THE CARNATION. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 10 January 1914

the carnation. At the Inst meeting of the Northcotc Horticultural Society members listened with interest to the following paper by Mr. G. Magno, of Clarke street:— Fond of all flowers, I am most at tached to the carnation; in fnct my love for it has caused me to be called "a car nation fiend." I know of no flower in the horticultural world which, if treated properly, will give the same quantity of beautiful blooms of such a lasting kind. It is no uncommon thing for a carnation to remain in a perfect state ill the house for a week after it has been cut. What rose or other flower of equal merit will last so long? If the rose is queen of flowers, then the carnation must be king. Some authorities state thatcarnnlions do not thrive in the same bed for very many years. In other words that th'ey take some elements from the soil that cannot be replaced until something else has been grown in their place. Now, ttiis is an important matter to those who have only a limited space. My experi ence...

CRIPPLING THE MUNICIPALITIES To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 10 January 1914

^^^CKiPPLING THE MUNICIPALITIES To the Editor. Sir,—In your issue of the 27th ult. I observed that both the Preston and J/itZroy councils had approved of the Draft Bill for an electric tram service along St George's road to Preston. Fortunately for the districts concerned the Northcote council has yet to speak. Let us hope, in the interests of all, that thiB council, which holds the key to the position and has thu most to lose, will rise to the occasion and view this mom entous question in a saner light. To go on with the proposition, as outlined in the Bill, would be wicked and would al most cripple the already over-burdened municipalities of Northcote and Pres ton. The line proposed, instead of pay ling working expenses, would result in a [loss of thousands of pounds annually. I 1 task, Sir, is there a single person among \ts advocates who would risk £10 of his cash in the venture? Then why ag the municipalities into an expendi |rc of nt loist £70,000. for which no urn pirate ver ...
