THE GARDEN. INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 June 1914

THE GARDEN. INFLUtENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. In regard to the experiments with tomatoes at the New York Agricul tural Experimental station, Mr. Wel lington has found that a crop of hy brid plants of the first generation give a larger yield than either of the parental forms, or of the succeeding generations after the "break." The results suggest and seem to warrant the use of first generation seed only if the main object be the production of a heavy crop. Of course, it en tails all the extra care and trouble that artificial fertilisation means ; but Tomato fruits, as a rule, pro duce a large number of seeds, which, so far, is some compensation arainst the extra trouble. Tomato seeds re tain their vitality, it is said, for from three to seven years; therefore it would only be absolutely neces sary for seed-growers to raise every third year a sufficient quantity to cover the needs of a three-year sale. It would appear to be a simple matter for raisers of tomato see'ds to se...

With the Band. Included in the music that the Qneens cliff Town Band has lately been practising are two marches:-' The Cossack,' given by Mr Len Wayth; 'Westbury March,' presented by Mr G. Weedon.

Shortly after two o'clock, those able to attend,!number ing eight, started a program of music that lasted all the afternoon. In the evening selections were played outside and inside the hall prior to'&the starting of the picture entertaipment,

THE FARM AND DAIRY. SILOS AND ENSILAGE. THEIR COMMERCIAL ASPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 June 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. -+-------- SILOS AND ENSILAGE. THEIR COMMEROIAL ASPECT. Silage is fast changing the methods of feeding all classes of live stock. One of the chief advantages of silage feeding is the cheapening of the ra tion of the dairy cow. The succulent silage is much more desirable than the dry, woody butts of the fodder, or even hay with its large amount of crude fibre. Three dairy farmers, whose testimony is here quoted as representative of a number of others, say :-"I am satisfied that the in crease of production of milk and cream has paid for my silo this year. My cows have xmilked the past winter just as if they were on grass." "Si lage saves one-half in the feed bills, and over one-half in the amount of hay eaten." "I find silage excellent for dairy cows. Our cows milk as well in winter as they do in summer ;in fact, they usually gain when we com mence to feed." Besides the cost of the ration being reduced, there is also a reduction in the cost of producing a given amo...

WHAT WE WASH WITH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 June 1914

WHAT WE WASH WITH. One of the few inventions that are not ascribed to foreign ingenuity is that common household article soap. It is said that the ancient Britons were the first makers of soap, and that the Romuans, when they con quered England took the invention back with them to Italy. Most of what we wash with is made from fat, but abroad there are natu fral soaps. There is the soap-root of Spain, the soap-berry of Chili, and the bark of the Peruvian soap-tree. SAt a little town in Mexico, soap ac tually takes the place of copper coin age ! In another part of the same South American Republic the inhabi tants eat soap, finding much nourish ment therein. The French term for soap, "savon" by the way, owes its origin to the town of Savona, in France, where vast quantities of the material were formerly manufactared. 1924. Dip brooms in boiling soap-suds for a few minutes weekly, and they will last much longer than they other wise do. 1924.

Bvigade Events, The fire-brigade helped to make enter tainment for those gathered at the Re-, creation Reserve last Wednesday by running three events, in which great in terest was manifested by the public. There were no ' records' broken by the competitors and the times recorded do not by any means show the. capabilities of the brigadiers. The reason for the failure is put down to the slippery track on which the course was laid. The following are the times of the first three in the difierent events. One-MIan Marshall Event.

MAYOR'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 June 1914

.MAYOR'S DAY. ----, Old custom, we are told, makes life more sweet, and surely the annual treats provided by the re spective mayors of Quecnscliff have come to be regarded as part of the good things to be meted out year by year. On Wednesday last" Mayor aud Mayoress Dewar welcomed a large number of citizens and children at bowling pavilion and recreation reserve. The children were treated in the reserve and every provision made for their enjoyment by means of races and general sports. This year the procession of children was dispensed with, and they assembled on the grounds. " The weather was not altogether that to be desired, being dull and threatening and the ground rather damp. But the little ones seemed not.to care, and judg ing by the merriment throughout the afternoon, enjoyed themselves to the fullest. Refreshments and sweets were handed out, and the children were well managed by the teachers and assistants. The band, which took up a position in the new pavilion, played a nic...

(Al Rights Reserved.) - T HE· Secret Island. A Story of a Strange and Exciting Adventure. By W. Murray Graydon, Author of "Matthew Quin," "The Curse of the Cardews," etc., etc. PART 8. CHAPTER XX. AFTER MANY DAYS. But the young Englishman found none-Mary Ferris excepted-to share his melancholy. that morning. From end to end of the cruiser all was ex citement and eagerness, light-hearted laughter and jesting. Home was in sight--a haven of refuge and rest. Groups of men picturesque in cool, white clothing, stood looking for ward from the bulwarks. The officers moved about with smiling faces, Ja son Gore conspicuous among them in fresh linen and a new suit of blue serge, and with the benignant expres sion of a man who would--not will ingly harm a fly. The gap of the past six weeks, un eventful though it was, requires a brief mention. The fog that had blot ted out the two American men-of war lasted all night, the cruiser steaming through it at reckless speed, and in the morning a desert...

One misfortune and an other happened to the missionaries by unforseen circumstances. Of course, I'm only speakin' of events that took place since I've been. king of the Island. It was in 1865 on the ship Gineral Jackson that I was put in an open boat on the Pacific Ocean, through the schemin' of the Rev. James McBeaser. I was a circus clown and a Baptis'. The ship had stormy weather, got delayed, and begun to run out of water and food. The Rev. James McBeaser was a board, goin' to the islands as a mis sionary-a Sandemanian missionary. He organised a revival, and they all came into it but me, which I couldn't do, as a Baptis'. We kept on havin' bad weather, and" he told the crew that we couldn't expect good weather as long as there was anybody on the ship that wouldn't jine the revival. That turned the sailors against me, and when he advised 'em to turn me...
