The Primary Producer. THE SEASON'S YIELDS. LITCHFIELD AND CARRON. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 29 February 1916

The Primary Producer, j THE SEASON'S YIELDS. LITCHFIELD AND CARRON. Chief interest of all, either direct ly or indirectly, is centred in wheat certificates, which are the outcome (says an ' exchange) of.a most pro lific harvest. It is better to draw a cover over last year's agricultural results (although in a few isolated cases in the Wimmera there were certain fair yields), and review from ; first hand what magnificent yields are now seen in the country outside of Warracknabeal. .■ Iu rather a hurried trip across from the Mildura line one visited a few of the principle holdings in order t'o gain a fair idea of what the actual average might be. At Litchfield siding there is a wonder fully busy scene; waggonS loaded with the golden grain are pouring I iu, quite a procession of them, the main trouble being (not an uncom mon one) that trucks are ' so very much conspicuous by their absence. Wheat at the rate of 4000 bags per day was arriving. ' ' Carroll is a vast expanse of stub ble an...

MILK IN POWDER FORM IIv these hard times every housewife must economise. I find Trufood T'owderodMilk ^blessing • in our house it is a real money silver. Thus wrote a grateful lady, and her experience has been endorsed by householders throughout Australia, who have been using Powderrd Milk for n considerable period. The sys tem by which pure cow's milk is converted into powder form may well be considered one of the marvellous inventions of mod em times. The patent rights wer secured by a Victorian Company, aud the build ings and plant were erected at (.Tlenormis ton (in the centre of the Ear-faned VVestern' District) at a cost of about ^"50,000. livery precaution is tsken to obtain pure fresh milk, aud tho supply is drawn from a radius of about four miles only. The dairymen deliver milk each morning aud evoning, and then within two or three hours tho milk is converted into.powder.

Sale of Wheat Script. A VOLUME OF BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 29 February 1916

Sale of Wheat Script. A VOLUME OF BUSINESS ,-Trading in wheat scrip has devel oped into a business of quite a mo derate volume lately, buyers paying Is 6d as freely as farmers will sell, and 2s in some instances for script on which 2s 6d advauce has been obtained. To appreciate what these rates mean to a grower under pres ent conditions, it is necessary to roughly calculate what the figure is equal to in London. The basis of Is <>d (a less figure, it is stated, will not obtain the sanction of the Wheat Commission) is 4s net at country stations. Adding 3%d for agency and commission, 3^d for rail freight, and for interest and other charges, the parity is found to be 4s 7}4d at Williamstowu. The future of the market is too much involved in the political situation for the best expert to gauge the va' lue^even a mouth hence, and buying and selling of certificates cannot-be otherwise than a bliud gamble. .

The Donald Times With which is incorporated the Donald Express and Lands borough Times. Editor, Harold A. Prider. Friday, March 3, 1916. MEN, NOT RABBITS In one fertile valley iu . . . . where almost anything can be grown aDd reared, there were, 25 years or so ago, at:' least 20 families who all made a "fair living iu a primitive way by running a few 'sheep and cattle on their holdings and growing maize *and potatoes on the fertile creek flats. But they were a thrift less, . old-fashioned lot; and. one by one the old men died, the rabbits invaded the district, the young people, tired of the monotonous life of a locality far from telephones and railways and trams and bustle, drifted away, and now the land is held by a very few people, and they are people who make poor use of it. The few old hands sadly attribute the downfall of the place to rabbits, and infer that the collapse was in evitable. Apparently the fact that energy and enterprise can deal with even Brer Rabbit never dawned ...

WAYSIDE NOTES. THE NORTHERN TERRITORY No. II.— [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 3 March 1916

WAYSIDE NOTES. THE NORTHERN TERRITORY No. II. -By Derby Clouard. For many years the Northern Territory has been a nightmare to Australian statesmen and a geogra phical enigma to the rest of the world. What the future lias in store for the great lone, land, as John Foster Fraser called it, we know not ; but that these lands are capable of mnch that has not yet■' been attempted is certain, as sugar cane, linseed, rice, maize, 'collee, tea, tobacco, india: rubber, cotton, millet, cocoanuts, and various oil plants have been produced 011 a commercial basis. There is certain ly no lack of suushine nor shortage of raiu in the north, but the prob lem appears to be confined to the' fact that the climate is not suitable I for the Australian or European cori |stitution. Japanese, Malays, and Chiuese appear to do well there, aiid, in fact, these aliens form the greater part of the population,; which is, however, not great. The parasites of the community 'are, ac cording to Francis Birtles; the ...
