Draughts Notes [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
Draughts Notes Entries for the amateur championship of' Scotland closed lately with a record of 66. The largest number from any district is 24, from Aberdeenshire nearly equal to last year's total entry. The finals will thus be played off in Aberdeen at New Year" time. Beginners at draughts often imagine that experts employ some mysterious mathema tical rule. Tliere is no secret or royal road to a mastery of the game. The old darlcie's description of how he trained mules may bear quoting:—"Rules, sah! Golly, da ain't 'zactly no rules for a mule. sah. Dah's. such a heap of variety'in the critters; for a rule dai would work dis yere animal, ain't worf a cent wif dat yeller cuss! Dah's so many turns and tantrums 'bout a Kentucky mule, dat a rule wouldn't work no better nor last year's almanack! The principal ting, sah. is to keep away from his hoofs, hang on to pa tience an' perseverance, an' always keep yo' eye peeled an' yo' in teller a-workin'."

Town v. Country MATCH AT WAR.RNAMBOOL. COUNTRY'S FINE PERFORMANCE. A match between town and country players was arranged to be played at Warrnamnooi. on Boxing Day, December 25. These matches were first introduced about 15 years a&° a return contest to the big match which is played every year at Melbourne in Show Week. Ballarat (twice), Leongatha (tvace), Bendigo, Geelong, Oolac, are amongst the places that have been visited, and this year Warrnambool was decided upon. Warrnambool is over 160 miles from Mel bourne, so it required a good deal of per suasion to iuduce a large number to go such a distance and forego their other arrange j meuts lor spending the holidays. However, enthusiasm is proverbial amongst draughts | players, so a strong team, accompanied by ; taeir friends, made the journey. Th.e majority arrived on Christmas Day, and the re mainder on the day of the match. The local committee had made excellent i arrangements for the comfort of the team, and these were i...

CALULU AND ITS INDUSTRIES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
a^lulu and . its industries Bvelyn Phillips, living at Calulu P.0..: viai Hillside, writes:—Dear Aunt Connie,—I will take for my subject "Calulu and its Indus tries." Calulu is a pretty little place situ ated near tlie Mitchell River. The industries are varied; but the chief industry is maize igrowing. Sugar beet is also grown. The maize crops were a failure last year, as. the season was too dry, but the crops look very* promising this yc&r. Several of the farmers had oats-iii ; • so they are cutting it now for .hay and chaff. Sugar beet is grown by many farmers on the other side of 'the Mitchell. When it is. fit to pull, it is pulled and sent down to the Maffra sugar factory, where it is made into sugar. • Some people go in for rab biting and sell the skins; others strip wattle bark, and it is sent into the Bairnsdale tan nery. Some farmers go in for dairying, which is one of its best' paying industries. Al though it is hard, monotonous work/it is also very healthy, as the ...
HORTICULTURE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
QUESTIONS AND ANSWIGRS Plant:—Coachdriver (Benrigan, N.S.W.),— Professor Swart, the Government Botanist, states that the specimen is Reseda Lnteolai, Lu (the Weld or Wild Mignonette). It is a native of Europe, now Introduced and ■widely spread in Victoria, and probably now also in New South Wales. Ferns:—F.J. (Ballarat):—As a rule ferns do not need to be re-potted, every season. Some of them may not require increased root spac8 oftener than every third or fourth season. Those that can be easily handled should he turned out of . the pots at the end of each summer. If the growing con ditions are favorable the roots will be fibrous and healthy looking. Should the drainage be choked by worms that displace the soil success cannot be expected next, season. The drainage must be remedied, and clean material and a clean pot substi tuted; but in most cases it is best to re-pot altogether, and, in doing this, all bad soil and decayed roots should be removed.

Seasonable Work THE ORCHARD [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
Seasonable Work By "CULTUS." THE ORCHARD j-rees tnat are not giving satisfac tion may-be budded any time during the next six weeks. An' effort should be made to finish the work before the end of January. The buds will unite rapidly and make strong growth before the winter. Those inserted late m the season will lie dormant if cold weather is experienced early in autumn. They will not quicken until! i spring, and the loss of a year's growth is the result. Summer priming should also receive immediate attention. When done about midsummer it in duces shy bearing and irregular fruit ing trees to yield more readily. Judi cious pinching back of the soft shoots at this period considerably reduces the necessity for so much cutting in winter. When a tree is in full leaf the orchardist can see which shoots are useless much better than when the limbs are bare. If left to their own! resources most trees throw out num bers of shoots that draw on the energy of the main, st.em :to no purpose. The re...
THE FLOWER GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
' THE FLOWER GARDEN Recent' warm, withering- weather had a bad effect on flower gardens and lawns. Many were completely ruined, and a deal of attention will be needed to revive them.. Sweet peas suffered most. Those that have turned brown should be dug out, so that the beds can be roughly trenched and manured un derneath at a depth of. not less than 12 inches. They will then be in good heart to receive daffodils and a large variety of bulbous flowering plants in March. Rose bushes should be given a rest during the next few weeks; so that they may revive their energies prior to the autumn flowering. They must not be forced by excessive wat ering-. If the ground for several feet out . from the stem is covered with a thick layer of mulch, it will keep the soil suitably moist for a long- time. That will ensure a complete spell. The conditions are suitable for budding1. Roses that are to be improved should be dealt with as soon as possible. Chrysanthemums must be suitably nourished at th...
