GROWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 March 1914
UROWLS. (BY "THE GRUMBLER.") From time to time I have occasion to draw attention to the demands of various bodies of men for increased pay or conditions of work. The tansk is not a pleasant one for me, or anyone who writes in a similar manner. But the stern fact is ever facing me that it is my duty, when I see demands being made that I deem to be impracticable, to draw attention to them. I know hard things are said of me in couse quence, but this does not deter me. " Joy was duty, and duty was law," as we read in Maud Muller. All my life has been a series of hard knocks, and a few more or less do not affect me especially when I believe I am on the right wicket. (This has no reference to a recent event in Prince's Park.) No matter what demands are made for increases in wages or salaries, the writer or speaker who has the courage to oppose the demands is immediately branded as an enemy of the working man. Is this just or equitable? Is there to be no opp6sition to the ever increasing a...

CBARISBROOK BOROUGTH. WATERWORKS TRUST. The monthly meeting of the Caris brook Waterworiks Trust was held on Monday evening. Present--the Chair man (Com. J. Landrigan), and Coms. C. Bucknall, W. Durbridge, W. Wil. liams, A. H. Dowie, and A. G. Stewart. Apologies for absence were received from Corns. Hinks and Ingram. CORRESPONDENCE. From Shire of Talbot, stating that there was an agreement with the Mary borough Trust to let a compensation supply of one sluice head of water down M'Callum's Creek from the Evansford reservoir from November to April each year. The Maryborougi Trust had been written to, as~king that water be let down at once. The Chairman considered they should do their best to assist the Talbot shire in this matter. Water- was an absolute necessity, and apart from this, the lack of it caused trouble between land owners on the creek. There was a Government in power who had as a leading plank water supply, and it was a disgrace that Cariabrook could not, through the tacti...
JOHNNY TAKES A NEW INTEREST IN SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 March 1914
JOHNNY T'AKES A NEW INTER EST IN SCHOOL. You know it was the hardest kind of work to keep Johnny in school last spring. He was in the seventh grade and, like Tommy Smith, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang, he had learned all that he needed to know, and didn't propose to waste his time with grammar, arithmetic and such. One day he played hooky. What do you suppose caused it? He followed an old turkey hen to the thicket down by the stackyard, where she had hidden away her nest. The last weeks of school it was pun ishment for that lad to go. On Satur days he was the happiest youngster 0ou ever saw. The last day was the ,ap piest, day of the school year, simply because it was the last. During the summer we read in thle paper of an order sent out by t e county superintendent, to the effect that agriculture should be taught in all the schools the ensuing year. S.L:ool opened with a new teacher, one gena inely interested in boys, one that i,,ew luite a good deal of the elem,:tary fact...

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 March 1914
POULTRY NOTES. It is surprising more poultry-keepers do not keep a we!l-filled dust bath, which is the best of all cures against insect troubles. It is little trouble or expense. Dry earth or road dust, to a depth of 9in. to 12in., in a deep box, kept in a dry, sheltered position, is all that is required. A little pow dered sulphur should be added occas sionally, whilst carbolio powder is very useful in bad cases. Some hens are so infested with insect life, through neglect of the dust bath, that it is sometimes necessary to dip them bodily in a bath made of a decootion of quassa chips and tobacco water, afterwards placing in a warm coop to dry. Such insect troubles are generally confined to fowls which cannot have their liberty and are kept in too olose quarters, as poultry running on fields will-find their dust bath under hedges and otherf piaces. Prevention is better than cure, and whether young or old, fowls kent in confinement must have a dust bath, or parasites will rapidly bre...

HARDIER INSECT PESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 March 1914
HARDIER INSECT PESTS. Something of a sensation has been produced among Califolrnian fruitgrow ers by the suggestion of the Principal of Entomology of the Washington State College, that possibly under continued spraying with, inseoticides, hardier strains of insect pests are being pro duced, which are better able to with _.and the effects of the poisons. "In oiher words," said Professor Melander, in his address, "it is possible, from a biological standpoint, that we are breeding the resistant insects. If there is such a thing as this, it is a big, big thing in the fruit world. A few years ago, we were cocksure that sulphur-lime would kill red spider eggs, would kill eggs of the green aphis, and yet I have examined I don't know how many millions of red-spider eggs this year, and failed to find them dead after being sprayed with sulphur lime. The s.me can be said of the green aphis, in a good many localities. Whether it is a biological fact that soale and other insects are becomng resi...

SPRAYING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 March 1914
SPRAYING POTATOES. The attention of potato growers is drawn to the importance of spraying the crops with~ Bordeaux mixture as a protection against potato disease. In wet seasons, spraying is of great value, while even in dry seasons, althoigh no disease may be apparent, the treatment is found to be beneficial, producing a longer period of growth and an in oreased yield. The crop should, be sprayed twice, and the first spraying should take place as soon as there is a good development of haulm, About three weeks later, the treatment should be repeated., The ordinary Bordeaux mixture, which has proved to be ve1ry effeetive, is made as follows :--Sulphate of copper, or "bluestone," 121b; quick lime, 61b; water 1001b. In purohiasing the sulphate of 'cop per, it is necessary to get the material with 98 per cent. purity and.to have a;guarantee to that effect.
