The majority have cut two years' sup ply, and in some instances more. The greyish caterpillar has made its unwelcome appearance again. It has done a certain amount of damage to the crops, but as most of the crops will soon be cut for threshing they will not have time to do much havoc.

Intriguers glvo the Judas kiss Upon the Grecian soil to-day. From Pericles to Constanttne How far? but let the questions cease; All saving one, to be a sign: "Whero is the glory that was Greece?" A little nation, made so great By glorious deed and glorious pen, How could it now degenerate To take a price from other men? Democracy on Grecian ground Kirst learned to clip the tyrants wings; Now Greece takes on another sound— A puppet for the sport of kings. A weakling by a woman ruled, A woman by a brother led, A brother by ambition fooled— And Grecian liberty is dead! The voice that spoke for it In vain Is scorned In Athens once so proud; An accident of kingly reign Spoils all to which the Greeks were vowed., This was the centre of the earth, Where manhood saw and knew the light; Now all its ancient hope is worth Nothing, in ono mean m...

The Man on the Land. Depth to Sow Wheat. Discussion by Practical Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 December 1915

jfttc.«(xox k< The Man on the Land. Depth to Sow Wheat. I Discussion by Practical Farmers. The failure of wheat to germinate well in a number of cases in the Temora district led the members of the local branch of the Agricultural Bureau to discuss lately the depth at which wheat should be sown. The subject was opened by Mr W. de Little, who read a short paper setting forth the view that, though with favorable soil con ditions wheat may safely be sown to a depth of 3 or even 4 inches, with a loose, dry soil the closer to the surface the seed of early sow ings is placed the better. "Thisseason," he said," a certain amount of wheal has been known to make a shoot and roots, and then these have to all appearances died. After the general rain,wheat shoots'appearcd, but so thin as to suggest that a great many of the grains that had started growing had rotted. I'robabiy the older members will say that getuuuaUou from broadcast sowing was more satisfactory than in these days of dr...

Points for Pig-Raisers. Fattening Foods. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 December 1915

Points for Pig-Raisers. Fattening Foods. Certain results of experiments in feeding pigs carried out by the Irish Department of Agriculture may possibly be of value to Aus tralian readers. It was fouua that :— (1) It takes less food to fatten a pig in summer than in winter. (2; Barley, pollard and mai7e are of about equal value in the pro duction of live weight, but barley gives the finer quality of bacon. (3) It takes 5 cwt. of meal to make 1 cwt of pork. (4) One gallon of -separated milk is about equal to '21b. of maize meal. (5) A ton of potatoes in a mixed ration will produce lewt. of pork. (0) Weight increases more rapidly in the early stages of fattening than in the later with the same rations. (7) Raw meal, steeped in cold water for periods up to twelve hours, gives greater gains than cooked meal, while the quality of the pork is equally good.

Feeding the Boar. In Winter and Summer. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 December 1915

Feeding the Boar. In Winter and Summor. It requires some judgment to keep the boar in the best possible condition. Extremes are to be avoided, for the overfat boar does not, as a rule, make a satisfactory sire, and the half-starved one cer tainly cannot transmit vigor and constitution to his progeny in the same degree as if he were properly managed. To get the best results the boar should be iu fair flesh ; a reasonable amount of flesh will do him no harm, provided he gets sufficient exercise. A new bulletin of the Department of Agriculture, Ontario, Canada, points out that an exclusive meal ration will not give good results, especially if the ration is made up of maize. It is true that maize can be feed to a boar without injury, but it must be fed moderately and in conjunction with something more bulky, for it is fattening and de bilitating. Ground oats or bran may be used with maize to slightly broaden the ration. Hut a boar needs something be sides grain and meal to be iu his bes...

Lucerne and Nitrogen. Divided Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 December 1915

Lucerne and Nitrogen. Divided Opinions. Does lucerne add to the supply of nitrogen when the regular hay crops are harvested and . sold for consumption off the farm ? The question was touched in a recent issue of these "Notes," but it is worth another reference. We are told by one group- of ob servers that lucerne will increase tlie nitrogen contents of the soil, and they cite the heavy crops of ytain that are harvested after lucerne land his been broken up. The other group .would h?ve us know that if the bay crops are! regularlj removed the soil is left no richer in nitrogen and distinctly poorer in other mineral plant food. The increased yields from the grain crops they hold to be due to the improved texture of the soil, and to the humus that is added by the decay of the upper feeding roots of the lucerne as the tap root strikes deep and deeper. To settle such differences, there is only one way for the scientist— careful and exhaustive experiments —but for the farmer there is anoth...
