LIME WATER FOR CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915
LIME WATER FOR CALVES. Calves which arc being fed from the bucket often benefit considerably by boing given some linio water, a useful form of treatment for troubles like diarrhoea aud iudigestiou. The pro portions may be of some such ratio as a quarter or one-third of lime water to the ration of milk. This prevents acidity and also the formation of the milk into unduly largo and indigestible curds. Lime water is made by adding two ounces of slaked lime to, say, half a dozen pints of water, The mixture should be stirred briskly, aud then al Iowod to settle. The dissolved mattor will go to the bottom of the • vessel and the lime water can b; poured off. The solution is then ready for use.
A DEVASTATING PARASITE. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915
A DEVASTATING PARASITE. In the State of Texas, where tho chief supplies of raw cotton como from, there is a small grccnish-groy insect, only a quarter of an inch in length, and souiotimes not even that, which has caused the loss of uo less a sum than £1-1,000,000 to the United .States, and has done an incalculable amount of.damage. This lit tic terror is the cotton boll weevil, whose presence means des truction to the plantation on which it makes its appearance, and which is creeping northward through tho great cotton belt of Texas at the rate of 75 miles each year. The shadow of its millions is more portentous than that of a storm cloud | because in its shadow there lies tho possible ruin of America's second greatest crop. "Within the next decade, according to experts, the cotton boll weevil will j unless its ravaging powers are de ! created, cost the country more than j £30,000,000 a year. The cotton crop | will be blighted. The price of clothos i and of all cotton manufactures ri...
THE ART OF BUDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915
THE ART OF BUDDING. Thero are very tew amateurs wno have not at ono timo or another triod their luck at the art of budding. Jtost of us have experienced the more or less anxious timo which follows the inser tion of a bud and the doubts and fears that naturally arise regarding the suc i cess of the operation. These experi ences of success and failure all add an indefinable charm to the art of garden ing, espociallv when it is followed for pleasure and not as a means of liveli hood. One of the very best plants to practice budding upon is the rose, aud tho season has now arrived when this work can bo undertaken. The process is an exceedingly simple ono, and after l a vcrv little practice anyone whose fiu gors "are not "all thumbs" can bud | with sufficient ease to got a good deal ' of pleasuro out of it.
Here and There. WORLD'S BUSIEST STATION, [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915
Here and There. WORLD'S BUSIEST STATION", During the 24 hours no fewer thnn 213!) tniins pass through the embank went station, and each one stops there. Tluvt is absolutely a world's rocord. On the District Railway section aione as many as 44 trains an hour are run on a single sot o£ rails. Wlion it is come iu mind that every train slows down to enter the station, stops a brief period, and takes a few seconds to get up speed again, re peating the same process loss than halt a mile further on, it will be re alised not only that the service must be run with clockwork regularity, but that such a volume o£ tralUo could be handled at all if the elimin ation of seconds had not been elevat ed into an ivrt. This London Underground service is, in fact, almost the only one, if not the only one, in the world whoso time-table is based not on minute^ but on seconds.
AS HORSE—SO BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915
AS HORSE—SO BOY. It was a slippery day, and tho horses drawing heavy loads over a little MU in a city street' wero bard put to it to keup their footing. Their drivers, all of whom wore merciful enough to hklt thorn half-way up the ascent and let them catch their breath, differed widely in the means employed to start them again. "Get up I Get upt" shouted one, plying his whip with every ex clamation. "G'lang there!" cried ap other, confining the use of his whip to a menacing snap of the lash. The beasts responded with a bravo Btruggle, somotimeB successful, sometimes futile. But one teamster, leaving his whip in its .rocket, took bis near horse by" tho bridle aud tugged at it with a cheery: "Come ou, now! Let's see what wo can do after our rest!" The effect on his team might have seemed magical to an observer out of rcach of his voice. Signalling with their ears that they un derstood, both horses strained forward with real eagerness, clutching at tho pavement with their pointed shoes...
To Develop the Bust. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915
To Develop.the Bust. A simple, safe, aud harmless way in which any lady, no matter how thin or old, can increase her bust de velopment from two to five inches in a few weeks is to tako 20 grains of phormoid, a standard concentrated food product, just before each meal. For convenience, it is best to ask your chemist to supply you with the stan dard phormoid tablets, which con tain 20 grains each. For a few shil lings you can get enough to last you two weeks, during which time yonr bust should develop from one to two inches. Many ladies report fivo inches development in four weeks, and at the same time marked im provement in the general health. Phormoid is pleasant to the taste. Messrs Coghlan, Boase and Co., of Tattersall's" Bazaar, Ballarat, report Feb. 3 — Baconers — Prime heavy weights, 92/0 to 94/0; extra, 96/0 to 98/0; medium weights, 85/0 to 88/0; lightweights, 77/0 to 80/0.

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915
FOR WOMEN Dining tho past few months (says the "Daily Chronicle") women in in creasing numbers have been practising riflo it'iooting. There have always been a few enthusiasts who have been among tho most faithful members at both tho outsido ranges in summer, and the inside ones in winter, but various causes have conspired to ron der the sex in general apathetic in tho "'ono of theso has undoubtedly been tho difficulty of learning. Most of the covered ranges nro in towns, and as they have been got up by men for their own instmction and amusement, n-onien members are not included. For instance, in London, only two or 'three clubs admit women, and1 then they are only allowed to shoot on special days. In consequence they have not been given many opportunities to compete in matches, as tho opposing team in all probability could not provide competi tion of their own sex to shoot against tiiem. Thus their prowess has not been encouraged by ambition, and tho dewiro to excel. Now, however, s...

SULPHUR ON POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915
SULPHUR ON POTATOES. It has been found that by rolling the tubers in powdered sulphur before planting potatoes infested with scab, tho danger of diseaso is diminished. Carrying tho experiments a step fur ther, trials have been inado to test the effect of applying the sulphur to tho soil at time of planting. The results have proved to bo very satisfactory. Not only were the tubers almost free from scab, but the crop was more abnn dant. Did the increased crop come from the freedom from diseaso, or did the sulphur exercise a direct manurial effect on tho plants? To test this ques tion, a set of trials has been made at an agricultural station in England. Ap plications of the fertilisers suitable to the crop were made to different lots— namely, 4. cwt. of sulphate of potash, and 2 cwt. of nitrate of soda, and to the p'ots were added respectively 2 cwt, and 4 cwt. of powdered sulphur per acre. All the plots to which, sul phur had been applied showed an in crease, and tho completo manure p...
