SOIL FERTILITY AND CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 March 1915
SOIL- FERTILITY AND CULTIVA TION. "If vain and fruitless is the yearly toil, We ought to blame the culturc-not the soil."' Fertility may be abundant ill the soil and yet be not available for the plants. Fertility is often bound up firmly in hard clods, which the roots of growing crops cannot enter, and so re cover the plant food that may be with in easy reach. Soils are formed by the disintegration of rocks, alnd by the de velopment of fertilising elements inci dent to the growth andt decay of vege tation. Fertility has to be dleveloped in various ways. ;Alternate rain and sunshine, the heatl of summer, and the frosts of winter, ploughing antd harrow ing the soil, working it over and over again, in connection with the applica tion of stable manure and commercial fertilisors, are "ll oilectual means of developing available fertility. We know now, thanks to the discoveries in chemical science, that it rests with the individual to prevent the impoverish mIlleut of the soil-similar to w...

FROM FLOUR TO BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 March 1915
FROM FLOUR TO BREAD. An old English flour millor writes in '. Hawkes Bay Tribune": A ton of flour in England of 2,2.10 Ibs., or eight sacks of 2801bs, will pro duce o n a average between 1300 and 11,10 loaves of l21b weight. Bakers in England weigh off dough at 21b 3oz, or 21b 1I nczs., the extra ounces allow ing for owvporation in baking. Water, salt, liothtoos and yeast ar0 added to tho flour to ferment and nmake dough. An avorage of 1,350 loaves from a ton of flour at. 5d per 21b loaf, is £82/5/10. With Ilour at £16 per ton, comnnent is superfluous. Fifty-four bushels wheat produc 2,210lbs 'our, namely, one ton English weight. Offal Iaysi cost of nilling.
VEGETABLE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 March 1915
.VEGETABLE GARDEN., •All vacant: plots should be: given a liber?al dressing 'of stable nimuure, and ntliellw ell and 1deeply dug. For winter gro;tl; the beds should be elevated somewhat above the ordin ary summer level That is, the path surhface may bIe on a lower level, the plot soil being well. thrown up and boldly ridged. This will give a certain amount of drainage, and will insure iarmoi 'and better soil; the vegetables .should succeed more in this class of bed than any tother. The vegetable garden, and also the seed bed, should be kept fi'eo of any wcdds, and a good cultivation keptl up all through. Seedlings of cabbagcs, cauliflowers, lettuces, and celery may be trainsplanted out; and seeds of cabbage, cauliflower, let tuco. early pias, sw.d?e turnils, car: rot, parsnip, and early onions may bo sow1n.
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 March 1915
O?' RURAL INTEREST (By "'Rusticus."'') A quite now and striking aspect has been imparted to the efforts to bring producer and consumer into moro direct touch by recent developments on the part. of the Co-operative Soelling Com panics. Those organisations have safe ly weathered the stress of the inaugural period of their existence. The pro pheelies for their. speedy disintegration, which were so freely spread around dur ing the earlier part- of their careers have coefoiunded the prophets. Each year has strengthened themu and they are steadily widening their range of actlvity in the interests of the man on the land. That much exploited indivi dual is consequently getting more of what is his due. I-le is getting further away from the condition of things which, not so very long ago, frequently found him at his post office studying with rueful countenance the account sales from the city for a consignment of produce which left him actually in debt to the philanthropic people who had handl...

TO PICK UP A COLT'S HIND LEG [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 March 1915
TO PICK UP A COLT'S HIND LEG The blacltsmith's lmethod of resting one hand on a horse's hip and using .the claw of a hammer to pick up the hind foot is not always the .best and safest mcthod~ , where a colt is the sub ject. A coultemporar, gives the following as a better plan:-Load the horse for ward until the -hind leg to be picked up is well forward of the other one. Next sloop dtown and pass the hand nearest the horse quickly inside the hind leg-just above the fetlock grasping firmly at that point, and pull ing the back tendon inwards with the fingers. Thus the leg can be raised andl drawn forward with ease, andt any reasonably stronfg man ucan retain his hold so long as the back tendon is pulled inside. 'rite safety of this me thiod lies in the feet that a horse can ,ot kick with the hind !.eg that is for wd,, andl must draw it back before hlie can effect damIage. If a mian misses hlis graL ait tlhe leg, therefore, there is ample time for hiim to get clear be fore the horse kick...

