I MITTAGONG MATTERS. Prior to his departure for Ireland, I Mr. J. Wall, of the Farm Homes staff, was entertained and presented with a silver-mounted pipe, the pre sentation beintr made bv Mr. W. H. Mitchell, superintendent. The staff of the Farm Homes, as well as en tertaining Mr. J.

The as sociation was formed in 1922, and the initial meeting was the only one held. Mr r. T- .- V„.. rinbool School, has been...

ANCIENT ARCHITECTURE. AMAZING DISCOVERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
ANCIENT ARCHITECTURE. AMAZING DISCOVERIES. 'Discoveries of the greatest im portance' in regard to the history of aijpient architecture are described in the latest report of the excavation work, on the site of Ur, in Mesopo The excavations are being carried out by the British Museum and Penn sylvania University joint expedition. A paved courtyard over 90 yards long by 60 yards wide is being ex cavated. It is surrounded by very thick walls containing intra-mural I chambers. The buttressed walls | were of mud brick, covered with a heavy mud plaster, and wonderfully preserved whitewash. The report continues: — 'The feature of the court which gave it its special importance was that one of the sides was decorated from end to end with brick halfcol umns attached to the wall face; they were big shafts a yard across, and down the middle of each ran a T shaped groove breaking the mono tony of the curve. WITHOUT PRECEDENT. 'In front of this was a low sleeper wall, on the top of which were shal...
Sunday Games. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
Sunday Games. The Rev. H. Green, a Methodist minister at Bathurst, does not desire that those who indulge in sport on Sundays should worship at his church. In the course of 'a sermon Mr. Green made a- strong protest jxritinef Knniinv ennft Tfo eaiii that. if people intended to indulge in re creation on the Lord's Day, the al ternate result would be that they would have to work seven days a week for six days' pay. They should make God's House a place of worship on Sundays, but it was no place for those- .who indulged in -Sunday tennis, golf, Cricket, or any other kind of sport.,
OLD MEN MADE YOUNG. BUT CAN'T KEEP SO. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
OLD MEN MADE YOUNG. j BUT CAN'T KEEP SO. j I I Professor Serge Voronoff, the irre pressible Russian-French gland spe cialist, has been at it again. , -An elderly Englishman', 'feeble to the point of senility,' has been fur nished with a' glad graft and has be come 'almost an. Adonis' immediate ly — in fact, the professor has the lantern slides to prove it. And if the supply of chimpanzees holds out, every doddering old grandfather in Europe seems assured of a new lease of life, as well as a return of his nineteenth century boyish dreams of romance. For it is Voronoff's boast that he not only restore; mere physical health to his patients by his opera tion, but the typical mental outlook of youth as well. His earlier experi ments on animals proved that it was possible to so rejuvenate animals of an age corresponding to that of old men of 80, that they took up the story of life afresh and became fa thers of multitudinous 'families as well as champion fighters' among the flock.

LABOR RECALL. MAY NOT BE EXERCISED. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
LABOR RECALL. MAY NOT BE EXERCISED. TKe Daily Telegraph says: — Opinion in well-informed . A.L.P. circles is that the decision'of the State conference to enforce the recall- of Labor members of Parliament will never be enforced. It is considered that the conference decision is not .binding in any cir cumstances on the federal members, because they arc answerable only to the Federal conference, which frames the policy and rules for Labor in the Commonwealth sphere. The most that is likely to' happen/so far . as they are concerned is that the recall decision will go forward as a recom mendation, to the Federal conference in October. ^ Messrs. . Charlton and .Blakeley, * Bfs.P., representing the® Federal Par liamentary Labor Party, will Wait on « the State executive next Friday night, and it is expected that action will be taken then - which will set all doubts at rest, so far as Federal' mem- bers are concerned. ? With regard to the .'position of State Labor Parliamentarians, it was s...
SPEED THRILLS. EXCITING MOTOR RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
SPEED THRILLS, EXCITING MOTOR RACES. At the Aspendale (Vic.) motor) racing meeting, the best race of the day was the 600 c.c. ' solo handicap, won' by R. Hipwell (Douglas) after an event full of thrilling incidents. In the first lap C. Meynall (Tri- 1 uinpli) crashed at the back of the track, and the next lap Clifton (Douglas) crashed at the bend while j going at 60 miles per houff Hipwell ] also left the track, but kept on the saddle, and rode back on the track. All . had wonderful cscapcs. - The- fight for first place was be tween Hipwell and Conoulty, both Douglas. Hipwell, after a sensa- j tional tussle, won by a hundred yards, only by wonderful riding. The most sensational incident of the day was in the under c.c. han dicap. Cooper skidded violently on the .wet track coming into the straight, but, recovered, and, turn ing out of the stretch into a bad bend, skidded twice round, and then ran backwards off the track for 40 yards. Cooper, who was not hurt, resumed, and got the lea...
FODDER TRIALS ON SOUTH COAST. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
FODDER TRIALS ON SOUTH j COAST. j In a report to the Department of Agriculture upon maize trials for green fodder on the South Coast, In structor R. N. Makin states that the plots for the most part, suffered through unfavorable weather condi tions. In each case Fitzroy maize j was sown with black cowpeas, and trials were made with 1401b. super, |.2101b. MiS., 1621b. M. 13, and with no manure. Mr. J. Timbs, of Albion Park, ob tained yields of from 9 tons Ecwt. 2qr. 241b. with M.5, down to 8 tons 4cwt. lqr. 41b. without manure, while Mr. L. B. Gurrud, of Milton, obtained from 16 tons 17cwt. 3qr. 121b. with M.5 down to 13 tons 2cwt. 3qr. 121b. with no manure. The returns from this plot Mr. Makin describes as ex cellent, considering the sandy hill side on which it was grown. The cow peas grew better here than in any other district. Mr. A. Louttit (Moruya) got his best yield (25 tons 2cwt. 3qr. 121b.) with superphosphate, while the plot without manure yielded 20 tons to the acre. The rai...
USE OF MANURES FOR VEGETABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
- USE OF MANURES FOR] VEGETABLES. Farmyard manure, green manure, and artificial fertilisers can all be used with advantage by the vege table grower. Without enlarging here upon the advantages of the use of the two first-mentioned man ures in relation to their beneficial effect upon the mechanical condition of the soil it may be said that arti ficial manures-are better used to sup plement applications of farm manure (or failing this, of green manure) - than in place of them. Of animal manures, each has its '& particular utility, but availability is ' a big consideration, and use must be '« made of whatever kind is handy, for all are jnorc or less of value in the growing of vegetables. Horse manure is drier than most manures, and for this reason it acts most quickly, and is most efficient in the raising of early crops. As it de composes rapidly, and consequently generates heat in a shorter time than a slow decomposing manure (such as cow manure), it is most valuable for winter...

