Angling Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 8 October 1914

H' Angling Notes. B A mooting of members of tho Bal an club was called for Tuesday night, but there wore was not a sufficient attendance, and the mooting lapsed. It was reported that trout wore dying in large numbers in the reser voir at Korweinguboora. The wator in this reservoir is very low, and it is thought that what, water remains is highly mineralized, and is killing tho fish. Pyke's Creek reservoir only con tains 3134 aero feet, and this will disappear before long. It is stated that trout are going through tho out let freely, and fine fish have been picked up dead in the distributing channels at Bacchus Marsh. It is possible that some fish will got into tho channels, but as there are many tine holes betivoen the reservoir and Bacchus Marsh, no great numbers are likely to be destroyed iu this man | tier.

APPLYING FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 8 October 1914

APPLYING FERTILISERS. A point often considered is whether it is better to apply fertilisers by drill oi" broadcast, and experiments were car ried out last year by the National Su ciety lof Hungarian Agriculturalists to test the relative advantages oi tho two methods. Tho first experiment with barley led to no definite results, as. owing to tho heavy rainfall, the crop was badly logged. It was, however, noticed that a moderate application by drill of superphosphates and nitrate of soda produced 110 ill effects on the germina tion of the seed, and rather .stimulated tho first development of the younger plants. More successful results were obtain ed with sugar beet, manuring in the drills leading to bettor development oi tho crop, and while there were no j great differences in the sugar content ! of tho beets, the yield obtained was > greatly iu favor of this method, liven ! iyhere_ the amount of superphosphate and nitrate of soda, applied in the drill was only halF that broadcasted...

Specialist Explains Cause of Stomach Trouble. Valuable Advice to Sufferers[?] [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 October 1914

Specialist Explains Cause of Stomach Trouble. Vftluablo Advico to Sufferovs, "There aro many different forms of stomach trouble," said a well known specialist recently, "but practically all aro traceable to excessive acidity and food fermentation. That is why the rosults obtained from the use of' drugs are usually so disappointing. (Admitting fermentation and conse quent acidity of the food contents to bo the underlying cause of most fonns of indigestion, it naturally follows that the use of a reliable antacid, such as the pare bisurated magnesia which is so frequently prescribed by physicians, will produce better ro sults than any known drug or com-, bination of drugs. Accordingly I al most invariably advise those who complain of digestive trouble to get some bisurated magnesia (note the name carefully, as other forms are unsuitable for this purpose), from their clicmist, and take half a tea spoonful of the powder, or two fivo grain compressed tablets, with a little water after mea...

Even thirty bob is a good return for one shilling, especially when all you have to do is to mail the money to the secretary, Eight Hour Art Uuion, Sydney. What's more; your shilling goes to help a good cause. If you don't win a prize you're not the worse off. Ten to one you've forgotten all about your shilling long before the results are published, and if the fates aro against you, why, it can't be helped, and you don't want to cry over it.

I TEST FOR SOIL ACIDITY. Most agriculturists are familiar with th© litmus paper and hydrochloride acid tests for soil acidity, if only by repute; and the ammonia test is also known. From tho Wisconsin Univer sity comes a now method, which is said to givo more definite results than the litmus paper, at any rate, and which can be carrieid out in about a quarter of an hour. Zino sulphide, with small amounts of calcium chlov'd© and water, are added to samples of the soil, the mixture being boiled in a flask held over a spirit lamp. Commercial load acetate paper, held in the fumes for a few minutes, will turn from its natural white color, to a shade which varies from a light brown to a shiny black, according to the degree of acid ity present in the soil.
