BEYAL. HARVEST RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 23 January 1914

BEYAL. (From our Correspondent.) HARVEST ..RETURNS. The harvesj of 1913-14 is -now a thing of the past. As was predicted in the spring, the average return from the whe.it .fields was a payable one. The variations in the yields wore ab« normal, and can only be accounted for by the irregularity of the foil and distribution of the winter and spring | rains: The yields have varied from 2 { to 8 bags to the acre, the latter being ! harvested from a small area by Mr. ; W. ,r. Duance, of Bangeraug North, j whose average worked out at between | 5 nnd 6 bags. Mr. Ben Wilde also \ harvested up to 7 bags to the acre, 1 and averaged 5 bags. This is tlio | more remarkable, as it was all off un i manured land, Mr. Wilde being a dfs ! believer in the use of artificial fer 1 tilisers. Tt bears out in n very strik ing manner his contention that the thorough tillage of the soil is the more important factor appertaining to the conservation of moisture in the soil, and the production of heavy crops.

NEEDS OF THE COUNTRY. THE PREMIER'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 23 January 1914

j NEEDS OF THE COUNTRY. THE PREMIER'S SPEECH. Several country members^,on Mon day said thai:Mr. Watt's promises, as contained In .his speech at the open-, ing of the Tallangatta railway, would, it carried into effect, be' of lasting Benefit to the State. As to whether ho could pass, legislation in accordance with his address was another matter. Of course the cordial support ol coun try members in the way of decentrali sation measures was assured. Prior to last session, the carrying out of a vigorous decentralisation policy.,liail been foreshadowed, but, unfortunately, the evils of centralisation had been tittle, if any, diminished. It -was i hoped that the forthcoming session would he productive of better work. The I^abor Party would possibly be a stumbling block in the way of . pro gressive legislation tending to the benefit of the country districts, and the late crisis had no doubt an em , bitterlng influence on metropolitan Labor members generally.

VICTORIAN LOAN TRIUMPH MR, WATT PLEASED. LONDON, January 19th. The Victorian 4 per cent, loan of £1,000,000, issued at £97, has beeu a complete success. 3n marked contrast 'to other recent Australian loans, ■which have largely fallen on the un« derwriters, the Victorian loan was subscribed three times over. This is the -first time fornix years that a Co lonial loan has been such a. success. Ninety per cent, of the recent New South Wales 4 per ceut. 3oau of £3,000,000 had to be taken by the un derwriters. The stock markets are very buoyant to-day, especially in respect to gilt edged securities. The immediate \ cause of the improved tone is the cheapness of money. Most- Colonial Government stocks advanced by £1. : Consols closed at £73 15/. The New i South Wales £3,000,000 loan, issued i recently, was quoted at 1 premium, [ and the Victorian loan at ¥> premium. I

CALAQUIL (Prom our Correspondent.) WHEAT SEASON. Harvesting is over, and in the ma jority of cases -wheat carting is a thing'of the past. There have been ! some very good returns, but in many j cases expectations have not. been real- i ised. West of the creek the average j is several bushels above the eastern j side. The reason of this is that tho j rainfall was het*«r during* J"1" and j August. . Rust did a good deal of j liarm, and lessened the yield. During I last week. 23,000 bags were delivered, f Several teams. tried to return home j far quicker than their owners appro- i ved of. Four teams going eastward at one time all got into a good gallop, but were pulled up by their drivers and no harm ' was done. Mr. Crerar's team bolted ■ from out side the station yard -while the driver was absent. All attemepts to stop the horses proved futile. Mr. Lamshed then got his motor car and went in pursuit, and was -fortunate in securing the team without any harm being done to horses or waggo...

Cbc Jkmlb! L • i THR PAPER WITH THE LARGEST CIRCULATION. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS, WITH SUPPLEMENT. TUESDAY, JANUARY 27th, 1914. There is reason for considerable gratification that the season has turn ed out so well for the primary pro ducer. Statistics which have been furnished afford ample evidence that the wheat harvest will give a sub stantial return in the aggregate, des pite the fact that the season was a difficult one and developed along lines which at one time rendered the outlook exceedingly grave. Experience has demonstrated that the interests of producers are intimately bound up in the supply of moisture from the hea ; veus, and when the rainfall in inade quate or withheld at a period when it is' indispensable, the effect is seen in harvest results. This season farmers were handicapped by the occurrence of exceptionally dry conditions, espe cially in the north-west and northern districts, and nothing but the excep tional late rains, combined with up to ...

TRIP TO QUEENSLAND. ! / _ — ) A VISITOR'S IMPRESSIONS. ■Mr. .1. W. Thomas, who recently visited Queensland, writes :—'I was extremely anxious to see a bottle tree, and 1 saw plenty about Roma. These, however, wero small ' ones that had been transplanted to beautify private residences, hut when we got to my brother's place, out in the hush, we saw some giant specimens that were a treat to look tit. One waa about 25 teet in ■circumference in the (thickest part, which is midway be tween the top and bottom of the trunk. The tree, in fact, is a gigantic turnip, and in bad seasons, when feed is scarce, cattle can live on the pulpy substance contained inside the bark. I was told thalt the trees were cut down, ami the top of the trunk open ed out like a trough, and the cattle come themselves and feed until the whole inside of the tree is consumed. I tasted the pulp myself, and came to the conclusion that there ■would ■be no reason for a human being to starve outright, if there .was a bottle...
