HOMELY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 March 1914

HOMELY HINTS. joined the new Don't Worry Club, And now I hold my breath I'm so scared for fear I'll worry, That I'm worried .'most to death! The kind of elastic currency that is needed is one that will stretch far enough to make both ends meet. Alnways keep a cover on things that are boiling, because then the steam can't all escape and the' things will cook much faster. A little grated cheese beaten through the mashed potatoes-the way they cook them sometimes in Italy-makes a pleasant change. Write your name on the inside cover of your books, instead of on the fly leaf, which may be easily torn ut, then loaned boooks will usually find their way home. I.f you have a, dark cellar, paint the lowest step white, thereby preventing mishalps, and also doing away with feeling for the last step when you go down,. btocking tops are excellent for lin ing t~he seats, knees and elbows of small boys clothes. Being elastic, they ad-, juss themselves smoothly, and are strong without being heavy. A ...

CATCH CROPS—THEIR VALUE AND ADVANTAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 March 1914

CATCH CROPS-'THEIR VALUE AND ADVANTAGES. A "catch," or1 'stolen" crop is one that is grown between Uhe regular an nual crops of the iotation, and which is not considered the main crop of the year. The chief crop of the year oc cupies the. ground during the summer months, vwhile the "catch" or "inter polated" crop has its active period of growth in the autumn, and perhaps also in the spring. In market gard ening; the practice- of growing interpo lated crops is quits common, but in ordinary agriculture it is restricted in cold and temperate climates, and is only extensively practised in warm countries such as Italy, where numerous second aary crops are successfully grown after the ordinary corn harvest. In Great? BBriain, the practice is most widely fol :lowed in the Southern parts of Eng la?nid, whire the winters are short, the au.uins mild, and the spring early.. In the& north of England, and in Scotland, whIrer;the climate is more severe, catcih ,cropping is much more restr...

THE HOLSTEIN. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 March 1914

There are several distinct groupsof Dutch cattle--namly, the Friesian, the Black and White Holland,. the Black White-head Grorningenl, and the Red-. white 1lMeuse-Rhine-Yssel groups. In some of the best herds the average an rnual yield is stated to be 860 gallons and over, including heifers with first calves. Older oows are said t;o give 1300 gallons, and the fat percentage is estimated at from 3 to 5 per cent. Among the dairying herds of America~ the Holstein ranks only second to the Jersey. It is the largest of the dairy breeds, and the colour markings are variegated black and white, there being a preference, as a rule, for animals on which the two colours are about evenly divided. These colours are never blended, but always sharply defined. The cows are lively, a-nd have plenty of nervons energy, which is so essential a clharacteristio in any dairy breed; but unlike .the highly-developed Jersey,. they, are at the same time very tract able, and sudden disturbahces or un usual cond...

EFFECT OF DRAINING ON THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 March 1914

' EFFECT OF DRAINING ON THE SOIL. Tihe most important result is, that it makes the soil warmer. A"iwet soil is cold, chiefly because the water in it is constantly evaporating, and evapo ration is a cooling process. To illustrate this: If the bulb of one thermometer is ooverel with a wet muslin, and the bulb of another similar thtrmometer is left uncovered, the wet thermometer may register as much as 15 degrees cooler wheri both are swung in dry air. This is due to the cooling effect of the evaporation of the water. Moreover, water is a poor conductor of heat; wet soils warm in the sun slowly, beoause the water they contai holds down the temperature. Theare is uually a dif ference of 5 to 10 degrees between drain ed and undrained soil in the same field In fact, the temperature of .a soil in summer is very largely determined by the amount of water it contains; the wetter it is, the colder it is. Warmth is one of the chief essentials for the ger mination and growth of farm crops; it is...

ARGENTINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 March 1914

iAE 1ETINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY. Argentina, in spite of poor markecting facilities and a backward farming po pulation, already ranks third among the three wheat-exporting oountries of the world. Its area devoted to wheat cul ture has doubled during the past 10 years, and' is three times as large as it was only 15 years ago. There is every prospect, too, of a still greater advance in theonear future. In the August United Empire, Mr. S. BKodred, of Buenos Ayries, gives an -.intrersting uc count of cereal-growing in this" South American repubho, which bids fair to become one of the world's granaries. Owing to conditions of climate and soil, Argentina cannot, it would seem, enter into serious competition with Canada in the production of "strong whealt. Barletta wheat, originally brought from Italy, forms about 70 per cont. of the crop, and Russian wheat 20 per cent., while the remaining 10 per cent, would incliude various classes. of wheat, some of o-hioh are grown spe cially for, making ma...

MANURING GRASS LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 March 1914

M~ANURING GRASS LANDS. A crop of 1l tons of meadow hay per acre contains on the iyerage 491b nitro gen, G61ib. potash, and f2-lb phosphoric acid: The question of appropriate manuring of grass lands is comphcated by the questions as to whether it is intended for per:manent pasture, or to be cut for hay; and whether grass and olover is to predominate. rt may be stated generally that the proportion for clover Is increased by the application f manures containing potash and pLhos phoric acid, and diminlshed by the ap plica·tion of nitrogenous manures. Too neavy manuring of any kind, especiaiiy nitrogenous, tends to the growth of coarse grass. lianures eontaianag lime such as plaster, also promote tie growth of clovers. For grass the best results were obtained by Laws and Gil bert in England by the application of mineral (superphosphate and kainit), together with sulphate of ammonia.

I suppose it en oourages some who are already on tle right path, so that they'll keep on im proving themselves a little; bus' it doesn't go to the root; of the matter.

THE FEEDING OF PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 March 1914

THE FEEDING OF PIGS. The opinion seems tbo be general amongst a certain class of pig-keepers, says a writer in "Farmer and Stock breeder," that vegetable food whlch oontains so large a proportion of water -'roots, for instince, contain about .9 per cent. of water--cannot be beneficial for pigs, whereas exactly the opposite is tle fact, as proved by experniments carried on, one must oanfess mainly iii other countries, Tiive clearly proved that pig fed onl nine-tonths meal and oie-tenthl vegetable matter actually have made a greater increase than pigs fedL solely on meal. There is thus a considerable saving in the cost of food. It should be added that there exists among certain bacon curers in Ireland a fear that the giving of vegetable matter or roots to pigs during the fattening period injures the quality ,of the pork and results in soft bacon. It is quite possible that the result may be as stated, but it may also be due, not to the unsuitability of the other food fed at the same ti...

When it i; col! she adids a stole and muff to her roijette, and her hat will probably be in velvet to match the costume. Thus turned out, she will be suffioiently "dressed" for shopping, visiting in the ordinary way, or for a tea in an hotel or tea-room. Her shoes will have short patent-leather vamps and cloth tops, and her gloves will be either yel low or mastic suede.
