YARRA JUNCTION. (From Our Own Correspondent) Salvation Army.-On Saturday lanst the Salvation Army gave a musical evening in the Shire Hall. The pro g'tamme comprised sacred songs, re citations, instrumental selections, and action songs by the children, all of which, judging by the ap plause, were much appreciaste:. At the conclusion 31r Lovell, who oc cupied the chair, presented the prizes to the Sunday school children. The singing of the National Anthem con cluded a, pleasant evening. Rounders and Cricket.-The girls and boys from the Yarra. Junction State school played the Warburton school children a.t Warburton on Wedhesday, the girls at rounders and the boys at cricket.

Warburton Mutual Improvement and Debating Society T'he meeting of the above society was held on the 2nd inst. After the business of the evening had been disposed of, 7Ir Nutley gave his deferred address on the Soutlh and East Coasts of Englanid. Commenc ing with "Start Point'' in Devon shire, he explained to the audience, showing the various high lands and the low, places as he came to them on the map he had prepared. Es pecial mention was made of many of the newer ports which had been fortified and made. into naval har bours .since he left England. By a sectional map of Dover, he was enabled to show. how a naval har boih was made when the natural facilities would not permit of the same. In this case many millions of money had been expended in the making of breakwaters, large enough to enclose nearly a square mile of water. - .A portion of the casE coast of Scotland was also taken and spoken upon aas far, -as .Aberdeen, a stay being made at the Firth. of Forth to explaitn its format...

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 11 December 1914
FOR WOMEN (By "Ambrosine.") Crepes and crepons are among the favourites of the summer season. Others are cotton duvetyn, damask, casement cloth, tussore, linen, batiste, cotton epouge, and crash. The smart selec tions include pompadour crepes with tiny flowers in shower form, striped and figured crepes. The many designs afford ample opportunity for the use of two materials, and such are favored. Puffings, draperies, and flounces are all prettily expressed in this most charm ing fabric, with silk crepe in vivid tone to go with flowers, spots, or stripes. Embroidered crepe is admir able for cuffs, collars, and girdles in this relation. The colourings are both varied and exquisite, and the delicate ones are delightful. The washing gown is a dream with its pretty flounces and dainty draperies, and all are greatly improved with the bayadere sash that pulls down on the hips, by the long girdle bow hanging at sides, or by the Geisha sash that ties in a large high bow at back. -The summer g...
TOO RICH SOILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 11 December 1914
TOO RICH SOILS. In general, manures may be said to be adapted to the requirements of the soil, when they can supply any ingredient of which there is a deficiency. But an undue excess of any of the constituents may be nearly as bad as a deficiency. When farmers speak of a soil as being "too rich" they generally mean that it contains too much nitrogen. Under these conditions corn crops tend to run more to straw than to grain, and to lie down-grass becomes rank and coarse, and root crops ripen before they are fully developed. " b-se effects can be at least partially r:itigated by increas ing the propori ons of the other con stituents, especially - phosphates and potash, even though the soil ma:y r::t be-judged by ordinary standards-de ficient in these ingredients. The re quirements of the soil must therefore be gauged not wholly by the absolute quantities of the constituents, but to some extent also by the relative quan biios.

THE NATIONAL BANK. The Balanoe Sheet of the National Bank of Australasia Limited for MOth September 1914 shows that the net profit for the half year ended on that date amounted to £91,072.

