POTATO-GROWING. ESSENTIALS OF CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

POTATO-GROWING. ESSENTIALS OF CULTURE. Wherever possible the potato erol should follow one of clover. In case, where it is difficult to get a stand of clover, cow peas, soy beans or oats and Canada field peas may be substituted. These are all leguminsous crops (ex. cepting the oats) and make fine feed for stock. The best crop with which to follow the potato crop will depend upon the location of the farm, the system of farming pursued and the fertility of the land. The following are merely sugestive. A very common rotation is potatoes, wheat in which is-sown tim othy in the fall and clover in the spring, clover and timothy and back to potatoes again. in some cases the farmer may wish to keep his field in grass two years, in which case the rotation would be a four-year one and the potatoes would follow the timothy. In the higher al titudes of the State oats would, in many cases, take the place of the wheat. For such locations, potatoes with a cover crop of rye that would furnish good ...

HASTENING PLANT GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

HASTENING PLANT GROWTH. The new methods of increasing plant growth by artificial means, which have recently- given promising results, are de pendent, in the one case, on the light from mercury vapour lamps, and in the other on the use of radio-active matter incorporated with the soil. The Times states that interesting experiments re cently carried out with mercury vapour lainps by M~Is E. C. Dudgeon' in Dum fries showed that in certain cases seeds germinated several weeks earlier with the aid of the light than when grown in the natural way: The time for ger mination u?nder the influence of the ul tra-violet rays from the lamp was 11 days in the case of carrots as against 26 days when grown naturally, while maize germinated in eight days instead of fifty-seven with the aid of the mer cury vapour light. Wheat, barley, and various other seces were tested and in all cases a hiastening of germination resulted. Strawberries cultivated in the ultra-violet light gave an increased crop of 25...

JAPAN'S NEW WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

JAPAN'S NEW WOMEN. Chief Yamamoto, of the Tokio Do teotive Bureau, is greatly concerned at the tendency among Japanese wo men to free themselves from the shac kels of convention, and he has warned -them in an official commuiication of the dire consequences of following the lead of advanced members of their sex. "The modern education of women" he says, "seems to me defective in the promotion of womanly virtues, with-the result that the time honored ideal 6f women to be good mothers and wise wives has lost its authority. There are large numbers- of young women who clamour for their rights and free dom to oppress men. Men and wo men are born differently, and women cannot beat men in intellectual and physical power. In Japan, the spheres Jf activity for men and women are definitely fixed.. Men have to work out, and women have to keep house. Now women would like to work out, and imitaite men in motorin]; in mak ing speeches, and even in demanding freedom in morals. There are wo men who o...

REMEDIES FOR EAR-ACHE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

REMEDIES- FOR EARACHE. Hot applications, such as a hot-water bottle, or flannel cloths wrung out .ol hat water, and applied to the ear, will often give instant relief, especially if the pain is caused by neuralgia in the face or head. If you do not have -a -hot-water bottle, a flannel sack filled with hops can be used. Make a small sack of flannel, fill it with hops,. and dip the bag of hops into very hiot wa ter, wring it out as dry as possible, and apply gt to the ear. This forms a very good form of moist heat, and if a dry flannel cloth is placed over the head, covering the bag of hops, this will hold the steam and make one of the best ways there is of steaming the ear. Of course, as the hops be come cold they can be dipped in the hot water againh Another' method is to-heat salt, just common table salt, until it is quite hot, put it in a flannel bag, aidsapply to the ear,.

CLEANLINESS AND THE SKIN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

-CLEANLINESS AND THE SKIN. The importance of cleanlines for the healthy performaco of the functions of life is the subject of a lecture deliver. ed at the London Institute by Profes sor Lewes, and published in Nature We may, says Professor Lewes, live for days without giving our stoaoacl any work to do, the liver may cease action for several days before death ensues, but it is impossible to survive for the same length of time, if the functions of the skin are entirely stop ped. Indeed, the professor cites the case of a child which, being gilded all over to pose as a statue, died in a few hours. The suboriferous ducts, of which there are about 3500 to the square inch of skin, perform the important fune-. tion of throwing off the moisture pro duced during the combustion of waste tissue by the oxygen of the blood, and secretes about 23 oz. of perspiration in the 24 hours, which evaporates withi. out producing iany sensible moisture of the skin. This throwing off the perspiration and it...

ATTACK ON OLD WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

ATTACK ON OLD WOMAN. Bent and frail, under the weight -of 85 years, Mrs Clara Grossman was on her way homeo to New York recently, with a silk shawl which she had just purchased as a birthday gift for a little grand-child, when she was at tacked by three young men. While one clasped his hands around the old woman's neck to stifle any cry, the others pushed her into a doorway. There they took the parcel contaihing the shawl and her purse, which had about tree dollars in it. = As the three young men broke away. from her and ran. she fell to the floor of the hallway screaming. Her cries attracted the attention of numerous women on :the side-walk with their baby carriages, and of men in the shops. Betore the three had run a block, five hundred men and 'women were pursuing them, but. they eseaped, two by jumping a surface car, and one by being a faster runner than any one in the crowd.. - - Mrs Grossman was sent to her home with one eye discolored from a blow, and suffering ftom shock."' ...

