FRUIT GROWING IN CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
FRUIT GROWING IN CANADA. The Canadian Minister of Agriculture is causing a special inquiry to be made into the fruit-growming industry of Can ada. The investigation will be con ducted with a view to seouring the best and most reliable information, respect ing the area and extent of land adapt ed to fruit growing in the provinces, and the varieties of fruit, which have been found to be most profitable and most successful in each locality; the tendency towards concentrating on the production of standard varieties on a large scale, and the facilities for dis tributibn and marketing. Of course it is well-known that fruit-growing in Canada has already assumed very con siderable proportions, but the industry is capable of indefinite expansion i-a view of the demand of the home and export markets.
APPLE EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
APPLE EXPORTS. Fruitgrowers, who export apples to Europe, will be interested in some sta tistics compiled by Mr Thos. Boss Walker, regarding the actual results of shipments made last season froum T=-. mania, under the private tarks of individual orchardl - Thi opera tions of on . h. or o o., small growers, ranging in quantity from 111 to 803 cases, and aggregating 6400 cases for the season, gave a net return on Hobart wharf of 6/10 to 9/9 per case. Sixty seven other growers exported between them 32,465 and their individual average net re turn for the season on Hobart wharf ranged from 8/9 to 519 per case. It must be remembered that Tasmanian apples as a rule do- not sell in Europe at such high prices as those from the main land of Australia. This evidence tends to show that small lines of well selected and oarefully-packed apples realise more money than the same class of fruit in large quantities. Buyers apparently are prepared to pay a con siderable premium to secure the whole of a...
PROCESSES IN THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
PROCESSES IN THE SOIL. There are two great processes going on continually in the soil, which are known to be due to the actit?ies of bacteria: (a) The conversion of am monia and other compounds contaimnng nitrogen, derived from decaying orga nio matter and nitrogenous fertilisers, into nitrates, the only form in which, so far as we know, plants can utilise the nitrogen. (b) The utilisation of free nitrogen of the atmosphere by le guminous plants. Both these proces ses are greatly facilitated by the pre sence in that soil of a sufficiency of lime. The application of lime to the soil is one of the oldest methods of treatment known in agriculture. It was apparently employed by the Ro mans 2000 years ago. In various Eu ropean countries it has been practised for many. years past.
NOISELESS CITY STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
NOISELESS CITY STREETS. There is coming into use in Germany i3 cheap and ready method of asphalting a stone-paved street which is showing good results. The space between par ing blocks are cleaned out to the depth of about an inch, and then a layer of melted asphalt is flowed over the street surface, the depth of the layer being about one inch. Before it is cooled, sand is sprinkled on and the surface is smoothed. At Frankfort a section of this kind is now laid, and it appears to stand the wear remarkably well. Should the method prove a success in general practice it Mill afford an Qxal lent means of deadoning tlie noise of city traffic at a small expense. It is quickly carried out; and it need nom stop the circulation on narrow streets for any length of time. Moreover, revairs are easily mnde.

TURNIPS AND NITROGEN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
TURNIPS AND NITROGEN. Mr Thlomas Jamliesor, Di?t or " thie Agricultuiral Ilesearh Association of Scotland, has made a careful con sideration of the turnip, which eu perience and experiment show does not require artificial nitrogen, but is spec ially supplied with mIeans for fixing the necessary qualities of this oloenint from the open air. Tihe rape plant hlas a structure practically identifical with the turnip. The special ~ xamin .00 of the turnip and rape was broughl.t about from the fact that a better crop of oats was secured afiter ploughing rape than resulted from oats after clover, In this connection. Mr Jamieson declares, "Not to carry tihe turnip leaves off the field cannot be too strongly repeated, The benefit to the succeeding crop is well-known. though it was not realised that they absorption of, nitrogen was by the leaves, and that provision of th-. el meut to the succeeding crop is the ex planation.

FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
FERTILISERS ON ,MEADOWS. The Agricultural Department of the Swiss Government have just published an interesting report of experiments eonduoted over three years to test the effect of different fertilisers on meadow land. The fertilisers experimented with were nitrogen, phosphate of lime, and potash, the fertilisers being tried alone and mixed. The conclusion arrived at is that, in order to obtain the heaviest and most profitable crops, it is neocs sary to supply fertilisers containing the three principal fertilising substances-- phosphoric aoid, potash, and nitrogen. The extra yield obtained from this sys tem of manuring covers the cost of the fertilisers and leaves a good profit. The effect of the manures is more mark ed on the first cutting than on the scoond cut, the average increase hav ing been found to be from 62 to 100 per cent. on the former, and 20 to 40 per cent. on the second crop.

