AUTUMN FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
AUTUMN FEEDING. Autumn, above all seasons in the year, is the one when the farmer wants to have some green feed for his cows., so that they can face the cokl weather in good heart, as well as keep up the milk flow. During the fag-end of the season the grasses weaken off. and are not very nutri tious. The farm which has a few armsful of oats, or a few heads of field cabbage, or some choumoellier, or some leaves of rape.' or anything that can be raised during this time of the year, will well repay the in vestment. Besides, the green fodder will keep up the milk flow to the standard of the flush months of the year. There is a tendency on the part of the farmers to raise more green feed than formerly, but a great number have not yet been induced to see the great advantage of this sen sible provision. It must be disheart ening to any farmer to see his cows going rapidly off their milk as the summer wanes, and it is a wonder that they do not make any attempt to remedy the cause of the dec...
CITY YARDS. Fat Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
CITY YARDS. Fat Pigs. Heavy supplies have come forward during the past couple of sales, the yardings totalling 1G50 pigs. Bacon ers and porkers were about equally distributed.

Prime young porkers were in real good request, and realised figures well up to previous high rates. The heavier classes did not command quite the same attention, and a slight fall resulted, nevertheless values were highly pleasing. Competition, for baconers proved, firm, and prices show ed. no alteration, excepting for the w.eiglity descriptions, which proved hard to quit. Backf atters alsp suffer ed.'

CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
CATTLE. From 90 owners 2042 were listed for sale, out of which 1938 were sold. The bulk of the consignments were from the northern districts, with n few from the west and south. Queensland was t responsible for about 300 head. Extra-prime quality was limited to a few yards of bullocks and cows. Those most in evidence were handy weight steers and bullocks, with a fair proportion of cows and heifers. About 40 bulls were also forward, some of which were in low condition. Buyers were in usual attendance, but the supply proved above the demand, " and values reduced accordingly, a fall of 10/ per head for good trade meat was noticeable. Best beef may be quoted to 21/ per 100 lbs., extra prime bullocks brought to £9/10/, prime £7/10/ to £8: good. £5/10/ to £6/10/; medium, from £4; extra prime cows to £8; prime. £6 to £7; good trade, £4/10/ to £5/10; medi um, from £2/10/.

SOME FORTHCOMING SHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
SOME FORTHCOMING SHOWS. In this quiet season nothing mxieli is, doing among women, except in the way of preparation for the dif ferent shows, which will be opened in April. There is, of course, first of all the Koval Show, which is of keen interest to women in both town and country. Then the very elaborate All Nations' Fair, in aid of the Prince Al fred Hospital Nurses' Fund, is bound to attract crowds of women, and the many novelties in women's work, which are promised, will merit a full description when the time comes. Again, "Our Girls'" Exhibition, which will occur *n April, is being organised on a very large scale. The former one held two years ago, come Easter, was a most brilliant success, and this one is going to better it. Miss Grace Burrows, the secretary of the Girls' Realm Guild, is doing all the organ ising, and she reports that whereas when getting up the first affair she had to canvass among exhibitors to induce them to make a display, now she is being besieged by req...
Dairies Supervision Act. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Dairies Supervision Act. The Department of Public Works has forwarded to Waradgery Shire, a letter respecting the extension of the Dairies Supervision Act to the Shire, stating that the Board of Health could not see its way to ex tend the power to shire councils at present. One councillor said that some of the dairies within the sliire were shockingly kept. The President suggested that the council should write to . the Department, and show cause why the shire should have su pervision. The adjoining municipal ity of Hay had control, and the Act was better administered than in their sliire. It was decided that further representations be made to the De partment in the matter.

