VEGETABLES. AS FIELD CROPS OR FOR KITCHEN GARDEN SOMETHING ABOUT CARROTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

VEGETABLES, i AS FIELD CROPS OR & FOR KITCHEN GARDEN SOMETHING ABOUT CARROTS. During the recent Royal Agricultu ral Show a friend with whom we in spected the exhibits expres'sed surprise that a dozen roots of the homely car rot should be esteemed worthy a place in the prize schedule. We were at some pains to convince him that the root in question was well fitted to figure in such a position, being not only human ly edible, but particularly valuable to all farm stock, and possessing in addi tion a very high and distinct medicinal value, particularly whe/re horses are concerned. * * A Of course, there are carrots and car rots. Those figuring on the table, usu ally in conjunction with corned beef, or in soups, may be St. Valery, Scarlet Intermediate, Scarlet Long Horn, or Early Short Horn. Field carrots, however, although sometimes used for culinary purposes, are, in comparison with those mentioned, somewhat coarse, tlthough their large size ren ders them more suitable for stoc...

POTATO BLIGHT DEFIED. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

POTATO BLIGHT DEFIED. A correspondent sends us the follow ing : — Mr. J. 0. Eastwood, of ' Tar anaki (N.Z.), is growing potatoes en tirely free from blight. He uses a preventive that was used by his father in the West Indies as; a precaution against blight in the arrowroot and ginger crops, which take disease very readily. He has been using this specific with his potato crops at Tungaporutu for five years, and has n/it Artr-n Unr] tl\nm aftnffnA 'M'iHl' blight. The specific is made; up of 61bs. sulphate of ammonia and 61bs. of nitrate of potash, dissolved in 25 gallons of water, approximately 4 oz. of each to a gallon of water, and the same strength is used to all seeds. He soaks the seeds' for 24 hours, and in the case of potatoes allows them to dry for another 24 hours before plant ing, so as avoid mildew. [It would be interesting to knou' if this specific would be effective as a preventive of rust or smut in wheat. Some of our readers might put it to the test and report results. ...

PRESERVING THE TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

PRESERVING THE TREES. Mr. J. II, Maiden writes : — Native- born Australians often speak of our gum trees slightingly, but they are full of variety, Wl the idea that they arc alike or. monotonous is based on a misapprehension, and will disappear if a little thoughtful attention be be stowed on them. The genus euca lyptus is one of the most remarkable genera in the whole of the vegetable kingdom. I have the greatest affec tion for the 'gum tree/ have devoted every moment I could for over 20 years to study of it, and when I die, if I am buried, I would like to lie under a gum tree. In all parts of our State the true foundation of successful arbo riculture lies in the conservation of our indigenous trees. Experiment with others by all means, but insist on the sure policy of taking care of our na tive trees, inured to our various clim ates and differing soils. A dead pftck-horse and a dead riding horse, with' a saddle attached, have been found 70 miles from Normanton (Q.).

SHOPPING SUGGESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

SHOPPING SUGGESTIONS. Messrs. David Jones and Co.'s Man chester department is most wonderfully stocked with the best value in calicoes and napery of all classes, and the prices are absolutely unrivalled. This tulip pattern damask I am showing you to-day is really beautiful both in texture and design, 72 inches wide, and but 3/4i a yard. As a rule, its price is 4/-. There arc serviettes to match, 24 indies square, at 10/0 a dozen, in unbleached damask there is a good choice, both in prices and patterns — 5S inches, 1/3 ; 64 inches, 2/3 ; 66 inches, i/ui; and in 72 inches many prices, beginning as low at i/6i, i/7i, 2/4I, 2/6, and 2/11, all post free. These unbleached damasks come white in a very few washings. In trying to make my shopping list of interest to you, naturally I look for special prices, but please remember the qualities also are special. As the shopping business is my living, it would be very bad busi ness on my part to offer you worthless goods, and I assure you an orde...

PROPORTIONS OF A GOOD FIGURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

PROPORTIONS OF A GOOD FIGURE. , Heresies without number regarding '' the proportions for ideal beauty of fig ure are cherished by the public. After ? all, it may be a matter of taste, for some like slimncss, and many its direct opposite. This is: what a well-known authority has to say on the proportions for life-size statuary : — Taking the height as five feet six inches, the waist should measure twenty-five inches, the hips forty-two inches, and the bust thirty-six inches. Nine inches is a correct foot length. There should be only one inch difference between the length of leg and arm. Twenty-eight | for the former and twenty-seven for the t latter are correct. The arm is measur- ', ed from the slioulder. to the finger tips. ? ? - * * * HE WASN'T HAVING ANY. A well-known officer had a beautiful j daughter. ... \ .

— - THE DAIRYMAN. =££~=====^^ By FRANK McCAFFREY. SOIL DETERIORATION. Mr. John Stewart, of Berry, an auc tioneer of some thirty years' standing, and who is, besides, a most observant man in all matters appertaining to stock and the soils and grasses on which stock are raised, and whose opinions on all such matters are worth listening to, says : — The deterioration of soil naturally leads one to inquire as to its bearing on the value of land. ? It will be grant ed that if the soil decreases in produc tion its value will decrease in the same nronnrtion. and that such is reallv the case cannot be questioned when we compare present values with those ob tained in former years. The market value of South Coast products within recent years can compare favorably with any former period, and one would be led to believe that the land would maintain its price, yet there is a re duction. The value of products is satisfactory, but monthly cheques are small, comparatively. Fewer cattle by at least ...

THE FRIZZLED FOWL AS A SITTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906

THE FRIZZLED FOWL AS A SITTER. This breed is probably the most gro tesque in existence, As most people are aware, the feathers are curled back, imparting tint peculiar appear ance which their title so aptly recri bes. Although sometimes known as 'French1' fowls, theiv probably ori ginated in the .Mauritius, where they have long1 been known, and from whence, the island being; once a French possession, they probably found their o ay io r-urupe. /\iinouK' suiing wen, and making' the best of mothers, it will be found that egg's placed under hens of this breed arc slow to hatch — from one to three days beyond the usu al time. This peculiarity is probably due to the lack of heat in the mother . consequent upon the odd arrangement of her feathers. '

HATCHING THE CHICKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906

?^??^.?^.?».-o.--.-^.^. HATCHING THE CHICKS. Notwithstanding the growing popu larity of the incubator, there are many hatching annually some hundreds of chicks who still prefer natural incu bation — a good old hen. We have yet to see the incubator which does not turn out a percentage of deformed or crippled chicks. The best incubator, likewise, is useless to the poultry raiser without that accessory, the foster mother. Hatching the birds is only the half of the business, and, speaking from experience, by a long way the easiest half of it. o- ^ ^ T T T* True, there are drawbacks attendant upon the employment of the natural method. Some hens won't sit, others sit a while and then desert the nest. Others, again, are egg smashers, while others arc notorious egg eaters. Some hens will sit like wax till the chickens appear, and then callously tread them to death, never heeding the cries cf their offspring till the life has been crushed out of them. Hut with all these drawback:} much may s...
