TURF TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 11 December 1914
TURF TOPICS (By "Flemington.") Ballarat as a racing centre seems to have lost a good deal of its former glory. It is one of the places to suffei from City competition in a Turf sense. True, Ballarat still maintains two race. courses, but the sport never reaches a high class, and, the clubs would prob ably find it a difficult matter to pull along without metropolitan support. The Ballarat T.C. ran a two days' meeting last week. It proved a suc cess, judged by the standard of recent years, but scarcely went near the high water mark of the good old days, when the crack gallopers of the day met to do battle at Dowling Forest. A fair honest performer in Atora won the Ballarat Cup this year. His victory under top weight clearly indi cated that the held was a weak one. Atora, though a useful old slave, is not to be compared with some former winners of the race. Atora is on the dam's side; a representative of the Nellie family. Members of this tribe do not, as a rule, last so well, though n...

Warburton Mutual Improvement aqd Qbating Society Theo' meeting of thie above society was heid on the 2nd inst. After the business of the evening had been disposed of, \Mr Nutley gave his deferred address on the Soutlh and East Coasts of England, Coumnenc. ing with "Start Point" in Devon shire, lie explained to the audience, showing the various high lands and the low places as he camne to them on thei map he had prepared. Es pecial mention was made of many of the newer ports which had been fortified and made into naval har bours since he left England. By a sectional map of Dover, hlie was enabled to hallow how a naval har bour 'was made when the natural facilities would not permit of tmhe same. In this case many millions of money had been expended in the making of breakwaters, large enough to enclose nearly a square mile of water. A portion of the cast coast of Scotland swas also taken and spoken upon as far as Aberdeen, a stay being made at the Firth of Fortd to explain its formatio...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 11 December 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rustic, is.") It's a pity that the decision to drop the regulation fixing the price of wheat was not arrived at earlier. It would have made a difference in the total of Victoria's yield. Crops that have been cut for hay or opened to stock would have been harvested if there had been the prospect of 6/6 or 7/- a bushel. And they would have given good re. turns to the farmers as well as helping the State out of the difficulty a big shortage in the quantity needed en tails. The latest development of the erratic course eteered in connection with this matte: has rougn'c disaster to many of the wheat operators. Take one instance -an old firm, regarded as being solid in the nest sense of the term, and .rated at about the £20,000 mark.. The soaring of wheat as the resoult of the removal of the restriction as to price means insolvency for them, utter and complete. Operators of this class con tracted before the war to deliver large parcels of grain at prices ranging from...
SLATEY CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 11 December 1914
SLATEY CREEK. (From Our Own Correspondent,) The fMails.-There is some talk of trying to get an alteration in the time the mail leaves ourm local P.O. daily. At present letters have to be posted before 9 a.m., as the bag is sent to Yarra Junction by the 10 h,m. train. The mail does not leave the Junction for Mlel ()ourne until 0.30 p.m., and it would be far more convenient for local people if the bag was sent by the 2 p.m. local train. This is a mat ter, I tihink, that our Progress As socia.tion should take in hand. End of the Barn Dances.-A very successful dance was held at MIr 'Tharratts barn on Friday night last. As the barn is to be filled with crop during the coming week, this will, of course, put a stop to the dances there; therefore the local residents thought it as well to have p final evening before this was done, In the absence of a local hall, the bamrn has been a real convenience. There was a large number of visi tors from Yarra. Junction and else where. Some capital song...
TOO RICH SOILS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 11 December 1914
TOO RICH SOILS. In general, maanures"may be said to be adapted to the requirements of the soil when they can supply any ingredient of which there is a dclicienecy. Bat an undue excess of any of the constituents may be nearly as bad as a defieicncy. When farmers speak of a soil as being "too rich" they generally mean that it contains too much nitrogen. Under these conditions corn crops tend to run more to straw than to grain, and to lie down-grass becomes rank and coarse, and root crops ripen before they are fully developed. ''h- e effets can be at least partially nitigated by increas ing the proportion, of the other con stituents, especially phophlates and potash, even though the soil may no: he-judged by ordinaxy standards-de ficient in these ingredients. The re quirements of the soil must therefore be gauged not wholly by the absolute quantities of the constituents, but to some eitont also by the relative quain titles.

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 11 December 1914
FOR WOMEN By "Ambroeine."') Crepes and crcpons are among the favourites of the summer season. Others are cotton duvetyn, damask, casement cloth, tussore, linen, batiste, cotton eponge, and crash. The smart selec-. tions include pompadour crepes with tiny flowers in shower form, striped and figured crepes. Tpe many designs afford ample opportunity for the use of two materials, and such are favored. Puffings, draperies, and flounces are all prettily expressed in this most charm ing fabric, with silk crepe in vivid tone to go with flowers, spots, or stripes. Embroidered crepe is admir able for cuffs, cbllars, and girdles in this relation. The colourings are both varied and exquisite; and the delicate, ones are delightful. The washing gown is a dream with its pretty flounces and dainty draperies, and all are greatly improved with the bayadere sash that pulls down on the hips, by the long girdle bow hanging at sides, or by the Geisha sash that ties in a large high bow at back.

THE EFFECTS OF SULPHUR ON PLANT GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 18 December 1914
THE EFFECTS OF SULPHUR ON PLANT GROWTH. - Sulphur is coninonly. used to pro tect vines fromn odun, and it has long been zioticed that, when thus used, it has a stimulisting effect on tile growth of thle. vicnes. 'the experimoent of several Fi'rnch investigators have no\\w, according to th?l "Scientific American" made clear how this effect is brought about. Sulphur does not act directly as a plant food, but breaks downi com plex nitrogenous substances in the soil to the ammonnia form. Hence its ac tion is dependent upon the presence and amount of organic in the soil. T'hus Vernmorel and Dantony treated wheat and beans, grown in pots, with sulpihur. When nitrogen was also ap plied in the form of nitrates, the ad dition of sulphur led to no increase in yield, but when the same quantity or nitrogen was applied in an organic form (dried blood), an increase of 80 per cent. was noted for wheat, and (?0 per cent. for beans 'IThe most recent and conclusive experiments on the sub ject are tho...
