TALE OF A FOX. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 14 June 1904
TALE OF A FOX. Tux following is from the Tumut" Times" -"A resident of Wynangle (we don't give his name, so that he will escape the gibes of. sceptics) last week shot a fox, and to enable him to get the bonus allowved for such by the Pastures Board he proceeded at once to skin the animal (believing, of course that it was dead). When he had got the pelt removed from the whole of the body excepting the head Reynard j amped up gave a couple of yelps, and started to run away, but a well aimed blow. from a waddy near by brought the fqx hors do combat again. It was thought best on the part of the destroyer to do that, for if he had let the animal run off with the skin hanging on by the ears it may have been the means of frightening away the whole of the foxes of that neigh bourhood; or we might have been supplied with exciting pars. from residents giving a wonderful description of a new kind of animal that had developed in the Wyangle forest.

Although po!itical opponents, many of us are personal friends with Sir John, and as such we feel naturally a deeper regret at hise ill healthe Tr strain of politics is very severe upon the strongest of pi, and when a man has served twenty five years in the atmosphere of the Assembly he has had just about as much as the greedicetman for political fame ever desired, Sir John See has been a staunch party man, a good fighter and has, I think, played a personally hon ourable part in his political career.

DRINK AND CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 14 June 1904
DRINK AND CRIME. AT the Quarter Sessions at Albury last Friday, there were no cases for trial, and the deputy sheriff presented his Honor Judge Murray wish a pair of white gloves. His Honor, in reply, congratulated the district on this evidence of its freedom from serious crime. Perhaps it was too much to expect that the day would come when there would be no work for the criminal courts, and that they would cease to be necessary on account of the-stoppage of crime, yet it seemed to him there was a way in which that might be brought about. He was convinced that if the State stopped the sale of alcoholic liquor there would soon be very little for the crim. inal ctarts to do. He spoke from many years' experience, and from the experience of others, too, when be said that drink was the source of nearly all crime in the community, or at least of really serious crime. His Honor also paid a high tribute to the work of the Salvation Army. It must be freely and fairly recognised that no class...

COB MAIZE FOR FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 14 June 1904
COB MAIZE FOR FODDER. Faoxo experiments that have been systems' i cally carried out at several experimentsl stations, it would seem that where farmers m ke a practice of feeding ground corn it would be to their advantage to grind the whole ear, thereby utilising to excellent advantage what would otherwise constitute a waste product. The importance of corn and cob meal has not been sufficiently re. cognised in the past. With mree intensive methods of farming, we hope to see it occupy the place among stock foods which it rightly deserves. That it has a food value far beyond the possibilitles indicated by its chemical analysis has been amply proved. There can be no question but that the value of the cob lies not within. itself, but rather in its effect upon the corn fed in conjunction with it. Pure corn-meal is a heavy mass' which tends to pack in the stomach of the animsl, and hence prevent the proper action of the digestive juices. The ground cob has the effect'of loosening and tight...

Military Ranks. (Cont. ibuted) Qurta a controvelsy has arisen through ti: ,e Poatma ter-General in Victoria forbidding the post office officials utilising their mili tary ranks during their cival capacit', and the various captains, colonels, lieutenants, and sergeants who are employed in the postal note and stamp selling dep !rttaent are somewhat dismayed at only being " captained and coloneled" when arrayed in their fine feathers and gay gory military trappings, engaged in a bloodless battle with the aid of blank cartridge. The P.M. G. is to be commended for his action as it is ridiculous for volunteer officers to stand on their military dignity when engaged in their civil capacity, whether it is a fling postage stamps or selling calico by the yard over another counter. Since the Boer war, military ranks have become as common in Australia as Justices of the Peace, and at the present rate cf conferring ranks in the Australian Military Service, we shall soon be on _a par with America...

WITH WHICH ARE INOORPORATED Queanbeyan Times, Bungendore Mirror & Captain's Flat Miner. TUESDAY, JUNE 14, 1904. The Farmer at Dubbo. IT is hardly to be wondered at that the Con ference of the Farmers and Settlers' Associ ation at Dubbo should have rather fully discussed the vital problem of land tenure; nor is it remarkable that the experienced practical men taking part in the debate should have pronounced themselves, in the main, as being opposed to the pernicious leasehold selection which has proved so de trimental to the improvement and develop. ment of many good districts in New South Wales. But it is mostly in the drier local ities where the inimical results of making selectors nothing more than' crown tenants are apparent. The disastrous effects of the recent dronght were greatly accelerated by the insufficiency of tanks with which the holdings were provided. This was only one of a number of features were settlement has been marked by a lack of that improvement which i...

BUNGENDORE [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 14 June 1904
BUNGENDORE FAIRY MEanow has of late had a very busy appearance, ptincipally on account of the lime works recently started there by Messrs. Doyle Bros. A great deal of lime is sent from there to Buntendore and places further south, also Goulburn and Yass, and the quali y of the lime is considered equal to anything in the State. Mr. Doyle states that he will have to erect more kilns, as he can hardly supply the numerous orders he is constantly receiving. This will also be the means of employing considerably more labour. Truck loads of wood are also being despatched from the locality by train, and meet with ready sale. The Postal Depart ment hbve granted a daily mail to Mount Fairy, which is of great convenience to the residents of that place. A very pleasant gathering of the memberv of the Bungendore Brass Band met on the invitation of Mr. Ward, bandmaster, at his large room on last Tuesday evening. Re freshments were laid and a most pleasant evening was spent. The health of Mr. and M...
A USEFUL FODDER PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 14 June 1904
A USEFUL FODDER PLANT. AT Smithfield, Mr. P. A. Pavesi, a well known vigneron .nd orchardist, is persever ing in his endeavour to aoolimatise the Italian consolida grass. He has been very persistent in his efforts for a number of years, and has now a fair prospeot of success. The grass is a prolific grower, and yields up to as much as 40 tons to the acrd. It is a fine milk-producing fodder plant, much resembling tobacco leaf in appearance, and in Italy it is largely cultivated. Mr. Pavesi has procured the latest available literature dealing with its growth from his native country, and is making a thorough study of the subject. He hopes to have a good many roots for re setting from the couple of dozen plants which have matured in his garden During the past four or five months the consolida grass has formed the chief article of diet for his seven cows, the leaves grow ing so rapidly that they can be picked up for feed every alternate day. So far the frosts have not had any ill effects...
