Experiments With Manures in Canada. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 5 October 1901

Experiments "With Manures in Canada. The recently published annual reports of the Canadian Experimental Farms contain a great amount ,o£ information concerning the use of different fertilisers for cereals. The following extract frem the reports should prove instructive to Australian farmers, notwithstanding the different climatic conditions obtaining in Canada. At the Ottawa Farm thes,e experiments have been carried on for 12 years, the land used being a sandy loam more or less mixed with clay, which was originally coyerpd Tfith heavy timber. As a Result of these trials it has been shown that farmyard mannre {mixed horse aud pow manure) can be most economically used in the fresh or unrotted condition. Ton for ton its producing power appears equal to rotted manure, which loses during the rotting about 60 per cent, of its weight. At the time the ex periments were started it was the general opinion that finely-ground untreated rock phosphate was a valu able fertiliser, but 10 years' ex...

OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 5 October 1901

OURSELVES. We take this opportunity of explain ing, in a few words, the raison d'etre of the Herald. Not that such au explanation is entirely necessary, but journalistic traditions and the public taste demand it. The great and in creasing importance of these districts, and their obvious need of Press repre sentation in consequence, should be apparent enough to the residents to, in their minds, justify our existence. As a public print we are here, then, to throw what weight we might have on the side of the people we hare come amongst in whatever fights they might have to undertake, to keep a watchful eye upon their require ments; to awaken a wider circle of interest in their industries; and, at the same time, to provide them a weekly epitome of local, interstate and ^ general news. That we can do good, provided a reasonable amount of support be accorded us, is beyond doubt. We are fully seized of the value of these districts from agricul tural and fruit-growing standpoints; but the r...

WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 5 October 1901

WISE AND OTHERWISE. The Eatanning Kailway Station building cannot be classed with others built by pri vate enterprise in the town. Its general appearance in front takes one's memory back to the old digging days and wayside inns, whilst the back, or, more correctly speaking, the side facing Austral Terrace, has more the appearance of a cheap lodging-house than a Government building. Until very recently the building also did duty as a residence for the station-master, and how he survived the ordeal is a mystery. The very primitive method of running along the line with a flag to signal an incoming train is also resorted to in the absence of a properly equipped signall ing apparatus. The accommodation for the loading and unloading of heavy goods is also of the sparest. The member for York, during a discussion in the House last week on a motion by the member for Kalgoorlie " that the next con tract let for the supply of police uniforms and other Government uniforms be carried out by unio...

MARRACOONDA. (S'rojt Ottr Correspondent.) September 9. On tbe 2nd inst., a meeting was held to dis cuss the question of procuring a piece of land suitable for recreation purposes.
