The Nhill Free Press WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED THE "NHILL MAIL." TUESDAY, 12TH MAY. The Coming Fray. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 12 May 1914
'he Ihi Free fress With which is Incorporated thh "Nhill Mail." TUESDAY, 12th MAY, The Coming Fray, ON Wednesday evening the long drawn out debates on Mr Fisher's censure motion came to an end, and the division was taken. The expected happened. Ministers were acquitted on the casting vote of the Speaker, and so far as Mr Cook and his col leagues can shape events, the House of Representatives is entering on the last vital act in a curious Parlia mentary drama. How long the Senate may chooso to protract its part in that act, what attitude the Governor will assume when the actual climax is reached, it is useless to surmise. The outstanding fact is that there may bo a double dissolu tion in a very few weeks, and for such a happening Liberal forces must be ready. It is prudent then to fore cast as accurately as may be on what grounds the battle is likely to be fought. The task is not a difficult one. The question ot electoral reform wilt play a comparatively small part; a proposal to int...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 12 May 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. ■When cleaning windows, add two tablespooufuls of vinegar to tho water J and -the windows will remain clean and bright longer. .Before applying blacklead to a greasy grate, remove all soot from tho back of the grato with a pad of soft eloth. jl't can then bo polished quickly and easily. To prevent children's cotton, or mus lin clothes from catching liro, add one ounce of aliim to the last water in -which they are rinsed. This will make them quite non-inflammable. • To prevent rusty grates, mix the blacklead with turpentine instead of water. Give a good coat of this, pol ish well, and tho grate will retain a beautiful brilliancy for an indefinite jfciine. When curtain-pins have been in use for some time they are apt to become rusty. To remedy this, lot them stand for a few minutes in a cup of water to which a little ammonia has been added. Then take out and rub well.

[TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. According to the statistics published (says the Mark Lane Express) there were in England last year 244,831 acres classed as orchards. "Wo tire sorry to say' wo cannot so# of "cultivated orchards, because the mistaken idea seems to have prevailed to a great ox that/1 orchards and pastures con get along alright without attention or as sistance ; that kind Nature las en dowed them with the power of con tinuing to extract nourishment from a soil sucked dry by means of crop ping. The result) of such a paradox is visible in the poverty stricken con dition of many orchards and pastures. It is pleasant to record that a change for tlief better is gradually taking place. It is being recognised that when fruit trees of a good cias3 are grown, and sprayed and pruned, orch ards become! a source of profit not to be despised. It is essential that the trees, if espeoted to produoe abund ant crops of good fruit, should be sup plied with nourishment, to compen sate the...

GEOLOGY OF MT ARAPILES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 12 May 1914
GEOLOGY OF MT ARAPILES. The following is a brief resume of the address given by Mr S. H. Tyres, head teaoher of the Lorquon Sohool, on a very interesting subject of how Mount Arapiles was formed. Geologists, Mr Tyers said, who had studied the question had not beau successful in finding any fossils in the shape of shells, so that they could arrivo at "the age of the Mount,which was oomposed of Bandstone chiefly courso deposits, consolidated, in parts, into quattzifce. There were no signs of volcanic aotion, and undoubtedly the rock was caused by enormous side pressure. The Mount must have been thousands of feet high to allow of 'so tight a pressure to form into the solid rock which was now Been. Coarse sediments allowed rain water to perco" lato and dissolve the hard parts of fossils, which are composed ohiefly of lime. The material had not been transported far, as the grains and en closed portions of quartz were not much waterworn. It was a secondary or stratified rock, and containe...
