KITCHENER'S GREAT WORK PEASANTS IN HIS PALACE A striking: picture of the work that Lord Kitchener is doing for Egypt as British Agent-General and of the im pression his picturesque and vigorous personality has produced on the native mind was forthcoming yesterday (says "The" Daily Mail" of November 29) in conversation with G. N. Sarruf Bey, son of the proprietor of the well-known Cairo vernacular newspaper, "Al-Mo kattam, who is now in London on the firm's business. Sarruf Bey said: The popularity enjoyed by Lord Kit chener in Egypt is wider and more comprehensive than that enjoyed by any of his predecessors. I think one may safely say that Lord Kitchener is the most popular figure in Egypt to day. He has made all the Egyptians, from the Khedive down to the hum blest fellah (peasant), realise that he is the friend of the Egyptians and under stands their needs. "EL LORD" AND THE VILLAGERS One has only to go across to the Agency In Cairo any morning to un derstand the hold Lord Kitche...

DIAPUR. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 February 1914

DIAPUR »■ (From our own (Jorrespondent) Wheat is coming in freely to the local yards at the rate of something like 1000 bags daily. At the time of writing, there are about 38,000 bags stacked. Unless the sky proves to be a leaky curtain between this and the 11th., the prospects for "opening day" are anything but rosy. What was once a fine sheet of water, is now a series of reedy mud holes. One " Sport" who reconnoitred the local swamp was queried as to the outlook, on his return to the village. " Swamp,'' he said dismally, " There is not enough water to wet a nobbier of soda. Why,'it ia a mere frontal perspira tion !" A friendly game of cricket was played on Saturday between Kaniva and Diapur, and resulted in a win for the latter. The Kaniva team, how ever, was not a representative one. The scorcs were, Diapur 57 ; Kaniva, 84. Goodwin, for Kaniva, and G-. Farmers, for Diapur, both ran into double figures with the respective scores of 12 and 15.

"I know Clements Tonic is used extensively by the profession, and nurses know its value and are seldom without it. Once a patient got very weak and low spirited, and I gave her Clements Tonic. A few doses made a change for the better, she rapidly be came bright and cheerful, it gave her health and strength and soon put her on her feet again, which made her a firm believer in Clements Tonic.

The wheat was sown under the same conditions as other varieties, at the rate of 75lb per acre. The lClb of Avoca wheat gave a return of 8 bushels -401b. which works out at about 43 1-3 bushels per acre. In a letter to Mr Ebeling, Mr Sutherland states that his other wheat only went a trifle oyer 21 bushels per acre. He refused a high price for his Avoca wheat, which he is keeping for seed, and assures Mr Ebel ing that is fac superior to any other variety he knows of. The sample of Avoca wheat now on view in Avoca is r splendid one, and the residents are naturally pleased at the success of the variety which was hybridised by one of their own townsmen, Thousands of parakeets, known as "green leeks", have made their appear ance with the advent of the autumn and the blossoms on the sugar gums in t...
