THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXX. CONDITIONS OF PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 18 December 1914

-: :, THE SMASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXX. CUUNDITI'UN 01F PEACE. It was a lonely, miserable day, for Ida Duval did not appe:ar either for luncheon or dinner, and the hours S dragged by so slowly that it seemed as it bedtime would never come. There was no telegram from Hloney - coinbe Lodge, so she was ignorant of the result of the search, and every bell that rang reminded her of the friend 'who would never come again. She tried to read, but her thoughts wandered away from the book; she sat down to play, and poured out her heart in such doleful music that. she burst into ..tears and deserted the music stool. When 'ten o'clock struck, she looked at the clock and longed to go to bed, but she stayed up because she was so anxious to see her husband, and hear" his news, He might have had somd consideration for her anxiety. It was just like the generality of husbands. T'hey were all selfish, all prone to be utterly engrossed with their own pur suits, with no thought for the lonely wives they...

LIMING THE LAND. (Written specially for the "Farmer's Gazette" by J. H. Retshauge.) [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 18 December 1914

.LIMING THE LAND. (Written specially for the "Farmer's Gazette" by J. 1H. Refshauge.) Should a handtul of damp soil be squeezed in the hand, -and a few drops of hydrochloric acid be dropped on it, small gas bubbles will be seen to form where the acid fell, if the soil has a sufficiency of lime in it. It may be as sumed that the soil is deficient in lime if no effervescence takes place. Many sandy and many clayey soils exist winch have less than 1 per cent of lime m them. Such lands respond in increas ed productivity when lime is applied to them. With the exception of the Mallee and Wlmmera soils, most of the soils or Victoria require liming. As the use of lime increases the producing power of the soil, it would be a wise policy for our Government to follow in the steps of iNew Zealand by carrying lime on the railways for agricultural purposes free of cost. The railways would benefit by increased carriage on account of the heavier yields brought about through the use of lime. There i...

SUBSTITUTES FOR POTASH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 18 December 1914

SUBSTITUTES FOR POTASH. .'otash manures are required in course of time on all land where there is anything like intensive culture. In England the bulk of such manures were hitherto imported from Germany, and one result of the war has been to throw the country largely upon its own l.ml ted resources. Most soils contain a potash in some proportion, but many of them, especially those of a light texture, cannot be relied upon for a full crop, without a dressing of a pot ash manure. The question is-how is it to be obtained? In the dilema, the British Board of Agriculture has come along and (remarks the "Field") has suggested the gathering together and burning of refuse wood, weeds, and other waste material, the ashes to be conserved for application in the spring to sueh land and crops as most need potash. Those who have access to the sea, have a readier means or making good the defticiency. Seaweed is a valuable source of potash, as well as a general health-giver. Many al ready make a po...

SPRAYING FOR CODLIN MOTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 18 December 1914

SPRAYING FOR CODLIN MOTH. 'In Amerioa it a quite common in the last dose of Bordeaux or other fungl cide to include arsenate of lead at the rate of 21b to 50 gallons, but the prac tice has not found much favor in Aus tralasia. Success in keeping down Codlin depends very largely in the thoroughness of the first spraying, which is given as soon as the petals have fallen. It is not right to spray whilst the trees , ro in bloom, not only is some of the blossom spoiled there by, but the orchardist's very good friends and allies, the bees, are killed while at very useful work. A strong pressure and a coarse nozzle are requir ed at this time, in order to force the liquid past the little fringe of flower organs in the calyx of the blossoms 01 the eye of the small fruit. Several days, varying with the kind of apple, are available for this operation, after which the calyx closes, and any egg that may have been deposited inside is safe from harm. In the pear, the calyx remains open for a longe...

FEED MEANS EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 18 December 1914

FEED MEANS EGGS. There is a practice quite general on the average farm where poultry is kept, ot allowing the hens to feed themselves during the moulting stage. It has been brought out by poultry men, who make a specialty of winter eggs, that the earlier that the hens can be got to moult, the better the chances for eggs when the prices are highest. Farm hens rarely moult, early, because during the summer they are fed very little, being required to forage nearly all that they get After the harvest, the hens get a chance to pick stubble fields, and in this way get a little grain, but it is, as a general thing, not enough to keep them going. lt is a wrong idea al together to think that hens should not be fed while they are not laying. With holding the feed Is no way to got the hens started to lay. It will pay the producer to see to it that his hens lay during the cold weather. Do not skimp the hens when they are off work, Feed will do the trick if the hens are of the right strain and a...

S.A. BORDER DOWNS COUNTRY. POSSIBILITIES AT TINTINARA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 18 December 1914

S.A. BORDER; DOWNS COUNTRY. POSSIBILITIES AT .TINTINARA. - The future of a large proportion of that part of the great Border Downs country, known as the Border Downs district, South Australia, lies in the direction of sheep. Of that there is not the least possible, probable, sha iow of a doubt. When the enter- prise is managed properly, wheat grow ing. pure and simple, can be made to py. . it the Tintinara land, taken as a whole, is decidedly not a cereal pro position. Some very fine crops of both grain and hay have been raised from time to time, and during the rather ex tended process of clearing the ground of timber and rubbish which it carries cereal crops of one kind or another must be grown; but once the land has been completely freed of the the lime stone and roots it should be laid down to lucerne and other fodders, and utilis ed almost exclusively for stock-fattening purposes. The ultimate destiny of the country is fully recognised by the majority of the settlers, and their ...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 18 December 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST " (By "Rusticus.") The fillip that is to be given to wheat growing as a result of the scar city. and the special inducements that are to be held out through the exigen cies of the world wide effects of the war, centres attention upon that par ticular branch of rurai industry. 'this imparts particular interest to the re salts from the experimental wheat plots, conducted by the New South Wales Department of Agriculture ai Walla Walla. These were harvested on November 27, under the supervision of .1Mr. Ht. C. Stenning, inspector or Agriculture, and resulted as follows: 10 bushels 52 lli.; RIomen, 9 bushels 1416.; Marshall's No. 3, 9 bushels 12 lb.; Yandilla.

Make a wooden rack of strips of hard wood of such size as to fit the bottom of your boiler, and be held an inch or two above it; this to keep the bag or comb from touching the bottom of the boiler and burning. Place the comb to be rendered in hessian, or other loosely woven bags, fill the boiler nearly full of water, immerse the bags containing the comb in the water, cover them with a board upon which a heavy weight may be placed. Put the boiler upon the kitchen stove and let the water come to boiling. The wax will melt in the boiling water and come to the sur face, where it may be later taken off as a hard cake, or it may be dipped o...
