DOW WELL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 28 April 1914

DOW WELL NEWS. Our correspondent writes :—After a long dry spell 120 points of rain have been recorded during last week, and farmers are now engaged with seeding operations. The warm wea ther experienced since the rain should assure an abundance of feed shortly. Lambs are making their appearance, ( and appear fairly strong. Stock of all kinds arc in fair condition, and high prices are being obtained for sheep, whilst cattle and pigs are also in good demand. Horses are much lower in price than they have been for the past two years. Quite a num ber of acres have been fallowed during the summer. This appears to be becoming quite a practice in this dis trict, certainly it is much easier working for both men and horses, and if the returns are equal to spring fal lowing it will, no doubt, become more general in future.

\SUWfP "SINCE 89 This magnificent pile of buildings is the famous Chateau at Tanunda, f.:*- -j South Australia, the capacity of which is 1,600,000 gallons of wine and brandy—where more than half the total stock of brandy in the Com monwealth is being matured—where Chateau Tanunda Three Star Brandy is produced from freshly-picked grapes—where the Commonwealth Excise Officers personally supervise the placing of the Government Seal on each bottle, which is a guarantee of the purity and maturity of the spirit. When you buy imported brandy you get no guarantee of purity or maturity, and you pay over a shilling a bottle more in duty alone than you pay for Chateau Tanunda Brandy. Delightful as a beverage—you can taste the grapes in it. As a medicine it is particularly valuable, and is preferred by medical men. KEEP A BOTTLE IN THE HOUSE.
