Personal Statements of well-known People So many people get run down at this time of the year that the need of a tonio .may be- regarded as :universal just oDW. There are many tonics, but the supreme tonic-the tonic par, excellence --is Sanatogen. There is no doubt of that. Nearlty sixteen thousand physicians have, of' their own- accord, . testified to its revitalising and energising qualities, which are unapproached by. anything else, These qualities are simply due to Its "organic " s.instituents, which feed and tone the chier f ndctiois of the body. To the effect it produces the following statements testify:- Sir GILBERT PARKER, M.P., writest " have used Sanatogen with extra. ordinary benefit.-- It .is to my mind a true food tonic, feeding the nerves, in creasing the energy, and giving fresh vigour to the overworked body and mind." Sir JOHN HARE writes: "I have found Sanatogen a most valuable tonic and stimulant during a :period when I had to work very hard under conditions-of gre...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN BORDER. Mount Gambier. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

SOUTH AUSTIIALIAN BORDER. [FROMOUR CORRnnEsPONDENT.] Mount Gambier. The attempt to force the, rural workers' log on the farmers in the Mount Gam bier distirict has not met with sulccess. They got through their. hay and grain harvesting with little or no friction, on the old lines, and now the thrashing is in satisfactory progress. :Under present con ditions farmers are making :up their minds to cultivate less, and devote more attef'-' tion to stock. They say that sheep fa't ening and wool growing, year in and year out, will pay fully as well as grain gro*i' ing, and .with less .labor, ..A recent sale of a 50-acre farm in this district realised £2020. Last week has been the hbusiest in shipping at Kingston during the wool season. " The weather keeps very cool fr the season, and high winds are frequent. As many of the farmers are engaged with their hay the wind is a hindrance.

SUGAR BEET GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

SUGAR BEET GROWING. Sir,k-As far as Iilmany, Park fs concerned, no satisfactory crop of beet have been produced, not even on the Government plots, where the land is the highest priced on the estate. The 'highest .r turn la-t season was not quite 6 tons to the acre, and. this year the crops ?do not' appear nearlyr as good as last. Eilmany Park should not be class~e with Boisdale as a similar clas of land. Thet the totally different, and cannot be compared olfe with the other. However, the main point I want to empliasise is that no 6-ton per acre crop of beet, cpsting at least -£0 per acre to grow, can be' considered satisfactory.-Yours, &c., -SETTLER, Tjl?aany Soutih, 2Srd January.

IS ANY MAN WORTH MORE THAN £5000 A YEAR? [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

6IS ANY MN, WORTH MORE THAN £5000 A YEAR.? Charles S. Mellen, until recently, Presi dent of the New York, New Haven, and Hartford"Railway, and one of Amnerica's representative captains of industry, has caused much indignation among the high salaried, executives of the United States by declaring that no man's serices to a corporation are worth more than £5000 a year, which is ten times the. amount once fixed by Mr. John ,Burns. Mr. iMellcn's own salary, as .licad of the great .New Eng land Railway Corporation, was several times that amount, ibut he confesses he would have, worked just as. hard for £5000 a year as he did for the larger sum. Mr. Mellen's argument is tliat whoever is cap able of earning £5000) a. year must show capacity equal to the. task of directing; any enterprise whatever.

TILLAGE AND PASTURE. THE THORPDALE DISTRICT. VALUE OF CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

THE THORPDALE DISTRICT. VALUE OF CULTIVATION. [MY'OUR AGRICULTURAL REPORTER.] Thorpdale is an agricultural centre situ ated in the valley of the Narracan Creek, which is a branch of the Latrobe River. It is reached by a spur line eleven miles long striking to the south of Moe;,where it leaves the main (Gippsland railway. Stand ing 800 feet above sea level, the township of 'Thorpdale is located in picturesque and salubrious surroundings. . The rainTill is heavy, ranging boetween 40 and 50 inches, while the great bulk of the adjacent land is fertile in character. In its original state the whole of the district was heavily, tim bered. It is said that the first selectors were axemen rather than farmers, and to this circumstance is ascribed the fact that the :pioneers concentrated their efforts more upon making money out of the tibees than.upon rendering the soil fruitful. In the general neglect of agrictilture that marked the first 20 years' history of the dlistriet there was wholesale ...

THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

THE F.A.Q.- STANDARD. Sir,-The process of striking the standard of quality on which Victorian wheat is sold, which took place in -Me.bourne last week, is thus described by the corn trade itself, thus admiging everything that has been said in the past as rto its crudeness, inefficacy and unfairness to the growers of a good quality of grain. IIro is the stiatemcnt:-The F.A.Q. standard for Victorian wheat was struck yesterday by the Corn Trade Sedtional Committee of the Chainber of Com mnerce. To commnunercial ancn this embodies they whole statement of the case. But to the general public, most of whom have no idea what F.A.Q, means, the byre statemenit is unmeaning. F.A.Q., then, stands for "Fair average quality." For whefat runs in all shapes and sizes, from the large. plump grain to the shrivelled aborted reed from a bad crop, and from the quality whichl mills well to that which does exactly the reverse. And as shippers can hardly specify that they want fat wheat or lean wheat, or wh...

STUBBLE BURNING. AS AFFECTING THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

AS AFFECTING, THE: SOIL. ...Science and .practical farming..on this matter are a. httle conflicting. Wheat growers on the western plains between Gheringhap aind MAaroona assert that the evidence is undeniable that the crops which had to. follow on stubble in 1911 Without the advantage of "burning off," because of the wetness of the seasop, were in every instance greatly. inferior to those sown on the unirnt land. It is believed by many that burning off improves the fertility of the soil by the ashes left after the burning. On the other hand,' in a paper upon this subject, Professor Ewart points out that the experience of others has led them to deny 'either that stubble burning does improve the fertility of the soil or that, if there is any effect, it can be dclue to the 'ashes of the crop. In some South Aus tralian experiments the effects were com pared : of scattering ashes over one plot and burning rubbish on another. The 'ex perinment, though a crude one, showed in favor of the l...
