IMPORTANCE OF WATER TO CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 March 1914
IMPORTANCE OF WATER TO CROPS. Experiments conducted for the past fourteen years have led to the follow ing conclusions of interest to the prao tical farmer in the matter of rotation of crops. Potatoes require the least water, and leave the subsoil rich in moisture. Thliy theiefore leave the soil in a more favorable condition for subsaeunt crops, provided that the getting in of the potatoes be not un duly delayed and that nitrogen be add ed to the soil in a readily assimilable form. Peas are another crop which absorb little moisture from the soil; oats, on the other hand, take .up: much. As far as the moisture of the soil is con cerned, it is better to grow wheat after rye than rye after wheat. Clover ex hausts the moisture of the soil in the highest degree. Thus in dry years, a crop sown after clover will find the con ditions of the soil unfavourable and will develop slowly. Oh, could there in this world be found Some little spot of happy ground, Without the village tattling-Hones

FEEDING DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 March 1914
FEEDING DAIRY COWS. The English Field says:-The increas ed prominence tha.t is given to the ques tion of feeding dairy cows is indioative of the growing importance of dairy farm ing and of the closer attention that is devoted to economy in productien. The experiments carried out at the agricuI turil colleges, and partioularly at; the Armstrong, the Wye, and the Hau per Adams Colleges, havei ntonsified, if they did not actually originate, the wider interest that is now manifested ;a this subject. It is evident that the teaching ,f the college experiments has not been ig nored north of the Tweed. The Scot tish farmer is no exceptieii in that he does not change his methods quickly or twithout a prospect of resulting benefit; but like his neighbors in the South, he is eager to discover a means C econo minising expenditure and augu enonting income. While he does not put aside the plans evolved from long experlence, under the peculiar conditions of his holding, he is ever on the look-out ...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 March 1914
SOF RURAL INTEBREST (By "Rusticus.") Yet another contribution to the seem ingly endless discussion of bitter pit in apples has been made available in the second report by MIr. D. M'Alpine, who was appointed by the Federal Go vernment and the Government of Vic toria to investigate the disease. In it Mir. McAljiuns c iscusses the theory that bitter pit is caused by poison, sucoh as spraying with arsenical compounds, and gives evidence in support. The true cause, he thinks, lies in the fluctuating conditions of temperature and humid ity, which produce irregularities in the transpiration, and, in the. case of the growing apple, derangement also of the vascular network. It is a functional '.disturlance of portions of the tissue, as in the case of cancer, and not the wholesale shrivellihng, drying and with ering due to the failure of the supply of water to. the apple as a whole or its 'uithdrawal. Mr. M'Alpine adds that cold storage experiments have conclus ively proved that if apples are...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 March 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (From Our Special Correspondent) Who shall longer contend that wo men should not have a say in the mak inig of laws, and generally regulating matters pertaining to the public weal? The fourteenth annual conference of the Australasian Women'r Association has shown, them capable of taking very sane views of questions that are in the forefront of progressive measures for the betterment of people and institu tions. Eugenics, than which there is nothing more important among the developments of modern striving for greater efficienoy was handled in a commendably common sense manner. The need for a wider knowledge of the ravages of a disease which is respon sible for the condition of 75 per cent. of the inmates of Victorian asylums, and which in other respeots contributes to an immeasurable extent to the mis ery and unfitness of humanity, was re cognised by these ladies. And there were many other similar matters dis cussed, and the discussions disclosed a breadth of outlook...

The Druids were the irst society to give away £1,000 for is.

A Worker's Festered Hand. NO BETTER AFTER OPERATION. OBSTINATE SORE YIELDS TO ZAM-BUK. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 March 1914
A Worker's Festered Hand. -0 No BETTER AFTER OPERATION. -o -0 - OBSTINATE SORE YIELDS TO ZAM-BUK. Mr M. Truscott, of 92 Wittenoon-street Boulder, W.A., suffered severely from a nasty festering sore which spread all over the back of-his hand. Until he came to use Zam-Buk the hand showed no signs of healing. " My husband," said Mrs Truscott, " one day knocked the back of his hand and got a small wound. Thinking the injury was but a tiifing one, he took no notice of it, with the result that, within a day or two, it broke out into a nasty running sore. This gradually began to spread all over the back of the hand, and it became extremely inflamed and painful " In spite of the many different pre parations which we used the ihifamma tion appeared to get -worse every day, and the sore never showed any sign of healing. A doctor was consulted, but as the ointment prescribed was used without effect, he decided to operate on the hand, and scraped it. But this also proved in effective. The nasty...
ST HELENS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 March 1914
ST HELENS. From Our Own Correspondent. On Wednesday last the resi dents of St. Helens were much alarmed by a bush fire-which broke out on the property -of Mr M. Sherlock. At about mid-day, Mr Sherlock's son noticed flames in the paddock and gave the alarm. A man in the employ of Mr Sher lock, had been burning off timber a day or so previously and it is thought that a spark from a smoul dering log started it. The men of the district soon gathered. Many had arranged to attend a picnic being held at Codrington, and some indeed had already set out, but on seeing the progress the fire was making, they unselfishly de termined to give up their after noon's pleasure and fight the fire. Fanned by a north-westerly wind, the fire quickly made headway. Now it crept through the grass, and again it ran up a gaunt gum tree like a flash. The fire fighters mastered the fire before it had left the paddock it started in, and were congratulating themselves on their escape, when suddenly a spark from a ...
