FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. A matter which is very often ne ments. They are so often allowed to glected on farms is the care of imple lie about the place in all weathers that their periods of usefulness are seriously curtailed. After an imple ment has done its first season's won-: the owner should, when stowing ;t in its proper place, see that it is in or der, and if there are any defects he should make a note of them, or, if convenient, it is better to have such defects repaired at once. Then he knows that his machine is ready for the next season's work. ' With such implements as the stripper or har vester, where belts are used, the belts should be removed and have a iittle oil rubbed on them, and ibe put away in a cool place. The seed drill is an implement that requires a lot of care. A little extra attention will often save two or three days' delay. Sucl- im plements as ploughs, harrows, culti vators, etc., which are of iron, do not require a shed so much, but a...

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. Many devices have come under no tice from time to time to cope with the mice pest in the wheat or hay field. Building the stack upon a raised platform does not answer the purpose; the mice will climb up the blocks up on which the platform is built, run along underneath the platform boards, and so enter the stack. Enclosing the stack, as some farmers do, with fine j wire netting, will also he found un suitable, as the mice will climb up the wire netting. The only successful method to keep them out is to enclose the stack with a fence of galvanised iron, either plain or corrugated, about two feet high. Let the iron into the ground to a depth of ofuv inches, and place it in a slant ing position, pointing outwards from the stack, all around it", taking care to leave no open space at the cor ners; it will be found impossible for mice to enter a stack thus protected.

But I couldn't make no one 'ear, so I come round to the back."

HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. The guiding principle in the appli cation of manures is to use them as supplementary to the natural soil re sources, and not as a main source of fertility. Most good agricultural soils contain vast stores of dormant plant food, and the aim should be to develop as much as possible of this plant food latent in the soil by thorough cultiva tion, supplementing any deficiencies with fertilisers. What those deficien cies are can best be found out by ac tual experiment, and, having deter mined them, the problem for each farmer and orchardist is to ascertain the most profitable and economic way of supplying the soil's needs. In all districts, with a light rainfall, super phosphate is likely to continue the most profitable of all phosphatic man ures. In the wetter areas, however, especially on soils deficient in lime, basic slag, or Thomas' phosphate is a valuable adjunct to the production of good crops. When a man and a girl whisper to gether they are almost certainl...

"Yes," he said, "but you've mistaken the day. I've been waiting since last night!"

CHAPTER IX. Flight. I [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

CHAPTER IX. She excused herself at the break fast-table, fearing to hear the news of the night. The maid who wakened her had babbled some story of r tramp who had fired the ricks on Mr. Rathway's farm, and had succeeded in burning down the school-house as well. The police were looking for the man, she said, but he was not taken. "A good-for-nething body that should be in prison," the girl added. Leila made 110 comment. It was ten before 'Desdy awoke, and she must dress him and give him breakfast. When he had gone off to his games with Robert, the groom (a silly man who knew nothing of motor 'buses and would learn less from so arrogant a master as Desdy), Leila herself went down to the gardens and was not surprised to iind Hugh wait ing for her. Evasion was possible to neither, and they fell at once to speak ing of the story of the night. "The fellow appears to have gone from here on the I-Iaddington-road," Hugh said. "He must have doubled upon his tracks and returned to Aber feldy v...

A JOURNALIST'S WORK AND HIS TRIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

A JOURNALIST'S WORK AND HIS TRIALS. By Johu Foster Fraser. Mauy aspirants for journalistic fame want to be a special correspondent. It is an ideal life. You go everywhere and see everything. You are the ac credited representative of a great newspaper, and your profession is the open sesame to witnessing all the his toric sights of your day. You may toe sent to record the Durbar in India; or to describe a Presidential election in the United States; or to witness fight ing in the Balkans, and send thrilling despatches to your journal; or to have a good time at Cowes, writing about the regatta; or to attend huge poli tical demonstrations and provide pen pictures of the proceedings. And everywhere things are made easy and pleasant, for the Press is a great fac tor in the land. It is a charming picture, and I re member the time, twenty-five years ago, when, as a very junior writer, I looked upon the special correspondent as a very god in my profession, and I had dreams that maybe one day...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

-II. Geraldine naturally knew nothing of Bob Keating or his sins, and she made but scant reference to tliem at the luncheon table. Old Farmer Rath way was sure to rob the Insurance . Companies, she said, and what did it matter? The villagers had enjoyed a bonfire, and there was the end of it. Her manner toward Leila continued to be gracious; but while it may have deceived her brother, the object of her new civilities was not to be de ceived. Leila believed her to be a kindly woman at heart, but one who was obsessed by this idea of saving Hugh from what she believed, quite conventionally, to be the penalties of his folly. For that, Leila saw, she would sacrifice much, and the so-call ed canons of hospitality first of all. No doubt some plan of action had oc curred to her and she was even then occupied in carrying it out. Leila felt herself surrounded by perils so sub tle that her woman's intellect could give no battle to them. She must leave this house; there could be no alernative. ...
