CUMNOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 26 January 1912
CUMNOCK. (From Our Own .Correspondent).; v During this week the heat • has been very oppressive. Last Monday was 'the.hottest-day- this summer, the thermometer registering 102 "degrees. • Mr P. Logue, a local farmer, while on the road to Molong last Monday with a waggon load of wheat, hi's" horses became frightened at a motor bike, and bolted, going some considerable distance, until one of the -jshaf ters fell, and got itsf leg beneath wheel^-rT-tie flesh was'torn clean off -tire lower, portion of the leg, but strange to say, no bones were broken, and though now in a bad state, it is thought the animal may again be useful. A young man named Jas. Nugent, who for some years has been working on Loombah station, while loading wool on a dray last Tuesday, the horse started, and Jim was thrown out, and broke his leg below the Knee. Dr. Neumann was called in, and the sufferer was ordered to Molon? hospital, where he was to-day admitted for treaViMnt. " Cumnock annual show-tafcesplace I on ...
EXPEEIMENTS, WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 26 January 1912
EXPEEIMENTS, WISE AND OTHERWISE. It is an inherent weakness of human nature to never be entirely satis fled, but to be always prying into-the unknown in our eagerness to discover what further hidden benefits creation has in store for us, so that we "can levy tribute on' these new forces, and harness them up for the uses of mankind. We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the scientist and the chemist for their patient and profound investigations, the results of which frequently are so far. reaching, and of such enormous benefit to the general community. Now for another picture. If a certain article has been on the market for fully a generation, until its name has become a household word in the community, and it is absolutely , relied upon for its many good qualities, it would not be a wise experiment to try some unknown article, which was advertised to be just as good as the article which had stood the test of time. This is exactly the position of the "Alfa-Laval" Cream Separator, w...

MINING AT CALARIE. AN ABANDONED REEF. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 26 January 1912
mining it galarie. * ABANDONED REEF. The Lachlan reef, discovered 16 years ago by Sinclair, is on flat country. about 3 miles from Forbes. The contour of the surface does not indicate that a true fissure lode might he expected to exist in it, as the bones of the earth, as it were, do not protrude through the surface as in ridgy or mountainous country, which indicates volcanic or seismic upheavals. There is no promise that the Lachlan reef, which is uneven in size, and full of faults, even to the shallow depth of 670 feet, which represents the deepest workings, will live at a depth. In places the reef bunched big, and in one part between the 230 feet level and the 307 feet level on the south side of the main shaft, the lode was 70ft. in thickness, and averaged 15dwts. of gold to the ton for a distance of 240 feet in the level and"-stripes. ^ Altogether £141,000 worth of gold was taken from the mine during the 10 years of its existence;^ but a glalnce at a map of the workings shows th...

MATTERS MUSICAL. GRENFELL ON THE MOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 26 January 1912
MATTERS MUSICAL. GRENFELL ON THE MOVE. Mr L. J. Hagarty, of the Lands Department", honorary secretary;? of the Forbes Musical Union, returned from Sydney after a month's holiday. No doubt now a start will be made to rehearse the Pirates of Penzance, which is to be staged about the beginning of June. There is a movement afoot to remunerate in some: way for his efforts in the past, Mr G. MorVow, the conductor, as some of the leading members of the union fully recognise that his services: should be acknowledged in some way. Mr Hagarty has received a letter from the Grenfell Musical' Society, of which Mr H. M. Potts is the chief1" offender, stating that they are going to hold a musical competition there on June 3rd, and asking the co-operation of the Forbes Union, and also whether the. latter will compete in the choral test-for not less than 25 voices, and not more than 50, the prize for which is £ 50. The trouble, is that it is such a long way round by.rail to Grenfell that the journey...
AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL NOTES. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND IMPROVING THE DAIRY HERDS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 26 January 1912
AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL NOTES. for the man on the land (Issued by the Department of Agriculture). ''IMPROVING THE DAIRY HERDS. Ever since dairying has become prominent as an economic factor in rural industry, dairymen have often been perplexed at the extraordinary •disparity in the milk and butter yielding powers between individual cows. ; Although the animals may be, presumably of the same type'or . breed, they seemed to possess some .. mysterious characteristic which influenced their productive capacity in a higher, or lower degree, as the case maybe. To level up tire milking qualities of a dairy herd, testing eacji cow's daily yield of milk by weigtffng it, and for the bu'tter fat it contained, has been resorted to with beneficial results.. Those cows npt showing a reasonable yield over a period were rejected from the herd. By these means —-with pure-bred bulls of known dairy quality as a base—herds havs been improved to a very appreciable extent. There is, however, some ...
