NINETY=SECOND CHRISTMAS MAN WHO KNEW GORDON AN INTERESTING PIONEER TELLS HIS LIFE STORY [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

MAN WHO KNEW GORDON AN INTERESTING PIONEER TELLS HIS LIFE STORY It was a very, very hot day and the vast array of steps was dreadfully tire- some to negotiate, but the white- haired old figure only took four rests ere he finally reached the main en- trance to the Federal Parliament House. Timidly, and with obvious nervousness, the wide-brimmed felt hat was carefully carried in the right hand; meanwhile the left was busy with a stout ash stick and a red ban- danna handkerchief, evidently filled with valuables.   With great deference he approached the uniformed messenger at the door of Queen's Hall and in a grave and   dignified manner inquired if "Sen'tor Blakey" was in. Directed to the Sen- ate entrance he paused irresolute for a few seconds, and then again braved the fierce messengerial eye, only this time belonging to a different messen- ger. But the Senator was out. The old shoulders seemed to droop just a little more tiredly, and the slight limp to beco...

YOUNG MAN'S SKULL FRACTURED FATHER REMANDED John Donegan, 58, wharf laborer, was charged at the Collingwood Court with having inflicted grievous bodily   harm on Hugh Doengan (sic), his son. Donegan was remanded for seven days. Constable Proudfoot stated that John Donegan called at the police station the previous day at 9.30 p.m. with an iron bar in his hand, and said that he had killed his own son. Wit- ness returned with Donegan to his home in Glasshouse street, and there found the young fellow lying on the kitchen floor in a pool of blood. His skull-was injured. The father again said that he had inflicted this injury. Young Donegan was removed to the Melbourne Hospital. Donegan: The pair of us had been. drinking together all day. Though I was under the influence of drink I have a slight recollection of having struck my son with the iron bar. Mr A. Collins, J.P., said that he was not disposed to grant Donegan's ap- plication for bail. Donegan: But this is the first ti...

DROWNED IN TUB. MOTHER DISCOVERS CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

BROWNED IN TUB. MOTHER DISCOVERS CHILD. Raymond Parsell, 15 months, fell into a tub in which his mother had been washing clothes, and was drowned. Mr Buzolich, the Acting Coroner, found that he was ac cidentally drowned. William Parsell, laborer, of Gold street, Collingwood, said that when he came home from work on Decem ber 18 his little boy was crawling in the passage, playing with a piece of bread. His mother was folding clothes, when she suddenly gave a scream, and, running out, they found the child head first in a tub of water. He must have been leaning on it and toppled over head first. Myrtle Parsell, wife of the previous witness, said she did not notice the child go out, but when she looked through the window she saw his feet sticking up above the edge of the bath. He was a fine, strong baby.

OUR BOY SCOUTS VICTORIA SECTION LOOKING FORWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

, .Victoria section By "HAVERSACK."   LOOKING FORWARD. Many seasonable greetings have been sent to headquarters, and the good wishes are cordially reciprocated. In 1914 difficulties, which are nearly always associated with progress, will have to be met, but with the loyal co- operation of officers and scouts, which has characterised past activities, there is every reason to expect that excel- lent work will be accomplished. Mr Darbyshire Roberts, the Organising   Scout Commissioner, suggests an addi- tional motto, that of a great man, "The utmost for the highest." CAMP ARRANGED. The Organising Scout Commissioner on December 23, by request, attended a meeting of the First Murrumbeena troop and parents, in order to discuss a proposed camp. At first there ap- peared to be some misgivings on the part of the parents, due to the inex- perience of the boys. Mr Roberts out lined a day's work and play in a scout camp, and explained the precautions taken to ensure sa...

Barley Tests [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

Barley Tests Results are available of barley tests made on the experimental area at Longerenong College. The Department of Agriculture considers this crop is worthy of the attention of farmers in the wheat belt, and this year's returns justify the opinion. The cereal was sown in narrow strips across a 12-acre block of by no means the best land on the farm, the soil being chiefly black, typical of part of the Wimmera. The season has been fairly favorable, but not unusually so. During the latter part of the winter and $arly spring—indeed, up to mid-September —there was a dry spell, which severely tested the drought resistance of all sorts of plants. Ten plots were laid out, four in Cape and the remainder in malting barleys. As was to be ex pected, the feed barleys gave the heaviest yields, Oregon returning 78.8 bushels per acre, Shorthead 74.2 bushels, Cape 72.4 bushels, and Square Head G7.8. It is worthy of note that all but the Cape variet}' were the products of selection by Profess...

Place of Barley [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

Place of Barley If the results mentioned in the pre ceding paragraph can be reproduced over a series of years the deduction can he made that barley growing must pay in rainfall district^ similar- to j Longerenong (17.27 inches). As a matter of fact the cereal is consist ently grown in the Nhill district, with an average annual rainfall of only 16.38 inches. The unfortunate thing is that the demand for barley in Aus tralia is limited, and that there is little prospect of an export trade be ing established. Here, under exist ing conditions, it would be inadvisable for wheat-growers to sow large areas in the crop. But at the average prices ruling in Victoria the returns obtained at Longerenong would re- j turn a handsome jjrofit. In South Australia Professor Perkins has fre quently advised agriculturists to give more attention to the cereal, and has pointed out, from records kept for several years, that it pays very well at Rose worthy College.. Our wheat growers should find the plant ...

Times of Sowing [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

Times of Sowing m a private letter, a wheatgrower at Home Rule, New South Wales, makes instructive comments regarding the relationship of his returns to the times of sowing. His best piece of wheat gave 7 bags per a'cre, a good deal went over 6 bags, and then the yields dwindled to 5 bags, 4 bags, undef 3 bags, with the last stripped turning out less than one bag. "The I best lot," he writes; "was put in first, I and though none of it was sown late yet the season developed in a way that had the same effect as if very late seeding had been done. We began sowing on April 5, and finished on June 11. -All that went in before the end .of April yielded not less than 6 bags per acre. - Some of that sown during the first half of May also went 6 bags, and most of it 5 bags. The 4-bag crop was seeded between the middle and end of May, and the rest, the poor, in June. When the last was sown the ground was wet and cold, and soon afterwards the rains began to tail off. July, August and September...

The Season [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

The Season Some years have ela!psed since the Victorian wheat harvest was stripped with so few interruptions from rain. Although the operation began later than usual, owing to the cool," moist, late spring, it will he completed at as early a stage. The quantities har vested and actually hauled to the rail way stations are several times larger than those reported up to the second week of January 1913. Carting has apparently been very brisk, a wise pre caution on the part of growers to es cape the risks of fires and thunder storms. ' Blight, rust and take-all have exacted a fairly h%avy toll in some districts, while shaking out of the grain before stripping has been experienced. All these factors will materially lessen the average and the agregate output, but, never theless, the season just clos ing has been generally pros perous, and will be remembered as an outstanding example of what a well-worked fallow will do. The ave rage will be bushels per acre more than would have been gathe...
