Ellen Sinclair, a small shopkeeper in Leichliardt, was proceeded against by Inspector Keneli, of the Health Department, at ii.e Glebe Police Court, on Gtli March, for selling adul terated ice cream. Inspector John soil said lie went into defendant's shop. 011 January 23, and purchased Is Ud worth of ice cr.eam.

It was subsequently analysed, and found to be deficient in fat to the extent, of 65 per cent., and also con tained farinaceous matter not al lowed by the-Act. ' In ans.wer to the magistrate, the inspector said the farinaceous mat ter, which was . thought to be corn flour, had presumably been added to < increase the bulk of the ice cream.

Motoring. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

Motoring. Matters motoring are a bit on the quiet side in Sydney, but they are said to be positively dull in Victoria. While there is a fair demand for the touring car locally, the firms who Handle high-grade commercial ve hicles are kept busy supplying orders. It looks as though Mr. Anthony Hordern's 35-knot hydroplane will be the only boat nominated for the mo tor-boat championship of Austral asia, which is to be contested three weeks hence, on the Rose Bay-Manly course. At the time of writing there is no mention of an opponent for her. As Mr. Hordern's boat is one of the fastest in the world, it is not sur prising that she is to have a walk over. When at full speed she hops through the water like a kangaroo. Messrs. Pooley and Malone, who run a passenger and mail service be tween Braidwood and Tarago, have purchased a 30-li.p. motor char-a banc, which will accommodate 20 pas sengers comfortably. The vehicle will carry passengers and mails, run ning 60 miles daily. The body is now...

Water Rates. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

Water Rates. A difference of opinion exists in the minds of the Cootamundra alder men as to the basis of taxation for water rates. It was moved and se conded that the rate he l%d on the unimproved capital value. It was argued that by adopting the unim proved capital value people would be compelled to improve their properties. An amendment was proposed that the rate be %d on the improved value, it being considered that it was the; fairest way of assessing it, as it was the improved value got the benefit of the water supply. The amendment Avas carried. Water Supply Main.

Sculling. The four heats of the Parramatta. Hundred, the big animal sculling: event will he contested to-morrow, on the Parramatta, and the final is list ed for March 25. There are 41 men. ?handicapped, and the marks allotted, by the handieappers are indeed most extraordinary, for the scratch man, Dick Arnst, is asked to give away starts up to 2 minutes 10 seconds over' a course of 2% miles. The handieappers must consider Arnst to be supemnman, and he could be excused for not starting. It is the presence of men like Arnst, Harry Pearce, Hagney, and George Day, that will attract the people to the big event, and yet they are han dicapped right out of the race, or it appears as though they are. The race is attracting a lot of in terest, and as Harry Pearce is mak ing a big endeavour to get together £500 for a match for the world's championship, it will be interesting to note how he shapes. The handi eappers evidently consider Pearce to have 110 chance against Arnst in a match race, for...

The Henty Referendum. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

The Henty Referendum. Oulcairn Council recently went to considerable trouble to take the rate payers of Henty urban area into their confidence, and obtain ail ex pression of opinion from them be fore adopting certain measures for the betterment of their district. The council took a referendum on seve ral questions, as followsJp to .what amount in the £ (not* exceed ing Gd.) are you prepared to pay for First, street lighting; second, water supply (by standpipe); third, street and footpath improvements ? In ?what order should the council carry out these services ? The Clerk re ported that lie had sent out -106 bal lot papers, only 30 of which were re turned (less than one-third). The re sult was most disappointing, and at last meeting was adversely comment ed onby. the councillors.

Tamworth Water Supply Unsatisfactory. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

Tamworth Water Supply Unsatisfac tory. The Municipal Council of Tain worth being so dissatisfied with their town water supply, which has been In existence for thirteen years, and a failure from the start, has decided to invite the Minister for Works to the district, so as to make him fully acquainted with the facts of the case. The original scheme was to cost £37,500, plus 10 per cent, for con tingencies. The latest returns show the cost as £47,056.' The increase was due to defective pipes supplied by the Government, which cost an extra £2500, and also the failure or the srheme to supply power from the reservoir to drive electrical plant, Everything has gone wrong with the scheme, and tlie water - has hardly .ever, been fit for domestic use; cer tainly not drinkable. At the. council meeting the Mayor (Alderman Matheson) denied that the council had ever made itself liable for the scheme, which had been one of blunder from the start, and the people of Tamworth were now asked to pay fo...

