Expeditionary Force. A Visit to the Camp. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 17 September 1914

Expeditionary Force. A Visit to the Camp. On Sunday last a party of Balan ites paid a visit per motor to the camp at Broadme:i<lows. Leaving Ballan shortly after nine o'clock, one could not help noticing the varying description of the country. Things look fairly well to Myrniong, but they then grow gradually worse until Sydenham ia reached, when they again show somo improvement. At Keilor the party stopped for a con siderable time and had a stroll along a nice trout stream, where a number of anglers wore trying their luck. After dinner the journey was re sumed. Surmounting the hill at Keilor, a tnrn was taken to the left, a cross country road being taken which cut down the mileage. The camp was reached shortly after one o'clock, comparatively few visitors being then about. Going in at the main entrance one is struck with the splendid mannqf in which everything is laid out, perfect order prevails, but it would be a sticky spot in wet weather. Aftsr wandering quietly along ...

A Country's Natural Wealth. The production of a country's soil is the most solid foundation for its wealth; and Australia, being a laud of primary productions, owns a sure foundation upon which to build her future greatness. This ^xiaxim has long beun recognised in the Old World, and Germany has benefited by the knowledge and raised her farming to a very high standaid; also the authorities have fully realised (ho importance oF agriculture, and have encouraged the rural population to pursue it and adopt the most advanc ed and economical methods possible. Prince Von Bulnw, in his book en titled Imperial Germany^ says:—"As in times of war, industry is dependent on the buying power of agriculture, the productive power of agriculture is a vital question for the whole na tion. Countries whore agriculture flourishes, countries where at loast a j great part of the population is en- J gaged in tilling the soil, where agri- | culture supplies tho home market in part, and provides a largo port...

Potato Culture. [From the "Journal of Agriculture."] [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 24 September 1914

Potato Culture. [From the "Journal of Agriculture."! There is but one method by which , potatoes may be selected for seed, s„ I that the standard of triteness of tvpo j and yielding capacity may bo main tamed unimpaired, and that is, by selecting the seed intended for the. following season's p'anting out of (lie held crop while the crop is green ami growing.
