Future Prospects. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 25 July 1902
Future Prospects. — o— The revenue of New South Wales for the year ended SQth June has far exceeded all tbe estimates. The excess is chiefly due to returns from the Customs, the ' amount of which has surprised everyone, says 'Palmer's Share List.' It is evident that the general prosperity of the State has been much greater than was sunnosed. This prosperity is no doubt parLly factitious, tbe result of tbe large Government expenditure of borrowed mpney. . But there must be other causes which have not yet been clearly and fully presented to the public. Among these should be reckoned in creased production of many com modities, such as coal, wheat, frozen meat, -butter &c., and improved prices for wool and coal.

Agriculturists ip other States under stand the necessity for highly cultivat ing their lands— those of Now South Wales pretend to understand, but they have not yet mastered the A.B.C. One of the all important factors in farming is that of returning to the soil a portion, if not all, of the ele ments of fertility withdrawn by the crop, otherwise the crop must provl to be disappointing. The most approved method for applying these elements of plant foods is by the use of artificial fertilisers, and where, as in New South Wales, fertilisers are sold cheaper than in any other State of Australia or New Zealand it does appear strange that such fertilisers are onl...
