The Mother State. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

The SViotheir State. i —— Take, on the other hand, the mother State of New South Wales, whose out side trade, although larger than that of any other of the other States, could be immeasurably larger. Take New South Wales wines just as an illustra tion. Here is an industry worth 110 less than £3,000,000 to the State, and one which offers an easy solution of the "back to the land" problem. Ari the dry wines of Australia as well known abroad as they should be? The consumption of wine by the French troops during the war is alone an indi cation of the market there is for this commodity, the food and health value of which, prohibitionists notwithstand ing, was attested by the medical staffs of the French army. Or take the Lee ton canned fruits in the great Murrum bidgee scheme. Expert opinion is that better canned fruits are not turned out. in America, but it is safe to say that, abroad. Leeton is no more known than is, say, Campbelltown in Tasmania. The Murrumbidgee irrigation scheme is,...

A Weather Office. FOR CONVEYING WARNING TO AIRMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

A Weather Office, i * i FOR CONVEYING WARNING TO AIRMEN. There has just been completed a new weather office which will be one of the most important weather offices in the world, for it is the British of I lice for telling air pilots all about the I weather. i Till the war began the weather ex ! perts did not worry very much about j the state of the weather two or three | mile high, but aeroplanes nowadays are so constantly flying at that height that it is important to find out what is happening up there. It is likely, in fact, that aeroplanes along the big aerial routes will always fly fairly high, because the winds at that height are far more regular than they are near the ground. The new weather office will forecast what the weather will be like not only, say, at London and Rome for a pilot who is flying between those two places, but all along the route, near the ground and high up. It will tell pilots when they may expect to run into a storm, how fast the wind will blow, and in w...

Water Famine. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

Water Famine. The Hunter District Water Board has been compelled to prohibit pump ing for irrigation purposes. Such edict proclaims want of foriesight on the part of the Government. With weirs at proper intervals the creeks would carry an assured supply for all pur poses. Sooner or later the Hunter River must be weired, and if the Go vernment will not accept a reasonable scheme and give immediate effect to same, then all obstacles to private en i—'/HI—IL- H J terprise should be promptly removed, and the best interests of the people : would then be conserved and pro moted.

The Shah's Throne. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

The Shah's Throne. The Shah's throne itself is the most valuable one in the whole world, and its enormous dimensions and exquisite decorations would inspire a multi millionaire with awe. It is made of pure white marble, and is no less than eighteen feet by ten feet wide. The actual seat is mounted on a large platform of the same ma terial, and is upheld by fourteen spot less ivory pillars, carved in the shape of men and women; while the whole is covered with pictures worked in the purest gold-leaf. Ascending to the platform is a stair case of solid gold, and in front of the monarch's seat is a magnificent silver fountain which continually sprays a stream of a very exquisite scent. This extremely valuable but extra ordinary throne, however, is not now the official seat of Persian kings, for, not many years ago, the then ruling Shah commanded that a less elaborate throne should be used on occasions of state. It is still used, however, at rare cere monies when ancient Persian rites are...

New State. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

New State. The agitation for the creation of a new State north of "Sydney as an anti dote for the present system of cen . tralisation has assumed proportions far in excess of the ideas of the pri mary promoters of the project. To embrace an area containing Lismore, Grafton, Inverell, Tamworth and New castle is preposterous. The original suggestion to include only the lands drained by the Hunter River and its tributaries may have some merit, but the scheme now being supported by * interested parties must lead to pre cisely the same condition of affairs as has called forth the present protest against the metropolis. s

Censors. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

Censors. Picture films are subject to censor ship in this State, but it would appear as if the power of the censor is very limited. His jurisdiction should be extended to the titles of the films, and to the flaring and questionable ad vertisements concerning same which appear in the daily press. As things are at present, the Divorce Courts, Quarter Sessions, and Picture Shows seem to provide the majority of the sensational double-headers which it is now the fashion to prominently dis play.

