CROPS FOR FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 30 April 1914

CROPS* FOR FODDER. The time sceina opportune to di rect the attention of farmers to the necessity of planting fodder crops, and for their subsequent conservation ar. a provision for stock and feod dur irg the winter. The weather this season has been very dry, and in al most every district absence ol' rain has been severely felt. The man who does not take this wise precaution of providing winter feed will have a grim realisation of his lack of forethought when he finds his dairy herd, an;; oilier stock, languishing lor the food which Nature withholds during her unpropitious seasons. It is, however, quite within the pro vince of the farmer to conserve suffi cient fodder lor his stock to tide over the winter. There are so many ex amples of the splendid results from silos that it is hard to conceive why the practice of making silage has not become more general throughout the State. When we have the managers of but ter and cheese factories reporting "the satisfactory increase of milk sup...

SIZE OF SHEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 30 April 1914

SIZE OF SHEAF. There can be no set size for a sheaf, u's the size must be regulated accord ing to conditions. For instance, in wet districts, or where the crops are lato in maturing, the small sheaf is the safer, as the sun and wind are better able to penetrate through the sheaf, and so minimise the risk of sprouting or moulding about the band. Again, by making th$ sheaves on the small size, stacking can be commenc ed a day or two sooner. On the oth er hand, however, the large-sized sheaves have their advantages. First, it is more economical on twine; sec ondly, much time is saved In stook ing and stacking; thirdly, a fair-sized sheaf will stand up against winds in the stook better than the small size.

ARGENTINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 30 April 1914

ARGENTINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY. Argentina, inspite of poor market facilities and a backward farm in g po pulation, already ranks third among the three wheat-exporting countries of the world. Its area devoted to wheat cultivation lias doubled during the past ten years, and is three times as large as it was only fifteen years ago. There is every prospect, too. of a still greater advance in the near future. Owing to conditions of cli mate and soil, Argentina cannot, it would seem, enter into serious com petition with Canada in the produc tion ol" "strong" wheat. Barleta wheat, originally brought from Italy, forms about 70 per cent, of the crop, and Russian wheat 20 per cent., while the remaining 10 per cent would in clude various classes of wheat, tome of which are grown specially for mak ing macaroni. In a general way, Ar gentine wheats are classed in the in ternational markets as intermediate in character between the soft white wheats of Australia and the Pacific Coast, and the herd red ...

FLOCK MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 30 April 1914

FLOCK MANAGEMENT. It' strong, healthy and vigorous lambs are wanted, extra care must be given to the ewe flock from time of mating to time of lambing. During tliis time the ewes should be steadily gaining in flesh. It is not desirable that the ewe flock after mating should ever have to become the scavengers of the farm; that business should be lett for store sheep. The ewe flock is too valuable for that work, for it is from this flock that the future feeding lamb is obtained. One often hears of heavy losses be ing experienced by sheep breeders through ewes being frightened by dogs and other causes, and this brings tc mind reasons that ought to be up permost in the minds of all those who have charge of lambing ewes. Among them there is one precaution that should never be absent, and that is this: That the ewe flock should never be allowed to be rushed by the Fhep herd's dog, nor should it be hurried when being driven, nor under any cir cumstances should it be given an opportunity to ...

FEATHERED WITH BOTTLES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 30 April 1914

FEATHERED WITH BOTTLES. Baron Kenyon, at one time ilord Chief Justice of England, loved to. hear himself talk, and his summings up were at times extraordinary exam ples of flamboyant speech. Here is a specimen taken from "Law and Laughter":— Addressing a butler convicted of stealing his master's wine, Lord Kne yon once said:—"Prisoner at the bar, you stand convicted on the most con clusive evidence of a crime of inex pressible atrocity—a crime thut de nies the sacred springs of domestic confidence, and is calculated to strike alarm into the breast of every Eng lishman who invests largely in the choice vintages of Southern Europe. | Like the serpent of old, you have stung the hand of your protector. For tunate in having a generous employer, you might without discovery have continued to supply your wretched wife and children with the comforts of sufficient prosperity, and even with some, of the luxuries of affluence; but, dead to every claim of natural affection, and blind to your own...

Others He had Heard Of. It was company field training. The captain saw a young Boldier trying to cook his dinner with a badly made fire. Going to him, he showed him liow to make a quick-cooking fire, say ing: "Look at the time you are wasting. When I was on the West Coast, I often had to hunt my breakfast. I used to go about two miles in the jungle, shoot my food, skin or pluck it, then cook and eat it, and return to the camp under the haU hour." Then he un wisely added: "Of course you have heard of the West Coast?" "Yes, sir," replied the young sol dier, "and also of Ananias, George Washington, and de Rougemont."

FOR THE FARMER. THE ROTARY DISC PLOUGH. The rotary disc plough possesses the following advantages over the mould-board implements:— [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 30 April 1914

FOR THE FABMEB. THE ROTARY DISC PLOUGH. The rotary disc plough possesses the. following advantages over the mould-board implements:— 1. Owing to the construction and movement of the discs the draught is greatly reduced, and the capacity of tlio implements considerably Increas ed. 2. Their great power in breaking up hard land makes it possible to com mence the ploughing of stubble lanu much earlier than is the case vheu mould boards are used,' thus increas ing the capacity of the soil to re ceive and retain moisture at a season when, under ordinary conditions, sat isfactory mould board work is im practicable. 3. The work is more cheaply done. The discs are so placed that one disc forces the broken soil sideways against the next one, pulverising it and performing the operation of pack ing, thereby improving the seed bed and preventing the escaped moisture to a greater extent than is possible in the more open work of other ploughs. Preference should be given to implements that have the...
