FIVE-HORSE SWINGLETREES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

FIVE-HORSE SWINCLETREES. The accompanying sketch' is forwarded to "The Leader" by Mnr. Robert Wolfe, of Kellerberrin, Western Australia, who writes regarding the plan of ivie-horse bars, which has already appeared in these col umns:-"The plan enclosed will probably be recognised by your :readers who use swingletrees as preferable. I do not wish to decry the other set, as I have never used them, . but I do claim for these that the minute a horse pulls more than the others he is putting on leverage against himself, and pulling against two horses. Anyone using this plan will not, I -think, be inclined to adopt any other. To make it plain, the centre horse's bar has a chain hooked on to it, and also hooked to the two centre bars behind. This can be one piece of chain, with a split link. It is better to have two pieces and two split links. The pieces of chain joining the end bar are 14 ,inches in length. The following bolts and S - hooks are required:-Thre eyebolts, :} or J inch, 4- inch...

Poultry breeders have been experiencing a sequence of wonderfully bounteous seasons, and on all sides there is a feeling that poultry culture has won its spurs. Aus tralians hold the world's record for egg production, and it would seem that the outside world is watching the doings of Australian White Leghorns in our annual tests under. Government supervision. Only last week I re, sved a letter from South Africa asking it. addresses of our leading breeders of laying stock, and the past year showed that the Commonwealth has be come an exporter of stud poultry. Many consignments were sent away to other lands, and this is a feather in the caps of our breeders. May I offer: our breeders another prosperous year during 1Q14, and in doing so let me wish one and all a full cup'of health and happiness. To some folk the poultry industry is not regarded as of miebh value or importance, b...

SWARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

SWARMING. . One may expect from the strong cblolies suflicient increase to make it necessary for a swarm to come forth unless precan tions are taken by giving space and ventila tion, or by dividing the colony. Swarm ing is the natural method of reproduction among the bees. It is the old queen and the old bees which leave the hive, seek ing new quarters. When indications' of swarming appear immediate attention is necessary. The hive with ten frames with full sheets of foundation or. frames con taining empty comb should be ready, and as soon as the swarm is out the new hive should be placed in exactly the same posi tion as the old one, which may be set a few feet to. the side. The swarm made up of the old bees advances from the hive, followed by the queen. After flying about for a short time they cluster "on some near by object. It may be a tree, a bush, a post or a building. Here the swarm re mains for an indefinite length of time, during which scouts are supposed to be seeking a sui...

RIPE GRAPES FOR RAISIN MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

RIPE CRAPES FOR RAISIN MAKING. The California Associated Raisin Com pany warns growers who have contracted their grapes to the association to let them get ripe before picking. Good raisins can not be made from sour grapes, and the as sociation has evidently grasped the first principle of co-operation, which is that the .main profit in co-operation in marketing is in the possibilities which it affords for assuring to customers the best of products honestly graded and packed. The circular is as follows:- "To the Raisin Growers.:--In past years there has generally *been a tendency to pick your grapes too early for the purpose of rhaking early delivery, or in any event to make your.delivery within the time sti pulated in your contract with various 1:ackers. "There being no such condition imposed upon you under the contract with this corporation, we earnestly urge upon you not to pick any of your grapes until such time as they are fully ripe.
