OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

[ OF MURAL INTEREST (By "Jttusticus.") There are many stories a-a to the Northern Territory and its possibili ties, and their variety is as groat as their number. The wiioU gamut in covered by these accounts-—from wild impractiable wilderness to prodigal tro pical prolilicness. For those desirous of gaming information as to tho actual prospects, it is necessary to take all the stories, aud judge them by tho qualifications and experience of tho au thors. lu this way a contribution by Mr. Allan Hood, a Victoria, who holds a position on the Government experi mental farm at Jiatohelor, is of iut-eresfc and possibly of value. He writes:— ••I thought that you might, care to kuow some of the latest concerning this farm. There have been so many adverse reports, and untrue, that _ it. gets very annoying to read them. Well, we had a good crop of eon -pea to start with. Tuis crop grew well right lroni tho time it was sown. It was planted mainly to be ploughed in as a green manure, but it was s...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. {By "Ambrosine.") A general observation of the newest st\'Ies shows that the tendency is in favour of nut-away aud roundod coats. .Nearly every new tailor-made costume is being shaped after this fashion. .Many of the coats range from 32 to 3( inches in length. The waistcoat is the natural consequence of this eut-away coat, and may, therefore, be expected in varying forms. Many of these waist coats are cut with very long ends sharply slanted, the slant running downwards in front or towards the sides. There aro also novelties in the backs of many of the new coats. Pleat ed panels have arrived, and there is the very loose effect, as if the coat were cut to hang quite away from the figure. Narrow sash ends may be styled us something extra. These are brought from either seam at the side and loosely knotted at the side of the i waist. The edges are sometimes fin ished with a broad, bold, scalloping stitch, imparting a veryypretty finish and a welcome change from the fri...

AFRICAN LAME SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

AFRICAN LAME SICKNESS. An investigation of the South Afri can disease known as hunziokle, or lame sickness, suggests that it is due to a special plant poison that is generated under abnormal conditions in grasses or other plants that ai>e normally harm less. Its development seems to bo as sociated with nnnsual weather and soil experiences, of which summer drought is impoi-tant. Through such conditions wilting would favour the formation of the poison, and this gives explanation for the common belief that the disease results from -eating wilted plants.

PREVENTION OF MILK FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

PREVENTION OF MILK FEVER. Frequent milking, but only a little at a tunc, is found one of the best pre ventives, and for this reason leaving the ba-lf with the cow (some say for 24 hoTir&j.jbut for a week is better) is •generally successful. As gross feed ers, i&dotl doers, find heavy milkers are 'morey,liable, it*'is a good plan to take these' off "green feed, and put on a spare diet of dry fodder a week before calving. About three or four days be fore :'calving a purgativo is advisable. Foe this, Soz. glauber salts, Ion. gin ger, and a little treacle, in a quart of water, will be found effective. As the acecpted ourc by means of pure an pumped into the udder seems to point to tlie fact that an anaerobic (without air) bactcria is the cause, it is advis ably on-this and other grounds to vig orously disinfect floor.. and walls of byres, rugs, utensils, etc., and flush out the oow. A milk-fever, outfit should always be kept, so that pure air can be pumped in, and tho ud...

LIVE STOCK AND SOIL FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

LIVE STOCK AND SOIL FERTILITY. The true principle of good farming is to get- as largo a return from tiio land ao possiblo, at the same time, mauitainiug if not increasing,_ the fer tility of the soil, said Mr H. V. Spngg of Morphett Yale, m tho course oi a paper read before the Conference of tho Hills brandies of the South Aus tralian Agricultural Bureau. if all the crops grown on the farm (he continued) are carted to market, and sold, ,tha farmer is selling the fer tility of his farm, and such a system must end in depletion. To maintain its fertility he must turn his farm into a factory and change the raw products into milk or meat, the by-products bo rn0- returned to the land as manure. Animals are a very important factor 111 soil making, and tho farm that is. weJJ stocked has soil makere continually at work maintaing its fertility. Rotation of crops and livestock systematically worked are absolutely essential. 1 aim ing cannot be carried on successfully by drawing on the capital ...

A MATTER OF PRECAUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

A MATTEll OF PRECAUTION . Olio day a very nervous, timid-looking woman, accompanied by:; a robust far mer man, came on. the ;.pfatiorm of a little railway station at it: remote coun try spot. For a short time she scorn ed to devote her attention to the time table, but not iinding her the satis faction she sought, she stepped up to the station-master as Jbe oajao out of the ofiice. "Will you please tell niu if the 3.15 has gone yet?" she asked, in apparent content. "Yes, about 20 minutes ago/' lie replied. "And when trill tlio d.30 come along, do you think?'5 "Why, not for some time yet, of course." "Arc there any ex presses before then?" "No," "Not one?" "Any luggage trains?" "No." "Nothing at all?" "Nothing what ever." "Are you quite sure? "Cor- ■ tainly, I am, or I -wouldn't have said ! so." "Then," said the timid woman, : turning to her husband, "I.think we'll cross the tracks, William."

