CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

CONSERVATORY AND POT PXjANTS Plants In pots, tubs, and boxes will still need a deal of water. Ferns and many choice specimens in full growth are considerably improved by being syringed overhead. Those in flower must not be dealt with in that way. It will disfigure the blooms and cause general disorder. In the case of a mixed lot of plants and shrubs, it will be best to damp the floor of the con servatory. This will induce a degree of humidity. It is helpful to choice subjects in pots during the warm months. * Plants not in flower or immediately | approaching that stage should be given an occasional dose of weak liquid manure. Once a week is often enough. Care must be taken to protect deli cate plants from insects. Red spiders are most to be feared. These pests are scarcely visible to the naked eye. Thoy work on the underside of the leaves and their presence is not suspected until numerous holes appear in the foliage. An examination with a glass will reveal the insects in thousands. ...

In the year 1805 Napoleon brought the great army from France for the invas on of England; but Nelson, guarding the Eng lish Channel, stopped Napoleon from crcss ing\ After many m&aths Napoleon found lie could not get to Etetglanid while Nelson was there, so he went out and around Spain, thinking that Nelson would not follow Mul but think he had gone back to France; but when Nelson kept in close pursuit bis ships had to take refuge in Cadiz, where they were strongly fortified.

INSPECTION OF ORCHARDS PROPOSED AMENDMENTS NEW SOUTH WALES SCHEME [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

INSPECTION OF ORCHARDS ..; I : PROPOSED AMENDMENTS I NEW SOUTH WALES SCHEME | Mi* Bavin, the New South vvaies Royal Commissioner on Food Supplies and Prices, is of opinion that the law relating- to the inspection and control of orchards in that State is in urgent need of amendment. "The powers possessed by inspectors with regard to the treatment of fruit pests and diseases are wholly inadequate/' he says, "because inspectors have no power to deal in any way with any pests or diseases in orchards, except fruit'fly *Mid codlin moth. Orchards may bo full of disease or pests of any other kind, and may constitute a seri ous danger to surrounding orchards, but the authorities possess no power under the present law to interfere." After pointing: out many directions in which the inspectors' powers are limited and inadequate, Mr Bavin re commends several amendments in the jlaw relating to orchards and their in spection. A very great improvement In the law, he considers, would be effected by ...

As his mother put the kettle on to boil to make tea, she said to her son, "Now, James, my lad, watch the kettle and see that it does not boil over." James said. "All right, mother; I will watch it for you." By and by, the lid of the kettle began to rattle. Now, James was a clever •boy, and he was always tryi»g to find out all he couid about things. So he said to him self, "What makes the lid of the kettle rattle?" And he sat "thinking and thinking about it till his mother came in. Then he said to her, "Mother, there is a giant in that kettle." His mother only laughed at him., and said. "O, you silly boy, how could there be a giant, in that little ket...

AUSTRALIAN" FRUIT EAST INDIAN TRADE. RESTRICTIONS RAISED. xne existence of fruit fly in part of South Wales is becoming- a hind rance to the development of the export trade.

Word has been received that restric tions against the importation of Austra lian fruit and plants into Java, Suma tra. Celebes and other I>utch colonies in the Eiast Indies are being imposed by the Administration of Netherlands India, the object being to protect these .countries against the introduction of the fruit fly and other noxious insects and plant diseases. The consul-general for the Netherlands states that the re strictions were to have come into oper tion as from January 1. Fresh fruit originating from Australia will be admitted provided certain safeguards are taken. The consulate ex...
