ENSILAGE—ITS VALUE AND COST OF PRODUCTION. (Bj K. Jl. Ivorr, Dairy Supervisor, liew»nioh Kami, Werribee.) In Miccvssltil Uair.v prucLice, from a productivo and economic standpoint, tliu feeding of tho dairy cattle is tho farmer's chiof concern, and it needs very little experience to convince any intelligent farmer that any lack of at toution in- thought on this important subject will .soon ho t.hown by a de creasing yield of the cows, and a fall ing off in condition.

WERNETH. From our Correspondent. The races and sports held here on the 4th uIt. were a great suc cess, there being a large atten - dance. The proceeds are to be .given to the Red Cross society, whose funds will benefit consider- ( ably. The sports were held in Mr A. Lawson's paddock, kindly lent for the purpose.

The lunchedn booth run; by the ladies, where a good cup of tea and as much as you liked to eat could be obtained for sixpence, was crowded all the afternoon, and the revenue from this source very materially helped to swell the revenue; the fruit and soft drinks stall, also, did a good business.

HARVEST THANKSGIVING SERVICES. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 15 March 1916
j HARVEST THANKSGIVING SERVICES. : Harvest thanksgiving services were conducted in the Methodist church on Sunday last by the Rev L. L. Lovell, who preached both afternoon and evening. The church waa tastefully decorated suitable to the occasion. In the > afternoon the preacher based his remarks upon the text which is found in Matt. 21-19, his subject being the "Disappointment ef Unfruitfulness." He likened the fruitless flg tree to the Jew ish nation of that time. It was the only nation that made great professions concerning religion. Christ pointed out that they were like the fruitless fig tree, in that they made a great show by out ward form and ceremony, but were fruitless as far as spiritual life was concerned. He then went on to speak of unrealised expectation. Let us not make a profession without a possession. We must not add to our unfruit lessness the appearance of fruit. He said the fault of the fig tree was not, that it had .no fruit, which was not to be expected at th...
The Pioneer. CRESSY. WEDNESDAY.MARCH 15. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 15 March 1916
Cbe Pioneer. CRESS*. WEDNESDAY.MARCH 15. Senator Pearce assures, us that by June Australia will hava raised its army of 300,000 men without resort to conscription. It is just possible that the Minister of De fence knows something touching voluntary enlistment which is unknown, not only to the man in the street, but to tha editors of great papers and the organisers of big political associations. But that is improbable, for enlistment is determined by the moo«l of young Australians in town and country, a mood on which neither the Australian Defence Depart ment, nor the British War Office, ean have any exclusive informa tion. To most of us it seems clear that the feeling in favor of con scription has grown fast, and is glowing still faster. And, natu rally enough, as it increases, the inclination to enlist voluntarily decreases. Hatred of conscrip tion was a British tradition. In the days of the great Napoleonic wars, the press gang seized men and forced them to fight the battles of th...
