SOIL BACTERIA AND THEIR ACTION ON PHOSPHATE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

SOIL BACTERIA AND THEIR ACTION ON PHOSPHATE. It has been known for some time that insoluble phosphate in the soil is rendered soluble by the acids formed through the agency of certain kinds of bacteria. Mr. Koch made a series of investigations to throw more definite light "on the subject. He experiment ed with a variety of phosphates of diiferent degrees of solubility, and claims to have demonstrated— (1) That bacteria, in consequence of acid formations, convert insoluble phosphate into a condition soluble in water. (2) In presence of substances in the soil, such as carbonate of lime, carbonate of magnesia, ammonia, act ing as bases, the bacteria begin by acting on them, and only afterwards exert their dissolving influence on the phosphoric acid. (3) Bacteria act on all phosphates, but their degree of- activity is vari able according to the character of the phosphate. . (4) The phosphoric acid in basic slag is rendered available very eas ily. (5) The goou results obtained by the app...

MEDITATIONS OF A COW. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

MEDITATIONS OF A COW. Here I am, just a scrub cow, but what do I care. I .have a good home. To be sure, the wind blows' in through the cracks in winter, and, as I don't get enough feed to both keep me warm and make milk too, I just natur ally don't make the milk. What do I care? A cow has to look out for her self. I just lay off and take a vacation for three or four months during the winter. Old, dry cornstalks don't taste very good anyway, and, besides, a cow isn't supposed to kill herself giving milk. Evidently the boss keeps me just to look at. He says he always did like to see a good, slick-looking cow, and does not like to milk in the winter anyway, and, besides, he thinks there is no money in dairying if a man counts his time worth any thing. Of course, after my calf is born, I give a big mess of milk for a little while, but what is the use of keeping it up when I can live without work by just looking nice all the time. The other day I came down to the barn about three o'clock...

Silence Reigned Supreme. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

Silence Reigned Supreme. It was at the theatre, and the young man had seen the play before. He let everybody for five seats around know that. He had a pretty girl with him, and he was trying to amuse her. At length he said: "Did you ever try listening to a play with your eyes shut? You've no idea how funny it seems!" A middle-aged man with a red face sat just in front. He twisted himself. about in his seat and glared at the young man. "Young man," said he, "did you ever try listening to a play with your mouth shut?" Money by another name would be as hard to get. Clever people think that money is everything; people who are cleverer still know th*.t it is not. Many a damsel who is a kitten with men is a cat with women. If we grew bald in proportion, as we grow wise some of us would still be upholstered a foot thick on top. I Parker: "Folks say you always leave immediately after the sermon so as to escape the collection." Artful (hotly): "It's a base slander! The only reason I start so...

Waiting for the Message. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

Waiting for the Message. A schoolmaster was giving a lesson on physiology, and he told his pupils that whenever they moved an arm or a leg, it was in response to a message from the brain. "The brain always sends a mes sage down your arm or leg whenever you wish to move it," lie said. Later in the lesson a pupil misbe haved himself, and was told to come ' to the front of the class. ''Hold out your hand," ordered the teacher. The boy did not move. "Did you not hear me tell you to hold out your hand?" asked the schoolmaster, with asperity. "Yes, sir," replied the youth, "but I'm waiting for the message from my brain."

EARTHWORMS AND THEIR WORK Good Friends to the Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

EARTHWORMS AND THEIR WORK Good Friends to the Farmer. Most persons have noticed 'the i tracks of earthworms on damp paths, < after a night's rain, and the little heaps of earth cast up among the grass; but few, probably have thought of the great number of earthworms in the ground, and of the < immense amount of work they do, and of the benefit they confer on land, plants and animals. A visit at night, with a lantern, to a grassy spot would' show many worms, some crawling about, others with tails in their bur rows, feeling around for food, etc. Darwin, the famous naturalist, who observed them for nearly forty years, gives their number as about 53,000 to the acre for garden land; while, for field land, there would probably be about half that number. Poor land in a dry district has few worms, while rich land in a well-watered country has very many, a New Zealand record giving 300,000 to the acre. The Making of the Burrow. Worms are very timid, and seldom come out ...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

When Sir Piers Staunton rode forth to meet Sir Guy Montfort as an auxili ary in the onset, it was not his inten tion to do more than meet him, and thus save at once the letter of his en gagement and his own sense of knight ly honor. He was unfeeling, base, and revengeful; and the last indignant re jection of his suit by Edith had deter mined him upon some deed of despera tion that should insure him at once the triumph of his malice and the posses sion of his victim. He felt by no means satisfied that he should re ceive his daughter from the hand of Sir Guy, even should he prove instru mental in achieving his victory. These considerations made him reck less and resolute. He swore to win by force what chance might snatch from his grasp. He determined to sur prise her, when unprotected, and beat her off by the strong arm. Accordingly, soon after the appoint ed hour, but not till Sir Guy, no long er able to restrain his impatience and his ire at the eight of his deadly foe planted face ...

