VICTORIAN HARVEST PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 20 January 1899
VICTORIAN HARVEST PROSPECTS., So far as the producing interests ore concerned, the season hi Victoria (states Tuesday's ' Argus ') is proving to be one of the best experienced for several years. It is .satisfactory; to know rthat in .eonnec ?tion.with the cereal harvest results in al most every instance are exceeding expecta tions, while the 'output -of butter is also heavy, and the export season is likely to be prolonged to a later period than usual. The position is remarkable because the rainfall has not been heavy in any part of the colony except in portions of Gippsland, the precipitation in the metropolitan area being about 9in below the average. Throughout tho whole of the country north of the Di-riding Range the rainfall was nicely distributed, theresultbeing aluxuri ant! growth of vegetation, much of which is now a menace to safety on account of the danger from fire. Fortunately for all concerned, the summer has been a re markably cool one on the whole, but what: might have ...

A NEW BAG RAMMER.. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 20 January 1899
A NEW BAG RAMMEB. -% A new bag-rammer lately patented Tiy Mr J Brown, of Lubcck, is thus described by the 'Bupanyup Spectator' (Vie.)?— 'It is about 3ft long, funnel shaped, the stem being about the sire of on ordinary gas pipe. At the bottom of the pipe are two 'wings,' which close when the rBin mer is forced mto the bag, and open' to allow tho grain to run through as it 'is withdrawn;' Tho mechanism and work ing ore simple The maclune is forced .mto the bag, and the grain poured pto the mouth' or funnel, which, as the it3n mer is withdrawn, fills the space. This process is repeated till the bag is coin pletcly filled. Mr Brown claims that] it will enable half a bushel more to be put into a bag than can be done bj any other method, and that it will consequently -:, effect a great savuig in bags and time. -^ Patent rights haA e been secured for all Uie colonies.' ~ _j
A GOOD BEEF BEAST. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 20 January 1899
A GOOD BEEP BEA.ST. The follomng description of what con stitutes a good beef animal is given by Professor C. P. Curtiss in the 'Annual Report of tho Bureau of Animal InSus- % tn '' — It was not until wthin recent j ears that the heav, , inordinately fat, or rough and patchy bullock, become un popului to such an extent ns practically to dme his class from the market and to banish tho tjpe from the breeding herds. It is well that this was done; for the modern typo makes beef at decidedly more profit and economy to both the producer and tho butcher, and furnishes the con sumer a far superior article. The ports furnishing the high priced cuts must be thickly mid evenly covered with firmj yet mellow, flesh of uniform good quality ,and alike free from hard rolls and blubbcry patches. Coarse, harsh, and gaudy animals will no longer be tolerated, niuch less tho=o that ore bonj and bare of flesh on the bad aud ribs. Tho men who buy our cattle and fix their maikct \alue urc shrewd enough to*...
SHEFFIELD STOCK SALE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 20 January 1899
SHEFFIELD STOCK SALE. Tho usual monthly stock sale, held on Tuesday (writes our Sheffield correspon dent), was not so well attended as usual, no doubt owing to fanners being busy with their harvest. Not many sheep.pigs or cattle were penned, but what there was brought good prices. Working bullocks were in demand, and all forward sold well.

EMU BAY PEODUCE' MARKET-. ,. ! ? ? - ? ? Burnie, Thursday.' .; The export season has now opened in' earnest, and the sighs of activity in ship ping .circles, clearly, indicate ..that in the course of the next week or two export businessjrill be at£ its, height. Arrivals yesterday were large, and by the Te kapo, which left shortly after 1 p.m. to-day, a large shipment will go forward to Sydney. The vessel called at Stanley en route from Launceston, and from that port she took 58 bags potatoes, 21G bags oats, 6 bales wool, and. 12 bags hides. From.

'''.'--Commercial. Tho 'Advocato' Office, Thursday evening. ; Yesterday morning thfr quotation for potatoes opened at .£4/5 to 4J4/7/6, but a rise on these figures took place, and up to JE-i/10 was paid for one or two lots; while this afternoon up to ;S4/12/6 was paid for a small purchase. Deliveries yesterday were- not nearly so heavy as was .anticipated, but as some bought for delivery not later than to-day arrivals were active, and it is estimated that over 8.000 sacks will go forward per steamers Tekapo and Easby to-morrow (Friday) from this port. The ss Penguin, sailing yesterday for Melbourne, took 161 sacks. These'are for transhipuienfr-m Melbourne to an intercolonial port, and it is assumed by some that this shipment caused the rise already stated. .
