Commercial. . The ' Advocate ' Office, Thursday Evening. Potatoes are coming in freely by teams at both East and West Devonport, but deliveries are not expected to be so heavy to-morrow, as most people will be cele brati'.i!; St. Patrick's Day. Tho ss Glaucus which arrived this morning, brought from StanV-v 1,612 sacks potatoes, 885 sacks oats. 70 sacks peas, 12 sacks wheat ; and from Burnie, 800 sacks potatoes, 80 sacks turnips, 23 sacks oats; total potatoes, 2,412 sacks. It is expected tho Tekapo (which will be late this week) will top this quantity from the two ports, but the quantity all told will not be so heavy this week as last, and will not, it is thought, exceed ]. 1.000 to 14,000 'sacks, as. several prodncors have stated they will not bring any fnrvurii to-morro\7. The quotations variiel l-.n-d.iy from 85/ (for off-colors) to (17/6 and up to 40/_ for primo Bmuplcs, and it is pleasing to note that many of tho samples coming forward are prime.

Italy and Ireland. FATHER HENNEBRY'S IMPRESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 March 1899
Italy and Ireland. FATHER HENNEBRT'S - IMPRESSIONS. The Very Bev P. R, Hennebry, of St. Joseph's Church, Hobart, who returned to Tasmania on Saturday last after an absence of IS months in Europe, America and New Zealand, has given an account of his travels in Europe and the impres sions he received. He dwelt particularly on what he saw in Italy and Ireland, and from the report in the 'Mercury' we moke the following extract, which will no doubt be read with interest by most of our readers : — The rev. gentleman stated that on the way from Naples to Rome he saw the field work being done almost exclusively by women and children, and it was explained to him that the men were already in the Army or preparing for . it. The Italian Government was trying to make the country a first-class power on a sixth or eighth class revenue. It was like a man with 80/ a week trying- to keep a carriage and pair. The . people were ground to dust by taxation. At Rome he celebrated mass twice in St. . Peter...
CIRCULAR HEAD PRODUCE MARKET. Stanley, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 March 1899
CIRCULAR HEAD PRODUCE MARKET. Stanley, Wednesday. The market for potatoes opened on Monday at 50/ and bags; the value was however, not maintained, and yesterday the quotation was 5/ lower. Advices as to the state of the Sydney market wero far. from reassuring, and only JE2 was offered for to-day's deliveries. The Glaucus ar rived this morning and left again this evening for Sydney, tho potatoes shipped by her totalling 1,612 bags. There is no change in the prices for grain, other pro duce being also the same as last report. The weather keeps fine and opprcsively warm. Breheney Bros, have, up to tho present, the heaviest yield of oats this sea son. Nine acres returned an average of 22 bags, fully 90 bushels to the acre. Some of tho potato crops are turning out well and as much as 8 and 10 tons of mar ketable potatoes have been the return per acre. -Nearly all the grain is now har vested and the threshing machines arc working long hours to get through the work. There will soon be a cr...
Ulverstone Produce Market. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 March 1899
Ulverstone Produce Market. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— I see your local contemporary cannot omit throwing mud at your paper whenever he thinks he has an opportunity, fof in yesterday's issue, in the bulletin re markets, he writes of ''a sheet which would have the farmers take it as a guide, philo sopher and friend,' as if that shaet had riven incorrect Quotations in re sales o wheat and blue peas at Ulverstone. ? Now it is well known at Ulverstone that few people in. West Devon have placed much reliance on his own reports of markets. It is also pretty generally known, who it is that inspires his agent, as well as the ob ject in view. I know for a fact that your correspondent was quite correct in report ing sales of wheat at Is 9d to 2s Id, and blue peas at 3s. The wheat was as splendid a sample as I have ever seen on the coast, and had been offered at other' places as well as where it was sold at 2s Id. It is scarcely likely that the producer would have sold at that price if he could have ...
LAUNCESTON PRODUCE MARKET. Launceston, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 March 1899
LAUNCESTON PRODUCE MARKET. Launceston, Thursday. Tho produce market has been fairly active during the week, and' a good amount of business has been done. A quantity of oats will bo shipped to Sydney to-morrow by the Tekapo, probably about 700 sacks. If holders./ wished, a large lot of seed oats could be exported at present prices; viz., l/4i to 1/5, but farmers are holding for more. Advices from the mainland, however, state that as soon as the New Zealand crop is on the market prices will decline Potatoes have been in short supply all the week, consequently prices have hardened, quotations being £3 to 3/5/. Wheat is easier, 2/2 being the highest price on offer to-day. Grey peas are selling in small parcels at 2/3 to 2/6 wholesale, and 2/9 retail. Butter has ac cumulated, but prices for prime lots are unchanged. Other principal quotations are :— Flour, £6 to £7 per ton, or 14/ to 14/6 per bag ; pollard, 8d to 8Jd ; sharps, 9d; bran, 7d to 7$d ; English barley, 8/8 to 3/11 ; Capodo.2/...
For the Farmers. DOES WHEAT GROWING PAY? HOW TO INCREASE THE YIELDS [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 March 1899
Tor the Farmers. DOES WHEAT GROWING PAY ? HOW-TO INCREASE THE YIELDS Now that wheat prices have touched a much lower level that is desirable from a producer's.1 point of view, the question, does wheat growing pay? has again be como a livo one. Awriterin the 'Argus' . treats the subject as follows.:— A, little.' over a year ago producers could easily obtain over 20s tier bae for their wheat in 'the local miirket, but the present value is only about 10s Cd per bag. As cultivators throughout a large extent of the North Western district obtained only a bag per acre, or even less, from their wheatfaelds, their operations, which resulted in a gross return of 10s 6d per acre, must involve a loss, no matter how cheaply the work in . connection with the putting in and har vesting the crop was done. There has been a strong agitation for a reduction of railway freights on grain, but even if the wheat were carried for nothing a four bushel crop would not pay at present prices. The secret of how...
But Fly Pest. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 March 1899
Bot Fly Pest. Now is the time to give the horses the powders as supplied by Mr Dossetor, of Devonport. He' had splendid results all over the Coast wherever the powders were given in time last year. It is no use what ever giving them when the horse is in the last stages and its stomach is riddled through. Get 4 doses for 5s (enough to do four horses) at once and give them to all your horses whether they have the Bot or not ; it will not hurt them, and will - clean their stomachs of worms. It is best to send P.O.O. direct to Devonport, ad dresscd to Dossetor's rhamiacy, and you will get the genuine posted to you by re turn. *
EFFECT OF SALT ON MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 March 1899
EFFECT OF SALT ON MILK. Salt given to cows has some effect on tho quality of the milk. This is necessa- . rily so as tho salt aids very much in the digestion of the food, and it is tho quantity of the food digested that regulates tho quantity and quality of tho milk; Salt is indispensable to tho health of any animal that feeds on vegetable matter, and tlie milk is anected greatly by tho health or opposite condition of a cow. When salt is given to excess it is injurious and causes an intense thirst, but this docs not neces sarily make the milk more watery than usual. If the cow drinks nioro water than - is usual, there is no reason to believe that this excess of water dilutes the milk. The milk is not made in any -such way as would make this possible. It is produced , by the bieaking down of the glandular tissue of the udder, and this never con tains more than a normal quantity of water. Tho kidneys are charged with the removal of any excess of water from tho blood, aud this drain, o...

