IMPROVING EGG PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

IMPROVING EGG PRODUCTION. To improve egg production and ex hibition quality in future generations requires a knowledge of the producing qualities of the individual hens, or the family line from which they.are taken. One who first suggested breeding for egg production made the statement, "Heredity is the first factor." In ex planation of this, hlie said that a pullet from parents, both of which had come from breeding for egg production for several, generations had far more c!i."ace eo prolificacy than had pullets of ui certain ancestors. He said fur ther that not all the female progeny of prolific parentage inherit potential pro lifiaocy, meaning that tho? do not in herit the latent power to produce ma,v y eggs.. Evidently, however, a hen in order to excel in egg produc tion must be able to eat and assimilate a large quantity of food; she must have such- crop capacity as.can carry to keep her dige ive organs .busy to the roost a suppry of food suffioient throughout the night. Each ti...

HOW INSECTS ACQUIRE CASTE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

HOW INSECTS 'ACQUIRE CASTE. The various castes of social insects have different appearances, but it has been supposed that they are alike on leaving the egg and develop their pecu liar characteristics artificially through differences in feeding or the action of parasites. Seeking to learn when. the different forms' of termites, or white ants, begin, Professor, Bugnion, of Paris, concludes that this theory is wrong. Among the several castes of this insect, the soldiers are wingless and have very strong inandibles, and the workers, which bsild and bring food, have a distinct form, but neither reproduce. The caste known as reproducers, on the other hand, with a special development, appear to perform no part except per petuating the species. The investiga tion made with a number of specics shows that the neculiarity of form ex ists in newly-hatched insects, and,that, therefore, division into castes, like that of the sexes, takes place before the lavae are born. The increased cost of liv...

THE FLAVOR OF BUTTER INJURED BY METALS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

THE FLAVOR OF BUTTER IN JURED BY-METALS. The United states Dairy Division has been investigating the effect of the presence of- a small amount of iron or copper may have on the flavor of but ter. They report, that very small amounts of these metals in the cream cause certain undesirable flavors to increase in intensity during storage. "These flavors are often designated as "met allio," "oily," or' "fishy." Experi ments were carried out, using known quantities of varying from 1 to 500 parts to a million parts of cream. The butter was stored and examined at in tervals varying from 20 to 187 days. The most noticeable feature was the rapid development of liad flavors in butter containing the iron. Butter made from cream which had stood in rusty cans developed- a peouliar taste easily picked out. The influence of copper was even more marked- than that of iron. The work shows that if cream is kept in rusty cans, or comes in eon tact with iron or copper during' the process of butter making...

PREPARATION OF THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

PREPARATION OF THE SOIL. A thorough preparation of the soil is one of the chief factors in suocessfuJ management of the soil. Soils that are badly run down by continuous crop ping may be restored to their original, state of productiveness by the use of fertilisers, but the cause of small re turns is not always due to a lack of fertility. Many conditions may pre vail which prevent the plant attaining a healthy development. Better con ditionis, obtaiiidd. bydrainage, liming, etc., may be 'necessary before the plan can avail itself of further addi tions of plant food. The -more per fect the condition of the soil is made the better will plants be able to attain the highest development; there will, then, be greater conversion of food into crops. Our soils are the medium in which we can at pleasure convert pot ash phosphoric acid-nitrogen into crops; therefore, is it not advisable to keep the medium in the highest ~fate 6f ef filcency? Feed your crops as you do your animals, not merely to...

PEARS BECOMING SCARCE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

PEARS BECOMING SCARCE. During the last few years the de mand for perfect pearls has been so great that now the supply on hand is practically exhausted, and the leading jewellers of Europe fear that for some time there will be a dearth of these costly gems. -, - "It is true," says Mf. C. Chincolle, an expert, writinig on the subject, a"that in the thousands f pearl oysters which are being constantly brought up from the deep, many beautiful pearls are found; but even if twice as many were found the supply would still be insufficient. The price of pearls has increased greatly of late, yet the more they cost the more eagerly are they sought. "Naturally, the demand is greatest for those whiob are faultless. A jew eller who has a find row of symmetrical pearls can be sure of selling it at a high price, A few days ago I saw a necklace containing 45 pearls; of wvhich 12 were black. It is worth £10,000, and will certainly be sold within a week. - "Wealthy Americans are especially fond of-pea...

Seymour Water supply TO T?e EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. Sir.-In your issue of the 16th inst., an. "Indignant Ratepayer" gives foceable expression to the feelings of the lolg suffering p, ople of our town with regard to w:iter supplyandthe inept Water Trust. To judge by the report of their last meeting a stranger would think that this want of water during the hot test months of the year was -a quite unexpected trouble created by a little extra consumption by the rail ways. But what are the real facts ? From. the first laying on of the water the residents on the higher levels have never had a regular supply, and for the last fifteen years at least.the same complaints have been inade to the Trust of the water being cut off during the hot test time of the year-and the same venerable ectiuse has been trotted out by the Trust, viz.: the extra con sumption on the railways. So our sapient Trust stands quietly by making no attempt to provide a remedy for this state of affairs. To an ordinary inte...

MARKETING HONEY. -Beekeepers as. a -olass are an intel 'agoent and well-read unit of the. com oiunity. They mknow most things, about' the production of honey, and readily adopt improved methods of working. When it comes to the mar keting of their product, however, they do not give evidence of the same bright ip-to-duteness. Very few of them weigh their honey before sending it to the agents for sale, or putanny reserve price on it.

Improvement of Poor Hill Pasture. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

Improvement of Poor Hill? ,Pasture. - There are few aricultural problems oft more importanoe at the present time llan the improvqment of the poor hill pasture, which forms such a largoe proportion of the total aroea ot the country (says the Mark Lane Ex press). How can this be done? l'he question is complicated by the facts that'(l) the cost of improvement is often relatively great, owing to the inaccesability of the grazing; (2) in many cases, climatic conditions res triot not only the growth of herbage, .but also the grazing season; (3) there aro many distinct types of herbago Idependent, doubtless, on soil, climate, and general conditions. It follows, from these considerations that the question is a dilficult one from an economic standpoint; at the same time-according to the view expres .sed in a recent Board of Agriicultural leaflet No 275--there are large areas of fairly accessible poor hill pastures which are not as productive.as they might be, oc as they used to be with in qu...
