  • 5 Aug 1921, BEACONSFIELD TRAGEDY. Sheard’s Homestead Sold. UPPER BEACONSFIELD. Thursday. The sale took place to-day of the land and effects of the old man and wife, the late Mr and Mrs Sheard who were murdered in their cottage on June 13. There was spirited bidding for the farm area of 64 acres which was purchased by a buyer from Mordialloc for £18/10/ an acre. A condition of the sale was that the homestead should not be demolished until the inquest had been completed. The dairy cattle, comprising a bull, nine dairy cows, four heifers and a horse realised good prices, and satisfactory amounts were obtained for the various articles of household furniture and farm implements. The sale was conducted under instructions from the curator of the estates of deceased persons.27
  • 15 Aug 1921, BEACONSFIELD TRAGEDY. John King, who is charged with having murdered Frederick and Annie Sheard at Beaconsfield on July 12, made his seventh appearance at the City Court on Saturday morning.
    Sergeant T. J. Montague said that another remand would be necessary because the inquest had not been completed.
    King said that he had no objection, and Mr. T. O'Callaghan, J.P., remanded him to appear on August 20.28
  • 29 Aug 1921, BEACONSFIELD TRAGEDY. When John King appeared in the City Court on Saturday, charged with having murdered Frederick and Annie Sheard at Beaconsfield on June 12, Sergeant T J Montague asked permission to with draw the charges. He explained that the coroner (Dr Cole) had committed him for trial Mr T O'Callaghan, J P, gave the necessary permission.29
  • 14 Sep 1921, BEACONSFIELD MURDER. No Presentment Against King.
    John King who since June has been in prison awaiting trial on charges of having murdered Frederick and Annie Sheard at Beaconsfield on June 12, was discharged from the Melbourne Gaol yesterday.
    King, with Herbert Jenkins, was com mitted for trial by the coroner (Dr. Cole), but the Crown Law department advised the Criminal Investigation department yesterday that it had decided not to file a presentment against King, and he was released. Jenkins is on bail, but no announcement regarding his case was made yesterday.30
  • 25 Oct 1921, BEACONSFIELD MURDERS. Victims' English Relatives.
    Letters received by the Rev. James Wilson, of Beaconsfield Upper, from relatives in England of Mr. and Mrs. Sheard, victims of the Beaconsfield murders, show that they were greatly distressed when news of the murders reached them.
    "It was a terrible blow," says one, "to all the brothers and sisters to read the dreadful news, as reported in the 'Daily Mail' on August 12; but it was a great comfort to us to learn that you, who had known them for so many years should have been present to officiate at the funeral. Just before setting sail for Australia Mr. and Mrs. Sheard were staying with us at Retford, and left our home 42 years ago. A friend who was visiting Australia on business called to see them, and told us how delighted they were to hear all about their friends at home; We sincerely hope that the police will be able to trace the murderers;-and that they will be brought to justice."
    It was evident to all who knew the old people that they were well connected, and this is borne out by the fact that the writer of the letter to Mr. Wilson. (Mr. Swannack), head of the firm of E. Swannack and Sons, builders, cabinet-makers, &c., of Retford, England, is an ex-mayor of the town, and in his official capacity had the honour of entertaining His Majesty the King just before the war.31
  • 1 Aug 1923, MURDERED COUPLE'S ESTATE. WHICH DIED FIRST? Litigation Pending.
    An application to Mr. Justice Weigall in the Practice Court yesterday recalled the tragedy which occurred in June, 1921, when Frederick and Annie Sheard, an aged couple, were murdered in their cottage, at Beaconsfield. As both the victims died intestate, it is a matter of consequence, so far as the distribution of the estate is concerned, which of the victims died first. One of Frederick Sheard's sisters, Mrs Emma West, had been named as the defendant in an originating summons, but as she has since died it was considered advisable to ask the Court to substitute for her name in the summons the name of Mrs Martha Newman, the surviving sister of Frederick Sheard.
