OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915

OF RURAL INTEREST < (By "Ruaticus.") According to all experience we are due for a bounteous season following upon the lean year,just past. High hopes are entertained by the heads of tlio Agricultural Department. They are convinced that the expectation of Miii Ministry that sufficient will be sown to yield 50,000,000 bushels is rea sonable. Dr. Cameron, the Director of Agriculture, says, that an announce ment made by Mr. T. Young, of Young Bros., at Horsham, that Wimmera farm ers would put in double the customary acreage was comforting, especially as it was no chance remark. News from other districts indicated that the pros pect of good prices-5/- a bushel at least-was inducing other farmers to prepare larger areas than ordinarily. Both Mr. Hutchinson, the Minister for Agriculture, and the Director agree that the outlook is promising for next sea son, and they are''sanguine of a record harvest. Mr. Hutchinson states that the Bailway Department for the past three years has ...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915

MELBOURNE LETTER (Prom our Special Correspondent.) There 'arc many deserving cases among the unemployed, but their cause is not being made any stronger by the h ysterical crowd who are espous ing it and incidentally getting -a lot of the limelight tha't is their de light. The, metropolitan evening newspaper is the worst offender in this respect. Its campaign in the in terests of those suffering from the stress of the time is spoiled by maw kish sentiment and ill-judged "tactics. The committee who hav0 undertaken to collect public subscriptions for relief funds and disburse tho money have a not-too-pleasant task. Strikes at this juncture, and the general attitude of the workers who get the ear of tho' public are not calculated to loosen np the hold upon the'money on the- part of those who have something to spare. A letter published iu the press the other day gives expression to feeling in the matter which it cannot be denied is very general. The writer says:-The sole reason for the u...

COMMON SENSE IN FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915

COMMON SENSE IN FARMING. The land is like a bank. If you do not put money into it, you cannot draw any out, except as an overdraft, and an overdraft has to be met. If the overdraft has to be met from sources other than the farm, then there is something ?wrong -with the farming. The aim of a good farmer is to work his land in such a way as to increase the productiveness of his crops, what ever thay may be, to the greatest ex tent. _ . The question is: How is this best done? And the three most important factors are:-By tho careful selection of -seed; by good preparation of the soil; and by the liberal use of suitable manures. If the seed put into the soil is pure, with good germinating power, the plant starts 011 its career under favorable auspices. Other conditions beiDg equal, the crop grown with_ the best seed will produce the best yield; it is as hopeless to expect a satisfac tory crop from faulty seed as it is to get good animals from inferior stock. Further, the variety of seed ...

"SCATTER PLENTY O'ER A SMILING LAND." [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915

"SCATTER PLENTY O'ER A SMIL ING LAND." During the last few mouths there has been much talk of introducing radical land reforms, which, in the ex uberant language of prominent poli ticians, will '"scatter plenty o'er a smiling land," and such optimism calculated optimism may we say-cer tainly raises a smile on the face of practical men who know that a "get rich quick'' policy is not likely in agriculture to lead to the anticipated results. Land reforms of the right kind are not to be deprecated, but farmers may well say '' save us from our friends,'; if so-called reforms are to be trans lated into an Act without being first subjected to careful consideration. By the force of natural laws, more powerful than legislation, agriculture has got out of the deep rut of depres sion, in which it stuck for so long, and is advancing gradually and surely to greater prosperity. The era of cheap food, sold below the cost of production in this country, has passed away, not to return, because the po...

PROFIT AND LOSS IN THE APIARY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915

PROFIT AND LOSS IN THE APIABY. Two factors, carefulness and care lessness, make up the greater part of the profit or loss in beekeeping. In many of the suggestions which follow, one or the other of these factors will be apparent. Study your business and the mands of your locality. Success in beekeeping, as in any other business, demands that much at tention bo given to details. Equalising brood or stores in foul brood localities invites the spread oi disease. Use movable frames, and see that' they are movable and not cross-combed. It pays to know the conditions ex": isting in the colonies from week to week. Bait combs get the bees started early in the sections, and so they store more honey. v -ct Pads last only a short time. worth while to bother with them. Beal merit counts in the ioug ru.-i. Try to have hives and equipment conform to the standard in size. Their market value is much higher. An attractive package adds much to the market value of a. ,'product. A reputation of selling...

