WINIAM. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 12 May 1914
WINIAIYI ——:u: (From our own correspondent). Weather conditions are perfect at present. For the month of April 1 78 inches of rain were registered. This causcd a good growth of grass, and put tho land in good order for working. Farmers are pushing: on with seeding operations, sowing both wheat and oats. Bein^ favored with bright warm days it iB possiblo to mako good headway, and there is overy prospect of seoding being com pleted early. Lambing is proceeding under con ditions which are more favorable than has boon tho case for a number of years. There is a fair supply of green grass and the lambs are strong and vigorous. It is evident that there will be a high percentage. Mr W. Pitt Chalmers, Government orchard Inspector, paid an official visit to Mr E. Bound's orchard re cently. The orchard has been work ed during tho past years on linos laid down by Mr Chalmers, and the result has been most satisfactory, ! particularly in spraying and pruning. Mr Chalmers will give a demon stratio...
A STRIKE REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 12 May 1914
A STRIKE REMEDY. So far the world has been unable to find a remedy for strikes in the in dustrial world, and for some years the policy pursued by employers and Arbitration Court, in respect to threatened troubles of this kind, has been concession, sometimes abject, sometimes gambling, but always con cession. No one would dream of re fusing a man or any body of men, the right to refuse work when they feol the wages and conditions attached to that work unfair, but what is equally fair is the right of any other man or body of men to take on that work. The act of striking or refusing to work at any given task would automatically deprive the worker, who has volun tarily ceased to bo a worker, of any proprietary interest in that particu lar form of labor. This, however, the Trades Hall Unions refuses to acknowledge, and they insist on their right to not only refuso work that is distasteful to them, but also to pre vent others taking on that work. It must be remembered that the recog nitio...

News and Notes. PRICE OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 12 May 1914
Jews stmt Jute PRICE OF WHEAT. Our Melbourne correspondent wired yesterday as follows :—Thoro appears to be an opinion in the best-informed quarters that there is not too much "actual'' wheat in the world, for the world's current and prospective demand. The main reason appears to be that North Ainorica and Russia tiro not quito able to provide more woat than the world wants. This is quite apart, of course, from financial or any other stringoncyi The price of wheat at the Nhill mills yesterday was 3/5, oats 1/0;
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. OUT OF THE HURLY BURLY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 12 May 1914
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. •o: " ■ (From our own correspondent./ OUT OF THE HURLY BURLY. Now that Mr Justice Higgins is safely on the sea, with a certainty of a year's respite from industrial dis putes and their settlement on lines always boiiefi'jial to the workers, it might be supposed that there would be a let up in Labor circles as regards increase in w-ig^s. Coincident with His Honor's departure, however, we have signs thnfc more trouble is brew ing. For the last few years the use ful and familiar baker's man has been the despair of the housekeeper, and, I should imagine, the envy of other tradesmen. Provided by law with a holiday eyery month, he is always religiously careful to take not only these but also every other holiday that is going, and in fact carried his respect and rovorence for the holiday law to such an extent that he refused to deliver hot cross buns on Good Friday. It would now seem that all this apparent salf-indulgence by the baker's carter has been nothing but an ...
EFFECT OF SUGAR ON CEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 12 May 1914
EFFECT OF SUGAR ON CEMENT. That sugar in quantities as small as one-quarter of one per cent, of the weight of the cement will completely prevent the oement from setting, and that one or two per cent, of sugar will make the cement set quickly, but will later cause it to disintegrate or break up, has been established by a series of tests conducted by a oliemical engineer, who also claims that the ac- . tion is more pronounced with some co- j ments than with others. Further ox- j periments have failed to dotermino ac curately the cause of the pronounced I action of a small quantity of sugar I apon a large quantity of cement.

THE FLAVOR OF BUTTER INJURED BY METALS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 12 May 1914
THE FLAVOR OF BUTTER IN JURED BY METALS. The United states Dairy Division lias been investigating the effect of tho presenoe of a small amount of iron or copper may have on the flavor, of but ter. They report that very small amounts of these metals in the cream _ pause certain undesirable flavors to increase in intensity during storage.. These flavors are often designated as "met allic," "oily," or "fishy," Experi ments wore carried out, using known quantities of varying from 1 to 500 parts to a million parts of cream.. Tho butter was stored and csaminod at in tervals varying from 20 to 187 days. The most noticcable feature jvas the rapid development of bad flavors in butter containing tho iron. Buttor made from cream which had stood in rusty cans developed a peouliar tasto j easily picked out. Tho influence of j copper was even more marked than that of iron.: Tho work shows that if .cream is kept in rusty cans, or comes in oon tact with iron or copper during tho process of buttor m...

NO NEED FOR WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 12 May 1914
NO NEED FOR WEALTH. Archbishop Can- says:—" If I wore to dio to-day, or any day for that matter, I don't envy any person who is on the look out for any wealth that 12iiay leave behind. They will gain very little. I think it is a wise thing and common sense not to hoard up money. It is different for a man who has to look to the interests of his family. But I believe that a bishop'or an archbishop should be satisfied to live free of debt, and so that when ho dies his funeral expenses can bo paid out of what ho leayos.''
