POLITICAL POINTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 2 May 1913
POLITICAL POINTERS. (By "Elcctor.") Who is il that is governing New South Wales to-day? It is ccrtainly not Jim M'Gowen anil his bright bovs. Griffith, Car miehacl anil Trcflc. They have dropped mil of niiblic notice, ami the fact that they are Ministers is looked upon as a huge joke. Unfortunately it is a very exp n sivc juke for the country for their pet policy of "boom and bust." Uicy sec now clearly that il is all up with them and they are too dishcarteiud to at tempt to stem the defeat which is staring them in the facc. It is a case of let's cat, drink and be merry, for to-morrow wc die. Not so very long ago, they bad high hopes that they were ging to have a permanent hold of office. They thought that by scattering money broadcast through the electorates, and starting socialistic enterprises that they would increase th: number of their supporters. It is a proof of their appaling ig norance that they never realised that such reckless financing could only have one'ending, and tha...

FARMING ON SHABES. ' Thore is in vogue in Outario a sys tem of lund tenure, which'iB practically unknown in England, that of "renting on a share basis.

THE ORCHARD. PRUNE EARLY. And Clear the Way for Spraving. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 9 May 1913
THE ORCHARD. PRUNE EARLY. ' And Clear the Wav for Soravine. Preparations for pruning should bo made so that the work can bo dono early in the winter. Timo was when pruning could bo safely left till,Jate in the winter, but thoso were days when spraying was a mucli less important lixture in the orchard year than numer ous pests have lately mado it. Delay in pruning now means delay also in spraying, with the result :that the weaker and less efiicient summer strength may have to be used to avoid damaging the tender buds. It is wise therefore to get all- cul tivation and other work forward so that pruning may be dono as early us possible in the season. Spraying'may then be more effectively done with' less trouble and with the full winter strength. ' In the ''Agricultural Gazette?' for May appears an article on spraying that orehardists will find profit in studying, and it is accompanied by a table which sots out in very clear and handy form the sprays that should be" used for different p...

"If the litter is farrowed in August, as suggested, there is time for another litter to be'reared and weaned bofore winter. It is a mistake to permit tho boar to roam among the breeding sows, for it tends to irfitate him auu to produce smalL litters. The sow should be driven into the boar's pen. Maturo- Boars.

MONEY-MAKING STOCK. What the Pig Wastes. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 9 May 1913
MONEY-MAKING STOCK. What tho Pip Wastes. The pig is the most oconomical of nil animals. It has been found in America that of what a horse cats 52 per cent, goes to waste; - 44 per cent, of the food consumed by cattle is similarly lost, and 32 per cent, of ull that aheop take into their stomachs. But only 12 per ceut. of what a pig cats is wasted. Of the food eaten by a pig 52 per cent, goes to make growth, while a sheep utilises only 25 per cent, of its sus; tenance for growing, which, of course, means the production of meat. ♦ These figures arc obtained from recent experiments made • by govern ment experts, who find, as a result, of their study, that the pig has what they call an ''economic superiority'' oven' over poultry, which rmeans that it pro duces more meat in proportion to-its weight, and the animal weighs more in proportion to tho amount of food it consumes. It was found that 84 per cent, of tho carcase of a pig is used as' meat; 75 per cent, of a bullock; and 54 per cent,...
