COMPULSORY TRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
* COMPULSORY TRAINING. Sir,-A letter under above heading in your issue of the' 20th inst., and "Wrhich will be read by most of your subscribers, seems to me to indicate a.surrender of British sentiment to the military inter est that is when looked' into, and~ not till then, aota most disturbing natuire. Our historical retrospect is a sad con fession- of oppressive tyranny, drastic suppression of opposition 'thereto ulti mately culminating in an acknowledge mlent of the great right of every man's claim to liberty of conscience, freedom to serve or withhold from .service; buy. and: sell as he pleasedf in earlier stages of :the struggle to a restricted extent, but later on widening out till one nationality was, in comparison to the rest of the world, symbolical of free dom; the long intervals of persecution and suppression between each step in ad vance, indicating the terrible persist ency of the struggle against despotism bitter conditions under which grew our syste'm of Trial by Jury...

THE STONE CRUSHER. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
THE STONE CRUSHER. SIR,;-I see by the last isste of the "News" a reportabout the stone crusher whicih is installed at Fairfield, stating that the ratepayers will feel highly pleased with-the progress that this im ported machine is making. Can the council feel satisfied with 4 yards an hour, which is as costly as hand broken metal, if not more costly the way they are working it P Some of the ratepayor, are not fast asleep just et? " : lbocal made machine te ~iine ? tn?e can do 11 yardgau hoiu. with ease, and with half the power, to driveit.- To prove this let them. go over to Adam's quarries, or Brunswick, Richmond, Collingwood and dozens of other places-but keep away from Northcote or Preston, as they agr in the same fix as Heideb~h coancil. So the ratepayera of Langridge street and qther bay bllocksl can sit well back, as it will be years before this pea nut cracker can crush enough to do the sides of the Heidelberg road,-Yours, dc., WA'(EPAYER.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. ELTHAM WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. We do not hold ourselves responslble for, or identify ourselves with. the opinions expressed by our correspondent. ELTHAM WATER SUPPLY. SI,-I have read Mr A. H. Price's rather amusing and, to say the least, ridiculous statement in your paper con cerning the water supply to the township of Eltham. He'states that information is dificfult to obtain. I did not give the figur~s and information because I. con sideres;it was incomplete. The figures appeared in the press by error. The rate payers~will certainly be given an oppor tunity -to inspect the scheme at the proper time, the requirements of the LocalGbvernment Act will be faithfully carried out, and Mr Price's rash state. ment that-a 5/ rate in the pound is to be levied will be exposed. ,Mr Price has referred to us getting a better scheme, from where I would like to know, and if Mr Price does know, then why did he -rniot advocate same when he had water laid on to Greenaborough. For the in formation of ratepayer...
MATTERS OF MOMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
MATTERS OF MOMENT. The cable flashes to us the news that President Wilson has on behalf of the United States and himself sent very hearty birthday greetings to King George. This is as it ought to be, and long may the note of good fellowship between the two great rulers and their respective couhtries be accerintLc is th desire of ?Ml patriots and peace lovers. i"t is wel' that tlp old feud and the stupid blunderthat led to the sepa ration of our cousins from the motherland should be forgotten. President Wilson is recognised to be a farseeing statesman of.noble peace loving ideals. The hand of brotherhood that he offers to Britishers will be warmly grasped, not because we need help. but be. cause our hearts pulsate with a warm sympathy with the better ideals and aspirations that his great country is under his able leadership striving tor. As this old world has swung on her way from chaos and dark ness to order and light, it is good to feel that wise leadership is working out in the so...

