EFFECT OF DRAINING ON THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 March 1914

ECT OF DRAiHfKS OK THE 8UJL. Tho most important result is that it makes tho .soil ivaniitT. A wet .soil is cold, chieily because tho water in it is constantly evaporating, and evaporation is a cooiing prueo.-*. To illustrate tins: J.i' tho bulb of 0110 thermometer is covered with a wet muslin, and tho bulb 01 another similar tiitrniomoler is lcl't uncovered, tho wet thermometer may ngisiu- as much as 15 degrees cooler wnen both are swurg in dry air. This is due to tho cooling Lll'eot of tho evaporation of the Water. Moreover, water is a poor conductor of heat; wot soils warm in tho sun slowly, beoaitao tlio water they cental holds down the temperature. '.i iiore is uually a de ference of 5 to 10 degrees between drain ed and uiidrained soil in tho same field In fact, tho temperature of a_ soil in .summer is very largely determined by tho amount ul water it contains; tlio wetter it is, the colder it is.

THE HOLSTEIN. There aro several distinct groups of Dutch cattle-namely, the Friesian, tlie Black and White Holland, thu Black White-head Groningen, and the Red wluto Mouse-Rhine-rsscl groups. In some of the best herds the average an nual yield is stated to be SGO gallons and over, iucluding heifers with first calvcs. Older oows are said to give 1300 gallons, and the fat percentage is estimated at from 3 to 5 per cent. Among the dairyiug herds of Amcrioa the Holsteiu ranks only second to the Jersey. It is the largest of the dairy breeds, and the colour markings aro variegated blaok and white, there being a preference, as a rule, for animals on which the two colours are about evenly divided. The.se colours are never blended, but always sharply defined. The cijws aro lively, and have plenty of nervous energy, which is so essential a characteristic in auy dairy breed ; but unlike the highly-developed, Jersey, they; are at the same time very tract able, and sudden disturbances or un usua...
