THIS WAR OX1' TUB FUTURE. A. THIUUULH PROSPECT "WITH A 1!AY OF 1101*13. Mr. Hudson Maxim lias been specu lating about tlio terrible possibilities ot war in tho near future, when, if tbo present extraordinary rate of scientific development continues, wc shall have our aerial battleships, our .cruisers, our iorpedo boats, and torpedo boat de stroyers. The picture ho baa drawn is at first sight dismaying in the ex treme, hilt out of it is evolved a ray of hone, for ho is confident that the over-increasing potency of the engines of destruction, combined with a cor- , responding increase in cost of produc tion, is the best guarantee of univer sal neace that wo could have. t 1 Although tho value of tho Hying niacliino in future wars will be mainly as a scouting craft, ho says, still its importance for that service alone _ is hard to overestimate, for tho Hying machine videttes will bo at onco tho eves and ears of the- armies of the future, and tlioy will have their uso 111 naval -warfare,...

FRIDAY, NOV. 13th, 1908. Mr Walsh our worthy post master received a wire from Sydney on Wed nesday containing the sad news of the death of his brother from typhoid fever- The deceased had only been ill for about ten days. Many ex pressions of sympathy have been extended to Mr Walsh in his trouble.j We regret to havp to record tbe death of Mr John Thompson who has . been forraan in charge of the Railway Construction Department here since the railway started.

GENERAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 November 1908

GENERAL NOTES. The carrot Js by far the best root for horse feeding that is grown. Potatoes cannot bo successfully fed to pips unless they are first cooked. - The horse trade la very brisk In North Queensland at present, as a result of the Calcutta demand. Depth of rib, together with the well sprung rib of a wide horse, means heart, lung, and digestive capacity. Kale is not nearly as well known as rape, though Its merits as a fattening food for stock are equally pronounced. Italian rye would be growa to a much greater extent i£ It were' better known. For winter feed it ranks, among tho best, as it matures early. Paris green mixed with bran has been Used successfully to exterminate the hoppers which . threatened the potato crop at Colorado recently. Do not put sheep on rape when they ore hungry. It is better to accustom them to the feed by putting them on for .an hour or so a day at first. . It is tho better plan to give horses nearly all their hay in tile form of cbaff, - ? un!y giv...

FARM AND FIELD Loss in Farmyard Manure. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 November 1908

FARM AND FIELD .. !Loss in Farmyard Manixro. Farmyard. manure Is being \vavl«:l .when tho manure heap Is too dry, and gives oft a smell oC ammonia, and also when it is too wet, and a black liquid runs out from the bottom. To prevent the loss of valuable nitrogen from the ! Jieap, experiments have been made with ' kainlt,. superphosphate, gypsum, a"d sulphuric acid. It was found that l"-l nlt and superphosphate rather Increaseds the loss than dlmin'shed it. Gypsum, in rpite of all that has been .written to-the contrary, was found to be o2 practlcal'y no value unless used in largo quanti ties. and then It made the fertilising constituents In the manure to a gvat extent insoluble. Sulphur.'c acid was found to bo the most useful agent to conserve the manure,but its use was not practicable on account oE the cost., and there were also other drawbacks. The net result of all the experiments seemed to be 'that chemicals are practically worso than useless, and that in order to preserve the -n...

Tocumwal V. B. P. Brigade. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 November 1908

Tocumwai V. B. P. Brigade. A meeting of the ? supporters of the above body met on Saturday last when there was only a fair at tendance of landholders considering the importance of the meeting. Mr M. Loouey who was elected to the chair explained that the financial position of the brigade needed atten tion. He stated that Messrs E. and W. Quirk, J. Adamson, R. Bour cliier-and himself were responsible to the bank for an overdraft of about £20, and although they had a fair amount of assets, no men were in eliarge, and something definite must be done, as things at present were very unsatisfactory. If people could not see their way clear to work the brigade the fire cart and applicances had better be disposed of. The ap pliances had been offered to the Shire Council .and had been refused. He did not blame the two Councillors who opposed the Council taking it over as he had, bad a chat with them over the matter, and he exone rated them from any blame.
