FLORENCE. HOW IT LOOKS TO AN OUTSIDlilt. The first glimpse ot Florence, al most entirely surrounded by bltio Mils, is attractive). Florence is a mixture o( fine mod ern buildings, broad streets and plazzc and narrow, winding streets o! gloomy old palaces or apartments with tiny dark fhops beneath, and old squares whose every stone could tell of memorable events. . In (ha modern section of (lie city one lrars English so much spoken (hat one could almost fancy onescll in an English or American city, were it not for the names or sign'; and street corners. There arc Fii.' lish churches, libraries, typical Fn^ li-sh tea-rooms, and then, turn'ng a corner, one comes upon some void able church, or catches a glimpse ol the beautiful Palazzo Vocciiio, with its graceful tower and peculiar ar chitecture, which stands out promi nently in almost any view of the city from the hills about Florence. Only a few lj'jndred feet away from the Piazzo Vittorlo Emaiviele, in the heart of the'shopping distr...

BEET GROWING BUNGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 17 March 1914
BEET GROWING BUNGLE. Age ThB uerinus po3itioo in which ihe Boisdale settlers Bad themselves today cannot be wholly ascribed to the obligation to pab 39 small a portion of their holding under beet) sugar as they may. The balance of their holdings returns practically very little, and never will antil high acre yields are rendered possible by means of irriga tion. In other words, there can be no prospect of success for closar settle meut in the rich and high-priced alluvial lands of North Gippaland, unless the Ecttler is guaranteed suffi cient) moisture to mature his^ summer crops in any and every year. It is disquietiug to rcflect that these troths which should have been known to leading officers of the -Department (.f Agriculture, were not fully repre* sented to the authorities at tjjp time when the re-opening of the Maffru factory was under consideration. Had this been done and the advice noted upon, no settler would have been encouraged to starb operations at Boisdale until essenti...
OUT OF EMPTY AIR. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 17 March 1914
OUT OF EMPTY AIR. Mysterious showers of animals and oilier organisms from tlio empty air liavu occurred at various times, through all tlie ages. The latest is a shower of small lish which occurred in Quir indi, M.S.AY., on the ,13th ^of lust month, specimens collected for investi gation proved to be freshwater "hardy head," or species of small lisli common to the Murray and lSogan watersheds.

PRESBYTERIAN HARVEST FESTIVALS. SWIFT'S cniiEK, Despite the dry weather, the display at tho ball on Sunday, Boh inst., was good to look upon.

A POTTERY FAIR. At tho present time, Germany is lav ahead of England in llio matter of ad vertising pottery manufactures.

Gorman exports of pottery to the Uni ted States aro. at the present time doublo thoso from Great Britain. But signs are not lacking that English manufacturers are waking up to their behind-hand methods, and the North Staffordshire potteries have so far real ised the value of such exhibitions as the Leipzig Fair, as to inaugurate an annual fair of British pottery ajjd glass manufactures, tho first to bo held at Stoke, next month. The Stafford shire manufacturers maintain that since the days of Wedgwood, their pot tery has been as good as, if not better than, any in the world. They main tain that ...

BEEF AND BUTTERFAT. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 17 March 1914
BEEF AND BUTTERFAT. i'robably nothing, .says a well-kumvn agricultural writer, would induce the grazier of fattening cuttle tu transler liis attention to dairying, hut tho pro ductive capacity oi a well-selected cow , is much greaLer than that of a weil | bred steer, and moro^ean be made oif ; grass by combining tho two. The aver age dairy cow produces about oUU gal lons of milk annually, yielding 12J per cent, or G25lb oi fat, sugar, casein, and ash, practically ail of which is di gestible. It would be a good steer tliut would increaso oOOlb in iivo weight in the course of a grass season, and only about GO per cent, or 3001 b. ol that amount would be beef, tho value of which uk a -food has further to be Uisoouuted by its bono content. Tho value of'oOO gallons of milk at Gd per gallon comes to £l!2/I0/, while oUUlb. of live weight in a steer at 30/ would be £7/10/. It would tulco as much gra>s to, produce one result as the other.

SULPHUR AS A FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 17 March 1914
SULPHUR AS A FERTILISER. Experiments carried out both in Ger many and in Franco confirm recent re ports as to the fertilising action of ilow ers of sulphur upou. .tho soil. in the German 'trials a dressing of 90 lb per acre, applied in February, a short tune before tho crops were sown, had a beneficial effect upon burloy and rye. 'Hie treated portions of the .crops were stronger, and had a brighter green co lor than the untreated; but no account of tho difference in yield is given. The French experiments wore intended to throw light upon the cause of the fer tilising action of sulphur. Tho cause has been said to bo tho destruction of injurious bacteria in the soil, and the conclusion of the investigators agrees that this is partly tho case. But it is ocmcluded also that 'tho chemical action of tho sulphur has some effect. Sul phuric acid is gradually formed, and this not only auplies sulphur to the plants, but also helps to dissolve mineral ele ments in tho soil.
