IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. The value of permanent pasture la often prejudiced by the presence in it of a large number of weeds. Not only is the thick growth of tho nour ishing grass hindered, but' alBO nox ious weeds spoil tho quality, so that it is an essential part of good culti vation to keep the pasture free from such unsatisfactory constituents. The question-How can I keep my pas cure land free from weeds? is not an easy one to deal with. There is, bow ever, no doubt that by a judicious use of chemical fertilisers much can oe done. But chemical fertilisers alone will not do everything. Their use must often'be assisted by other meniis. Sorrel is caused by sourness of the soli through want of ventilation and drainage, and a deficiency of plant food, especially lime. Tho reason why fertilisers work in this beneficial way is that most weeds llourlsh In soils poor In the mineral constituents, lime, phosphate and potash. These good plant foods do not agree with weeds, while, on tho...
PRUNING CITRUS TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
PRUNING CITRUS TREES. Many people differ considerably In their opinions as to the proper way In which citrus trees should be pruned, i'he majority persist in the beliet that these trees reyuire only to be thinned out uud have the dead wood removed. i\iuch depends upon the construction placed upon such statements. If, as is generally the case, such an expres sion conveys the Idea ot merely cut ting out the dead wood and thinning parts ot the tree where the loliage is very dense, it does not go tar enough. An orange tree bears the greater part o£ its crop on the outside ....ncues, and while plenty of light and air are needed in the interior of the trees, this does not Imply a neces sity for hollowing it out, so as to .cave llie main inside branches de void of foliage. Nevertheless, it la necessary that much of tho inside growth should be removed, so that what Is allowed to remain will be well spaced and well lighted, other wise it will become starved and barren, making it useless, and...
CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. The carrot, which is not grown so extensively as it might be with advan tage, resembles in composition the turnip and mangold, but it is much more concentrated than the former, as it contains from 14 to 20 per cent, of dry nutritive matter against about 10 in the turnip. It flourishes best in deep loamy soils, not too wet, or the carrots are liable to rot, and not very dry, or the growth of the root Is cramped. The soil must be deeply cultivated to per mit the long-penetratiug root full power of development. The ground should be well manured. Half-rotted stable manure, applied in the autumn at the rate of twenty loads to the acre, is a good prepara tion. The requirements of the carrot for a liberal supply of plant food are so great that, in addition to the dung, it can utilise with advantage a supple mentary dressing of readily soluble chemical fertilisers. The application of 3cwt. superphosphate, 26 per cent, soluble, and Viowt. of sulphate of pot ash, appli...
Honest John. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
Honest John. George Carter, a very juat man, carrying on business In a-small vil lage, found it necessary one day to leave his establishment to the sole charge of John, his assistant, and, as usual, thinking it necessary to im press upon him the necessity ot deal ing talrly with his customers, left him with these wordB: I "Woli, John, it ever you are in doubt, quote a text to yourself, and | you will lind great help from it in your dealings." I He had not been gone long before a lady walked into the shop and ask j ed to see some shawls. John, pulling one out from under the counter, asked her how she liked it, stating that the price was half a crown. It was a very nice one, but being able to afford better; asked to see others. John, ready as over, fetched an other out of the same box, and spread ing this out on the counter, stated the price to be five shillings. Still Blio was not satisfied, so, fetching an other one, alBO out of the same box, he aBked her how she would like that at ...

ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS Before building a house most per sons recognl&e the necessity of hav ing aeflnae plan o( i io stricture. Comparative.,,- few pp..:'e. however, realise the desirability of planning the home grounds. And yet the latter may have quite as much to do with making a home as the former. In a short article It Is Impossible to give more than a few general princi ples. These, If considered In their proper relations to the situation of the building and the character of the sur roundings, may lead to pleasing re sults. The location «.-f walks and drives should be mai'o a mater of convenience. Neither tiki wasi-s nor the drives are ornament.il in them selves; hence they shoiiM not be more numerous than the IIM;S of the riai'y life call for. Curved wa:its and drives are often more pleasin? ihantstra:gli! ones, especially wharJ -he grounds are large. The curves, however, .should bo easy and natural, not Bhort and kinky. The home grounds may be compared with a pict...
FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
FOB THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. B. Harrison, Burringbar, Tweed. River, inquires as to the proper meth od of making a good and cheap com post heap, for manuring purposes. The compost heap is a most valu able adjunct to a farm or orchard. The principle of this method of mak ing manure is the fermentation of easily-decomposed vegetable material In the presence of earth and lime. It is not only substances liko peat, litter, straw, which form the usual basis of compost heaps that are thus deuom posoble, but almost every kind of or ganic substance, both of vegetable and animal origin, can be thus composted. Dead leaves, bush scrapings, sawdust, needs, tops and stalks of vegetables, as well as bone and animal refuse, the operation is much slower, and sub stances like bones should be first crushed. It Is also important to be sure that animal refuse BO treated Is not derived from a diseased source. As a general method of procedure, the following will be found satisfac tory:-Make a heap, In...
MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
MORAL REFLECTIONS. Conceit loses a man more friends and gains him more enemins tnan any other foible, perhapn vice, in the world. It makes him harsh to his in feriors, and disrespectful to his bet ters. Regrets aro a waste of time in every possible instance, except one. That one Is the Instance in whluh tho soul entertains them thoughtfully I and humbly until they becomo valu able lessons for the future. Down in Hockley they, are adding extra planks to the stiles to assist the hobble skirt ladles of the village In climbing over them. It Is certain ly more gallant to alter tho stiles than expect the ladies to alter their styles. We cannot too soon convinno our selves how eaBlly we may be dispens ed with in tho world. We thir.k thi.t wo alone are the life of tho circle in which we move; In our absence wo fancy that life will come to a gener al pause; and, alas, the gap that we leave Is scarcely perceptible, so quick ly is it filled! The whole story of earthly exist ence la one of comp...
ANTICIPATE DISEASES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
ANTICIPATE DISEASES. This is tho season when tho poultry house and poultry yard should be cleaned carefully. Mites and other insects, as a rule, are active at this time. Nature makes them prolilic, and resistant against repellants, so that they may propagate their spe cies to perpetuate themselves. I It will pay to go over tho poultry [ yard and clean every nook and cor ner. Cut the weeds, burn the trash, , rake oil of the rubbish. The interior of the poultry house should be cleaned and tho walls sprayed. Use a strong insecticide and a fungicide. See that the perches are sprayed and disinfected. It is worth while to white-wash the inside and paint the outside of the poultry house, i This will preserve the building, making it last longer, and will' afford considerable Insurance against insects and disease. It may help you eradicate disease germs and insectB.
TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
TO APPEAR AND'FEEL YOUNG. f A woman of uncertain years, who ' looked much younger than she was, took tho following rules' as her guido in maintaining- a youthful appear ance: Dress younger than you are. Never dress older. Never wear, old ladles' clothes, no matter liow old you get to be. Forget caps and wraps and shawls and easy chair gowns. Keep your figure young. You can not hope to look young if your figure is old. When you look in the looklng-glaFB gaze at yourself from tho baclt, not from tho front. If you look old, that is the point of view from which to re alise the fact. Beware of' what Kate Field called the middle-aged figure. It is round in the shoulders and hunched up iu the belt line. There is a certain roly poly look about tho woman who is older than she ought to be. Take care of your hair. Straggly hair 'goes with old age. Old people forget to shampoo, and they give up waving their locks. Don't let your hands get bony. Bony fingers belong to the aged. Keep the knuckles...

TRUE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
TRUE ECONOMY. Economy uud ecouomiso aro two much-used words, but sometimes, we tear, they are falsely applied. Jicono my as practised by some persons Is uothiug but extravagance, although one might have much trouble In con vincing the person of tlio truth o£ this statement. If one wastes time doing work which might bo employed in doing something of more importance-even though the work be very necessary-it is not prac tising economy. He might better hire some other person to have the work done and employ his own time at the thing for which he is lif ted. A housekeeper who insists on wash ing, sewing, and doing other things for which she Is not physically able may think she is very economical, but It she gets sick, one visit from the doc tor would more than pay for several. washings or hire several dresses made by a dressmaker and save her tho suffering beside. What is the use of buying a cheap pair of shoes that cost possibly half as much as a good pair, and have the soles drop off t...

THE MAN IN THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
THE MAN IN THE MOON. By A.L.S. Is It possible that tlie Man in th» Moon has descended from the posi tion of a fully-credited reality to that of a mere figure of speech; but even as such he is of great use to us, es pecially when wo wish to assert our ignorance of anything. When we slate that we know no more than the Man In the Moon wo are attributing the densest ignorance to that some what mythical personage; we at least credit him wltb being an agnostic of the purest water. Ho could scarcely be even that if he did not exist at all. By our common lauguuge we are perpetuating a remaruauie article ol old toiK-iure.

RENEWING OLD FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
RENEWING OLD FRUIT TREES. When fruit trees become stunted and diseased either by old age, bad soils, or unskillul management, tuey should be headed down or otherwise renovuted, or else cleared out and young ones planted in their stead. Most trees may be renewed by heau ing down, whicn is the simplest mode -luueea, all trees, excepting tlie peauu, nectarine, and cherry, will lie much improved by being heaued down on itiuir showing aymptoms oi uecay on tneir snowing symptoms of decay tion the whole of the head or bran ches ol the tree should be cut oil in a careful manner, with a saw if their brunches be largo, and with a knife it not of iarge dimensions. If the saw is used, smooth the wound over with a sharp knife, and make the cut in a slanting direction for the pur pose of allowing the water to run off freely.
