INTRINSIC VALUE OF MANURF ON THE FARM. THE USES IT SERVES MAKE IT OF VAST ECONOMIC IMPORTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 22 January 1914

[ts valuo as a fertiliser; that is, the monoy value of the plant food that it adds to the soil, may easily bo computed from a chemical analysis. But through out the country, as a general rule, itB valuo as a fertiliser requires much less consideration that its other values. ItB effect upon tho soil far transcends in valuo the value of tho plant) food it adds to tho soil. These other uses ot farm manure are of prime importance to the producing capacity of most soils '1'lioy have not been given enough con sideration,. and 03 a result, the pro duciiig capacity of theso soils has not been mado what it might easily havo been made. Nearly all soils arc seriously lacking in vegetable content. Vegetable growth uses up the vcgetablo content 'of the soil. After land has been suc cessfully cropped for a number of years tli...

A SWAMP SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 22 January 1914

A SWAMP SOIL, Some owners of swamp W>>1 ar« pusa lod by their unproductive character when first cultivated. They reason that soils have been made out ot vegetation and, therefore, should be able tot produce plants luxuriantly. The truth generally is that a raw swamp soil is in an inert condition. The air has been excluded, and acids have formed, and bacteria are not at \work. When the water lias '.bees (drawn off, tfatf exposure of the soil to Ifroet after autumn ploughing and a 'summer of thorough, tillage does much to mend matters. A few ton*, of stable manure per acre introduoe the needed bacteria. An application or lime sweetens the soil. The nitro gen in the swamp begins to gain av ailability. Usually, tliero is great doliciency in potash, and heavy ap plications pay. Phosphoric aoid also is needed. Tho first year shoukl be given to some bustling plant like maize that can help itself to raw an<l coarse food, and the tillage paves the way for a more proiitable t...

STORING OF WINTER VEGETABLES. (Minna A. Stoner, Prof, Home Economies, N.D. Agri. Col.) [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 22 January 1914

STORING OF WINTER VEGE TABLES. (.Miunu A. Stoner, Prof, liomo Econ omics, N.D. Agri. Col.) The storing of winter vegetables is economical and desirablo. In the fall enough vegetables go to waste from the average farm garden to supply the table during the entire winter. The task of storing is not difficult if one has a knowledge of the oonditions best suited for storage, and is willing to perform a small amount of labour. A dry well aired not too dark, frost proof room, cellar or sodhouso will serve the purpose. The most favour able temperature is not over 50 degrees i'ali. Celery, cabbage and sweet po .stDrKkc& adjusted on which to place the storage boxes or barrels. Tiiis avoids tUe dangers of overheating, excess mois ture, and prevents decay. AU veget ables should bo gathered before the frost, sorted, dried thoroughly before packing. For long storing, reserve those of most perfect formation and firm textured. Each root or tuber should bo placed a few inches apart in altern...

After the Blackfish. (Contributed). On Saturday last several well known sports toqk a trip to the Wer ribee below Ingliaton to give the blackfish a fly. On the way to In gliston there is a little of interest, although before reaching Mr Con. Wliop.l».K».nvft place it -etas noticed tbat 4 fir# had come ont of the railway line and burned along the road for Boma distance. Had it been on the Cither side of the line a fire of large dimensions may hare resulted. Many places along this road require re grading, and qs Mr Kelly can do this work cheaply with the grader, it would be well for Councillors to note this, and at tha proper time have the work done. The party turned is at the gates jnst before reaching Mr J. Hansou'i residence, and decided to walk from there to the river. The fivst part of the walk was comfort able, but the last portion of the jour ney was precipitous, and needed some care to avoid a fall.

THE HAND SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 22 January 1914

THE HAND SEPARATOR. The value of a hand separator de pends very largely upon the person who runs it and cares for the cream. There is no question but what the separator has its advantages, but in the hands • f a careless person it very soon becomes a detriment. Most of the sttnda d .machines are made to run easily, mid almost as smoothly as a sewing ma ohine, but how many after being used a while turn like a feed chopper, and, for noise, a thrashing machine is not in it. The tro&bie is generally vri.i able to ui'Olean conditions of the gear ing and lack of oil. Not that oil is not used, but the oil holes, and chan nels become clogged up and the ~ oil cannot reach the gearing. One of the first things a farmer should do after buying a separator is to get per fectly familiar with every part of the gearing. This is as important to un derstand as tho bowl. Milk very often gets into the gearing, and thiB always causes trouble till removed. \Vatch this, and keep the gearing ab solu...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 22 January 1914

CRICKET. A strong eleven from the Ballan Club visited Greendale on Saturday last. A light breeze tempered the rays of the sun, and made the after noon an ideal one for cricket. Green dale had first us* of the wicket, but could mako no headway against the bowlers, and were all out for 48 runs. Lewin and Kelly bowled uuchanged and captured five scalps eaph. With such a small score to face, the Bal lanites regarded the match as all over, but they reckoned without their hosts, and at one time it looked odds on the home team. The Greendale barrackers, of whom a goodly number were ladies, were keenly interested, particularly when the visiting bats raen were failing, and much hand clapping and cheering greeted each one's downfall. However, at the finish, Ballan won by 40 runs, the principal scorers being O'Hehir, Mogg and Kelly. Rowlands bore tbt brunt of the attack, and troubled most of the batsmen. Peters, Stevens, and Lidgett alio got wickets. G. Gra ham kept wickets smartly for Green d...
