HARVESTING RfCQFD. What is considered to be a harvest ing record is claimed on behalf of Mr John Whelan of Laen. Working for one day ' with a six feet cut Nicholson and Morrow harvester- the total of 152 bags of wheat were accounted for. We doubt if anything near this effort has been accomplished in any wheat grow ing centre. On Mr Allau Bord's farm at Mimip, 221 bags cf wheat were taken off with one Masscy Harris reaper-thresher. Last week the record load of wheat to date was cm-ti.'d mi to Quambatook railway station. It com prised 205 bays from Mr W. Kind's property at Quambatook West, and with the wagon weighed 19 tons 7 cwt. qt. 4 lbs. .. v saw* & s?

Bad Health. One of the most general causes of bad health is the inefficient action oV the kidneys and the liver. It is the function of the kidneys and liver to deal with certain waste poisons which are being continuously manufactured in our bodies, and, when the kidneys and liver are inactive or diseased, these waste poisons remain in the sys tem, and cause us to suffer from rheu matism, gout, neuralgia, lumbago, backache, sciatica, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, jauudice, sick-headache, general debil ity, gravel, stone ami bladder troubles. The reason that Warner's Safe Cure has proved so effective in the aibove mentioued complaints is that the me dicine heals and restores the Kidneys and liver to health and activity when the uric acid and other waste poisons are duly expelled from the body through the natural channels. Warner's Safe Cure is sold by chem ists and storekeepers, both in the orig inal (5/-) bottles and in the cheaper non-alcoholic (Concentrated) 2...

SMOKING WHILE MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 9 January 1914

SMOKING WHILE MILKING. Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. If any acci dent occurs by which, a pail-full or partly full of milk becomes dirty, do not try to remedy this by straining, but reject all this milk, and rinse the pail. We remember one day, when on a visit, seeing a milking hand smoking a pipe. Suddenly, he spoke to the cow, and the pipe fell from the man's mouth into the bucket. He made one grab into the milk-bucket, i put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking!, Then, what about the ash from a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack'the man or boy who smokes while milking.

Scaly legs are contagious (as arei most diseases of poultry), and can be cured by washing with carbolic soap i and hot water, painting legs with' kerosene or wood preserving oil oc | casionally.

GRIT A NECESSITY. A lack of this causes a slow supply o£ eggs, and if fowls have not the materials • for digesting their food, it is impossible for them to get on, for the proper mitrjment must be extract-1 ed from the food for the production j of eggs. ~ I Oyster shell grit for lime, as well as sea shell or pebbly beach grit, is best for the purpose, as it is very hard | and sharp, and a small quantity goes a long way. It., should be kept in a trough in the run for the fowls to I help themselves to. i

PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 9 January 1914

PIGS FOR BACON. Certain modifications in the meth ods of hilling and preparing pigs for bacon have been necessary in recent years to meet the demands of the consumer and curer. Among these has been the movement in favor of less fat and more lean, what is pre ferred now being a tasty, mild-flavor ed, somewhat lean bacon, which is finely streaked with fat and of firm texture. It is occasionally found in? dealing with carcases for either porli or ba con that there' exists au abnormal condition in the texture of flbre of the flesh. It is soft, yields to pres sure, is flabby, and possesses an un natural greasiness. This class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro duces inferior bacon. Observation has taught that it is mainly due to the various classes of food being used in improper proportions. Further experience has shown that this-influence is more pronounced dur ing winter. Low temperatures exert a change upon the nature of the body fat. Animals exposed to cold are prone to produce...

STATE POLICY. REDISTRIBUTION OF SEATS BILL DEFERRED. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 9 January 1914

STATE POLICY. REDISTRIBUTION OF SEATS BILL DEFERRED. The Premier unfolded the policy of the Government to a crowded meet ing at Esaendon on Monday. He said it was proposed this session to pass bills dealing with factories, charities, workers' compensation, railway con struction, unimproyed rating, the infectious diseases hospital, mines and miniDg development, country sewerage, suburban tramways, dis crimination in trade, workers' dwel lings, loan authorisation applications, borrowing powers for certain subor dinate bodies, and a number of smaller measures, apart from the present session's work. In many important respects the policy of the new Liberal Government would be similar to that of the late one. Their career would be one of hard, practi cal work. It was intended to push on with the settlement of Crown lands. Regarding the bulk handling of wheat it was intended to obtain an expert from Canada to report on the advisability, cost, and best methods. Respecting the railways the p...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 9 January 1914

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. Opinion is gaining ground that the offical estimate of the Now South Wales wheat harvest of 41,800,000 buaheld is likely to prove a substantial over-statement of the true yield. Messrs Lindley, Walker and Com pany express the opinion that it is much over-estimated, and that it would appear that this estimate has been based on the returns of the ea:ly sown crops. The north and north-west have returned hand somely, and the avprage from their yields would be well into the region of 15 to 16 busht 1>. Part of the west would also average in this vicinity, but the later sown crops in the west have not yielded so well. So far as the southern districts are concerned, a few centres have given encouraging reports, but the average yield has been disappointing, and from reports received in the past week they are strongly o{ opinion that the. returns for the state will not average more than 10 bushels. At the present it seems as though 35,000,000 bushels may be rpgarded as...

WHEAT BLEEDING AND SELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 9 January 1914

WHE^T B .EEOiNG AND SELECTION. "While on a visit to Horpkarn some time ago, Mr A. E. V. Richardson, M.A., 8»ys the " Times,'' gave a short but instructive lecture and demonstration on selection and cross-breeding of wheat. In the course of his address he said that the main work being carried on by the Department at Longerenong and elsewhere was an attempt to im prove the qua'ity of wheat, barley, oats, and other cereal crops. Eoughly, this might be done in one of two ways— first by selection, and secondly by cross breeding. The results obtained in the animal world by these methods were known to all. In the short horned cattle one man produced a noted line of beef cattle, and another, working on his lines, produced the great milk producing type. Dnring the last two or three years they had heard a great deal about the improvement of Vic torian dairy herds by milk tests and d"iry selection, and in the last issue of the Journal some remarkable re Bu'ts were given. At Sparrowvale farm it...
