Author of "A.B.c. of Rational .lanuring," "A.B.C. of scientific stock Feeaing Under Austrahlan Conditions," Etc., ·Etc. II. The -prevention of soil exhaustion and the madntenance of soil fertility are interdependent, the one being. the logical outcome of the other. But modern agricultural science goes fur ther, and aims to. increase fert!lity: in order to secure permanent in crease in yields of produce.- This can only be achieved underi the special Australian conditions of soil and cli mate by rational manuring. The tune has now arrived when an in crease in the average yield of wheat per acre of the land devoted to its cultivation is absolutely essential to continued prbosperity, and the in crease must be regular, not spas modic. This increase is easily pos sible, and undeniably profitable, us. der conditions even below average. The new method tends itself to-e...

:LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. P: ublished by Arrangement with Ward, Lock .and Co. Ltd., Lend. and Melb. (All Rights ReservLed.) IV. It was almost dinner-time when the Archdeacon returned to the yacht, and he had but the briefest word with Hugh. . "A very difficult case," he said, evasively. "I am quite at a .loss, 1 my dear fellow." His further pro mise to. discuss the whole thing frankly at a later hour of the night sent the young liaronet to his cabin with the vague hope of a man who relies rather upon a friend than upon himself. He did not tell the worthy ecclesiastic just how intoler able the hours of waiting had been, or how difficult he had found the commonest conventions. They talked of many things at dinner-Jack Bowles of Freddy By water's straight and narrow ways End the half-crowns they were cost ing him; MIat Michel of politicians and the new 'taxes he was not called upon to pay; the Archdeacon chiefly of the products of the Moselle Val ley. The chief on board th...
THE BAY OF FUNDY [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 March 1914
THE BAY OF FUNDY The Bay of Fundy, the scene of the wreck of the "Cobequid," is full of strange and contradictory features (says "'lIhe. Westminster Gazette"). Grand Mleanan Island, which lies to the port hand of a vessel entering the bay, is one rocky graveyard-on the reef to the south-east an impaled ship is a common sight. Every indentation, nay, every rocky cranny, bears some terrible and suggestive name descrip tive of some maritime tragedy. On the island, twelve miles in length and scarcely inhabited, is a graveyard filled with the bodies ofunknown sailors. A little above Trinity Rock, or which the "Cobequid" is impaled, the coast of Nova Scotia rises in rocky parapets from the sea, and a. narrow inlet ad mits to the Annapolis Valley, where, strange to say; the eye rests on a fer tile valley of apple orchards, which raise the highest-priced fruit in the world. In this sheltered space is a climate which, owing partly to the Gulf Stream and partly to position, differs altogether...
