RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 21 May 1914
RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE. The poetry of life gathers around its colnlllencelnent andl its close, just as the poet finds inspiration in the rising or setting sun. Infancy has its charm of innocence, youth has its charm of energy and hope, age has its charm of pathos. But around mid di1 life there seems to gather no halo of poetry. The bird that wakes the morning with its song is silent in the midday hour. The burden and heat of the (lay are not favorable to music. The poet who will celebrate the open brow of childhood or the furrowed cheek of age will mind no inspiration in the anxious eye and busy front of middle life. The maiden, who looves falncy free amollg the meadlows: an tile tiredl face a;nd eyes of ,tranquil resiglnatlo ll, bordered by silver hIair, may :alike provoke Ilis Imuse. But who will sing of the middle-aged man or mllatronl? Tile (hole atnlosphere of sluril lives lac~ks the poetic qual ity. Their existence is practical. pro saic, dull. We find It hard to invest sluch li...

LIME FOR THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 21 May 1914
LIME FOR THE SOIL. The nature of the lime used de pends upon tile purpose for whlch it is required. Lime is applied to the soil for the following objects:-(a) To lighten heavy clays; (b) to sweet en sour soils; (c) to supply plant tood. In the irst case, eithcr unslacked lime (powdered quicklime), or qluite freshly slacked lime Is the most ef fective, the action onl tile clay being both of a mechanical and chemical nature, breaking up thle colloidal clay particles when the lime is slacked in contact with the clay. Slackied Ilime is much less effective, as the action is only a mechanical one, as there is no combination of the lime with the silicates of the clay.
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 21 May 1914
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFI'T." Large crops are not always profit able crops, and the tinest looking ani mal does not always give the larges. net return. For generatlons we hI.Lvte been taught and urged to grow bigge. crops, unlnlndful of tile relation o0 In creased cost to increased production. The value of increased production at ways depends upon whether or llOt It Is economically secured, i.e., upoli whether the margin of profit an acr is increased or not. A\nother important factor always to be kept in mind is the relation which any part of the farm enlterlprise bears to the whole. A crop judged by it self might be profitable and yet the system might be unprofitable. For example, timothy hay mllght prove a good crop In any one year, or even two or three years, but eventually the yield must decline, because a system of fprming with this crop alonie would not be likely to malntaiif fer tility, so that the system could not be called profitable. On the other hand, clover inlght not prov...

THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 21 May 1914
THICK OR THIN SOWING. The quality of seed which should be sown depends on a number of cir cumstances, such as character of the soil, Its moisture, freedomn from weeds, size, germinating power, age of the seed, and again on the time of sowing, the nature of tile plant. method of sowing, depth, etc. All these factors have to be considered; but in general we think it may be said that seed is sown more often too thickly than the reverse, especially when the operation is performed by hand. It is a waste of seed, and, moreover, detrimental in so far as it tends to produce weakly plants, sub ject to disease, and also to produce cereals that "lodge," a great source of loss to cereal growers. The age of the seed is an important factor. Old seed has lost some of its germinating power, .so new seed should be used. Grouchy Parent: No. sir, my daugh ter shall not marry you! Suitor: Brit your daughter wishes to, sir, and she told me Just now that you would deny her nothing. Grouchy Parent: That, ...
