RUGBY LEAGUE Proposal For Revival PORT STEPHENS RAYMOND TERRACE, Saturday. There is talk that this season an effort will be made to re-, vive the Port Stephens District Football League, which func- ? tioned with such success eight or nine years ago.

Raymond Terrace, Clarence Town, Karuali, Tea Gar dens, Nelson's Bay, Anna Bay, Hin ton, and Miller's Forest.

TWO SHARKS Hooked in River [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939
TWO SHARKS Hooked in River During the week, fishermen who have been spending the holidays on the banks of the Williams River, have had more than the ordinary ex citement that comes their way. The long period of dry weather has made the river brackish a long way above its mouth, with the re sult that sharks are appearing in the stream. Last night a party of Maitlanders hooked a blue pointer shark at Glen Oak and a few days earlier another was caught in the same locality. They were about three feet long but it is possible that larger sharks may also be in the vicinity. Glen Oak is about 40 miles from the mouth of the river.

For The Man On The Land Agriculture and Pastoral Notes [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939
For Tlie Man On Tlie Land Agriculture and Pastoral Notes It is surprising that growers do not appreciate more the. value of an efficient rotation system, observes a departmental instructor in vegetable production. The advantages to be gained bv arranging the crops so that they, follow one another in their proper sequence are many, . and should be too well known to need enumeration, but a fact which is often lost sight of is the important part rotation plays in controlling insect pests and pJant diseases. Such diseases as the root rot, black I rot and club root of crucifers and | root knot (eelworm), to mention a few that are carried over in the soil, may be partly or wholly controlled by adopting suitable rotations. The control of many of our insects largely depends also on proper crop arrangement as well as clean culti vation. The tomato mite attacking an early crop ot tomatoes, for exam ple, may be carried over to a late crop planted in tho same land. The absolute control of cabba...
