MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Speoial Correspondent). This summer has brought more tnau tlio mini number of big fires in the civj' and suburbs. The b.sses repre sented by the disasters that have cc eurred during tho past »ew months make a staggering total. Flourishing business enterprises have encountered serious set-backs, because insurance is neve'r anything like adequate compen sation for the dislocation cl' •. perations in a live concern, which is as|bad as the actual loss of goods, plant and buildings that go up in smoke, or remain a dole ful tribute to the devns .. on of an element against, which the most elabor ate precautious yet devised aro by no means efficient. That tliore lias been u vast improvement in tlio methods of iiro fighting, and tho equipment and or ganisation of the metropolitan bri gades cannot bo gainsaid. Outbreaks which have taken placo recently and which, although they have caused en ormous damage would, if opposed only by the forces and appliances at dis pos...

CROSS-LEGGED HABIT. PERSONS WHO SIT CARELESSLY. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914

CROSS-LEGGED HABIT. PERSONS WHO SIT CARELESSLl. . TuUy SO per cent, of travellers by tramway car and omnibus sit cross legged. . liiat is tlie opinion of a cor- i : respondent who has taken particular notice of liis fellow passengers. Tiio cross-legged liabit wiien you sit down is provooative of grave barm to i ;^t,he body. Indeed, in time, a Lou- i ror," it prod'uces^Vkrieoii1Jdiy'.v.. ALr- { person regularly adopts this and no 1 other attitude. ; t.'. "The objection I see to the habit," i.he said, "is that the return iiow of blood from the leg is stopped at tho knee, the result being that the veins in the leg swell up. "All the weight is thrown upon one side of the body, and the under leg 'goes to sleep* owing to the pres sure put on the sciatic nerve. The body should" be equally balanced. "There is another danger I ought 'ti> point out. If you sit cross-legged 'you become lop-sided. "Personally I never do this. 1 always let the legs rest limply—stretch ed out is just as good. ...

INTRINSIC VALUE OF MANURE ON THE FARM. THE USES IT SERVES MAKE IT OF VAST ECONOMIC IMPORTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914

INTRINSIC VALUE OF MANURF ON THE FARM. THE USES IT SERVES MAKE. IT OE VAST ECONOMIC IMPORT-, ANCE. It-is imposiblo to accurately estimate the full money yaluo of farm inanuro. Its value as a fertiliser; that is, the money value of tho plant food that it adds to the soil, may oasily bo computed from a chemical analysis. But through out the country, as a general rule, its value as a fertiliser requires much less consideration that its other values. Its offect upon tho soil far transcends)'in value tho valuo ol the plant food it adds to tho soil. These other uses ot farm manure are of primo importance to the producing capacity of most' soils They havo not boon givou enough con sideration, and as a result, the pro ducing capacity of those soils has not been made what it might easily have been mado. Nearly all soils are seriously lacking in vegotablo content. Vegetable I growth uses up the vegetablo oontenl of tho soil. After land has been suc cessfully cropped for a number of years tho ...

CHERRY WINE. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914

CHERRY WINE. A recipe for tiio manufacture tf cjiorry wine, recommended by the viti cultural Expert of New South Wales Mr M. Blunno, reads:—itemovo tno stalks of the cherries, and then make a pulp of the fruit without breaking the stones, working the pulp so as to free it entirely from the stones. Tho pulp should then be passed through a sievo. To the pulp of every 2olb oi fruit add 51b sugar, together with 002 cream of tartar and jone gallon of water. Stir the whole and make a homogenous fluid. Place the vessel in a room where the temperature is from 65 to 70 deg. Eahr., and cover same with a cloth. After about 24 hours, tho liquor will begin to ferment. When fermentation has subsided (which can be judged by the cessation of bubbling) the liquid Bhould be separated1 from the pulp, and tho former (which is now wine) is stored away in a cask and kept in a cool place. Tho storage vessel should be kept tilled, either by adding more" of the ctierry wine or else good sound grape wine, re...

A SWAMP SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914

A SWAMP SOIL. • V Somb owners of swamp s.oil are puzz led . by: .their/ unproductive character when first cultivated. They reason , that soils have been made out ot vegetation and- therefore, should be .abio t to produce plants luxuriantly. ://Tlie" truth, generally is that a raw /;swamp soil -is in an inert, condition. /'.-The air has been excluded, and acids ' have formed, and bacteria are not at .work. When tno water lias been ./drawn off, the exposure of the soil to 1 frost after autumn ploughing and a /summer of thorough, tillage does much v to .'mend matters. A few tons of Stable manure per acre introduce the ,-ifeeded bacteria. An application 01 ' lime sweetens the soil. The nitro i gnu in tho swamp begins to gain av '/affability. Usually, mere is great ; deficiency. in potasn, and heavy ap plications pay. Phosphoric acid also vis :needed.

TOO WELL KNOWN 10 NEED AN "AD." • * ——o This idea that you have lived so long in town that everybody knows you and you don't need to advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advertising, indiffetence to doing business as it is don*- in this day and age, is what has enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store is the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail order house. Of course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible, but he can keep an advertisement jn his local paper, and see that it is changed, ■tbus keeping new batgains continually befor the public, ,1c should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at. icast once a month. Don't look upon your country newspaper as an dbject of chanty. There is not a single country newspaper in the State, with a . general local cir...

IN THE EVENING. The Kerang team was entertained at dinner in the evening at the Commercial hotel, where a first class menu was provided, to which, needless to say, full justice was done by all present. ' After all had satisfied the inner man a number of toasts were proposed and honored. Mr Fellows, who occupied the' chair, said it gave him much plea sure in proposing the toast of "The Kerang District Cricket Associa tion." They had had a really good game that afternoon. The meetings of che Boort and Kerang associa tion teams every year were always looked forward to with pleasure,, as the games were played in a friendly spirit, and there was never any bickering.
