BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 29 May 1914

BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT, Evidence is accumulating that if the bulk handlin- of wheat were courage ou&ly faced. the difficulties in the way of successfully establishing it would not prove nenrly us great as many people imagine. One of the uncertain factors in its adoption has been tho fear that shipping companies would object to tho risk of carrying hulk cargoes on the long sea voy-iges from Australia to Great -Britain, and thus cause trouble. A few days ago the "Argus" pub lished an interview with one of tho big ship owners in London, and this authority slated emphfltically that as soon as arrangements are made at this end for bulk handling, shipowners will readily fa'.l in with the now airangemenb and provide adequate transport facilities. Bulk shipments aro regularly mado from Argentine, as well as from Canada and tho United" States, and there can bo no doubt .that competition in tho shipping trade would soon givo the Australian trade all the advantages requited for bull; c...

The power exerted by the roots and stems of growing trees is almost incredible. The roots of a young oak ara known to have lifted a block N of granite weighing 6J / tons.
