Rushing Back. Notwithstanding tho several warn ings given in these columns, and also by tbe Superintendent of the Great Cobar Limited, to men not to rush back to Cobar in search of work just yet, quite a number of men have already arrived bore by train, while others are eoming every day per me dium of bikes, shanks' pony, and various other forms of looomotion.

THE "COLONY" SYSTEM. Value. of Poultry Manure. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 17 March 1915

THE ' COLONY ' SYSTEM. Valuo. of Poultry Manure. Au aspect of tho 'Colony' system that was not touched upon in tho article uudor this. hoadlng,in last week's issuo of the 'Notes' is emphasisod in a pub lication of the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries just to hand from Great Britain. It is probable that few farmers realise that a hundrod hens ox the heavior breeds aro calculated to produce about four tons of moist manure per annum, [no uruisn vaiuo ox wnicn may no xuiriy ostimatod at £5 8s. 4d., or Is. Id. per bird. Those who combino poultry-keeping with other branches, such as orcharding and vegetnblo growing, could greatly benefit thoir soils by utilising this valu able by-product. Tho 'colony' systom provides an easy means of doing this. The method suggested is to include poul try in a system of rotation, the land being cultivated forvthree yearB follow ing its occupation by tho poultry, as it takes that period to exhaust the manure.

POULTRY. GOOD AND BAD LAYERS. Conformation as a Guide. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 17 March 1915

POULTRY. GOOD AND BAfc LAYERS. Conformation as a J3uido. The selection of Joying hens has hitherto beeu almost exclusively con finod to tho use of trap nests, single pen and other systems that aro moro or less mechnnical and limited in thoir ap plication. On tho other hand, selec tion by typo, conformation and other indications has been little understood and almost wholly neglccted. So comments the Poultry Expert iu an article in which ho discusses con formation as a guido in selecting good and bad layer*. Tho Mechanical Testing Systems. Obviously, ha says, the trap neBt and tho single pen are systems that can only be applied to a limited number of birds, and must, therofore, be almost entirely confined to breeding stock. Even under such limitations tho utility of these systems would bo increasod woro tho pullets that are subjected to tho tests selected as the result of somo ob servation of typo and conformation as indications of egg-production.

' ' X think it will be generally acceptod by most practical men that succossful dairying depends largoly on the four fundamental principles — breeding, feed ing, careful management, and last, but by no means least important, soloction.'
