“The Pastoral Review” was the ‘parent’ of the ‘The Stockman’s Guide’. Then, as now, it appears advertising was one of, if not the main, source of revenue for any publications.

Advertisements are related to the ‘how to’ in the text. Included are fencing, wire netting, dips, machinery, engines, graders, reapers and binders, windmills, hats, wool presses, galvanised sheeting, troughs, wines, saddlery, harness, timber jacks, clothing, footwear and poisons.

Yesteryear I “The Stockowner’s Guide”

“The Stockowner’s Guide”

It is probably fair to claim that this was the ‘bible’ for farmers and stockowners 100 years ago?

Introduction

For the purposes of this series ‘Yesteryear’ will be defined as ‘about 100 years ago’.

The phenomenal success of that attended the issue of the first edition of “The Stockowner’s Guide” has induced the publishers to prepare a second edition. The first edition passed through the ordeal of criticism, and it is satisfactory to note that the comments made upon the work have been very complimentary.

Since the issue of the first edition the publishers have received some suggestions of good practical value from various countries, and this edition here presented embodies a carefully-chosen selection of them. One or two features of the first edition have been deleted, and a great many up-to-date ideas and much new practical information have been added. Among the notable additions are the chapters on useful hints on a great variety of subjects with which the man on the land is daily concerned. There are also several chapters giving homely remedies and treatment for common diseases affecting sheep, cattle, and horses, and as all these, in common with the rest of the information in this work, come from practical sources, they should be of great value to stockowners.

As explained in the first edition of “The Stockowner’s Guide,” the information has been culled from the pages of the world’s greatest farming and livestock journal, “The Pastoral Review”.” Every issue of that journal contains practical information of the nature supplied in these pages, and rather than let it remain out of sight in back numbers, it has been taken out, carefully edited, and brought up-to-date, and presented in the form of this work.

‘The Scone Advocate’ and in particular journalist Caitlin Andrews who did so much to capture the ‘essential spirit’ of the Upper Hunter (Scone) and it’s foundation-stone personalities of real character on which every community is built’. Thank you Caitlin!

Helen Archibald has been a good neighbour to Sarah and I for about 20 years. We have cemented a true friendship although we have both known one another for much longer. Amongst many other ‘unwritten and unrecorded’ facts are that Helen combined with me (and others) to secure a National Australian Award (OAM) for an eminent local medical practitioner.

Payne Family of ‘Waverley’

Payne Family of ‘Waverley’

This could have been a very long tribute. I’ve tried to capture some past reminisces without having known all the protagonists. I already prepared an accolade to one family member Helen Archibald based on an excellent article written by journalist Caitlin Andrews then with the ‘Scone Advocate’.

Tom Payne with Scone Race Club Committee Hilton Cope and the author at the final race meeting at White Park Race Course in October 1993. The photograph was taken at the foot of the old Judge’s Tower; now demolished. This is Tom in typical pose. Do you notice the hat? Racing was not highest on his personal list of ‘essential ceremonials’ but he greatly enjoyed it just the same. Polo was his favourite pageant followed by Bushman’s Carnivals and Rodeos. Tom’s famous ‘Tower’ was only about 200 metres behind the Race Club Judge’s Tower; if you can imagine it? See below!

Tom’s brief foray into thoroughbred racing was promulgated by his good friend ‘Bim’ Thompson from Widden; also a transient migratory visitor to Terrigal to whence Tom and Audrey eventually retired. The filly they raced together was called ‘Waltz’ being by Minor Portion out of Lady Pirouette; I think? She won a few country races; always fun but not then very lucrative.
