The Dairying Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915

The Dairying Industry. As was foreshadowed in a pre vious article dealing with this in dustry, the Jos.s of dairy cattle throughout the state has been severe in consequencc of tlt^ -prolonged drought, and scarcity and high price of fodder. As a result the Govern ment has been approached with the request that assistance might he given to replenish dairy herds. As a preliminary step' in this direction the Government lias asked ths pro prietors of butter factories to ob- I tain from their customers informa tion relative to the number of cows lost during the drought, the number milking, the number they wish to purchase, the area of land available for dairying purposes, and the number of cows (if any) for sale. In a circular letter to suppliers one management states that the object is to ascertain the position, with a view of importing dairy cows from outside States or countries to enable dairymen to replenish their devas tated herds, and obtain the full benefits of a good season -pros p...

Plants for Dry Districts. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915

Plants for Dry Districts. Mr B. Harrison, K.R.H.S., of Bnrringhar, New " outh \V nle.«, writes:—Sweet, clover (Me ilotus Alba) is one of the very best fo.lder plants with which I have experi mented for many years past. It is a biennial plant crowing t*> the height of 5ft to 7ft with l.irse, Ion?, fleshy roots that penetrate the soil to a prreat depth. an'! it is sai-i Withstand hpar; cold brought better than any other fodder plants. In appearance it resembles lucerne, but if allowed to get t0° °'c' l'lc' stems become hard and woody. It can lie cut twice during the first season and three or four the second. It does not produce seed until the second year, anil the flowers are small, white, and extremely frag rant and are much frequented by bees, and it is also a great soil fer tiliser. Sweet clover has several points in its favour when compared with lucerne, namely, it'will grow well in almost any class of soil, will | not bloat stock in any stage of its growth, and requires less m...

Ladies' Column. A Forecast for Spring. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915

Ladies' Column. A Forecast for Spring. (By Rosaland). It has been my privilege during the last few days to be admitted to the private-displays of some of o1 r leading gown and costume maker-*. In spite of the numerous difficult^ i which face the manufacturer (if apparel at the ^present time the showings are, apparently, as excel lent as in normal times. In all the more important houses the ranges in styles are just as large and just as varied as ever. But when one comes to exame the displays closely and calmly, after one's first enthu siasm has subsided, one finds out thfUt, as far as materials are con cerned, novelties are practically non-existent. We see the same fabrics as were ,used during last summer season, but it speaks well for our costumieres that under such circumstances they are able to turn out such a bewildering assortment of charming gown and costumes as is now available. If the materials are familiar the styles are certainly both novel and charming. One sees the famil...

LADIES' LETTER. A lady, writing from England, says the reason that the German aircraft havo made so many attacks Is that the man in charge of the East Coast aerodrome was a German.

THE MAN ON THE LAND. Agricultural Outlook. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915

{ THE MAN ON THE LAND. I By \V. J. Wiiif.MT, Mvsia. Agricultural Outlook. The line rains and exrepti<inally mild weather experienced tliifint; I be present season lias been conducive to a vorv vigorous growth of the crops, which are beginning lo de velop good strong plants. In most cases the very early sown crops arc somewhat thin,-as a result of a con siderable spell of dry weather imme diately after the lirst rain in April. Those sown prior to and after the May rain present a much better ap pearance as regards thickness. On the whole the prospects of tlie forth coming harvest are better than has been the case for some time past. With ,the increased area under cul tivation, and prospective good average yields, the question of priccs, labor and bags is causing considerable discussion. With re gard to prices there is a growing feeling that the prices may not be as good as was previously antici pated, as it is thought in some places that if the present European war continue...

AFTER THE WAR. WOMAN'S POSITION. EARLIER MARRIAGE AND MOTHERHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915

AFTER THE WAR. WOMAN'S POSITION. EARLIER MARRIAGE AND MOTHERHOOD. The position or woman after the war lias formed a fruitful topic of discus sion (writes Margaret Hamilton in "Everyman"). We have been invited by alarmists to regard the possibility of polygamy as a national institution; other writers, less pessimistic but as extreme, have insisted that the short age of men during and after the cam paign must result in a modification of the marriage laws which would admit the legality of bigamy; and that, fail ing tlio.se drastic remedies, a fatal de crease in the birth-rate must ensue. A cursory examination of the facts, how ever, will prove the fallacy of the sug gestion. Supposing that the number of the men killed in the course of tiio war should reach a million—an almost impossible figure—the difference in the number of marriageable men would hardly be perceptible, and would fig ure out at little more than the absence of one man in an assembly of, say, a hundred. This being so, th...

