PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 April 1914

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. Many devices have come under no tice from time to time to cope with the mice pest in the wheat or hay field. Biiilding the stack upon a raised platform does not answer the purpose; the mice will climb up the 'blocks up oi which the platform is built, run along underneath the platform boards, and so enter the stack. Enclosing the stack, as some farmers do, with fine wire netting, will also be found un suitable, as the mice will climb up the wire netting. The only successful method to keep them out is to enclose the stack with a fence of galvanised iron, either plain or corrugated, about two feet high. Let the iron into the ground to a depth of ofur inches, and place it in a slant ing position, pointing outwards from the stack, all around it; taking care to leave no open space at the cor ners; it will be -found impossible for mice to enter a stack thus protected.

FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 April 1914

FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. A matter which is very often ne ments. '['hey are so often allowed to glected on farms is the care of imple lie about the place in all weathers that their periods of usefulness are seriously curtailed. After an imple ment has done its first season's wor?: the owner should, when stowing ;t in its proper place, see that it is in or der, and if there are any defects he should make a note of them, or, if convenient, it is better to have such defects repaired at once. Then he' knows that his machine is ready for the next season's work. With such implements as the stripper or har vester, where belts are used, the belts bhould be removed and have a little oil rubbed on them, and be put away in a cool place. The seed drill is an implement that requires a lot of care. A little extra attention will often save two or three days' delay. Suco im plements as ploughs, harrows, culti vators, etc., which are of iron, do not require a shed so much, but a ...

MAKING FARMING PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 April 1914

MAKING FARMING PAY. We are all trying to make things pay, but we refuse to invest enough brains in the study of things so that we can make them pay. Farming everywhere, and in everything, is a deep question, one o fthe profound est. -It requires a lot of thought, study and good judgment to make it pay. Some must have an immediate .profit, and so they skin the land. Oth ers try to save expense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save ex pense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try' to save expense in secur ing good breeding stock, and so pro due cows theat do not giv the most profitable result. Others refuse to feed a good cow sufficiently to enable her to produce to her fullest capacity. All about us is this ever-present ques tion of .making things pay, and saving useless, not useful, expense. Surely there is neded a lot of wit and wisdom on the farm. When a man and a girl whisper to gether they are almost certainly say. ing nice things. When two women whisper together t...

HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 April 1914

HOW TO USE' FERTILISERS. The guiding principle. in the appli cation of manures is to use them as supplementary to the natural-soil re sources, and not as a main source bf fertility. Most good agricultural soils contain vast stores of dormant plant food, and the aim should be to develop as much as possible of this plant food latent in the soil by thorough cultiva tion, supplementing any deficiencies with fertilisers. What those deficien cies are can 'best 'be found out by ac Lual experiment, and, having deter mined them, the problem for each farmer and orchardist is to ascertain the most profitable and economic way of supplying the soil's needs. In all districts, with a light rainfall, super phosphate is likely to continue the most profitarble of all phosphatic man ures. In the wetter areas, however, especially on soils deficient in lime, basic slag, or Thomas' phosphate is a valuable adjunct to the production of good crops.

Kerang School Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 April 1914

Kerang School Committee. The first meeting of the newly elected committee was held on Monday last when there were present, the Rev. Mr Trin ham, Dr. M'Eniry and Messrs Geo. Haw thorne, G. W. Adams, Waddell, C. Whiting and J. Whitelaw, and the head teacher, Mr Nettleton, who acted as chairman. Mr Trinham was re-elected correspondent and treasurer, and Mr Hawthorne president. Mr Nettleton, in referring to the work done by the late committee, pointed out the position of honor the Kerang school occupied, hav ing been gazetted as having raised £665 for school inprovements since the inaugu ration of the school committee system. This was the highest amount obtained by any school. The £531 subscribed at Charlton was next on the list. When discussing the visit of the Minister of Education, arrangements were made to draw his attention to the residence of the head teacher which was considered totally unsuitable for a gentleman in his position. On the suggestion of Mr Haw thorne, it was agreed ...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE BRIDGE OVER THE NINE MILE CREEK. (To the Editor "Kerang New Times." [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914

CORRESPONDENCE. THE BRIDGE OVER THE NINE SMILE CREEK. (To the Editor "Kerang New Times." SSir,-I called the attention of the shire councillors to the dangerous state in the event of a flood in the creek of the em bankments on the three chain road to Echuca and on the two chain road at Kern's leading to Cohuna. Through negligence of (we will say) the council, the bridges have been allowed to get chocked and their carrying capacity- for water has become so small that for the purpose they are almost useless. _Both of these costly embankmeunt are bound to be seriously damaged the first flood we get. When they are reached very serious damage will be done to the land holders on the creek and on the Pyramid also all traffic stopped, the shire will be pub to great expense to repair, solely caused by. their neglect. It looks very much like nonsense when they say that the Water Commission should pay for the work. It proves that economy in the spending of the rateapyer's money is never thought...

When you comp to think that since the Bx~gade's in. auguration, in 1884, this was their first win, and a very creditable one at that, I think property holders and _personq -who have property at stake should have turned up and congratulated the "Baby Brigade" (as they were known at the demonstration) on its fine performance. I have learned that their success in winning one of the best prizes at the demo. was due to their strictly obey ing the captain's orders ...