NOTES ON NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 March 1915
NOTES ON NATURE. (By "'Naturalist.'") It is a good thing that we are not limited in our appreciation of Nature's 'work by the lack of so-called wealth. Nor is it necessary that we should be scientists or hold any special diplomas in order to feel an enjoyment of outdoor life. Without getting too far away from my subject, in a, very ordinary sense, the wealth of the few means the poverty of the many, but is chere no wealth in the sunshine? And who can claim, an interest in it to the exclusion of anybody else? A mnan may be as poor as a school fly or a church mouse, or anything else that feeds only on atomic intellectual substances, or the still rarer morsels of morality; yet his heart can fill with rapture over the ris ing or setting sun, and his mind be en larged by observance of an insect's ways. After all, our true wealth is that which we assimilate; we can have no other. There is really no such ano maly in the world as a wealth-possessed mnan. No .one can usurp more than he can u...
SUPERPHOSPHATE OF LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 March 1915
SUPERPHOSPHATE OF LIME. Someone has made the remark that the three virtues of plant fertility are nitrogen, potash, and phosphoric acid. and that the greatest of these is phos-' phoric acid. Certainly it may be said that phosphate of lime is the most vital constituent in the formation and nourishment of life in both animals and plants. "The significance and import ance of phosphato in the vital process is obvious, as this ingredient is never failing in all the organised structures of the body," wrote Liebig. "No pho6 phate, no life," is a phrase which sums up its absolutely essential character. And if phosphate of lime is necessary for mankindl and animals, it is equally so for plants, from which animals draw their supplies. "No seed suitable to become food for man or animals can he found in any plant without the presence and co-operation of phosphate of lime; a field in which phosphate of lime is absent is totally incapable of producing nourishment," and again, quoting from Liebig,...

Last year the authorities of the Mid land Agricultural and Dairy College (N.Z.), ,Icganl an experlment on a field adjoining their farm to test toe ,n tullence of superplosphate and sulphate of potash on the milk yield of cows grazed on pasture land to which tile two mnanurcos had been jointly applied.

OATS IN PIG FATTENING. Experiments have been carried out in Americato comnpare the value of oat milling offals and barley meal for fat toning pigs. The oat feeding meal used was composed chiefly of the outer seed coat of the kernels and layers iim ineodiatcly below, mixecd with a certain amount of meal particles of various grades, and the analysis showed it to contain 3.18 per cent. of witer, 17.US per cent. protein, 9.14 per cent. fat, 59.35 l3cr cent. carbohydrates, 2.02 per cent. crude fibre, and 3.33 per cent. ash. F'or the purpose of the experi ment the barley meal and oat feeding meal wero fed in each ease in conjunc tion with potatoes, roots, bran, a patent mlaize food, sesanie cake, andti fish mneal.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 March 1915
MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.) ICr. Dulnbar, of the Caullield City Council, has just got back after an extended tour which took him through progressive countries. J-e lost no time in showing that the Mayor was right ill saying, inl the course of a graceful welcome to the returned wandlerer. that he had been studlvin! mci and things in other parts of the world and the Council would doubt less benefit as the result of his ob servations. His first project had cer tainly the charm of novelty and his colleagues gave evidence of needing some brcathing space in which to ar rive at a conclusion as to just the amount of virtue there may be in an inlnovatlion which has captured Cr. I)unbar's ardent advocacy. It is a schemeo to construct a model yacht pond jn Caulfield Park. The out standing claim advanced by the very much in earnest sponsor is that it would provide a means for the young lads, and, for a matter of that, "the old lads too," to experiment with a view to worki...
FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 March 1915
FOR WOMEN '.y "Ambroasine.") Last week I had something to say about the economics that could be pur chased by those who are prepared to really look for the means to save. Since then Miss Sandoes, the superin tendent of the College of Domestic Science, has given some valuable hints which deservo the widest publicity pos sible and the closest attention. She says:--' 'Many women do not know how to buy meat. They purchase some ex pensive cut, such as the sirloin, for, say, Gd. a pound, when they could get a 'chuck' roast for 4Ld. Properly treasi;ed, the cheaper cut would be just as good as the sirloin. It is a question of cook ing. The cheaper cut musHt have a long, slow cooking, otthcrwiso the meat will be tough. On the cheap cuts bought for soup there is often mueat that could be cut off the bones for the making of patties. Quite a lot of people are always relying on joints for tlheir meats. It is not unusual for them to have three joints a week, with cold meat on the other four days....

LLYDALE SHIRE STONE CRUSHER. PURCHASED BY TRARALGON SHIRE. At tihe last moeating of the Tra, ralgon Shire Council, a letter woa read from the Lilydale council of fering to sell the stone crusher for £170. The president said Cr Clarke hlad made a good bargdin. Tho first offer was £220. With rent and freight in having to send it back, they would save over £100 inr pur chasing it. The rent was £80 per year. Cr P'cttit: WVhat do you think ol it? It (is said it is a?u old, cum brous, arnd out-of-date machine, and that is thie reason why the Lily dalo council wants to sell it.
