FARM JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 2 May 1914

FARM JOTTINGS. The "discipline or the farm" is the asset of the larin hoy that marks him . through later life. The. endless round i of planting and harvesting, the dnily .care of animals, the regular toil of which there is no cessation, to him so often .a dull routine, form altogether an inestimable training in systematic hab its and thoughts that accounts for his superior achievement in the industries, commerce, and Btateinanslilp in later life. . Tlio real opportunity for' satisfac tory living in farming comes not so much from the nature of the work as from the fact that the farm is a busi ness anilu home, intricately interwo ven. Life and work'united, which is £lie natural thing. It iB much easier to maintain'soil, in a satisfactory condition of efficiency by crop rotation and the application ol artificial manures than to restore it. after it has once been impoverished by the loss of fertilising constituents.

TO GET GOOD POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 2 May 1914

TO GET GOOD POTATOES. A piece ot old pasture is Hue soil for potatoes. The better the turf/ the better the crop. A clover sod is about the best. Put a good team oil the plough and set the share deep down. Potatoas need a loose, deep-set bed. It is a leg-weary business to tramp back and forth across ploughed ground all day; and yet this is the price of good potatoes. Take your timo to it, and bo thorough. You will save time in the long run. The more harrowing the less cultivating. . Get the seed well down. It may not come lip so soon, hut when it docs come it will shoot ahead fast. A four inch covering is about right.

LACK OF SYSTEM ON THE FARM. When we stop and look around, wo are not surprised that tltoro aro so many farmers who aro • discontented, who have spent so many unprofitable years.

FARM IMPLEMENTS. How to Run a Reaper. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 2 May 1914

FARM IMPLEMENTS. How to Run a Reaper. With the modern binder, and in n moderately even crop, thero should bG practically no waste. Much un necessary wasto is occasioned by not giving the machine the right amount of tilt. Many binder exports argue that the machine should bo.run auite level—that is to say, the lcnlto bar should not be tilted in any way, but the whole machine should be horizon tal, their argument being that the bear ings will run more easily owing chiefly to tlielr parts getting more perfectly lubricated. Now, while it must bo ndmitted: that thero is a certain amount of reason in this, it neverthe less cannot bo followed to the letter. The practical driver knows from ex perience that to run the binder abso lutely level means a bad-slmpcd sheaf with an enormous amount of waste, which is greatly increased if thero is a slight liead breeze, or i£ the horses should get on a little oxtra pace. -

A CHURCH OPENING. The forma! opening and dedication of the new Congregational Church, Martin street, Northeote, took nlace last Satur day afternoon, the weatner being ideal. The ceremony was witnessed by a large crowd. The assemblage bore eloquent testimony to the necessity of a more up to-date structure than the old weather board building, erected at Dr. Bevan's cost twenty years ago.

Pratt, secretary of the Congrega tional Building Association, addressed the assemblage from the door-step, after which he opened the church doors and declared the church available for divine worship.

But let me say here how very delighted we were after returning to the steamer in the West to receive a telegram from North cote, also one from Preston. Any lurk ing misgivings we may have had were entirely removed by the generous assur ances contained in these last messages, and we left Australian shores in a joy ous frame of mind, satisfied that every thing would go. well in our absence.
