IN MY GARDEN SWEET SCENTED ROSES Quest of Modern Raisers for Perfume [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926
M MY GADDEN **k^ -*- »- ACACIAS^g^*6 SWEET SCENTED ROSES — '? ? ♦? ? Quest of Modern Raisers for Perfume VThen it became known that the National Rose Society of England wus offering the 'Daily Mail' Cup to be won outright f.or the 'best scented seivi :;»*-» *.ncn» locf Jink- mnnv rose erowers throughout the country were keenly in terested. Possibly the question as *o whether new roses possessed this attri bute hr.s not troubled raisers of recent varieties, so long as in other respects they pleased the public. The award, therefore, for roses of perfume of new origin gave rise to much conjecture en the part of amateurs, and the question which has been uppermost in the minds of not a few growers whom I know and with whom I have discussed the matter was this: Is it pos sible to evolve a new rose the perfume nf n-hi^h chnli ho hptter than or differ ent from the perfume of those already in cultivation? As we know, no award was made, a no it was thought afterwards that the third week in Ju...
Gypsophila [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926
Gypsophila ? m One of i ho most beautiful flowers used for floral work is gypsopliila elegans. It is an annual, and seeds should be sown in spring and autumn, ana rne seedlings transplanted as soon as large enough. Have tlie soil rich and well drained, and put the plants in the open borders away from the shade of house or trees. The plants grow to a height of a few feet, and produce musses of dainty flowers car ried on slender stems, which are ex cellent for use with most flowers for floral work. The white variety is most generally grown here, but pink and rose coloured varieties are obtainable. There is another variety, gypsophili COVENT GARDEN H.T. ROSE.— Raised by B. R. Cant & Sons. paniculata, which is *a perennial. It has thick parsnip-like roots, and makes dense bushes two or three feet high, which are smothered with small white flowers. Propagation is by division in the autumn and spring, or from seed plantrd during April and May. Plant the seeds where the plants are ...
Rhubarb [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926
Rhubarb Rhubarb is a plant which demands a fair amount of watering and attention during the hot months of the year. The plants should be heavily mulched with watered lav'shly to produce a continued growth. The plants respond to generous treatment. Jf the soil in which they are planted has been deeply and thoroughly dug they will continue for a number of years to give good crops of leaf stalks. A couple of well-grown clumps will sup ply a family all the year round. There is no reason why good rhubarb eanno* be grown all. the year round if properly cared for. Spike of Stock '* .£-?
Information STAGHORNS, ELKHORNS, AND ORCHIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926
information ? ♦ — — BTAGgQBNS, BLKHORNS, AND ? . ?' ? ! ORCHIDS. 'Amateur' asks for treatment of staghorns, elkliomis, and orchids. , Answer. — Staghorns. and elkhorns grow best on green trees, but can also be grown on dead timber. A backing of some moisture retaining material. such as old jute bagging can be used, but into pieces, and -placed at the. back of the ? staghorns and elkhorns. If ?watered fairly regularly you should have 'no difficulty in growing these subjects on . wood blocks. w Do not grow right out in the sun. Orchids are a different proposition, as many varieties require pot culture, with compositions of crocks, ? peat, moss, and charcoal. The local den drobiuins are generally grown on trees or v?ood blocks, the latter requiring charring. Fasten the plants with wire and a little padding of peat; Moisture is essential, arid a certain amount of shade is necessary. I have Mt different times written- articles on the cultivation of various varieties of orchids, and at a ...
Gladiolus [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926
Gladiolus — .«. — !? Growe-s have found that flowers of the ? gladiolus can .be produced all the year i round by planting -in succession. Even j in tlie hot months of the year good i flowers are obtainable -where plenty of [ water is available. Of course, the flowers produced during midsummer are not nearly as fine as those of spring and autumn, but they arc nevertheless useful for decorative purposes. It is surprising how easy to grow and how free from disease and enemies these beautiful flowers ai-\ There is not so much attention required beyond staking and thorough cultivation as in the grow ing of many of our popular flowers. Gladiolus require a position open to the rays of the sun — it is no use planting them in shady aspects, as they become spindly, and refuse to produce flowers of aiiv size. or. if thev do flower, the flowers are sure to lack their brilliant colour ing. Tlie soil in which the plants are to grow must be rich, and a plentiful supply of water is necessary to kee...
