If all the Sowers were the same color the bee would not know which flower it had been to. The stalk is very thin. It is thin because it wants to bend over. There are five sepals, and five petals.

The Rx\in. Bt Hvlda Grav, Grade VI. We had some very heavy rain on Saturday night and all day Sunday. It was very much needed, and I am sure all the people were elad of it, considering we have had such a drought. Our garden beds and plots at school were beginning to look dry and the nowers wimerea up, dub cne rain nas made them look quite fresh again. There were worm holes and marks all over the ground.

Main Roads Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912

Main Roads Bill. t The clamant attitude of the Country party in the Legislative Assembly indicates clearly that political capital is to be made out of any undue delay on the part of the Government in un folding its national roads and outer ports proposals. Neither of these schemes is quite eo far advanced as tha Government, would wish, but they both figure prominently on its ses sional programme, and no objection can therefore be raised to the action of country members in demanding for them early enactment. Pending thou ? completion, it is understood that members who are anxious to see country interests provided for will be afforded an opportunity of consider ing bills for the furtherance of closer settlement and irrigation, which will make the compulsory purchase pro vision effective and give the Water Coinmision power to acquire land.

THE BRITISH EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912

The British Empire. By O.M.S., Grade VIII. As it is known by most people that the sun never sets on the British Empire, and that it is the largest one ever known of, and is likely to remain so as long as its subjects do not forget their positions as citizens, let us see the reason for the said greatness. We have no reason to be prond of our greatness. Look at some of the past nations and you will see that as soon as they became proud their nation fell away. It also will be the same with us if we become prond and lazy. But, at the same time, it is not to be thought that we should not be proud of it in a certain sense. Pride can be placed in two columns, false, boastful pride, and humble pride. We can be proud and yet our pride may be humble. May our pride be humble, so that we may set a good example to the younger generations and also to other cations.

CROPS. Their Plant-Food Requirements. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912

CROP8. Their Plant-Food Requirements. The application of suitable fertili sers is the most important lever for increasing the productive capacity of our arable and grass lands. This is a fact accepted now as an agricultural axiom and no longer requires to be argued or demonstrated; it is only the details that require to be dis cussed and investigated. At the same time, one has to ad mit that tne outlay mvoivea is oiten a heavy item, including, besides the cost of the fertilisers, the expenses for transport, and application, and it therefore behoves every farmer to consider carefully what fertilising substances under the circumstances of the season he may require, be cause 'too much' may upset the cash result of his operations just as much as 'too little.' He must bear in mind the different nature of the crops cul tivated, ana act upon it m supplying fertilisers.

Electricity is, undoubtedly, ahead of all other methods of lisrhting, and the Lister Automatic Generating- Plant is the latest invention in the electrical engi neering world. The Lister Lighting Plant has solved the question of small installa tions for electric lighting. « Hitherto electric lighting, in a small way, has had to be done either by running the plant as long as lights were needed, or by charging up accu mulator batteries during the day for use at night. ; ' In one case, running the plant whilst lights are required mean3 at tention at starting and stopping, and this is particularly annoying, owing to the fact that once the plant is...