SEAWEED AS A MANURE FOR POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915

SEAWEED AS A MANURE FOR POTATOES. Fresh seaweed coutains about th same quantity of nitrogen as well rotted farmyard manure, and consider ably more potash, while, on the other hand, its contents in phosphate are less. According to a leaflet issued by the Irish Department 'of Agriculture, jit can be used with advantage for every crop on the farm or garden to which farmyard manure is applied, and, ow ing to tlic largo quantity of available potash it contains, is especially suit able for growing potatoes-although it has been observed that when potatoes that have been grown with large quan tities of seaweed are dug up in the green state, the tubers are inclined to be more waxy than those grown with farmyard manure. This drawback is not quite so apparent when the tubers are left on the ground until fully ma tured, or when superphosphate has been used, together with the seaweed, or when it has been plou'glied into the land during the previous autumn or winter. Therefore, an effort should b...

SUGGESTIONS FOR THE APPLICATION OF ARTIFICIAL MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915

SUGGESTIONS FOR THE APPLI CATION OF ARTIFICIAL MANURES. Tho basis oi' all systems of manur ing should bo farmyard manure; arti ficial manures should be employed, to supplement it by furnishing to tho crops the stimulus of more active and readily available plant foods. Their JBe enables tho farmer to reserve his supply of farmyard manure for the crops which especially benefit by the application of the bulky organic mate rial. The following suggestions aro in tended to be merely suggestions, and to serve as a rough guide to those who may bo in doubt as to what fertiliser or mixture of fertilisers can be ap plied with the greatest prospect of good results. Farmers who have been in tho habit of adopting a system of manuring and are satisfied with tho results obtained, had better abide by tho practice which their experience has proved suitable to their soil, al though it may be well to try a change on a small portion of their field for tho sake of comparison. Also, the re commendations a...

KEEPING CREAM COOL. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915

KEEPING CREAM COOL Most dairy farmers would deliver a better grade of cream if they had a suitable place for keeping it until it is delivered. No one should attempt to keep the cream in a cellar or in a large tank of water whore the daily pumping is not sufficient to keep it cool. If a suitable place cannot be built in a well-constructed milk house, tho following arrangement will be found to do faily well: Make a small water-tight box of two inch material, and of sufficient size to hold all the cream cans necessary in handling tho cream. This box should have a tight-fitting cover, and be di vided into sections by means of rods which will prevent single cans upset ting when left alone in tho tank. The best place for this tank is in the milk house. It may be placed between tho woll and the stock-watering tank, and in that case another box or small house should be built over it for protection. All the water pumped for the stock should flow through this tank, tho in let discharging near...

THE HAWTHORN HEDGE AS A FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915

THE HAWTHORN HEDGE AS A FENCE. Taking into account how valuable a hawthorn hedge is for stock shelter in districts where tho climatic conditions are not too dry to prevent its proper ; development, the "Live Stock Journal" (England) has received a communica tion from a generally recognised prac tical authority on the subject, who says: "There seemsj however, to be a lack of general information on the subject, and consequently customs are followed which in many cases are absoluetly wrong, both in theory and practice. This is not so marked in pastoral dis tricts, but where mixed farming is pur sued, the fences axe often so badly grown, or so seriously ruined by cut ting that when the land is in pasture, they are practically useless. In for mer days, before the draining of land became a general practice, hedges were in many parts planted on banks made by the soil dug out to form ditches, but today, it is a common practice in localities where mixed farming is pur sued to plant on the fl...

BEEKEEPING FOR WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915

BEEKEEPING FOR WOMEN. j A woman writes: "Now beekeeping gives the women of the farm home a reason for being out of doors, and at just the season when the world is most beautiful. Moreover, the apiary is al ways in a pleasant place. One thing that holds my attention is that, how ever unattractive the surroundings of the farmhouse, the bees have a pleas ant corner in the orchard or in some other partly sunny spot. Whether they know it or not the women of the farm home who carc for the bees get some good air and some good healthy out door labor, and meanwhile they arc not troubled with insomnia. How many a country wife has wondered and reJ sented during her sleepless hours the sound and perfect sleep of her husband, when the only reason for this differ ence lay in the fact that his work was in the open air and hers in the stuffy house. "Then there is another and more fundamental reason for beekeeping as a woman's interest. 1 would prescribe as a means for preserving sanity and sound ne...
