Garden and Field Calendar for March. (B A. Lansdowne, Goulburn). [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 March 1915
Garden and Field Calendar for March. (B A. Lansdowne, Goulburn). The February weather was as we expected. Some flood falls did harm in places, but where our advice re waterways, - etc,, was followed not much damage resulted. The short age of water supply, so often felt, could largely be avoided if the time and labour expended in carting water were devoted to making dams and digging waterholes. All land possible should be. well and deep ly worked, well manured, and crop ped with some useful variety of fod der. All food supplses will be scarce and dear, and it will be impossible to have too great a supply. Never burn stubble or any litter that caiii be ploughed in. Our soils much need humus. Never let weeds go to seed. Indications are for further' monsoonal rains and'thunder weath er; more flood falls likely; much sea breeze; and some storms and squalls; hot at times, 1 any frosts may occur. KITCHEN 'QA EN.

THE DESTROYING FISHERMAN [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
THE DESTROYING FISHERMAN Queanbeyan bhas evolved some thing. altogether new'.in local.:go vernment problems; a trifling matter, but one which is perhaps without par. allel. - It appears that the local fisher men are keen, but bait is scarce.' It bas been discovered that the soil of the town gutters provides excellent worms.. The reenult is that the drainage of the town has been interfered with by bait diggers. The matter was discussed at length at a recent meeting. There are, of course many laws to protect roads, footpaths or gutters being interfered with, and no doubt the local council will be able to protect its drainage from such attacks. Nothing should be allowed which tends to block the gut. ters and form pools of stagnant slush. At allevents, Queanbeyan council has decided to prosecute future worm hun ters, so that this very novel danger to gutters of country towns is nipped in .the.bud.-S.M. Herald.
BUNGENDORE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
BUNGENDORE.. The Railway Commissioners passed through on their annual inspection on Friday last. Up to the present no other bank has given information of starting business here when the N.S.W." branch closes on 31st instant. Much inconvenience will be felt by the business people if we are deprived of a local bank. Both the City and the Commercial Banks were approached, but deolined to accede to the request till the war terminates. Dr. Fonlde, on behalf of the Rail way Commissioner a arrived here by special oar on 'Ihursday morning, and was engaged throughout the day .in testing the eight of all the employees between Bangalore and Burbong.: I understand the examination in every case was batisfactory.' The continued absence of rainl has become serious. Nearly all the tanks in town and many of .the wells, have given out and householder'i are feeling the inconvenience. Unless. rain falls" within a few days "people will be at their wits' end. The health of the district is good.
MAJURA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
MAJURA. The continued dry spell we are hav ing is the cause of a good deal of anxiety here. Water for stock is giv ing out in places and grass jis getting scarce. I am given to understand that an other batch of local land owners are in receipt of notices from theFederal authorities re the resuomption of all their lands in the near future. The Young People's Club is still sleeping.. An attempt was made a few days.back'to get a move on, but failed, why I cannot say. Whatabout getting up a patriotic function? I think it would be a move in the right direc tion, and I am sure, would be a seno. oese. The people here speak well of the late Queanbeyan show,, and taking 'into considerationtbhe' dry weather it was up to any previous show; but one thing very much missed was the musio of the band, and the action of the committee in cutting down the fee asked for by the band is considered to be a mistake. In the death of Mrs. James Cooper of Gunndroo Road, a.good wife and mother has. gonie to- r...
Federal Capital. LAND ACQUIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
Federal Capital. LAND ACQUIRED. UNDER the powers conferred by the Lands Acquisition Act, the Common wealth Government has completed the acquisition of 50,173 acres in the Federal capital site territory. Whilst the amounts to be paid. to the pre vious owners still have to be deter mined in the ordinary way pre scribed by the Act, an approximate estimate of the money involved in the transaction is stated to be £j8o,ooo. The present occupiers, if they so de sire, will remain in possession for twelve months at a rental represent ing 3 per cent. on the purchase money. Where the occupiers are tenants, they can remain in possession for twelve months at their present rentals. After twelve months rentals will be reassessed; and it is antici pated that, allowing, for improve ments, there will be an all-round re return of 5 per cent. upon the capital invested.
NOTIFICATION OF BIRTH. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
NOTIFICATION OF BIRTH. Of great significance to, married people is the new requirement that the birth of a child shalll e notified to the Under-Seoretairy of Public Health.by letter or postcard wvitlin 36 hours of the event. This, it must be borne in mind, is quite distinct from the require ment to notify the local Registrar of Births. The idea:is to.. bring all new born. babies under the supervision of the Department at as early a date as possible. It is benevolently conceived but will make:'very severo demands:on unlettered parents, and.-in the Depart ..ment itself. -The. latteir will ffind its resources severely taxed, 'and 'the )par ents will be bewvildered by the clerical work involved, and by, the disorgauisa. tion of, their household arrangements produced by oflicial inforfere?ce. How-'. ever, if we are all'under the tutelage of the Trades Hall, to become good'Ger-. mans, the earlier id life that the change is made, the better..

