RICE CULTIVATION PRODUCTION OVERTAKES DEMAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 17 January 1929
RICE CULTIVATION I PRODUCTION OVERTAKES DE- I MAUD. i \ In the Leeton irrigation area:-, Vic toria, last season, 20.000 tons .of rice ?were produced from 12,055 acres. Tue actual acreage under crop this season was l(5,o'S»5 acrcsj and it is estimated that about 27,000 tons will be produc ed iitxt harvest. The approximate average annual con sumption of ice in Australia is put down at 24,000 tons, so tliat Leetou is now in n position to supply the whole of the Australian requirements, and, in addition, has a surplus for which over sciuf markets will have to be sought. The quality of the Leeton product is at least equal, and in many quarters is regarded . as much superior, to tho im ported article, and it is hoped by tho Victorian Agricultural Department that ilic public generallj' will give prefer ence to their own. product.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 17 January 1929
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Apple chutney is easy to make. Take three ounces of salt, four ounces of mustard seed, halt a pbuad of chopped onions or shallots, a lit-* j tie cayenne pepper, tvo ounces of i chopped and stoned dat's, a garter of a pound of brown su^cr, two pounds of cooked apples, end half a pint of vinegar. Peel oik! c;:t up tl?e apples, and bring the virejrr.r to the boil, then add all ingredients, and boil until the onions and apples are quite tender. Tfiis chutney is best stored in small jars, as, once a jar is opened, it should be used up rather quickly. Store in a dry, cool place. When eggs are dear remember, when one is needed for binding rissoles, etc. that a little tapioca cooked to a jel ly answers the purpose just as vrcll. By the way, it does not do to try and cook rissoles merely by wetting the mixture with a little milk or water. They must be bound -with something of a binding nature or they are sure to break in the turning. Flour and water is better than clear liqu...

BETTING IN ENGLAND PROBABLE INTRODUCTION OF TOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 17 January 1929
BETTING IN ENGLAND PROBABLE DSTBODUCTION OF TOTS. An English writer states the prob able introduction of the tote on some courses hh' thfe^ New= Year was the topie of the moment when the last mail left England, and people are still wonder ing how things are going to turn ou». A suggestion by the Betting Control Board that small meefings might utilise the pari-mutuel instead of an eleetrt* tote, has met with general condemna tion, as being, old-fashioned and In* practicable, while on the otffer hand it is now established that the minor meet ings, which cannot afford an up-to-date machine, must carry on as betore. Which means, of course, that the book maker witt be the man who counts. The 'tote.,' of course, is an accepted fact, but I fear the optimism of some people is apt to run away with* them. In the end it will mean bigger prizes for owners and breeders, but I do not. for one moment think it will attract much larger crowds. What puzzles me is how the executives at such places as ...

The yachtsmen, who for over a wteek have been sailing small boats on the Swan River in a competition known as the skiff cham pionship, completed their labour and pleasure on Saturday, and this work of love has been characterised by those who ought to. know as the opening eceteeof the centenary drama.
