FISHY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

^ V FISHY. Brown had been fishing for hours, but had not even had a nibble. He was fed up and just about to return home when a little fellow watching him piped out that he could tell him how to catch some fish. 'Jtiow?' asKea ±$rown. 'Just soak that worm in a little whisky before you put it on your hook,' was the lad's advice. Brown, willing to try ^anything . once, did as he was told, baited his hook, and threw it in the water. .In less than two minutes there was a tremendous tug and he began to reel in.'. Up came a 16in. trout, not on the hook, but dead, with the worm having First Gossip: 'Why did they sep arate?' ' Second Gossip: 'Nobody knows.' First Gossip: 'Oh, how terrible!' A young woman was showing some friends round the city. 'There's the Bank of England,' she exclaimed. 'And that's the Royal Ex change — the telephones, you know!' Two men sat in a bar imbibing many, drinks. Presently one of them said: 'Do you know, Dick, I think I'll buy this hotel.' 'Wait till we've had a...

ORGANIC MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

ORGANIC MANURES. . One great advantage in using or ganic or natural manures as compared with artificial manures is that the for mer supply- humus to the soil, the lat ter do not. It is this humus which, when decaying, supplies nourishment to the plants. Humus must be provided, even where artificial manures are used ex tensively, or the soil will become poor. By its means the soil is opened up and consequently becomes warmer, thus encouraging root action. Soils which have been regularly manured for a number of years will continue to produce good crops for some years after manuring ceases, thus showing that humus is stored up and not read ily exhausted. Farmyard manure is an important organic manure, whether from cow, pig or stables. The straw or other bed ding material it contains is valuable for opening up the soil. This is parti cularly necessary when dealing with heavy soils, horse manure being best in such cases. Cow manure. is richer, but is suitable for light, sandy soils, be c...

LAST STRAW. It was a great shock to Percy Soft leigh yhen lie caught his best friend in the act of kissing his (Percy's) sweet heart. 'Well, Harry,' he said, 'I never ex pected this of you. After all the vears we've been chums and the many times I've been a friend to you, I'm more, than surprised.' Then his voice got louder, and he be gan to show signs of anger. 'And stop kissing her while I'm 'talk- ing to you!' he hissed. ? ~- At a lecture the speaker spoke fer vently: 'He drove straight to his goal. He looked neither right nor left, but pressed forward/moved by a definite purpose. Neither friend nor foe could delay him nor turn him from his course. All who crossed his path did so at their peril.

WHY BLAME THE BANKS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

WHY BLAME THE BANKS. The present, like all previous de pressions, has been marked by an awakened interest ' in economic science. Many persons who in pros perous times make no attempt to seek the cause of changes in] the volume of industrial ouput, in times of depres sion have recourse to elementary economic text books. These well meaning persons, quite inexperienced in the art of sustain'ed'; : study, can scarcely have the ability- to undertake a systematic analysist of the society in which they find themselves. Why do they most frequently start with some aspect of monetary science? Why do they particularly- study the banking- structure? ???'- There are two main reasons. First, the existence of unsold goods. ' They hastily con clude- — to; them it is so obvious-^— that if the people had the money these goods would be bought. Believing there is no limit to the issuing of money, they blame the. banks for the shortage of the 'wherewithal.' They forget that banks are mainly inter mediar...

BACKSHEESH! [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

BACKSHEESH! ' (ByF. W. R.) My friend and I were 'doing' Cairo.' After having seen the Citadel, Bazaars, Mosques, etc., we set out from our ho tel to take a tramcar to the Pyramids. On our way along the street a couple of villainous-looking Arab guides ac costed us and would take no notice of our repeated refusals of their services, but followed us and boarded the same tram. On our arrival at the Pyramids the guides attached themselves to us, de spite our remonstrances, and, at last, for the sake of peace, we gave in. We reached the entrance to the shaft, and, with one preceding us and the other bringing up the rear, we slid down into the truly, Egyptian darkness. We arrived at the bottom breathless and perspiring; the heat was intense, and the dust nearly choked us. The guides struck matches, and, lighting two small pieces of candle, moved off into the gloom, which the flickering lights failed entirely to dissipate. Sud denly, the lights vanished, and we stopped short. At that momen...

Empire Trade SCOTLAND-AUSTRALIAN INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

Empire Trade SCOTLAND-AUSTRALIAN INTERESTS. According to a recent issue of the Glasgow 'Herald' an increase in the volume of Scottish exports to the Dominions is foreshadowed by ne gotions which have been initiated on behalf of the Glasgow Chamber of Commerc and the Clyde Trust. Sir 'Steven Bilsland, president of the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, pointed out that reciprocity in trad ing between the Dominions and the Clyde1 was becoming a necessity, for with the development which had taken place with some of the Domino ions in the last three years, it was becoming increasingly important to get cargo both ways. Sir Steven said, 'Mr H. Ford, com mercial manager of the Clyde Navi gation trust, and I met the High Commissioners for Australia, New Zealand, and the Union of ? South Africa. The object of our visit was to secure co-operation towards the devising of some means whereby visi tors from the respective Empire countries who have business to place m this country might be put in-- to t...

The Starlings DECLARED TO BE DESTRUCTIVE [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

The Starlings DECLARED TO BE DESTRUCTIVE Reference was recently made in a Melbourne newspaper to the fact that Mr J. C. Bendall, of Footscray (Vic.) brought the first batch of starlings from England to Australia 65 years ago. There were 17 individuals in the batch, but their number now throughout Australia is incalculable, and they are extending rapidly.. Is the invasion a blessing or a curse? This question, in the opinion of most people who have considered it, is difficult to aniswer in a word. In many country districts starlings undoubtedly render useful service as destroyers of insects. A flock is apt to wipe out a few million grasshop pers within a few days. But there is a heavy debt to be considered. Aside from the fact that they rout useful native birds from nesting hol lows, starlings attack orchard fruits, infest houses with parasites, and sometimes kill trees with .their drop pings. . Similar trouble has been experi enced in Canada. In one place starlinigs destroyed a great...

MANAGEMENT OF FRUIT INDUSTRY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 19 April 1934

MANAGEMENT OF FRUIT INDUSTRY. To the Editor. Sir, — The article published in the 'H. and B. Times' recently on the management of the fruit industry .and1 '' the comments of 'Cygnet Grower' thereon, confiims the state ments made previously bv the writer on this subject, except the suggestion that the proposed board should be composed of growers. Such a board would be doomed to failure unless the members have a training in big; business, and have proved their ability in this' direction. I do not think there are any growers who have had sufficient business experience to control such a big undertaking as the fresh fruit industry of Tasmania. If he had that knowledge and ability he would not be growing apples. The men capable of successfully perform ing the duties of such a board, I would respectfully suggest would be ' Messrs F. H. Peacock, managing-, di rector of the largest organisation handling fruit products of all de criptions in the Commonwealth; Mr L Piesse, who has had a wide ex...
