News and Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 6 September 1912

News and Notes, ? w In the N.S.W. State papers, about the -year 1846, the mystery is cleared up of the tradition of a white woman held in captivity by Gippsland blacks. It proved to be the figurehead of a wrecked ship, named the Britannia. The blacks who gave the information did not make it clear that they only moonf, an i m » era rvr iHnl Tf Booms fn have been worshipped like the empty beer bottles found by a traveller in a Tibetan temple. There were two expeditions after the supposed Gipps land white woman. Doubtless, everybody was not satisfied as to there having been no woman. Several tale-writers wrought up tbe yarn. In the dusty archives of the Melbourne Public Library a MSS. tale on the subject has just been found, called ' The Heart,' written by Russel, the surveyor, who assisted Hoddle to lay out Melbourne. Henry Gyles Turner, of the Commercial Burst of Australia, also wrote a romance on the subject in 1857. It was published in a Melbourne maga zine, called the ' Journal of...

SOYA BEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 6 September 1912

SOYA BEANS. Soya beans, which were unknown to commerce a very few years ago, now occupy a very forward place among the speculative handlings in the course of a year's business. They have positively rehabilitated the for tunes of large districts, of vast stretches of country in Manchuria. According te- reliable mail news, the stock at Dalny at the end of April was only 72,000 tons, at Vladivostock under 40,000 tons, while the general estimate of supplies from the Sun gari is nearer 50,000 tons than 100,000 tons, as was . reported some time ago. it must tie Dome in mind, declares a prominent London authority when re ferring to this particular market, that, in addition to the increased manufac turing activity in Manchuria this sea son, there is a considerable shortage of foodstuffs in the East. Rice is scarce and abnormally dear, and in creased quantities of soya beans have been used in China and Japan for human consumption. The statistical position is therefore against any thing in th...

EXPERIMENTING BY FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 6 September 1912

EXPERIMENTING BY FARMERS. The old-time hostility of some farm ers toward advice in agricultural work by chemists is fast dying out (writes 'Practical' in the 'Fanner'). Now men, particularly the younger men, are beginning to appreciate the value of scientific research, especially in the domain of chemistry; and- not the least appreciative are those who make their living by agriculture. . They are coming to realise that to the chemist they are more indebted than to any other; for chemical research has given to them the inestimable boon of ar tificial manures in a highly concen trated form. We are indebted to the chemist for the discovery of finely ground bonedust, superphosphate, and basic slag as concentrated phosphatio manures. The late Sir J. B. Laws was the first to embark on the manufacture of superphosphate on a commercial scale, the great German chemist, Lie big, had also, by independent experi ment, discovered the value of treating bones and other phosphates with sul phuric a...

THE OIL ENGINE ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 6 September 1912

THE OIL ENGINE ON THE FARM. The internal ' combustion engine (writes Mr. W. Worby, C.E., in the 'Farm and Home Year Book'.') is rap idly making it true to say that power is the cheapest thing you can want if you have any real use for it. On the farm there can be no doubt as to the many useful purposes which may be served by mechanical power. It must, however, be cheap powder, and to be uutjitp ii must, ow ouiauiauie euuuu mically in the varying quantities re quired by the different kinds of farm I work. i That which would be cheap where a considerable power output is con tinuously required from an engine would cease to be so where the largj power is but occasionally wanted, and the engine is called upon to work on very small power requirements oil most of the occasions of its employ ment. On most farms power is most fre mipntlv rpniiir*»rt fnr rtrifnnp* ters, pumps, saw-benches, cream sep arators, pulpers and oat crushers, the latter not being used as much as they should be.

'&i?ADiftis~who peru&'e^iTd report or^ihe meeting of the Avon Shire Council which appears in, another column, will observq that the first business considered by councillors waB the election of a President for the ensuing twelve months. When Cr Killeen moved that Cr Taylor be elected President, Cr Carter drew attention to the fact that the Local Government Act required that, the President's allowance should be fixed before the election was proceeded with, but Cr Killeen put the objection aside, and went on with his motion, observing that the allowance had been fixed before the meeting commenced. True, councillors assembled in the secretary's office earlier in the. day and decided on the allowance, and also on the councillor who should be elected President, but whether that informal gathering could be taken as a meeting according to the Act is an open question. Undoubtedly, there are at times matters that require tobe discussed in committee, but we main tain that the f...

POSITION OF LIMBS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 6 September 1912

POSITION OF LIMBS IN HORSES: To have them standing correctly on their limbs ranks among the leading points looked for in all classes of horses, both light and heavy (writes a correspondent of the 'Live Stock Journal'). The feature of primary importance in this respect is that there should be an even and well balanced distribution of the body's weight over all four legs and feet by these being squarely and truly placed under it, for so distributed the stress imposed upon them in having to sup port this weight is reduced to a mini- ' mum, and this necessarily conduces 1 to their wearing well. In practice it ! is, of course, very usually found that I if the legs, and more especially so i the fore 1 gs, are badly placed, they are more liable to suffer from the ef fects of wear, and to develop un soundness than is the case when the horse stands correctly upon them. A fault which i3 particularly objection able in this connection is that of the fore feet being placed too far back under the...
