Next-' Season's: Butter. .'OE,?ORT, MAY BE STOPPED. SA SERIOUS OUTLOOK. The opinion prevails among butter merchants-that the export of next sea son's makes will be stopped, for,. as the 'Imperial authorities regard but ter as -a luxury, and meat as a neces sity, it will be for meat that the lim ited cold storage space on oversea steamers will be reserved. It was said recently that this will create a difficulty.in the matter of butter stor age, seeing that the butter coming forward in two months, during 'the' height of the season, would be suffi cient to. exhaust..the capacity of those cool stores that are suitable for but ter. One prominent merchant urged that it is" essential, in the interests of the dairy farming industry, that increased ;stora'ge accommodation should be pro vided without delay. From the point of view of'private cool stores' owners there are qbvious difficulties. The de mand for extra storage is temporary, therefore, if the existing. stores were increased to meet....

Rain Worth Millions. WHEAT, WOOL AND LAMBS. PASTORALISTS' BRIGHT OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
:Rain Worth Millions., SWHEAT, WOOL AND LAMBS. PASTORALISTS' BRIGHT OUTLOOK. .It is estimated that the recent rain fall-.has :benefited Australia to& the •extent of £25;,000,000 in the value of wheat and lambs alone. MLR. RI.' . r'itrt (of Pitt, Son and Badgery), a man with his finger on the. pu!se of the pastoral industry, works it' out this way. The lambing and the wheat crop of the Comrmonwealth should return about £50,000,00.0. The figures for the wheat crops for the past two years show. that 320,000,000 bushels were harvested-or 160,000,000 bushels for a year. Put the return for the coming season down at 150,000,000 bushels. -The figures are well within the mark. If the rain had not come when it did much of the grain in the soil would not have germinated, and owing to .the hardness of the ground no late sowing. could have been proceeded with. 'Half the estimated crop would have been lost. The value of the loss, roughly speaking ,would have amount :ed to £15,000,000. Thi...

On Sat urday, before a well-filled hall, the cantata '"Princess Chrysanthemum" was very successfully produced.

Australia's Mercantile Fleet. THE COMMONWEALTH OWNED STEAMERS.. SATISFACTORY PROGRESS REPORT. " Much curiosity has beeni 'from time to time entertained by the public as to what had become of the "Common wealth Government Line" of steam ers, of which so much was heard sev: eral months ago, but so little of late. But, recognising the -necessity- for preserving a general secrecy about :the movements of .shipping; and hav ing confidence in the Government's administration, the public acquiesced in the official silence in the confident belief that everything was all right. The following statement;-published iately, will be welcomed as afrfording' some light upon the -results now be ing obtained: If the freight rates now prevailing are maintained until the end of the year, and there is no reason at pres ent to anticipate any reductions, a profit of at least £1,000,000 will,' it is estimated, have been realised 'bj then by the Commonwealth line of steamers. The entire fleet is now in full o...

Richmond Council to See Mr. Hughes on Fellmongery Question-Board of Health's Ban Hotly Criticised. There was a lively discussion at the meeting of the Richmond Coun cil on Monday night, when the coinm munication from the Board of Health notifying that the council's permit for the extension of the works at J. Ken non and Sons Pty. Ltd. and Pizzey and Co., for the purposes of treatment of skins, had been revoked. Cr. Bell, who has now jumped into Cr. \Vebber's old seat as leader of the Labor section, was the first speaker, and expressed an opinion that "the Board seems to be supreme." Cr. Strahan said that the Board would be acting quite rightly if it were squelch ing an industry that was likely to be detrimental to health, but the medical evidence that had been adduced at the inquiry was all against that view. The chairman (Dr. Robinson) had an nounced at the beginning that only evidence rielating to the health stand point would be admitted, but the Board yielded to other influences ...

Barry Lupino -must have a tremen dous fn'd of- energy to be able to set to work and cart an entire company and props to a distant camp and give a complete performance of "The White Chrysanthlimum." They actually did this on Sunday, and it must consti tute a record for Australia. I believe some such thing has been done ini' England, but never here. They dvi dently 'argued, "If Miahomet can't. come to the mountain, then the moun tain must go to Mahomet." The boys.; at Langwarrin are unable to attend any theatrical shows, - and therefore the whole company, even to the bal let and chorus and the 'full 'orchestra...

'Dearer Than Wool," BOOM IN COTTON. -REDUCED CROP IN U.S.A. Advices from Liverpool state that the latest advance in' cotton has car ried.the price to 16.40d. per lb., a-rate above the value of wool. The com bination of short crops in the United States, tle enormous requirements of the munition factories, and' the limit ed supplies of wool available for civil ian dress, have raised cotton to a fig ure which cannot but be serious to the weaving centres. Only once has this price been exceeded, when, in the American civil war, Confederate block ade runners were able to land cotton at'Liverpool and'secure as high as 2/6 per lb. SSince the end of January the total advance in price has been 70. per cent., while current prices are 13 per cent: higher:than those of two years ago;'and 107 per cent. above those of 12 months ago.

Hermann, a few miles out of Junee, just over the Victorian border, re cently made a raid on the mice in a barn where a few bags of oats and chaff were stored. All hands were armed with wet cornsacks, and stood around while the bags were disturb ed one after the other. Each bag was alive with the pest, and as they ran about the floor the armed force in waiting lustily laid into them. By the time each bag had been shifted there was a huge heap of dead mice estimated by Mr. Her mann at between 15,000 and 16,000. The heap was about five feet square and three feet high in the middle. Mr. ilermann says that the mice prevent him cutting chaff for more than three days ahead. If the chaff is stored longer the bags are torn open by the Ipest, and the chaff de stroyed. A correspondent from Ariah Park tells another story of slaughter. He writes:--"I started wdrking for Mr. P. '. Tyndall here on Apr...
A Big Dam. MURRUMBIDGEE IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
A Big Dam. MURRUMBIDGEE IRRIGATION. - There is already enough water pent up behind Burren Juck dam to serVe the irrigation settlements at Yanco *and Miirool for the next two years. 'It is doubly interesting for one who knew Burren Juck and the Murrumbidgee before the dam build ing 'began, to see the great inland lake that has been created there. Na ture fashioned the river and the mountains for the special purpose of this huge weir. The river flows be tween a wide gorge formed by two eminences a couple of thousand feet high on either side of the stream. Nature intended that, by man putting a dam across, a huge reservoir to supply the sun-baked plains hundreds of miles away might be formed. And the thing has now been done, or par tially so. The dam is 145 feet high already, and it has to go up another 55 feet yet. It will take another three years to complete it. The engineer in charge of the works, Mr. D. F. Camp bell, states that the dam has already cost approximately £800,000, and ...
