IMPORTANT LAND AND CLEARING SALE. At Minmindie. 1956 Freehold Acres. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

IMPORTANT LAND AND CLEARING SALE. At Minmindie. 1956 Freehold Acres. It is the irony of fate that farmers, who a few years ago scoffed and denied irrigation, are now exerting every J pressure to compel the State Rivers Department to include their lands with in water areas. The drought has been a convincing object lesson in the value of an abundant water supply. The ap plication of water to land for the pur pose of establishing the highest forms of intense culture is an expensive business. It cannot be done success fully and with reasonable hope of" a commensurate return except with ut most forethought—the calculation of means to a specific end, and the as surance that the end will justify the means. Therefore, when a land sale is announced to be held, one of the first questions a prospective buyer asks .himself is, "Is the acreage irri gable ?" or "Is the land at present under irrigation'.'" Aswillbeseen from our business columns an important freehold subdivisional land sale is an n...

LAKE MERAN SPORTS. New Year's Day is the day de voted to sports at Meran, but this year the Monday following being a public holiday it was deemed wise to have this celebrated on that day.

Wool Sales. Messrs Dalgety and Company Limited report under date January 5th:— [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

Wool Sales. . Messrs Dalgety and Company Limited report under date January 5th Business in tlic local market is extremely quiet, buyers being away in Tasmania, where sales will be held in Hobart and Launceston on the iitli and 14th inst. respectively As the catalogues submitted con tain many attractive light-con ditioned wools, and, what is more to the point, the bulk of such wools arc reported as thoroughly sound, some fairly high prices may be looked for. Though no definite information has been rcccivcd by the buyers or brokers in this centre regarding the reimposition of the embargo against the shipment of crossbred wools to ! neutral countries, there is little i doubt that restriction in some form or other is being exercised by the ! authorities at home. Although such restriction may, and probably will, have the effect of lowering the prices for superior wools, the in creasing competition of Yorkshire for good and medium descriptions, which were such a feature of the last sales ...

Feeding of Dairy Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

Feeding of Dairy Cows. The feeding of dairy cows, so as to derive the maximum yield of produce at minimum of outlay and at the same time to maintain them in perfect health, is a subject of un failing interest at the present time on account of the growing impor tance of this portion of the farmer's business. Scientific experiment has only of recent years been brought to bear on this matter, yet it is of the utmost importance to practical men who have not the means of carrying oh trials of various foods ami methods of management for themselves. There is no doubt that vast sums of money in the aggregate have been thrown away by dairy fanners by the use of expensive food or by growing of unsuitable crops for the purpose which arc not exactly suited to the object in view. But when we con sider how easily the vield is affected, not only by food, but by external conditions, there is a certain amount of excuse if such errors are made. Three general rules may be laid down in connection with ...

VERMIN DESTRUCTION. Departmental Circular. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

VERMIN DESTRUCTION. Departmental Circular. The following circular has been issued by the acting chief inspector to all inspectors under the Vermin Destruction Act . Climatic conditions very often have an important effect upon the work of rabbit destruction. While these conditions often assist us, as they have in the past year, they also often operate in an entirely opposite direction. The droughty conditions of the last spring and summer, which were most suitable for effective poisoning, followed by the copious winter rains, assisted the work immensely. Full advan tage of these conditions was taken by the department and landowners generally, with the result that with in the last year a notable diminution in the number of rabbits has taken place throughout the State. The drought, however, was not directly responsible for the death of many rabbits (if any), though it was a very useful contributing factor. In drought stricken country where stock will perish for want of water or food, r...

IIOVV TO BREAK UP A COLD. It may be n surprise to many to learn that a severe cold can be completely brokeu uu in one or two day's time. To do this, however, prompt action is necessary. The first symptom of a cold is n dry loud cough and a profuse watery discharge from the nose. When ( hamberlain's Cough Remedy is taken every two hours on the first appear ance of these symptoms it counteracts the effect of the cold and restores the system to a healthy condition within a day or two. —Sold by all stores, Boort and Quambatook. w.

The Man on the Land. Forage for Pigs. Condition of Fertilisers. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

mmmmsmmmsmm The Man on the Land. M Forage for Pigs, 1 Condition of Fortilisors. A fertiliser should lie in a condition so fine and dry that it enn he applied without hindrance hy the drill. There are still some farmers who like to see bone manure in lumps showing par;ly dissolved pieces of bone, but this is surely a mistaken idea, because such a lumpy material cannot be evenly spread over the soil, and as a consequence some plants are apt to be injured by getting too much, and others are deprived of their proper supply. The fertiliser should be uniform in quality, mid uniform in condition, so that every plant receives it proper proportion of the fertilising constituent-. The fertiliser, if iv cannot be used at once, should be stored in a dry place. We have known bags of fertiliser actually left out over night in the field, ex posed to heavy dew or rain, so that it becomes quite damp ..nd sticky, and could only be distributed by hand in a very rough manner. If a fertiliser is worth b...

