WHEN STORING APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 March 1914
WHEN. STORING APPLES.. : Apples / for keepings-must not' be bruised nor/the skin broken,: there fore certain precautious are necessary In'the picking. A common mistake is to -pull, the stem, off tlie fruit, which leaves a hole in the skin at that point and allows the germs of decay to enter; another is to pluck the fruit in such a. way that the stem bruises it; a twist and an upward movement 6liould Ije given, which will generally dctach the stem from the fruit spur -without damaging either the tree or the fruit. Careless pickers sometimes break off the spurs, and so reduce next season's crop. The fruit sliould not be thrown but placed in the basket, and any that falls on the ground should be set aside for immediate use. There Is 110 better way of storing apples than to spread them in single layers on a shelf in a dry shed, cel lar, or spare roam.

For, whether he's -wielding a sceptre or swiub, I have faith in the man who's in love with his Job.

SELF-SACRIFICE A VICE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 March 1914
SELF-SACRIFICE A VICE. How far is it right to carry the vir tue of self-sacrifice. Many 'women sot no limits to it, and try to secure a monopoly of this particular virtue, heedless of other people's chances to practise it a little on tlieir own ac count. We all know the mother who never allows her daughters to . help in household matters because she wishes them to have a "good time," and up to a certain point she is to lie admired. It is only right that young people should have a certain amount of recreation and amusement; ibut, un less they are to develop grit and tmck ibonc, to say nothing of an unselfish spirit, they must not have life made too easy for them. The world's great men and women liave not come from the'wealthy, leisured classes—far from it. They liave sprung from those who knew how-to "toil terribly," who have had hard times in their youth, and have thereby developed character. Mothers who sacrifico themselves in order to give the girls and iboys this good time are re...

WHAT FRUIT TREES REQUIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 March 1914
WHAT FRUIT TREES REQUIRE. The most essential elements for the production of fruit, are nitrogen, potash, phosphoric acid and lime. Ni trogen encourages leaf and wood growth, which are essential to the development of the tree, and to the production of the'best quality of fruit. Polash, an essential constituent in the growth of fruits.' constitutes a large 'proportion of the ash of the w'ood and more than 50 per cent, of the ash. of the fruit, and is also as sociated with the development of fla vor ill the fruit. Phosphoric acid is essential to the development of the tree; lime is not in itself an essen tial ; element, but assists In liberating, plant food. On a soil deficient in :lime, growth often continues so late that the wood does not mature nor the fruit ripen properly.
