BOWLING v. THROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

BOWLING v. THROWING. To the Editor of the Town and Country Journal, ? Sir, -I wish to ask you, through the medium of ' the Town and Country Journal, whether it is not high time that throwing instead of bowling was put aston toi I was present at a match last Saturday, Albert v University, when the umpire for the'University allowed tho most deliberate throwing I ever saw. I believe it is in contemplation for the University of Sydney to play the University of Melbourne ; but do the Sydney men imagine that the throwing of Fit2hardinge\villho allowed ? They may depend upon it that it will not and if it comes to a throwing match Melbourne has always shown that she is superior at that game. I l don't think that the Melbourne cricketers are at all ! anxious that throwing should be discountenanced, j because they have Wills, aman as good as any two or I three of our throwers put together ; and so I long as umpires wink at such a practice it will be j impossible for New South WaleB to win an ...

Ploughing Under Green Crops or Weeds. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

Ploughing Under Green Crops or "Weeds. ' TUB ploughing under of green crops or even of weeds L manure, is a thing almost unknown in Australia, although it is a method largely adopted in countries that have made much progress in agriculture. The Brinoiplobf manuring by this method is founded on the fact that the roots of some kinds of green crops mi of many descriptions of weeds derive their nourishment from a considerable depth, and thus bring to the surface many mineral constituents of tho Boil of a very valuable kind, which would not be within reach of cereals and other surface, crops. The ploughing under and consequent rotting of these {reeds or deeply penetrating crops places their con stituents within tho grasp, so to speak, of cereals, and hence tho benefit they aro capable of yielding ffhen properly treated. Many a farmer in New South Wales has paid a high prico for tho labour employed in clearing from tho surface, in order to moke ready for ploughing, crops of wild clover, t...

Facts for Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

Facts for Farmers. If sap is at all sour the sugar will not crystallize well. Watery potatoes can be greatly improved by boiling right. Tho following rule is tho best. Let tho water be boiling when the potatoes are put in : when they are done pour off the water, add a little salt, and return tho vessel to the firo for a few minutes. One reason why farmers' sons often hato farming is because they aro required to do so much toiling, brainless work. Many a boy has become an unsuccess ful clerk because his chief farm recollections were of digging potatoes, hoeing corn, and shovelling manure. The more machinory is used in farming, the more intellectual becomes tho pursuit, and therefore the more attractive to clever boys. It is contended that in Virginia tobacco culture is no longer profitable, and that it must be abandoned. Still it is proposed to grow a,little of the superior kind. Tho moro the nature of horses is studied tho moro aro thoy found Uko mon. The best horses aro nervous and...

Fancy Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

Fancy Farmers. MODERN agricultura owes much if not most of its comparative perfection to the experiments of a olass of men who aro peculiar to the present contury, and ? who aro sometimes sneeringly termed " fancy farmors." i They are generally mon who, having beon engaged in ; business pursuits in towns and cities during the i greater part of their lives, and having accumulated . fortunes in their vocations, turn, at tho autumn, or it may bo summer, of Ufe, to rural occupations as a recre ation. Wc boliovo tho lovo of country life manifested by those individuals is instinctive in almost all men of steady habits, who havo from youth upwards boon confined for many years to tho counting-house or writing-desk, and whoso glimpses of rural scenery are obtained from, and confined to, occasional visits to country Monds.

Country Market. MAITLAND. Operations In produce are very few, and the ruling prices aro not very easy to state, as they are more affected by actual retail demands than by any large wholesale transactions. Small parcels of lucerno hay have been purchased at L4 per ton, but 80s is probably more nearly the market value ; maize ls worth about 3s 3d, but there is none offering, and it is impossible to say, till the return of sunny weather, whether any of the flooded maize may be marketable, although it is hoped that some will bc flt for use and salo. Adelaide flour is very scarce, and is worth about L14 10s, flour from colonial mills brings L ¡ 3 per ton ; at the mills, first flour is sold for 14s por 1001b., and seconds for 13s. There are a few trans actions to record in wheat, at 3s 3d, 3s Od, and 3s Od per bushel. GOULBURN.

New Method of Milking Kicking Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

New Method of Milking Kicking Cows, FASTEN to your wrist a small filler, having attached to it an india-rubbor tube-say ten feet long,-4-the other end is fastened to the milk bucket, which you leave standing ten feet away. The advantages are', tho milk is always freo from filth or dust. You, of course, when milking, squirt tho milk into tho filler, and it flows along the tubo into tho bucket. Your cow may be restive or kiok, but she cannot upset the bucket or spill the milk. |Itis a most simple b\it effective method. Of course you may havo tho tube any length you like, but it must bo so long that tho bucket oan stand .well away from tho cow. Tho bucket may be covered, having merely an opening sufficiently large to admit tho tube.
