HINTS FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
HINTS FOR FARMERS. Tan Bahk.— Spent tan bari has been ploughed into a compact clay soil with the best results, as it rendered the soil mellow and increased He warmth. Feeding foe Milk. — A dairyman says that when he feeds beans to his cows there will be an increase of a quart of milk a day from each animal, and a like decrease when he changes from beans to meal. Flecks in Butteb — Flecks in butter may be caused (says the Western Enrol) by hard cream, but would not he unless the butter came very quickly. If time were allowed the hard cream would necessarily be dissolved. Usually it is curd, caused by germs in the milk, and the remote cause is usually au improper degree or unevennecS of temperature in which tbe milk and cream are kept. Such imperfections in the butter, too, are often traceable to a lack of proper construction of the milk, a result of im proper feeding. No one will deny, of course, that if the cow be properly fed, pro perly cared for, tbe milk and cream kept at a prope...

That Mr. Smith was an impor tant plant-man in 1867 we have proof in the fact that during that year he was pre Eented by the Duke of Edinburgh with a gold medal for ornamental plants, and a collection of 48 Roses exhibited at the same time at the Sauth Australian Agricultural and Horticultural Society's Show made him the recipient of a similar honor. Mr. Smith continues to make the Rose a spe cialty, and although the field is still fairly well contested he very often manages to outstrip- his competitors. The order of Mr. Smith's lists does...

PLANT CATALOGUES. MESSI1S GILES AHD SONS CATALOGUE. This catalogue is a voluminous one, and contains the names, and in most cases de scriptive notes, of quite a botanical collec tion of plants. Collecting species and varieties for the past thirty-five years, and poEEessed of every variety of soil and site suitable for nursery gardening that this colony affords, this firm has been enabled, through the many advantages at their command, to get together an extensive (rRtherintr of nlantn at a p.nmimrn.tivfi]v trifling cost, although the whole cost of forming such a collection as it at present exists in their several nursery gardens has been such as would deter many from making a similar attempt. This firm still stands to the front in offer ing ' hardy' plants, so called in European tnd American gardens, numbers of which, do not come under the meaning of that term in anything like its broadest sense in this country. This remark is necessary because the members of the firm, owning as they...

In the absence of the chairman Mr. A. Oliver was voted to the chair. A discussion arose on the advisability of making an efioit to increase the membership of the association.

Ward, and carried unanimously — 'That persons msy be admitted members of this branch on giving an IOU, pay able in December, for the amount of subscrip tion.' — Mr. B. Jacobs gave notice that he wauld bring on for discussion at the next meeting ' The best means of providing a water suoply for Wandearah;' and Mr. IS. J. Hector i...
