DAIRY PRODUCE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

DAIRY PRODUCT? Steadiness continues to prevail in the local butter market. Supplies are now falling off rapidly, but there i<s still a substantial sur plus for export. Tftere is no tendency to wards any alteration in price at present- A large quantity of poor butter is on the mar ket, and this is difficult to sell. London buy ers are not operating to any extent, and most of the exports are going on consignment. Locally choice factory butter is selling at good to prime lid to ll^d, and medium inferior, and poor cream lots lower. Cheese also showg some decrease in cur rent arrivals, but there are still accumula tions in town stores awaiting an outlet. Bris bane is making heavy shipments to London. Eggs are generally unaltered in the range of prices. Ordinary storekeeper's lines show generally very bad quality, and there is no outlet, as backers are not buying. Supplies of eggs at . present are nearly twice the quan tity last year at this time. The range of prices then was l...

DISEASE OF BULBS A FUNGUS MALADY REMEDIAL MEASURES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

DISEASE OF BULBS 0 ■ A FUNGUS MALADY REMEDIAL. MEASURES ^ About three years ago, states a bul letin recently issued by the ICew hor ticultural authorities, England, a dis ease of an unusual nature was met with on various kinds of narcissus bulbs. The disease has increased to such a serious extent that, according to the statement of growers on a large scale, entire plots of bulbs have been completely destroyed. The injury is due to the presence of a parasitic fungus called Fusarium bulbigenum. Cooke and Mass first described it in 1887, the host being given as a nar cissus bulb. At that time it was not recognised as a parasite. As a rule, the presence of the para site is first indicated by the appear ance of small, yellowish spots on the leaves. These spots gradually increase in size, become brown and dry, and more or less covered with pale, salmon colored specks, which are at first rfrore or less gelatinous, but soon become dry and horny when exposed to the air. These colored patches...

WOMAN'S WORLD Topics of the Week FEMININE AFFAIRS REVIEWED THE FASHIONS OF THE MOMENT (All Communications must be Addressed: " 'Pomona,' 'The Weekly Times' Office, Melbourne.") Dyed Wigs [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

FEMININE AFFAIRS REVIEWED , THE FASHIONS OF THE MOMENT (All Oommuaication8 must be Addressed : " 'Pomona,' 'Tiie Weekly Times' Office, Melbourae.") Dyed Wigs According to an Australian who re turned last week from England, dyed wigs are more unconventional than ugly. To Australians, a description, of wigs shaded blue, green or purple sounds like a freakish fantasy. That is "because they are not initiated into the subtle lure of their attractiveness. They are tinted rather than dyed, and are in art shades, softening to white about the forehead and temples, giving the effect of a white wig, with the soft bloom of pale-tinted powder upon it The designers have every faith that women will adopt these wigs to wear with both evening and fancy costumes that border on the picturesque. They are not intended for street wear.

COMMERCIAL PRICES AND MOVEMENTS THE WEEK'S MARKETS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

THE WEEK'S MARKETS Tlie world's wheat position is somewhat sensitive at present. Broadly the positiou is that Argentina and India •will export con siderably less wheat to Europe this year and Russia considerably more, while Australia will also have a larger surplus. The exact ex tent of the Russian surplus cannot be ascer tained until traffic is wholly resumed after the Black Sea ports become free from ice in .March. "Beerbohm," of December 12, to hand by to-day's mail, on a special review of the es timated wheat requirements and shipments in the world for the current season, ending July 31 next, states that the general opinion ap pears to be that, with a world's record wheat crop, even after allowing for small crops in the Argentine and India (and making a large allowance for the official Russian estimate being much too optimistic), there must be ample supplies of wheat available. Requirements of importing countries and shipments -from exporting countries are esti mated by "Beerboh...

