REAL BROKEN HEARTS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 2 May 1914
REAL BROKEN HEARTS. The late Sir George Paget, in one of his lectures which were puiblished some years ago under the editorship of his son, stated that in most cases where death is attributed to "broken heart" no rupturo of that organ has actually taken place, although iun (loubtedly mental troubles do fre quently cause disease of the body. ,.lIe mentioned an actual case of broken heart which was cited by Dr. J. K. Mitchell, of the Jefferson Col logo, Philadelphia. In an early period of his medical career, Dr. Mitchell acted as ship's doctor to a vessel sail ing from Liverpool to one of the American ports. He became on very good terms with the captain, who was eagerly anticipating the return voy age because then he was to be mar ried to the lady of his choice. IHe had brought many costly jewels to pre sent to the lady as bridal gifts, So often did the captain discourse upon the lady and her charms that Dr. llitchell 'became wearied, and avoid. ed him whenover he could. When the ship...
PREPARATION OF SHEEP SKINS FOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 2 May 1914
PREPARATION OF SHEEP SKINS FOR MARKET, In the, preparation of sheep skins for market we would like to emphasise the care that is necessary in the tik. lng off of the skin and its drying, The utmost care should be taken to avoid cutting or damaging the pelt when skinning, All fat or meat must be cut off, the leg and face pieces remov ed, and care oxercised to prevent any blood or dirt getting on either the wool or flesh side. As regards drying, it is necessary first to spread out the skins in the shade and finish drying them either on wires or in sheds where the weath er cannot affect them, Particular care must be taken to dry the points of the shin, The skin should, when properly dried, be folded in two, head to tail, .wool outside, and pressed into bund los, weighing about 1 to 1% cwt. In tying the bundles, it is just as well to see that the rope (or wire, if rope is not obtainable) is tied around each end, so that it is impossible for thieves to pull out skins during .transit to m...
BEEF GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 2 May 1914
BEEF GROWING. "The farmer who increases the pro. ductive value of his land, either by restoring soil fertility, or by growing better grains, makes a personal suce cess, and, to an extent, becomes a public benefactor," says the "Farm Bulletin." So said someone whose name we cannot for the moment re. member. If this be true of the grain farmer, what can be said of the pro. gresslve stock raiser? There never was a time when there was so great a need of growing two pounds of beef where only one grow before, as there is at present. Such a marked increase may be possible only in some instan cos, but very great imlprovement is ne1(led in the cattle of the majority of our grazing farms and stations. Not every cattle man is in a position to raise pure breds, but none can afford to raise scrubs. And none can afford not to feed up to the animal's full ca pncity.

FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 2 May 1914
FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES, It is quite impossible in these days of keen competition, and with the high prices ruling for land, cattle, laI bor, and all conluercial commodities, to ignore the fact that if the dairy farmer is to make the most of his labors, he must be in the position of knowing, with some degree of cci'. tainty, just what branch of his busi. ness is, from year to year, the most profltable. lHow can disaster be avert. ed it he goes on year after year utter ly ignorant, not only of how Illuch he has made, or is making, from his dairy or other branches of his lu'ii. ness, but what is far worse, often not possessing a knowledge as to whether hie is making money or losing it, 'That hundreds of farmers do not find them selves involved in serious liiancial difficulties is largely due to the pro. ductiveness of the land and a tribute to their own hard-working industry. if the commercial moan, faced on all sides with keen competition, carried on his business in the haphazard w...
EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 2 May 1914
.EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS, Every man must study his own soil and orop conditions. Experiment sta tions may practiso from now until the end of time, and still not be able to answer the question for the individual farmer, Principles can be establishod, the needs of different crops can be learned, the composition of fertilisors can be determined, chemical and phy sical analyses may show wherein soils differ but wihen it comes to the questlion of the profitable use of fertil isers, each farm, each paddock must answer for itself. That Is, careful, intolligent and accurato experiments must be carried on by every farmer, gardener, and orchardist who wishes to settle this point. In all fertilliser experimental work it is Important that the land used be as uniform in soil condition and previous manuring and cropping as can be procured. The size of plots may vary according to the nature of the crop from two rquare rods to one-tenth to ond-third of an acre, or larger if desired. The larger...

FOR THE FARMER. WHY ROTATE CROPS? [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 2 May 1914
FOR THE FARMIER, WHY ROTATE CROPS? The principle involved in the pr'ac "tice of a rotation of crops, writes the "Australian Farm and IIome," applies to other things than the mere exhaus tlon of the soil by the continued growth of the plants, MIoreover, It ap plies to o0me animals as well ast to plants., It is very closely connected with the existence and increase of parasitlo enemies of plants and the analagous appearance of contagious diseases of animals, Dr, Justus TLio big, one of the first of the old agricul. tural chenmists, believed that plants excreted matter from their roots de. rived from the waste; of the food, much the name h s with animals, and that this excrement not only poisoned the soil for the nameo kind of plantto, but '0served atl food for other plants, ianid henllce his explanato(ll of the beno fito derived front a rotation of crops.

IF A HORSE COULD SPEAK! [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 2 May 1914
IF A HORSE COULD SPEAKI lie would probably say something ilke this, if he could speak: Don't hitch me to an iron post or railing when the mercury is nearly down to freezing point, I need the skin on my tongue, Don't compel me to eat more salt than I want by mixing it with my chaff, I know better than any other animal how much I need, Don't think that because I go free under the whip I don't get tired, You would move up if under the whip, Don't whip me when I get fright. ened along the road, or I shall expect it next time, and maybe make trouble, Don't trot me up hill, for I have to carry you and the buggy and myself, too. Try it yourself some time, Run up hill with a big load, Don't keep my stable very dark, for when I go out into the light my eyes are injured, Don't say "Whoal" unless you mean it, Teach me to stop at the word, It may check me if the lines break, and save a runaway and smash up. Don't forget to file my teeth when they get jagged, and I cannot chew my food, When I ge...
