THE USE OF FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 26 July 1912
THE USE OF FERTILISERS. It is a truism to -say that fertilisers should be bought and used with dis cretion ; of course they should, but it is well to keep distinctly in mind that they should be purchased solely for the amount of nitrogen, phosphoric acid, and potash contained in them, assum ing alwa3rs that tho ingredients are de rived from a good source, because there are some substances, such' as leather, for instance, in which the nitrogen has no fertilising value, and thero arc others in* which tho ' nitrogen, being partly inert, has not so much value as ?in good guano, nitrate* of soda, and such high-class articles. The require ment of the crop and soil should be carefully estimated before th« purchase of the requisite supply of fertilisers. It is a pity that chemical analysis of tho soil does not throw any definite light on the soil requirements, because it does not show with any exactitude what proportion of the .ingredients in the soil are available'; analysis can tell us wh...
BEEF AND DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 26 July 1912
BEEF AND DAIRYING. On the other hand, the. grazier finds it- an expensive business breeding ?solely for beef, as it necessitates keep ing a large herd of breeding ,cows in. order to get enough stores for his own requirements. If the right kind of animal was bred that would serve two purposes the grazier, would , have no diculty in obtaining . useful steers that would turn out good weights at three year-old, and the dairyman could re plenish his herd by taking first pick of the heifer calves. It we mention the dual-purpose cow to the ordinarj' dairyman, he will argue that the dual pxirpose cow is an 'unprofitable, useless animal from his (the dairyman's) point of view, and under tho present sys tem he is doubtless right, , -but I feel convinced, that on many ' farms, es pecially those situated a long distance from a creamery, if the right animal was chosen, and the two worked into each ather's hands, there would on tho whole be better returns.
DIFFICULTY IN OBTAINING STORES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 26 July 1912
DIFFICULTY IN OBTAINING STORES. The chief difficulty in_ turniping oat tle is in procuring suitable stores in sufficient quantitieSj and until the dairyman and the grazier work a little 'more into- each others hands, the samo difficulty will continue, aud I am ' afraid that beef -raising will not make much headway. The dairyman on the one hand breeds solely for milk and butter production, and cares little what be comes of his surplus calves ; as a mat ter of fact, they are of little use to be kept for stores, and are usually knock ed on the head. This seems a sinful waste and one that should if possible bo avoided. : Of course, on the smaller dairy farms,, there is not^sufficient room for the raising of. boef, ' but if the calves were of the right ? stamp thoy' could in most cases . bo raised to a certain age, say six months, at a. pro fit, then they could.be handed over to the butcher or the grazier, and he turn would get his profit, and the business would suit all parties con cern...

TWO BLOUSES WITH FRONT FASTENINGS. For wearing with tailor-mades, -tha . simple shirt of washing material, white1 or cream-coloured, has. no rival.

Ladies' Column. FASHION AND THINGS CEMININE. (Copyright) A STYLISH OUTFIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 26 July 1912
[?] FASHION AND THINGS s£EM!M INS. (By Ida Meller.) (Copyriiybl.! , A STYLISH OUTFIT. The outfit is a fascinating topic that is being discussed just- now in many quarters, for it is a rule with a largo number of women to don a new frock ? A pretty blouse is almost certain to. be among the new attiro prepared, for the blouse and skirt dress still holds its own even against tho rivalry of tho popular princess frock. This latter ac .coimts well for itself in black and white striped voile, and also ^in navy and white, trimmed at the neck, sleeves and down the left front of bod ice and skirt with a two-inch' 'baud- of navy blue cloth, the waist having a narrow belt of navy blue patent leath er. One of tho smartest of the new tailor fashions .is the short coat,, tho fronts of which cross one another at the waist and are fastened with a couple of large buttons. The corners aro cut off to a curve. Tho coat is cut very low at the neck, and is usually furnished with a flat collar, of the roll...
ODOURS AND MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 26 July 1912
ODOURS AND MILK. As an instance of tho influence that strong, unpleasant odours can have on milk even before being drawn from the cow. the following case is quoted: — 'A herd of milch cows were put in a field, in one part of which a calf had been buried, but not sufficiently deep. Thus the cows inspired the air infect ed with the miasma of nutrof action. The milk of the cows was found to be spoilt — not only so. but curious as it mnv seem, -the contagion seemed - in pass in- some , way to the -milk of sotne other cow.« ? that- ^ we re in c/intact- with them in the milkins-shed. Other facts showing tlia senaitivehoss cif milk to emanations maw also be eited. Thus, if a bowel of milk happen to' be loft near n ^vessel or bottle containing a preparation : of tar. the milk will- -ab- sorb the odour, and it is said .that people should never drink milk thai, has been standing in the room of any one suffering from tuberculosis, as the milk absorbs the microbes.

