MIXING MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

MIXING MANURES." In mixing manures, unless care and judgment are exercised, much loss will result. If sulphate of ammonia- enters into a mixture, no manure containing lime should he put with it, as the am monia is thereby volatilised and lost. It is quite safe to mix it with super., guano, bonedust, kainit, and sulghate or muriate of potash, and it may be added to stable manure if an extra amount of nitrogen is desired. On no account must slag or lime come in di rect contact with it. These remarks apply equally to dried blood, blood and bone, or any organic nitrogenous ma nures. On the other hand, nitrate of soda will mix with slag or lime. If it is desired to use sulphate of ammonia or blood and bone where slag is used as the phosphatic manure, the latter should be some three or four weeks before the nitrogenous manure, and harrowed in. On the other hand, al though nitrate of soda will mix with slag, it is not advisable to sow them together, as the nitrogen is so extreme ly soluble...

SEED MAIZE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

SEED MAIZE. It is important- that only such ears be selected. as have acquired the habit of ripening on time. Also, care should be taken not to neglect seed ears from plants or varieties will yield less corn than those which use the entire sea son. However, the intelligent selec tion of seed corn in the field as ma turity approaches, is helpful if it takes into consideration the immedate envi ronment, particularly the stand of plants. A plant growing in a hill with two other plants should be rated much higher for having produced an ear of a given weight than a plant growing in a hill by itself, soil conditions being the same. In other words, the select-on of seed corn should be made in the field where the growing plants may be con sidered in connection with their envir onment, and plants growing under less' . than normal stand or extra normal con ditions of any sort should, thereby, be disqualified, save in exceptional cases. A larger number of ears than are need ed should be select...

The Daily "Rest Cure." [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

The Daily " Rest Cure." No one can be in any doubts of the fact that " nervous break downs " are alarmingly on the in crease. Among housewives the in crease is due to the refusal of so many women to take a little much needed rest in the early^ afternoon. To keep-the mind " at attention '1 from morning till night .without a single break is bound in time to tell upon even the strongest constitu tion. Men's work, however ardu- . ous, usually permits of one. or two complete breaks during the day and lasting long enough to give the ne cessary recreation." .But the housewife's work is truly never done, unless she steadily refuses to go on doing it, and so gain short intervals of freedom from domestic worry and responsibility. In busy homes the daily rest cure is really indispensable. And the rest should be taken lying down, not in a chair, especially not in a rocking chair. Keep the arms straight down along the sides, keep the heels together ; ' close the eyes and press the lips together ...
