FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 12 April 1916

IJlue is a favorite- shade, -but thorc 'eurioiis Chinoso reds and yellows, with shot effects or floral sprays which woman hood of all ages .will find becoming. Tho exquisite blues and curious dull pinks will find favor with tho young girls, and the richer shades .of purple, rod, and darker blue will fascinate the matrons, both young and elderly. I think tho manner in which fashion cators for tho middle-aged ami tho olderly now is a great feather in tho dear lady's cap. It is not so very many years ago that it was considered rather frivolous for an old lady to wear any thing but black merino or thick bro cades 011 the hottest days. Tlii! hems are billowing out in loamy, frothy frills again—those pretty frills which make even an indifferent ankle look well, peeping beneath, anil a I lovely one finds its beauty enhanced.

SHEEP IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 12 April 1916

SHEEP IX SOUTH A F1UCA.. According to the recent official ac counts,. sheep-breeding makes some progress in various parts of South Africa. For instance, in tl:e Great Karoo .Region, which consist-. of ex tended undulating plains, sheep do well as a rifle; and t.hes<; plains are dotted over with small bushes—the schaap hoseli plant—although the.y art' gener ally deficient in .shade, grass and per manent water. In seasons of drought, vegetation is parched up by the inlenso heat, but after rain, tlio country be comes good pasture land, carrying large flocks of fheep, together with cattlo and horses. In tlio fine terri tory of Kust Cirujunland, which is nearly all occupied, one of the ' princi pal industries is sheep-fanning, out of which money is made, and land -costv from ,C2 to £3 per acre. Clearing is done by native labor at a trifling cost. In the Iiarberton district, as reported, agriculture is somewhat depressed. The fche'ep-breudcrs are short of capital, whilst the cl...

Look .about, and the farmers will see .every other section organized, and .directly, or indiretly, against them. How much longer will the primary producers of the nation tolerate this .unequal and unfair condition of (things? Not much, because they are ■feeling the pinch of the cost of these operations against them and of their ■own failure to combine. Certain events through the necess ities of war havu inspired socialists, and others who care little or nothing lot the primary producers, with the iope that fixing of the prices of rural products will become the settled policy of thtf country after the war.

Naturally Ministers are inclined to hesitate, to postpone the big undertaking:. . The war costs vast sums, to float loans is difficult, to increase taxiation is to court un popularity. So when the Met calfe report was laid before them Ministers handed it to the Rail way Commissioners with a re quest for a written minute. Of course the Commissioners have their statement ready, the Royal Commission of 1912 reported three years ago, and the Com missioners had worked out the problems involved before that. The Metcalfe report says that the new system meanB a saving of £520,000 to the wheat growers.
