Roman Catholic Ball. The annual ball in connection with tho Catholic Oliiirch was held in tho Centen nial .hall on Tuesday night and proved an unqualified success 'iii every respect.

COWRA-GREGEA LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902

OOWRA-GREGRA LINE. j Sir, — The u Cowra Guardian,' under ?tfhe above heading publithes an ' in spired ' article from the ' Orange Xieader,' and the ' Guardian ' of course puts it forth as fact. I hove particular ly noted that the Cowra news papers always aro pleased to publish anything that reads- unfavorable to the prospnets of our railway, bat never yet have either of them published a single item which oould be considered favorable. Now, gome of the people here to 'whom rail ?connection would be of incalculable ben efit, support Cowra in all ways ; bank their monay there, send their produce -there, and in many other ways build up the business of Cowra. Now I say to all these — ' What rail business you have to do, do it at Woodstock, and let Cowra, severely alone. Nothing would bring the Cowraites to a proper feeling for you sooner than touching their pookets. This inspired article is contrary to fact. Tucker Ally lias not delayed the survey, 'but traversing to get as near as possi...

Cowra-Gregra Line. A FEW OPINIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902

Cawra-Gregra Line. A PEW OPINIONS. j This Jitve which we did our best to divert from its junction with the Orange Forbes line at Gregra to a junction near Orange will, it has been decided, junc tion at Gregra and we gracefully bow to the inevitable ; but we must protest against the course it is proposed the line shall take near Gregra. The official* engaged surveying the line havo been in 1 Tucker Valley ' for some considerable time past trying to find a satisfactory Toute from Gregra and Cudal through that distinguished locality. The course is definitely mapped out to Cudal from Gregra and from there the trouble commences. By going in the direction the surveyors havo — through Tncker ally (when they get through) and pass Barrigan, leaving the fertile valley of Bowan Park away to the left. This is a decided injustice to the resi dents of Bowan and Cargo apart from being detrimental to the interests of the projected railway. It just looks as if the surveyors had gone out of their way...

A TIGER STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902

A TIGER STORY. One morning we were assembled in the guardroom in an Indian mountain station and had juet finished the reports, when the native sentry sent in word that he wished to see me. Going out, the man said that he had heard low growls pro ceeding from under the cliff, on the edge of which the houBe was built. Listening attentively for a few minutes, I distinctly nearu mem, out. tne difficulty was to get a sight of the animal, whatever it was. The precipice jutted out by itself like a promontory, and went down perpendicu larly for some 30 feet, where there was a rocky ledge which sloped down to the bottom of the valley, nearly 2,000 feet below. Directing two sepoys who had joined me to catch hold of my legs, I wriggled to the ailna fltiil naanzxl am* Qn«U a UUU WUbU a GlgUb greeted my eyes, for, stretched at full length on the rock, lay a magnificent tigress, the beautiful black and gold etripea of her skin glistening in the sun light like a satin druss.

Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ARTICLES. TOMATO VINES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902

Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ARTICLES. TOMATO VINES. ^EXPERIMENTS were made to de jlivit ^®rm'ne *bether tomatoes should be allowed to grow naturally, be trained to a four feet stake, or mulched with four incheB of strawy manure about the time the fruit begins to set. The results of the teBts show that the largest yield was from the mulched vines, tho next from the vines that were staked, and the smallest from those which were not trained. This portion not trained also had the largest quantity of rotted fruit, while the staked vines, which ranked third in point of yield, had much the smallest amount of decayed fruit. Planting in hills did not give any striking results. When tomato plants aro watered ex cessively, and there is insufficiency of bright, Bunny weather, so that the watery matter iB not given off by transpiration, then the plants are liable to contract the disease known as dropsy ; the plants assume a somewhat crinkled appearauee, and yellowish and more or less puffed out.

THE UNEMPLOYED. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902

THE UNEMPLOYED. (To the Editor.) Sir, — A. standing menace to our work- - ing nieu in Australia to-day is the large number of unemployed who are hanging about all the cities aud towns ; these men are always ready aud waiting to take the place of those who have billets, even at a lower rate of pay. Now, surely we must re cognise that so tar no legislation lias dealt with this increasing evil, although all sorts of remedies have been tried. Tills winter thore will be thousands want ing work, and these are added to daily as firms, through the drought, are dismiss ing hands. It is more than likely the Government will have to serve out rations to keep men from starving. Men will say : Why not start Government work ? Well, Government works require a lot- of money, and with a failing revenue aud a difficulty of getting more loans, this is a bad remedy ; besides, at the best this is no permanent cure for the evil. 'With a staguant population as we have, we can not go ou with public works fo...

RAISING ONIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902

RAISING ONIONS. The ideal soil for (trowing onions is a deep rich loam with sufficient sand in its composition to be felt by the hand rather than detected by the eye. Such land, under proper treatment, ripens down a hard Btyle of onions, if the seed was raised from good stock, and one having a bright straw colour, as is tho case with all crops that require muoh hoe and hand work. The freer the land ie from stones tiiu uoirtjor j an iiuaii buuw bueiutteivce uu the surface Bhould be removed if possible before planting. Hand weeding is the great itom of cost m raising onions on a large scale, for which reason very weedy land should be avoided aB far as possible, aud in hoeing slide hoes sheuld be used which cut the closest to the growing crop. The first hand weeding is very often put off too late until the weeds can be seen in considerable quantities, whereas it Bhoul 1 begin soon attar the onions aro above the ground, when the slightest rubbing of the surface will destroy the young we...

Several members with whom I hold conversation after Mr. Basset's motion was earned can vouch for the fact that I considered that every member eligible to vote should have notice of! motion seat him in full either 7 or 14; days prior to such notice being dealt with.

Like nearly tall costumes in the best French taste it ia very simple whilst at the came time most elegant. There must always be a great diversity of taste about a wedding dreBs. Some declare that it oannot for so joyous an occasion bs too splendid is material or thinking ohiefly of the solemnity of the event prefer a certain simplicity of attire. There is also another, and perhaps rather severely practical view of the question, namely, ixt what use can the dress be put afterwards P In my humble opinion there is something pitiful, and a little ridiculous to see a newly-married girl appear every where at dinner parties and receptions in her bridal costume. Therefore in select ing a material for a wedding garment remember to choose something that can be entirely serviceable afterwards, ar ranged...

Sketcher. THE FIRST STEAMER TO CROSS THE ATLANTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902

Sketcher. THE FIRST STEAMER TO CROSS THE ATLANTIC. SCN many quarters the idea seems still dip to prevail— and we gave expression ralg to it quite recently in an article on ' Some Early Steamships ' — that the first steamer to cross the Atlantio was the ' Savannah.' whioh in 1819 made the voyage from tho port of the same name in Georgia to Liverpool in twenty- five days. The ' Savannah,' however, waB not a steamship, and was under sail more than two-tbirds of the way aoross. She was a full-rigged packet-ship, and had on deck a small steam engine, by means of which motion was given to the oraft in smooth water when the wind failed. The log is full of such entries as : * At 8 a.m. tacked ship to the westward ' Took in the mizzen and foretopgallant sails ;' ' Got the steam up, and it came on to f ~1. ? ? . ? (.« „1„„_ 4-1,0 clinkers out of the furnace ;' ' Started wheels'' and so on. In 1838 the 'Sirius' and the 'Great Western' successfully made the journey from England to Ameriaa ; but...
