CHAPTER IV., Mrs. Bellairs waited anxiously for her husband. She wanted, to tell him what she had done, but at the same time she. honestly dreaded imparting -her news, for if there were an. up. right, steadfast, high-principled man, it was Peter Bellairs. He might.not like her having written to the hotel to invite Mr. Kruger to lunch, and yet she could scarcely keep him in ig. norance, for only by telling him could she get possession of the motor-car, which was to convey the worthy law. ver to Sunnyside. In the afternoon a letter arrived from Ralph. He implored his mother to let him have £100 without delay. "1 have got into a little trouble over bridge," he wrote, "and must pay it at once.

WANTED- CHEAP CORKS. If any ingenious -person can invent a suibstitute for 'corks i champagne bottles he may be sure of a very comfortable fortune, for champagne cprks pre expensive, a really good cork costing as high as sixpence. The reason for this high cost is principally the length of time that glyst ciapFs before a cork-grower can re4;Wise Qp his investment, Cham pagne corks are m&l only fro.q the finest Catalonia corkwood. After the tree is planted thirty thirty years must elapse before it is ready for the first stripping ; but this bark is too coarse for cham pagne, as is the second bark, taken off eight years later. Another eight years must pass before a champagne pork crop is gathered, making in all forty-six yegrs that the grower must wait liefore he can get any. material return f' rpm his troetP

THE FLIGHT OF FLYING FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 27 April 1914
THE FLIGHT OF FLYING FISH. The old problem of the flight of the flying fish has bsen revived by Mr. William Allingham. Naturalists usually explain that the propelling force is entirely the action of the powerful tail before the fish leaves the water, and that the only part played by the "wings'"--r enlarged and wing-like'pectoral fins-is to serve as parachutes for somewhat extending the leap. Theyc believe that this eatisfactorily accounts ior the observed flights of a few rods tp 200 yards or niore. It appears, however? that ma.y seamen claim that the passage through the air is a real figiet, the wtig-fins being kept in rapid motion, and that the fishes have a bird-like power in changing their course in air, one having been eeCn to turn as much asM 60 decrees to avoid eollision wLth a ve.sel's rjgglssg.

THE MERBEIN SETTLEMENT CLAUSE 69. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 27 April 1914
THE MERBEIN SETTLEMENT CLAUSE- 69. Perhaps one of the hstrongest argu ments for the retention of-thie- much discussed .69thl section- is (saiys the "Age") to be found-in the development of the Merbein irrigation area. Under the Murray Settlements, Act of 1907, section 14; there is incorporated the same condition'as to personal residence to be inserted in Crown grants when issued. In no degree has this provi sion limited the demand for Merbein hcldings, where, by a process of sub division on lsurrender to the CGrown, the holdings have increased from 135 to 225. -And the process is continuous. Those who have taken up larger allot. ments :than they can work, or whose financial:position is unequal to the re quirements, have no obstacles placed in their way if they desire to reduce their responsibilities. By surrendor to the CGown, with valuation for improve mnents it conditions have bcen complied ,vith, the Lands department facilitates the process of subdivision. The land is made availa...

SEED WHEAT. PICKLING AND SEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 27 April 1914
SEED: WHEAT.4 PICKLING AND SEEDING. 7At a meeting of the Yareowie branch of the South Australian Bureau of Agri culture Mr, G, M'Gregic gave his, ex periences inithe grading and pickliug of seed. The former practice he strongly recommended (says the local "Journal of Agriculture").. Last year he sowed 'Bluey wheat, pickled and unpickled. There was slightly more smut in the latter than in the treated seed, but the untreated crop came up much thicker. Lcatherhead, pickled, was slightly alfected, but the crop from unpickled seed was very .dirty ivith smut, al though it was Is one-third better crol, and the best price he had for hay. Federation was quite free of the fungus. The conclusion was that wh l-t pick ling to a large extent prevented the development of smut, it also detroyed the germinating power of a large po) tion of the seed. One pound of blue stone to 10 galls. of water is, in the opinion of Professor Perkins, quite strong enough. Stronger solutions iare apt to impair the ge...
SANDDRIFT PREVENTION. SOUTH AUSTRALIAN ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 27 April 1914
SANDDRIFT PREVENTION. SOUTH AUSTRALIAN ADVICE. Mr. W. Munday, a member of the Port Pirie Agricultural Bureau,: in South Australia, in an address, .re cently said the disastrous effects of drift were, in a large measure, due to the destruction of timber on .vast areas of mallee lands. At the pre sent time thousands of acres of pro mising wheat crops 'were being cov cred with drifting sand. Bare fal lowing and the practice of burning stubbles were also, in a large measure responsible for this drifting. The de nuding of large areas of timber, he contended, was affecting the climate and rainfall. The problem was a serious one," but was not insurmount able. Continuing, Mr. Munday said: "The State may fairly be asked to assist by inaugurating a vigorous . policy of afforestation on Grown lands suitable for the purpose, and repurchasing land in settled districts where available, and the locality, soil, and rainfall are of a character to promote the -growth of timber suitable for commercial...