IDLE GERMAN NAVY. HAS IT ANY PLAN? BARREN DASHES EAST AND WEST. THE "TRUMP CARD." [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915

IDLE GERMAN NAVY. HAS IT ANY PLAN? BARREN DASHES EAST AND WEST. THE "TRUMP CARD." By H. C. l'errnby. As the weeks pass and the British I Fleet's command of the seas remains j unchallenged by the world's numeric ally second naval I'ower, one is driven : more and more to question whether j the Teutonic Oenoral Staffs have any strategic plan of campaign at sea at all. The recent abortive raid by German warships towards the Russian coast in the Baltic, and their hasty retreat when challenged by a small Russian flotilla: the failure of the Austrians to use their naval resources in defence of tlieir dockya'rds at Monfalcone; the failure of the Germans to offer any support by sea to their much-harassed army on the Belgian coast last No vember, and the utterly purposeless destruction of trawlers and small trad ing vessels by submarines, arc all symptoms of a paucity of idea that it is not perhaps too optimistic to con sider as foreshadowing complete stra tegic bankruptcy. It has been argued...

OUR WOUNDED IN ENGLAND EXCELLENT FEDERAL SYSTEM. London. June 4. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915

OUR WOUNDED IN ENGLAND EXCELLENT FEDERAL SYSTEM. London. June •!. Over 400 Australian wounded are in English hospitals. Many more are coming, and their care and comfort have been regarded as a tender duty by the Australian colony in London and scattered throughout the British isles. The Australian War Contingent Association is now organising itself on a new footing, and is becoming a live body, with greater activities than over before in its short career. See ing that military necessity is bringing so many Australian lighters, incapaci tated, to England, to recover from the shock and damage of battle, it be comes necessary for Australians to look after their own. It is a briefer journey, this voyage by short stages to Alexandria, to .Malta, to Gibraltar, and then on to England, and it fs un likely that any wounded will go direct to Australia, except perhaps a few who may be regarded as unfit for fur ther service. A number of those have already como to England, and they will shortly ...

RHYMING SLANG. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915

RHYMING SLANG. Tlie ingenious makers 01 language— who dwell oftener iu Collingwood than in the University, and always have dwelt there—might invent some good examples of rhyming slang out of the present war. Most people know what it Is. A lad at Victoria Barracks yes terday said that he had "the old pot" with lilm. The old pot is the old pot and pan—the old man—I.e., the fath er. This slang is built by finding a double locution rhyming with the ori ginal word, and then dropping tho second half. A cal) is a flounder and dab; abbreviated, a flounder. A girl is a twist and twirl; abbreviated, a twist. The abbreviated forms are only occasionally used. Sometimes a aiii glo but compound phrase is used to supply the rhyme; thus, a corner is a Jack Horner; a bed is a rosy-red. With that preliminary lesson it ought to be easy to translate the fol lowing message from (ialllpoli: - "We was In a pretty tight Johnny Horner. The Won't-works was cumin' at us good an' strong, and the big cut-an'-ru...

THE HANDLING OF WHEAT. A Remedy Suggested. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

THE HANDLING OF WHEAT. A Remedy Suggested. The following proposal was laid before the Premier (.Sir Alex. Peacock), by the Hon. H. Bloom field Rees:— '• I desire to bring under your notice a proposal I made to the Royal Commission on the handling of wheat in 1912, and which would be of the greatest advantage to the wheat producers if brought into operation at the coming harvest. "There is no doubt in my mind that great congestion a-ul conse quent loss to the farmers will result from the present unsatisfactory state of the wheat market. Wheat merchants and operators will not be represented by agents at the country stations to the same ex tent as toruierly, and many loads of wheat will be returned to the farms or dumped at the stations to be at the mercy of speculators 01 exposed to any depredators that may be about. "Every year in the latter part of December, in January and Feb ruary, the bulk of our harvest is carted into the stations and mostly sold to the wheat merchants and mille...

Novel Patriotic Gifts. A novel and exce.lent method of contributing to tin.* Patriotic funds has been introduced in the Bridge water district when, in connection with the Fancy Dress Football Carnival held there last week a number of farmers donated an acre of the incoming wheat yield, while others signified their ^intention of giving so many bags. The merit of this system of contributions lies in the fact that many who would like to give handsomely are not in a position to do so, but with the advent of the harvest, which pro mises well, this circumstance wctld be removed, ami in the meantime thev establish those bonifules as loyal and dutiful citzens in the practical sense. Will somebody volunteer a donation of the kind in this district ? Will somebody give a lead ?
