Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

Worms. Some Striking Symptoms. A child who is affilcted with wormswill often be in an in different state of health. It be comes peevish and irritable, and will have a strong tendency to pick the nose, and there will be a severe itching of the lower bowel. Grind ing the teeth and suddenly starting up in the sleep will also be noticed. The bowels are irregular, sometimes constipated, and at other times re laded, with bloody discharges as'in dysentery, and not infrequently the discharges will be in flakes or shreds, which might be taken for partially-digested food. The best proof of Worms is Worms, and if their presence is suspected, immediate steps should be taken to positively ebtablish the fact, and 'once estab lished, Comstock's "Dead Shot" Worm Pellets should be administered, according to directions. - WoVrms re quire a specific medicine, and there is no remedy so effective as these Pellets. They kill the Worms, destroy their eggs,. and dislodge their nests.' Comstock's "Dead' hot...

Pollution of Goulburn. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

:Polution of Goulburt. Mr. Raymond's letter, which ap peared in a late issue of the " Ex-. - press.'- pointing out that.the-above trouble was caused thiough a large -waterspout about 25 miles up the How'qua river, was read at the meeting of the council on Monday, and was commented upon by coun cillors. Cr 'M'Kenzie said if the trouble came from a small stream such as reported there would be a rise in the river, but that was not the case. There had 'practically been no rise in the river while the trouble- was on, and it lasted some weeks. He thought perhaps the solution was thatsiasludge dam had been allowed to go into the river in expectation of a big storm, but the storm did not come. A letter was also read from the State Rivers and Water Supply De :partment stating that an officer of the Dtines Department had been sent up to investigate the matter, and his report would be forwarded in due course. -The President said that he had had a conversation with Mr M'Kenzie, M.L.A., with ref...

FORAGE CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

FORAGE CROPS. The plants that may be safely relied on as forage in all parts of the colony are winter ryo for late autunLt aIIld early spring pastuje, and a mixture of winter wheat, oats, and barley for summer use. An easy way to provid; a liberal supply of winter forage for all kinds of live stock is to sow winter rye in a crop of barley. The groundl should be ploughed to a depth of at least five inohes. It should be har rowed at least three times or harrow ed once and then rolled. The barley should be sown to a depth of about two and one-half iiches. When the young crop has attained a height oi about tlhreeo inches it should b3 harrow ed lengthwise, and winter rye should then be drilled crosswise alongst it at a depth of about one inch. 1? the soil has been well packed as suggested above, the depth of the various drill ings can be easily regulated, ant the crop be benefited by the extra oultiva tion given to the ground by harrowing and cross-drilling. If the soil has not been well...

PIG-KILLING ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

PIG-KILLING'ION 'THE FARM. It is remarkable, "Pig Breeder" writes, how few farmers kill and dress the pigs they fatten. Fat pigs are taken alive to the saleyards, where two or three buyers present have already arranged prices and their respective proportions to the yarding. Some are chary of trying to slaughter for 'mar ket, not being sure of the details, shch as the temperature. Yet with a ther mometer it is an easy thing to turn out a well dressed pig. The writer has forwarded numbers of porkers to town, and-has had them purchased in the auotion rooms by some of the lead ing city butchers. The simplest manner of disabling a pig for sticking is to 'use a pea rifle. Shoot the pig in the 'centre of the forehead. When fairly hit the pig drops and may be handled easily. It is necessary to be quick in turning it on its back and sticking it. Turn the pig on its back hold the left fore leg in the left hand, plaoo the right foot on the pig's shin, insert the knife about the point of the br...

HUMUS! WHAT IS IT? ITS RELATION TO SOIL NITROGEN [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

HUMUS!-WHAT IS IT? ITS RELATION TO SOIL NITROGE.\ To many this article may seem su perfluous, but we think it seasonable to -fullyexplain its meaning and its value to plant life. Seasonable, because the majority ni our farmers have much stubble or trn 1: that can be converted into the very necessary soil constitutent. WHAT IS' HUMUS? Humus is derived from the gradual decay of any vegetable matter . that may be turned into the soil; this is hastened by its gradual incorporation with the. soil, combined with thorough working and exposure to the atmos phere. Where it is lacking the all important soil nitrogen is absent. The organic portions of our soils might be just the same in both light (easily worked) loams and our heavy olay lands. The humus or decayed form is always noticeable by the smoky or dark appearance that the soil pro sents. Sandi soil devoid of humus is very light m colour, but a good saindy loam is always recognised by its dark appearance. The same applies to clay and c...

