DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. Under usual conditions, the cow yard is a serious handicap to good dairy products. It should be set up on c. well-drained piece of land with the slope away from the milking shed and dairy. The use of gravel is to be recommended, and some have employed concrete to make sure that the cows are kept away from mud and filth. The yard should be kept clean, and the manure removed promptly and conserved at some con siderable distance from the millring shed or dairy premises. This pre caution will also greatly help in keep ing down the number of flies. The' practice of milking in unsuitable sur roundings is possibly doing more to retard progress in dairying than any other existing custom.

of [?]NDITION OF SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

°^|-NDITION OF SOIL; If the land is wet and cold when seed is sown, eveu though the germi nation is good, the young plants re ceive such a severe check that they never wholly recover The land in tended for spring and summer crops should he carefully prepared some ■time 'before the period for sowing. Then just' previous to seeding, the surface should be cultivated, so as to give a fulness to the surface soil and still have the ground firm under neath. The principal advantage of this method is that the moisture col lected from rains is z-etained in the lower layers of the furrow, and is there for the use of the rrop. Where as, if ploughed up or deeply cultiva ted. in the spring, there is always the risk that the drying winds of the •spring -will rob the soil of too much moisture, leaving insufficient for tiie use of the crop. In districts. with a heavy rainfall ;that is evenly distributed over the -whole of the season this precaution is not so important, but in other dis tricts not so...

FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. B. Harrison, Burringbar, Tweed River, inquires as to the proper mettl ed of making a good and cheap com post heap, for manuring purposes. .The compost heap is a most valu able adjunct to a farm or orchard. The principle of this method of mak ing manure is the fermentation of easily-decomposed vegetable material in the presence of earth and lime. It "is not only substances like peat, litter, straw, which form the usual basis of compost .heaps that are thus decom posable, but almost every kind of or ganic substance, 'both of vegetable and animal origin, can be thus composted. Dead leaves, bush scrapings, sawdust, weeds, tops and stalks of vegetables, as well as bone and animal refuse, the operation is much slower, and sub stances like bones should, be first crushed. It is also important to be .sure that animal refuse so treated is not derived from a diseased source. As a general method of procedure, 'he following will be found satisfac tory:—Make a he...

The Fire Peril. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

The Fire Peril. l/ai-'l week a fire started ill tbe Prior's paddock south of the town but fortunately a number of men iu the neighborhood, iocludiug Messrs Woruer, M'Gee. and Glee soii, saw it before the flames bad time to make much progress. It was also fortuuate that in close proximity to the fire there was a trough used for watering .'took. In this was saturated a number of bags and the fire was beaten out before an acre of grass was de stroyed. There was scarcely auy wind at the. time. But for the fortuitous conjunction of circum stances it is hard to conjecture where the fire would have termi nated. Had there been such a bigh wind as on Xmas day, or had not prompt as-is'auce been avail able, the fire might have spread through the i ichly; grassed paddocks of Mr Holmes till it reached E.I . more or further. It was ascer tained that tbe fire was started by a couple of small boys who lit matches in the paddock. "What great events from trifling causes spring." Some years ago a cow ...

SCIENTIFIC FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

SCIENTIFIC FARMING. Farming is 110 longer without at traction for the enterprising young man. It is calling to its service the engineer and the scientist. A farm conducted on modern lines can em brace as many of the nmvest mechani cal developments at any other form of industry. Many farmers have now their own little laboratory, for exam ination of . the soil, and suitable fertilisers, an electric plant for light' ing the house and supplying power to the workshops, petrol-driven milking machines, ploughs and cultivators,and portable engines of the internal com^, bustion tjrjje, for thrashing and barn •vvojk. ''^Science having got this grip on agriculture, farm life cannot fail to reclaim many who abandoned it originally on the plea of monotony.

Land-Seekers to Visit Rochester. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

Land-Seekers to Visit Chester. Ill our last issue vve commented on the hurried manner iu which landseekers visiting the local irri gation areas were whirled through the settlements to the detriment, of. the district. town and settlers alike.; Mr Elwood Mead has ■ recognWti the justice of our contention, and referred to the fact that-when the. landseekers' excursion due .next' month arrives in Rochester the party will lemain in the district two days in order that ihe settlements on both sides of the Campaspe may be inspected. While admitting that this arrangement is a vast im provement ou the old hustling style, and while we are thankful for small mercies, we think that a day is altogether to short to-allow of more thau a casual in-pection of any of the settlers' blocks around Rochester. The excursionists, how ever. will only iiud the Rochester trip ou the timetable. This is a decided step in the right direction.

IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. The value of permanent pasture is often prejudiced by the presence in it of a large number of weeds. Not only is the thick growth of the nour ishing grass hindered, but also nox ious weeds spoil the quality, so that it is an essential part of good culti vation to keep the pasture free from such unsatisfactory constituents. The question—How can I keep my pas ture land free from weeds? is not an easy one to deal with. There is, how ever, no doubt that by a judicious use of chemical fertilisers much can be done. But . chemical fertilisers alone will not do everything. Their use must often be assisted by other means. Sorrel is caused toy sourness of the soil through want of ventilation and drainage, and a deficiency of plant food, especially lime. The reason why fertilisers work in this (beneficial way is that most weeds flourish in soils poor in the 'mineral constituents, lime, phosphate and potash. These good plant foods do not agree with weeds, While, on ...

THE MAN IN THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

THE MAN IN THE MOON, By A.L.S. Is it possible that the Man in th« Moon has descended from the posi uou of a fully-credited, reality to that of a mere figure of speech; but even as. such he is of great use to us, es pecially when we wish to assert our ignorance of anything. When we state that we know no more than the Man in the Moon we are attributing the densest ignorance to that some what mythical personage; we at least credit him with being an agnostic of the purest water. He could scarcely be even that if he did not exist at all. By our common language we are perpetuating a remarkable article of old folk-lore. Science and the tele scope give us their own interpretation of the features that we discern Oh the moon's surface, but in popular belief there was once really a man there, whatever may now have become of him. He was banished thither for the crime of..gathering sticks on Sun day. - - ' If we refer to the Book of Num bers we find that a man who gathered sticks on the Sabbath ...

The Spineless Cactus-A Wonderful Plant. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

The Spineless Cactus-=A Wonderful Plant. , To the Editor. Sir,—This useful and proline plant is not much known and it would prove invaluable to pastora lists, especially iu poor soils, or semi-arid couutrywkere vegetation of auy kind exists with difficulty. During the hot dry seasons or periods of drought, when other fodder is scarce th!'s plaut would be luxuriant, and being of a rich, moist nature, the necessity for much water, if any, would be greatly minimised. It can be readily grown iu auy class of dry soil, and after the first year will produce about 100 tons per acre of succulent and nutritious fodder which cau be fed to all kinds of stock and poultry, and it is highly praised by the leading authorities who say that it makes beef and blatter of the best quality. The improved varieties yield heavy crops of large and nutritious fruit \Vhich makes excellent preserves and the fleshy youlig leaves are a good and wholesome vegetable cooked in various ways.

Rochester Fire Brigade. The fire station being so frequently used for meetings, band practice. &c., has been the cause of tbe brigade having to make additions m order to meet the demands.

Honest John. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

Honest John. George Carter, a very just man, carrying on. business in a small vil lage, found it necessary one day to leave his establishment to the sole charge of John, his assistant, and, as usual, thinking it necessary to im press upon him the necessity of deal ing fairly with his customers, left him with these words:— "Well, John, if ever you are in doubt, quote a text to yourself, and you will find great help from it in your dealings." He had not been gone long before a lady walked into the shop and ask ed to see some shawls. John, pulling one out from under the counter, asked her how she liked it, stating that the price was half a crown. It was a very nice one, but being able to afford better, asked to see others. John, ready as ever, fetched an other out of the same box, and spread ing this out on the counter, stated the price to be five shillings. Still she was not satisfied, so, fetching an other one, also out of the same box, he asked her how she. would like that at half a...

INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. In the treatment of weeds, it is em phatically a ease of "a stitch in time saves nine." They should toe preven ted from seeding, whenever possible, and when buying seeds for sowing, get them pure, so as to 'be certain that you are not sowing wild seeds. Weeds often grow more vigorously tihan useful plants, and, as a conse quence, they shade or erow-d, or par tially choke the seedlings of the de sired crop. Weeds, naturally, make use of the same food as the cultivated plants among 'which they grow. Consequent ly, they deprive a crop of a large am ount of nourishment; and they rob the succeeding crop as well. On araJble soil, weeds are trespassers that should be prosecuted with the utmost rigor of the law. Weeds having large leaf sur face draw from the soil and give off through the leaves a large amount of water, and thereby rob the surround ing plants. Many 'botanists consider this 'waste of moisture the most ser ious injury done by the weeds.

PREVENTING EVAPORATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

PREVENTING EVAPORATION. The frequent stirring of tlie surface portion of the soil, as for example by cultivation and harrowing, is an im portant question in lessening the am ount of evaporation and minimising the risks of drought 'by breaking the capillary attraction. This operation is, of course, impracticable once a crop is sown, except in the case of the mangold or turnip or similar crops, when the drills are left sufficiently wide apart to allow of.after-cultivaticn. With an ordinary crop, however, the soil has to remain undisturbed during Lhe whole of the time the ground is occupied by such crops, so that much more will depend upon the thorough ness of the tilth previous to sowing the crop: The principle object to be aimed at in the preparation of the land for such crops is to keep the surface cobbly while the underneath is com pact. This can be obtained by plough ing deeply, and by thoroughly culti vating as early in the season as ■ pos sible, so that the surface need only be ...
