SULPHUR AS A FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 17 March 1914

SULPHUR AS A FERTILISER. IC.-perimonls carried out both in Gor many aud in franco confirm rocont re ports as to tko fertilising action of flow ers of sulphur upon tho soil. In tho German trials a dressing of 90 lb per acre, applied in February, a short time before the crops were sown, had a beneficial effect upon barley and rye. Tho treated portions of the crops ivoro .stronger, and had a brighter groon co lor than tho untreated: hut no account of tho dill'erenco in yield is given. Tho French experiments wore iutondod to throw light upon tho causo of the fer tilising action of sulphur. Tho-cause lias been said to bo the destruction of' injurious bacteria in tho soil, aud tho conclusion of the investigators agrees that this is partly tho caso.' But it is concluded also that tho chemical notion of tho sulphur has somo effeot. Sul phuric acid is gradually formed, and this, not only suplies sulphur to tho plants, but also helps to dissolve mineral ele ments' in tho soil.

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 17 March 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosino.") Tho bizarro in dress threatens to bo much to tho foro this season, says a Paris oxpert. Already we seo signs of tho evil in tho newest and smartest models as been in this eity. Headgear in tho form of skull caps with towering aigrottes, skirts with an exaggerated split from tho foot, and bodices of day gowns cut so low as to bo almost de collete; and fur stoics twisted about tho form, and muffs aro tho sizo of pillows. At ouo shop I saw a walking gown in whito velvet trimmed with bands of sablo. Is not this tho last word in extravagance? Now, I am no Puritan as regards dress, but I think that every woman should suit her costume to her circumstances. Bi zarro dress has charms, but it must bo given its surrounding. An outro gown or hat which looks well wlieu worn by a smart woman in a motor, seems out of placo on .1 middle-aged matron, or when worn by a young wife who keeps 110 maid and travels by omnibus. And tho tight skirt and huge hats which one...

CRICKET SEMI-FINAL ROUND, GOORAM EASILY BEAT VIOLET TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 17 March 1914

CRICKET SEMI-FINAL ROUND, GOORAM EASILY BEAT VIOLET TOWN. The semi-final matches were com monccd 011 Saturday when Gooram finished up with a lead of 82 runs on the first innings. There was a good number of spectators present, a few of whom exercised their "wit" at the expense of the players when things were not looking so "rosy" ns they wished-certainly with some excuse, as the fieldiug of the local team was remarkably "off," chance after chance being dropped. Goorom aided by con siderable luck, put up 150, not too much to expect from such an even team on a wicket without a kick. Souter, was the chief contributor with 54, put up by hard hitting. Bradley batted really well, and his 27 included a fine hit for six. Violet Town was ' con fident of making a good fight, but with a few runs up the skipper was out lbw to a long hop from round the wicket, which he tried to pull-a decision which did not meet with fnvor. The remain der of the innings was little better than a "procession" McPhe...
