S SERIOUS BiSH FIRES. TOWNSHII P THREATENED. STRENUOUS B3ATTLE BY FIRE FIGHTERS. SYDINEY," Monday. On Saturday morning a fire broke out between the farms of Messrs. J. T. Naugh ton and Pinn, at. Redground, about five miles from Crookwell. The day was hot, and a westerly wind fanned the flames, which rapidly spread over thickly-timbered country towards Laggan. About 200 men turned out. The strong wind made opera tions difficult and dangerous, and despite their valiant efforts the fire reached Lag gan.

THE MAKING OF HUMUS. MAINTAINING SOIL FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
THE MAKING OF HUMBUS. MAINTAINING SOIL FERTILITY. There is not a more important matter for those who would keep. up the fertility and efficiency of his soil than tht conserva tion of the decay;ed vegetable matter in tl:e soil called humms. We know one.thing for certain, and that is that 'the originial wheat growing lands of Australia were productive with humnus and filled with the potash deposited there from burning grass for ages. It is. noticed that these soils by long cultivation are losing their original darker color, and in proportion as that change takes place so also are they losilg their power of crop production "We have noted a decided change," a practical carce spondent writes, "since our first opera tions in humus conservation.

CHECKING WASHOUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
CHECKING WASHOUTS. Sir,-With regard to checking washouts, re ferred to in "The Leader," we find that hillside ground washes very badly during heavy storms. Small rivulets start at the top, and having an un. impeded course, form gullies. The water during every - ensuing storm follows these cuts, finally forming such large washouts. that the field may be almost ruined. A remedy found effective here is to check the flow of water by dividing it up into small -quan ities. With a plough, make small ditch&lt;es around or alongside tile .hill. A single furrow is sufficient. Turn the furrow to the lowe side. Do this every 40 feet, and allow just suffi c-ient fall to carry off the water. The less fall the better, as it allows the debris to settle in the checks. Whenever the furrows cross the gullies mnake checks of small brush, tramping it solid. Do not use stones. Nothing will do as well as brush. By-and-bye the furrows and checks will be level, full of sand and debris. This will not...
