MILKING CAPACITY. ITS TRANSMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 28 February 1914
MILKING CAPACITY. ITS TRANSMISSION. Following upon a notable paper by Dr. James Wilson, of the Royal Col lege of Science, Dublin, upon the way in which colour is inherited among Shorthorns, the same authorityl now deals with the way in which milk yield is inherited. That is, milk from which a larger or smaller quantity of butter can be produced. "Most of our cattle yield milk which contains on the average about 3.7 per cent. of butter-fat; but Jer seys yield milk containing on the average about 5 per cent. There are many individual fluctuations in both breeds, but these figures are about the average. In Ireland, as in other parts of Britain. there are many Jer sey-Shorthorn crosses. During the last two or three years we have been able to get the milk of a number of these analysed, and it is found to contain about 4.2 or 4.3 per cent. of butter-fat on the average. Individual fluctuations have been found as low as 3.9 per cent. and as high as 4.7, but the average is as. stated. "This ...
USE OF FREE NITROGEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 28 February 1914
USE OF FREE NITROGEN. Some of the European countries are particularly interested in the manufacture of suIphate of ammonia. Sulphate of ammonia contains, on the average, about 20 per cent. ni trogen, and is quits frequently a very efficient fertiliser. A new plant for the manufacture of this highly nitrogenous fertiliser has just been, organised in Norway with a capital stock of over two and one-half mil lion dollars. It aims to turn out an nually 40,000 tons of sulphate. To do so it will be able to use enormous quantities of the free nitrogen of the air. The farmer who grows lucerne, clover, cowpeas, and other legumes is every year adding value to the farm and to the. products of the farm, for legumes are transformers of free nitrogen just as the factory is. While sulphate of ammonia Will be used by those in intensive farming operations, it will be many years be fore the average American farmer will need to rely for his nitrogen up on the manufactured forms--that is, of course, if ...

The rest of the family affect not to nottce anything unusual, and continue their work, or their reading. The young rian turns aside and talks to the tather ox mother o; some very ordinary sub ject, keeping his eyes eagerly fixed on the girl's face while he is conversing. if she accepts his oifer, she takes up the cake ,and eats it.

Original Poetry. DISAPPOINTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 March 1914
Original Poetry. DISAPPOINTMENT. I dreamed a dream the;other night, A dream that gave me quite a fi ight, For I thought that I had lost my way, Or was in some strange new town that day. Why, what means this? (thought I), this throng? There must be something very wrong; For here are men in golfing rig, And caddies too, both small and big, And special boats and trains put on, Although 'tis June, and ' the season' gone. This can't }e the Queenscliff * used to know, Where the winter months were so drear and slow. ' Yes it is,' said a voice that had read my thoughts; ' We possess something more now than tennis courts; We've got golf links, sure, that we're proud, to own, Sorrento's not in it; we've ".done her brown." Our links are far better, and then, what is more, They're so easy to get to, that's where we score. - Have you booked up you're rooml you'll not get a lied. The hotels and all houses are. full,' this voice said. I awoke with a start, but only to fýd. 'Twas a dream, and tliat...