FETTERED. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
FETTERED. Elma chides because she says That my love has faded; And her bodice heaves with sighs And obe sadly pouts and cries, Looks on me with tear-dimmed eyes By long lashes shaded. Thinks that if she threatens thus I will grow the fonder Of the lips that call for kisses, Arms that offer all the blisses, (What a wealth of true love this is For a man to equander 1) Elma vows I am forsworn Fondling her no longer; Sweetheart, if you only knew More than half your words are true, For I do not think of you Other loves are stronger. But 'tis not for other faces That my love grows colder; I am false for far grey skies,:Wo Where blue peaks of mountaits rise, i"And forget the girl who lies Warm against my shoulder, I forget her in the dreaming Of'a man's life-only, Where no woman hands are clinging, And no syren.voices singing, Hoofs upon a hard roa ~ringi , And a bush treck lonely! Clear horizons clipped in moriaing Mists about the valley; Strike the teat snd up! ~ wav t In the warm, delic...
THE GYPSY'S STAR. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
THE GYPSY'S STAR. The long road, the wide road, is ever a friend of mine, For I am kin to the wandering folk, and friend to the forest pine. A breeze may call through its branches, be it ever so soft and low, I always awake and answer-I always arise and go When I was born a restless star swung o'er my baby head, A gypsy's love the star had been, in days that long were dead It twinkled with an elfish light, it danced with silent glee, And then it save the gypsy's heart, a wilding thing, to me! When from the treps the nad wind tore the banners red and gold, They shut the doors and windows, and they shuddered with the cold. But I-it sang within my blood and hammered through my brain I I left the sheltered inglenook to follow in its train. I left the sheltered ingle-nook and fol lowed fast and far, And so I follow to this day, led by a witching star; It lures me on by divers wiles--- word, a vagrant tune, The ripple on a dreaming lake beneath a silver moon I The sunset gives me vintage ...
FRAGMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
FRAG MIENTS. In W. J. Locke's new novel, " Stella Marie," the unsophisticated girl who is passing her youth bound to a couch by spinal complaint, asks her favorite John Riaca what exactly is his work. lie re plies: "I teach the great and good men who are the King's Ministers of State how to govern the country. I show philanthropists how to spend their money. I read many books and tell people how beautiful and wise the books are, so that people should read them and become beautiful and wise, too. Sometimes I preach to foreign sovereigns on the way in which their countries should be ruled. I am what is called a journalist, dear." " It must be the most wonderful work in the world," cries Stella, aglow with enthusiasm, "and they must pay you lots and lots of money." " Lots and lots," " And how you must love it-the work, I mean ?" " Every hour spent in a newspaper office is a dream of delight," says Risca. Walter Herold, who happens to be present during this conversation, re marks, with ...
BLUE FLOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
BLUE FLOWER. Blue flower waving in the wind, Say whose blue eyes Lift up your waving fragile stem To the blue skies. Is she a queen that lies asleep In a green hill, With all her silver ornaments Around her still ? Or-is she but a simple girl, Whose boy was drowned, In some cold sea, some stormy morn On some blue sound? -Richard Le Gailienne (" Rarper's.")

FEEDING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
FEEDING CALVES. Clover hay is the best to keep before the young calf as soon as it will begin to eat. Pea and oat hay is also good. When the calf is four o, five months old a little lucerne may be given, but care should be taken not to feed too much, as there is danger of the lucerne causing scours. To raise calves with out any skimmilk is not very satisfac tory, although there are some good calf meals on the market, but will not take the place of skim-milk entirely. It has been suggested that after a calf is two or three weeks old, a bean soup may be given, which is prepared as follows :-Parboil the beans in soda, then drain off the water and boil again until soft; squeeze through a colander and add salt until the soup has a de cidedly brackish taste. Then stir in some pollard and linseed meal, and add lukewarm water until each calf receives about three quarts of the mixture. Of course the amount to be given will vary with the different calves. When calves are raised on this diet t...

HOMELY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
HOMELY HINTS. The tangled threads of yesterday Will still unsnarl with toil and pain, To-day, aur stubborn fingers play Sa4 havoc with to-morrow's skein. And yet. the pattern grows apaes, Despite the tangles that distress; And, at the last, it gains a grace, From all our patient clumsinesss. Use a bicycle pump to remove dust from tufted furniture. A slight draft on bread that is rising may cause it to come up very slowly and perhaps spoil it altogether. When roasting a turkey, :stuff the breast with pared sweet pitoties; they get a fine flavor from the juice. Try scraping off that burned side of your cake with a very coarse grater. Much superior to the knife. Before frying liver, try dipping the slices in hot water; the flavor is nn-I proved and much more delicate. When washing flannels, be sure that the soap is thoroughly dissolved, or it will stick, and the flannels hobe patchy when dry.

AMUSEMENTS. "THE SMART SET." [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
AMUSEM ENTS. "THE SMART SET." It was unfortunate for the two good comedy costume companies that visited Maryborough on Thursday and Friday nights respectively that the oppressively hot weather should spoil their houses. "The Dominoes" drew only a small audience on Thursday night, but that of "The Smart Set " on Friday was even less satisfactory, the attraction of the out-of-doors picture show being too much. This Smart Set Company came with a big reputation, and it was a Credit to their energy that they managed to sustalin such. The vocal niumbers were all acceptable, each artist singing well individually and in chorue. The ventriloquial work of Mr Edward Elliott evoked especial com. mendation.
