BODY FOUND IX RIVER.

Buzolich, .T.P.,the Acting Coroner, found that there was not sufficient evidence to show how he got into the river. There was, how ever, evidence of ill-health and mental trouble caused by insomnia.

Immigrant's Lament [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

Immigrant's ^Lament Judging by the statement made by Mr P. Hagelthom, the Minister for Immigration, the story of hardship and inability to obtain work told by a young- immigrant has no foundation in fact—except in such fact as the young man himself should' have known how to control. On the last occasion when a similar incident occurred—for the vague and wander ing immigrant who seems to embark -bv accident and land without design, is no new creature—Mr Watt, the Premier, very properly instructed the police to be extremely careful in ac cepting and giving immediate publicity to alleged facts in such cases. Ap parently very liltie notice has been taken of the instructions, and what looks very much like the narrative of a-bogus case has gained an undesir-' able circulation,, In this instance what appears to have happened is that a young immigrant wandered along to the police station at about midnight and told a pathetic story, which, be fore any investigation could have been made, find...

FATAL FALI) GANGWAY ALLEGED UNSAFE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

FATAL FALI) GANGWAY ALLEGED UNSAFE At an inquest oncerning the death of John Miles, who fell off the .flag ship Invermark at the regatta at Port Pirie, and was killed instantly, the jury returned a verdict of death by ac cident. and added a rider that great negligence had been shown by some person or persons in not providing a protection net under the gangway of the ship. Evidence showed that only one small gangway was provided to allow the public on and off the Invermark, and there was not proper protection on the side or underneath. Miles was endea voring to get off the vessel when he tumbled off the gangway and fell into the water, striking his head on a pile when falling. Mr Mitchell, the magistrate who held the inquiry, said he was surprised that such unsafe conditions existed, and he would forward the jury's rider to the Crown Law officers." The cap tain of the Invermark and the regatta committee were both represented by counsel.

KITCHEN EQUIPMENT USE OF THE SCISSORS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

KITCHEN EQUIPMENT - USE OF THE SCISSORS In our grandmother's kitchen there was a pair of scissors hanging up on a hail beside the stove, along with the almanac and the holder. Usually one or both points were broken, because jscissors are so convenient for digging out a cork. Nowadays the almanac and the holder have disappeared; be cause gas ranges need no stove lid lifter and kettles are made with han dles that protect the fingers. But that is no reason why the scissors should go. In fact they are .more useful for kitchen purposes than they were In the old days. The up-to-date kitchen may well have two pairs, one for cutting string and paper, the others for preparing food. There is nothing like scissors for severing the joint of a chicken quickly, neatly and easily. The chef who commands a big sal ary does not Gut up herbs with a dull knife that crushes them.. His recipes call for parsley, cress or lettuce cut into narrow, clean shreds without the loss of a bit of juice. And the sci...

HOUSEHOLD HELPS USEFUL HINTS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

USEFUL HINTS "Haying two or three gilt , frames, which needed renewing," writes a con tributor, "i was about to purchase some of the gold bronze paint and go over them, when a friend advised me to give them the following treatment: —Pour a-few trops of ammonia on a piece of bread, preferably of the day's baking, but not over a day or. two old, and rub the frame carefully with it. If the bread is very fresh it will clean them without the ammonia, but the lat ter makes the effect more lasting. To my surprise the frames looked like new." To prevent new linoleums wrinkling and to eliminate the possibility of dust collecting, under the edges, the linol eum should be cut one half of an inch smaller than the size of the room. This will-leave a space one quarter of an inch wide on the four sides to allow for stretching, which always occurs with new oilcloth of any kind.

ACTION OF LIME GENERAL BENEFITS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

ACTION OFLIMB V GENERAL BENEFITS It is said (writes, the "Mark Lane Express") that farmers as a class ara rather neglecting- the use of lime; they' are depending too much on chemical manures, and omitting to give the soil dressings of such a neces sary .constituent -as lime. If so, this is a matter of regret, because the crops will suffer in health and quality. Some | chemical manures, such as sulphate of ammonia and kainit, use up the lime in the soil, and all fertilisers, by in creasing the crop, increase also the consumption of lime. It is, therefore, the part of a good farmer, to see that the soil of his farm is well supplied. The action of lime hastens the decay of vegetable matter and sweetens sour lands which may have been more or less submerged. It increases the capillary condition of soil, prevents fungoid diseases, and promotes the%rowth of more nutritive herbage in pastures; it also decom poses minerals in the soil containing potash and other food constituents, and render...

Malliee Water Supply [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

Maliee Water Supply Of the State utilities that have helped tremendously in rendering set tlement profitable, the provision of a stock and domestic water supply in the northern areas ranks among the most beneficent. As one of the Scot tish Commission remarked _ two or three years ago, the life-giving fluid has made the "land to blossom as the rose, and enabled the desert to be cul tivated with confidence." Thousands of square miles of country are served by water channels, and a return just is sued shows how those invaluable pub lic works have been supplemented by huge tanks filled from natural catch ments and by tapping subterranean supplies. In the newer Mallee, 69 bores have been put down and equipped with windmills, tanks and troughs. 'When ten other bores in progress are completed, 400,000 acres of country will be benefited: Boring plants are still busy proving where a safe and satis factory underground supply can be ob tained north of settlement and near the South Australian bo...

Seed Selection [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

Seed Selection Tho r»«i V ' - ?(■ : necessary to assure the . wheat or maize grower that it pays to select seed. The sowing- of virile seed of a proved variety makes for bis: yields. It is one of the factors which' must be followed to render the land more productive. Mr. A. E. V. Richard son, M.A., agricultural superintendent, has frequently stressed the point, an(d h^s indicated. a simple way to carry it out. The wheatgrower need only enter his mature crop, select the best heads from the best plants of Fede ration, Dart's Imperial, or any other variety, thresh them, and later sow them in a seed wheat plot. The re sultant produce will provide grain enough to sow on a comparatively large area. And the selection should not end there; it should be continu ous. The best heads from the best plants should be hand-picked from the seed wheat plot. Reports of ex periments carried on in different parts of the world show that the average yield on a farm can be increased by from 10 to 20 per ce...

TREATMENT FOR BUNT METHODS AT WAGGA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

TREATMENT FOR BUNT METHODS AT WAG-GA. The common method in the Wagga district of treating wheat seed for the prevention of bunt appears to be to use V2I0. of biuestone to the bag of wheat. This ob.yiouslj?-. takes little regard for the strength of the solutipn. It would be better tov consider the amount of biuestone in relation to the quantity; of water used, and to add 1% lb. blue stone to 10 gallons water. Whether satisfactory results are obtained, de I pends largely on the strength of the solution, for if it is too weak the spores of the fungus will not be destroyed, and if too strong the vitality of a large per centage of the seed is impaired (ac cording to a New South Wales officer). Even with the strength of the solu tion regulated in the way suggested, it is advisable to dip the seed in a one per cent, lime solution after blue stoning. One competitor in the Wagga prize farm competitions adopted this treatment with a portion of his seed, with the result that a much better stan...
