DOWNY MILDEW. On Cabbage and Cauliflower Seedlings. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 24 February 1915
DOWNY MILDEW. On Cabbage and Cauliflower Seedlings, Last season complaints were received that a disease known as 'Downy Mil dew' had done damage among cabbage and cauliflower seedlings, and a few suggestions were made by the oincers of tho Biological Branch that are worth ? repeating at the present time. Ihe conditions that caused this fungus disease n$y not recur, of course, and it may be odvrral seasons before If m-t-i a reappearanco, but the spores (or seeds) of the fungus hive great resist ance to unfavorable conditions, and in any season a spell of moist, humid wea ther may allow it to develop again to spread rapidly. The disease is due to a fungus that produces 'Downy Mildew' or whitish mould on many cruciferous plants, and 'dampingoff' in the seed-beds. The' fungus produces two forms of spores (or seods), viz. (1) large thin-walled spores that can bo borne in the air in great numbers, and (2) thick-walled resting spores. The first spread the divensc at once, quickly infecting...
The Lloyd Copper Co. THE FINANCIAL POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 24 February 1915
The Lloyd Copper Co. THE FINANCIAL PO8ITION. Advices reoeived from London diB olose some interesting faots regarding the Lloyd Copper Company, whioh was last week granted one month's exemption ov. thoir Burrnga mine. At a meeting of the company in Lon don it was stated that the sharehold ers' response to the call to subsorih'o £20,000 first mortgage debentures wns very small. Apart from the con tributions of tho directors, it only amounted to £500. To enable the mine to continue operations as long as it did, the board had advanced the company £5000. The financial posi tion at the present time was that they were something under £15,000 in debt. That was their total lia bility, so that, while conditions were most favorable in relation to the war and the prioe of ooppar, it would be necessary to deal with tbe finances of tbe company before they could restart work at tbe mine. The general man ager was of opinion that, provided tbe milling plant was re-organised and the developments unde...

THE SLUSHY YARD. And How to Improve It. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 24 February 1915
THE SLTJBHT YABD.' And How to Improve It. What to do with the poultry yard thuf is tranSpled into slush in. every spell of wet weather, is a question that presents itself to many poultry-keepers. It was put, before the Poultry Expert by a recent correspondent, and the reply will probably interest a number of. people. ? :? ; ?_???'?'' ??_''. If the yards are level and oaiy get into a slushy condition in wet weather, a coating of ashes or' sand -will be found an improvement,' but1 If 'the' trouble is ?the result- of a low-lying position and of bad drainage nothing will do^nrneh good except to permanently raise 'the 'level. For this purpose neither sand nor ashes airo of much use, for the water will continue' to lie in the holes and. will form ' cesspools that may become ' ?breeding 'ground* /for disease. Soil' must be Used, and it must be used io as to enable it to become' incorporated with the old surface; or it will, simply cake and peel off. The ' old sortaoe should be loosened -an...
VERACITY OF BERLIN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 24 February 1915
VEEAOITY OF BERLIN NEWS. A conference between the editors of the leading German papers and the rep resentatives of the general staff and the Foreign Oflice takes place at 10 every morning, in tho Roichs.tag build ing. At these gatherings the spokesman of the military authorities gives the journalists instructions as to the tone which thev must adoDt towards the ovents of the war. It often happens that the Foreign Oflice representative feels compelled to enter a protest against these instructions. Thus, on one occasion the Foreign Oflice deputy ex pressed tho wish -that the press should cease the publication of the highly colored descriptions of alleged atrocities committed by the Russians, Belgians and French. 'Our press,' he said, 'overdoes tho horrors. In most coses these stories of tho shooting of harm less persons and murders of women scorn to be found on the ceilings of the Berlin editorial rooms.

