'he Ihill free Iiess With which is Incorporated the "Nhill Mail." TUESDAT, 21st APRIL. Governor-General's Speech. Through the Goveriior'8 speech, for which they are responsible, Ministers have hurled a direct challenge at the Constitution. As to the policy which they have pursued since they took office, the friends of Mr Cook and his colleagues may differ, as friends do whatever course those in authority adopt. But all Liberals, no matter what their own prepossessions or in terests, will admit that Ministers de serve the credit given to those who having put their hand to the plough refuse to look back. As soon as Labour made it clear that it would not allow Parliament, elected in 1913, to do any useful work, the Govern ment devoted its energies to the one great end—the securing of a double dissolution at the earliest possible moment. Under the hard and fast party system which ifc thrust on a re luctant Common wealth, Labor cannot allow the Ministry to do any good which may bo preven...

RURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 21 April 1914
RURAL NOTES. >jrrr, (By "Ilusticus.") At tho time uf writing the prospect* for autumn arc not cheering. The long-continued dryness and tho adveni of mornings that suggest'the apprcacf of frost point to a bad winter. Tim applies particularly to the dairying industry. The Western district n badly in need ol' immediate rain, jvhich. it it falls within the next week or so, might caus^ ail increase in the supplj of mill; and bultor. Otherwise it will be very unlikely that any increase will take place m the supply ooming to Melbourne from that quarter until June or July. The butter now coining to Melbourne from many factories is very poor in quality. Owing-to the ••small supplies of eieam in many parts of the country iarine; s' cans take lon ger to fill, and consequently produce only very indill'eivnt butter.. Condi tions are generally very dry along the Murray, less than 5in. of rain, having fallen in nine months. The irrigation areas are producing a little butter, but many factories ...

DEALING WITH THE STRAW. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 21 April 1914
DEALING WITH THE STKAlW. I In summing up tho results obtained under various methods of dealing with tho straw in tho continuous wheat growing experiments for tho past -six years at the Cowra Experiment Farm, tho manager concludes that with wheat each year there is a marked advantage in tho practice of burning tho straw. It is a practice that is general with farmers, and where they follow wheat with wheat it is the correct one. How long, how ever, crops may bo grown continuously with similar soils and conditions So those at Cowra with equal yields, and whether stubble burning will continue tho best practice, has still to be solved. Where wheat is alternated with bare fallow, it may bo said that for six years (three of which tho land is cropping and three bare fallowed) the method of disposal of the straw has little or no iufluonce on the yield, so far as tho Cowra experiment is concerned. In the wheat-after-fodder crop portion, tho results indicate that there is a sufficiency of orga...