    Mr Kelly (instructed by Messrs Henderson and Ball) made the application on behalf of the curator of intestate estates. Mr. Martin (instructed by Mr. E. H Serle) for the representatives of Frederick Sheard, and Mr Richardson (instructed by Messrs Moule, Hamilton, and Kiddle) for the representatives of Annie Sheard appeared, and consented to the application.
    Mr. Justice Weigall, in the absence of affidavits, declined to grant the application.32

  • 29 Aug 1921, BEACONSFIELD TRAGEDY. When John King appeared in the City Court on Saturday, charged with having murdered Frederick and Annie Sheard at Beaconsfield on June 12, Sergeant T J Montague asked permission to with draw the charges. He explained that the coroner (Dr Cole) had committed him for trial Mr T O'Callaghan, J P, gave the necessary permission.23
  • 14 Sep 1921, BEACONSFIELD MURDER. No Presentment Against King.
    John King who since June has been in prison awaiting trial on charges of having murdered Frederick and Annie Sheard at Beaconsfield on June 12, was discharged from the Melbourne Gaol yesterday.
    King, with Herbert Jenkins, was com mitted for trial by the coroner (Dr. Cole), but the Crown Law department advised the Criminal Investigation department yesterday that it had decided not to file a presentment against King, and he was released. Jenkins is on bail, but no announcement regarding his case was made yesterday.24
  • 25 Oct 1921, BEACONSFIELD MURDERS. Victims' English Relatives.
    Letters received by the Rev. James Wilson, of Beaconsfield Upper, from relatives in England of Mr. and Mrs. Sheard, victims of the Beaconsfield murders, show that they were greatly distressed when news of the murders reached them.
    "It was a terrible blow," says one, "to all the brothers and sisters to read the dreadful news, as reported in the 'Daily Mail' on August 12; but it was a great comfort to us to learn that you, who had known them for so many years should have been present to officiate at the funeral. Just before setting sail for Australia Mr. and Mrs. Sheard were staying with us at Retford, and left our home 42 years ago. A friend who was visiting Australia on business called to see them, and told us how delighted they were to hear all about their friends at home; We sincerely hope that the police will be able to trace the murderers;-and that they will be brought to justice."
    It was evident to all who knew the old people that they were well connected, and this is borne out by the fact that the writer of the letter to Mr. Wilson. (Mr. Swannack), head of the firm of E. Swannack and Sons, builders, cabinet-makers, &c., of Retford, England, is an ex-mayor of the town, and in his official capacity had the honour of entertaining His Majesty the King just before the war.25
  • 1 Aug 1923, MURDERED COUPLE'S ESTATE. WHICH DIED FIRST? Litigation Pending.
    An application to Mr. Justice Weigall in the Practice Court yesterday recalled the tragedy which occurred in June, 1921, when Frederick and Annie Sheard, an aged couple, were murdered in their cottage, at Beaconsfield. As both the victims died intestate, it is a matter of consequence, so far as the distribution of the estate is concerned, which of the victims died first. One of Frederick Sheard's sisters, Mrs Emma West, had been named as the defendant in an originating summons, but as she has since died it was considered advisable to ask the Court to substitute for her name in the summons the name of Mrs Martha Newman, the surviving sister of Frederick Sheard.
    Mr Kelly (instructed by Messrs Henderson and Ball) made the application on behalf of the curator of intestate estates. Mr. Martin (instructed by Mr. E. H Serle) for the representatives of Frederick Sheard, and Mr Richardson (instructed by Messrs Moule, Hamilton, and Kiddle) for the representatives of Annie Sheard appeared, and consented to the application.
    Mr. Justice Weigall, in the absence of affidavits, declined to grant the application.26

Village Bell*Feb 1996The article reads: WHO WAS LENNE?
Hubert Lenne after whom Lenne Road was named, was born in Cologne, Germany. Migrating to Australia, he selected 75 acres of land at Benalla in 1868, but soon forfeited this selection. The following year he married Charlotte Downing and became a licensed victualler at 181 Clarendon Street Emerald Hill (South Melbourne). Whilst living there they had two children both boys.
