Motor Notes NO MORE PUMPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 30 August 1928
Motor Notes NO MORE PUMPING. One of the latest time savers and automotive helps to make its way on the American market' is the Automa tic Tyre; Iriflator. One of these in flatory, is installed in. each wheel: the valves are set for the pressure re quired and the wheel attends to the business of inflating without human guidaince. The moment the pressure drops below a predetermined point, the inflators replace the lost air. These inflators are simple in con 1 struction and make an inconspicious permanent attachment to the wheel, which does not interfere with the removal and replacement of , tyres or rims. | Prpper inflation is highly import ant to satisfactory service from bal i oon tyres. This device is fully auto matic, iis the valves are set to deliv ' er the proper amount . of air, and when up to pressure no more air will enter as the valve is set so that the surplus air passes out through the exhaust. It is claimed that these in itiators' will increase the tyre mile^ . age 25 to ...

WILL IT CLOSE? WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THE HOSPITAL? (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 30 August 1928
j WILL IT CLOSE ? WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THE HOSPITAL? (To the Editor). I Dear Sir, — Perhaps it may be pos sible to , elicit through your columns 5 a ? public ' - expression of opinion for the reason of the lack of support for our Hospital | ? uiacn year tne voiunuii.ee s won* is made more difficult by the grow ing-apathy of the public.

If it is the Committee the people do not approve of, the remedy offers at the annual election; yet the ap palling apathy is evidenced by the fact that the; present committee was elected on a paltry poll of only 49 effective votes. Just imagine the whole community casting only 49 formal votes,, and stamped envelopes supplied with the ballot papers. When recently the live President promulgated a scheme for sane fi nance by means of a district collec tor, in lieu of the wretched ...

THE WORLD OF SPORT A DEBACLE AT COOTA. HOSTS OF CANOWINDRA SPREAD DESOLATION 'Anybody Here SeenKelly? Yesterday the hosts of Canowindra &nbsp; overrun the land of Cootamundra, and there were lamentations of the conquered ones as they viewed the desolation that would, come on the &nbsp; pubberies and hot-pie shops - by the wresting of the Maher Cup from the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; holders. With Canowindra it was 'come one, come all.' Mothers brought &nbsp; their babies and bullock bells; old pleasant-faced nonagenarians and grand-mas ; flapperettes and school boys — all were there.

PASTORAL. DIPPING OF SHEEP SOME IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 3 September 1928
PASTORAL. DIPPING OF SHEEP SOME IMPORTANT PRECAU TIONS. ! The full measure of protection cannot be obtained from any sheep dip unless the sheep be dipped thor oughly and the directions given on the packet or drum be carried out to the letter. The liquid capacity of th'e bath .should be accurately gaug ed, and after measuring: out the , proportional amount of powder of1 concentrated liquid, every care should be taken to mix as prescribed. Un satisfactory results are frequently obtained as the result of careless cal culations, and sometimes, and pome times mortality results from using the dip too strong. The practice of increasing the strength of the dip because the parasites are bad (write officers of the Stock Branch of the Department of Agriculture) cannot r be too strongly condemned.
WHY GOOD DRILLING IS WORTH WHILE [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 3 September 1928
? ? i WHY GOOD DRILLING IS WORTH WHILE It is not uncommon, to see wide misses in a wheat j:rop, or more im portant still, too wide a space be tween drill widths. Some use may be made of he vacant land by ad jacent wheat plants, observes J. E. Harrison in the Victorian Joui nal of Agriculture, but more often it is a harbour for wee;«s. It becomes then a matter of proportion how much is lost. For example if one row in thirteen missed, it is equivalent to missing one bushel in thirteen, one acre in thirteen, or £1 in £13. In addition, weeds are fostered, and shed their seed for subsequent growth. Good drilling is a matter for pride and economy.
THE LIMITATIONS OF LIMING [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 3 September 1928
THE LIMITATIONS OF LIMING Liming will not take the place of drainage. Acid soil conditions may be due to poor drainage, but lime can improve only the condition of the upper soil, making for better cir culation of air and water (writes Ed mund S. Shorey, of the U.S. Bureau of Chemistry and Soils). Imper vious layers of hardpan are not ma terially affected by application of . lime, but should be broken up by other means. Lime does not supply any of the constituent elements furnished by fertilisers — potash, phosphoric acid, or ammonia. Best results should not be expected from an application of lime on soil deficient in organic matter, and lim ing should not be expected to build up such a soil unless such organic matter is supplied either in manure or green crops ploughed in.
With the Man on the Land AGRICULTURAL THE MAIZE CROP FACTORS IN DEPTH PLANTING [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 3 September 1928
With the Man on the Land AGRICULTURAL : : - — ? ? ' I THE MAIZE CROP FACTORS IN DEPTH PLANTING The depth of planting of maize (states a departmental publication) should be determined by three fac tors, viz., (1) time off planting, , (2)' nature of the soil, (3) moisture i in the soil. ' j In the early spring the soil is usu- j ally sufficiently moist near the sur- , face not to require deep planting, j At this time, too, deep planting re suits in much loss in germination, o\v- j ing to the soil not being warm to j any depth. The result is that there is not sufficient warmth to induce germination, and the seed rots in : ground. i Clay soils remain cold much longer than sandy soils; so that apart from the fact that the young shoots are too tender to push their way through too great a depth of clay soil, where as they can go through a sandy soil with comparative ease, planting may be deeper on the latter than on the former. On sandy soils, however, there should be a limit to the depth ...
