FRUIT TREE PRUNING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 1 June 1910
FRUIT TREE PRUN — ING. To the' orchardist who takes a serious and studious view of his occupation, any new information relating to pruning is always welcome news. Therefore, the publication entitled ' A Practical Text book for Fruitgrowers,' 'prepared by George Quinn, Horticultural Instructor for the Department of Agriculture in South Australia, should find a ready sale amongst the fruit-growing community.

The trees that suffered the worst from its attacks were peaches and the Japanese varieties of plums. Apples took it badly sometimes, and pears worse. The best remedies for woolly aphis wero tho resin and soda or tobacco and soap washes, but every thing depended on the manner in which they were applied. The spraying should bo done in the winter, and the spray applied in a solid stream with all the force that could be got. There were thousands of trees in Tasmania whose roots wero in a rotten mass of woolly ai.his, and no matter how carefully the top was treated, the trees would never be free from tho pest as long as t...

Constable Barclay saw a num ber of women at the corner of Exhibition street and Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, the other evening. One appeared to be dancing. The constable noted this for future reference. A little later he saw the same crowd m Latrobe street. One of them was certainly dancing. It appeared to be a mixture of the sword dance and the haka. Constable Barclay crossed the street, and observed that, though the dancer ' wore a grey, blouse and skirt, a lady's ulster, an'd a fur boa* a well-marked moustache was per ceptible against a face which had been obviously blackened with burnt cork. He, therefore, took the dancer to the City Watch house.: ' . . ' - 'I don't know what it is,' he said to the 'sergeant in charge, 'but you might lock it up on a chargfe of offensive behaviour.'

Limitations in Fruit Culture. Multiplicity of Varieties Condemned. THE TRIES SORTS BEST. The Director of Agriculture (Mr Ben son) is uncompromising in his condemna tion of the practice- common amongst Tasmanian orchardists of growing a very large number of different varities of fruit. When in the Huon recently he made reference to this matter, and in the course of an address at New Norfolk on Friday last he again had something to say upon it. He said he1 had found this practice existent in many districts, and particularly in the new orchards on the Tamar. There were far too many varie ties grown, and too much rubbish. . The sooner that all unmarketable varieties were got rid of the better. They should not trust nurserymen, who sent round prettily -painted catalogues, but stick to the varities of proved value. There, had been a good time throughout the world in gelling novelties, and a new crop of .duffers was raised - every year who bought novelties, and kept nurserymen going, (Laug...
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 1 June 1910
OUR MELBOURNE ./. letter. ; (From our own Correspondent.) An animated debate on the desirability of introducing tho curfew law into Mel bourne took place at the Austral Salon a night or two ago, under the auspices of the National Council of Women, Mrs Presley quoted fact3 and figures, mostly culled from the experiences of the United States. In the States the curfew has been established in 5000 towns. Legal dignitaries, as well as mayors, police superintendents and teachers speak with much warmth on its advantages. They report a reduction of from 50 to 70 per cent, of the arrests of juveniles for different sins of insubordination. One eminent lawyer says no girl of sixteen has reached the police courts from a curfew town, while the moral effect of the law has been strikingly satisfactory in all ways. In spite of the excellent arguments in favor of curfew in America, many delegates, as well as. associates, showed themselves in little sympathy with introducing a measure here that would...
