Harrowing Growing Crops. . ' ■ "I A Farmer's Opinion. "The main, object in harrowing growing crops is to prevent evapo ration of the moisture in the soil, and",it also had a' tendency to cause the crop to stool." So wrote Mr W. Brown in a paper read before the Coradgery branch of the N.S. W. | Agricultural Bureau.. " I harrow i nearly every year, my reason, being that I usually feed . off, and.the l ground gets set with the stock going over it." This.farmer confessed that he- had never kept recordsvthat'i.would show the extent to which 'the yield was increased,, but the^ healthy appear ance of the crop a few days after assured.him that it is beueficial-.

Surfiet of Bosses. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
Surfiet of Bosses. v Commenting on some work being done-at the railway yards, Benalla, the "Independent" says—One of the most notable features about the work was that no fewer than seven "bosses," " supervisees," or " ex perts "looked on—-all £24 to ,£30 . per-month-with- 15/-a-daygentlemen ■ —to see that the " undergrads" did i. their work properly. These "high officials " busied themselves mostly by walking about with hands be hind their backs or in their pockets, or walking up and down the tracks • counting the, blades .of grass grow ing.
