tl TURF TOPICS I. (By "Flemington.") n I I' - ---- S Last week a warning was sounded in Sthi' column in regard to Averse. It a has since become increasingly evident e that the beautiful and speedy impor s ted English bred mare is giving her trainer some anxiety. Averse is still a daily visitor at Flemington. but she s is very rarely asked to go out of a.. canter. This would lead. to the be lief that all is not well'with her. Averse may still be got to the post for her autumn engagements, .but in the meantime; no liability should be ac cepted on her behalf. - . Misfoitunes rarely come singly. s P. T.

Now. if Cl Ewa~rt. had a family of young chil dren depending on him (which. thank the Lord, he has not., and I hlope he never will). how would he like to be hunted off to the war just because lie could not find oemployment?

TO SUCCEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 5 February 1915
TO SUCCEED. Are you trying to climb where the chosen are; Where the feet of men are few Do you long for "a job' that is worth one's while?'' Well, here is a thought, for you: The-pots of gold at the rainbow's. end Are sought by the teeming mob, But the fairies who 'guard them-choose as friend The man who loves his job. No matter what grip of hand he has How poor or strong his brain, There's always a place for the man who loves His work with might and main; Does. he dig a ditch, or blaze a trail Where the dream of man may run No clod of earth shall shoulder him From his place out in' the sun! It *isn't the kick, it's not the pull, That brings the strong man out; But it's long-time work and it's all " time will, And the .cheerful heart and shout! Have faith in yourself9 Do_ you want to win? Is your heart for success athrobl There's just one thing can bring you in :With the winners-love your job!

BEEKEEPING FOR WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 5 February 1915
BEEKEEPING FOR WOMEN. A woman writes: ''Now beekeeping gives the women of the farm home a reason for being out of doors, and at just the season when the world is most beautiful. Moreover, the apiary is al ways in a pleasant place. One thing that holds my attention is that, how ever unattractive the surroundings of the farmhouse, the bees have a pleas ant corner in the orchard or in some 'other partly sunny spot. Whether they know it or not the women of the farm home who care for the bees get some good air and some good healthy out door labor, and meanwhile they are not troubled with insomnia. How many "a country wife has wondered and re sented during her sleepless hours the sound and perfect sleep of her husband, when the only reason for this differ ence lay in the fact that his work was in the open air and hers in the stuffy house. h'oThen there is another and more fundamental reason for beekeeping as a woman's interest. I would prescribe as a' means for preserving sanity and sound...

CATCH CROPS FOR FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 5 February 1915
CATCH CROPS FOR FODDER. The value of a mixture of vetches and barley for providing a liberal amount of feeding for milking stock at periods of the year when- pastures must be,, supplemented has been well demonstrated at the Moumahaki. Expe rimental Farm. On the 14th March of last. year" a five-acre field of. rye stubble was disced and sown with vet ches and barley, the seeding being at the rate of 2, bushels per acre, and the manuring 1 cwt. of Thorns phos phate per acre. Twenty fattening bullocks-for topping off after being brought to good.condition on swedes=- were turned on to this growth,.18 in. in height, on the 25th June, and on the 8th July they were in prinie -mar keting form. The twenty bullocks had left the crop-eaten down hard: On .the 17th of the same month twenty store bullocks were turned in, and the bite of green stuff remaining was supple mented by mangels carted out to the field. By the 13th August, when they, were taken out, the cattle were in fat and~ forward cond...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 5 February 1915
MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Oorrespondent.) There are many. deserving. cases among the unemployed, but their cause is not being made any stronger by the h ysterical crowd who are espous ing it and incidentally getting a lot of the limelight that is their de light. The metropolitan evening newspaper is the worst offender in this respecb. Its campaign in the in terests of those suffering from the stress of the time is spoiled by maw kish sentiment and ill-judged- tactics. The committee who have undertaken to collect public subscriptions for relief funds and disburse the money have a not,-too-pleasant task. Strikes at this juncture, and the general attitude of the workers who get the ear of the public are not calculated to loosen up the hold upon the money on the part of those who have something to spare. A letter published in the press the other day gives expression to feeling in the matter which it cannot-be de-li-d' is very general. The writer says:-The sole reason for the un...

RIPENING THE CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 5 February 1915
RIPENING THE CREAM. The development of a certain degree of sourness in the cream is most de sirable. It produces more butter of bet ter quality, which keeps longer. But beyond this stage of souring when the cream is said to be ripe, it is undeirable to go. Experience teaches the dairy maid when the correct degree of acidity has been reached. It may be judged by the taste and the smell, or may be determined by the acidimeter when the cream shows an acidty of .5. When cream has passed this stage undesirable fermentation changes set which spoil the flavor and keeping quality of the butter, and what is of much more importance, from the point of view of the present discussion, such cream yields a very soft butter. To ensure the best results, therefore, one must churn the cream when it is ready. A weekly "churning day" in hot weather will not suffice. As regards the churn ing itself, it is practically impossible without the use of ice. To obtain firm butter in the heat of the day, much th...
SEAWEED AS A MANURE FOR POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 5 February 1915
SEAWEED AS A MANURE FOR POTATOES. Fresh seaweed contains about the same quantity of nitrogen as well rotted farmyard manure, and consider ably more potash, while, on the other hand, its contents in phosphate are less. According to a leaflet issued by the Irish Department of Agriculture, tit can be used with advantage for every crop on the farm or garden to which farmyard manure is applied, and, ow ing to the large quantity of available potash it contains, is especially suit able for growing potatoes-although it has been observed that when potatoes. that have been grown with large quan tities of seaweed are dug up in the green state, the tubers are inclined to be more waxy than those grown with farmyard manure. This drawback is not quite so apparent when the tubers are left on the ground until fully ma tured, or when superphosphate has been used, together with the seaweed, or when it has been ploughed into the land during the previous autumn or winter. Therefore, an effort should be ...

LIME. ITS USES AND VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 5 February 1915
LIM.E. ITS USES AND VALUE. It is one of the advantages of liming the soil that the lime has a chemical action, disintegrating the mineral con stituents in the soil, and thus rendering available for plant nourishment the soil potash and phosphates which would otherwise remain inert. For this reason its application this season is especially appropriate, be cause its action will release soil potash, and thus help to make up for the lack of the ordinary commercial potash. Liming the soil was a general prac tice half a century ago, but its use has become less general. There is, how ever, evidence in many parts of the country, that., apart from the above consideration, applications of lime are becoming essential, and although it may not be necessary to revert to the old practice of such heavy dressings as 6 or 8 tons to-the acre, it is probable that smaller dressings of about a ton to the acre, applied once in the course of each rotation, would be attended with good results, especially in...
BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 5 February 1915
BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT. The Minister for Agriculture, Mr. .Hutchinson, received a deputation from the Chamber of Agriculture, which dis cussed the question of the inquiry into the bulk handling of wheat. The Rev. Wodo and Mr McRobin of Bendigo ad dressed the Minister. They said they had been waiting for some announce ment of the intentions of the Govern ment, and when the Canadian export would arrive in Victoria. They were anxious because nothing had been heard about the matter for some time. They urged the Governmbnt to proceed with'the enquiry without delay. Other members of the: deputation spoke in a similar strain. - In reply the Minister read a letter from Mr J. P. Jones, the Canadian expert, who had been engaged, in which ,ho said he had been engaged in Can ada' on urgent business connected with his department, and also in collecting and grading seed wheat for the drought areas of Western Canada, - and also in selecting seed wheat for New Zea land.
