CRIME IN THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 February 1899
CRIME IS THE COLONIES. Thk scathing denunciation of rice and crime in Australia which the Bishop of Ballarat indulged in at the meeting of the Anglican Church Congress a few months ago created something more than a passing sensation. That there was a good deal of truth in the Bishop's statements was generally admitted, but the force of the deliverance was largely discounted by the highly colored picture he presented to the public. Statistics of crime which have recently been com piled in New' Sonth Wales afford fur ther denial to the sweeping charges made by Dr Thornton, and present our own Colony in a most favorable light. For instance, we stand lowest in the percentage of suicides, our record being 7.7 per 100,000 inhabitants, whilst West Australia is highest with 17.5 ; Queensland, 15.9 ; New South Wales, 11.8 ; Victoria, 11.8 ; New Zealand, 9.4; South ;Anstralia, 8.7- Outside Australia the snicide record is higher, if we except Ireland, where it stands at 2.4. In England it is 8...
TO MAKE DAIRYING SUCCESSFUL. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 February 1899
TO MAKE DAIRYING SUCCESSFUL.1 No matter what breed of cows is used; nor how perfect the dairy appliances, n-r dairy will be a success without the right; kind of dairyman. More depends upon|: securing the right' breed of dairyman than! anything else. Ho must be intelligent,!, studious, and willing to work. When! such a man goes into the dairy business,!, the first thing should be to secure tho1 right sort of a dairymaid as a helper. He' must then get as good cows as he can: ' afford to buy, using them simply as a; '?? basis from which to start, testing the1 individual merits of each animal, and' breding only the best, so that by the lawj of selection he will be continually weeding! , out the less profitable annuals and raising! . the standard of his herd. -? ;
ABOUT A PIG'S NOSE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 February 1899
ABOUT A PIG'S NOSE. The nose of the pig is an index of its', nature and condition (remarks the ' Far-; mer and Stockbreeder '). The shape and texture show that it is designed for mm-!, zling, for rooting, and for overturning:' things, and this ' is the nature of the-; brute' to perfection. Tho condition of the - animal is in many ways shown in thenose.*- ' In the healthy pig the nose is moist, cool,' r_ and pink in color. To the touch it is elas-j ' tic. In disease it changes in appearance; '?? becoming pallid or purplish, dry, hot, andi ' rigid, or else flabby. Many an experienced) ? breeder can tell at a glance the general}.'1 condition of a pig from the condition of itej:: nose. When your swine grow listless,';,' and do less nuzzling than usual, andgeemj - to be dozing and sleeping more than-., usual, inspect their noses, and you are! likely to find in them the indications of; . fever and other troubles. \ '-?

For the Fanners. ? PROLIFIC 'WHEAT. Mr Kilcnllen,- a well-known wheat grower of Berriwillock, Victoria, has re ported to tb.e Minister of Agriculture on the trial of samples of Queen's Jubilee and Ward's Prolific which he obtained from h' Mr M'Alpine, the pathologist.

Thep- Queen's Jubilee yielded at the rate of 37 r bushels per , acre; AVard's Prolific, 25jj: bushels. Both came into car during the|- hot winds and heavy frosts in Septembers: and .October, but neither was in the leasts affected, while other wheat which earedfr' at the same time. was badly tipped.

BRIGHTEN THE STABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 February 1899
BRIGHTEN THE STABLE. Apart from the convenience of a well- 3 lighted stable, its importance from a h hygienic point of view canhardly be over-si estunated. It is false economy to save ,'; tho price of a few windows at the cost of '?& the health of the horses, and there is no f reason why a stable should not be as well v lighted as a dwelling house. Old stables, ;j which havo been constructed with too 'i few windows, can be considerably bright- f, - ened by the liberal use of whitewash on )?''. walls and ceiling, with the additional advantage of cleaning and purifying the -y surroundings.

Owing to the character of the season, the scarcity of sacks, and the low prices in the world's markets, it is probable that many stacks will remain unthreshed for some time, thus reducing very considerably the volume of wheat to be handled in the near future. Barley: Some splendid parcels are offering on the market, and heavy orders are in iand on Australian account ; as these all' run on the best qualities only, a hardening ten dency is apparent for such lines. The medium and somewhat discolored samples are not meeting with much favor ; local maltsters are endeavoring to keep prices well down, hence the tune is ...
