SEED WHEAT FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
SEED WHEAT FOR FARMERS. Consideration is being given by mem bers of the Cabinet to a suggestion made in Parliament that the Government should purchase sufficient wheat for seed next season, and sell it to the farmers at cost price. For several reasons, it is not thought advisable to act liur-. riedly. Mr. W. Hutchinson remarked that the Foodstuffs Commission Bill, passed by Parliament,, would enable accurate statistics to be obtained re garding supplies available. The rough estimate of Mr. A. M. Laughton, Gov ernment Statist, was that 900,000 bush els were held by farmers. It might turn out that farmers had a sufficient quan tity for what was required for seed. For the Government to rush into the market now might further inflate prices. The matter would be kept in mind, but the State did decide to purchase lator on, he did not think it would have to pay a higher rate than was now quoted. The total stock of wheat in Victoria on 30th June was 8,002,311 bushels, and that of flour equiv...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (JTrwa eux Special Cyriwpaadmt) One of the most annoying sources of loss is that caused by pilfering of goods entrusted to the liailway Department for transit. The Department does all possible to detect and weed out the per petrators, and had a brace of them be fore Judge Bagleston the other day. The judge took the right view of a class of crimes the number of which he de scribed as awful, and calling for rigor ous puuishment. He said there must bo a gang of thieves of the most des perate description operating on-the rail ways. They had to a large extent battled -the oilicers employed in Bheet-. ing. home the thefts. Tne last time that ho presided in that court a railway servant was proved to have had £70 worth of stolen goods in his possession. The judge who adjudicated at the next sittings of the Court had boon ever more severe than he had been in regard to his punishment for this class of olfence. At the present sittings of the Court no fewer than eight charges a...

"THE TEETH OF THE HORSE AND ITS AGE." [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
"THE TEETH OF THE HORSE AND ITS AUE." "Though it is quitu common to meet men who profess to bo able to tell accurately the ago of horses up to a lato period of life, nevertheless it is safe lor any person ordinarily not to claim to bo able to read a horse's ago with accuracy after the animal has passed eight years or so." • Such is a portion of the introduc tory of a Fanners' Bulletin No. 87, which has just been issued under the compilation of Mr. S. T. D. Symons, M.It.C. V.S. This booklet, which is profusely il lustrated, is intended to show the con dition and growth of the teeth of a horse from birth to twelve years old. The appearance of the teeth, in rela tion to the ago, is briefly set out, a portion of which is as follows: — "At birth, as a general rule, none of the teeth are through, but in about a week tho four central milk incisors arc cut, and tho first, second and third temporary molars also appear. The upper incisors are generally cut a few hours before tho lower. "At fo...
HIS WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
(By Stephen French Whitman.) He was a shabby little middle-aged man—one of that innumerable host whose dull, irresolute faces ami lax, lethargic bodies pathetically publish them as failures. Ami the unkempfc ness of his rusty grey hair, the diugi ness of his coarse skin, the uueleannuHS of his blunt linger tips, the ^tains on his threadbare coat lapels and tho grimy glaze on his linen all were symp toms expressing poignantly his apathe tic acquaintance in.that destiny. In that struggle for which hate had prepared him lp miud .and spirit so inefficiently he had been,long since well beaten into a pattern for submission antl drudgery. JS'ow, at least, he was irrevocably a poor machine none too accurato even "tor small performances,; doing, whatever task was set for him by those who, because they wore everything that ho was not, controlled his mean and trilling fortunes. AIL day long he worked in a big; room full &lt; of desks and active young, men, where the clerical business o...
CORNSACKS FOR HARVEST. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
CORNSACKS FOR HARVEST. lu reply to a question of Mr. Kcast in the Assembly, the Minister for Agri culture made a statement as to the stock of cornsacks in the State.

DUCKS IN AN ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
DUCKS IN AN ORCHARD. A contributor to the Auckland "Herald" states;—I wish to impress the value of ducks on the orchardist. They are of far greater value to him than hens, as they do not fly. into the trees or scratch. An acre of orchards, with 50 to 100 ducks running therein, should do wonderfully well, and would require little manuring or cultivation. The ducks in tho spring and summer months would get away with a lot of the insect pests. Many a time I have watched the ducks chasing after tho little brown insects just about dusk ;n the spring. I have kept ducks in my orchard for several years, and know what I am talking about. My trees are wonderfully clear of pests and show wonderful crops of fine fruit each sea son. 1 am at the present time shifting to a new orchard gnd poultry farm, and f only wish 1 could show the read era of these lines what f consider the ideal way of keeping ducks penned up and on free range. The position I have chosen lies facing tho north-east, and shelto...
SIX MONTHS' GRACE ALLOWED. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
SIX MONTHS' GRACE ALLOWED.. The commissioner jhas been ad vised that certain canvassers of in surance companies, in their eager ness to promote business, are making incorrect statements in respect of the Workers' Compensa tion Act. Mr Holmes states that it would not be compulsory for employers to effect insurance poli cies until six months after the date of the operation of the act. Some representatives of insurance com panies, in their endeavor to secure business, were deliberately misrep resenting the position by stating that insurance was compulsory from the date when the act became operative.
