Federal Issues. COST OF COMMONWEALTH DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 20 March 1914

Federal Issues. COST OF COMMONWEALTH DEFENCE. "When a "nation takes time by the forelock and begins to gel itself ready for war, the chiefs of the general stnffs in other parts of the world luin that page in their diaries down, and that patticu!ar nation is not troubled much." So said General Ian Hamilton, when addressing the officers of the Victorian Military District atul their guests. No doubt tho General was right; the woli is always more ready to face tho lamb than the lion. More than chat, (he experience of Great Britain in South Africa, and of Russia with its struggle with Japan, have shown what the comparatively few can do in battle when they are soldiers to the backbone. There is, however, another side to the "question,". oi.e which was' stressed by Seuator Millin on Monday and by Mr Cook on Tuesday. Our prepara tion for war may secure for .us the blessings of lasting peace; but the premium the Common wealth is paying for this particular policy is much heavier than was expe...

THE FARM. i AVAILABILITY OF FERTILISERS. Tho value of a fertiliser for crops (foes not depend ou its total per centage of ammonia, phosphate of lime and potash, but upon the por ccntagc of those constituents thut the growing crop can utilise. Thia is the point that a farmer has to look at wlien consider!!^? the oflW cucy of nn artificial mnnuro. Thoro are a good ninny substances that contain a high percentage of ono or tlie other fertilising constituents but the constituents are in such an inert form thut they afford little or no nourishment to tho crop. They "analyse well/-' but are bad fertilisers. A glaring instanco of this class of substnncc (tho "Murk Lane Express" points out) is ground leather.
