BOWLING THE BOWLING PREMIERSHIP. CANTERBURY AND ESSENDON BEATEN. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
THE BOWLING PREMIERSHIP. CANTERBURY AND ESSENDON BEATEN. The downfall of Essendon and Canterbury was the chief feature of Saturday's play. Canterbury had previou-ly an unbeaten career, and the col lapse of the Eastern suburbs team came as a surprise, for it was sustained on their own green by one of the new clubs, Malv-,rn-Caulfield; but while Canterbury f:iled, their nearest rivals, Moonee Ponds and Williamstov:n, also came to grief. Thus Canterb.rry still stands well ahead in their section. It was certainly a. feather in the cap of the Malvcrn-Caulficld team to shine out so well against Canterlbury, and MPFarlaIn, Hill and Hlardham jun., captains, from the heath club, are to be *specially congratulated. I am informed that four of the Canterbury players used bowls that they had never previously played with, and were all astray in their calculations. E·ssendon's defeat was not unexpected, for the game was played on the tricky Princes Park green, and the homne players owe their \ieto...

SINGLE-HAN DED CHAMPIONSHIP. :.A RECORD ENTRY. The popularihty .of the Single-Handed Cllampion ship tourney of Victoria is fully exemplified in the irhaguificent entry of 284 for this sea son's laurels. These figures. stand easily as a re conrd, and are 62 in excess of last year's carnival, which then formed a record. It is wonderful to note how the pastime has developed during re cent- years, for it is only a few years since the association could muster 64 players to try con clusions for tlh blue ribbon of the State. The tourney commences to-day (Saturday) at 2 o'clock, and two further rounds take place at 3.30 p.m. and: 5 o'clock. The battle w-ill be re newed on M!onday, when four rounds will be played, conmmencing at 11 a.m., and the final rotundls are to be played on Wednesday, conimene injg at 2 p.m. sharp.

HORTICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
HORTICULTURAL NOTES. Small lots of Williams pears have been coming to the Melbourne market for the past fodrTnight, mostly from Mildura and the Gouilburn Valley; and, what'is more, have .been on sale ripe. The ripening is said to hlave been ?lastened by putting the fruit in the banana rooms, where artificial heating is made use of, but the urocess is quite unobjectionable. The first lot of grapes appeared in the shops at the end of last week. They were 'Sultanas from 1vildura, small, but seedless. They were ticketed at 5d. and 6d. per lb. The flower beds at the St. Kilda public gardens are now bright with a profuslon of summer flowers, amongst which is a fine lot of Phlox Drummondi in various colors, foliage begonias, cannas, celosias, delphin iums,. pentstemons and zinnias. The roses also look well, as do some of the native trees, the most attractive or which are the red flowering gums, Eucalyptus ficixolia and E. calophylla and the white blossomc?l Grevillea HIillii.

A CENSUS OF THE WATTLE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
A CENSUS OF TH WALE 4ATLE FAMILY. A census of the genus Acacia in Austra !ia has been compiled by Mr. E. E. Pes-. cott, L.L.S., principal of.the Burnley School of HIorticilture. BIr. Pescott has made a special study of the native Acacias, other wise wattle~, and is president 'of the Wattle Day League. In his introduction the author refers to -the great need for a critical revision of the genius. In Baron von Mueller's 'work, entitled "Iconography of the Acacia and Cognate Genera," pub ]ished 25 years ago, only about one-third of the Australian Acaci, are figured, and no other writer has brought the list to com pleteness. Reference to Acacias in exist ing works show that great.conftision exists, and several so-called species appear to be only varieties or even synonyms. - Acacia Baileyana, the well-known Coota muundra Wattle, is stated .top be prone to "sport" when grown from seed. It is hardly possible to plant a "batch" of Baileyana seed and find every resultant plant true to type....

Melbourne firms are strongly advising farmers to put -their' potatoes into new sacks, and brand themniwith a stencil pencil, otherwise the erinpebdtors minay not p-ass them for export. Several farmers on Kooweerup Swamp have introduced the digging machines this season, and assert thliat they do fully six times as much as an ordinary man would db.

EXTRACTING FLOWER OILS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
EXTRAQTINC FLOWER OILS,. The preparation of the volatile oils from various her(bs and flowems was at one time a domestic art, and the stillroonn played its part in the economy of every well appointed lhomune. New, however, this work is left almost entirely to specialists, and chemical compounds enter very largely into the cheaper preparations. Althoug!i the extraction oif flower oils on a small scale is not likely to prove a lucrative pursuit, it is at least interesting, and the apparatus required is neither intricate nor expcnsive. The fundamental fact is that a stream of steam will pidk up and cariyalong'with it certain of' the oily bodies, "essential oils," found in plants, and will deposit most of its burden when cooled to water. The accompanying diagram (from an American parper) sho.vs the essential parts of the appamratus, which, with a little ini genuity, may be made at home.
