STRATHBOGIE. I hare to report the best news we have had lor many a day, Mr. Editor, -what appears to bo the break up of the drought. Since Saturday, when heavy thunder commenced, ,tho condi tions pointed to rain, and on Monday afternoon and evening rain fell steadily, and everything seems favorable . to a useful fail, the weather being very close and sultry. Should the rain con tinue, those who have persevered with their stock will be well rewarded, for a similar rainfall took place exactly two years ago, and stock increased in price double and one of the best sea. , sons followed ever seen in" the North. East. There is. no reason why this should not take place . again, even if the rain .came as late as Christmas, and if so tliQre will soon bo plenty of fat stock, and the present ralber trying timo for-the dry country people will "soon be forgotten.

UPPER GOULBURN. Mr. McKenzle's Views. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 24 November 1914

UPPER GOULBURN. Mr. McKenzle's Views. Mr. 31. K. McKenzie, Liberal can didate for Upper Goulburn, considers the election a contest between the Liberals and Socialists. Liberalism al ways stood for individual welfare, while Socialism stood for the collective con. trol of the means of production, dis. tributing and exchanging, and in this way it was inimical to true progress and advancement. In New South Wales there was a Labor Government in the power and it had increased the in. debteilness of the Slate by £24,000,000 notwithstanding it came into office as a n03.borrowing Government. The civil servants there now had to submit to a reduction in salaries of 10 per cent., and they were paying 5} per oant. interest. That was how the Labor Go. vemment had administered affairs in New South Wales. In Western Aus tralia when the Labor Government came into power it had a surplus, but now there was a deficiency of £G40,000. It was all very well for Mr. Elmslie to say he had nothing to do with ...

PROFITABLE AND UNPROFITABLE COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 1 December 1914

PROFITABLE AND UNPROFIT ABLE COWS. Only a rich mail can afford to keep unprofitable cows. Somotimes it is said that a man, i.niess lie is well-off, cannot afford to own good cows, but that is not true. If lie can afford to own any, he can afford to own the best. The man who refuses to lake the necessary steps to secure a good cow. must work double time to got any profit ,and wait years before be can breed up to a higher standard. It has to bo realised at the beginning that it is better to put all tho money in hair a dozen good cows, than in a dozen inferior oneB. Tho profits of dairying depend entirely upon the cows and the system of raising feed and gving it to the animals. It has been proved that good, not fancy bred, cows havo made £10 profit por year, not for their own ers. after the cost of feed had been de ducted, and all other charges. If ono good cow will make that profit, a herd of 10 or 30 should not a fairly good income. This can be done in almbxt any region whore good me...
