SPRAYING FOR BLACK SPOT. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 23 December 1914

SPRAYING FOR BLACK SPOT. Tho ollicioncy of spraying against black spot ill tbo apple 'Slid pear de pends vory greatly upon doing it at the light Lime. Tiie object, as explained by Professor -UcAlpinu, is to attack the spurts, just as tliey are putting forth their delieato genu tubes, socking to penetrate tho young and growing tis sues of tho plant. The tinio at which this occurs depends on tho naturo ol the season, which hastens or retards the development of tho fungus, as it does that of the tree itself. It has been discovered that tho germinating spore has a certain solvent action upon the dried deposits of copper compound left by the Bordeaux of copper-soda mixture, and in fact tho process of germination itself sets free tho poison wliich kills tho spores that arc in con tact with it. Thns by spraying too early, when tho treo is quite dormant, we are applying fungicido before it is wanted, and subjecting it to the in liueuce of rain and other agecliies which may wash it oil'.

Interesting Drama. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 23 December 1914

Interesting Drama. Our Church of England friends staged an interesting drama at the Mechanics' Hall last evening. The attendance was not aa largo as could have been wished, but this no doubt was caused by the threatening thunderstorm. The drama was entitled "Turn Him Out," and the characters were taken by Messrs Fitzgerald (Nico demus Nobbs), Pidgeon (Mackin tosh Moke), Gordon (Eglantine Rowley), Anderson and Redgen 'porters), and Misses Gross (Julia Moke's wife) and Roberts (Susan, a maid of all work). Th» piece was splendidly staged, and the scene was a drawing-room in a suburban villa. The charac ters were well sustained. Miss Roberts made an excellent maid of all work, and with her lover, Nobbs, a pedlar, who made a good " chucker-out," was a great T success. Miss Gross carried out her part perfectly. Moke, her husband, owing to his endeavor^ • to give his wife a surprise, found himself in an awkward dilemma and was three times thrown out of his own home by Nobbs before the mist...

Last week the members of the Country Roads Board, Messrs Calder (chairman) and Fricke, visited Kerang and were inter viewed by representatives of the Kerang Shire Council consisting of Crs T. P. Hogan (president), P. J. O'Donnell, M. Peacock and W. Radclift'e, and Mr D. G. Rat tray, secretary. The members of the Board fully explained the sections of the Act to the Council representatives, who finally de cided, with the Board's approval, that in view of the nature of the road-making material available in the district, it would not prove of any advantage to the Council to have works carried out by the Board, it being considered that the latter body would not be able to do any more than the Council has done in the past. It was made clear that in ths event of the Council desiring at any time to avail themselves of the provi sions of the Act, the Board would be perfectly willing to meet them. Decentralisation.
