FEEDING STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 16 July 1883

FEEDING STOCK. An old practical farmer remarked to nie once that it takes a great deal less feed to keep stock in warm,,comfort able stables. He could not tell the reason for it, but he knew it was a fact. Practice had taught him this Science teaches us that it takes a considerable portion of the food to keep up the animal hest and takes a lesser or greater portion according to the warmth and condition of the quarters in which the stock is placed. He should feed certain food to obtain certain results Food should be given growing animals that will make muscle and bone; to work animals that will make strength; to fatten animals that will produce fat; and for milk, food that will produce milk. Science can only teach the farmer the value of food and how to feed them, not to de stroy the constituent parts of each food given, and thereby save a great loss. I would adviso every farmer to study science in farming, and acquire a tho rough knowledge of all its branches. Correspondent South an...

MELBOURNE. (ro ;OUR OWRN ORonEsPONDsrT.) Wednesday. The city was thrown in to a state 'ea great excitement on Thursday: last, if consequence of .certain:, telegramatt? which was made' public through .the columns of the "Herald," to the effect that war between England and France was imminent. The particulars of the case, which have of coures are this be coma known to everybody, are certainly, to say the least of it, a direct breach of the law of unations on the part of France, and it still seems probable, despite the off-hand explanation of the French Government that England will have to avenge the insult which has been put upon her by her repreantative and subjects. The latest news seems to indicate hostile intentions on the part of England, but the policy of France must be otherwise, seeing firstly, that she is already engaged in two potty quarrels, and further, that her resources have already been so drained by her former defeat, that peace with a potent power, such as England, is...

THE SUEZ CANAL QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 19 July 1883

THE SUEZ GANAL QU.ESTION. (Ars n THE AGE). A second canal across the Isthmus of Suez is a desideratum which. forced itself upon the serious consideration- of shipowners and others engagedi in the trade. For the. last few years they have been. dissatified with arrange ments, the loss of time, the expense ineurred and other' inconveniences, owing to the present canal being far too small for the requirements of trafflo. A vessel in sailingat the regu lation speed of 6 miles an hour with out any stoppages could pass through the canal from sea to sea in about 16 or 18 hours, but owing to the fact that in most places two vessels cannot pass one another, except where sidings are out into the banks for the purpose, the time occupied in passing through is generally from 40 to 48 hours. In the case of a vessel happening to take the ground, she:necessarily delays the traffic both ways until she is got off. The high taritff is another cause for com plaint, the minimnm rate being fixedat 10 fran...