Sad ? Burning Fatality. A GIRL CHARRED BEYOND V ! RECOGNITION. . SAVING THE LIVES OF OTHERS. Gormanston, Wednesday. ? A sad burning fatality occurred at Gor manston about H.45 last night, when a house situated in the Linda Valley, and the property of Mr Alex M'Gee, a brace man at the South Mount Lyell mine, was destroyed and his eldest daughter, Annie, aged seven years, burnt to death in trying to save four other children. It appears mat Airs M-uee was sitting m the front room sewing, when, sud denly sb.6 observed the ceiling to be in flames. She immediately called her eldest girl, and hearing her on the floor she picked up her three younger children and another named Long and carried them out of the building. Messrs Shea and Keen, hearing screams, rushed in to help, -but were unable to do anything. The girl Annie was burnt beyond recog nition. She is supposed to have run back to the bed on seeing flames to try and save tlie children, not knowing the mother had them, as the mattress...

Federation in New South Wales. THE ENABLING BILL. AMENDMENTS BY THE COUNCIL. Sydney, Thursday. The Legislative Council has agreed to the second reading of the Federal Enabling Bill. In committee a motion was carried postponing the taking of a vote on the amended bill for three months. It was decided that a simple majority should suf fice to carry the bill, but if less than one-fourth of the electors on. the roll exercise the franchise it shall be equiva lent to rejection of the bill. Mr Hughes announced that the Government would not aceept this hitter amendment, and it is probable Mr Reid will appoint additional members who incline to his views. Mr E. Barton, the federal leader, has been interviewed regarding the crisis, and says the Council will do well not to pre pitatc a conflict in which all the people will be against them.

Longford, Wednesday, me neanng or the charge of conspiracy to defraud, arising out of the operations of the 'outside' totalisator on the Summer ' Handicap, at the last Longford meet, won by Jenieo, was advanced another stage to day.

THE DROUGHT IN N.S. WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 March 1899
THE DROUGHT IN N.S.' WALES. One of the questions of most import ance at the moment in Australian affairs is the question when tho dry weather in New South Wales is likely to come to an end. While it lasts New South Wales will no doubt require supplies of Victorian chaff, the shipments of which have lately been unusuaUv heaw. Victoria is also being drawn upon for-bran. ' In other ways, however, a dry season in New South- Wales, and especially, in Eiverina, is the reverse of b'oneficial to Victoria. In the meantime Victorian sellers, of chaff are taking advantage of the demand to sell freely. The- price being given in Melbourne is ? 2/7/6 to 2/12/6, .and in Sydney £3 to 8/10/.
