THE POTATO OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919

THE POTATO OUTLOOK. The outlook for tho-potato season is, from the producers' view point, dis tinctly favorable. It is possible that before many weeks are passed thc .value will see £20 per ton, and tho opinion Ls that "double figures will rule all the season. In regard to the ex portable surplus, the figures for last season are about tho" lowest recorded for very many years, and according to estimates that have been made the drop this season will be most marked. According to one merchant the' export will not reach 250,000 bags. Last year 534,000 bags were "sent-forward to Sydney. Though .thc lessened ex port will affect the quantity of labor required for digging ..and .handling nt tho wharves, it is almost certain that tho agricultural industry will bc bet ter'off, as the aggregate returns will he the highest received for many yearB.

A BABE IN THE MANGER [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919

A BABE IN THE MANGER ! A picturesque and seasonable story hails from Brunswick. At Christmas tide it ¡3 customary in Roman Catholic churches to have a representation of thc Christ child in, the manger at the crib besido the altar of thc church, but the attendants at St. Ambrose's Church, Brunswick, on Thursday last came upon a surprisingly real repre sentation of the story. Between ll a.m. and 12.30 p.m. on that day a "young girl, slightly built and dressed in white, and apparently from 18 to 20 years of ago, was noticed in the church, and subsequently was seen to leave it. Her features were not clearly remembered, but her hair was fair. Soon after, to thc blank astonishment of the small congregation, cries of an infant child wero heard arising from the crib, besido the altar. A gentleman immediately went to the spot, and found lying in the manger a male child, apparently three months" old. The infant's hair was dark, and scars like sunburn marks were ou his face. He was a well-deve...

WHY HIGH PRICES? To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919

WHY HIGH PRICES? To tho Editor. Sir,-My esteemed adversary, "Face I tho Facts," ii trying to ho funny at ' my expense, and in your issue of Sat ' urday again otfends my "suscepiibili ' ties." " He misrepresents me, and my objection to misrepresentation is that il wastes time and your space, is an infliction - on your readers, and invari ably ends in the person indulging in it, "taking to the bush." "The New Economics" (which by tho way is not new at all, but only just discovered by j those "who cannot fool tho people as ' easily now as they could in tho old j days), is a science which is exercising j intellects greater even than that of I "Faco tho Facts,'' and for this reason should bo the subject of serious and impartial consideration. Learned.mon tell us candidly that tho old .order of things cannot last, which means iliat tho bad old system cannot bo bolstered up much longer. Even the political .narties are winning elections'on prom ises of much-needed reform, because they are n...
