COST OF BAGS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 30 January 1914
COST OF BAGS We have received a copy of a circular issued by Mr T. Langdon, who was chairman of the Wheat Commission, in which 'he wri.er comments on the fail ure of the Government to take any action on the Commission's report, and deals with the heavy loss entailed to farmers by having to bag their produce. The inaction of the Government is only in accordance with the general rule. When there is a public agitation for any public reform the appointment of a Royal Commission is a simple way of allaying the disturbance. It is expen sive, eertainly, but it takes responsibi lity off the shoulders of ti'.'Gavernment for a time. I-du time, or overdue time, the report of the Commission comes in and merely details certain facts that were well known to experts before. The report is promptly pigeon. holed, and that is the last there is of it until some try ublesome fellow stirs the matter up later on and perhaps necessi tates the app .intment of another Corn mission or of a board of high-sala...

Apple Packing. PROPER PICKING ESSENTIAL FOR PERFECT PACKING. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 30 January 1914
' Apple Packing. PROPER PICKING ESSENTIAL FOR v ;IFECT PACKING. It frequently requires a nice judg ment to determine the proper time for picking apples. If picked too soon the fruit will be undersized and poorly col ored, thus injuring seriously both its quality and appearance in the pack age. If allowed to hang on too long, its keeping quality is munpaired and danger of loss by. high winds is multi plied. No definite rule can be .laid down as to time of picking. When the fruit, on being twisted one-half around will snap cleanly from the spur withouz breaking the stem, it should be picked. Red apples are usually picked when they have assumed a normal colour, and yellow apples when they have at tained the proper size and the seeds become browned. There are great dif ferences, however, between varieties. The Jonathan must be picked as soon as colored or it will not keep in stor age, the Red Astrachan becomes mealy and often cracks when left for even t day or two after colouring, the M...
