NORTHERN VINTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 18 March 1914
NORTHERN VINTAGE. Tbo Mildura vine yield this season will (iysy the " Arguo" correspondent) establieh a record in all fruits, as the crop per acre, taking the settlement as a whole, is above the average. There are; unfortunately, growera whose re. turns will be smaller than over before. Cartain portions of the osettlement suoffered severely by a hailotorm, Some other growers, who exercised a false ooonomy iu "'saving the expense" of an extra watering, found that the un. usually dry weather caused barrios not to mature, or if they did mature to fall. After allowing for those exceptional cases, and for other losses by faulty pruningand oinoaturing, which naturally are very smuall whena compared with the large areas oontrolled byoxpperieno' d growers, the total output, and, what is more important, the ou'put per acro will this year be in exceaa of any pre. vious season.

DOOMED ISLAND SAKURASHIMA AND ITS VOLCANO [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914
DOOMED ISLAND SAKURASHIMA AND ITS VOLCANO Sakurashima, the small island in the South of Japan which has been devas tated by a volcanic outburst, is situated in the Gulf of Kago shima, opposite the city of the same name, says the editor of "The Japan Chronicle" in an interesting article in "The 'Manchestei' Guardian." The island Is 24 miles in circumference, and the crater of the volcano at the summit is B500ft. above sea-level. Ac cording to Japanese tradition, the island was produced by an upheaval of the earth's crust in the year 796. H-owever that may be, the volcano was within historic times very active, though for more than a hundred years now it lis been quiescent. There is no recorded case, moreover, of a vol canic outburst of Sakurashima equal to the present in the extent and com pleteness of the disaster. The volcano most feared in this region is that of Kirishima, higher up the bay, which can still be seen smok ing on most days of the year, and is oecasionally responsible ...
