STRAWBERRY FETE. WAIKERIE ANGLICAN CHUSCH. The Annual. strawberry fete in con nection . with St. J allies' Anglican Church,. took place on Saturday, Jfov ember 29th, in the Waikerie hall. ItJ was intended to have held the fete in the -open 'but the duet and wind" on the morning ot the. fete were so bad that the stalls had to be dismantled and removed into 'Jie hall, which "was too small- for the purpose, and every-, thing was verv crowded. It was a great disappointment to the ladies who had finished .their stalls outside, and. meant so much extra work, for thain. A splendid crowd attended ir the afternoon and evening, when a very brisk trade was done at each stall. • The' -financial results, under the circumstances were very satisfactory, £57 5J- being realised.

BOY SCOUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 12 December 1913

BOY SCOUTS. By " The Pathfinder." On Saturday afternoon tbirtjj-fire scouts crossed the river in charge of S.Ms., and had a good swim. Excel lent progress is being mad® by learners this tfr&eon. A number of boys who could not swim a stroke catne to us at the winter's end, and can now swim short distances. With every lesson their swimming power is increased, One mother said of her boy " The only time he washes Ms face is when he hae to go out with Mr. Barbar." And yet you find •people who consider the Scout Movement a doubtful proposition. Surely the power that persuades a boy—a boy mind you—to waeh his j face is a power that works for gocd. While on' this subaect 1 wieh to express gratitude to the general run of ecouts for the big improvement in : personal appearance. Now, it is r rare thing to see a scout extremely untidy, "Of course, odd boys turn up looking rather weird. Btill one judges a flower-garden by its best flowers, not its worst.

SULPHURING APRICOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 12 December 1913

SULPHURING- APRICOTS. , It is a difficult thing to say how Ions pitied apricots should be sul phured as a set rule (writes '* A. A. in the Jiiildura " Telegraph "). Many of the best dryers have experience enough 'io be able to tell by the looi. of the fruit after it has beeri sulphury if it has" been allowed long enough ii the sulphur house. H the juice of the irait is found to be collected _ in tliu cup in a small quantity this is gene rally an indication "of the eulphuni^ OP.mg sufficient. Another plan adopted is to take an apricot of aver size, and it the skin of the fruit vriii leave the flesh moderately easy, the ciiiie given has been sufficient. 2s o set rule can be laid dowi\. Those sulphuring apricots for the first time will'" do well to ascertain from a grower of experience as to the best results obtained. Apricots take the sulphur better il they are kept rrom the influence of the drying wind and sulphured as soon as possible after pitting tlie fruit. 31any years, ago the c...

THE HARVEST OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 12 December 1913

the Harvest outlook. J Exceptionally- favorable spring wea | thee made a. wonderful difference to Viie wheat crops of this State, and there was a marvellous recovery. At one tiuia (writes the Journal of Indus try} it looked as if the yield would not exceed an average of from f- >ur tc live" bushels to the acre, but it is now believed that the retim will Ve between eight and ten businH. Tff.j Diaking is general throughout the State, and harvesting will be begun' jn 3 ?al earnest almost at once. South Australia receives a yearly iheome from wool and -wheat alone of about £6,000,000, and it is satisfactory to leam that the wool sales, now prac tically concluded, have given a hand some return to the woolgrowers of this country. With the improved prospects for the. harvest there will be a big return for wheat, so tha*. the outlook is much brighter than it was a few nxmths ago. The most aa.Li.-iav.iu».v cuitural position {nam the manufac turers' po;nt of view, is the rapidly growing te...

DISSATISFIED IfifilfUTIONISTS. MR. SHOWELL'S REJOINDEtl. BOARD MUST BE) PARAMOUNT. At tfie Irrigation Trust meeting on Monday night . Eeveral letters "were received complaining of ^alleged defects in the distribution ot water during the current irrigation. Alter the matter had received some atten tion Mr. Showell entered a vigorous protest against the practice of de parting from the carefully planned decisions of the Board in response to tho clamour of individual eci.tlers. The real reason of the complaints he said, was that the' pumps kad. ,bDen started a week too late. This was undoubtedly caused by the con stant pressure brought to tear between trust meetings upon it em bers; by settlers Ao; alter dates o! pumping to suit their personal re quirements. It' might be said the Board should be too strong to regard this, hut constant pressure wears a^ay a stone or -at least leaves an impression.

N.S.W. CITR[?] [?]ROVES. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 12 December 1913

N,S.W« CITRC^ PROVES. Th« average return from a citrus orchard in the Cumberland district is estimated by the. Sydney "Morn ing Herald " to be about £21 per acre, the profits having increased by about 10 per cent, during the last few years. This estimate takes into consideration that many of the hold ings through indifferent. methods of cultivation or age of 'the. trees co not nearly contribute tbf-ir fwuota to the " total "crop.. To-day there is probably jafaout 22,000 'acres under citrus fruits, with 'an average ■ of about 900 dozen to the acxje, which comes very nearly up to the rccord of 1891, when " the average was" just over 1000 dozen per acre. This season the crop is compara-j tively light, owing! to certain vag aries of the season operating against, a Mg, return. Altogether, counting all varieties of citrus fruite, there is a yield of something like 1£ million bushels. If the whole of these 22.000 acres couM be brought to a state of perfection, ed as to induce a maximum ret...
