OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 18 September 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST ?By "Rusticus." There has just been issued an infor mative sun.i,. ry of the condition of stocks, crops, pastures, etc., during the month of August, gleaned from the re ports furnished by meteorological ob servers throughout the State of Vic toria. It is as follows: The exceeding scarcity of winter rains in :the Mallee, capped by an al inast abso'utcly dry August, has made the outlook both for crops and gi as .is bad as it well could be. Grass is :now obo only dry but very scarce, and ow:iers of stock are finding it very dillioult to provide feed for them, anu -even where there are good fodder re 'serv.s in- the shape of stacks of hay i.nua straw these are be.ng s~ ireely urawa. upon that in a short time only ia few farms will have any leit. cheep are consequently getting low in con ditibn, and the lambs are not likely to' provide many "treezers" this year. ,vhere sheep are being shorn they are generally very thin and the fletei light. Crops sown fairly early and o...

"PICKWICK" REALISES £495. ORIGINAL ADVERTISEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 18 September 1914

"PICKWICK" REALISES £495. ORIGINAL ADVERTISEMENTS. "Sweet are the uses of advertise ment" received its full tribute at a recent auction, when a complete series of the 20 numbers, beginning March 31, I836, of "The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club," with every wrapper, every advertisement (includ ing the slips), everything, in fact, as issued, a veritable Simon Pure of a set, appeared and fascinated a com pany ready to pass an examination in the "points" of a geinuinely perfect "Pickwick." The 20 numbers easily beat the am ount paid for a similar set unearthed and sold in America for £286, in bringing £495. The set was well known to Dickens' students as that formed by the late Captain R. J. H. Douglas, R.lN., a most diligent ad mirer. It, is useless to decry the price or the re:ason. 'lere are the 20 num bers in their earliest issue. With them are the back and front wrappers of advertisements, the extra leaf adver tisements of "Heneky's Brandy" and "Mchi's Catalogue," a folded a...
