TURNIPS FOR CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 April 1915
TURNIPS FOR CATTLE. JLn using these roots for cattle, it is a practice in many parts of the country to give them uncut in shods, yards ar'J fields. The plan is to be strongly condemned for the following reasons (1) Because there is a danger ol caus ing choking; (2) the plan is wastj'ui; " (3) the roots are not used to best ad vantage, as they should s\vc«ten other diet, such as straw ;ind inferior hay. It is a coin moil belief that roots given tin cut are not liablo to choke, but i.'.u-y cannot be really salely served, units* properly pulped or cut. When cattle are fed on whole roots, it is the last piece that is liablo to do tlie mischief, especially if it be tlie neck of the to -t. Then in wholesale feeding, there is a I ways great waste from trampling l lit; roots and otherwise making them dis tasteful. They aro cold food, con taining :is they do, much water. Hence pulping and mixing with 'chaff until tlie heap ferments is the best and most economical way of serving them. Not onl...

BONE MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 April 1915
BONE MANURES. There has been a disposition ou the !.:«rt of ag-'icultural analysts and pro fessors to depreciate the fertilising value of dissolved bone manures, and to express the opinion that mixtures of superphosphato of lime with a littlo sulphate of ammonia or other nitrogen ous material could be depended on to produce equally good results at a less cost. Greater experience, however, has .shown that the old-fashioned prefer ence of many farmers, practical and in telligent men, for a bone manure is not without its justification. A.. greater knowledge of the action of baeteria leaches us that these useful organisms flourish best when there is a supply of organic substances in the soil, and it is this organic character of bone manures which makes them more valuable thau' simple mineral compounds'." A pure dis solved bone fertiliser, in which the bone material has only been partly dissolved by acid, or a boue compound manure containing a considerable proportion of the bone structur...
INTENSIVE FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 April 1915
INTENSIVE FARMING. . Alter the conclusion of the war it is quite probable that England will ob tain a much larger proportion of her food supplies from the outlying part* 01 the .Empire. This means that the various British colonies and Dominions may fee] assured of a prosperous mar ket lor their products, and, as a con sequence, need experience no diffi dence in growing what may be required for consumption in the United King dom. Even at the present time, and previous to the outbreak of war, there was JL greater demand in England lor certain products than Australia could supply, and while such conditions pre vail, people on the land in this part of the world can complain of no lack of opportunity. So keen has been the demand for meat for some years past that herds and ilocks in Australasia have been afforded no opportunity ot . appreciably increasing, inasmuch as a great deal of the stock that ought to havu been reserved for breeding pur poses has been slaughtered for export. As addi...

Completely Run Down Owing to Indigestion. DR. MORSE'S INDIAN ROOT PILLS EFFECT RAPID CHANGE. ' "I was suffering with indigestion for a period of eighteen months and found no benefit from many medi cines used," writes Mr. John Henry / Yarwood, of Forest Lane, off Bar nard-street, Bendigo. "My health was completely run. down through want of nourishment to the system. I could take nothing into my stomach without retching, on one occasion I went four days without a bite of food. My appetite was gone and I conld not eat. In my sheer exhaus tion and despair I tried Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills, and can well re member it; an early improvement was discernible, and after taking a few doses I commenced to make rapid strides towards my old condi tion. My appetite was soon restored to its normal state, and I say Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills achieved a positive triumph in my. recovery from indigestion. I cannot speak too highly of your great remedy which stands unrivalled, in my estimation." I...
ALPHABETICAL ODDITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 April 1915
ALPHABETICAL ODDITIES. Many of our readers probably have noticed the extraordinary coincidence in connection with the nameB Generals Joffre and French when written thus J 0 F-F RE' F R E-N C H You will observe that the letters are so intermingled as to be inseparable, tLus typifying the close relationship existing between our own army and the men of France in their common determination to smash the arrogance of the Kaiser. There are any number of these oddities waiting to be found, and the seeking of them will provide an inter esting pastime. For instance here is another example, formed from the title of the "War Lord," and the name of the little country he was going to punish K A I-S E R S E R-V I A Of course the punishment did not materalise, but William handed Loufc a few thousand Iron Crosses, which pleased him nearly as much. Then there is Turkey-who, Btuffed with "Kultur"-looks like falling in the soup: K U L-T U R T U R-K E Y With these before them readers may without difficu...
THE MASTER PASSION CHAPTER XLVIII. THE GIPSY'S WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 April 1915
the MASTER PASSION (By Lillian Ellertoii). gHAPTEB XLVIil. THE GIPSY'S WAKXINO. "1 (lou't know how it is," grumbled Mr. Salomons, down the long expanse of glittering glass and fragrant Uowers which docorated hia dinner-table, "our parties aro not what they used to be. I'm not talking ol" the food, that's pretty much the same every season, and there's no variety in the length of the bills which crop up afterwards; but the conversation gets so dcadly-lively without Beresford to set it goiug. Duval's here, to be sure, but he's not up to the mark, and half the time sits as if he were almost inclined to have a nap." "lie'if talkiug euough now," said Mrs. Downey, the larger, if not the bet ter, half of a wool merchant, looking at the artists with affectionate, middle aged interest, "i always say if I had met him when I was a girl. Downey wouldn't have had a chance.'' .You mean if Duval had winked at you over the edge of his cradle " and Mr. Salomons chuckled. 11 is neighbour did not see t...
TURF TOPICS. (Written for [?] Heyfield "Herald") [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 April 1915
TURF TOPICS. (Written for - Heyfield "Herald") Interviewed by a delegation of Turf ites last week. Mr John Murray, the CIiTef Secretary, made a significant re mark Mr Murray gave it as his opin ion that racing is being overdone, and that probably measures would have to bo taken to reduce it. No one of reasonable mind will oppose this con tention, for in good truth, the sport has far too many dates. The conse quences must be serious if the present state of affairs is allowed to exist much longer. Totalisator legislation w:ll provoke tho necessary remedy. With the machine in use. it can be taken for granted that the Government will see to it that the number of meetings now advertised in the "Calendar" in an ord inary season, is appreciably reduced. Evidently, horses capable of manag ing even a middle' distance are scarce in the Rivepna just now. Only six horses weighed out for the Wagga Cup last week, despite that the journey was only ton furlongs. In the old days this time honored ev...
NAMBROK AND DENISON. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 April 1915
NAMBROK AND DENISON. (Ftom our owu Correspondent.) This district at the present time has a busy appearance, chiefly owing to the big demand for fodder from all parts. For many months several chaffcutters and straw presses have been working top speed putting the hay and straw through, and now .more than ever are at work before the fast diminishing Stacks. A great deal of produce was sold some time ago on a rising market, and in many cases farmers are not reaping the full advantages of the high prices-handsome profits in many cases find their way to Collins street.; Although it has been an unfortunate year in almost all parts of Australia, people in this small centre have had a very satisfactory year, being lucky ^nough to have fair average crops, with prices a great deal above the average. It is characteristic of the man on the land never to be satisfied and always growling, but a stranger passing through this district would be disappointed if he looked for this distinctive trait, as...
