FOOD FOR PIGS AN IMPORTANT POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
FOOD FOR PIGS AN IMPORTANT POINT. While the first place in pig raising in America is "within the maize zone, and while this grain possesses great advan tages in hastening on condition, it is not without its disadvantages, one of which is said to be a detrimental effect on the fecundity of the breeding stoclc. An American authority recently stated that as one result of this far j mers in the Southern areas, where maize luzuriates, are changing their system of feeding and management, while they still retain maize as the basis of the feeding ration, they aie giving a better proportion of green feeds and peas than formerly. Any locality that will grow a variety of green feed is regarded as the best place for pork production. If it is a locality where dairying is common, no better advantages are required; for given leguminous pasture — clover, lucerne, peas, beans, etc.—as a basis, with a grain feed that can be readily grown and also dairy by-products, the highest grade of pork . can be ...
GOVERNOR=GENERAL RESIGNS LORD DENMAN'S ANNOUNCEMENT EXPRESSIONS OF REGRET [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
LORD DENMAN'S ANNOUNCEMENT EXPRESSIONS OF REGRET His Excellency the Governor-Gene ral, Lord Denman, caused surprise and regret at the luncheon of the Aus tralian Natives' Association at the Ex hibition by announcing in the follow ing- terms that he had resigned his office:—■ "I desire to mention a personal mat ter which may not be without interest to some of those present; a matter, I may add, of very sincere regret to my self, that is, that I have resigned the appointment I have the honor to hold, and shall be leaving Australia during the course of this year. I do not wish to weary you with reasons which have prompted me to take this step, beyond saying that indifferent health has been one of them. "I can assure 3rou that X did not arrive at the decision to resign with out very careful deliberation, and without endeavoring to be guided by public rather than by private consid- j erations. "I had considered, for instance, as j an alternative, whether I should ask for leave to return ...
Australian Fruit in London [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
Australian Fruit in London Mr John Dennis, a fruit-broker, of Covent Garden, has taken advantage of the fact that the law of libel only ap plies to individuals and not to nations. He has, with much indignation, repudi ated allegations made here in refer ence to the manner in which Australian fruit is treated in the London markets. It is something in the way of a coin cidence that Mr A. "W". Smart, who is one of the directors of the Victorian Orcha.rdists' Co-operative Association, should And occasion to repeat those al legations. Allowing for that percentage of prejudice which finds its way into most human utterances, it is fairly clear that the Victorian fruitgrower has a good deal to complain of, and has not been properly treated by the brokers cf Covent Garden. It seems to be fairly established that some of the salesmen wer8 interested in retail shops themselves, and extended a por tion of their ingenuity in keeping; down the price of Victorian fruit. It is all very well for Mr D...
Extension of Wireless Business [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
Extension of Wireless Business The perfection of communication will be reached when every house has its own wireless telegraph, or, what seems more likely in the near future, its own wireless telephone. Mr Wynne, the Postmaster-General, has some inkling of this,v because he is considering the feasibility of permitting stationholders who dwell remote from a telegraph or telephone end to erect on their own premises their own wireless stations. These will speak to the nearest official wireless station, and the message will then be transmitted along the wires. In this way many people who have no im mediate prospect of being linked up by costly telegraph wires will have the far cheaper wireless. The difference in cost is not merely in the installation, but in the upkeep. It seems a sound proposi tion provided, of course, that it is as cheap as promised, and that the station employes can learn to operate and put the outfit in working order should it go wrong. The man in town will rejoice ...
Passing of a Great Man [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
Passing of a Great Man In the death of Lord Strathcona Britain has lost one of those men who have given her peculiar distinction— men who are patriotic to the point of nostalgia, but. who are prepared to go to the ends of the earth on the duty of Empire. Britain has been prolific in the production of men of this char acter, and they are greater than they seem to contemporaries. Famous men of history have a certain relief im parted to them, and they stand out with a prominence of their own. Every generation is somewhat prone to belittle itself and glorify the past; but, as a sober fact, the men of to-day are a3 great as any of whom our history holds record. Cecil Rhodes, Sir Henry Parkes, Sir George Grey, and Lord Strathcona were all men made In the same mould and domin ated by great ideas. It is they who weld the Empire into a stronger and more united whole than is possible to any law or mere enactment. They live under, and in turn beget, great senti ments, and give to a whole peopl...
Improving the Port [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
Improving the Port "Wise enterprise is always to be ad mired, and the Melbourne Harbor Trust has furnished a good example in its de cision to borrow over £1,000,000, to be expended on harbor improvements. The sum is a large one, but is well within the discretionary powers of the Board, which has a' programme of some little difficulty before it. The former trust reduced the wharfage rates,and brought down the total revenue very consider ably. It was a necessary thing to do. The rates had been too high previous ly, and a reduction was essential; but the reduction, of course, created new conditions, and it is with those condi tions that the present trust has to con tend. The trade of the port is increas ing with great rapidity, the tonnage of the shipping grows yearly" greater, and harbor-accommodation must keep space with it. Though Nature h£is given Vic toria great advantages, her work re quires supplementing, and there is a large measure of dredging work to be done. The amount conte...

Mr H. J, Nolan, who appeared for pie relatives of Mrs Rickarby, said that he had been instructed to ask for a jury. He thought it was time there were juries in cases of this kind. The Coroner (Dr. R. H. Cole) said he would have been prepared to enter tain the application had it been made earlier. But it was too late now as the body had been buried. Albert 'Francis Smith said he wra's standing on the Fitzroy side of Smith street, near Peel street, and saw a motor-car coming toward a woman who was crossing the road.

GIRD SCREAMS IN TRAIN INTRUDER CAUSES FRIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
GIRIi SCREAMS IN TRAIN INTRUDER CAUSES FRIGHT. When the Fremantle Sound passenger train, which left the Central Station at Perth, W.A., on the night of January 29, came to a standstill at West Leederville, a woman's hysterical sob bing brought a railway employe to the first-class compartment in which a woman, who appeared to be just out of her teens, was crying bitterly. When questioned, she declare.d that while the train had been climbing the steep grade between West Perth and Leederville, a man, a stranger to her, had attempted to assault her. The young woman's story, in the light of the dastardly attack made on Mrs Minnie Thomas, at Cottesloe Beach a week before, caused a sensa- j tion. i The girl gave her name as Elsie Handerside, and said that she had come from Perth with the intention of visiting friends at Cottesloe. She was alone in the compartment until, as the train drew out of the West Perth sta tion, a man climbed aboard on the wrong side of the line. "The man spoke to m...
