A Cricket Accident. A curious and unfortunate in cident happened at Chelthenham on Saturday during a cricket match Chelthenham v. Sandring hatn. W.

100 WELL KNOWN TO NEED AN "AD." [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

100 WELL KNOWN TO NEED AN "AD." This idea lhat you have lived so long In town lhat everybody knows you and you don't need »o advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to adveri'sing, indifference to doing business as °t is done in this day and age, is what has enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section,, and keep them convinced that his store k; the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail ordei house. Of course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper, and see that it is changed, '.hub keeping new bargains continually befor the public. He should also have a mailing list, and send out a circulat letter at least once a month. Don't look upon your country newspaper as an object of charity. There is not a single country newspaper in the State, with a general local circulation, wh...

A Provident Burglar. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

A Provident Burglar. Mr John Emms is a burglar of rather an unusual type. Some time ago the house of a St. Kilda resident was broken into and a sum of £A Is Gd taken. The robbery was traced to Emms, who pleaded guilty and wao sen tenced to a term in gaol, which he is now serving. Somehow or other it transpired that Emms took no risks as regards the pro ceeds of his burglaries, but care fully banked his takings like any other careful, provident business man. The robbed man, a Mr Hingott, obtained know ledge of this fact, and brought an action Try the "Star" Office for Job Printing before going elsewhere, against Emms for the recovery of his money. Emms did not ap pear in person, but sent a solici tor to defend the case, and a good fight was put up, but ev entually Hingott got a verdict for the full amount', with 40s costs against the unfortunate Emms. It is certainly quite a new line to hear of a burglar being success fully sued for the recovery of money stolen by him.

THE Quambatookk Times. OUR MOTTO: "Truth is great, and will prevail." WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

OUR MOTTO : " Truth is great, and will prevail." WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1914. TOWN VERSUS COUNTRY. Recent events show the neces sity of the Coun try party in the Stite House of Parliament to be more active in their efforts to secure justice for the country districts and against the enormous waste of public money in the city. This is becom ing more and more marked of late years. Every facility to make the city more alluring to country residents is being done, and the big metropolis is becom ing over-populated and the unem ployed question is making ilself felt in consequence. One would think that while this country is passing through the present droughty crisis everything would be done to help the farming interests by enabling them to get their wants supplied and provision made to assist them by construct ing water supplies, but country interests arouse no sympathy in the minds of the heads in the city. The marvel is that the farmers and others interested in rural industries submit q...

Improving the Wheat Yield Conserve Soil Moisture. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

Impro v ing the Wheat Yield Conserve Soil Moisture. In the Victorian "Journal of Agricu'.* ture" Mr A. E. Richardson, Agricul tural Superintendent, contributes an articic on the wheat industry. Soil moisture is the limiting factor in Australian wheat production. The soils of the wheat areas are rich enough, but they fall short of yielding heavy crops because of the limited rainfall. That is* one important reason why bare fallowing is regularly practiced in our wheat areas—a practice that may, per 'hap.s, seem wasteful to European ces. In a climate where soil moisture is the limiting factor to production, the raising of prolific xerophytie types which will use transpiied water eco nomically is of the utmost importance. Whatever may be the factors that to gether make up the complex of pro lificacy, it is certain that the ratio of grain to straw is not in the least im portant. Not only must we conserve all moisture possible by the adoption of moisture saving fallows, but it is also of ...