SIR GUY MONTFORI'S VOW. A Tale of Feudal Days. I. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

SIR GUY MONTFORI'S VOW. A Tale of Feudal Day6. "Nay I tell thee, Amy, that thou talkest like a witling. It is now nearly three moons since the day he promised to be back, and Sir Spenser Brydone is too good a knight to break his word to man or maid. He must have met with a disaster; or, woe's me; per haps he has heard of my cruel destma tian, and would desert me. j "And yet," replied Amy, quickly, { "little would the Lady Edith Montfort bear to be told of that young knight's bad faith or craven heart. Would my I . lady deign to take comfort from her j poor tirewoman, I would say again: that sure I am he will soon be here; at least, so I must think, talk I never so foolishly about it." "Well, Amy, well, take it not to heart that I spoke impatiently. I must hope, I must hope," returned Edith, with a heavy sigh. "Would to God, girl, that my situation were as lowly as thine own! how willingly would I exchange with thee!" These last words were uttered in a suppressed voice; and as she en...

His Next Order. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

His Next Order. A short time back, while a certain general was inspecting a regiment I just about tp depart for new quarters, he asked a young subaltern what would be his next order if he were in command of a regiment passing over a plain in a hostile country, and he found his front blocked by artillery, a brigade of cavalry on his right flank, and a morass oh his left, while his retreat was cut off by a large 'body of infantry. "Halt! Order arms, ground arms, kneel down, say your prayers!" re plied the subaltern. Common bracken fern laid down in places frequented by cockroaches will drive them away. A merry heart <}oeth like a good medicine. What sculpture is to the block jf marble, education is to the human soul. ...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward Lock ■& Co. Ltd., London and Melb 'chapter xxiii. A Glimpse of the Gems. . The thing was done, the boats were burnt, the Rubicon was crossed. There had been a conspiracy to deprive Herepath of the fruits of his toil, and if he were to get nothing he would see to it that the plotters were in no better case. He no longer doubted the existence of the conspiracy, it had been amply proved when he found Daniel Harley in.his workshop. In bitterness of spirit and the heat of the moment he had defied the -"-lather of the girl whom he had hoped to make his wife. Evidently the man was a criminal; indeed his mysterious life in the strange riverside house pointed to that. Some day the police ^ould Jay hands on liim and a great scandal would result. What was to become of Enid then? Herepath groaned as heNthought of it. In or dinary circumstances it would not have much mat'tered. His love for Enid was a pure an...

The Times. FRIDAY, OCT. 2nd. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

(fyift &t FRIDAY, OCT. 2nd. The spectacle of a world in arms and the titanic struggle now being waged in Europe among civilized nations, comes as a shock to all the finer instincts of mankind. For years past, we have seen the specta cle of nations, great and small, arm ing and equipping . with the most modern and deadly weapons that human brains could devise, for use as ci means .of offence and defence. Hundreds of millions of pounds sterling, have been expended build iiiCT navies and establishing armies, ui°til the mind failed to grasp its extent and became lost in its bewil dering immensity. Nations stag gered under their tremendous bur den and cheerfully labored on under the belief or pretence that it was all done in the interests of peace. But behind it all, there lay the terrible menace of war. Night and day the "Teat arsenals of the world labored on amidst the roar of machinery that foretold many a sad tale of the future, and seemed to chant a grim funeral dirge. Uncea...

RAISING THE DAIRY STANDARD. The Necessity for Cow Testing. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

RAISING THE D/*iRY STANDARD. The Necessity for Cow Testing. II r. \V. J. Byrne, a well-known New Zealand authority on dairy farming, contributed ail interesting paper on the above subject at a recent meet ing of the New Zealand National Dairy Association. We extract the following from the paper, as it will be of interest to our own farmers:— The annual production of butter fat per cow in the Dominion is about 1601b., and it is not too much to as sert that this standard could be raised to 2601b. or 3001b. if proper methods 1 were followed. If we can only raise j it to 2601b., the increase would mean an addition tp the value of our dairy I produce of £3,500,000 per annum. If | a 3001b. standard is attained the in- ! crease would amount to £5,000,000 I per annum. When the carrying capacity of the land under oc cupation is increased by intense ' cultivation, these amounts will be con- ■ siderably increased. Denmark has set 1 a worthy example in herd improve- 1 ment, which might with gre...
