TIMBER-· VERSUS' MUTTOH. In a vaery comprehensive article on the need for State forestry in England, a writer in the 'Gardqners' Chronicle" says: "'Suiposing tlhat for our State forests wie were to take the poorer class of grazing and agricultural land, what wouId be the resuit ? To put it tersely, 50 cubic feet of timber, instead of 15 lb. of mutton per acre ! An acre under grazing would pro duce on an average 15 lb. of mutton (evi dence collected by Coast Ero.sion Commit tee), and an acre under forest will yield 50 cubic feet of timber as a safe and ordi nary average. There are forests whiei yield up to 150 and 200 cubic feet in Ccn tral Europe, dnd 700 cubic feet has been frequently realiscd with the greater sun powe f more southern lands. When we take w breeding trees for the quick pro duction of timber some considerable fur ther increase may be looked for. Consider ing the rapid growth of larch, and the much more rapid growth of Douglas fir, it is evidcent that 50 cubic feet of...

GARDENING NOTES. THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
DARDENIINC NOTES, STH FLOWER GARDEN. Cut down Dahlias as soon as they have done flowering, so that ~tlhy may jroduce another crop of bloomsin ithe autumn. If recently planted Dahlias arc making a lot of shoots, reduce tlhem to three or fouf, and tie these, to stakes. A good way to sup porlt Sweet Peas, eitlher in clumiis or in rows, is by means of stakes and string. A feirw stakes will suffice, if they are strong enough, and tlhey can be so placed as to be hidden by the foliage. String appears to suit SweetPeas better than any other sup oorting material; it is quite inconspicuous, and can be threaded in and out so as to inake the plants support each other. A lhink of sewing twine is very good for this. kind of work; open it carefully out, ;and wind on a piece of board.. BUDDING nROSES.

THE TREATMENT OF SILKWORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
THE TREATMENT OF SILKLWORMS. The Silk Culture Society of .New Southli WValcs supplies the following instrt.ctona for beginners: "h'irst see wlhat amount of mulberry leaf is available; if only one tree, a few bun d'ed worms may be. reared; if several trees, thousands of worms; 2(1 to 25 lb. of leaves will produce 1 lb. of cocoons. A tree three years old will yield 12 lb. to 20 lb. of leaves and feed 100 to 200 worms. Silk worms will cat any mtdberry leaves, but for producing good cocoons the 'vhilte mul berry (M[orus Alba) is best. "It is important to secure good graine (eggs. of silk moth) of the best breed, from healthy worms that spin large cocoons; the best breed is the Bombyx 3iorn (the E:nropean annual worm). Graine is sold by the ounce; about 40,000 eggs go to an ounce. It should be kept in a cold place till the time for hatching, when the trees are in leaf. "W'hen the worms- come out they need the greatest care and attention; they should not' be kept where it is hot during th...

THE VAHILLA ORCHID, . Vanilla haslong been used as 4 flavoring agent.. Historians have :stated that it was used by Mexicans as an ingredient in choco late even befdre America was discovered by the Spaniards. Early in the sixteenth century, probably before the introduction o, tobacco, .it was used in Europe as a perfume. There are about twenty speciesi widely dispersed throughout the tropics ol the whole world. Although the orchid is of little account as far as its flowers are concerned, .it has a~n attractive feature in the fruit, or pods, as they are more fre quently called. Anyone .having a house where a fairly high temperature and con siderable moistuie cani be maiantained will find no difficulty with its cultivation.

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
POULTRY NOTES. BY HOTSPUR. Mrs.- lacGregor, Peterleigh, Essendon, has imported a trio of Buff Orpingtons from England, which have just arrived by the Argyllshire. Their relations have just won prizes at the Crystal Palace, and all leading shows in England. It is safe to state that at no place in Victoria has poultry farming made such rapid progress during the past year as in Ccntral Gippsland (writes our Trafalgar correspondent). This is very gratifying, a, this advancement has not been a boom, but a widespread recognition of the pro fits of poultry farming when conducted on practical, business-like methods. A poul try. society was formed at Trafalgar, with Mr. Jas. 3Mitchell as president, and Mr. K. Foreman as secretary. A show was held, which was a splendid success. The society now has a membership or some hun dreds. -No more striking instance of this wonderful progress can be seen than by the returns from the Trafalgar butter' fac tory, winch receives and sells the eggs.

The Australian (inmnte iss greatly suited 'Wells as far as health is concerned, but in a boxing sense it has. been too good to him, and he feels that he cannot keep his weight down to the light weight limit and do justice to Ifimself.

COVERNMENT POULTRY LEGCTURES. ;u, AN . EXPERT'S VIEWS, -, BY HOTSPUR. . -Recently we qtfcoted a report from a Gippsland paper, which purported to.give the views of ZMr. A. V. D. Rintoul on poultry keeping. The material was such as to cause some concern in poultry breeding circles, and we invited departmental infor mation. .On- the face of the report, it seemed that the new Government Expert was behind. the times in furnishing advice to those' who attended the. lecfure, and it also appeared from the report tlhat he was actually damaging the industry b1y quoting figures which showed the reverse side of poultry keeping.. .At the: time- we-.hesi tated from criticising the report, fearing that the .lecturer had been misunder4tood by our Gippsland 'contemporary.' In any case such a damaging report -could -not be passed unnoticed, by- ''The Leader," which has been so prominent a factor in building up -the poultry ;in~istry.

In ydnley considerable interest was created in the match between "IHerb" ("Kid") M'Coy, of Victoria, and "Matt" Wells. the English light weight, which took place at the Stadium on Saturday night, but the feeling was intensified and bitterness engcndered through an incident Swhich occurred at the weighing in at noon. The condlition was that the boxers should mnake 9.10 or forfeit £200. M'Coy was f lb. under that weirht, but when Wells got on the seale he went over it. Tle ofllicial weigher said a quarter of a potind: but Wells's mnaniager, D. Levy, said that it was only 2 oz. M'Coy's party at once claimed forfeit; but Wclls's manager protested that it was unsportsmanlike to claim £100 an ounce, that being his estimate of the overweight.
