Sarah Bernhardt. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 21 January 1901

' -famfa^Bei nliaiilt. ? - Leaving Paris for the United States (writes the 'Sketch' correspondent in the 'Gay City'), Sarah Bernhardt had such a send off as no one had before who was not the head of the states. Her suite of rooms on., the deck of the Aquitanie, which left Havre on the 13th was a perfect dream. It comprised a bedroom, maid's-room, din ing room, and boudoir, the, ceil ing and walls draped for the occasion in rose silk, festooned with Parma violets. Her per sonal suite on the road consists of five domestics, a masseuse, and a secretary. She spends while on the road, she has re cently told someone, 500 francs a day, although her travelling expences are paid, and she is allowed by her manager 2-, 000 francs a week for hotel bills. These are royal figures. It will interest the ladies to know further, that Jie carries 50 trunks, which contain, accord ing to a French reporter, 25 stage costumes, 35 street, dinner, and evening toiletes and peignoirs, 120 pairs of shoes, 16 h...

THE SPEECH MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 21 January 1901

THE SPEECH MAKING. The number of spectator at the Council Chambers where the reception proper took place, must have been con siderably over 1000. The heartiness ' of the* crowd during the different speeches of welcome, clearly demon strated a- full endorsement of all that wassaid. ^ The Mayor, Mr. G. A. Miller, who received a very flattering reception said : — Ladies and gentlemen and' fel- low citizens, we are justly proud of our representatives who left Hay and dis trict to fight for the glorious-cause of .liberty and justice, and we are prouder still to have this opportunity of wel coming back to Hay once more, , Troopers O'Brien and Wood. Three of our representatives have returned to us ; three will return no mom. I refer to Troopers Robertson, Aberline, and Clancy. There are others still away in South Africa, fighting for tho honor of the Empire. Since our wel come to Trooper Kilgour, news has reached us of the death of Trooper Robertson.

SUMMARY OF HIS REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 21 January 1901

SUMMARY OF HIS REMARKS. Mr Barton declared that the Min istry bsgan without any bargains, and without any personal compact as to appointments. Their first task was to prepare for the elections. Referring to the federal capital, Mr Barton urged that it was desirable that the Federal Parliament should be master in its own house. The 100 mile area from Sydney was no fault of his. The Commonwealth would ac-i quire the land within the area as property, and not as mere territory. ?That land would not be sold, but would be leased for long terms, with re-appraisements of the rent from time to time. No fancy prices would be paid, and the Government would not play into the hands of speculators. Regarding the public service, all departments would be taken over as soon as possible, and Customs Regular tions, Postal and Defence bills would be prepared with despatch. A promise was made that at the earliest op portunity the public service would be regulated with regard to appointments and promotio...

From Various Sources. The famous Lieutenant Hob son, who commanded the collier Merrimac, which he sank in tha entrance to Santi ago Harbour under the fire of the forts in an attempt to bottle up Cerveras fleet, was repor ted, when the English mail left, to be dying from typhoid fever in the Presbyterian Hos pital in New York. Admiral Cervera sent the following telegram to the gallant officer through a third party : — ' I am greatly afflicted to learn of the valiant Hobson's state of health. I am praying God to restore him to health, and if lie dies to receive him into His Paradise. — Ad 111 iral Cervera. The Rev. Robert M'Clelland lion, chaplain 1st Cameron Highlanders, writes to the 'Times' : — I have just re ceived from a man signing him self ' W. T.

Ax Unparalleled Demonstration. **Ncver before in tbe annals of Hay has there been such a demonstration of popular feeliug as that elicited 011 Saturday evening when Troopers M. .^O'Brien and: G. Wood arrived iu Hay from the seat of war in South Africa. Australia, even in its. divided, state, has been continually making history, and in almost every walk of life we have invariabty held our own ; but as soldiers we were unknown. However, there came a time when the Mother Country needed help, aud among tlie first of her dependencies to come to her side .was the Australian colonies. When the call for volunteers for active . service rang through the land, 110 in land tow n responded more nobly than Hay did, and opiong thos 2 who left home aud relatives to uphold the 'dear old flag ' were the two soldiers who were the recipients of such a royal wel come on Saturday evening. .

As opalised fish, 4 ft. long, was unearthed in soft ground only 6ft. below the .surface, on one of the blocks at White Cliffs last week. It was a perfect specimen, and from a naturalists point of view, even as a geological specimen it I would be of great value. Un fortunately for the finder he broke it up and distributed it among his friends, or he could have got a good price for it. Philatelists have eagerly ac cepted the opportunity offered by the Victorian Postal depart men t of purchasing complete sets of Victorian stamps for X6.

