FRUIT GROWING AND IRRIGATION. AN AUSTRALIAN IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
FRUIT CROWIN~l AND IRRIGATIO N. AN AUSTRALIAN IN CALIFORNIA. Another interesting letter 'has been pub-. lished in the "Daily Telegraph," from Mr. F. Owen Frenbh, a former student of the Hlawikesbury Agricultural College, who is extending his practical experience by work ing in Californian orchards and packing .houses. Writing on 14th September, he says: "Just at present I find myself located on a 90-acre mixed orchard, eight miles from San'ta Rosa. the 'home of Luther Burbank. in Sonoma Valley, about 50 miles from 'Frisco.- I am getting good experience with prunes, doing all sorts of work with them.

LOOPING THE LOOP IN GALE OF WIND. LONDON, 27th December. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
LOOPING THE LOOP IN GALP. OF WIND. LONDON, 27th December. A sensational aerial performance was given be fore a huge crowd at Hendon yesterday . by the well-known aviators Gustave Hamel and Chante loupe. Notwithstanding that a gale was blowing with a velocity of 60 miles per hour, the iitrepid .air men looped the loop and performed other thrill ing, tricks in mid-air. Hamel nearly met with disaster during his per formaiice of looping the loop. He succeeded in righting his aeroplane when it had almost touched the ground in a terrific downward swoop. Ilucks, the English airman, at Aintree, Linca shire, yesterday won. a wager by looping the loop in a gale of wind with a velocity of 50. miles per hour.
A STRAWBERRY GRADING SCOOP. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
A STRAWBERRY GRADING SCOOP. A strawberry grading scoop, which is exten sively used in large, berry growing districts is here shown. It is made. of tin, and, shaped very much like a. dustpan, except that it narrows down so that its mouth just fits a standard quart box. The berrries .are turnel over carefully in the scoop for inspection, and then rollled into a box. This saves changing from one box into an other, and the consequent bruising of nsany berries.- "Popular Mechanics."
FRUIT EXPORT TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
FRUIT EXPORT TRADE. A deputation representing the Victorian Fruit Growers' Associatibn waited upon the Harbor Trust on Monday, 22nd ult. Mir...J. H. Lang, president of the as sociation submitted two resolutions: That in the opinion of the association, the in spection of export fruit on or near the pier-as practised from the inception of the trade-is be coming more and more necessary each year owing to the rapidly increasing quantity of fruit ex ported. That the fruit growers strongly object to thb Department. of. Agriculture endeavdring' to compel the growers to send their fruit through the Gov ernment Cool Stores at the Victoria Dock. He explained that the deputation wanted the Harbor Trust to erect a shed oni the new pier. at Port Melbourne, where the export' fruit might be inspected, other wise they would be forced to send it' through the' cold stores at Victoria Dock. Pre-cooling did more harm. than good un less the whole of a ship's cargo was pre cooled. The fruit from Victoria...
PROFITABLE STRAWBERRY GROWING. METHODS WHICH LEAD TO SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
PROFITABLE STRAWBERRY CROWINGC METHODS WHIGH LEAD TO SUCCESS. . [BY OUR :ItRdTIOULTURAL REPORTER.] Although' strawberries may be success fully grown in almost any kind of~ioil, from sandy 'loam to stiff clay or rich 'volcanic, and in all climates, from the cool mountain regions to the hot irrigation districts, they are never so 'plentiful as to be within the' reach of the imasses; and,' while prices seem high enough to encourage extensive planting, the industry is never ru'shed. The reason is to be found in the large ambunt of hand labor involved in cultivation and harvesting--cultivation including the entire' replanting of the plot every few yeaks. There is very little scope for the use' of, laboi-saving machinery, or for handling the produce in. big' lines, consequently 'straw berry culture does not commend itself to the capitalist, who prefers tlhe bigger opera tions of: the orchard and vineyard. Very few strawberry gardens are more than four or five acres in extent, and a great ...

HORTICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
HORTICULTURAL NO'TES. Complaints are sometimes made that fruit carried by rail is liable to be con taminated by being carried in trucks with fowl crates, kerosene, soap, grease and even artificial manure. Railway authorities as sert that efforts are always made to pre vent fruit from becoming tainted or bruised. There are occasions when small lots of fruit cannot be separated'from other sundries, but they may sometimes be taken into the van in order to escape damage. Consignors should complain immediately w-hen they are dissatisfied with the manner in which their fruit is handled. On the advice of Mr. Castella, Govern ment Viticulturist, several growers at Mer bein, Mildura, planted export varieties of grapes, principally Ohanez and Flame T'okay. Some of the vines are now in bearing, and it is hoped to make up a consignment of 500 cases, to be sent to London under "Somerset" conditions-that is, in a pear ship,, under the same condi tions as pears are carried.

WALLAN DISTRICT FRUIT NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
WALLAN DISTRICT FRUIT NOTES5 [PflOM UR CORRESPONDENT.] The orchards situated on the foothills of the Plenty Ranges and in the valleys of'the Plenty. River and Diamond Creek are. look ing well, but an inch or two of rain at the present juncture would be welcomed to fill out the apples and pears. From present appearances the' apple crop will be a little lighter than last year's, which was the heaviest on record. The cold snap and hail storms early in November did considerable damage. to the fruit, the south side of. the trees being most affected. An irregularity in the setting is very noticeaule tuis sea son, the same varieties tbeing heavy in some orchards and light in adjoining ones. This applies to Jonathans, WFive Crowns, and most. other varieties,, though .the Five Crown appears to" be the most consistent cropper in this district. Jonathan is, how ever, the most popular. ariety, as the cool climate suits it well, and' it is not subject to black spot to the same extent as the othe...
