THE THISTLE ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 July 1914

THE THISTLE ACT At tlio ^armors' Convention at Maryborough this week, Mr J. I). Rankin (Rochester) said that the Vermin Destruction Act had been administered very lightly in his district, where the screw was put on. However, the farmer saw the benefit derived in tho increased carrying I capacity oE the land. The same good result would follow a stricter adminis tration of tho Noxious Weeds Act. If tho act were only as at present no good would result. lie moved : " That the Government be requested to amend the Thistle Act, with a view of its being enforced by the Govern ment, instead of by tho municipali ties." Mr N. G. Rae (Hochestor) seconded tho motion. Ho said that somo northern shires were trying to eradi cate weeds, but others were not, and these pests were growing greator every year, the large areas becoming tho worse infested. Tho complete eradication of weeds in a few years was impossible, and the Thistle Act should not be too stringent. Mr R. Skilbeclc (Koroit) said that it ...

SLEEP FOR THE CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 July 1914

SLEEP FOR THE CHILD. A healthy child for the first two months or so spends most of its timo is'rep, After that a baby should liavo at least two hours sleep in tho forenoon, and one hour in the afternoon, and it is quito possible to teach almost any in fant to adopt this as a regular habit.

Up to tho fifteenth year most young people roquire ten hours, and till the twentieth year, nine hours. After that ago overy ono finds out how much ho or she ro quires, though as a general rule six or eight hours aro necessary. Eight hours' sleep will prevent more nervous de rangement in women than any medi cine can euro.

CLONES Will ?!GAL SOCIETY. The above hold their first socio 1 in the practice ball on Monday night last. Each member had the privilege of inviting another, with the result that there was an attendance of over 70. The programme was opened with a chorus by the choir, which was very acceptable. Then Miss E. Dunstan charmingly sang " The Japanese Love Song." Choruses, " Three Chafers," and " Old Mother Hubbard," followed, and were well received. The president (Cr Rowe) then said he lmd a pleasing duty to perform, and before doing so he made reference to the formation of the male choir, and subsequently, the inclusion of the ladies, whose assistance was willingly given when sought. He spoke of the rapid strides ? the choir had made, which was solely due to their conduc tor (Mr Cutler), in instilling into their hearts and minds the beauties of music, and whose services wero given gratuitously. He instanced the recent concert given in the Creswick town hall, for which the press had highly ...

FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 July 1914

FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. .More and more careful systematic methods of farming are rapidly gain ing ground In this country. The in creasdd price of land makes such es sential to success, and no known sys tom will put farming on a better basis than following Nature's method of keeping up the fertility of the land, and in a great measure this is what green manuring is. Dame Nature had no plough to turn under the fall ing leaves of the bush hills, but she left time to do the work, and it is the accumulated humus so formed from which our bush farmers are reaping their returns to-day. On much of our land .fertilisers will 'be required to produce a good crop for ploughing In, for it Is poor econ omy to pknigh in a poor one. Mo'ney so spent will bo returned a hundred fold, and the permanent fertility of the land built up. On heavy land the ploughing in of such crops as peas, vetches, clover, etc., is particularly valuable, for doing so often converts an unkindly diflicult-to-work lan...

CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 July 1914

CHAPTER XX. Oil August 2 Peter Bellairs saw his wife oft to Melbourne. He had got her an excellent berth, her maid ac companied her, and she was surround ed by every comfort. She had plenty of money an.d a good outfit, and she was going to see the person whom she loved best in the wide world. Yes, of late she felt that she loved Ralph 'better even than her husband, for Bellairs, though kind, was cold and had ceased to show her those little at tentions and to utter those' words of affection which used, to fill her heart. Even at the moment of parting he re mained a distinguished and somewhat hard figure, but his wife, a woman of small brains, had made up her mind that he had never discovered the theft of the diamonds, or he would assur edly. have spoken.to her on the sub ject, and that at the end of a year he would be as glad as in the old days to welcome her back to Sunnyside. At the very last BeHairs forced himself to kiss the woman, whom he regarded as a thief, on lier forehead. H...

IS CLIPPING SAFE? [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 July 1914

IS CLIPPING SAFE? It is not uncommon among dairy cowa 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 fort "to the cow during milking, are a detriment. Under ordinary farm con ditions they are generally covered with, filth, and even in the best-kept dairies, unless clipped, collect some dust and filth. Furthermore, because of their location, it is' highly probable that sQ'me of them will find their way into the milk pail during milking. In order that such condtions may not oc cur, these hairs should be clipped close once or twice each year, there by preventing collection of filth und permitting greater ease in washing the udder.

MANURING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 July 1914

MANURING POTATOES. Potatoes, like all other crops, re quire a complete manure, viz., a ma nure containing nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash, lime also if the soil is deficient in this necessary consti tuent. Nitrogen may lie used in var ious forms-blood and bone, BUlphate of ammonia, or nitrate of soda. If the first is used, it is better to apply it at the time of planting, as it is much slower In its action than either of the others; the sulphate of am monia is sometimes applied at plant ing time also, but it is better applied afterwards as a top dressing when the plants are two or three inches 'high. With regard to nitrate of soda, this is so extremely soluble that it should only be applied when the crop is near ly ready for earthing up. Phosphates may be used in various forms, super, boncdust, or slag, according to the nature of the soil or the particular fancy of the user. In any case, a lib eral dressing is necessary. Potash is best applied in the form of sulphate of potash,...
