PINE TREES AND ST. JOHN'S WORT. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 24 March 1914
PINE (TREES AND ST. JOHN'S WORT. The suggestion has frequently been made that the planting of pine hoes in infected districts might he found to check the spread of the weed known as St. John's Wort. The theory is that the pines would SUOK the nourishment out of the ! soil,- and the shedding- of the needles ! would cover the weed and rob it of | light and air. Under this combined attack it is believed that the weed I would in time succumb. The sug 1 gostion is welcomed by experts as a possible solution of the problem. | The officers of the Department of ! Agriculture think it should be tried, I and the Conservator of Forests states ! that the proposal is by no means one i to be laughed at. We pity the poor experts who wol i come this silly suggestion. In Beech I worth, near Fcaly's Rock, the St. j John's Wort has spread from the flats right up the lull in amongst pine . trees which have been growing there : ever since the Hood waters ran olT.

Our Melbourne Letter WELL ADVERTISED. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 24 March 1914
Our Melbourne Letter ?>VEIX ADVEIOTSED. If the Mayor of Richmond desired to advertise himself by refusing to drink the toast of the King whenever it was proposed, he has certainly suc ceeded admirably, for he is fast be coming about, the best written-up man in the metropolitan area. In fact, al though it is not in tile best of taste for the president of any municipality to Ignore the royal toast, it is a ques tion whether altogether too much has not been made of the incident sinco after all what they do down in the municipal hen-coop in a comparatively unimportant suburb like Richmond docs not. really matter very much. It, is an old truism that one extreme begets another, and following on the attitude of Mayor Webber, there Seenl to be some people in Richmond who are falling over each other to show their loyalty. It seems that at the luncheon at the local schools' picnic, a gentleman was challenged to sing the National Anthem, the mayor being present He did so, although neither M...

HOME RULE. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 27 March 1914
HQ'.ME ROLE: . The gravity .of any subject in jour nalism can generally bo gauged by the space taken up iri tile news col umns. .So for -the last two days we find head lines extending over two columns and several cofumns of let terpress detailing the extraordinary developments in the Home Rule for Ireland movement. From what can bo gathered it would seein as if tli® Asquith Ministry has resolved po make a demonstration of military force against the Ulster volunteers but were astounded by the fact that Major-General Gough and over 100 pQicers gave in their resignations rather than be used for coercive mea sures There was an immediate and jnglorious back-down of the Ministry, with the feeble explanation that the resignations were due to a "misunder Etonding." History repeats itself and the Asquith Ministry .would do >vell (o study the record of the revolution jthich convulsed the pnitod Kingdom and put an end to the fatuous Stuart dynasty in 1088. x m m m
POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 27 March 1914
POLITICAL. The paly noticeable feature in th0 political arena is the pilgrimage of Mr'Andrew Fisher, the Labour ex ponent, and it cannot be: said that hlg addresses are yery convincing, being1! chiefly abuse, .of his Liberal antagon jsts who have supplanted, flira and his ' party. One particular form of this .vulgar abuse was agaiijst non-union* ijts whom he stigmatised as ''sneakB j of society,'' Is it any wonder that; (he independent workers,' who form | the majority .of the. indvistrial class, I should resent such an insult. Yet Mr Fisher may .be excused. He is simply a puppet set up by the Labour party and must act accordingly or ho would soon find his occupation gono Therefore he is to bo pitied rather tlian condemned. * * * *
