FARM APPRENTICES A DENMARK LESSON. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
FARM APPRENTICES •A DENMARK LESSON. I Teaching agriculture side by side with ; actual practice is successful, and has I been done for many years in European I countries, notably, in Denmark. Men i with capital who are owners of large | farms are obliged to hire managers who • have practical training in farm man j agement. j Such men establish on their places a ! system which is really like a farm col jlege, where practical work and theory | are combined. Boys and young men j who want to take up farming are loeat i ed by advertising, and are placed on | these forms to work and to receive a small salary, which is increased as they become more, efficient. They have to' work with the men in the field every day,and in the begfnnmg are given easy tasks. Gradually their work is made more difficult, and as they advance, they are allowed to handle the various kinds-of farm ma chinery. The boys are obliged to "keep a record of everything that is done. In the last year they are given gangs of ...
Mortality Among Lambs [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
Mortality Among Lambs Another factor in the matter, and an important one, is to have good feed for the ewes at lambing time. Positive in jury may be caused by putting ewes on extra special feed prior to lambing. The | lambs have turned out small, the ewes j have had difficulty in lambing, and the j mortality among both ewes and lambs has been great. Such feed should be reserved for the ewes after lambing is over. If the ewes are on a star vation diet they drag the life out of their offspring in running about the paddock, and they are liable to desert their lambs at birth, particularly if the lambs are weak. The flow of milk ~s not what it should be, and the lambs do not get robust quickly, and are, there fore, liable to succumb the more reaai ly if bad weather sets in- Now we come to what the New Zealander describes as one of the puzzles of latter-day sheep farming, the distressing and dis concerting mortality that takes place among our biggest Iambs. He says: — "We all know the cau...
Remedial Measures [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
Remedial Measures The remedy suggested is to dock the lambs as soon as the trouble com mences. The bleeding is supposed to relieve" the system, and a cure is effected. "But this. year in New Zealand," continues th-e writer, "the deaths have continued after docking has taken place, particularly among the ewe lambs, which, of course, do not bleed as freely as the wether lambs. The feed may have been extra good this season, the spring in Canterbury being fine, warm, and dry. In my own case the only way I could stop the mortality was by putting the mob of sheep for a few days on sl practically bare, paddock, a winter fallow for turnips. But there are many farmers who d,oubt that these deaths are altogether caused by over feeding. They point to the fact that in the management of all animals, in cluding human beings, the object is to give the young as much .good, natural food as possible. The deaths all oc cur about one time, and some suppose that this results from something in the grass ...
LICK TROUGH. A SIMPLE METHOD. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
liICK TROUGH. A SIMPLE METHOD. The salt lick trough illustrated is taken from the "Queensland Agricul tural Journal." It consists of a V shaped trough, with a lickboard run ning at the apex of the V at a suitable distance. In practice, the roof was taken off, the salt (coarse Liverpool) j placed in the trough, and the lid re placed. 'Hie salt by gravitation falls through j the slit, l%in. wide, running the full length of the lick board at the apex, j and stays until the sheep lick it away. as fast as it is taken from the lick board, it is replaced automatically from the trough. The. drawing shows thg construction of the lick, and no one at all handy with carpentering tools should find it difficult to build it.

SHEEP HINTS FOR BREEDERS Discussion on Lambs [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
HINTS FOR BREEDERS By J. P. Discussion on Lambs A writer in the New Zealand "Far** mer" has been discussing the reports of high percentages of lambs. He dis counts some of them, but says 130 per cent, tallies are authentic. Such figures can be obtained only, by good manage ment The retaining of twin ewe lambs for breeding purposes, the culling out of all ewes that have failed in any sea son to have a lamb, and the throwing out of ewes with defective udders, dam aged teats, and so on, alii count for a Very gTeat deal in the securing of a big percentage. But the most potent factor is the condition of the ewes at the time they go to the ram. The* New Zealand authority cites cases where ewes, culled from a flock, have been taken to a farm, and have beaten the mob from which they were culled. The reason was that they were put on better feed just be fore and during tupping time. They •were not in extra good condition, but they were placed on special feed at tup ping- time, and flushed in ...
WORKS BURNT ADELAIDE FIRM SUFFERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
WORKS BURNT ADELAIDE FIRM SUFFERS I Between midnight and one o'clock on the morning- of December 26 a fire broke out in Messrs A. Fengilly and Co.'s furniture and railway carriage works, and gutted the greater por tion of the premises. A conservative estimate of the damage is £30,000. The factory was one of the largest of its kind in the State. For the most part the buildings consisted of great sheds of galvanised iron, The firm has in hand contracts for railway carriages and tramcars. The watchman about half-past, twelve o'clock found the fire burning near the engine house. He immediately gave the alarm, but before the nearest reel could reach the spot nearly the whole three acres of buildings were well alight, and it was only after some hours that the firemen managed to conquer the flames. Two large timber mills and the en gine house, and large stocks of timber and furniture were destroyed. Two horses were locked in a stable. They could not be released, and wrere burnt to death. M...
