a cSb NORTHERN PEOPLE, Alderman N. Bromley Creer, Whose resignation from the lioyal 'Coinmission appointed to inquire into the Greater Newcastle proposals was resp onsible for many expressions of regret. Alderman Creer has had many years' experience in municipal work. He was elected for term after term at Waratah, and about two years ago decide! that he would be able to do more good for the community by being a member \ of the Newcastle City Cou.iiil. When lie first offered his services they were rejected, but later lie was elected by a handsome majority.

Of Interest to Women. Home Medicines. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 February 1919

sag- -—— ■ Of Interest to Women. By Mother o' Pearl Home Medicines. The home medicine-chest should have a key, and where there are children it should be kept out of reach; but access ible to all adult members of the house. Large quantities ot' any article should not be stocked, only enough for a day or two's use, because all medical ma terial to be of full value should natu rally be as fresh as possible. Foremost is the hot-water bag, the urst thing needed in the case of chill; in fact, if the patient is quickly put to bed, with a hot bag at the feet, a heavy cold, and even worse, may be warded off. Mustard leaves are another essential; but as they soon lose their strength it is best to have only a few at a time,, and those securely fastened in an air-tight box or jar. Linseed for poultices is invaluable, also a roll of cotton-wool, a small bottle of pure, sweet oil, a bottle of eucalyptus oil, and a pair of good sharp scissors, kept only for medical purposes. That stand-by of all m...

VALUABLE CANE FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 February 1919

VALUABLE CANE FAKM6. Cane farms are advancing in value in the Clarence district. One of 16$ acres, on Serpentine 'Channel, 'Harwood,. was 'recently quitted for a little over £S000. It contained 95 acres of cane land, and had over a mile water front age. Another farm of 80 acres, on War regah Island, fetched £5100; while pro per tv near Maclean realised the record price of £112 per acre. Growing cane at :H)/- per ton would soon recoup pur chasers for the capital invested. ' SOME GIANT PINE TREES. During .the past few weeks several giant pine trees have been felled on Mr. w'arnes' farm, on Eastern Dorrigo, soma measuring up to 16ft. girth at the butt_ and running from 90ft.. to lOCft. to the first limb, these trees containing by measurement from 6000ft. to 9000ft. of timber.

NO WATER HINDERS TIN-MINING INDUSTRY iJack of water is still hindering the operations at the tin mines in the north and north-west, and until a generous downpour comes along there will be practically no forward movements in this industry.

HETTON COAL CO., LTD. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 February 1919

HETTON COAL CO., LTD. Although the Hetton 'Coal Company's Bell bird colliery worked only 104 1-3 days during the past six months, as compared with 12()14 days during the preceding term, increased profit3 (amounting to £15,947) are recorded in the latest report. Ordinary shareholders will again receive a 10 per cent, divi dend—for the fourth consecutive time. This appears to be an excellent invest ment, for although there are practically 110 reserves (except for taxation), the assets have been written down by an other comparatively large sum (£5500). The capital is £185,810, the 21,202 pre ference shares of £1 fully paid carrying a fixed cumulative dividend of 7 per cent. Ordinary shares command 25/(5, and as the directors anticipate a much increased output (with similar increased profits), they seem to be a good pur chase.

FALLOWING IMPERATIVE TO ENSURE GOOD YIELDS. Preparations for Bad Seasons. Farmers Must Work Hard at Beginning of Each Season. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 February 1919

FALLOWING IMPERATIVE TO ENSURE GOOD YIELDS. Preparations for Bad Seasons Farmers Must Work Hard at Beginning of Each Season. Farming on the rig'ht lines will al ways be a profitable work. Tillers of the soil, graziers and others experience good and bad seasons. They are well rewarded for their work in the good seasons, but owing to lack of fore sight they lose much money when the seasons are adverse. A bad season can be made lejs "bail" by making, provision for it at the beginning. Hosts ot' farmers do no thing in this regard. And they suffer for it. All land for cropping should be fal lowed early, and should be given atten tion during the weeks following. Farmers should attend to silage work, when sufficient feed is at hand to put a little away. No fodder should be wasted. No fodder should Le sold un less the owner has an adequate quantity in stock to provide foi times of drought. But fallowing claims first attention. The best crops come from fallowed land, and men would be well ad...

