FARMERS' STALLION CLUBS. A CO-OPERATIVE MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

FARMERS' STALLION CLUBS. ._A' CO-OPERATIVE MOVEMENT. In: Great: Britain one :of. the most .popu lar, of the many schemes of co-operation devised amongst farmers is that of a given number-of; owners of draughit mares of the same district, or county, associating; them selves together to procure a higii class ,superior stallion for their joint services. In some.'parts of-England these organisa tions bear the name of stud companies, but -'their most popular title is perhaps: .horse clubs. An English stock .journal, commenting on this system, state. that tIe stallion is oftener hired than purchased,. as a more valuable one may be procured thereby in return for the money the club could afford to subscribe. After being obtained the horse is stationed at a cen tral spot, under the charge of' a horse keeper, and the details of procedure and after management are made, so fair to all the associated members, by the observ ance of a few simple rules, that we sel dom, if ever, hear of any dispute...

THE TYROLEAN FRUIT CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

THE TYiROLEAN FRUIT CASE SWhen the Tyrolea-;nfruit-case was under examination at the Government.Cool .Stores last week surprise was expressed at the absence of any- provision for ventilation; besides a paper lining there was a layer of cotton wool or wadding, which acted as an effectual non-conductor. Mr. W.--HJ Warren, who exports thousands of cases of apples to Germany every season, stated that. the officers& of the German may, boats invariably called attention to a paper lin ing,'to which they decidedly.objected. In the case under notice the fruit was in good condition, but this, it was conisidered, was due to.the fact that it came alone. Sevei'al thousands packed in the. same way would have met with disaster. Some of the exporters present were of opinion that the sample case was only one in which fruiit was repacked to suit a, parr ticular market. A similar interpretation was put upon the Trade Commissioner's report, in which he said that a great many of .the Australian ...
