DISTRIBUTION OF SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail and Central Mallee Advertiser — 5 February 1915

DISTRIBUTION OF SEED WHEAT. The first intention of the Go vernment when it determined to assist drought-stricken farmers to obtain seed wheat for next season was to purchase Lie wheat and dis tribute it to the farmers in need of relief. In a quiet way between 400,000 and 500,000 bushels was secured, and. then for various reasons the Government deter mined to cease buying, and to give assistance in orders, which the recipients could use for the pirchase of their own supplies. The wheat that was purchased will, however, be used to satisfy requirements as far as it will go, -nd its distribution commenced nhis weeak. The A?gricuitural Department iss'ued directions last week that farmers who hold orders from the Seed WVheat Boards for the supply of seed should forward the orders as early as possi'ole to the Secretary of Lauds or the Director of Agri culture, intimating the railway station to which they :eq-ire the wheat to be consigned.

With prosperous condlitionS existing six months ago, all classes of stock rose to boom prices. The pastoral and rural outlook was flourishing. Then the calm follow: d.

What is Capital? [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail and Central Mallee Advertiser — 12 February 1915

What is Capital ? [Br AGRICOLA.] Most people will say that there is not much trouble in knowing what Capital.is-the trouble being in getting it. But it is not so easy to tell what Capital is and what is merely wealth. -It is true all Capital is wealth, but it is not correct to say that all wealth is Capital. People often say that labor is the pcor man's Capital and go on to argue that a poor ma: has as much right to live on his labor as a rich man on his Capital ; and so he has-if he can If a man can eat his labor and live on it, by all means let him do so he will soon have to take up a hole or two in his belt, or live on love if he depended on labor alone, for even a savage must have some Capital in the form of spears. bows and arrows, and nets for catching fish or birds. Again you will hear people say that laud is Capital, intelligence is Capital, etc.-but neither are capital. A man would perish on the rnmot fertile land on earth Lf he depended on it for Capital. Again, you will f...
