The dead body of Horne was found two days later in the Breakfast Creek, two miles from the scene of the tra gedy. The man's throat was cut from ear to ear.

Sown Grasses [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
Sown Grasses Two of the Rose worthy paddocks "were sown down to grasses comprising perennial rye grass, cocksfoot, Ken tucky blue grass, prairie grass, and suIla. The mixture has been available for grazing since 190S, or for five years, and the grazing capacity has been:— MonthT * Sheep per acre. April ; .. .. 0.33 May .. .. .. .. .. .. 0.33 June .... 1.39 July 1.53 August 2.02 September .. ..

The grazing value would have been equally good "had the land been left out as ordinary pasture."'
Carrying Capacity [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
Carrying Capacity It is admitted by Professor Perkins that Roseworthy results "do not do full justice to the grazing-" capacity of lu cerne sown in this way. And this, be cause only portion of the fields con cerned were under lucerne; and it is not possible in our results to dissociate the grazing- capacity of those of the fields that were not under lucerne from those which were under the crop. The average per month and for the whole period of three years was as follows:— Month. " Sheep per Acre. April 0.72 May 1.12 June .. .. .. 1.38 July 1.64 August .. .. v. .. .. .. .. 2,52 September .. .. . .. .. 2.85 October .. .. .. 1-50 ■"November .. ..........

Experience With Lucerne. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
Experience With I/ncerne. Professor Perkins has had the fol lowing- areas under lucerne at Bose worthy:—85 acres in 1910-11; 119 acres in 1911-12, and 119 acres in 1912-13. Ac curate records have been kept of the carrying capacity of the crop in order to discover its value on a wheat farm. Referring to lucerne, Professor Perkins explains that it must be. understood that he does not deal with well grown craps under irrigation, or crops sown in land in which the subterranean water supply is within easy reach of the roots. "I have in view," he says, "simply lucerne which has been sown in a cereal crop, and which has estab lished itself more or less well in the Held. In these circumstances its value for grazing purposes is not so great; unfortunately, in our average districts it is no easy matter to get a good stand of lucerne sown in this way; much de pends on the character of the season. In our experience one has quite two failures to one success. The improve ment in the grazing value...
SHEEP HINTS FOR BREEDERS Forage Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
•SHEEP . .. Ov - ' HINTS FOR BREEDERS By J. P. Forage Crops. In previous articles reference was made to rape, kale, turnips, vetches and peas as forage crops for sheep. At Roseworthy Agricultural College, in South Australia, lucerne is sown >vith wheat as a cover crop, with from 21b. to 61b. per acre of seed. It is found that if there is a thunderstorm in January a rich growth of the legume is available in the stubbles for sheep. Sometimes the lucerne is up to tha" backs of the animals, and one can under stand to what extent the grazing capa city of the stubbles is improved. If two good crops are- obtained in five years it is considered that the policy more than repays the outlay, which is small, lumbers of Victorians are trying lucerne in this way with hopeful re sults. At the Werribee Research Sta tion a very fair stand has thus been obtained this year.
RATION FOR DRAUGHT STALLION [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
RATION FOR DRAUGHT STALLION Th© best feed to give a draught stallion during the season, when serv ing about fifty mares is:—Oaten chaff, 181b.; oats, 121b,; maize, 41b.; beans, 31b.; salt, loz. This should be divi ded into .four feeds, the largest to be given at night after the day's travel ling is done. Barley, oats, and lu cerne, as greenstuff, are all good, but lucerne, has the greatest feeding value. If any considerable quantity of greenstuff be given, the ration should be reduced, more especially in the case of lucerne, owing to its high nitrogenous content. Roughly, lib. of the dry feed' mixture should, be deducted for every 21b. of green feed given, but the latter should not be allowed to replace more than oner third of the ration.

