VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 21 May 1914
VARIOUS VIEWS OF5"PROFIT. Large crops are not always profit able crops, and the' finest looking` ani. nmal "does fot 'always giv "ethe largest net return. For generations we have ibeen-taught and urged to grow bigger crops, unminidful of the-relation of Ini creased cost to increased production. -The value of increased production at. :ways. depends upon whether or nob 'It" is economically -secured,- i.e., upon whether the marg!n of profit an acre is increased or not,. Another important factor always to be kept in mind is the relation which: any part of the farm enterprise bears to the whole. A -crop judged by 'it self might be profitable and yet the system might be unprofitable. For. example, timothy hay might prove a .good crop in any one. year, or even two or three years,.but eventually the yield must decline, because a system of farming with this crop alone would not be likely to maintain fer tility, so that the system could not be called profitable. On the other hand, clover migh...

THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 21 May 1914
THICK OR THIN SOWING. The: quality of seed' which should be sowin depends ,on a-number of -cir cumstances, such as character of the soil, Its- moisture, freedom from weeds;, size, .germinating power, age of the seed, and agdin on the time of sowing, the nature of the plant, method of sowing, depth; etc. All these factors have to' be considered; but in general - we think it may be said that seed is sown more often too thickly than the reverse, .especially when the operation is performed by hand. It is a waste of seed, and, moreover, detrimental in so far as it tends to produce weakly plants, sub ject to 'disease, and also to -produce cereals that "lodge," a great source of loss to cereal growers. The age of the seed is an important factor. Old seed has lost some. of its germinating power, so new,. seed should be used. Grouchy Parent: No, sir, my daugh ter shall not marry you.! Suitor: But your daughter filshes to, sir, and she told me just now that you would deny -her nothing. Grouch...

CORRESPONDENCE. RE FISHERIES ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 25 May 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. fE FIS-ERIES ACT, TO THE EDITOR OF TIHE GUAHDIAN. iEr,-aThe flishernen on the Murray i.er are ful l of complaints. In the tirst instance they pick out a likely place to catch fish. When they are seetled down another tisherman comes and encroaches. I do not know whether there is any clause to protect this particular sport, as they term it. I would suggest that each tisher man receives ten miles, and picks his own spot.. That would give them encourage. nment. Bear in mind these are men who Pay for a license. A good many are hshing on the Murray with no licence, and fishing with liooki and line, and at the same time using drumu nes, crosslines, &c., and in the close season. It is not fair to those who pay for a licence every rear, and stand down during close season. rhe no-licence men are defying the law. They are too cunning for the police. Roping you will insert this letter to warn mnd protect the fisherman.-.Ia mn &c., FISHERMAN.
