Willowie. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 12 December 1919

Willowie. December 1st.-Once more the sound of the reaper is heard in the land. The fashion in harvesting machinary seems to have swung right raund again, and every old stripper that can stand on its legs is being spruced up and sent into the field. The chief reason for the retirement of th« complete harvester is aaid to be the de mand for cocky chaff, the virtues of which as stock fodder are chiefly recognised during times of drought, and as the old stripper saves ali the "cocky" along with some of the wheat, fancy prices are being paid for choice specimens, as high as £3 . having recently been paid for a machine guaranteed not over 25 years of age. The wheat yield throughout this hundred varies from nothing to 20 or more bushels per acre, but so far we have heard no estimate of the probable yield of cocky chaff.

* The Elections. Saturday iaf-t passed very . quietly . at Peterborough as regards the elections, and al though a record poll-ot 1,330 was re<Jstered and the officers had a vry busy time of it, no,hustle was apparent in the booth, and everything passed off without a hitch,-thanks to the excellent arrangements made by the presid ing officer a ad staff. The enquiry officers had a very brisk time answering questions regarding the new system of voting, which was disappioved by many. As was expected the informal votes constituted a record In the Grey Division the retiring member (Mr. Alex. Foynton) was opposed by Mr. C. L. Gray, of Port Augusta, and on Sauurday night's count it appeared as if the Minister for Shipping was in doubt of retain ing his seat, but as the count pro gressed he picked up the de ficiency and is now cousidered to be safe. Mr. R. W. Foster, for Wakefield, easily held his own. The result of the elections so far as can be ascertained will give the Nationali...

BOOLEROO CENTRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 19 December 1919

BOOLEROO CENTRE. December 14.-With favorable wea ther, reaping has been well advanced. Some have finished, and much wheat is being delivered to the Pool agents. Most farmers have had "cocky chaff" collectors working behind their harves ters to save the chaff, and a good lot lias been reaped by ordinary strippers for the same purpose-save all you can. It is a bit rough on the poor farmer that when he has collected his wheat into sacks, forfeiting 5d. per bushfel for the covering, he has to deliver it to the Wheat Scheme without any assur ance of how much, or how long or how short, he will have to wait for any pay ment for -the year's produce. Is it reasonable to expect farmers to live on expectancy of something to come for their labour, when the powers that be choose to assign something? It's the dread of imposition wheat growers are up against, when they are treated as they are at present! If primary pro duction is of no value to, 1he producer, how can "he afford to pay his way unde...
