OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By, "Rusticus.") To establish a breed of wheat that will grow' threu gralis -lor every two pruduc-i d by the present best variety is an , ach:eveonen of no meau tin .iir to Vicoria. That is the stage at which the efforts of Mr. Rich ardson, Agricultural Superintendent, to doubei tho State's yield are said to be at presesit. In the decade 1900 1910 Victoria produced an average of 9.66 bushels to the acre. In 1911 the average *was 14.52, .in 1912 it fell to 90.5; but in 1913 recovered to 12.58. The average of the last har vest reached 12.81. Of course the average yield from season to season de pends so much upon the rainfall that these figures are not a true test of raising of a standard. Never theless, it is an established fact that with modern improvements the yield of wheat can be increased, just as the :nilk yield of cows can be enhanced' through scientific selection and breed iig a.id proper feeding and housing. Mr. Richardson holds that no reason exists why Vi...

RAILWAY BRIDGE AND TERMINUS. As will be gathered from the re port of the shire president there is. not much chance of having the railway carried over the :Sonowy River into Orbost unless the Shire is prepared to subsidise the work to a very large extent:. The cost of a dual'purpose bridge.Ais esti mated at £18,ooo ahd :of one for railway purposes only at £in,oo. At lirst sight it would appear to be' - a fair thing if the Shire found the' extra £3,000 as the railway con struction branchi will have to .pay the other.£m5,o00oo sooner or later. But the fact is that the Standin'ig Committee refused to sanction" the expenditure of this [15,o00o .and only allowed for the line being: carried as far as Newmerella. -It is now suggested that the 'Council and Country Roads Board should pay half the cost, of the, bridge, £9,000, wvhicli might niean'" that. - the Shire would have to pay .,£6,750."

WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambresine.") A remarkable statement was made at the annual meeting of the silk manu faeturei's of New fork to the effect -that the craze for tango dancing in Ameri-s was responsibie for increased trade prolit.s to such an extent as to outwe'ghi far the loss oaused by the reductiou of the American tatiff. The manufacturers at the meeting repre sented a capital of £60,000.000. They reported that in every silk mill on the Continent spindles and looms were being driven to their utmost capacity, whiile 'nproved machinery and pro tesses of manufacture were resulting in larger profits.

THE OBSCURE MRS. TOWNSEND [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
THE OBSCURE MRS. TOWNSEND It is a startling, soul-wrenching thing to discover thit one is a nonentity. A woman may have quite clearly recog -nised the fact that she is not brilliant and have accepted it as -her lot and destiny to always msake one of the -chorus; yet such is the majesty of life, of which she is a pulse, that it will be impossible for her, under normal condi tions, to ever regard herself as a ne gligible atom of the universe. To find that others do so has the effect of a spiritual earthquake. It shakes the foundations which she has always taken for- granted. Mrs. Townsend was truly modest, but she had-never realised that she was wrapped in obscurity, as in a cloak- of invisibility, until she went to the Bien nial Meeting of the GeneraltFederation of Women's Clubs, held at Waterbury, and she had not really admnitted tlhi situation to herself until' :that- break fast incident on the moreiingiCof-;the fourth day. There were -two- other women wear ing Federation badgps at...

SKIN RAW WITH ECZEMA ZAM-BUK AGAIN TRIUMPHS Zam-Buk emerged triumphantly from one of the most severe tests imaginable when it cured little Kathleen Russell's torturing eczema. Read the mother's story to realise what a wonderful transformation Zam-Buk worked. At Clanwilliam St., Willoughby, North Sydney, Mrs Russell said: '"When my little girl, Kathleen, was but three weeks old, her head face, neck and chest were affected by a disfiguring attack of dry, itching ec zema, The child's skin was fearfully inflamed and irritated, and looked just like raw meat, "Kathleen needed such constant attention that we ,were unable to get proper rest and sleep for n eeks and-weeks. "Chemists ointments and all kinds of ordinary remedies failed to check the disease. Then we had K.,thleen at the Hospital. but their treatment seemed to cause the eczema to spread worse than ever. .The child became the talk of the .neighbor hood . "When we almost despaired we heard of Zam-Buk's nonderful skin curing powers...
