Woman's Column. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 6 December 1905
Woman's Column. Knife Polish. — Rubbing knives upon ground charcoal will give them a very brilliant polish. Be- careful of your measurements in all cooking, and the result will be very much more satisfactory. When boiling greens put a small piece of bread in the water; this prevents any smell going through the house. Ferns. — Never let your fern stand in water, nor in a draught. It should always be kept moist, but not over watered. Old bottles that have become very dirty can be cleansed by rinsing them in diluted spirits of salts, then in olean water. When chopping suet sprinkle it With a little ground rice ; it will then chop quite easily, and will not stiok to the knife. The Greek robe is coming again into favor as evening dress for ladies. What other costume is so simple, so healthy, and so beautiful ? Dressmaking Hint. — To finish off a seam neatly and firmly, turn the work round and work back a, short way so that tho Btitches will be double. Parsley should not be kept in water,...

Important Land Bill. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 6 December 1905
Important Land Bill. The State Cabinet hod the new Land Bill under consideration last week. Mr. Asbtou gave notice of the measure on Thursday, and it will probably be introduced to-day.

OVERTON. THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 6 December 1905
OVEETON. THE WEATHER. On Saturday night eighteen points of rain fell, which was followed by a bitterly cold wind from the south-west. There is now every appearance of more rain which, if it comes, will be a serious hindrance to haymaking operations. THE HARVEST. Some fairly good yields ore ex pected in this locality, the majority of farmers anticipating a 4-bag aver age. I notice some very fine pad docks of wheat on Melton Grove and Piney Park estates, some of which should easily reach 24 bushels per acre. A RUNAWAY TEAM. A bolt which might have termi nated with fatal results occurred at Piney Park last week. A man named Conuors was engaged in cm-ting hay, when the horses took fright and bolted. Connors was thrown from the load with a sud den start, and narrowly escaped heiug run over by the waggon. The horses were eventually stopped near the homestead without any serious damage being done.

Bitchie moved that the Minister for Works be aBked to call for alternate tenders for the river scheme and the Deep Lead in con nection with the water supply. They did not know what the river drift would be like, while, they knew the Deep Lead wai Spte'ndid water. It only meant a few additional pipes; Aid.' Gardner seconded the motion as they would .then know where they were. As they had an expendi ture of eight or nine thousand pounds before them they should be deliberate in the matter. The Mayor pointed out that the Engineer reported dead against the Deep Lead. In the ensuing discussion Aid. Chivell stated it was not too certain that the Deep Lead water waB too good. He had the assurance of practical miners that it would not keep good 24 hours in a water-bag, and that a green slime appeared on it in a tank. It returned to its clear condition in 48 hours, but i...

Ladies Bath. At the Council meeting on Tuesday night the Works Committee reported against the proposed Ladies Bath, as the water would le laid on by next Summer. Aid.

He movod that the matter be reported upon by a special sub-committee. They simply wanted a bath house and some little ac comodation. Aid. Bitchie seconded the motion pro forma. The Mayor said they must have someone to look after the baths. Aid. Gardner could not see any harm in getting a report from a sub-committee as to the expenses &c. A desultory conversation ensued.

These figures afford food for reflection. For some considerable time past the general tone of the ring has been despondent and pessimistic. We have been tola that the game is played out, and that backers have the best of it. It may very reasonably be asked i Is that why the ring is prepared to pay £9,460 per annum for the privilege of betting on only one course, upon which racing extends only 1G days in the year ? » ? ?

MULWALA FOREST RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 9 December 1905
MULWALA FOEEST EESEEVE. Commenting on the decision of the Savernake Farmers and Settlers' Association to oppose the throwing open of the Mulwala Forest Re serve, the Yarrawouga 'Chronicle' writes inter alia :— Now, the whole question resolves it self into a nutshell. If this reserve is not suitable for settlement And it a -valu- able limber area jt should' be reserved for the sake of the timber ; but if it could be turned to proGtable account by settle ment, and there are experienced but landless people anxious to make a home upon it, their claims altogether outweigh any considerations as to the timber. The acceptance of such a' ;view means that iu the course of a very short time there will be no timber reserves left in the State, or for that matter any reserves at all. For it is an undeniable fact that there are ' experienced, but landless, people anxious to make a home' there or elsewhere. And it is also a fact— a shameful fact — that there are thousands of acres of suitable land ...

P. A. and M. Notes; Botflies ate becoming numerous around Bowral. A couple of residents have lost horses wllose deaths are attributed to tile pest: . The devastating St. John's wOrt was imported by a German woman, in Bright^ Victoria, long ago, for its purely imaginary medicinal qualities, From her bit of a garden it gradually «preadi and is a most terrifio nuisance, comparable to phylloxera. The St. John's wort has destroyed whole gardens and orchards, its roots being voracious, suckers, and deadly to everything around. It is getting dangerously thick about Rutherglen, and local land-owners can't be too careful in eradicating it on first ap pearance. A Forbes telegram states : — Stock, especially young sheep, are experienc ing a very bad time from grass Beed. Travelling sheep are the worst suffer ers.
