CULTURE OF THE CARNATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 4 April 1907
CULTURE OF THE CARNATION. The simplest method of increasing the stock of any particular variety of carna tion is by means of layering. All who grow carnations will have noticed that during the summer, while the flower shoots were forming, a number of the growths or shoots developed at the base of the plant. The term 'layering' is used to indicate the method which is employed to make these shoots form roots, and so become independent plants. It is important to have the shoots lay ered in good time, so that they may be come well established and well rooted be fore the winter sets in. To carry out the work of layering, re move all the leaves on that portion of the stem of the shoot which is most con veniently brought to the ground, roughly, about 6in. from the end. Then, when all the shoots have been prepared in this way, with a sharp penknife make an upward cut from that portion of the stem whence the leaves have been removed. This cut must be made very carefully, ! otherwise one is l...

FARMYARD MANURE AND ITS APPLICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 4 April 1907
- FARMVARD MANURE AND ITS APPLICATION. It has been said that tillage Is ma nure,' and undoubtedly the fertility o£ our soils depends very largely upon the cultivation they receive; but to obtain a full crop we must have more than cul tivation; we must have plant food, and this food must be near the surface and within reach of the crops. With plant food and surface cultivation we have ideal conditions for a full crop. # With the failing fertility of our soils comes the questions: 'How can we make the most' of our plant food?' 'How ? can we best care for our farmyard ma * nure that we may obtain tho most from it?' Possibly we can the better under stand the care and application of ma nure by studying for a moment or two the natural conditions of our virgin .soils.

..Trail of the Serpent... 1 By JVC. E. BHA.D3DOKT. BOOK THE FIFTH. CHAPTER IV. | The Captain, the Chemist, and the Lasoar. In the drawing-room of a bouse in a small street leading out of Regent Street aro assembled, the morning after this opera-house recontre,- three people. It is almost difficult' to imagine three persons more dissimilar than those who compose this littlo group. On a sofa near the open window, at which the autumn breeze comes blowing in over boxes of dusty London flowers, reclines a Mntlomun. whose bronzed and bearded face, and the military style even of the loose morning undress which he wears, proclaim him to be a soldier. A very handsome face it is, this soldier's, although darlconed not a little by a tropical sun, and a good deal shrouded by the thick black moustache and beard which conceal the expression of the mouth, and detract from the individuality of the face. He is smoking a long cherry-stemmed pipe, the bowl of which rests on the floor. A short distance...

THE MILKING SHORTHORN. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 4 April 1907
THE MILKING SHORTHORN. The ubiquitous Shorthorn, says Pro fessor Primrose M'Connell, a' Well known authority in Great Britain, is .one of the most useful all-round animals of the cattle kind, and, perhaps, the breed is in most universal use, while for dairying purposes it lias come more and more into favor since the modern development of .the new milk trade. At the same time it is more than likely that the . average Shorthorn man does not realise what his cow is capable of doing, or how much she may be im proved. The average yield of milk of all cows of the United Kingdom is put at 450 gallons per head per annum; an or dinary good dairy will run to over 600 where the cows are milked for, say, ten months. iThe British Dairj' Farmers' Association some years ago fixed 850 for a registered Shorthorn, but I am credit ably informed that the Wye Agricultural College, in Kent, has graded Its herd of Shorthorns to 1000 gallons per head per Annum. It has been a common experi ence to come acro...
