LAND and PRODUCER FEEDING WHEAT TO STOCK Better Returns Obtainable EXPERIENCES IN OTHER COUNTRIES Brought about primarily by the low rates at present ruling on the wheat market, the value of wheat as feed for live stock is a matter occupy- ing the minds of farmers in various parts of the Commonwealth, and for that reason the experiences of far mers in other parts of the world win make interesting reading. One well-known American publica tion, dealing with this subject in a recent issue, says:—"As a result of the experience in feeding wheat thus tax this season, many prominent feeders througiwat the Middle West have come to the conclusion that wheat can be substituted' for maize in the concen trate rations for virtually all farm stock. In every instance, however, these conclusions presuppose growd wheat, although it should not be ground fine." Another prominent journal discusses the subject at length in an article headed '"Authorities Endorse Wheat as Feed," during the course of whic...

WONDERFUL LAMB DRESSES 64 LB. AT SIX MONTHS OLD In "The Advertiser" of February 19 reference was made to a lamb sold at the Abattoirs market by Messrs. Fis- cher & Copley on account of Mr. H. J. Oldneld. Myponga, and purchased by Mr. J. Poole, TorrensvUle. * The lamb was by a Southdown ram out of a Dorset Horn-Merino cross ewe, and the dressed weight was 64 Ib. The photograph shows the splendid export type and conformity of the lamb. The short deep hindquarters, well-sprung ribs, and depth and width of forequarter, are typical of the car cases favored by oversea buyers. The weight is far in excess of that desired for export, but at 10 weeks old, 'when the lamb would have dressed about 38 lb., the carcase would have provided a model for all lamb breeders.

ROUND ABOUT [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931
ROUND ABOUT MAKING every hair of his head and beard bristle, a professor at Bris- tol University gave a practical demon- stration recently on the electric spark to hundreds of school children. To show how bodies charged with positive or negative electricity repel others similarly charged, the professor donned a mask vMh a beard of paper shavings. When he electrified his body not only the hair on his head bristled, but also his beard. A boy was asked to lie on a stretcher suspended from the ceiling by a single wire, and was then pulled round with the Invisible force of an electrified wand, like a compass needle deflected by a piece of steel. The last experiment was the produc tion of sparks by creating such a strain between two points electrically charged that the electricity jumped across with a loud snap. 'THE Prince of Wales, like his grand x father. King Edward, is a great animal lover, and about his beloved Cairn terrier. Cora, there are as many stories as there were about the f...

Wonders of An Adelaide Aquarium Curious Things in a Kent Town Backyard Newts and Other Amphibia Many people know much about flowers and trees, and birds of the air, and beasts of field and jungle; even of the larger fish of the Ma; but comparatively few know anything of the teeming. tiny life of backwaters and pools. Very few. indeed, know that In Kent Town there is an aquarium filled with an absorbingly interesting coDecttan of these enrioos creatures. NOWHERE better than In an aquarium, conducted on scientific lines, does Nature display her most marvellous handiwork. Theie is such an aquarium as this tucked away in a back yard of a house in Kent Town. Here, un suspected by most people, is a micro cosm, in which, day and night, the mysterious work of Nature is being carried out under the eye of s man who has studied aquatic life in many of Its aspects. In this aquarium of Mr. P. A. Gefcler, there are between 5,000 and 6,000 fish. mostly small, but all distinguished by some particul...

DIARY OF A DOCTOR Consumption at an Early Stage FRIEDREICH'S ATAXIA This is a weekly article written by a doctor with a suburban practice. All the name of the fiction. names are fictitious. Monday. February 16th_ EVER since las*. Tuesday week,; John Mortiny hasn't, known! where his big toe was. Not that j 1 he's lost it or anything, but he has ' I lost the sense of position in regard to &lt; it. Of course, if he has any doubt about its whereabouts he can always have a look at it, but, then, as he ex plained to me in a hurt voice this morning, it's a bit of a nuisance having to take off your boot to make certain you 6till have a big toe. ThlE loss or the senee of position is not a disease in itself. It is rather an advanced stage of an affliction John has had since he was twelve years of | age. At that time his legs became difficult to handle (if you may put it that way). He developed a clumsy gait and. indeed, be has found walking somewhat increasingly difficult ever since. ...

Beauty in a Doorway [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931
Beauty in a Doorway There is an architectural grandeur in an entrance of this type, which is another example of the Renaissance period of architecture. Here we have the Roman Corinthian Order, with its attic base, fluted columns, com- posite capitals, and an ornate entablature with pediment over it. En- ncbmenr ana ______ are bjso vypictu oi _ne __ruer __-_, uie i_____ mint t\a scroll work in mid relief, and the cornice with Its dentils and carved modlllions. In the tympanum of the pediment appropriate enrichment gives added beauty to the upper portion, while the decorative twin columns below, on either side, give adequate support to the enriched entab lature. This Order Is one which the Romans took a delight In using, as It gave them scope to show their love of ornaments. This is the main en? trance of the Union Bank, Adelaide.
