There was a rise of %d to %d per bushel, and several hold era asked 3/9. Shippers were prepar ed to pay 3/814, and some shippers would give 3/8%. The bump in mill ing wheat is largely due to unfavor able crop reports from the Argentine. The clearness of milling wheat is re flected in the rate for best chick wheat grade. Second milling, New South Wales old wheat, is now almost a dead letter on the Sydney markets, and the dealings are now in new wheat almost wholly. ; Heavy sales are talcing place in Sydney and sub urbs of new wheat, and many bakers I anticipate a rise in quotations.
PHYSICKING FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 9 January 1912
PHYSICKING FRUIT TREES. The system of plugging apple trees with sulphur as a means of ridding them of the woolly aphis pest lias had considerable trial in this State, and numbers of growers report satisfactory results. Now a Canadian paper speaks of this method of. treating other para sitic diseases as follows:—"With a half-inch bit he bored a hole in tho trunk of some of the trees 8in. or lOin. deep, in a direction slanting downwards, and filled tho hole with sulphur made into a paste, ramming iti tightly. This was done about 15 months ago. This season the trees are free from any disease oxcept a few poach leaves affected with curl. There is no sign of San Jose scale, black aphis or brown scale. They are reported to bo brighter .in color, have made better growth, and carry at least 30 per cent, more fruili of hotter quality than the others. All the other trees were sprayed with different washes, but are not nearly so clean and healthy looking as the ones treat ed with sulphur." It ...

NEWS FROM ALL PARTS. TEMORA. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 9 January 1912
NEWS FROM ALL PARTS. TEMORA. -Mr. A. Hunt's residence, a mile from town, was destroyed by fire on Monday night. The furniture was insured for £50 in the Alliance Com pany. It is not known if the building waa insured. The origin of the fire is unknown. A farmer in this district has made an estimate of the value of the ma chinery in use in the province this season. He says that In the seven districts there are about 400 machines working, and the value—new and second hand—is £18,400. The horses employed in stripping and carting £17,000, the bullocks £11,000. If these figures are correct, they afford a good idea of the advance that has taken place in the province during the last five years. And yet, this great plateau is only on the fringe of development. The early sowers in fallowed land are stripping much more wheat than appearances indicated—quite a num ber have bagged 30 bushels per acre. On the Bland, 10 and 12 bags per acre of excellent quality are being filled. It is expected tha...
