POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Lilydale Express and Yarra Glen, Wandin Yallock, Upper Yarra, Healesville and Ringwood Chronicle — 13 February 1914
POULTRY NOTES: ; .It is. surprising more poultry keeper, do- not keep a well-filled' dust bath, which is the best: of all. cures against insect troiubles. It is little trouble ,or expense. Dry earth or road dust, to a depth of Din, to 12in., in a deep -box, kept in a dry, sheltered position, is all that is required. A little pow dered sulphur should be added occas sionally, whilst carbolio powder is very useful in bad 'cases. - Some hens are so infest-i" with insect life, through neglect _of the dust bath, that it is sometimes necessary to dip them bodily in a bath made of a decoction of quassa chips and tobacco water, afterwards placing in a warm. coop to dry. Such insect troubles are generally confined to fowls W'hich cannot have tieir. liberty and are kept in too dose quarters, as poultry -running on fields will find their dust ba-th under hedges and other .places. Prevention is better than cure, and .whether young or old, fowls kept' in confinement niust have a dust bath, ,-or p...

TURNIPS AND NITROGEN. [Newspaper Article] — Lilydale Express and Yarra Glen, Wandin Yallock, Upper Yarra, Healesville and Ringwood Chronicle — 13 February 1914
TURNIPS AND NITROGEN. ' Mr Thomas Jamieson, Director of the Agricultural Research Association of Scotland, has made a careful con sideration of the turnip, which ex perience and experiment show does not require artificial nitrogen, but is spec ially supplied with means for fixing the necessary qualities of tyis element from the open air. The rape plant has a structure practically identifical with the turnip. The special examin ,.on of the turnip and rape was brought. about from the fact that a better crop' of oats was secured after ploughing rape than resulted from oats after clover . In this connection, Mli Jamieson declares, "Not to carry the turnip.leaves off the field "6annot be too strongly. repeated. The benefit to the succeeding crop is 'well-known; though it was n6t realised that the absorption .fl nitrogen "was by the' leaves, and 'that. provision of this ele ment to the succeeding crop is the ox planation. The turnip "shows in a dried plant per 100 parts 2.25 'of.-nitrogen...

ENGLISH FARM PRODUCTS. Part II of the Agricultural Statistics for 1912, issued by the British Board of Agriculture, deals with the produce of crops, and brings out the deficient yields of wheat, oats, and potatoes, ow ing to the wet season. - A table is given, showing the hypothetical' value of. orops. Wheat is put at £10,883.000 as compared with £12,210,000 in 1911; barley, £8,452,000; against £8,614,000 oats; £9,108,000, against £9,677,000; potatoes, £,98,90,000, - against £10,118,000. On the other hand, clover, etc., hay is given) at £10,257,000,. against £9,899,000; and meadow hay, £29,710,000, against £21 173,000; flops are estimated at £2,259,000, against £3,428,000, the .drop in this -anse being duo to the de crealsed prie. It is nbtecd as re markable that the market prices were so nearly similar, in three instances identical, in the two seasons, and ex cept - for wheat, potatoes and hops, the nominal valuo of the crops of 1912 is said to compare favorably with that of the cr...

