NATIONAL APPLE DAY. ENCOURAGIN FRUIT CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
NATIONAL APPLE DAY. ENCOURAGIN FRUIT CONSUMP TION. One of the happiest ideas that have cornel' to us from American fruitgrowers (says the "Journal") is that 'of a National Apple Day, the object being to bring before the great communities of city consumers, in the most attrac tive manner possible, the virtues ol the apple, not only as fr choice item of dessert, but as a valuable, everyday article of diet. The idea could be copied with distinct advantage in this country. As the National Apple Day would be primarily a great advertising campaign, on behalf of the king of fruits, the scheme would require to bo designed on a generous scale, and in a manner which would appeal to tho greatest', number of consumers. It may be rather ambitious to adopt ono American feature—the free distribu tion of apple pies (special machinery at the Spokane National Apple Show turn ed out these pies at a rate of 2250 per hour). However, it would certainly pay well to give choice apples for sale in the stree...
TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. Aocording to the statistics published (says _ the Mark Lane ' Express)' -'there were iu England last year 244,831 acres classed a-s orchards.. We are sorry to say we cannot say of "cultivated" orchards, because the mistaken idea seems to have prevailed to a great ox-' thatl orchards and pastures can get along alright without attention or as sistance; that kind Nature ^has 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 cilasd arc grown, and sprayed and pruned, orch ards become! a source of profit not to be despised. It is essential that the trees, if expected to produce abund ant crops of good fruit, should he sup plied with nourishment, to compen ...
QUAINT TENURES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
QUAINT TENURES. I The kinga and. princes of England seem to. have delighted to amuse them selves by the devising of tenures for tiheir personal profit, pleasure, and amusement. . Some in their nature (writes Paul Monckton in t)he "Con temporary Review") are such as to be unprintable in the twentieth century Press; these quickly came to bo com muted to a money payment. Others, again, are positively amazing in the variety and nature of the customs by wlhich they were to be held. For instance, the Lordship of Bures. in Essex, was held by the sergeantry of scalding the King's hogs; Carleton, in Nottingham, by t)he service of one catapult in the year for all services; two farms at Carlcoats, Yorkshire, by the service of finding, one a right hand glove, and the oflier a ieft hand glove, the -whole of the Manor of Caldeoote was held by Humphrey de Bo'lim by virtue of being Lord High Constable of England—a post now abolished on ac count of tho degree of power and splen dour attaching to tMi...

A FAMOUS RUINED CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
A FAMOUS RUINED CITY. A s a member of the expedition which was sent out in 1883 by the Committee ot' the Palestine Exploration Fund, Pro fessor E. Hull, writing in the Outlook, gives an account of Petra, the deserted capital of Arabia Jetraea, some of whose buildings remain 2000 years after they were built. Mount Hor rises immediately above the city, and is recognised by nearly all writers as the sepulohure of Aaron, the High Priest of Israel. We turned off, says Professor Hull, from the Arabah by a wide valley reaching into the heart of the moun tains, and. through which ran a stream of pure water, with luxuriant bushes of oleandor and several other plants and shrubs growmg alongside. Numer ous flocks and herds were grazing in the valley, which became narrower the farther we went, until it nan-owed in to a winding pathway leading over a ridge of rocks to the entrance, into Petra on the western side, and from which the first view of the city was gained. Having surmounted the low rid...
ON GOLDEN WINGS. CHAPTER XXII. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
ON GOLDEN WINGS. i'. — r-J (By -W. Howell Poole). CHAPTER XXII. ■ Charley replied that it needed no great penetration on Iris part to recog nise the author of his being. "Did you do that on purpose?" en quired the colonel, gazing on the halo of liquid matter which the table-cover had absorbed around the broken crys tal; but receiving no answer, he re peated the question, steadying a chair to enhance hid importance. "Sch-kiles," observed Charley with difficulty. "SchkilesP" enquired the colonel re flectively. "Sclikittles," replied his son, with a greater effort at pronunciation. "Oh," observed his father, and that he might still more imposingly assume his paternal dignity, he relinquished— with danger—his hold of the chair, and observed in a voice indicative of soft '•.id plaintive weeping: "Charley, this is disgraceful 1" The clook on the mantelpiece was striking, and they both seemed to lis ten to its strokes; the colonel again, 'for his better .ease and comfort, secur ing a chair...

