SELF-ADVERTISING ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 26 September 1912
?ELF-ADVERTISING ANIMALS. Sosmo animals walk delicately, some ie low, some fade into their surround ings, some put on disguise. On anoth or tack, however, are those that are noisy and fussy, conspicuous and bold tile self-advoertisers. '11to theory is that those in the second set canl afford to call attention to themselves, being un palatable or in some other way. safe. The common shrow, for instante, is fear less and careless, and makes a frequent squeaking as it hunts. It can afford to bo a self-advertising animal, beeauce of its strong musky scent, whliclh makes it unpalatable. A cat will never eat a shrow. Similarly, the large Indian irnsk-ahrow is monspieuous,oven at dusk, fearless in its habits,. and goers about ma king a peculiar noiseo like the jingling of moneyv. linBut it is safe in its unplons ant mnusay oloar. The commonn hedge hog is comparnatioly easy to see at night; it is asvon to catch, hkcasno it stops to roll itsoff up; it rustles among the horlb.go, and "sniffs f...

BELL-RINGING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 26 September 1912
3ELL-RItNGING EXTRAORDINARIY. The ringing of a bell is not, as a rule, a performance partieclarlly try ing to the nerves; but there is one set of hell-ringers the members of which must know no fear, for a mo ment of tremor would, in all pro bability be for them the moment of death. They are the bell-ringers of the Giralda, in Seville. When the city is to make merry on feast days, the ringers climb to the belfry, and then, by the aid of rope and steps cut in the wall of the to wer, each mount to the bell he is to ring, and stands astride the shoul ders of tile brazen monster. Then he presses the bell with his feet, holding on to the cross-piece on which the mass of metal is swung. Gradually the great hell sways to the movement of the man astride it. until it acquires a momentum that sw:ngs tile hammer, first gently, and then with increasing force, as the sweep of thie bell widens,, until thn: air is trembling from the giant blows that strike the massive sides of the monster.

"Some of us farmers got into a discusslon as to how quickly this could be done," said Mr. Gabel. "It arose over an article in a farm jour nal which stated that someone had done it in just an hour. I thought I could beat that, despite the fact that my farm was a mile and a half from the mill. "I made arrangements with the har vesters, millers and an uptown baker.

WATER IN THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 26 September 1912
WATER IN THE SOIL. Many experiments have been made upon dillerent kinds of crops and the amount of water required to produce a pound of dry matter varies great-, ly. "'Theie'tCats indicate thlat 200 lb. of water will be necessary to produce a pound of dry matter, while in other cases as high as 800 lb. or 900 lb. will be necessary. Such a variation is due to the~climatic conditions, lo cality, kind of crop, and kind of soil. In the humid regions le a water is required than in the arid country, and this fact partly explains wily a greater amount of water must be held In the soil in our irrigated dis tricts of the west. Wheat, in all probability, will require le a water, per pound of dry matter than oats, and alfalfa reqaires more than oats. If we aesume that an average crop requires 400 Il. of water to produce 1 lb. of dry matter, and in the case of altalf, which produced 4 tons per acre for the seasor, will requlire for tihe above average about 51,200 cullic feet of water, or a dept...
