TRIAL SHIPMENT OF PEARS. . -Referring to the intimation that the Minister for Agriculture (Mi-. Bour chier) had arranged for Professor Adams and Mr. D. Dowrick to visit Shepparton to confer with fruitgrow ers about making n trial shipment of penrd to England. Mr. A. W. Pntt-W chairman of Directors of the Sheppni' ton ennnevy, announced nt a meeting , of tho Victorian Irrigation Association that tho State Government had decided to send within tho next fortnight a trial shipment of 10,000 half-cases of William pears to London.. He added that tho growers were to provide the fruit, and that the Government would supply the cases and meet the cost of freight and packing] The fruit would be sold at Wembley, and if the ex periment were successful, any profit over and above expenses would go b the suppliers.

AGRICULTURAL. SOIL ANALYSIS AND CROPPING PRACTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 23 January 1925
AGRICULTURAL. SOIL ANALYSIS AND CROPPING PRACTICE. A chemical examination of the soil reveals little evidence as to the proper fertiliser or cropping system to be fol followed to secure maximum produc tion, say the soil specialists at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station at Geneva, according to 'Ber- ter Fruit.'* The soil is so complex chemically, it is pointed out, that a random sample, taken by an inexperi enced person is practically worthless as a basis for predicting what a given soil will or will not do. Chemical analysis also shows only the total amount of planted food present, with out giving an accurate estimate of the amount available to the growing crop. For these reasons and because ex perience and investigation have re vealed that nothing' helpful can come from such analyses, the station soil men decline to analyse samples of -soil sent in by farmers and others who expect _ to use the chemical- tests as a basis for fertiliser or cropping prac tice.

GRIFFITH RAILWAY SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 23 January 1925
GRIFFITH RAILWAY SERVICE. ?The -Railway Commissioners have eided to establish a daily motor train service between Yaiico, Leeton and Uriflith in place 'of the hitherto ex isting tri-weekly service. At lieeton station last month the receipts from pasenger and parcels trailie were in the neighbourhood of £1000. The va rious associations on the irrigation areas are taking steps with the object; * of endeavouring to induce the new Railway Commissioners to reduce fares 50 per cent, and thus bring tlieni t ) the level of Sydney suburban rates. It is pointed out; that the cost of running the motor train, is only one third that of a locomotive train, and it is always full. It is further con tended that the whole of the irrigation area served by the line is closely set tled and that there is one community of interest between all. parts.

j ^ Sinking of Battleships j : LONDON, Wednesday. I In accordance with the Washington Treaty, tho battleship Monarch, was towed out into the Atlantic, and bom barded by the Atlantic Fleet aircraft. ] It is understood that tho Hood and jthc Repulse had a romantic finish. j i ? ?

