AGRICULTURE AS A PROFITABLE PURSUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

AGRICULTURE AS A PROFIT ABLE PURSUIT. Increased knowledge is •-necessary to the existence of agriculture as a -pro'St able pursuit, for the competition or the ■ world is becoming keener .evqry year., --■■..,, and the primeval low of the . survival of the fittest never ceases to be ruth lessly enformed. It is tho main object of agricultural jo trnalism ,to point the way in. this respect, and to endeavor to inculcate more up-to-date and scien -tific ways of getting the most out ot the soil. It matters not if the pro-. ■ gross be slow, provided it be steam and sure. It is better to learn slowly and thoroughly, retaining the know ledge absorbed, than quickly and 111 a superficial way. A tortoise, on the right track, will icach the goal sooner than a racehorse on the wrong one. Education nowadays, agricultural ' and otherwise, is obtained from books and agricultural newspapers, and -with out education a man has no chance. The successful farmer must study books and journals dealing with t...

To-day it did extensive damage, getting from the forest into settled farms. Fanned by a wes terly wind, it overran Hillsborough, and passed ovar the mountain into the valley, where Mr j. Schollard's house Hud plant were destroyed. It is now raging in the property of Mr George Beattv, and will do more - damage if it be no! checked. As .the fire is in the forest country, there is no hope of staying its pro^ gress unless rain comes or the wind ceases.

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? " Wliy, asks an expert, do we import citrus fruit from Italy? We have conditions here favorable to the~ growing of first class fruit. We can produce citrus fruit liere equal to what we receive from Italy, if pro per cultural methods are practised. The soil is here, and the climatic condition. The Italian fruit has a thin skin, the correct flavor, and its keeping quality is world-renowned. Yet some of our locally-produced oran ges will compare favorably with theirs, but to oust the imported ar ticles growers should endeavor to * produce more of this class. The thin. skinned varieties are just as easily grown as the inferior types, and, as far as flavor is concerned, many of our up-to-date growers produce fruit every bit as good as that imported— better in fact, but the drawback: is that we do not get enough, nor does it always combine with the commer cially-essential thin skin.

SMOKING WHILE MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

/SMOKING WHILE MILKING. Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. If any acci dent occurs by which a pail-full, or partly full of. milk becomes dirty, do not: try, to remedy this. by straining, but reject all this milk, and rinse th,e pail. We remember one day, when on a visit, seeing ar milking hand smoking - a pipe, a Suddenly, he spoke to the -vCow, and the pipe fell from the Jinan's mouth into the bucket. He 'made one grab into the milk-bucket, put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking! Then, what about the ash from a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the man or boy who smokes while milking.

PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

PIGS FOR BACON. Certain modifications in the meth ods of killing and preparing pigs for bacon, have been necessary in recent - years to meet the demands of the ~ consumer and curer. Among these has been the movement in favor of less fat and more lean, what is pre ferred how being a tasty, mild-flavor ed, somewhat lean bacon, which is finely streaked with fat and of firm texture. It is occasionally found in dealing with carcases for either pork-or ba con that there exists an abnormal condition in the texture of fibre oC the flesh. It is soft, yields to pres- . aure, is flabby, and possesses an un natural greasiness. This -class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro duces inferior bacon. Observation the various classes of tfood being use? in improper proportions. Further experience has shown that this influence is more pronounced dur ing winter. Low temperatures exert a change upon the nature of the body fat. Animals exposed to cold are prone to produce an oily class Aof flesh, whe...

GRIT A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

GRIT A NECESSITY. A lack of this causes a slow supply \ of eggs, and if fowls have not tlie materials for digesting their food, it is impossible for them to get on, for the proper nutriment must be extract ed from the food for the production 5 of eggs. . , Oyster shell grit for lime, as well . as sea shell or pebbly beach grit, is. --best for the purpose, as it is very hard and sharp, and a small quantity goes ? a long way. It should be kept in a trough in the run for the fowls to help themselves to.

SCALY LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

SCALY LEGS. Scaly legs are contagious (as are ^ " most diseases of poultry), and can be cured by washing with carbolic soap and hot water, painting legs with kerosene or wood preserving oil oc casionally. This unsightly enlarge ment of the leg is caused by a para site (sarcoptes mutaris), and is close ly associated with un'cleanliness and over-crowded runs. Each high achievement is a sign and token of the whole nature's pos sibility. What a piece of the man was for that shining moment it is the duty of the whole man to be ah/ays. A boy wouldn't be happy in heaven unless he could run the risk of break ing: his neck. « A tourist travelling in the western part of Ireland was trying to have . some fun at the expense of a native of the country. "You have a very i fine view from here, my friend,' said th<» tourist. "Ay," replied the native, Ve can gomptimes see a long way." "All, I suppose you can see Ameri ca when it's clear?"

LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

LUCERNE AS A- SOIL RESTORER. Mr. S. P. Keys, writing in "Hoard's Dairyman," '.says: —When.. ,we / come to the, question of the upkeep of the fer tility of our farmsj we find' that \v<b face quite a serious problem. From' what source are we to restore the humus, or vegetable matter, that is being rapidly exhausted by continu ous cropping? Manures and commercial fertilisers, while valuable, are not always obtain able. Farmers waste the ■ barnyard manure, and feel that they cannot af ford to buy commercial fertilisers. To fill the biU there must be something within easy aoceso of every farm. The answer fto C&it' is —green manures. The king Di legumes used in green manuring iv lucerne. Not only does it answer ti/ery requirement of a green manure, but is sis also one of the most valuable of the standard crops.

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it that a newly-engaged girl is a thorn in the flesh to all her dis engaged sistei' women? " ' To begin 'with—observes 'a "-lady correspondent (who' is not newly-en gaged)—she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have .-heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly • quite ' nice, but the most ordinary girl who ever seiz ed uppn her first proposal will patron ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone. When she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny— over the ring more especially. This , sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in other ways, she is so hopelessly selfish. - •' But perhaps the personal vanity of the engaged girl enrages her femin ine acquaintances more than any of ber numerous failings.

Mr Gardner, J.P., said- - " Thii- has been rather a tedious case, presenting some peculiar feat ures, the most interesting of which is that the accused, while in posses sion of a certain sum of monej', ad mitted to have been stolen in New South Wales, is arrested, in Vic toria, and fined for an offence committed within that Stat". The: fine is deducted, and retained by the Victorian police from the stolen money.
