Northern Wheat Harvest. Wheat Storage Certificates. Mr R. Bloomfield Recs, M.L.C., writes to us as follows: [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 14 October 1915

Northern Wheat Harvest. Wheat Storage Certificates. Mr R. BloumfieUl Recs, M.L.C., writes t<> us as follows : The prospects of a record yield ot \vhe;it at the coming harvest are bright and cheering, but tlic pros pects of marketing and financing this valuable project are becoming uncertain and gloomy, due largely to weak and vacillating (iovcrnnient leaders. It i> barely six weeks bctore the northern wheat harvest is upon us. Kverybody knows we cannot possibly have ships to carry away our enor mous surplus of wheat, and the greater portion will have to be stacked and carried forward to late in the year or perhaps beyond the following harvest. Many of the farmers and store keepers in the northern wheat areas of Victoria arc hard up and must realise the wheat for cash on de livery in order to carry on. Does the Government intend leaving things to drift as they did. the im portation of fodder, and allow our wheat to be slumped in December and January ? •If the Governm...

Wheat Breeding. The Technique of "Crossing." [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 14 October 1915

Wheat Breeding. The Technique of "Cross/na." The act of "crossing" two varieties of wheat is regarded by many as a mysterious process re quiring considerable skill and ex perience, but the Plant Breeder of the Department of Agriculture does not seem to agree with that. ! He says the operation is a simple j one that merely demands patience | and care. It is the disposal of the I progeny of a cross, not its pro J duction, that calls forth the jiidg : menl and perseverance of the j plant-breeder. I Crossing is employed to induce , variation in the plant, and since ; the discovery of Mendel's prin cip es of inheritance it has not been looked on as a game of enhance, i ior no character can he expected in ; U.le offspring tli.it did not exist, in ; either a visibly or a latent condition, ; m one of the parents.

The Man on the Land. Irrigation Farming. Laying Out for Furrow Waterings. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 14 October 1915

i The Man on the Land. f| Irrigation Farming. Laying Out for Furrow Waterings. Where tlie furrow is to be the method, the water will be delivered at the highest point of the irrigable land, and it is from this point that channel construction will begin. Generally speaking, head ditches will cross the lines of contour, aud the water furrows will follow them. The Length of tho Run. In determining the directions in which the head ditches shall cross the lines of contour, and the angles which the water furrows shall form with the ditches, the first considera tions will be the length of run and the fall to he given to the water furrows. The length of the run to be given will depend on the fall, and con versely the fall to be given will de pend on the length of run. An Inspector advises that a run of 7)4 chains with a fall o1 four to six inches to the chains, should be taken as a working standard, not always to be attained, of course, but to be approximated. Where the fall is greater the ...

Writing to his mother under date, July6th, Private Dougald O'Brien says:—" 1 am sitting in a dugout in the firing line, the flies arc annoying me, and witli all gear on it is not very comtortablc to write. The Turks are now shelling our positions. I can hear the report of their guns ana-in a few seconds the shells come whistling over head. Tliey are at present shelling the beach about two miles from where we arc. Thev shorten their range and shell our camp but there is very little damage from their shells. The first shell docs all the damage, it gives 110 warning and all the men arc out of their pews but after the first shot they all make for their burrows. We arc all the world like a lot of rabbits, ducking into burrows when a shell bursts about us. You can always tell when you arc safe from them. If you hear them whistling over your head you need not bother. The Turks enjoy firing at the lighters that convey the wounded out to the hospital ships, but they have n...

SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT. A CONTRAST IN VARIETY ITEMS THAT PLEASED [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 14 October 1915

SCHOOL ENTERTAIN MENT. A CONTRAST IN VARIETY ITEMS THAT PLEASED The patriotic entertainment, held in the State School on Saturday evening was quite an agreeable suc cess in regard to its social aspect and financial result. Nothing ambitious was aimed at and the preparation of the children for the parts they took was of but short duration, but, nevertheless, the methods were thorough, and the labors of the teachers assiduous, otherwise the public would not have had such a pleasing programme set before them. The Central idea was conceived by Miss Wilcox and the object originally in view was to provide Christmas comforts for the soldiers at the front, but it being found too late to participate in this movement it was decided then to devote the proceeds to the work of building and fitting of wards in a hospital, for the returned wounded soldiers, which is being built at Catilfield under the auspices of the Education department, and to the local Patriotic Workers' Club, half proceeds goi...