S.S. TASMAN AGROUND IN TORRES STRAITS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
S.8. TASMAN AGROUND IN TORRES STRAITS The s.s. Tasman, which left Mel bourne on December 17 for Java, went aground in Torres Straits on the shore of a sand3r intet, called Bramble Bay, on Sunday, December 28. The Tasman belongs to the Royal Packet S.N. Company and was only launched last year, being under com mand of Captain Goldhuis. She called at Townsville on December 23, and was due to- touch at Thursday Island when news of her mishap came to hand. On the present disastrous trip she carried a large number of pas sengers from Melbourne and Sydney. Among them were Madame Nordica and Mr. Romayne Simmons, of the Nordica Concert Company. For some time anxiety was felt as to the fate of the steamer, as she was stated to be taking in water fast. She remained fast aground for some 24 hours, and was then floated off. The pumps were found able to keep the water from rising. The vessel was, at latest report, being towed to Thursday Island by the Japanese steamer Inaho Maru. *
VALUABLE HORSES DROWNED WHARFSIDE INCIDENT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
VALUABLE HORSES DROWNED WHARFSIDE INCIDENT xnree norses belonging to Mr W. Leech, a cartage contractor, of Flin ders street, were drowned in the Yarra at wharf No. 13, on the afternoon of December 30. The team, with a lorry, was driven on to the wharf by a young- man, and just as he was trying to turn, a land in &lt;V stage was dropped with a loud noise. This startled the horses, and they backed into the river. The driver jumped off the lorry just in time to prevent his following his team. The horses, which were valued at £45 each, were drowned, and their carcases and the lorry were after | wards taken out by a steam crane, a diver being employed below the water to affix the chains.'
MAN OF PARTS VICTORIA'S NEW GOVERNOR. "WILL GO A LONG WAY." LONDON. December 5. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
VICTORIA'S NEW GOVERNOR. "WILL GO A LONG WAY." LONDON. December 5. Heir to a peerage, statesman, lawyer, citizen, soldier, man of affairs, and good all round sportsman is the Hon. Arthur Lyulph Stanley, the new Gover nor of Victoria. Those who know him well, say that he is destined to go a long way, and one who meets him for the first time i easily believes it, for he quickly im I presses by his charming personality, and compels respect by the quiet air of dignity, knowledge, and power which he associates with a kindly and helpful courtesy. Mr Stanley is obviously a man who, by continuous endeavor to make all hia work really useful, gives the best pro mise of success in the conditions of British public life and the social service of our day. Those who recollect the late Marquis of 'Linlithgow when, as Lord Hopetoun, he assumed the post of Governor of Victoria, are reminded of him in the presence of his successor. Yet perhaps Victorians will find an even closer resemblance to Mr W. A...
SURF TAKES TOLL THREE LIVES LOST. BOY GIVES LIFE FOR AUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
SURF TAKES TOLL THREE LIVES LOST. BOY GIVES LIFE FOR AUNT. Three, young1 persons were drowned at Cronulla (New South Wales) on December 30. They are Misses Marjorie and Daphne Louden, aged 22 and 16 respectively, daughters of Mr Alexander Louden, boot manufacturer, of Redfern, who is a prominent bowler, and their nephew, Alexander Louden (12). The family, with the exception of Mr Louden, senior, had been spending several weeks at their summer resi dence, At 7 o'clock in the morning Marjorie, Daphne and Alexander went for a swim in the surf at Shelley Beach. The spot where they entered the water is dangerous; treacherous currents abound, and several fatalities have occurred there. Marjorie soon got out of her depth, and was carried out to sea. She struggled against the currents, but be coming exhausted, went under. When she rose she screamed for help, and little Alexander plunged in to her assistance. He battled bravely, and reached his aunt, but was too ex hausted to help her. He di...
MR ELWOOD MEAD CALIFORNIAN VISIT LIKELY [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
MR ELWOOD MEAD CALIFORNIAN VISIT LIKELY It is thought that Mr. Elwood Mead, chairman of the Water Commission, will retain his position in Victoria, but will shortly visit California. Several weeks ago Mr Mead was offered the Professorship of Rural In dustries in the University of Califor nia, and it was announced that he proposed to accept the position, as it was one that was in many respects agreeable to him. The Government, with the sanction of Parliament ex pressed indirectly, asked Mr Mead to reconsider the matter, and he took till the first week of December to do so. Owing to the political crisis the intimation which he made to the Go vernment has not yet been considered by Ministers. It seems that the representations made to Mr Mead by the first and second Watt Governments, the sym pathetic attitude of the Opposition and Corner Parties in the Legislative Assembly, and the opinions expressed by irrigators have so impressed Mr Mead that he is disposed to remain in Victoria. It i...
