Expenditure in Ridings. Cr. Niland, Tarro Sliire, is of opi nion that the revenue derived from each particular riding, with its share of endowment, less its share of ad ministrative expenses, should be spent in that riding. The President .said\ that course would be followed, as far as practicable.
SOME PRETTY NEW COLOURS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
SOME PRETTY NEW COLOURS. The feeling now is decidedly for bright shades. Some rich colours have been evolved for our delectation, and already shown in the advance displays. Blue is first favourite as yet, though many predict that pur ple, together with royal blue., will queen it in the world of the well dressed. A very bright cerise, a vivid green, a rich glowing tangerine are used where splashes of bright colour are wished, while the delicate greys are very numerous, and range from a pale oyster to that deep mole which is almost a black. Gold as a trim ming is seen in tassels and cords. Hardly a gown goei out now with out a touch of that precious metal about it somewhere or other, while black in touches will also be much in evidence. The pinks-such as vieux rose and terracotta-seem to be having rather a quiet time of it at present. Yet they are very distin guished when made up in the right materials, and should not be over looked when a choice is being made of a suitable gown. Thes...
WHITE IS IN FAVOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
WHITE IS IN FAVOUR. The liking for white amounts al most to a craze. Small ronnd toques of ermine, which fits closely to the head, must be put on very firmly and squarely, covering all the hair, and al lowing the .face to be once more be held by passers-by. The uncovering of the face again will be hailed with joy by those grumblers who have complained for the last two or three seasons that they can't see who is bowing to them. Ermine is the most fashionable fur: it is going to have a big vogue, although one would think that the coronation would take up all the available ermine in the world at present. "White cloth is looked i!pop with the eye of appro val for race gowns and other festi val garments. Any woman who claims to be well dressed is ordering at least one white dress among her autumn outfits. But white is most expensive wear, and that fact must make most of us hesitate before choosing a new gown.
Women's Affairs Fashions of the Week ECCENTRIC MODES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
cr g d_= Women's Affairs \C By 'THE WIFE.-' j) Fashions of the Week ECCENTRIC MODES. Wliilc we liave not as yet beheld anything approaching the harem skirt in eccentricity and treakisliness. I opine that some quaintness will be infused into the moues of the com ing autumn. The tea cosy toque and the straight up and down dress "will positively become a uniform be fore long. An enormous muff and a "wrap or ermine or bear or whatever fur you can afford will finish a cos tume that is composed of a tunic to the knee over a straight deep piece from knee to foot, generally of vel vet, though, to be very smart some of the models show this underskirt of fur-ermine for choice. But the excessively furred appearance fared so .'.terribly in this warm month of March that the drapers are putting it- forward with a kind of apology, as it Avere, just to let us see what \ve can have if we like. Then it should be noted that the bolero is coming in again for which we shall all be grateful. The little j...
AMERICAN SHEEP DECREASING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
AMERICAN SHKiiP DECREASING. The 1910 stock returns of the Uni ted States show a decrease of 615,800 slieep, exclusive of lambs, the num ber being 44,241,400, as against 441, 867,200 in 1910. The wool clip also shows a decrease in the average yield per head, being 3 oz. This falling-off was due to a very cold and rainy spring. Although the average wool per had shows 7 lb. 12 oz. and 7 lb. 9 oz. respectively for the two years, this fine average would not compare favourably with the Australian one, when both are scoured, as very little attention is given to the sheep in some of the counties of the United States. The average price obtained for the wool there is also much below that for Australian. Mr. G. J. Gilmour, president of the Western District Council, will be at Nevertire, on Tuesday, for the dis trict conference on the following day.

Cricket. AUSTRALIA WINS THE FIFTH TEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Cricket. AUSTRALIA WINS THE FIFTH TkoT. The wicket at the Sydney Cricket Ground "was not at its best for the start of the fifth test, and the final appearance of the South Africans in this State. It had rained heavily on Thursday night, and the wicket was not fit to play at noon on Friday, with the result that the start of the match 'was delayed until 2.15." Sher well was pleased when the coin fell in his favour, and he sent Australia in Avitliout any hesitation. Macartney and Kelleway opened for Australia, but the Glebe man was out for two in short order, and Hor dern, partnering the little Gordonite, the pair added a century to the score, when Hordern retired with 50 to his credit. Macartney played a great innings, and put together 137 before he retired l.b.w. to Schwarz, Bardsley and Wliitty were not out at the end of the day's play, and three of Australia's wickets were down for 285. There was a record attendance on Saturday, nearly £1300 being taken at the gates, and the crowd ...