THE COAT AND SKIRT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
THE COAT AND SKIRT. The first scene of the comedy of this year's fashions ends with "exit the tailor-made." After years of faithful service and companionship, -we are giving this much-worn cos tume the go-by. The one piece dress has ousted it. Little frocks done up the hack.and made of that new vel "vet, which is cloth on one side, and nearly always vegetable silk on the other, are now to be the wear of every day. But the woman who re joices that the tyranny of tailor made-for the mode was becoming a trifle exigeant-is a thing of the past, would do well to consider how .useful is the coat and skirt suit for "travelling. "When the time comes to pack the boxes for the trip to Eng land. and a search of the wardrobe reveals that the tailor-made of the season before last is to much of a has-been for ship wear, then will the unsuitableness of any other kind of travelling dress be borne in upon the voyagee. For a train journey, also, the coat and skirt is unsur passed for comfort. So most ...
Council's Treasurer. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Council's Treasurer. The following is an extract from a report of the West Maitland council, as published in a local paper:-"Elec tion of Treasurer.-The Mayor pro posed, and Alderman Gail seconded, that Alderman Chant be appointed treasi^rer.-Alderman Ribee moved, and Alderman Mannall seconded, that Alderman McLauclilin be appointed. A ballot was taken, Alderman Chant being successful." It is evident that the position is looked upon as an im portant one in that council, al though we fail to understand the ne cessity for such an appointment, or the authority to do so. Under the old Municipalities Act, it was neces sary that the treasurer should sign the application for endowment, but no such necessity now exists.
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
DON'T PUT OFF. Seeing your friends and trying to induce them to subscribe for "The Land." They'll find it a profitable inr vestment. Lord Wolseley, writing in 1893 : - " I do not profess to enter upon the strength of the military forces main tained by Canada. Australia, and our other colonies. Their importance will be fully recognised whenever God in His mercy is pleased to send us a statesman wise enough and great enough to federate and consolidate into one united British Empire all the many lands and provinces which ac knowledge (^ueen Victoria as their Sovereign."
A Council in Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
A Council in Trouble. An action brought by John Thomas Smedley and Sametta Smedley, his wife,, against the municipality of Ash field, to recover compensation for in juries received by the female plain- "' tiff, owing to- the alleged negligence of the defendants in allowing a foot path in Yasmar-street to remain in a dangerous condition, was heard last week. 1 There were three counts in the declaration, the first setting forth that defendants wrongfully cut up and caused deep ruts in the foot path in the street named, and there by rendered the footpath dangerous to persons passing along the road, and plaintiff, when passing along the footpath in June last, stepped into one of the ruts, and was thrown down, one of her ankles being broken, besides which she was otherwise in jured, whereby she was laid up for a long time, The second count charged that defendants neglected to properly light the locality. Under the. third count, the male plaintiff claimed for loss of his wife's services, ...
Council's Workmen. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Council's Workmen. The Engineer of Stroud Shire, at last council meeting, imported that he had put off several men towards the end of last year, on account of the council's funds being low, and the council instructing him to take that step. On hearing of this ex-Council lor Gorton had an interview with the man, who lives at Johnston's Creek, and put him on again, and sent him to Black Camp to join one of the council's gangs. Mr. Gorton's action was in direct conflict with the autho rity of the Engineer, and the Presi dent, the latter acting by special di rection of the council. Ordinance No. 4, section 10, states that the Engineer under the control of the President, shall engage, suspend, and dismiss workmen employed at daily or week ly wages. Ex-Councillor Gorton was also aware that there is a motion on the council's books, that the Engineer is to have sole control of ' the main tenance men. The man referried to has not been paid for January, and the question to be decided is, will...
Councils' Officials. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Councils' Officials. Orange Council have increased the salaries of their officials as follows: - Mr. H. Rockliff, Deputy Town Clerk, an additional £13 per annum;-Mr. A. J. Allen, assistant town clerk, £26 per annum; Mr. H. Armitage, sani tary inspector, £36 per annum. The Clerk of Windsor Council (Mr. W. Evans) applied to the council for a remuneration of £10 for the ex tra and unexpected work that had fallen on his shoulders since he took office. A motion was submitted that he receive the amount. An amend ment was moved that his salary be increased from £156 to £175, the amount the previous clerk got. The Clerk said, on principle, he preferred the £10 bonus to the proposed rise of salary. The amendment was withdrawn, and the motion for the £10 to be paid carried. Armidale Council devoted a deal of attention at their last meeting to the question of the appointment of a clerk who was uncertificated. It seems that their town clerk resigned some little time back, and the coun cil calle...
Bore at Moree. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Bore at Moree. At a special meeting of the muni cipal council to consider the question of taking over the artesian bore, the Mayor (Mr. Crane) read the corre spondence between the council and the Public Works Department on the subject. A letter had just been re ceived, stating that the Minister for Works, was prepared to consider a proposal from the council to take over the bore. Provided suitable baths were erected at a cost of £1000, the Minister was prepared to advance £1000 from the Public Works Fund, at 3% per cent, interest, and was will ing to hand over the bore at a rea sonable valuation, and extend the payments over 28 years at 0 per cent. He was further prepared to make ar rangements by which all lands con nected with the bore should return to the council a percentage of rents, or transfer the current leases to the council. The Mayor moved,-"That the council is strongly in favour of tak ing over the bore, subject to a satis factory . arrangement of detail, and that, certai...

Elections of Presidents and Mayors. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Elections of Presidents and Mayors. As predicted in our issue of 24th February, the Works Department have pronounced that the amendment of Ordinance No. 2, which deals with the election of mayors and"presidents, is ultra vires, it being a contradic tion of section 35 of the L.G. Act. The Acts says the mayor or presi dent shall preside at meetings of the council, and the ordinance referred to. authorises the clerk to take the chair on the occasion of . election of "pl"eatde«t or nisiyor." Consequently, all elections under the last-named provision, are to be treated as if no election at all had taken place, and the Governor has now appointed the councillor or alderman, as the case may be, that the council have selec ted, to the position. Another question arises. In many cases, while the clerk was in the chair, the annual allowance was fixed for the mayor or president. This, in itself, is illegal, but now in view of the Department's decision, is doubly so. These amounts will in eyery c...
COUNTRY REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
COUNTRY REPORTS. Messrs. A. B. Menzel & McCarthy.. Gilgandra, report :-Land is still being sought after in this district by Victorian and Uiverina buyers. In one week recently we disposed of over £28,000 wortu of land, nearly all of which is close to Gilgandra. £8 an acre was paid by Mr. F. J. D. Hanckel, of Henty, New South Wales, for a splendid property situ ated just on the town boundary. This: is easily the highest price that has been paid for agricultural land in this district. Sheep are being eagerly sought after by graziers, and it i3 difficult to supply the demand, par ticularly for crossbreds. There is a shortage of draughc horses,, particu larly mares, and anything of fair class commands high prices. There is a mild demand for cattle. Hawkins,. Ltd., Newcastle, report on March 8 :-Fat cattle : Fair sup plies yarded to a moderate attend ance of buyers. The market was lower than last week's firm rates, jjest bullocks maue £8/13/ ; steers. £6/10/. . Fat sheep : Fair s...
