SUBSTITUTES FOR POTASH. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 17 December 1914

SUBSTITUTES FOR POTASH. Votash manures are required in course of time on all land where there is anything. like intensive culture. in England the bulk of such manures were hitherto imported from Germany, and one result of the war has been to throw the country largely upon its own limi ted resources. .Most soils contain a potash in some proportion, but many of them, especially those of a light texture, cannot bo relied upon for a full crop, without a dressing of a pot ash manure. The question is—how is it to be obtained? In the dilema, the Uritish Board of Agriculture has come along and (remarks the "Field") has suggested the gathering together and burning of reins© wood, weeds, and other waste material, the ashes to be conserved for application in the spring to such land and crops as most need potash. Those who have access to the sea, have a readier means or making good the deiicieney. Seaweed is a valuable source of potash, as well as a general health-giver. Many al ready make a po...

THE— MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXX. (JUiNJJlTlONy 01'- JfEAOK. It was n lonely, miserable day, lor Ida Duval did not appear either ior luncheon or dinner, and the hours drugged by so slowly that it seemed as it bedtime would never come. There was no telegram from Honey combe Lodge, so she was ignorant ol the result of tlio search, and every bell that rang i\ minded her of the friend who would never come again. She tried to read, but lier thoughts wandered away from tho book; she sat down to play, and poured out her heart in such doleful music- that sho burst int.) tears and deserted the music stool. , . When ten o'clock struck, siio looked at tho clock and longed to go to bed, but she stayed up because she was bo_ iinxiou3 to seo her husband, and hear his news. He might have had some consideration for lier anxiety. . It was just like the generality of husbands.

WHITEWASH FORMULA. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 17 December 1914

WHITEWASH FORMULA. Ordinary Whitewash.—This is made by slaking about 10 pounds of quick lime with 2 gallons of water. The litue is placed in a pail and the water poured over it, after which the puil is covered with an old piece of carpet or cloth and allowed to stand for about an hour. With an insuf ficient amount of water, the lime i" "scorched" and not converted into hydrate; on the other hand, too muoh water retards the slaking by lowering ti:e heat. "Scorched" lime is generally lumpy and transparent, hence the use of the proper amount of water for slaking and an after addition of water to bring it to a brush consistency. Factory Whitewash (interiors).—For walls, ceilings, posts, etc. (1) Sixty-two pounds (1 bushel) or quicklime, slake with 15 gallons of water. Keep »arrel covered until steam ceases to rise. Stir occaiion ally to prevent scorching. (2) Two and one-half pounds rye flour beat up in half gallon of ocrtd water,, then add 2 gallons of boiling water. - — (3) Two and on...

SPRAYING FOR BLACK SPOT. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 17 December 1914

SPRAYING FOR BLACK SPOT. The efficiency of spraying against black spot in the apple and pear de pends very greatly upon doing it at the light time. The object, as explained by i'roiessoi' McAlpine, is to attack the spores, just as they are putting forth their delicate germ tubes, seeking to penetrate the young and growing tis sues of tho plant. The time at which tliii occurs depends on the nature of the seasou, which hastens or retards the development of the fungus, as it does that of the tree itself. It has been discovered that the germinating spore has a certain solvent action upon the dried deposits of copper compound left by the Bordeaux of copper-soda mixture, and in fact the process of germination itself sets free the poison wnich kills the spores that are in coil tact with it. Thus by spraying too early, when the tree is quite dormant, »t a»e applying iuugieide before it is wanted, and subjecting it to the in iluonce of rain and other agecnies which may wash it off. On the ot...

Tiie future of a large proportion of ] that part of the great Border Downs country, knotvn aa the Border Downs ; distriot, South Australia, lies in the ' direction of sheep.
