THE GARDEN. THINGS TO GROW, AND HOW TO GROW THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

THE GARDEN. THINGS TO GROW, AND HOW TO GRjOW THEM. (By -''Agricola.") A week ago to-day I spent three of the most interesting and instructive hours I have enjoyed for a long pe riod. A floricultural authority gave me an opportunity to share, for the evening, the genial company of him self and his charming wife, and to ■ delve freely into his literary treasures.' I arrived at 8, and when the clock struck. 11 it seemed that only a few minutes had passed since 1 placed my old walking stick in the hallstand. j Like all men who are masters of ■their subjects, he appeared to derive a real- pleasure from the fact that he was in a position to augment the var ied fund of information which I am always striving to increase, and no de tail was so small that he would not give it due consideration. He had books here, there, and every where. Most of them had rendered good service; many were published away back in the early part of last century, and some there were that money could not buy, not bec...

LUCERNE AS AN IMPROVER OF WORN-OUT LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

LUCERNE AS AN IMPROVER OF WORN-OUT LAND. From time to time we have pub lished much mi or in a.1'1 on regarding the value of lucerne as a fodder crop. But we are alraid that many farmers regard it as a crop which can only be grown on the richest laud. Tins is not the case, for lucerne has been grown in tho sand before now. Mr H. J acob, a Mildura farmer, gives his experience with lucerne on a cropped-ouit iield. He writes:— '•Having preivously had good crops of maize by the application of farm yard manure, I have this season had one, if not the best, under another system of treatment. This crop grew on an average nine or ten feet 111 Weighty It was the healthiest and 'arkesfc green possible, and not the lightest sign of yellow leaf underneath, /he following are the facts concern ing this crop:—In altering my land l had occasion to plough up an acre of laud wjiich had been under lucerne for fifteen years.

GRAFTING TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

GRAFTING TREES. Generally speaking, the most suitable time for grafung is in the spring, just when the buds on the trees to be grafted, show signs of swelling. The ioliowing rules siiould be observed: — 1. Cut off the shoots from which the scions or grafts are to be made before mey start growing, keeping them in a cool cellar or shed until wanted. 2. in preparing the scions, cut them into lengths of 4 to (3in., each carrying three or four buds, and from i to iin thick. 3. In heading back the trees, not to shorten to the trunk, or even to the main branches, but cut back to wood ranging from lin. to 3in in diameter. 4. Pare every cut surface smooth with a sharp knife.. 5. After inserting grafts by one of the methods herewith described, cover witli clay or wax. 6. If hot wax is used, rub a thin film of clay on the cut surfaces . before applying it. This serves the double purpose of keeping the shoot moist and preventing ulis tering. GRAFTING LARGE TllEES.. The work may be done by one o...

CHAPTER XVIII. AN UNWILLING WITNESS, WHOSE WORDS WERE OF GRAVE IMPORT. Scarcely twentj minutes elapsed be fore the groom came to tell Mr. Hetherington that the inspector and a constable were examing the body, and he then left the house and pro ceeded at a rapid pace to join them. "This is a sad affair, inspector," he said. "Yes, sir, I'm afraid there's been foul play. I'll have the body remov ed to the house. Ah, here comes the doctor. I sent my man to the vicar age for him," he replied, as the doc tor, who was to have had charge of Fitzpatrick's practice during his ab sence, came towards them. "Then I must hasten home. I do not wish Mrs. Hetherington or my daughter to hear of this from any one else and Mr. Hetherington went towards the gate, pausing on the way to speak to Dr. Blake, who Beemed very much upset. "It's an awful affair," he said. "Shocking ; but I have to break the news to my daughter," he replied scarcely pausing to exchange these few words. On arriving at the Hall, h...

CHAPTER XVII. THE WORK OF A MOMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

CHAPTER XVII. THE WORK OP A MOMENT. "I'll have my revenge." The speaker was Therese Morris, She was seated in her bed room, looking out of the window into the garden. Her grandmother supposed she was in bed. She had complained • of headache and gone to her room about nine o'clock, begging that she j might not be disturbed, p.nd now she was gazing into the gathering dark ness. It had been a dull, heavy day,..and towards evening the clouds had gathered black and threatening, and now at a quarter to ten it was more, like midnight. "A pretty bridal eve," the girl muttered. Then rising, she wrapped herself in a long dark cloak, and putting on a snug toqlie she .went towards a drawer, out of which she took a dagger of foreign workman ship, and hiding it under her cloak, she unlocked her door, and stepping on to the landing, she listened. But there was no sign of either her grandmother or the servants, so re moving the key, she locked the door outside, then stole softly down the stairs, pa...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

(By "Ambrosiiie.") Of all their household tasks, women seem to have the most dread of-'dish washing. "I do not mind the cook • ing," we often hear them say, "but 1 simply cannot stand to wash the dishes after .1 am through eating." Like many other ills from which we suffer in this troublesome world of ours, tis thinking makes them so." Mr. Donley / would- probably tell us that Shake speare never bad to wash the ensues, and anyhow he didn't say that about this particular form of trouble. But for all -that it's the getting at it that is the hardest part. \Y:th proper pre paration and plenty of soap and hot wacer, there is no need of such unholy dread of this familiar duty. In the first place, when you disli the food for the table, fill each pot '.and pan half full of hot water" and let them stand on the back of the stove or rang© Until you are ready to attend to'them. In clearing' the table after the meat wipe -the plates and platters with a piece of soft paper—old newspaper will do—a...

