Urgent! The Present Scare — The Commissioner for Public Health (Dr Atkinson), with the experiences of all the other States behind him, has drawn up a set of prescript ions, for the use of persons in their own homes, where the attendance of a medical man cannot be immediate ly secured, or pending the arrival of medical aid. Three of the formulae are for internal administration to suit the varying forms of Pneumonic In fluenza, and the fourth is a prevent- ; ative or gennicidal fluid for douching the nose and throat. All these can be obtained from Thomas and Coy, chemists of this town, at the price of 2/6 per bottle, or 10/- for the set ! While it would be wise for all to provide for an emergency it is parti- j cularly desirable for heads of house- j holds living even a short distance from town to have a supply of these preparations on hand. Prompt at tention will be given to communi cations addressed to THOMAS & CO* I Chemists, Victoria-st., Bunbury

A series of interesting demonstra tions (says the 'Farmer and Settler') took place recently in the Tamworth district, the first on Mr. William Maunder's farm, 'Klori.' With a heavy-weight 6-furr.ow stump-jump plough/ the Fordson tractor covered a little over an acre of stiff land in thirty-five minutes, the fuel consumption being a little over a gallon of kerosene. The trac tor was then attached to a heavy 4-furrow shearer plough, which was put into ground that had not been broken for a number of years ; the tractor had no difficulty in ploughing this ground to a depth of 7iu. Field trials of second ploughing were also given by attaching the tractor to a 13-tooth Statton . cultivator, from which a team of eight horses had just been unyoked; this implement was also handled with the greatest of ease. When attached to an Andrews and Bevan chaff-cutter, twenty-five bags of chaff, each bag weighing ove...

AUSTRALIAN WHEAT. Home Price Raised. 'As a result of the recent 'upward tendency in. the price- of wheat over seas', the home consumption price 'in Australia has been raised from 5s. to fj' ud'- a busheI- This increase of: od. brings the home price into line ?with the' rate of 5s. 6d. a bushel at' which 1,500,000 bushelsvwere sold re-' cently to Britain.
