AGRICULTURAL PROBLEMS. SOIL EXHAUSTION. SOIL FERTILITY. INCREASE OF YIELDS. II. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 March 1914
AGIUCU-LTU'ItAL. PROBLEMS. SOIL EXHAUSTION. ■ SOIL FERTILITY. INCREASE OF YIELDS.. By A. H. RENARD, Expert in Modern Agriculture. Author of "A.B.C. ot Hatlonal Manuring," "A.B.C. o£ Scientific Block Feeding Under Australian Conditions," Kto., lite. II. The prevention of soil exhaustion and the maintenance of soil fertility are interdependent, the one being the logical outcome of the other. But modern agricultural science goes fur ther, and alms to increase fertility in order' to secure permanent, in crease in yields of produce. This can only be achieved under the special Australian conditions of soil and cli mate by rational manuring. The time has now arrived when an in crease in the average yield of wheat per acre of the land devoted to its cultivation is absolutely essential to continued prosperity, and the in crease must be regular, not spas- , tnodic. This increase is easily pos sible, and undeniably profitable, u.. der conditions even below average. The new method tends itself ...

II. It seemed an eternity to him bo foro he saw the red glow above the funnels of the Christabel, and know that the firemen were at work. He had given the order for the yacht to sail immediately Joseph answered his ring, and soon the bruit of an imme diate departure awakened the sleep ing ship. "It was just like the Governor," the men said. The skipper, a dour Scotchman, by name Macdawell, had sailed with Hugh too -long that any caprice^ should surprise him. Meanwhile, in the saloon, the four played on unconscious of the amaz ing happening. A hissing of steam did'; bring Jack' Bowles to the quar ter deck when he was duuirnj-; but it never occurred to his obtuse intelli gence that the activity aboard was unwonted, and he reported nothing to the others. Had curiosity taken him to the cabin skylight, he would have seen Desdy and -Leila at sup per below ; but he did not see them, and voices calling him to the table, he Went without tidings. For his part, Hugh had forgotten his friends c...

Mr Fisher's Tour, Liberalism should score off the speeches which Mr Fisher, as leader of the Opposition, is delivering in the coarse of his four-thousand mile tour. These speeches show that, in spite of certain bellicose harangues;of the rank and file, official Labor has no stomach for early battle, " There must bo no double dissolution" exclaims MrFisher, and he denounces the proposed appeal to the Governor-General as a ridiculous impertinence. Mr Fisher gives his reasons for assuming that, when approached by Mi- Cook, the Governor will decline to send sena tors to the country. The two test bills which the Senate declined to pass last session, and which will be re submitted to it at a comparatively early date are, Mr Fisher con tends, too trivial , to justify a double dissolution. With Mr Hughes he tosses them contemptuously aside as having no practical bearing on any live issue, and as being...
