THE GARDEN. COLOUR IN APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

T.H E GARDEN. + COLOUR IN APPLES. Evidence in support of the old opiiion that sunlight is the ehiej ogent in developing colour in apples j is afforded in a bulletin from the ! Pennsylvania]) experiment station on "The Fertilising of Apple Orchards." Various dressing's were applied to the trees in order to ascertain their re spective effects upon growth of wood and yield and colour of fruit. Farm yard manure and nitrogenous artifi cial manure alone or in combination notably increas-ed growth and yield, but reduced colour. Th'3 latter is at tributed to "delaye-d maturity and a diminished light supply to the fruit, due to an increase in the density of the foliage.". It is added that ex periments proved that exposure to sunlight after picking increased red ness by over 35 per cent., while some of the same lot of fruit stored in darkness showed practically no deep ening of colour. The conclusion is that "maturity in sunlight on the trees is undoubtedly the greatest in fluence affecting r...

HINTS ON PIG FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

hints on pig feeding. I j It is reported from England that a farmer owning a number of pigs was ; in the habit of feeding1 them with tae ' kitchen refuse from a restaurant, to ; which he added barlej meal and 1 molasses to flavour the food. As ^n : experiment he omitted the molasse.s which the pigs liked very much, an:l : then found that the excrements of the animals contained pieces of undi^e^t ed food, and that the animals be ; came finicky in eating. When he again added the molasses these symptoms | disappeared ; the pigs ate greedily, j and the food was quite digestei. ! Salt is another substance that adds to the flavour of many foods makin; them more appetising and therefore more digestible. When cooked pota toes are fed to pigs, salt should al i ways be added, and every farmer j knows that a little salt mixed with ■ hay, that is not quite as fresh as it {might be, is a great improvement. ! It is said to be a fact that the pigs of large litters are usually more uniform in size,...

DEATH OF CARBINE. REMARKABLE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

DEATH OF CARBINE. remarkable horse, The death has taken place at the Welbeck Stud, Worksop, of the famous horse Carbine, the property of the Duke of Portland. Carbine, who was in his 29th year, was worn out, and had to be destroyed. He had lived a lite of laziness for the past four years. In August, 1910, some sportsmen in New Zealand sent a cable message, oi which the following is a copy, to the "Duke of Portland :—" People Auckland want Carbine die land of bis birth. Will you sell ?" The idea was to allow Carbine to end his days in luxury in Auckland, and after his death that he should be stuffed and presented to the Auckland Museum. Arrangements had, however, previously been made by the Duke for the disposal of Carbine's skeleton. Though Carbine was foaled in New Zealand, he became famous through his deeds on the turf in Mel bourne, and this, no doubt, had some influence with the Duke of Portland in deciding him to allow his bones to find a resting-place in this city. Mr. Robert ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

Landowners throughout the Mirboo district are much dissatisfied with un improved valuation? placed on their blocks by the Government valuer for State Land Tax purposes. Many farmers are preparing to test their cases al court. A few instances may be given of the manner in which the valuations have been carried out. The valuer put the unimproved valuation on one block at £8/10/- an acre, but the owner sold the block a few weeks ago at £s/ioj an acre, all improvements included. Another block a month ago was sold at ^7 an acre with all improvements, while on the adjoining block the unim proved valuation is put down at an acre. Farms eight or nine miles out are for sale at about half the price at which the valuer has estimated the un improved value. At Longerenong Mr. Drevermann, I Principal, reports that the total area under crop will be 500 acres, including wheat, oats, barley, peas and rape. Ten principal varieties of wheat are be ing grown this season. The rape, peas, barley, and oth...

FOOTBALL. MINYIP v. MURTOA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

FOOTBALL. MINYIP v. MURTOA. As anticipated," this game for the Niewand trophy on Wednesday was well contested. The wind was the chief factor, and Whyte (the field umpire) allowed a good deal ol latitude, making the play very rough in the last half. Murtoa has a weak team this season, and Minvip felt the loss of A. M'Gilp, N. M'Giip, Hobson and Brierly. Min yip with the wind gained a lead of three goals the first quarter, but Murtoa led by four points at half-time. In the third quarter Sleith unfortunately put his knee out, and he had to be taken to Dr. M'l-ean in a motor-car. The dislo cation was righted, and, the limb placed in splints, but it will be weeks before Mr. Sleith recovers from the painful accident. After this the home team had all the best of the game, finishing the third quarter five goals ahead. The visitors pulled up a little in the final flatter; but the game was all over, the final scores being—Minyip io.G, Mur toa 4.12. O'Rourke again particularly distinguished hi...

PERSONAL PARS. Mr. Percy Evans will be leaving Murtoa with his famity on Monday next for his new home at Morwell. He will be farewelled by the townspeople at the Mechanics' Institute at 9.15 on Saturday evening, when all friends are invited to attend.

THE FEDERAL FIGHT. SOME FALSE ISSUES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

THE FEDERAL FIGHT. SOME FALSE ISSUES. " A clear fire, and clean hearth, and the'rigour of the game." " 1 his," says Charles Lamb in his famous essay, ".was the celebrated wish of old Sarah Battle who, next to her devotions, loved a good game at whist." In the same spirit Mr. Cook, speaking in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, •aid:— While this fight is going on I don't wont a tittle of advantage to ray side. I want a straight, square, utandup fight. Any step that will help to that end I ah^ll be only too delightoa to take. The words used by the Prime Minister aptly express the feeling of every honest citizen, be he Liberal or Laboriie. It is a pity there/ore that, on Wed nesday, some members of the Opposi tion saw fit to say very wild, very sweep ing things, about an alleged conspiracy to disfranchise the nomadic worker. The assertions as to the doings of Liberal organisers unnamed werealmost, though not quite, as startling as the absence of definite facts to support them. ...

THE TRADES HALL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

THE TRADES HALL COUNCIL. Sir,—The socialistic speakera may say anything at the moment, but they have not the faintest intention to abide by_ what they say. Mr. Fisher is re ported to have said in Horsham that any party of men joining themselves into a union are entitled to all the bene fits held out in the Act for Preference to Unionists. However, in practice they (hove the Independent Workers' Union away from all privileges. Mr. Hannan, M.P., last week, when before the Prime Minister re 6coo unemployed, took objection to Mr. Packer as repre sentative of the " Liberal Workers Union," and said : "The Trades Hall Council la the only body qualified to speak on the unemployed." Sir, this is plain talk in regard to what is meant by "preference," and further comment is onnecessary. How much longer will tre stand to be fooled by Fisher and Co.? PAUL MACKENZIE, NHiil, 8/6/14.
