GUNBOWER ISLAND. THINNING THE FOREST. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 25 September 1914

GUNBOWKR ISLAND. THINNING THE FOREST. Thanks largely to the efforts of Mr. H. M'Kenzie, M.L.A., there is at last a good prospect of a con- siderable gang of men being soon put on to thin the Gunbower State Forest. The development is the result of the threatened pressure of / the: . tttieinployed ^problem, ? Mr. M'Kenzie has been informed by the Minister of Forests (Mr. J, D. Brown, M.L.C.) " that an endea vour will be made to arrange for forest thinning as soon as possible." From other sources it is learnt that preparations for this work are acttvely proceeding. No public work is more urgent; nor is there one that is more certain to prove a remunerative invest- ment. The wealth of valuable timber that is going to rack and ruin in this fine but long-neglected red-gum plantation, for want of systematic thinning and the dis posal of debris, would astonish the country if the facts were known. And the longer the work is delayed the worse things are becoming. No gold mine in Victoria has ...

FEDING SHEEP. The Careful and the Careless Man. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 2 October 1914

-HDINti SHBep. Th» Careful and the Carelaw Maw. It is somewhat curious to notice that, notwithstanding what has been writ ten and preaphed, arid, rtdeed, In spite ot a recognition or the value of the system, fow; farmers wfco go In foi -mixed farming operations, really en* tcr upon the raising Qf sheep on lines likely to ensure success. After all. with most of tbo farmers It is a slip shod method, and this is not indicated so surely as in the provision for tho -sheep. Tho most successful farmers always take care that enough artificial food is raised for the sheep to pass them over an ordinarily dry period. The man who muddles along, however, simply depends upon his wheat crop to pass him from one period to an« other. He either cannot afford the time or will not make it to provide h trop which may he used to advantage to carry his young sheep on or the old ones forward until thero is suffi cient grass for them to depend upon. One need not mention any state-the same rule applies to th...

FUMED AND GOLDEN OAK. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 2 October 1914

FUMED AND GOLDEN OAK. One hears so frequently nowadays the terms "fumed oak" and "golden jak," that the question naturally arlsei is to the meaning ot tho terms. The best "golden" cfTect Is obtained irltb what la known as quartered oak, the log being sawn In half, and then theso halves sawn In half again, mak ing quarters. Each ot theso quarters tro then sawn at right angles, with two sawn sides parallel with tho bark tide, thus giving tho flakes of the woods In their greatest area nnd beau ty. Tho wood Is then filled nnd staln ld. None of this treatment, however, iffects tho flalces, which show up a tolden yellow, especially after the var itsh coats have been applied. "Fumed oak" Is oak that has been treated with the fumes of ammonia. The effect of the ammonia Is to dark sn the wood, nnd It also cuts the grain, roughing It up. After the wood has been treated with tho fumes of the unmonla It Is sandpapered down, and italned or waxed, as the case may be.

HORTON. Farmers in outlying portions of this district, such as Kow Swamp, where water is almost unobtainable . for irrigation, look with pardonably . envious eyes at the settlers lii the more favored localities, with pract ically Unlimited Supples at their command. An illustration of shifts which some larmers are put in this respect just now may be seen at Horton, where four farmers-the Messers Hawken and A. Iiourne mon-have been hard at work for a fortnight trying to tap a small bo dy of water that has been left in the centre of the Swamp. There is about a thousand acre feet, and per mission having been granted them by the water engineer, they have considerably deepened the offtake, cutting their way, waist deep in mud, almost to the middle of the Swamp. 1'umps have been doing the res].
