Lifting Power in Growing Plants. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 29 May 1914

Lifting'Power in Growing Plants. The rapidity with \vfcich drooping loaves revive under a shower shows [ the extraordinary quickness with which plant roots take up wnter 'and drive it. through the stem to | the uppermost twigs and leaves. A | simple way of discovering how rapid ly this takes place is by watering a whito iris with a blue solution. In I a few hours its white dowers will he : streaked with blue. The power | exertefl by the roots and litems of | growing trees is almost incredible. The roots of a young oak are i known to have lifted a block of | granite weighing G4 tons. The lifting began in the fifth year of the tree's growth, and withing the ; ne.\t seven years the fetonc was | raised more than eight inches. This remarkable fent has been exceeded by the American swamp cypress, which throws out immense but tresses around its stem. A barge loaded with bricks was wrecked on , one of tlte.se buttresses in the Okla j waha river, and six years Inter the growth of the tree ha...

A Tango in the Heavens. STARS WHICH WALTZ INTO SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 29 May 1914

A Tango in the Heavens. STARS WHICH WALTZ INTO SPACE. To the great regret (says the London ".Paily News") of a cheer ing crowd of holiday juveniles, Professor Turner delivered the last of his '.'Christmas lectures*' at tho Royal Institution. At tho end of his chat—full of humour and very skilfully wrapped up instruction—ho bade his boy and girl friends adiou in a nice little speech and wished them all a Happy New Year. The professor and his young friends had just returned somewhat breath less and aw'ed, from an exciting •trip amid the 'whirling' atoms of the Milky Way, a ride on the shaggy back of Ursa Major, and a .most Imchanting roundabout in the cir cus of the Zodiac. On the way tho professor told his follow travellers how to measure the passage of light from, say, Sirius to the human eye, and how to do lots of other things that happen between our own rolling star and brother twinklers in the firmament. ITo showed how light took time to travel, just as sound did. You could tell ...

FRUIT GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 29 May 1914

FRUIT GROWING. .J. Tbc fact that application has been made by the local municipal authorities for the excision of portion of the area reserved as Stale forests to the south of Creswick is well known. The reason for the application is a good one—to put the land to better use than for growing timber by inducing closer settlement and laying out orchards. It is well known that the fruit growing industry in suitable districts—such as Creswick—is highly profitable, and if it were placed on a firm basis here abouts it would help towards the greater prosperity of the town and district. The area above referred to has been inspected and reported upon in a very favorable manner by agricul tural and fruit growing experts attached to the Department of Agriculture, but from that time nothing has been heard of the application beyond the fact that the borough council received a communication (per Sir A. J. Peacock) from the Conservator of Forests, in which he intimated that it was his intention to ...
