On the ether hand, six weeks is quite .sufficient for a pooler milker. I The reason for drying off cows is to give them a period of rest, so" that tii'ey can recuperate from the strain whicii the yielding of a large supply of milk has placed upon them, and also enable tlieiu to better nourish the unborn calf.

WATCHING WITH THE SPHINX. Mena Camp,   Cairo, Monday, 21.12.'14, My pen's run dry, so have to resort to pencil, which is all butt. How close it is to Christmas! We can hardly realise that it's almost on us out here, and so far from home, too. Getting a bit used to the sand now, and get over it at a fair pace, but generally have our boots, eyes and eyes chock-a block with it, especially when a wind is blowing. EGYPTIAN MONEY. We were paid in Egyptian money the other night, and are well up in the knowledge of its value. The niggers were getting at us for a start, as the coins are a bit con fusing at first, and they would ask two piastres for four oranges (or orinkis and orankis) as they call them, but now we get five for one piastre (l¼). Ten milliemes make one piastre (2½) and their 6d is 2 piastres, and 1s 0½ is 5 piastres. The millieme is a nickel coin about the sixe of 3d. A half-piastre is bigger than our 6d, but is nickel, and the piastre (nickel) is size of 1s. The...

LIFE AND NITRIFICATION OF THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 9 February 1915

LIFE AND NITRIFICATION OF THE SOIL. Thero uro two great processes going on continually in the soil which are known to be duo to the activeness of bacteria: (a) The conversion of ammo nia and other compounds containing nitrogenous fertilisers, into nitrate, the only form in which, so far as wo ltnow, plants can utilise the nitrogen; (b) the utilisation of freo nitrogon of the atmosphere by leguminous plants. Both these processes are greatly faci litated by the presence in the soil of A sufficiency of lime. The soil is not an inert mass of mate rial containing certain mineral sub stances which plants utilise. It is full of living organisms.