HORSES FOR FIELD WORK QUESTION OF SELECTION [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
HORSES FOR FIELD WORK QUESTION OF SELECTION As the bulk or the worn connected with farming occurs in the paddocks, in selecting or "breeding working horses we should give special con sideration to the stamp for pace and general usefulness together with ca pacity for showing condition. Many a horse is of such a build that it never looks well however good its condition. A great number of farmers make the mistake of breeding from what ever sire is convenient regardless of shape or pedigree, with the result that a large percentage of the horses on their farms are of a nondescript type: they eat the feed of a good horse, but it generally takes two of them to do a good horse's work. If a man considers the economic work ing' of his farm as well as its pro ductiveness, he will soon find it false economy to keep a bad horse because he bought it cheap, for in lean years, when" horse feed is valuable, it will soon equalise matters in this respect. "The most suitable class of horse for farming,...

IDEAS | ! A monthly magazine recently wrote "Pig ron is worth twenty dollars a ton. Mix it with an idea—make it into horseshoes— and it is worth ninety dollars. Add more ideas and make knife blades, and it is worth two hundred dollars. Add still more ideas, putting it through a more intricate process, and it emerges as watch springs which are •worth one thousand dollars. The raw iron ■was worth twenty; the ideas added to its ▼alue nine hundred and eighty dollars." Phil lips Ormonde & Co., patent attorneys, 17 (Queen St., Melbourne.

Witness: Yes. i The Chairman: There is no dis crimination between individual manu facturers at all? Witness: Absolut...
RACING DEFENDED GOVERNOR PRAISES SPORT BETTER CLEANSE THAN PREACH [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
'RACING DEFENDED GOVERNOR PRAISES SPORT BETTER CLEANSE THAN PREACH Speaking at the farewell luncheon accorded him on January 26 at the Victoria Park racecourse by the Ade laide Racing Club, Sir Day Hort Bo sanquet, retiring Governor of South Australia, made a defence of racing. "During my residence in South Aus tralia," he said, "I have seen much to excite my admiration in the national resources of the country and the in dustry and perseverance with which it is being developed. But one of the greatest charms of life here-is to be found in the fine manly sports and pas times which exercise an important in fluence upon the formation of the na tional character. Of these sports racing is one of the most interesting, and I am sure that, when properly carried out, the sport is productive of beneficial results. It offers opportunities for pleasant social gatherings, such as we have here to day. It affords amusement and recrea tion to large numbers of persons of all classes, and it undoubte...

MOTOR KILLS CHILD CORONER'S REMARKS MOTOR ACT FAULTY An inquest was held at the Morgue on January 24 concerning the death ot Dorothy Francis Moran, 6*/£. A finding of death from misadventure was re turned. Mary Frances Moran, married woman, of the Star and Garter Hotel, Bridge road, Richmond, said that on January 12 she was travelling from the city with her child Dorothy. They were sitting on the left hand side of the front of the dummy. The car stopped and she put the child down and told her to run for the verandah, as it was raining. A motor was trav elling in the same direction as the tram, but was going much faster. It knocked the child down when she was about three feet from the kerb. Wit ness did not hear the horn sounded. William Wilson, the driver of the motor-car, said he was manager of a furniture factory in Lord street, Rich mond. The reason why he went on the right side of the tram was that there was a cart on the left. He had been told by several policemen that the righ...

HEAVY TRAFFIC TELLS COUNCILS DESIRE ASSISTANCE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
HEAVY TRAFFIC TELLS COUNCILS DESIRE ASSISTANCE Mr. F. W. Hagelthorn, Minister for Public Works, was interviewed to-day by a joint deputation from the Town Council of "Warrnambool and the shire council of that district, which sought assistance in repairing roads which, it was stated, wrere cut up by heavy traf fic in connection with the construction of the breakwater. It was explained that, in the cartage of metal, heavy motor waggons were used, and these had attached to them trailers capable of holding many tons of metal. The roads were being badly treated, and the councils were not in a position, without monetary aid, to keep them in anything like decent re pair. Mr Murray (Chief Secretary), who introduced the deputation, suggested that the charge of repairing the roads should be done in connection with the breakwater scheme. The Minister, in reply, said that Mr Murray's suggestion was worth con sideration. Tinkering with the roada i would not, he thought, be of much good. He asked...
