Olsen, 8th Battalion, 2nd Infantry Brigade, A.I.F., under date 5th Februnry :—: "It is nearly six weeks since I received your Xmas cheer, in the shape of a billy, for which I sin cerely thank you. I ask you to forgive me for not writing before, but this life is not all honey as you no doubt know, and I do no get as much time for writing as I would like.

The world is less sceptical to-day than it has been for many decades. Such boasters as Voltaire, Paine and lngersol have ceased to live and influence the public, and their names arc well nigh forgotten.

He } stated that their had been" a limited J outbreak of enteric fever in Lake View street, three cases being reported.

Seed Wheat Importance of Grading. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 March 1916

Seed Wheat Importance of Grading. Last year, when farmers drilled in the Commonweatlth's record sowing of wheat, seed was scarce, and this season, when the new area under cereals should cover a greater acreage, seed is plentiful. Conditions have changed, but the selection and grading of seed wheat should be carried out as thoroughly as when the farmers had to pay last year's exorbitant prices. Then it was a matter of making the best of a small supply go as far as pos sible. Now the object must be to reject large quantities of bad and indifferent seed. The ideal grow ing conditions of the past year have left an unwelcome legacy in the form of an abnormal yield of wild oats and other weeds. The cul tivated areas are dirty and wced chocked to an extent never before experienced in Victorian wheat culture. The cleaning of the land is an important duty of the season, but while one dut> is to clean the laud, a second and equally impor tant responsibility is placed upon farmers to use se...
