LADIES' COLUMN. FOR MARRIED FOLK. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914
LADIES' COLUMN. FOr MARRIED FOLK, Society requires that, whatever their private relations, husband and wife lace the.world as a unit, harmonious, and with interests identical. One thing good form imperatively demands-that by no mischance, no loss of sel.ec ntrol, shall family dis cords be revealed to strangers, chil dren or servants. An uncontrolled 'voice Is always unmannerly and undig. nifled. A readiness to: give up in little things is the most tactical appeal pos sible for a return of courtesy at 6thor times when the matter may be of im. portance to us,
THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914
THICK OR THIN SOWING. The quality of seed which should be sown depends on a number of cir cumstances, such as character of thl soil, its moisture, freedom from woods, size, gorminat!ug power, age of the seed, and again on the time of sowing, the nature of the plant, method of sowing, deplth, etc. All these factors have to be considered; but in general we think it may be said that seed is sown more often too thickly than the reverse, especially when the operation is performed by hand. It is a waste of seed, and, moreover, detrimental in so far as it tends to produce weakly plants, sub. ject to disease, and also to produce cereals that "lodge," a great source of loss to cereal growers. The age of the seed is an important factor. Ol( seed has lost some of Its germinating power, so new seed sliotld be used. Grouchy Parent: No, sir, my daugh ter shall not marry you! Suitor: But your daughter wishes to, sir, and she told me Just now that you would deny her nothing. (rnulchy Parent: That, ...
GOOD MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914
GOOD MANNERS, Have you ever heard any one say, "Oh, if I were riclh'I'd have things nice then''? Did you ever notice whe ther she had things as nice without being rich as she could? Just as the rich anrd poor use the same standard of spelling, as free to one as to the other, so they can both use the same standard of good breeding 'If they choose; Good manners cost attention, and that is all. The same man or wo man who would feel disgraced to write I for I, or to spell poorly, thinks it is no matter if he eats with' his knife, keeps his hat on in the house, or is re miss in the many little things that cuistom has decided ought to be done. There is the same reason for being remiss in spelling as in politeness, Politeness is like an a#r-cushion- though there may be nothing in it, it eases the jolt of this world wonder fully," That one is poor is no ex cuse.for rough ways; neither does it excuse a slack table service, It is the little things that make living delight ful, Mrs, Whitney is...
CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914
CHILDREN'8 FRIENDSHIPS. From about the fifth or sixth year children are apt to. make firm friend ships with their small contemporaries, This should be a watchful period for mothers, for these early friendships have a marked influence on the mind, morals and manners of a child, Nearly. every character is moulded very largely by early companionship and surroundings. Every mother should take care to. be her children's. companion as far as possible, for ehe may be quite sure that if they are left to the care of servants, they will at the best only attain the ideal manners and customs of the nursery or ser vants's,hall, which are not quite those of the cultured classes, Children re quire the companionship of little folk of their own age, and a mother should be so much her children's friend that she knows .all their associates, and is able to nlp in the bud any acquaint ance which she thinks undesirable. The mother who, to save herself .fa tigue, lets her children seek compan Ions among t...
AGRICULTURE. THE FARM MANAGER. What He Should Be. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914
AGRICULT URE. -4-- THE FARM MANAGER. What He Should Be. 'Thlls Is what the farm manager should be:--Systematic, persistent, and methodical, but ever cheerful and hopeful, Ever learning something more about nature's powers, and keep ing in view the definite aim for re sults. Sucecesful farm-managors, like managers of great corporations, are men of ability to think logically and reason correctly; they are men of self control, endowed with self-confidence, but willing to learn from others. No man can succeed in a great enterprise without making use of information given by others. One may arrive at conclusions, and achieve results in a different manner from anyone else of which he has knowledge, but at the samo time he has used information given by someone. Farming informa tion of use now is of recent origin; new facts being ascertained every year, hence the successful farmers are those who not only work diligent ly on their own farms, but make use of all the information they can get fr...

GREEN MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914
GREEN MANURING. The object of green manuring is tb furnish a supply of organic matter, and to collect nitrogen froli the air, To get the best results from green manuring, it is necessary in the first place to supplement it by the appli cation of fertilisers. The necessity for the audition of nitrogen is depend. ent upon the success of the green crop and on the requirements of the following crops. For instance, if the green crop has grown well, potatoes and dereals on good or medium soil should not require the help of any additional artificial nitrogen, Follow. ing a poor green crop, it may be ad. visable to give either potatoes or cer eals, especially oats, the benefit of a top-dressing of lcwt, nitrate of soda, Alangels following a green crop should have a light dressing of nitrate of soda, A small dressing of superphos phate is advisable to increase the. effect of the green manuring. For roots and potatoes the soil should re ceive l%/cwt, to 2cwt, per acre; cer eals a little less,...
LIME FOR THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914
LIME FOR THE SOIL. The nature of the lime used de pends upon the purpose for which it is required, Lime is applied to the soil for the following objects:- (a) To lighton heavy clays; (b) to sweet. en sour soils; (c) to supply plant Lood, In the first case, either unslack?d lime (powdered quicklime), or quite ireshly slacked lime is the most of. fective, the action on the clay being both of a mechanical and chomica'l nature, breaking up the colloidal clay particles when the lime is slacked in contact with the clay, Slacked lime is much less effective, as the action is only a mechanical one, as there Is no combination of the lime with the silicates of the clay,
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." Large crops are not always profit able crops, and the finest looking ani mal does not always give the larges, net return. For generations we have been taught and urged to grow bigge, crops, unmindful of the relation of in? creased cost to increased production. The value of increased production al. ways depends upon whether or not It Is economically secured, i.e., upon whether the margin of profit an acre is increased or not, Another Important factor always to be kept in mind is the relation which any part of the farm enterprise bears to the whole,. A crop judged by it. self might be profitable and yet the. system might be unprofitable, For example, tImothy hay might prove a .good crop in any one year, or even two or three years, but eventually the yield must decline, because a system of farming with this crop alone would not be likely to maintain fe'. tility, so that the system could not be called profitable, On the other hand, clover might not prove to be...
