FOR THE FARMER. MAIZE CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 8 April 1914
FOR THE FARM i MAJZE CULTURE. Attention should now be given to the onltivation of the land for the ft. ture nmaens crop. As soon as the work of putting in the wheat is completed, all land intended for maize should le ploughed up without delay. Ulive a good deep ploughing. If a subsoil plough tois rocurable it should be usOd, as a good stirring of the sub. soil will leave the land in a condition most austable for the maize crop. After the first ploughing the soil should be left in its rough stato till the end of the winter, when the froats, rain and sun will have had the offect of thoroughly naerating and sweetoning the land. It may he harrowed down and ploughed again a few days before seeod time, the second ploughing should only be light, as it would not be a good plan to turn under to any great depth the soil that has become sweet' ened, It is sometimes necessary to give a third ploughing when the land has become foul with weeds, black oats, etc., but in all cases after the irst de...

COST OF MILK PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 8 April 1914
COST OF MILK PRODUCTION, The cost of milk production is infius onced by such considerations as the following: First, the value of the food fed, Second, the caDpacity of the cow to turn food into milk. Third, tho season of the year at which milk is obtained. Fourth, the cost of the plant and the value of the labor involvedl. The difference in the coat of food may in itself make a difference in the cost of milk of more than 50 per cent, The same is true of a difference in the capacity of cows. At Cornell experi* ment station, in a test conducted sc. veral years ago, 20 cows were fed unn der like conditions, One of the cows produced milk at a cost of 1s, 10d., per 1001b, Another in the same lot pro. duced it at a cost of Ga. id.
VALUE OF LIQUID MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 8 April 1914
VALUE OF LIQUID MANURE, Very few have any idea (writes Charles Vernon) of the value of liquid manure, or the amount they are losing annually by neglecting to make pro. per use of it. When a man has toiled hard, early and late in the heat of the sun for a whole seacson, and hiý.h1bors have been rewarded with a crog Is it not a strange spectacle to s him waste or throw away a large part of it as though he placedl no value on It? Yet this spectacle may be witnessed on thousands of farms in this country, and the worst of it is, the farmer is not conscious of this waste. If he would mnake a lit.lo more effort to learn what others ait doing, if he would subscribe for more good farm papers, read them faithfully with the view of learning how to improve his methods, he would make more money and do it with loss manual labor. The time has been when what was called book-farming was scouted and ridiculed, but this time has passed, as the most prosperous farmers to-day are those who read and stud...

MtBLR3OURNa. *iL---+--- (from our own Corenponldont), MARKMD PERBONALI'IEB . Tall, spare, of gentlemanly deport. monI, with thin aquilline features, long flowing grey beard and thick mousu tacho, and faulblessly dresserd, Mr. IIH, Byron Moore, au he stando on the lawn at Flemington chatting to a vict. regal party, or it engaged ohowing round a group of distinguished visitors, is assuredly one of Melbourne'u notw bilities. The sporting world knows him as secretary of the Victoria Racing Club, And a right good secretary, too, say the non partisan members of that olub and the general racing public. The latter find in Mr. Moore a man who is easy to approach, but with whom at the same time no liberties may be taken, He does not claim to know anything of the inwardness of racing it is questionable whethtr he ever made a bet on any event on his own or any other course, All the anwe, Mr. Mnoore has proved himnself a capable adminis. trator has, in short, during his long term of c flioe, dis...

THE STATE DEBTS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 8 April 1914
THE STATE DEBTS, A SEN11nAL hope will be expressed that the efforb being made by the Common wealth Government to bring about some workable scheme for the consolidation of the State debts will be successful, This subject has been before the people of Australia for many years, When the idea of the federation of the colonies of Australia was first broached, one of the main arguments in favor of such a course was that the consolidation of the debts would enalle a largo savine to be (ffected in the interest payable on these, In some estimates this was placed so high that it was said that the whole cost of governing the Oummon wealth would be paid by it, UI course this only included the actual cost of government-the Parliament, the Governor General, and similar services -and did not embrace the antioipated outlay upon the Defence and other departments, Since then it has become clear that the credit of the Common. wealth is not appreciably better than that of the individual States, As one ...

CORRESPONDENCE. LAND TAX ARREARS. (To the Editor of the MERCURY.) [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 8 April 1914
OORRESPONDENGE, LAND TAX ARREARS, (To the Editor of the Mcuinutty,) Sio,-In refercnoo to the largely attended meeting of Ifarmers lately hold for the eon seldorat ion of the above antjact, it would appear that a quite unneocesary amount of fuse is being made over the matter. 'T1he trouble seems to have origiunleo from the tine when laudholdore were, for land tax purposee, directed to value their properties, and when meethnrs of farmeor wore held, at which rosolutiona were paeaed fixing the unimprovoedl value uf wheat growing land at a uaximum of £4 per acre, It woas only to be ext:eered that that valuation would in many instaooe bhe ex. seeded by the otliolal valuer when he made hite rounds--hence Ihq prerent sator of indignation.
