AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
AGRIOULTUTAL ITEMS. The ?arrot has a deep-rooting habit, and great care should be exercised min the preparation of a. good tilth. This desirabeit result is hastened by expos ing the land in a somewhat crude con dition, so that it readily breaks down to the weather. Soil. that is desti tute of lime does not grow carrots to the best advantage. There should not be more than .38 per cent. of milk-fat in the whey, which is the serum remaining after the curd has been removed, in the manufacture of cheese. Whey should be transpar ent and of a greenish colour. When a cheese has been carelessly made the whey is rich in fat, and of a whitish or milky colour. Turpentine, in which is dissolved as much camphor as it will take up, is pre-eminently the dressing for lacera tions, bruises, and cuts. Its antiseptio action is equal to that of carbolic acid; it speedily stops the bleeding, allays the pain, and hastens the process of healing. Few, if any, ulcers long re sist its continual application. T...

A DEAL IN DALMATIANS. . gentlemen went into a shopi:.n Bhirmningham and told the proprietor that he wantod to buy a Dalmatian dog to take abroad with him. "Certainly. sir," said the assistant.; "I've got, the very thing." In a quarteor of an hour he brought out the animal: the customer paid!:he money and departed. Before his train timei. how ever, a heavy shower fell . The gentlemInen returned with ::the dog in a state of indignation. Look t him '' he cried. "You told ,,o he as a Dalmatian. Give me --y aon Cy back. All his spots are waId off it the rain." The propr:etor apologised. "t's .il bhat stupid fool's mistake. eo called to his assistant.

PROTEIN AND NUTRITION. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
PROTEIN AND NUTRITION. Discussing the investigations into the nutritive value of proteins, Professor Wood recently said all the British ex perimente of a more practioal nature had been recalculated on a systematic basis by Ingle. From them it ap peared that increase of protein in the ration, beyond somewhere between Ij lb, and 21b, per 10001b. live-weight _sr day of digestible protein.'..;E. to have aay dire.t .;,iiuence on increase in live w'eight. They 'might fairly conclude, then. that about 2lb. of protein per 1000 lb, live-weight per day was suffi cient for a fattening ox. This amount was repeatedly exceeded in most of the districts where beef production was a staple industry, the idea being to pro duce farmyard manure riol in nitrogen. The economy of this method of aug menting the fertility of the land was very doubtful. Protein was the most expensive constituent of an animal's dietary. If the scientific investigator, from a study of the quantitative cornm ýosition of the prot...

POTASH AND CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
POTASH AND CROPS. One of the most striking effects of potash manures is the remarkable way in which they promote the growth of clovers and other leguminous plants. Thus when potash is applied to a field of mixed herbage, it encourages the growth of the clovers to such an ex tent that the general aspect of the vegetation is entirely changed. It also encourages the growth of the finer and more nutritious grasses A fur ther effect of potash is that it renders the plant more resistant to the attacks of fungoid parasites, well seon in the ease of rust on wheat, leaf-spot funw gus on mangolds, and oven in some cases "finger and toe" in turnips. Potash is the dominant manirial in gredient for potatoes, where it not only improves the qua]ity, but gi ea a high er yield, which contains a Barger pro portion of marketal'e size ptatoes..
REMEDY FOR GLARING LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
FOR GLARING LIGHT. A novel device has recently been perfected for overcoming the danger from glare in motor-car : -headlights. This devieo cansists of a rack of alum- inium plates, placed behind the main glass and in front of the lens -::and burner. These pla.tes are placed hori zontally, one above the other: about one-eigth of an inch apart,. and have their lower surfaces highly polished, and the upper surfaces painfed a dead black. The effect is that from a dis tanco of about 150 yards, the full light is seen without any apparent shading," b.ut as the car approaches, the light :and glare become weaker and weaker, intil, when a. few yards away, nothing can he seen but a faint grey glow.
WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. A SCARECROW GENIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. A SCARECROW GENIUS. Some further remarks on that peculiar genius, Francis Thompson, given by Mr Garvin in Meynell's biography : One day, greatly daring, Thompson thrust a bunch of manuscript in the door of the only Catholic magazine he knew. Sir months passed before the editor sampled it and found it good; and many more passed before the print ing of a piece brought the editor and the poet face to face. : Scarecrow as he was, he confirmed the impression his pen had made; he had written a learned thing with no books at hand save the "Blake" and "Eschylus" he had brought to London. . . Thompson's miserable life in London's under-world lasted for two years and five months. It began in November, 1885, and deliverance came in April, 1888. The meeting between Thompson and Mr Meynell, the editor, is thu. described:-" Many days after, my father, being in his workroom, was told that Mr Thompson wished to see him. 'Show him up,' he said, and wa...

QUAINT TENURES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
GUAINT TENURES. The kings and princes of England seem to have delighted to amuse them ~olves by the devising of tenures for their personal profit, pleasure, and amusement. Some in their nature (writes Paul Monckton in the "Con temporary Review") are such as to be unprintable in the twentieth century Press; these quickly came to be com muted to a money payment. Others, again, are positively amazing in the variety and nature of the oustoms by shich they were to be held. For instance, the Lordship of Bures, in Essex, was held by the sergeantry of scalding the King's hogs; Carleton, in Nottingham, by the service of one catapult in the year for all services; two farms at Caricoats, Yorkshire, by the service of finding, one a right hand glove, and the otiher a left hand glove, the whole of the Manor of Caldeoote was held by Humphrey de Bdhm by virtue of being Lord High Constable of England-a post now abolished on ac count of the degree of power and splen dour attaching to tihe office; Els...

FERMENTATION IN PAPER-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
FE,,NTATION IN PAPER AKI' G. An',mn the r..cent improvements in h n ' paper-making materials is a process for etaoting the starch from .cotton rags tat are used in making inen papers. PracticallU all cott?o? cloth ha's som kind of a filler, and much of .his is starch. In clippings rou n o? - cth thero is a eonsiderbe amount or starch filler. It was the ;ruc-e F.ormerlyv to soak the iags? in: warm ,ater, and then to boil -them in an alkali solution. But the effect of ih alkrli on starch is very slow, as it caus.e the starch to swell up, so that the solution reaches the inner part of the starch grains only with difficulty. 3Mair is added in the proper amount to convert the starch into a soluble sugar ~Bich readily dissolves out of the fibre of the cloth and leaves it free of the i lor. The active principle of the malt is the "enzymes" that attack the starch just as they do in the. brewing pr oces and convert it into a form ofi sugar that is easily disposed of.

A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 February 1914
A N EW JERSEY OCHA PI0. "What. is the highest record we can expect a dairy cow to make?" is a query that hss often been made. -?s it was with the trotting horse, 20 or 30 years ago, when animals began to ap pear that could trot a mile in ie-,s than three minutes, for instance, Maudo .. makint a record of 2.10, many thought that tne speed limit of the horse hal been reached, and so it. was with the dairy cow. When Teksa. Sunbeam, a Guernsey, made her phenomenal re cord of 857 pounds of fat. in one year. it was doubted by many who had not studied the bre?edntg of dairy m o, closely that her record would scarely be equalled, if ever excetlled.
