The Ooraki in the Gale. The steamer Coraki had a very narrow escape from coming to grief when entering the Manning River on Friday morning.

The horBes broke lose on deck, and woro washed from one side to the other with the deck curgo, but miraculously escaped injury. The water found its wsy below into tho saloon through venti lators, which were washed away. About 80 tons of wator were on tho steamer's deck at one time, and the steamer appeared almost helpless, and at one period was within 20ft of tho sub merged wreck of tho Murray.

Weighting Silos. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 13 May 1898

Weighting Silos. Hitherto 1 luivo been a very strong advocate for heavy pressure for silos and silo stacks ; but after seeing the splendid silage made by Professor Shelton, at the Queensland Agricultural College Farm, I admit that my ideas on that point have undergone a complete change, and I have no hesitation in asserting that I believo good ensilage can bo mado in a properly constructed silo if well trodden down and well packed during filling. I Btill consider pressure necessary for stack silage. Professor Shelton'a opinion on pres suro :— ' Tho silo once filled, its contents need not be weighted down, as has boon the practice. Tread the ensilage down thoroughly about tho sides of the oilo, and xmrticularhj in tho corners, and afterwards cover (5 inches deep with fine greon grass.' Mr. James M. Turner, an Amorican authority, saya with regard to pressuro : — ' After tho silo is filled it will bo found unnecessary to add any weights to the top surface. Originally wo used to break o...

Silos versus Stacks. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 13 May 1898

Silos versus Stacks. Stack silage has many apparent attrac tions for a beginner in ensilage-making, because of its supposed cheapness, but I am strongly of opinion that the pit system is really tho| most economical in the end. A stack is exposed to wind, rain, and sun, and serious Iobsps cannot be prevented, as a considerable quantity of the outer edge is totally unfitforcattla Food. This seems, to me to be more apparent in the Northern River districts. I fully endorse the following remarks on the Bubjeet, penned by Prof. Shelton, of Queensland : — j 'The stack silo hiismany attractions to the beginner in ensilage innkins, because af its supposed cheapness. It is commonly 3aid that unyone can put up a stack of greenstuff, and it seems an equally 3imple matter to sufficiently weight this down by timber or rocks or even earth — materials which are accessible upon every farm. However, my own opinion is that the stack silo is not to be generally com mended. The waste, to begin with, is,...
