STATE SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 29 May 1894
STATE SOCIALISM. Sn:,--1iaving taken the advice of "l hemocrat" and read up a little on ?icaliism, I am prepared to modify the a:ertion, made in my previous letters I1ia " Socialism would govern every detail of our lives." for, I find that whilst h.ciaLts advocate the entire -overthrow a our present system, they repudiate the Lte: that they are morally bound to fur :sih the details of so large a scheme. I !ppsc, as a matter of fact, the Socialis tie instinct recoils at so stupendous an u:mnknaking-as well it might. Yet they r; as ;anguinre and as confident of sue ce-s as if they were working out an easy i'r.'b!m in arithlmetic. lie the distribu ;in:: estitn, "'Reform" quotes Aunie i-a:t: " The form in which the w srr'r share is paid to him is not of S-:im;rv importance'; it would probably i, conveniio t to have communal banks.

FARM FIELD AND GARDEN SMUT OF GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 1 June 1894
FIELDpA RPEN SMUT OF GRAIN. The Slot Water Treatment-Sonkting Seed In a Solution of Sulphate of Copper. The presence of smut in any degree is lowering to the value of all grain. Ex tellent wheat tagged:with smut can scarcely be sold at any price. Abroad, where American wheat once had such a fine reputation, it is now looked on with sispicion. The men who buy wheat in carloads and shiploads are not to be fooled any more, and farmers must see to it that their grains are pure and clean. i At some of the experiment stations the Jansen or hot water treatment has been liracticed with favorable results and is recommended to farmers. The two methods generally recommended .are (1) soaking the seed 15 minutes in water held at a temperature of 132-1E5 degrees, tihen cooling with cold water; (2) soak iegt five minutes in water of 1306138 de grees and spreading out at once to dry. At the Vermont station the first method is approved for smut in oats. At this station it is reported that soaking th...
