Rural Notes [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 19 August 1914
Rural Notes Generally speaking phosphoric acid seems to be the constituent xnost lacking in Australian soils. The beneficial results . of adding superphosphates have been prov ed, chiefly in wheat growing. It has been the means of transforming wide tra-cts that were only sheep country into wheat producing areas. According to Mr Richardson; superin' tendent of Agriculture, the value of tho ^addition of superphosphate can be ex tended in increasing the stock-oarry ing capacity of land, that for various reasons cannot be brought under the -plough. To test tho elfects of &lt;pho$ fphat&lt;?s on grass land, four plots, each of half an acre, were marked out. on natural pasture land at the llutherglen Experimental Farm. One a or© was 'treated with superphosphates at the rate of lewt per acre in 1912, and lewt per acre in 1913. A second plot was left unmanured, a third treated with 2 cwt of Thomas' phosphate in 1913,. and ■a fourth with 2cwt of superphosphate and lOcwt of li...
The War Crisis. "DONT CHANGE HORSES WHEN CROSSING THE STREAM." [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 19 August 1914
The War Crisis. "dokt change houses ween cross ing the stjrea.m," War has inspired Australians with obelise of solidarity. They are united by dangers that threaten all, by agritn determination to maintain the integ rity o£ the Empire which is essential to the well being of all, Mr Cook and Sir William Irvine, Mr Fisher and Mr Hughes met the State Prem iers, Liberal and Labor alike, at a con ference which ia national as no other gathering of the kind has been. Lab orites have withdrawn opposition to the return of Mr Cook, Liberals have allowed Mr Fisher a free course.

DR. FITCHETT ON THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 19 August 1914
DR. FITCHETT ON THE WAR. No one knows the battlegrounds of Europe better than Dr. Fitchett, the author of "How England Saved Europe," etc., and his summary in "Life" for September of the events of the present calamitous outbreak among the nations is deeply interest-* ing and instructive. Taking the Austrian attack upon Servia aa the starting point, he em phasises the folly of the aged Austrian Emperor in forcing Austria's quarrel with Servia and kindling among the great nations so gigantic a conflagra tion. "But behind the personal causes of the war staud the two dim vast shapes of a Pan-Slav League and a Pan-German League," writes Dr Fitchett. "This is the real cause of the conflict", the inexpiable feud between Slav and Teuton." Maps and diagrams add to the interest of this summary, and a powerful cartoon by Nuttall lends force to it. "Life" is devoting a portion of its space to a diary of the war, and announces this as the first of a series of war issues.

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 19 August 1914
^ aw——a——KT—y THE WAR By Bill Eye. i suppose I will be nllowed to talk j ab"\it nothing but the war at the pres ent time, I do so with a feeling of satisfaction, inasmuch as the naval authorities consider the Australian navy may be freed to chase German cruisers on the high seas and our eol dicis may be spared to operate on the 'CoTitiiH'iit, This is an indication that' Australia may rest in safety, with a feeling that her principal patri otic duty is to keep the wheels of indus try revolving and the volume of her trade flowing. At the present time op. inion is much divided as to the ques tion upon whom to fix the guilt of ihis awful war, I have no hesitation in saying that Austria is guilty in the first degree, Germany in the second degree, llussia in the third degree, while Belgium is defending her neut« rainy, France her national existence, 'and Britain ia forced into the war as U hateful necessity m defence of a wea-kor state and in support of her treaty obligations.

The European War. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 19 August 1914
The European War. Writing in the Review of "-Reviews on the European war, Mr Stead asks, "Aie the cables likely to be reliable ?" and lie answers, "No. It is safe to say that no thing should be believed implicitly. Some people still regard anything that ap pears in a newspaper as gospel. They will hardly do so after the war is over. Cables from , interested sources rellect the sender's wishes rather than the facts. Cables at the outbreak of hos tilities are always inaccurate, When General Yule retreated from Dundee, we were reading accounts of a glorious initial victory, in which thousands of Boers had been slaiu.

Football. LANG LANG v. TOORADIN. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 19 August 1914
Football. » LANG LANG v. TOOEADIN. Tooradin had a iairly strong team to meet tlie LaDg Lang 'bailers on the oc casion of the lalters' visit to the seasid ers' ground. The visitors, however, were very weak, and had to play reciuits, and their defeat tinder such disadvantage was not unexpected. However, they put up a good fight, scoring tho first two goals, but the home lads played well to gether, eventually winning by 7—11 to '1—6. Misfortune befel Lang Lang in the third quarter, whin Tibballs, while playing his usual effective game, sprained his ancle badly. In tho last quarter the maroons made a praiseworthy effort to turn the tide of affairs, but the navy blues were too good and kept safely ahead. For Tooradin, White, James, McLean, Henderson and a couplo of strangers were best, and Coghlan, Stan lake, House, Tibballs, Scharf and C. Keighery put up very usoful games for Lang Lang, and a a junior, Daly Eidgway, was also con spicuous for smart play.

Engine Supremacy TUTA NUFA CT URERS of engines that have been before jL *A • the public for twenty, thirty, or even fifty years, advertise with pride that they have 20,000 engines in use—40,000 or 50,000 is considered some thing wonderful The "I. H.C." Gasolene Engine has been on the market less than seven years. Their sales for the past six months have averaged about 1000 per week. More than 175,000 of them are in actual use— and, better yet, giving the highest satisfaction. Everyone of them is an advertisement and one that makes sales of more " I.H.C.'s." What is true of tfiese engines throughout the civil ized world is true right here in Australia. Far more of these Engines are being sold in the Commonwealth than of any other make. They are being so generally called for because of the satisfaction they give in actual use, not on account of anything we say of them.
