"SCATTER PLENTY O'ER A SMILING LAND." [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 4 February 1915
•SCATTER PLENTY O'ER A SMIL ING LAND." 1'uring the last l'cw mouths there has been much talk of introducing radical laud reforms, which, iu the ex uberant language of prominent poli ticians, will '4scatter plenty o'er a smiling land," and such optimism— calculated optimism mar we say—cer tainly raises a smile on tho face of practical men who know that a "get rich quick" policy is not likely in agriculture to lead to the anticipated result*. Land reforms of the right kind arc not to be deprecatcd, but farmers may well say ''save us from our friends," i if .so-called reforms are to be trans lated iuto an Act without being iirst subjected to careful consideration. By the force of natural laws, more powerful than legislation, agriculture has got out of the deep rut of depres sion, in "which it stuck for so long, and is advancing gradually and >urely to greater prosperity. The era of cheap food, sold below the cost of production in this country, has passed away, not to return, because...
STIMULATING THE IMAGINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 4 February 1915
STIMULATING THE IMAGINA TION. John Jarvis was a native of Dublin whore he practiced the art of paint ing on glass for some time, and theu removed to London, where lie soon gained for himself a high reputation. The following anecdote was related of him: — When the bacchanalian propensi i ties of Jarvis had rendered him an unequal, if not an unsafo, artist, he was employed by a gentleman to paint his wife's portrait—a miracle of plainness—under the stipulation that a pint of wine 'at a single sitting must be the extent of his potations. Jarvis assented, and in a short time produced a perfect facsimile of the lady. On exhibiting it to the husband, he seemed disappointed. ".Couldn't youhave done it," said he to the painter, "a little leaa—that is, couldn't you. give it ;v little more—" »1£ you expoct UK!," responded Jui'vis, seeing &lt;"lio husband's drift, at once, "to make n handsome portrait of your wife, I must Invyo more tlwui a pint of wine at a sitting.

BELGIAN POMOLOGISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 4 February 1915
BELGIAN POMOLOGISTS. We aro largely indebted to Belgium for man}- of our finest fruits, more especially pears. If we glance down a Melbourne catalogue we find a goodly number of names which indicate thoir origin. For hundreds of years the Belgians have been noted for their hor ticulture, especiall}' in the branch of pomology, and the gardens of the world have been enriched by the vari eties of l'ruit.s raised in brave little Belguim. The father ot' pomology in Belgium is generally reckoned to be Abbe Har denpoint, who was born at Hons in 1755, and received his education at the University of Louvain. His most fam ous seedlings were pears Cllou Mor ceaus and Bonne Itance. Both of these are widely cultivated. I'assa Oolinar is another line pear when grown on warm soil. In 17S7 M. (Japiaumont, a chemist at lions, raised from a seed of the Calebasse pear the variety which still bears his name. The fertility and hardiness of this fruit have led to its cultivation in many countries, and it...
