N.W. FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 March 1899
N.W. FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. The North Western Farmers' Associa tion, Limited, Dovonport, reports for week ending March 24 as follow : — Potatoes : Deliveries having continued on a moderate scale, values have been fully maintained, and wo see no reason to fear a reaction while all markets are steady. The draw from all quarters continues good, and the quality of those now coming for ward is much better. Of course, a sud den rise in values would be followed by a corresponding rush, glut and inevitable fall ; and we would advise growers to con tinue delivering steadily, and not run away with the idea either that prices are going to double, or that wo have more to spare than the intercolonial markets will absorb during the next six months. Turnips : Deliveries have been heavier, and we fear that values in Sydney will hardly be maintained. The quantity needed weokly is not large, and if over done returns will be small. Chaff: Several cutters aro now at work and arrivals ore equal to quite ...

Marvels ipivjlledjcine. Nowhere (says the London 'Standard') Jhas science achieved so many remarkable jtriuinphs of late as in the realm of medi cine, and some of the surgical feats ac complished during the Jast few years have uucu au remaritaDio mat one mignt well be excused if one regarded them as a string oi medical fairy tales. But dull and un interesting as tho science of medicine mav seem to the lay mind, this brief chapterolF recent medical achievements must convince the reader that even' here there is an elo meh't of romance. Not long ago an opera tion was undertaken in a Dublin hospital for which there was no precedent in the United Kingdom, and it is pleasing to bo able to record that it was entirely success ful. The subject of the' operation was a discharged soldier,' who was suffering from ophthalmia, having lost his eyelids. Three doctors in, the Eye and Ear Hospital, Dublin, were consulted, and agreed to moke a bold experiment. The eyelids of a newly-killed pig were ob...

TO MAKE PIG-KEEPING PAY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 March 1899
TO MAKE PIG-KEEPING PAY. (By ' F.R.' in the ' Farmer and Stockbreeder.') , Amongst the many sources of revenue pf the farm one that ought to hold a more important place than it does at the present time is that of tug-keenine. Whvis this ? lntnoinain l trunK because then- proper management and treatment is not so widely nor so thoroughly understood as it ' should _be. The old notion that pigs, will thrive on any kind of offal, or exist amidst auy kind of filth, has been in a great measure one of the reasons of their failure to return-that profit which under proper conditions of existence they' can. Another of the most popular reasons given is the great liability to disease, particularly swine fever. There is a doubt whether all the outbreaks that are put down as Bwino fever are actually swine fever properly, so called. This doubt is con siderably strengthened when the natural habits of the pigs are brought under con sideration, and placed in comparison with the conditions under which...
For the Farmers. MANURE PRODUCT FROM CYANIDE WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 March 1899
For the ''farmers. MANURE PRODUCT FROM CYAN IDE WORKS. . The attention of the Agricultural De partment (Vic.) was recently directed to the mavmrial value of waste sand from cyanide works, and Mr A. N. Pearson, tne Victorian Government agricultural . chemist, was asked to report upon the matter. He has now replied as follows : — 'The sand after treatment with potas sium cyanide for the extraction of gold contains, besides other less valuable materials, a quantity of potassium cyan- . ide, varying from one part in 10,000 ' downwards. It may also contain about three or four times this amount of caustic potash. Such a material, if added to a soil hi large quantity, as for instance in the proportion of 10, 20, or 30 parts sand to 100 of soil, would tend to improve the soil in at least thrco ways. Krstly, on account of its alkaline nature, it would ' sweeten ' the soil, acting in this respect in the same manner as liming 'does. This would probably be its chief mode of action. Secondly, it...

[Circular.] [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 March 1899
[Circular.] Wheat to London: We have gone fully into the matter and samples of Tasmanian wheat have already been exhibited to London buyers, who have pronounced it to be of excellent duality and likely to command full rates, both in England and on the Continent. Several parcels have already been Bold for ship ment home, and have . passed through two, three, and in some cases four hands (at a profit to all) before being bought by the user; we propose to escape all this, as well as effect a considerable saving in freight, by shipping direct from this port, in AI iron sailing ships, to our London agents, who have a very large experience in the European grain trade and have for years sold many shipments of Australian wheat. -.-??.' We guarantee that all the expenses, from the tune of reaching us until its sale, will not exceed lid per bushel (including cost of insurance), and would point out that at 27/ per quarter of 4801bs the. net return to shippers will be 2/5 J- clear, while every ...