RAPIDITY OF THOUGHT IN SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 24 February 1915
IIAl'IWTY OK- THOUGHT IN 8LKEP. We can dream more in a minute than we can relate in in hour, Dr. Bernard' Hollander stated at a meeting of the Cat ford Natural History Society. It was, lie explained, because of tho great rapid ity of thought in sleep that wo could not ulways recollect our imams. The dreams wo remembered were mostly those which occurred during the periud when we were just awakening, and that was why our Dreams were usually untinisned. iJiucr enecs were observed between one person and another in ri'U'tml to tho amount of sleep required. .Some men never slept more than five hours: others required seven hours, thu overage for vigorous adults; and some slept for nine hours or more. The chief rule laid down by Dr. Hollander for those desirous of sound and refreshing sleep nas to practice go ing to bed at a definito hour every night, und to get up at a definite time every niorning. Moreover, they should get up immediately on waking. Another rule was to train oneself to fal...

ADRIFT IN SYDNEY. ADVENTUROUS COUNTRY LADS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 27 February 1915
ADRIFT IN 8YDNEY. ADVENTUROU8 COUNTRY LADS. , (By. 'V.J.') Tlie adventurous spirit in bays be tween the ages of 12 and 16 yaars is, at times, carried to daring extremes. When a paragraph appears in one of our d»ily papers: 'Lad, aged 14 (or thereabouts), missing from home, any information as to his welfare gladly received, etc,' ono feels a pang of pity for the distracted rolativos who, in this nay, appeal to tho public for news of their missing one. Recently a case of this kind was brought before, the notice, of an officer of tho Prisoners' Aid Association, Phillip Street, Byducy. Two lads, about 16 years of ago, but much younger in ap pearance, had been arrested and chargod before tho Children's Court with having no lawful visible means of support. The boys wore knickerbockers and did not appear to be more than 12. Bo (.uuso of their tender use tho magistrate was loth to send the homeless ones to gaol. And, sad to say, in this great city of Sydney, there is no other pro vision mad...

IS IT INEVITABLE? 'It is computed that twenty minions of men are at death grips without mak ing mi appreciable change in tho position from week to week. There is, of course, un invisible change in progress. The sinews nf war aro diminishing and the staying power of all parties slowly giving out. The money cost is from £8,000,000 to £10,1)00,000 a week. The wastage in the armies, in killed, wounded and miss ing, is about 125,000 every seven days, or a toll of nearly 20,000 u day.

FOR WOMAN'S EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 27 February 1915
OTFOR WOMN'8 EYE. (Bjr 'Blue Bird.') The long tunic which is becoming so popular gives an effect of fullness and freedom which is prophetic of actual freedom to come. For the present, skirts, that confine the limbs below the full tunic and even narrower than be fore, and femininity must go hobbled by Fashion 'a decree till tho full tunic evolve into a revival of fuller skirts. The stylish costume iu our illustration is of taffeta ? the long tunic is iimshed at the Bide gore with buttons. The evening dress of to-day is in de mand for more than one occasion, and must meet other cases than that of the ball room or reception hall, and for that reason it is sometimes rather difficult to distinguish between it and the tea gown, which is, in reality, a very near relation. Tho evening wrap or coat is another closely related garment, and indeed, at times, so elaborate are all three, and so alike in design and material that it takes an expert to say which is which. The more substantial the ma...

SKAT OP GOVERNMENT. 'Mr. Hughes 's humorous freak of transferring tho Federal offices to Sydney has created apprehension as well as amusement. Iu Victoria it is regarded as a warning that the seat of Government is only temporarily located there. In Sydney the hope has been revived that the permanent seat of government will not be at Canberra, but that by an evasion or amendment of the Constitution Syduoy in this respect will ore long be permitted to come into her own.' — Bris- bane 'Daily Miiil.'

REMARKABLE EFFECTS. 'Tho effect of the war in many ways was remarkable. Before it, Lloyd George was the most intensely-detested man in England, if ono was to judge public feeling by the tone of the London press.

CHASED ON HIGH SEAS. BRITISH CAPTAIN'S RUSE. THE KARLSRUHE AGAIN. The old days when pirates roved the high seas in search of prey and plunder are vivid ly recalled in these limes by such incidents as that which attended the capture of a Itritish steamer by the German cruiser Karls ruhe.
