GROWING WHEAT. The Width of the Drills. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
GROWING WHEAT. The Width of the Drills. Some attention 'has been directed lately to the question whether the com mon'`practice in' New' Soith Wales of bwing': wheat in drills seven t "-eight inchees? apart is the best, or whether the 'pee -between could be increased or reduced .with advantage.

THE ORCHARD. GUMMOSIS. A Common Orchard Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
THE ORCHARD. GUMMOSIS. A' Common Orchard Trouble. Probably no sight is more familiar to growers of peaches, apricots, cherries, or plums, than the exudation of gum from the wood. Sometimes the masses of it are large; sometimes they are only minute pearly drops. Sometimes the tenderest twigs are affected, sometimes the slain trunk. Sometimes it is not even reen on the surfnee, but collects in the interior of the cells or in cavities known as "gum pockets." At all times, however, it is an indica tion that there is something wrong, and in a current article, the Biologists of the Department of Agriculture indicate sole of the causes. The phenomenon of gummosis has ex cited perhaps more investigation than any other problem in plant pathology, and it appears that in stoine fruit and in citrus the conditions that are asso ieated with it are very similar. According to Ormond Butler, who has done considerable work in this field, gum mosis appears to arise within the plant, and to be induced ...
THE SHAFTESBURY HOME FOR IN[?]BRIATES. NEW GOVERNMENT POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
THE SHAFTESBURY HOME FOR INEBRIATES. &nbsp; NEW GOVERNMENT POLICY. (By V.J.) It was a happy thought that prompted Mr. Hall, Minister for Justice, when in consultation with the Comptroller-Gen- eral of Prisons, to suggest the establish ment of an Inebriates' Home at Wat- ons Bay. The old building, formerly used as a Maternity Home, and once a Reformatory for Unruly Girls, is being rapidly transformed into a prosperous looking country residence. It is a one storied structure, built on a rambling plan, and divided into sections by open squares or courts. Green turf and avi- aries of singing birds will make these courts attractive and cheerful for the inmates. All that is suggestive of re- formatory days and prison life is being removed, and every improvement that will impart an atmosphere of home and cheerfulness is introduced. The aim is to treat the non-criminal inebriate as the victim of a curable dis- ease. Much has been done even in gaol walls to segregate him from crimina...
THE WISE CROWN PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
THE WISE OROWN PRINCE. He was a born manager; When he dismissed Bismarck, his oldest son, the Crown Prince, who was only a little boy then, said:-"Father they say that you will now tell the people what to do all by yourself. You'll enjoy that, won't you'l" The conversation was not pro longed. The same impression is conveyed in the popular riddle-" What is the differ. once between, the Emperor and God Al mighty?" to which the answer is: " "God Almighty knows all things, but the Emperor knows all things much bot ter." - ! One night the Kaiser, enjoying him soif in the Opera House, laughed im moderately at the remark of a stage hero, who, being asked, "Do you ever quarrel0" briskly replied, "No, not if 1 have my own way." The Empress's brother was present, and remarked to-a friend, "'It reminds me so much of my brother-in-law and sister. They never fight, because he sees to it that his slightest whims are obeyed; nay, more, anticipated." His insane sense of supremacy intrudes oven into...

THE STATIONMASTER'S DILEMMA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
THE STATIONMsASTER'S DILEMMA. Little wonder that "lose majeste'" is a serious crime in a country that is own ed by such a Sovereign. Little consider ation could be expected of the comforts and conveniences of others that would affect the royal dignity. A stupid regu lation was issued by Germany's "All highest" that all stationmasters in Prus sia were to provide themselves with a specially-designed dress-suit, including a toy sword and a plumed hat, to wear when the Kaiser passed through their towns. As the outfit cost about a fourth of the average station-master's annual salary, resignation or starvation, or both, necame the order of the day. According to the Secret History of the Court of Berlin prosecutions and punish ments for loes majeste are so numerous that for this offence some three hundred years of imprisonment are imposed by Prussian judges from January to De cember, and the other statelets follow suit. " Accordingly, three thousand five hundred years-twice the timer of th...
FOR WOMAN'S EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
FOR WOMAN'S EYE. S(By "Blue Bird.") A charming design is shown in our il lustration, in which both a striped and plain material are combined.. The tunic is shaped so as to reveal a square panel of the striped underskirt, and a wired Medici collar flares above revers of striped.ailk, opening over the corsage to form a V at the throat. Black velvet will be worn very much this winter for walking gowns. Indeed, it is the material' of the hour for all smart occasions and it is a very notice able fact that although coats and skirts are still very popular-indeed, it is not supposed that they will over be any thing else-walking dresses are at pres ent enjoying a vogue they have not had for years past. A smart-walking dress, with a good set of furs or a rur coat, is infinitely more up-to-date than even the latest model in a coat and skirt suit. Spenking of furs, they vwill be more worn than ever this winter. If we all wear the accepted styles when the really cold weather sets in, we shall re...

Gorizia,. the key of the Austrian position, covering Trieste, has been attacked by the Italian artillery, and a fort destroyed. Austrians have been routed west ward of.the Monte Crose Pass. . The French Government intends to ;make reprisals on Germany for the; .latter's use of . inflammable liquids 'in' tiench warfare.. Ten German subtuarines, it is said, are prowling round the Dardanelles. It is estimated that 250,000 Turks are perfectly entrenched, in strong positions, with at least one German officer per unit. Turkish prisoners state that the fire of the warships makes the Pen insula a sheet of flame. Attacks, therefore, are confined to the night, when the warships are unable to fire for fear of hitting their own troops. , ' .
