AUSTRALIAN WINES BRITISH EXPERTS' OPINIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

AUSTRALIAN WINES BRITISH EXPERTS' OPINIONS. Experts who judged the colonial wines at the recent Brewers' Exhibi tion, London, report as follows:—"The light white wines were well made and of good style, . -and * they would be suitable for the British market if they could be shipped at a price to compete with the light Euro pean wines. There were good ex hibits in the red full-bodied class, al- j though many of the exhibits were somewhat younger than those shown on former occasiQns. The lighter styles of red were mostly well select ed, and some of the sparkling wines were of undoubted merit and of marked quality," although the prices were too high to command a market here. The brandies were promising and of good style, and they should improve with age. The colonial wines bottled here compared favorably with those imported in bottle."

VINES AND WINES WINE TRADE TERMS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

WINE TRADE TERMS INTERNATIONAL CONPETtuiwoti In the annual report of the VitlcuU tural Society of Victoria reference ig made to an International conference held at Washington. It was resolved by the conference that such widely reoognised trade terms as "Cognac" "Chablis," "Hock," "Champagne" "Claret," "kurgundy," "Sherry'" "Port," "Madeira," etc., should no longer be applicable to similar products originating anywhere outside of the localities proper, whence such desig. nations had originally been derived. In the event of the Commonwealth joining the union it will be necessary (states the report) for growers and those engaged in the Australian wine trade to find substitutes for the terms specified above and now in general use. The penalties attached to the infringement of the law adopted by the convention, are severe, and pro vide for the seizure of the goods either in the country of importation or in the place where the illegal affixing of the mark or name has been made, such seizu...

TREATMENT OF VINES ESSENTIAL SUMMER WORK [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

TREATMENT OF VINES ESSENTIAL SUMMER WORK t An expert states that in the case o? vines that have been spurred back properly at the winter pruning—that is, each spur pruned to one, two, or more eyes according to the vigor of the canes and the variety of grapes —each bud should have put forth one or more shoots. Where more than one shoot occurs, the weakest should be rubbed off, leaving one shoot only at each node. If the vine is not a .vigorous grower, one shoot may be sufficient to leavo on each spur. On the other hand, where growth is rampant, two or more shoots may be allowed to proceed from the spurs. Overcrowding is to be avoided by en tirely suppressing some of the inter mediary shoots' where the long spur or cazanave method is adopted. It often happens that amateurs and i inexperienced growers leave many more bunches on the vine than it can properly support, especially in the case of young vines of three years old, and the consequence is that the bearing period, and even the li...

WINE FROM CHERRIES METHOD OF MANUFACTURE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

WINE FROM CHERRIES METHOD OF MANUFACTURE Professor Blunno, the New South Wales Government Viticulturist, gives the following recip-2 for cherry wine: —Remove th~v stalks of the cherries and make a'pnlp of the fruit without breaking the scones, woi-vitife" the pulp so as to free it entirely from the stones. The pulp should then be passed through a sieve. To the pulp of every 251b. of fruit add 51b. of sugar, together with 5oz. of cream of tartar and one gallon of water. Stir the whole and make a homogeneous fluid. Place the vessel in a room where the temperature is from 65 to 70 degrees Fah., and cover same with a cloth. After about 24 hours the liquid will begin to. ferment. "When fermentation has subsided (which can be judged by the cessation of bubbling). th§ liquid should be sep arated from .the pulp, and the formei* (which is now wine) is stored away in a cask and- kept in a cool place. The storage vessel should be kept filled, either by adding , more of the cherry wine or else ...

THE BEEKEEPER THE HONEY SEASON UNCAPPING COMES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

THE ' HONEY SEASON ■ v UNCAPPING GOMBS. i\ir jj\ R. Beuhne, the Government Bee Expert, states that before honey can be extracted from the combs of the modern frame hive, the wax caps with which the bees have-covered the cells of honey have to be removed. This is done by means of what is known as an uncapping, or honey, knife—a stout knife 8in. to 12in. in length, with two cutting edges, bev elled from one side, and an cfff-set handle. Tq uncap. quickly and with out damaging the; combs, the honey knife should be as sharp as a razor, and must be kept in hot water so that it wiliv easily pass the comb surface on one side and the sheet of cappings on the other. Two. knives may be1 used with advantage, so that while | the operator is working with one, the other is getting hot for the next comb. There are several different kriife-heaters ; one is worked by ~a small lamp. When a cappings1 melter is used, a separate knife-heater is not required, the knives being hung into the hot water of t...

EMPIRE DAY. Kacftel M. Gooch, who lives at "Rock lands," Glenhope, via Mia Mia, -writes:— Dear Aunt Connie,-^-1 will take for my sub ject "Emipre Day." Empire Day, May 24, is a day set apart in commemoration of the birthday of our late beloved Queen "'Victoria the Good," to encourage and cement the feel-' ing of national brotherhood amongst the members of the British Empire all over the world. On this day . the spirit of Empire should be upon us, and the warm red blood _ flow tingling with pride through the breast i of each British subject. To say "civis! Romanus sum" (I am a Roman citizen) was j the Roman's proudest boast. It- meant a lot in those days, but compared! with "I am - a British citizeh" . it is in- j significant indeed. To be a British subject is to be a member of the greatest Empire the world has ever seen. Upon her possessions the sun never sets, her command of the sea no nation dares challenge, her just laws, free- , dom and wealth are the envy of every power. In com...
