Tiie Crow JPest. — 0 — ? [To the Editor of tbe MotiOMo Asoos.1 Sib, — In your last issue appears Mr. Pottie's reply to, a Condobolin pastora- . list re the crow pest. Mr. Pottie says to use acid, but he does not tell us what kind of acid to use. He further advises that two incisions be made round tbe animal's head. To do that you would have to cut all the wool' ? i_l_' ti. a' * _ 1 1 irom me neaa, tor sbeep at present are nearly full-fleeced. s I have had a ' ^ number of stud ewes killed by the crow pest, and have tried all sorts of [remedies, but without the slightest success, and you may be sure I have j not spared trouble nor expense iii the matter^ .'When a sheep gets down the crow picks the top eye out or makos it bleed, tbe poison from tbe crow's beak penetrating the sheep's head.

Ball at Cudal. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 29 August 1902
Ball at Cudal. t The annual ball in aid of tbe Molong Hospital was held in tbe School of Arts Hall, Cudal, on the 20th instant, and was a brilliant success,. something over £20 being realised. About 40 dancing couples were present, and the stage was crowded with spectators, in cluding visitors from Molong, Cargo, Manildra, Bowan Park and Amaroo. The hail was prettily deoorated with red and yellow streamers, flags and flowers. Messrs. P. Gavin (piano), B. Kidd (violin), and Carter (pornet) sup plied excellent music. Misses O. Gavin and £. Carman also played several extras. The refreshments, of a very choice character, were supplied by tbe ladies of the town and district. Mr. J.

Sunday Football. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 29 August 1902
- Sunday ' football. Football matches arq played on Sundays in some places in the Careoar . and Oowra districts. Some of the residents are trying-to pat . a stop to thi^ Sabbath desecration, and some cowardly miscreant has written to Mr. » J. F. Olasson, ofiBhiel, thrMtening to burn him oat if he proceeds farther in trying to stop Sunday football. ' Mr. Glasson has offered a . reward . of £10 for itiforination that will lead- ! to the conviction of the person who wrote the anonymous and intimidating threat, and it is to be hoped the reward will have the desired effect, so that the gailty party inay. receive what he is justly entitled to — solitary confinement at least.
Bowan Park. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 29 August 1902
[?] (Froma Correspondent.) A welcome showers have fallen, this way,;but of course the suppl^/=i9 nothing like the demand . The local creamery is still running,, bnt it can hardly be expected to pay its way these times. Like Bowan Park I see that Manildra Show has been abandoned lor ibis vear. It would have been impossible to hold or exhibit anything to be proud of this season. As for prize ploughing, that is out of the question. Hare drives are a weekly occurrence in this district, and some thousands have been destroyed. Kearney Bros, sent about 500 carcases to Sydney as the result of a drive on their estate. Mr. Murray had a flrive among the hills on Wednesday, and judging by the cannonading that went on for several days ' something like seven or eight hundred of the pest should have met an untimely end. Mr. Con. Bohringer, who met with an accident through his horse falling with him some time ago, has now quite recovered not much tbe worse except for tbe loss of one or two joints o...

Sheep and other stock are dying in numbers about this neighbourhood, and I suppose will continue to do so tor another week or two until the grass grows more freely. By the time those good seasons come round, there will be few holdings about Boomey even half-stocked, so severe have been tbe losses of ownera.
