THE FARM HANDLING SOIL FOR PRODUCTION. EXTENT OF PLANT-ROOT SYSTEMS AND THEIR GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
THE FARM -------4- HANDLING SOIL FOR PRODUC-' TION. EXTENT OF PLANT-ROOT SYS TEMS AND THEIR GROWTH. If one pulls up a wheat plant as it is approaching maturity he finds at tached to the crown of the plant a number of roots of various sizes only a few inches in length. Unless he is a skilled botanist, he concludes that these are all the roots the plant has, and that through these the plant derives its soil nourishment. Accord ingly he comes to the conclusion that wheat is a shallow-rooted plant. TRUNK LINES, NOT FEEDING ROOTLETS. These roots, however, furnish the plant no part of its nourishment; they are merely the trunk lines which receive the plant nourishment from the feeding rootlets and take it to the growing tissues of the plants; they are merely carriers, not gather ers, of plant food. The feeding root lets, by means of which the plant gathers its soil nourishment, were broken off and left in the soil when the plant was lifted. Since the plant derives its nourishment from the...

"Well, said he, "I once entered a restaurant where they weigh you be fore eating, and then after eating, and then charge yod by weight. I had a good feed, 'and was charged ten shillings. The next time I went I took in my pockets bricks, weights and such-like. I was weighed, and then went upstairs and had a ban quet three times as big as the last. I went down and was weighed again but they couldn't make it out." He paused. "Couldn't make what out?" the club members asked.. "Why," answered the quiet'man, "they owed me four and tuppence." In explaining his reason for turn ing farmer, Sir Rider Haggard, the great novelist, says :-"There came a time when I was not satisfied with my output of fictional and imagina tive matter, when I thought I would like to do something practical in the world, something that would affect those who followed." He therefore resolved to dev...

I'M DREAMING OF THE MEADOWS. Our Great Ballad, Specially Written for us by Our Own Ballad 'Writer, William F. Kirk. I'm sitting in the city, the city far away, The landlord is expected soon, he came twice yesterday. (1) The grocer's getting sullen, (2) the butcher swears in German, (3) The outlook of it all, dear he rt, I dread for to determine. If I could be a child again, a child on mother's knee, And get another leathering, how happy I would be ! (4) This city life is no account, I long to be a jay, I'm dreaming of them meadows and those new-mown hay. (5) CHORUS: I'm dreaming of them meadows where I walked with childish feet, (6) I'm dreaming of those new-mown hay, It used to smell so sweet. Dear father used to snore at night, but almost every day You could find him in them meadows midst those new-mown hay. So that there may be no doubt in the minds of our readers as to the meaning of this beautiful poem, we append some notes. (1) He came for the rent probabll, although the poet ...

BEACH BATHING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
BEACH BATHING. The question of beach bathing came before the council at Tues day's meeting, when a draft code of regulations was submitted by the town clerk for consideration. The safe positions of bathing were set forth, and places set apart for child ren, ladies, and gentlemen -respec tively, the principal object being safety and decency, whilst in the area outside of the prescribed mixed bathing was not disallowed. Cr H. Thompson was of opinion that surf bathing should be encour aged, as many came to Queenscliff for that special purpose. Cr Arkins drew attention to the cost "of providing the baths, and now for a paltry threepence people bathed on the beach. Cr Brinsmead considered if bathing on the beaches was to be regulated, it should be gone into thoroughly, and bathing sheds provided. The children should not be kept apart from parents. He favored a re stricted area, though people should not be restricted too much, as they came for freedom. Cr Patching thought the draft regula...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
With the discontinuance of the civilian training troops in Queens cliff there disappears the Y.M.C.A. tent and its work. Many hut dreds of young men have found much pleasure and profit in the provision made for them by the association. Apart from .reading provided them, facilities were made for ,correspondence, and it -would be initeresting to know the nmimber of letters written within the tent to friends. Whilst here Mr Bradley, the secretary, has made himself popular with troops and towns people, principally by reason of his efforts to make the stay in camp of the young soldiers as pleasurable as possible. For the many favors extended by townsfolk to the troops Mr Bradley returns his thanks. There will be no complaint this season regarding water in the ladies' baths.

A NEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. The Fight for Commercial Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
A NEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. The Fight for Commercial Supremacy. Mr. T. F. Millard's study of the Far East, contained in his book, "America and the Far Eastern Ques tion," recently published in New York is dominated by two opposite notes, pessimism and a story of progress. He regartls the situation that has arisen since the close of the Russian war with alarm; the Japanese commercial policy in Manchuria is creating a situation which may re suit in war between Japan and America ,; he has nothing but criti cism for the existing state of affairs in Korea; he is convinced that Ja pan aims at the domination of China. And yet, despite all this, he has to tell of world advance. A new Asia has arisen, an Asia growing daily more and more Conscious of her own strength. MUKDEN. Take, for example, his description of Mukden. Ten years. ago few white men knew the ancient capital of the Manchu kings. In 1900 white refugees were tortured to death in its central square amid indescribable shame and ago...
THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAN FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEUIAN FARMER. --- -? -- - Most Contented Individual in the World. Writing on "The Hungarian Gen 'teman Farmer," in the " Windsor," Baroness Orczy says: "He is the most contented indivi dual in the world, in spite of the fact, or because he knows absolutely nothing of what is going on around him. He does lust read his news paper which arrives daily from Bu da-Pesth, and has vague ideas that all austrians are thieves and scoun drels, and that therefore a enien with Austria is necessarily fatal to Hungary; but, as a matter of fact, the political situation of his country does not interest him in the least; it does not afiect the richness of his wheat or the weight of his maize heads. "'A keen sportsman, he is unham pered by' any game laws. In Hun gary no one is allowed to car~y a gun unless he owns so much land, and the owner of land-and therefore of g?rp-naturally makes his own laws for its preservation. "His chief characteristic is hospi tatity, almost barbaric in i...

Precise With a e?euegac.? A colonel ib' a French arxiy who had a great: eye foi neatness, but not much of an eat for zhusic, took occasion one day to compliment his bandmaster on the appearance of hig men.