LIFE'S LESSON. The, ..aftermath of sorrow^ I reap it, yea or nay ; 1\lie bitter, bitter harvest I must gather day by day: Though heart and flesh may fail me I cannot turn away I must thresh it till its value Fanned and winnowed, shall appear; Then, must eat the bread of sorrow, Seasoned with the falling tear. Yea, must wait, while heart-strings 'quiver, ; ' '? Till its ministry is clear. When I rise to deeper knowledge Of my brother's grief and woe, And my heart pours out its treasuro, Love and sympathy o'erflow. Life takes on a grander meaning^ Forth to service then I go.
Poetry. THE TITANIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 26 July 1912
Poetry. THE TITANIC We saw her stn : -fc a thing of state, The whole wide seas held not her mate, A floating city, crowned and keeled ,/ To plough the fruitful ocean field, We cried her hail, we gave her cheer. We lent her thoso wo counted . dear. We said 'God speed' but not 'good- bye,' Death seemed so far with hope so high, Men spoke with wonder* at the show Of spacious luxury below. And while their praiso engaged thoir throats, None asked or- doubted of the boats. In majesty she took the tide Dwarfing the great ships at her side, Ten thousand laughed a light faro well . °: When boomed her great departure bell. An Vulcan boasted to the sun Of this great thing that he had done, Queen-like she sped her sovereign way, Her brilliance turning, night to day, No worded fear,, no hinted dread Of dangers lurking low ahead. Flashing back news through the sub lime New marvel from .the womb of time. Doom at the midnight hour apace Swiffc hurried to tlio trysting-place, Tha frozen terror of th...

Practical - ORIGINAL ARTICLES. (By F.S.C.) Specially written for this column All Rlgh.'a Reserved. LIGHT OR HEAVY LAND? Although heavy land on the whole gives better grazing, and is bcttoi adapted to raising and fattening cat tle,' yet in' feeding turnips the case is different. Apart from fattening pur poses, which, of course, is the main point and we1 must give it first con sideration: there: are other advantages to be obtained in connection with feed ing heavy-^itock oh the' lighter land. irirst, land 'that is inclined to be . hol low is improved by the heavy trampling its gets while being fed; secondly, if the land is infested with grass grubs the heavy ' trampling helps ? to keep them in check, and a great number are killed by the hoofs of the animals, es pecially those near the surface ; third ly, turnip land of this character that has been fed off by cattle usually gives a higher yield of oats or any other cereal per acre than if fed off entirely by sheep. The chief reason for...

FLIES AND PICTCHER PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 26 July 1912
FLIES AND PICTCHER PLANTS. Among the most interesting -'-of in sect eating plants are the nepenthes, or pitcher-plants...' In. this order; th: eridjt. of tho leaves are -modified into vessels containing fluid which has the power of dissolving animal matter. Insects, are attracted by certain, sweet secretions, and-, .entering:- tlio. pitchers are drowned, and afterwai-ds digested. Iii many of the pitchers there aro con trivances- for rendering tho ascent out of the pitcher difficult, or even impos sible. By digestion of the insects cap tured in the pitchers the plant obtains nitrogenous matter. The liquid con tained in them has been shown to con tain two ferments, one alagous to pep sin. and tho other to ptyalin, the fer ment of saliva. Into this death trap numerous flies enter and form nitro genbus.'food for tlfe 'plant. At the same timo it lias been shown that', a number of insects not only enter- tho pitcher with impunity, but- actually, live and obtain thoir food there. Re search...
