Admiral Henderson's report is a severe shock to those lights hearted political visionaries who .proposed that .Australia might jauntily become independent of' assistance from the Imperial fleets. Admiral-' Henderson tells us that in -order to - merely provide a feather to the wing of British sea power we must .build 52 warships, consisting of S armoured. cruisers, 10 protected cruisers, 18 destroyers, 12 submarines, and. a few other items. We' must' have' navar'b'ases, sub-bases, docks, depots, and wire less stations in addition.

THE LOCUST PLAGUE. How to Combat It. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

THE LOCUST PLAGUE. How to Combat It. Fanners . aiul pastoriilists and others would do well to read a re cently -published bulletin dealing with' the subject of "Locusts in Australia and Other Countries." The doprada tions of this pest are often overlook ed, simply because its visits are in termittent. Precautions again*t its reappearance are neglected, and young locusts allowed to hatch out without let or hindrance. Warnings seem to be much in vain. And yet the means of fighting the plague are within the reach of those most concerned. In the bulletin in question, Mr. W. W. Froggatt,-the Government Entomo of years ago to inquire into the ques logist, who toured the world a couple tioris of insect :pests, etc., gives some very interesting information on the various methods adopted in other countries for coping with these wing ed visitors. Landholders will be interested-and perhaps sorry-to learn that there are half a dozen different varieties of locusts prepared to assist in their mis...

POTATO BLIGHT AT GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

POTATO BLIGHT AT GOULBURN. For the last week or two ugly ru mours have been in circulation re garding the presence of Irish blight in the potato crops in the Goulburn district. Inquiries were made, but al though it was known that sundry potatoes had been set aside by the inspector and later sent to the Go vernment Microbiologist for examina tion, nothing was said about the matter, in the hope that it Avould prove a false alarm. Unfortunately, the potato farmer has to face the fact that lie has the blight in his midst. It has been discovered at Myrtleville, Taralga, Chatsburv, Tar lo, Middle Arm, Towrang, Greenwich Park, and Tallong. It was first dis covered at Myrtleville.: It was found here on the easterly slope of a highly elevated farm, and strange to say this has been one of tne features of the outbreak, which is very wide spread. It is always the crop on the easterly side of a hill that has been wiped out by the blight; uie crop on the west is practieauy untouched. This gives g...

Railways and Population. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

Railways and Popu lation. If one were to be guided by the countless numbers of " clearing sales" which are announced week after week in the rural districts, lie might not unreasonably infer that Riverina was in active process of abandonment, and that an exodus to the city and other parts of the State was taking place. During the past six months many hundreds of farmers in Eastern and Southern Riverina have either sold or leased their holdings, and scores of others are arranging.to,do the same thing. In spite of this apparent drain of population, settlement increases apace, and would increase at a still faster rate if the railway system of the country were conceived and work ed upon intelligent, common-sense lines. The chairman of the Public Works Committee, whose knowledge, such as it is, seems to have been ac quired wholly in a city atmosphere, declares that " railways do not make population." This luminous observa tion Was made in the course of th© inquiry concerning the advisable...

GRENFELL RAILWAY YARDS, SHOWING WHEAT STACKS. Grenfell district has produced about 300,000 bags of wheat this season, and when this production is doubled, as it will be some day, the appearance of the railway yard (as of the railway yards in the big wheat centres), can be well imagined... A new dead-end has just been completed between the two stacKs at the left-hand corner of the picture, to cope with the increased traffic this season.

TASTY DRIED PERSIMMONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

TASTY DRIED PERSIMMONS. .Judging by the satisfactory results of an experiment made by Mr. Vol mer,. nurseryman, of Epping, dried persimmons in marketable quantities, should soon be added to the list of local products. Some specimens re cently sent to the fruit section.of the Department of Agriculture won the warm approval of Mr. W. J. Allen, fruit expert, who thinks they are likely to be successful rivals of dates and figs. These dried persim mons have a very pleasant, datey fla vour, and should prove an excellent variant for dessert purposes. The great recommendation is their deli cious taste, notwithstanding that out wardly they look like a piece of brown, flat earth, and lack all pre tensions to attractiveness. The me thod of preparation adopted by Mr. Volmer was exceedingly simple. When the fruit was fairly ripe, it was plucked and tied by the stem to a bamboo road, each fruit separate from the other. The bamboo rods were placed in a warm, shady shed, and left without any other ...

