APT REMARKS. Next week 'The Mail' deals with the perennials that should be purihased as plants. . ? An exhibition of rose pruning is being arranged lor at the Adelaide Oval. Go j.nd see the practical demonstration and verify ''The Mail's' ideas. 'They toil not, neither do they spin,' is all very well, but some one has to do the toil for them. It is all a fairy tale about the blue rose. The gardeners are as keen on 'The Mail' as the sportsmen, as it always gives the straight tip and has inside informa tion. There are no advertisements in this column, but if a man grows a good flower we feel bound to. notice it, and justly so. Find out some one who will sell yon seme good perennial asters.

VEGETABLES ALL THE TEAR ROUND. THE ONION. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 22 June 1912

¥EGETJtBLE£ ALL TfiEPYEAR ROUND. M By 'Etechar.' ( fWritten Exclusively for 'The Mail.') 1HE ONION. The Kind of SoiL— Although the onion is one of the easiest vegetables to grow it is one of the most difficult to grow well, and amateurs wonder why they can seldom, get the nice, firm, round onions which the market gardener in the hills or at Mount Gambier sends in by the ton, and seemingly without any care being exercised in their cultivation. One reason is, of course, that the soil of those localities is especially adapted to the growth of this vegetable, for it deiights in. a rich, loose, or friable soil, in which tLe roots have no trouble in going down, and the bulb is not confined and mis shapen by a crust on the top -of the bed. In our little cottage plot we are not able to change our soil, but we muv im prove it in various ways, as by the ad dition of stable manure,- road sweepings, compost heap sittings, . sand, and wood ashes, and in this way we may make it more nearly approa...

No need to hurrv. nothins to hurry for,, nothing hurrying. Ho breath less searching for posts bearing the U-^end 'Hail cars here/' ; No hideous uncertainty as to which side of the road to stand, and on what spot, unharassed by the ne cessity of unearthing the nM^pn mesning of 'down' and 'up' cars. ? No flimsy and illusive paper to clutch till the jour ney's end. No need to speed across main streets with your head twirling on your shoulders in a frenzied effort to look all ways at once-^as safe to brood in the middle of the road as on the path in those days. ° No ceaseless clanging of metallic gongs to disturb your train of thought and lend wings to your pleasantly ambling feet. Everything in harmony, everything orowsy, every one cheerful, no one in a hurry, plenty of time to spare. Ah! Ade laideans cherish the me...

BOOKS REVIEWED. A STORY OP JAPAN. 'The Kingdom of Slender Swords,' by Hallie Erminie Kives; Everett & Co. (Q. Robertson & Co. Proprietary, Limited, Adelaide).— This is, as the title indicates, a story of Japan, written by one who is evidently well informed about the man ners and customs of the Japanese, and who has a fine appreciation of these inte resting people. We are introduced to Barbara Fairfax on board an ocean liner, as it steams into the harbour of Yoko hama, and this was her first picture of Japan: — 'The hills lay a clear pile of washed greys and greens, with saffron tinted ralleyB between, wound in a base c{ tender lilac. By imperceptible grada tions this unfolded, caught 6ub-tones of ermine against umbers, of warm reu and flickering emerald, white glints of sun on surf-like splashes of silver, till suddenly, spectral and perfect, above a cluster of peaks like purple gentians, glowed lorth a phantom mountain, its golden wistaria cone inlaid in the deeper ...

THE S.A. POULTRY AND KENNEL CLUB. The Government Grant. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 22 June 1912

THE S A. POULITOT AND KENNEL CLUB. The Government Grant. For some years the dub have been in receipt of £15 as special prize money from the Government to encourage the production of birds most suitable for table poultry. Two vears ago it was re duced to £10, and recently the club re ceived a notice that the grant would be discontinued. The committee regretted that the Minister of Agriculture had given this decision, as they considered the table poultry section was one of the weakest parts of the industry, owing to the general popularity of the egglaying .breeds; so they waited as a deputation on him and asked that the original grant of £15 might be restored, or, failing this, that the grant of £10 might be con tinued. . 1 might state here that similar clubs in the other States have received donations from £100 to £150 from their Governments! Following is a copy of the letter from the Government to the Poul try and Kennel Onb:— -JKe£ening to the deputation from the South Australian P...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. Local Stock Markets. HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 22 June 1912

ITEMS OF INTEREST. ? y ? Local Stock Markets. HORSES. During the week Messrs. Barker Bro thers sold, on behalf of Mr. E. E. War burton, of Erldunda Station, Central Australia, a draft of 114 unbroken horses, consisting mainly of medium draught and delivery sorts. All these horses were of Mr. Warburton's own breeding; and, in spite of -the dry state of a portion of the road, arrived in pretty good condition. The. market being bare of good, fresh stock, the horses met with a ready sale, and very satisfactory prices were rea lised, the highest being £35, and the average £16 3/4. During the. past few months, owing to the long, dry spell, the horse market has been somewhat dull, but since the recent fine rains it is improving. The country in the far north-^hat is, north of Blood's Creek — is experiencing a good season, but for a stretch . of about 129 miles between Blood's Creek and Ood nadatta it is absolutely devoid of feed, and stock travelling down from Central Aus tralia suffer cons...

FOOTBALL. WEST TORRENS V. WEST | ADELAIDE. Saturday gave promise of being an ideal day for football from a player's point of view, with a nice springy tnrf and just enough nip in the air to make strenuous =xereise eniovable. but a strong wind sprang up early in the afternoon and threatened to spoil things for awhile. The West Adelaides, fresh from the fine vic tory at Norwood last Saturday, were con fident of winning; but the blue-and-golds' supporters asserted that their favourites' form at ,Alberton last Saturday was all ?wrong, and bearing in mind the team's fine record to date, would not hear of de feat. Their confidence was to a certain extent shaken by the fact that their cham pon ruck T''' (Geddes), who, we under stand, has left the district and sought j ''fresh climes and pastures new,' was not ' playing; still West Torrens say he will be back with them after the interstate match.
