Orchard Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 30 October 1909

Orchard Notes. [Br J. COoxxu, in Journal of Agriculture.] Present indications and reports p-,int to a prolific and profitable sea son. stone fruits have set well in most districts, and apples, pears. &c., promise a fair crop, even where heavy yields were obtained last season. Frost, hail, or very heavy winds may diminish the promise, or the thrips, so fatal to the setting of Five Crown Pippin, Rome Beauty, and other late blooming varieties of apples in occa sional seasons, may again be in evid ence should favorable weather for the pest occur, and the fruit-grower he powerless to avert ensuing damage. These non-combatable agents are fortunately of rare occurrence, and there is nothing at present to denote danger for the season. The careful orchardist also knows the risks he may take in dealing with what are practi cally certain foes to his profit-earning fruits. Black spot, aphis of kinds, and codlin moth are factors that re quire to be dealt with in no uncertain manner, and ...

Original Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 30 October 1909

Original Poetry, I know our house is small; Mag, And scarcely with the times; Each house our neighbours build Our little cot outshines. We did not build such mansions As they've built round here of late, But when I built this house, Mag, It was fairly ulp-to-date. It has been our pride and shelter For manyj happy years. It has seen our'sorrows5 too,;' .. And has Iben sanctified with tears, Here in life we started Fairly on our own, And here our little kiddies - Hlave to menl and womnen-grown. Oh, how the little rascals Came hopping one by one, And how the last arrival The other ones outshone, Such prattling and such crowing. And cunning little ways; What a care and worry I Yet those were our golden days. We can't expect for ever To live on life's sunny side. Trouble came-at last And little Christy died. And for our friends and neighbours In justice let me say It meant death to many a little one Unless they kept away. When we knelt here alone In the presence of death, With poor littl...
