THE GARDEN (By an Expert, for "The Biz" Newspaper). [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 26 January 1929

THE GARDEN (By an Expert, for "The Biz" News paper) , There's one thing I never can quite understand about some garden ers, and that is why they seem to al ways grow the same kinds of flower ing plants every year, without ever trying out some of the less common gems which are literally clamoring to be taken notice of, and which have more to recommend them than many of the varieties which have become popular. I get a lot of pleasure trying out some kind of flower which is new to lne. Of course I always make sure of their general habits, and the height they grow, so as to know where to plant them. No one desires to plant seedlings in the front of beds which should occupy the back; ground; neither do we - want to find out, when it's too late, that some seedlings we planted in the middle portion of our beds would have been more suited to form borders, on ac count of their dwarf stature. But catalogues always furnish not only the size and habits of plants but also the colors one may expe...

WAS THE SAND BAD? [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 26 January 1929

WAS THE SAND BAD ? Thus the overseer at Holroyd Council meeting: "In the latter part of December last, the footpath on the west side of Chertsoy-street, between St. John and St. Ann streets were paved with concrete. The sur face of the pBving is now leaving the main body of the concrete and crumbling to powder. There is not the slightest strength in the mortar, and 1 suspect the sand of containing some deliterious substance, having had experience with other sands that although a 2 to 1 mortar was made, it could be broken to powder quite easily, and a short exposure to the weather had the same effect. I am having a quantity of the topping re moved and kept for furthmer examin ation." Aid. Maunder, of Holroyd Council, wanted to know on Tuesday night, ?why Dunmore-street, upon which a large sum of money was spent about 18 months ago, should be in such a disgraceful state of repair. The Mayor promised a report.