On 7th February 1876, Lenne applied for a license to occupy 20 acres of land he had selected in Upper Beaconsfield. Lenne listed his occupation as licensed victualler of Emerald Hill. His request was granted.
The 20 acres he selected was bounded to the south by what was to become Lenne Road. Emerald Road (then called the Main Gembrook Road) was the eastern boundary, and Albers Road defined the northern side, an excellent choice for a hotel.
On 26th July 1881, Lenne applied to purchase the land, which had been surveyed and shown to be 19 acres 3 roods 39 perches. He stated in this application that he had commenced residing on the land on the 1st October 1878, and had built a four roomed weatherboard house.
He had also planted an orchard of three and a half acres, and three acres of crops, obviously a very energetic man. He was given a Grant and purchased his selection.
Lenne must also have planted a grove of pine trees, as The Vagabond (John James), a journalist writing in "The Argus" of 26/11/1885, describes "the pleasant Pinegrove Hotel, (sic) a great stopping place kept by a worthy German settler", and tells of visitors imbibing colonial beer. It was apparently as popular then as it is now.
The Vagabond was staying at Beaconsfield House later called the Beaconsfield Hotel in Salisbury Road, and he states that he could not find a bar there. Although not certain, it would appear that the Pine Grove was our first hotel and Lenne the first hotel keeper. Mrs Somner did later obtain a license for Beaconsfield House and changed the name.16

  • 28 Jan 1885, Publican's Licence: Lenne, H., Beaconsfield21
  • 28 Dec 1892, BOXING DAY AT LENNE'S. The annual Boxing Day picnic at Lenne's is always an enjoyable affair, and Monday last was no exception to the general rule. The present depression has a good deal to answer for, and its effects were evident at the gathering referred to, where the attendance was not nearly so large as we have seen it in former years, though by no means sparse. This picnic in former years always attracted a large contingent of Melbourne friends, but the times are changed—not for the better—and on Monday this festive place was only attended by a couple of hundred people, and the sports were of a very mild description. These who were present however, thoroughly enjoyed themselves, for whet was lacking in one way was made up by Host Lenne, who was kept busy all day looking after the comfort of his guests, while his good lady had prepared a sumptuous dinner, enough for half the country side. A good string band was provided, and there was dancing on green, swings, quoits, American bowling alley, jumping, running, etc, which kept the people animated during the afternoon, while after tea there was singing and dancing. Nor was the singing all German either, for we had "The Marsellaise," sung by a patriotic Frenchman; "John Barleycorn," by an antiquated Englishman; "Annie Laurie," by a jolly Scotchman, who afterwards danced a Scotch reel to "A Bonnie lassie," while a Salvation Army man gave some very good advice in his song "Don't." Of course the lager suffered considerably, and pro bably the host did more singing, dancing and drinking lager than any one else in the crowd. During the afternoon impromptu sports were held in their garden, the lawn being in excellent order. Worthington won the Hop, Step and Jump, clearing 30 feet, with W. Wilson 2nd, and H. Lenne 3rd; Cutting off the Rooster's Head was won by A. Moat; Putting the Stone was won by Hollingham (18ft), W. Wilson second. The snap race caused some amusement. A rope is stretched from two staked driven into the ground, and from this rope are suspended various articles of value from half-a-dozen clay pipes to a bottle of Usher's pure and undefiled. Competitors are given a large pair of shears, are blindfolded at the rope, led back 20 paces, turned round twice and then have to try and discover the rope and make a 'snap' with the shears, and whatever they succeed in cutting off is their property. Each competitor is only allowed one "snap," and must not be led or guided in any way by onlookers. Great fun was caused by the vain attempts of the competitors to reach the coveted whisky and wine bottles, and the lads Jack and Sam Mason eventually succeeded in gaining first and second prizes, and were, also successful in winning both the boys' races; young Sykes, off scratch, being placed both times. Altogether, the pic-nic was a happy, go-as-you-please affair, and the only regret was that there was not a larger attendance to enjoy the amusement instituted by Host Lenne, and the splendid dishes provided by his good wife. It is to be hoped that next year Mr. Lenne will take the matter in hand earlier, provide a good programme of sports and have an open-air promenade garden concert in the evening, when he is sure to be well patronised. Indeed he might be induced to try something of the kind on Easter Monday, which is an off day, and a great day with the German people; and no doubt a large number would come up from the city for the occasion, and a real good time could be enjoyed.22
