Garden and Field Calendar for January, 1915. By A] Lansdowpe, Seedsman, Goulliurn As we expected, the weather has been unsettled with some heavy rain falls and the heat has been a re cord for Decembgr throughout the State, buit the frequent showers coun teracted the effects of sun and wind, and crops are all promising heavy yields. The.soil is in good order for cropping, and all available land should be sown with something that will be useful for green feed, en silage or green manuring. Dairy men and others cannot possibly have too much in the way of food supplies in the face of a general shortage and certain high prices. Maize or corn is splendid for ensil age or green feed, and grows very quickly. Mangcls or mangel wurzel give immense yields, and are gfand for dairy cows, pigs and all stock; they should he largely grown. Spray ing for cherry tree slug, so often neglected, is very important;' the slug causes the leaves to turn 'rusty and fa'l off, and destroys the vital ity of the ...

Weather Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 8 January 1915
Weather .Notes. Wz are experienoing just noviw 6eimarkable conditioh of weather. Inste'ad of the ex treme heat usual at this time of:year, there is a very low temperature with stoimy rains and a little hail. Last month,'as,we re ported in a recent issue, was. noted for the useful rain which .fell, and now the first month of thenewv year is promising further abundant rains. The high winds which evaporated some of the moisture of the soil after the December rains are at present no panied with heavy rain. The record at No. 2 local observing station for the 24 hours ended 0 a.m. this morning registered 90 points, and the stormy conditions con. tinuing are adding to this magnificient fall. The usefullness of the present rains can hardly be fully estimated. In every respect they must be productive of an abundant growth of grass and cultivated crops of all -kinds, perhaps, such as this district has not experienced for many years past.

WITH WHICH A&RE INCORPORATED QUEANBEYAN TIMEB, ]BUNOENDORE MIRROR AND -CaIrAIN's FLAT MINER FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1915. The War. ALL minor happenings in 1914 have been overshadowed by the terrible war. It burst on a world at ease like a thunderclap and has altered the aspect of affairs in every department of - life. It presents an object les son of the danger to the gen eral welfare that is involved in the nursing of unbridled am bitions, when it is accompanied by the provision of ample means to gratify them. It would be a mistake to imagine that the German :dreams of world Em pire, and of immense aggrand isement at the expense of the small neutral nations, and of France and Britain, were con fined to the Prussian "Jun kers.' They may have been res ponsible for its inception. But they had succeeded in in-doctri nating with them nearly the whole of the nation. No other supposition will account for the wholesale spying carried on by Germans in other lands, .or for the almost fran...
