S.A. BORDER DOWNS COUNTRY. POSSIBILITIES AT TINTINARA. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 18 December 1914
S.A. BORDER DOWNS COUNTRY. POSSIBILITIES AT TINTINARA. The future of a large proportion of that part of the great Border Downs country, known as the Border Downe district, South Australia, lies in the "direction of sheep. Of that there is not the least possible, probable, mha dew of a doubt. When the enter- prise is managed properly, wheat grow :ng, pu.e and simple, can be made to pay.. but the Tintintara land, taken as a whole, is decidedly not a cereal pro position. Some very fine crops of both grain and hay have been raised from time to time, and during the rather ex tended process of clearing the ground of timber and rubbish which itcerries oereal orops of one kind or ainother must be grown; but once the land has been completely freed of the the lime stone and roots it should be laid down to lucerne and other fodders, and utllis ed almost exolusively for stock-fattening purposes. 'lIe ultimate destiny of the country is fully recognised by the majority of the settlers, and their ...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 18 December 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") The fillip that is -to be given to wheat growing as a result'of the scar cty, and the special inducements tbhat are to be held out through the exigen cies of the world wide effects of the war, centres attention, upon that par ticular branch of rural industry. 'l~s imparts particular interest to the re salts from the experimental wheat plots, conducted by thle New South Wales Department of Agriculturo af Walls Walla. These were harvested on November 27, under the supervision of Mr. H. U. Stenmag, inspector of Agricu!ture, and resulted as follows: 10 Ibuslels 52- 11i.; Romen, 9 bushels 1-tlb.; Marshall's No. 3, 9 bushels 12 lb.; Yandilla King, 9 buseels 81b.; Federation, 8 bushels, 47 lbs.; Cleve land', 8 bushels 17 lbs. The Federation crop was tipped by a late frost towards the end of September.

TURF TOPICS (By "Flemington.") Fiortunately the thrcertened clash- br. tween Aspendale and It-lunlond on Saturday was averted. Tinere is rea son for congratulation on the decisloa arrived at between tile clubs concerned. It would never do to have thest. "clashes."

John Murray took . prominent part in bringing about an understanding betwenn Aspendale and tlchnibmnd in the tdispute referred to, and perhaps we can take thisrs ias -e. ing that the Government saw anir-el m course of development and made a move towardb nipping it in tihe bud. iti is notorious that when ridlers art called upon to give evidence at 'l'ur inquiries, thley are often founid ver disanclined to t:lk.

CLARIFYING BEESWAX. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 18 December 1914
CLARIFYING BEESWAX. in aeply to a correspondent, who writes to know how to clarify beeswawx and prepare it for sale, we present the following information from an autlien tic source: If you do not have sufficient comb and refuse wax to make investment in a mechanical extractor worth while, you can render small quantities satis factorily in a wash boiler. Make a wooden rack of strips of hard wood of such size as to fit the bottom of your boiler, and be held an inch or two above it; this to keep the bag or comb from touching the bottom of the boiler and burning. Place the comb to be rendbired -in hesian, for other, loosely woven bags, fill the boiler :nearlyj fill of water, immerse the bags containing the comb in thewater, cover them with a board upon which a heavy weight may be placed. PuLt the boiler upon the kitchen stove and let the water come to boiling. The wax will melt in the boiling water and come to the sur face, where it may be later taken off as a hard cake, or It may be di...
FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 18 December 1914
FOR WOMEN (Bly kdith M.t Burtis. -t The reeson wily sewing is a disagree able tdbk to women is, I believe because they lack system in planing and exe cuting their work, and have only a vague knowledge of the necessary tools. The ordinary tools required for home sewing are not expensive, nor dilficult to procure, and 'ans, -uro 1 can help you plan your sewing' so that you -can do it with the least possible ex penditure of time, money, and physi cal and mental energy. Why devote your time and judgement in shopping economcially, and then with a reckless disregard of nerves and strength do the season's sewing in an unsystematic way. waThe thing women understand the least about, and consequently hold too lightly in their household duties, is the value of physical strength and mental energy, and it is because of this waste of these most essential qualities that sewing makes so many ivomen ill and nervous. Of course the ideal condition is to have a well lighted, fully equipped sew ing room...

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 18 December 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (Frem our Special Correspondent.) It is at last brought home to a large section of the-community that we are at war in real earnest. The price of a "pint'" has been put up and counter lunches are threatened with extinetion. Cities might crumble before the bilast of the howitzers on the other side of the world, and piles of dead be con signed to the furnaces, but beyond a passing thought, not much impression wasc made upon the many who zan go along with cheerful irresponsibilhty so long as they are not directly incouveni enced. They let the other fellow vol unteer antd fight and die for the coun try that is so good to them, and will scarce raise a perfunectory cheer as he tiarches to face the ordeal that it needs to be a man to face. But let thoretbe some interference with the even tenor of the way of the selfish irresponsibles and sonme deprivation of the creature comforta so dear to them and they raise an outcry that ascends even unto the heavens. Such is the outcr...
VALUE OF RYE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 18 December 1914
VALUE OF RYE. Here is a small item which contains a big truth in farm management:-The greater the alnount of decaying vege table matter you can incorporate in til?e soil, tile better will be your crolps, oven in bad seasons. Very rarely do we see a farnner turning under a good crop of second growth clover. It seems to him like a big waste. So also is it rare ;o see farmers sow rye in the autumn on ground front which ensilage has been taken, to turn under the next spring. A bushel of rye to the acre after a good tlhorough disking will make a fine cover crop for winter. Thoen, when turned under in the spring, it helps put a lot of needed humus in thie land. Then, besides, you can pasture your cows on it and get a lot of milk two weeks in advance of the regular pasture.
CARE OF EGGS IN SUMMER. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 18 December 1914
CARE OF EGGS IN SUMMER. Every year, as the warm weather ap proaches, we notice inl the market re ports comleaints about the poor condli tion ill which the bulk of the country eggs arrive. The result is, of coarse, that merchants are chary about trading in such pioor-quality produce. Egg col lectors, at one 'tilme, made fsome allow ancc for losses in this direction, and no doubt storckeepers and others still do so. The allowance is quite fair in re gardl to careless people, who habitually sell stale eggs, but it is most unfair to those wrho are careful, and whi,-mnr ket their eggs in primnle condition. One of tile main causes of loss is the pre sence of male birds amuong the hens A fewo farmers have adopted better mle thlods andl enclose their breeding stock. 1and a few market infertile eggs only The majority, however, allow flocks of muixed sexoes on the farms, with the re suit that during warm weather the eggs are practically wvorthless for trade. An other factor is the dirty nest....
KILLING WEEDS IN WALKS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 18 December 1914
KILLING WEEDS IN WALKS. The best way to dispose of weeds on gravel walks is possibly to poison them. provided one wants at absolutely weed free piece, and tooed much hoeing woulo be necessary to keep them down. g recent exl.eriment was tried with lif-. ferent strengths of. poison. 'the strong: est was one lb arsenate of sodn to 2 gal. water; next lib to 4 gallons; then 1 to 6 gallons, r nd still another more dilute. The material was a.ppicd with a sprinkling can, and the first two killed the weeds'utterly, while tlhe weaker solutions did not do so, though they checked growth materially. It is stalted that if the affected path can be raked prior to spraying, so much the t?etter, as this operation exposes the roots. The most opportune time tr: spr:ay is in thie bet of summer, and if the work is done towards nightfall. the pnisin has n better chance to soak in dur'ing tle nlight and get at Ihy root'.
