CLUB ELEVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 24 January 1914

CLUB ELEVEN. The club eleven journeyed to Hnvs water Inst Saturday, whore they met the locnl team. Northcote batted first on a fast concrete wicket, which proved too much for Northcote, who were disposed of for r,G, their smallest score this sea son. Trott 13 and Robinson 12 were highest scorers. Bayswater opened to the bowling of Andrew and Price, but the ground was too small for Andrew s googlies, which were hit over the boun dary fairly easily. Horn displaced An drew, and a sensational collapse fol lowed. The score at this stage was no wickets for 59, then Horn clean bowled G for 1 run oir five overs, a splendid per formance.

SECOND ELEVENS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 24 January 1914

SECOND ELEVENS. South Melbourne resumed with 4 J wickets down for 300, and after adding 15 runs the innings was declnred closed. Northcote made an excellent start in re sponse to this big task. McPhee ,and Vernon added 34 for the second wicket, when the former received a nasty blow from Franks, the fast bowler, and .was caught immediately afterwards. Ver non and Heron then liecame associated and took the score to 70, when Vernon, in attempting a big hit off Kenny, was bowled. He mrnie 48 faultlessly, includ ing a sixer and six 4's. He showed good judgment in picking the rig:ht ball to hit, and was out to his first mistake. At 98 Heron was out to Barry. This was his first game with the club, and his innings of 2S was a first rate effort. A slump then set in, and The remaining.six batsmen only added 1G runs, the side be- i ing dismissed for 114, a very disappoint ing score after such a fine beginning. McCormack 5 for 37.

CROP ROTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 24 January 1914

CROP ROTATION. Rotation of crops aVomaihiained' for three principal j purposes.: (1) torinuin tain soil fortuity, (2) to* provide'pro iilnblo'cnsh crops;, .and (3) ;to>»provido roughage and fraiii for live-stock.* A proper balanco must; baiscoured* ber. tween all these^ It is ulways essen tial lintt fertility- bo maintained,, so. that this is a prime requisite in arrang ing a rotation. Live-stock farming is seldom pioiitablo unless somo cash crops are grown for sale. Even as spe cialised an industry, as poultry-raising is, rarely as profitable when carried on niono as when it is n non-competing part of a general farm system. Cash crops are, therefore, important. The growing of roughage for live-stock is almost equally essential. Jt is not al ways advisablo to try to produce the grain requirod lor live-stock ho-vevor, as on much of the land adapted to the raising of live-stock grain cannot ho produced as choaplv as elsewhere.

IMPORTANCE OF FALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 24 January 1914

IMPORTANCE OF FALLOW. It is hardly necessary to reiterate tho arguments in favor of sowing cereal crops on well-tilled fallow, especially. in those districts whero tho. seasons are cold and wot, or, on tho other hand, short and dry. In tho- first case, the conservation of moisture is not imports ant, but tho amelioration.of the soil to a condition of sweetness and friubleness 1 is. On heavy wot soils, tho bene/U*iul influence of vain and sunshine, and , wind cannot bo over-estimated. "Where | uncler-drab/age can be supplied, so much tho bitter: if this cannot ho done, then surfQ/o drains will often be found to keep the accumulated winter rains from making ponds or sodden swamps of the low-lying ground.

CRICKET. NORTHCOTE V. MELBOURNE. FIRST ELEVENS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 31 January 1914

cmcKEr. - NORTHCOTE V. MELBOURNE. FIRST ELEVENS. Very little interest is taken in this mutch owing to it not counting for the pennant. Northcote's team was weakened through the absence of Lug ton and Brown, and the opportunity was taken of playing Hiscon, a very promis ing left-hand howler with youth on his side. Vernon, who has been batting consistently and well for the second eleven, was promoted and made 45 faultlessly. Northcotc, batting first, were only equal to the modest score of 151. This came chiefly from the bats of two men, as Chesswas and Vernon, in a useful partnership, added 99 ^ runs. Chesswas played another of his fine innings for 61 not out. Vernon 45 was the only other batsman to make double figures, the remainder putting up a very feeble resistance against the bowling of O'Donoghue and Iremonger, who got G for 59 and 4 for 45 respectfully. Mel bourne lost 1 wicket for Si. Johnson, who made 33, was clean bowled by His con. Vaughan 41 not out No play was possible on...
