Always Cold.— One often gets tired of hearing the jibes of city people to the effect that farmers are always grumbling. The 'Speaker's Maga zine' quotes the case of a son of toil who was always grateful. :He was a man who always looked 'ori f the bright side of life and when any thing. went wrong always looked up something good to , match it. ~ He happened to lose a fine, horse. When friends expressed Sympathy, he said: 'I can't complain; I never lost a horse before.' This crop failed, and he said: 'After ten years of good crops I have no kick coming, because of one failure.' Finally, poor fel low, a railroad train ran over him, and both feet had to be amputated at the ankles. A friend called to see him and said: 'Jim, what have you to say after this misfortune?' ' 'They were always cold, anyhow,' he re plied.

Correspondence. BUYER IS KING. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934
Correspondence. BUYER IS KING. To the Editor. Sir,— One may lead a horse to the water, but one cannot make him drink. One may have excellent goods to sell, but if the buyer does not want them he cannot be induced to buy. Many years ago the late Mr Alfred Leakin said, 'The buyer is king.' That fact is apparent to-* day, and lack of markets and starva tion pi-ices lor wneat ana Duiter nas rendered despei-ate the plight of the agriculturist. Wheat is selling at. prices lower than it has brought sinct; the sixteenth century. . Denmark^ in a determined effort to capture' overseas markets, is selling butter for- home consumption at 215 kroner, a hundred kilos compared with 123 kroner f.o.b. to Great Britain.

THE APPLE INDUSTRY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934
THE APPLE INDUSTRY. To the Editoi. ' Sir, — Apparently unable to -press any destructive criticism; Mrs'CO.r M. Calvert descends' to abuse ^by describ ing my suggestions, particularly the possibility of the Government finding new markets, as 'palpably absurd, and an impossible picture.' Now it happens that since writing my letter, advice is to hand of an article on 'Planned Empire Marketing,' ap pearing in the London 'Times' of 3rd April, 1934. It states: 'Mr Bruce's experience has convinced- him that the economic salvation of the Commonwealth depends on a con certed policy of trade production, in which the Governments will combine with leaders of agriculture, etc.' In other words, Mr S. M.. Bruce realises that political economy and planned production and distribution are intsr woven, and' as the Governments have in the past assisted.' - to obtain a greater production, so they must now assist to obtain a market for such produce, either by extending purchasing power within the country...

UPPER DERWENT THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934
UPPEiv DERWENT I v . ; . /? ? : 1 1 THE WEATHER: ! The weather has been very cold, especially towards the end1 of last week, but the last few days have been delightful. The autumn glory of colors is declining, and soon the trees will be bare of any foliage. The river has risen a good1 deal since the recent rains, and the bare hills are showing signs of the grass shooting — quite a change after the parched looking browness of a few weeks ago. Pile driving has begun on! the tem porary bridge at Macquarie Plains. HARVEST FESTIVALS. -The -Methodist .

HUONVILLE'S SECOND WIN. Cygnet were at home to Huonville last Saturday, and in spite of the fact that the visitors were generally expected, to score an easy win, the game proved an exceptionally excit ing and closely contested one. With the breeze in their favor Huonville only managed to get a lead of 11 points in the first quarter. In the second quarter play was very even, the scores being 2.5 to 2.1 in Cyg net's favor. Cole showed what a good tactician he is by sending Powell forward, in the third quarter, the move proving so successful that Huonville got a lead of 41 points to commence the last term with. Five of .the six goals kicked by the maroons came from Powell. Cygnet made a splendid effort to reverse the position in the last quarter. They were almost continually on the of fensive, and scored five goals and seven behinds, while their opponents only put on 1.1. Their previous lead, however, enabled Huonville to run out winners by 10 points. Scoi'es at the close of the quarte...

CLUB NOTES. FRANKLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 3 May 1934
CLUB NOTES. FRANKLIN. As a team Franklin showed . vast improvement on the previous Satur day. They played better as a com bination, and showed to considerable advantage in passing, especially along the boundaries. There was also goo-J understanding amongst the for wards. 'Tony' Johnston, though suffering from an injured toe, played1 a great game throughout, and led the team with fine judgment. He was right at his best. Joe Brereton was a tower of strength in the centre. He was di rectly responsible for three of the goals in the second quarter, and all through marked and kicked with his accustomed skill. 'Chum' Freeman played another useful game, rarely missing a possible mark or failing to kick accurately. Roy Fulton deserves much credit for clever shepherding and generally displaying 'football brains.' It was one of the best exhibitions of play he has given. Basil Temple was again reliable in defence and excellent in driving the ball out of the danger zone. A surprise packet was Ja...

CONTRASTS. The people whom I love the best Are never here, but East or West, And those from whom I'd run away, I always see them, .every day. The things I love to talk about, My heart- will seldom let them out; For folk I see prefer to hear About the weathers of the year. But, oh, the places I would find! The people that I'd leave behind, While just the few that went with me Related to my heart should be.
