THE FARM. OLD METHODS AND NEW.—THE DEMANDS OF MODERN FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 19 September 1925
THE FAUM. OLD METHODS AND NEW.—THE DEMANDS OF MODERN FARMING. . The essential difference between the new methods of farming and the old is that the old rule-of-thumb me- ■ thods are heing superseded by those which are. based on a study of the conditions under which crops grow, and of the relationship of the grow ing plant to soil and air and water. These new methods have become necessary because of the changed conditions under which farming is carried on. The number of people who have to be supplied with food is continually and rapidly increasing, competition is getting keener, the available land of good quality is dim inishing, and poorer land or land in a less favourable climate has to be opened up, and the need has arisen for utilising to the utmost the re sources of the soil. This is only poss ible by the application of principles which science has discovered. This dees not mean "that the farmer must necessarily be a scientific man, but it is becoming every day more and more nec...

GAY OLD DOG. 122 YEARS OLDER THAN HIS ELEVENTH WIFE. HAS A SON OF 93 SUMMERS. A cable message from London says tliat Zarc Agha, of Constantinople, 149 years of age, reputed to be the oldest man alive, gleefully accepted an offer from the Constantinople au thorities to join the staff of the guards of Imperial palaces. Agha enjoys extraordinarily good health, though when his doctor com pelled him to forego travelling, he was much annoyed, declaring that there would not he much wrong with him if he had not been compelled to eat quantities of macaroni in Italy re cently. Agha has been married eleven times and liis present wife is 27 years of age. The only member of the family who gives him any trouble is a son who is 93 and who thinks he is too old to earn a livelihood. Agha does not see why he should keep his son, and says, "If I can get a job, so can he."

The Song I Want to Sing. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 19 September 1925
The Song I Want to Sing. No classic Muse my strain inspires To .wizardry of flashing Song In minor key the Minstrel quires, Where lordly numbers weep along. The God.Iike gift of deathless verse That crowns the Poet o'er the King I strive, withal for, to rehearse The Song I want to sing. For stately lay of Court or Camp, Or sensuous Oriental theme I would not burn the midnight lamp Or dream the Poet's dream. At times I see my dream.song shine As radiant as a flashing wing, The clarion Labor Song of mine M^ soul is fain to sing. At eve I don my Poet's shole, The day in splendour dying, yVhere twll.ight spreads its mystic scroll O'er homing birds, fast flying. I watch the black swans westward wing; I chime their plaintive murmuring And then I pray for grace to sing The Song I yet will sing. . —BLACKBOY. Grabben Gullen:
GENERAL HINTS. (From "Motor Life.") A Flexible Petrol Gauge. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 19 September 1925
GEXKBAL 1IIXTS. (From "Motor Life."). Flexible Petrol Gauge. The petrol tank on many cars have fillers so placed that it is impossible to insert an ordinary dipstick owing to the'contour of the filler. One can therefore make a flexible one. Procure a piece of narrow bicycle chain about 16 inches long, and with the pins ex j actly half an inch apart from centre to centre. Having thoroughly cleans ed it by successive washings in ker osene and petrol, work the chain about link by link until it is perfect ly supple. 1 . With the tank empty fill up, a quart at a time, insert the dipper, and note at which pin the petrol level appears. With this gauge one can measure eas ily to about a pint at any moment, which is quite good enough for all ordinary purposes. Preserving Nickel Plate. An effective polish for nickel plate which also protects it against water, is a paste made from whiting mixed with vaseline. If it is required mere ly to protect the surface from water the following preparation...

(Published by Arrangement). "NATIONAL DISGRACE." "All lionest-minded Federal Dis trict Attorneys in New York City, or any other big centre of population, know that they cannot enforce the Prohibition Act," says the New York "World," in u leading article. "The overwhelming majority of the popula tion is against the act.'' The judges don't like it, the juries don't like it, the police don'like it. "When you make a crime o£ an Act; that, a community does not regard us a crime, then if- you are going to enforce your law you have to do things which are contrary t'o the spVr it of all sound law. All the normal elements of justice disappear; the law is not universal; it is not the same for all. "The result is what we see: Hypoc risy so deep and pervading that it has become a national disgrace; cor ruption so widespread that it has al most taken for granted; lawlessness and contempt for law which are unique in ordered, civilised societies." Mr. H. D. McLelland, Chief Inspec tor of Schools, ...
WEATHER REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 19 September 1925
WEATHER REPORT. ! The weather for the past week has ■ not been all that could be desired for ; spring time, although we have had ' several showers, and at time of writ . ing it is raining. The mornings have been cold and frosty with a cold wind j blowing. ' At time of writing (Thursday) we nave been having intermittent show, ers of snow all day long, evidently a finish to the boisterous weather we ba\e^ been having for the past few days," the wind being bitterlv cold, and retarding the growth of* spring grass. As is usually the case at this time of year, after having the snow showers we may expect milder weath er in the near future.
ENTERPRISING DUNCAN BROS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 19 September 1925
ENTERPRISING DUNCAN BROS. During the week Messrs. Duncan Bros., who are among, or at least are, our most progressive farmers, have been carting to the railway several trucks of chaff, and have at time of writing completed loading the third truck, approximately 35 tons, and same has been dispatched to market. Quite a coincidence that just two years ago, when our local butter fac tory was opened and ready to receive supplies of cream, Messrs. Duncan Bros, were the lirst to deliver a can to 'the factory, and have been going since without a stop through two win ters. If a few more of our local far . mers would use the same amount of ; energy and take the same interest in their district as this pair of young men do then we would be able to say that our district was doing what is ; really expected of it. Again may we use the slogan "PRO DUCE MORE."

PASTORAL. TAPEWORMS IN SHEEP.—SYMPTOMS AND TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 19 September 1925
PASTORAL. TAPEWORMS IN SHEEP.—SYMP. TOMS AND TREATMENT. The tapeworm most commonly found infesting sheep in this country is "jVIoniezia expansa." This worm lives in the small intestine, and attains a length of 15 feet or more. Young lambs are chiefly infested, geierally in the autumn; as many as ten or more tapeworms may he found in a single lamb. The worm is white and flat.in appearance and made up of In dividual segments, . which are broader than they are long. Each segment de 've'.ops a complete set of reproductive organs. The last segments, which con tain many eggs, break off from the rest of the body and may be discern, ed in the faeces. As nothing is yet known of the cys tic form and intermediary host, the life history ras not been determined. Generally speaking, tapeworms are not responsible for great mortality among sheep in this country. When' lambs are heavily infested the mech anical obstruction caused by the pre tence of the worms and the irrita tion set up interferes se...
