THE PROLIFIC PASSION-VINE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 19 February 1914
».T,HE PROLIFIC PASSION-VINE. There is no need to stop the run ners or trailers, when the fruit is sec, 'beyond keeping all irregular and unduly long upshoots within bounds. The vine simply requires to be kept in shape at the pruning season by the pinching back or removal of strag gling vinos and shoots, and old vines may be renovated by cutting back all the growth to the main stalk and al lowing a new growth to replace that cui away. Under suitable conditions and in a fairly fertile soil the pas sion-vine will then throw out young tender healihv shoots, and will bear good-sized fruit, without the necessity of stopping the runners, .although, as lias been already stated,' tiie trailers should be kept Within hmimlc soil should be kept free and loose around die vine-;, and if there is a deficiency of humus (vegetable mat ter) in the soil, stable or farmyard manure may be dug in. When fertilisers are applied to pas sion-vints they are remarkably pro ductive. From a number of experi men...

DRAINAGE IN THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 19 February 1914
DRAINAGE IN THE ORCHARD. Drainage is one of the most im p.-irtant aids to success in tho pro notion of fruit. If tliere are indica "i.ms that [lie soil is retaining too -rich moisture, a system of under -TmiiKl drainage should be adopted, soon as the young trees are plant i i This work is often allowed to sand over until the second or third y.-.u- after planting. The orchard is tiii.s kept back at a time when rapid gi"'vth is most desirable. Land that lias a tendency to hold more water Ur.i". necessary should be adequately dvii'.ned a full season before it is plaited. Ideal condition.-; would .be tlu> result, and the progress of tlio orc'mvnl would more than compensate for the early outlay. In any case., underground drainage 01' most areas is essential. It is, therefore, better to do it. as soon as the trees are Planted, if not a year in advance, than to delay the work for 1L' months or more. Many systems of underground drainage have been used with good effect. Narrow trenches cu...

A NEW EVENING WRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 19 February 1914
NEW EVENING WRAP. Tiiis is a very up-to-date (lesion for an evening wrap, yet it is so simple that the most inexperienced home dressmaker can make it. The body ot the wrap is in two pieces only, without a seam under the arms. There is hardly an annhole, and there is cer tainly nothing to crush the frailest of frocks. The collar may have a deep square or rounding outline at the hack, and may be of all-over lace or corded silk. The wrap may be made in faced cloth, velvet, clmrmeuse or )ttoman silk. M.

HUMBLE POTATO [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 19 February 1914
HUMBLE POTATO ?arrangements are being mado in France for tlie celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the death of Farmentier, whose name is insep arably associated with tho introduc tion of potatoes as a popular comes tible. I.iouis Louis XVI. promised to help him to launch them by giving a ban quet at which they were to be served as an attractive novelty; but the Royal cook unfortunately misunderstood the instructions given to him. Instead of boiling the tubercles, he cooked the leaven as a kind of cabbage. Tho courtiers, after trying every imaginable sort of condiment with the preparation, pronounced the dish de testable, and declared that no per suasion would induce them ever to taste it again. Inquiry, however, detected, the error which had been made, and a second experiment brought the new delicacy Into high favor.
