MALALA, APRIL 16. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

MAELAIiA, April 16. The country is looking splendid after the fine rains. The farmers are beginning to think that too much rain is falling, as it will take several good drying days to make the ground fit to go on for ploughing. The traffic on the Wasleys-road is seriously interfered with owing to the Itedbanks-bridge being partly destroyed by the flood, and the constant; rains keep tee river too deep to be forded. ' The xnaudmsr lias naa to drive one coach to the bridge and bave another to meet it, the passengers crossing by plank. —There have been two or three removals from the township lately, Mr. Judd, the Christian minister, has gone $o MelboRxce, -and no appointment has been made to the pastorate yet.— Dr. Carter left laet week, and we -have no doctor in the neighborhood '-The MaUaia Hotel is changing bands, Mr. Heynetfs successor taking charge this week. — The trustees of the institute -have decided to offer the building to the district council in consideration cf -their, taki...

THE APPLE-WORM OR CODLIN MOTH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE APPLE- WORM OB OODLIK M0EH. A number of subperiberB who have heard: of the comparatively recent method of destroying ?; the apple-wormor codlia moth by the uae of poison have written to. ask about themethod of applying it, hoW' much to use. &c. No insect shows the .importance of knowing its habits and those of the plant it infests more strikingly than this. Every observer is aware that the young apple just after it sets has its calyx end. or blossom-end, or 'eye' pointed upwards. In a Bhort time as the fruit becomes heavy with growth, the etem can no longer sustain it in tbiB position and the fruit gradually falls over, the stem curving to accommodate it, and the eye or blossom end points downward. From the fact that the ripe fruit ia always eeen in this. position many persona think that this — the calyx end— is the bottom of the frait and that tbaatem is the top, while the re area is tine. Upon thia habit of the apple ia reversing, its position depends the success of th...

Horticulture. GARDENING FOR THE WEEK. THE PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

^)Qxtknltwct. GARDENING FOR THE WEEK. The Plains. Flowxb Garden,— Advantage should be taken of every fine day to cope with the springing weeds; there ia no operation of greater importance. There can be no time set for the destruction of weeds ; the rule should be to destroy them when in the third leaf. The hoeing should be shallow ; if the ground ia hoed deeply at this time other weed seeda are bronght to the surface, and in a few days it may be necessary to hoe again. Weeds should be hoed np when the third leaf ia formed for this reason — they make their appearance quickly or slowly according to the depth the seeds lie ; when the earliest are in the third leaf those that are deeper, will have formed roots an inch or bo long, and these will be de-. stroyed with those on the surface if the ground is hoed 2 inches deep. This ia the proper depth to hoe for the destruction of weeds ooly. Deep hoeing is not done to destroy weeds merely, but to render the surface friable, in whictr condit...

MOUNT GAMBIER BRANCH—APRIL 4. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

Mount Gajibibb Beakch— Apbil 4. Present — Hessras. J. Umpherston (president), J. Watson, T. Williams, W. Paltridge, and O. Hclloway ; ako Mr. J. B. Brown (Conservator of Fr Tests) and Mr. A. Molueux, [secretary to Central Bureau. The secretary of the Adelaide Bureau wrote enclosing copy of Professor Lowrie's report on tbe bat guano Bent from Crompton for analysis, Professor Lowne said the sample was of relatively small commercial value. If bone dust were at £4 10b. per ton, the sample sent would have been worth 28s, or thereabouts per ton. In the south-east, where the climate is moist comparatively, such guano at 2S3. per . ton ought to repay the farmers well who used it. A discussion ensued, in which it was sug gested that probably a richer sample could be obtained deeper down, It was resolved to obtain further samples and send them in for analysis. The Central Bureau notified that only nine members could be appointed at present to form a branch bureau. As the branch had nomi nated...

(chairman), J. E. Brown (Conservator of ForeBts), H. Kelly, T. Hardy, C. J. Valen tine (Chief Inspector of Stock), and Sir Samuel Davenport.

Specimens of grass which the secretary desig nated 'Chenopodium album' were received from Farina, and which has sprung up since the recent rains. It was stated that the her bage was not poisonous* and the sheep which it was stated had been killed by it it was thought must have died from some oth...

CHEESEMAKING. Mr. J. H. Mourad, Chicago, contributes to the Dumfries Courier the following account of Mi. Drnmmond's system of cheesemaking : —I cannot leave Castle-Douglas without giving you a little report of my first attendance of Mr. Drummond's ocular demonstration in cheesemaking, at the farm of Mr. Me Adam, Whitepark. At G.30 on Wednesday morning I found Mr. Drummond, Mr. McAdam, aud his son busy heating the previous night's milk to 85 degrees, while the morning's milk was strained into the vat. The night's milk had been at 69 degrees, and when we had all the milk in the vat (a splendid one made by John Gray of Stranraer) there were just 76 gallons. At 7.17 the milk had just a barely perceptible smell of commencing ripening, and in making the rennet test it showed coagulation in 27 seconds. One ounce of Hansen's Danish cheese color was added, and at 7.30 3£ ounces of Haneen's rennet extract, diluted with abaut one quart of water, was stirred well into the milk. At 7.40 commenc...

Put him about in different directions forward, backward, to the left- and right, and get him to yield to the bit in these directions. This should be done both in the Btable and yard, and in using the reins for this purpose the trainer should exercise a steady firm pressure on the bit until the colt vielda. whnn th« presEure should be removed at once, in order for him to understand that he has obeyed.
