The Queen of Flowers. No. 2. ROSE STOCKS AND PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912

The Queen of Flowers. By ' Greenleaf .' Written Exclusively for 'The Mail.') No. 2. ROSE STOCKS AND PLANTS. The stock upon which the rose is bud ded has a great deal to do with the suc cessful growth of the plant, and the qua lity of the flower. It would never te correct to say that every rose should be budded on the briar as a standard, al though this stock suits the large majority. Many a rose has its own particular fancy, and refuses to live that joyous life which the gardener so dearly loves to see, on anything but that particular stock that it so desires. Asan instance, many com plain that Frau Karl DruschM is not a continuous bloomer. This usually comes from those who have this champion white rose on. its own roots or-- dwarf budded. If grown on the briar as. a standard it will bloom profusely all the year round. STANDARDS. South Australia fortunately possesses the finest stock for standard roses in the world in liic briar found in the Adelaide hills, and it has undoubtedly ma...

ELECTRICITY IN THE MILKING SHED. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912

ELECTRICITY IN THE MILKING SHED. There are few industries nowadays in which electricity does not play a part, and the latest in dairy appliances is an electrical milkinc machine invented by an American. The 'Scientific American of February 3 gives an illustration of this machine, which we reproduce below. One point that this machine has to re commend it is that the milk does not pass through any rubber tubing, the only rubber parts being located in the com pression plates, which imitate the pres sure of the hands in milking. Milking machines have, of course, been used for some time, but any improve ments cf a practical nature will always be welcomed by the dairy farmer, whose chief cUfficutly at present is the scarcity of labour.

PRACTICAL PARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912

PRACTICAL PARS. Looking to the fnture, the possibilities for wheat improvement appear to be un limited. Begin practising the constant use of a wheat-breeding vfct, from which to select wed wib ytm. :.. Large yields ? are largely the result . of 'good farming.' In general ploughing is the most im portant of the operations in preparing the seedbed. A deep soil of good tilth will absorb and hold for the use of plants .a large part of the rainfall. Conservation of soil moisture is an es sential factor in Australian agriculture. Soil moisture by proper handling may be moved from one layer of soil to ano ther. Perseverance, grit, and enterprise — three characteristics to be found in the suc cessful scrub farmer. The maximum of yield at a minimum of cost — the aim of every primary pro ducer. Don't expect every year to be a banner year; bad seasons will come. The effects of bad seasons can be very largely diminished by provision during prosperous years.

Items of Interest. XOXIOUS WEEDS. The administration of the Noxious Weeds Act was the subject of a lengthy discussion at a meeting of the Advisory Board of Agriculture on Wednesday, when a committee was appointed to submit a scheme to the Minister of Agriculture whereby the administration of the Act would be carried out by Government offi cials, instead of by the local governing bodies, as at present. AUSTRALIAN FRUIT KEPOB.T. The latest report of the Trade Commis sioner in London states that the market for Australian fruit is somewhat firmer. The earlier consignments of Australian apples arrived in London during the cc-al strike, and this fact, together ,with the presence of large supplies from Nova Scotia and Canada was responsible for low prices .
