EARTHWORMS AND THEIR WORK Good Friends to the Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914

EARTHWORMS AND THEIR WORK Good Friends to the Farmer. Most persons have noticed the tracks of earthworms on damp paths, after a night's rain, and the little heaps of earth cast up among the prass; but few, probably have thought of the great number of earthworms in the ground, and of the immense amount of work tliey do, and of the benefit they confer on land, plants and animals. A visit at nigh?, with a lantern, to a grassy spot would • . show many worms, some crawling about, others with tails in their bur rows, feeling around for food, etc. Darwin, the famous naturalist, who observed them for nearly forty years, . gives their number as about 53,000 to the acre for garden laud; while, for field land, there would probably be about half '.hat number. Poor land in a dry district.has few worms, while rich land in a well-watered country has very many, a New Zealand record giving 300,000 to the acre. The Making of the Burrow. Worms are very timid, and seldom come out in tho daylight. They_...

MEDITATIONS OF A COW. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914

MEDITATIONS OF A COW. Here I am, just a scrub cow, but what ilo 1 care. 1 have a good home. To be sure, the -wind blows in through the cracks in winter, and, as I don't get enough feed to both keep me warm and make milk too, I just natur ally don't make the, milk. What do 1 care? A cow has to look out for her self. I just lay off and take a vacation j for three or four months during the ! 1 winter. Old, dry cornstalks don't taste very good anyway, and, besides, a cow isn't supposed to kill herself giving milk. Evidently the boss keeps me just to look at. Ho says he always did like to see a good, slick-looking cow, and does not like to milk in the winter anyway, and, besides, he thinks there is no money in dairying if a man counts his time worth any thing. Of course, after my calf is born, I give a big mess of inilk for a little while, hut what is the use of keeping , it up when I can live without work , by just looking nice all the time. The other day I came down to the barn about t...

CHAPTER XXIV. Volunteer or Pressed Man? [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914

CHAPTER XXIV. Volunteer or Pressed Man? A stream of men and women In evening dress was pouring into tfie great pink and gold dining-room. It was "the" place to dine at in London just then, the last word in luxury— until some new capitalist should come along with something still more sin fully extravagant. : Herepath's lips curled scornfully as i lie saw the flashing jewels, the expen sive dresses, and the fleet of gleaming cars that came purring gently up to >tha pavement. What these people wasted in a year would keep a hun dred families in comfort and happi ness. There was not one of them who would have lent him a sovereign to protect him from starvation, and yet he luid something hidden in tlie back of his mind that would have meant a fortune to half of them. Vet perhaps the show of gaiety was not all as easy and devoid of care as it appeared. For instance, he did not look like poverty himself with his Bend-street cut dress clothes, his im maculate linen and polished shoes. The...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. CHAPTER XXIII. A Glimpse of the Gems. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE/ Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. CHAPTER XXIII. A Glimpse of the Gems. The thing was done, the boats were | burnt, the Rubicon was crossed. There I nad been a conspiracy to deprive Herepath of the fruits of his toil, and if he were to get nothing he would see io it that the plotters were in no better case. He no longer doubted the existence of the conspiracy. It had been amply proved when he found Daniel Harley in his workshop. In bitterness of spirit and the heat of the moment he had defied the father of the girl whom he had hoped to make his wife. Evidently the man was a criminal; indeed his myuterious lite in the strange riverside house pointed to that. Some day the police would lay hands 011 him and a great scandal would result. What was to become of Enid then? Ilerepath groaned as he thought of it. In or dinary circumstances it would not have much mattered. His love foi Enid was a pure and...

GIPPSLAND AND ITS PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914

GIPPSLAND AND ITS PROSPECTS. It would be idle to assert that at the moment of''writing the prospect or tiiis favored province of Victoria are particularly .•■bright; indeed, that conld be searccly said of any portion o£ Victoria. On the other hand, there is not the slightest cause for assum ing that there is about to ensue a sea son of stress, for the resources of the district are undeniably great, and matters, even taking recent events which may affect the markets into consideration, are very much better .than they were during the iirst few month*; of the year. The copious rains of July have had a most beneficial ef fect upon both agricultural and pas toral matters, the crops are forward, and a supply of grass for our own re quirements is assured. One of the most pleasing signs of prosperity is to be found in noting the vast increase in the sheep-growing In dustry. Time was when sheep were almost anathema throughout the length and breadth of Gippsland; but now the sheep may be coun...

