MAINTAINING SOIL FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 2 August 1912
? ?', I I- ' y .- V '? . ? MAINTAINING SOIL FERTILITY. ? It is interesting to note what is being done in other countries with regard to maintaining'the fertility of; soil.

'Greater attention lias probably been devoted to the maintenance of soil fertility in China, Korea, and Japan for centuries past than in any other part of the world. The success and efficiency of what has been done by the countries named in this direction may be esti mated by the dense populations they have maintained^ and are still maintain ...
PLOUGHING FOR DIFFERENT SOILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 2 August 1912
PLOUGHINC FOR DIFFERENT SOILS. When we take into consideration the in/iny different classes of land an ordin ary ploughman may have to encounter, and tliat the plough ; needs adjusting to suit each class of land, wo realise that the resources of the ploughman' are often taxed to tho utmost. There fore a few hints on practical plough inrr on/-l on+fi-irv Af 4-Ti f a ,''5 ua Uiio suit different classes of land may be tolerated from an experienced plough man. First, in yoking a team to the plough (if tho team is of equal pace), the chains should be of equal length; if one horse is faster than the other ;his chains should' be lengthened, and thoso of the slow one shortened, so as to keep the swingle-trees even. Second adjust the bride of tlie plough— that is' to say, 'raise or lower the bridle to suit hard or soft land, as no plough can be expected to work in every olass of land — in i the middle' - -hole , -of . thei bridle. In hard laud raise, in soft jand lower into the lower hole if...

Ladies' Coloma FASHION AND THINGS FEMININE. i iB— U ? ? By 'Mavis,' (Copyright.) THE., BRIDE. The trousseau of ^Ee modern bride may be. as elaborate as you please, but there aro many girls who aro clever enough . to make a good' show on simple patterns, and to produce charmingly pretty trousseaux for a small .outlay. For one thing, . not a few engaged . girls make up. their own underwear, and per forin all the decorative, part of it— the embroideries, ^rawn-thread work, and so on— with their own hands, so that, although' their lingerie appears to bo worth pounds, it. has only, cost shillings. White is. as always, -the favourite wear for brides, , and satin the favorite fabric and since ri'owadays the satin frock need cost no more than the cloth one. it is no longer regarded as the ex treme luxury of former times, nor need . the wedding gown of this soft, .delight- ; ..... fill fabric be set aside after the great day as too smart for other occasions, for is not the satin slip quite a...
ACTION OF SUPERPHOSPHATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 2 August 1912
ACTION OF SUPERPHOSPHATE. ? When; superphosphate is spread'; over the soil. or. applied bv drill, the phos phoric acid in it, being iiv a watersol uble condition. is dissolved when' .suffi cient rain., falls, and permeates every where through the surroundng soil, in which it is chemically precipitated in a stat« of fineness much more minuto bhan can be obtained by mechanical grinding. Of course, if the superphos phate remained in a soluble condition, it wbuld be washed away by heavy rain and lost, but the lime and other salts presont in most soils uiay bo. said . to nurse and hold it in a precipitated form until the tender little ; fibres of ... the plant rootlets come along in search .of nourishment in an available form, and. by the mild acidity of their ? feeding organisms separate it again from : the soil combinations and absorb it into their system.

OPENINC THE SILO. When opening the silo carefully re-, move the weight and seal. The latter, together with any- mouldy silage that may bo on top, should be placed ori 'Hie manure heap, for future use as humus, for' the -soil. '!'.,.! The silage required, should be daily scraned oft in lavers from tho ton and and bagged or passed down a- chute to the feed truck. Avoid, as - far as prac ticable. sinking holes in the silage; , in fact, keep ras . little of the silage expos ed to the air as possible. Remember, air is the chief ' factor in destroying silage.
