A Substantial Culvert. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
A Substantial Culvert. Mr. W. TL Binstead, engineer to Ilornsby Sliire Council, has prepared a plan of a white-ant-proof culvert, which he has submitted to his coun cil. The abutments are to be of stone, dressed on its bedding surfaces only. The span provided for in the design is six feet. No timber will be used, but instead thereof old railway rails will be substituted. The static load of each rail is calculated at 12 tons. Between each rail is curved galvanis ed iron, on which rests the decking, composed of a layer of concrete, mix ed in the proportion of one part of cement, two of sand, and four of broken metal. On this bed will be a layer of ballast, and then a dress ing of broken metal. The culvert will be practically indestructible. With a few modifications, the rails could be so arranged as to carry a decking of timber, instead of concrete.

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
NOTES. Prudent King received a fine ad vertisement 011 Saturday. Cadonia won for him at Randwick, Artful Lady won the Nursery at Brisbane, with 9.5, and Wiseman (Prudent King-Grandmaster mare), won a double at Wallsend. These successes Avitli the yearling sales on, come at ail opportune time. The Combadello stud provided first and second in the Sydney Cup, and also the winner of the Nursery at Randwick on Monday. Kyadgerie, one of Sir Foote's best sons, has finally retired from the turf, and will take up stud duties. Very large entries have been re ceived by City Tattersall's for their meeting at Randwick next week. Blairgour, the brilliant Wallace colt, has been sore since R. Bren nan took him in hand. He really needs a short spell in order to throw it off. He would probably be seen to advantage now in soft going, despite his soreness. The A.J.C. Autumn meeting will conclude on Saturday. The feature of the afternoon's racing will be the meeting of Trafalgar, Comedy King, and Lady M...
Athletics. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
Athletics. Jack Donaldson, the wonderful Vic torian runner, has regained the world's supremacy. He met Hohvay, the Ame rican, who defeated him in England, a year ago, for the title, at Bendigo (Vic.), last week, and in a 100 yards7 sprint, Donaldson won by nearly three years, in 10 2-5 seconds. Donaldson is a wonderful runner, undoubtedly the fastest in the world to-day over all distances up to 220. The Postle of old njight beat Donald son over 50, 75, or 100 yards, but beyond the latter distance Donald son would have matters all his own way. Postle and Donaldson will probably meet in a match over 100 yards at an early date, and it will be worth travelling many miles barefooted to see. There was some great sport at Stawell (Vic.) on Saturday last. In the Easter Gift of 120 yards, Postle failed by about a yard to run into a place, although he made under even time. P. Donaldson, in his heat, put up a wonderful performance. Con ceding Peacock 12 yards, he had re duced the gap to four y...

Harry Pearce will again defend his title of champion of Australia, on Saturday afternoon, when he meets Syd. Kemp, on the Parx-amatta River, for £100 aside, and an equal divi sion of the "gate." Pearce has won five races in succession for the Aus tralian championship, and it looks as. though tne match wiui ivemp will also be won by the champion. The match is for £100 aside. W. Fogwell has challenged the win ner of the match to a race for the championship, and has lodged a £25 deposit to prove his bonn-fides.
Boxing. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
Boxing. The .-tiale-Cliewey Williams fight at tlie Stadium, on Wednesday, April 13 was without doubt the poorest exhi bition yet seen at Sydney's fight arena. Male won in four rounds, the towel coming in from Williams's cor ner. Williams, had the appearance of a man who had not grained a day for the fight. At the end of the first round lie was blowing like a grampus although tnere had been very little doing. At the end of the second round, it was seen that Williams could not last much longer, for his condition had then almost petered out. In the third he went down to a light blow on the jaw, and although he could have risen,, he intended to take the count, when the gong clang ed and "corners" robbed xiale of the fight there and then. At the end of the fourth round Williams threw in the towel. It was a sorry exhibition, and Williams : did not lanu a blow on tlie -winner. It was a very poor house that wit nessed the fight-not more than 200 and the crowd was glad' to see the end of it....

RE DIVIDING FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
RE DIVIDING FENCE. A subscriber asks the following question :-" Can a person wlio has erected the whole of a dividing fence between his own and his neighbour's land, pull down the fence and then compel his neighbour to pay one luilf the cost of erecting a dividing lence ?" Answer by " The Land's" solicitor : I cannot see any objection to an owner, who has put tip a dividing fence., pulling the same down, pro vided he does not commit any tres pass in so doing. If the fence is half on such owner's land and half on his neighbor's land, he cannot remove the fence without trespassing on his neighbour's land, and this he has no right to do. If the fence is pulled down with out committing any trespass-being entirely on such owner's land-I think the neighbour could be com pelled to fence under the ?"Dividing Fences Act. If the fence is a. rabbit-proof fence other considerations apply. Section 42 of the Pastures Protec tion Act/ 1902: (New South Wales), provides that the owner or occupier of...

DEDICATION OP A HIGHWAY. In answer to an inquiry from the "YValmer branch respecting the dedica tion of a highway, our solicitor re plies generally:-"There can be no dedication to the public of a highway by an owner unless there is intention by the owner of the soil to dedicate to the public. Evidence of dedica tion may arise in* a number of ways -by express grant, by lodging plans in the Land Titles Office showing , roads, by owner, &c. The best evi dence of an, intention to dedicate, by user is use for a length of time with the knowledge of the owner of the soil, without interruption, but it is a question of fact in each case Avhetlier there is a dedication by the owner or not".

THE PRODUCTIVENESS OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
THE PRODUCTIVENESS OF WHEAT. Following out a wheat planting ex periment conducted in Russia some time ago, an Essex farmer from one grain obtained nearly 300 grains, on seventy ears of. wheat. General Levitsky, the author of the experi ment. sowed a single grain of wheat in a conical pit about 18in. deep. As the grain began to sprout above the surface of the thin layer of soil placed over it in the bottom of the pit it was earthed over. The next time it appeared there were several shoots, and the whole were covered again. Thence, till the pit was filled up, the earthing over process was repeated every time the grain ap peared, the shoots having meanwhile multiplied till they filled the whole breadth-of the top of the hole. One grain of wheat treated in this way by General Levitsky produced nearly 20,000 shoots, and necessarily in creased its productiveness in an amaz ing manner.
