The improvement in putting in and tillago generally.can not, however, be stated in figures, but it is notable. Settlers are depriving themselves in many ways to enable them to purchase ploughs, as it is now - universally recognised that thorough cultivation is as essential in the Mallee as elsewhere. Nature is also playing a leading part. Not for many years has there been a more auspcious open ing or more auspicious rainfalls.

BEETROOT LEAVES AS FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 26 June 1914

BEETROOT LEAVES AS FODDER. The process of drying the leaves of the sugar beet crop is beizig gradually evolved in Germany on practical lines, and it is estimated that when the pro oass becomes general it will represent an economy of sopImething like, £8,000,000 at present expended on other feeding stuffs. According to experts, the value of the dried leaves is £3 to £3/10/ a ton, without taking into consideration the residual i-alueo of manure. As a fod der the dried leaves are eaten readily by cattle, and are quite free from the drawbacks arising from the consump tion of large quantities of the leaves in a fresh state.

WIT AND HUMOR. They were playing "'Macbeth," and the performance had reached the thrill ing point where Macbeth goes off the stage to murder the King. On arrir ing behind the scenes the villain of the piece looked about for the blood in which to dip his hands. Not finding it, he snummoned the stage manager, who had forgotten to prepare it.
