WIND. STORM AT SlIEPPA.rTON. S-IEPPARTON, Wednesday. The full extent of the damage done by the severe hurricane which swept over Shepparton yesterday was revealed to-day. The brick residence of Mr. J. A. K. Clarke suffered 'severely. Mr. and Mrs. Clarke were seated in the diningroom when the gale blew in a large bay window. Shoi'tly afterwards the chimney crashed through the roof, and only two rooms of the large dwelling, were left intact. The roof was carried away, and the severe.hail and rain completed the devastation, No fewer than three chimneys were blown down. In the ease of Mr..Geo.

GRAIN IN BULK. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
The blunders?of the Tiyrway department year after year ii ":lhandliing the harvest constitute'` one of the reasons? why little. heed could_ be paid to - the depa)tmental oppositionl'to the bulk handling and -ele vator system, recommended by- the Wheat Cornmission. The Chief Commissioner is to report- very shiortly to tlihe State .Ministry on the result of. his observations of the working of the system abroad. It is. pointed out ?by" the members of the commission that there is a widespread impression amongst' producerss ,'hat th'ere are few facilities at British pDrts 'for dischargihg grain in bulk, Such an idea is fallacious. Over 80-per cent. of the British wheat im ports are landed in bulk. At ,most of the ports of entry ithere. is ample. provision. made .to receive -the lodse grain, especially at London- (where 90 per. cent. of the wheat is received in bulk), Leith Bristol, Liver pool, Manchester,' Glasgow Huil, &c., and bulk .hiandling facilities are being provided at mi...
THE RIDDLER. ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS AND PUZZLES PUBLISHED 27th DECEMBER. 5501.—ARITHMETICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
THE RDDLE, ANSWERS TO QUESTIO'NS AND PUZZLES PUBLISHED 27th DECEMBER. 5501.-ARITHMETICAL. 1. The actual interest on his outlay .is 5 5-9th per cent., and the annual interest is 3- per cent. To find the buying price we have therefore 5 5-0th : 3. :: 100 : 63. He- sold them at 68, and so gets £816 for them. This in the 3s per cents at 85 gives an income of £31 1-5th. There fore there is a decrease of £10 4-5ths, or £10 16/, which is the answer. 2. The present value of £567 is £532 5/8 4-7d. To find what £100 would increase to at that rate we have--£532 5/8 4-7th : £567 : : £100 : £105 12-23rd. The interest on £100 therefore for the given time at the given rate is £6 12-23rd. Therefore the time in years = 6 12-23 - 44 - 1 36-69 years=the answer.
WHEAT STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
WHEAT STANDARD. .The .corn trade section of the Adelaide' Ohamber of Commerce. has notified mero chants, millers and secretaries of agricii tural bureisu to forward samples of wheat riot later than 12th -January, 1914, in -order that the committee two days later may fiz the standard for the season. In regard to the above arrangement; a: South Australian farmer writes:-"Why defer the fixing of the 1914 standard .till the 12th of January ?. We have heard much about the. method of fixing the. standard, but what is of importance to us-as farmers just at this juncture is the date of fixing. It is well known -by those who have in-. spected-.the samples tlhat the standard canu - not be higher than 6g}1 lb. o.- .thereabouts, and yet to-day the merchant is demanding :, 62..

W?IRE NETTING IN VICTOHIA, NEARLY £25O0,00 WORTH. The fact that the systemn of distributing wire netting carried out by the State- Min iitry is appreciated. by settlers is shown by .the extent to...which the shpplies 'are availed of.
