A DEMONSTRATION OF FRUIT
SPRAYING BY MOTOR SPRAY
A demonstration with the Doncaster Motor Spray Pump was given by Mr. H. C. Richards (sole agent for this State) on Thursday at Mr. Pike's apricot orchard, Hectorville. The tank being filled with about 70 gallons of bluestone mixture, a start was made at 2 p.m.,'taking two rows of l8 year old trees at a time. The whole of these two rows were finished m 40 minutes (each row contained 36 trees), and onlyi a small portion of the mixture being left, showing that reloading need only be done at the end of these rowB. Tree after tree was examined, and in no case could any unsprayed portion be detected, the spray being so fine and penetrating. Not one single mechanical hitch occurred dur- ing the afternoon, the engine working smoothly throughout the day. The demon- stration was witnessed by Mr. George Quinn, Messrs. T. Robson, sen., H. and W. Robsmn, C. Fisher, Rowell, Hart, and a number of others. mx
AUSTRALIAN FILMS. '
The Globe Import Company, of Arcade, Adelaide, have been fortunate in securing the sole South Australian and Broken Hill Agency for the Australian Photo Play Company, Limited, of Sydney, whose Aus- tralian Films have caused a profound sen- sation in other parts of the Common- wealth and New Zealand, accounted for, no doubt, by the fact that they are purely of an Australian nature, acted _y Austra- lian artists, and being equal in quality and photography to the best imported English, American, and Continental productions. Amongst the Litest releases arc "Ben Hall and lins Gang," "AsMgned Servant," "Lady
Outlaw," "Keane, of Kalgoorlie," and j
"Moora-Necya" (in aboriginal "The Mes- sage of the Spear".) The last-named play is a highly exciting drama. The scenes are thoroughly Australian, and typical ot
the bush and backblock township life of. Queensland, where the incidents of the drama were carried out. A strangely fan- tastic effect was obtained by the introduc- tion of a tribe of genuine Australian albori ginals, whose giottsque war-painted bodies added to their weird corroborées. This is the first film introducing the Australian aboriginals in their native haunts, and war dances. The Globe has also been ap- pointed agents for the British Beard, the Wrench, and the American Standard Cine- matographs, and intends to stock complete outfits, parts, and accessories. Seeing that three members of the firm have been asso- ciated with pictures shows for many years now, customers would have the advantage of their experience, which should prove in- valuable, m
