THE TRADES HALL COUNCIL. Sib-The Socialistic speakers may say apything at the moment, but they have not the slightest intention to abide by what they say. Mr Fisher is reported to have said in Horsham that any party of men, joining themselves into a anion, are entitled to all the benefits held out by the act for preference to unionists However, in practice, they shove the Independent Workers' Union away from all privileges, Mr Hannan, M.P., last week, when before the Prime Minister re 6,000 unemployed, took objebtion to Mr Packer as representative of the Li beral ^Workers Union, and said " The 7 rades Hall Council is the only body qualified to speak on the unemployed question" Sir, this is plain talk in regard to what is mean' by preference, and any further comment is unnec essary How much longer will we ptand to be fooled by Fisher and Co? -Yon' s, etc Nhill.

The value of being ab!e to swim was once more d&lt; menstrated.- Mr McQueen a-d Mr McNeil were both strong swimmers, particularly the latter. If they had not been, they would have beeu d.iowned, as assistance could not have reached them until they were "well settled." Mr McNeil had to divest himself of his overcoat when in the water, and assuring one another that they were alright they struck out for the shore, which, notwithstanding that they were impeded by their clothes and boots, they reached safely It was a coincidence that Mrs -?IcQupen, who was quite recently married, came down to the lake wi*h Miss Heard just in time to see the boat ...
WHEAT SELECTION [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 26 June 1914
WHEAT SELECTION It; is generally and widely recog - nised that sj far as cultivation methods aie concerned in the growing of wheat and other cereals, the Wim* mera farmers are in the van of agriculturalists- In fallowing, thor ough cultivation, and conservation of moisture, they impi'ove upon the methods of other States when they migrate thither By the use of di ills and using the correct quantity of superphosphate, as ascertained by observations of results extending over a number of years in this pro vince, it would seem that the apex of production had qeen reached Where then, or in what direction shall wo turn or experiment to get increased yields.

The club is indebted to Mr Schmidt for his generosity in allowing the traps to be placed on his property Secret tary Eowley carried out his duties well E.

THE ECONOMICAL PIG. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 26 June 1914
THE ECONOMICAL PIG. j The pig is the most economical of : all animals. It has been fo.ind in ; America that of what a, horse eats j 52 per cent, goes to waste, 44 per cent, of the food consumed by cattle is similarly lost and 32 per cent of all that sheep take into their stom achs. But only 12 per cent, of what a pig: eats is wasted. Of the food eaten by a pig 52 per cent, goes to make growth, while a sheep utilises onl/ 25 per cent of its sustenance for growing, which, of course, means the production of meat. These figures are obtained from recent experiments made by Government experts, who find, as a result of their study, that the pig has what they call "economic superiority"" even over poultry. This means that it produces more; meat in proportion to its weight, and the animal weighs more in proportion to . the amount of food it consumes. It was found that S4 per cent of the carcase of a pig is used as meat, 75 Per cent., of a bullock, and 51 Pcr cent of a sheep. The pig seems to...
