New Display by Richards and Co. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 17 February 1916

New Display by Richards and Co. One of th" chief attractions in win dow displays at this season is un ; doubtedly the magnificent exhibit of i art studies opened to public view at ; the studio of Richards and Co. on Christmas Eve. Mr Deardon has al ways endeavored to make the Christ mas show especially attractive. and he justly claims that this latest effort has not been surpassed. The large number, of subject pictures bearing titles is an indication that this studio endeavors to produce something above the geneial type of portrait. The amount of care and thought bestowed upon each sub ject is evident by tin- high artistic re sult attained. The large studies cen trally shown are something quite above the general portraits usually displayed. Take the large study entitled "A Young Australian." which might serve . as a national type. The easy careless pose of the handsome boy is quite the i debonnair style cf young Australia, i Shirt open, sleeves rolled up, large j bright eyes licking...

The Rccruiting Campaign At Thursday's Shire Council meeting Cr Gray submitted a re port from the Recruiting Commit tee as to the progress ami results of their work. Tile report showed that the greatest secrecy is being practised in order not to disclose to outsiders the nature of the replies received. The papers, when not before the committee are under a lock arid key held by the recruiting Sergeant. It was reluctantly ad mitted that the response was not as spontaneous as desired and if the quota which the Shire w.i- called on to provide, by the end of this month and 2S per month as re inforcements, were not forthcom ing it was easily in be -an that some special effort would be nec essary. The committee expressed its appreciation of the tact and en ergy displayed by Recruiting Ser geant Chapman in what to him must be an unpleasant duty.

The Man on the Land. Irrigation Areas. Lucerne Hay. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 17 February 1916

og; & The Man on the Land. 'aV 6*5 ♦xVd <> o' i>>* $'M «$ Irrigation Areas. I Luccrnc Hay. J In a season of aimn lance such .is the present one there is :i limited demand for lucerne hay. After paying the costs of harvesting; and marketing, very little profit remains for the grower at the current price —about £4 a ton on the Melbourne market. In years of scarcity (says the "Argus") the irrigationist's opportunity comes, and if he should lie sufficiently fortunate to have a stock of lucerne hay on hand he reaps a rich reward. During the interim, however, he must be pro | vided with the wherewithal to live and carr.y on. Ilry spells c.nly occur at intervals of every four or five years on the average. Settlers in the irrigation areas who place a sole or chief dependence on lucerne growing for hay, are therefore, unlikely to make any decided head way while prices remain low. Many of them will probablv be compelled to vacate their blocks before the next rise c...

Health and cleanliness, and care go hand in hand, hence the need for eternal vigilence and the proper inspection of places that in appeare;icc, if not in fact, possess the elements of hn k ing danger.
