Pastoral. THE CHEMISTRY OF WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866
Pastoral. THE CHEMISTRY OF WOOL. LECTURE BY PROFESSOR ANDERSON. THE nature of the soluble matters of wool has undergone a further examination within the last few years by two Frenchmen, named Maumene and Rogelet, who hare founded upon it an interesting branch of manafacture pecu liarly worthy of the attention of the farmer, be cause it gives him some indication of what sheep are receiving from the soil. According to their observations, average wool, when washed with water, yields to it 15 per cent, of its weight of yolk, composed of a particular animal acid in union with potash, of which it contains about 33 per cent. According to this calculation, a fleece weighing six pounds must contain about five ounces of potash, which are for ever re moved from the soil, and have hitherto been entirely lost. MM. Maumene^and Rogelet, however, recover this, and their process is in actual operation in some of the great centres of the woollen manufactures of France, and is in all respects a most i...
APPLYING THE RIGHT KIND OF FERTILIZERS TO GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866
APPLYING THE RIGHT KIND OF FERTILIZERS TO GRASS. GOOD barnyard manure will always supply the right kind of fertilizers, and in the right proportions, to promote a luxuriant growth of any kind of the cultivated grasses. It will supply sihoa, without which tall grass could not maintain an erect position during driving storms of rain, when furious winds sway it back and forth like waves of the sea. Grass needs an external coating of sQicia to give the stems suitable stiffness, about as much as »nim%l« need bones to enable them to stand and walk. Be sides silica, chemists tell us— "The grasses contain phosphoric add, sul phuric acid, carbonic acid, lime, magnesia, per oxvd of iron, potash, soda, chloride of potassium, chloride of sodium, carbon, and nitrogen. Now we may supply any amount we please of any two or three of these ingredients, without im proving the grass; nay, we may provide abund ance of them all, but so long as the soil is deficient in any one of these ingredients, we can...
