WATERGLASS, Frank T, Shutt, chemist, of tho Expoerimental Farm, Ottawa, writes: "For the past five seasons we have .oompared Ihmo-water with 'water-glass' solution, with the inviriablo result that the former preserves the eggs at least equally as well as t'ho latter, I'akl injg into considoratioa quality, flavour, and appearance, we have adjudged the lime-water l)preserved eggs unsurpassed by any kept by the many and various methodls that we have had under trial. We do not believo that eggs can be stored by any method and have thQ fla vour of the fresh-laid article-at least, lthat is our experience, and it is a large eoe. If you wish to add salt to the lime-wateor, do not use moro than 1 lb to 10 gallons. Some' of our re sults seoomed to show that tlhii quantity was an unimprovement, bUt larger im ounts most certainly affected the flavor of the egg, Uso only fresh quioklliales in making tihe limno-water.

LUCERNE—METHODS OF CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 31 January 1914

LUCERNE-METHODS OF CULTURE, Lucerne is a porenuial plant, and once well establislhed will last a number of years--from four to ten, or more, deending upon the charactor of the Sand'treatment of the plant in re feronce to manuring and methods ot outting. The mature plant is a vigor ous feeder, its roots often penetrating to a depth of lOft. or more. Its up right stems do not sprout on outting, but die back to tlhe crown, from which now shoots start immediately and grow rapidly. This accounts for the faet that from three to five outtings can be harvested annually, Lucerno is adaptet to a wide range of soil, provided the subsoil is open and porous, and well supplied with lime. 'Vhe most favourable soil, however, is a deep loam, preferably sandy in nature, overlying a not too compact subsoil, Gaood drainago is highly essential, and on soils overi'lying 'heavy clay or hard pan subsoils great care must be taken to provido free escape of. surfaoo water.

MENTONE [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 31 January 1914

MENTON B A oharge of a serious offence being attempted on a local boy of tender years is to be preferred against an elderly man' at the Cheltenham court next Wednesday. Constable Frioker arrested a man on Wednesday who gave the name of Thomas Pearson, on a charge.of vagrancy, He has used the names of Wilson and. Robinson on some occasions, and is to appear at the Cheltenham court on Wednesday nfxt. * The first evidence of a new station is at present to be seen. A signal box is being erected on the " down side, near Balcombe road, It is in tended to operate the gates at tha* spot from the box, consequently Mrs Robinson will probably be found a new position.

The Methodist Church celebrated their first anniversary last Sunday in the Reoreation Hall, and good attendanoes were seen at each ser vice, A fi...

"AUSTRALIA UNLIMITED." -+---·----· A glance at the figures which Irri gationists have to pay for land and water. in other countries shows us under what benign conlditions their lot is cast in Australia, Elxp)rts, after minute investigations both here and abroad, unhesitatingly aver that the Commonwealth offers the irrigationist opportunities second to none, while the land and water are comparative ly. chieap here. Western America leads the way in orcharding, the apples of the Hood River and Spokane districts being the finest in the world, This success is not attributabfe to any particular superiority of land, but to the scien tiflc and complete system of culture to which the growers there have at tained, Many of those orchards are, and have been for years, under irrigation, but it is in their system of grading that the farmers are pre-eminent, Colour as well as size must beto a recognised standard, and by thinning the trees they keep them well open, thus insuring a good colour as we...

THE LIMITATIONS OF ARTESIAN BORES. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 31 January 1914

THE LI?IITATIONS OF ARTE. SIN BORES. ---+ It has now been proved beyond dis puto that the subterranean water sup. ply of Australia dillfers in no wise from the bores of other countries, and that if an undue and extravagant use is made'of the water, nature quickly retaliates by cutting off the supply, and the bore becomes dry and useless, In New South Wake and Quemns land, careful investigation has shown i?lite an alarming diminution in the underground water supply during the lst two years. The popular Imagina tlon credits an underground reservoir with offering an unfailing ani unliml tf'd chance of watering a dry and thirsty lanI for all eternity, and therefore, unless the risk is seriously "nlerstoodl the settler is likely to nbuse and overwork his fountain of s~upply. No artesian bore in the world holds -au inexhaustlblh supply, and it is vital that in a young country like Australia, whose closer settlement .nd intense culture schemes are only !uin their infancy, that the very sou...

T_? Cheltenham Progress Associa tion is again Utired" It has had a precarious existence ever since its inception, Some months ago a formal resuscitation ceremony took place, but apparently the efforts were not maintained suff oiently long, for it promptly passed out of existence. Some peop'e will no doubt feel thankful for such an event happening, but the peculiar situation of the township, being in three ridings of the Moorabbin shire, warrants the existence of such an organisation if only from a mnnicipal point of view. A distinct move is observable both in the township and its immediate sur roundings. Land is selling more freely than it has for a long time, and houses are being erected. Still the cry comes for more dwellings. Tuder such conditions a Progress Association is almost a necessity and any resident who desires to be classed even if to only a small ex tent as progressive, should welcome the means offered thereby, to shoulder his share of mutiicipal responsibility, There ...
