DO WORKING GIRLS CHOOSE LOVE WISELY? [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 17 January 1914
DO WORKING GIRLS OHOOSE LOVE WISELY? By Laura Joan Libbey. "Mysterious love, uncertain treasure, Hast thou more pain than pleasure? Endless torments dwell about thee; Yet who would live-and live with out thee?" It has often been said that the girl who ,vorks for a living has not an equal chanco with other women in meeting her ideal lover, One very pretty girl said to meo, "It seems al most a miracle to me that threeoo-fourths of the bread-winners get husbands, Most of them have little or no oppor tunity to form the acquaintance of at tractive men. My ideal is a young man in one of the professions-a young doe tor, or lawyer. I might wait until doomsday to be introduced to such a one, "Of course," she wont on, "a girl must he too nice to flirt. The young men whom my girl friends know fall short of the mental picture enshrined in my heart of the man I could love. Time rolls on, and I must take at last, for a lover, one whom I know full well is not suited to me-or stand, the chance of l...

A FARMER'S HORSE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
A FARMER'S HORSE TALK. A practice too comlnon on farms, said a South Australian farmer recent ly, was to turn horses out in the pad. docks where there was very little feed when they are not working; for in stance, on Sundays and other off days. At such- times they should be fed in the stable, as they require rest and time to build up lost condition. A little green picking, some men said, was as good as a dose of Itedieine. They forgot the bad effect it' had on the horses' appetites. It will jut theml light off the feed that had been the stnying powers, namely, chaff and corn. Eaton-out stubble paddocks were also very bad for horses to graze on. Tlhey picked after the loose grains of wheat, and gathered up a lot of dirt, which caused stoppage of thle bowels. Ilorses should have pure drinking water. Woll water was preferfall, aid it was always clean, and usually contained a little salt. If damn water had to be used, no drainage from any yard should get into it, as it was such filth tl...

How Animals Bear Pain. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
How Animals Bear Pain, One of the most pathetio things is the manner in which the animal kingdom endures suffering. Take horses, for in stance, in battle, After the first shock of a wound they make no sound. They bear the pain with a mute, wondering cendurance, and if at. night you hear a wild groan from the battle-field it comes from their lonelin-ss. The dog will carry a broken leg for days wisttully, but uncomplainingly. lho cat, strlicken with stick or stone, or caught in someo trap fiom -which it knows its way to freedom, crawls to somo secret plaeo and hears in silence pain which we could not endure. Sheep and cattle meet the thrust of the butcher's knife without a sound,. and oven common poultry endure in tense agony without complaint. The dlove, shot unto death, flies to somen far-off bough, and as it dies the silence is unbroken save for the patter on the leaves of its own life-blood. The wounded deer speeds to some thick brake, atid in pitiful submission waits for death. T...

IMPORTANCE OF FALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
IMPORTANCE OF FALLOW. It is hardly necessary to reiterate the arguments in favor of sowing cereal crops on well-tilled fallow, especially in those districts where the seasons are cold and wet, or, on the other hand, short and dry. In the first case, the conservation of moisturoeis not import ant, but the amelioration of the soil to a condition of sweetness and friableness is. On heavy oet soils, the beneficial influence of rain and sunshino, and wind epnnot he over-estimated. Where urnder-drniicige can be supplied, so much the bettor: if this cannot be done, then surfaeo drains will often he found, to keep the accumulated winter rains from making iBonds or sodden .swamps of the low-lying ground, Worklin the soil will help to aerate it, and will have im important bearing upon results. But iii many cases drainage is essential; on the other hand, this 'provisiqi' is sol daon 'necessary in the 'drier ::'wheat growing areas, where overy 'opportun Ity may be availed, of 1b4 conserve, in t...
CROP ROTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
CROP ROTATION, Rotation of crops are maintained for threo principal purposes: (1) to main tain soil fertility, (2) to provide pro fitablo cash crops, and (3) to provide roughage and frain for live-stock, A proper balance must hb secured be tween all these, It is always esson tial that fertility bo maintained, so that this is a prime requisite in arrang ing a rotation. Live-stock farming is seldom profitable unless so01me cash crops areo grown for sale. Even as spe. cialised an industry as poultry-raislng 'is rarely as profitable wlheon carried on alone as whon it is a non-competing part of a general farm system. Cash crops are, thvroloro, important, Tlhe growing of roughage for live-stock' is almost equally essential. It is not al ways advisable to try to produce the grain required inr livo-stoch however, as on much of the Ind adapted to the raising of live-stook grain cannot be produced as cheaply as elsewhere. It may, therefore, be cheapur to i:urchlase the grain than to raise it....

SOIL FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
SOIL FERTILITY, The whole problem of the soil fer tility is inextricably woven with bac terial fermnentation. From the origin of the soil through its use by plants, and the subsequent destruction of their original condition of the products form ed, we find nearly every step accoim panied by bacterial action. The con tinual fertility of the soil is thus asso ciated with bacterial life. In the fu turo the problem of the proper treat ment of the soil for the use of agri culture will be, in a very large de gree, a problem of the proper control of bacteiin. Agriculturists must learn to stimulate the bacterial actions which are advantageous, and check those which are disadvantageous, ;f they would ensure the continual soil fer tility. Perfect cultivatiomn is one of the best means of encouraging the right kind of bacteria, moisturo and warmth being the most essential items in on couraging this increase, therefore, to cultivate the land thoroughly means to increase soil fertility.

VALUE OF THE EARTHWORM. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
VALUE OF THE EARTHWORM. The earthworm is to some extent an indication of the nature of the soil. Where the land is full of heart the worms present a full-grown and fleshy alpearance; where the soil is poor, they are small, thin and attemnuated, and somletimes of a pale and greenish color. As a rule, when the worm comes to the surface it keeps its tail within the narrow opening of its bur row, so that, possessing a keen sense of hearing, it can rotorct its body with the greater ease. The mould left in the forzm of casts oil the surface of the land has manurmal value, although it mafy spoil the appearance of an other wise well-kept lawn.

CO-OPERATION AMONG FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
CO-OPERATION AMONG FARMERS. There is overy reason why co-opera tion should be fostered by farmors, who have much to gain by the movement. To do away with trusts, it is necessary to substitute something elso in their place; and the only solution of the wholeo lroblem is the complete system of co-operation in which the profit re verts to those who create thenm. For example, in h complete co-operation of the farmers it would not matter whether they received the full market value for wheat or not; because if there were a profit made out of them of, say, £100,000, that profit would be divided among those people out of whom the profit has been made. The same could be said regarding manufac turers-the co-operation could not only be among the purichasors, but among the men who are working the factory, and the profit could be divided first among the purchasers on the amount they had purchased; and, secondly, among the persons whose labor contri buted towards the manufacture of the articlo. S...
