WOMEN CENSURED A CARDINAL'S FEAR [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

WOMEN. . CENSURED A CARDINAL'S FEAR In the course of a sermon at Bos ton, Cardinal M'Connell (according to a cable message) declared that the drama, magazines, and ballrooms all give evidence of the ever-increasing disregard on the part of women for even the rudiments of common de cency of dress, deportment, conver sation, and conduct. "We need be neither prudes nor Puritans," he continued, "to see and realise that something is passing in the heart and mind of womaij to-day which is leaving them hard and un womanly. "Year by year," added the cardi nal, "ihis transformation proceeds, and if . it continues there will be neither home, family, nor normal womanly nature left. If this, is the new woman, then God ^spare us. from any further development."

HOUSEHOLD HELPS USEFUL HINTS CARE OF FLOWERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

USEBUL . HINTS " CARE OF FLOWERS Every woman with artistic s^nse is i fond of decking her rooms with flowers. In the summer mohths many women deny themselves the pleasure of this ornamentation simply because they have not mastered the art of Keeping them fresh. It is possible to keep cut flowers from wilting for a reasonable period if a little precaution Is taken. j A small lump of charcoal placed j in each vase will help to keep speci-1 . mens nice and fresh. It is also a good plan to cut a little off the stalks each day. Another method that proves effectual is to use a little carbonate of soda. . A tea- j spoonful dissolved in each pint of water is the right proportion. A small j lump of camphor dissolved in each i vase of water will also have a good J effect. ! "Various means may be adopted to j revive flowers which are badly wilted.

EAST MELBOURNE V. CARLTON [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

EAST MELBOURNE V. QARLTON Opening day gave Carlton a poor score of 136, East beating it by 10 runs,, with seven wickets in hand. The Jolimonters were not down for big figures, however, as trundler Robinson proved to be in quite remarkable form. At one happy period of a special bowling turn he showed five wickets for 6 runs, obtained from 19 balls. When it was all over, his capital innings figures read seven for J7—wonderful recording against such a team as East in batting weather. The Joli monters totalled 212, of which Braid made 35 and Seitz 12 not out. Curtis had two wickets for 22. Carlton's second batting try was in some contrast with the first, as Warne put capital work into an unfinished innings that brought him 60. Robinson car ried on his success by gathering 23-not out, -Gardiner got 20, Russell 19, and Sutherland 12. Victory went to East Melbourne by 76 runs on the first innings.

UNIVERSITY V. ST. KILDA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

UNIVERSITY V. ST. KILDA. The game was continued w-ith University claiming only 137, while the Saints showed 115 for three wiclcets. One of the not-outs, Fitzpatrick (31), failed to add to his bag, but all the others managed to get among the runs, and the innings was ultimately closed at seven for 297. A particularly brisk time was enjoyed by Armstrong and Ainslie, who ran up 100 runs together in an hour. Ainslie retired for 52, made with finish and power. The luck was against Armstrong, who, re quiring only a single to complete his century, made a rather impulsive smack at Shugg, and was bowled. It was a pity, his innings having shown very considerable merit. Fer guson got 11, and Souter had 21 on when the closure came into operation. The prospect of St. Kilda rushing,University through and thus winning outright was soon dispelled by Stephens and M'Donald, who collected 21 and 2G. Then came a bright display by Park and O'Hara, during which the latter hit up 51 in pretty style. Park ...

SOUTH MELBOURNE V. NORTHCOTE. Showing 206 for 7 wickets as against a Northcote score of 103, South continued to bat, and reached only 219 owing to a bowling flutter by Mitchell, who dropped two wickets for nil, giving him an innings average of 6 for 80. At a second try Northcote could manage only 141, although Spicer' passed in a chanceless 43 made in capital style. Ches was 27 and Mitchell IS .filled the scoring places. Trott had 3 wickets for 19 runs, Facy 3 for 27, and Kyle 3 for 32. In a second in nings South got 2-7 for one wicket, Facy mak ing 17 and Woodbury 10 not out.

FITZROY V ESSENDON. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

FITZROY V ESSENDON. When play ceased last year Fitzroy showed 202 and Essendon 82, with a second innings beginning of 1 for 2. Resuming, the Dans proved to be in better scoring form. It was fortunate for them that M'Donald could not appear. His injury, sustained in the Inter State game, compels him to be still for the present. Wickets began to fall with a fre quency encouraging to Fitzroy, but Macartney (27)""and Shea (24) held out well, and when Russell and Steel presently came together they made it clear that the 'Roys were not to enjoy an outright win. Russell had gathered 48 when Dwyer had him leg-before. It was a first rate innings. Steel's parcel amounted to 38, and was a very creditable production. Other nice entries were made by Ryan (26 not out), Kennedy (21), Binney (18 not out), and Mahon (15). The evening board read 9 for 253—a vast improvement on a first innings total of 83. Cannon was very effec tive in the early afternoon, but was punished later, and finished with 4 f...

Carrying Capacity [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

Carrying Capacity At Koseworthy the pea crops nave been grazed off, cut for hand feeding purposes, or converted into silage j (generally of excellent quality). Hence! the record of grazing capacity is affec ed by the diverse methods. The sheep carrying capacity for the years 1908-9, 1909-10, 1910-11, and 1911-12 has been, in different months:— Total September to March^ 212 days .. 4.03 Total 12 manths .. .. .. 2.34 These figures give the peas an ap preciable direct value as well as an in direct in supplying the soil with nitro gen for the subsequent crop of wheat or hay. The feeding period is nearly double that of vetches or turnips, longer than that of kale as managed at Rose worthy, but not so long as that of rape. Month.

