IRRIGATED ORCHARDS QUALITY OF PRODUCE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

IRRIGATED ORCHARDS QUALITY OF PRODUCE It is generally "believed that irriga ted fruits are inferior to non-irriga ted fruits as regards taste and power to resist the various agencies which af fect decay. In support of this belief it is frequently stated that the former contain abnormally high percentages of water, and consequently low per centages of dry matter, and are there fore deficient ia those compounds which determine the taste and body of the fruit. Although the quality of fruits may not be capable of determin ation from analysis alone, it would ap pear that, in so far as taste depends upon the presence of certain com pounds, analytical data would be of material service in the setlement of questions relating to quality. . In experiments recently, carried out in. America the irrigated samples of aples. were obtained from parts where irigation is " imperative, and the non irrigated samples from districts where the annual rainfall varies from 25 to 35 inches. Determinations wer...

FRUIT IN NEW ZEALAND SUPPLY AND DEMAND [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

fruit in new zealand ,T SUPPLY AND DEMAND •New Zealand is "becoming more self reliant in regard to her fruit require-^ ments. In a few years there will be fairly large quantities available for ex port. A report from Otago dated January 14 shows the position. Since the New Year it is stated, fruit mer chants have been exceptionally busy. Large consignments of fruit, consisting of peaches, plums, apricots, etc., have been arriving from the Alexandra, Roxburgh, Auckland, and Nelson dis tricts. The demand has been strong and all lines have been readily cleared. Prices, however, are lower than usuajl for the opening of the season, owing to the heavy quantities which have come forward. Raspberries ar© arriving from the surrounding districts, and also from Waimate. Sales were made under the hammer on January 13, and the fol lowing day at 5%d per lb. As the crops in Waimate are reported to be smaller than usual, it seems hi'ghly probable that values will continue firm to the end of- the sea...

DEAR VEGETABLES DUE TO PARTIAL FAILURE DRY WEATHER RESULTS. THE RECENT CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

DUE TO PARTIAL FAILURE DRY WEATHER RESULTS. THE RECENT CHANGE. « By " CULTUS." Housewives during* the past few weeks have been complaining bitterly of the high prices of vegetables. At the latter paxt of last week the outlook for vegetable crops was unpro mising in every part of the State. It was probably never much worse. Any thing approaching a similar condition has not been experienced for several years. In districts where a sufficiency of water for regular application was not available the plants failed completely. Throughout the areas where artificial watering could be carried on there was not the usual amount of growrth. Since the beginning of December the absence of rain and rapid changes from ex treme heat to extreme cold produced a practically growthless effect. Cabbages that were transplanted in October made good headway, and were well advanced when the adverse weather set in. They have matured fairly well, and those who were fortunate to put in large plots of these vegeta...

NEW POULTRY BOOK COMPREHENSIVE VOLT*ME The "International Poultry Book' has just been received from the writer, Mr George Woodward, who h^s been on a visit to Eng land. He has embodied both Aus tralian and English ideas in the book. ;He deals with poultry-keeping in its various phases, and submits many rea sons why the industry should be a suc cess. Some of the writer's ideas are certainly different from those which other poultry publicists have put for ward, but Mr Woodward has had a long: experience in poultry, and no doubt has the best reasons for what he has written. The book contains a valuable fund of information on general purpose as well as exhibition poultry keeping. The standards and scale of .points allotted to each breed are in cluded, and are a very necessary and valuable form for reference. The book is interspersed with well executed il lustrations.

Hats and Heads [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

Hats and Heads Once upon a time (this is about hats and heads, and is not a fairy story) the selection of a hat. depended entirely on the style of the wearer's coiffure. A woman never entertained the idea of re-arranging her hair on some novel basis to suit the erratic angles and curves of the latest thing in hats. Though the fancy was for picture hats, she would wear a toque rather than draw her hair over her ears and unloosen the coils from the top of her head. Now she covers up her ears, un covers her ankles and dances to the varied tunes of the mode. Hats are 110 longer modified to suit coiffures, but hair dressing is adapted to suit hats. The hat that has det^r^ mined the style of coiffure for a^o^ tion in the winter is known srffzgfte Watteau. It is a quaint, absurfL^yitle, shape, perched rakishly over t^^ left ear. A large expanse of forehe^daaod head is left uncovered, and the?^|jMg, to meet the new vogue, is drawn^£p from the forehead and arranged m big loose waves. Althoug...

GENERAL NOTES Women Judges [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

Women Judges Judge Penckney, juvenile court judge , of Cook County (Chicago), was the first to recognise the value of a woman judge. L»ast year he appointed Miss Mary ■ M. Bartelme, a Chicago lawyer, as his : assistant in the juvenile court. i "The plan proposed," said Judge ; Penckney, when the appointment was , officially gazetted, "is to have the case of each delinquent 'girl heard by a ; woman, who shall act as the represen- . tative and assistant of the presiding judge. To this woman assistant, in the presence of the girl's father and mother, the witness will tell the girl's story. Every consideration will be shown the girl and her family. "In so far as it is possible to do so, this darkened page in the girl's life will be guarded from the public gaze." It is believed that a delinquent girl will more readily unburden her soul to one of her own sex, especially if allowed to confess her fault out of hearing of the public, surrounded by father and mother, and those in sympathy wit...
