Labor-saving Machinery'for Farm and Station. In this ago of progress it is being con stantly proved that the man who makes his mark - who succeeds - is the man who takes advantago of every possible means of saving time, of economising labour, and studies how ho can invest his capital to tho best advantago. It is to tho man on tho land that labour - saving machinery iu of special value, and how to secure, to the best advantage, tho produce of tho soil should be the aim of every man on tho land.

DESIRABLE IMMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 July 1908
DESIRABLE IMMIGRANTS. No nmount of advertising of the re sources oC our State can equal in value the representations of Immigrants who haye succeedcd lu establishing them selves In comparative luxury. This fact is becoming more apparent every (lay, and Is reflected in the large num ber of persons nominated by recent arrivals l'or assisted passages from the Old Country to this State. Up to the end of May, the passages of no less than 300 noiuinees were arranged in this uinimor out of a tot?.! of 550. An Interesting feature of the nomination system is that It was recently taken advantage of by two young women who had come out here from England as domestic servants. Through the agency of the Intelligence Department, they nominated their Intended husbands for assisted passages, declaring that New South Wales offered splendid facilities for young men and women who were thrifty, industrious, and not afraid of work.
THE BEEKEFPE[?] BEES IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 July 1908
THE BEEKEFPEP BEES IN WINTER. Bees, like other insects, have their time of activity and Inactivity. They rest when vegetation comes to a standstill. When tho weather Is cold '-iho bees not . only occupy tho spaces between the combs, but also fill up the cells. It would not be a compact cluster if only the half-Inch spaces wore filled with bees and tho inch-thick combs stood empty. A cluster (states "Gleanings In Bee Culture") thus divided by spaces would fre.eze In a little while during ex treme, cold. Some assert that, at tho last moment, before death occurs, the bees crawl into the cells, when It la well-known that all anjmals, when dy«.. ing from cold or starvation, remain in the position they last occupied. As tho . combs would give room for twice as many, bees' as the space contains, these spaces would have to be entirely empty of bees, if they had crawled into cells at the last moment. On the other hand, If one examines a starved and chilled colony, not only will tho cells bo ...

VIAREGGIO. ITS DOCKYARD. THE SIREN SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 July 1908
VIAREGGIO. rrs DOCKYARD. THE BIREN SEA. Veron Leo writes In the "Westminster Gazette": There is an aesthetic virtue, more cer tainly even than o moral one, in the fact of not having too much; short commons stimulating the soul to squeeze out all the Interest and beauty which things themselves contain, and add whatever they lack from its own riches. I recog-. nlse that-this is the case (and am glad to recognise it) while tasting the modest charm of Vlaregglo after those days at Portoflno. That siren sea, those more than Greek hillsides and capes, have the splendor and aloofness of classic poetry, or rather of mythology enriched almost to eloyingness by Swinburne or D'An nunzlo; and one turns away with the "Too much! Too^ muchl''^ of Tannhauser at. the VenusbeTg. Instead of which. Slow much intimate pleasantness, and even amusement, "there I3 In these pale straight sands and pale sea barely breaking into white; In the wide streets of littlo flhut.-up houses; in the whitish colors of t...

THE STATE'S POSITION. A Talo o2 Progress. The moat casual observer of current affairs ennnot but be profoundly Im pressed by the extraordinary progress tlint is relleetod In nlinost every avenue of the State's activity.

TORTURING PRISONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 July 1908
TORTURING PRISONERS. .Down to tlio close of the roign of Queon Elizaboth, torturo had been ap plied to the investigation of nil kinds of crime, but after that time it was chiofly confined to Stato offences. The favourito instrument was tho dreadful rack, or break, traditionally said to havo boon introduced under Henry VI., by John, Duko of Exeter, Con stable of tho Tower, whence ifc was called tho Duko of Exeter's daughter. A milder punishment was inflicted by Skovington's gyves, which com pressed tho victim closely together, whilst tho rack distended his whole frame in tho most painful manner. In 1588 tho manacles wore introduced, and soon became tho most usual mode of torturo, but their preciso charaoter is not well understood. A variety of instruments of torturo are still shown in tho Tower, taken, it is said, out of tho Spanish Armada, but at all events admirably suited to tho gloomy dungeon wherein they appear, and in which half-starvation, and the horid cells called Little Eas...
OUR LADIES" COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 July 1908
OUR LADIES" COLUMN. (By Penelope.) In responding to the request for a "suitable" Indies1 letter, dealing- with current modes and fashions in dress, both morning* and evening, lingerie, children's costumes, up-to-date coiffur ing, etc., I will' endeavour, tMfaugh these columns, to give a weekly budget which I trust will be of real benefit to my readers. By a "seasonable" letter I mean one which will be of a service to those who realise that even in a "sow's" ear there arc possibilities of a "silken" purse, and, as such, is in tended rather as a guide, counsellor and friend to those who desire to ap pear smart and dainty with the means at their immediate disppsal, rather than an exponent of ultra-style which would only be suitable for a London "Derby" or a Melbourne "Cup" Day". * # * My readers arc doubtless well ac quainted with the ancient and esteem ed cookery book which has done family duty in the kitchen for many years. How many of us have, on receiving our modest order from the ...
HE DIDN'T GRUDGE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 July 1908
HE DIDN'T GltTJDGE IT. Thoro had been a serious railway ac cident. Ono by one the injured pas sengers were being removed from among the wreckage. One of these was an old farmer. Ho had been struck by the engine, and the crowd gathered sym pathetically about him. Suddenly the victim, who had been unconscious, opened his eyes. A sym pathetic silence met his gaze as ho slowly swept the circle and attempted to take in the situation. "Am I hurt?" he said, feebly. They told him that one leg would have to come off, but, fortunately, they; be lieved that otherwise ho was all right. For several moments ho studied tho remaining sound limb, and then turned to the surgeon. "Well," ho said, "it might have been worse. It is the one with tho rheuma tiz."
