Discovery by Accident. y - About the discovery of oil in Pa pua an interesting story went, the rounds of tho Press a year or two ago. A British traveller noticed a taste of what he thought wiu\ kerosene oil in his tea, and rebuked his native boy for carelessness. The boy protested that lie had allowed no oil to get near the kettle in which tho water was boiled, and, on investigating the source from which tho water was obtained, his master found a film of crude oil floating on the top, which gave the kerosene, taste to the tea. On his return the traveller told the circum stances, and in consequence the dis trict was explored, with the result that evidences of petroleum were found. Karly last year a young foreigner Mr. Felix Grebin, was sent to Pa pua by a London syndicate, and he took with him a portable machine for the purpose of drilling for oil. )lo put down two wells, and in the first of these petroleum was found at a depth of 228ft. A second well gave signs of petroleum at a dep...

An Interesting Animal. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 January 1914

An Interesting Animal. It is calculated thai, one kangaroo eats as much grass and consumes ><is much food generally as do live sheep, and consequently lie is look ed upon as an enemy in Queens land, to. be hunted with the one idea of exterminating him alto gether. I In roaming the woods there one is almost sure to foil in with more j or leas of these animals. They are | usually found . sitting "upright in i circles of a dozen or more, as grave : us though engaged in holding a for i nial council. i Their short fore-paws hong limp i before them, while their restless i heads and delicate ears turn i hither and-.'thither in watchful enre against surprise. Whentheyare young they are as playful as kittens. Even when run ning away .from pursuit-a process performed by enormous leaps, often covering ia rod at, each--flying jump |-there is acertain-airy grace and harmony of movement attending their motions. ?

THE FARM. SUB-SOILING WITH EXPLOSIVES. SOME PRACTICAL HINTS ON THEIR USE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 January 1914

SUB-SOII,ING WITH EXPLOSIVES'. SOME PRACTICAL HINTS ON THEIR USE. It is well to realise that laud is bought or leased according to its surface measurement, and if wc can succeed irt' milking the undcr-soils contribute a share towards the pro duction of better crops, we are add ing to the producing area of our farrns in the most economical way possible. Land is getting very dear on the surface, and to get the best possible returns per acrc we must, on all our stiffer soils or those; un derlaid by "hard-pan," break up th> sub-soils to allow the roots of the plants a full range for root growth. Farming by dynamite has caught nn in the United States, and is spread in? throughout Canada and Mexico like a prairie fire. It seems a strange way of making the ground brin^ forth its produce in plenty, but there is no getting away from the fact that it acts. Doubtless the man who tried the trick first and met with success was quite in the dark as to why it siic I ceeded. It is a moot point w...

6,000 Miles of Scallops to make Sea Food Cheap. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 January 1914

6,000 Miles of Scallops to make Sea Food Cheap. f In these days, when the cost of liv ing is so high, 110 little, importance attaches to the discovery of an en tirely new source of food supply almost as one might say, at our very doors. It is just a matter of scallops. But these shellfish are mighty good to eat-and just think, if you please, | of a vast and continuous bed of] them 200 miles long and averaging thirty miles in width. Such beds have b^en found not far off the At lantic coast on our side and over sea. One exploring vessel, the Grampus, came across one bed-a mollus<-an deposit -undreamed of- I while hauling a deep-sea . net along ! the bottom just to see what there might be to catch. A quantity - of scallops was brought to the sur-i face. This excited immediate In- i tprest, and the net-a kind of dredge on runners--was lowered again and again, fetching up on each occasion from one to three bushels of the bivalves. The bed seems to con tain more scallops than, ...

CROP ROTATION OF PERMANENT BENEFIT. R. C. Dcmeghue, Prof, of Agronomy, North Dakota Agricultural College. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 January 1914

CROP ROTATION OF PERMANENT | BENEFIT. | K. C. Dcmeghue, Prof, of Agronomy, North Dakota Agricultural Oollosxo. While all the causes of low yields of the small grains cannot bo remov ed, practically all that are of imme diate importance can be controlled in large measure by a well planned system of crop rotation. When crops are grown in rotation and proper tillage methods are followed, they will sutler less from dry weather than when they are grown continuously. Crop rotation is usually of more im portance than the methods of tillage used in this respect, although both are important. In most rotations more roughage is produced than can be disposed of hv the work stock on the farm. Hence, more animals must be kept and more manure produced to return to the laad to keep up the supply of organic matter. The organ ic matter in the soil may also be maintained by growing grasses and legumes, (clover, lucerne, peas'), in the rotation. "Inasmuch as not enough manure can be produced on a farm ...
