T.'• ? prospects of the tobacco in ch: 'try jn this State is ste.adily im proving. A few days ago three samples of high-quality tobacco were brought under the notice of manufacturers by the Agricultural department. As a result, a definite offer has been made by a Melbourne firm to one grower'of 1/9 per pound for any quantity of the leaf up to 25 tons equal in quality to the first sample supplied. This particular [ tobacco is described by the manu facturers' as "a very bright leaf, j suitable for cigarettes, flavor very I fair, and burns with a white ash." For 7 cwt of leaf equal to a second sample submitted the same firm has offered 1/3 per pound. "Victorian tobacco-growers," said Dr Cameron (the' director Of iVgriculture) on Wednesday, "need not have the slightest fear of the stippl}' exceed ing the demand, as long as they confine their efforts to the produc tion of tobacco leaf of high quality.

Our Vacant Spaces. CLOSER SETTLEMENT BLUNDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 26 February 1914

Our Vacant Spaces. Closer Settlement Blunder^. To Victoria the matter of closer settlement is of such supreme im portance that any members of the House of Assembly who may have become unusually excited .in dis cussing it must be pardoned. The State is spending millions of money in buying big estates to be cut into allotments suitable for the small holder ; it is advancing - other mil lions to those small holders to put them on their feet. This policy, if successfully carried out, means the' peorjing of our vacant spaces, and the lasting prosperity of our rather overgrown cities. However, the Committee appoin ted to inquire into the matter issued a report which has filled many mem bers of Parliament and many of the public with dismay. We are told that good land has been bought at too high a price, that so much, poor has been purchased that the. would be settler has left thousands of acres of it on the broad backs of the tax payers, that many of the settlers themselves are'hopelessly ...

Custody of Children, Mother's Application Refused. An application was made to the Chief Justice in the Practice Court, Melh.. by a mother who desired to regain the custody of two children aged respectively seven years and fourteen months, who had been taken away by their'.father. After hearing evidence, His Honor said that prima facie the mother was entitled to the care of children . during the age of nurture, but if it were she wn to be in the in terests of the children they could be given to other custody.

He had found it to be im possible to live with his wife owing to her manner being peculiar. He complained that she suspected him wrongfullj' of immorality, and on what appeared to be merely hearsay evidence. When he returned from Tasmania to Melbourne he found that the children were unattended, and he took them away and pla...

The Boy Hero. I The proposal to raise a fund for the little boy, William Henry Bacon, who behaved so nobly in. connec tion with the death of his mother in the Coonamble district, N.S.W., is being heartily taken up in several parts of the States. The Chief Jus: tice, Sir John Madden, in forwarding ^'5 to the " Argus" fund, writes " No art could have produced so complete and so pathetic a story as this dear little fellow has enacted, who, with simple love and courage and unfailing dutifulness, did all that his childish power could do for his poor dead mother ; then trudged wearily for many miles through *;he loneliness of a wilderness, dragging his infant brothers in his poor little box-cart, to where help might be, thoughtful of everything except himself, in utter adversity. To all of us, old and young, it is a pitiful and noble lesson." Further particulars show that the husband was 130 miles away in specting some cattle he had recently bought.
