SOUTHERN RIVERINA BERRIGAN DISTRICT. LARGE) WHEAT AREAS, A BOUNTIFUL. SEASON. No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

BBRRIGAN DISTRICT. LARGE) WHEAT AREAS, •A BOUNTIFUL. SEASON. -Rv "CASEIN." TsPn 1. Less than a quarter of a century ago Southern Riverina was largely devot ed to sheep, It has since become one of the most productive wheat areas in New South Wales. The land has been divided into farms ranging from 400 to 1500 acres. Skilful cultivation has given excellent results. That part of which Berrigan is the centre was the first area to receive attention. For many years after the Goulburn Valley had been profitably developed the ter ritory immediately north of the River Murray remained a succession of sheep runs. Notwithstanding the similarity of the soil to that of the Goulburn, Valley, . there was a general im pression . that the conditions were not favorable for " small hold ings. ■ About 25 years ago some of the more enterprising "Victorian farm ers decided on a trial of wheat grow ing. Those who claimed to liave a know ledge of the country predicted failure. The rainfall was said to be in...

BARBED WIRE GATEWAYS '" f\ ' ' — • METHOD OF FASTENING. The average barbed wire gateway ■ (says the.

DODDER IN CLOVER A PLANT PARASITE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

DODDER IN CLOVER A PLANT PARASITE. uodcier is the -most harmful seed to be found in samples of clover seed, es pecially those coming- from a foreign country. Its habits are very extraor dinary, the plant being purely parasitic. The seeds takes rather longer to ger minate than the clover with which it is sown, and the plant does not usually begin to grow until the clover has be come well established. The illustration shows the damage that dodder will bring* about in a clover crop which it attacks, tho plants being strangled and dying off in a short time. A thin, wiry stem appears above ground. It twines itself round the host plant (the clover). There, are no roots or leaves to the dodder plant; it derives the whole of its nutriment from the stem of the clover by means of suckers. 'Che flowers are very small and produce seed at the same time as the clover crop, but being small they are readily separated from the clover seed by machinery.

FEEDING BARLEY [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

FEEDING BARLEY s Malting barley intended for hay should -be cut well on the green side, as the Tipened awns are very liable to cause irritation and consequent trouble when the chaff is fed to horses. If this has not been done, the only safe method is to thoroughly steam the chaif to soften the awns before use. Barley is considered a good feed for horses, but if they are to get the full benefit it should be crushed or bruised; otherwise, owing to hard ness, a good deal* will pass through undigested. It would be well to change horses from maize to barley gradually, replacing a quarter of the maize by barley at first, and slowly increasing the amount of barley. To get the equivalent of six quarts of maize, eight quarts of barley would be required.

Tho copper miners at Caiumet have been :>n strike for months, and.as many families were starving, the cha ritable organisations arranged a Christ mas Festival for 500 children at Italian Hill. There was a Christmas tree de corated with food and toys, and the children with their parents enjoyed the treat immensely. The .managers invit ed the children to approach the tree, which was close to the stage, to receive their gifts. The children crowded for ward, and at this moment a bearded man thrust his head through the door and shouted "Fire!" The cry was instantly taken up, and mad rush took place for the exits.

Immortal Cliess. By THOMAS WINTER WOOD. (From the B.C.M.) Beloved chess, what art thou thus to claim Thy right and title to immortal fame? Whence spring thy charms whilst claiming thus to vie With > Heaven'e own store of things which -never die? What talisman hast thou within thy power Thus to beguile and bless the passing hour? Thus with unmingled purity to please The varying humors of thy devotees? Ever around thee flock thy handmaids fair, With willing hearts their destined role to . share: • Keen enterprise' inspires the lordly fray Where phantom valor tracks a phantom prey: Faith guides the finger to each chosen piece, Whilst Hope's exulting whispers never cease. Glad Emulation deftly points the goal Where Triumph calls, and Pleasure crowns the whole. ' Yea, thou hast charmed the world through ages long, Lone hearths, bright homes, and palaces among: From maiden fair to haughty linight of war— 'Neath Crescent, Cross, and mighty scimitar: But monarchs pass, and dynasties deca...

Chess Notes [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

Chess Notes When the Darniey marriage was planned in 1565 (writes Fronde in his History of Eng land), Lord Darniey "and his mother, Lady Lennox, were living in England. It was only by a false story that they obtained permis sion to ,travel to Scotland. After they were gone Elizabeth.= learnt of the proposed mar riage. 'Paul de Foix (the French Ambassador) one day at the end of May found Queen Eliza beth in her room playing chess. "Madam,'' he said to her, "you have before you the game of life. You lose a Pawn; it seems a small matter; but with the Pawn you lose the game." "I see your meanf^ng," she answered. "Lord Darniey is but a Pawn, but unless I look to it I shall bev checkmated."
