POLICE AND CRIME [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

POLICE AND CRIME .... . .. ^ Again Brisbane's police authorities hare complained that their force is nndermaMiod, and that the essential work of policing the city is j hJMercd by tlie number of odd jobs habitually tacked on to a constable's i routine. In almost every capital in Australia this dual complaint is uttere-i j annually, but that reiteration does not invalidate its rightful claim. The j - police do hare to undertake, difficult and sometimes danger otta work, j and their efforts in ' policing are occasionally weakened by the addition \ of extraneous duties. , In. tides of a strike, an epidemic, or a general election- the police do all Borts of work at all sorts of hours, and possibly many citizens fail to' appreciate how the guardians of law and order are endeavouring io protect iftem from'-eyi! influences. 'As to the odd jobs heaped upon ' . . the coDScientijous constable, it has been shown that the police in Queensland - 'fill at times no fewer than !*6 billets, which tan...

ESSENCES: The Latest Books PINE-NEEDLES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

ESSENCES : the Latest Books \ PINE-NEEDLES. From the Far Xortn there liave eonis to me' to-day yellow briar roses, packed for safety in a boxful of pine-needles. The little green 6praye, with their yel low stars, bruyr . the . remote ' sweetness and the pure' mountain freshness of & house garden in Perthshire. But when I had arranged them in tall-stemmed glasses, it was the box of loose pinc ncedlee I held longest in my hands. The scent of those pine-needles — tip epell of scent upon memory — what does it mean? Long-hidden moments lived again; The past sprang up — an unsup planted. living thing. In one moment I thought I mast weep for those lost pine woods — the green shadows of them i — the majestic bush of them — the deep j deep entrances they offer. ! But in the moment after my heart rose to a Te Deum — for thi» miracle of remembering them. 'The House of Far Pistancoi,' by Florence Drummond.

STofc only Hare ballads. . «ueh a« ' The Iiost .Cbotd^ and 'Oh, Promise Me,' dropped, clean out j of the current musical repertoire, but the old musical evenings have also. given way to other pastimes. Perhaps the dropping of the musical evening is not an unmixed loss, for it means that no longer is the innocent listener wearied by the irrepressible amateur tenor who once uncoiled his scroll of songs on the least provocation- Also, the soulful pairs who once wailed, **6h, That We Two Were Maying/' are no longer at large. . Bat why should all the fine old songs be forgotten in the rattle and blare of modern dance music?

JUNIOR—FIRST PRIZE. THE GALL OF THE WILDS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

JUNIOR— FIRST PRIZE. THE CALL OF THE WILDS During Exhibition week the circus was a source of much attraction and enjoy ment. This was the first time I had o«nn if 5ni-1 Vmurlrfids of children with their parents wove, like myself, enchan ted by the a.nimals. But out of all the thousands who must have seen them, I wonder how many people stopped to think of how those animals were sining away their lives, and yearning, as no imprisoned man ever yearned, for free dom, sweet, beautiful freedom! Ah! how few of us, who are used to doing what we think right, and going where we please, can have any idea what torture it is for Nature's children of the wilds to be' deprived of their liberty. A bird in a cage during the summer months appears to be happy and con tented, but as soon as winter approaches some natural in_stiucfc warns it that food for its mates will be getting scarce, and that they must fly off to warmer and more plentiful lands. How the poor ' little creature must long to accompany...

SENIOR.—FIRST PRIZE. WHITE AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

SENIOR.— FIRST PRIZE. WHITE AUSTRALIA Without doubt, one of. the most deter mined ambitions of all true Australiaus is the maintenance of a 'White Aus tralia' policy; that is the desire to ex clude? for all time, from this beautiful, rich, and sunny land coloured aliens of all nationalities. Before the war Aus tralia was a comparatively insignificant island, but the supreme sacrifice of 60.000 of her finest type of men has brought her liberty, democracy, and a place amongst the leading nations of the earth.

Have the bed in the open so that what ever plauts are raised will be hardy ai.d in a fit condition for transplanting into their flowering beds. Many growers make tlio mistake of raising their plants iu a shaded or semi-shaded spot, and the result is that the young plants are generally weakly and suffer greatly' when put out ijito sunny beds.

Vegetable Garden Notes [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

Vegetable Garden Notes — ♦ — DuriDg the hot. months of tlie year, hoeing, watering and. mulching are the necessary duties for successful pro duction of vegetables. Hoeing between growing crops is of the greatest help. Besides keeping down weeds in the soil, it keeps down weeds and aerates the soil. It gives free root action for the root3 to go down to the cooler depth of the cutivatcd soil. It is an easy matter to piek out a well and ceeply cultivated soil in the summer months. The vegetables arc healthy and robust and have not the pinched ap pearance seen in shallow worked soil. It does not matter how mueh wat^r is given vegetables in summer; if the soil is not. deeply cultivated they will never be robust and healthy. They cannot stand the hard, effects of heat and dry weather, they wilt, becomo parched looked and are generally miser able specimens that are hardly worth gathering. Mulching is resorted to as a means of conserving moisture during hot weather. This operation consists ...

Watering Flower Beds [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

Watering Flower Beds ♦ — When watering newly planted plants, consider. the quality of the soil, whether clayey, medium, or light and sandy; the position of the beds, whether in an open. dry: place, or in a sheltered or rather moist ouc: the condition of the plants, whether well rooted or not when first put out, and the condition of the soil as regards moisture at the time the plants arc put out. If the soil is care fully examined at noon each day it will be easily seen what watering is re quired in the evening. A light over head syringing will freshen up the plants wonderfully if given about two hours before sunset on a fine day. When water is really needed, give enough 'to go to the roots. At least twice a week the surfac' soil should be loosened between the plants. Tuber ous rooted plants do not require as much water as fibrous rooted ones.

Red Spider [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

Red Spider The favourable period of the year for tie appearance, of the rod spider is the hot dry time between now and Decem ber. During t\\\r period tho insect is very active, and if not checked will in crease at a rapid rate. Any weak plauts in the vicinity of a fence or in the shade of a house are the first, to suffer from the attacks. Soot, is one of the finest preventives if judiciously used. Sprinkle a little in a. fresh state along the beds and among the affected plants. This, when watered, throws off. ammonia, which is fatal to red spider. If the soot is watered every couple of days and renewed every other week there will be little or no trouble with the pest. Soot is obtainable from most of the factories that have furnace?.
