A THOUSAND MILES OF RIVER NAVIGATION. HOLIDAYS ON THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914
A THOUSAND MILES OF RIVER NAVICATION. , ? ,,9- ..-- *? HOLIDAYS ON THE MURRAY. BY MIS1S A. HIOWE. -To many Australians this, the monarch of our rivers, remains little but a name, and thc outsider scarcely recognises the great part played by .the stream in the history making and development of Aus tralia. This great stream must be regarded rather as Australian 'thaln as the particular asset of any of the States, though the :destinies of South Australia seem to be more closely bound to it than-those of her eastern sisters; and it is with. this in view, perhaps, that the Tourist Bureau in Ailelaide is taking steps 'to make.the run up idr down thIe river by steam packet' a popular ttip. From Murray-bridge, South Augtralia, the traveller can book right through to Melbourne via the Murray, and can return by rail or steamer direct to Adelaide, or a return passage by st6amer can be'arranged, which occupies twelve days, giving the tourist' ample opportuni tics for seeing the splendid irrigat...

CARDENING NOTES. THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914
CGARDENICG IIOTES. THE FLOWER GARDEN. The flower beds and borders are now requiring pIlenty of water, but not in the form of frequent light sprinkling, which merely compacts tihe surface without reach ing the deeper roots. Take the garden in sections and water a portion of it eachl day, stirring the soil with :ho or fork as soon as it has lost its stikiness. Evening is .the best time to apply water, as there-is time during the night for it to oak in, whereas a great deal is lost by. evaporation when the w atcring is done early in t?tie day. On no accounlit shoidd 'flowrering plaints be allowed to seed; dead flowers must be picked off regularly, .and then sucibl plants as pent~temon,, antirrhinum, and pansy will continmie to flower freely. The life of the sweet pea can also be greatly prolonged b. attention in this respect. Flowering is. to some extent weakening to the plant, but tlhe maturing of seed is much more so.

[BY OUR IIQRTICULTURAL REPORTER.] Tlhe use of artificially heatcd buildings, 'r kilns, for drying raisins is not unknown in other countries, bhlut we have evolved a system of natural curing in specially con structed sheds which is quite without pre cedent, and, judging from tlhe way it is gaining ground, may rightly be claimed as the Australian system.

RAISING ORANCE SEEDLINGS. Some important points to be observed in raising young orange trees from seed are given by Mir. George Quinn, hlorticultural instructor, in thle South Australian *'Joilc nal of Agriculture." A gardener about to start an- orange nursery askls:--l. If he should plant the seeds in the plree he intends togrow them, or must he transplant the seedlings? 2. Do the seeds require any special treat mIent? 3. How long will it take before they are ready for grafting? 4. How. long, from the time thley are grafted, will it be before they are ready for sale? The replies to these questions are:-T'he freshly removed orange seeds are sown in a spe cially prepared bed, usually sunken about 3 iriches below the surface, and a border of boards put around about 1 foot high. A screen of calico is usually used as a cover over these beds.

AN INTERESTING AND PROFITABLE SIDE LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914
AN INTEI'- STING AND PROFIT' ABLE SIDE LINE. As a side line, considering thce .expense of installation, there is no more interesting and profitable business than bee kIeeping:. Not only is this true for the fruit grower and farmer, but to tile residents of cities, those in mercantile and professional lines. Some of the best beckeepers are women. True it is that time and attention and pre liminary knowledge are necessary; but ex perience will be gaiied rapidly when the living bees are studied in connection with printed instructions. A visit to an apiary conducted by a practical beekeeper will fur nish valuable suggestions andt interest in the work. No-one who wishes to derive the greatest pleasure and profit fromn his bees should expect the little fellows to do good work uiless provided with suitable hives. Do not for a moment attempt to keelp bees in hollow logs or plankc boxes; instead have, modern hives, which can be opened from time to time, so that the true condition of your bee...

Most of them :have long since finished the busy season of in cubating eggs and rearing chickens in arti ficia'i brooders Now the young stock is maturing and growing, so that the tedious * aork of -Le poultry fairm is over for a brief spell. Some of my friends will say, "The poultry fancier is always bus.," and in a measure they are right.
