TINPLATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
TINPLA1ES. The South Wales tinplate trade has made but little progress towards the restoration of pre-war conditions. The release of large numbers of men was asked for long before Christmas, but the operatives have not yet reached home in any considerable numbers, and very few additional mills have been re started. According to advices received by the last mail, the price of Bessemer standard cokes has been maintained at 32/0 a box for local or Allied consump tion, but 40/- had been secured from foreign merchants. The Eastern mar kets, however, have been encroached upon by American makers, who at first demanded exceedingly high rates, but ultimately came into line with the con trolled rates of "Welsh manufacturers. Some European buyers, who were un able to obtain their supplies from Wales, paid as much as 140/- a box to American producers. 'For the year 1918 exports from Wales totallel 223,509 tons, -against. 177,383 tons in 1917 and 321,054 tons in 1916. France took 47,745 ton's, A...

HILL END MINING IN FULL SWING AGAIN Milling is in full swing again after the Easter holidays, writes our Mudgee correspondent. The Amalgamated Tri ll liters have had a trial clean up, and retorted the whole of their amalgam, which has resulted in :5i)0 o/,s. of gold. This is a splendid result, and tends to prove that there is still very rich and payable gold in Hawkins' Hill at a greater depth than is now being worked, in fact, the deeper the workings are proved in the mine, the better arc (lie results.

WOOL TRADE PROSPECTS IN OTHER COUNTRIES Australian Fine Wools are Meeting with Excellent Demand in England. Pastoral Outlook. j Wo regret being unable to give any reassuring news in this connection, write John Bridge and Co., Ltd. Slight rains have fallen in different parts, but in the aggregate they are inappreciable, and the losses in sheep are becoming more and more general. American Textile Trade. As late as the third week in March sales of British Government wool were still being held in. America, and the prices realised were on a high basis. Tho demand mainly runs upon choice, fine wools, which are described as moving off exceedingly well. The trade, however, is not without its troubles, and many labor riots have taken place. The United States domestic clip, on the other hand, is not meeting with tho same demand as the fine Australia] wools; in fact, there seemed to be little desire to operate in them at the time. The Home Trade. Exceptionally high prices are said to be ruling...
SOME CATTLE THRIVE ON PRICKLY PEAR [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
I SOME CATTLE THRIVE ON PRICKLY PEAR Would it pay to buy starving cattle to put on prickly pear country? The question was raised recently, and Mr. J. H, M-cDonald, who has a. grazing pro perty in the Moree district, giveB his views and experience. A lot of cattle, he says, are now going on to pear country. If cattle are used to it, it is all right. If poor cattle are put on it, there would be a big chance of losing some. Some cattle scour badly on pear, and do no good. In any mob of cattle there will always be a few |;hat will not do: any good on it. He has seen cattle come out of pear fat. One man in his neighborhood has had 300,head of starvers - on pear " for the past. three months, and all are still alive. In nearly all cases, cattle will live on it,; and-a lot will fatten. The pear>, adds Mr. McDonald; is splendid fped if it is singed for the cattle. There is no doubt tha,t after cattle havje been in pear country it is easier to clear it of the pest, if sufficient. animals'h...

THE PROGRESSIVE FARMER. Agricultural Societies in Great Britain "CO-OPERATION" IS SLOGAN. Farmers Can Bay Cheaper and Sell More Economically than previously. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
THE PROGRESSIVE FARMER.' :T^ Agricultural Societies in Great Britain "CO-OPERATION" IS SLOGAN. Farmers Can Bay Cheaper and Sell More Economically than previously. Among the factors that are certain to have a share in the reconstruction of Great Britain's rural industries is co-operation. Already many smail "societies" and "clubs" have been formed in different parts of the coun try, and in other cases existing socie ties have immensely increased the.:r activities during the period of the war, but a period of marked progress is ex pected in the near future, and it is therefore of interest to us in Australia to know what is going on. Ideas of agricultural co-operation no doubt dif fer considerably in Australia from those entertained in Great Britain, for the British societies are of much greater variety than most of us have any con cep'. icn of, and in recent years there have been movements in quite novel directions, some of which, however, may perhaps be suggestive, even after every a...

COMMERCE & BUSINESS Good Prices Obtained for Late Season Wool. BETTER QUALITY THAN USUAL 717,000 Bales Already Appraised and about 40,000 more will Conclude Season. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
COMMERCE €> BUSINESS Good Prices Obtained lor Late Season Wool. BETTER QUALITY THAN USUAL 717,000 Bales Already Appraised and about 40,000 more will Conclude Season. The catalogues of appraisement No. 58, which was held last week, although indicating the approaching close of the season in many ways, are l>v no means unattractive, and include a large pro portion of well grown lines. In this respect the offerings as a whole seem to be a big improvement upon what it is usual to expect at this period of the season in normal times. The explanation of this lies, states the ■Sydney Wool Selling Brokers' Associa tion, -in the fact that under the pre .scheme conditions it was found a wise policy to hold back faulty and very burr}- sorts till the end of t?ie season, -when they, as a rule, fare better through not having to face the competi tion of free well grown lines, and through an extra demand often met •with at the end of the season from users who were still short of require ments, ...

