THE WEEVIL PEST. Is the Wheat Growers' Nightmare. DESCRIPTION OF SPECIES. How Farmers Can Protect their Harvests. (By Raymond Hammill, of Manilla.) The war has brought with it many problems for the man 011 the land. He has enough to contend against at any time without having to face new evils. Perhaps nothing has given him more anxiety during the war than the little pests which infest the immense wheat stacks in different parts of the Com monwealth. Those little insects are no bigger than ordinary black ants. Although Great 'Britain purchased our wheat crop for several seasons, she was unable to transport that wh^at to the other side of the world. The wheat had to be stored in Australia at big receiv ing depots, where any pest would have a splendid chance to cause trouble. Such aai opportunity was readily seized upon by the various insects which infest wheat stacks, notably weevils. Scientists to the Rescue. Before a remedy could.be discovered to cope with the evil much damage had b...

Of Interest to Women. Hints About Children. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 March 1919
By Mother o1 Pearl Hints About Children. The health of a child largely depends upon cleanliness, diet, and sleep. All children, especially young ones, should have a daily bath and clean -clothes— those worn next the skin should be par ticularly fresh and clean—if a child is to be kept in general good health. Many | an illness, often of an epidemic nature, is warded off in this w$y. There is nothing truer than that cleanliness is next to godliness, and I have often no ticed a fretful, unmanageable urchin converted into an angelic, sweet-tem pered cherub by the soothing and clean sing properties of a comforting warm bath and clean clothes. Many mothers fail to realise the little discomforts that irrirate a little child. Continued indif ference of them in time affects the child's health. I know that numbers of children are sent to school v.rith heads that are not clean. This should not be. No child can be truly happy or very healthy who is thus neglected. (Juts, bruises, and wounds sho...

NORTHERN LAND FOR SOLDIERS. Survey Party Working. Yarrowitch and Nowendac Favored for Settlement, but Railway is Needed. (By G-. H. Langhurst) Repatriating the soldiers is a problem that can hardly be said to have been solved. Up to the present little has been done, outside this Stafe, in this regard. The Minister for Lands i.-Mr. As"h ford) has devoted much labor to the work, but much more has to be done. And it must be done quickly. Th& soldiers are coming back in thousands, and unless some big projects are launched, it is feared that the numbers of unemployed will be greatly in creased. A movement, is being made in the north to induce the Minister for Re patriation to take over the (Jrown lands between "Walcha and the Hastings, Maeleay and Manning Rivers. The pro posal is to open up and develop the land by first constructing a railway from the North 'Coast line, -.vhich will pass near Comboyne and Ellenboroaigh on to Yarrowitch or Nowendoc. Tt is believed that this line w...

PRIMARY PRODUCERS' MANY PROBLEMS. Mr. McRae's Appointment. Transport and Marketing Need Attention; Union May Become Political Force. I Mr. C. J. McRae, president of thq Primary Producers' Union, has taken up his permanent residence in Sydney as a paid official to watch the interests of members of the union. He went to "Sydney at the request, of the executive, "primarily to keep in close touch with, the organisation and matters of public import as affecting producing interests. The Sydney office would be the centre through which would -flow all first-hand information, and . encouragement would be given by full recognition of the many disabilities which the settlers had to meet. Mr. McRae considers that transport and marketing are essentially matters requiring most urgent attention, and that in these alone the executive can find a wide field of usefulness. Regarding the policy, he said the union had not definitely dechned a plat form. While they claimed to be a non political organisat...