MORE SHALLOW BORING PLANTS FOR COUNTRY. Government's Important Decision. Twenty-One Plants Will be in Operation Shortly to Help Save Stock. The Water Conservation and Irriga tion Commission announces that the Government proposes to still further de velop shallow boring operations through out t'he iState by Government plants. At the present time there are 16 plants in operation and since shallow boring was undertaken by the State 232 bores have been put down. It is now generally admitted, according tj the ■' Daily Telegraph," that the re sults achieved have been of the great est service not only to the individual, but to the State as a whole. On the recommendation of tue Irriga tion Commission the Government has now given approval for the purchase of five additional plants, making a total of 21.

Better Service Forty Years Ago. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 February 1919

Better Service Forty Years Ago. Gunnedah residents complain bitterly of the mail service. One well-known resident stated on Friday last that the people were better off 40 years ago, when Newcastle and Quirindi were their railway termini. Before the war a train leaving Syd ney at 8.30 p.m. carried the mails. The time was subsequently altered to 7.10, and about three months ago to 4.10 p.m. The position, instead of having improved, however, is said to have be come much worse, as to catch this train the mail closes shortly after nooii. The result is that the north-west is handi capped by about 24 hours against the north, south, and west, with the bulk of the commercial mail, stock reports, etc. Gunnedah does not get the bulk of its commercial mail until the third day, j as the mid-day mail is most inconveni ent. It is urged, in consequence, that the original mail service, say, as far as I Narrabri, bo reinstated, per Glen Innes j S.:iO p.m. train from Sydney, with de tachable train at ...

Returned Men Trained to be Good Orchardists. Government Scheme in North. Glen Innes Soldiers' Settlement Nursery One of Best Yet Devised. (By A. G-. Stoneman.) During the 12 months it has been established, the .Soldiers' Settlement Nursery at Glen limes lias rendered valuable assistance to the returned men of the north who wished to learn some thing of successful fruit-growing. The Nursery was originally started by Mr. E. Lauff, who had worked up a large connection with northern residents when he accepted an offer from the Government to soil the area, consisting of about 15 acres, a mile from the town. The authorities soon had it ready for returned soldiers to obtain instruction and experience in fruit and vegetable growing. Mr. J. Plante, who had seen con siderable forestry work in New Zealand and this State, was installed as man ager, and under his guidance the settle ment is proving a regular boon to the boys who have a real desive to learn something of the practical and theo ret...

Tobacco Culture in Tamworth District. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 February 1919

Tobacco Culture in Tamworth District. (From our Tamworth Correspondent.) The tobacco crops in the Tam worth district are looking "remarkably wall. Some of the paddocks are almost ideftl in appearance. For the mojt part the cultivation of the narcotic has been carried out by 'Chinese, but the realisa tion is slowly manifesting itself that it is an industry that could well and profitably be taken up by Europeans. It has been suggested that tobacco growing should commend itself to re turned soldiers. The idea is also held that there is room for cultivation on more modern lines than have been pur sued by the Chinese.

Decentralisation Good. FOR OTHER PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 February 1919

Decentralisation Good. I FOR OTHER PEOPLE. Decentralisation is preached in anil out of season bj' folk who are consistent only in their inconsistency, says the Wingliam "'Chronicle." For instance: The members of the Farmers and Set tlers' Association have preached it for years—.yet their annual conference is religiously centralised in Sydney. The same thing can just as truthfully be said of Shire and Municipal Councils —and last, but not least, the Country Press. Really, the heathen Chinee is not the only chap possessing ways that are pe culiar. We want decentralisation and the opening of Port Stephens^ It is safe to say both will come—but they will I'orae quicker if those who preach coun try interests will preach' less and prac tice more. Newcastle, from a shipping and busi ness standpoint, has not received a f&ir deal in bygone days—the trouble has always been Sydney! Sydney! Sydney! However, Newcastle is going to be the great manufacturing centre of Aus tralia—her prosper...
