Theft and False Pretences WHEAT AGENT COMMITTED. STREARY BAY, Wednesday [Newspaper Article] — Port Lincoln Times — 9 December 1927

Theft and False Pretences WHEAT AGENT COMMITTED. STREAR? BAY, Wednesday Before Messrs. J. F. Gardner and C. C. Neale, J's.P., in the Streaky Bay Local Court, George Hervey, agent, was charged with the theft of a cheque for £58 1/- from John Darl ing & Son. Detective Trestrail con ducted the case for the Crown. He submitted that accused had drawn a cheque for wheat alleged 'to have been delivered, and Hervey had used' the cheque for his own purpose. A further charge of falBe pretences was preferred against accused. The mode of fraud, said Detective Trestrail, would be similar to the first offence, a cheque having been drawn for wheat stated to have been delivered by J. F. Matthews, when no such delivery had been received. The amount invovled was £73 13/1. Hervey was then charged with hav ing forged an endorsement on three cheques. He reserved his defence, and was committed for trial.

A DESTRUCTIVE GRUB GRASS AND PASTURE DEVOURED ANXIETY AMONG FARMERS KYANCUTTA, December 6. [Newspaper Article] — Port Lincoln Times — 9 December 1927

A DESTRUCTIVE GRUB GRASS AND PASTURE DEVOURED ANXIETY AMONG FARMERS - KYANCUTTA, December 6. Anxiety is being felt by farmers in the Kyancutta district, through the activities of a species of grub which is destroying pastures and grass. The grub, which resembles the cut worm in appearance, lives beneath the,, ground during the daytime, and ventures out at night. * ! One of the most seriously affected is Mr. A. T. Holman, who has had about 25 per cent, of his grass and pasture devoured, and several others in the district are also suffering. The grub is eating seeds as well as grass, and therefore it will have a serious effect on feed next year if it is not checked. Owing to the dry season, many far mers are short of hay, and it will prove serious if they lose much of their pasture. Mr. H. D. M. Adams (Agricultur al Instructor) visited the district last week, and secured several specimens of the grub, which he sent to Ade laide to .be identified.

Professor R. B. Wattes, tbe .Aus tvalian representative, on ii5s lvtuin to Melbourne. Great interest, he said, had been taken in Australia by Southern Euro pean and African delegates, whose countries possessed conditions similar to those of Australia, which had un doubtedly made a greater success of her wheat lands, considering the low rainfall 'and high evaporation, than any other country in the world. Al though England and America were spending large sums in research, Australia was far behind them in that respect. .

TRANSPORT OF WOOL MOTOR AND RAILWAY COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Lincoln Times — 9 December 1927

TRANSPORT OF WOOL MOTOR AND RAILWAY COM PETITION. The motor-lorry is becoming an in creasing competitor of the railways in the transport of wool in New South Wales. In instances wool has been taken upwards of 300 miles to Sydney by road, but the main com petition so far is over shorter dis tances. As yet the proportion of wool so transported is small, but the growing activities in this direction are a pointer to possibilities in the future, especially as an increase in rail freights is generally regarded as inevitable. The actions of graziers in parts of Riverina in transporting their wool by road, instead of using branch railway lines, called forth a protest recently from the Railways depart ment. This was backed with the argument that as many railway con cessions were granted to the pastoral industry in bad seasons, and amount ing to £90,000 last year. It was up to the woolgrower to give- the railways all his business as a quid pro quo. The motor lorry, however, is get: tingu busi...

DIPPING SHEEP ERADICATION OF TICKS AND LICE [Newspaper Article] — Port Lincoln Times — 9 December 1927

DIPPING SHEEP ERADICATION OF TICKS AND LICE Farmers and graziers are wide awake, to the importance of dipping sheep. . There is no reason why 'ticks' aiid lice should not be com pletely eradicated. Fortunately, the most destructive external parasite, the mite which paiirrk 'scab.' has been .eradicated from Australia, but the 'ticks' and lice are causing a great amount of preventable loss. Different classes of tih«-*p dJp des troy lice and ticks indifferent ways. Npn' poisonous preparations act very quickly ; they kill by contact, and so destroy parasite life. They possess no protective power. Tie flocks can be reinfested in a very short time after the dipping. /^ Non-poisonous dipping- preparations are excellent for temporary control, and for dipping Iambs, but they should not be relied upon for the more lasting effects. The poisonous prep aration is slower in action. It poisons the parasite through the food channel. A thorough dipping deposits the pois on on the skin of the sheep, ...
