SOIL MOISTURE. ITS IMPORTANCE AND MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 24 June 1910

, ; SOIL MOISTURE, j ITS IMPORTANCE AND MANAGE MENT. The State Agricultural College ex periment Station has issued a bulletin i under this title, prepared by Joseph A., Jeffery, Professor o£ Agronomy and Soil ' Physics, from which we give some liberal and interesting extracts. It Is a sub ject that lies at the foundation of the cultivation of the soil and its ability tc produce crops. „ COMPOSITION OF SOILS. Soils are composed principally o£ two materials, mineral matter and organic matter. The mineral matter consists of frag ments of rocks, sand and clay. All •these have come from the breaking down of larger masses o£ roclc. The organic matter consists of decom ■ posing leaves, stems and roots of plants, : and of the remains of the bodies of anl "" mals. When these materials are so far decomposed as to loss their form, the re sulting organic mass is called humus. In addition to these materials there are found in soils varying quantities of ■ ■ calts, of potash, lime, etc., which, d...

TALKING AS AN ART. AWKWARDNESS OF CONVERSATIONAL OPENINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 24 June 1910

TALKING AS AN ART. AWKWARDNESS OF CONVERSA TIONAL OPENINGS. We loarn to talk at two years of ago or thereabouts. But some oC us never , learn to converse at all. We drop a remark; it falls like a hoof on a grass hopper. and sets the table looking into its plate. To say that the art of con versation is dead Is absurd, when one has enjoyed so many foursomes of frolic. But the start—the first return—these are the important things. And primarily the return. Within the last few days I have casually encountered (says Clar ence Hook, in the "Daily Chronicle"), the record of two men, one of whom suc ceeded, as the other failed, in the art of conversation. They have lately been celebrating Dr. Johnson at Lichfield—the town in which he learned to talk. Still they speak of him as the great .lexico grapher; though his real claim to re membrancejs his talk, not his writing;, his use of words and not his definition of them. Johnson's dictionary is as dead as Ramoses, but his "Sir"—and the sequel—...

A MAD YOUTH'S FREAK. : HE FIRES PLAT BUILDINGS. • Late, on the night of 9th November, the New York police arrested a youth named Frank Morris, who is accused of at tempting to burn a large block of fas hionable apartment houses in West Sixty Fifth street, while under the inlluence of cigarettes made from stramonium leaves. Five different fires were discovered in the apartment houses, wherein four lives were lost, and many persons wore pros trated through fright, while hundreds of others were rescued from dangerous posi tions with great difficulty. A big con flagration was averted only by the heroic activity of the fire department. Repeated alarms coming close together attracted "a great crowd to West Sixty Fifth street. ■ A newsboy was watching the rescues when- a breathless youth ap proaching hurriedly cried, "Any dead yet?: Don't go away. There will be lots of fires to-night." The newsboy, noticing that the stran ger's clothes and face were grimy with smoke and soot, informed the ...

Gas at its front door, gas at' its surgery door, gas inside-its windows.; no habitation in the place .was ever so exten sively lighted, as . Dr. West's. The house was inclosed -wi fch iron .railings, and on its side—dfc^ tachoil—was the surgery. A very low place, this surgery ; you had to go down a step or two, and then plunge, into a low door. In the time of the last tenant it had. been ; used asa gardon tool-house. It was a tolerably large room, and had a tolerably small window, which was in front, the door being on the side, opposite the side entraiico of the house.

Shelves were ranged completely round the room aloft, and a pair of steps, used for golting down the jars and bottlos, rested in a corner.

The-Premier's speech made It perfectly clear that Franco is determined to main tain and strengthen her war machine to the utmost. At the outset he de clared that he and his Government were earnestly desirous of maintaining peace. The Republic, he said, had never wav ered in its peaceful intentions, and the Government would faithfully carry out those intentions. But, In order to secure this, continued M. Clemenceau, It is of the first import ance that France should maintain her military strength. The Idea of disarm ament was absurd, for that would be to destroy th^ only .'guarantee of France's independence.

A TURKISH BATH. WHAT IT MEANS. THE SENSATION DECRIBED. What is tlhere about a Turkish bath that distinguishes it from the common or domestic bath of familiar use. A simple definition of a Turkish bath Is "a bath In perspiration." It is a hot air bath, in which the temperature varies between 11G and 190 degrees. After undergoing copious sudation in the fiery atmosphere of a heated cham ber the fc-ubject passes through the varying processes of washing, soaping, and shampooing, and finally reaches an apartment where the temperature. Is normal. What Is claimed for the Tur kish 'bath, is, that "it clears the pores of the skin, rendering the latter healthy; Induces free respiration; increase? the force nnd rapidity of the circulation; and Imparts a sense of elasticity and vigor to the system." This luxury was introduced In Eng land from the East, the first Turkish baths In London being- opened in 1SG0. There Is a curious fact about the his tory of the Turkish baths In Melbourne.
