DAIRY PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
DAIRY, PRODUCE. ' ''No change worthy of note . has taken place in . the butter market since our last report. In London, Australian first grade has become a shade more popular, but prices re main as last quoted. There is hardly as much inquiry on spot for export parcels at 86/_, the ruling price for first grade butter buyers being dis posed to look for concessions, but tlie lo'cal demand continues good. Some di'tnculty, however, is found in clear augrpsecond and third grades at satis factory prices. . Several of the large nfanufacturers have kept the local market firm by their demands for winter supplies, but the orders on Lbndon account are only moderate. It is not likely that there will be any material alteration in the butter situation for two or three-weeks- yet. Meanwhile,- supplies continue to come in merrily. London quotations are: Australian Salted, 100/; unsalted, 102/ to 104/ ; New Zealand, 10(5/. These prices are n, long way below those for Danish, which has ad vanced, and...

SUSSEX-STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
SUSSEX-STREET. With the prevalence of finer weather conditions there is a better feeling in the produce market, and the one thing " the Street" hopes we shall not get is more rain, at least for the present. Maize is keeping firm, with a tendency to advance, and chafl' is going off at better prices, though there is too little really choice coming forward. There has been something of a spurt in oats, which often rise in sympathy . with advancing prices for maize, but there is at present nothing in the -demand for maize to justify the ad vance in oats on this score. Pos sibly those who substituted,.oats .for maize, when the latter, were scarce and-dear, have learnt to prefer oats for horse feed. Maize at 2/6 to 2/7 for prime yellow is %d. to Id. bet ter than last week, and oats at 2/8 to 2/10 for best giant whites are Id. to 2d. better. The market is very firm, and " the Street" has failed to discover the cause vet. The market for onions is rather depressed at £2/15/ to £2/17/0 for bro...
Women's Affairs Fashions of the Week CONCERNING SLEEVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Women's Affairs (f By "THE WIFE." )} ^ J Fashions of the Week CONCERNING SLEEVES. There is only one kind of bodice permissible. That is the conclusion that I have come'to, after much exa mination and inspection of all the new things which the shops have "been so lavishly displaying for our delight of late. The shoulder with out seams is seen on every dress, even tailor-made coats being cut in the seamless style, if possible and practicable. The bodice matching the skirt is cut now in faced cloth, very good serge, or ratine, a new ? kind of camel's hair. The sleeves of these, cut in one with the. bodice, without shoulder seam, end at the ?waist and must be tight-fitting and leat. Elbow sleeves with net under leeves are "out of it" at present; rat for evening gowns, any kind of irm covering may, be adopted, any cind, that is, as to length, while un lersleeves of chifl'on should be ar ranged to suit the arm of the wear er. The importance of the sleeve in fixing the character of the bod...
STATION PRODUCE. Rabbit Skins. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
STATION PRODUCE. Rabbit Skins. The A.M.L. and F. Co.. Ltd., re port a good general demand for rab bit skins, at prices about .'the same as those ruling at the previous sale, with the exception of lately caught skins, which advanced from Vod to ld per lb. SheepSkins. Buyers were in full attendance, and prices were generally on a pai with the previous sales. Tallow. Good competition ruled at the last auctions, but prices declined about 10/ per ton. Quotations were £30/5 to £30/15/; exceptional lots, £31 to £31/5/; medium to good, £29 to £30 per ton. Hides and Calf Skins. Messrs. Winchcombe, Carson, Ltd.,. report:-The last hide sales were well attended, and although supplies, were light, there was a general re duction in prices. Faulty sorts, in cluding sloppies, were about %d per lb. lower, whilst prime-conditioned, were only about down; good, stout heavies again commanded very keen competition, and exceptionally" high prices were realised for all that were submitted.

FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
FRUIT. The fruit market is good for all hard carrying lines, but the large shipments of overripe stuff have had a tendency to reduce prices for that quality. There have-been "'speeia41y large ofl'erings of Williams' pears Victoria mostly overripe, and these have been selling at from 2/6 to 4/ per case. Tasmanian fruit has now begun to make its appearance on this market, and any choice varieties of apples well-coloured are realising; good'prices. ''» VEGETABLES. There is a good demand for vege tables, but on account of the heavy supply of cauliflowers from Perth, in the Bathurst district, the market price of cabbages has eased a little. A consignment of the latter from. Moss Vale way ought to have been at the vegetable market on Wednes day in time for the morning sale; but owing to some railway regulation which delayed the truck at Clyde yards for about 31/. hours, they miss ed the sale, and had to be offered the next morning as stale cabbage, For such loss, occasioned to suit the ra...

THE PERSPIRING DANCER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
THE PERSPIRING DANCER. With the dance season soon to be, the woes of the dancing man and the dancing maid will be in full cry. In a hot, muggy atmosphere, the close ballroom becomes mostly a scene of martyrdom towards the end of a dance, to an energetic person, who has faithfully gone through the pro gramme. The man who takes an extra collar to a ball, and changes at half time when his original neck concealer has become a wilted rag, is wise in his generation. But for a girl there is no such alleviation. She is lucky in not having a stiff collar of glazed linen around her neck, but if she perspires freely, and her com plexion begins to run, she feels that her streaky state is little if any thing better than her partner's Avilted condition. The art of keeping cool at a dance is difficult of attainment. Many men suffer more than they used by wearing a "twicer" collar in the evening. The "twicer" should never be worn with evening clothes. It is almost as bad as the red silk handkerchie...

THREE KINDS OF WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
THREE KINDS OF WRINKLES. "My wife lias no wrinkles. Those are lier- 'expression lines/" said a polite man, referring to the marks of age creeping slowly, but surely on the sweet face of his wife, a woman who had thought and felt too much during her 40 years of life, not to have some trace showing on her face in the furrows left by care, conside ration, or anxiety. Yet, although to be quite free from wrinkles in mid dle-age must mean that a woman has neither a heart to feel nor a brain to think with, wrinkles are in plain truth very disfiguring. No wonder face..creams and massage treatments bring in such fortunes to their professors. There is a way of getting rid of wrinkles, or, at any rate of diminishing their harshness, which does not depend on any out side appliances. That way is to rest. Worry, fatigue, and short sight are three most important factors in producing those "expression lines" which all so much dislike. Cheerful ness and a happy disposition prevent wrinkles, though a...
WHY STIR UP DISCONTENT? [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
WHY STIR UP DISCONTENT? Editor "The Land".-I would like to give you my views on the rural workers' wages, platform. I think, if enforced in its present form, it will destroy the farming industry in. this; country, for this reason: Weakly men are very little use to the farm er, except to do odd work about thti place. I have live plough teams, and', about 40 draught horses, and I don't, like changing my drivers, as I find', the horses soon get spoiled, so I en gage my men by the year at a satis factory wage, and if they are not satisfied they can leave at any time,, by giving a week's, notice. ' But good men don't often want to leave. I" have one who has been here five years,, and others two and three years, and! they have no wish to leave till they save money enough to buy a teami of horses themselves, when they in- . tend to take land from me on the sJiare system, As men that served! two or three years before them have' done. I cleared 500 acres of heavy timbered land, and let it al...
