TOBACCO CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
TOBACCO CULTIVATION. The progress of tobacco cultivation in Australia is slow and unsatisfac tory, yet there is an immense field open to successful growers. Take the following figures from a Paris con temporary:-At the lowest computa tion the world's consumption of to bacco represents £30,000,000 annually.

SUSSEX-STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
SUSSEX-STREET. Onions, "which were something of a drug in the market, are in better favour, and though best reach £2/10/ per ton, prices may Harden in a short time. Potatoes are in fair request, but owing to the arrival of 7139 bags of Tasmanian redskins, by the Kakapo and Glaucus, the best price obtainable is £7/5/. Very few bags have been condemned, and the threatened famine is not so much feared. There is in "the Street," the usual activity that precedes a run of holidays, and there have been more "rush'' orders from country store keepers and others, to be filled before Good Friday arrives. The general average forage coming forward is far from prime, and consignors have often only themselves to blame for their poor returns. There is ready sale for all cnoice lots. Prices may be quoted as follows: Oats.-Tasmanian, best . milling white, Sparrowbills, 2/10, giants, 2/8 to 2/11-; Algerian milling, 2/4 to 2/0; fe.ed, 2/3 to 2/5 per .bushel. . . Maize.-Victorian) prime yellow, 2/6 to 2...
AN UNFAIR PRACTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
AN UNFAIR PRACTICE. "Fair Dinkum" writes to the "Mait . land Mercury" in condemnation of the practice (1) of a person showing ex hibits, and winning prizes in his own and other names, for the purpose of gathering in as much of an associa tion's, prize money as he can; and (2) of non-members who to avoid paying the entrance fee which is not charge able to members, enter their exhibits in the name of a member, who may or may not be a relative. He says: It is a question which .is the worse case of the two. In the first, A evin ces .no moral scruples iri obtaining money under false pretences, or in defrauding the association of their prize money, and in the latter in stance we can only say of 33 that he is well in the running as the "cham pion inean man" Neither offender considers the primary objects and aims, of an . agricultural- . association, neither can he be said to be doing his duty towards it. Associations do not encourage that kind of thing, and so far as I can see the only rea...

BETTER CLOSE THE GATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
BETTER CLOSE THE GATE. Several persons have been fined at Tamworth Police Court for leaving open gates in rabbit-proof fences. The Stock Inspector, on behalf of the P.P. Board, was the prosecutor, for whom Mr. A. J. Creagh appeared. He said the board did not wish to press for a heavy penalty, as these were the first prosecutions, but it had become a rather general prac tice to leave the rabbit-proof gates open, and complaints had been made about it. The Act seemed to assume that it was rather a serious matter, as the first penalty was fixed at im prisonment for six months, and then, possibly as an afterthought, a fine not exceeding £100. The P.M. pointed out that further on the Act said imprisonment and fine. He told the first defendant, L. H. Smith, who had pleaded guilty, that as a land owner, he should know the necessity of closing these gates. Defendant denied that the fence was rabbit proof, because it was broken in seve ral places. J. D. Rixon and H. Man uel also pleaded guilt...

FASHION'S FANTASIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
FASHION'S FANTASIES. In view of the coming winter the schoolgirls' every-aay frocks are now mostly made of dark-blue serge, 'x'hey are absolutely plain, and re lieved only by a small yoke and col lar of net easily removed and laun dered. Either a belt of the serge or one of patent leather is worn with this neat little blouse and skirt de sign, which is generally made in one, though some prefer tliem separate in order that different blouses may be worn with the same skirt. It is well to observe here tnat if the costume is in separate pieces the skirt should either be hookeu or buttoned on to the blouse to prevent the latter from rucking up. Especially is this neces sary if the bodice ana sleeves are cut in one. When cut in one they should be quite loose under the arms. For clotli gowns, rouglily finished ma terials are invariably used, and a new material, called ratine, is also much in evidence. The various crepes, and creppns are intended for more elaborate wear. Cashmere de soie, a...
HOUSEHOLD HELPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
HOUSEHOLD HELPS. It is a good plan when bathing a young infant to put a towel in the bottom of the bath ana place the tfliild on it. This prevents the baby from slipping, also from coming in contact with u*e hard surface of the bath. Benares vases should be washed with soap and water, and then well rubbed with a cut lemon. Plunge into boiling water . and dry at once, and they will have a brilliant polish. All chased brass can be treated in tins way. If you have not a mincing machine, note the different ways of using a suet grater. Grate candied peel for cakes ; peel is much nicer grated than coming across lumps of peel when eating cake. Also grate all vegetables for a stew, they blend much nicer. Rub a stained umbrella with a rag dipped in methylated spirits, and the stains will disappear. To take ink out of boards, apply sjairit of salt to the stains with a piece of rag. Afterwards wash well with water. To stop a leak in a gas or water pipe, beat some whitening up into some yellow ...

DONCASTER AND CUP. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
DONCASTER AND CUP. Ere another issue of this journal sees the light, the Doneaster and Sydney Cup of 1911, will haves been disposed of. The Doneaster is listed for to-mor row (Saturday), and the Cup fox Monday next-Easter Monday. The Doneaster is the most open looking sprint event that has been run nere for years, and almost every horse in the race has been backed. It is different in the Cup, as proved stayers are scare, and betting has been practically confined to half a dozen. At the time of writing, the final acceptances are not known, but it is safe to predict that the fields will be large in each event, particularly in the Doneaster, and, for once in a way, horses owned in the neigh bouring States seem to possess an undeniably good chance of appropria ting the double. There are some fast horses representing the Mother State in the mile, and some good stayers to battle on our behalf in the long distance event. Both races promise to provide great finishes. In the Doneaster the ha...
