LAMENESS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
LAMENESS IN HORSES. &nbsp; For lameness an examination in the stable is first necessary. A sound horse bears the weight equally on both fore- legs, alternately resting each hind leg. If it is noticed that be puts his weight on the heels laminitis may be suspec- ted, if on the toe, corns. The horse should next be trotted on a hard, level, clean surface, lameness is indicated by throwing weight on to the sound limbs to relieve the injured one. The head is used to balance the alteration in weight. Therefore, if lame in front, the head will be raised when the in- jured limb comes to the ground, and will be in its natural position when the sound limb comes down. If lame be- hind, the head will be lowered when the foreleg corresponding to the injur- ed limb comes to the ground. The off &nbsp; hind-leg and the near fore-leg will cor- respond. To examine the horse it is necessary to stand about 30 yards in front and on the near side, the horse's head being left free. The hor...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Hot winds have been very frequent &nbsp; this season in the south-east. Some of the barley and wheat crops have been blighted in patches by the high, hot winds. Caterpillars are in evidence among some of the barley and oat crops, and have done mischief. The season has been favorable for the pest. Judging by the quantity of hay that has been cut, building will go on for weeks to come.
THE RURAL PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
THE RURAL PROBLEM. &nbsp; Dealing with the rural problem, Mr. D. Gordon, M.L.C., of South Austra- lia, recently remarked: South Australia had reached a point in its history when something had to be done to put the rural industries on a definite basis. This State depended on its rural production to pay its way. Little of a practical nature had been done to restore the balance, or even to check the drift to the cities. Many things had been done to discourage the producers. Closer settlement, though generally in the interests of the coun- try and of increased population, had had a serious effect on the pastoral in- dustry, inasmuch as it meant the breaking up of high class herds and particularly of high class flocks. The net result of the producer's experi- ence was to show him that he was never safe from attack. The pastoral industry needed reasonable legislation and moderate taxation. The whole trouble was becoming increasingly in- teresting by reason of the war, because ther...
WIVENHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
WIVENHOE. Presbyterian Property. A meeting of Wivenhoe residents was held in thce &nbsp; Presbyterian Hall on Monday night to consider the best means of taking over the property, which is under offer &nbsp; to the residents of Wivenhoe. Mr. &nbsp; Barrowcliff presided. The Rev. H. &nbsp; Balcke put before the meeting the cost &nbsp; of the property, and offered it to the &nbsp; public of Wivenhoe for £220. Mr. O. &nbsp; G. Norton (Warden of Burnie) said he &nbsp; thought it was essential for the Wiven- &nbsp; hoe people to make an effort to secure the building. . Although the price stated was the full value of the pro- &nbsp; perty, he did not think the Wivenhoe &nbsp; people could do better. Mr. Burk and &nbsp; Mr. C. Kemp intimated that they thought the price was very fair. Mr. &nbsp; J. Redman moved that the Emu Bay &nbsp; Council be approached, to take over &nb...

PEACE AND PRODUCE THE PUZZLE OF PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
PEACE AND PRODUCE THE PUZZLE OF PRICES. Under this heading the "Mercan- tile Gazette" offers the opinion that prices of' produce will keep up for a year after the war, but that there will then be a drop. It gives the follow- ing reasons: The war has impoverished the peo- ples of Europe. There is the heavy &nbsp; burden of debt; there is the loss of capital due to the destruction of build- &nbsp; ings and plant, shipping, etc. Bri- &nbsp; tain is our best customer, and the national debt of Great Britain is stag- gering; the interest alone on the debt will amount to about £320,000,000 per annum, or 50 per cent more than the &nbsp; total revenue in 1913-14, the financial &nbsp; year prior to the outbreak of hostili- ties. It may be urged that the great- er portion of the debt is owing to the people of the United Kingdom, which &nbsp; is true enough, and that the interest will be paid to the people, but it will first be extracted from the ...

A &nbsp; photo of the quartette, with the little mites happy and smiling on the knees of their warrior protectors, has also been received, and on the reverse side is written "Souvenirs from the Hin- denburg line."