RISING PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
RISINGE. PRICES. An excellent oartoon appeared in the ", Worker '-' last-.week.- :A balloon,, en; titled: " Rising. Prices,". waei' shown soariog in the.airi .whilst a ,policeiani labled The Necessary : ommodities Commission," was vainly trying to hold, :it down, and was himself being carried aloft:.by the buoyanoy of the balloon. Ase a graphio illustration of the impot : .."ence of Commissions, Governments, or anyone else to prevent prices from rising when market conditions favor snch a movement, the cartoon could hardly be improved upon. Of course, that was not the design with which it was published. The irrisistible upward movement was represented ao being due to the machinations of the "Trasts," whereas it is extremely doubtful if any suoh bodies exist. ' Even if they do, --their infuence on prices is influitisimal compared with that which is exerted by supply and demand. When supply is scanty, prices rise, Commission or no Commission, Trust or no Trust. When supply is abundant,...

WEARERS OF GLASSES. EBNEST BOSCH'S-VISIT. TuE well-known firm of Ernest Bosch, Con sulting Opticians of Martin Place and Pitt street, Sydney, who have been visiting this town for the past ten yenrs, writes :-" On account of numerous communications re ceived from this district, we feel obliged to warn the spectacle wearing public against persons using our name and working upon our reputation, not directly, but in such a manner as to mislead and make believe that they are representing us. Remember that this firm can only be consulted at Harrison's Hotel, Queanbeyan, on dates advertised.
AN OBVIOUS INFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
AN OBVIOUS INFERENCE. The inference is obvious. When prices become unpleasantly high, in stead of racking distempered imagina tions to conceive the wicked machina tions of imaginary Trusts, the saddle should be put on the right horse. From some cause or other, there is scarcity. JI that cause is removable, the obvious remedy is to remove it. If it is not immediately removable still, there should be sufficient practical wis dom among the people and their ad ministrators to guard against a recur rence of any of the removable causes which have contributed to the undesir able state of affairs which is complained of. Whether this practical wisdom is shown or whether it is not we may rest assured that, like the balloon in the picture, so long as scarcity persists and intunsities, prices will rise accordingly, and no efforts of administrators or com plaints of those who suffer can stop the" upward movement.
CAUSES OF SCARCITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
CAUSES OF SCARLCITY. Many causes concur to produce the present scarcity-so many that it is not surprising that the 'upward movement in prices hasbeen phenomenal.. There is the drought, which has caused a scarcity of breadstuffs and fodder, and which will further deplete the supply of sheep and cattle fit for the butcher. There is not enough of these commo dities to supply the demand. So far as fodder is concerned, the same mis fortune which causes a diminution of supply also brings about an immense increase in demand. Coincidentally, there is strong and increased demand for all these things on the other, where supplies are reduced by the war, and the consequent interruption to traffic. It is not easy to discern any prospect of improvement, unless the next harvest should be more bountiful than the last, and unless peace is restored to the world.
