BELGIUM TRAINING SHIP L'AVENIR IN PORT LIFE OF A CADET [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

PORT liIRE OF A CADET Li Avenir the coming. In the name of the Belgian training ship, now berthed at the South Wharf, is contained the aspiration of a nation.; • Not so long ago the Belgian Parlia ment passed a heavy Appropriation Bill in connection with coastal de fences. After .that a navy became the object of national: ambition. Belgium, though a manufacturing country of great wealth in proportion to population, has a small mercantile fleet and no navy. But the prospect of absorption by neighboring nations has little attraction for the independent State, and a navy is hoped for, longed for, worked for by all. First step is the creation of officers, Belgian born, who in time, by training, will be capable of holding any position in the navy . to be. Li'Avenir is the second training ship commissioned by the Belgian Government. The first, the Coni te de Smet, named after a popular Frime Minister, foundered in the Bay of Biscay in 1906. Few of those on board were saved. Belgian parent...

IjEAF SPOT OF APPXjES t> ■ - REMEDIAL MEASURE?: Leaf spot of the apple is a fungus disease that causes a deal of damage. j A pamphlet issued -by the British j Board of Agriculture states that tho trunk, branches, leaves and fruit are ■attacked. On the trunk and branches the fungus causes a roughening of the bark, either as local patches, or ex tending for a considerabl3 distance, de- i stroying the bark and exposing ihe wood. When a branch is girdled, the portion above the wound dies It also occurs or. slender twigs. The fungus causes a brown rot of the Cruit, com mencing as a small spot which usually spreads over the whole fruit. The fruit may be attacked while on the tree, but the fungus is most abundant on fallen •fruit, where it produces spores in. great abundance, which infect the tree i the following season. On the leaves the first indication of infection is the presence of minute, dark purple spots, which gradually in crease in size, usually retaining a more or less circul...

THE KITCHEN GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

THE KITCHEN GARDEN The weather has not been favorable for vegetables. Many promising plots of French beans, peas, potatoes, cab bage, and tomatoes have failed as the result of hot, withering winds. Far ther sowings of French beans may be made during the next fortnight. After tha^t ft will be too late. These plants, and tomatoes cannot stand frost. Their period of usefulness ceases when the weather becomes cold in Autumn. It msually takes 12 weeks from the sow ing of seed until the first lot of pods on French beans are fit to pick. Beds started about the middle of Jan uary will hecome profitable about the middle of April. That is as late as it is advisable to take risk with the weather. Tomatoes are subject" to similar condi tions. It is therefore almost too late to 'make further plantings of tomatoes - this year. French beans can be made to bear over a long season if the pods are gathered as soon 'as they are full sized. The plants should be relieved of sbme of the produce every day...

THE ORCHARD Seasonable Work [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

Seasonable Work By "CULiTUS.* - THE ORCHARD * Trees that were planted last season are now at a critical stage. If well cared for during the first summer a strong root system will be est#.blishe 6, and the young- orchard will make rapid headway next year. Neglect at this period is generally harmful. In many instances young fruit trees are left to take care of themselves during the warm months. They need more attention than those that have been in the ground several years. If the soil is permitted to get dry the surface feeding roots will perish. This can be prevented by working the land between the rows into a fine tilth. The ground for a distance of five or six feet from the stem of ea.jh tree should be covered with a thi3k layer of mulch. It will retain moisture and keep the soil suitably cool. If all trees cannot be dealt with in this way an effort should be made- to protect recently-planted orange and lemon trees. Citrus trees must be kept in a ous growing condition from tha#4§x^...

THE COMING SEASON. • v .FAVORABLE PROSPECTS. QUESTION OF CASES. By "'CULTITS." , In a few weeks the export of fruit from Victoria and the other States will commence. The season promises to be more than ordinarily favorable. In some part's of this State the yields will be " comparatively light. Heavy crops will be gathered in other places, and the quan tity available for export will equal, if it does not exceed, last year's oversea trade. The produce is developing satis factorily, and there are indications that the quality of- apples, pears, and plums will be much better than for some years. The first shipment is dated to leave Melbourne for London by the steamer Argyllshire on February 11. A week later the steamer Rhineland will . take apples and pears from Melbourne to the German markets. After that con signments will be despatched at regu lar intervals until the end of April.

CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS . Plants'In pots, tubs, and boxes need a deal of fresh air in summer. Many are injured by being kept too closely under cover during* the warm months. Exposure to the direct rays of the sua is harmful. Adequate protection must be provided. An old shed or a shaded verandah makes a useful ventilating place for delicate foliaged plants. When transferred to the open ther6 is a .danger of the leaves being scorched. The greatest ^ injury is likely to happen from an undue heat ing of the pots. - The rays of the sun create a degree of heat that seriously affects the tender rootlets at the outer edge of the ball of earth. - Tuberous rooted begonias and coleus plants will not be seen at their best unless placed • out of doors freely at this period. A layer of wet bagging will keep the pots suitably cool on .the hottest days. Caterpillars are often a source "of annoyance in the conservatory and plant house in summer and -autumn.
