CONSIDERATE LADY MOTORISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 September 1907

CONSIDERATE LABT MOTOR ISTS. To be fair it must be confessed that as a rule women motorist drive with more consideration than men. They are apt to be more tolerant of the feeling of other -users of the road, and a woman's natural tenderness of heart makes her more careful when it comes to the frightening of old women, chil dren, dogs, and chickens.— 'Car.'

Sir Oliver Lodge remarked that an -n- I teresting discovery by Mr Marconi was that sunlight Interfered with the trans ference of long-distance wireless mes sages It Is, Indeed, one of the most remarkable, things about the Hertzian ether waves, that while foes, clouds and mists have no effect in the direction of absorbing them, they are eo peculiarly susceptible to sunshine that on a bright sunny day the distance to which a mes sage can be sent Is less by more than one half the distance possible at nlgbt At the Marconi stations in Newfound land enfl' Cornwall, in fact the power -required during the day time is some lour times that necessary during the hours of darkness, and, as far as pos sible, ibng-dlstatice ' message* are .re served for transmission sifter sunset

Tbe beehive of to-day is certainly very prosaic In appearance.

A MODERN PIG HOUSE. The accompanying sketch and plan Show a house designed for brood sows and pigs. Tbe building (writes E. D. Whlttaker in 'American Agriculturist') has been used for a number of years, and was designed and built according to my own ideas. After a good trial I would not change It, if I were building another for ihe same amount of money. The building is 20 x 60 feet in dimen sions, constructed on hedge posts set in the ground, with a 2-Inch plank floor. The open yards for the sows arts on the south side, while larger boar yards are to the north. Tbe building Is supplied with a large number of windows, and water comes from on elevated tank situated at some distance. This building proves convenient and worm In the winter and is easy to manage junder all circum stances. Plain planking has been used throughput tbe roof and sides.

Continued Action of Farmyard Manure. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 September 1907

Continued Action of Farmyard jUjuivre. The reason for the continued action of farm-yard ojanure on crops long after Its application should be made apparent by a study of Its analysts, which at once shows It to be a complete manure. The potash is mostly available, whilst the larger portion of the nitrogen compounds . and phosphates is not directly available. . and woula only become so slowly through changes brought about during decomposition. So that in the first year's application the crop would take up all that was in a suitable form; thesupply 1 In the following years would depend upon the rate at which this decomposi tion takes place and .the amount of ex ! haUEtion the manure had previously un Tdergone.

Building up the Soil. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 September 1907

Snildinc up .tbe ~S6ilt Properly handled, stable manure is by all means the best remedy tor poverty of the soil. Very few farmers handle manure so as to get even es much as half the possible value from it. Tbflre Is probably no greater waste in the world than Id connection with the- handling of manure by the farmer. Five-eighths /of the plant food In manure Is found In the liquid part of It. This Is usually all lost. Not only Is this the case, but the solids . , ..- are pilea beside the bam, frequently ^ under the eaves, where rains wash away much of their value. Fermentation In these manure plies also sets free much of the nitrogen to escape Into the air. The quickest way to build up a worn out soil when farm-yard manure is not plentiful Is to give it a course of green manure; then gTOW forage crops to feed the stock with, and return all the man ure thus produced to the land. Dairy farming permits such a system to be practiced.' No other type of farming builds up land so rapidly.
