SAID THE FRUITSELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 30 January 1912

THE FRUITSELLER. "Do you know what makes fruit dear?" says a local fruitseller. "Not the fruit that's sold, but the fruit that's not sold. They won't let you sell fruit. I had a barrow once, and 1 sold three times as much fruit as I do now, but they hunted me. 10,000 bunches of bananas came into Sydney the other day, and 011 top of it came another 10,000. The agents said, 'If we put this second lot on the market, the bottom will fall out of it.' So they re-consigned it to Melbourne, but secretly advised the captain to chuck It overboard when he got outside the heads. They won't let you "oil fruit." The project lor establishing a Labor daily paper in Sydney is gathering strength, according to a report from the P.L.L. Up to Saturday last, £ 94,000 has been contri b\ited by the various unions, and of this, £ 56,000 in cash has been furnished. The minimum amount with which the venture is to be launched is £ 100,000.

mr igmtoml& pastoral notes. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND (Issued by the Department of Agri' culture). BLACK SPOT IN GRAPE VINES. The Viticultural Expert of the De partment (Mr M. Blunno) recom mends the application o£ a solution of sulphuric acid during winter for the eradication of "black spot" in grape vines. There is no better me thod known at present to cope with this troublesome disease. In referring to the spread of this fungoid disease, which was unusually virulent through the wet summer of 1910-11, Mr Blunno says that such climatic conditions were bound to cause a violent outbreak. . This year where the conditions were, and are, temporarily favorable to fungi growth, the disease seemed to defy any treatment. Acting on the suggestion of the Viticultural Expert, a vinegrower near Oabramatta, whose vineyard has been very much affected by "black spot" during the summer of 1910-11, applied the sulphuric acid three times during the previous winter, at intervals of three weeks, ...

OUR LADIES' LETTER. (By Reseda). We celebrated tlie anniversary of our 124th birthday on the harbour on Friday, January 26th, under the most auspicious conditions. If the spirit of Captain Cook had been hover ing o'er the scene it must have been elated by gladness by the gaiety of the assemblage, combined with glori ous weather, and the beautiful white wings of the yachting craft. The ideal day brought forth much complimentary comment from the speakers. His Excellency, Lord Chelmsford, in his usual happy style, delighted the gathering at the ban quet with his humorous remarks on I land lubbers versus salts. Being of ! a purely terrestrial sporting type, he jocularly placed the 'acquatic on the second rung of the sporting ladder. Judge Backhouse also entertained the company with a light-hearted speech, in which he thanked Lord Chelmsford for his bright company, j and was about to heap adulation and thanks upon his head for the glorious weather conditions, when he suddenly remembered ...
