Potato Spraying •^ME-SULPHUn EXPERIMENTS. Ill a report giving tho results of to cout tests, tho demonstration farm in New York Sfcuto says it seems evident that lime-sulphur is not destined to tako tlio place of Bordeaux mixture as a spray for potatoes, In swito of the fact tliat it is cheaper and no doubt very convenient to use.

The Ballarat Exhibition. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 29 January 1914

The Ballarat Exhibition. 'l'he couvteousness of nature, and man's capacity to adapt it to the necessities and luxuries of life is strikingly illustrated in the varied and massed material now on view at the Ballarat Exhibition. One is at first sight almost embarrassed by tho diversity of objects which appeal to oar admiration or regard, and it is not till wo ars sensibly aflucted by the change which time effects on all things, that we realise what is meant by the progress of civilization, or the gulf which separates the present from tho past. The Exhibition certainly furnishes ample proof of tho pre-emi nonce of the Stato as a spot of earth supremely blest, whilst the intslli- j geuce and indomitable onergy of the people which could so transform tlio I conditions of 50 year* ago, deservodly command tho envy and imitation of mankind.

During tho wcok Mr Albert Barry caught several nice trout in the upper roaches of tho NVerribiO. On Foundation Day a numbor oC Metropolitan anglers visited Pyku's Creek reservoir, but us far as,wo can learn uo fish were grassed. Tho fishing competition arranged by the Ballan Anglers' Club to tako place at Cantwcll's Crook reservoir on Foundation. Day, was a failure. In the first placo very few met at the tryating place, and thoso who did only managed to land a number of sprats. Tliero must bo good perch in this reservoir, but they take as much catching as trout. It is often said that landing a 51b trout is great sport, exciting aud ex hilarating, and likely to give you palpitation of tho heart.

Furs Preserved by Cold [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 29 January 1914

Furs Preserved by Cold I When the "lifo" of a. fur garment is considered in relation to its cost, the economical quality is a high ono, par ticularly to-day, when sconce has effec tcd so perfect a preserver as cold stor age. This- development of preserva tion, which actually arrests na'tural deterioration caused h.v evaporation of the natural oil in the leather and hair of furs in temperate and hot atmos pheres, apart from the immunity it provides against ravages by moths, prolongs the lifo of the 'commodity in a wonderful degree. This advantage alona, compensates for a great deal of tho recent rise in values. Further, the depth of color and gloss in tho fur is more enduring by many years than it was under tho warehousing conditions of bygone days.
