FRIESIAN COW EASILY BREAKS WORLD'S RECORD [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 21 March 1919

FR1ESIAN COW EASILY BREAKS WORLD'S RECORD "The Friesian cow, Tilly Alcartha, has just completed her sixth year of official test. The test was started when she was 2 years old, and, in the 6 years • she has produced the wonderful return of 156.3 761b. of milk, and 6140 lb. of butter fat. This record, which is far ami away head of anything obtained, from any otlier breed, is the more won derful as she produced a fine, healthy calf each year/' says the "Holstein Friesian World." " Generally, cows | undergoing a milking test are only brec. every 3 5 or 18 months. Her last yea* under test was the best of the six. Her record for that year was 33,4241b. of milk, and 13231b. of 'butter fat. This means an average of 911b. of milk for every day in the year. This shows that generous feeding and heavy production is not detrimental to the health of a | good cow."

PROGRESS OF WOOLTRADE IN FRANCE. Industry Recovering. Half of Spinning Machines Now Repaired, But Much Wor Still to be Done [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 21 March 1919

PROGRESS OF WOOL TRADE IN FRANCE. Industry Recovering. Half of Spinning Machines Now Repaired, Bui Much Wor Still to be Done Prior to the war the very heart of the. French woo,l trade was in the north. Jt was in aiul around Roubaix-Tourco ing that the great textile industry of France exercised its main activities. 1 This district, when in enemy occupa- i rion, suffered considerable damage, but not of i>r, irremediable character. Some of the damage done has been I made good, for it is reported that 40 per cent., of the spindles (spinning i machinery) are now in working order, J'ohn Bridge and Co., Ltd., report. With the express purpose of helping the French wool trade a special alloca tion of tops (combed wool) was made 'by the Imperial Government, so that active operations could be at once com menced. Xo doubt further progress has been made since the news referred to left the other side of the world; neverthe less, important though it may be, tin repairs made only means a measure...

The Best Season to Sow Lucerne. AT END OF MARCH. How to Study the Soil to Learn the Best Way to Utilise it. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 21 March 1919

AT END OF MARCH. How to Study the Soil to Learn the Best Way to Utilise it. Replying to a question on the subject of lucerne-growing, tlie Chief Inspector said that the time, and method of sow ing must depend very largely on the local conditions. Generally speaking the early autumn, say late in March or early in April, is the best time in this State. Where weed growth is apt to be abundant, that is a factor that must be taken into account in determining the sowing season. In districts where weed, growth is worst in winter, and where the land has not been properly , cleaned,: it is'better to wait till spring, in.order that the lucerne may nave , the whole of the summer in which to become es tablished before it has to. compete with the weeds. On the other hand, where weed growth is worst in summer, fiutumn sowing is preferable, because the lucerne then .has . the winter and . early spring in which, to establish it-, self. This avoidance of weed growth, how ever, must only be regarded ...

KNITTING HINTS. Heelless Socks. Materials required: 4ozs. wool; two (2) No. 5 celluloid knitting needles. As some of our boys have found this style of. sock very comfortaible, and a,s it is very simple to make, these directions may be helpful to some knit ters.' The sock is knitted in one straight piece without shaping, and, by reason, of the elasticity obtained by the use of big , needles, easily takes the shape of the foot when in wear. Cast on 90 stitches. First and second rows.—Knit plain. Third .row.—Purl 30, knit GO. ■ Fourth, row.—Knit plain. Fifth row. —Like, the third row. Sixth and seventh, rows.—Knit plain.

S 1 :=5=®, <Pj Of Interest to Women. yj> m By Mother os Pearl Fashion's Decrees. The arrival of the leading fashion journals from Paris, America, and Eng land, together with a number of im ported models in millinery, furs, capes, suits.and materials, brings the sugges tion .that "Peace on Earth" is herald ed by them, as subdued colors and severities are not abundantly evident, and bright hues and rich materials aro the new order. Lovely brocades, elot"h of silver and gold, iridescent spangles, jetted nets, beaded trimmings, tulle, rich satin, soft taffetas and lovely lace are all featured in the new dancing and evening frocks. A note of gay abandon is suggested in many of these models, the corsage being remarkably diaphanous. An alluring little model in taffeta of changing tints in a charming shade of orchid was made with a long line bodice finished at the Tvaist line with a draped girdle of the silk tied in a loose bow at the side. A spray of roses decorate^ the plain...

CAPTAIN MAITLAND LEVY. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 21 March 1919

&amp;nbsp; CAPTAIN MAITLAND LEVY. Captain. Maitland Levy, the eldest boy and the pride of the Septimus Levy family, was a captain in the Irish Guards, and he won the Military Cross at Passchendaele a year ago. And &amp;nbsp; then he was shot dead. He was an- other exemplar of the fact that Jews are the bravest and best of soldiers when they put their mind to it. The tragedy in his case was that he never need have joined up in the first in stance—he was constitutionally deli- cate, and was turned down by a dozen &amp;nbsp; doctors before he found one sufficiently complaisant to pass him. And, again, he need not have returned to the line after his first spell of fighting, which ended in a dose of trench fever. Douglas, the second boy, enlisted in the A.I.F., and had risen to corporal's rank when his brother died. The C.O. of the regiment then asked the. A.I.F. authorities for him to fill Maitland's place. It was a unique tribute to the dead youngster. —Sydney ''Bulletin."<...