SMALL POULTRY HOUSE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926
SMALL POULTRY HOUSE Makeshift buildings are seldom, pro fitable for poultry, as the birds ^annot be expected to produce eggs unless they have a comfortable house. Fortunately the outlay is comparatively small, and a decent building need not cos^ much for IlUlLttr.Ull£. JAitLUjaiJJ LUU «-uo* TH.H. wm.j,7 in different localities, and with the size of the .house, but something on the lines shown in Fig- 1, measuring cay, 6} feet long and 4 feet high at the front, and 21 feet high at the back should be a cheap proposition. The best material is good quality matchboard at lease 3-Sin thick, and pre ferably in widths of about 6in. The framework for a house of the size men tioned may be 2 by lin batten, some times known as slat* batten, and should be purchased ready prepa-red and ma chine .planed. This only costs a very small amount, more than the rough material, and saves a lot of time and trouble in hand planing. If rough ma terial has to be purchased than it will be necessary to plane th...
ARTISTIC ROOM DECORATOR'S CONTRIBUTION [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926

Now, it may be said that the decorator has enlarged the scope of his task, and there is con sequently less for the furnisher to do. For example, the overmantel has de parted, and there seems little prospect of its return. Truly, it was veiy fre quently a fearfnl and wonderful piece of furniture, especially the type termed 'Iiouis,'' with reference to ao particular period of French design. There were artistic overmantels devoid of any offence, but. to-day they would be con demned by the rigid labour-saving rules laid down by the modern housewife.

THE HOME BEAUTIFUL THE HOME MAKER What to Look For—Some Remedies [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926
[?] THE HOME MAKER ♦ ? What to Look For — Some Remedies Generally speakiug, homes are not built for profit, but for security (says 'The Australian Home Beautiful'). A man in business or in employment in1 a city must have some safe abiding place for him self and family. Without it he is tmeasj-, and that is a rlpfpimon^- +n «m*/iacc-fuT work and to the enjoyment of existence. With a settled home a man can plunge into life with confidence, knowing that his wife also is at ease, and that his children have a fixed anchorage, safe from the^ buffets of a turbulent world. Possession of such a domicile is worth good money in itself. Knowledge that the home may increase in marketable value is also comforting certainly, but is of secondary importance. In normal times not much profit is to be gained by selling one home and buying an muer, Decause an wouia-be buyers of a home are in about the same financial condition as the seller. They need the home foT its own sake, and. will buy only on that...
CONCRETING MARGIN OF SAFETY THEORY AND PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926
. CONCRETING MARGIN OF SAFETY THEORY AND PRACTICE To obtain the best results in concret ing we should naturally expect that the ingredients, mixing and setting, would be chemically exact to ; the smallest de tail; but in practice w_e find that the rocnnnsihilitv of rnakinz concrete is mainly thrown on the contractor Experiments have shown that the strength of concrete depends jnainly on the proper proportion of mixing water to cement, and. other ingredients, and that strength, can. be specified by stating how much water is used to each bag of cement, irrespective of any other factor, provided, of course, that sound mater ials are used; the term ''water-cement ratio' has, in consequence of this, come into our vocabulary Various concretes based oa the same formula have varied from 60 to 70 per cent- in strength, which experts contend can only be caused by the quantity of water used- The main and ultimate end to be attained is for engineers and qmliitARiH to be able to consistently pro...
OLD ENGLISH DESINGS FOR MODERN HOMES [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926
OLD ENGLISH DESINGS FOR MODERN HOMFS The Queen Anne style of architecture is particularly interesting to architects, decorators, and the public in general as to base the furnishing of a modern home. * It affords possible detail of comfort, and the flexibility of the tvpe is such that it can be developed in a eomparar tively simple way without sacrifice of the individuality whieh renders it so attractive. Perhaps the most charming homes of the time were the manor houses of the gentry, or even the comfortable English farmhouses, built as they were, ' with strong character and definite purpose, and all excellent models for homes to day. Never, perhaps, even during the years of Queen Anne's reign, was it easier to make use of this style than it is to-day, owing to the extent to which period furnishings are reproduced.
MARCONI'S LATEST RADIO "LIGHTHOUSE" [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926
MARCONI'S LATEST ♦ — RADIO 'LIGHTHOUSE' A rad,o signal-station whose beam can be received and recognised as easily as the beam of light from a lighthouse is now possible we are assured by no less an authoritv than Marconi himself, whose experiments are described in an article contributed by Jean Cabrerets to 'Le Quotidien' (Paris). We read in this paper: 'Senator William Marconi recently described, in a lecture in London, the stage that has now been reached in his experiments with radio-Hghthouses. The problem of sending out radio-beams to vessels at sea, at alj distance* and it- all weathers, would appear to be close to solution. By means of huge 'reflectors/' composed of wires stretched vertically along a parabolic half centrating a brndle of short hertzian waves (C to 18 feet), and to direct them in the same way as a beam of light is sent from an ordinary lighthouse. 'The Marconi reflet-tor, the equivalent of a giant mirror, turns on a pivot which directs it in turn to all points...
