The Gold Vultures. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 February 1914

The Gold Vultures. By Fred C. Smnle. Jim MntHoson and I sat in a recess sipping our drinks and enjoying the cool stillness. Outside an occasional cart rumbled by, and onec a flock of sheep plaintively bleated their way pus* bound for somo green fields outside the town. No one elao was in the private bar and I think wo wet- both nearly asleep when the glass door at the lar end swung onen and a bulky motorist en teved. lie removed his goggles, and, as lie blinked relicvcdly. l saw that one eye was missing, A crimson patch of ticsh showed whero the goggles had veil, but a Tvlrito layer of dust coated the remainder of tho new-comer from cap to toe. After the glare outside our corner was urobahly dark to him, and I could see tliat we were unobserved. "A large, long -drink, missie," lio snid in a fat, husky voice. "Same as yon brewed for mo this morning." I felt .Tim start and nudge im» quiet ly. 1 looked at him, but he motioned me to remain .silent. Producing a pen cil ho wrote on the ma...

WHITE ANTS AND FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 February 1914

WHITE ANTS AND FRUIT'TREES. Open out the soli and dig in a few pounds - of! kain|it (German pot ash). It will: keep them away, and kill a number by contact; at' the same , time acting as a good .manur?. Bisulphate of carbon would not last long enough; it7 would certainly kill all the white ants that came In con tact ' with it, 'but if put too ^ clos'p might kill the trees too,- and it would be expensive. Apterite is of little value in dealing with wilite anti. Mr. Froggart (Government Entomolo gist) says be has seen trees with tlite whole of the Inner, portion of the trunk piped by white ants, , hut- thje bark and sapwood aliv« and growing crops of fruit, the only danger, 'being .that they may snap oft in a wind.

THE PIGGERY. Profitable Rearing. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 February 1914

THE PIGGERY. Profitable Rearing. The whole secret In rearing profit able pigs is. to. get well-bred'ones,. and fby. consistent feeding keep them going without a check until'they arc sent to market. Perhaps the most prolific breed? are Berkshlres, York shires, and Tamwortbs. Excellent bacaners are obtained1 by crossing I Tamworths: and. Berkshires. There Is no dubt that the Berkshires are I general favorites, but it must be re membered that the favorite does not always win the cup; and, after giving the Berkshltes credit .for- many good points, it -will, perhaps, toe found that the most useful types are the Middle York and the York-Berkshire crosf, because the Yorkshire will grow in to a first-grade: bacon pig on less feed than any other, .breed, and - in less time. In Crossing. Yorkshires and Berkshires, it'<is found to be tlie 'best plan to use the Berkshire boar, because the Yorkshire soV 1s ai fbet ter mother than the Berkshire, • and requires very little to keep her i...

Gyc'ing and Motor Notes. [By Our Spcciftl'CorreHpondont.] Some very fast times were recorded Inst Saturday oil 11 road near Adelaide in connection with the annual speed trials organised by the South Australian Motor Cycle Club. Half a mile was negotiated by W. 15. Ilandnll on a .'!) h. p. " Riulge " with full touring equip ment oil, in 21 1 — i> seconds, equal to (Hi iniles an hour. In the stripped machine class, E. E. Koster on a li.p. " Kent " covered the half mile in 201—5 seconds, equal to a speed of OH. 17 miles an hour. These two performances are the fastest yet recorded in Australia, but would not be accepted as records in Europe ; for straightaway speed' tests have to be ridden in both directions, and the mean time taken. This is to overcome advantages thatmavbo derived from favorabie wind, gradient, etc. It wns a pity this wns not done in Adelaide, for the times recorded nre exceptionally good for the power of the machine used.
