Agricultural Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 2 April 1896

- Agrioultaral .Notes. Lucerne is undoubtedly the .most valuable \ fodder crop that \ye have in Australia. - So popular, has it become in the South that the leading seedsmen of Melbourne have for some years-past found^it difficult to supply the demand for seed. One firm lias already disposed of 15 tons of seed this, season, though sowing has not yet commenced. The bulk of the seed was sent into Riverina, where lucerne is in great favor for fattening sheep. .A horse can^'draw on ;.the worst kind of earth road about four' times as much as he can carry on his back. On a.macadamised road he can pull I'D times as much, on a wooden road 25 times as much, and on a street railway 58 times as much. ??'.f '']? A great many peach growers in N.S W., have found that good dressings of potash, wheather in the form of wood-ashes or potash; salts, are the jbest reinedy for the peach-rust ( Puccinia pmni), wh'ch injures the trees so much in .the autumn.

WHAT A HORSE CAN JUMP. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 2 April 1896

What a Horse oast Jump. Different horses stride differently. Some are long stridors ; others are short, quick, catchy stridors. There are 5280 ft. in a mile and this has been covered in 1.40 minutes. Taking this as a standard, we find that a horse to do this must cover 52 4-5 feet in a second. At three strides to the second this would give an average of nearly 17^ -feet to., the stride. A close observer and an excellent authority on racing matters thinks it probable that a horse does not take more than two and a half strides to the second, and that he consequently strides moro than :17£ feet. This view is borne out by the fact that horses have leaped more than double that; distance, y Rufus, '.the great Irish steeplechaser, was said twenty years a {re to have covered' :39i;feet 6 inches in striding lover a[ 'brook^ \Oh:^n^ler, : ridden by Captain; Broadl.ey at Warwick in 1847, is recorded to have jumped 37'. feetover.. water, and . at ;Calverthorpe, over hurdles, to have jumped .'34...

PREVENTING CATTLE FENCE BREAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 2 April 1896

Preventing Cattle^ence -bkeaking. A very good \yay\to jprevent bulls from l)reaking th'f^^h feudes, is as follows.:— A ring put in'th'e1 bull's %se, and one. in each horn where it would not hurt him. Then two light tough pieces of . wood (old axe handles are very suitable) with holes bored through near the end are fastened to the nose ring at one end, and the other end ol each is lastened to the ring in . the horns, split rings or links being used for this pur pose. Directly the animal gets his head against the fence, the press jre hurts his no.«e and cures him of attempting to get through the fence. The essence of horse philisophy is con tained in the following from an exchange: l( Reins may guide the horse, the bit may inspire himi and the whip may urge him forward, but tiie^'human voice is more potent than ' a.l^ ^ Its assuring tones will mora quickly^di|pel frighl^ its sharp, clear, electric commands w3.ll more thoroughly arouse his ambition, and its gentle, kindly praises will ...

For The People. ; , IMPORTANT FOR COUNTED READERS. (By John Haynes, M . £.) v *' A BIG BOON TO COUNTRY RESIDENTS. It is not a Very difficult thing to prove ; 'that '.the Land Tax is a big boon to country i- 'people,- farmers,- squatters, and business men1. In point of fact, the passing of this measure of direct taxation was the first ' signal 'victory of the country districts over the lich metropolis of Sydney, which for .years, has ruled the political roost in New South Wales. v In dealing with the matter, on the plarform', I have always, in the Very first place, asked any of tb6 opponents of land' tax to explain whv land in the cotmtry districts, is after all the years^ of- toil and labour upon it, worth only ahotit £l per auro, while land in the city, without any toil or expenditure on the part of the lucky owner, was worth up £2,000 per foot. (In some parts of Geof-ge street £3,000 per v foot would be refused). I have never been answered adversely, for there Was only one explana...
