IRISH TOBACCO. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 31 July 1908

IRISH TOBACCO. --. Tobacco-growing in Ireland was a matter which attracted a great deal " of attention a couple of years ago, and: the Department of Agriculture ,for Ireland has been prosecuting ex .,?,perituents since, and has now for disposal, a ,quantity of tobacco man ufactured from the crop grown in various parts of the island in 1900. The 'Irish lent has been manufactur. ed, Into l;ug, roll, cut cavendish, bird's eye, cigars, and cigarettes, and these are ollered for sale. The crop of 1890 sold, after payment of the duty of 8s, per pound, at a price suffciently good to make tobacco growing in Ireland a prolitable crop hhoe.tobacco made from the crop 'of '01900 id not by any means so strong as that, of 1891) and, having been rgrown and manufactured by a spec lilally-appoined expert. -should fetcn a tbotter price. The fault with the first crops was that the leave?s grew too roarseo and the nmanufactured article 'was strong in taste.-Coueptry Life.

CUM ARABIC PRODUCED BY ANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 7 August 1908

CUM ARAB~ICPRODUCED BY AKITS Gum arable is an exudation from certain species of acacia. In order to obtain the gum the stem must be cut or perforated so that the juice may exude, and we are told by Mr. Walter Bulase. who has just been investigating the gum-production of German East Africa. that in the majority of cases the necessary per loration is accomplished by ants, without whose labours, therefore, the world would not get its supply of gum arabic-at least with the pre aent ease. Says IMr. Busso:-" Apart from the rare wounds inflicted accidently by man, animals, storms, etc., all pecretion of gum in this country is provoked by ants. The ants perfor ate the bark of the acacia to gain admittance Into the wood, where they lay their eggs in the excava, tions, which are sometimes of con siderable extent. The acacias with soft wood generally show few wounds of this kind ; the hardwood acias are riddled with them, each perforation being marked with a globule of gum. The ant that thus p...

And, as if to cap all, we have but the other day had an inven tion put forward by an Australian resident that is capable, so it is claimed, of entrapping wireless messages and preventing their transmission, At the moment the latest sensation in connec tion with the " wireless" is furnished by the enterprise of Router's Telegram Company. Although the American Fleet is still in mid-Pacific, we are, by the arrangement of wireless messages, kept fully informed as to the doings and intentions of 'the Fleet, and the Fleet on the other hand is kept well posted up in current Australian'topics.
