DROWNED IN YARRA WOUND SELF-INFLICTED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

BROWNED IN YARRA WOUND SELF-INFLICTED .Death from drowning was the find ing returned by Dr. R. H. Cole, the Coroner, at an inquest held on January 24 concerning the death of John Knowles, who was found in the Yarra at Heidelberg a week previously. Valentine Knowles, son of John Knowles, said that, his father was ill on January 8, and when the doctor visited him he informed him that he had taken strychnine. He had been taken to the hospital, where he re mained till January 13, and then re turned home. Crawford Henry Mollison, legally qualified surgeon, gave evidence that he had examined the body. In the throat there was a wound, which ap peared to have been self-inflicted sh.ortly before death. The Coroner said there was no evi dence to show the state of Knowles's mind at the time of death.

IMMIGRANT LADS SUCCEED MINISTER ANSWERS REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

1 1 . ■ o IMMIGRANT JjAI)S SUCCEED e MINISTER ANSWERS REPORT That small farms are of greater value than large ones in affording an agricultural training to youths is the view of Victoria's Immigration Minis ter. - ' Among the recommendations made by the Dominion Trades Commission in their interim report, when the sub ject of immigration was being referred to, was that, in the training of lads, a fuller use should be made of the me thods adopted at Pitt Town, New South Wales. Pitt Town is, according to the report, an admirable institution. Mr F. W. Hagelthorn, Minister in charge of immigration, in commenting on this recommendation, to-day, stated that the experience in Victoria was that a boy going on to a small farm, with its full equipment of machinery and stock, had a very much better op portunity of learning the rudiments of agriculture than he would as one of a hundred lads on a farm where there was necessarily a very indifferent equipment for such a large number. The lads broug...

DRAUGHT HORSE STUD BOOK NOW IN PREPARATION [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

DRAUGHT XIORSE STUD BOOK NOW IN PREPARATION The committee of the Draught Horse Stud Book of Australia is now engaged in revising- the pedigrees of the "horses entered for Volume VIII. It will be two or three weeks before this work is completed, and Mr l3chwieger, secretary of the Royal Ag ricultural Society of Victoria, states that entries which come to hand dur ing this period will be included in that volume. Particular interest attaches to re gistration at the present time, for the council of the Royal Agricultural So ciety has decided to permit only re gistered Clydesdales and registered Shires to compete in their respective sections at future shows, and all un-; registered horses will have to compete in a separate section. Horse breeders now recognise that re gistration in the Draught Horse Stud Book of Australia considerably en hances the value of their horses, and it is therefore not surprising to find that a large number of belated applica tions for registration are now comin...

THE LANDS DEPARTMENT DISSATISFIED LAND SEEKER NEED FOR RE-ORGANISATION NEW SYSTEM DEMANDED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

DISSATISFIED LAND SEEKER ■NEED FOR RE-ORGANISATION NEW SYSTEM DEMANDED By "YARRAN" When he took office as Minister for Lands Mr Lawson made the bold de claration that he would speed up the business of the Lands Department. He seemed to wish that branch of the Public Service to realise his ideal of efficiency, and hence he was deter mined to make a brave effort at re organisation. It is not uncommon for new Ministers of Lands to start out with these big and laudable ideas, but so far not one of Mr Lawson's predecessors has been able to reduce the cumbersome machine to a reason able condition of effective activity. The officers in it are too often content to perform the obvious duty, and no more. This, at least, is a fair criti cism of the methods pursued by the Department as a seller of Crown lands. The official Year Book tells us that we have 27,103,761 acres of Crown lands, yet except for a peri odical list of lands for sale the men accessible to the public do not know what State a...

Sorghum [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

Sorghum Of sorghum, Professor Perkins says figures cannot adequately picture the Value of sheep to farmers with a 17 inch (or over) rainfall. "In the ma jority of cases," he continues, "we have looked upon sorg-hum as a crop more useful to our dairy herd than to sheep; 2nd, with a view to preventing .waste, "wo have generally cut the crop first and grazed-of£ the second growth. I may, however, be allowed, to emphasise the value of sorghum to the owner of sheep. This crop makes summer growth, and, if needed for the purpose, may befed down or cut in December or January. Its chief advantage, how ever, lies in the fact that .it makes very good second growth, which may be left standing until lambing time, and in which the ewes may drop their lambs at a time of the year, when, apart from exceptional seasons, there is generally a scarcity of good natural feed. It is, of course, true that, in most cases the adoption of this practice will lead to the loss of the field for cereals in that sea...

THE WHEAT MARKET PRICES AND PROSPECTS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

THE WHEAT MARKET 0 1 PRICES AND PROSPECTS The world's wheat markets are re ported by cable to be firmer in tone, owing to the expectation of smaller world's shipments. Such a proba bility is, so far, borne out by the large decrease in last week's shipments, which have been cabled at 1,155,000 quarters as compared with 1,840,000 quarters for the.previous week and 1,425,000 quarters for the correspond ing' week last year. In their weekly wheat report, dated Sydney, January 22, Messrs L/indley, Walker and Company state that there appears to be an undercurrent of strength in the forward position in Sydney, due largely to covering by short sellers who sold at fairly low prices. Final returns from country wheat centres all refer to the disap pointing yields in the late crops in New South Wales. Several districts which expected an average of 15 bushels will not equal more than 9 bushels to the acre, and some returns put average yields below this. It is pretty certain that the official figu...

