Apple Packing. PROPER PICKING ESSENTIAL FOR PERFECT PACKING. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 31 January 1914
Apple Packing. PROPER PICKING ESSENTIAL FOR : aI'lEC'I' PACKING. It frequontly requires a nice judg ment to determine the proper time for picking apples, If pickred too soon the fruit will be undersized and poorly cot ored''thus injuring seriously both its quality and appearance in the paek age, If allowed to.hang on too long, its rooping quaylit is inpaired ana ,danger of loss by high winds is multi plied, No definite rule can be laid dloWn as,t timo'of picking. Whoe the fruit, on being.twisted one-half around will snap cleanly from the spur without breaking the stem, it should be picked, Red apples are usually picked when they have assumed a normal colour, and yellow apples when they have at tained the proper sizeo and the seeds become browned, There aroe great dif forences, however, between varieties. The Jonathap must be pioked as, soon a: colored or it will not keep in 'stor age, the Red Astrachan becomes mealy and often cracks when left for oven a day or two after colouring, t...

TERRITORIAL RAILWAY SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 31 January 1914
TERRITORIAL RAILWAY SCHEME. One of the subjects most keenly crl Iclisnd at the present moment is the reposed railway scheme, whereby the annd, which for so long has lain •urie:l in the heart of the Northern 'nrrltory, is to be unlocked, Rail "ays, more railways, and yet again 'allways, is the key by which admis s'oa may be gained to this vast and rich store-room of Australia. Should the Federal Parliament he r qcfomplish the piopos'd rail road schemes, the ccntre of .Au.trilla will, in the future, be to the Comn monwea!th what the great western iila:ns of America are at present to the United States, The tremendous di-ad'lities under which our pioneer settlers labour and yet make good, holding fast to their loyal opln'oa of the golden future awaiting the Terri tory, show conclusively the possibill tire of that land, which, with a right ful ch?ar of nursing and attention, will become good assets, The stations in the interipr are on that hugsp.Calp that, oply' 4ustralians know; and an ...

Electric Light Supply ASPENDALE, CHELSEA AND CARRUM. No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 31 January 1914
Electric Light Supply ASPENDALE, OHEISEA AND' CAR.RUM, No. 3, We have been hearing a lot lately about an electrio light and power mpply for this district, and hope that in the near future our anticipations will be realised. It would be very hard to estimate the gain it would be to the locality. Just think 'for a momont of some of the results thai would take place, The increase in the value of property, for instance. If a house was to be lot or sold, one of the first questions asked would be, "Has it electrio light?" The very fact rf the installation being in the house would add pounds to its value. Then consider the possibilities in regard to the local fire brigades. The fire carts could be fitted with small motor driven pumps, weighing little more than half a hundredwtiiht, and with provision at intervals on the stleet polos for obtaining current to operate pumpe, mastery over a fire would soon be obtained. Even if the fire was away from the line of poles, a few dozen yards of wire...

B3revities, It is better to be wise and not to seem to, than to seem wise, and uotto be so,. The real life is not outside our. selves, but within The real pos sessions are not what the hands may grasp, but what the heart may hold So act that your principles of action may safely be made an ex. ample and a law for the wholk world It is not always the depth or novelty of thought which consti tut~es its value to ourselves, but the fituess of its applicatlon to our cir cunlmtances Love is an awakening, an Inspira tiol, dulling theedge of resentment sharpening the eloquence of wit, impoverishlng distinction, and guartntteeing equality
Mr Leonard Borwick [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 31 January 1914
MIr Leonard Borwick That very great artist, Mr Leonard Borwick, the most celebrated English pianist of the present gen eration, will pay a return visit to. Australia this year, On the occa sion of his former tour Mr Borwick was limited by his engagements, to a very limited visit. He had barely time to appear in Melbourno,,Adelaide and Sydney with the four oentres of New Zeialand, On the present tour Mr Borwiok has given himself ample time to visit all the Australian States, as well as Now Zealand on his way to the United States where he is booked for an extensive tour late in the yorr, There is little need to say anything in praise of the great English interpreter of Boeethoven, Mir Borwick won, wherever he played in Australia, immediate recognitiotn as one of the modern princes of the piano, One leading critio desoribed Leonard Borwiok's art as, "more fascinating than Paderwaski, more artistio than Hambourg, more brillant than Carreno" a~d the general opinion was that in addition t...

CORRESPONDENCE RAPID PACE OF MOTOR CARS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 31 January 1914
cOR RESPONDENCe RAPID PACE OF MOTOR OARS, To the Editor, Sir,-May I have a small space of your spirited paper to call publio attention to the motor car menace to public safety. A few, at least, of those motor car drivers are absolutely reckless. These reckless fellows -they ase not gentlemen--sweep the frontispieces of their oil and dust painted demons right up to the very nostrils of one's horse, ere they de cide to awoop to their own side of the road or street, But in justice to the large majority of motor car owners, I must say that these flash, high-speed, whizzy shoot-the-stars pacers are in the small minority. They must be oreatures of puny brain capacity to indulge in such audacious tactics, trying to make people's horses swerve off the street, so that they-the high falutin motorists-may have some thing funny to relate to their oil machine friends. Well, sir, there isn't nuoh fun in walking home with one's mouth full of small bits of road metal, a fractured arm, or even a fra...
