AUSTRALIAN NATIVES' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 March 1914
AUSTRALIAN NATIVES' ASSOCIATION, No great questions have been discussed at the annual conferenc of the Austra. llan Natives' Association this year, There are strongly marked lssues in politico, and the more strongly marked the party issues the more chary is the A.N.A, of taking part in them, It is part of the penalty of admitting mon of all phases of thought into its ranks that the A.N.A. may educate the oleo tore on national quoetiono, but may not carry thpm Into effect, As soon as great questions pass tho educational phase and get within the ambit of the politician, party views govern them and the educational force is pushed aslde, The A NA. could do good work on many Foderal questions, but because the party lines are so otriotly drawn, and there is such divided opinion within the Assooiation, its power for good is limited, This year's record of the Assooiabion is one of continued progrees, It s not so long ago sooce the Board of Directors was making efforts for a membership of 20...

I am the most widely, stopped-at tonio nlan of the present day; and yet veniture to say, I know as mubch ,Iout forelgn countrloi as the mar tho has walked round the world.

AGRICULTURE. SHOULD SEED POTATOES BE CUT? [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 March 1914
AG RIC ULTUR E, SHOULD SEED POTATOES BE CUTP The almost universal practice df po. Ito growers in this country is to out eed potatoes down to two or three Yes, thus decreasing the costa o lanting, which is' always heavy in Towing potatoes unless you do as ome people have been known to do, ttempt to grow a small patch from he _potato peelings, Potate growers n Europe who have made this a iatter of special study apparently void this method, They plant what hey call big seed, usually from 1500 o 2000 pounds an acre. This seems xtravagant, yet many large growers ollow this method, using even more. According to the report of Consul. leneral Mason, the same method is dopted in Germany. Many of the nost highly educated and progressive armors plant as much as 1.960 lbs., ir 36 bushels of 60 lbs,, per acre. Wh'lile terr orf yum rrjndwar ,rul do ww o risk such heavy planting on tho vhole field it would certaili be ad. risable to try it on a part of it, or II a few rows, We believe there is oun...
