COUNCILLORS IN CONFLICT The Footscray council chamber was the scene of a spirited debate at the council meeting on Monday evening. Cr.

Some of the men had been employed for a great number of years, and there was nothing against them. He would like to know under whose instructions these men were to be dismissed and for what reason. The mayor, Cr. Farnsworth, re, plied that it was under his instruc tions the men were put off. The fi-. nances of the council, he said, would not allow the lien being kept on. I-IC had not piiked out any particular men, but some must go, Cr. Thorne said if that was the rolicy of the council the matter should have been discussed in council before any action was taken.

AGRICULTURAL CROP NUTRITION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924

AGRICULTURAL CROP NUTRITION. By "Heather Jock." When it crop is grown, its struc ture is built up by ingredients partly obtained from the soil and partly from the atmosphere. In so far as the ingredients derived from the atmosphere are con cerned, provided we include mois ture, the laws of nature have ipro. Sidled that ample supplies always exist under no-rmal atmospheric conditions. WVith regard to those derived from the soil this does: n1ot apply. However rich a soil may be, if continual cropping is carried on the time will come when one or more of the essential ingre dients of plant life will become nepleted below the requirements necessary to produce a profitable crop, and an artificial supl)ly of that or those ingredients to the soil becccnes imperative. Different classes of plants. like different classes of animals, differ in the quantities of the various classes of food ingredients they 1 equire to sustain them. A know ledge of this fact explains why a rotation of dilfferent ...

HOME GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924

HOME EARDEliNGE .By "Heather Jock" This season has b)een marked byv the extraordinary prevalence ot insect pests in the garden. The spring and early part of the sum imer was notorious for the strong invasion of thrip, which destroyecL roses, carnations and sweet peas, as well as ruined many of the fruit crops, and also considerably damaged some pea and bean crops. Just at present the red spider is xery bad indeed, as is also the small green leaf-eating caterpillar, which is devo.uriilg young seed lngs and cabbage and cauliflower plants as fast as they grow, unlec;s sprayed with arsenate of lead or tobacco solution. As a preven 'tive of a recurrence of this dur ing next season all old plants and leaves from the garden should be burned, and a fairly heavy dres ,sing of quick lime applied all over the. garden if possible. Then it fi ee use of nicotine or some other spray should be made in the late winter and coming spring. Roses, after the recent rains, are now making speedy developmen...

FIRST CROSSING OF MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924

FIRIST CROSSING OF MURRAY. The question 'of the date of the first crossing of the Murray River by the cxplorers I-Hume and iHovell is the subject of a statement by Mr. Keith Ross, the engineer in charge of the Hume weir construction works at Al hury. IVl r. 1Rcss says that it can be definitely stated that the river was first seen on Novem;ber 16, 1824, and was crossed on November 20, 1824, Besides the evidence of these dates: corresponding in the diaries of both Hume and H-lovell, they are con firmed by Bland's record of the ex plorers' travels. The date carved by Hovell on the tree now known as S"'lovell's Tree," at Albury, was No vember 17, and this:; led many people to believe that that was the day upon which the river was reached. Hovell himsel ', however, records the disco Ivery of the river in his journal entry for November 10; but the curious point is that his last entry for that day was:-'"In the solid wood of a healthy tree I cut my name, Hovell, November 17/21."
