A 95 % Lambkg Extract from ' Sydney Dmily Guardian*': COROWA. 'A good lambing is reported by Messrs. Clifton Bros,, of Lowesdale, N.S.W. From 1,000 ewes 95 per - cent, of lambs were marked. This is claimed to be a district record.' The above result has often been claimed with small quan tities of sheep such as 100 or 200 crossbreds, and even as high as 100 per cent, has been obtained in some cases, but when it comes to a line of 1,000 ewes, the percentage becomes a totally different matter altogether and it is a truly wonderful result. Messrs. Clifton Bros, used Mooki Springs Salt Licks this j season, and they attributed a lot of their success to the use 'of ' these licks. This is one more of the many fine results that have been credited to this well-known brand of Salt Lick. For the foarth year, Messrs. Wright and Sons, of ' Wallom ombi,' Armidale, have ordered their yearly supply of from 35 to SO tons. There are many other Salt Licks on the market, but you will notice that all of ...

OLD CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

OLD CANBERRA. K Mr. A. H. Wright, Queanbeyan, !: writes : — t r! On reading over the booklet 'Can- ? berra,' recently published and edited ; by W. D. Wright, I was reminded of i an interesting event which some of us now living took part in, and who, lr they happen to see these lines, it will revive old times, pleasant associations and recollections. I am referring to the first Confinnation Service held in that old and historical church at Can berra. In those old days of the 'fifties of last century there were not such con veniences of locomotion. Motor-cars were undreamt of, and even buggies or carriages were yet unknown in those localities. The only wheeled con veyances then wero two-wheeled gigs with one' horse in shaft and one in lead, tandem style, and these would not carry many of a family. The Confirmation Service 1 speak of was the first to be held in the district, audi was talked of as going to be a great affair, and all the young people far and wide decided to get there and...

What Readers Think GOVERNMENT FINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

If -What ,Read»n Think B ? GOVERNMENT FINANCE. 'War' Bond' writes from Queens land: — Quite recently it was stated in ' the-press that the/ Commonwealth Gov ernment waa convening a conference with tho Stato Premiers, with a view to stabilising Government bonds and ctock. irresumaoiy, it was aeciaea to let subscribers to the late conversion- o per cent, loon (and previous sub scribers' loans) down, notwithstanding promises- which, were made by Mr. Bruco to induce investment at the time of issue. The immediate effect of the new Commonwealth 6 per cent, loan is, of course, to depreciate 5 per cent, 'bonds at' least 2J per cent., and that presum ing that the present loan will be as sued at par. The small investor (who by the way gains practically nothing by a remis sion of State income tax) is had, and badly had, by much questionable finance. If, as is claimed by the Gov ernment, there is any sentiment in it, surely it is up to the said Govern ment to stick to thdso investors who came t...

SYDNEY SHOW. 'Memo' writes: — lie the coining R.A.S. if it is Hot too trivial for the consideration of the powers that be, I suggest that a chart or plan of show ground, with buildings and site of exhibits marked thereon, be in cluded in programmes'. To any out sider who only goes there once a year, it is hard to find any special exhibit, even when you know it is there, and there are so many others shown that you would have wished to see. but did not even know were there till you .see them mentioned in the paper after wards. Also, why is everything in the way of food and drink sold there allowed to be so much higher than same sold outside? Last year I was on one of the stands in the day time, and lett it for a while till the night programme began. On going back 1 had to get another ticket, it seemed rather a mean thing to do.

THOSE WERE THE DAYS [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

THOSE WERE THE DAYS In an article on the 'Japanese Cataclysm' the 'Queensland Mining Journal' remarks; 'Every district of any size throughout the world at some period or other been subject to seismic and volcanic disturbances, which have left their record as faults or lava flows or igeneous intrusions.' Tho journal then goes on to point out that : 'In the early Tertiary period, and in fact up to the end of the Mio cene, eastern Australia was subject to volcanic eruptions on a vast scale. Great fire-spurting mountains belched out basalt lava in western Victoria, in eastern New South Wales,, in the New England and Richmond districts, in the Darling Downs and Burnett dis tricts af Queensland, and in fact all along the eastern rim of Australia. 'Tertiary faults are also so plentiful in eastern Australia that we have ample e\ idence that terrible earth quakes shook our continent. In North Queensland, along the valleys of the Herbert and Einasleigh Rivers, and in th© Dividing Range, betwe...

Ratoon Cotton IS IT BANEFUL? If tho . cotton industry becomes pro perly established in this State, under conditions that will onsure a lit tie more than th© bri«f existence predict ed, the question ' ratoon cotton is one that will en.u j ust as fioroo a, controversy in N.b. \V;..;as it has in tho Northern State — especially in Central Queensland. The State Government, acting on tho advice of their cotton experts, have strenuously set their face against per mitting tho cultivation of ratoon cot ton. This attitude now appears to have ?been based on firm grounds — advice has just reached Sydney that at the rocently-lield American Cotton Growers' Association Conference, convened in order to cope with the threatened ex tinction of the cotton crop through boll weevil depredations, ootton ratooning was covered. One of th© many important conclu sions arrived at was that ratoon cot ton cultivation w.as a menace to tho cotton industry, as it provided harbor age for the boll weevil. ' Tlie Con...

WALKING THE SPUDS TO MARKET [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

WALKING THE SPUDS TO MARKET Fully 500,000 sacks' of potatoes were fed to cattle and hogs in the Montrose district of Western Colorado last sea son. This means that approximately 50,000,000 pounds of a product grown for human consumption was turned into beef and pork in one county. Growers who bad some 15,000 acres in spuds and could not market tneir product profitably learned by this ex perience that livestock affords a valu able market. Not only may culls be disposed of in this manner, but also first-class farm products which because of over-production or lack of proper dis tributing methods otherwise would be wasted. One farmer who fed 146 tons of cooked potatoes to cattle, along with alfalfa liny, reported excellent results. Another farmer fed 100 head of hogs for 112 days on cooked potatoes, corn and alfalfa, and reported economical and satisfactory gains. Livestock rais ers paid only 10 to 25 cents a hundred for the potatoes, hut growers who fed their own product secured much g...

Perky Fruit Fly FLIES THE MURRAY. VICTORIANS SPITEFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

Perky Fruit Fly FLIES THE MURRAY. VICTORIANS SPITEFUL. Because the Mediterranean fruit fly lias disregarded tlie existence of the Murray River as a State boundary, and probably fluttered across from the Curl wau irrigation arta to Mildura, the Victorian Government are not only say ing things — they are doing things. This, however, is not the first incur sion .that this universal depredator has made into the southern State, only to discover that climatic conditions were ? not favorable to a lengthy sojourn iu the seclusion of Victorian orchards. In about 1907, and again in 1911 or 1912, this unwelcome visitor was dis covered south of the Murray. On the latter occasion tlie South Australians were up in urms over the concealment tactics adopted by tlie Victorian l'ruit authorities, and promptly stopped the transport of all Victorian fruit into South Australia. Queensland and this State have established a big fruit traffic with the southern Stutes, and for quick 'transit have found it a...
