EVE IN THE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 February 1934

— o ? : ? ; ? ? EVE IN THE GAfeDEN. 1 Women- who garden are always nice to know! r They talk 'slips' and 'cut- tings' instead of social scandal. Once '? the garden is mentioned the juiciest bit of local gossip simply hasn't a look in. Modern Eve in her garden, ,v in fact,»is as harmless and innocent as.-i \ the other one in Eden — even, though she grows apples . . . 9 o That is the view of Miss Minnie Pal lister, a writer well known in Labor ? circles. . ' And she knows quite a lot of women, gardeners. One 'across the way'. has- a perfect garden comprising every-*' thing — rockery, pool, greenhouse, and ? herbaceous borders 'exactly like the picture on the packet.' Things are put ' in and taken out just when they ought to be.

SEASONED CASE MATERIAL. PROPOSED KILN DRYING. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 February 1934

: SEASONED CASE MATERIAL. ? PROPOSED KILN DRYING.; ? ?.'..5015 ' I'.' .'-v. xTfl .ithe Edito'r.'lc' ib. Sir, — Anyone not conversant with the position would be led to believe from the recent press report of the State Fruit Advisory Board discus1 siori that the local timber cannot be seasoned except by a kiln process. To date there is no known artificial system of seasoning our timber thoroughly that can be carried out at a reasonable cost, but the timber can be air dried by ordinary atmos pheric conditions and' sold to grow ers quite as cheaply as imported ma terial. It isf important that experi ments should be carried out, but this is the work of the Federal Govern ment through the Industrial and Re search Council, as the benefit of economical seasoning would be as much the advantage of other States as to Tasmania. The reason that greater supplies of seasoned timber from our own forests are ,not available to-day is owing to the laxity of enforcing the regulation regarding the expor...

' The girl,' lonely and uncomfortable as a fish out of water, was leaning against the .wall, framed against the dark oak, when the hostess took pity on her. 'My dear,' she said, kindly, 'you look just like an old Rembrandt.' 'Is that so?' retorted the girl, sharp ly. 'Well, you don't look^ any too darned snappy yourself.' The plumber was a mild sort of a man, but he could not get away from 4 the fact that his assistant' was consti tutionally lazy. For a long time he said nothing, but at last he could cpn tain his exasperation no longer. 'Lumme, Bjll,' he complained, 'you get on my nerves, standin' there , with both 'ands in your pockets!

THE FIRES. CONQUERED BY RAIN. SPLENDID SERVICES OF VOL UNTEERS. The bush fires which raged through the Derwent Valley, causing such havoc and untold grief and distress, have now subsided, and the position is again safe. Last Tuesday rain commenced to fall at Fitzgerald and other centres, completely extinguishing all the fires, except . a few old stumps, which are barely smouldering. At a public meeting held at Fitz gerald on Saturday evening, special votes of thanks were passed to all those who so readily responded to the appeal for relief. Mr J. Gourlay was in the chair, and it. was unanimously decided to form a deputation and wait on the Minister for Railways and urge the extension of the railway, also to has ten relief for those settlei's who suf fered so severely during the fires, and are now lett with practically nothing. Special' mention was made of the splendid work rendered by the gang of fire-fighters from New Norfolk, under the leadershin of Trooper Sproule, who, being an ...

V : THE' SENSE vQF. smell. | ' .'???f-'lt ' ' ' ?' ' ' ? V ? ? . By a Naturalist. ; ' ' . . The strength of senses .varies enor mously in different people. Some of us are practically ear perfect, with others the sense of sight is the strongest; those who have poor sight and hearing have the sense of touch greatly developed, but in the world of wild creatures the sense of smell always predominates. If your dog could speak he would tell you that his world is made up of a series of scents. He could pick up your tracks for miles and not make a mistake. In the wild it is Rr.ent. that helna thfi male to find his mate, scent that tells him an enemy is approaching, and scent that | leads him to his prey. Some -animals are provided with scent glands, and by leaving minute traces of this on -the ground as they travel they are able to find their way back over long distances. I have often 'seen the badger pause in his tracks to leave a tiny trace of scent on ob jects he has passed, and on exami...