DAIRYING. NERVOUS TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 23 January 1925
DAIRYING. NERVOUS TREATMENT. The term 'nervous Temperament,'' when applied to the dairy cow, does not mean that she is excitable, or hard to handle. It only means that she has ? u strongly developed nervous system, which enables .lier to. respond to the long-continued,, heavy demands made upon her in the production of both dairy products and her own offspring. It is in contrast with the '?lymphatic ?temperament' so valuable in the beef animal, where a sluggish disposition with an inherent tendency to convert ieeti into uouy lac is oi prime im portance. The steer deposits fat upon his own body because of a lymphatic tempera ment, and the dairy cow deposits her fat in the milk because of a nervous temperament. They may both eat the same feed, but they make different uses of it. This is the most important distinction, because occasionally indi viduals within the dairy breeds have a lympathie temperament, and while they will not lay on llesh as does the beef-bred animal, they are not sa...
LIVE STOCK. NECROTIC ENTERITIS A Serious Infectious Disease of Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 23 January 1925
LIVESTOCK. NECROTIC ENTERITIS A Serious Infectious Diseiise of Pigs. Necrotic enteritis i.s a inline applied to mi infectious' disease which is caus ing yonie considerable loss , in tiie pigs of this State. The disease is one which (HVeets the inner surfaces of tho liowcls and tsometimes the stomach, causing the lining membrane to become congested, thickened, 'and covered with, dirty brown coloured masses of dead, tissue. Sometimes a few of these areas are present, raised up in roughly rounded masses with wcll-defiued mar gins. At other times larger areas are involved by extension of the smaller, lesions until a great part of the bowel .shows the presence of the scab-like masses of dead, tissue. Xoung pigs up to the porker stage .-are more fre quently all'ected than are aged ani mals, but the disease may attack pigs of any age and any class. Jt is usually assumed that 'the dis ease is due to infection with the bacillus of necrosis, but many investi gators now state that this genu, a...
CITY ENTIRELY OF SALT. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 23 January 1925
CITY ENTIRELY OF SALT. I The famous- salt mines of Weiliozka, not far from Cracow, in Galicia, which are among the wonders of the' world, are described in a book ou 'Salt and the Salt Industry,' by M. A. F. Calvert, ' recently issued1 in Lon don. A detailed account of their unpre cedented feature, lie says, would 111 a thick volume, for there are monu ments, churches, Lakes, restaurants, railway stations, and, in fact, a com plete city, 2,000 feet below ? the level ' of the earth. The whole of the sys tem extends over an area of about 12 | miles, and railways run along the j various galleries. Some of the won ders of the subterranean city are de scribed by Mr. Calvert : — 'The Letow 'ball-room, which lies at a depth of 21G feet below the sur face, dates from 1750, and has been the scene of many Royal visits and splendid entertainments. One. end of this spacious chamber is adoivied with a colossal Austrian eagle, and J.i an alcove at the opposite end is a crystal alcove at the opposi...
THE USE OF SUNDAY. FROM A CHRISTIAN STANDPOINT [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 23 January 1925
THE USE OF SUNDAY. ( FROM A CHRISTIAN STANDPOINT I have been asked what should be the attitude of parents, and others in loco parentis, towards young peojile who wish for a larger liberty in mat ters of Sunday amusements than 'their eiders have been accustomed to regard as right (writes Artifex, in '?Manches- ter Weekly Post.') It is quite use less, and worse than useless, to force our own standards on young people ? '.eiely by authority. Such use of authority does more liana than good. 2-l)uiul reasons alone are of any use. v'an we think out any principles that aie likely to be accepted by thought tul and sincere young people? One thing is clear. The matter must be argued from the Christian stand point. And therefore we may at once deal with one argument with w lucli one is often confronted. Our ? Sunday, we are often reminded, is not the Sabbath. Of course it is not. It is something much more. It is the JJies Dominica — the Lord's Day. To suppose that the obligations of Sun day ar...
HYDRO-ELECTRICITY. Jackadgery Scheme Supported. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 23 January 1925
HYDROELECTRICITY Jackadgery Scheme Supported. Great interest is being taken in the' proposed Jackadgery hydro-electric j scheme. Twenty-one councils already have agreed to co-operate, the latest bodies to agree to sign the resolution pledge being the Harwood and the Mclntyre Shire Councils. It is expec ted that the Maclean Council will also agree to support the proposal this week, and the councils of Woodburn, K.vogle and Mullumbimby later in the month. Support is expected from' at least thirty councils in all. ilr. Pollack, a member of the execu tive controlling the agitation in' favor of the great water conservation scheme says that in addition to offering great possibilities, the ..'construction of a large lake will mean protection against the immediate flooding of the Clarence districts during heavy rainfalls. A conference of all local government bodies and the chamber of commerce has been convened at Maclean, when an effort will be made to induce the Government to make, the Cla...
"A DESPERATE EXPEDIENT." THE NEW BUREAU. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 23 January 1925
'A DESPERATE EXPEDIENT.' THE NEW BUREAU. In an interview with Mr. P. Lough lin, M.L. A., concerning -the waterfront trouble, the member made the follow ing statement : — The industrial situation on the wa terfront was unsatisfactory. It was clear that Sir George Fuller didn't want peace, otherwise he would not have established the new bureau after air. Justice Powers had abolished the old one. The Premier's excuse that he wanted to give preference to sol diers would not hold water, as the soldiers would get preference as mem bers of the union. The Premier mere ly wanted to create trouble similar to what had occurred in 1917, so that he could get a good election cry. But tiie men whose wheat and wool were likely to be hung up would see through his ruse. The Governnn-nt was abso lutely bankrupt for something. on which to appeal to the people, hence the Premier's desperate expedient.
