INTER-POLLINATION OF FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 27 June 1924
INTER-POLLINATION OF FRUIT TREES. Pollination varies in effectiveness in different localities and Ultder dif ferent . cou'Jifjons. Some flowers (usually very small and inconspicu ous) are self-fertilised, and some ere wind-fertilised; but generally speak ing, all plants which have conspicu ous flowers are fertilised by insect agency, . aAd in the great, majority of cases nature prevents self-fertilisa^ tion, one. of the preventives being that stamens aind stigmata do hot develop contemporaneously. . The need for cross-pollination has been more emphasised in the case of apples and pearg, but it is also ap parent in cherries and in sprite var ieties of 'both European and Japanese plums.- The grower should take steps to assiBt cross-pollinatiori. , *De C'lfluous trees of any kind should not be planted in blocks of the same var iety, but suitable varieties of the same kirtd should be planted in alter nate double rowB.

Signs. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 27 June 1924
! Signs. . JjMlOM THE TIME when, the ancient cave dweller made his mark upon a rock until this year of grace, a man has been known by his signs. .Whether he has written in rock or has scrawled his name in charcoal in public places he has expressed his character in his sign. A glance at the signs of a town will tell you more of the character of its inhabi tants than the oldest inhabitant in his most garullous mood. Our civic fathers are aware of this, and in some cases have attempted to control those daring spirits who seek to write their .names in flaming let ters wherever space .can be found to hold their hideous productions. They have not always succeeded in their pious endeavours, for the best inlentioned rules have to be inter preted by someone, and the prover bial coach and four runs readily even in these days of motors and aeroplanes. Some years ago, the Bowral Coun cal had this matter under review. It appears the public sense had been shocked by a sign of huge propor tions wh...

Scientific- Aids. QNE of the most deplorable features of our public life iB t&e failure of Parliaments to recognise the im portant part science plays in modern industry and development. The. Fe deral Bureau of Sciences has too long been the sport of party politics. With £11,000,000 surplus the Parliament should vote jsuch an allowance for scientific research as shall give some hope of a speedy solution of one or more of the problems that hamper pastoral, agricultural and horticul tural development.
MITTAGONG RESERVES V. BANKSTOWN B. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 27 June 1924
MITTAGONG RESERVES V. BANKSTOWN B. This match -was played on Prince of Wales' Birthday, and was a fast, clean exhibition of football.

Mr. W. Collins refereed in his usual effi cient manner.

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 27 June 1924
. GENERAL NEWS. Diplomatic writers emphasise two main points in the discussion be tween Mr. Ramsay Macdonald and M. Herriott. One is that M.- Herriott favors the rapid liquidation of Ger many's debt and evacuation of 'the Ruhr. Th6 other is a mutual defence pact between Britain, France, Bel gium and Italy, pending a wider pact. Mr. D. Jones, of Queensland, states that there will be a great demand in Lancashire for ratoon cotton. Bayley and Willard, by their sen sational play in the Wimbledon ten nis tournament, have achieved dis tinction. Their fearless methods were- very popular, and they received an ovation.. In the House of Commons, Mr. Hartshorn admitted that British wire less was outranged by French and German.

The first half was very even, ho score resulting on cither side. Bankstown did not take advantage of the wind or down hill. and the Mittagong team' was quite content to defend, and this they did well, their tackling being the best this season, neaily all going low for their man. In the second, fhalf Mit tagong did most of the attacking, and the first score came from a for ward rush, from which P. Armfield scored, and Vince O'Brien added the extras. Mittagong, 5 to nil.