"ITS GOOD TO WEMBLE." PRINCE OF WALES SEES AUSTRALIA AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
'IT'S GOOD TO WEMBLE.' PRINCE OF WALES SEES AUSTRALIA AGAIN. The Prince of Wales recently paid a surprise visit to the Australian pa vilion at Wembley, and was escorted: by Mr. E. Farrar, M.L.C. The Prince ehowSd the keenest in .tprcst in the exhibits and correctly identified several scenes. Observing a wall-view of Sydney Cricket Ground, he said, 'That's where I spent my birthday.' His -comments were most favorable. He declared that the general atmosphere was so true that he felt he was tra velling in Australia again. The visit of the Prince of Wales, who was accompanied by Lord and Lady Louis Mountbatten, to the Ex hibition, was entirely unexpected, and unannounced. He told his hosts when he arrived that the party sim ply wanted to walk round like ordin ary sight-seers. The public did not recognise the Prince until he arrived at the Australian pavilion from the Malayan court. Afterwards the crowd followed the party, but was not allftwed to crush in and spoil the informality of the...
WOMAN AND WAR CONFERENCE IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
' WOMAN AND WAR j CONFERENCE IN SYDNEY. j With the object of discussing the problem of the prevention of the causes of war, a conference of the National Council* of Women was opened in Sydney on Monday. There 'vas an attendance of about 100 de legates from women's organisations. Lady Forster, who presided, sn-d the conference was especially inter esting because it was one of the many j similar gatherings being held in ail parts of the world where there were National Councils of Women. Such J a meeting would be impossible fifty years ago. Even a quarter of a cen tury ago it would have been impro bable. That the National Council of Women was now prepared to discuss the great question of the prevention of the causes of war was in itself a sign of the times, and of the pre sent day trend of thought. Thought, after all, was the precurser of action, and if thought was directed in the path of peace, war would be the more unlikely. In other days peace conferences had been held, but not with...
STAGGERING COST OF PROHIBITION. (Published by Arrangement). [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
STAGGERING COST OF PROHIBITION. (Published by Arrangement). The New York 'Times,' which is no friend of Prohibition, says in a leading article that the superintend ent of the Anti-Saloon League of New York 'tells us that it costs about. 100,000,000 dollars (say, £20,000,00.0) to enforce 'prohibition ; hall of that- sum to enforce it in New York State., It would take a good deal , bigger £gJW$ to indicate what it costs in iftst. excise, and license taxes, national, States ' and locaLi Tie Government,' f^r. -instance, could eas ily realise as 'much, as the customs yield by a tax oh beers and wines; nut the Prohibitionists have solemnly determined that any drink with more than one-half per cent, of alcohol is intoxicating end accursed. They might just as well have ordained that two and two make seven. It is not for laymen, concludes the 'Times,' to penetrate these myster ies. The great thing is to continue to disseminate the facts.'
A TRUE MIGRANT. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
A TRUE MIGRANT. Thrfe catted 6n *us yesterday (says the South Coast Times) a true mi grant, according' to the meaning of the word, one George Groom, an English lad of 18, tall and wiry look ing. The story he told, and his man ner suggested one who could be taken at his word, was that about two years ago he left England with an ambi tion to travel round the world work ing his way and so he may be able to say he has done the grand tour not as a globe trotting tourist but in the rough. He arrived in Melbourne, and from there made his way into the back country' out as far at Balran ald. Wbrldng on the land. He got round to Melbourne again, thence to the .Fiji Islands ; from there to Syd ney, ^hetfe he got a berth on a steamer bbun'd' for Vancouver; he left' her at San' Francisco, stayed there1 five -day^'and gbt ship again for Sydney.1' There, 'be stowed on a steamer bound for Nauru Island.

MAIZE HUSKING CONTESTS [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 9 May 1924
MAIZE HUSKING CONTESTS At the Hawkesbury Show last week Alf Garfliner again won the maize-husking contest. Gardiner has been champion since 1904, and has a record of 100 cobs in 3min. 14}sec. Recknninc nn t.Tin rofiK holnir of oiror. age size, this is equal to a rate of 18} bushels an hour. This figure is extremely good in comparison with the average farmer, who, sitting in his barn at night, or -on a wet day, reckons he haB done well if he gets through four or five bushels per hour. Commenting on these figures, Mr. H. Wenholz, B.Sc. (Agr.), special ag ricultural instructor, stated that some figures recently received from Amer ica show that in a husking contest in Iowa, the best record made was 161 bushels per hour. This showed Alf Gardiner's record to be a very worthy one. Since the advent of the maize-husking machines, husking maize by hand was not so largely practised, but there was still a good deal of maize - to be husked in this way for seed purposes, and by farm ers who had o...