CHAPTER XVI.—(Continued.) Meanwhile Dr. FitzpatncB nad Walked rapidly through the park, thinking what a hash he had made of matters. He had lost Meg through his own carelessness and undue haste to seize the riches that dazzled him, and he swore at himself. But was it too late ? He could still make terms with Hetherington. It would be useless to ask him to ac knowledge his marriage with Meg's mother, but he could compel him to give him half the diamonds and the dowry that Pat was to have had. The world need never know the truth and for his silence Josh Hetherington would give half of what he was worth. They could say Pat had ' changed her mind at the eleventh hour. He knew she would be glad to be rid of him. Yes, he would go to Mount House and see Meg at once. © It was little more than five o'clock. Her uncl...

NITROGEN IN ARABLE SOILS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

NITROGEN IN ARABLE SOILS. The question of the relative value of "fallow," and .particularly its effect on the stock of nitrogen in the soil in comparison witfh the increase of soil nitrogen produced by a green crop ploughed under, has been much dis cussed in recenit years by Continental agricultural expert®. ' It is generally admitted that a fallow is a necessary process in tlie cultiva tion of some soil in older to improve their physical cond-tion. But it is still questionable whether in medium soils a fallow could not be replaced with advantage by a green crop. The results of scientific experi- 1 ments, - which have been for the most , part confined to laboratory experi ments, have not led to'definite conclii-1 s.ons on this point. Recently, however, fresh' light has been thrown upon it by a study of the work of bacteria in falolw land. ! No one has so far succeeded in dis- I covering with any precision to what ex cent these bacteria have the capac ity of accumulating nitrogen. It...

SCRATCHINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

SCRATCH INGS. The large 5000 egg incubatcu ---a.de to the order of the South Australian I .Governmentj is to be installed at' the { Parafield Poultry Station about the end.of June. The test recently has been a severe one, as it was housed in an iron shed, where no reliable regu larity of temperature could be guaran teed. Some 400 eggs, which were sent by rail, were tried. Of these/ about 50 were infertile, and some were bro ken during the test, whilst the hatch resulted in 220- fine, healthy chickens putting- in an appearance, which is considered by the poultry expert to be satisfactory when the conditions governing the test are taken into ac- ' count.

DEVELOPING THE DAIRY HEIFER [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

DEVELOPING THE DAIRY HEIFER More and more, tnoughtful dairy men are coming to realise that in ord er to have profitable herds they must raise an ddevelop their own cows. Men who have good cows are not anxious to part with them, and the dairyman who depends upon the ipurehasa of mature cows to keep up Ins herd is forced to pay someone a handsome pro fit for raising them, or else be eon tent with the cul.'s of other herds. Even when he pays the high price, lie is no: certain that the cows he buy.-> will prove a profitable investment. HOME REARING ; It will be found much cheaper and more certain for the average dairy man to raise his own cows than to pay someone a. profit for raising hem for him. It is a fact that- the best pro ducing herds in the country have been bred and raised by the men who own item. The lieifer calves raised should be those from the best cows, and at least one-sistli as many heifers should bo raised as there are cows in the herd. It is estimated that on au ave...

VALUE OF THE SCALE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

VALUE OF THE SCALE. Farmers are extremely lax in keep ing any kind of accounts. It might be thought that self-interest would dictate that they should know ex actly the profits they make each year. Yet to ascertain this it is es sential that there be a taking of stock once a year ; and we will guarantee that there is hardly one farmer out of any hundred who does this. Dairy farmers are equally lax, in not knowing what their cows do in the way of milk or butter produc tion, in not knowing the cost of feed, or how much each cow con sumes per day. It seems a very difficult matter to g.et dairymen to appreciate the fact that dairying is a manufacturing business ; and that to make money at it, it is first necessary to know exactly what each item costs, thus practicing economies where needed. Until the cost of production is known, it is impossible to curtail or lop off the unprofitable items. It is very evident that one of the first things that must be done is to weigh the milk of each cow...

RUGGING COWS IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

BUGGING COWS iN WINTER. I In cold weather, particularly during July, August, and September, consider ation mignt well be devoted by dairy men in cool districts to tlie question of rugging or sheltering milking cattle. The owners of large herds are not in need of tlie reminder, for they have learned by experience that when cows are kept warm, the food they consume, instead of being utilised to maintain bod-iy heat, is more large ly devoted ,o the product-ion of milk, it is tho owners of one or two cows or even of the small herd, who have yet to realise the real value of shelter and to lind that there is profit in the outlay. Many, of these men take care of tiieir horses during the cold of win ter, but bestow lit Je thought upon their cows, being either regardless or ignorant of the direct loss they are suffering through reduced milk yields. That much loss does occur, tlie regu lar practice of the regular dairjman is evidence. A New South VVales Government expert draws attention to th...

There can be no doubt that a com- 5 pie e oliaugo for a- dairy herd is con ducive to better results, and if the average cow-paddock were divided into small areas, so that, tho cows would be continually moving 011 to clean ground, the increased milk yield would soon compensato for tho on-lay in extra fencing.

THE FARM AND DAIRY. GRAZING LUCERNE. THE DANGER OF BLOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 27 August 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. V GRAZING- LUCERNE. THE DANGER OP BLOAT. In view of the increased use of this splendid fodder plant, the opin ion of Mr. Alexander, the manager of a large estate near lnverell, in New South Wales (where 15 silos are in use), on the danger of cattle graz ing on lucerne, is worth noting,. He holds that the feeding off of lu cerne by stock is always attended with a certain amount of risk of loss by tympanitis or bloat. In fact, dur ing certain periods of the plant's growth its action on the cow is so active and virulent as to resemble prussic acid poisoning of cattle fed on immature sorghum. A remarkable thing about it is the fact that this extreme effect is pro duced for perhaps only two or three days in the plant's growth, which explains why cattle gsazing in one paddock may suffer badly from bloat while those in the next may be im mune, although the lucerne appears to he in exactly the same stage of growth in both. The manager be lieves that the importance of luc...
