ECONOMICAL CULTURE OF FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

ECONOMICAL CUliTUBE OF FRUIT TREES. . It is a question .of importance as to the precise form of fruit tree most profitable to grow, waetherstandards, half standards, ?or dwarfs. For small gardens, the dwarf- , bust form of apples and -pears has long superseded tkeetahdardBformerly planted. If dwarf trees are.preferable on the . score t-i economy to standards on a, small scale, they must be equally so on -a large one, and we therefore must look at the ques tion as to its bearing on fruit culture in & general point of view. For extensive orchards, tall standard trees will «tili he planted, as such orchards are gener ally, when the trees get established, laid down with grass, and require but little care afterwards. But -where the finest faaiits are required, there will be little difficulty in proving that the same /quantity of fruit can be obtained on the same, space of ground that is required to ; produce the same t|ttantity in orchards. And. even with the market-gardeners' or...

Sporting. AUSTRALIAN HORSES FOR THE INDIAN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

Sprtmg, AUSTRALIA!* HOBSES FOR THE INDIAN MARKET. ???/'? There is a great deal of nonsense -written and talked respecting the deterioration of our horse stock;' We are being continually' reminded that a remunerative jnarket : exists; in India for any number of horses we can produce,, provided the sample is approved of ; but that the Australian iioiiiB una su u«geueraiKu rrom.wnat ne was 20 years ago, that the good name; 'lie once possessed is gone for ever, and that our horses -are in no demand. , If this be true, it is really a serious matter -for consideration. We have, however, very grave doubts on the subject, and are in clined to think that the question is not one of supply and demand, but whether it will pay or not for us to send really first-class stock to India. Our belief is that it will not pay, but that at a price we can supply ^an article equal, if .not superior, to any that can foe procured elsewhere, and that if a, demand at remu nerative prices, could be relied on, we...