TESTING SHOW WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

TESTING SHOW WHEAT. For the lloyal Agricultural Show 105 exhibits of "wheat have been en tered. and samples of these are now being tested in the chemical branch of tlie Agricultural Department. It is not generally known that this branch possesses a complete milling plant amongst its numerous appli ances, and one thoroughly up-to-date -a miniature of the best found in the largest roller Hour mills. It is not necessary, as some have supposed to send samples of "wheat to one or other of the commercial flour mills to be tested as to milling qualities. On the contrary this work is all done in the chemical laboratory by one or more of the expert departmental officers, and all that is to be known about the grain is discovered there. Of the 105 samples submitted the heaviest is found by the clirondo meter to weigh 06% lbs. to the bushel, and the lightest 01 lbs. The actual quantity weighed by -this use ful machine is about one pound ..weight,theinstrument being scaled so as to indicate ther...

CHERRIES AND ORANGES TOGETHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

CHERRIES AND ORANGES TOGETHER. While at. Inverell," Mr. Trefle and his party, paid a visit by motor-car to the farm;,of Mr. G. F. Lewin, some seven or eight miles from the town. Mr. Worboys, who was of the party, says they found here a lovely or chard, in which cherries and oranges and all kinds of fruits were growing. In the purely farming portion of this well-kept property were various sorts of vegetables, an assortment of which, exhibited as a trophy at the Inverell Show, gained Mr. Lewin the first prize. Cherries here are a very pro fitable crop, from which the < owner makes hundreds of . pounds every year. It was quite an eye-opener to see the cherries and oranges growing almost side by side, as they are sup posed to require different climatic conditions. Mr. Lewin's estate is not very extensive, under 25 acres, per haps, but it is admirably cultivated. While the Ministerial party was there, they were shown an interest ing collection of -native grasses of all descrip...

It is declared to be a splendid grass for that country,, in fact, the best of any tried up to the present.

PROFESSIONAL SPORTING FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

PROFESSIONAL SPORTING FEDE RATION. A big effort is being made to form, a Sporting Federation, by joining to gether all the professional bodies in. Sydney. Delegates from the League of Swimmers, League of Wheelmen,, and Athletic League, met on Monday night to draw up a constitution for submission to the various bodies. The three bodies named are making a big' effort to induce the Rugby Football League to throw in its lot, but the latter will not do so, although it has. not yet definitely refused. The Rugby League officials contend that they are not professionals, as their players only receive out of pocket expenses, and they cannot, therefore, join any professional or ganisation. The cyclists, swimmers, and runners, will make an effort to carry through the proposal, but it is ? doubtful whether the Federation will be a success without the League foot ballers.

Cultivation An Upside-down Vision. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

An Upside-down Vision. Judging' from the Minister for Works' remarks to a deputation the other day, there is not much chance of getting the bulk handling of wheat : system put into operation from the present Government. Considering what Mr. McGowen had to say when in the Opposition, anent the advisa bility of the reform of. the.; railway methods of handling wheat, and ad vocating bulk handling, tins is dis appointing. Mr. Griffith "appears to have had his ideas created, or cer tainly influenced by the officials, and the Minister that cannot get a good deal away from the eternally cast iron red-tape official view is never going to do much practical good. Boiled down, the Minister's argument is that we are not producing enough wheat to wai-rant the! expense of in troducing the elevator system. He said:-"No Government'would be jus tified in laying out the immense sum of money necessary to establish the elevator system xiritil the wheat pro duction lias materially increased. We want it ...
