THE SEA TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 2 April 1915

THE SEA TBADE. How far it is possible for Germany . to affect our oversea trade is to many a debatable point. There is, however, littlo cause to fear that any serious damage will bo done. It is very notice able that where a ship happens to be protected or armed . with a few guns it is generally left severely alono by the enemy's submarines. The East Coast of England is peculiarly liable to attack by reason of its open shores, and here, for the most part, the rtamago is being done. It is only necessary for the British Fleet to blockade the Straits of Dover, and screen the North of Scotland, and there would bo no chance; but an occasional one for any enemy craft to get out. Up to this, this has not been done, and the open route is being utilised by the German boats of destruction. The pinch of hungor is being severely felt in Germany, and there will be more hunger Trithin the I next few months. The desperato at tempts being made to deprive England of the advantage of oversea trade arc...

Australian Athlete Enlists. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 2 April 1915

Australian Athlete Enlists. Charles Bergmeier, the well-known Australian athlete, has had a truly remarkable experience in England, and has shown himself to be a true sports man. He has been in England for some little time (says the "S.A'. Advertiser"), but soon after the war started made a dash to return home. He went to Liverpool to book his passage, bqt his' na^io aroused suspicion jn the minds of the authori ties there as to his nationality. The result was that whilst enquiries were being made he missed his boat. The next vessel of the line by which he intended to travel did not sail until February, and Bsrgmeier was faced with prospect of spending many idle weeks. This was intolerable to him, and he promptly joined Kitchener's army, being attached to the 22nd Battalion of the famous Manchester Regiment, now. stationed at More cambe He haa completed the chief part of his training, but it is not exppcted that his battalion will get orders for the front for some time. Before he en...

His driving and cutting being a treat to ' watch, and therefore South Dudloy are fortunate in having his service Downes 42 against St. Josephs and 27 against Ramblers again showed what £ characteristic batsman'he is and must be commended for the fine performances he has put up during this season.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 2 April 1915

I (By "Kustieus.") I It is impossible to take too grave a view of the parlous condition to which the country has been reduced by the depletion oi' the supplies of fodder. The threatened action of the New South "Wales Government to forbid the export of fodder over the border of that State lias filled the stoekowner with apprehension, for there is quite insufficient A ictorian chaff or lucerne left to carry on the whole of the de wand. The position of fodder supplies is a very serious one, and without hop ing to inflate the prices already fabu lous it should be faced squarely. In the first place the supply of Victorian oats is as nearly exhausted as it has been for many years past, and Tas mania has sold the most of its crop to Victoria, New South Wales, and South Australia, having little surplus left for sale.1 The next source of supply is 2s ew Zealand, which, with a crop estimated at 10 million bushels as compared with the l'l millions of last season, has sold a fairly large quanti...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 2 April 1915

MELBOURNE LETTER From our Spccial Correspondent.) Somo suburban branches of the Aus tralian "Women's National Leaguo are arranging public meetings to stimulate recruiting, but it would seem to be wasted effort. They are very much in earnest about it, They get good speakers to deliver rousing addresses; they arrange nice programmes of patriotic music, and they get together attendances that fill the halls. But the people who compose these attendances are not the right sort. They are emin ently respectable ladies and gentlemen, but in the first place they do not need impassioned eloquenco to convince them of the need for more men for the front, and in the second they are abso lutely ineligible for . active service. Some of the ladies bring their knitting and are stirred to dropping a few stitches, perhaps, by the thrilling ap peals to patriotism. Everybody waxes enthusiastic, applauds to the echo and sings the National Anthem with fer vor. But at the end of it all, to use a homely simi...

The roar of thousands oi voices car ried the name, of the winner far over Goodwood Heath, and the Marquis oi Belgrave knew that he was ruined.

A CURIOUS ERROR. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 2 April 1915

A CURIOUS ERROR. A curious error wis recently made by the London "Evening News." "'Eye Witness" had a -two column article giving details of. the fighting in Bel gium 'and France. Included in the letter was a narrative found upon a. German' prisoner. This was indented an em or so more than the narrative. But unfortunately tho indentation was continued longer tliau was necessary, and a large part of the narrative con cerning the Allied troops was tuade to appear as extracted from tho German .ietter. Bo tliut ."Evening News" rea ders must have been puzzled on reading such news as this; "The feeling oi our cyclists may be imagined when, on cau tiously approaching a town, suspecting an ambush at every turn, they are met by a. throng of citizens of both sexes who kiss them effusively." Imag:ue the Belgian villagers welcoming ,.:.id kissing tile German cyclists! The er ror was discovered, and corrected in later, editions." Mother: ''So you enjoyed your walk, Kate.

SUNSHINE—OPTIMISM. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 2 April 1915

SUNSHINE-OPTIMISM. Sunshine is the greatest disinfectant ' that the world knows. It is said that the germs of practically every known ; disease are quickly conquered by the j bright . sunlight. Tubercolosis, abor tion, foot and mouth disease, all of I these can be cured if the germs may J simply be caught and led out into the j sunshine and held there until the sun j has had aa opportunity to fvork its in-j lluence upon them. This is perhaps a strong statement, but the truth remains unchanged that the barn, where sun shine pervades every corner, where ; there are no cracks and crevices that reek with dampness, dust, and dirt, is usually free from infectious diseases. Sunshine in the human being is the common term for optimism. Sunshine is what the world needs in everyday life, in business, in iinancial matters, in the general outlook upon alfairs. if we could lead some of the pessimists out into the sunshine, the germs of narrow-mindedness and pessimism would fade away and they woul...

GREEN MANURING. WHAT EXPERIENCE TEACHES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 2 April 1915

GREEN MANURING. WHAT EXPERIENCE TEACHES. Green manuring, that is, sowing and raising a crop and ploughing it in green, after it has reached a consider able height-is performed with the ob ject of enriching the soil, and improv ing its mechanical conditions. It has long been noticod that the fertility of the land increases much more by the process of green manuring than is the ease if it is simply allowed to lie fal- j low for a season or two. In green manuring there is, in all cases, a considerable gain in organic matter, which the plant has obtained from the air and the mineral plant food, which the crop has obtained from the soil, is returned to the land in a more available from. In the majority of crops this is the only action, but leguminous plants possess an additional advantage, in that they collect nitro gon from the air through the medium of nodules or tubercles on their roots. These nodules contain micro-organisms which are concerned in the assimila tion of free nitrogen, a...

KANGAROO BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 2 April 1915

KANGAROO BUTTER. The Pacific rural press says:-Kan garoo butter, as the Australian and New Zealand product has coiiie to be known to the G'alifornian trade, has played havoc with butter prices hero during tho past year. Two years ago we talked of this new factor, with some alarm it is true, but mostly it was viewed as a new condi tion which our American aggression would overcome in a satisfactory man ner. Now, however, we realise that the entering of this competition is gradually- undermining the foundation of our entire dairy structure by lower ing the price of our butter markets to a level with countries enjoying cheaper land, interest rates, labor, CMVS, and lastly, more thorough organisation of the dairy interests. Those who are perfectly frank in tho matter admit that the only weapon which we can hope to successfully uso in combating this issue is quality, which in its last analysis means better methods in handling both by the pro ducer and manufacturer. To establish this claim...
