Commercial. Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 3 March 1899
, Commercial. The 'Advocate 'Office, . Thursday Evening. The. potato market opened yesterday v morning by some buyers offering £8, but only a short time elapsed ere the figures went to 8/5/. This morning 8/10/ was the ruling figure. £8/10/ was religiously kept to as the quotation for potatoes during the day, and we have not heard of any rise on this figure. It is estimated that what has been put on board the Bteamers here, and what is on trucks and in sheds, totals about 6,000 sacks, and the steamers Glaucus and Tekapo have brought from other coast ports, in round numbers, 2,500 sacks. To-morrow's deliveries are expected to be heavy. By the bs Glaucus he North-Western: Farmers' Association has shipped 80 bags seed, and we believe this is the record for early shipment of seed. The bulk of the potatoes coming forward now are very fair samples, and we 1 note ithat anything but ;fair samples are ''condemned andtcauied to' be' picked over. Italian rye grass is quoted at 8/ per bushel. In...

EMU BAT PRODUCE' MAJRKET. Burnie, Thursday. ' The potato market was very active this morning, the fact that .the Tekapo (then in port) was the last steamer on the berth for Sydney this week being responsible for a good quantity of arrivals. Teams came in in large numbers, and the break water was the scene of much activity. Though announced to sail about noon the vessel waited till 1.15 before casting off, when she had on board 898 bags of potatoes and 676 bags of ore from the Magnet minei. ?'; Potatoes .continued to arrive right tip to the_ hour of sailing, and about 40 bags came in too late for ship ment. These, however, with others that came in this afternoon, are to be tran shipped to Dovonport by the Amy. ' The Tckapo's cargo from Stanley consisted of 580 bags potatoes. The s.s.

For the Farmers. THE SEASON IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 3 March 1899
j^'M/ilie-FarnierSv V;^ ? .?'?:', THE SEASON IN.VICTOBIA. ' The peculiar character of the summer in Victoria is still being maintained. The '? . oppressive atmosphere of last week has , '. been succeeded by nice rains, extending over a considerable portion of tho colony, , and a cool change, which may possibly mean that the summer season is over, and genial autumn weather will prevail. Bain at this time of the year is calculated to do avast amount of good, provided that a sufficient aownpour is obtained. .Banners. ?— want' rain to cause the germination of . weed seeds in tho stubble paddocks, thus ensuring clean crops later on, and enabling them to get the ploughing done.

EVERGREEN OAKS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 3 March 1899
?-EVERGREEN OAKS. Many of the evergreen oaks are ex tremely ornamental, and deserve more attention in this country (remarks tho 'Australasian') than is given them. The majority of them are extremely hardy, thriving in exposed situations, not very dainty as to the soil they have to grow in, and although their flowers are not conspicuous, their foliage is good, and their acorns and cups sometimes make a fine show. The common evergreen oak (Quercns ilex) is found in various forms, sometimes only a dwarf shrub, and again 40ft to 50ft high is not uncommon in Europe. It will stand any amount of pruning, and makes an excellent hedge plant. Com pared with many other shrubs, it may be termed a somewhat slow grower, but it lasts nearly for ever, and in deep suitable soils never feels the effects of drought. It will grow quite close to the sea, with even the salt spray occasionally dashing over it. It is not subject to scale disease like the common deciduous oaks. The Kermes oak (Q. coccifera)...
