POTASH IN SEAWEED. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
POTASH IX SKA WEED. The advance in the :price of German potash salts is directing the-attention-of farmers to other possible Sources;'^al though there is 110,other source -that can take the place of the supplies from Ger many. In a note on the availablejjotash in seaweed the "Chemical .Trade Jour nal" points out. that the average per centage . of potash in -dried seaweed is said to be' about 3 per cent;, so- that a ton would contain^about GOlb. of1 potash, or more than is contained in ahundred weight of muriate of potash. -.For cen turies;the farmers situated near eerta'n coasts' have taken advantage .of this cheap source of fertilising material, but in other parts it is wasted; Just because it is so plentiful at times it is apt to lie. neglected. Samples .differ widely, but the average may be saIcl to" be at least equal in fertilising value to farmyard manure. According- to an-article by Dr Russell,' in the Journal of the Board of Agricul ture, the fertilising materials-present in ...
THE DAIRY. BUTTER NOT GATHERING. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
THE DAIRY. BUTTER NOT GATHERING. Frequent inquiries are received re garding the1 trouble experienced from butter not gathering. The difficulty is pronounced in'certain weathers. The trouble may generally be ascribed to unripe cream or cream that has become too sour. Ripening of cream is per formed by the lactic acid ferment. In plainer terms, it is probably correct to say that it has not properly soured. During the winter cream may remain in a jar in a cool place for several days, and even for more than a week without becoming ripe enough to churn in the usual length of time. For several hours before churning the cream should be 5-et near the stove, so thrt it will become warm enough for the proper fermenta to make it ripe. If this fails to ripen the cream it is then necessary to place a starter in the cream. By starter is meant a little sour-milk, which lias soured in a clean vessel and in a room where there are no objection able odors or filth of any kind, 110 mat ter how small. S...
SAPPING THE SOIL. ACTION OF WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
SAPPING TIIE^OHi. " ACTION.OP WEEDS. .. Most of us do not: realise-the extent of injury to the soil and the cultivated crops done by.''weeds. The Ontario station (America) for- a number of years has been, experimenting to learn the exact effect of ..weeds' on the soil. It has been found that the amount of: water which is taken up by weeds and evaporation from the surface -of the ? leaves is very great. For instance, an average mustard plant pumps: from tho soil about fourteen ounces, or seven-tenths of a pint, per day, and a' sunflower thirty-threo '.ounces.. The. transpiration is generally in proportion to the surface of the leaf, ..but; thin leaves transpire, or throw/* off water, more freely than fleshy ones. * Conse quently weeds having .a large leaf sur face draw from the sol) .and give off through the leaves,^; large.;amount jof water and 'ther6by.::rob' thc'./surrouncf ing cultivated plants, i Many botanists consider this/waste: of, moisture the most serious injury dqne by' w...
BEEKEEPER. STEAM-HEATED UN CAPPING KNIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
STEAM-IIEATED UN CAPPING KNIVES. One of the new things o' this honey season (says an American exchange) is the steam-heated uncapping knife. So far we have not seen this knile in use, except in a very small way on dry combs, and for trimming these it cer tainly is far before the ordinary Bing ham honey knife. The impression we have, however, from what we have seen is that it will be a success, and that it will prove a very great help to the ex tracted honey producer. The knife ap pears very much like the Bingham, only the blade is hollow, and attached to the handle end of the blade is a rubber tube, which conducts the steam from an ordinary kettle. This kettle is made so as to keep the steam from espaping, and 'is lcept boiling on a bluo-flame lamp. Mr O. B. Metcalfe, of Mesilla Park, New Mexico, writing to Septem ber 15 Gleanings in Bee Culture, says- - "We now endorse the s.'eam-heattd un capping knife, but we could not use it for fast work until we got to work and made a regular ...

THE REJECTED ORACLE. I NEW TIIKOLOGY CUITtCISED. By G. K. CHliSTKRTOM. Some time ago aT paper called the "Christian Commonwealth" (wliich I believe to be the organ of Mr R. J. Campbell) honored me with a paragraph to the effect (hat while I whs in sonic; ways "orthodox," I was was also, for tunately, "in revolt." In the New Theo logy -(it seems) these two things are felt as opposite. Well, I can solve the prob lem simply enough, if. any of my critics wish it solved. I have been in revolt since my childhood against a certain crumbling and conventional thing; the nearest name for it is the New Theo logy; I was brought up in the New Theology; and so were most of my friends. It was the great established convention of the later Victorians Queen Victoria believed in the New Theology. Ixird Tennyson, Poet Laure ate, believed in the New Theology; that is why he turned up once with a crowd of other Backwoodsmen to prevent us from paying our debt to Ireland..
