DOESN'T KNOW. "I heard a chap in the train the other day declare that this was the greatest drought ever known in Australia, and that even if rain came now it would be ten years before we got over the effects of it. Good old pessimist; I've met him before. The pessimist doesn't know of the recuperative powers of the Aus tralian soil and the Australian pro ducer."-"Northerner," in "Table Talk."

The matter should be discussed sanely and settled with cool judgment." -" Mel bourne "Argus."

MEN WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
aMEN WANTED. " it is a desperate war, to win which, nail to vindiente the honor of our coun try, no stone must be left unturned. . We want re'eruits, for even if the Rus sians in the East and the French -and ourselves in the West, continue to be successful, the threat of large. trained forces coming over from England may have a vast influence, not only in bring ing about peace, but in the actual terms. "-General Smith-Dorrien.
REASONABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
REASONABLE. '' The present resources of the Allies in Europe are quite sufficient to cope with the business in hand and it would be folly to suggest anything. else. But 'it may well be said that Japanese inter vention, by shortening the infinite suf fering of the war, snakes it reasonable to nsk whether the interests of humanity would not behbest served by encouraging the idea.' "-Andr. Cheradame, in French Journal, "L'Illustration."
ENGLAND'S FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
ENGLAND'S FOOD. " Even if a complete blockade were es tablished round her coasts ", England would be able to maintain herself in abundance, though not in luxury, for quite a year, if foodstuffs were properly organised and substitutes for wheat ad mitted. But no such prospect need be considered. For all her vital needs the great producing. countries of the world are open to English buyers."-"S.M. Herald.''

VALUABLE TESTIMONY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
VALUABLE TESTIMONY. " Germany is still united, still mistress of every inch of her own soil, still feed. ing herself, still unbeaten, but she has had to make a great many economies, and particularly in the way of war munt. tlons. Finally, comes Sir John French's testimony as to the weakening of the aerman morale, and that testimony is most valuable, because few men can have more or better information on that point."-'-Sydney "Daily Telegraph."
GOSPEL OF HATE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
GOSPEL OF HATE. "'German intellect is my foul air. I breathe with difficulty in the neighbour. hood of this psychological uncleanness that has now become instinctive-an uncleanness which in every word and expression, betrays a German. A man lowers himself by frequenting the society of Germans. The Germans have not the faintest idea of how vulgar they are; but this. in itself is. the acme of vul garity. They are not even ashamed of being Germans."-Nietzsche.
UNIFORMED SPIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
. UNIFORMED SPIES. One of the most difficult aspects of the well-organised system of espionage which the Germans conduct this side of )ur trenches is the spy in uniform. ,. rom time to time descriptions are cir culated of officers who have obtained in *rmation and then disappeared. It is as common for spies dressed in the uni forms of British officers to appear in the trench lines as it is for "'French officers" or "Belgian soldiers" to ap pear in our own. "-An officer, in London `Times."

THE ORCHARD. IMPROVEMENT BY BUD SELBO TION. Drone Trees. The marked variations in the quan tity and quality of fruit borne bhyn-. .dividual trees of the same type were mentioned in the recent article, that in dicated the work that is being done in bud selection in California. These in dlividual variations must le clearly dis tinguished from variations, between types. For instance, in the typo of Washington Navel known as the stan. dard type in California, individual trees have been found that consistently bear large crops of high-grade. fruit, while other trees bear small quantities of in ferior . quality. The latter are known as "drones" from the fact that they require as much attention, expense, and care for maintenance as the profitable trees without giving commensurate reo, turns. .

L C. .Ridgway, at "Rockview," Old Junce, in con !function with the Agricultural Depart mont's Inspector for the district.

It was suggested at the time, how. ever, that the benefits derived from liming were greater than appeared at first sight. The total cost should not hbi debited against the Ilrst year's yields, as it was anticipated that, lina ing would result in increased returnsi over a period of three or four years, and, generally speaking,. especially in cases where the lime content was de ficient, considerable improvement would be ef...

MR. H. G. WELLS ON "SCIENTIFIC WAR." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
MR.: H. ti- WELLS ON S" 8CIENTIFIC, WAR" L Mr. H. G. Wells, in the course of an article contributed to the January "Windsor Magazine," says: "No doubt much ingenuity will stand between the Allies and the capture of Essen, which is the real heart of the nevr Germany we fight. But Creusot Sekneider, Armatrongs, Vickers-Maxim, are on their mettle, and the Allies are no longer lax. They are fighting, for their lives now, with better brains and bhtter men than Germany. .The Ger mans began, and the Allies will end, at their maximum of destructive efficiency. Strange dragons and wonderful beasts of steel will battle in Westphalia be fore the end, but the end will be the downfall of Essen and Kruppism for ever. U'pon the sea the wrarnings of the prophets have also been confirmed. The great ironclad, though still necessary for the control of the ocean, is no longer the unchallenged mistress- of the seas. Where is no perfect command of the seas any more. The mine and the subma rine, elusive a...

IMPOSSIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
IMPOSSIBLE. " It is only ignorance that could sug ge't that the British Navy could "dig nit'" the German fleet from its ports. The power of warships ceases at the shore, and land forces are needed to capture coast batteries, against - which ships are remarkably ineffective. This has been shown in this war by the fail tire of the French fleet to reduce the Aus trian fortress of Cattaro, and has been abundantly illustrated in history. Nor can warships advance through waters in fested with submarines, into estuaries defended by mines. Neither is bombard ment of the interned war-vessels possible, seeing that they lie well out of range l ehina their shore guns, and booms." Colonel II. Foster.
AFTER THE STORM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
AFTER THE STORM. "'While for centuries God has fore told the Day of Wrath and indicated that Hle will have to do with the preci pitation of its trouble upon humanity. Nevertheless Ho elsewhere shows that these troubles are the outgrowth of hu man wrong-doing, and that these dire penalties for sin would have wrecked our social and religious fabric long ago, had He not held back the storm of human passion and avarice until the end of this Age. Just as soon as that storm shall have taught humanity needed lessons and liquidated long-standing accounts, Mes siah 's Kingdom, with a clean slate, will be inaugurated.' -Pastor Russell, Lon don.
