The Potash Problem. One Solution. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 December 1915

The Potash Problem. Ono Solution. What will we do foi potash ? The question is being asked by many orchardists, potato growers, and others who have been in the habit of using fertilisers in which suiphate of potash had a more or less prominent place. The Chemist of the Department of Agriculture is 3dvisitig the use of wood ashes as a temporary expedient, but 13 or 15 cwt. of ashes will be required to supply as much potash as is contained in 1 cwt of sulphate of potash, and the application must be made two or three weeks before the fertilisers that are to supply phosphoric acid and nitrogen. Is there no way that will involve less work, will be asked, for wood ashes in such quantities may take finding, and obviously will require to be spread at some trouble. It is interesting to know that exactly the same problem is pre senting itself to farmers in the United States, and some remarks by a well-known authority oil soil matters in that country, Dr Cyril Hopkins, of Illinois, are distinc...

The Man on the Land Bathurst Experiment Farm. Domonatratlon Ar*a Rmport.. The high prices, caused by the disastrous drought of last year and the international crisis, were the reasons for the demonstration area at Bathurst experiment farm earn ing an exceptionally large profit during the twelve months 1914-15. Soexceptlonal were the experiences, indeed, that the manager considers they should not be included in the average. Readers of these "Notes" are familiar with the cultural methods adopted on this portion of this farm—familiar, that is, with the alternation of wheat or oats for grain with fodder crops—and it is unnecessary to recall the details, but is worth while to restate the average profits per acre for the past six years. They were :—1909, £l 8s 8d ; 1910, .£1 3s 3d ; 1911, £1 18s 3d ; 1912, 13s lOd ; 1913, £2 4s 4d ; 1914, £?> 12s. A Favorable Season.

Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Gas tritis, then Ulceration. Why Magnesia Should be Taken After Every Meal. A flushed face may be the first noticeable symptom of indigestion, but disregard this warning and soon there is unmistakable pain, for indi gestion is a progressive ailment- At first the symptoms may be allayed by pepsin, bismuth, or soda, but these tilings do not overcome the acid in the stomach, which is usually the underlying cause of the trouble, and consequently the acid accumu lates and the occasional attack of indigestion becomes chronic dys pepsia. The dyspetie is always par ticularly liable to gastritis, and gas tric ulcers in the stomach arc only too often the forerunners of peritoni tis and death. That is why physi cians lay such stress upon the im portance of keeping the stomach free from harmful acid, and arc continu ously advising chronic dyspeptics as well as those who only experience occasional attacks of indigestion, to keep a little pure bisurated magnesia handy, and...

Ah, grandly they braved that tem pest, Stout hearted, stalwart, brave, Up the trench-rimmed cliffs they scrambled, Lashed by the Ocean's wave.
