Notes for Wheat Growers. GRADING OP SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
Notes for Wheat Growers. GRADING OF SEED WHEAT. The. best seed is always the cheapest. TheAustralian farmer who does not admit the truth of this statement does not know even the elementary Drincinles of wheat production. There is no doubt but that if more attention were given to the selection of first-class seed the yields would be higher than they are! now. In wheatgrowing we must follow \ on the same lines as in stoekbreeding, I and use only the best types for purposes of reproduction. No well-informed! breeder would follow the practice of se lecting as Bis parent stock the poorest animals to be_ found. Still, many far mers persist in sowing year after year a quantity of shrivelled seed, which can only produce degenerate strains, both in quantity and quality. In order to guard . against this it is necessary to have recourse to tne seed grader, and to the selection plot. Under our conditions of harvesting it is most necessary to use the grader on our seed wheat previous to sowing. ...

An Irishman who, with his wife, is em ployed on a truck farm, recently found himself in a bad predicament 'when, in at tempting to evade the onslaughts of a savage dog, assistance came in the shape of his wife. When the woman came up the dog bad fastened his teeth in the calf of her hus band's leg, and was holding on for dear life. Seizing a stone in the toad, the Irishjnan's wife was about to hurl it, when the husband, with wonderful pre sence of mind, shouted: — , 'Mary! Mary! Don't throw the Stone at the dog! Throw it at me!' He— 'And is it my declaration of love that surprised you so much?' She— -'No; it's your nerve- There was recently haled into a court a little Irishman to whom the thing was a new experience. He was, however, un abashed, and wore ah air of a man deter mined not to 'get the worst of it.' 'Prisoner at the bar,' called put the clerk; 'do you wish to challenge any of the jury?' The Celt looked the men in the box over very carefully. ?TVell, I tell ye,' he finally...
IDEAL HOMES. REVOLT AGAINST UGLINESS. A Splendid Example. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
IDEAL HOMES. REVOLT AGAINST UGLINESS. A Splendid Example. Though this is an age in which the paint ing of pictures has sunk to a dead level of- triviality, and in which statues are tolerated more hideous than the world has ever looked upon before, yet in one art, and that the greatest of all arts, there has been in the last 25- years or so a most ?welcome and salutary outburst o£ energy. In domestic architecture the nineteenth century, from* its first few years until to wards its last, ?was contemptible. No thing worse need be said of it than that it ? gave us Tovrer street and Cromwell road. Naturally there came a revolt against ugliness. Mr. Norman Shaw was one of the leaders when he designed little houses for Bedford Park, so pretty that it was considered almost immoral to live in them. But people did live in them, and refused to look at the old barrack-workhouse style any longer. Once set, the fashion spread. Nowadays even the building speculator knows that it is useless to ask ...

A NEW INDUSTRY. Early last year a few fruitgrowers, pro minent among whom were Messrs. J. Maries, F. T. Pitt, A. O. Pike, A. J. R-wnlo» R. Pitt. EL H. Mansfield. E. J. PowelL and the late George Hunt and sev eral others, conceived the idea of start ing 'a co-operative jam factory in. this city. They soon secured the services of Mr. W. A. Hamilton, now of St. Peters, who recently arrived here from Bendigo, where he had successfully established and had been manager of a co-operative jam factory of fruitgrowers and storekeepers. The idea quickly took root in this State, and assumed definite shape, with the above gentlemen as provisional directors and Mr. Hamilton as secretary. Shares were freely applied for, and last August matters were so far advanced as to war rant the promoters in registering the so ciety and purchasing a large block of land on the Payneham road, St. Peters. In structions were then given to . Mr. Clar ence E. Davies, architect, of Eagle Cham bers, King William stree...

"LEAD, KINDLY LIGHT." [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
'LEAD, KINDLY LIGHT.' The Adelaide City Council has nobly responded to its privilege to make the city beautiful, and furnished a series of at tractive lamas and parks. Unfortunately evidence exists to show that the places designed to express the triumph of art over nature contain a snare to some young people, and prove resorts where un disciplined instincts prevail against pro priety. There is one obvious remedy — light in the dark places and more light. The opportunity to do illdeeds makes ill deeds done. Most of those who fall stum ble unintentionally, not being able to see the danger in tiie way. 'Lead, kindly bant.' An erocrieEae of the Glasgow Corporation was that one well-placed lamp was worth two policemen, in the prevention of mischief. Prudence will no doubt avoid sombre spots, however lawful or picturesque; but, if we cannot place old 'heads on young bliouklcrs. we can re move temptations, xi money does not count in toe fin vim °f hmnan life, is a parochial parsimony to pr...

Interstate Eights. Won by Victoria. PERTH, May 1L There was an immense crowd to -witness the race. The weather was splendid, with a_fresh breeze. _ At 4 o'clock the crews were afloat. A long, annoying delay took place owing to the starter missing a mag nfficent' opportunity of getting the men away in line because of a foot or two of difference in one of the boats. The crews struck the water at the following rates: — Tasmania, 38; Victoria, 38; New South Wales, 38; Western Australia, 39; South Australia, 38. The boats went off to gether with a good swing.

South Australia, on eastern side, were rowing nicely, but Western Australia gradually lost way. At the mile Victoria were in the lead, with '.Tasmania well handy, and Western Aus tralia about two le...
