COUNCIL MATTERS. To the Kditor Sir,—Can-any of our councillors in form the westenders of (Jodtrey-street when'that end was proclaimed a depot, as no notice of its proclamation has been made public yet. The matter of having debri* dumped in our midst is against the laws of all sanitation. Trust- j inR that some abler pen than mine will take the matter up t'or the health of our town - -Yours, tee,. CITIZEN. S"!, — J have nnticcd in the dail}' papers .suggestions madeinreterence to the coming harvest. Re the taking off of farmers crops. 1 also noticed in the "Argus" a few clays ago that the area of crop under cultivation is considerably in excess of other years. A suggestion which might meet the approval of the Government is if all the employe of the Victorian Railways that could be spared in the country were granted leave of say one month and were transfered into the harvest lield it would relieve the situation considerably and therefore the school boys' services as suggested would no...
THE MAN ON THE LAND. Contending Against Drought Wheat With Little Rain. (Written specially for the "Standard.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915
i THE MAN ON THE LAND. ? By W. J. Wbight, Mysia. Contending Against Drought Wheat With Little Rain. (Written specially for the "Standard.") It is as yet only in the caihei settled .wheat districts of Australia where the principles oi profitable dry-fanning are coming tobcsucccss fullv applied by the rank and file ol the farmers. In the northern pai ts of Victoria and over considerable areas of South Australia the bulk of Agriculturists are undoubtedly sub- , stantially increasing the profits o their industry by the adoption o scientific methods of cultivation and fertilisation ; and, whereas the lattei State was some 15 or 20 years ago only securing returns ot from 4 7 bushels per acre, her mean average yield has since jumped to about n bushels, not in an isolated favorable season, but over an extended period. The improvement has been due to dry farming. , A striking illustration of how fai behind the best available knowledge may be the methods actually used is afforded in the South...
ARE WE ALIVE? To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915
ARE WE ALIVE ? To- the Editor. Sir.—I have been much impressed by some remarks made by a passing visitor to iioort. He considered Boort should be a very good rival to Kerang in point of population and aggressive ness, but it was a long way behind. From what he saw he was inclined to think that'there must be something wrong with the denizens of Boort, as a town ie exactly what the people make it. In looking over many of the buildings, he noticed an air of cheap ness one would hardly expect lo see in such a wealthy district, as though any sort of a building so long as it was rain and wind proof would do. He considered the Mechanics' Institute, and all the churches a disgrace to the townsmen of Boort. No doubt there is a good deal in what our friend has said. We seem to be too content with things as they are ; but a passing visitor can see that we are behind the times in ambition and aggressiveness compared with some places not more than half tlv size of our town. When will our leading...
Horses—Ails and Cures. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915
Horses—Ails and Cures. The various diseases to which the horse is subject, embrace nearly all those afflicting the human family, and including among them, as most common, disease of the skiu and its integrements—those of the muscles, of the ligaments and of the bones—quite rare in the hitman family, a: d to which the horse might be completely exempt, were it not for the ignorance, and in very many cases the brutality of the master in over-driving, over weighting, It aping, beating, neglect in clothing when heated, careless ness in grooming, want c.f proper and sufficient food. Take away the causes of disease and the labors of veterinary surgeons would be light. We should see but little of c .ries of the bones, causing dege neration of the substance; ot spavin, curb, ringbone, splint ; of injuries to the sinews and tendons, causing breakdown ; swellings and other &lt; f the most serious afflictions; poll evil, and .other fistulous di seases attacking the faithful ser vant of ...

SUNDAY READING. German Articles Missing. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915
SUNDAY READING. ? (Conducted by Rov. Eldridgo, Boorfc.) Gorman Articles Missing. The last issue of the " Expositor" is to to hand, and it contains six very able articles. The mo3t noticeable feature in the latest issues is the absence of articles by &lt;>'crman theolo gians and professors. The fact that many professors and teachers ap proved of the methods of Germany and justified the war, is no doubt largely responsible for the elimination of many articles bearing the imprima tur of the Fatherland. That there is a difference of opinion amongst German theological students regarding that nation's attitude both in regard to the present war and all warefare gene rally as being unchristian, and in human, is very evident from reports to hand, from some of her own students serving at the front. One has recently written in the most condemnatory terms of all warfare generally, and of this great war in particular. He says, '• All of us, even thos? who are keenest in battle, desire...