  • 4 Jan 1893, A petition was received from a number of ratepavers in Upper Beaconsfield protesting against the futher expenditure of money on St Georges road, as proposed by the council.-Cr. Goff argued that the proposed work was necessary, and should be carried out. With regard to the work asked for on the main road from Short house's to Lennie's, it would not benefit Lennie, and was not as important as that on St. Ceorge's road.-The president said that the people had been misled with regard to the proposed deviation of St. George's road through the late Mrs. Lowe's [Lawes'?] property, as it was provided for in the loan and would have to be carried out.-Several letters from ratepayers were read, asking the council to proceed with the work, and Cr. Goff remarked that the writers of these letters represented about £20 per annum rates.-Cr. Gibb said the road was wanted, and those people who would benefit by it were fully entitled to it. The object of the opponents was to keep the traffic their way, no matter what inconvenience they caused others.-Cr. Goff : Yes, they are acting with a dog in the manager spirit. He (Cr. Goff) moved a that the engineer prepare plans and that the Beaconsfield members be empowered to accept tenders for the work that day fortnight ; also for work on road leading to Bittingham's.-Seconded by the president and carried.
    From John Beattie, protesting against proposed road through Mrs. Lowe's land, and asking for improvements to main road from Stony Creek.--Cr. Goff moved and the president seeonded that the Beaconsfield members and the engineer inspect main road to ascertain what work was really necessary.-Carried.23

  • 30 Apr 1921, FRUITGROWING ORCHARDING AT BEACONSFIELD.
    By PENANG.
    ORCHARDS IN THE HILLS.
    Apple trees have the reputation that they will thrive and yield remunerative returns in almost any kind of soil in which they may be planted. This somewhat common belief is not without reasons to justify its acceptance. Yet while the apple tree can be made to yield profitable returns in nearly every part of the State, numerous southern districts provide fruit of distinctive type. When grown in rich flat land the tendency of the tree is often towards great size and enormous cropping propensities; on land of a more clayey nature, and undulating, a harder and usually better keeping type of apple is grown, whilst the main characteristic of the granite country is the remarkably high coloured fruit that commands attention wherever exposed for sale. The Upper Beaconsfield country varies a good deal, for in parts it is not unlike the shaley formation often found about the Diamond Creek. In other parts areas of an easily worked clay formation are met with, but the greater part of the fruit area of the district is of a granitic, sandy nature, which overlies a mellow clay that is fairly retentive of moisture. At the western end of the district the greater number of orchards are set out in granite land, and this certainly is ideally suited to the cultivation of the apple, whilst most other fruits grow fairly well. The altitude of the district is also a factor that must contribute largely to the success of many deciduous kinds of fruit, for the longer period of dormancy allows the trees a greater resting period in which to build up the buds for the succeeding season's crops. If the district does possess disadvantages, the main objection is that of cartage to and from the railway, for six miles of uphill country means slow travelling, and a consequent increased expenditure in cartage and labour. The average orchardist, however, does not consider this disability, provided the orchard trees will yield fruit of high quality; and in sufficient quantities to make the undertaking remunerative. In the more exposed positions orchardists have suffered loss in this season's crops, owing to damage caused by hail, but despite this visitation the season has been by no means unsatisfactory.
    SATISFACTORY YIELDS OBTAINED.
