BEES IN THE ORCHARD. Their Effect on the Fruit Yield. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

BEES IN THE ORCHARD. Their Effect on the Fruit Yield. 'Are bees essential in the orchard, and do they injure the fruit?' are questions which appear to be fraught with a diversity of opinion, and are continually cropping up and discussed by fruit growers. Close observation will convince the most sceptical that bees are instrumental in increasing the output of fruit. People who ought to know better often accuse the bees of destruction of fruit. From careful experiments m mis direction, it nas been conclusively proved that bees will not molest fruit except after rain, which bursts the ripe grapes so that they can get at them. Had it not been for the bees in fertilizing and making perfect fruit there would not be the same quantity to destroy. From a fruit grower's standpoint blossom spraying at improper times is bad policy. Some growers will persist in spraying the trees while they are in bloom. This -should not be done. If perfect fruit is desired the spraying should not take place unt...

8PRAY MIXTURES ~ ' Formulas For Home-Made Prepara tions. Arsenate of Lead. This is one of the most valued of the arsenical insecticides. It has in many cases entirely displaced Paris Green with orcliardists, and there are at least three good reasons for it. First, the arsenate of lead has great nualitioc Tf will nnf tiro oil off, even in heavy showers of rain. Some recent experiments have shown the presence of this arsenate on the leaf of sufficient quantity to kill in sects ten weeks after spraying. Sec ond, it can be used fin any strength without burning the foliage of the plant sprayed. Third, ' it has fungi cidal properties that are increased when added to lime sulphur. Arse nate of lead can be made at home or bought in paste form on the market. Ordinarily, it is easier to buv the nre pared material.

The Gentle Reader. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

ThcJSentle Reader. - Charles Dickens once received an in vitation to a, 'Walter Scott' party, each guest being expected to attend in the character of one or other of Scott's heroes. On the eventful night, however, greatly to the astonishment, of the asembled 'Rob-Roys' and 'Wa- verleys,' Dickens turned up in ordi nary evening- dress, and sintiarentlv quite unconcerned. At length the host, who was feeling uneasy, came up to the novelist and inquired: 'Pray, Mr. Dickens, what character of Scott's can jou possibly be supposed to represent?' 'Character!' said Dickens. 'Why, sir/ a character you will find in every 'Character!' said Dickens. 'Why, sir, a character you w.jll find in every one of Scott's novels. I,' he went on, smilingly, 'am the 'gentle reader.'' When making custards use the yolks of the eggs only. The whites should be saved. They add nothing to the flavor of the custard, and will be found most useful for clearing soups.

THE PASSING OF CHIVALRY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

THE PASSING OF CHIVALRY. 'I attended a meeting of the wo man suffrage club this afternoon,' re marked the landlady, indignation in her voice, 'and I rode home on a tram car and had to stand all the way. I was the only lady on the car and not a man offered me his seat.' 'I suppose you wore the woman's suffrage badge you usually hang upon the outer walls, Mrs. Jiggers,' com mented the star boarder. 'The men in the car doubtless saw the badge and reflected that you had as .good a right to hang on to a strap as any of them. Men are fair, if not always generous,, and they believe in equal and exact justice. It is not right that women should be taxed if they are not permitted to stand in the street cars and other public conveyances. 'In the old days, before women were supinely content to do without their rights, the chivalrous conduct of the iuvu .it flo iciiiiei duiiLii auie. i iiert? was a' foolish superstition that wo men were ' gentle, modest creatures, unable to protect themselves, a...

DEVELOPING THE DAIRY HERD. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

DEVELOPING THE DAIRY HERD. I If we would produce good milkers we must have good stock to breed from as well as the prpper barns and con veniences for caring for- them. It mat ters not what dairy breed is selected, for they are all adapted to some par ticular purpose, some perhaps better than others, but the man who suc ceeds with one breed, in most cases, would succeed with another had he selected it for the particular branch of dairying he intended to follow. lne cow from which the young dairy heifer is to breed must be, in form and appearance, and also in ac tual service, a good milker, possess ing in herself as many of the desirable qualities as can be found. The bull to which she is coupled should be de scended from a 'good milk-producing family, and the breeder should be as sured of the fact by a pedigree, if possible (at all events by a knowledge of the ancestors for a number of gen erations, both male and female). By following this frlan you may in a few years build up a herd...

There are many different kinds of bulbs that come out In the end of Winter, Some vegetables have bulbs — such as onions and many other plants. If you leave them in the same place for three or four years the flowers will come out much stronger looking, and will last much longer than if you were to shift them about every year or so. Jonquils and daffodils are very pretty flowers.

Fruit Trees By Sydney Burnett, Grade VI. There are many kinds of trees such as apple trees, cherry trees, pear trees, and many other kinds.

Xr there' were thirty branches on a tree and each branch produced thirty more, then the tree might not be able to hold all the branches and we would't get so much fruit from the treeB.

SAILOR AND HERO. Romances of the Cross "For Valor." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

SAILOR AND HERO. Romances of the Cross 'For Valor.' It was on a June day in 1S57 that Queen Victoria pinned the first 'Cross for Valor' on the breast of a gallant young sailor. The picture comes to vivid life before us — the Queen riding on a white horse in her scarlet tunic, with its embroidered sash, her plume * of red and white feathers fluttering on her gold-banded hat; in front of her , .a thin line of Crimean heroes — sixty- two officers and men, sailors and sol diers, many of them with bandaged heads, empty tunic-sleeves or pitiful stumps for legs; and girdling the cen tral scene the serried splendors of her army, fringed by dense crowds of spec tators. A. scene that will live, as long as Britain has a history; for that June day saw the opening of a new and glorious era of chivalry, when Eng land's Queen, her smiles struggling bravely with her tears, decorated with her own hands these 'fragments' of her bravest heroes. The crowning mo ment came when a veteran, support ed by t...

Commercial. a - BRIAGOLONG MARKET. Messrs. Theo. B. Little & Co. held their usual monthly sale at Briagolong on Wednesday, when there was a good yarding of cattle, sheep and pigs. Prices ruled well up to lato market rates, fat cows selling from £7 to £8. Store cattle sold at ruling rates, while pigs, of which there wa9 a large yard ing, were easier, owing to the late spring. Mr J, Bourke made his debut as auctioneer, and his initial effort promises well for a successful carcer. MELBOURNE MARKETS. FAT SHEITP. 19,000 yarded, comprising 176 trucks and 1000 by road. The mar ket was well supplied with good and prime qualities, a fair proportion of which came forward off shears. Best shorn crossbreds met with the addi tional competition of a Tasmanian buyer, who operated freely, and for such biddings were brisk, and prices ruled firm throughout. Extra prime crossbreds in the wool were moder ately represented, while best trier inos were scarce. The bulk of the supply, however, cons...

HEALTH NOTES. About Cough. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

HEALTH NOTES. By Dr. Andrew Wilson. About Cough. It is a great mistake to suppose that cough is an ailmetit which tends to trouble us in the cold seasons of the year only. It is true, of course, that by far the greater number of cases of bronchitis and similar troubles are liable to affect us in the winter sea son, and of such troubles cough is a natural sympton. But just as there are varieties of headaches, due to widely different causes, so there are varieties of cough which are similarly found to depend upon causes some times far removed from those involv ing the state of the lungs.. As a fam iliar example of the later statement we may take what is called a throat cough. Here an irritating- dry cough is more or less constantly represented in the history of some individuals. No expectoration is brought up. The lungs may be and often are in a state of perfect health, and yet the irritating cough' persists. It is astonishing to find the large number of persons exr hibiting the sympt...