THE HONEY SEASON EXTRACTING AND RE-QUEENING. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

THE HONEY SEASON" EXTRACTING AND RE-QUEENING. Many apiarists (states a New South Wales expert) lose a lot of time when taking- combs of honey from the hives by waiting- to brush off .the bees. . Time can be saved by acquiring the knack of shaking1 them off. All bees except pure Ligurians drop clean off in one or two shakes; but with the latter four or five are required. The lugs of the frame are held on the tips of the middle fingers. The comb is suddenly dropped, the elbows being straightened, and at the same time the ball of the thumb is brought sharply in contact with the top bar of the frame. The whole thing, takes only a few seconds to accomplish, and the shake must be sharp and definite, so that the bees will have no preliminary knowledge of the action meditated. If the}' do get an inkling of what is com ing 'they get a tight grip, and are extremely difficult to dislodge. Some authorities advocate shaking the bees on to the ground in front of the hive | to get them out of the ...

THE BEEKEEPER QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Hive Pest. — S.V. (Nyora).—The insects causing the damage are probably cockroaches. Mr C. French, jun., Government Entomolo gist, says they are usually found in crevices near fire-places. They are omnivorous, their food consisting of any dead animal matter, cereal products, and other kinds of food. It is also stated that they will eat woollens and leather, frequently causing extensive damage to books. • The eggs, instead of being deposited separately as with other insects, are brought together in the abdomen of the female into a hard, horny pod or capsule, which often nearly fills the body of the par ent. The number of eggs in the capsule varies in the different species. They are arranged in two rows, the position of the eggs being indicated on the exterior of the capsule by transverse lateral impressions. The capsule is oval, elongated, or somewhat bean-shaped; and the young, when hatched, pass through a number of moults. It is stated by some entomologists tha...

PLAYS AND PLAYERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

By "B.J.O." Ideas of stagecraft and of what con stitutes a good play have changed con : siderably siriee "Diplomacy'! was first staged in London 36 years ago. Judged by modern standards, Sardou's play, which was revived at the Theatre Royal on January 10, is not only pal- | pably unreal, but the mechanism of its j construction (a branch of dramatic technique in which S&rdou was, once supposed by many critics to be -pre eminent) is very. evident to the criti cal -playgoer. The fact of the matter is that "Diplomacy," a production of the mid-Victorian period, is already . "dated." and in spite of the modernis ing of its dialogue, dress and scenery, seems at times rather old-fashioned. " But with all its . faults the play has still power to interest, and now and again to thrill a modern audience. Al though the whole thing appeals to one as a somewhat unnecessary storm in the diplomatic tea-cup, it is .. not lacking in its dramatic movements. The trouble is that the tricks with w...

VINES AND WINES WORLD'S VINTAGE AN EXHAUSTIVE REPORT. POOR YIELDS GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

WORLD'S VINTAGE — 3 AN EXHAUSTIVE REPORT. POOR YIELDS GENERAL. The European vintage of 1913, and Qlso that of Australia, has been re viewed by Messrs W. and A. Gilbey, of London. These experts state that' re sults on the whole in European countries have been disappointing. The i flowering period in the spring left but little hope of an average crop, even iri the best vineyards, and after spells of abnormally fine weather in- the late summer the rainy weather generally previous to the gathering, accompanied in many places by violent storms and inroads of insects, made it more than unlikely that the vintage could be satisfactory in quality any more than in quantity. Italy is almost the sin gle exception. The French grape harvest is about two-thirds of the 1912 crop, a deficiency which will be severely felt. The average annual pro duction of wine in France is about 1,000,000,000 g1alions, of which 95 per ceiit. is ordinary, and 5 per cent, is superior wine; and the total quantity produ...

FRUIT EXPERT'S TOUR FLY PEST AFFECTS AUSTRALIAN TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

fruit EXPERT'S TOXJJt FLY PEST -A AFFECTS AUSTRALIAN TRADE Ttr • -r * -- ^vxi vv. J. Allan, the New South Wales Government fruit expert, has returned irom a trip to America, Canada, and Great Britain. In California he noticed a prohibition of fruit from New South Wales, due almost entirely to an erro neous impression that prevails regard ing the ravages of the fruit fly in New (South Wales. "They assert over there," said Mr Allen, "that the fruit fly causes a loss of more than half our crops every year. Another statemont was that it practically ruined the fruit industry in New South Wales. I explained that this was absolutely false, and that 1 could not understand where they could have got such misleading information. It was at the Inspecting branch in San Francisco that these statements were made. They urged, too, that the money invested in fruit in California was so great that they could not afford to take any risks. They pointed to newspaper paragraphs about the fruit ily in this...
