WHICH KND OF A POST' SHOULD BE UP? It is a very common belief Hinong farmers that a post will last longer if set in tlie ground the reverse of the way it grew in the tree, in othei words with the butt end u[i. Accordingly, one sees many posts, especially end and gate posts, with the small end down. The supposition is that sap in a tree is always ascending, or at least that it is easier for the sap to go up than down. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow in either direction with equal facility and the popular notion to the contrary is incorrect. The dpcu- of 9 post i:; mostly at the ground lino, since it is there that the conditions as to air and moisture are most favorable to the development of rot-causing fungi. Other things being equal the larger the post the longer it will last. Inverting a post often means put ting the small end in the ground, and wlieie this is done the time required to rot it off is less than where the big end is down. If both ends are equally sound the ...

VICTORIA'S ELECTORAL ROLLS. METROPOLIS AND COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 7 May 1914
VICTORIA'S ELECTORAL . . . ROLLS. METROPOLIS AND COUNTRY. The revision of the Electoral rolls for the Victorian ANseiubly has given some startling results. No leaB than 100,000 names have been added to the old lists an achievement which shows that the past Ministers were sadly parsimonious, or tiiac electoral officials gave sorry returns for money paid thena, Politicians may amuse them selves by trying to apportion the blame as accurately or as inaccurately, as their personal interests suggest, but the average elector looking at the figures finds other matter for neriouB concern. The old. roll gave the country elector ates 363,129 voters, the Metropolitan constituencies 318,786, that is to say, the Provinces were 44,343 votes to the good. The old state of things was bad ; the population and, aB a consequence, the political strength of Greater Mel bourne was a menace. But the perfect ing of the rolls has shown that the evil is far greater than most of us sup posed, The metropolitan e...
