TIME FOR RECREATION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914
TIME FOR RECREATION. For the niatural development of a hhman being work, play, and religious observation are necessary. _ On the farm the day's work is usually long and when it continues for six days in the week there is no time for recrea- tion, which results in its being stolen from Sunday, attending football, games, etc. The Country Life Com -mittee, which reported at the Tri-State Grain Growers' Convention, urged that this be remedied by making Saturday afternoon a half-holiday. The com mittoo also- urged that the teacher and minister iOne a lead in this--re creation. The country life problem is largely a young people's problem. They must be interested in farming and farm life, or they will leave the farm. Time.f for rccoration and religious life will do much to make the farm a desirable place. The committee also suggested that this Saturday afternoon would be a good time for farmers to get together for considering co-operative enter prises. The comnmttee emphasised the fact tha...

PIGS SHOULD HAVE PURE WATER [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914
PIGS SHOULD HAVE PURE WATER Every farm should be provided with some means of furnishing pure, clean, and cool water for the pigs. Slob food will not answer for both food and drink. Where slop is fed like a thick mush, as it should be, pigs will seek drinking water between meals; and if the slop is too watery, the pigs, in trying to pick out the solids will swal= ?ow more of the liquid than is good for -. Ileir digestion. Stock breeders who have observed, slaim that the old idea that -pigs do rot require much water.is wrong. ."If s ine are placed where they can se cure plenty of fresh, clean water, they drink a great deal of it during the day, and especially in the evening. If you watch your. pigs when they are eating, you will find. they eat awhile and then take a few swallows of wa ter, after which they go ba.:k to the feed. They will go back and forth to a pig waterer all day. You will he astonished to see how much water they drink when they get all the clean wa ter they wish, and...

SULPHUR AND LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914
SULPHUR AND LIME. The effect of sulphur and lime upon :liseases of cereals and roots was referr ed to in a paper by Walter E. Col lingo before the British Association for the Advancement of Science. In Warwickshiro, in 1906, he said his attention was directed to some 40 or 50 aores of wheat attacked by a disease locally known as "may-sick.' In various parts of the field, either in large circular patches or' in stragg ling lines, the wheat plants were turn ing yellow in the leaf, and had at tamined a height only about half of that of the non-diseased plants. Later in the season the plants had a scorched appearance, very little growth took place, they. never developed cars, and were of little use as straw. Other crops, including potatoes and mangolds, were attacked in a similar manner. ' Experinients with. varying quantities of sulphur, and lime- and sulphur show ed that sulphur sown in the autumn for spring sowings, or in the spring for autumn sowings, at the rate of about 6 cwt. per...

POULTRY PICKINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914
POULTRY PIC KIS. S - a The latet %iing in trap ,nes,. was oi view at the recent Crystal Ia:aiee Sil)w in London. It was ciuimcd for itL.ha it was the only perfect automatic trai, nest on the market. lWhen the lie, enters the nest the entrance door re mains open. Upon the hen laying an egg the action of the egg roll: g ulo,. closes the entrance door andi opens the exit door. The hen is then iree to walk out. When the hen leaves the nest her action in doing so closes thi exit door and at the same.time opens the entrance door, leaving the nest free for the next bird to enter. 'lThe working of the box is quite automnitio. Should the hen not lay an egg she is free to walk out the way she entered, without being trapped. Such is the description, but at this distance we ask what happens if two or more hens crowd in at once? In order to test the eating capacity of the average hen, a number of ex haustivo experiments were carried out at the Maine Experimenofal Station, United States. In the c...

After many years he returned to his native village, thinking how surprised the old folk would be. He walked along the village street in his smart-looking uniform, his heart beating fast as he neared- the old homne. Opening the gate, Jhe walked up the gravel path. Just then a ferocious dog rushed out and grabbed his leg. Shaking the dog off, he speedily re gained the road, and was standing at the other side of the fence when his father cainme out.. "Ah, my sonl" said - the old man. Like the' prodigal, you have return ed " "Yes," growled the soldier, ."'but it's your dog that's enjoyed the fatted calf I"
THE DAIRY INDUSTRY IN SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914
THE DAIRY INDUSTRY IN SCOTLAND. According to Professor Wright, Glas gow, tho dairy industry does not make up more than' about one-fifth -pait of the entire fabric of Scotch agriculture. This result hoe brings out by estimat ing tho gross value of the whold dairy prcduce of Scotland for one year at-a littlo under £4,000,000, of the cereal crops at about £8S,500,000, the green :orops at £5,500,000, and hay at about £3,500,000. Looking at the matter from another point of view, Mr. Wright estimated that the stock kept for dairy purposes would represent only about one-fifth of the value of the en tire live stock.

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914
rUi F TOICS. (By "Flemington. ") Cabled reports show that Bullawarra reached England safe and sound, after a good trip. Thus the Australian crack has nearly 12 months in front of him in which to acclimatise and otherwise pre pare for the Liverpool Grand National, the greatest cross-country event in the world. One's sympathy naturally goes with Bullawarra, but there can be no dtnying that he will be set a, great taslt. In the. first place, he will, as previously suggested, need to unlearn a good deal of what he has been taught in Australia. Jumping fences in Eng land is not quite the saite thing as in this country. Bullawarra will have to be schooled to adapt himself to the changed conditions, and the danger is that this will not be an easy matter. Still, the gelding has plenty of time in which to pick up -the necessary know ledge of the English obstacles, and as II. EIarrison declares Bullawarra to be one of the most intelligent he has ever had through his hands, we can at least hop...
