Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 February 1914

REMEDY FOR GLARING LIGHT. A novel device lins recently beep, perfected for overcoming the danger from glare in motor-car headlights. Tin's device consists of a rack, of alum inium plates, placed behind the main jrlass and in front of the lens and burner. These plates.are placed hori. >;ortaily, one above the other, about one-eigth of an inch apart, and have their lower surfaces highly polished, an^. the upper surfaces painted a dead blaok. The effect is that from a dis tance of about loO yards, the full light is seen without any apparent shading, but as the car approaches, the light and become weaker and weaker, until, when a few yards away, nothing can 'ic. seen but a faint grey glow.

Wheat Pickling. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 February 1914

I I To get people on the land and keep ; them there instead of crowding into ; the cities, is the question that is en j gaging the attention of most of our 1 leading politicians. The drudgery of . farm life is the -cause of most of the . rising generation forsaking the calling of farming, and following lines -where | the hours are shorter and, the labor less.. The labor saving devices that ; are coming on the market are raising ' the farmers life to- comparatively a life of ease.. The latest device is The ; McCabe wheat pickling machine, man ' ufactured by Joyce and Co.,. of Mel bourne, with which one man can pickle 30 bushels an hour with, less labor ; than, he could do 5, by the old, style.

PUOCESSES IN THE SOIL. There aro two great processes going - nil continually in the soil, which are known to ho due to the uoLTvfties of bacteria: (a) The romvz\sion of am monia and other compounds containing nitrogen, derived from decaying orga nic matter and nitrogenous fertilisers, into nitrates, the only form in which. <o far as we know, plants ("an utilise tha nitrogen. (I>) The utilisation oi' tree nitrogen of the atmosphere by 1«— guminims plants. Both tliese proces ses are greatly facilitated by the pre sence in that soil of a sufficiency of lime." The application of lime to the soil id one of the oldest methods of treatment known m agriculture. It •.vas apparently employed by the Ro mans 2000 years ago. In various Eu ropean countries it has been praetisid for many years past.

LUCERNE HAY. HOW BEST MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 February 1914

LUCERNE HAY. * HOW BEST MADE. To turn green lucerne into good "keep ing liny is a matter about which farmers frequently ask for guidance. Accord ing to a Bulletin issued by one of the American experiment stations, luoeruo intended for hay should be cut when it begins to bloom. The leaves, which are much richer in protein than the stem.-/, drop and .shatter worse in cut ting if the plants are allowed lo iu» turo too much before harvesting. It has also been observed that when cut at the beginning of the bloom period, about one-tenth in bloom-—the next' crop, under favorablo conditions, starts quickly and makes rapid headway. The most important factor in making good liny is favorable weather. Hay exposed to excessive rains, especially that from leguminous plants, is greatly j injured in quality and feeding value, livery farmer knows that hay is injured by rVn and dew, which cause it to bleach and mould, and take from it the natural aroma and palatibility essen tial in hay of good quali...

WASTE LANDS ON FARMS. -t If farmers generally were as care less with their money as they are with their money's worth, then the amount , of interest would not be worth worrying over. Look at farms of good land that have a selling value of £20 to £30 per acre and it will be found that there are portions that are bringing in but a .fractional part of what should be returned, and are not paying current interest on a capital value of twenty shillings an acre instead of £20. On many im proved and old-fashioned farms there are areas that were at one time sott boggy swamps, but for jears past the swamps have been comparatively dry, yet no effort is made to rid the j surface of the rushes or the big tus socks. In the eyes of the owners the i bottoms. Straw' aiicl hay stacks are j allowed to remain on the ground un , til they turn into manure, when , they are ploughed in.

FERMENTATION IN PAPERMAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 February 1914

fermentation in paper making. Among tlie recent improvements in handling paper»making materials is a process for extracting the starch from cotton rags that are used in making linen papers. Practically all cotton cloth. hns some kind of a filler, and much or this is starch. In clipping* from new cloth there is a considerable1 amount of starch filler. It was the practice formerly to soak the rags in warm water, and then to boil them in m alkali solution. But the effect oi the alkali on starch is very slow, as it muses the starch to swell np, so that •lie solution reaches the inner part of ;ho starch grains only with difficulty. Ualt is added in the proper amount lo convert the starch into a soluble sugar vliich readily dissolves out of the fibre jf the cloth and leaves it free of the lller. The active principle of the i\nlt is the "enzymes" that attack the starch just as tliey do in the brewing orocess, and convert it into a form of sugar that is easily disposed of.

CHAPTER XVI. , , Marion Brooke lived no idle life. It must not be supposed that her mornings were always at her dispo sal, even for so worthy a cause as ' that in which we have seen her work ing side by side with good Dr. Taf ton. In the first place, Mrs. Brooke was far from well, and upon Mar ion's shoulders devolved most of the responsibility of the household. Most of the servants had remained when Mr. Brooke purchased the place from th« tradesman, who had grown weary .v: . of residing in. a neighbourhood where he was looked upon as an interloper. This was due to the animosity felt towards him by the duke, who visit ed upon his head all the wrath lie felt towards his son for selling Marchmere to a stranger.
