IS VIRGINIA CREEPER POISONOUS? [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 16 January 1919
IS VIRGINIA CREEPER POISONOUS? A "Mercury" sub-.criber has writ ten:-"I have been informed that Vir ginia creeper, if touched by tho hand, causes eczema, and even blood poison ing. Is this a fact?" Mr. h. Bodivny, C.M.G., the Government Botanist, says the inqu:rer mistakes, as many do, a creeping plant on buildings, etc., which very much resembles Virginia creeper^ for tho latter, and is called tho poison vino of California. It is distinguishable from Virginia creeper upon examination by reason of having a bigger leaf, which is a little differ ently segmented. There was one of these mçst undesirable plants growing al Parattah hotel, until it was remov ed, antj it was capable' of giving a per son eczema who sat or stood near it, even without touching it. There was one destroyed in Fitzroy-place, Ho bart, which caused Mood poisoning. The Virginia creeper itself is quite a harmless plant.

THE CROP PROSPECTS OPTIMISTIC ESTIMATES FARMERS SCEPTICAL [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 16 January 1919
THE CROP PROSPECTS OPTIMISTIC ESTIMATES FARMERS SCEPTICAL &nbsp; Agriculturists who were spoken to yesterday regarding the optimistic estimates of the Government Statis- tician regarding the season's harvest were decidedly sceptical, considering that the official estimates were over the mark, both in respect to area sown and the probable yields. "The figures show an increase in oats," remarked one farmer, "but I feel sure there has been a decline in the area sown. Then, as to potatoes, the Statistician says there has been a decline of only some 8000 acres. Personally, I do not think there is half the area of potatoes in this year compared with last sea- &nbsp; son. The same authority also questioned the probability of increased yields. For instance, the estimate of the season's oats is 977,000 bushels, as against 570,000 bushels and hay 150,000 tons as against 80,405 tons. The farmer spoken to said he considered the crops of oats and hay would be poorer than those of...
The Advocate. FAIR AND IMPARTIAL THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 1919. THE HOPE OF THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 16 January 1919
The Advocate &nbsp; FAIR AND IMPARTIAL &nbsp; THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 1919. THE HOPE OF THE WORLD. According to the cabled opinions of press correspondents at Paris, Britain is beginning, to show a decided lean- ing towards American opinion in re- gard to the peace settlement, and is prepared to sacrifice much in older to bring about an Anglo-American alli- ance, which is regarded as "the hope 'of the world." The inference to be drawn from the meagre news which is coming to hand on this all-engrossing subject is that Britain and America may combine at the Conference upon a basis of mutual disarmament and in- ternational control, while France will remain loyal to the balance of power. Italy's attitude, has not been hinted at. The opinions quoted are, of course merely the expressions of newspaper correspondents, who aro not likely to be particularly well informed regard- ing the inner working of the minds of the Great Powers' statesmen who are &nbsp; tackling so ...

"LOUD-MOUTHED DISTURBERS" MR. THEODORE AND THE I.W.W. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 17 January 1919
"LOUD-MOUTHED DISTURBERS" MR. THEODORE AND THE I.W.W. BUISBAXH-ffhe &lt; Acting Premier,1 Mr, Theodore, speaking in regard to thc unemployed demonstrations nt Townsville and Bundaberg, said tho Government fully recognised its obli gations towards "the unemployed, and was striving to discharge these. Ec knew a few I.W.W. men who Vcio always bitterly antagonistic to tbe Government were abusing it in consé quence of the unemployed situation, fte thought it was time thc workerj in Queensland awoke and "booted nit" these loud-mouthed disturbers from thc Labor movement. It would bo far-better for tho toilers if they per-1 milted various unions and Labor of ficials to voice their grievances when necessity arose. At any rate, the Government was not going to be bluf fed by the I.W.W. clement, which was endeavoring to fasten on to the Labor movement like barnacles on a ship. _
