A PIG-FEEDING RACK TO PREVENT WASTE USEFUL FOR LUCERNE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

A MG-FKEDING RACK TO PREVENT WiA'STE USEFUL FOR LUCHRNE m America it is found „ that lucerne is beneficial for pigs. Many of the most successful men in the pig" business are finding that by feeding more forage crops they are making pork with greater economy and keeping their f.took healthier than iwhen .on too con centrated a ration. A pig is not ordin arily considered as a hay-eating ani mal. Yet he will eat lucerne hay and make good (gains u,pon it. For brood sows or breeding animals which are being carried through the winter and are not expected to become fat, lucerne is valuable. It is claimed by some that trouble with ficsiws eating their pigs is entirely eliminated, as the mineral con stituents in lucerne supply the defi ciency and remove the abnormal appe RACK IN PADDOCK tite. In some trials, brood sows have been fed through, the entire period of gestation on lucerne hay alone, receiv ing no grain until the last two .or three weeks.

Persian Infiuence [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

Persian Influence Following the Persian tunic, in quick succession ctones t!>e revival of the bolero. It. is a useful acquisition to the modest wardrobe, for with its assist ance a woman can have an attractive variety of blouses for informal home entertainments. The bolero in Its new guise does not spring1 up at the back, leaving the hvearer with a round-shouldered ap pearance. It Is long1 enough at the back to be pushed over the belt. The loose front looks well opening over a fancy Vest of some kind. A good idea is to have blouses of Crepe de chine in favorite colors to Wear under an adjustable kimona bolero of ninon or mousseline de soie in gome vivid shade, edged with fur. Let the blouse be open in front and finished with a modified Medici col lar. Remnants suitable for the making of these blouses can be secured at greatly reduced prices at this time of the year.

DEVELOPING TRAMWAYS LOCALLY-MADE CARS WANTED ARGUMENT IN HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

DEVELOPING TRAMWAYS | LOCALLY-MADE CARS WANTED ARGUMENT T"NT wottst?!' Limited to £500,000 in its borrowings, tile Frahran-Malvern Tramways Trust wants power to raise another £100,000, ana a Bill was presented to Parliament on January 30 to convey the necessary power. Mr Watt stated that the Trust would soon be needing more money for its ex tensions. Mr G. Prendergast said that the elec tric tramways were ably managed, but there should be a Bill giving the people power over all the tramway trusts. The several bodies managing trams were aggrandising themselves on the strength of their ever increasing bor rowing powers. As a result, the pub lic was not getting a completely organ ised set of routes, and the value of the cable tracks was being reduced, so that the cable trams would be of little use wlien taken over. Mr G-. Elmslie said they must have one tramway management at the ear liest possible moment. It seemed an extraordinary thing, too, that these trams, bought with local money,...

TO SAVE LIFE BUS DRIVER'S PROMPTITUDE. CONDUCTOR HURT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

TO SAVE LIFE f BUS DRIVER'S PROMPTITUDE. CONDUCTOR TTTTRT. "I did it to save the life of the man with the barrow," was the reason which John Hellier, the driver, gave for swerving his motor 'bus into the galvanised iron fence of Dr. Lloyd's residence on the St. Kilda road, on January 30. It was shortly after 9.30 o'clock, when the accident occurred, and the 'bus, which was the property of the Melbourne Motor Omnibus Company, and bound for St. Kilda beach, had on board about six passengers. There was nothing to suggest that there was anything wrong with the mechanism on the early portion of the journey, but just when nearing Dr. Lloyd's residence the steering gear locked. A moment afterwards the big vehicle had struck the right-hand kerbing. It was here that the driver told an interesting story of how he took what he thought the best "of two rather unenviable courses. "When the car struck the kerb," he said, "I knew that quite possibly she might unlock. "On my right was a tree, and a...

THE FLOWER GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

THE FIjOWER GARDEN Flower gardens that have been culti vated and watered regularly are par ticularly attractive this summer. Ten der animals have made good growth. The blooms are large and brightly colored. As soon as the flowering period ceases the beds in which annuals are growing should be cleared of the plants and trenched deeply in a rough | state. Exposure to the weather for a few weeks will sweeten the soil a,nd put it in good heart for daffodils and a variety of spring flowering bulbs. These should be planted in March. When land is being trenched a thick layer of decayed stable or farmyard manure should be placed in the bottom of each trench not less than 12 or 15 inches deep. Further sowings of ten der annuals may be made in rich, light beds during the next three weeks. Asters, balsams, cosmos, zinnias, and phloxes will give the best results, I Hoses, dahlias, and chrysanthemums j must be watered regularly. They should receive a little weak liquid ma nure once a week. Soil ...

CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS Plants in pots must be carefully watered during the warm months. Those that go out of flower should have the supply of moisture reduced gradually until the resting period is reached, when they may be dried off and placed in a dark, dry corner during winter. Plants should not De given cold water drawn from a well. It should be allowed to stand exposed for several hours- Much injury is caused! by using water that is too cold. When water is given to. plants it should be of the same temperature as that of the house in which the plants are growing. Cold water should never be used in a greenhouse; it is always best for the water to be warmed 3 deg. or 4 dej* above the temperature of the house The 3oil in pots should be kept as nearly as possible at a uniform stand ard of moisture, that degTee being a medium between -wetness and drought To secure this it is wise to examine the plants daily.

WIRELESS CONTRIVANCE AUDIBLE CALL DEVISED INTERRUPTIONS AVOIDED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

.•WIBEILSSsS CONTRIVANCE AUDIBLE CALL DEVISED INTERRUPTIONS AVOIDED Though wireless communication has reached a stage of practical excellence, in some respects it is still susceptible of advantageous change. Mr Alban J. Roberts, a New Zealand inventor, has elaborated an improvement on the pre sent system. Under existing conditions the vibra tions which convey the message are easi ly interfered with by what are called at mospherics. In other words, the meteo rological condition of the atmosphere at times gets up a disturbance which may make the wireless message really migratory. Mr Roberts has directed specific attention to this phase of com munication, and by his invention has apparently overcome this source of dis turbance. Y/ithout embarking upon technical details, which, to the lay mind, would only be confusing, it may be shortly said that Mr Roberts's con trivance can pick up a message in such a way that it can maintain itself, and remain independent of those atmos pherical cond...

DAIRY JOTTINGS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

DAIRY JOTTINGS Exhastive tests in regard to the feed ing" of pigs have been made recently at the Warrnambool High School farm. It was ascertained that the younger the pig the cheaper the gain per lb. can be made, that pollard and milk, with a little bran, is one of the cheapest rations, if not the, cheap est to feed to pigs of all ages, that rape pasture is likely to materially reduce the cost of produc tion, that with well-bred pigs, pro perly fed and cared for, first-grade pork and bacon can be produced under local conditions for about l%d per lb. live weight, or under 2*4d per lb. dress ed weight, that an averag-e weekly gain of about Slbs. should be expected. The pig should be put on the market at from 180 to 2001bs. live weight inside six months. From experiments carried out in Ger many it is claimed to have been dis covered that sour milk given to calves from the first to the fifth day of their lives, forms an excellent preventive of scour.