FOOTBALL. GREENSBOROUGH v. IVANHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
FOOTBALL. GREENSBOROUGII v. IVANHIOE. The return match between the above teams was played on the ground of the former under the most favor able weather conditions.- The game at times was strenuous enough to satisfy the most exacting enthusiast. The umpire, Bishop, was far .too lax, and it speaks.volumes. for the self-restraint- and - sportsmanship of both teams that the game did not degenerate into a rough and tumble:. As it was there was too much leg and elbow work. It was a common oc curreilce to see a player on the ground holding an opponent by the leg or some other handy grip. In fact, it looked as if some of thile players were anxious to introduce niew meth ods into the game-something of the "catch as watch can" principle--ut we hope these methods will not catch on as they would spell good-bye to good football. The Arent quarter was marked by a lot of scrambling play. Ivanhoe opened by securing a behind. Greens Sborough responded with another. For Ssome time the play was too co...
PRUNING. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
PRUNING. After the orchard i pl3~pted, and towards th! spring, the top should be prluned to balanice it with the root system. Many a tree has failed be cause it has not:been cutiback as it should be. Some'atleast.6f the root system has been cut away, and it is unreasonable to expect the rer.aiing roots to supply a. \.?tai:ned 'i. It will be. fSund that the tree re ceived from the nursery belong to two classes: (1) the whipstick, and (2) the tree with the formed head. The whipstick should be shortened back, selecting a good bud tq·ut to, In the second class of.tree, the head should he retained if it is at the re quired height, but the limbs should be shortened back to leave three shoots well distributed round the stem. Peaches and Japanese plums should be a little shorter than apples, pears, and cherries, which are usually cut to knee-high, leaving three or four scaffold limbs. These limbs should be cut backtaccording ~ the growth of the .?aker. being cut harder than theS?tronger; th...
FAIRFIELD v. ALPHINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
EAIRFIELD v. ALPHINGTON. Last Saturday afternoon the above teams met in strenuous contest on .0e grT!un of the latter. The match was somewhat marred by the wret ched condition of the field. The Heidelberg Council, in its endeavor to encourage wholesome sport and to cater for the sporting proclivities of the district had recently had the grounds top-dressed. Unfortunately for Saturday's game, a recent top dressing does not give ideal condi tions .for a match, ap4 the players t'th aiap consi:eralityrlThere ivas a large' ssemblage of.spectators *lho displayed unusual interest and enthusiasm, and closely watched the var ing .stges of the closely cbntis ted'game; Eairfield gas fortunate in being able to put a very strong team into the field. Alphington, on the other hand, was weakened by the absenae of two or three of their best men, The first quarter opened with Fair field making a promising attack WuIcu r?.ouitu 111 a goal. ine oau was rushed up Alphington end, where a mark was recorde...
THE QUESTION OF STAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
THE QUTESTION Oe STAKtING. If the trees are to be staked, the stakes should be on the side of the prevailing winds, and not on the lee ward side, so that when the tree. is not be constantly beating against the stake, to the injury of the bark and buds. A piece of hesian should be wrapped around the young stem, and the string tied round that and then to the stake. -There are those who prefer a diagonal stake to an up right one, and if it is used it should be placed so that the strain with the prevailing wind will work against the stake-not pull frgo~ it. Stakin mnist always be done so s t'o mhiunise, as muich s possile, damage to the tree, loss of a bud pr tw- frqm. oue side of which may penmapetly spoil its shape, • A tree should never be set hastily, as a few minutes more time is a very little matter.in its life, though it man. hav an important influience on the re sults.