Milk the Cow Dry. Quality Involved. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

Milk the Cow Dry, Quality Involved. Ail Italian scientist lias made the announcement that lie has dis covered a germ of bacillus that lias to do with forming renrct or J coagulation in milk, and that thrives in the milk left in the cow's udder' by the milker. These acid-rennet bacteria develop in the milk ducts, bringing on an inflammatory con dition of" the udder or other com plications. The particular inflam mation caused by this bacteria differs from that caused by other germs, and the change in the milk due to these organisms is also quite different from that caused by other bacteria, and cannot be detected by the ordinary methods employed. They arc detected by the fermen tation tests, which, besides re vealing the presence of this bac teria, may also serve as a guide to the cheese-maker and indicate faulty milking and abnormal con ditions of the udder.

Cleaning Milking Machines. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

Cleaning Milking Machines. It is not only importaut to keep the milking machines clean for sanitary reasons but also to provide conditions under which it will do its best work. If any of the parts are permitted to fill up. so that milk will not flow through them freely, the efficiency of the machine is impaired, and may entirely pre vent its working. Instances of this kind have been called to our attention. It is a simple process to clean a milking machine if the proper method is followed. In the first place it must ba recognised that milk dries very quickly, and when dry is difficult to remove. It is a good practice never to set away any utensil which is used in the handling of milk without first rincing it in cold water, as ccld water quickly removes the il ilk if it is not permitted to dry upon the utensil. Never use hot water for rincing purposes as this will cause a considerable portion of the milk to stick to the utensil. In clean ing the machine, the teat cups should be place...

AS IT WAS. or Reminiscences of Early Wedderbnrn. (Continued from previous issue) [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

AS IT WAS/ or Reminicences of Early Wedder burn. [By a Pioneer] (Continued from previous issue) Following the track as directed at M'Dougal's we crossed burnt creek without any trouble, meeting parties of two and three, anxiously asking the way to Jones's Creek, where a report at Daisy Hill said a party of prospectors were turning up gold in any quantity. Of course we could not tell them more than we were told at Dunolly station and wish them good luck at this last dis covered " EI Dorado". The fact that some of those we met were from Daisy Hill was rather omnious but we were consoled with the as surance that the road was not bad except at the crossing of a big creek — the Bet Bet. Sure enough the exception was more than warranted, several tracks diverging from the one followed very likely led to a better ford, but we took what seem ed the best beaten track, to find a crossing evidently disused for some time and which our conductor posit ively refused to risk going over, leaving us ...

A FALLEN SOLDIER PRIVATE W. R. EARLE [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

A FALLEN SOLDIER PRIVATE W. R. EARLE Private William Robert Earle of Wedderburn, whose photograph is herewith produced, was killed in action on Gallipoli on the morning of the 17th. of May last. He was the eldest son of Mr and Mrs Earle of Wylong, N.S.W., and was not quite 18 years of age when he entered Broadmeadows camp, but being tall and slim built he looked older. For many years prior to en- listment he resided with his grand- parents in Wedderburn, and has been engaged at farm work in the surrounding districts, being well   known to many around Korong Vale having travelled around the district with McNicols' chaffcutting plant.   During the period of the great struggle on the Aisne, when Aust- ralians knew not where they were going, or what lay before them, Pte. Earle, eager to join the colors, ob- tained permission and enlisted at Wedderburn, where he was, when on final leave, farewelled and pres- ented with a wristlet watch. He sailed with the second...

IN THE FIRING LINE. Letter from Trooper O'Brien. Trooper Dougald O'Brien, who is well-known in the Korong Vale district, writes interestingly from Anzac Cove to Mr Henry Allen, the letter bearing the date November 23. "I am writing this crouched up in my dug-out, and it is bitterly cold. We are fairly comfortable here now ; re- ceive good food and have decent dug- outs to sleep in. We get fresh bread and meat nearly every day now, be- sides other little luxuries. Since the meat and bread started there has been a great improvement in the health of the men. The flies have gone ; they were something terrible during the summer. We had to carry all our rations and water up to the trenches from the beach, about a mile and a half. We were continually digging trenches and dug-outs during the day ; then go into the firing line and watch all night, with a good chance of getting a bullet through the brain looking through the loopholes.

FARMER WARRIORS. Protecting their Interests. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 20 January 1916

FARMER WARRIORS. Protecting their Interests." Many young farmers who have gone to the front have made arrangements for carrying on their farms during their absence. In their interest the Lands Department has been approached, and has given expression to a state ment of their position, which will be read with interest by intending volun teers. Where farmers are -electors, concessions will be granted to them by the Lands Department in respect to suspension of rent payments, and ser vice at the war will be counted as resi- , dence on the land, but the areas will not be supervised by the department. In cases were deserted farms are free hold. it is stated officially that the owner, if he returns safely, will have no difficulty in making financial arrange ments to resume operations. The department, by administrative Act, give? power to selectors on naval or military service outside the State to appoint others to act for them as attorneys under power.

Smith, in Dillon street, he went to the side entrance from Vornon-street. and remained talking to Mrs A. Smith for about 20 minutes. After asking for certain stores, he went out to see if his horse was safe, and then noticed smoke and flames issuing from the drapery portion of the firm s premises. He re moved his vehicle to a side street, and raised the plarm, but in the brief space of time that he was away the fire had made remarkable headway. Mr A. Smith, who had been resting, was aroused, but all efforts to save the pro perly weie in vain. A determined effort to enter th...
