CyCLInG CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914
OYCLIINC NOTE~S BY TANGENT. r. A.. Pearson, the well-known New South Wales : long distance road rider, anl holder of the Sydney .Mebourne road record iof 40 hours, is r great *teliever in the three-spccl gear. Pearson con siderds it the greatest cycling invention since the hi d? ent of the Dunlop pneumatic tyre in lSS. In hisi:grSat ride from Sydney to Melbourne, Pearson : rcle every hill, and everyone who has travelled. :ire overland route knows what that means. What * surpricses this ngreat road rider, and also many :other prominlent road men, is that the variable psieed has not caught on in this country to lhe xctent it sihouhl. Pearson thinks that the trouble .is that most riders who have tried them have not .learin how to use them properly and to the best :ds,'antage. There is too nmuch-tendency to switch into tilh'lowcst gear as soon as an up gralde is seen, and then pedal oneself right out, trying to min??liitai1 the same pace as has been obtained iswitl-tlie :inormnal gear, ...

4)I N~~4h ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENCE., Disappointed, Lillydale.-?Runmcrs of strawberries h]lould ,ilwavs be taken from fruit-bearing plants, because barren plants are apt to reproduce their bind. They may not be barren always, but intermittent beanring is decidedly objectionable. There i; a danger that you will lose time by allowing the non-fruitful 'plants (old and young) to remain, thercfore it probably is the better ]policy to cut them out and replace thcrv with good runners from fruit-bearing parent plants. The best runners are obtained from one and two year old plants, nad are those that are produced early in tthe season.

AMERICA AS A MARKET FOR AUSTRALIAN FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914
AMERICA AS A IIMARKET FOR AUSTRAL[AN FRUIT. - In discussing the trade developments likely to result from the opening of the Panama Canal and the lowering of the American tariff, a gentleman who has re cently returned from that country, ex presses the opinion that there will be an opening, among other things, for Austral ian finuit.
