CONVERSATION BY POST. Mil. Edison has succeeded in perfecting another wonder ful invention. Hitherto the phonograph has been little better than an interesting scientific toy (reflects the St. James?

New South Wales as a Wheat-producing Country. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 16 January 1888

New South Wales as a Wheatpro ducing Gountry. On examining the tables showing the average quan tity of wheat produced per acre, we are surprised to find our colony standing out so well. Here are the figures, viz. : — Mean average 1887 from 1873 to 1887. New Zealand ...... 24.89 ... 26.09 Tasmania ? 17.91 ... 18.19 N. S. Wales ? 17.37 ... 14.81 Victoria ? 11.49 ... 12.02 Western Australia 12.25 ... 11.54 Queensland ? 3.12 ... 10.37 South Australia ... 7.73 ... 8.16 We think our readers must express surprise at this list. We find that 1886 was far and away the worst year that this colony has had foe wheat from 1879, the yield being only 10.45 bushels per acre, or about 3 bushels below any other year during the last fifteen years. The quantity produced in 1886 was only 2,402,057, leaving a deficiency of 3,675,383 bushels. In 1885 we produced 3,927,273 bushels, leaving a deficiency of only 2,711,876 bushels.

OUR COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 16 January 1888

:; OUR COLONY. The protectionists still sound loud trumpets in favor of their policy, while the freetraders hang on doggedly to theirs. The protectionists have many strong strings to their bow, but we feel certain that the freetraders have stronger and better re tsons for their views. Increase of population in a colony is one -l' the soundest grounds of prosperity ; for the peopl ; will not go and remain in any colony if they can do Wetter elsewhere. The people are not fools — they cannot be misled by idle talk — they can only be brought to and. kept in the colony by the greater benefits to be gained by so settling there. Let us see how we compare with Victoria in the matter of population. We see at page 131 in ' The Wealth and Progress of New South Wales ' : ' The largest increase of population in any one year occurred in 1885, when, owing to the depression prevailing in some of the neighbouring colonies, large numbers of adult males flocked to New South Wales in search of a liveli...

It is to be so high that both the Medditerranean and Dead Sea may be seen from the top. A number of bells will be placed in the tower. In digging the foundations seven Chris tian graves were found together, with an inscription in Greek, iii which the word 'Stephanus' could be deciphered.

AUSTRALIAN SHEEP HUSBANDRY. CHAPTER I—AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 February 1888

AUSTRALIAN SHEEP HUSBANDRY. CHAPTER I ? AUSTRALIA. Australia is essentially a wool-producing country* If we compare the growth of her manufacturing and pastoral pursuits with those of any other country, say America, we find that the former have by no means kept pace with the latter ; and although the manufacturing industries of Australia have un doubtedly increased and multiplied in a manner I most gratifying to all patriots, they cannot jet be even momentarily compared to the pastoral interests of the country. Since the year 1810, when only 167 lbs. of wool were exported, up to the year 1879, when 287,757,934 lbs. of wool found their way to ! foreign markets,. the large increase of wool grown, 1 and capital invested in this business, are only to be J compared to the rapid increase of manufactures of all sorts in North America ; and, from being a com paratively unknown place, Australia has, in & short, I time, achieved the proud position of the greatest I wool-supplier of th...

The Situation in Europe. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 February 1888

The Situation in Europe. The simultaneous publication iu Berlin, Vienna, and Pesth of the treaty entered into in 1S79, by. Austria and Ger many, defines the European situation with tolerable accuracy at last. In Bismarck's hands ' the pen,' as illus trated in treaties, has been, if not ' mightier than the I sword.' yet certainly quite as potent an instrument. His adroit use of it on this, as on previous occasions, is spe cially to be noted. It is produced at a moment when, as well as giving pause to Russia, it will be apt to act most opportunely as a cooler on the courage of the nation whom circumstances have tended to placa in the position of Rus- l I sia's natural ally. The certainty now that Austria and '- Germany mean to stand shouldei.' to shoulder against any aggressive movement upon either on the part of Russia, and the terms by which they are equally bound in the case of an attack from Franco, will, it is to' be thought, either I indefinitely postpone a general European dist...

OUR OWN COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 February 1888

OUR OWN COLONY. Last mouth we gave some interesting figures, showing how New South Wales, compared with all the other colo nies as a wheat-prod ucing colony. At per acr«, we found she stood third out of the seven, being beaten 'y New Zealand and Tasmania, The average yield per n ;rc for 1887 is given at 17.37 bushels, with a mei.ii av- rage of 14.81 ; showing that, taking the colony as a wh'»le, the year 1887 yielded nearly three bushels per :icre more than the average. Hence, it must have been a good yo:ir among formers for quantity. Unfortunately the price f ii very low. and ranged from 3s Dd to 4s .id for a long time. On looking iuto tlus matter a little closer, we find that the Bathurst district stands almost as a happy medium of the wheat-producing districts of the colony — the moan average from 1881 to 1887 being 13.5 bushels per acre against 14.81 for the whole colony as slated above. Last year's return shows 16.4 as the yield, or just 3 more than the mean ave ;age — almost t...
