BLUNDERED BADLY. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 4 September 1908

BLUNDERED BADLY. "Rudyard -Kipling, when ne dined | with me," said a literary 'Chicagoan, i '?told me about Simla. j <4It seems that Simla is up io the | mountains-the hills, as they say in India-and the ladies go there in the .hot weather to escape the heat of the low country. "Well, Kipling said that one lovely cool morning at 'Simla, he was pre sented to a 'grass widow.' They tall* those ladies 'grass widows' whose husbands arc detained by work in the hot cities of the plains. "She was awfully pretty and charm ing, and as they talked together in the pleasant coolness, Kipling said: " 'I suppose you can't help think ing of your poor husband, grilling down below?'" "The lady gave him a strange look, and he learnt afterwards that she was a real widow."

A SLEEPING MONARCH. -New evidence that William IV. ful filled the saying: ''Once a sailor, al ways a sailor," is found in Leaves >from the Journal of Sir ;Georgc Smart.

GENERAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 4 September 1908

GENERAL KOTES. Letting a cow become poor is a loss that no amount of atter-caro and food can replace. The best situations for lucerne grow ing without irrigation are low-lying lands with a good depth of soil. It has long been proved by the most exhaustive tests that plump graded seeds give far the best results. One thing that practically all author* ities agree on is that lime for soil should he finely ground. It should be uniformly spread, and should bo well Incorporated - with the soil by harrowing before rain. Experts in America declare that tho success of wheat-growing ,in light rain fall country is as much due to the im provements in tho wheat itself , as to the improvement in the methods of cul-. tlvation. A recent English paper states that the ruling prices for horses in the old country are as follow:-Carriage horses, according to quality, from L60 to L70, with L100 for the very best; hunt ers, from L60 t) L150. accordlngto qual ity; cart horses, L35 to L<70; and v...

FARM AMD FIELD. Tho Mannro Heap. The manure, or compost heap Is a val uable adjunct to tho farm. It is to bo regretted that It is not more generally attended to. A heap or pit can he easily made. It Is of special .valuo in that it utilises all sorts of vegetable and ani mal refuso, which would otherwise bo wasted, and converts It Into a valuable manure, rich in vegetable- matter and eminently suited for soils low in humus or subject to droughty.conditions. The principle of the compost heap Is the fer mentation of easly decomposed vegeta ble material in the presence of earth and lime. It is not only substances like peat and straw, which form the usual basis of compost heaps, that are thus decom posable, but almost every kind of or ganic substance, both of vegetable and animal origin, can be thus composted. Dead leaves, bush scrapings, , sawdust, woods, tops and stalks of vegetables, as well as bone and animal refuse, can be treated in this manner. In tho case of animal refuse, the op...

A LION WITH A GLASS EYE. Exciting Operation in a Circus. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 4 September 1908

A LION WITH A GLASS EYE. Exciting Operation in a Circus. A strange and unrehearsed scene took place in the jungle of Bostock's Circus at Earl's court on Saturday, when an attempt was made to equip one of the big forest lions with a glass eye. The necessity for this arose out of a fight which, took place a row weeks ago between "Nero" and "Bru tus," who had a serious quarrel over a young lioness. "Nero" was severe ly lacerated, and lost an eye. The strength and energies of nine ?merit armed with ropes and chains and prongs, were required to pre pare the animal for the operation. First of 'all a strong chain was hit died round his neck, and lie was haul ed close up against the bars of his cage. Six men .held him ill this posi tion while three others' cleverly pass ed ropes - 'round the fore and hind legs. For a long time the animal fiercely resisted, 'but was eventually thrown to the,floor of 1iis cage and strongly secured ill the position re-: quired for the operation. Morphia was th...

THE POULTRY YARD. LINE BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 4 September 1908

THE POULTRY YARD. I<INE BREEDING. ScTontlfic breeding (says tho "Orango Judd Farmer") Is deserving of study by anyone Interested in the utility side of poultry. No farmer can afford to Ig nore tho profit to bo derived from tho proper handling of even a small flock. Common hens are well enough in their way, and by scientific breeding might in time bo developed .into heavy laying strains, but practical people are moro . interested in what has already been ac complished along such lines. They want stock that will produce tho most eggs and meat at tho minimum cost of feed. Certain strains of Leg horns will produce, moro eggs than any other breed known, bccausc for many years they have been systematically bred for great cgg-ylelders. Under cer tain conditions like will produce like. A pullet from a strain of great layers should bo a great layer; if bred to a --male descended from a strain of great layers, tho females of this progeny' ! should bo greater layers.
