PIGS IN PASTURE AND SOILING. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 March 1914

PIGS IN PASTURE AND SOILING. A pig fanner resolved to keep his pigs in the most approved and econ omical will provide green food early in tlio year. Some highly rated pasture plains are not available before warm weather, although they may then ho tho chief resource ior grazing; there fore earlier substitutes should be pro vided. It is well to allot tho land and provide it tho season before it is wanted. Couoh grass and lucerne aro naturally among the best for early pasture. Lucerne is ready for feed ing early and late, if one has land near the homestead suitable for it. liye corn (sown early in the autumn) makes excellent feed for pigs and all other stock in the early spring. For a quick growing crop sown in the spring, rape will generally bo accorded first place, as pigs may be turned into it when it is a foot high, which will be within a few weeks from sowing. A mixed crop may be used to good ad vantage for early pasture, viz., a sow ing of equal parts of wheat, oats and barley, m...

THE FEEDING OF PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 March 1914

THE FEEDING OF PIGS. ike opinion seems to bo general amongst a, certain class of pig-keepers, says a writer m "Farmer aiid Stock breeder, that vegetable food which contains so large a proportion of water loots, lor instance, contain about il pei cent, of water-cannot be beneficial loi pigs, whereas exactly the opposite ia the fact, as jiroved by experiments earned on, one must confess mainly in other countries, li'ave clearly proved that pig fed on nine-tenths meal ; and one-tenth vegetable matter actually liuye made a greater increase than; pigs led solely on meal. There is thus a considerable saving in the cost of food. It should be added. that there exists among certain baoon ciirers iii Ireland' a lear that the giving of,vegetable matter or roots to pigs during the fattening period .injures the quality of the pork and results in soft bacon. It is quite possible,tliatr.the result lypy be as stated, but it, may also be due, not to the unsuliability of the other iood led at the sam...

ARGENTINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 March 1914

ARGENTINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY.

There is every .VJ ospect, too, -of a still greater advance ?' ii tho near future. In the August United Empire, Mr. S. Hodred, of Buenos Ayres, gives an interesting ac count of cereal-growing in this South American republic, which bids fair to become one of tho world's granaries. Owing to conditions of climate and ?soil, Argentina cannot, it would seem, enter into serious competition with Canada in the production of "strong wheat. Barletta wheat, originally brought .from Italy, forms about 70 per cent, of tho crop, and Russian wheat -0 per cc.ut., while the remaining 10 per cent, would include various classes of wheat, "some of which are grown .spe cial...

MANURING GRASS LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 March 1914

MANURING GRASS LANDS. A crop of li tons of meadow hay per aero contains ou the average -l'Jlb nitro gen, Glib, potash, ana f2iib phosphoric acid.. Tile question of appropriate manuring of grass lands is complicated by the questions as to whether it is intended for permanent pasture, or to bo cut for hay; and. whether grass ami oiover is to predominate. it may be stated generally; that the proportion for clover is inei-ciieed. by the application of manures containing potash and phos phoric acid, and diminished by the ap plication of nitrogenous manures. Too heavy manuring 01 any kind, especially nitrogenous, . tends to the growth ox coarse grass. manures oontaia.ng limo such as plaster, also promote tie growth of clivers. For grass the best results .wero obtained by Laws and Gil bert in England by tho application of mineral (.-superphosphate and kainit), together wi.fch sulphate of ammonia. .Heavy grat a crops were obtained, to the almost tot. al exclusion of clover.

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 1 April 1914

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINE8S. "The two main causes of failure In life," said an observant business man, "so far as I have studied the ques tion, are incompetence and lazlnesB. "The first is, of course, not, as a rule, a matter in which the sufferer can be held responsible. If a man be lacking in natural judgment and ability then he must g> under, al though even here hones iy, persever ance and industry would do much to atone for the lack of natural gifts. "But laziness is by far the most pro lific parent of failure. It is responsible for the lack of ambition, and it is largely the cause of bad habits and dissipation. It is the lazy men who drink, gamble and neglect opportuni ties. It is they who are extravagant, because the extravagant man is too lazy to save. The active, energetic fellow is saved from these vices by his disposition, and could not become a failure so long as he retained bis normal character."