    A moderately large-orchard, containing about ten acres of old trees, and a young plantation owned by Mr. H. Albers, is probably one of the oldest orchards established at the west end of the district. This grower, apart from the careful management of his trees, has devoted a good deal of attention to the grading and packing of his fruit for market. The extra care given to the preparation of the fruit for market has been well repaid by the higher prices obtained for the produce when forwarded to market. Although there are varieties such as the Jonathan, King David, Cox's Orange Pippin, Gravenstein, Rome Beauty, and other apple varieties growing in the orchard, the Jonathan and King David find more favour with the owner of the property. The yield this year has not been an exceptionally heavy one, but it has been thoroughly remunerative. Three trees of King David yielded 39 cases of fruit, this being the only feature of note in a fairly uniform yield of average dimensions. Nevertheless there is a block of well-grown Jonathan trees that has not finished growing that is quite capable of carrying an average yield of ten cases of fruit to the tree, and probably will do so in the ensuing season. Mr. Albers, however, is inclined to prefer the King David variety to that of the Jonathan, for the reason that he finds it hangs better, and in the granitic soil, develops so rich and dark a colour that it is in particular demand. Contrary to the usual order of harvesting, the Jonathan crop is completed before the King David variety is gathered.
    When this last-mentioned variety was introduced some ten or twelve years ago, one of the claims urged in its favour was that it was ready for market about a fortnight before Jonathans were ready for picking. The variety has certainly done better in this orchard than in others where it has been seen, but its early maturity is nowhere noticeable. One other important feature of this orchard is the development shown by different kinds of cherry trees. Here, as in neighbouring orchards, the trees have furnished up particularly well. No doubt the cooler winter tempera tures have had much to do with the growth of the trees compared with those grown nearer to Melbourne. With the gradual disappearance of cherry trees from the orchards about Doncaster, it would not be surprising if the cherry ultimately becomes one of the most profitable fruits to grow in portions of the Upper Beaconsfield district. Their success will, no doubt, be most noticeable when grown on the sandy
    granitic class of country.
    UP-TO-DATE GRADING.
    This season the whole of the apple crop harvested by Mr. Albers has been passed over a grading machine before being packed into cases. The grader, as seen in operation, and reported upon by those in charge of the packing, has been a complete success. The rack over which the fruit passes is of the expanding type, the opening over the bins from which the fruit is packed gradually widens out as the different bins are reached by the fruit. As the conveyor carrying the fruit reaches these points the apples or other produce drop a few inches on to a canvas table and roll down within reach of those engaged im packing. The machine separates the fruit into five grades, including rejects or fruit that is unduly small in size. During an ordinary working day approximately 400 cases of apples can be graded with the machine, though this output is in excess of the requirements of the average orchardist. One important factor in the economy of labour that is directly due to the use of the machine, is that, in place of 80 and 40 cases of fruit that used to be packed in a day when eye grading was carried ot, packers are now able to pack from 70 to 80 cases of fruit a day without extra exertion. This difference in output would of itself amount to a saving of about 5/ a day on each packer employed, but there is the additional advantage of having the fruit far more evenly graded than is the case when ordinary eye-grading is resorted to. When fruit is graded by the machine, the packer gives no attention to the fruit other than that of keeping a watchful eye over the surface of the apples for injury caused either by codlin moth or black spot. Injury from these causes has not been appreciable this season, for although the codlin has been far more prevalent than usual throughout the State, it was found possible to reduce the losses to a minimum by the careful application of three sprayings with arsenate of lead. An advantage possessed by the grading machine in use on this orchard is that, by changing the carrier, it can be adapted to the grading of plums and other fruits.
    IT PAYS TO WRAP.
