The New Post Office. TO 13K Ol'KNKIJ TO-MOKKOW. The public of Yarrain and district will bo pleased to learn that the new post office will be open for business to morrow morning. For several months the old shire hull has sufficed, with per- j haps more inconvenience to the staff than the public. Kesidents of Yarram have never been "accustomed to the facilities the. new building offers. For years it has been the custom to "rub shoulders," and " be-; pardons " for what might be considered rudeness of manner, when bustling in a box of a place to catch the morning mail. All this will be a recollection of the past. The department has provided a most up-to-dalo ollice, with ample room at the counter for the transaction of pub lic business. Yesterday the final touches were put to the staff's <ju.ii'ters, and this evening the ollicials will put in extra time shifting the ollice para phernalia. We would remind towns people that lists have been placed in the stores, hotels and banks...

It •was committed under the milky light of a full moon. The witnesses were able to identify the defendant on account of tho bril liance of tho moonlight.

WIT AND HUMOR. That Noise. One evening an amateur Nature student, note-oook in liand ,penetrated the wilds of a cOw pasture and paused to take advantage of the practical, al though crude, knowledge of a grey bearded countryman, who sat content edly on a log. ''There is a strange f bird-note this evening," she began, with sweet conde scension. *'I wonder—perhaps you can tell me what bird it is?" The old man removed Ifis pipe for an instant. "I heard a robin, mum," he admit ted. puffing awav at his pipe before the last word was out of his mouth. "Oh, no!" The student of ornithol ogy sir.ook her head, prettily impatient. "It is a new call, different from any thing I have vet come across. Can't you hear it—now"?" Once more the old man perfunctorily removed his pipe, and both ho and hfs questioner strained to listen. There was a bewilderment of woodland and farmyard sounds. ''There!" whispered the girl—"that full, shrill note! Can't you hear it? in that direction?" A light broke over the...

RULES FOR THINNING FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 14 January 1914

RULES FOR THINNING FRUIT. The question of thinning fruit is an ever-present one to the orchardist. One rule which is practised to some extent is for the grower to size up all the conditions and determine how many cases of fruil the tree should carry. It is a small matter then to determine tiow many fruits there should be left on the tree. The re sults at first are likely to be consid erably ofT the estimate, but this is very largely a matter of practice and variation of seasons. Another rule which might be taken in conjunction with the previous one, is to thin plums to about two, two and a-half, or three Inches, peaches four to eight, depending on the earii ness of the variety; pears ami ap ples, live to seven inches apart. In thinning pears and apples, it is only with early varieties that inure than one should be left on any fruit spur, and with these early varieties part of Ihe crop may be removed in one picking, and the balance later. With winter varieties of apples it is a good ...
