CHICKS IN FOURTEEN DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
CHICKS IN FOURTEEN DAYS. Something unique in the poultry raising line has just been Wrought under notice. A resident of undoubt ed probity reports having hatched a sotting of eggs in fourteen days' time, instead of the usual three weeks.

This is an accomplishment which will take some beating, and opens up a vast field of speculation for paultry fanciers.

During 'the last three years' conferences, mainly composed of country delegates, were held in Sydney, with the result that the Liberals have now a platform containing ten main subjects, subdi vided into 58 planks, embracing every matter of progress arid advancement suitable to the -exigenc...
