OTHER PEOPLE'S VIEWS. The Editor, The Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924
OTHER PEOPLE'S VIEWS. The Editor, The Mail. I Sir, — I shali be grateful if you will publish my viewB upon the cele bration of AnzBC Day. Anzac Day should be kept as a day of mourning, not as a holiday for jollity or drun ken carousing. Many of our Bowral shopkeepers opened for some hours on that day, causing many to criti cise. Had they closed their premises I'm sure they would have gained ra ther than lost, for to right-minded people their action would have ap pealed immensely. Poorer people than they refused to work and so lost' nearly a fourth of their week's earning. And what of the Diggers who boasted that, being Anzac Day, they would work for no man, but who, immediately the memorial ser vice was over, rushed off to a smoke concert held by the league's branch at Moss Vale? I'm sure all will 'agree these Diggers were not very consistent. Out of fairness, I must state that toot all of the Bowral League members journeyed to Moss Vale. — Yours, etc., ONLY ONE OF THE PUBLIC.

CONFERENCE OF FRUIT GROWERS. DUTIES AND DISEASE. The Australian Conference of Fruit The Australian Conference of growers is sitting at Hobart. Speaking at a welcome tendered by the Warden of ifuon Municipal ity and the residents, Mr. N. B. Bar net said he desired / to refute the charge of callousness on the part of the growers. The season was the most adverse ever experienced, and the action of sprays had failed ab solutely. There was no accounting for the peculiarity thBt, of three orchards, side by side, sprayed si multaneously, one was clean, and those on both sides dirty. Hundreds of orchards were bearing only a quar ter to half of their normal crops, and orchardiste were justified in send ing them to market to meet interest charges and cost of production. There was no legislation to prohibit cvunrf nf hitter niKnffppted finnlpR. and black spot was not nearly as bad as bitter -pit. He .suggested that varieties such as Cleopatras and Cox's Orange, which developed the pit in trans...

ECONOMIC FEEDING OF STOCK. THE PRINCIPLES INVOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924
ECONOMIC FEEDING OF STOCK. THE PRINCIPLES INVOLVED. The question of the economic feeding of farm animals depends as much on scientific principles as does the economic feeding of farm crops. Farmers all the world over have come to realise that in order . to ap ply manure without waste, it is ne cessary to apply it with some regard to the nalure of the cron and to the nature of the soil. It is safe to say that when the farmer nowadays ap plies farmyard manure the object of supplying plant-iood is only a se condary consideration. It is added to improve the ijature of the soil, to supply vegetable matter, to loosen the texture, and so forth; but if the farmer wishes to supply plant-food, he docs so with a less bulky and more rapid acting, and consequently more economical fertiliser. The in discriminate use of manures like gu anos and bonedust has given way to a more careful selection of the kinds of fertilisers suitable to the require ' ments of different' crops, and a con 1 sideration ...
DESTRUCTION OF STUMPS WITH ACIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924
DESTRUCTION OF STUMPS WITH ACIDS. ? 1 An impression has persisted among farmers for many years that ' tough stumps can be got rid of, 01- ! at least rotted so that they will burn freely, by treating them with some strong acid such as sulphuric acid ! .... wailiim a fan, ' weeks. In order to test the matter properly, a series of experiments was carried out by the Department of Agriculture some years ago, and deep augur holes were bored in se lected stumps of tough timbers, some green and some dry. Quantities of 1 the chemicals named, separately and | together in varying proportions, were j poured into different stumps. The | results were noted regularly for six , months, at the end of which time an j examination showed that in the case of both green and dry stumps the acid had no appreciable affect. Saltpetre has also been said to be useful in preparing dead timber for burning off, but numerous private ex periments go to disprove the theory. |

An Ancient Relic. Housed in the Pioneers' Club, Sydney, is what is reputed to be the ! oldest plough in Australia.

Although apparently not extra strong, it appears capable of 1 pel-forming effective service in light black alluvial soil. I

A special despatch to the 'London Dailv Telegraph' gives information that the zeal of the Prohibition agents 111 Williamson County, Illinois, manv towns, including Marion and U.S.A., has provoked the citizens of ; Herrin, to arm.

