THE FARM HANDLING SOIL FOR PRODUCTION. EXTENT OP PLANT-ROOT SYSTEMS AND THEIR GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

THE FARM HANDLING SOIL FOR PKOBS0- ' TION. EXTENT OP PLANT-ROOT SYS TEMS AND THEIR GROWTH. If on8 pulls up a wheat plant as it is approaching maturity he finds at tached to the crown of the plant a number of roots of various sizes only a few inches in length. Unless he is a skilled botanist, he concludes that these are all the roots the plant has, and that through these the plant derives its soil nourishment. Accord ingly he comes to the conclusion that wheat is a shallow-rooted plant. TRUNK LINES, NOT FEEDING ROOTLETS. These roots, however, furnish the plant no part of its nourishment ; they are merely the trunk lines which receive the plant nourishment from the feeding rootlets and take it to the growing tissues of the plants ; they are merely carriers, not gather ers, of plant food. The feeding root lets, by means of which the plant gathers its soil nourishment, were broken off and left in the soil when the plant was lifted. Since the plant derives its nourishment from the soil i...

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS ODD. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS ODD. The Eiffel Tower has just cele brated its twenty-fifth birthday. The great structure, which is over 900ft. high, has now. become qu'i^e a part of Paris, but when it was first erected there was a storm of protests, and such well-known names in the world of art as Gounod, Leconte de Lisle, Coppee, Bonnat, and Macpaussant signed a petition against it. The tower is extraordinary light for its size, and for many years the belief \v"as persistent that one fine morning it would be found levelled to the ground. The result is that the Champ de Mars district of Paris has only just been really laid out and. built oil. People have forgotten their fears now, and ?are ready to live in tho shadow of the Eiffel Tower. ' A prominent motor-car manufac turer. had the idea of naming his cars after flowers. Said he to a friend , "I think of calling that new^car over there," pointing to a huge red limousine, "the Crimson Ramble." But his friend, who had been out in the indicated ca...

Selecting a Maid of Honour. HOW THE POST IS FELLED. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

Selecting a f$aid of ir. 4. HOW THE POST IS FELLED. Dating back to the end of the sixteenth century, when James I. appointed four ."'damsels of clear birth and good breeding " to tend on his Consort, under the direc tin of a "dowager of discretion" a personage often called "the Mother the Maids," a post long since abolished-the position of Maid of Honour is a much-coveted one. In deed, the Hon. Sybil Cadogan, ap pointed a Maid of Honour by Queen Mary, was one of over 100 girls who were hopefully waiting to be chosen to fill the vacancy. The privileges and advantages at tached to the position are many, but a Maid of Honour must of ne cessity be an exceedingly accom plished young woman. In the first place she must be a grand-daughter of a peer, if not nearer in blood; for, unless some special provision is made, the office cannot be held by anyone below that rank. Secondly, she must be a good linguist, not only because of the foreigners she will meet at Court, but because she will be c...

LIMIT OF COURTESY. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

LIMIT OF COURTESY Japan's new Prime Minister, Count Okuina, has a wooden leg. It replaces a limb which was blown ! off by the bomb of a political as sassin. In connection with that outrage, a story is told which goes j far to support the claim that is made for Okuma that he is the best mannered man in Japan. After the I explosion, which had killed his ser vants and horses, besides shattering his leg, he was lying in his oflice in an agony of pain, yet he was able to say smilingly to a foreign statesman who was taking leave of him, "Excuse me, sir. for my im politeness in not seeing you to the I door." -"Pall Mall Oazette."
