ASHES AS A SORT OF POTASH. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 April 1915

ASHES AS A SORT OF POTASH. Potash is one of the chief manures required in the garden, and it is also one of tho most expensive to purchase. The present European war has also hail an effect upon potash supplies, aa we chiefly depended upon Germany for our supply. It has been found, how ever, that tho ashes of hedge trimmings and other vegetable refuse, which usu ally collects very freoly in a garden, is a valuable source of potash, and usu ally contains from 8 to 12 per cent, of this element. The potash contained in"'aBhes is very, soluble, being-in the form' of carbon ate; tho consequence is that the ashes to have full value, must bo kept dry. It has been found that a light ohoiver is sufficient to wash out one-half of the potash, and reduce the percentage from eight to ten, to four or five. The best method is, of course, to ! store the ashes dry until they are re quired. If this is not possible, they should be used as a top-dressing on K growing, crop. Crops that arc greatly assist...

EXPLOSIVES ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 April 1915

EXPLOSIVES ON THE FARM. Frequently thero aro boulders in our cultivation paddocks which are too largo to lift and put on a cart. Thesa are ploughed round year after year. If they are not too big they can bo got rid of by gelignite. To do this, take one plug of gelignite, attach a No. 0 cap and about three feet of tape fuse, place tho charge on top of the boulder, and cover tho charge with a "poultice" of inoist clay (writes a Nexv South Wales agricultural expert). Make a nick in tho end of the fuse and insert a small shaving of, 'gelignite, touch this with a match, auci~get -well away. The result of the explosion will bo that the boulder has"been split in I three or four pieces, and can then be easily thrown on a dray and dumped out of the paddock. This will prove that. direction, and not only upwards as is usually thought. Every man on tho laud knows what it is to put up a line of fenciug at a time when the ground is hard. Under such conditions the use of half a plug of gelignite f...

"MILITARISED" COMMERCE.

Ho asserts that for tho last thirty to forty years German trado and finance have left nothing un dono to secure complete economic vic tory ovor all other European countries, and he takes the picturesque view that Germany has "militarised" commerce very much in the same way as Prussia has militarised the whole of tho German Empire. In the oconomic war which Germany has long been waging on tho rest of Europo there aro to be found tho methods so characteristic of Ger man military warfare. First of all, a perfectly equipped and splendidly organised commercial spy system, of which tho army of Serman consuls and consular agents throughout tho world are the intelligent and highly trained scouts.
