The State and the Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Ultima and Chillingollah Star — 6 February 1914

The State and the Parmer. Most people realise in a general way that to tit least tlucd StAtes, Victoria, New isonth Wales, and South Austialia wheat growing is a Vitally important matter. Comparatively few, however, have gone at all carefully into the figures or know how much • the cost of niavketiug ©fleets, and must effect, the area under cultivation. Aeco ding to the report of the Royal Commission which considered the question,' the price of wheat has duringv.the last ten years varied from J?s J'd to 4s id per bushel; when the latter priec is paid the farmer can afford to pav for hags and out of date methods of handling, but when the lower priea rules the cent of marketing under utterly out of date method* is ruinous. The report of the ltoyal Commission says that the cost of bn^s is from 6d to 7d, thai the co3t of handling them is a big item and that the usual method of weighing them is quite unsatmfnetorv. It adds, wh it all who are interested in the subject know that the provis...

New Use for Tomatoes [Newspaper Article] — Ultima and Chillingollah Star — 6 February 1914

New Use for Tomatoes It is now possible (says < a Naples correspondent) to buy a pound ut to matoes in a paper bag made from to mato skin and cat them by tho light ol: a lamp burning tomato oil. Hitherto there lias been much waste in tho conversion of tomatoes into cat sup, pasto and soup. Tho seeds and bUuuj have boon thrown away, but now, alter much research in iaotories at Naplos and Parma, tho by-products uro almost as valuable as tho fruit it solf. In this new process, tbo residue of seeds and hkins is dried in tho sun. Then tho seeds aru crushed in a Hy draulic press, when they yield a lim pid orango-yallow oil, which, despite .Lj> strong odor of tomatoes, gives an •lorless, bright flame when burned in a lamp. IJy another process, tho skins of to matoes can bo bo treated as to make a urngh quality of wrapping papor.

too Well khownio heed ah "ad." * o This idea that you have lived so lone in town that everybody knows you ana you don't need to advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advertising, indifference to doing business as it is doo* in this day and age, is what lias enabled the catalogue or mail ordex houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store is the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose tiadc to the mail order . house. Of course he cannot afford to I get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible, | but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper, and see that it is change-1. : thus keeping new baigains continual!/ befor the public. .Ie should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at least once a month.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ultima and Chillingollah Star — 6 February 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER . (From oar Spcoial Correspondent.) Discretion is often put into uso to great advantage, and those who are ■called on to uso it require to bo broad minded men of principle. An instance has just, boon brought under notice where it could possibly havo been exer cised by an ofliccr of the Customs De partment, who demanded the .sum of £4,000 from the Victoriau Government aa paymont of duty on a "borrowed drodgo." To tho lay mind the thing is preposterous, and ono is forccd to agreo with Mr.. Joseph Cook (tho Prime Minister) who said:—"It opened my oyes whon X saw it. I understand it is a matter of Customs law, but it seems to mo to be a law which works some what harshly when a Government has to pay £1,000 duty on a dredgo which it is only borrowing. Quite candidly, my inclination will be to see if thcro is any corner in the law which can be discovered to the advantage of tho bor rowing State. if there is not such a corner to be fouud, I suppose Mr. Watt, as a good prote...
