DEMAND FOR FRUIT IN EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 March 1914
DEMAND FOR FRUIT IN EUROPE. Professor Wiokson, of the University of California., who has recently returned from an official visit to the Old World says there is no hope of the old coun tries over producing sufficient fruit for their own requirements. Coming from an irresponsible writer , esh a statement might be regarded as ex travagant, but the reputation of Pro :fetsor Wickson as author of a standard work on fruit-growing and Editor of the Pacific Rural Press is too high for a .tatement of his to be passed lightly by. In an editorial note, he expres ses his satisfaction at finding on his return that the fruit industry in his own state is still buoyant, and goes on to say: -"This impresses us all the more after seeing how short the old countries and this country east of the rocky mountains are of their needs in producing fruit locally and in the hope of ever doing it. We did not see fruit enough to satisfy a mongoose in all our travels. If the critic says we were too early in the s...

EFFECTIVE SHEEP DIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 March 1914
EFFECTIVE SHEEP DIPPING. The chief inspector of stock in South Australia points out that "there is abundant proof that only poisonous powder dips effectually destroy vermin, and give a reasonable period of protec tion from re-infection. It is the boast of many that they have put large num bers of sheep through the dipping baths dipuing must be condemned as wasteful and ineffctive, because sheep dipped in this manner soon become reinfected. Owners must abandon the hurry-skurry method, and see that sheep are soaked for not less than one minute. All must realise that carbolic dipping fluids will not destroy lice or attord any lasting protection agianst re-infection. The annual loss to owners who have neg lected to keep their flocks clean has been immense."
CRICKET. DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. MARYBOROUGH PREMIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 March 1914
CRICKET. (NoTEs BY ORTHos.) DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. MARYBOROUGH PREMIERS. The District Association competi tion came to an end on Saturday, when Maryborough, by defeating Havelock, definitely established their claim to the premiership for 1913-14, and became possessors of the hand some cup donated by Mr W. S. M'Nee. The premiers have won out fairly and are deserving of congratu lation. Voice was given this senti ment on Saturday by the captain of the Havelock team, H. E. Morgan, who, at the luncheon adjournment, took occasion to congratulate Mary borough on their win. They had, he said, played in a sportsmanlike manner, not only during this season, but previously. There was no doubt Maryborough had done a lot for the game itself, and had not run among other clubs taking away the best players, and thereby weakening already weak teams. In acknowledging these remarks on behalf of Maryborough, the cap tain (E. S. Herring) intimated that his club always liked to see things as even as possi...

THE OVAL MATCH. SOME GOOD BATTING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 March 1914
THE OVAL MATCH. SOME GOOD BATTING. As this game stood, Havelock were all out for 46, and Maryborough had lost two for 56. Continuing, they ran the score to 159, and then closed with 7 wickets down. E. S. Herring topped the score by carrying his bat for a sound 54, and the strong Haberle hit up a vigorous 48. In one over he twice hit W. Hawke for six, one striking a tree high up. Two other noticeable incidents were a I very smart left-handed slip-catch by A. C. Chivers, and an excellent ball from W. Hawke that beat and bowled Stevens. In their second hand, Havelock opened badly, but did better later. Shebler made a useful 16, when he was caught by Lardner, who sur prised himself and everyone else by taking the ball one hand--the other being in his pocket. Morgan made a nice 41, and Whitmore struck form again, and carried his bat for a sound 51. He and T. Batty put on over O6 runs. Davey led the bowl ing with 6 for 25. Scores : HAVELOCK.

SULPHUR AS A FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 March 1914
SULPHUR AS A FERTILISER. E xperiments carried out bot'h in Ger many and in France confirm recent re ports as to the fertilising action of flow ers of sulphur upon the soil. In the SGerman trials a dressing of 90 ib per acre, applied in February, a short time before the crops were . sown, had a beneficial effect, upon briley and rye. The treated portions of the crops wero stronger, and had a brijlhtcr green co lor than the uiitre'atcd ; but no account of the difference in yield is given. The Frenoh experiments" were intended to . throw light upon the cause of the for . tilising action of sulphur. The ca'use .has been said to bo the destruction of injurious bacteria in the soil, and the conclusion oi the investigators agrees that this is partly ~ he case. But it is ooncluded also thatb the chemical action of the sulphur has some effect. Sul phuric acid is gradually formed, and this not only suplii. sulphur to the plants, but also limips to dissolve mineral ele ments in the soil.
OUT OF EMPTY AIR. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 March 1914
OUT OF EMPTY AIR. Mysterious showers of animals and other organisms from the empty air have occurred at various times, through all the ages. The latest is a shower of.small fish which occurred in Quir indi; N.S.W., on the 13th of last month;:specimens collected for investi gation -proved to be freshwater "hardy head," or species of small fish common to the Murray and Began watersheds. Man similar-instances are recorded in which the showers consisted of frogs, worms, fish, "blood," snails, bread and other substanoes or creatures. Once a small turtle was found as the nucleus of a hailstorml. A shower of new hay which fell: from a heavy black cloud happened in Ireland in 1875. A French m.eteorologist, M. Pelier, states that he once saw a multitude of small toads descend to the earth. They fell on his hat and hands, and the ground was 'overed with them. In 1833, near Naples, a whirlwind passed over an orange grove and the result was an unexpected free distribution of fruit among a numbe...

RACING. MARYBOROUGH CLUB. A general meeting of the Mary- borough Race Club was held on Friday evening, the President (Mr R. J. Whittaker) presiding over a good attendance.

Re- ceipts were shown amounting to £132 9s 6d, and expenditure total- ling £126 10s 7d, a credit balance of £5 18s 1d remaining. In view of adverse circumstances attendant on the meeting, this result was regarded as very satisfactory. There was some discussion regard- ing the wisdom of holding a meeting in June. Messrs J. Moran and J. G. Moore moved that the proposed meeting be abandoned. Messrs C. Holzigal and G. Stewart moved an amendment that the meeting be held. The amendment was carried. The club starter (Mr H. Deady, sen.). reported favorably on the Avery starting gate tried at the last meeting, and it was agreed to pur- chase one.
