Goolagong. (From our own Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 February 1911
Goolagong. (From our own Correspondent). Mr. and Mrs. William McGrath, of Newtown, in the vicinity of our town- ship, celebrated their golden wedding on Wednesday, 17th instant, at the local public hall, a very large gathering of friends assembling on the occasion to tender the venerable couple their felici- tations. The function took the form of a really sumptuous repast which had been prepared and provided by the residents of the place. At the appointed hour the aged guests were escorted to the hall by two very old residents and assigned the posts of honour nest the chairman (Mr. Fred. McInness) at the first table, and seated at the same table were three generations of descendants of the very worthy guests. Mr. M. J. Dwyer proposed the health of Mr. and Mrs. McGrath in happy terms. Mr. McGrath, whose rising was the signal for prolonged applause, thanked &nbsp; the company for the heartiness with which they had been honoured, and for the very handsome manner in which they h...
QUEEN AS A WOMAN. PICTURE OF HER DAILY LIFE. HOME IDEALS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
QUEEN AS A WOMAN. PICTURE OF HER DAILY LIFE. HOME IDEALS. "The'Queen of England" is the title ji of an article in the "North American ' Review," by Sir Clement Kinloch ? Cooke, M.P. From, the time of her Majesty's ' birth until her marriage her life was just that of the fairly well-to-do Eng lish girl; hardly that of the modern English girl, perhaps, but nearer the old-fashioned ideal, the loss of which many parents' deplore. This was her mother's plan: "A child," she said, "has quite enough to do to learn obedience and attend to her lessons and to grow without many parties and late hours which take the freshness of childhood . away and the brightness and beauty from girlhood-and then children be come intolerable. There are too many grown-up children in, the pres ent day." The article tells how the Queen's many high qualities were developed her interest in charity by the fre quent visits made in her mother's company to the poor around her Richmond home at White Lodge; her religious ...
MRS JULIA WARD HOWE'S RETHOSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
MRS .TUIJTA WA11D HOWE'S KETHOSPECT. Of the prose utterances of the late Mrs Julia Ward, Howe, two in . par ticular (says the " Westminster Ga zette") deserve permanent record. One was her message to her friends on her SSth birthday. " The world," she ?wrote, " grows better, and not worse; but it does not grow bptter every where all the time." Another notable saying was her defence of the interest she took in household duties. "The experience of years has enabled me to blend domestic and literary pursuits not Inharmoniously, and, far from railing at tho common duties of life, I have learned to believe that such cares and responsibilites are a great support to women, and are able to counter-balance most advantageously the extravagance of a poetical tem perament." This remark is obviously the more significant in view of Mrs Howe's earnest support of so many movements for enlarging tho sphere , of women.

COUNTESS AND SON. KILLED BY TRAIN. CAR IN FRAGMENTS. The Comtesse Antoine de Nicolal an-l her son, Comte Christian de Nicolai, with the driver of their motor-car, were killed in a terrible level-crossing acci dent near Le Mans while driving home at night from the chateau of. the Comte rle Beaumont at Beauchamps (said "Lloyd's News" on December 11).

It is but /our briof years since 130 fanners participated in the subdivisional sale of Myall Creek Estate, with which the namo of Mr. Ashton, then Minis ter for L-ands, remains pleasantly asso-. ciated; already their brightest nntici-:. pations have been realised, and they now represent 130 owners of 130 com fortable, independent, wealth-producing homos.

Ho can be shown farms from which 40 bushels of wheat per aero have been averaged right through, and if he pos sesses a mind_ for dairy-farming, for which Myall soil is specially adapted, he can learn facts that will make his teeth water. On one dairy farm, for one month, 68 cows netted £77 lis. 6d., while an adjoining farmer made £21 5s. 3d. from 17 cows for the same period!

HOMELY FARE. THE FRUITS OF EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
. ' -I HOMELY FAKE. THE FRUITS OF EXPERIENCE. Many Dungs go to the making of a gcotl oook besides a handy book or set o£ recipes. For one thing there is a sort of intuition that comes with experience, and that cannot be acquired without experience. It will enable the cook to judge by sight and smell and by a dozen subtle, indications when, for in stance, the fullest time limit mentioned in the recipe should be followed or even exceeded, or when the shortest time should bo adhered to. Constant and sympathetic attention is the road by which this intuition is to be gained. Then, too, there is the deft hand. This, like other forms of skill is to be acquired by perseverance. The light hand in rolling pastry, the steady hand in tossing a pancake, the artistic touch that is required for a meringue, the dainty handling necessary for cakes are each in their way essential to the com plete cook. So much for manual skill. Another set of qualities are those which include taste In the decoration ...
Seasonable Notes. "BLACK OATS." [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
j Seasonable Notes. ; (By Geo.- L. Sutton Wheat Experiment alist.) ", "BLACK OATS," It is now recognised, that it is difficult. ' if not impossible to destroy the vitality of of "black oat" seed that is in the : ground. As far as is possible, it is therefore advisable to use every precau- . tion to ensure that it is not knowningly. introduced to ground that is free from . it It is impossible to prevent its intro- j duction by wind and other natural > means, but it is possible to prevent its introduction with the seed when it is sewn. There are now on the market, some machines, of the type, which effect, ually separate the black oat from wheat . with which it may be mixed. Wheat grain which has "black oats" mixed with it should therefore be passed through one of those machines before it is used for seed. To omit doing so is obviously and extremely bad practice. Though it is so difficult to destroy the seed of the "hlack oat" it is easy to destroy the "black oat" plant. The foundat...

Farming Revolutionised. THE LABOUR PROBLEM SOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
Farming Revolu tionised. THE LABOUR PROBLEM SOLVED, Following extract from tho Numurkah " Leader " concerning the conducting of ploughing and harvesting''by means of a comparrtively light oil tractor should be of interest to those engaged in husbandry: - Some time back we mentioned that Mr. E. A. Neeld had purchased an Imperial Oil Tractor, the makers being Messrs. M'Donald & C., of Melbourne. Just previous to the harvest starting, an engineer from the firm, at the request of Mr. Neeld, came up and fixed the necessary saveguards to allow of the tractor being used in the harvest field. A visit to the farm at the present time will find the engine hauling a 6 feet McKay Harvester and doing splendid work. Going at the rate of 3 to 3£ miles per hour it is easily calculated the amount of crop that can be harvested in a day. This season, Mr. Neeld, feeling that he was ex perimenting, has been satisfied to use a harvester of ordinary size, but now that he has found that the traction...
ANGLO-AMERICAN WEDDING. IRISH PEER'S ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
ANGLO-AMERICAN" WEDDING. IRISH PEER'S ROMANCE. The announcement of the engagement of Lord Decies and Miss Vivien Gould, with biographies and photographs of the couple, also illustrations of the Goulds' magnificent country estate, Georgian Court, New Jersey, occupy the chief space to-day in the Heading American newspapers (cabled the New York correspondent of the "Daily Tele graph" on December 15). "It is the only big Anglo-American romance of the season," feays one journal, "and sets at rest the oft-repeated statement that Mr George Gould's' daughters had made up their minds never to marry outside tihe United States." As usual, there is a little sprightly comment about the de sirability of taxing the dowries of American heiresses when they marry a.broa.d, but, as X have indicated al-. ready in The "Daily Telegraph," the various wild legislative proposals to this effect which have been made in differ ent;; states have always been tabooed. Lord Decies' brother, the Hon. Robert Beresfo...