Don't Want Their Money. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924
Don't Want Their Money. As exemplifying the casualuess of Australians in regard lo money mat ters, the Commonwealth Bank autho rities state that they have hundreds of accounts of indifferent individuals who have forgotten that they ever deposited money. Another inslance of this casualuess is provided by returned soldiers. The Federal Treasury has made arrange ments to pay out £9,000,000 to own ers of war gratuity bonds at the end of May. Although this intention has been announced for about three weeks, very few applications have so far been received for the redemption of the bonds. Hokun: Have you ever noticed that a fellow always admires a clever , girl, even if she is plain? j Pollux: Yes, and I have also noticed that the same fellow is likely to ' marry a silly one, if she is pretty. |

TWO QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924
TWO QUESTIONS. Out in Bungledoo two men were waiting for the train, and one said: 'I will ask you a question, and if I cannot answer my own question, 1 will buy the tickets to Sydney. Then you ask a question, and if you cannot answer your own question, you buy the tickets. 'Righto,' said the other. 'Well,' said the first man, '.'you see those rabbit holes? How do the rab bits dig those holes without leaving any dirt around them?' The other confessed: 'I don't know. That's your question, so now answer it yourself.'' The first man winked and replied: 'They begin at the bottom, and dig up.' 'But,' objected the second man, 'how do they get at the bottom to begin?' 'I don't know,' said the first man, 'that's your question. Answer it yourself!' The second man bought the tickets. — The Sun.

A STITCH IN TIME. No kidney ailment is unimportant. Don't overlook the slightest back ache or urinary warning you of ap proaching dropsy, gravel or serious kidney'' disease. Kidney disease is seldom fatal, if treated in time, but neglect may pave the way. Don't neglect a lame or aching back an other day. Don't ignore dizzy spells, irregular or discolored urine, head acnes, weariness or aepression. 11 you feel you need kidney help, begin using Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, the reliable time-tried remedy. For years they have been found effective. Ready this testimony: — Mrs. William Pearce, Gordon Road, Bowral, says: — 'Some time iago my husband got wet through, and he let his clothes dry on him. A cold evi dently settled on his kidneys, for af terwards he suffered terribly with his back. The pain centred right across the loins, and was often so severe that he could scarcely move about, and on one occasion he was laid up for six weeks. I obtained Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, and six ...

'MOST WONDERFUL COUNTRY.' In the 'British Medical Journal' j for February 23 there is a report of an addresB to the council of the Brit ish Medical Association in London, on February 13, by Sir William Mac ewen, in which he gave an account of his visit to Australia.

' 'SWOOSHING THROUGH SPACE.' FIRST AEROPLANE TRIP. This graphic account of a first aeroplane -flight reads more like the real thing than some we have seen.. It is by F.N.R. in the Bathurst Times: 'Sit tight!' cautioned the sky pilot unnecessarily as he climbcd in and prepared to start the machine. 'T am ' I said And T was. My toes were jammed under a bat ten; my hands gripped the deeking on either side, and I was prepared, if necessary to secure my position further by gripping with my teeth the belt which encircled my chest. 'Contact!' yelled the pilot, signi fying, I guessed, that the engine ig nition was switched 011. . 'Contact!' acknowledged the me chanic on the ground ahead of us, and, seizing the great propellor, lie began to twist it round. Being a trained man, lie executed the man oeuvre without thrusliiif: his head between the propeller blades in a manner that might interfere with their movement when the 'contact' got to work. Nothing happened. 'Switch off!' shouted the me ...
DIAMOND LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924
DIAMOND LUCK. | Astonishing stories of newcomers' luck in the diamond diggings are re ported from Stompies, South Africa, where there are more than 10,000 people, including blacks, with hun Hrorta tYinre ntreaminfr in from all sides every week. A Free State farmer landed at Stompies to try his luck, but this only claim he could secure was a bit of waste ground that no one else would have. He set to work, and presently found several diamonds, among them a 34 i carat stone. He sold the lot for £826, and went home. Another man had even better luck, and when he sold the diamonds for more than £900 he became almost hysterical. Enteric is said to be rife, and the living and food conditions, in many instances, deplorable. Whole fami lies are stowed away in miscellane ous vehicles with sacking for roofing. All are living on the bare veldt, with the nearest town 24 miles away. Even drinking water must be bought. These people, moreover, continu ally move about from claim to claim or make new ...
