TATURA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
TATURA. Tlae harvest is all over, and much or tne grain has been carted to the station. The price has lowered to about 3/2. Most of it is a good sample, but there is some, pro bably owing to rust, which is very pinched and weighs very light. Some eight bushel bags only weigh 1651bs. Federation has taken the pride of place both in the amount pur chased and in the produce per acre, but since other wheats are being tested as Yandilla King and Bunyip (hay), only a small por tion was threshed, mainly of oats, and the results were only fair. All through the season boisterous winds have prevailed, resulting in serious loss - in some kinds of wheat like Steinwedel, but Federation stood the test well. There are complaints as to the latter running out, but fresh seed can be got either from Dookie or Wyuna farms at a reasonable price. Owing to the size 'and the depth of the Waranga Lake large waves arise and beat on th8 stone facing of the north bank. So fierce have these been lately that a fe...
MORNINGTON PENINSULA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
MORNTN-5TO'N PENINSULA. Grchardists. nurserymen, ana iuuai . v«i&&lt;= table growers would benefit greatly if a good rain fell at an early date. -The ground is drying out rapidly under the seasonable con ditions which have prevailed during the past few weeks. Grass is drying up rapidly, and there is a big reduction in their yields this month. Maize and millet are beiing freely used to re place the deficient qualities in the pastures. "ivfJlllet is found far superior to maize in maintaining the milk yield. Vegetables are very scarce here at present, but there will soon be abundance of young cabbages available. The young plants arc growing very rapidly, and are turning into heart already. So far the fields are mostly clean and free from fly or blight. Budding has started In the nurseries. The stocks have grown well, ana are budding freely ' at present. One-year-old trees are still growing, and will make nice stock for next season. A local fruit case mill is cutting spl...
COUNTRY NEWS [?]LOWA [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS IIJ^OfWA Threshing is almost completed. The grain crops are turning out poorly, the yields being much below expectations. Forty bushels to the acre is t»he highest yield of barley threshed. Thirty bushels was the average last season, 50 and 60 bushels to the acre being then quite common, A large percentage of the malting barley is blighted, and for this there is absolutely no demand except at feed prices.. A few -plump samples have been sold at 3/ and 3/1. Oats are also dull, although prices have advanced during the week; 1/10 has been paid for gcod samples, which is regarded as full value on the basis of Melbourne prices. Ne'tli r bar ley ..nor oats can be produced profitably in this district at the prices stated. Potatoes have advanced 7/6 per ton during 'the past few days, aud the market at present is firm at £2 per ton. Deliveries are light, and will be while prices remain low. This eale of £2 per ton does not leave much far tfre grower, as potatoes are a...
SMUT IN WHEAT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
SMUT IN WHEAT In his report on the Nhill farm competitions, Mr A. E. V. Richardson says: Bluestone is the most reliable all round pickle for the control of bunt though, of course, it interferes with the vitality of the seed, and delays germination slightly. But there was much evidence of guess work, and rule of thumb in the methods of pickling, and in all such cases smut was in variably detected in the crops. Solu tions of definite concentration should be used, and not arbitrary measures like a handful of bluestone to a bag of seed, with sufficient water to wet the seed well. The more careful farmers use definite strengths, e.g., l%-21bs of blustone to 10 gallons of water, or, in the case of formalin, lib. of fungicide to 45 gallons of water, and immersion to take place for 4-5 minutes. Care should always be taken, too, to avoid the use of smutty seed.

WANGARATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
wangaratta. Harvesting is about completed in this dis trict, and wheat carting to the various mills and stations is in full swing. Th« season has been above the average, good yields being obtained in wheat and oats throughout every part of the North-East. The average yield has been estimated by several experts at about 8 bags to the acre. Federation and Yandilla King were the wheats most favored by district farmers. Federation was not the success it was last year in the Boorhaman district, showing a tendency to take rust as compared with other wheats. The best results were obtained from fallowed land, some paddocks yielding to 12 bags per acre. There is a large area under fallow at the present time, the continued dry weather preventing further operations in this respect. Summer fodders on the Agricultural High School Farm, with the aid of irrigation, are looking well, there being a good supply of green fodder available. Dry weather has affected the dairy farmers, there being a -decr...
YACHTING [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
YACHTING By "YAWL." Chief events of the week have been the Oeelong annual regatta and the race for class boats to Geelong in connection with the re gatta. The regatta and the race each proved highly successful, and keen interest was taken in both. Twenty-eight boats had entered for the race, and they all started with the exception of two. The boats were sent away on their beat handicaps on January 24. A strong nor therly wind was blowing when Orient was despatched at 8 a.m. The wind continued strong until about one o'clock, when it worked into the west and fell a little. As Ariel was crossing the line, one of her crew was struck with the boom, and knocked over board. He. however, managed to grasp a rope, and after scaie little delay was hauled on board. .just as" Fancy got going nicely part of the jaws of her gaff carried away, and before tilings were made secure she had lost some minutes.

NOTES ON ACETYLENE LAMPS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
NOTES ON ACETYLENE LAMPS .Aimough electric lighting is rapidly becom ing the medium of illumination on motor cars, especialiy those of high power and such as are ntted with luxurious bodies for town use. it is not every car owner who can go to the expense of such an installation. There is t?i i9, *ar&e number of motorists whose vehicles are fitted with a set of acetylene lamps that have given such satisfactory re sults that the owners do not feel inclined to discard them. There is no doubt that a good set of acetylene lamps, with an equally .good generator, is capable of forming a re liable lighting equipment if the requisite care anti attention be given to it. It may be useful to devote a few lines to some of the troubles that are sometimes met with in connection with acetylene lamps, and the steps to _be taken to resnove them. It is the generator that requires the principal atten tion, as the lime deposit should be thoroughly cleaned out before it has time to become hard, ...

AUSTRALASIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
AUSTRALASIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS The eleventh "biennial Australasian cnam pionship meeting was held at the Amateur Sports Ground, Melbourne, on Saturday and Monday, January 24 and 26. In numbers and representation It was easily the most im portant gathering of the kind that has taken place, and the Quality of the competitors was particularly high. They came from New Zealand and every State in the Common wealth, save W'est Australia, and, in addi tion, a team of four picked American ath letes took part. Much requires tp be done* to the Amateur Sports Ground to bring it up to the require ments of a meeting of this importance, but, whatever its shortcomings from the point of view of grandstand accommodation and con veniences it leaves nothing to be desired in the matter of tracks. The Victorian Amateur Athletic Association wisely made these a first consideration, and the result amply " justifies the expenditure.