    Although the packing shed is not a particularly large one, it is well equipped for the needs of the small orchardist. On one side of the room stands the grader, the bins of which may be opened by sliding up a panel, whilst on the other side are a number of bins, each marked with the size of fruit to be placed in them, and each is well lighted by glass windows from the outer wall. Between the machine and the extra packing bins is space sufficient for packers to work either direct from the grader or from the larger fruit receptacles. Thus, during a busy, period, the grader may be fully availed of, and as the bins are filled the fruit may be transferred to the other side of the room so as to provide ample produce for packers to work from either group of graded fruits. Convenient packing stands, designed by Mr. Albers, are also in use, a sketch of which will appear in these columns on a future occasion. The cost of wrapping-paper, like all other orchardists' requirements, has increased considerably of recent years; but, despite this, it is considered highly profitable to wrap each apple in paper before packing it in the case. Mrs. Albers, who is an expert packer, and supervises the grading and casing of large quantities of fruit that leaves for the market, expressed the opinion that it not only pays to wrap fruit for export markets, but also for the requirements of the local trade. Experience gained in this packing-shed suggested that apples wrapped for the local market commanded 1/ a case more than that for warded in an unwrapped condition. Obviously this advantage is contingent on the proper grading of none other than high quality fruit of good colour, for if wrapping-paper was used to cover fruit of inferior quality the attempt at deceit would speedily recoil upon the fortunes of the orchardist. Preference is given to the numerical system of packing, for, apart from the ease with which toe contents of a case may be ascertained, the wrapped fruit, when the case is opened, presents a far more attractive appearance than when any of the square packs are adopted.
    Furthermore, by packing fruit on the interstices of the lower row, in place of directly over one another, the fruit settles down better into position without any risk of bruising the fruit when the padded lid is used to give the case a preliminary shaking before nailing on the lid.
    CITRUS PLANTINGS.
    Throughout the district are numerous young orchards; ranging in age from those just coming into bearing down-to the yearling trees. There are also a number of newcomers to the district, one of whom is Mr. R. Finger, a member of that well known family of Doncaster orchardists. So impressed was he with the possibilities of the district that he disposed of his orchard at Balwyn to purchase a property known as Heathcote, comprising 116 acres of land, 15 acres of wkich is planted with fruit trees. A number of changes are contemplated, and some are being given effect to. An area has been set out with orange seedlings, and has since been budded with lemon buds. In view of Doncaster experience, this grower believes the orange stock will result in the growth of longer-lived trees than if either the lemon or sour orange stock (Seville orange) had been used. Although lemon trees are growing fairly well in this district, further evidence of the value of the orange stock will need to be forthcoming before it can be said that the stock is more suitable than the lemon or sour orange. With liberal top dressings of soil or stable manure good results will probably be obtained. A good deal of useful work has already been done on the orchard, for limbs of Jonathan trees have been cut back and Yates's have been grafted on to provide ample cross pollination, and some grafts of Yates and Democrat, or Tasma, have been inserted into limbs of old Filbasket trees. Both the black spot and the codlin moth have caused heavy losses this season, the fungoid disease doing more damage to the States man variety of apple than to any other. The trees were sprayed twice during the season with arsenate of lead at a strength of 4lb. to 80gal. of water, but without appreciably diminishing the numbers of the moth. Mr. Finger proposes next year to use an imported brand of poison for the spraying of his trees, believing that better results will be secured than have been obtained during the season just closing. Under new management this orchard should improve considerably, and the fact that the new owner is well satisfied with results already obtained indicates his impression of the fruitgrowing possibilities of the district.39
  • 12 Mar 1936, FLAMES RISE 60 FEET. Homes Were in Danger.
    UPPER BEACONSFIELD, Wednesday. -A roaring inferno of fire, in which flames readied a height of 60ft., confronted fire-fighters at a break between the properties of Mrs. I. S. Norbury and the Rev. T. Howard Smith at Upper Beaconsfield to-day.
    The whole Upper Beaconsfield ridge was ablaze, but, after an exhausting fight, 60 members of the Upper Beaconsfield bush fire brigade saved the properties which were in danger.
    Fanned by a northerly wind, the fire, which had been under control on Tuesday night, broke out afresh this morning, and within a few hours huge clouds of smoke reduced the range of visibility in some parts of the district to 10 yards.
