GIPPSLAND. ITS PROGRESS AND PROSPECTS [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 23 September 1911
GIPPSLAND. ITS PROGRESS AND PROSPECTS It is intensely Interesting to note the solid progress -which tills portion ol the State of Victoria-comprising, nearly a tittil of Its entire aren-ls making, nnd has been making, during the past half-dozen years. Settled In the very early 'forties, the pioneers found lt admirably adapted for grab- ine purposes, and tor a lonR time the territory was put to few other uses. Some thirty or forty years ago, how- ever, efforts nt the cultivation ot cer- eals were made, ¡ind, In nildltlon, oats, hay, bnrley mid wheat wore tried, and quite an export trade arose, the steamer Charles Edward taking a good many thousand bushels of wheat from Clydebank. But tho shipping prospects were somewhat precarious, and an Idea arose that the Gippsland wheat was not too Rood for milling purposes, and its cultivation declined. Still, other cereals continued to be grown with excellent results. Though the climate favored agriculture, and though the presence of seven sple...

Swan Hill and District. RAPID DEVELOPMENT. No year in tho history or the dis- trict stands out more prominently In the mareil ot progress and development than that just passed. Swan HUI itseir lias experienced remarkable growth of a substantial and lasting character. The town has gone nhoad literally with leaps and bounds, and large sums of money hare been «tient In tho erec- tion or new business premises and pri- vate dwellings. It is difficult to state nccuratcly how much has been ex- pended In this direction, but it Is fairly safe to place thc figure at about £20,000. The business places are fine structures, and many or the private dwellings are built on up-to-date plans. A fenture In this connection ls the fact that a number of them have been erected by mon who have made money in the Mallee districts nround. and who have come Into the town to reside In order to secure better edu- cational advantages for their families and better social surroundings tor themselves. As a result of...
Potentialities of Dairying [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 23 September 1911
Potentialities of Dairying Down In tho Western District there aro evidences ot there being much moro in dairying than was drenmt of in the philosophy of the enterprising few ? who, something over twenty years ago, with considerable trepidation, launched tho co-operative factory system. The improvements in the methods which have taken place in that period and the increase in the industry aro alike evidences of the fact that a progress- ive spirit has animated those en- gaged In it. It was, of course, the cream separator which first made lt possible for tho factory system to supersede the old-fashioned homo dairy process of setting the milk in pans-sometimes, where accommoda- tion was scant, those pans found lodg- ment under the domestic bed. Then the tester which enabled payments to be made in accordance with the but- ter-fat constituents of the milk sup- plied. Instead of by the number of gallons delivered, removed n great dis- ability. It made hard the way of the supplier who place...

He stood fidgeting hy the table with his helmet In his hand, looking tho picture of discomfort. Happily Mr. Ingram did not keep him waiting long. "Good-ovenlng again, sergeant," said Ingram cordially enough. He realised that tho man had to do his duty, also that lt was his business to assist ns fnr as lay in his power. "You wished to seo me?"

Pruning. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 23 September 1911
It Ia frequently considered Hint, lie cauBO orange and lomen trees arc evergreen, they do not need pruning Under this misapprehension they art allowed to grow unhindered, and thc result is nn uprlght-grow'ng tree, with an extremely weak leade . system, thc centre of tho tree bein.: n mnss ol thin, sprawling stems, and tho foliage and fruit only on tho outside. Citrus trees require building up from their youth, just thc samo ns any oilier fruit tree needs training. All evergreen fruiting trees, as well nF ornamental flowering shrubs, require n system of pruning for the continual and regular production nf new fruit- ing wood. All side growths must be removed from the young trees to n height of IS Inches or 2 feet, and four or (ive strong branches should bo al- lowed to develop so as to form a good head of strong-growing limbs. All other strong growths may he cleanly cut out. During tho second and fol- lowing years, the leaders may be cut out wherever suitable side shoots oc- cur so as...

PUSHING AND PULLING. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 7 October 1911
PUSHING AND PULLING. It has been wisely observpd that most operations can be more eflicirntly performed by drawing them along through their proper course than by attempting to push and jam I hem through, Just as lt ls much oasl-T to pull n rope than lt ls to push it. There are probably not many persons who have tried to push a rope, but very ninny have attempted things almost ns perverse. In many manufacturing establishments, for example, 'here may be seen numerous examples ot mon wasting a large part of their ott orgy endeavoring to move heavy pieces of work upon small truckB, pushing nnd laboring in the exertion ot effort, a small fraction ot which goes to the cause of actual progression. Uvea when such an effective aid to trans- port ns an Industrial railway Is in- stalled, lt ls often used nt less than Ita proper efficiency, because thorn la too much pushing and not enough, pulling. _

On one occasion, when there was a strong under-current ot Cooling against England in Morocco, pome Moorish officers wore boasting in lila hearing of the way they would like to treat the English.
