Commercial. The "Advocate" Office, Tuesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 March 1899
Commercial. The ' Advocate ' Office, Tuesday Evening. The potato market this morning was in a sort of dazed condition, the result of the Glaucus' shipment being known, by the 'Advooate' special cable, to be selling at 4/10/ to 4/15/. with every nosslbilitv of a drop on arrival of the Tekapo s cargo. One or two dealers were prepared to give ' £8 for prime quality, but would not go ? beyond this figure. As a fact, for a few dray loads brought in £8 was offered, but the producers thought they would get higher values, and they 'dumped' ac cordingly. In the face of Sydney prices and the probability of heavy shipments : going forward again this week, we are of opinion that £8 will be about the top value here. But as one never knows what may happen, and this ib particularly the case with the tuber, a rise on this figure may take place, though it cannot poBBibly be a big one. During the after noon no change took place in the potato market. Everything points to heavy de liveries for the week...

ANOTHER EXAMPLE FOR TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 March 1899
ANOTHER EXAMPLE FOR . TASMANIA. Last week (wo leetn from Saturday's ' Australasian') the first shipment of this season's apples left for England. As soon as they arrived in Melbourne from ' ihe orchards they were taken to the Go vernment cool stores, Flinders-street, where the cases were pkced in tho cool chambers to reduce tho temperature. It - was found that this cooling brought to light bruises and other blemishes, which were not noticed before, and which would inevitably contaminate the sound apples. The unsound apples were therefore taken out and the cases repacked with the apples having no defects. At the same tune care was taken to grade the fruit, so that all in a case might be of uniform size. Some of the growers lost a few cases by having the unsound apples rejected in this way, but it was better that the culling should be done here than in London, as the freight on the cases would.be saved ind tho risk of contaminating the good fruit reduced. — Although the applo ex ports...
In Want of a Wife. A MODEST REQUEST FROM THE STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 March 1899
In Want of a Wife. A MODEST REQUEST FROM THE STATES. The prettiest young lady in the colony (remarks the Melbourne 'Argus'), be tween 20 and 25 years of age, may hear of something to her advantage on applying to the Postmaster-General. A citizen of the United States, who rives his name and address, has politely requested Mr Duffy to hand the billet-doux enclosed in his letter to ' some unmarried Christian lady who can read and write the English language, between the age of 20 and 25 years — the prettiest one in your country.' The Postmaster-General's correspondent, who desireB to marry a Victorian girl, is guilty of a strange omission. He does not say whether he is a millionaire or not, but he gives a lot of information about the political, social and geographical features of ' the glorious State of Ohio,' in which he resides. In view of the serious charac ter of the duty imposed upon him, Mr Duffy — in his 'capacity of Postmaster General, of course — opened the mysterious love-lett...
Pigs on Pasture. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 March 1899
Pigs on Pasture. Interesting investigations, extending over a period of two years, have been conducted at the Utah Experimental Station, U.S.A., with a view of determin ing the value of grass and exercise in the production of pork. The pasture was a mixture of eight kinds of grasses, lucerne constituting at least one-half of the forage. The tabulated records are too long to pub lish in extenso, but the most important are as follow : — 1. Pigs allowed to run at large over 18 acres of good pasture and fed a full ration of grain made the most rapid growth, and required the least grain for lib of gain. 2. Pigs confined in mov able pens in the pasture grew more slowly than those running loose, and required on increase of 20 per cent, of grain to make lib of growth. 8. Pigs at pasture fed under three different conditions gained 92.5 per cent, more, and ate but two per cent, more, than the pigs getting grass, and otherwise similarly fed, but confined in pens. The grain requires to produce ...
