FRUIT GROWING AT WANDIN. THE PASSING OF THE RASPBERRY SUCCESS OF MIXED ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
FRUIT C GROWINC AT WAiP DJI, THE PASSING OF THE RASPBERRY SUCCESS OF MIXED ORCHARDS. [BY OUR IHORTIOULTURAL REPORTER.] In the eighties and nineties Wandin was known to Mcelbourne folk mainly -as "the place where the.- raspberries come. from." In the picking season tile very roads of the district were odorous of the fruit as the laden carts wended their slo. way to the Lillydale railway station. For twenty years raspberry culture was the mainstay of the district, and it seemed as if there was some affinity between the fragrant red .ber ries and the patches 'of deep red soil which came to be known as "raspberry soil." COLIAPSE OF THE RASPBERRY. But that phase of 'Wandin's history is now at an end; after putting the pioneer settlers on their feet, so to speak, the raspberry has taken its departure, and orchards of mixed fruits ,have taken its lace, lThe immediate caule 'of this' change was the unpayable prices obtain able for the fruit when other districts joined in the production, and...

On Saturday the motor boat clubs' annual race 'wil be held from Williamstown to Gcelong, and on Monday the boats will compete at the local legatta. A meeting of residents was held .last week at Belmont, a muburb of Gcelong, to discuss the proposal to instal a' motor omnibus service. Mr. Ii. W.

MOTOR CAR RELIABILITY CONTEST. MELBOURNE TO SYDNEY. WHAT IT TAUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
MOTOR CAR RELIABIITY CONTEST. MELBOURNE TO SYDNEY.. WHAT IT TAUGHT. The recently-concluded motor car reliability trial from Melbourne to Sydney was a big suc cess, judged by the percentage 'of finishers out of starters; but after all, that is not .everything. The chief question fron a motoring standpoint is: Was anything-lebrnt':from the Etrenuous test? The writer, who formed one of :the overland party, is of the opinion that several valuable lessons were gained from the reliability trial, and. if manufacturers wvill only take advantage of the knowledge thus gained, considerable bene fits will accrue to motoring in this country. The most serious fault revealed was that several of the cars, fitted wNith the thermo-sypho- sys tem of cooling, failed badly, whilst othc:, in- eluding several of the prize-winning cars, had no trou7ble with tile" ame 5yvtem of water circulation. From this it appears it is lbt the system that is at fault, but its application: The trouble appeared to 'be tha...
