THE CARE OF GRASS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 19 January 1914
THE CARE OF GRASS LAND. in -an article oii-"Botanioal Consid erations on the Care of Graas Land," contributed by Mr R. G. Stapleton, M.A., to the Journal of the British Board of Agriculture, special refer ence was -anade to the importance o0 manuring. It is pointed out that phosphatlo manures have proved to be of most efficient use in regard to per manent improvementis of grass lands. With basio slag, if nitrogenous manure is used ot all, it is found desirable to postpone their application till arter the slag has produced its maximum ef fect on clovers. The success of bas ic slag is dependent on a number cf well reoognised factors, two botanical factors being (1) the original presence of Dutch clover or other responsive plant, and (2) space for the clover or other plants to spread. Excess of agrostis and of misoellaneous herbage is a botanical factor most antagonistic to the adequate spread of the clover. On fields ·where those factors are mar kedly operative it would be interest. i...

BEAUFORT STRIKE. PROSPECT OF SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 19 January 1914
BEAUFORT STRIKE. PROSPECT OF SETTLEMsENT. The settlement of the industrial dispute at Beaufort, it would appear, is now within measurable distance, there being a feeling on both sides on Friday that the strikers would be at work again the coming week. The strike has been in progress for 17 weeks, and during that time several of the mines have been hung up, while others have been kept going short-handed. At the previous conference the representatives of the miners desired that non-unionists should be con centrated in a certain mine, and that the others should be named by unionists. This proposal the mine owners turned down, and the posi tion remained unaltered. Now the position is more hopeful. Friday:s conference found the parties in a more conciliatory mood. The delegates for the miners asked, in effect, that if the men were pre pared to resume work and declare the strike off, would the companies give an undertaking that there would be no victimisation and no embargo of any kind pl...

. CANADA'S DEFENCES. I- LL-EQUIPPED MILITIA. TORONTO, SATuRDYo. Major-General Otter, Inspector. General of the Canadian forces, ad dressed the Canadian Club at Toronto yesterday on:the subject of the Dominidns- land defences. He de scribed the Canadian militia as ill equipped and far too smalL.

Major-General Otter suggested as a remedy for the present unsatis factory conditions, ths institution of compulsory military training in schools and universities.