A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Lilydale Express and Yarra Glen, Wandin Yallock, Upper Yarra, Healesville and Ringwood Chronicle — 13 February 1914
A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION,... "What is the highest record we can expect a dairy cow to make?" is a query that has often been made: As it was with the trotting horse, 20-or.30 years ago, when animals began to ap pear that could trot a mile in loss than threo minutes, for instance, Maude S'., making a record of 2.10, many thought that the speed limit of the horse had been reached, and so it was with the dairy cow. When Yeksa Sunbeam, a Guernsey, made her phenomenal re cord of 857 pounds of fat in one year, it was doubted by many who had not studied thd breeding Zof dairy couws closely that her record, would scarcely. be equalled, -if ever excelled. Not long after this. Colantha 4th's: Johanna, a Holstein, made 998 pounds of fat, excel ling Yeksa Suinbeam's record by 141 pounds of fat. Here the world's re cord remained for several years, but it was finally displaced by "IBanostine Belle De Kol, who made in one year 1058.31 pounds of fat. .lacoba Irene, witli a yearly-record of 9.31 lbs of ...
REMEDY FOR GLARING LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Lilydale Express and Yarra Glen, Wandin Yallock, Upper Yarra, Healesville and Ringwood Chronicle — 13 February 1914
REMEDY FOR GLARING'LIGHT. ,A novel device has" recently been perfected for overcoming the danger from glare in motor-car headlights. This device consists of a rack of alum inimU plates, placed behind the main Flass and in front of the lens, and c'rner. These plates are placed horn Oi:otaily, one above the other, about one-eigth of an inch apart, and have their lower surfaces highly polished, anf' the upper surfaces painted a dead black. The effect is that from a dis tance of about 150 yards, the,full light is seen without any apparent shading, abt as the car approaches, the light and dlare become weaker and weaker, until, when a few yards away, nothing can be seen but a faint grey glow. One of the hottest days of the sum mer was experienced in Melbourne on Wednesday, when the temperature rose to over 100 degrees.
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Lilydale Express and Yarra Glen, Wandin Yallock, Upper Yarra, Healesville and Ringwood Chronicle — 13 February 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") With reports of a favorable nature regarding the season coming iron, many parts of the State, it is somewhat. of a shock to'people in the more happily circunstanced localities to learn from the story of the deputation the other day that many Mallee settlers have bad a particularly bad time. Acoording to the statements adduced, many of the settlers, some of whom are amongst tllhe pioneers of the western .portions, have been, brought to' a precal ious fin ancial position as the result -of drought and the ravages of grubs. The, ob ject 6f the deputation was to seek as sistance from the government to tide them over present dfficulties, to the time, whi ch they are-confident willciomne, wuhen good returns aroagain obtained. The deputation was representative of settlers in a large area "of. mallee coun-' try, . about 100 miles long; extending' from Ouyen .to the South Apstrdlian border. .

THE LARGEST ICE CAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Lilydale Express and Yarra Glen, Wandin Yallock, Upper Yarra, Healesville and Ringwood Chronicle — 13 February 1914
THE:LARGEST ICE CAVE. A few years ago some members c thoeAustrian Speieological Society dis covered In the Dachstein mountains some oaverns which are amongst the largest in Europe. One of these grot toes, the longitudinal axis of which is fully. 6500ft. long, moreover, turned out to offer additional interest by its truly enormous ice masses, and was found to be the largest known ice cave in the world. 'Though a scorching sun may be burning outside on the bare mountain rock, there is always an icy wind blowing through this undefworll. freezing everything within its reach. Only sometimes, when the outside tem -peraturo ranges between 32 and 41 deg. Cat., and a comparatively warm rain penetrates through the fissures of the rook, entering right into the cavern, will there be a temporary calmhn and dis tinct melting of the ice, The Daclh stein ice cave comprises several domes filled with ice, which communicate with one another through a number of fro zen galleries.

FRUIT GROWING IN CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Lilydale Express and Yarra Glen, Wandin Yallock, Upper Yarra, Healesville and Ringwood Chronicle — 13 February 1914
L:RUIT GROWING IN CANADA. The.Canadian Minister of Agriculture -is causing a special inquiry lto, be made into .the fruit-growing industry of Can ada. "The investigation will be con ducted with a view to seouring the best and most reliable information, respect ing- the area and extent of land adapt ed to fruit growing in the provinces, and the varieties of fruit, which have been found to be most profitable and most suocessful- in each locality; the tendency towards cohcentrating on the production of standard varieties on a large scale, and the facilities for dis tributiun and marketing. Of course it is' well-known that fruit-growing in Canada has already assumed very cony sidcrable proportions, but the industry is capable of indefinite expansion in view of the demand of the home and expert markets.
POTASH AND CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Lilydale Express and Yarra Glen, Wandin Yallock, Upper Yarra, Healesville and Ringwood Chronicle — 13 February 1914
POTASH AND CROPS. I One of .the most striking offects of potash. manures is the remarkable way in which they promote the growth of clovers and other leguminous plants. Thus when potash i4 applied to a field of 'mixed- herbage, it encourages the growth of the clovers to such an cx Lent that the general aspeot of the vegetation is entirely changed. It also cncourages the growth of the filer and indre nutritious grasses A fur tIher cffect of potash is that it rendere the plant more resistant to the attackl of fungoid parasites, well seen in the rnse of rust on wheat, leaf-spot fun gus on mangolds, and even in some cases "finger and toe" in turnips. Potash is theo dominant- manurial in gredient for potatoes, where it not only improves the quality1, but gives a high-. er yield, which contains a larger pro portion of marketable size potatoes.
