HUMUS! WHAT IS IT? ITS RELATION TO SOIL NITROGEN [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
.HUMUS! WHAT IS IT? ITS RELATION TO SOIL NITROGEY', To ninny this article may seem su perfluous, but we think it seasonabl.: to fully explain its meaning and its value to plant life. Scasinable, because the majority a., our farmers have muoch stubble or trash that. can be converted into the very necessary soil conlstitutent. WHAT IS HUMUS? Hu-nu.- is derived froim th.. gradual decay of any vegetable matter that inay be turned into the soil; this is hastened by its- gradual incorporation with the soil, combinced with thorough working and exposure to the atmos phere. Where it is lacking the all imlportant soil nitrogen is absent. The organic portions of our soils might be just the same in both light (easily worked) loeams and our heavy clay lands. The humus or decayeu formi is always noticeable by the sluokI or dark appearance that the soil pre sents. Sandy soil devoid of humus is very light in colour, but a good sandy loam is always rccognised by its dark appearance. Tihe same applie...
THE ENSILAGE STACK. THE QUESTIONS OF SIZE, MATERIAL, AND CURING. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
THE ENSILAGE STACK. THE QUESTIONS OF SIZE, MA T1ERIAL, AND CURllING. When the dairs farmer decides to make an ensilago stack lihe should soee lect a level site and set out the staok square. rather tlian oblong, so as to have the greatest capacity with the least exposure to the atmiusphere. It is at the sides of the stack that the waste occurs. The stack-bottom should be firm. Cut sutlicient grass or other crop to provide material to make a layer Oft. to 8ft. thick. Cart the grass as soon as mownt and firm this as soon as possible, reinembering that the usual prooess of stack-building is reyersed in ensilagen-making, for the sides must be higher than the centre, and a damp or wet dcay is rather better than a dry one. When the whole has settled these sides should be as denso as the rest of the stack; for, with the exclusion of air, waste is avoided. The following day the first layer will have heated to probably 130 deg. F. ; then a further quantity should be cut, and sulfficient stack...

MADAME LENA CONLY [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
MADAME LENA CONLY The Gonly Company drew good houses at the Orbost Mechanics' Institute on Monday and Tuesday nights, but it is evident that the merits of this famous singer and her talented company are not so well known or appreciated as they should be, or the building would have been packed from floor to ceiling. Those who attended, par ticularly on Tuesday night. must have realised that they were get ting an entertainme-nt such as will very rarely., indeed be provided in an outside country town. There was an entire change of pro gramme on the second night and as encores were the rule and double encores not infriequent the performers had to put in a consi derable amount of work Madame Conly, who sang seven songs on the first evening and nine on the following one, seems.to have im proved since her last appearance here. She has a voice of great power- and very beautiful quality, capable of rendering to perfection every kind of vocal exercise Her songs included the Japanese Love Song...

POST OFFICE COMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
POST OFFICE. COMEDY. High tragedy turned to comedy and comedy to farce at a post office in West London recently. Shortly before live o'clock a young man entered. In his 'hand was an open letter, delicately perfumed, on faintly tinted paper. The subtle fragrance of the letter drew the attention of the eus toiners, who noted also the somewhat agitated angle of his hat and a certain \vildness in his eyes. Making swiftly for the telegraph counter he scribbled oin form after form, crushing them in succession and throwing them aside. Finally, with an air of sombre satisfaction, lhe threw the last form across the counter accompan ied by a sixpenny piece. The girl behind the counter picked up the form andl read it quickly. "'Another halfpenny, please." "Nonsense," the young man said. ''Only twelve words." "Thirteen," replied the clerk. "This -pointing with her pencil--"should be two." Unconscious of the interest taken by some half-dozen customers, the young mani took up the telegram. "You I...
CONCRETE RAILWAY TIES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
CONCRETE RAILWAY TIES. Elastic concrete ties of great strength" holding bolts and ndils better than wood are claimeil as a now German railway product. Ties of iron and steel have been used to some extent, for many years, but are mupch more rigid than wood, and otherwise less satisfactory, and:the reinforced concrete ties hither to tried have proved disappointing. The new concrete is made from a mixture of asbestos fibres and cement. Mtother (upstairs): "Bobby, did you bring up "a spoon folr your medioine, as'I asked you?" Bobby: "I couldn't find a spoon, ma, so I brought up a .fork.'!
LUCERNE AS A FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
LUCERNE AS A FERTILISER. Some interesting c?idence wit;i re gard-to the fertilising influceco upon the soil of lucerne, owing to thi capa city of that plant for- alxorbing free nitroger from the atmnosphere and con veying it to the soil through the roots, is oolitributed by Mr. 1I. Jacob, of Mildura : "'Having previously had good crops of maize by the application of farm yard lanure, I have? this season had one, if not the best, under another sy.sterm of treatment. 'This crop grew on an average 9 or 10 feet in heigh It was the healtlhiest and dar?est gre:en possible, and not tho slightest signr of ,yellow leaf undernatlh. rhe folhlw ng are the facts concernfilg this clop -fin altering iny land I had tccasion to plough up a aeroe of land which lhad been unrder lucorno for 15 yeaors.

THE LUCERNE-SOWING SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
THE LUCERNE-SOWINlG SEASON. "Every wheaigrowoer should have lucerne on Ihis farm if he has a suit able piece of laud_ at all," said a well known farmer not Inog ago; but :ni saysing that lie must not, Ie regar le as suggesting that every farmer shoultd groin lucerne hay for the metropolhtan market, for a little study of the sta tistics of the crop shows that it does not require a very large increase in production to depress prices to the unprofitablo point. Increae in the area under luoilne has been achieved in the past ten or fifteen.years by a series of advances and retreats. lJe iween the years 1908 and 1910, for ,instance, there was a steady increase from 43,500 acres of lucerne to 69,000 acres, the high prices offering for hay during 1908 no doubt inducing grow ers to extend. The increased pro duotion in 1910, however, aided b1y a good season, reduced prices, and thus affected thlo sowings in 1911 and 1912, for in the latter year the aret fell to 63,000 acres; .

LIQUID MANURING. TI-iE IBEST SYSTEM. "About thlree yeais ago,"'- a corres pondent writes us (the N Z.
