Caterpillars in Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 3 June 1914
Caterpillars in Wheat. Reports from Tooyal and oth'er localities north of Wagga, state that very serious damage is being done among the early wheat crops by caterpillars. In some parts they have appeared in ^countless millions, and they have eaten everything green which they have been able to reach. One farmer had 4C0 acrcs of crop completely eaten, and was obliged to re-sow the whole of the area. When eaten off by the caterpillar, the wheat plant will not grow again, so that it is necessary, where they have obtained the mastery, to put in fresh seed. Usually caterpillars do not make their appearance in eastern Riverina till the spring. This year they have been attacking grapevines and other crops right through the autumn, and at present some parts of the country are quite overrun by the pest. In some instances in the Ganmain district both wheat and oat crops have been demolished. The caterpillar is said to be identical with what is known as theBogong species. Some years ago one or ...

Lawrence during a fog at 2.30 on Friday morning, and rippsd off her plates from amid ships to stern. Almost immediately the great liner heeled over, ana the water rushing into the ettgine-room caused a terrific explosion, which killed hundreds dn board and drove the vessel to the bottom within 10 minutes. of the coU, lisio'n. ■ In all, 1032 lives were lost out of a total of 1387.

SLEEP AND SOME GREAT MEN. lb was Cobden's boast that ho could sloop at will. Said ho: "If I had not had tlio faculty of sleeping liko a dead fish in five minutes after tlio most ox oiting mental effort, and with tho cer tainty of having oblivion for six con secutive hours, 1 should not liavo been alive now." Gladstone's sovereign rules were deliberate mastication of his food and "always eight hours' sleep." So important was this hitter consideration that ho would never compose anything after six o'clock at night, as to do so would affect his sleep.