PIG-RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

PIG-RAISIHG. first thing to consider is a good rim. If you have not got this, do not think of raising pigs in a sty. You can uti lise your surplus feed to better advan tage by buying up such suckers or slips as are generally for sale, and fattening them for market. Any farmer who keeps a cow or two with the necessary paddock can easily and cheaply arrange a run, by fixing wire netting, say two feet high, round his paddock. Netting ot 4-inch mesh and of thick gauge i.s best, and pig-raising will soon recoup tho outlay, and show a substantial pro fit. Having provided thfo run, the next work is to select the sow, or sows, and above all things be careful not to over do it. Many fanners can run one sow on their surpltis feed who cannot pro fitably keep two. It is not so much the keeping of the two sows, but tne rearing 01 their progeny to the best advantage. i uo not like the larger breeds, i would select a sow from a good litter, suori g~, thick set, oven thickness across -ne back, with...

THE OUTBACK WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

THE OUTBACK WOMAN. (By Para£i( in Auckland "News.") life spare heed is paid to those now numerous settlers located in what for luck of a better term is called, tho' outbacks. Lu well-populated countries wherein com paratively decent, metalled roads are formed, and by means of which the ordinary traveller derives his views of agricultural and pastoral life, thero is little to arrest attention beyond the passing recognition of a somewhat soli tary existence which is to a great ex tent compensated by a freedom from town conventionalities and by pictur esque rural surroundings that appeal to tho majority of mankind. In such locations the settlers are often to be envied, for they enjoy a life hea.lthfui in tho extreme, aro fairly well catered for by country storekeepers, receive their mails at stated periods, and ex cept during the most part of the winter solstice are enabled to comfortably tra vel and congregate at the customary district gatherings which form features of the farmer's ex...

By doing so you will infinitely extend your own talents, and you will raise your whole conception of a. life devoted to the -profession which you have ulioseu. lt_.is only by unit ing these high ideals to tho practice of life that any success under any cir cvtinstancos can be attained.

MOLLY [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

MOLLY (By ''Vaaitas.") Molly stood at the slip-rails, a slim, lithe figure of a girl, the winu blowing strands of her unruiy hair across her face. She shaded her eyes with her hand, and looked expectantly along the road. "father ought to bo here by now," she murmured. "I wonder what is keeping him " ' Molly's father had gone to Melbourne to secure the services of a much needed help. The last one, a drunken, idle fellow, whose idea of work had not co incided with that of the farmer's, had left a fortnight previously, and no looaJ aid being available, Mr. Watson de cided to try some of the city agencies. Molly was putting up the slip-raii reluctantly, before gmng back to . the house, when she noticed a cow trying to destroy her trim pittosporum hedgo. "Shoo!" she cried, clapping ner hands; The cow stopped her depreda tions, and turned two mild bovine eyes towards the girl, but, thinking probab ly that no danger lurked in that quar ter, she commenced her ravages upon the young shoots a...

DITCHING WITH DYNAMITE. AN AMERICAN PLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

DITCH IMG WiTH DYNAMITE. AN AMERICAN PLAN. A groat deal is being said nowadays about ditching with 'dynamite, says H ii. i-oiieurigi.il/, m a recent number 0"r .balm, fetock and J.Ioiue,J' an Ameri can farmer's paper. In nearly every case the cheapness of the ditches and tile ease with winch the work is accom plished are strongly emphasised. In. general, ditclung with dynamite is cheap, it is quick, and in nearly all cases it is satslactory. However, if one wishes to lay tiJo in the ditch after ?ii ls dynamite should not be used, loo much of tho dirt is blown a long distance from the ditch, and so scat tered that it.cannot be gathered up and hlled into the ditch.

Mr. Harry Hawker, the intrepi d aviator who has been giving ex hibitions of his mastery over the flying machine in different parts of Australia since he has been out, paid his long promised visit to his old friends at Caramut. Caramut has a warm place in their hearts for "Harrie." His genial dis position and many other excellent qualities combine to make him a great favorite. He is going back to the old country shortly, but his stay there he does not think will be long, perhaps two yiears, It is his intention then to come out here again and settle in Victoria. He says he intends to bring out two large machines with him and de velop the art of aviation pro fessionally on thorough business lines. His experience out here was not what he desired. He wanted more of a holiday and rest, as too close an application to aviation is nerve racking.rest beine absolutely essential.
