It isiquite true that there- are, as the Hon; (John Henry pointed oat the other evening, at the annnal meeting of the Devon Cottage Hospital at Latrobe, two systems by which the State aids the hospitals in different parts of the Colony. Hobart and Launcegton, in the days prior to representative institutions, were each provided with ' a Colonial Hos pital,' maintained at the expense of the Imperial Government. . When the new Constitution came into operation the Colony took over and maintained these institutions, and 'they are now, we be lieve, . quite equal to any that can be found in the mainland capitals. The expenditure has been lavish and the most modern ' appointments have been brought into vogue. These two hospitals cost the taxpayers, of of the Colony £10,960 per annum, and with the excep...

CIRCULAR HEAD PRODUCE MARKET. Stanley, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 February 1899
CIRCULAR HEAD PRODUCE MARKET. Stanley, Monday. The jump in potatoes to £5 and bags had the effect of tempting several farmers from their harvesting, and a large quantity of potatoes, considering it is so early in the season, was shipped during last week. The yields are fairly good, and even £4 to £4/2/6, which is the figure the market is expected to open at this week, will be ac cepted and this week's shipments will likely be quite equal to last week's. Harvest weather continues, and every available team and man is at work. The following were the exports for last week: — Glaucus, for Sydney — Potatoes 444 bags, hides 6601bs ; Tekapo, for Syd ney—potatoes, 684 bags.
For the Farmers. TAMWORTH PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 February 1899
For the Farmers. TAMWOBTH PIGS. 'Brnni' writes in the ' Austndasian ' of Saturday last :— The most interesting experiment in pig-breeding that I have met with in Australia has been carried on at 'Werribee park, and the result has been a decided snecess. Some years ago Mr G. Chirnside imported a number of Tam vrorth pigs, but as the laws of this country ? ' '-''lid not permit him to land them in Vicioria, he was obliged to CBt&blisha small pig farm in West Australia, and uupuri iuu pruuuue oi iqu original bioca to Victoria. The newcomers were not liked by the admirers of the modern Berkshire, and notwithstanding the rusticity of the Tamworths, there was a danger that the breed would be permitted to die out. Gradually, however, the farmers found that the cross of the Tamworth with the Berk shire were so well able to rustle for their living and made such splended bacon pigs that the cross slowly but surely came into favor. The demand for young Tam worth boars increased each suc...

PROSPECTIVE PRICES FOR PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 February 1899
PROSPECTIVE PRICES, FOR ' ? PRODUCE. .,,-??- Prices are likely to open very low for most kinds of farm produce (remarks the Tasmanian ' Agricultural Gazette '). Ab low as 2s 6d per bushel has been offered and taken for new wheat. Other grain, with perhaps the exception of barley, will also be below the average. Hay is also very low ; possibly an improvement may take place later on, as the ruling prices will allow of exportation at a profit. As low as £1 per ton has been taken for hay for early delivery. This is a record price for lowness for past 40 years; also the price for wheat is lower than since the bad times hi the early days. At present there seems a prospect of prices improving in the mother country ; if so, they will move here hi sympathy. We are now, without doubt, producing much more than is re quired for home consumption, and as an exporting country we must take English prices as a base for . our own market values.

THE TASMANIAN SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 February 1899
; THE TASMANIA!* SEASON. Tho month of January-is always one o the most anxious seasons of the year, and this season,' without doubt, has been one of tho most peculiar, so far as weather conditions are concerned, that has been experienced for many years past ; still, on tho' whole, very little -damage has 'been done to the grain and hay crops, while the roots have benefited immensely by the showery wcrither.'' Nearly all 1he'nay is now safely in the stack, and in the early districts most of the wheat is cut. In several districts threshing has com menced, but nearly all farmers are wisely ? giving the grain as much field room as possible. The yield, as far as can be ascertained from the places threshed, will be above tho average. The frosts have in some cases caused a lot of damage, in fact, very few paddocks are entirely free from blighted heads, for which the frost is considered responsible ; still, enough good grain is left to make a very satisfactory yield. Three small places in t...

Mersey Marine Board Matters. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 February 1899
Mersey Marine , Board Matters. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— TheieJ is no need for me to dwell at anyle'rigm upon the coke question; the reason for the necessity of the removal of a large portion of the coke has already been explained, and if the balance left is causing any inconvenience it must be through the want of management or more accommodation.' What appears to me snoiiia De a burning question is Mersey Marine Board matters generally, and it -would be as well for the wardens to note that since farmers from nearly all the districts of the North-West Coast have become contributors of a large portion of the revenue of the Board, then actions wiill, no doubt, be watched more closely than hitherto. From the districts aronnd Deloraino, Sheffield, .Ulverstone, Penguin, and Wynyard, as well as the districts near at hand, produce is forwarded to Devonport for shipment to intercolonial ports. If Devonport wishes to maintain this supremacy of ports on the North-West Coast it would be as well for...