    The properties which were in the greatest danger were those of Mrs. Norbury, Messrs. C. A. Berglund, E. Wintle, H. Albers, and Vickers. Messrs. Wintle and Vickers lost a considerable area of grass, but all the properties were safe late this afternoon.40
  • 16 May 1936, Several Fruits Grown in Beaconsfield Upper Orchard. AN ENTERPRISING GROWER
    By "TILLAGE"
    Variety of production is a sound policy in orcharding, as in most other enterprises on the land. No one realises this more than Mr H. Albers, of "Bell View," Beaconsfield Upper. While apple growing is his principal activity, the cultivation of cherries, citrus, peaches, apricots, passion fruit and grapes also receive attention.
    Some of these are grown only on a small scale, but the cherry trees compare favorably with any in the State.
    MR ALBERS has been in the dis trict for about 40 years, and his orchard is in two sections, one of which was planted by his father, the other by himself. There are about 20 acres under fruit, and the balance of the property (100 acres) is devoted to dairying. In its virgin state parts of the land carried messmate, and others grey box.
    The orchard is on rising land, consisting mostly of chocolate loam, to 60 feet deep, and interspersed with gravel. Where the fall is not sufficient to pro vide good natural drainage, agricultural pipes, have been put down, and no trouble is experienced from root rot or other drawbacks associated with an excess of water.
    On the 15 ½ acres devoted to apples are Jonathan, Granny Smith, Delicious, Rome Beauty, Rokewood and Yates varieties. Most apple growers are fully alive to the advantages of cross-fertili sation, but few take the precaution to insert grafts of two other varieties in their Jonathans, as has been done on this property.
    Both the Rokewood and Yates have been used for that purpose, and each is considered to have an equally strong influence upon the fruit setting of the Jonathan.
    The benefits of cross-fertilisation were demonstrated very conclusively in the orchard during a severe infestation of thrips several years ago. Jonathan trees carrying Rokewood grafts, and others close by, produced a good crop, while self-fertilised Jonathans were a failure.
    By the insertion of the double graft and the planting of pollenizers, there has not been a repetition of this trouble. Mr Albers asserts that the grower who hopes to have fruit in a thrips year from Jonathans not cross-fertilised is a super-optimist.
    This, too, he says, applies to other varieties but early-blossoming kinds such as Gravenstein are likely to escape. Jonathans of excellent quality are produced around Beaconsfield, and there is a preponderance of this apple in "Bell View," but the owner has a high regard also for Yates.
    Consistently good yields are its chief virtue. Although thinning out could not be performed during the past season owing to the pressure of other work, the fruit was of a good size, and an average yield of three cases was obtained from 400 trees. Other varieties, apart from Rome Beauty, also yielded well.
    A complete manure furnishes the best results in the district, and the 2:2:1 mix ture (two parts each of super and sul phate of ammonia and one of potash) is applied in spring at the rate of 3lb. to the tree. It is the practice to lime por tion of the orchard every year, about the end of May.
    The material sweetens the soil, and, it is considered, helps to impart color to the apples. The allowance is half a ton to the acre. For cherries almost double that quantity is applied. The lime is broadcast and remains on the surface until the first spring cultivation.
    Black spot usually is controlled with two Bordeaux sprays, one of 6-4-40, and the other at half that strength. Mr Albers shared the experience of most district orchardists last season in connection with the codlin moth, which was more troublesome than for many years.
    Spraying for this pest begins at the calyx stage, and is continued to the end of February. White oil takes the place of arsenate of lead for the two final sprays, to prevent an excess of arsenical residue, and avoid the necessity for wiping the fruit.
    This grower and others have doubts about the quality of arsenate of lead which has been supplied recently. The sight of grubs eating their way through the fruit a couple of days after the lead has been applied, he says, would make anyone question its efficiency. This happened in March.
    He assured me that it was not due to lack of pressure or carelessness in any other direction in the spraying. About 250 lb. to the square inch is employed, and so strong is the pressure that the hose often bursts.
