AGRICULTURAL CROP NUTRITION. Continued from 8/3/24 [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 March 1924

AGRICULTURAL CROP NUTRITION. Continued rom 8/3/24 fBy "Hecather Jock." The P'hosphatic manures are pro bably the group which is of most in tcrest to the Australian ;armer, as no manures have given such good returns in Australia generally as those supply ing phosphoric acid. The utilisation of phosphatic manures in Australia, although an immense business in Aus tralia now, is likely to expand enor mously during the next few years, as many farmers each year who have not used them previously are start ing to use them because of the re sults shown by others; and many who have been using them are doubling up the quantities they previously used. The enormous returns shown on grass lands by the experimental trials in various districts will also bring about in the near future a tremendous de mand from graziers and dairy farmers who previously used none at all. Phosphoric acid has been applied in Australia in the past mostly in the form of phosphatic rock, which has been treated with sulphur...

SCIENCE AND WHEAT PRODUCTION [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 March 1924

SCIENCE AND WHEAT PRODUCTION -0-" By J. Leith Gillespie, B.Ag.Sc. Fifteen years ago anyone walking along a certain road in the Wimmera would have been surprised to see a small neatly-dressed man sprawling in the dust with a large muscular and very irate farmer standing over him threatening "to flay him alive" if he ever put in an appearance in that dis trict again. If inquiries had been pressed and the little man questioned it would have i;een discovered that the reason for the farmer's warlike atti tude was that this "little rat has come cut, and tried to tell me that by sprinkling a little bit of powdet, which he called manure, on my land I would cet more wheat." Such was the attitude of the ave rage farmer towards the use of scien tific methods in wheat production some years ago. The change in view has i;cen brought about by a systematic education by experimental demonstra tion and propaganda. The Govern ment, through the Agricultural De partment and the agricultural colleges, ha...

Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY, MARCH 22, 1924 [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 March 1924

Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY, MARCH 22, 1924 A matter that might well engage the attention of the Shire Council and Progress Asseciation is,:the present state of the post office in Sunshine and the boundaries allotted for the delivery of letters. It is quite appa rent to even the casual observer that the office is understaffed. It frequently happens when a call is made at the office the man on duty is attending to the telegraph line. 1By the tiiihe he is through about a dozen people are awaiting attention, and people with telegrams to despatch or other busi ness to transact have to take their turn with others inquiring for letters. The fault is-not with the post niaster or his assistants, but with the depart inent, w'ho, have failced.to: grasp the importatice of a rapidlTy rising district. The boundary question is becoming farcical, people residing less than a quarter of a mile from the post office having to call for their letters. Com plaints are reaching this office re garding these...

FISHER'S RUINS [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 29 March 1924

FISHER'S RUINS BY C. H. BUCKINGHI~AM Fishers' Ruins, or as it was more popularly known, "The Haunted Castle," was built about the year 1840 on the brow of the hill overlooking the present sites of Moonee Ponds, Ascot Vale, Newmarket and Footscray as a refuge and lookout for shepherds and stockmen employed by Mr C. B. Fisher, a breeder of race horses. When the blacks were driven from the vicinity of the township of Melbourne they found refuge in a patch of scrub by a creek that used to flow through that portion of land where the Footscray Park is now situated. As food was scarce they were in the habit of making nightly excursions to Fishers' paddocks and killing sheep, cattle, and even racehorses for food. Many a stern battle was fought out by the castle. There was another and greater menace to cope with than the native tribes. At this time bushrang ing was in full swing, and many bushrangers secured their choice from amongst the many beautiful blood horses running half wild on the c...
