APPLE EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 February 1914

APPLE EXPORTS. Fruitgrowers, who export apples to Europe, will be interested in some sta tistic:; compiled by Mr Tlios. Boss Walker, regarding the actual results of shipments made last season from Tas mania, under the private marks oi individual orcliardists. Tlio opera tions of 20 small growers, ranging in quantity from 111 to 8CK3 cases, and aggregating 6400 cases for the season, gave a net return on Hobart wharf oi 6/10 to 9/9 per case. Six'.y seven other growers exported between them 32,16-" and their individual average net re buru for the season on Hobart- wharf ranged from 3/9 to 5/9 per case. I; must bo remembered that Tasmanian apples as a rule do not sell in Europe at such high prices as those from the j main land of Australia. This evidence tends to show that small lines of we!]- .■ selected and carefully-packed apple. realise more money than the same class ( of fruit in large quantities.

TWERE BETTER THUS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 February 1914

'TWERE BETTER THUS. In tho soft firelight ' the boarding house sitting room looked almost cosy and attractive. The warmth and com fort thawed the heart of the oldest lodger. In an expansive moment he turned towards tho landlady, who was his only companion in the room, and clasping her hands fondly, murmured: "Will you be my wife?" The woman did not start nor blush. No maidenly coyness shone from her clear, cold eyes. "No, sir," she replied, with calm deliberation. "I'm sorry, but I can not marry you. You've been here four years, and are much too" good a boarder to be put on the free list." There is also a big future for this country in fruit-growing, bub better shipping facilities must be provided if it is to be exploited to the fullest. This is a matter that merits more at tention than-it receives and organisa tions designed to promote produoing in terests should _ keep it to the fore among the things they are endeavor ing to put on a better footing.

WOOL PROSPECTS. With the general trade of the world active, and every prospect of remain ing so, there should be a strong con sumptive demand foT wool during the coming year. Labor in the Old World is-well employed at better wages the world's wool requirements continue to increase, while there will be a great shortage of wool in manufacturing centres before the end of the present calendar year, and only moderate sup plies for 1914. Wool will be admitted into the United States of America duty free, and it wil not be very long be fore that great wool-using nation will require a great proportion of Austra lia's clip. Owing to great financial stringency in the U.S.A., it is quite possible that they will not take a great amount of wool during the com ing season; but they are so short of stocks that they must purchase some, and later on they will require a large quantity.
