FACT ABOUT MISTLETOE [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914
PACT ABOUT SnSTLETOE A singular thing concerning mistle toe. called attention to by "The Gar den," is that, although it occurs on a wide range of trees and is so very common on the apple, yet it is never found on the pear. Some attempts to grow mistletoes on pear trees were made last year in Messrs .Tames Veitch and Sons* nursery at Langley, and the results were so remarkable that the subject has since been brought before the scientific committee of the Royal Horticultural Society. Mistletoe seed was sown on a number of pear trees, and in many instances germination took place. In no case, however, did the mistletoe get beyond the stage of germination, and no leaves w»re de veloped. The effect upon Oie pear was very noticeable, for the mistletoe, in its attempt to establish itself, killed all the tissue- of the tree-stem just within the bark, completely encirc ling the stem. All growth was killed above the point where the mistletoe had germinated.

One of the largest btish-fires everl experienced in the district broke out last week within a quarter of a mile of the Egertou township. It started in the vicinity of the old Sister Rose mine, where the timber is fairly thick, and travelled in an easterly direction. The fire, which was of a small compass when it broke out, got be yond the efforts of a few residents who assembled, and gaining strength it travelled with remarkable rapidity through Air H. X^e Marshall's grass paddock. Here a large band of fire-figlHers made fire-breaks, and it was with some difficulty that the dwelling and stables were saved.
