BUSH FIRES. ACTION BY THE PASTURES BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 13 December 1905
BUSH FIRES. I ACTION BY THE PASTURES BOARD. A deputation consisting of Messrs. Ritchie and Piggin, representing tbe Borough Council, Waited upon the Pastures Board on Tuesday to urge co-operation in taking steps to pre vent bush fires. The Mayor (Aid. T. Parkin) was unable to attend. Mr. A. A. Piggin, on behalf of the depu tation, explained that their attend ance was the outcome of a circular received from the Government with reference to taking action to prevent and cope with bush fires. The Council felt it was a matter that should be taken up by the Board and were pre pared to assist in any legitimate way. They felt they should be in a position to meet a call from the country for assistance. He considered it funny the country people did nothing in euch an important matter on their own account. Mr. Killen thought it was rather late to take any steps, the summer being half over. Mr. MoLellan said the majority of farmers were now insured and not inclined to go to- any further ex pens...

P. A. and H. Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 13 December 1905
P. A. and H. Notes. The most important work done by the Viticultural section of the De partment of Agriculture during tbe year has been in connection with phylloxera-resistant stocks, and Mr. Blunno points to the large distribu tion of these stocks— 6000 in 12 months — as evidence that growers row recognise that this is the only way in which immunity from the disease is to be purchased. In his annual report, Mr. Camp bell, Director of Agriculture, referring to the valuable object lessons afforded by the Government farms, contrasts the average wheat yield obtained on these — 18} bushels — with the aver age yield for the State— 81 bushels. At Wagga, the Government Farm average was 24i bushels, as againat the district average of 7 bushels. Mr. Campbell observes, very truly, that improved methods of farming entirely account for the higher yields, and there is no intrinsic reason why, by the adoption of like methods, the State's average should not be brought up to the same level. As a re...

Roxburgh, some years ago manager of the Bank of Austral asia in Corowa. visited here on Mon day for the purpose, of bidding farewell to his many old friends, prior to his departure for Launcestoa, whence he has been promoted.

An Important Change. SALE OF MR. T. PARKINS' BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 13 December 1905
An Important Change. BALE OF MB. T. PAEKXN61 BUSINESS. What may be looked upon as au epoch in the commercial history of Corowa \v.» recorded yesterday, in the transfer of Mr. T. Parkins' well known business to Mr. D. L. Tait. Negotiations have been conducted in this matter for the iast couple of weeks, but the sole was only finally completed yesterday, the purchaser arriying on Monday. The news of the change will no doubt be received with regret throughout the district where Mr. Parkin has become so well, and favorably known. The re gret will be tempered, however, with a feeling of pleasure, that after many years careful attention to business, that gentleman is in a position to take a well-earned rest. It is over 30 years ago since Mr. Parkin opened in Corowa aB a furniture maker, con tractor, &c. In those days the little store was practically in the bush, and Mr. Parkin worked singlehanded. The progress to the present large and busy premises is typical of the growth in impo...

Several notices had al ready been sent to Mr. Gorman without effect, and the Department required the information. The following correspondence was recei...

Cricket Notelets. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 13 December 1905
Cricket Notelets. [By B. E. Masks.] - The Corowa team excelled last Saturday with the bat, although the '' Veteran ' was not up to bis usual form. Probably a bard game of ten* nis just prior to starting, combined with the ill-balanoed heaviness of a newly-bound bat, had something to do with his slowness in wielding the willow, ipse dixit. However, the Fates befriended him, for twice in slips and once at leg he was missed before himself missing. « * is H. F. Bayliss played a free and useful innings, his timing of any to lee being particularly deadly. He is, however, rather too slow at backing up, or answering a call, and it is a pity that he and Hay were not longer together, for the partnership would speedily have taught him to stretch himself. '.- * * Hay made top score in splendid style, his defence being sound, hitting hard, and running a revelation. In faot, he and Henderson, who dis played something of his old form, were really good to watch — never missing a possible run. « * *...

THE HOSPITAL COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 13 December 1905
THE HOSPITAL COMMITTEE. The action of the Hospital Com mittee in deciding to call for tenders for certain work, in preference to accepting the price of any particular individual is so essentially correct that it is a matter for comment that any other course was contemplated for a moment. In another direc tion, however, it would be advis able for that body to bring their system into harmony with the busi ness principles governing the mau agement of most public bodies. Although handling considerable sums of money through the year, both receipts and expenditure under the circumstances being happily substantial, the committee have not deemed it necessary to appoint a Finance Committee. In conse quence, it is safe to say that no member of the committee— except- ing, perhaps, the chairman, and that only at the latest moment— has the slightest knowledge of the vari ous items and accounts passed for payment No doubt the accounts are scrutinised very carefully by the secretary, but if the en...
