BARN-DOOR LATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 31 March 1906

BARN-DOOR LATCH. A latch for barn doors is shoivn in the accompanying illustration. The details ^ of construction are given'plainly In the picture. The piece (a) works vertically behind an iron strip and catches behind -a-'cleat Hastened to the timber above the door. It should be long enough to be reached Irora the floor. It is raanlpu lated by the lever (b). This should be heavy enough to overbalance the weight or the piece marked (a). -There is a pinIn the door below the'Iever to keep the latter' from falling below. • The advantage of this latch: over the one-piece swinging lever is that It never swings " out wlibre it would be in the way. It is "self-iuljustable in 'case the door sags. The piece can be adjusted to suit the " slzo of tho door. It is easily constructed and cheap, there being no materials used other than those found on every farm.

Pickling Seed Grain. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 31 March 1906

'• Pickling Seed Grain. There aro many farmers who never picklo; their seed prior to sowing, oven although smiit'inny be traceable in Uie grain. To those who know of the damage wrought ljy this fungus, iii-their own interest tliey should1 talca precaution, especially when the cure is within tho reach, of oil. The question is often asked: "Will smut spread from field to field while the crop is growing, as rust does?" The uimwer to this question is that stinking smut will not spread, from field to field while the crop is grow■ .'in'S, or. from plant to plant to any appreciable extent. Any trace of smut in the, seed grain will produce an enormously greater amount in the • crop. It lakes but a single spore to infect, and destroy the grain in the heads of a whole stool of six or ten stalks,"and in a single smutted kernel there are severai million spores. Smut is particularly well adapted to preservation in an active state in Jnaniiro... The spores, most likely, may. bo; passed' with sm'u...

FARM AND FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 31 March 1906

FARM AND FIELD. Farm Yard Manure. Writing 011 the value of farmyard manure, Jlr Shoi'tt, chemist to the .Experimental Farms, Canada, makos the following remarks in a recent bul letin:— .. "Humus is ■ the constituent abovo. all others which mellows tlie" soil and makes, it .retentive of moisture and warmth. It improves both clay and sanils in this respect. It will be ob vious,- therefore, that in addition, to the fact that it is our chief source of nitrogen, it is a constituent which wo cannot replace by any other. The commercial fertilisers will, not take the place of himius in mellowing . the physical-condition of our soil. This is onfe reason: why wo find in certain quarters such; a. strong prejudice against: commercial* fertilisers,, and. such a strong and favorable dmpres sioq regarding farmyard manure. The amount of plant food—that is to say, the nitrogen arid, phosphoric acid and potash which ore "combined in fnrmyard manure—is not large com pared with the amounts contained1 i...

THE. CITY MUTUAL LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIETY. An Organisation with a Remarkably Successful History. This Year's Report Discloses Unexampled Progress. The principle of life assurance goes far towards a real solution ofthat apparently inscrutable. problem, boundup - with our present-day,civilisation,\yhich, as every thought-' ful man or woman, knows, is how ',to; secure a more equitable distribution of the realised wealth of the world' among those who make-it—that is,' among the masses of the community.' This mighty problem, • which has eluded the grasp of the sociologist; and, indeed, of every' earnest thinker, has- well; been denominated the modern '' riddle of the Sphinx." Inextricably interwoven with this problemis another—the devising of an equitable system by-which-: adequate provision canbe made by-the individual for those dependent upon him in case of disaster or death overtaking him- before he completes his life-work; or, .again, in his own* case, for that inevitable ^period when ...

"It has been defined," I said wearily, "as doing- without something which you want iri order that you may some day buy something- which you probably will not require." Polly looked at mc reproachfully. "And you were preaching it to MB!" "I was only suggesting'it to you',"-I corrected, "because—well, because— Polly turned impatiently to her mirror. "What is the matter, Jack? Why don't you go on?" I looked at Polly, who seemed to be. engaged in- forcing a hatpin through her cerebellum, and shuddered. There is perhaps no more difficult thing in the world for a man to do than to tell a SPOILED AND PRETTY WOMAN,., that he can no longer furnish her. with the things to which she is accustomed.
