WOOLPACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

WOOLPACKS. The position in Australia now is very serious, supplies being practically ex hausted. Shortshipments, on account of strikes in Calcutta, the outbreak of war causing a shortage of freight spaca, and the destruction of the S.S. Janus cargo by fire, have brought' about the present un fortunate si;uation. A boat'is due herein about 14 days'time, but it is understood that the packs on board have been disr.' posed of. . Other boats are reported to be sailing from Calcutta this month; and a small supply may reach Melbourne abou" the middle of October, but from present appearances there can belittle relief before the beginning of November.

The Dying Volunteer. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

The Dying Volunteer. (By E. H., Wanalta). Come, lift me on the verandah, boys, and ! let the night-winds kiss My fevered, burning temple ; far below I can see the river gleaming—it was just a night like this That I parted from my sweetheart long ago. It was here that I sat dreaming on that moonlit night of yore, Far away the lonely curlews moaned and wailed ; I was dreaming of the glories that the future held in store— 'Twas the night before the first contingent sailed. Strains of sofr, seductive music, and the tramp of many feet, And the ring of girlish laughter, low and clear, Was wafted from the ball-room, but the air was cool and sweet— And was pleasant—pondering In the moonlight here. And ray mind in fancy wandered o'er the ocean's heaving breast, Where the-tents were pitched beneath the open sky— Where the soldiers lay in slumber, with nought to break their rest Save the stamping of the chargers tethered nigh. And my mind wove glorious fancies of the days that were to come— Of...

Wallls Bros.' Ovens and Coppers. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

Wallls Bros.' Ovens and Coppers. The cast-iron revolving copper fur nace, which turns on its own bed, so that it can he revolved with ease with out moving, and when the wind is blowing the smoke the wrong way, still keeps its place in the estimation of users of these articles, and those in need of a copper and furnace would do well to inspect these before build ing, as it is a distinct advantage to building a copper into brickwork. This firm is wide-famed for their excellence in the manufacture of one-fire stoves and ranges. Their "Bobs," which con sumes so little fuel (wood or coal); are in great demand, and are well suit ed for small family requirements. The larger "Bobs," with or without copper boiler, are now in great request, and bid fair to supersede other stoves. Somehow, the moment a man has surrendered the key of. his heart to a woman he begins to think about changing the lock.

HOLIDAY "DO'S" AND "DONTS." Some Good Advice about Packing, Eating, Smoking, and Amusement. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

HOLIDAY "DO'S" AND "DONTS." Some Good Advice about Packing, Eating, Smoking, and Amusement. What do women generally forget to take with them when they go for a holiday? In his recently published book, "Holi days, and How to Use Them," Dr. Charles D. Musgrove, M.D;, confesses that he dobs not know, but he suggests that men often forget to take a watch key and to pack a shaving brush. "Packing-up is too often not only a form of madness, but there is not even any method in it," he writes. "There is only one efficient way of doing it, and that is-by sitting down, with plenty of time to spare, and making a list of all the articles required. The easiest way is to begin with the crown of the head and work down to the soles of the feet. "Pray that it may be a cold, wet day when you do your packing, for then you''will'put in plenty of warm cloth ing, strong boots, leggings and a waterproof." . . > A few cheap cushions are frequent ly, Dr. Musgrove points out, very use ful and welcome thin...

GREEN MANURING. An Important Point. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

GREEN MANURING. An Important Point. Simply turning, or lialf-turning, vege table matter half into the soil does not ensure that the proper ferment will take place. It is the complete incorpor ation with the soil that hastens such de cay. The worked fallow is much bet ter than the unworked fallow. On the latter, nitrification has not set in, and this is why land in orchards should be well-rolled after turning in green or soiling crops during the later win ter or.early spring, and should be fol lowed with light cultivation, so as to induce nitrification. Turning vegetable matter half into the soil during the summer is beneficial in the .way ox keeping the top part of the soil open, enabling any rain to get well down, besides keeping the lower part cooler during the hot season. Beyond this, there is nothing gained from such; it certainly is not converted into the necessary humus until it is thorough ly incorporated with the soil. "Run~. upstairs, Tommy, and bring baby's nightgown," sai...

