WILL FORD COMPANY COME TO NEWCASTLE ? Very Cheap Cars Probable. Benefits of Local Industry Will Range from Farmer to | Mechanic. Another rumor regarding the Ford Car Company is about. A couple of years ago it was reported that several acres of laud at Waratah had been purchased on behalf of tho Ford Company, and that an enormous factory was to be built in order to put a cheap car on the Australian market. This report was stated ■ to have no foundation in fact. It is now alleged that th(-. L-ompany has bought 20 acres of land, with a water frontage, near. Hexham. The success of. the company in America has been due to the standard isation of all parts of the one ear. Tho parts are so made that they can be ckly assembled.

An essential in this direction is the TIMBER employed and the time allowed for THOROUGHLY SEASONING SAME. The " FALKLAND" differs from all other Refrigerators on the market, in so far that it is the ONLY REFRIGERATOR made of QUEENSLAND MAPLE-the Pride of Australia's Timbers—thereby adding an ornamental piece of furniture to the home.

Newcastle Harbour. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 March 1919
When the Holman administration goes before the electors in the course of the appeal likely to abe made in about a year hence, its members will find much difficulty in justifying many of their acts of commission or 'omission sines they were installed in office fwo years ago. Many cities, towns, and districts jha re been afforded more or less reason to complain of the treatment received from the Premier and his colleagues, but certainly no people of a:iy portion of New South Wales have been given so much genuine and substantial cause for dissatisfaction and deep disappoint ment as those., of the port and district of Newcastle. When a little thought is given to the subject by any impartial student of affairs, he must really feel amazed to find that, whilst the creation of such huge industries in our midst, during the past five years or so, as the Broken Hill Proprietary Co.'s Steel Works and the Walsh Island :Ship Build ing and General Engineering Works, hot to mention several other le...

COMMERCE & BUSINESS THIS WILL INTEREST YOU. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 March 1919
COMMERCE 6 BUSINESS THIS WILL INTEREST YOU. As a rule, the mills of udvertisinj .grind slowly, but they grind. Thoroughly, .and pounds are the grist. Some advertising mediums refuse cer tain kinds of "one insertion" business. "Once and out" is not fair to the newspaper or to advertising as an in stitution. Through advertising the purchaser is brought little by little to the buying point.. One penny invested at compound in terest at the dawn of the Christian era would to-day amount to a sum so vast that to state it would stagger the imagination.' So the effect of judicious advertising ■compounds, accumulates, pyramids—and it does not take nineteen-hundred odd years to make good, either. As' one of America's best known merchants says: The first appearance of an ad may merely cause a ripple. The second trip it is seen. The third time we note the illustra tion. The fourth time we read the catch line. The fifth time the first paragraph is perused. ■ The sixth time we complete the rea 1 i...

OLD MANNING RIVER TEACHER I Many Taree district residents will re member Mr. Eichard 'Churahill, who many years ago was a school teacher there. He and his wife weve married nearly 63 years ago in Sylney, and shortly afterwards went to ihe Mann ing, and were among the district's first settlers. Mrs. 'Churchill cele-brated her 90th Birthday on Saturday at he; home at West Ivogarah. She was born in County Londonderry, Ireland, on March 1, 1S29. iShe still retains a wonderful share of mental and bodily \'igor, and can read without glasses. Since the outbreak of the war she has been a strenuous worker for the soldiers, for whom she has knitted over 200 pairs of socks. Mr. Churchill, who is about the same age as his wife, is somewhat feeble, but still mentally sound. Whilst in the northern district he was counted upon as being a leader of men, and in addition to being a sound teacher, was a forceful speaker and an incjisniv.? writer.

INCREASE LIKELY IN PRICE Scarcity in Sydney. Continental Buyers7 Operations Will Force Pries to a High Level. Many merchants are looking with .•some apprehension to the forward posi tion of tea, reports the "Evening News."

SELECT SEED POTATOES BEFORE CROPPING. Better Results Assured. Provision for Ventilation Should Be Made When Storing Seed in Pits. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 March 1919
SELECT SEED POTATOES BEFORE CROPPING. Better Results Assured. Provision for Ventilation Should Be Made When Storing Seed in Pits. A number of recent enquiries from Nortli 'Coast farmers touch tiie subject of the selection and storage of seed potatoes, and the 'Chief Inspector of Agriculture, in conversation, remarked that selection should be made in the field, either at the time of digging or before. The common practice is to select the seed from the bulk crop after harvesting, but a little consideration will satisfy growers that a large pro portion of the potatoes of the size usually preferred for seed may have come from plants that have "run out.'' It is 311st the class of tubers that comes from "run-outs" that most closely ap proximates the size that is regarded as desirable for seed, so that continual selection of the seed in the barn may result in -continuous selection from non productive plants, with decreasing yields as the inevitable consequence, says the " Agricultural and ...
ABOUT NORTHERN PEOPLE. Mr. David Watkins, M.H.R. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 March 1919
PEOPLE The Member for Newcastle in the House of Representatives, who has just undergone a serious operation in the Wallsend Mining District Hospital. His condition, according to latest reports, has improved slightly. Mr. Watkins has a host of friends, as has been testified by the almost ceaseless inquiries made as to his progress since the operation. He is looked upon as being one of the strongest members of the Australian Labor Party, but he is also regarded as being fair at all times to his political opponents. ITis return to represent Newcastle at the last election was one of the triumphs of the Labor organisation, bat much of that success was due to his own popularity. Pie is admired bv tho.-e who have always opposed hi'? opinions almost as much as by his followers. It is hoped that he will soon recover from his illness.
THOUSANDS OF STARVING SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 March 1919
THOUSANDS OF STARVING SHEEP. -Things arc not quite as bad in the sheep country as they are painted, says the ^Casino "'Courier." This is borne out by the fact that there are now travelling along the North Coast stock routes in search' of feed 12,201) sheep, 111 three flocks. Two lots, one of 2500 and another of 4700, from the Glen Times district, passed through Casino the other day, with a brief interval between them, on their way to Grafton. A third flock of 4000, from the Uralla district, is now apparently following the same route, and with the same purpose, to keep alive on the pickings the stock route offers. It is a strange and unusual sight to see great flocks in country which in normal times does not carry one sheep to hundreds of acres. Unfortunately, the Casino and adjoin ing coastal districts are also in the grip of the drought, though to a much smaller extent than other parts, and con' sequently there is little feed for the travelling flocks, which are, on the whole, repo...
