Won Wron Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 November 1914
Won Wron Railway. The Attorney-General moved a bill in the Legislative Assembly on Thursday, to authorise the con struction of a 5 fc£t 3 inch railway from Alberton, through Yarram to Won Wr'on, a distance of twelve and a "halt miles, at an estimated cost of £54,264. The line, he said, would serve 100,000 acres of fer tile land. For the first year the estimated revenue was £2204, and the expenditure £4886, but the Railway Standing Committee re ported that the line would rapidly develop the district and increase the revenue. The line would tap excellent suppliies of timber suit able for sleepers. Mr. Emslic said that the con struction of a number of lines -au thorised had not yet been commen ced, and some had been hung up for several years. Authorisation was misleading, unless the work was taken jn hand within a reason able time. He hoped that in the clearing of the land, valuable tim ber would not be destroyed. The Minister of "Education said. that a forest bf 50,000 acres of yel- j...

Orchard and Garden. NOTES ON SPRAYING. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 November 1914
■ Orchard and Garden. ' i _ ' i NOTES ON SPRAYING. I The peach aphis will now have ' made its -appearance in orchards which were not grayed with the red oil emulsion in the winter. The Uobacco solution will now be re-, quired, and this may be sprayed on j as strongly as the grower wishes. If possible the operationjshould be repeated as quickly as possible j after the first operation, so as to kill any aphides previously pro-1 tected by the others, or any that may only have been weakened by the first operation. j The time lias also arrived when spraying is needful for the pre-1 veniton of a!l fungus diseases, such as shothole or scab, black spot, leaf ru6t, leaf curl, etc. In "the case of these pests, prevention is' better than cure; and to delay be yonri the correct period the appli- | cation of the necessary spray is to court disaster. For black spot j" of apple and pear, the spraying J should be performed as soon as' the earliest flowers are opening.! For shothole and scab, the ti...
