VALUE OF ASHES. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911

VALUE OP A SITES. . Ashes, particularly hardwood ashes, is a valuable fertiliser, and would no doubt prove'beneficial to wheat or. rye, especially on a sandy or gravelly soil. Ashes contain a good percentage' of ?available potash and also about 30 per cent, of lime, both of whicli will be found beneficial to the average soil. By .combining ashes with bone meal or acid phosphate better results, would be: pro duced, as most of our soils need addi tions of phosphoric acid for best results .with grain crops. Ashes should not, . however,be; mixed with stable manure or other. nitrogenous: fertilizers before ap plying to the soil, os the lime in the ashes-will tend to liberate the nitrogen in the manure in the form of ammonia gas and a considerable loss of, valuable plant food will results / ' ' '"2

MOTOR TRACTION. USE ON THE FARM. AN INTERESTING PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911

MOTOR TRACTION USE ON THE FARM, AN INTERESTING PAPER. In a paper read at a conference of farmers"' in Adelaide, Mr W. Hunt writes:- ' It is over 30 years since the traction engine became a success, and for a number of years It was used for haul ing heavy farm machinery from one job to another, and for hauling, in the roads. Of late years the tractor has been greatly improved in construction and efficiency, and has taken the place of both men and animals. It is now ex tensively employed in-America, not only for breaking the land, but- for discing, seeding, cutting grain, etc. The first traction engines used for plough ing were the ordinary steam threshing engine, built primarily for belt; service, arid their use involved .numerous ex- , pensive ljreakages' and many discour agements. The tractor of the present day, is made . more substantially, and steel or semi-steel gearing has been' substituted for cast iron. The service re quired of it is so severe that no' en gine can be successf...

PAINTED "WIFE'S FACE. OIJERK OBJECTS TO COSMETICS. I A good-looking, fashionably-dressed '-young woman, named Ramsbottom, told the Blackburn magistrates on Tuesday (says "Lloyd's News" of October 2) that { her husband, a clerk,v whom she accused I of assault and desertion, was intolerably jealous. On one occasion he asked her it' she painted her face,, and when she replied "No," he blacked hpr face with boot polish. Some time afterwards he painted her face and neck with, 'green enamel, and then,spent two and: a half, hours removing it with petrol. In cross-examination, Mrs Ramsbottom admitted she had put carmine and powder - on her cheeks. Amid great laughter she said her husband found the box and emptied it into his boots. . Mr Carter (defendant's solicitcy): Was he coloring his feet? (Laughter). A magistrate suggested it was not mortal sin to powder. Ramsbottom made counter-charges against his wife. He caught her roug ing her cheeks, and, saying, "Let's- see how green, will go wit...

POULTRY. PLUMAGE OF FOWLS. DIFFERENT DEVELOPMENTS. AN INTERESTING TREATISE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911

PpMiTp, ^ -? I PLUMAGE OF FOWIJS. DIFFERENT DEVELOPMENTS. .AN INTERESTING TREATISE. The development..of the plumage of our domestic fowls is not a subject that lias engaged much attention from poul try-raisers, outside of the experts and fanciers, in this country. In America, however, where the industry is raised to a science, and where the agricultural colleges make a specialty of issuing in struction in all that appertains to poul try husbandry, an elaborate treatise has just been Issued regarding the develop ment and sequence of plumage, and the relation between moulting and egg pro duction. While the first body-covering of a chick may ur may not be called-plum age, it is shed and replaced.as If it were plumage. The method of "moulting, however, is peculiar to the downy coat. The baby chick, when it comes from the shell, has pin feathers for flights; in two or three days it develops pin fea thers that will become main tail fea thers. The down grows longer, and, on certain areas o...

Arrivals in N.S.W. Last Year. All Increase of 10,000. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911

1 Arrivals in N.S.W. Last Year. All Increase of 10,000. The immigration figures for New South Wales are now assuming healthy propor tions; and towards- the end of the coming month the Mamari, a steamer under special charter to the Government, will land 500 assisted passengers in Sydney. These will comprise agriculturists and other desirable settlers, all of whom have undergone a stiff process of selection at the hands of the Agent-General. The demand on tlio space o£ the various steamship lines running to Australia from London continues particularly keen. This has been the case for several months past, and it is estimated that the number of unassisted passengers of the type the country needs will show a steady increase on that of 1909 when the figures becomo available. In 1909 the number of oversea immi grants was 17,030, of whom 4308 wero assisted. The number of gross arrivals from oversea in that year was 51,025. The figures for 1910 are not yet avail able, but it is estimated tha...

BEEKEEPER. HANDLING BEES. SOME USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911

BEEKEEPER. HANDLING BEES. SOME USEFUL HINTS. Any person (states an expert ©need bee-keeper) with fairly steady nerves and some paitience and courage can easily learn to control and manipu late bees. There are,-It Is true, a few. exceptional individuals wTiose systems are particularly susceptible to the pois on injected by the bee, so much so that serious effects follow a sting. Such cases are, however, very rare. In moat instances where care is not taken to avoid all stings the system eventually becomes accustomed to®the poison, so that beyond momentary pain a gt'ing causes no inconvenience. To a- certain extent the belief exists that bees have, without apparent cause, a violent dis like for some people, while others with out any effort, are received into their favor. The latter part of this propo sition has a better foundation than the first part, for it is the actions, rather than any peculiarity of the individual himself, that angers the bees. Bees prefer not to be disturbed; hen...

COCKEREL PENS. HANDY PATTERNS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911

COCKEREL PENS. HANDY PATTERNS. Cockerel pens of one type or another are indispensable to the exhibitor, as unless birds required tor show purposes are treated very carefully, they have but little chance of success. All birds that ate being prepared for exhibition must be kept apart from the remainder, and be housed in suitable places so that they are fully protected from wind and rain, and shaded from the sun, or perfect plumage cannot be secured or maintained. A number of exhibition pullets or hens can, of course, be housed j together in the same pen,, but in the case of the male birds each must have a pen to itself,' as they have a habit of quarrelling and fighting when together, and might ruin each other for show purposes in a very short time. Fig. 1.-Single Cockerel Pen (Blind Up). The majority of poultry appliance manufacturers now make pens of vari ous designs suitable for housing cock erels, some being arranged singly and others in ranges of two, three, and four.

THE "NEW PROTECTION" IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911

THE "NEW PROTECTION'' IN AXJS ' TBAIiIA. Mr. T. Owen Jacobson, Chairman of tho Newton Mill Paper Company, Ilyde, Lan cashire, was interviewed in Johannesburg by a representative of the "Transvaal Loader" (Juno 20th). Mr. Jacobson had just spent some months in tho Australian Commonwealth. Asked what he thought of the new Protection in that country, he . said lie considered it extremely doubtful if it were possible to do what the political theorists wanted. It had to be remem bered that in Australia every working man was a political theorist, and enter tained views which were mostly unguided by experience and almost totally lacking in that breadth of view which desired to consider other sides of - debatable cjues- . tions. "The main idea of the New Pro tection," lie said, "is that if a manufac turer is to get Protection as regards the over-sea competitor he shall not only pay his workmen a fair rate of wages, but he shall not overcharge the public. The authorities propose that the Gov...
