OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
0? RURAL INTEREST (By "ltusticus.") "This is a groat country, but it is j not used," said an American the other day. He said it with an air of un covering a fact of which Australians aro not aware, and which it would bo well for them "to know and to aot ac cordingly. Thero is no gainsaying tho accuracy of his observation, and it is probable that there are few Australians who think at all, who dt> not ack nowledge its truth. But to aot upon tlio kuowlodgo is altogether a different matter. There is some progress to wards exhibiting moro fully tho im menso resources of tho country, but it is a painfully slow process. For tho most part, wo are not far in advance of the lotos eating natives of the tro pics who are content to tako the | goods tho gods provide in the shape of tho fruit, fiish and flesh. Nature, with prodigal bounty furnishes, and let it go at that. True, we mako some effort, but to a very great ex- ' tent, this country of unbounded pos- I sibility in the way of producti...

MEAT PROBLEM IN ARGENTINA. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
MEAT PROBLEM !N ARGENTINA. Tlio shortsighted policy of indiscrim inate slaughter of likely bulls and cows in Argentina, says a South American authority, lias resulted in a. state) of affairs that will bo nothing short ol' a national disaster unless legislation is brought into force to preserve some remnant of the once extensive herds.

Very recently 20,000 head of cattle were driven on to Argentina soil from Para guay. -The price of meat is steadily rising day by day, and somo of the rural markets of the province of Buenos Ayres are actually displaying horse llesh for sale. Tiie shortage of meat which is being felt in Argentina is sti mulating enterprise in other districts and nations, and soon Argentina may find her unknown competitors her suc cessful rivals.

A gentleman, while enjoying a holi day at Scarborough last summer, and staying at a largo hotel, was aixraseri one inorniii? at breakfast by a foreit-n 6', who excited great curiosity by tl" > way in which he ate his egf^s.

.THE MAN FROM COLORADO. The Driver and the Passenger. As we left Sarnly Gulch for Rising Sun there were six male passengers to go by the coach, and the route was over the mouutains and full of chary ; ces of disaster.

While the pale-faced man was climbing r.p the driver whispered to the rest of us:— "I picked him out in order to scars him to death. You fellows will see a heap of fun before we've gone ten miles!"
