Her hus band, James Mullan. later attempted suicide by jumping into the water at "Wylie's Baths, Coogee. Mrs Mullan, with her husband and five children, lived at 59 Leichhardt street, Waverley.

"PEACHING" FATAD SUICIDE ENDS COVENTRY [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

I "PEACHING" FATAD SUICIDE ENDS COVENTRY Having1 been sent to Coventry by his former associates fov "putting somebody away" to the police, James O'Connell, a wharf laborer, living in Lonsdale street, became despondent and committed suicide on January 24 O'Connell was a middle-aged man, and at one time was an engineer. He had had a chequered career, and fol lowed an idle life. A few weeks ago he was mixed up in a brawl and was struck on the head with a bottle. In the row somebody stole his watch and chain, and he supplied the police with the name of the person he sus pected. That was his Undoing; it was the unpardonable sin among the class with whom he associated, for writh them it is a breach of etiquette to "put anybody away" to the police. The attitude of his oid associates underwent a change. They would not speak to him, and in different ways showed him that they did not desire to know him any longer. A few days ago he said to a police man, "The mob won't have anything to do with...

Superphosphate Tests [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

Superphosphate- Tests The results are available . of tests made by the Department of Agricul ture with different applications of su perphosphate in wheat-growing'. The average application in the whole State is 56-601b. per acre. At Rutherglen, Do.ngerenong and Wyuna one plot was unmanured, one was treated with 561b. per acre of super., and a third with 1 cwt. The returns are illuminating, at least so far as the past season was concerned. The no-manure plots pro duced, per acre, at Rutherglen, 19 bushels 161b.; Longerenong, 17 bushels 221b.; and Wyuna, 10 bushels 35 lb. The 561b. produced at Rutherglen, 28 bushels 321b.; Longerenong, 25 bush els 401b.; and Wyuna, 16 bushels 43 lb. The 1 cwt. produced at Ruther glen, 30 bushels 161b.; Longerenongr 29 bushels 311b.; and Wyuna, 18 bushels 341b. The 561b. application paid handsomely over the no manure plot, and the i cwt. provided a rea sonable increase over the 561b., with the added and important advantage that the showing of grass in t...

Bulk Handling [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

Bulk Handling In his report upon bulk handling j written as a result of his inquiri.es in America, Mr Fitzpatrick, Chief Com missioner for Railways, mentions Sir Thomas Tait's- opinion, expressed while he was in charge of the local system and still unaltered after further ob servation in Canada, that the present output of wheat in Victoria would not justify the change. Mr Fitzpatrick says his colleagues agree with him that in most respects, and particularly in the greater celerity with which the grain can be dealt with throughout its jour ney from the farmer's waggon to the ship, bulk handling is preferable to bag handling. The consideration is thus narrowed down to the points of view of (1) "The cost to the State and the railways of introducing the sys tem; (2) the relative cost of the bag and bulk handling methods in their operation to all concerned; (3) whe ther the State is producing, or likely to do so in the near future, sufficient grain to warrant a change of methods i at the...

THE RURAL WORLD FARM AND FIELD The Season [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

3 — The Season Harvesting has been completed in the principal grain-growing areas. Generally speaking the results have been satisfactory. In some instances yields were considerably in excess of expectation. Rust caused a deal of damage in some localities. The rav ages of this fungus disease recalled the disastrous visitation of 1878. Thresh ing and chaffcuting are now engaging general attention. The change of wea ther experienced throughout the State on January 2 5 was much appreciated. Dams that were nearly dry have been replenished. A deal of good will fol low the heavy rain that fell. Most districts were favored. In many parts over an inch was recorded. This will permit of useful work being done on fallow land, and cause seeds on stub ble paddock to germinate. Grass is plentiful and all kinds of farm animals are in excellent condition. Autumn prospects for farmers and graziers are encouraging. The recent rain will benefit potato crops. They were begin ning to show signs of exhaus...

Farm Competitions [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

Farm Competitions The value of well-managed prize farm competitions could hardly be over-estimated. Anyone studying- the farm practices common at Nhill, Don- j aid, and St. Arnaud, perceives abun dant evidence that such contests have proved highly beneficial in those dis tricts. Indeed the methods followed have so improved in recent years that agricultural societies in all our large | producing districts should enterprismg j ly emulate their example. In report ing on the Nhill competitions, Mr A. E. V. Richardson, M.A., B.Sc., the judge, expresses the opinion that they have influenced the farming practice of the wheat areas of the whole State. At Nhill itself he observed in farm buildings, equipment, and farm prac tice, considerable improvement as com pared with two years ago, when he was also the judge. A healthy, spirit, of rivalry lias been established. Even wheat growers who had hot entered keenly observe what has been done by the successful men, and amplify or amend their pract...

Practical Advisers [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

Practical Advisers It is admitted that the closer settle ment movement in Victoria, so far as it refers to " dry" farming-, is not prov ing- a general success. An unprejudiced investigation of closer settlement as it is applied to irrigation discloses one or two interesting* facts which may be made to have a bearing on the .other l>ranch. The irrigationists are making headway in part because a system un usual in State endeavor in Australia has been inaugurated. This is the per sonal influence that is exerted from the top and ramifying down. Mr Elwood Mead has acquainted himself with the material affairs of practically all the 5200 irrigationists in- the settlements. He knows the circumstances of each, and what each man is doing or trying to do. With that knowledge he is able to encourage this man, advise that, and bring pressure upon another, and, un consciously, perhaps, the individual settler is stimulated to greater activity and to adopting sensible methods. In each district i...

"ULSTER, STAND FAST " HO—E RULE DENOUNCED SPTCTCHTTKS AT ORANGE PICNIC "Ulster Stand Fast" was the key note of the speeches made on Januaiy 26 at the picnic of the Loyal Orange Institution, at Aspendale Park race course. Unfavorable weather in the earlier part of to-day affected the attendance, but over 2000 men, women and chil dren listened to the speeches from the grand stand. In the afternoon; when sports were held, the weather was fine. Bro. O. R. Snowball, M.L.A., Grand master, said that the present gather ing might be unusually memorable. The Empire -was drifting rapidly too near civil war. William of Orange freed the people of England from the tyranny of ungodly and cruel men; but from this year onward they would have to couple with the name of the great national hero that of Sir Edward Carson.
