Watering House Plants. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 16 January 1914
Watering House Plauti. Amateurs, as a rule, are not judiciour when it comes to watering house plants. In point of fact this is an important Smantter--one that controls to a great ex. tent the thrift of the plant. A good plan with most plants is to wait until the soil is quite dry, and then water sufficiently to moisten the soil down to the very bottom of the flowerpot. Iroli age plants ought to be often sponged oi syringed, so as to keep the leaves free from dust. Deprived of the rain, which would naturally cleanse them, and not often watered with a rose potor syringed,. the plants kept in a room are apt gr4lu. ally to loose their health, even if they d. not die. The remedy for this is the reg? ular use of a small Iiece of soft old eponge with slightly warm water, and in the case of "blighted" plants a little yellow soap, soft soap or insecticide. Especially is this necessary in the win* ter, when dust is rife, and a3 "blight" is then at its weakest point a thorough cleansing during...
FRUIT AND FLOWERS HEATING GREENHOUSES. Comparative Morits of Steam and Hot Water for Horticultural Buildings. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 16 January 1914
HEATING GnEENHOUSES. Comparative alorits uf !tea.m and tol WVateor for iorticultural Buildings. One of the first ComnparatL.ive tests war made by Peter Hi,.derson about 188! and the iesult was a saving of 25 per rent. of fuel in the house heated by steam, while the plants thrived equally well with those in the house heated by hot water. In a bulletin issued by the Corner station. Professcr Bailey sayr: "All our experience emphasizes the greater talue of steam, but it must b6 understood that we do not condenin hot water." The'following are some of..feb conelusions reached after a trial o" bitti systenms at Cornell station: The heat from steam pipes is dla _buted over a greater length of pipe, d as steam is ordinarily carried at a sigher temperature than hot water it has a distinct advantage for he'ting long runs. There is less loss of heat in the steam risers than in the hot water risers, and this means that more heat in the steam system is carried to the farther end of the house and...
The Durability of Timber. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 16 January 1914
IThe Durability of Timber, - TI'he durability of timber is not whoPy dependent upon the fibers of the wacd, but is partly owing to the quality of the sanp, which in some trees is of a highly preservative nature; thus, the oal has an astringent or tanning principle as well as a ferruginous quality in its Juices, and it is from a combination of these qualities that its. durability in ex posed situations is obtained. The qual ity of oak timber is never better than -when the tree is grown in a good loam or loamy clay, resting upon a subsoil of blue clay, from whbch it obtains the ox ide of iron with which the woo' be comes impregnated.

Pettit said the turncock's report opened up the questlcn of taking definite steps to improve ithe water supply. Had lthere been a high wind from another direc tion the consequencles/of the late fire would have been serious. Peo ple were wondering why the pres sure was short in cases of cmcr gency, and dould not the Trust take some steps to prevent undue ,waste of w?.?er and obtain a better pressure in the mains. There was either an excessive waste of water, or the scheme was not strong enough to supply the town, owing to the increased number of clon hectlons . The matter was be'cbm ing serious. The...
