How Animals Bear Pain. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 24 January 1914

How Animals Bear Pain. One of the most pathetic things is tho manner in which the animal kingdom endures suffering. Take horses, for in stance, in battle. After the first shock of a wound they, make no sound. They bear the pain with a mute, -wondering endurance, and if at night you hear a wild groan from the battle-field it comes from their loneliness. The dog will carry a broken leg for days wistiully, but uncomplainingly. The cat, stricken with "stick or stone, or caught in some trap from -which it knows its way to freedom, crawls to some secret place and bears in silence pain which we could not endure. Sheep and cattle meet tho thrust of the butcher's knife -without a sound, and even common poultry endure in tense agony without complaint. The dove, shot unto death, flies to some far-olf bough, and as it dies tho silence is unbroken save for tho patter 011 tho leaves of its own life-ulood. The wounded deer speeds to some thick brake, and in pitiful submission waits for death. , Th...

CO-OPERATION AMONG FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 24 January 1914

CO-OPERATION AMONG FARMERS. There is every reason why co-opera tion should-be Tostcicd by farmers, who have much to'gain by the. movement. To do away with trusts, it is necessary to substitute something else in their place; and the only solution of tho whole problem- is the complete system of co-operation in which 1 lie profit rc verts^to those who ereato them. For example, in a complete co-operation of the farmers it would not matter •whether they received the full market vnluo for wheat or not; because if there were a profit made out of them of, say, £100,000, that profit would be divided among those people out of whom the profit has been made. The same could be said regarding manufac turers—the co-operation could not only be among the purchasers, hut among the men who are working the factory, and the profit could be divided first among the purchasers on the amount they had purchased; and, .secondly, among the person* whoso labor contri buted towards tho manufacture oT the article...

SOIL FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 24 January 1914

SOIL FERTILITY. The whole problem of the soil fer tility is inextricably woven with bac terial- fermentation. From the origin of the soil through lis use .by plants, and the subsequent destruction of their original condition of the products form ed, wo find nearly every stop accom panied by bacterial action. The con tinual fertility of the soil is thus asso ciated with bacterial life, in the fu ture the problem of the proper treat ment of the .soil for the use of agri culture will be, in a veiy large do- j gree, a problem of the proper control j of bacteiia. Agriculturists must learn I to stiiuulutc the bacterial actions which are advantageous, and check those which are. disadvantageous, ,'f they would _ensure the continual soil for-, tility. Perfect cultivation is one of the best means of encouraging the right kind of bacteria, moisture and warmth being the most essential items in en couraging this increase, therefore, to cultivate the land thoroughly means to increase soil fertili...

VALUE OF THE EARTHWORM. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 24 January 1914

VALUE OF THE EARTHWORM, j The earthworm is to some extent an indication of the nature of tho soil. Where tho land is full of heart tho worms present a full-grown and fleshy appearance; whore the soil is poor, they 'are stnnll; thin and attenuated, and sometimes of a pale and greenish color. As a rule, when the woiva comes to the surface it keeps its tail within the narrow opening of its bur row, so that, possessing a keen sense of hearing, it can retract its body with the greater ease. The mould left mi the form of easts on the surface of the land has inanurial value, although it may spoil the appearance of an other wise well-kept lawn.

IMPORTANCE OF POTASH. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 24 January 1914

IMPORTANCE OF POTASH. Mr. A. D. Hall, in his invaluable work pn "Manures and Fertilisers," says:—"There is abundant evidence to show that potasli makes the plant more resistant to the attacks of tlio fungoid diseases." He also places particular emphasis on the influence of potash salts in the production of cariio-liy drates. Ho says"Further inquiry Koes to show tliat in some way potash is an essential part of the mechanism of the process of assimilation; when it is deficient the manufacture of carbo hydrates, liko starch, sugar, and cellu lose, is greatly reduced, and in practice it is "the crops, rich in earboliydrato • which aro most dependent upon full supply of potash." 'When it is remember ed that potatoes, contain 12 to 20 per cent, of starch, the importance of tlio above quotations is seen. To sum up, practical experience in all the old po tato-growing countries shows that po tash is the important constituent of po tato manure, and science,explains the! apparent reason. Tlio ...

RATIONS FOR FARM HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 24 January 1914

RATIONS FOR FARM HORSES. The horse lnis a much. smaller stom ach than the cow, anl this stomncli acts must efficiently when about two-thirds full. Probably tho best method of feed ing horses is. to supply regular meals at fairly short intervals. These should consist of a generous proportion of concentrated foods, of -which the most suitable are oats, maize, peas,- and beans; and also a certain amount of chaffed hay or good oat straw. It must fio remembered that the horse lias a much more delicate digestives system than any other class of farm ani mal ; therefore there seems some good reason for bestowing just as much, if not more, care on tho methods of feed ing tho animal as is usually displayed in the feeding of, say, a dairy cow. lie gularity in feeding; and general man agement are two important essentials in tho enre of the team. Not only must tho meals be supplied nt regular inter vals, but tho quantities of food should bo constant as far as possiblo, and suf ficient for 0110 m...

MILITARY METHODS STORM IN THE REICHSTAG. In the course of the stormiest sit ting the Helrhstag has experienced for over fifteen years (says the Berlin correspondent of the "Dally Express," December 51), Germany's expectations that the military outrage at Zabern would he followed by the punishment of the officers apparently responsible for the riot r»nd ridiculous Incidents which followed have been bitterly dis appointed. That Gorman officers cannot err was practically asserted by the Chancel .or, Dr. von Uethinann-llollwcg, and Gene ral" von Falkcnhayn, the Prussian war Minister, after representatives of the Algatlnn Progressive and Socialist parties had eomplalncd bitterly about the violence at SSabern and called on the" Government to take drastic action against Lieutenant von Foerstner an;l Colonel von neuter. The Chnncr Uor's defence of the mili tary excesses was probably the weakest speech he has delivered in tho Reich stag since ho has been In oMlce. As a civilian official he w...

The State and the Parmer. HANDLING OF WHEAT. Most people realise in a general way that to at least three Stales, Vietorisi, New South Wales, and .South Australia wheat growing is a vitally important matter. Comparatively few, however, have gone at all earefully into the figures or know how much the cost of marketing efler:ts. and must efleet. the area under cultivation.
