ORCHARD SPRAYING ERRORS INDICATED, SOME USEFUL HINTS, [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 30 October 1908

ORCHARD SPRAYING :i . -_i ERRORS INDICATED, SOME USEFUL HINTS, In the course of an Interesting and in structive address given recently before the Ontario (Canada) Fruit Growers' Association, Professor H. A. Surfaeo said:-"A number of erroneo.us Impres sions arc common in regard to spraying. There Is a general impression that spraying is the preventive of all loss in fruit-growing. Nothing can be more fallacious. There is a general feeling that it is necessary to spray to prevent the appearanco of. insects. I know of only one JnSect'.'for "which'-we spray to prevent its-coming; that Is the codlln moth,- "We do not spray to prevent the coming of insects, although wo do spray when they are present to destroy them1 and prevent loss by their attacks. If I had an orchard free from insects, I should not spray with anything, so far as insect's aro concerncd, excepting that _j_I .would spray at tho proper time and and with the proper material for tho I codlln moth.

STANDARD TIME FOR THE WORLD. Olio of the greatest and most diffi cult problems thnt science has over id to solve for the world of affairs is that of transmitting standard time .from some fixed point to all places on the earth.

A AVONDER OF SUJiOERY. Dr. Adolf Posiicr, of Berlin Univer sity, somo months .ugo startled tlio ' scientific world bj' staling that surgery hud advanced to a "point which made it possible to transfer tho head of one humau being to tho neck of another. Many men of scionce agreed that tho operation was -theoretically possible, but pointed out that nobody Jiud suc ceeded in performing it on any -of the higher animals. Until such time-as a vivisectiouist should succeed in graft ing a living head 011 a living boijy without killing tho grafted animal science could not considor tho operation seriously. .

FARM AND FIELD Moulding Up Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 6 November 1908

FARM AND FIELD Moulding Up Potatoes. The object of moulding up growing potatoes Is to increase tY.6 warmth .\nd aeration of the soil-both very impor-' tant. It also affords an Opportunity to f.estroy the weeds, and it Increases tho root'growth of the plant, thus assisting the development of the tubers. It has been proved that the temperature of the soil, especially of cold heavy soils, Is substantially raised. The yield of pota toes Is generally also Increased, but not . always. This dopends on t!ie character of the soil,* depth at which the seed is . planted, and the time of the op.ratlon. I Deep moulding'prevents, to some extent, the loss caused by disease. It is said, however, that while potatoes on moist heavy soils respond gratefully for the moulding up, plants on light, sandy sol's and in dry climates are not so favorably affected, and a. decrease of the crop has "been noticed. Similarly, when the seed Is put in deep, It has been found to work .unfavorably, while on the other ...
