Correspondence. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondence under this heading. -Ed.] TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPKE3S. Sir,-Your article in a recent issue of the " Powlett Express" suggesting that sugar beet and flax growing should be tried in the Powlett district should commend itself to all local well wishers and practical people. Our local agricultural society has done excellent work since its inception ; it has held several highly successful shows at Dalyston, and has every reason to be proud of its record, young as it is. Pera 'nally, I think the _ formation of an agricultural society is one of the most masterly strokes that has been performed since the State Government decided upon developing the Powlett River coal fields. But, although splen did work has been done by our agri cultural society, it has a still brighter future before it if it can induce its members to pay serious attention to the cultivation ot sugar Deet ana tlax.

SCIENCE AND THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 11 June 1915
SCIENCE AND THE FARMER, j i Many farmers have au erroneous idea and judgment concerning science and scientific agriculture. Somehow they have acquired tho notion lliat to bo sciont?fic is to be theorotical, and not practical, whereas, the exact opposite is tho ease. The scientfic man cons tantly limits Ilia belief and his action to proved Tacts; to the laws and prin ciples that govern facts. Nothing is true with hiui until it is proved true. He has no room for traditions or no tions handed down from father to son. He refuses to be governed by such consideration. What do the facts at farming teach? is his constant study. Ho had learned to bo s broad mini, con siderate of what otliers, as well as himself, know. He realises the danger of being narrow and shutting his judg ment and action up to conclusions drawn from such a mental condition. Th0 scientific man always looks upon the farm and its problems as being vastly bigger than he is; the unscienti fic man always considers himself to...

It was quite dark, and on entering tho trench at the head of my party I heard someone talking in a low voice. I crept forward as quietly as I could and saw what 1 imag ined must be a doctor supporting the head of a wounded man. I called upon him to surrender, and he held up a cru cifix towards me, so I knew he must be a priest. "Tho. priest was.giving absolution to a dying Bavarian who expired a few minntes later.
