The [?] CURING SULTANA RAISINS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
Wm ^incgarb. CURING SULTANA RAISINS. The grapes must not be picked until fully ripe. Even more care mutt be taken with this variety than with the muscat. All the preparations for bleaching should be made before any of tbe fruit is gathered. A large iron kettle or tack for dipping the fruit is necesBary. The solution used ib made by dis solving concentrated lye in hot water. Ia Smyrna the lye is made by leaching the ashes produced by burning the cuttings of the grapa vices, While the lye thus produced is highar priced than the concentrated article there are reasons why itB use may be more advisable. If concentrated lye be used the proportion of the mixture should be 1 1b. to 5 gallons of water. Of the other variety 1 J 1b. should be used to 5 gallons. Sesides the dipping kettle there must be facilities for rinsing the fruit quickly and thoroughly in clean running water. To make the fruit as fine looking as possible, a little pure olive oil should be added to the bath. The oil must be...

TREATMENT OF BARNYARD MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
TREATMENT OF BARNSTARD MAN UKE. The proper treatment of barnyard manure is a matter of pecuniary interest to the farmer. Professor Weber, in a recent report issued b? the Ohio State on agriculture, says on this *sb j eet:— h The stable floor should be impervious to water, and may be made of concrete, clay, brick, or plank. 2. Enongh bedding should be used to com pletely absorb the liquid excrements. Straw is the beet bedding. The amount of beddiog bhonld be equal to one fourth of tha dry matter of the feed given. This would ia general be about 6 to 6J lb. for every 1,000 lb. 3. Where tbe manure is allowed toacsumn late in the stable it is often necessary to employ some absorbent for the eacapin^ ammonia. The beat absorbents are muck and soil sprinkled over the surface from time to time. Where these cannot be had the follow ing subttancea may be employed :—Gyp3um, or land piaster, i lb. per day for every 1,000 lb. live weight; sulphuric acid, 1 part to every 1,000 parts of water.

THE AUSTRALIAN WOOL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
THE AUSTRALIAN WOOL TRADE. We have received Goldsbrough's annual review of the Australian wool trade for the season 1888 0. The summary is exhaustive, and is Australian in construction and senti ment. We make the following extracts :— In presenting our usual annual survey of the ceruse of the Australian wool trade, we have reason to congratulate all who have assisted in its development on its present proud position amongst tbe great commercial enterprises of the world. Phenomenal as haa been the increase in production, the expansion of the local sales has been still more remarkable, and most Ar rest the attention of aU interested in tha growth of tbe staple. This season, for the first time in our history, the volume of business transacted in the local markets has reached within a few thousand bales of one-half our total production— a result which at so early a date the pioneers of the industry never could have anticipated. And now, as each succeed ing year witnesses the entry of eom...

MITIGATING DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
MITIGATING DROUGHT. The results of drought are terrible. Efery cultivator of experience knows this, and dreads the fatal results instinctively; so much so that one is constrained to believe that not a few tillers of the soil are reduced thereby to a state bordering on mental paralysis similar to that produced by sudden calamity, and are rendered incapable of dealing practically with the prob lem of lessening the dangers by which agricul ture, in all areas, is in greater or lesser degree surrounded. That the State is, in some measure, responsible for some of the evils which beset the farmer's path has been clearly proved since enquiries into the state of our forests Inve been set on foot few persons will be inclined to dnnbt ; bnt farmers, ar wall as nt-.hnra apo f.,--n apt to make & scapegoat of Government as if ail the ills of life arise from that source and none from individual error. How to mitigate drought is a problem very easy of solution, and depends more on individua...

COMMON DISORDERS AFFECTING CATTLE. [Prom the Mark Lane Express.] ACJINOJIYKOSIS— INDUBATED TONGUE. This formidable looking, word may strik stock-owners as scarcely coming within tbe pale of ' common disorders,' but it is only an old enemy under a new name, it being the designation fixed upon to express the malady hitherto described as indurated or schirrhous tongue. It is an infectious disease, and there fore the list of maladies due to specific causes which we have been considering would not be complete without some reference to it, apart from its importance to stockowners aB a disease often causing great loss when a number of the animals composing the herd are affected at one time. The condition Eeems of more frequert occurrence of late or else it has become more nuiicabie since it was investigated and deecribed eome four or five years ago by Dr. Fleming, M.R.C.V.S. It appears to have no popular appellation except the 'wooden tongue' of the German, but most farmers will have seen ...
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. During the past week the weather generally Las been dry and pleasant, rather too pleasant in fact for the agriculturist, who would now be glad of a iew showers. We are rapidly ap proaching the season, however, -when we may expect weather of a more favorable character for the farmers, and when the creeks will be running and the dams full. Advantage has been taken of the fine weather in some parts of the north to get in the wheat for the next season's harveBt, and it is to be hoped for the ease of these farmers specialty tbat the season able rains may soon come, but independently of these a downpour just now would be heartily welcomed. The rains which have fallen at intervals since the beginning of the year have had a wonder fully beneficial effect upon vegetation (says the Melbourne Leader), the general appearance of tbe country at the present time being more like that of early spring, and -very different to that usually noticed at this time of year. Ploughing ope...
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN VINEGROWERS' ASSOCIATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN VQJE GRO WEBS' ASSOCIATION. TO IEE EDITOB. Sir— On reading the report of the meeting of the above association, I noticed that Mr. Thomas Hardy, on resuming the discussion of my paper on 'Fermentation,' said that in one portion of my paper I stated that some wine3 were acid because they contained an excess of tartar, and that they were aviolaceous, because they did not contain the quantity of organic, tartaric, and malic acids to precipitate the color left free by the pulp mixed with the albuminous principles. He considered that contradictory, because it apparently indicated that there was too much acid in one case and in the other not sufficient, I am sorry that my duty prevented me being present at the meeting, because I would have esphined to Mr, Hardy that the points in my paper that he considers contradictory are not eo. I did not mention in my paper that some wines were acid, but I said tnat they were acrid. Mr. Hardy confounded the tartar with tha tartaric aci...