ENGLISH WHEAT POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 11 December 1914
ENGLISH WHEAT POSITION. "Beerbohm," in the Liverpool "Evening Corn Trade List," of Octo ber 9, referring to the wheat-position in Great Britain, said:--' Shipments last week were fairly liberal, considering that North America and India are prac tically the only sources whence supplies are now coming, but the imports into the United Kingdom were well below the requirements notwithstanding con tinueil large deliveries of English wheat. The stocks at the ports prove, as indicated by the first returns re ceived, to be decidedly below the theo retical quantity, and amounted on Oc tober 1 to 2,600,000 quarters, against 2,100,000 quarters a month ago, and 2,400,000 quarters last year. Invisible stocks must have increased by about 600,000 quarters during the month. France is also receiving fairly large quantities of for%ign wheat, but stocks of foreign wheat in other. countries must be diminishing rapidly. The war drags along slowly, with no apparent signs of its being over for a long time,...
EFFECT ON SEED OF VARIOUS STORAGE METHODS [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 11 December 1914
EFFECT ON SEED OF VARIOUS STORAGE METHODS The-effect on the seed of storage in any of these ways is similar, but the use of the boxes is recommended, for the following reasons:--Space is econ omised; (2) the seed may be inspected and moved with convenience; (3) the seed is more easily protected from frost, insects or stock; and (4) less handling of the seed is entailed. When seed is stored in pits or heaps, the potatoes cannot be conveniently ex amined from time to time; the sprout ing cannot be regulated, and the sprou ted potatoes cannot be handled from the heaps or pits without injuring a great number of the shoots, and thereby ad versely affecting the sets. Where seed is stored in boxes, the sprouting can clusion of light, and the tubers can he carted to the paddock and planted with out damage to the sprouts.
POTATO CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 11 December 1914
POTATO CULTURE. (By- J. T. Itamsay, JPotato Expert, `'Journal- of Agriculture.") There can, be no question that the cultivation of the potato .as a field crop ranks as one of the most import ant -branches-, of agriculture.- Since its: introduction into the economy df the farm, it has steadily grown in favor throughout the world, until, to day, it occupies the position as one of the staple foods, and its cultiva tion, more particularly in Europe, is evenh.ollonwed, to provide raw material for the i'manuf:ctuzre of - flour, spirit, and.-stairch. ýiis a" staple food its importance;. is obvious. when one con siders that it is regarded- almost as an essential. . :ts comparative cheapness makes it available to all classes, and the beneficial effect which its proper cultivation has 6n the soils in which it is grown, renders it a crop of greas importance to farmers practising in districts climatically suitable for its cults?ataon. The importance of the crop, then, being palpable, it is not ...
TURF TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 11 December 1914
TURF TOPICS (By "Flemington.") Ballarat as a racing centre seems to have lost a good deal of its former glory. It is one of the places to suffei from City competition in a Turf sense. True, Ballarat still maintains two race courses, but the sport never reaches a high class, and the clubs would prob ably find it a difficult matter to pull a!ong without nmetropolitan support. The Ballarat T.C. ran a two days' meeting last week. It proved a suc cess, judged by the standard of recent years, but scarcely went near the high water mark of the good old days, when the crack gallopers of the day met to do battle at Dowling Forest. A fair honest performer in Atora won the Ballarat Cup this year. His victory under top weight clearly indi cated that the field was a weak one. Atora, though a useful old slave, is not to be compared with some former winners of the race. Atora is on the dam's side, a representative of the Nellie family. Members of this tribe do not, as a rule, last so well, though n...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 11 December 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusti ,w.") _ it's a pity that the decision to drop the regulation fixing the price of wheat was not arrived at earlier. It would have made a difference in the total of Victoria's yield. Crops that have been cut for hay or opened to stock would have been harvested if there had been the prospect of 6/6 or 7/- a bushel. And they would have given good re turns to the farmers as well as helping the State out of the difficulty a big shortage in the quantity needed en tails. The latest development of the erratic course steered in connection with this nlatte: has Drougar ulsaster to many of the wheat operators. Take one instance -an old firm, regarded as being solid in the nest sense of the term, and rated at about the £20,000 mark. The soaring of wheat as the resoult of the removal of the restriction as to price means insolvency for them, utter and complete. Operators of this class con tracted before the war to deliver large parcels of grain at prices ranging from 3...
RUSSIAN AND CHINESE SUPPLIES FOR AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 11 December 1914
RUSSIAN AND CHINESE SUP PLIES FOR AMERICA. .It would appear from the report of ,li;iton, of the New Zealand Agricultural Department, sent from San Francisco, that 1Husia and China are promoting trade in meat and pro duce with the United States. Air. Clifton- writes :-"Itsi quoted from an authoritive source that China shipped via the Fort of Tsingtan, from the. province of Shangtung 93,999-quarters of dressed beef during 1913 to Vladi vostock for the use of the Russian Army there,- and now from 2000 to 3000 cattle per month are being sh!p ped frdm Tsinanfu, via the first-named port, to Vladivostock for this army re quirement. _lt is -claimed that these cattle can be sold, live height, at lid per Jlb.. at the port of embarkation. Vladivostock is distant from San Fran cisco 4570 miles, Wellington, 5909. There may yet be meat from China via Vladivostock and Siberian butter shipped from that port to compete with food products from New Zealand. By the last mail that went from here on the ...