A Sensible Sentiment. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
A Sensible Sentiment. Alderman Wills, in responding for his re-election to Nowra Council, struck the proper keynote for public men and townspeople generally. "Don't let us cry down our town," he said: "let us talk it up, and do all Ave can to promote its interests; and let outside people see that we have confidence in it to-day and in the future. By that means we can make it progress."
Appeals by Councils. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Appeals by Councils. Aid. Hand, Penrith Council, moved at last meeting,-"That the Govern ment be asked to consider the advisa bility of amending the Local Govern ment Act, giving councils the same right as ratepayers to appeal against valuations/' The mover contended that councils should have as much right to appeal, if they considered any valuations too low, as ratepayers had when they considered them too high. On the motion being put, the votes were equal, the Mayor gave his casting vote against it.
Arrears of Rates. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Arrears of Rates. Molong Council is anxious to get in the £182 16s 8d that is owing for rates, so a committee of four alder men was appointed, to go through the list of arrears and report at next meeting, so as to see which, were worth placing in the hands of the solicitor for recovery. Amaroo Shire Council adopted the suggestion of Cr. Black, who sail that as it appeared the council cannot re cover the solicitor's charges in con nection with the recovery of rates, it would he better to sue straight out for all arrears at the end of Feb ruary.
FEEDING THE SOIL The Beneficial Results of Manuring. Some Typical Examples. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Ill ill FEEDING THE SOIL The Beneficial Results of Manuring. Some Typical Examples. AWELL-KNOWX, and oft-quot ed. maxim in the com mercial world ru>is tliu»: "One must spend money to make money." But the aphorism is of wider application, and it is just as true in regard to farming opera tions as to commercial speculations. If careful investigation be made, it will be found that the agriculturist who spends most money, wisely, of course, in the development and utili sation of his land, is he who, in the long run secures the best monetary return from it. A farm is some thing like a banking account-it will become exhausted if it be not fed. A Record Crop of Wheat, grown by Mr. W. J. Cartwright, of Temora. As. well expect to have an inexhaus tible fund to draw upon without from time to time replenishing it with reasonable deposits, as to he able to continually take crops from the same land without recouping the soil for the exhausting drafts which the crops are continually making up ...

Shire and Municipality [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
\p I Shire and Municipality "The Land" will welcome discussion upon matters specially affecting shires and country municipali ties, and will as far as possible, furnish specific information in answer to questions. Aid. W. Green, Tamworth, writes: -"The Mayor of Tamworth, at the last council meeting, ruled tlie fol lowing motion out of order,-'That a meeting of any committee may be called on the requisition of, three members of such committee.' Had the Mayor any authority from the Ordinances for such ruling, and if so ?\Vill you kindly state the particular ordinance?" [Ordinance No. 2, clauses 64 to 71 deals with committees, both standing and special. Clause 67 says:-"Each committee, other than the commit tee of the whole, may regulate its own procedure." It will be observed that the word "may" is introduced. If . the' 'word "shall" was used, then we are of opinion that a council could riot interfere in the direction indi cated. We are not informed whether any committee of the counci...
Annual Estimates. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Annual Estimates. In an exchange., we read of one shire council, when preparing its esti mates in the month of December for 1911, included two months' (i.e., No vember and December, 1910) expen ses therein, thus, making 14 months' estimates. Of course, that was wrong, provision should have been made in the estimates for 1910 for those two months. Every year must stand on its own, from 1st January to 31st December, and the estimates should be for that period only. Now, we come across another, which includes: "Two months' supply for 1912, £450." This is equally wrong. The inten tion is a good one, but it was never intended that such a provision should be made in the estimates in that way. The same result could be at tained in a perfectly legitimate man ner by the council so arranging its finances that at the end of the year they shall, have a balance in hand of £450, so, as to enable them to pay their way until,.;the,next, year's...ra,tea. commence to come in. The Act, in tends that t...

A Motor Cycle. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
A Motor Cycle. The Engineer of Peel Shire (Mr. C. W. Jenkins) lias asked the council to purchase a motor cycle for his assist tant, who last year travelled 4500 miles by horse and sulky. The time thus occupied was 750 hours; by means of a cycle 450 hours could have been saved, which was equal to 65 days in the year, at the rate of sGveii hours' travelling a day. The ; council is to consider the proposal.
SINGING AS A PROFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
SINGING AS A PROFESSION. Beautiful voices are plentiful in our sunny state. Nature lias not been grudging in the way in which she has endowed girls and boys alike with sweet singing voices to delight and gratify the ears of all their hearers. "The girl who sings" or. "the boys with a voice." are familiar in all the cities and country centres. Singing as a career for girls has al ways been pretty well before the pub lie, but never more so than just now when two of our singing girls have been receiving much notice in the English newspapers. The news about them has been widely different, and in no other could the curious ups and downs of life and the haphazard ways that Fate has in bestowing her favours be brought so clearly before our eyes as in contrasting the dif ferent luck falling to Osca Marah and Ella Caspers. Osca Marah is Mrs. F. Grundy. Her maiden name was May McCain ley, daughter of a Balmain resident. This Sydney girl has come to the front lately in London, gaining much enc...
