LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 27 June 1913
' LADIES? LETlBR. (By "Irene.!') A well-known Victorian politician who visited London in the time of King Edward to take up a position . there was being initiated by a certain Australia^ official in the niceties of etiquette, more especially in manners as suitable to occasions when Royal ty happened to be present. "See here," eounselled the self-constituted adviser (a one-time Premier), "Promise me that when dining at the same table as the King you wont tuck your dinner napkin in your collar or speak of the square of linen as a serviette." The politician fulfilled his promise nicely, though- finding it almost a hopeless task to keeip his'table napkin on his knee. Imagine his petrefaction, therefore, when feverishly clutching the piece of napery, he beheld His Majesty gracefully tuck his' square in the top of his collar. Leaning for ward to catch the eye o£ the ■official adviser, the Victorian politician cried ; loudly. "There; you are wrong again,' as he inserted his table napkin co...

The Position of Riverina. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 27 June 1913
( The Position of Riverina. • A civic welcome was extended ut Moama on Friday to Mr. Griffith, Min istor for Works, and party, who are inspecting the route of the proposed railway from Moama -to Moulamcin. :" Inv responding to the toast of his health, Mr. Gnflittr said his Govern ment had succeedjed in killing the su perstition existent previous to their re gimo that if a district could not trado with Sydney it should not trade at all. The tendency was for a less provincial outlook, and today the boundary of a State was not a harrier to circum scribe .the trade of districts such as that of Rivcrina. Riverina had been treated by former New South Wales Governments as a bad step child. The view his Ministry held was that if trado wont to Victoria that Stale was welcome to it. The present Govern ment had established one connection which would carry trade into Victoria, and lie had ginned an agreement auth orising the Victorian Government to work the railways for a distance of 40 miles i...

Handling Wheat in the Country. AMERICAN EXPERT'S VIEWS. STATE'S WASTEFUL SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 27 June 1913
Handling Wheat in the Country. AMERICAN EXPERT'S VIEWS. STATE'S WASTEFUL SYSTEM.! -Mr. G. T. Burrell, of Chicago, who has beon specially commissioned by tlio State Government to report on • the methods in New South Walc.i of truck ing and shipping wheat in New South Wales, has looked into the way the grain is handled in the Wyalong district (reports the "Herald" ropio ontativo). Mr. Burrell, inspecting the central Wyalong station, stated that the method adopted by the farmers and. railway authorities was wasteful. "If' I told them in America," said Mr. Burroll, pointing to a heap of wheat on tho ground, "that that had escaped from a sack; that they spill tho grain about like that, and in such a wholesale way, they would say I was exaggerating. But here you see the wheat escaping from all these bags, some of wnich aro rotten through exposure to tho elements. It certainly keeps tho cattle hereabouts fat." A horse was breakfasting contentedly on the wheat on the ground that had oscaped...

The twentieth annual confer ence of the Farmers and Settlers' Association was opened in Sydney on Monday last. The president, Mr. R.

He declared that our Closer Ssttlement Act had been left a dead letter, and that the Department of Lands had been put under a cloud by being left without a Minister, and tacked on to the Lands Department That was a matter the Govern ment would have to reckon with next October. Mr. Patten then went on to re fer to the Rural Workers' Union, and its amalgamation with the A. W.U. and other unions. ''They're a combine," a member declared. "A combine with restraint on trade,'' the president agreed. Probably something more would be. heard about that later on.

WHEAT BAGS. WHAT THEY COST THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 11 July 1913
WHEAT BAGS. WHAT THEY COST THE FARMER. Evidence gircn before the Victorian Royal Commission on tho marketing, transport, and. storage of wheat shows. that the constant outlay in providing ft new- grain bag at a cost of from 6d to 7d, which the farmer haB to incur orcry time he markets three bushels of wheat, is an: oppressive factor, which has, more than anything else, turned tho producers' thoughts to the elevator system (says the "Herald."). The only return which the farmer re ceives ior his expenditure on tho bag is its equivalent weight paid for as wheat. This when Anally adjusted means nothing. Tho value of the bag, apart from its equivalent weight in wheat, does not enter at any timo into a contract in the salo of wheat. The , position is made worse from the pro Queers' point of view by the ever-in creasing cost of the bag, - and an oxhb-'■ Derating deterioration in quality. The burden of the cry ol the Aus tralian wheat producer is, "Save us from the cost of tlio bags and tho...
