

DREADFUL DEATH TOLL 'Conditions due to overcrowding in U.S.A. Federal prisons,' says 'The Times,' New York, 'were described :is inhuman in a report submitted to the House of Representatives by Chairman Graham of the' Judiciary I Committee. 'These penitentiaries are seriously overcrowded; the total cell capacity being 3,778 whereas on April 1st., 192S, there were 7,598 men crowded within these walls. Two prisoners are in many cases quartered in cells which were built for one, and six and eight prisoners are crowded iiT cells for cells designed to hold four. The committee had been told that since 1925 the number of convictions in Federal courts had1 muliplied four fold.

OLD RENO PASSES SITE OF ONCE RICH MINE TO BECOME POULTRY FARM [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 23 August 1928

OLD RENO PASSES SITE OF ONCE RICH MINE TO BECOME POULTRY FARM i ? The mining villiag'e of Reno, a few miles from Gundagai, which about 30 years Ego was a hive of industry, is about to be turned into a. poultry farm. Reno, with its Prince of Wales mine, once had a population of thousands. In the ear-ly days it boomed, and was the scene of many an incident which brought Gundagai into prominence. There were cases of gold-stealing, and of illicit liquor trading; 'two-up' was a favorite pastime and the social lite oc the place was a great draw. A church wtis erected, clubs flour ished, and a hotel proved a gold mine. But, to-day Reno is like Gold smith's deserted village — the mines are falling in; the chux-ch and hotel are gone, and only'?, few peopls and some rabbits are there. Yesterday the final touch was put on the place, when, by a Laiva' Boi.'rd recommendation the mountain mining 'city' was converted into a nmiJH'!.' fomv.