CLIPPING UDDERS AN AID TO CLEANLINESS. Advising that the udders of dairy cows should be clipped, Mr. H. E. Dvorachek, of the Colorado Agricul tural college, writes as follows:— "It is not uncommon among dairy cows to find the udder covered with a dense growth of long hairs, which, although they may be of some protec tion to the udder, nevertheless, from the standpoint of sanitation and com I fort to the cow during milkjng are a detriment. Under ordinary farm con ditions they are generally covered ! with filth, and even iu the best-kept dairies, unless clipped, collect some , dust and filth. Furthermore, because of their location, it is highly probable that some of them will find their way into the milk-pail during milking. In order that such conditions may not occur, these hairs should be clipped j close once or twice each year, there i by preventing collection of filth and [ permitting greater ease in washing the udder. I "It has been my experience that | 'kickers' are also develop...

THE FARM TEAM. A Few Practical Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914

THE FARM TEAM. I A Few Practical Notes. By Ploughboy. We are continually hearing that men to work the teams are hard to procure. No. doubt that is so. Farm hands nowadays prefer casual and rouseabout work to a settled job like that of driving a team. The plough man's job is one that requires very constant attention and work, where as the man who takes on fencing, gorse-work, or any odd job about a place can get a day off now and again without throwing things out of gear to any great extent. Then the plough man's hours are Jong. He lias to be up early in the morning, while the fencer or gorse-cutter may be in bed till the word for breakfast is sound ed. At night he has to feed and cover after five or six o'clock, and then after tea he has to be on hand to turn his team out, or to get some ^ one to do it for him. The rouseabout ! —provided he is not the cowboy—may | go straight in from his work, ?.nd_is i ,npt bothered with anything till next I ■ jxidraing comes. J Still, I .think a t...

Oakley, of Stafford shire Reef, paid a visit to Deep Greek, and grassed 1-1 trout averag ing over 31b each. The Pitfiekl re cord is thus easily broken. That Mr E. William's dog. The j Echo, secured the laurels at the Coach and Horses fox terrier cours ing match last Saturday. The dog seemed to thoroughly know the game throughout. That the secretaries of the Ber ringa Catholic bazaar, Mesdames G. Reitze and C. M'Casker, anticipate a profit of about £70. This amount will more than wipe off the debt on the Presbytery.

SUGAR OF MILK. A New Industry in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914

SUGAR OF MILK. I ! A New Industry in New Zealand. Many years ago the first cheese fac tory in New Zealand was opened at Edendale, and quite recently there has been erected at Edendale another large factory, where at the ooenin;; of next season's dairying, the manufac ture of sugar of milk will be com menced. It is fitting that the new factory should be beside the juildiag where the first public cheese factory was established that demonstrated so handsomely that there was "sugar in milk," and there is every reason to thirtk that the promoters of the latest industry in connection with dallying will reap the same golden "return. It is not quite a year since the idea of establishing the sugar of milk factory took definite shape, but when the pro ject was fully explained, those who understood a good proposition were not slow to recognise in the new ven ture an industry that gave every in dication of success. It was mainly due to the efforts of two Dunodin gentlemen, Messrs. Neill and Fin...

ANTIQUITY OF AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914

ANTIQUITY OF AGRICULTURE. When our ancestors were untutored savages agriculture in China was at an advanced stage. The knowledge o£ agriculture possessed by the ancient Chinese seems at this distance o£ time almost incredible. The popular bal lads of China, three thousand years old, selected from the writings of Con fucias, contain many stories and poems 011 the agriculture of that time. Some of these have been translated from Chinese into English by the Rev. \V. Jennings, M.A. Here is a Chinese song of "harvest home" three thousand years old: Clear the witch-grass, clear the scrub: Ploughs the soddened soil shall grub; Thousand couples weed the ground, Crossing swampy field and bound; There the master, there the son, Younger sons—aye, every one. Strong men here, assistants there. Hear them o'er their (midday) fare. Husbands eye their wives with pride, Wivss cling to thair husbands' side. Now the sharpened shears are in— On south acres they begin. Sown is grain of every kind. Living...

Framing the Estimates. SANE POLICY OF CRS POYNTON AND BLAKELEY. SURFACEMEN TO BE APPOINTED. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914

Framing me Esiimaies. SANE POLICY OF CRS POYNTON AND BLAKELEY. SURFACEMEN TO BE APPOINTED. At Thursday's meeting o£ the Grenvilleshire Council, Cr Poynton said that, before framing the esti mates for the coming year, it would be well to take into consideration the provisions of the Workers' Com pensation Act as they would apply to council employees. To obviate a lot of complication he would be in favor of the appointment of good, reliable, permanent surfacemen, say two horses and drays and three men. In Leigh shire they found such a system most advantageous. A num ber of small contracts that Gren ville shire let could be done by these men, and there were no end of little things to be done which if attended to in time would save considerable 1 expense, and the roads would be kept in good order. By appointing j permanent men the council would j then know the number o£ men to come unc"er the Act. Cr Kennedy—Years ago, before my time, the council kept a staff of men. Some of the older c...
