Orchard and Garden Notes THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 27 January 1912
Orchard and Garden Notes p (By E. E. Pescott, in Journal of Agriculture), THE ORCHARD. The necessity for constant surface cultivation is apparent every summer, but more so in dry seasons. Not only in iron-irrigable districts is this a necessity, but also in those districts where the trees can be watered, and more so in the latter case. In irrigated 1 orchards, the tendency of tile soil, as a result of artificial waterngs, is to set and harden. Consequently, stirring the surface must be restored to, in order to keep up a good mechanical condition of the soil, and also to pre vent loss of irrigation water by evapo ration. In non-irrigated orchards, the cultivation work Is necessary to con serve what water has entered the subsoil as a resultof the winter and spring rams. Soil crusts should not be allowed to form. Summer showers are not alone th cause of these fur cause the soil to consolidate, and any trampling, or vehicular traffic tends to harden the surface, and thus to aslow of the...

The Langwarrin Bush Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 27 January 1912
The Langwarrin Bush Fire, Thehbush fir tacriedu..tI e_..aib,.lia raced at headlong speed; It burnt a track through ti-tree thick, and bracken fern and reed. As the wind blew strong, it raced along, and soon to homesteads near, With withering heat and clouds of smoke, it made the bravest fear: But thie dauntless spirits of the bush their presence soon made felt; They fought each point of danger with many a whack and welt. They raced along from point to point, they doubled on the track, The fire was great; the heat was strong, but they kept the demon back; - Again and yet again be comes, with tongues of withering flame, - And still the workers beat him back, Oh ! shall they work in vain 1 Anon they have the flames in check, but the wind with sudden gust . Will race the flames along apace, and drive the smoke like dust. But dow the demon's spirit yields, his track he narrows in, The workers keep him to that point, they struggle on and win.
