Farming in the North-West. LESSONS OF DRY YEARS. (Written for the Show Supplement.) [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

Farming in the North-West. LESSONS OF DRY YEARS. (Written for the Show Supplement.) Uncertain climatic conditions dur ing the, last three years in the north west of Victoria have proved how ne cessary is good cultivation in order to carry on farming operations with any degree of success. Early fallow ing has proved to be of inestimable value in seasons of light rainfall. By this means the maximum quantity of moisture has been conserved in 'be soil, and it is remarkable how crops on well-worked land have held out during dry periods. Last year the season was so backward, and the rainfall so light at the time that it was most needed, that many farm ers almost despaired of getting a sat isfactory harvest. At the eleventh hour there was a good fall of rain, and this saved the situation. Through a long spell of dry weather the crops seemed to be in a precarious condi tion, but the moisture conserved in the soil stood to them and sustained them to a surprising extent, and after the rain ca...

Stopping to Count It. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

Stopping to Count It. If the Sassenach has deep-rooted convictions regarding the "meanness" of the Scot, the Scot has himself to blame, for he seems to delight in no thing more than poking fun at this Al leged characteristic of his race, or at any rate at a canny quality which is often confused with meanness. Arm.-Sergeant "Sandy" Lawrence, <*f "C" (Dumbarton) Company of the 9th A. and S. Highlanders, who is a bailie of the historic burgh, tells an amus ing story of the time when he won the Queen's Prize in 1882. Sandy expected that his £250 would be presented two days later, along with the other prizes, by the Duchess of Teck, and received with surprise the advice that he should proceed forthwith to the cashier. He went, and finding he had to deal with a genial old compatriot, he in quired why he was not to -receive his money from the hands of her Royal Highness. "They used to do that," he said. "Why don't they do it now?" A twinkle came into the old man's ~ eyes as he r...

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

A CLEVER PICKPOCKET. One day, while dining together, the French Ambassador, and a Grand, Duke of Russia were discussing tha cleverness of the pickpockets of their1* respective countries. The Grand Duke claimed that the Russian pickpocket was the more skilful. Seeing the Ambassador in- , credulous, he told him he would, without knowing it, be relieved of bis watch before leaving -the table. . He then telephoned to the head of the police to send at once the clever est pickpocket he could lay his hands on. - 'The man came, * and was put into livery, and was told to wait at table, with the other servants. He was to give the Grand Duke a sign directly he had done the trick. But this was not given very soon, for the * Ambassador was very wary, ' and always kept on the alert, and held his hand on his fob, even when conversing with the most distinguish ed guests. At last the Grand Duke received the preconcerted signal. He at once re quested the Ambassador to tell him the time. The latter tr...

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

Spring Song. Sitting entranced in my dear old arm chair, My thoughts turn to love, for spring's in the air! My blood rushes faster, and fain would I sing The rapture that comes with the pres ence of spring. But all of a sudden I yell (even swear). The cause of it all? Why, the spring in the chair. The old padding's gone, and a sudden sharp sting Unpleasantly heralds the presence of spring.

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

CARROT CULTURE. The carrot is sadly neglected as a field crop in many parts (says a writer in the "Farmers' Gazette") and hav ing grown it largely for many years, I must say that it deserves more atten tion from the stock farmer. It is cer tainly more expensive to grow than turnips or mangels, hut when obtained is far more valuable. One of the best kinds is the "White Belgian, which is a heavy cropper, and will produce 16 tons per acre; it is a splendid root for dairy cows in winter, especially whero butter is made, to which it imparts both color and fine flavor, besides in creasing the quantity yielded. The ground intended for carrots should be well manured with farmyard ma nure in the autumn and ploughed to a fair depth; the drills should be about 14in. apart, and the plants thinned to 6in. between them in the rows. V little superphosphate should be drilled with the seed, and it is a good plan to add a little barley, which quickly indicates the rows, and enables hoe ing to be done...

DON'T WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

DON'T WORRY. Don't worry, though above your head The threatening storm clouds meet. The rainbow as of yore shall spread Its sign of promise sweet. The flowers fled when winter grey Proclaimed again his cruel sway, Yet early blossoms smile and say, "Don't worry." Don't worry, though the noontide find Your footsteps faltering. The morn's glad hopes left far be hind— The day its joy shall bring. When sunset's radiant curtains fall, Sleep's angel, ready at the call Of night, shall whisper low to all, "Don't worry." Don't worry, though with little good Your eager quest seem fraught. He that has striven as he could Has striven as he ought. Ask not how destiny was planned, The little that we understand Is eloquent with the command, "Don't worry."

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

Quite Mistaken. "Mistakes are sometimes made among the medical fraternity which are very funny," says Dr. Carrel, of the Rockefeller Institute. "A senti mental young man sent the song. 'There's a Sigh in the Heart,' to the charming daughter of a well-known physician. The young man had writ ten the title on a slip of paper at tached to the outside of the music. "The young woman opened it in her father's study and the slip of paper bearing the words 'There's a Sigh in the Heart,' fell on the doctor's desk. The physician, finding the slip, ex claimed:— " 'What unscientific rubbish is this? Who ever heard of such a case?' "On the slip of paper he wrote the following, after which he returned it to the young man's address, which was on the reverse side:— "'Mistaken diagnosis; no sigh in the heart possible. Sighs relate almost en tirely to the lungs and diaphragm.'" A certain politician has the happy knack of being able to parry incon venient interruptions with some smart retort that immed...

THE POULTRY INDUSTRY AND SOME REASONS OF FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

THE POULTRY INDUSTRY AND SOME REASONS OF FAILURE. Lecture Delivered by H, V. Hawkins Before the Railway Institute. Progress of the poultry industry during the past five years has been remarkable, yet it is barely thirteen years ago since I was sent into the Lrouiburn Valley to lecture to farm ers and their sons, to urge them to go into the industry, that the title "industry" was scouted by many of my audience as ridiculous. The extent to which the business of growing eggs and the producers of eggs has developed so much, that even the fancier has to admit that it has become a leading industry, and its expansion is sure. The old breeder of a few years hack, whose pride it was to breed a dozen, or, perhaps with a fair am ount of success, fifty, good Wyandot tes or Rocks, considered himself fully qualified to talk poultry for a week— the question of increasing the produc tiveness of the hen never entered his mind—consent only on feather and form, so as to catch the "nudge's eye, he cert...

Lucerne Hay and Chaff. Their Making, Handling and Marketing. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

Lucerne Hay and Chaff. Their Making, Handling and Marketing. By F. Ditzell, Assistant Inspector oE Agriculture, New South Wales. As the above title indicates, this paper deals only with the making, handling and marketing of lucerne hay and chaff, and no attempt is made to deal with any of the cultural opera tions required to actually produce the crop fit for cutting for hay, or with the lucerne seed crop. Every, care should be exercised in cutting, curing, storing and preparation for market of lucerne hay and chaff, so as to produce a product capable of commanding the highest' prices in the markets. Lucerne hay is more diffi cult to cure than wheaten or oaten hay, and improper methods soon re sult in loss. Bright, dry, green leafy hay, free from grass, weeds and other rubbish, and carefully and attractively baled, commands the highest prices, as also does prime,- dry, green, well-cut chaff, in which the leaf has not been powdered during the operation of chaff cutting. There should b...
