SILAGE FOR FARMS A SENSIBLE PRACTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
SILAGE FOR FARMS A SENSIBLE PRACTICE.. A farmer, Mr G. M. Black, of Glad stone, South Australia, in a paper read before the local branch of the Bureau of Agriculture, refers to the crops which can be turned into silage on a well managed farm. He thus deals with them:—(a) Wheat and oats that have been sown for grain and hay, and in October contain too large a per centage of wild oats and turnips. Por tion of these crops, if left, would make very poor hay, and yield very low re turns of grain. If cut when green they can be utilised for silage, (b) If the stock are turned out of the grass paddocks in a good seasort about the beginning of August, clover, barley, grass, etc., will be found growing, and this will make good ensilage. (c) iMaize, sorghum, peas, and -vetches can be grown for the purpose. The cutting out of the portions of the wrheat crops dirtiest with turnips would make good filling for a silo, and at the same time it would help to clean the land. No drv fodder must be put ...

COUNTRY NEWS COROWA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
Harvesting operations are now pracucauy over and agriculturists are enabled to sum up the result of their year's labor. Within the immediate Murray Valley districts., the crops have yielded splendidly and instances are re ported where 13 bags have been gathered while ten was a common yield. The ave rage for the district will, it Is expected, work , out at about 14 bushels per acre. Balldale will give about a similar average. Dak lands and Berrigan yield is put down at an average of 11 bushels. Brocklesby and Cul cairn will make an average of 12 bushels. On the whole the season may well be written down as a good one. Now that harvesting operations are com pleted the need for a good soaking rain is be coming pronounced. The latter end of the year was very dry, and so far a big area of this part of the State has not been favored with rain this year . Apart from rain being required to render the ground workable for next sowing, the grape crop is sadly in need of moisture. The crop" gene...
MANSFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
MANSFIELD. The rainfall for the past year totalled 28y2 inches, and was.about 2% inches in excess of the average. The fall in the winter months was light, but good rains fell in the autumn and spring, with beneficial _ ef fect. Only 15 points have been received this month. The weather is warm and suitable for har vesting, which has been in full swing. It is rapidly nearing completion. No caterpillars have been seen. Threshing is being done. The fields are not as good as were expected. About 40 bushels of oats per acre is the average yield so far. Stock are in good condition, but prices are lower. Sheep are still in good demand, at the lower rates. The export trade has de nuded the district of fat lambs. Dairying is still showing good returns, and the milk supply, considering the dry state of the grass, is very good. The potato crops are not yielding well, owing to lack of rain at suitable times. Wind storms have played havoc with the fruit crop3. A few bush fires have broken out, bu...
PORT FAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
PORT FAIRY. Harvesting operations are almost finished, and the threshing machines are now busily at work throughout the district. The yields in some places are very good, but, on the average, are hardly up to last season. The milk supply at . the district factories is now -oil the decrease, but the past season was a good one for the dairying industry. All classes of sheep and cattle are selling very well in the local markets for this period of the year. The potato market has fallen again, the present quotation being £1/15/ per ton, but farmers ■ are not inclined to sell at that figure. I AI1 classes of farm produce are rather de I pressed, the best' offer for malting barley | being 3/ per bushel, whilst oats are quoted at 1/6 to 1/8 per bushel. I Last week there. was a rise of 10/ per head in the pig market, prime baconers selling from £4 to £4/5/8, and forward stores from £2/10/ to £2/17/.

RYAN'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
RYAN'S CREEK. Lately we have experienced a hot dry time. A tew days showed a shade temperature of 105 degrees. They were very oppressive, both for man and beast. At present the weather Is not quite so hot. The farmer was enabled to harvest his crops without damage, so that he had nothing to grumble at in that respect; but he is com plaining at the low prices now generally pre vailing for hay and oats. The present market rates will -only give him hack, he says, hiw expenses, notwithstanding his good yields. Threshing machines are in full work in this locality. I Grasshoppers have done more damage to ; grass than was thought some short time since, with the result that sheep and cattle, and especially the former, are not thriving as they should do. This insect, as many of your readers know, devours the young and j teuder grass, which is most relished by j sheep. ! The few potato crops grown here are giving1 j tubers of a good quality, and yields are fairly good. This is not considered ...
FOUR MILLIONS NEEDED LOAN BILLS BEFORE HOUSE PREMIER IS CONFIDENT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
FOUR MILLIONS NEEDED LOAN BILL# BEFORE HOUSE PREMIER IS CONFIDENT xwo L>iiis were brought forward in the Legislative Assembly on January 22 to authorise the raising by loan or issue of Government stock, of, in the aggregate, £4,000,000, "and for railways and other purposes. The first of the measures provided that the Government might raise by loan or the creation of Government stock £2,500,000 for railways. Mr Watt, the Premier, in moving that the Bill be read a second time, said that it was intended to raise the money in London. Experience had taught that the Treasurer should have a reasonable margin to work on, and should be in a position to take advantage of the state of the money market. He was sure that a developmental policy in regard to the construction of railways and the providing of ample rolling stock would commend itself to all members of the House. The advantage of having both the London and the local markets to operate upon was that the money could be raised, when r...

WOMAN TARES POISON ASSISTANCE INEFFECTUAL As the result of an inquest held at the Morgue on January 20 on the body of Rose May Wong- Sow, the Coroner found that she had taken poison while drunk, there being no evidence to show the slate of her mind at the time.