NATIONAL GOVERNMENT HAS HELPED FARMERS Attorney-General Trenchantly Criticises Speculators in State Wheat Scrip. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
NATIONAL GOVERNMENT HAS HELPED FARMERS Attorney-General Trenchantly Criti cises Speculators in State Wheat Scrip. Addressing a meeting of National supporters at Condobolin, the Attorney General (-Mr. D. R. Hall) said that the Minister for Agriculture had been suc cessful in every way in his efforts to conserve the interests of the farmer3. All the wheat-producing States ha»i agreed that bulk handling of wheat was necessary. The other States had only talked about it, whilst New South Wales now had silos erected at all the leading wheat-producing centres. Quite recently, said ;Mr. Hall, an ef fort had been made to injure the in terests of the farmers, by suggesting that the balance of the 1916-1917 wheat crop should be used as pig feed. All sorts of falsehoods, inspired by would be speculators, had been spread in sup port of this proposal. The fanners re tained an interest in this wheat to the extent cf over £1,500,000.

Of Interest to Women. Dance Frocks. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
By Mother of Pearl . Dance Frocks. The seriousness of the influenza epi demic having put a veto on all social gatherings, our thoughts on what 33 correct wear for evening parties have not taken any definite directions. How ever, other countries have all passed through the ordeal far more severely than has been the case in Australia, and the world of fashion remains to-day where it did before, with its allure ments perhaps more tempting to the feminine mind than ever. Normal life will be resumed as soon as ever the present necessary restrictions are withdrawn, and with it a knowledge of fashion's latest fads will be welcome. Very dainty dance frocks for young girls are arranged with bodices consist ing of a deep corselet and shoulder straps of silver tissue, with ivory ninon shoulder draperies and short sleeves. The skirts are composed usually of four or five flounces of fine ivory-white lace, mounted on a foundation of net over satin. These flounces are placed one above the other, b...

A PROBABLE SOLUTION OF LABOR PROBLEM Mixed Farming Advocated Distribution of Work Throughout the Year Results in Mose Profit. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
A PROBABLE SOLUTION OF LABOR PROBLEM Mixed Farming Advocated Distribution of Work Throughout the Year Results in Mose Profit. "The relation of live stock t\> fer tility has ever been an important on p. It is a generally accepted fact that the farms in a given community which have the most livestock produce the largest crops. When live stock is not kept in any extensive way, naturally the greater part of the products of the farm must be sold, and unless some provision is made to make good the drain upon the. land it cannot be expected that fertility will be maintained. It must be admit-. ted that in most instances adequate provision is not made. Moreover, the feeding of the great bulk of the crops to livestock and the careful utilisation of the manure will not maintain fertil ity save when concentrated feeds are purchased and fed in a large way, or other replacement is made of the mineral elements carrie.d away in mineral products and carcases." The quotation is from a recent bull...
"GO OFF THE LAND, YOUNG MAN!" [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 May 1919
" GO OFF THE LAND, YOUNG MAN!" It is curious, yet a fact, that nearly all the sons of our farmers have left the plough for the pit. "&lt;xo on the land, young man," is a slogan that has echoed throughout ■ the cities and the country nor ever so long, yet there are very few instances where a farmer's son in the nearer districts to the town can be found following the avocation of his.father. The big wages (compared with that received by the farmer) and the certainty of it, is too alluring for the average youth of the eountry to resist. Some of the leaders of the local-miners* lodges were reared on tho land, yet they have seen fit to stray from the path of the furrow. Unionism with them was unknown until they en tered the pit, yet to-day we find them the strongest unionists. "Go to;the., mine, young man," seems to be some thing more to the belief of the born and bred farmer's son.— -Ceaanoftk Eagle. •

THE GORGE SCHEME Legislative Action First Needed. NEW ZEALAND'S PRACTICAL METHOD. Creation of Electric Power Board for Northern Districts Means Success. I (By A. J. Pollack.) I Ihe enthusiastic support or the people of the coast and tableland for the Gorge hydro-electric scheme, and a fuller ap preciation of its possibilities, are daily becoming more marked. AH this will not avail much, however, if effort, how ever enthusiastic and well meant, is not directed in the most effective qudrtey. Two important questions must be satisfactorily answered. These are:— (1) What new legislative action to authorise the initiation and com pletion of the scheme should be advocated? And (■2) What is the most practicable means of raising the capital ex penditure neees-sary in the con struction of the works? It is necessary that answers to thesu pertinent queries should be seriously at tempted and plainly stated. I am encouraged to answer the firat question by an examination of the ro sults of the exp...
