Farmyard Manure and Fertility. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 December 1907
Farmyard Manure and Fertility. During the recent European Interna tional Agricultural Congress, Professor Stoklosa read an interesting paper on the subject of Farm Manure and Fer tility. He reported the results of a large number of experiments made by him with the special object of ascer taining the important part played by bacteria Jn farm-yard manure. He con «ldered that the application of 40 tons manure, calculated as dry substance, v was equivalent to inoculating the soil with about half a ton of bacteria.

THE CHURCH CONGRESS. ITS PRESIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 December 1907
j THE CHURCH CONGRESS. :: rrs puesident. lilke coa-llver oil anrl . cavSnre an 'Anglican bishop is an acquired taste. Sartorial blots upon the face of nature, they start upon their arduous career rheavUy handicapped. Mr Goorge Du : Maurler once told me that his favorite 'studies for 'Punch' were bishops and I footmen, because each were possessed cf shapely calves. To many people who possess a wide knowledge of them their chief attribtite's are bad tempers, suarp tongues, and unrivalled capacity foe hard work and milk puddings, aud tlielr lfves are spent In the constant pursuit tit trio mllrl nnrl wlrv rnrnte. Nevertheless, when all Is said and done, an Anglican bishop is neither to be lightly set aside nor ruthlessly swept away, aud as a rule their devotion to the Establishment is only equalled by their untiring energy and self-sacrifice. Rut there are bishops and bishops, and Dr. Sheepshanks, who presides at the congress which opens to-day In Great Yarmbouth, is, perhaps, though bu...

ROOSEVELT'S IDEAS. DOES HE WANT WAR? JAPAN AND AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 December 1907
ROOSEVELT'S IDEAS. DOES HE WANT WAR? JAPAN AND AMERICA. The correspondent of the 'Dally Mall' wrote from New Tork on SOth Septem ber:— The friendly reception ocoorded In Japan to Mi TaCt, Secretary for War, Instead of reassuring the American press, has filled It afresh with sinister forebodings of belligerent complications. iBver since the Administration resolved to despatch the fleet to the Paclnc, writers, both in newspapers and In ma 5-uiliit«| J ISA T v. p« uviimiii-.u ilia b uuuiivi ui later e fight between America and Japan for the mastery of the Pacific 1b Inevi table. Repeated affirmations to the contrary -by Viscount Aokl, the Japanese Ambas sador at Washington, and eminent mem bers of the Cabinet tailed to quiet these alarums, which have been sounded with redoubled vigor the moment that any statesman raised his voice in depreca tion of a Jingo campaign. Thus Mr Taft's declaration to the Ja panese thathe is net only Minister of 'War but also minister of peace evokes an extr...

THE DAIRY BULL. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 December 1907
THE DAISY BDIJL ^/The.selejsBpn of: ,a^ dairy bull \Js.» must have -^ ipkers^f-^:^^o^^!toj«ro*#-pie' herd. 'The 'trouble is that jw cannot teU what kind of daughters a bull 1» going to'prodiice till he has produced a number, and they have given milk tor a number of years. The' heifer in her first milking period does not show what is in her. The dairy bull can be selected Intel ligently only If one knows something of the ancestry from a mllk-produclng standpoint The great trouble about purchasing such a bull is the lack ot re cords of performances of the female re latives of the average bull. The dairy herds of the country have not received as much attention as have the beef herds as to keeping records of perform ances. The result is that If a man goes out to buy a bull he has to take him either on his conformation or on the tradition of the performance of his dam. Yet there is no doubt that we have In the midst of us bulls with great power to produce cows ot large milk-making capaci...

BRACE FOR CORNER FENCE POST. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 December 1907
BRACE FOR CORNER FENCE POST. Set the corner post Into the ground 1% yard and the second post one yard. They must be thoroughly pounded,, be ing careful that this is done espeolally well at the bottom of the hole, because the life of your fence depends to a great extent on this. The posts should be about i feet apart and stayed at the top between the first and second wires with a piece of wood; D, the points of which at either end ire let into the posts about 1 inch. Pass a double galvanised wire through a lice bored in the top oC B, to the hardwood log C, which is burled a yard beneath the surface. Or a Dutchman's anchor might be used, bringing one point above the ground to which the ends of tl-e wire may be fastened. -Any piece of hardwood would do for this. After the top wire of the fence is on, beford it is drawn up, twist the bracing wires tight and see that there !s an equal strain on both ends of the wire.— ??'Prairie Farmer.'
