RAND RAILWAY STRIKE. There Averc serious extensions of. the railway strike on Mondaj-. Half ? the men "employed at the Salt "River raihva*- workshops' (Cape Province) left their ?work, and at Durban the Amalgamated Engineers and all the; employees at the raihvay workshops came out.

The Flower Garden. [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 15 January 1914
The Flower Garden. The principal operations at this sea son consist of the continuance of surface, cultivation, watering when necessary, and staking and training growing plants. Where water is needed it should be applied thorough ly. a light surface sprinkling being of little use and often decidedly harmful, as roots are encouraged too near the surface, when they will be injured by cultivation. A good soaking is neces sary and the surface should be brok en finely again as it is drying. Plains that specially need water during hot weather are those newly planted and surface rooting kinds, such as ericas and azaleas. When free growth is being made the plants should not be allowed to suffer from want of water, but those with matured foliage rarely require it at this season, except under specially severe conditions. Plants such as violets, primroses, and other winter and spring flowering species, require no water, being in a state of comparative rest at this season, and keeping these pla...
