"THE BLUE BIRD." Fairy Tale Philosophy. Maeterlinck's Wonderful Imagery. A First Night Triumph. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 8 June 1912

'1 ? ?! 'THE BLUE BIRD.' 'V ? ' ' ' ? ? Fairy Tale Philosophy. Maeterlinck's Wonderful Imag«y. A First Night Triumph. Maeterlinck! The soft dreaminess of the name itself seems to speak phantasy. There is a harmony in it which suggests a man whose whole mission it is to gather up wayward snreds of happines, and out of them weave a web to gniwAjfo, and make captive, the world's sweetest thoughts. A dream play, they call this allegorical story of the pursuit of the bird of happiness, but it is more than that. No didactic lesson is here, designed of its own force to en chain attention, but rather a softer call which entreats and suggests, and then steals quietly into the imagination. The listener learns his lesson before he even realises the teacher is at work. The Bel gian dreamer's ideal is clothed in simple mysticism, never hard to understand, and with never a jarring note to break the spell of poetry which entwines itself around his master use of everyday words. And, like the true a...

BRITISH ASSOCIATION. : ~. FIRST LEAGuE. . HINDMARSH V. NORTH ADELAIDE. This match took place at Bowden. Norths -had to play with 10 men, and played the one-back game to advantage. Neither side could claim any advantage tor a consiaerame time, rowndrow even tually got through, and Wilde, failing to gather the ball, it looked almost certain that he would open the Norths' account but Ardeon got there just in time, and saved magnificently. Shortly after Ffind marsh scored through Jones. Half-time — 1.0, in favour of Hindmarsh. The second half was all in Hindmarsh's favour, and Mason added 2 goals and Jones 3 more.

LACROSSE. A GRADE. EAST TORRENS V. NORTH ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 8 June 1912

LACROSSE. A GRADE. EAST. TORRENS V. NORTH ADELAIDE. At the outset of the above match, whic] was played at Medindie, the Norths took tiie initiative, and showed a pushing de sire for scoring. T^eir forwards had more of the game than their opponents, ana were better with their sticks. East Torrens time and again attempted to take the ball 'up the -field by the backs feed ing the defences, and then on to attack. This method would have been much more successful had it not been for faulty pas sing. If the eastern team persevere with this method they will no doubt find it payable -in die end. At the beginning of the second naif Thomas, who had changed his position from point to home, showed, to advantage, and aided his side consider ably. The East Torrens' attacks and de fences must learn to get up more promptly and pass accurately, ,or the homes wifi not get possession often enough. The forward play of North Adelaide was very much better than their oponeats'. In the last quarter East Tor...

HOCKEY. MEN'S ASSOCIATION, IORESTVILLE JT. ADELAIDE A.N.A. Forestville was the scene of this match. A.N.A. attacked strongly from the bull/, and kept the ball hovering around the 1-orests goal for some time, but good work by Forests' back men, particular J. Sicilian in goal, saved the situation. Forestville then took a turn at attacking, and Cowham-by splendid individual efforts scored for the black-and-whites. The 'Natives' with a fine left wing rush made things equal, this being the outcome of a fine shot by Claude Milne. The play then developed into a see-saw- game «:p to half-time, .when;ilje .scores were 1 goal sll. From the interval Forestville were continually on the defensive, but W. Adams proved a worthy custodian in goal and kept the A.N.A-'s out for some tune until R. Herbert and C. Milne scored in quick succession for ?tEe'br6'*n-and-blue6. Fcrestville broke through the half-back lines' at- times, but ,were prevented fron scoring by Joyner add Woodrow. Final scores were:...

THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 8 June 1912

By '-??Bascfiar.' (Written Exclusively for 'The MaiL') This is the deciduous tree planting sea son, and a great many amateur gardeners and anall householders are racking their brains what to plant, but, I fear me, are troubling' little how to plant. Mr. Qulnn expressed the opinion last week that a number of trees that were dying or had died out Payneham way were doing so because of incorrect planting in the nrst place. Whether this be correct or no, there can be little doubt that the future success of a tree depends to a great ex tent on rhe care exercised when first put ting it in. This being so a few short notes on the correct way of planting a fruit tree will not be out of place. The proper distance between the trees depends very much on circumstances, and has long been a disputed point; but there are no two opinions that the ordinary cottage gardener plants his trees a great deal too close— wishing, I suppose, to grow as many kinds and as great a va riety as some friend, who pro...

VEGETABLES ALL THE YEAR ROUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 8 June 1912

VEGETABLES ALL THE YEAR ROUND. By 'Elschar.' (Written Exclusively for- 'The Mail.'} I am a great advocate of the amateur raising his own seedling plants, so that he may always have nice, stocky, fresh stuff whenever he is ready to put it out. And if this applies to cabbage, cauli flower, and onion it applies with even greater force to celery, for in the culti vation of this vegetable it is imperative that these facts toe kept constantly in remembrance, viz^ that the plants must not be checked in their growth either by injuring their roots in moving them or by neglecting to water them, or by a de ficiency in t'»* supply of manure. It is rather too late to sow seed now, but if you can get: some plants straight from a nursery ? bed do so, if you are satisfied that they have not been neglect ed and are not too 'long and spindly. The first sowing cf seed should be made in November and thence onwards to ApriL Sow the seed thmly in sandy soil, just covering it, in a shallow 'box, shading i...