CLIP THE UDDER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

CLIP THE UDDER, tt is not uncommon among diry cows to find the udder covered with dense growth of long air, which, a! though it may be of some protec't!a to the udder, nevertheleos, from th standpoint of sanitation and comfortto the cow during milking, is a depn ment. 'Under ordinary farm cona tions the hair is generally covered with filth, and oven in the best kept dar ies, unless clipped, will collect somt dust and filth. Furthermore, because of the location, it is highly probabl: that some hairs will find their way into the milk pail during mnilking. It order that such conditions may no: occur, these hairs should be elippel close once or twice each year, thereby preventing collection of filth, and per. mitting greater case in washing tr~ udder. It has been myv eperientc that "kiokers" are also de'eloped when breaking heifers to milk because hi these long haif s. When the milker grasps the teat during milking the surrounding hair is included, and with each ' ntream drawn the hairs...

ENSILAGE MAKING THE BEST WEED-KILLER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

'ENSILAGE MAKING THE BEST WEED-KILLER. Of all the vegetation pests that are antagonistic to profitable grain grow ing, it is almost invariably agreedtht wild oats is the very worst. "Almot is used advisedly, as there are ye. those who favour the letting of tht wild oats grow during the grass rotac tion period as freely as they will tio the feeding of tieo stock. This ee~i stuff, of course, is turnedl under aitt seeding at fallowving timue, but this. even admitting that wild oats furnish good feed, is pronounced by the moi experienced man as a fallacy.

THE WEIGHT OF A HAYSTACK. A SIMPLE METHOD OF APPROXIMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

THE WEIGHT OF A HAYSTACK. A SIMPLE METHOD OF APPROX1 MA?W;t N. In ascerailnintg the number of tons of hay in a stack, many farmers rely lplin Illern gutesswVrk, but something near the appituimat-.. weight may be obtained if the le; gith nd width be measurred, and then a tape passed from tihe bottom of the stacs? on one side to the bottom on the. other side, and this mIiasCuremti:, which is called the svetltlilrow, anId th1. a:::" w II give the number of cubic feet in the stack. Of course. if the steak has different ,iith.; or diiltrc;,t lhigh.:s, tmeasure ments will have to be taken in several places, the average of these being ob tained by adding them together and di viding by the number of measuiements made. The number of cubic feet of hay per ton varies considerably with the length of time that it has been stacked. With newly stacked hay it will take about 500 cubic feet to equal a ton, and if it has been staoked for two or three months, from 350 to 400 feet. After tlfe number of...

CROSS-BREEDING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

CROSS-BREEDING HORSES. the New South Wales Stock Depirt ment makes in its last annual report a vigorous attack on the system so pre valent of cross-breeding horses. It points out that breeders who do that, are not content to confine their work *to the animais they keep about their own farms, but they send representa tivos of these .crosses to the saleyards and the shows as studs. The result is a collection of ugly brutes; with fow good points and no merits worth both ering about. The report deprecates the practice of erossing light and heavy horses of various breeds in order to ge: good hacks. The hack might be righi enough in some cases, but when the males are kept as stallion~s the evil is perpetuated. This is sound doctrine. I mtcannot be gainsaid. Every au thority in the world who is worth lis toning to eondemns it unflinchingly. Yet in New South Wales, from whence this sensible report emanates, there is the spectacle of two stud farms belong ing to the Government breeding cross...

POULTRY FEEDING—VARIOUS METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

POULTRY FEEDING-VARIOUS METHODS. ''The ?uestion of fecding is on all fours with that of housing; there are many different methods and systemss, :ll of which have their ardent sup porters and opponents. It reminds in of the proverb--"One man's meat is another man's poison." As in the ,matter of housing, it is impossible for a hard and fast rule to be laid down for i system of feeding which shall be equally suitable for all places and climates. The disthsuitable for a per .-on living in, say, Fiji, would not be the most suitable for some one in the Antarctic regions, and the same reasoning applies to our feaothered friends. Of course, the same diet nwould possibly sustain life in both the geographical extremes just mentioned, but in treatiung of the feeding of fowls we do lnot merely want to feed them in order'to keep them alive, but so that the best return in the shape-of eggs mlay lio had from thenm. Good housing and good feeding will always pay better than indifferent housing and i...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") There were some matters of general interest dealt with by the Chamber of Agriculture at the last quarterly meeting. It was reported that, the attempt to hold a conference of the States on the question of the bulk handlinl of wheat had not met with success, owing, to tile fact that organ sations in other States .did not think that any good purpose would be served bI the conference. The chairman (Mr. McLellan) said that bulk handling would come in New South Wales in time, indeed it would be adopted by all States in the fulness of. time. It was a big matter, and the Govern ments must proceed. carefully. The chamber expressed itself as opposed to an increased duty on superphosphates, which must raise the price. No legis lation should be passed which would di minish the production. Thechamber weas also opposed to any further duty on sheepsls exported from the Com olonwealth.,. Two delegates were ap pointed to give evidence, if the need irosc, before the...
