EXPERIENCE WITH SILOS AND ENSILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 19 October 1898

EXPERIENCE WITH SILOS AND ENSILAGE. (By a Nova Scotian, in the ' Orange Judd Furmer.''- My first silo, built in 1888, cost more than was necessary, but the second one erected three years ago was put up at a little more than one half the cost of the first. This ailo hold 60 tons, and was built for a' cash outlay of £4. The lumber was cut mill for 12s Gd per 1000. 1 did nil the word of building, including the stone foundation wall and ooncentrat ing bottom of ailo. A good ailo can be built by any farmer possessed of an ordinory amount of mechinal ' gumption.' To hire the work done a silo would cost in the province, gen erally speaking, not more than 2s. per ton cupacity — that is, a 100-ton silo, would cost £10.

A FRONTIER HERO. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 19 October 1898

A FRONTIER HERO Private Purvis, of the Yorkshire Regiment, who received the Queen'ts medal for distinguished conduct in the field, is 26 years of age, and he spent over G years in India. 'Why he obtained the honour may be told in his own -words : — ' When -wa were retirino: thi-ouah the JLozaka PtiBs, from Bagh, we were tremendously harJ pressed. Those blessed Afridis harassed us like so many hornets The bullets went screaming over our heads, and pelted down upon us in a. way that makes it a wonder how any of us were left alive. Hundreds of the shots seemed to plough up the ground about our feet. A pretty hot time of it ? Hot ! It was simply — well, brimstone and sulphury. When as it wub as its worst, Private Matthews, who was next to me, got struck in the front part of the shoul der, aud fell with a deep moan.

High Enjoyment. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 19 October 1898

N High Enjoyment. One of t\[n ' Ihest and best enjoyments comes tliK-i ' '.jf what is done for others. .'This is beiieved in theoretically, but 'seldom practically. If a man has money he imagines that the way to enjoy it is either to keep and accumulate it or to spend It on personal gratification ; yet he misses the very finest of its de lights when he refuses to share it or its benefits with others. So with our time, our talents, and our thoughts— kept to ourselves, or used simply for our own delectation, they do not give us a tithe of the real enjoyment that they afford when we use them liberally for the bene fit of the family, or friends, or the com munity. No on who has once tasted the sweets of ministering successfully to the happiness of others will ever again relapse into a purely selfish use of its advantages.

THE AUSTRALIAN HORSE. ENCAMPMENT AT COOTA-' MUNDRA. The Gundagai contingent of the Aus tralian Horse, which left town on Thursday last for camp at Cootamun dra, arrived in camp, shortly after dark. At Coolac they were lunched by the ladies, a splendid spread being provided on -the green. Gundagai was the last continc-nnfc in. nnri. al though the Cootamundra boys had worked hard, all the tents had not been pitched or horse lines pegged out. But all set to work with a will, and shortly after 9 o'clock things were in apple-pie order, and the bugle for Bupper sounded. A hearty meal was made off the rough camp fure, and all turned in early. On Priday morning most of the soldiers were out of bed by 5 o'clock, and the usual routine of oamp, groom ing horses, etc., was gone tnrough be fore breakfast.

POLITICAL PIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 19 October 1898

POLITICAL PIPS. Mr. Barton will not take any active part in the Macleay Boyal Commis sion. Mr. Wise thinks that if Barton were in power now, Reid's fedtral enthusi asm would cool. Mr. O'Conor : I think too many old women have the franchise at present. Jf it could bo pointed out to me that the mothers of New South Wales aro asking for the franchise I would be in favour of thiB proposal. The fact that a lot of hysterical old women who have not had the happy fortune to be come mothers, who have got a kink in their nature by reason of the fact that they have not had that grand oppor tunity, are going about the country in this raving manner, is no argument, to my mind', for granting the franchise to them. When the mothers of New South Wales demand the franchise then I shall be williog to concede it to them. If I were a married man to morrow — and I hope the day may never come when I shall be— ^I would lay all Europe to a China apple that my wife would vote the Bame way that I did. T- can...

Pith and Point. A kind voice fs to the heart what light la to the eye. One of the beautiful traits of nobility. Is not to fly from poverty. ? He who is racked by superstition can never find peace of mind. In a truly loving heart either jealousy kills love or love kills jealousy. Tlie Arabic land of Egypt is said not to exceed 100,000 square miles. The world will pity you for what you lose ; never for what you lack. The first envelope ever made is In the possession of the British Museum. Talent, like beauty,, to be pardoned, must be obscure and unostentatious. Nearly all the glass eyes used In tho world are made In Thuriiigia, Germany. The ritualistic use of candles In churches was forbidden in England in 1548. The newest puncture,-proof band for use on cycles is made of stripes of whale bone inserted between the air-tube and the outer cover. Great joy, especially after a sudden change of circumstances, Is apt to be silent, arid dwells rather in the heart than on the tongue. Cinnamon...
