POETRY. THE LOCAL PLUMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 22 June 1912
POETRY. THE LOCAL PLUMBER. (A Parody in 'Ideas' on Longfellow's 'Village Blacksmith.') Beside the leaking bathroom tin Tbe IocaI plumber stands. ~ The plumber, lazy man is he, With laige and grimy hands. And the puzzle is. the less he does. The more his bill expands. Week in, week out, from morn till night, 1 can hear each, hammer blow, I can heir him fling his tools ttootA, From my sitting room below, And he keeps on ringing the bedroom ben. So the floor is up, I know. And Tfhen Vm passing, as a rule, I look through the bathroom door, And I watch him at the same old job. Of taking up the floor. And catch him burning holes in my . Best line from Treloar. He comes each morning to the house With one— or two— small boys, And when his tools are out of reach One hears his raneous voice, Ebonting- for what he may require, And it makes one's heart rejoice. Spoiling, rejoicing, soldering-, Not where the leakage shows. Each, morning sees the job begun. Each evening— goodness knows; Something...

The meetine. in suite of a chilly snap, proved most enjoyable, and reflects the utmost credit on the officers, who -spared neither time, trouble, nor expense to make this annual fixture a huge success.

We Ehall not attempt to deal at length with the large .number of varieties of South Australian' wlieats, ftut ~inore espe cially to discuss the important points that have to be taken into consideration by the scrub farmer in selecting the varieties suitable for bis requirements. He should bear in mind that he is producing an ar ticle that has to conform with the re quirements of the wheat markets of the world, and enter into competition with similar products from other countries. He therefore takes part in the establishment of a market for Australian produce, and also shares in the responsibility of keep- ! ing up the reputation of Australia as a wheat-producing country.

THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 22 June 1912
THEQECHAEDi By 'Elschar.' -(Written Exclusively for 'The MaiL') Fruit trees, like all other plants, are continually taking materials out cf the coil, and if nothing is put back there must come a time when the tree cannot find the nourishment in the soil it needs, and a eeneral deterioration in the vigour of. the tree and the quality of its truit must take place. If the fruit trees are worth growing at all they are ?worth man uring, for the few pence that the manure ccEts per tree is repaid over and over asain by the increased size and aaality of the fruit it produces. 1 do not pro pose to go very., deeply into the whys and the wherefores, but to give as djfinite iy and as tersely as I can the mquire ii.ents of each variety of tree. One of the most important constituents_ of a food garden soil is lime, and if your ground does not contain it in sufficient quality then it must be added either in Uie form of air-slaked lim*. s»a shells, or gypsum. But one may ask, 'How am I to know whet...
