Fleecing the Farmer. STATE IMPLEMENTS WORKS THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN ENTERPRISE. A GREAT SUCCESS. PROFITS OF PRIVATE MANUFACTURERS. The starting of the West Aus tralian Labor Government of Stale implements works, which are tun*" ing out- harvesters sold at .£30 and ,£40 below the price charged by private manufacturers, has caused 1 a great stir amongst the Liberals ! who always uphold the right of Private Enterprise to exploit the faimer at will.

' If such there be, go mark him well, For him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. . Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound . Disturb his solitude profound.. Here let him live in calm repose, Unsought by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep, That naughtmay break his dreamless . sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; . And on a stone above, "Here lies A chnmp who wonldn't advertise."
