RABBIT DESTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914
".RABBITrr DESTRUCTION.. "A W'Vagga farmer of lengthened experi cuce," our local correspondent writes, "!has been for many years trying to discover the cheapest and most effective method of exterminating .rabbits. Every method re commended to him has been given a fair trial, and for a long time he believed in fumigation as the best of the approved methods. Fuimigation, however, was not entirely satisfactory, and he 'has nowir aban doned it in favor of steaming. Mr. W. Patterson, the, farmer in question, adopts this plan with excellent results. He takes the traction engine when not required for other work, and, selecting a deep burrow in a warren, fixes a steam pipe as far down as it will go: All the-. outlets .are stopped with earth. T'he steam is tuiirned on gently to reveal any outlets at first overlooked:. These being secured, the steam is turned full on, and in a few minuites there is not a live rabbit in the buiiro*s: In a day- a large area can be' thus t"reated by three men, o...
HARVESTING PEAS. THE LATEST DEVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914
THE LATEST DEVICE.. One drawback in getting the advantage of 'a crop of peas for s'heep and lamb fat tening is the heavy expense for seed. As a rule the harvesting of field peas is con ducted on somewhat primitive lines. " In some cases they are thrashed out by hand with a flail. Some growers tramp out the grain by' walking horses over the straw as it is. collected in or near the shed. Others construct a special roller, which, working on a pivot and drawn round and round..by a horse attached to the- end,-is-considered a failly gdgd method 'Of getting the peas out of the straw. The.laige.'.arld elaborate steam thrashing plant--is, also availed of at times. None of These systems has, however, answered as thoroughly as could be desired. Mr. J. E. Riley, of Whittlesea, has solved the problem of harvesting peas economically. After stripping his oats and wheat with a Sunshine harvester, he turned his attention -to getting in his crop of peas; in an equally inexpensive manner. He first mow...

HORSE FEEDING. DIFFERENT METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914
HORSE FEEBI? ,. - DIFFERENT METHODS. "The Leader". articles upon .he manage ment of horses, a correspondent writes, are very much appreciated, and this is good where there are so many who affect to know everything. You can scarcely go out, he remarks, without meeting someone who will tell you what is the right thing .to do in any circumstances. Your umn versal genius will manage your farm, buy and drive you a motor car, and tell you how to make your business a success, all in a few minutes. No wonder, then, that he can tell you what is a proper ration for a horse, and you will find him holding forth on the subject. with his usuial elo quence. I heard him the other day stat ing that every horse that had heavy haul age to do should be allowed so many pounds of oats and other grain per diem, and so many pounds of hay, and that this should be enforced by law. 'Every man who knows anything at all about horses must know that one horse will thrive on half, or even a third, of. what another...
