GREEN OATS FOR FATTENING CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 November 1914

GREEN OATS FOR FATTENING CATTLE. The value ni' tin* green Algerian oat . crop l'or fattening sheep in gaining a | high place in Tasmania tanning opera 1 tions. The crop grows so strongly in this State that in most districts 'it is necessary to feed the paddocks off np till September. While • benelitiug the crop a good return is also secured from tho stock thus fattened, iu some cases Algerian oats are sown to provido feed alone, and not with any idea of after wards cutting for hay. Uu tho 1'al merstou Estate, iu the Dressy diBtrict, tho greater part of ~QU acres was flown with Algerians for such a purpose this season. it is found that sheep are readily fattened iu this manner, and the paddocks turn off a largo number of fat stock.

LOSS OF LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 November 1914

LOSS OF LIME. There is a continual loss of lime every year from the soil, arising from two principal causes, it rapidly sinks down into the subsoil, and then the crops annually carry away a portion from the soil. It is ascertained that the follow ing, crops, including grain and straw or tops and bulbs, carry off respectively:— 25 bushels wheat, about 13 lb. lime; 40 bushels barley, 17 lb.; 50 bushels oats, 22 lb.; 20 tons turnips, 11S lb.; S tons potatoes, 40 lb.; 2 tons red clover, 77 lb.; aud 2 tons rye grass, 30 lb. The herbage of pasture lands that have been neglected gradually becomes of a iibrous character, affording little nourishment for stock, and the animals who have to live on such poor stuff naturally degenerate in a manner simi lar to the grass; but if such land is supplied with proper nourishment in the form of phosphates, and potash, it will in a few years improve in a won derful way, producing herbage which stock can enjoy and fatten ou.

PESTS FROM ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 November 1914

PESTS FROM ABROAD. The danger of the introduction of ! iusect pests and plain diseases from ■ abroad is a very sirous# one, and j should. be kept in view. It has been j pointed out that if the damage caused ! to the crops of the United States by i noxious insects be valued at about £300,000 a year—which is a low esti mate—how much greater must it be iu countries where the plants culti vated. aro not protected by law from tho introduction of now diseases and new obstacles to their complete de velopment. It is asserted that noxious insects,, when introduced into a new country, do far more harm than in ! their native country, as iu their new j habitat they arc no longer held in j check by their natural enemies, as was hitherto tho case. Great stress } was laid on the necessity that the j Governments should organise a system j of inspetion of all imported vegetable matter. And the example of Germany : and - Western Australia is cited, re- ■ minding us how thoroughly tho study I of phyto...

Water For Quambatook. Deputation to the Minister Long Lake Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 25 November 1914

Water For Quambatook. . Deputation to the iVIinistcr.j Long Lake Schamo. Complaint was made at a re cent meeting of ratepayers of Quambatook, that water was not being: conveyed, into Long Lake for the use of the people of the town. Usually the water supply of Quambatook is drawn from the Avoca River. But the river hav ing run dry, the Water Commis sion agreed to make a supply available from Long Lake if cer tainchannelling were undertaken. It was stated at the meeting that the treatment of the people by the Water Commission was "monstrous," as everything had been done by them as requested by the commission, but the water had not been provided. It was explained by the Minis ter on Friday, on behalf of the commission, that the people of Quambatook had notified that they did not care for the water in the Long Lake. It certainly was not good water for domestic purposes. At first the commis sion had planned by means of a dam in the Little Murray to turn enough water in from the Murray it...

State Elections. Polling Day To-morrow. - The triennial elections for the State Parliament will take place to-morrow. In our own elector ate the interest has died out ow ing to Mr Heni-y Angus having been returned without opposition, for which he thanks the electors in our advertising columns. Dur ing the three years Mr Angus has occupied a position in the Assem bly as our representative both his supporters and late opponents "admit that he has been very at tentive to the wants of bis con stituency. Nothing was too small to receive attention, and he was always willing to go out of his way to assist in any movement for the welfare of any of the dis tricts which he represented. Mr Angus has been most solicitous for the welfare of the electors, and if he continues to carry out the same policy'in the future it will be a hard matter to unseat him. Many who were opposed to him at the last election agree that he has carried out his poiicy in a manner which has brought much credit to him, a...

The fact that we are found dis carding our early likings is not. to be taken as conclusive that we desire what is superior.

ISO WELL KNGWN TO HEED Ah' "AD." This idea that you have lived so long In town that everybody knows you and you don't need >o advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advertising, indifference to doing business as it is done in this day and age, is what has enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store ig the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail ordei house. Gf course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper, and see that it is changed, thus keeping new bai gains continually befor the public. He should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at least once a month. Don'l look upon your country newspaper as an object of charity.

Rev. J. R. Crookston's Visit. The visit of Rev James Crook ston, Moderator of the Presby terian Church of Victoria, to Quambatook on Tuesday night last brought with it much hope and encouragement. For some time the reverend gentleman has been visiting drought stricken areas, and Quambatook being counted one of thctn had the honor of being visited by an honorable head of the Presby terian Church. A good number assembled in the church to wel come Mr Crookston, and were eager to hear what he had to tell them. Much was expected, and much was fully realised. Mr Crookston's visit being one of sympathy and encouragement in our time of distress, a fine homely talk with the people, full of sym pathy and hope was given. The people's hearts were endeared to him at once, and not without good reason. Anyone in such ca pacity who comes along, feels with the people, and gives the right word at the right time he or she is counted worthy o£ en dearment. After his talk Mr Crookston gave his hearers a...
