TANNING FUR SKINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 26 September 1913

TANNING FUR SKINS. The wattle-bark method o£ tanning fur skins, properly adopted, should give bettor results than any other. Collect some wattle-bark, and make a strong decoction by boiling or steeping the bark dn water. A bushel of crushed bark from a tannery, if one is near at hand, will be found an easy way of getting tho • beat jark. The akin should be scraped clean on the inside; before steeping begins. It is best to let the skins lie as flat as possible while soaking; and a large, square, zinc-lined packing case is therefore preferable to a barrel. The skins should be thoroughly covered by the liquid, which must either be changed once a week, or boiled smew and skimmed.. While the skin is out cf the liquid each week it should, be lightly sonaped. Large skJas take aip to six weeks to tan well, but opos sum skins will not'require more than a month.

WHAT WAS "FORBIDDEN FRUIT"? [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 26 September 1913

WHAT WAS "FORBIDDEN FRUIT"? Why and how It has happened that the apple has been spoken of as the fruit that was forbidden in the Garden of Eden is ono of the great puzzles o£ Biblical scholars. Tho fact is that in Genesis ill., where the Incident of the eating of tlilB fruit o£ the "Tree of Knowledge o£ Good and Evil" iB mentioned, no name whatever Is given to that traiit. AU that Is said is: "And when tno woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that It was ipleasaut to the eyes, and a tireo to be desired to mako one wise, ehe took of tho fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave al6o unto lior husband with ■ her; and he did eat" (verse 6). in fact, scholars doubt very serious ly whether it was tho apple at all. They suggest that all ovidence points to it having been the quince, the fragrance of which was held in the highest esteem by the Orientals. An other point in favor of the quince is that is it the fruit which was s-cred to Venus, the goddese of love, and in a great many of ...

FIRE AT OAKLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 26 September 1913

FIRE AT OAKLANDS. Shortly before 1 o'clock on Friday, a fire broke out in the offices of Messrs McPherson Thom & Co., Mifthorpe street, A strong westerly wind was blowing and the building, a wooden one, was rapidly demolished, and despite all efforts to prevent it, the flames rapidly spread to the adjoining building occupied as a general store by messrs J R. Coughlan and Co., and for a time it looked as if nothing could prevent the de- vastion of the block of buildings on the south side of the street. Notwithstanding the heroic efforts of a large crowd of willing work- ers who were fighting desperately to control the flames, the fire continued to make headway, and it was thought that the only hope of saving the adjoining hotel pro- perty and other business premises, was the demolition of a building used as a furniture and bulk store, and after the contents were hastily removed, a number set to work with axes to destroy the building. All the time the fire fighters were , at w...

A FARMER'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 3 October 1913

A FARMER'S ADVICE. speaking on the above subject beiore the Leech's Gully branch of the Agri cultural Bureau, Mr. J. Uitzell, of that district urged fanners there to avoid the use of artificial (commercial) ferti lisers by keeping up -the fertility of the soil in other ways. This coul 1 be accomplished by maintaining a rct'ition of crops, applying farmyard nianuro, ploughing in crop residues, and, grazing oft tho crops as far as possible, mar keting them in the form of dairy pn*. ducts, wool, mutton, etc., instead ;of grain or hay. "Bear; in mind that sheep grazing over a crop will return about 75 per cent, of tho plant food in the crop to the soil por medium of their droppings. There is not Buffi-"' ciont attention paid to the conservation and use of farmyard manure in Aus tralia, but as t'so c.untry becomes' more densely populated and intensively worked the matter will receive; duo at tention. !

Maintaining Soil Fertility. METHODS OF CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 3 October 1913

Maintaining Soil Fer tility,. METHODS OF CULTIVATION. ,Witli general reference to the cultiva tion o£ the soil, tlie principle advised was early and thorough .ploughing—not necessarily deep, although a moderate depth of about live inches should be aimed at. Either mould-board or disc ploughs could be used according to soil: the mould-board plough was preferred for fallowing (first ploughing), for it would plough harder gro'und and turn woeds under betttei', and also leave tho. surface rougher than a disi ] lough; Ihe latter hail ilie advantage of living light er in draught, bat it tended to make the. soil too fine." "When a soil i? turned up the air and moisture are allowed to penetrate freely, and conditions are sot up that are favorable to the beneficial bacteria which convert unavailable plant food into available plant food." SURFACE WORKING IN SUMMER Whil eholdirig that one good plough ing is generally sufficient, this farmer liad a word to say about summer culti vation which de...

Mr. Wade Supports Three Million Loan._ -In tho Istorm and strife of party government it is not often that a mem ber of the Opposition has the time or the inclination to support, a proposal, however meritorious, emanating from tils sworn anil avowed enemies—the Go vernment.

Sheep and the Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 3 October 1913

Sheep and the Farmer. Xha "On the Land" writor of the S;J1. 'Iierald" states that a disiU'ict corres pondent (presumably the Yerong .Creelc correspondent of the "Wagga Express"); recently drew attention to the'-fact that with the advance o£ agriculture - loc ally there is more than a corresponding' falling-off in wool production and stock raising. Most of the high-class clips ol former years, /lie states, have prac tically disappeared, and in their place pre tho usual five or ten bale lots of much inferior quality. This result has been cxpected in many quarters, and, while regrettable, is no occasion for alarm at this stage. It has to be con sidered a phase of the transition from' pastoral to agricultural occupation, but is not necessarily a permanent condi tion. It might indeed have been lar gely avoidable had effective action been taken at tho right time. Some live or six years ago, when different stations long famous for producing good stand ard clips were subdivided, wo direc te...

Lockhart to Urana and Clear Hills. (From the Wagga "Express.") [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 3 October 1913

Lockhart to Urana and Clear Hills. (From tlio AVagga "Express.") -Crop prospects o£ Wagga and Im mediately surrounding districts we touched upon in an earlier issue tliia week, and since tlien our travelling representative lias returned from a trip through the Lockhart( Boree Creek, and Urana country. As around Wagga, the crop prospects are excel-: lent at present, so also are they fur ther west, along this new line. Two inches of rain during September have had a very beneficial effect on the country between Boree Creek and Urana, and as that district is a fort night earlier than Wagga, the growth in crops and grass has responded even more quickly than hereabouts. Two years ago the railway from Lock hart to Urania was opened, and twelve months ago the extension to Oaklands was completed to within 2S miles of the Victorian border But its comple tion came at an apparently inoppor tune time for Urana and Oakland;* as it was just at the time the country was entering upon the most financ...