TOPICS OF THE WEEK. HOCKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
Cb1 Pews. PUBLISME EVERY SATURDAY MORNING TP~raPHON--Heidelberg 6x. - S4TUITDA, J1T..W ., 1914. TOPICS OF THE WEK . iROOKEY. On Saturday last the Fairfield A team journeyed to East St. Kilds to play the latter team. As S. Casey was indisposed the Fairfield team was a man short. This did not aflect them to-a great extent, as they came out victorsdby 6 goals to nil. Thompson, Le Masurier and Besley were most prominent for the winners. To morrow the A team will meet the unde. feated East Malvern team at the North. cote Park, and a brilliant hockey match ought to be witnessed. The B team were npt as successful as the A team last Saturday. ThJey met Tiversity on ihUe..niversity groimds, but the stuiden~is proved too accurate in system and hitting, defeating Fairfield by 5 goals to 2. It is to be hoped that the Fairfield B's took a lesson from their defeat, and recognised that stick practice is one of the cief things to work at. -
A FIRM "PLANT." [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
A F~IRM~ "PLANT." Many an orehard has failed to thrive because the earth ha' not been propeirly firmed about the newly set' tree. A fair amount of soil should be thrown into the hole in order to thoroughly protect the. roots from injury, and this should be firmed down, more added,; .and that (also firmed. The last few-shovelsful of earth should not be 'tramped, but should be left in a loose condition that will receive and retain any rain that falls. Farmyard manure should never be placed in the hole with the tree, but should he spread on. the surface or lightly worked in. The. fertilising agents will become available as re quired, and the residue, after provid ing a useful mulch through the sum mer, will plough in next year .to form humus. To get the tree in its. correct posi tion the staking board witlh the V is' most satisfactory. It use has beeen described before, but anyone who would like further-information can be provided with a leaflet on applic.?ion to the Department,
THE ACTUAL PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
THE ACTUAL PLANTING. The holes in which the trees are to be planted should be of ample size, but. on the lines already described they should not be "pot-holes," nor need they be if the lahd has been worked in advance as they should be. Sufficient depth should be given . to allow the tree to be set at the sami depth as it was in the nursery, and in throwing-in the last.of the earth;: allowance may be made for the sub sequent settling down of the soil: The maxrk on the bark indicating previous depth is always plainly visible. A glance should be given at the roots before the tree is planted, and any that'are showing too much.growth underground should be root-pruned a; little, but. only to thin them out; bruised or broken roots should be cut away, as a clean surface heals better than a ragged one. The cut should be made so that the cut sur face will face downwards. Twisting or crammiing the-roots in to the hole is very unsatisfactory. A little soil should be thrown in first to Iform a c...
THE ORCHARD. PLANTING YOUNG TREES. THINGS THAT AFFECT PROFITS. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
T:HE OFBCKARIQ., PLANTING YOUNG TREE. THINGS TIAI.AT AFFECT PROFITS. A few practical suggestions offered by the Government Fruit Expert on the planting of young trees may be of use to those who intend to under take such work during the next few we9k.s Il;'iis an essential that the field should have been well ploughed and subsoiled. Many orchards have been started in this country with only a shallow ploughihg as a surface cnulti vation, and a series of holes in which tq get the. treesbifi ~in mt l obvioius that under such conditions the results cannot be as satis8factory as if plenty of cultivated soil had been provided for the development of the roots. Planting in holes is particularly in jurious in the case of stiff, clayey land, for water collects in the holes and caunn get awayythirough the im pervious soil that encloses it, the result being that the growth is stun ted a'nd unhealthy. Thorough pre paration certainly costs more.money, but the orchard is being planted for a genprat...
THE OUTER CIRCLE RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 27 June 1914
THE OUTER OCIRCLE -RAILWAY. The following letter, from the pen of Mr. R. F. Millaie, appeared, in Thursday'' " Age":- Sir,--lR?efering to the report of an absurd proposition, approved of by the Heidelberg and Kew councils and the Victorian Railways Depart ment, to remove the outer circle rail way line, and convert it into a road, the VL uri:l: Ralw:!ays guara-_teei:ng not to w.::t h?t track for at least five years. The outer circle railway line cost over £297,000 about 20 years ago. The four-mile section, proposed to be demolished, probably cost over £120,000. It serves an area of S to 14 square miles of the finest resi dential and Yarra Valley land within the four to seven mile radius of the G.P.O.. Melbourne; it is capable of accommodating population up. to 50,000; it would be as heavily popu lated now as Canterbury and Box Hill districts if ever given any reasonable assistance by the Railways Depart ment. The line terminates at Fair field station, which has low rate fare, and-far...