West Wimmera Prospects. (Written for the Show Supplement.) [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

West Wimmera Prospects. (Written for the Show Supplement.) Notwithstanding the dryness of the season up to the end of August, the crops, in the West Wimmera are hold ing their own, and if a good fall of rain is experienced they will yield heavier than last year, and will, as a whole, be cleaner. The early-sown crops have suffered more than those which were late sown, and it is only on the red ground that they are patchy. All the sandy loam crops are so far very good. Oats, however, will almost be a failure. The area under crop this year will exceed last year's estimate. Those farmers who went an for fallowing extensively will this year have the best crops. Thanks to the efforts of the Nhill A. and P. So ciety in securing Mr. A. E. V. Rich ardson, M.A., B.Sc., Superintendent of Agriculture, to judge the Nhill farm competitions and. deliver lectures on farming practices in Nhill, farmers have gone in for a better method of cultivation. Mr. Richardson's recom mendations were carefully ...

Lord Minto and the Sentry. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

Lord Minto and the Sentry. A capital story which Lord Mint-/ used to delight in telling was of an experience he had while he was Viceroy of India. One morning in Simla he wanted to speak to the Com mander-in-Chief of the Indian Army before the lattter started work for the day, so he set off unattended to pay an early call. When he arrived at the Commander-in-Chief's official residence he found his way barred by a sentry, who apparently did hot recognise the visitor. Lord Minto explained that he want ed to see the Commander-in-Chief, hut the sentry declined to allow him . to pass. "But I am the Viceroy," protested his lordship. The sentry looked at him with a pitying smile. "Ah," he said, thoughtfully, "we gets all sorts 'ere. Last week we 'ad a cove what kidded 'isself 'e was Queen Victoria's grandfather. We 'ad to put" 'im in a strait-waistcoat, so you'd better push off."

HARMFUL BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

HARMFUL BACTERIA. Further knowledge has been obtain ed of that voracious creature, an amoe ba, which it was held destroyed the fertility of certain soils by devouring the beneficent bacteria. The ways of • the creature are now to be investigat ed in a new and special establishment. The discovery was made not long since by the men of science at Rothamstead, Hertfordshire, the first experimental farm in the world. This beast, which has now been photographed with the bacteria visible in his maw, is strong ly suspected of making all greenhouse soils "sick." He eats up—he has. now been caught redhanded at the work— the little beneficial bacteria; and in their absence the soil grows sick, and from a practical point often becomes useless after two years and must be carted away at great expense. This market gardener's laboratory or ex perimental station, built at Waltliam Cross, Essex, has at the most imme diate object to carry further the dis covery made at Rothamstead by Mr. Russell, Mr. ...

The editor slowly shook his head. "Don't do that," he murmured. "Why, that letter is what I referred to!"

HOW LIME IS LOST TO THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

HOW LIME IS LOST TO THE SOIL. There is continual loss of lime every year from the soil, arising from several causes. (1) It naturally sinks—per haps more slowly in arable land than*, in pastures or meadows,, because in arable land the plough is continually bringing a portion to the surface again —but even then it gets at last beyond the reach of the plough, so that either a new dose must be given to the up per soil, or a deeper ploughing to bring it up again to the surface. (2) Then the crops annually carry away a portion from the soil. Accord ing to Professor Johnston, the follow ing crops, including grain and straw or tops and bulbs, carry off respective ly:— Lime. 25 bushels wheat, about .. 131b. 40 bushels barley .. .. .. 171b. 50 bushels oats 221b". 20 tons turnips .. .. .. .. 1181b. 8 tons potatoes, 401b. 2 tons red clover 771b. 2 tons rye grass 301b.