    Mr Albers refers to the cherry crop as "the most payable proposition of the lot," although he has only a couple of acres under this fruit. His varieties are Early Purple Guigne, Burgsdorf Seedling, Early Lyons, Eagle's Seedling, Bed ford Prolific, and St. Margaret.
    That gives a picking season extending over two months, beginning with Early Purple Guigne and Burgsdorf Seedling in the first half of November, and fin ishing with St Margaret at the end of December.
    Some of the cherry trees were planted 25 years ago, and others are 12 years old. They are on Kentish stock. Mazzard Seedling stock produces a larger tree but takes longer to come into bearing, and does not produce so continuously as Kentish.
    For Brown Rot
    The trees leave nothing to be desired in growth and fruitfulness. Burgsdorf Seedling, Eagle's Seedling and Bedford Prolific are the heaviest yielders. Some variation is shown by St. Margaret, but the fruit usually brings good prices. Generally the most profitable varieties are the early and the late. The trees are inter-planted for cross-pollination.
    A complete manure is used for cherries but the proportion of potash is higher than in the case of the apples. The cherry requires less pruning than most fruit trees. For the first five years the object is to shape the tree and secure as many low-branched leaders as pos sible. After that only superfluous limbs are cut off.
    For brown rot the trees are sprayed with Bordeaux mixture in the early part of the season, and this is followed by applications of lime sulphur. Under wet conditions while the fruit is ripening, however, control is found very difficult. Last season the disease did not present itself and a fairly heavy crop was marketed.
    Starlings do not give the same trouble as in many other districts where cherries are grown. The birds are always present during harvesting; but the pickers frighten them off. Mr Albers asserts that cherry growing is more attractive in every respect than apple culture. The former crop, he points out, does not call for so much spraying or such care in the preparation of the fruit for market, although the actual picking is more laborious.
    The cherries are supplied to the Victoria Market in half-cases, and the principal essential, apart from supplying good-quality fruit, is to have the cher ries firmly packed. Consignments leave Beaconsfield by train at 5 p.m., and are sold before daylight the next morning.
    I was agreeably surprised at the vigor and heavy producing qualities of the lemons which figure prominently among the two acres of citrus in the orchard. They are of the Lisbon thornless variety, and were raised on sweet orange stock.
    A special advantage offered by the trees is that the roots are well down below the surface, which allows of fairly liberal and deep cultivation with out injuring them. The use of the im plements is regarded as more necessary for lemons than for other fruits.
    The trees are 12 years old, and carry a crop throughout the greater part of the year. This is attributed largely to the use of stable manure. If sufficient is not available for treating the whole of the grove annually, it is given a heavy application at least every second year.
    In addition sulphate of ammonia is applied in the spring at the rate of 3lb. a tree. One white oil spray a year is found sufficient to deal with black scale. Pruning of lemon trees is limited to the removal of any branches near the ground, or wafer shoots in the centre.
    The 25 apricot trees on "Bell View" comprise the Moorpark and Campbellfield Seedling varieties, both of which give good results. Among the peaches Anzac, Wiggins and High's Early Canada are represented. Anzac, which is an early peach, also is the most consist ent bearer. High's Early Canada has a drawback in that the buds are in clined to drop.
    The area under passion fruit is only small, but the vines do very well, and fruit is available for market at the end of January. Some grape vines, trained up against the wall of an outbuilding, bear heavily. They are of the Black Prince variety, and the bunches are very large.
    Mr Albers has a packing shed, and this is fitted with a grader which takes apples of five sizes, ranging from 2¼ to three inches. It is driven by an oil engine.
    Although dairying is secondary to orcharding, 100 acres are available for the cattle, and the greater part of this area has been sown down with cocks foot and clovers. It is found that Eng lish rye grass does not hold out long on this country, but cocksfoot, once established, provides a lot of feed in con-junction with clovers.
    Some of the land has been top-dressed with highly beneficial results. Up to 16 cows are milked, and cream is supplied to a Melbourne firm.