PERA ORANGES. At Pera Bore a good many of the orange trees lost their leaves, and appeared to be in a dying condition, but since the late rains-for they had a few inches, even .opt in that far west country-the affected trees, like the others, are putting forth a fresh growth of leaves, and the tree's trouble, whatever it was, appiears to be over. Since they received such a good soaking at the roots they have picked up splendidly. The orangery is looking exceedingly well, and Mr. W. J.

But Mr. Worboys, who' for twelve years held the position ofvei£ aminer to the College, says: "It is a mistake to suppose that the experi mental farms are run with the aid of more expensive machinery than the farmers are able to purchase. My experience is," said Mr. Worboys, "that the farmers are ahead of the experimental farms. Many of them have better machinery than have any ' of the Government farms that I have seen, much of which is anything but up-to-date. Why it is so I do not know, biit there is the fact."

Job, of Coobang, 'read-a paper telling his experience with manures (super-phosphates) dur. ing the past two seasons. In 1909 he tried two small plots, one of four acres with Bobs, one of eight.acres .; with Turvey's Purple Straw, and one of 10 acres with Algerian oats. Both wheats were sown at the end of March, accompanied by 38 lb. of su perphosphates to the acre, and plots of each variety were in without man ure .on similar, conditions. , In each instance the amount' of seed used was 28 lb.' to tlie acre. The Bobs from the . uijmanural section gavo a yield of IS bushels, whilst that subjected to the influence of superphosphates realised 22 bushels.

Orchard Notes. Summer Pruning. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

Orchard Notes. Summer Pruning. The season is now ratlier too late to practise summer pruning, al though many deciduous trees ura growing so fast that some nipping back is advisable. When cut back so late in the season, there is little .risk of a second growth. Some of the lateral growths on young apple trees may be cut back if it is desired to strengthen the leaders. There is, however, little use in cutting back the leaders now for in most cases-it is too late to form spurs where required. Young trees may often be made to bear earlier by constaiit nipping tback of all growths except the main lead ers until the branches become cover ed with short growths, which deve lop into fruit spurs.;,'Any .; new growth made now,. riowe.ver, is i not likely to mature fruit buds in iyme. for spring flowering. On.pear trees tlie tips - of laterals/should, be. care fully examined before shortening, for if tlie swollen terminal buds are.cut oli, much of the next crop will be . destroyed. 1 .. . . The...

SPROUT SEED POTATOES BEFORE PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

SPROUT SEEU POTATOES BEFORE PLANTING. This is both a time-saver and a source of large yield. Remarkable results have been shown as the re sult of experiments made on Mr. W. Wedd's farm at Cheltenham (Vic .. toria) , under the supervision of the Department of Agriculture, to prove the value of planting potatoes in a sprouted condition, after having been trayed for six or eight weeks. The result "was, to show that, dealt with in this way, the yield of potatoes per acre was as much as six tons six cwt. more than when planted in the ordinary way. On the same plot tests with manures produced yields up to 15 tons' per acre. The Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Graham) said the results would be instructive to farm ers. The planting of sprouted pota toes was advantageous, because the seed Avas six to eight weeks less in the ground, and. there was not the same liability to disease or to injury from the early frosts. As the holder of the harvesting re cord P. II. Binnett's writes to the "Adelaide...

A.W.U. AND R.W.U. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

A.W.U. AND R.W.U. Graziers of all kinds are now being threatened with an excursion into their rights, that if assented to by the Federal Arbitration Court, before whom the case has just come, will deal a heavy blow to the small farm er and grazier. Hitherto the latter class, who have learned shearing, have made this process of earning money a good opportunity to increase their otherwise small annual income, and sons of larger farmers have of late years followed in the same footsteps, as a good shearer can, under present conditions, easily earn £5 per week. These men have worked in small sheds, where the arm of the A.W.U. does not penetrate. Besides, as farm ers, tney could not join a union which had for one of its objects the raising of a class of labour to which the far mer is opposed. Now the A.W.U. lias asked the Court for full preference to unionists, and it is seeking to draw the K.W.U. to join forces with it.