THE STANDARD FIXED. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

THE STANDARD FIXED. On January 23 the corn trade sectional committee of the Chamber of Commerce fixed what is known as a fair average quality (f.a.q.) of Victorian wheat for the present season. Over 800 samples from different districts were received. These were thoroughly mixed, •'Sand the weight of an Imperial bushel w*as found to be 62%lb. This year the samples varied more than usual. From the Goulburn Valley, the wheat was bright and plump, some of it being described as the finest ever obtained. From other areas results were not so satisfactory. The wheat was pinched. In many in stances it had an unusually liberal ad mixture of oats and. other "foreign" matter, the presence of which naturally tends to lower the standard. Repeated weighing of bushel-lots taken from the heap on January 23 gave the weight as 62%lb. net, and on the formal mo tion of Mr H. B. Black, seconded by Mr J. Gatehouse (M'inifie and Company) the f.a.q. standard for 1914 was fixed at that weight.

THE HORSE VARIETIES OF HAY. IMPORTANCE OF QUALITY INFLUENCE ON WORK [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

VARIETIES OF HAY. IMPORTANCE OF QUALITY INFLUENCE ON WOT?TC A few weeks ago there were publish ed in these columns opinions of Aus tralian farmers regarding the influence of quality in hay upon the amount of work obtained from horses. The "Farmer and Stockbreeder." an TOnsr lish authority on live stock matters, in the last issue available, publishes an interesting article on the subiect. The provision of sufficient hav of suitable quality, it says, is in its" wav quite as important a feature in main taining' good working condition in horses as an adequate allowance of grain, for the one is no les.s an indis pensable requirement than the other. This applies with especial force to horses used af fast paces, it being: a commonplace in stable management that in the case of these their hav should be more carefully selected, and requires to be of better aualitv than it need be for carthorses doine: slow work, partly for the reason that a higher standard of hard condition is called for in ...

General [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

General Great Britain is experiencing thr» severest weather that has been known for several years. January 23 was the coldest day for a year in England there being- 11 degrees of frost in Lon don and 17 degrees in country dis tricts. Kivers and lakes are coated with ice, and racing at Kempton Park was postponed on the ground that it was impossible to hold the meeting. France and Germany are also suf fering from a cold wave. Charcoal braziers are burning in the principal streets of Paris for the benefit of the poor. Work has been resumed by the coal porters, who went on strike last week. The men have gone back to work believing that their demands will be submitted by their employers to arbi tration. Mr Lee Temple, a well-known Eng lish aviator, was making a steep de scent at Hendon, when the wind caught the tail of his Bleriot monoplane and overturned it. The monoplane fell 100ft. to the ground, and struck heavily. The machine was only slightly damaged, but the aviator was found lyin...

CABLE BUDGET Imperial Affairs STRIKERS DEPORTED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

CABLE BUDGET Imperial Affairs STRIKERS DEPORTED Great excitement has been caused throughout South Africa by the action of the' Government in deporting to England ten of the men who were among the leaders in the recent strike. ■ » . The utmost secrecy was maintained by the Government and officials in regard to the matter. The ten men arrived at Durban in a special train. The docks were guard ed by police • and members of the Natal Mounted Rifles. The passage from the train to the steamer Umgeni was also guarded. Swiftly the men were placed aboard, and the steamer instantly sailed. It is stated by the agents for the vessel that she will call at Las Palmas. The hearing of the application to prevent the deportation of the men was resumed before the Full Court at Pretoria. Mr F. H. P. Creswell, M.L.A., leader of the Labor Party, who was recently sentenced to a term of imprisonment, but was released, gave evidence as to the deportation of the men. Mr Justice Wessels said that he regretted...

PEERYBINCLE PAPERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

How glad Sir John Madden must be that he is not Mr King O'Malley! This was the first reflection that oc curred to me when I read of how Sir John had provided a solution of a mystery that had been agitating the public mind for a couple of weeks. The mystery I refer to was the one that until Foundation Day surrounded the sudden and appalling sacrifice by Sir John of what was at once an un equalled means of identification and a thing of intrinsic beauty. X mean, of course, the vice-regal moustache. While he possessed that notable adornment of his upper lip Sir John was never in any danger of being ar rested for a crime he had not com mitted fourteen years ago; neither was there any chance of his being mis taken for an actor (an unpleasant mis chance at any time) or "one of the knuts," all of whom must, of course, be clean shaved. Very few people knew why the Lieutnant - Governor had emulated Monsieur Beaucaire by "assassinating his poor moustache, until his Excellency took the public i...
