TO DESTROY SORREL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

TO DESTROY SORREL. A Tasmanian farmer gives the fok lowing helpful information for its , eradication:— [ "I can guarantee a practical .clear- ; ance of the rubbish if the land is treated with lime and some form of , potash. Sor-el appears to come very strongly after using superphosphate for several years, and the root for mation thickens and strengthens. It is when it reaches such a stage that it is most difficult to get rid of. On the fallow I should use the spring tooth cultivator freely during the hot weather, so as to kill the big roots bv'! means of the sun's rays. If they can be dragged together and destroy- > ed by fire, so much the better. When using the spring-tooth, the lime could I be applied up to a ton per acre; I used from Scwt. to lOcwt. per acre. It would pay well to throw the pad dock out of crop for a season, so as to be able to work it. The first appli cation of the lime will haye a consid- I erable effect upon the weed, as where it grows after liming it will b...

A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING. How few there are who, in every day life, profit by their own experi ence or their observation of other.3. We have many excellent rules for action handed down to us which we easily forget, or, at any rate, fail to practise. For instance, we have often heard the maxim: "A place for everything and everything in its place," and yet there is hardly one in a thousand who acts upon the suggestion. So much to the contrary, that it is more true of us that we have a place for nothing and nothing in place. Yet, when we think for a moment, we Know that this old maxim is a vastly important one in all departments of life, and can lose none of its import ance from age. The more numerous and varied the departments of business, and the more diversified our implements of work are, the more important it is that we carry out the maxim, that we practise the rule Time is too precious to be wasted, and a great deal of it is spent each day in hunt ing for articles which have been m...

SAFETYS ON THE FARM. Some Precautions Worth Taking. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

SAFETYS ON THE FARM. Some Precautions Worth Taking. By "Doc." . D^n't throw boards and box covers that still have nails In them around n'romiscuously. They have an innate propensity to fall mischief-point up ward. Man or beast may be serious ly injured by stepping on them. Your barefoot boy may step on one and have a painful if not fatal wound. Your horse may be rendered worth less by stepping on such a nail. It takes a little longer to drive the nails out when you rip off a box co ver, but it's worth while. I speak from experience on this point, as J have stepped on such a nail, and—it hurts. ^ Don't drive short, stubby stakes in to the ground where anyone may trip over them. Use a stake tall enough to stand up in sight, and if it is to be a permanent marker, paint it white, that it may be seen and shun ned. Don't leave rakes on the ground teeth up. They may spike someone, or you yourself may be the unfortun ate one. Neither should hoes be thrown down with the edge up. They may cut...

Teff Grass. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

Teff Grass. Snt,—This plant is a native of Abyssinia, and i3 largely cultivated in the hill country there. It was in troduced into iS. Africa sotne years ago, where it has proved of immense value for fodder; and it is a splendid variety for a summer hay crop. If the seed gets sufficient moisture to germinate, it makes remarkably quick growth. It has been cut for hay in seven weeks from the time it was sown. When it is high enough to shade the ground, its growth is simply phenomenal, and as many as two or three cuttings may be made from it in a short sea son. lis feeding value is very high, and it is eaten greedily by all classes of stock. One fanner declares that his cattle will leave green lucerne for it, while a prominent dairyman avers that his milk supply was greatly increased bv feeding Teif. It is an annual, and should be sown in Spring. It will thrive on any ground—wet or dry, but soil of a porous, sandy nature is most suit able, and it. produces from two to three Jons of dry...

The Gippslander. THURSDAY, OCT. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

ft be (Bippslan&er. THURSDAY, OCT. 1. The Shire of Newham and Wood end has circularised the municipal councils in regard to the Country Roads Act. It objects to the appoint ment of the Board and advances various reasons, none of which are strong enough to cause a reversal of policy in relation to our main arter ies. Briefly stated they are '"(1) that it is in opposition to thd prevailing desire ifor decentalisation, (2) taxa tion for Expenditure in which the municpalities have no actual voice, and (3) providing more expensive roads than the ordinary traffic jus tifies in the interests of automobile traffic, which is mainly through traf fic, not contributing to the revenue of country municipalities." A con ference is to be held shortly, and it will be interesting to see what act ion is taken. The outstanding fact is that the very councils now object ing were clamorous for the creation ! of the Board they now condemn. A warningnote, which should be taken_ heed of, is struck in...

CHAPTER XXIX. A Grave Suspicion. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

CHAPTER XXIX. A Grave Suspicion. At the end of a week Gay and Herepath were no nearer to a solu tion of .the mystery of the missing pictures. It was annoying and d'.s turbing, and none the less so be cause they had said nothing to the police. True, Gay had communicated the loss to the solicitors to the es tate, and asked for instructions, but had received no satisfactory reply. The matter, he was Informed, had been reported to the trustees, who were "taking steps." Meanwhile, would Mr. Gay be so kind as to keep the matter a secret till he^ heard from them again. "Very far from satisfactory," Gay commented. "Still, I've done my duty in the matter. Perhaps those chaps know something and are keep ing it to themselves." "Perhaps it has happened before," Herepath suggested. "Perhaps I have stumbled upon some family scandal. Well, we have done all we can, Har old. But I've still got the idea th the thief will turn up again. It will amuse me to look out for him." For the moment there was n...

CHAPTER XXVIII. Enid Speaks Out. Harley bent his head parrot-iike again. lie and Gilray were coming to grips now. "Go on!'' he croaked. "Don't mince your words.

THE STRENGTH OF AN ANT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

THE STRENGTH OF AN ANT. i I An ant can carry a grain of corn ten times the weight of its body; while a man or horse can carry loads ! only about equal to its bodily weight. It is not a fact, however, that the ant is greatly superior in strength. If an . ant should grow to twice its original size, still retaining its geometrical and histological structure, its volume,' J and accordingly the weight of its body, would increase eightfold. Al though the muscles grow to twice their original dimensions, the in crease in length does not increase the strength, which is proportional to their cross-section, and the ant would only be four times as strong as be I - fore. As it now carries but five times its weight, however, it is rela tively only half as strong. It is cal culated that the same ant developed to the size of a man would only be able to carry one one-hundredth of its own weight instead of ten times its own weight. When knives that have been put away for some time "nave become rusty,...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lack •& Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXVII. Hard Pressed. We must row return to Dr. Gil : ,ray, whom we left outside Here path's former lodgings, where he had been to seek the inventor, only to be told that he had gone away, leaving no address. Gilray turned away from Here path's flat with a foreboding of com ing trouble. He would have found it difficult to account for this, but there it was. And Daniel Harley would not let this matter drop on the mere assurance that Herepath was not to : be found'. Harley was a hard man to deal with. He did not appear to know his own mind for two days to gether,. Take this very matter of Herepath's, for instance. At first Harley had appeared to be more than satisfied when he thought Herepath ... had been rendered helpless by his ■ failure of sight. He had been free with his praise, and had not hesita ted to say that Gilray in convinci...