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. THE HEIR TO A DUKEDO&J. : A HUGE PERSONATION FRAUD. 1 By S. W. Hopkins, Author of "On Pour Brass Elates," etc., etc. PART 10. CHAPTER XIV.—(Continued.) "Biit," said his uncle, "the difficul ties are insurmountable. In the first place, you tie yourself down to a constant attendance on an irrespon sible man. You leaye yourself no time for rest or enjoyment. Then there is the difficulty of travelling with him without provoking unpleas ant comment. How will you s?3- iv/or the absence of name ? How will you avoid unpleasant features at hotels '! I think the scheme is wild, myself." ■ "Scarcely that," replied the doc tor.- "I have studied it out pretty well. Of course, I shall give him a name before I start, and shall diill him into the use of it. Cummings will come with me and relieve me of the strain of actually caring for him. And I shall also take Trimble, ' who is invaluable under such circumstan ces. He has made two trips across with me before, and under...

"Well," answered Willie, ' I don't, go to any church much, but the Church of England is the one I stay away from..'

UNGRATEFUL TOM. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
UNGRATEFUL TOM. Mr Blossom had been very ill, and by the time he was able to get downstairs again, his hair had grown to a con siderable length. Then it was that Mrs B. volunteered to'cut it for him. and Blossom, probably owing to his weak condition,, consented to the ex periment. Mrs B. fastened the table cloth under Blossom's chin and got to business. Then Blossom repented his rashness." "Great,Scott, Martha," he yelled, as Mrs B. jammed the point of the scis sors in his neck. "What the dickens do you think you're doing?" "Am I hurting you, dear?" mur mured Mrs B. "It's only those cor ners behind your ears that bother me. Do keep still." And then she sliced a bit off his ear.. "Thundering Jumbo 1" shouted B., jumping about the room like a oafc- on hot bricks. "Oh no, I'm only doing this for fun." And he dashed upstairs and plunged his head in the bath. "That's the worst of Tom," sighed Mrs B., as she took up her knitting. "He's always so ungrateful!"
FRUIT CREATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
FRUIT CREATIONS. ■ A ■ ■ A few years ago th& rural world ^was very much agitated , about the reports concerning the wonderful re sults following the work of plant breeding, which had been carried out by Luther Burbank. Some of these reports were very much discounted, and, indeed, one of the American farm papers exposed what it claimed was a fraud upon the public so call ed the wonderberr.y. Still it was far as utility was concerned of the plant afterwards shown that any misrepre sentation which might have cropped up was not the result of anything that Burbank might himself have' said, but due to the zeal of the syn dicate which undertook to put his plants upon the market. The hostile criticism, therefore, waned so as to give time a chance to prove thei util ity of the creations which the brain of this had designed. Some of these plants are being tried in Australia, and there arc very. warm advocates of at least a few of them to be found amongst, the experimentalists. Bur ban...
CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
CHAPTER XV. We have had a brief acquaintance with two young ladies, both beauti ful, one being as beautiful in soul as in face, . and the other using her beauty to attra-ct men to her, to ex hort— But what is the use of say ing anything about Mildred Moore ? It shall now be our pleasure to get a glimpse of another, and one in whom we shall, I hope, take an in terest equal to, if not greater than that which either of the others has inspired. We must precede Helen to Marchmere, arid witness the home life of that Marion ' whose gossipy letter perhaps aroused some.little curiosity concerning her personality. Behold, then, on a keen, frosty morning in the late autumn, a peace* fill country scene in ——shire. The leaves of the deciduous trees in the splendid park are fallen, or arc in their last bright hues of magnificent [ decay. No snow has yet fallen. There isv a crispness in the air, a brightness to the sunlight, that makes life seem worth, living. * : Two or three men. are working on ...