Weddings Between Moving Picture Artists. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

Weddings Between Moving Picture Artists. There is a fixed idea in the public mind that theatrical marriages are failures, and the public's lip has got into the habit of curling every time a star of the footlights turns his or her step towards the altar. But the true facts of the case are probably these: That, whilst the mar riage calamities of a famous person age are public gossip almost before they happen, the years of quiet, un disturbed, happy married life enjoyed by another of equal celebrity are quite unknown outside his or her immediate circle of friends. The probabilities are that there are just about the same number of marriage failures among stagefolks as among clerks and cooks and school teachers, and all the rest of us. At all events, there is one sphere of the theatrical world where the wed ding-ring becomes a token of very real comradeship and contentment. And that is Motion-Picture Land. Perhaps the success of the average movie marriage is due to the simple, daylight w...

THE ORCHARD HARVESTING APPLES AND PEARS. Some Points for the Picker. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

THE ORCHARD HARVESTING APPLES AND PEARS. Some Points for the Picker. With most varieties of apples ana pears it is necessary to go over the trees more than once, as they do not all mature at the one time, and the earlier specimens on a tree will not hang until the later ones on the same tree are fit. In picking some of the earlier varie ties of pears, such as Williams', which will ripen even when picked very green, or some of the earlier apples as cookers, it is usual and quite satisfac tory to pick as soon as the fruit has attained a saleable size. But in deal ing with the later varieties, maturity must be taken into consideration. There are several indications by which this can be judged, and a decision should be arrived at by observing each. The browning of the pips, for instance, cannot be relied upon by it self, but the condition of the flesh must also be taken into consideration. The flesh when cut or bitten should have lost its woody texture, and show some juiciness. When tas...

Agricultural and Psatoral Notes. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

Agricultural an FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND. I The last weekly circular, bearing the ! above headings, issued by the Depart ment of Agriculture, contains the fol lowing articles: — DAIRYING. THE FEEDING OF DAIRY CALVES. Appetite as a Guide. Experiments have been conduct ed by the Agricultural Experiment Station, Iowa State College of Agri culture, U.S.A:, to determine, among other things, the effect of permitting growing calves to select' their own feed, and the relative palatability of ground and unground grain to calves. Three calves (two heifers and a bull), in growthy condition, were subjected to experiment for two periods of thirty days each. They were given as much whole milk as was thought to be suited to their needs, but skim milk was used to replace part of the whole milk as they became older; shelled maize, cracked maize, whole oats, ground oats and other feeds were placed in separate compartments of a feeding trough; a supply of lucerne hay of medium quality was kept before t...

Federal Capital. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

4 Federal Capital. The Australian public has never ac cepted the name of Canberra as being / appropriate for the Commonwealth Capital. At best, the name amounts to a compromise between envious States and jealous legislators. Twenty years of Federation should have brought about a more reasonable con dition of affairs, and the offending title should be removed without further delay.

Real estate in the vicinity of New castle is rapidly increasing in value. This natural increase must not be ac cepted as warranting undue inflation of property values in remote areas. Artistic posters depicting "P. and O." liners proceeding to Wallsend via Iron bark Creek should not be taken too seriously by the investing public.

For some years past many thought ful Australians, probably the large majority, who have given any con sideration to the subject, have been impressed with the wastefulness and other serious faults of the system, or series of systems, prevailing in the Commonwealth under which, appar ently, a population of five millions of people need the services of seven Governors, seven Governments, four teen Houses of Parliament, and of the small army of officials necessitated by the existence of so many dignitaries and institutions. The opinion is now very widely held that the time is ripe for the introduction and adoption of some measure of unification under which the legislative and administra tive business of the Federation w...

Burglars' Big Haul. A QUEEN'S JEWELS STOLEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

Burglars5 Big Haul. A QUEEN S JEWELS STOLEN. The case of the theft of diamonds, estimated to be worth £15,000, from Prince Yusupoff's flat in London re cently, calls to mind other big jewel thefts. Prince Yusupoff is, of course, the man who slew Rasputin, and the theory has been advanced that the robbery was in some unexplained way connected with that most mysterious > affair. The probability, however, is1 that it was just an ordinary theft, organised by one of those gangs of in ternational crooks who make a speci ality of watching the movements of royal possessors of costly gems. Into this class, also, falls the rob bery of jowellery belonging to Queen Amelia of Portugal at Richmond. Entrance to the house was effected while the family was at dinner, and heirlooms of great value, including a number of presents from King George and members of other royal families, were carried off. Luckily, however, the thief was dis turbed by servants moving about, and so did not get away with ne...
