Ladies' Column. News of Feminine Interest. The Blouse. (Continued from Last Issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 18 November 1915

Ladies' Column. News of Feminine Interest. The Blouse. (Hy Rosaland). (Continued from Last Issue.) L,ast week I noted some exclusive French molds that were being ex hibited, in one of our large shops. They were hand embroidered blouses, that looked too delicately beautiful to wear. Although MaJame C told me that their powers of durability are wonderful and that they lose none of their cobweb-like daintiness in the tub. The shirt blouse is still in good demand and wiil enjoy its old time popularity as in former seasons. Its appearance is considerably heightened by the smart Raglan shoulders that arc certainly con sidered the leading and correct note in blouse wear. The high military collar has various rivals in the form of Shakespeare and Artist turn-over collars, having a loose negligo effect at the throat. The variety of designs obtainable in piinted voiles is very pleasing, and such dainty, simple blouses may be created tiom this cheap and useful material that even the poorest of ...

Dieback in Citrus Trees. A Variety of Causes. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 18 November 1915

Dieback in Citrus Trees. A Variety of Causos. 1 How far have investigations been carried into the disease "dieback as affecting citrus trees ? The question came from the Middle Dural Branch of the Fruit growers' and Progress Association, and the leplv of the Biologist of the Department of Agriculture will interest numerous growers. "Dieback" in citrus trees is found to be due to a variety of c.r.ses. Sometimes it is caused by one or other ol several species of fungi ; sometimes it is not caused by any organism, but by adverse conditions of soil or climate. In the Dural district it is generally to the latter that its occurrence has to ho attributed, and the most common form of the disease is there known as "exanthema." This disease is characteris^Hirst by dying back of the main shoot ; laterals grow out and in turn die ; sub-laterals follow and the general effect is a bunching of the foliage and a dwarfing of the tree. A hard, gummy substance, exuded from the tree, is found upon the ...

The Hand-Fed Foal. And Its Food. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 18 November 1915

The Hand-Fed Foal. And Its Food. Sometimes a mare refuses to nurse her foal, and every means possible must be employed to over come the^avcrsion, for hand-raising is most troublesome, and often dis appointing. Sometimes hand-feed ing is unavoidable, however, and in such cases Dr A. S. Alexander ad vises that the foal should be fed with the milk of a cow that has recently calved. The milk must be raised to 100 deg. Falir. with hot water, and two teispoonfuls of sugar added for each pint of milk. The milk should be low in butter fat. Hi a new-burn foal give half a cuptul only an hour at tirst, night and day, trom a sterilised nursing bottle and rubber nipple. Gradually increase the amount of food and lengthen the intervals between meals. In Case of Scours. If there is the slightest sign of derangement of the digestive or gans, add an ounce ot lime water to each pint of milk, and if the foal begins to scour, give from one to three teaspoonfuls of castor oil in milk, according to age an...

Points in Passing. (Written Specially for the "Northern District Standard.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 25 November 1915

Points in Passing. (Written Specially for the "Northern District Standard") The estimated harvest for the four Kreat States of the Commonwealth makes very interesting -roading One hundred and fifty million bushels is no mean production considering the area covered. The actual figures last year for Victoria were, in round num bers, 32,000,000 bushels, while the present harvest is expected to produce at least 50,000,000 bushels. The total figures for the four States last year were 101,200,000 bushels, whereas the estimated totals for 1915-16 aggregate 15o,ooo,ooo bushels, or an increase of i nearly 50,000,000 bushels, and the profits to farmers are set down at over £14,000,000. Truly a record harvest, j * * * Persistent rumors have been rife for some time that I.ord Kitchener has re signed, and the "Globe," which was primarily responsible for the news, was hung up from publication, but the stricture has now been removed.

Autumn Fodder Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 25 November 1915

Autumn Fodder Crops. Farmers, especially those who carry stock, should now be busy preparing the land, and sowing fodder crops for autumn use. In Southern Victoria, where dairy farming is practised, the chief of these are maize and Japanese millet. Both are valuable fodders, the last named more particularly so, owing to its being a labor-siving crop. It can be pastured with a minium of waste, while the other has to be cut and fed to the animals. This means a larger wages sheet, and greater dependence having to bs placed on farm hands when oc caslon demands tneirciose services. In growing these crops thorough culture method^svre essential. It is only by careful preparation of the land, and keeping the ground well stirred and free from weeds, that the most successful results are attained. In order to be able to in tercultivate, the seed should be drilled in, leaving a space of three feet between the rows. This saves seed (ail important consideration in a dear market) and leads to the ...

Wheat Breeding. Natural Crossing. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 25 November 1915

Wheat Breeding. Natural Crosmlng. Previous articles 011 this subject have referred to wheat as a self fertilised crop, hut the plant breeder shows that cross-fertilisation is possible, and that it is known to take place. In India it has been found to occur in the Punjab, where the air is very dry and warm at flowering time, and several wheat breeders In Australia have discovered cases of it. Mr Farrell, of Walraer, Parkes, has been ex perimenting with wheat, and has produced what are undoubtedly natural crossbreds. He mixes to gether the seed of two varieties before planting, and each year searches the crop foi variations. Several sorts have been grown in the Department's tests plots, and have shown the characteristics of their parents in a greater or less degree. One named "Walmer" seems a promising variety, with the foliage and height of Stein weidel and a head of the Federation type, these two wheats being its alleged parents. A width of 16 inches between the breeding rows seems ...

The Man on the Land. Practical Irrigation Farming. Varieties of Stone Fruits. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 25 November 1915

Practical Irrigation Farming. Varieties of Stone Frtilta. Though settlers in the new irri gation areas cannot be recommen ded ta go in for raisin and currant drying, the drying as well as can ning of stone fruits (apricots, peaches, nectarines and prunes), and of pears also, may well become an important feature of the new fruit farms. Excepting apricots and peaches (a few hundred tons of which are dried yearly), the pro duction in Australia is very small, though there is a good local market, and a very fair English one, es pecially for apricots. These mar kets, indeed, might be greatly in creased and extended by a regular supply of fruit of high quality. Tho Apricot. Moorpark has until lately been regarded as far the best apricot for drying, both with regard to quality and to regular bearing of good crops ; it is later than many, ripen ing at Christmas time, and on that account generally escapes spring frosts, by which early varieties are liable to be seriously damaged. Moorpark has...

Ladies' Column. Health and Beauty. Filling In the Hollow Places. (Continued from Last Issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 25 November 1915

Ladies' Column. Health and Beauty. Filling In the Hollow Places. (By Rosaland). (Continued from Last Issue.) To fill in those distressing little hollows of which so many girls complain, and which the dress maker is generally called upon to round out by artificial means, there is nothing better than to rotate the shoulders with a quick, aggressive motion. Move them forward, then back, several times in succession. Such exercise has been known to remedy this fault within a month. One of the best exercises for de veloping a fine high chest, and a firm pretty bust, is to extend the arms horizontally, palms facing. Then try to touch the hands at the back. Aim to hold the arms as high as possible. I know that many women suffer from too prominent shoulder blades, not knowing how to remedy the defect. In time, if allowed to go on, it becomes a true deformity, A relaxed, lounging attitude is frequently responsible for this. At night they sleep with then backs bent into the shape of a bow knot...
