POTATO MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

POTATO MANURES. In most soils in this State, especially in those which have been frequently cropped with potatoes, a mixed manure must he used. The agricultural chemist tells us that a crop of 200 bushels, or 1,200lb., of pota- toes--a very moderate crop--removes from an acre of soil from 30lb. to 35lb. of nitro- gen, 20lb. to 25lb. of phosphoric acid, and 60lb. to 65lb. of potash. This last consti- tuent has been shown by the great French experimenter Ville to be the dominant one, and however much of the other elements of fertility may be supplied, a good crop of sound, starchy tubers cannot be produced without an abundant supply of potash. Hence a man farming on a basaltic or granitic soil, or on rich alluvial soils formed from these rocks, may grow good crops of potatoes for a few years without any manure, then for a few more years with bonedust alone; but eventually he finds that some-   thing more is needed, that something being potash. The man who is farming on li...

THE CAUSE OF FOOTROT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

THE CAUSE OF FOOTROT. A gentleman who has been engaged for many years in pastoral pursuits in South Australia lately gave his experience in con- nection with footrot in sheep. His country was originally well timbered, and the sheep --high-class merinoes--were rarely affected with footrot. When the pastoral leasehold was made a freehold many improvements were made, among which was ringbarking a large number of the trees. It was observed that after the trees were killed footrot steadily increased among the sheep, till at last it became a veritable plague. The pro- prietor noticed that the sheep were in the habit of camping regularly under certain trees, and he conceived the idea that the spread of footrot was in some way con- nected with this circumstances. He found that the best authorities in the old country were of opinion that footrot was contagious,   and he believed that the disease was spread by the sheep assembling on the deep beds of manure at the camping places....

POULTRY SCRATCHINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

POULTRY SCRATCHINGS Poultry can be bred for high records of   eggs, just as dairy cows are bred for high butter records. We have many good layers,   and some in these breeds are better than   others. If we select high record hens that   are good all-the-year-round layers, and breed along that line, we can add an extra dozen eggs to each hen for the year, then that will be profit. By carefully selecting the pullets for layers from the best laying hens, our egg-gathering is increased each year, which also means a larger profit each year. The cockerels used for breeding pur- poses should be selected from good laying hens as well as the pullets. For, it would be bad management to select the female line only, we must have the male line as carefully attended to if we wish to be suc- cessful in building up a record egg-produc- ing breed. TO MAKE HENS LAY IN WINTER.--The scarcity of eggs and the high prices that have ruled during December ...

AUTOMATIC FOUNTAIN FOR POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

AUTOMATIC FOUNTAIN TOR POULTRY. One of the best troughs tor supplying fowls with drinking water is made of an   empty 5gal. kerosene can as shown in the illustration from sketches by C. H. Riley, of Oregon. A hole 2 1/2 in. square is cut near the bottom, as in Fig. 1. Next cut an empty tin can in two, and about 3in. deep as in Fig. 2, and bend the edges in at right angles. With a soldering iron solder this section of can to the 5gal. tin opposite the hole at Fig. 1, so that when the section is fixed on the hole will be 1/2 in. lower than the top rim of Fig. 2. The two put together are seen at Fig. 3. The result is that chickens cannot tramp through and soil the water. Five gallons will hold enough for a large flock of fowls, and the drinking pan fills as quickly as they drink from it, and by throwing a sack over the fountain it will keep cool in hot weather, which would be a great advantage in warm climates. It is     easily moved from place to...

HINTS FOR THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

HINTS FOR THE DAIRY.     Before milking, the individual in charge should see that none of the cows are dirty. Cows that have been standing about in stagnant pools should be cleaned, and the teats, udder and flanks wiped with a damp cloth to facilitate milking and to prevent in- jurious dust brought from the "stagnant pools" getting into the milk. Milking should be done with clean slightly moist hands-- dipping the fingers in the milk-pail and then moistening the teats with the wet hand should never be allowed. If a cow has a sore teat that will be injured by the friction of milking, do not damp it with milk ; use in- stead a little vaseline, otherwise the hands should be made moist by washing in dean water and partially drying them. After the milk has been drawn from the cow it should be immediately passed through a fine strainer, because no matter how well cows are kept, loose hairs, flies, etc, get into the milk-pail, and these carry with them the sources...

THE PIG. PIG-KEEPING ESSENTIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

THE PIG PIG-KEEPING ESSENTIALS. The first essential in successful pig-keeping     is to make certain of having the right class and character of pigs to breed from. Several good breeds have been established in this   State, and it is largely a matter of indivi- dual fancy as to which is best; but the breed which has stood the test of time, and has invariably given satisfaction when pro-   perly managed, is the Berkshire. When a good strain of this valuable breed is secured --and most of the strains that have been imported into this State are good--the   animals are easily kept, they grow rapidly, mature early, and the flesh is highly prized, because there is a large proportion of lean meat to the fat. Another point in favor of the breed is that the Berkshire is essentially a grazing animal, and when allowed the run of pasture, providing that pasture contains a fair proportion of clover or lucerne, will keep in condition...

CANNNINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

About 12 miles from Perth, on the South-Western line of railway, is the town tearing the above name. Adja-   cent to it are several profitable fruit gardens, one owned by Mr. Weiden- bach being in the town. This covers an area of about 80 acres, the trees in which comprise best marketable varie- ties of oranges, apples, stone and pippin fruit, and grape vines, all of which are the picture of good health and the soil about them is in a cleanly condition. At one end of the town is the well-stocked Canning nursery of     Messrs. Wilson and Jones, an inspec- tion of which showed plants of most cultivated hard and soft wooded kinds to the number of (Iwas informed) 40,000. On account of their being raised Partly in the Open Air,   they are quite hardy. I was accom- panied over the town by Mr. Moriarty, who pointed out many objects, of interest. This gentleman, besides possessing a nice property, has asome     sp...

GOOSEBERRY HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

GOOSEBERRY HILL This is one of the best fruit-growing areas in the State. The Canning- Jarrah railway runs through the dis-   trict, and is largely patronised by the       gardeners and orchardists. Most kinds       of pippin and stone fruit flourish, and strawberries bear exceedingly well.   There is a good school with an average attendance of 35. The headmaster (Mr. Draper) has the confidence of the parents, and the work of the pupils justify it. The settlement is of a per- manent character, and many thousand pounds is represented in the cultivated areas. Those I conversed with are anxious that the Government should resume the land for closer settlement. Among the successful fruit growers are Messrs. A. Sanderson, F. Stirk, R.   Dixon, J. Wallace, J. Brady, D. Dixon, M'Crae, Weston Bros., Brooks,   Ashcroft, Owen, Collins, Sullivan, Zanetta, Ah Sing, Eb...

NORTHERN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

NORTHERN NOTES BY THE WIZARD     The bucolic and, indeed, the pastoral, mind of the North seems much exercised as to the exact qualities of the lupin plant. Some aver that it is a useful forage plant and that sheep are often glad to get it in   default of more congenial pasture. Also   that the beans so prodigally produced make an agreeable and nutritious diet for the human subject. Others persist in describing it as a pestilential ground robber, a menace to farmers, and quite useless if not harmful to the consumer, biped or quadruped. In   this region of West Australia there are many tracts where the lupin has got a strong foot- hold and flourishes exceedingly, to the ex- clusion of other vegetation. Lynton, a dead village on the coast, some 35 miles north of Northampton, it is said, is the nidus of this much-debated plant. Here, report has it, Captain Sandford, a former resident, intro-     ...

THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL. "TOM, DICK, AND HARRY." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

"Tom, Dick, and Harry." Surprise has been expressed that "A     Message from Mars" should have been with-   drawn when the play was apparently at the very zenith of its popularity, the reason however would be apparent to those who visited Tom, Dick, and Harry on Saturday night. The new piece is just what it pre- tends to be--a farcical comedy guaranteed to send the most sober-minded into fits of laughter, and from the commencement of the piece to the end the house was in a state of merriness. It is full of ludicrous situations; but everything ends satisfactorily. Mr. Hawtrey as the dyspeptic General Stanhope has the bulk of the work to do, and suc- ceeded in keeping the house in roars of   laughter during the whole evening. Tom Stanhope is a part admirably played by Mr. Gregan MacMahon, and the performance will add to the laurels already obtained by this clever comedian. Miss Winnifred Austin as Isabel Howard gives another exhibiti...

KALGOORLIE KETCHUP [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

By Kurrajong. Some rather ludicrous revelations were made at the Kalgoorlie Warden's Court this week on the manner in which blocks of land have been grabbed and held in the suburbs as garden areas and poultry farms. Four or   five years ago, before the golden city began to extend and expand in all directions, various far-seeing citizens managed to annex three and five acre slices of God's dusty earth, as adjacent to the town as they could possibly secure them, ostensibly for the purpose of raising Ribston pippins, spuds, spring chickens and Aylesbury ducks. Such aquirements, of course, are perfectly in accordance with the Act as long as the con- ditions are fulfilled under which the leases are issued. By and by, however, when the number and extent of these alleged market gardens and fowl ranches began to seriously interfere with residential settlement, it occurred to the Government land agent, or someone, to wander around and see what pro- gress the crops and the chicke...

DEBT COLLECTING SHARKS. PECULIAR COURT PROCEEDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

Another instance as to how the debt-collecting fraternity conduct their business has been brought under public notice. It appears that in June last a debt collector named Ettles, of Eagle Chambers, prepared and signed a plaint on behalf of a firm of Subiaco grocers (Tilley and Mugridge) for the pur- pose of issuing a summons against a man named Minter, for goods which he never     had. Judgment went by default, and a judgment summons was duly issued by   Ettles. An affadavit was made and filed by the defendant stating that he had not the means to attend on the summons, neither had he earned sufficient since the date of the judgment to           Satisfy the Plaintiff's claim, and further, that he was without means. However, in the absence of the defendant, Ettles managed to secure an order for payment of the amount by instalments of 20s. per month, but no direction wasmade that in ...

CREMORNE. TAYLOR CARRINGTON COMPANY. Throughout the week excellent houses have rewarded the enterprising managers of the about combination whcih has been showing at the popular Murray-street theatre. Of the histrionic ability of the company much has already been written, but upon Messrs. Taylor Keegan and Byons has fallen   the brunt of the heavy work. In the course of time Mr. Segum was a pronounced and instantaneous success, his cockney accent and mannerisms being most refreshing after the painful burlesques which were often foisted on a confiding public as the genuine article. Among the ladies, Miss Carrington, Miss Davies, and Miss Coppin shone conspicuously To-morrow evening the romantic drama "Mitzpah" will be presented.