Migration of Fish. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

'Migration of Fish. An unusual spectacle was wit nessed.a few days ago by residents of Cobram and Barooga who hap pened to be at the Murray river about sundown, when a number of large cod. fish, varying. in length from 18 inches to fully I feet, went leaping aid disporting down stream oi ~heir annual migfation tp the }owle reaches of the river. Those who were fortunate enough to see the sight state that4 at times over thirty huge fish would come, to the surface and splash about for fully forty seconds, while others would either jump clear out of the water or lazily roll over, and show their white undersides, - Old fishermen state that this migration of big fish takes place every year when the spawning season is over, though a shoal-rarelycalls attention to itself by coming tothe surface. Strange to ray, the fish will not take a bait or rise to a spoor while thus en

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

TURF TOPICS.. (By "Flemington.") Several metropolitan trainers have the Cltmperdown Cup meeting in view, judging by the talk one hears here and there about the tracks in the mornings. From what can be learned, the C.T.C. secretary may expect something like a record number of entries from Mel bourne on Monday, and as Western district stables are also bound to nomi nato freely, the handicapper will ii framing the weights for the different events on the programme, find his task a heavier one than usual. But Mr. Bendall can be depended upon to rise to the occasion. Beyond repeating that the work did not agree"vith him, Mr. S. Griffiths, the 'retiring stipendiary steward has not so far gratified public curiosity by revealing the cause of his resignation. The peculiar part of it is that it toon Mr. Griffiths over 12 months to discover that the position was "uncongenial" (a term that may be given a wide applica tion). Mr. Griffiths cannot, then, be taxed with acting hastily in the matter s...

AVENEL [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

AVENEL On Friday evening last an en jyab'e evening was spent at the public hall, when Mr W. Smithers Gadd camne up. from Melbourne specially to deliver a lecture on the "Eirly History of Australia " The evening was warm with an occa slonal cool breeze; it was bright moonlight and people came -from Tabilk, Mangalore and other dis tant parts. The hall was fairly well filled,and the proceeds were de voted to the building fund of the new Church of England. . Mr Ed ward Plummer, J.P., presided and briefly introduced the lecturer.- He said he had known Mr Gadd for about 40 years. " In his opening re marks, Mr Gadd jocularly said that he wished to correct Mr Plummer's statement that he had known the lecturer for about 40 years. ,Whilst they both were getting old there was no necessity to make him really older than what he was. If Mr Plummer had said 33 years it would have been nearer the mark. Mr -Gadd alluded briefly to the means that hastened the discovery of Aus tralia or New Holland, a...

ARTIFICIAL MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

ARTIFICIAL MANURING. The whole object of artificial manur ing being to supplement the deficien oies of the soil, it is highly desirable that a farmer should ascertain - by trails in the field what is.the actual amount of increase which he obtains from the application of the manures he purchases . A few carefully-made ax periments will teaoh him what nis land and crops are really in need of. Should he use superphosphate as well as nitrate of soda for his wheat? What dressing of the nitrate is most econo mical? Is superphosphate alone suffi cient for his turnip crop, or should ammonia or. nitrate be employed as well? What is the smallest quantity of superphosphate sufficient for the crop? Will it pay to use potash salts for his seeds, his pasture, or his potato crop? These and many other- ques tions can only -be answered by trials on his own fields. On the farmer's knowledge of such facts will depend the economy with which lihe-is able to use purdhased manures, which are by some waste...

NATURE'S GERM-PROOF TINS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

NATURE'S GERM-PROOF TINS. "Packed in germ-proof air-tig t tins," runs the advertisement of a new line of preserved food. One of the most useful inventions of modern times, in deed, is that of being able to preserve fresh foods indefinitely. Like most in ventions, however, it is not original. Nature was the first to invent a germ proof package. Dozens of her precious seeds she protects from microbes, one of the best examples of her care being the banana. The skin of the banana is, in fact, not only proof against the attacks of microbes, but it protects the inner pulp from insects and from the decay ing influences of the air. For that reason the banana is one of the best fruits to cat, for the chances are prac tically nil of it carrying disease germs. Many nuts, too, are air-proof and germ proof. If you crack a nut and it is bad inside look carefully at the shell and you will find that a hole has been bored in it by an insect, causing it to rot. Nature, too, protects many of her child...

A special meetinig of the Seymour Water Trust was held on Monday afternoon for the purpose of seeing what could be done to increase forthwith the water supply at Sey mour.

All tte commi.sion ers were in attendance, also Mr R. J. Clydesdale, secretary, and Mr R. Fennelly, C.E. The secretary informed the Trust that as the railways were consum ing as much water as the pipe will bring in, it was imperative that immediate steps should be taken to increase the supply. The discharge from the 3-inch pipe was absorbed by the engines, which left none for the tank. When there was a full pressur...

TALLAROOK. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

TALLAROOK. A very pleasant afternoon was spent on the Tall4rook court on Saturday last, the occasion t.eing a visit from the Seymour club. The members of the Tallarook, in their usual hospitable manner, did their utmost to ensure the enjoyment of their guests, and needless to say their efforts were entirely successful. Although this was practically their first game the Seymour club showed out well, gaining the match by 21 games, which is highly creditable, considering the prowess of their opponentts. The visiting ladies (Mesdames Minogue and Powling) were in a large measure responsible fr the victory by wvinning their set 9-games to 1. Messrs H. A.

Seymour Water Supply TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

Seymour Water Supply TO THE EDITOR OF THE x-PRESS. *Sir. -t has become a perennial local topic of heated discussion why, in a place like this, where there is water in abundance, at that very period of the year when man and beast need it constantly-on the hottest nights, and sometimes por tions of days, when the heat is per sistent, and the north winds un. merciful-the ratepayer's supply must be cut off for ten hours at a stretch. And it is amazing that in an old well-established town, with a population of three thousand souls, only sixty miles from Mel bourne, and any amount of the beet water in the hills above us, and the biggest river in Victoria practically running through the town-and sometimes flooding it, we must in termittently be dry as the desert as soon as summer conies. It is simply a wonder that simmering public in. dignation does not burst out with an irresistible demand for progress and improvement. Last Wednes day week was about the hottest day of the year so far. Inf...
