THE FARM. FARMERS NEGLECTING LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 19 June 1914
THE FARM. FARMERS NEGLECTING LIME. It is said that (armors ns a class are rather neglecting the uso ol limo ; they are depending too muct on chemical manures, and omitting to give the soil dressing of such a necessary constituent of lime. II so, this is a mntter of regret, be cause the crops vtlll suffer in lienltt and quality. Some chcmicnl ma nures, such as sulphate of ammonie and kainit, uso up the limo in the soil, and all fertilisers, by increasing the crop, increase also the consump tion of lime. It is therefore the pari of a good farmer to see that tin soil of his farm is well supplied. '1 he action of lime hastens the decay of vegetable matter and sweetens soui inn is which may have been more o' less submerged. It increases the (a pillary condition of soil, prevents ft ngoid diseases, and promotes the growth of more nutritive herbage in pastures ; it also decomposes or ganic matter and promotes the im portant process which fo much in evidence at present-' nutrifica tion."

A STATE PRISON. Now York State not only contains ? tlio "Gcorgo Junior Republic," but I also a Stato prison without walls. I This is at Cotnsteck, and one has tho I anomaly of 1200 prison cclls, with tho 1 prisoners wandering freely about tho neighborhood. The secret of tho "Great iMeadow Prison" is honor, an honor ; that exists not only among thieves, ! but among all misdemeanants. ! The warden is popular. He allows , the men to play games, and an allow ?unt'o of 'tobacco is made. I3ut it is no place ol idleness. Tho men work at .forestry and agriculture; poultry and pigs arc reared. A healthy life is provided, iroe from the temptations ol 'cities. Oi course, on© would expect them to murder the warder and war dens and e.scape. But they don't. Can it- be that our prison system is based upon false psychology as well as b. economy ? T.IVs "Weekly.'

Agri cultural College, says Maize and po tato crops well cultivated save mois ture. destroy* weeds, rid the land of wheat and flax insects and diseases, incorporate stable manure when ap plied and make the land produce good Has, wheat and barley crops when they follow.
