Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY, JUNE 14th, 1924 [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 June 1924

Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY, JUNE 14th, 1924 The recent rainy weather, occurring as it did in the shortest daylight month of the year, left a lot of un pleasantness behind it, in the shape of muddy paths and slushy streets. The conditions are unfortunate, and there is no immediate chance of per manently improving conditions, but amelioration is a good word, much used in these electioneering (lays, and no doubt conditions could be greatly ameliorated by a little attention. In the first place, with the commence ment of the new financial year of the shire fixed in October, the footpaths are overlooked. Footpaths are a de cided winter necessity, but when spring arrives the paths dry up quickly, and councillors are not re minded so much of their delapidated character when framing their esti mates. It is needless to state that in side streets attention to the footpaths is very necessary, and in many cases where asphalt is too costly a little for mation, topped over with cinders or metal du...

Albion Quarrying Company [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 June 1924

AUlbion Quarrying Company -ae- The Albion Quarrying Co., in addi tion to two steam crushing plants on its property at Albion, is erecting an up-to-date electric crushing plant of considerable dimensions, with ro tary batteries. The housing of the machinery and crushing plant is composed of reinforced concrete, and will deal with an increased output of stone. The quarry is the largest in Australia working on the. same seam of stone, and employs a great num ber of amen on the face and numer ous carters and mechanics. It deals expeditiously with the rock handled. Often what was a fifty-ton rock in the morning is reduced to powder by night.. All the metal is crushed to gauge and finds a ready market, with the exception of the powder, for which there is not the demand that its value warrants. The quari.y is worked in an open face to a depth of about 30 feet, and the excavation extends for about, a quarter of a .mile: in a crescent formation.

King Football By Our Special Contributors from Sunshine, Braybrook, Deer Park and Sunshine United Sunshine Again Defeated lBy "WING " A cold, bleak trip to W\illiamstown last Saturday was experienced bjy players and supporters. Whether this was one of the causes of defeat could not he ascertained. However, a weak display of field umpiring was one of the causes of the low scoring by the locals. In any case, our opponents were a good lot of sports, and by playing a fine, fast, open game, ac counted for 'Shine in good style. J. Stevenson was clected captain prior to the game. The following represented 'Shine: Stevenson, Serle, Shorten (2), A. M?ore, Day, Wallace, Henderson, Mas son, McKenzic, Stcanc, Moore, Crick, McPherson, Thaffce, Renton, Souter, Pickersgill.

BROADCASTING [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 June 1924

BROADCASTING Many yearn: ago an old priest entered tile wircless cabin on an At laitic liner and stood for a few mo* nments watching the operator. "What are you doing?" he asl;ed, finally. "Sending a message to Ireland," an swcred the operator. "IIere am I," said the old man, "fightinl the devil all m:y days, and with all my heart and brain. And here you do be playing with him." Hlow much more would that old man have booen struck with fear and wonder if he had been one of the guests in that wireless operator's room in London early in 1023. The devil who was at :ork would surely have daunted a saint-if the spirit plresiding over wireless can be called a devil. Fairy would be better, if Marconi desn't mind being called a fairy.

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 21 June 1924

POULTRY NOTES, By "Tight Feather," So far the attention of our readers has only been directed to utility in poultry keeping, but it might be use ful to give a little consideration to the art of exhibiting. The paramount question in exhibit ing is, "Can the rnovice or beginner compete successfully with the profes. sional ?" This is a dificult question to answer, for everything depends on what know ledge the beginners have of the breed they intend exhibiting. It is sheer folly to show birds and know next to nothing of the points that go to make a winner. Hence it is essential that one should be fully "in the know" before commencing ex hibiting, and in passing it might be said that poultry-keeping would be rather monotonous if it were not for the thought of producing a few win ners, and one can say with confidence that the greatest stimulus is the spirit of competition. The great advantage the profes sional has over the beginner is ex perience, but it is well to remember that in the ma...

MODERN COMBINED DRILLS VARIOUS TYPES COMPARED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 21 June 1924

MODERN COMBINED DRILLS , .-0-*--- VARIOUS 'TYPES. COMJIPArED. (By J.W,D.) In a grain of seed wheat there is only stored .a very limited supply of food to develop the young plant to such a stage as it can manufac ture its own food supply. That stage •is only reached when the young plant :'hus developed green leaf. It will, therefore, be observed how impera. tive it is that wheat should never be planted deeply. So that the crop may be of an evenly robust character, it is as imperative that all ,the seed should be planted at as nearly as possible the same depth, A superficial inspection of the vari ous combined drills on the market to-day would generally leave one theo idea that they were all much the same in their final results. A closer examination of actual results, how ever, would go to demonstrate that the various makes differ considerably in their -adaptability to place all the seedl at approximately the one depth. All the combines practically are so constructed that their tynes ...
