SHEEP ON THE FARM ITS IMPORTANT PLACE. CARRYING CAPACITY. ROSEWORTHY RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
ITS 'IMPORTANT PLACE. CARRYING CAPACITY. ROSEJWORCHY RESUI/FS. By "YARRAN." The sheep-wheat combination enables the Victorian landowner to realise, al beit distantly, the ideal of European and American agriculturists who breed or fatten animals upon crops and gram raised on the farm. Just what place the sheep has on a well managed Aus tralian farm has been clearly demon strated by Professor Perkins, the prin cipal at the Roseworthy Agricultural College, in South Australia:. In an ad dress delivered in Adelaide some time ago he gave his audience, all of whom were farmers, the benefits of figures, accurately compiled, relating to the College flock. The record covers a period of seven years, from to 1912, and may, therefore, be taken as representing average conditions. -7. average annual rainfall at Rosewoi thy during the period was 18.29 inches, in cluding three dry years, 15.05 inches in 1907; 13.69 inches in 1911; and 14.97 in ches in 1912. An inspection of the land provides convinc...
RABBIT DESTRUCTION THE POISON CART. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
RABBIT DESTRUCTION THE POISON CART. With the disappearance of green feea in the grass country the poison carx onoe again comes into more or les general use for the destruction of bits. So long as landholders can get rid of the rabbits, few of _ them ever wonder whether systematic poisoning, which means the distributing of poi soned pollard, and so on, is not in the end responsible for more harm than good. The sacrifice of birdlife mugt have been truly appalling since the poison cart was first brought into vogue. It is a well-known fact (writes an Adelaide paper) that birds have been swept away in thousands, and it seema certain that both the blowfly and grasshopper pests have been consider ably augmented by tha .scarcity of bird life. If poisoning m&de a clean sweep of the rabbits something could be said in its favor, but it does not. Some landowners speak of the poison cart as being the greatest curse ever introduced into Australia. Since it was invented the methods of intr...

SHOOTING CASES DOUBLE FATALITY TEMPORARY INSANITY FOUND [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
SHOOTING CASES DOUBLE FATALITY TEMPORARY INSANITY FOUND I At an inquest in Sydney on Walter [Houston Hardy, 49, director of Hardy Brothers Limited, jewellers, ( and on his son, Alan Hardy, 21, Mr H. Hawkins, the Coroner, found that the former, while temporarily insane, shot his son and then shot himself. The widow and mother described the j finding of the bodies in her son's bed- j room at her residence at Double Bay on January 12, and said that her j husband was overworked during the j Christmas week. He was a very hard worker, and he idolised his son. Other evidence was to the effect that Hardy, senior, broke down in health a year ago, and took a trip abroad, but worked harder than ever in Sydney lately. He worried a great deal over trifles unnecessarily, as he . had ample means. Dr. Chisholm Ross, brain expert, expressed the opinion that Hardy senior was not in his right mind at the time of the shooting. . Life was a bur den to him, and, being so wrapped up in his son, he could n...

Justices to the number of about 50 crowded the Bench, the late-comers be ing compelled to stand. In the body of the court- were Ministers of the Crown, leading Government officials, and former police magistrates. Punctually at 10 o'clock the Lord Mayor, in the robe and chain of office, took the chair. In asking the Lord Mayor to declare the court open, Mr D. Mackinnon, At torney-General, drew an interesting comparison between police courts of the past and the present palatial building. The first police court in Melbourne was situated in Little Collins street, be tween King and Spencer streets. It was built of wattle boughs, and was 12feet square. The Western Market was the site of the next police court, which vanished before the exuberance of sundry youths, who completely wrecked it. Next the court was in Little...

SPINELESS CACTUS PLANTS SEIZED BY CUSTOMS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
SPINELESS CACTUS PLANTS SEIZED BY CUSTOMS Customs officers, accompanied by a police officer, seized tiie consignment of spineless cactus plants brought to Aus tralia a few weeks ago by a land seeker from California. After interviewing the owner of the cactus at Bamawm, where he is word ing, the patty retv\rsie& to Rochester, and took possession of the plants which had been propagated in tins, and had made fine growth. It seems that some mistake was made in allowing the plants to pass into Vic toria under the Noxious Weeds Act. The settler acted quite openly, and the cactus' plants are alleged to have passed through by an error of the ship ping agents' carrier with the settler's luggage. The consignment seized is the true Burbank spineless variety, secured af ter great trouble by the settler, who worked for two years on Mr Burbank's Santa Iiosa nurseries to get experience before coming to Australia. Other American landseekers would have secured samples of the spineless cactus...

BOILING SEA COOKS FISH HILLS RISE OUT OF WATER [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
BOILING SEA COOKS FISH HILLS RISE OUT OF WATER Describing- Ambryn Island as "a seething mass of lava" with sea foam- ' ing over the site of the mission hos pital. officers.of the steamer Makambo. which arrived at Sydney on January 21, brought details of a terrible volcanic eruption on the island on New Year's Day, as a result of which 700 natives had to be. trans ferred to the island of Paama. The whole face of the country has been altered, and where Dr. Bowie's mission hospital stood there is now a wide stretch of sea ranging- froni 13 fathoms to no . sounding. Further along, where the sea pre viously rolled, two miles of hilly coun try appears. During eruption the water reached boiling point, and turtles and fish of all kinds rose to the surface properly cooked. Numbers of natives who were anxi ous to escape from the lava rushed into the sea, but the water was so hot that they got on to the land again. Fears are entertained for the islands of Paama and Lofevi, as clouds of steam a...
NEW VICTORIAN LOAN AMOUNT FULLY SUBSCRIBED PUBLIC CREDIT SOUND [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
NEW VICTORIAN LOAN AMOUNT FULLY SUBSCRIBED PUBLIC CREDIT SOUND Victoria's loan of £1,000,000, issued at a price of £97 (states a cable mes sage received on January 19), with interest at 4 per cent., repayable in 1940 to 1960, at option of borrower, has been fully subscribed. The stock is now quoted at a half per cent, pre mium. It is further stated that there is a general boom in stocks and shares on the London Stock Exchange. Con sols have experienced a heavy ad vance, and are now quoted at £73 16/9. This flotation must, indeed, be con sidered as a turning point in public finance and also as an indication of the high state of Victoria's credit in London. • The loan was underwritten on slightly better terms to the borrower than the recent issue by New South Wales. For some time past practically every issue of underwritten loans by British colonies has had to be mainly taken up by the underwriters and af terwards by investors, who have ob tained what they desired from under writers a...
CARE OF COWS' TEATS VALUE OF LARD [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
CARE OF: COWS' TEATS VALUE OF LARD Concerning the value ol' iarci m me j milking- shed a successful American j dairyman writes:—"It is my plan to have a small can of lard conveniently near where the milking is done and in case of warts, ulcers, chaps or bruises, it is applied regularly to the parts affected after each milking until the trouble is removed. A slight scratch or sore may look insignificant, but be painful to the cow when grasped by the strong hand of the! milkman. As the sore is so often broken open during milking it requires , a long time to heal unless given atten- j tion. It sometimes happens that large teats become hard and rough ! after weaning the calf: these are soon j rendered soft and pliable by use of lard. Rubbing with lard will also j quickly reduce inflammation of the udder. It will be no loss of time for the dairyman to attend to these teat ! troubles, for the cows will stand better while being milked, and there will be much less crying over spilt milk, an...
