OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 3 July 1914
I:'OF;JIURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticusa.") "'Agriculture, is an art based on science and capable of great develop ment and expansion as the scientific principles on which it is based become more and more completely understood." says Mr. A. L. V. Richardson, M.A., B.Sc., Agricultural Superintendent for the Department of Agriculture, in an excellent article in the "Journal of Ag riculture." That embodies a hard fact that cannot be too often or too emphatically impressed upon the men who have the destinies of this country in their keeping-the men who are de veloping its rural production. Mr Rich ardson points out: "The primary object of the scientific investigator of agricultural problems is to discover the principles or laws under lying agricultural phenomena in order to explain and also anticipate farm practice. The investigator may pro Scoed in the elucidation of these prob lems either by observation or by ex periment. The use of definitely plan nod, carefully conducted experiments is ...
THE FUTURE OF PASPALUM. RENOVATING OLD PADDOCKS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 3 July 1914
THE FUTURE OF' PAS PALUM. RENOVA'iING OLD PADDOOKS A recentissue of the "-Farm Bulle tin" (Brisbane) contains some interesting notes on the renovation and management of paspalum paddocks which should be carefully read by those who have much land in this grass. The notes are by Mr McMillan, manager of one of the New South Wales experimental farms. "Sixteen years ago the roots of the pas palum were being sold at extraordinary high prices ; to-day there are very few farmers who would not pay high prices to have it eradicatel from their farms. It seems hardly fair, however, to attach the whole fault to the grass, as the farmer has been taking all he possibly could from the ground and giving nothing back in return, It is well known that the production of milk is one of the greatest sources of robbing soil of plant food, and yet I do not suppose that during the period that pas palum has been grown 5 per cent. of the dairy farmers on the northern rivers have applied one dressing of manure ...
THE BUSINESS OF FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 3 July 1914
- THE BUSINESS OF FARMING;. ": There are three factors whioh gov ern suocess in such an enterprise as far ming-(1) Knowledge; (2) executive .ability; (3) business abihty." . Such is the opening paragraph in a page of Hopkins' book, "Soil Fertility," and we think.there can be no better text for a discussion on your business-the production of crops for profit. KNOWLEDGE. STake the first word-"Knowledge." :Without knowledge of the why and wherefore of most things relatmng to rthe reproduction of plants, what a haphazard venture crop-raising is. Start a good city business manager of recognised ability on a farm, wlth out any idea of how things are done, against an experienced practical far mer, both with otherwise equal chan oes, and who wins. Though the far mer may be a poor business man, his chances of success are enormously grea ter than the novice's. Knowledge is the first essential, but how many experienced farmers oven are fully equipped with that acquain tanco of all those sound ...

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 3 July 1914
MELBOURNE LETT?' (From our Special Correspondent). If we usay take th experience' of Brighton peuple as a pointer, it is not adlsable to agitate too energetically tr the general adoption-of the auto mitic telephone as, a means of escape from the dulcet-toned ' "engaged," and the many other irritations that attend the use of this now necessary institu tion under the existing system. So far the ?anipulatiosn of the automatic applar:atcs on the Brighton eYxchan:ge has br?en ,,ore productive of the conditions of brain storm than the old systenm. The combinations in many cases refuse to work at all, and whuen they do, the rssalt is to inalke conimunication unde sir'd at both cuds. There is the hope that after a while these defects will be remediedl. Meanwhile Brighton's lan guage is more suitable for J. B. Shaw's latest plays than for use in the busi ncs places and homes of respectable citizens. w'e are asi nero worslippers. Tjhat is an important part of Nature's plan to maintain the sur...