Peas, Feeding Value [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

Peas, Feeding Value As to whether peas will toe systemati cally cultivated in a rotation with wheat Professor Perkins evidently pre serves an open mind. " In most coun tries," he says, " both practice and theory agree that the pea crop should prepare the way for the wheat crop, and should, therefore, immediately pre cede it. Hence peas have come to be looked upon as a winter-grown fallow crop; and for the purpose they are ad mirable so long as the weeds that grow luxuriantly in their midst can be pre vented from going to seed. There ire only two ways of realising this object— early feeding off of the crop, or having recourse to far more labor and tillage than we can well afford to do. If the crop is fed off early we lose the advan tage of holding the pea crop over until other sources of feed are on, the wane. I have come to the conclusion, there fore—and I recognise that others iad come to it before me—that with us peas should not be treated as a fallow crop, but should be sown on a...

Peas [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

Peas Prof. Perkins does not consider that peas grown for seed are likely to be come a popular crop among -wheat growers, because they present too many harvesting difficulties under dry conditions of climate. For forage pur poses he gives them a high place, af firming that they are invaluable in all soils that are light or, at all events, of not more than average consistency. "Among the advantages that attach to this crop," he says, "it may be men tioned that, like vetches, although not perhaps to an equal degree, they are nitrogen collectors, and as such help to raise the natural fertility of the land on which they are grown. Another great advantage is the short growing period of peas, which for forage pur poses makes it more or less immate rial whether they are early • or late sown. Early seed^ig—April or May— results as a rule in heavy haulm growth and comparatively light pod cling; and this because the plants will come into bloom at a time -when sharp frosts are still rife. Late ...

SHEEP HINTS FOR BREEDERS Forages [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

HINTS FOR BREEDERS By J. p. Forages An article on page 48 on "Sheep onthe Farm," deals with records kept for a period of seven years at the Bose Rvorthy Agricultural College in South Australia. The excellent results shown have been rendered possible only by the special cultivation of forage crops, a practice which, according to the princi pal, Professor Perkins, should be fol lowed wherever possible. If the rain fall is sufficient different forages can fce grown on Victorian soils, and, just now, experiments are being carried on by scores of farmers to discover the plants that can be cultivated with con fidence. In this column last week re ference was made to experiences with rape, kale and turnips at Roseworthy. Comparatively little attention is given to vetches, although it is recognised that they are valuable for sheep-and also as nitrogen providers. The chief obstacle to their general cultivation is the exorbitant price charged for seed. Vetches were grown at Roseworthy in 1908-...

The Season [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

The Season m tne cmet wheat-growing districts harvesting is about over, and carting the grain to. the railway stations is proceeding briskly. Years have, passed sinco the crop was stripped under such congenial conditions. The weather has been pleasantly warm, but not too hot; there has been a comparative absence of showers and gales which were so per sistent in the spring, have held off. In numbers of localities the averages are not so high as was anticipated. At Ouyen, for example, the returns will be probably little better, than five bushels per acre, owing to the failure of the crops grown on stubble land. In other -places wind, take-all, and, to a lesser extent, rust, reduced the yields. Against these experiences there are districts which have harvested what Jnay prove to be a record crop. Potato, onion, maize and forage growers would now welcome a fall of rain, although light showers at the beginning of the week had a beneficial influence. The fruit crops would also be helped b...

The Spineless Cactus [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

The Spineless Cactus .uarge numoers 01 inquiries were re cently received in this office as to the possibility of securing seed or layers 'of spineless cactus. A new American settler in search of an irrigation block at Rochester brought with him from the United States plants for cultivation of the cactus produced by Mr Luther Burbank. He contends that it makes a valuable fodder, readily eaten by stock. At E-oseworthy College, in South Australia, Professor Perkins has been growing the plant for two years, and recently informed a gathering of farmers that it would be found very useful in dry areas, adding that all classes of live stock were fed on it in South Africa. Professor Perkins says the cactus could not be cut for about three years. If the right species is obtained, there may be pos sibilities in the plant, but unfortu nately there is no securitj' that it will not revert to the dangerous stage in which it has proved such a pest in Queensland. . At any rate, the Com monwealth has...

Upper Murray Railway [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

Upper Murray Railway ajuw construction or a railway from TaJlangatta to Cudgewa should in augurate a new era for the Upper Mur ray country. Mr Donald Mackinnon, ■who formally turned the first sod at Tallangatta, on January 17, indicated In a speech something of the possibili ties of the new line. He said the cultiv able soils in the district near Cudgewa and Corryoung rivalled the rich and famous Western district, and were capable of carrying a large population. While the Murray flats in this neigh borhood may not prove so productive, as Mr Mackinnon imagines, as the lands at Koroit, they will undoubtedly respond generously to agriculture. They contain fertile silts deposited by the river for centuries, and they en joy a reliable rainfall, averaging about 30 inches per annum, a wide diversity of crops can be safely grown, and not the least advantage will be the for ages which will be used in feeding dairy cows and fattening stock.

TDE\S For thousands of years mankind has al lowed its bread to become stale regard ing staleness as unavoidable. It now appears However, that staleness is due to exposing the bread to ordinary or varying temperatures. Dr. Katz's experiments (see Scientific Austra lian) show that if stored at 60 degree Cent, bread will keep absolutely new for 40 hours •while at 30 or 40 degrees it becomes only Vhalf stale". He recommends the keeping of newly baked bread at 50 degrees Cent. An exciting problem, day baking, may thus be solved. Phillips Ormonde & Co., patents, 17 Queen St., Melbourne.
