ciMfMHE WHEAT PBODUOTiOWS. Owing to a bad season our harvest was a partial failure last year. This, 111 conjunction witii tne war, has occasion ed a diminution of bulk, but an in crease of price. Witii the present rains have come better prospects for next year's returns, and there is every reason to expect not only tiie present price to be maintained, but even an in crease upon that. There is, therefore strong inducements to seed in every pos sible acre. Canada is doing it, in a thoroughly business like manner. There a campaign is formed and carried on with the avowed object of increasing the acreage of Canadian wheat'. 'JPhe propaganda has instituted application known as the "Agricultural W." ~ Book," and the result is that at least 1,000,000 acres will be added to the ordinary acreage for wheat cultivation this year.

THE FUTURE OF CROSSBRED WOOL IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 July 1915

THE FUTURE OF CROSSBRED WOOL !N AUSTRALIA. (From the '"Wool'Record") To what position crossbred wools in Australia will attain is one of great im portance, not to Australia alone, but to all the wool producing countries, and manufacturing centres of the world, and perhaps to Bradford in particular, where these coarser haired wools aro so largely and successfully employed. There can be no doubt whatever in tho minds of those interested that the production of crossbrcd. wools is bound to largely increase in Australia, and i do not think I would be far wrong in- saying that such must be the case in practically all sheep growing coun tries which are only partially developed. At the presnt time there are large tracts of country in Australia carrying merino sheep which are eminently suit able for the production of the Lincoln Merino or some other crossbred-type of wool. 'Then again, there aro other por tions of the Continent not yet utilised, . on which farming could be-very success fully...

All of these people could not hare been fooled all these years with an inferior article. The superiority of the "Alfa-Laval" and the estimation in which it is held can b. accounted for in various ways. To begin with, the "Alfa-Laval" Separ ator Company has concentrated its ef forts to the building of a Cream Separa tor and nothing else. It is left to other concerns the building of engines, reaners and binders, hay rakes, ploughs, harrows, etc., etc. It is the one sep arator concern that appreciates the importance of specialisi...
