WHITE ANTS IN ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 27 June 1924

WHITE ANTS IN ORCHARD. It localities where white ants are prevalent it is advisable to cultivate a crop before planting fruit trees. In any case it is a good plan to do that fir&; but if it is not possible the land should be nlouched early, so that tht soil', .^exposed to weather influences for some time before plant ing is carried out. The land should be thoroughly cleared, of course, all roots being run to a proper depth, and aU pieces of timber removed or burnt. In lo- j calities where white ants are trouble- 1 some, stakes should not be used to support trees unless such stakes have first been treated with an effective white ant exterminating dressing; nor should use be made of mulches, such as bush scrapings, grass, etc. Thor ough cultivation helps to keep white ants in check.

SNOWY RIVER. PRIVATE ENTERPRISE TO INSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 27 June 1924

SNOWY RIVER. PRIVATE ENTERPRISE TO INSPECT. The Twofold Bay Development League is not letting matters rest in connection with the Snowy River hydro-electric scheme. When the Premier (Sir George Fuller) was asked what the State Ministry intended to do about it in view of the exceedingly favorable re port of Mr. Corlin, till recently the State's chief electrical engineer, he replied that it was too big a thing Cor the State to undertake. The league's view, as expressed by the president (Mr. J. R. Logan), is that if a proposal is good it cannot be too big, while if it is unsound it cannot be too small. Considering that the Snowy River enterprise is very good indeed, it thinks that a small corner of the State might un dertake what the Premier thinks too big for the whole. Arrangements are being made for Mr. H. T. Kirby, representing the firm of Armstrong, Whitworth, to inspect and report upon the Snowy River scheme, with special reference to the Paupong site, where, according to Mr. Cor...

To celebrate the unique event, his football colleagues subscribed I amongst themselves and, inviting him to a reception, presented him withj a loving cup, _ j Being taken by surprise he found it more difficult to make a suitable reply than to score goals. As he gazed at the cup visions of other cups confused his mind. 'Er, gentlemen,' he managed to stammer at last, 'er — I am — er — much obliged, and — er — I thank you.' Then a puzzled frown came into his face as he con tinued: 'Er — do I — er — have to win it three times to win it right out.'

SPRING CHICKENS. WILL IT PAY TO REAR THE COCKERELS? [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 27 June 1924

SPRING CHICKENS. j WILL IT PAY TO REAR THE COCKERELS? The lesson of last spring should not be lost upon farmers who opine thBt it does not pay to rear the cockerels, writes the Poultry Expert of the Department of Agriculture in current notes. Those who last spring were making 7s. 6d. to 10s. 6d. per pair for chickens of eight, to ten weeks old are not likely to throw their cockerels away on that plea; but others who did not participate in these prices may keep to their old idea and dispose of the cockerel chickens, treating them as of no value. Many thousands ' of pounds were lost to poultry farmers last year in this way, and the public were deprived of a most valuable article of food for which they were willing to— and did — pay fancy prices. The recent farm competition of fered an exceptional opportunity for seeing how this policy had effected the income on some farms, continues the writer. In some cases the cock erel portion of the hatching had been literally thrown away, while i...

THE REAL CAUSE DR. SIR JAMES BARRETT BLAMES V.D. FOR MANY ?DEATHS. Noteworthy evidence concerning ramifications and dangers of venereal disease was given on Saturday by Sir James Barrett, called as a witness before the Royal Commission on Na tional Insurance. He said the did ense was the greatest nienace to Aus tralia s national health, and that u it could be eliminated most of the trou bles of mankind would disappear. 'The ramifications of the disease are enormous,' Sir James said, 'and 30' per cent, of the deaths in Mel bourne Hospital are due, directly or indirectly, to it. A broken leg might be the direct cause of death, but sy philus so weakens the constitution that it is the real cause of death. 'Ten per cent, of the expectant mothers in the Melbourne Women's Hospital are found to be infected with venereal disease.' 'I regard the baby bonus as about the worst waste of public money I htvvc ever known,' said Sir James, who appeared before the Commission to give evidence'Ori beha...

THE ISHMAEL OF NUMBRS. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 27 June 1924

THE ISHMAEL OF NUMBRS. In the Hebrew Kabbalah, every number carried a mystical signifi cance. Just as seven was the most potent number, in all religious cere inoJiial; ten the perfect number; and twelve the root number used in all1 measurements of the New Jerusa lem; so thirteen was the Ishmael of numbers, the one driven ioith into the wilderness,. because it symbolised -the imperfect nature of man, the flaw in everything which God has made, to borrow the declaration of Emer son. In the new dispensation, thirteen was associated with the traitor, Judas Iscai'iot,- and thus doVn the long halls of .time the religious na ture of man has unconsciously linked the fatal qualities of Judas with the perfectly ino'c'iious numbed thirteen, still dreaded adr feared, in spite of societies holding annual dinners, with the fatal number at table, and living to tell the tale twelve months later. Mariners of old curved the figure of Venus on the prow of their ves sels; wore blue garments because that...
