PEERYBINGLE PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

I hope I should be the last to dispute expert and scientific opinion, but I must say,, in the most humble manner, that my personal observation does not accord with the opinion which, ac cording: to a cable, message published during the week, was expressed hy a certain medical man at a scientific conference in Canada. This gentleman was discussing- the imperfections of what some people look upon as the sniost deliciously imperfect thing- in the World, to wit, woman. According- to Dr. Richard Smith (yes, the critic was a member of the Well-known Smith family), the present day woman is? a thin-chested and nervous creature. But, is this so? We hear a great deal about "nerves" j feeing- the disease of the age, but there i is a shrewd suspicion in some quarters ; that this statement is based on no more solid foundation than a sheaf of terrifying patent medicine advertise ments. Compare the modern girl with her mid-Victorian sister, who used to swoon with clockwork regularity: with little ...

WHEAT TRUCKS SUDDEN DEMAND [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

WHEAT TRUCKS SUDDEN DEMAND Railway officials have explained that temporary shortages in the sup ply of trucks to certain stations were caused b37 the department not being able to send by one train all the trucks needed, while not sufficient trucks re mained on order to justify the running of a special train. Farmers who did not wish to stack wheat at stations were naturally anxious to have at once all the trucks required, but it was obvious that the supply had to be regulated by condi tions and exigencies of the service. Mr C. Macaw, Superintendent of Transportation, said that there were available on the lines no fewer than 12,679 trucks suitable for carrying wheat. Every station in a wheat area was served as soon as possible, and this season only one or two com plaints had been received. There were no complaints, he said, from shippers or millers, and, generally speaking, the farmers were satisfied, for each man was getting his fair share of the rolling stock. Eighty trucks might b...

Ives, and has been grant— J ed a new trial by the High Court, ap- ' plied to Mr Justice Gordon, in Cham bers, in Sydney, for bail. The applica- j tion was refused. !

General MYSTERIOUS MURDER [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

General MYSTERIOUS MURDER London police are completely battled in their attempts to find the murderer of ^Viliiam Starchfield, six years of age, a soil of John Starchfield, who was concerned in the capture of Stephen Titus, an Armenian, the Tottenham Court road murderer in 1912. The boy mysteriously vanished at midday on January 8, after cal'i.ig at a stationer's two hundred yar i s from his home. Next day the body was found under a seat in a railway car riage at Shoreditch. and it was evident that he had been strangled. Detectives found that Starchfield's father was living apart from his wife in a lodging-house at Covent Garden. Starchfield was taken to the Bow street police station, but he satisfac torily accounted for his movements, and was released, Inspector Gough* saying, "If you can find out anything. 01* elucidate the problem, we will be glad if S'ou will enlighten us." ' The mystery is intensified owing to the fact that the longest run between any stations on the Shoreditch...

Combating Stinkwort [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

Combating Siinkwort In parts of Victoria the repulsive weed stinkwort lias already got a hold and, judging from experiences in South Australia, landholders would "be wise if they waged incessant war; against it. Its chief use is that it has deep rooting habits which help to break up hea^vy soils, hut in addition to its objectionable odor, it has little feeding value, and is liable to take such complete possession of a paddock that all useful vegetation is elbowed out. Professor Perkins, principal of the Rosewortliv Agricultural Col lege in South Australia, contends that he can keep this pest in subjection by grazing the stubbles heavily with sheep as early as possible after the crop has .been stripped. Stinkwort is a sum mer grower, and thrives best in cul tivated land/The sheep must have ac cess to it while the weed is in the early stages of its growth, for then the flocks will eat the young plants out completely. If the stinkwort is allowed to get too large and rank the sheep will...

Notwith standing these disadvantages, and also the t fact that the paddock was very rough w^en. the seed was sown, I do not think one grain of the seed was missed; it is astonishing to me.

Bulk Handling [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

Bulk Handling Bulk handling of the wheat crop is coming perceptibly nearer. In South Australia, at agricultural bureau meetings, farmers are reading carefully thought - out papers, ad vocating the change, and pub lic opinion in its favor is rapidly growing. The political situa tion in Victoria has for the time dis tracted general attention from the subject, but the wheat-growers have had the matter strongly, in inind be cause of the abnormal prices they have this season had to pay for bags. Never before have such abnormal charges been made, and costs per acre of wheat-growing have been in creased. In the Farmers' Letter Box two or three weeks ago there was an earnest appeal for a change, and men who a year ago had no views either way have now been converted. The price of bags is in a measure responsible for this. New South Wales is moving quicker than any of the States. Mr Trefle, the Minister for Agriculture, says the Go vernment will lose no time in bring ing a comprehensive schem...
