JERSEY TREE KALE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 24 February 1899
JERSEY T.'.EE KALE. The manager of the Roseworthy Agri- . cultural College, South Australia, claims to have had great success with the Jersey tree kale as winter fodder for sheep and milking cattle, and his successful experi ments with the plant on soil .where . the average yearly rainfall is about 15 inches, is described as being likely to lead; to. its being extensively cultivated. ,? He states that with proper attention to cultivation 25 tons ner acre, of the kale can be raised in a season from successive cuttings of the plant. For early winter feedmgl the seed should bp sown on well prepared \ land immediately after the first soaking rains of autumn. Different systeins , of - raising the crops are adopted. Sowing the seed at the rate of. 41b . per, acre in drills;5ft apart is recommended, and. afterwards th^ning out the plants in the rows to a distance of 15in apart. On .land that is particularly clean and well, prepared, sow ing broadcast can be adopted; but the best plan is to...

THE TUBERCULIN TEST. .'. ,' ; There has been considerable doubt ex pressed recently in England and America , as to the reliability of the tuberculin test,, but a case in support is given by the 'Chronicle' (Adelaide), where a West , Australian buyer of ,20 heifers and bulls from South Australia made the taking. of delivery conditional upon the test, which resulted in the tuberculosis being . clearly found in animals whose outward appear ance gave every indication of perfect squndness.

The qualifications requisite for the -proper discharge' of vice-regal duties are very different now to what they were in the , olden^dayg when the Queen's representative v was u an- actual ruler and, as such, expected to formulate and work' out a policy! The 'Viceroy still has very considerable authority, but it is held in abeyance like Great Britain's munary sirengin, wnicn iiora sausDury declared to be ' great, but' peculiar, and not adapted to deal with matters of secondary importance.' The Governor has the right of refusing to tccept a Ministry which has the confidence of Parliament, but of course he never exer cises it directly.

Handling Wheat. SMALLER BAGS ADVOCATED. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 24 February 1899
i Handling v Wheat ji *'?' SMALLER BAGS ADVOCATED.1' :. (Melbourne ' Argus,' February 21.) ? ,'?'. , There. has been a good ideal .of .talk ' lately about tie elevator system of hand ' ling wheat and the shipment of the .pro ] duct in bulk, thus doing away with ,the ' cost of providing bags, an item which farmers find very heavy, more . especially when low prices rule. But there are ,j many difficulties in the way of establish :j ing.the system in this colony, and eveaif i the expense of erecting elevators were | gone to it is doubtful if vessels could be ? obtained to taJte tne wneat away in a loose i condition. Wheat is forwarded in bulk — | thai is, unbagged — from some American '?? ports to England, specially fitted vessels - being used for the purpose, but j trade . in this respect has not ? assumed very large proportions, and 1 by far the greater portion of the | American wheat is forwarded in bags. As !a matter of fact, there is a certain amount of danger, even in a short voy...

LAUNCESTON PRODUCE MARKET. Launceston, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 24 February 1899
LAUNCESTON PRODUCE MARKET. Launceston, Thursdav. The produce market daring the week has been fairly lively, owing to a good quantity of grain coming forward.

The best price obtainable for milling wheat is 2/3. No business has yet been done in English barley, but it is expected to come in at about 3/. Grey peas arrive in small lots, and are quoted at 2/9 to 3/. Abso lutely nothing is doing in hay or chaff, there being no margin for export. Pota toes have fallen to £3, owing to a large Bupply coming forward. There are also too many inferior sorts in the market. Supplies of butter are exceedingly limited, and prices are unchanged. Good bacon is in request.
EMU BAY PRODUCE MARKET. Burnie, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 24 February 1899
EMU BAY PRODUCE MARKET. ,' Burnie, Thursday. ' A' fair amount of business was trans acted in the produce market to-day. Quotations .for potatoes opened at £4/5/ for prime sampleB. but the market weak ened : towards the close, and best offers ranged from £3/17/6 to £4/2/6. The bulk of sales effected were made at £4. Ar rivals were not very large, and the ship ments this week will not reach last week's total. By the bs Easby, which sailed this morning for Sydney via Devonport, 541 bags of potatoes were shipped, and as the Taieri will not be in port till Saturday morning, her cargo will probably be between 600 and 700 bags. If the vessel had arrived to-day her total would have been about 200 less. Quotations for other lines of produce are without ohange.

Clearing Away the Bar. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 24 February 1899
Clearing Away the Bar. ul' ^ ! TO THE EDITOR. ?Sir,— Some time'agtfwenet&i'thaVflie Launceston Marine Board would be fol lowing our example , and discarding the ladder dredge' for a suction pump. Now that 'the Agnew has established its fame by sucking up stones and blacksmith's hammers, would it not be as well to give it a start in a public house bar— that is, if it would not. be. likely to. suck up the tumblers and bottles and leave the liquid in the casks. I expect Devonport, will have to take a prohibition order out against it, as there is 12ft 6in on the bar now, and if the suction still continues, there' ''will be 6ft 6m m another' three years'.- — Tours, etc., / NEPTUNE.

Trinity College Musical Exams. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 24 February 1899
rrinity College Musical Exams. , TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — In Wednesday's issue 'of your paper there appears a local on ' Successful Devonport Students,' as regards one por tion of which you have been misinformed. Amongst the list of successful students the!'name of Master P. Bovill is men tioned as being a pupil of Mrs Maomastcr. This is not correct, as the candidate was my pupil at the time of his passing the examination, and had been for some con siderable time previously. Why Mrs Macmaster has persistently stated Master Bovill to be her pupil I should like very much to know; perhaps it is because he the entries closed, more than three months prior to the exam., but as he was very soon after that tune placed, under my tuition the statement would still be incorrect. As a matter of strict honor Mrs Macmaster should also claim another' ^rapil who unfortunately failed through extreme nervousness, resulting from a recent attack of illness, and who had also been her pupil, but was transfer...