The Planet Mars. REMARKABLE PHENOMENON [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 21 January 1901

The Planet Mars. REMARKABLE PHENO'1 1 1 rv A remarkable phenomenon has been observed in the planet Mars by' Mr Percival Lowell, the American as tronomer, at his observatorv iu Mexico. It was a shaft of light pro jected from tbe planet, which lasted an hour and ten minutes. T M r t.hp VW/ii-ian vernment astronomer, on being asked for his views on the subject, said that Mr Lowell and his staff of observers had done a great deal of good astro nomical work, and had particularly added to the sum of knowledge of the planet Mars. His book on Mars was really a splendid work, containing much valuable information, though, doubtless, a good deal of its charm was due to the many theories and hyotheses — some of them very far-fetched — which it contained. The phenomenon now recorded was of a most extraordi nary character, and, in the absence of some details, it was almost impossible to offer a comment on it. Mars, like the moon, was subject to phases. At certain points the part nearer the ob ser...

Evils op Smoking. — The packinghouse of Swift and Co. will not employ cigarette smokers. The 'National Pro visioner' says about this: — 'This is the second large cor- -? ;? poration in this country which j has put its ban upon the mind- '4; , eating cigarette. The first to i exclude this poison and its 1 user was a large Southern railway company. The deci j sion of the big packinghouse firm above, doing 160,000,000 I dollars worth of business a year is, doubtless the forerunner of others who will follow. The cigarette is only another form of done. It unfits a man or boy mentally and physically for honest work. Besides, the habit of smoking cigarettes is a filthy one. It produces slobclies, cranks and degene erates. In prohibiting the employment of cigarette smok ers upon its staff or in its force, Swift and Co. will earn the grat:tude of thousands of wives and mothers, and set a standard for meritorious boys and men who are abstemious that they might be stronger morally, mentally an...

Scoured Fleece Competition. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 21 January 1901

Scourctl Fleece Competition. Mr Thos. Shaw, Wooriwyrite, writes to the ' Australasian ' : — ' In your issue of the 5th inst. you give the re sult of the Wagga Wagga Sheep Test Prize, or, as you term it, ' Wagga Scoured Fleece Competition.' Not knowing . the various flocks about Wagga, this scouring competition con veyed to me no particular lesson in sheepbreeding, but this season I am informed of the breeds of the com peting sheep, and find there is a lesson in sheep-breeding in this Wagga con test worthy to be known to all sheep breeders and to all writers on the sub ject of raising the most profitable sheep. The winning flock is that of Yabtree Estate. Hiiu'lno-ni «-i.:-i, t am informed, is a direct descendant of the old Havilah flock. This flock has besn kept pure from Vermont blood. The second prize is that of the ex ecutors of the late Thomas Millear. This flock, as I understand, has had no Vermont cross for the last thirty years.

Colonials and Volunteers. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 21 January 1901

Colonials and Volunteers. ' A Retired Colonel ' writes as follows to the ' Free Lance '. : — ' I should very much like to know how many of the colonials and volunteers who have recently been given commis sions are in a position to support them. Even in a line regiment a man must have at least £200 a year of his own ; J while in the cavalry £500 is barely I enough. You simply cannot exist on less. Now, I am willing to wager that not one-half of these j'oungsters who have been pitchforked into com missions have a penny beyond their pay- I myself know of half-a-dozen who have not, and two of them are in the cavalry. There lias been some talk, I know, of increasing the pay of officers, but it is absolut ;Iy certain that it will never be big enough for a man to live on. Why not ? Because the Government can get twice as many men as it wants under the present system. Does it get the best men? Well, ask the foreign attaches who hive been with the army in South Africa.

Grass Fire Extinguisher. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 21 January 1901

Grtfss Fire tixiiiijHushcr. The invention of Mr J. H. Fowler, of Bringagee Station, Murrumbidgee River is described as follows : — ' A 100-gallon iron tank is mounted on a light spring-cart drawn by one horse. To this tank is attached a No. 2 semi-rotary Paragon pump, to which Mr Fowler has added an air chamber 15in. long by 2Mn. diameter. This, with the addition of a piece of hose 1 5ft. to 20ft. long, having a nozzle at tlie end, completes the machinery. The nozzle is so arranged that it can be used as a spray or jet. The modus operandi is : — One man drives the horse and works the pump, while a second walks in front, carrying the hose and directing a spray of water on the burniug grass. Another cart, or possibly two carts, may be employed to carry water wherewith to replenish the tank from which the water is pumped. One or two beaters follow the fire-extinguishers, and put out any sparks that may be missed, or grass which, though smouldering, may again be fanned into a blaze. A s...

National Production. A GREAT ECONOMIC TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 21 January 1901

National Production. A GREAT ECONOMIC TRUTH. ' Tbe more a nation produces the richer it is ; and the less it produces the poorer it is.' This is the rule which is gravely held to confute low-tariff and revenue tariff men. And it is their own. It is one which they insist ought always to be borne in mind, and which, they complain, the high-tariff advocate continually overlook. The total pro duction is the home trade and foreign trade added together. Mr. Coghlan gives the total production for Aus tralia — the total of all industries for tbe six states of the Commonwealth — for the year 1899 at £112,273,000. Omitting Western Australia, which is in an abnormal condition, the return per head is as follows. Per Head.
