NOTES ON THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 29 August 1914

NOTES ON THE WAR. The great European War continues with unabated vigor, but owing to the strict censorship''which is being exer cised over tlie cables, the information is meagre. ■ Mueh of the published naws is ob viously " padded " to whet, the appe tites of readers. As a consequence statements fre quently appear one day to be contra dicted the next. . Thus it is published one day—Ger many accepts Japan's ultimatum and concedes Kip-chau ; next day—The time for Germany's acceptance of ul timatum has expired. Japan ha» de dared war, againstiGermany. ■ p The most reliable news appears; to be that concerning Russia's advance^ Tlie big Boar's onward march prom ises- to squeeze the Gjrmans badly in the near future. Hence German anxiety to defeat the western allies, if she can, ae soon a» possible. ' Most of Germany's troops are con centrated in one place with that object. In consequence of their occupation of Liege and Brussels, which was in the CBse of the latter allowed by the allies^ ...

PENSHURST COURSING CLUB. The Penshurst Coursing Club held a farewell meeting on "Weduesday last, which provided a iiiost enjoyable time for those who were fortunate enough to witness it. It had been intend ed to run an open stake as well as the Clas3 Stake, but ow ng to the bard state of the ground there was a general reluctance 01 the part of owners to risk their dogs, con sequently the big stake was so" poorly nom inated for that it had to be abandoned. There were only 10 dogs in the Class Stake, which was run on- Mr. A. Burger's paddock. Fearing a scarcity of hares such as befel the Hamilton meet last week, fhe suggestion of the secretary, iilr. J. Dallon, was adopted on this eccasion, of boxing hares for emergency. It proved a splendid one. The ' bares were captured on Tuee . day and though they were not expected to give the best results, their running was euch that if proved an agreeable surprise to everyone. With a few exceptions the dogs were given big tasks, with the result ...

BARLEY EXPERIMENTS,. During recent yeatsj^%iperimetots• -were, carried out in connection: wi'tlr the -Agrwjjiroral lnsrftufe; of" iiiosAiT .University with the 'object of .ascer taining . How and under what condi tions potash and phosphates attect tne quality of milting barley. The fol lowing results were obtained:— Tne soil responded in every ca&e to applications of a phosphatic manure; tue use of this manure led also to an ' increased utilisation of potash and ni trogen. Where medium and heavy applications of phosphates were made there was a real need for potash. Manuring with potash and phos phates in every case produced an in creased gross yield. Tne protein content was diminished by. manuring with potash and phos phates. , Independently of the yield, the dry matter contained in the grain increased almost regularly with increased appli cations of potash and: phosphates. Whether this was due to a higher de gree of maturity, of the better nour ished barley or to a larger d...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 29 August 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") There is grim irony in the fate that brings the effects of the long-threat ened war upon us simultaneously, with the prospect of the worst season ex perienced for many years. The con tinued drought has assumed a serious aspect;' over a great portion of the State. Reports indicate poor yields if not absolute failure of crops. And this under conditions that call for the maximum of production to meet de mands rendered abnormal by the Euro pean outbreak. The pig is commanding a lot of at tention of late. Since the advent of the Co-operative Bacon Curing Com panies, prices have gone up to hither to unheard of prices. A lot more attention is consequently given to this class of farm animal, and information concerning the Various breeds is wel comed. Mr James Long has much that is interesting to say about the large white pig. in the last issue of the Victorian "Journal of Agricul ture." He states that it is difficult to believe that the now famous white pi...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 29 August 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "Ambrosine.-") Some useful dress hints will per haps be acceptable to readers. ' Make up your mind first, of all to choose one prevailing color for the season, and buy your hats and gowns to correspond. My own experience is that for a smart and all-round use ful color, there is nothing to equal navy blue. Go to a good tailor, and have a perfectly plain, but prefectly cut, navy serge coat and skirt. Never mind if you have to pay rather a high price, as you will find it pay6 you best- an the end. With this, a spotted blue and White foulard shirt would look nice,- made with collar and cuffs to turn back over che coat. Then invest in a couple of really good white blouses—French lingerie or Jap anese silk are the best value—and keep these for best occasions. A smart navy straw hat, with either a pheasant's tail, or, if you prefer it, a navy feather mount, is not a very expensive item, and. with good shoes and gloves, you are turned out ready for any occasion. Keep ...