THE FARM. STOCKING AND OVERSTOCKING. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
THE FARM. — STOCKING AND OVERSTOCKING. An experienced farmer will see that his grass paddocks are stocked with just the number of sheep or cattle that will entail neither shortage of feed or waste of grass. Judicious grazing can never be accomplished on large wide-ranged areas where English grasses are sown, and , the fence is a most neccssary adjunct to successful and economic pasturing of stock. , A large area appropriately divided with} fences and the stock rotated from one paddock to another will carry quite fully half as many head again, if not more. The stock will, moreover, do better and be much healthier, adding very substantially to the settlers' income. Moving them from one paddock to another as the feed is eaten down and becomes foul ed with the droppings of the animals . will give each paddock a chance to get thoroughly washed and cleaned with rains, making the flush of grass awaiting , grazing after the spell wholesome feeding. Such paddocks, too, can stand heavy stocki...
RUNNER BEANS AND DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
I ;RUNNER BEANS AND DROUGHT. "Vegetarian," writing to an Eng lish paper, gives the results of water ing runners during a drj spell. .Ob serving that one of his neighbours had very poor results, although the roots were well watered, he set to woft in his own garden by watering a row at the roots only, never al lowing the water to touch the leaves, whilst a second row was treated by watering both leaves and roots, with the result that the latter produced ! pofts a foot long, whilst the former only gave pods of three incnes. "Vegetarian" says that in a wet season very few pods fail to set, hut that during a dry spell it is not so, and that artificial watering of leaves as well as roots is necessary to se cure a good setting of pods. Some people work into the poultry Iwsinestv, while others drop in, and, not understanding how to swim, flounher about and are drowned. Dislike of detail is a prominent cause of failure with poultry, which demands close undivided attention to the small thing...
THE FARM. SULPHATE OF IRON AS A MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 February 1914
THE FARM. 1 SULPHATE OB1 IRON AS A MANURE. . In view of the fact, as so far proved, that top-dressings of sul phate of iron were found useful In checking the "Bush disease" to wbic'n cattle and sheep, running in certain districts are subject, it is interest ing to examine the opinions of well known agricultural authorities and note the wide diversity of opinions expressed ton the use of this iron salt in practical farming. That iron sul phate ^vastly improves the colour of grass is well known to those who have used it for getting rid of weeds on lawns. When the sulphate is first, applied to the lawn, it is inclined to turn the leaves of the grass black, but after a shower or two of rain the grass rapidly recovers, and the leaves take on a rich dark-green colour. All authorities admit that the chloro phyll or green colouring matter in plants cannot be formed without the presence of iron. For instance, A. D. Hall, Director of the Rothamstea&lt;i Experiment Station, who is oppo...
AIDS TO COLOUR IN FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 February 1914
AIDS TO COLOUR IN FRUIT. Mr. G. P. Berry considers that al j though eminent authorities i state ; there is always much more iron in | the soil than is necessary for the i colouring of fruits, there are certain | districts and certain soils where col I ouring is very marked. , j At the Carlisle Fruit Congress he | instanced the great variation of col ! ouring found in the East of Scot I land, from Berwick to Kincardine. ! He always added four stones per acre j of sulphate of iron when preparing I for fruit planting, and in nine plan j tations under his care, in different I counties, he found that in the sec ; tions fertilised with potash there was I earlier maturity and finer colour ! than in the case of the phosphate 1 and nitrogen plots. j . He advocated the application of j ljcwt. of sulphate of potash per acre I as a srood average dressing to secure good colour in fruits. -"Gardener's Magrazine." . . Mr. J. Salkeld, of Burwood, Christ i church, recently made an experiment j in gr...
