THE WAR. A communique issued at Paris de clares that " as the result of a vigorous offensive we have captured several trenches at Auchney (near La Bassee), and at Loos (near Lille), and St. Laurent, five miles north-west of Eeeho.

WEARING AWAY O[?] MOTHER EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 23 December 1914

WEARING AWAY 0; MOTHER EARTH. Investigations by the '^itcd States geological survey or tne erosion o( numerous drainage.. basins of the United States show that the surface of the country is being removed at the average rate of about an inch in 7G0 years. Though this amount seems trivial when spread over the surface of the country, it becomes stupendous when considered as a total, or even in separate drainage basins. Missis sippi Hiver, for instance, carries an nually to tbe soa 136,400,000 tons of dissolved matter and 310,500,000 toui of suspended iratter, r.nd of this total Ohio River carries s:VJr»0,000 tons and Missouri Kivcr contributes more than twice as much. IV.orado Iiiver, which lias built up for itself a vast delta, brings down more sus pended matter than any other liver in the United States, delivering an nually 3S7 tons for each square mile of its drainage basin, or a total of 100,740,000 tons. The rivers of the Unitedrftates carry to tidewater every year 270.000,(K'O to...

Protection and the Price of Wheat. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 23 December 1914

Protection and the Price of Wheat. TO THE EDITOR. Silt,—In an ordinary year Australia produces millions of bushels of wheat for export. The result is that such wheat is sold in the open market in free competition with wheat grown in cheap labor countries. And further, the price our farmers get in London decides the price they will getjocally for the.quanti ty required for Australian use. The duty on wheat, therefore, in a good year is a farce.' It affords no pro tection to the farmer. The only time it could help him would be in a lime of drought when local crops are not equal to local needs. In a year like the pre sent, for instance, it would enable the grower to get another shilling a bushel, apart of course, from the action of the Slate Government in commandeering the harvest at a fixed price. The Federal Government has now stepped in and declared that it is wrong to have a wheat tax when there is a local shortage. The duty has been sus penJed. So that or. cne of the very rare occ...

100 WELL KNOWN TO NEED AN "AD." [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 23 December 1914

ICO WELL RNOY/N TO NEED AN "AO." This idea that you have lived so Ions in town that everybody knows you anJ you don't need .'o advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advertising, indifference to doing business as :t is done in this day and age, is what ha» enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convincc the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store i$ the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail order house. Of course he cajinot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible but>iie enn keep an advertisement in his I local paper, and see that it is changed, I thus keeping new bargains continually I befor the public. He should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at least once a month. Don't look upon your country newspaper as an object of charity.

The festive season, which is sup posed to bring "Peace on earth, and good will to all men, is again with us, and with this is:ue we complete another year. In looking back during the past twelve months we do not see the same spirit of rejoicing which we have usually to chronicle. In stead it has been a year of sad ness and turmoil such as has never before teen witnessed in the world. There was an almost complete failure of the crops throughout the land owing to the severest drought which has ever visited us. There was no rain during the winter and spring just when we should look for it, and all the labor of the farmer went for nought, or practically so, and on top of this the grass failed, which rendered the position more serious, as there was no feed for the stock. Then on top of this j the terrible war in which practi cally the whole of Europe and parts of the other continents are engaged, bringing in its...
