The Advantages of Dairying. TABULATED BY THE LECTURER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 15 August 1902

The Advantages off Dairying. TABULATED BY THE LEOTUBEB j The advantages of dairying have been I tabulated by Mr. Potts as follows : (1) That it takes less fertility out I of the soil than any other form of agriculture, aud hence it is useful in i following a well regulated system of ' rotation. (2) That it can be combined readily with other foi ms of agriculture or horticulture. (3) The dairy provides in winter a quantity of stable manure in which the straw from the farm is profitably utilised. (4) The by-products from the cow, skim-milk, whey, and butter-milk, are * a source of income in raising pigs and calves. (5) Dairying gives constant and regular employment of a light charac ter to erny member of a farmer's family. (6) Dairying inculcates habits of punctuality, industry, cleanliness, and thrift on the farm. (7) Cream and butter are condensed products, and the cost of carriage, in. comparison with their value, is less than that of any other farm product. (8) That the demand for...

We were to leave by the 6-10 a.m. train, and with no small amount of difficulty in rising so outrageously early, we managed to reach the station a few minutes prior to the train starting. We took tickets for Nagoya, which is a ten and a half hours' journey. The scenery was really enchanting never lacking in charm and novelty. After leaving the confines of the city it was really a poem in greens. Endless rice fields flanked the line on either side with their mathemati cally planted rice stalks, alternated here and there with green shoots waiting to be transplanted. Farmers and peasants' humpies and cottages, with the artistically arranged thatched ...

[?] [?] HARRY MORANT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 15 August 1902

HARRY MORANT. _ Major R. W. Lenehan, late Officer Commanding the Bushveldt Car- bineers, gave a lecture in the School   of Arts, Windsor, on Wednesday night, entitled as above. There was a very poor "house "—not more than     seventy. "Didn't pay ex'es!" Even the announcement that the lecturer would give "The Story of Harry Morant ('The Breaker')"—who was so well known in Windsor and in the Hawkesbury district—failed to act as the draw that was anticipated of it. Major Lenehan had 26 months' experience in South Africa. He came prominently before the public eye in     connection with the scandal over the affair for which Morant was shot. His account of this, together with his other experiences and his comments, made up the matter for Wednesday night's lecture. Literally speaking, however, it was not a lecture, but a reading. Given as a learnt-off lecture, it would not have been too bad, but, as it was, the whole thing w...
