ALL STOCK LIKE SUDAN GRASS. Grown Quickly—None Wasted. Queenslander Praises this Useful Millet, and States that Growing is a Profitable Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
ALL STOCK LIKE SUDAN GRASS. Grown Quickly—None Wasted. Queenslander Praises this Useful ^Millet, and States that Growing is a Profitable Work. . In view of the interest that.is being taken in Sudan grass by Northern farmers, a Queensland grower's experi ence with it should be of interest to them. "X want to say a word or two of Su dan grass, because I know any country man w'lio cultivates a patch will recog nise its value,'' says "Along the Line" in the "North Queensland Register." "It is a millet, possessing all the attri butes for successful growing in our country. I know it both on the coast and the Tableland, and in either locality 1 doubt if any other green crop is so prolific. "Last year some exhibits of it were shown at Charters Towers Horticultural Show. A .month's growth reached a height of fift., this a month from sowing. "•Here, at my home, we have a dozen tussocks, and about' every fourth day 1 cut a handful for the cows and calves, and I've done this for months past. Th...
BRAN SHORTAGE—PROVED SUBSTITUTES. Scalded Weavily Wheat Good. Cheap Food for Stock Suggested by Expert to Tide Over. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
BRAN SHORTAGE—PROVED SUBSTITUTES. Scalded Weavily Wheat Good. Cheap Food for Stock Suggested by . Expert to Tide Over. Dairy farmers arc necessarily drawing 011 bran for feed through the dry or bare pastures, prices are high, and sup plies none too regular. A report has been received from the State Wheat Board, which indicates that everything possible is being done to liberate bran; in fact, a large quantity of flour has been manufactured and not yet sold, and all the mills are working full shifts. It is therefore apparent that the supply of bran cannot be materially increased. The Minister for (Lands had inquiry made as to available substitutes and the 'price of the same. The State. Wheat Board has a considerable quantity of wheat chiefly damaged by weevil that can be bought at 3/- .per bushel. When scalded it will make good feed for the cows. It is the percentage of albumi noids in the food that helps to increase the milk supply, and it is therefore on , this basis that the farmer...

Necessity for Coast Tableland Railway. Inter-Town Jealousy Must Go. Unanimity in Choice of Junction is the Only Chance of Construction. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
Necessity for Coast Tableland Railway. Inter-Town Jealousy Must Go. Unanimity in Choice of Junction is the Only Chance of Construction. In a recent issue of "The Voice of the North" Mr. A. G. Stoneman, of Glen I lines, contributed an in teresting article upon the necessity ot' extending the railway from 311 verell to Glen Innes. He showed how it would help the development 01 that part of the State, and how it could not be regarded as being another probable non-paying line. To-day, Mr. K. A. C. Grant, of Armidaie, sets forth reasons why the line should be extended still further to the coast. He emphasises the fact that unanimity is essential to success in this direction, and he earnestly appeals to the people of the northern towns to sacrifice a little in order that the hopes of this line being built may be real ised. (By R. A. C. Grant.) A railway connecting the Northern Tableland with the coast is an essential. It is a necessity that admits of no con tradiction. There is perfect un...
ARMIDALE WANTS MORE WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 31 January 1919
ARMIDALE WANTS MORE WATER. (From our Armidale Correspondent.) Armidale has completely outgrown the eapaeity of the water supply su-p plied by a storage dam upon Mount Duval, and it is the rule, rather than the exception, lately for the supply to give out in the summer. The council is in difficulties as to howj best the supply can be augmented. It was proposed to erect a second (lainI below the existing one, to impound thei surplus which escapes over the crest of the dam in winter, but an inspection by an expert shows the proposal be yond the range of possibility. At least, it would not be possible to gravitate the water from a "second dam so placed, as the existing wall is at the lowest point from which it would be pos sible to gravitate water to the town. The council will therefore have to con sider this proposition in the light of aj •pumping scheme. At the last meeting of the council thei matter was discussed in all its hear ings, and it was finally resolved to ask the Railway De...
