RENOVATING PASPALUM. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914

RENOVATING PASPALUM. As illustrating the wonderful recu perative powers of paspalum, a pad dock which had been in paspalum •for thirteen or fourteen years was ploughed up. This was necessitated by constant cutting for seed and heavy grazing having weakened the sward. The experience in question was that of a settler in the Ooramba district, New South Wales Some time ago a paddock of twelve acres was ploughed up with the object oi utilising it for the growing of fodder crops for the dairy herd. Being dry at the time the work was heavy, and the ploug-hing necessarily shallow. About the middle of December maize was sown. Dry conditions continuing produced indifferent germination. But with the storms of January the pas palum made a move, the young growth showing up between the sods as if it had been planted. The maize was about 4 to 5 feet high, but ^hc paddock was one waving field of pas palum fence high, and in full seed. Th? response was simply wonderful. An interesting feature of the...

THE FARM. THE ABUSE OF ARTIFICIAL MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914

c>pq*—|i'i fliMW hWfc THE FARM. THE ABUSE OP ARTIFICIAL MANURE. In a lecture recently delivered .be fore the Mayfield Farmers' Club, Mr. G. A. Cowie, M.A., B.Sc., in describ ing certain abuses of artificial fertili sers, pointed out as one of the most flagrant the far too common system of one-sided or incomplete manuring. Many farmers were prone to use only one sort of manure and neglect altogether the- other fertilising in gredients which may be as important or even more important, for the crop or soil in question. As practical instances of the above error, . the lecturer quoted the fre quent use alone of nitrate of soda, which at first might produce a luxu riant growth, but will afterwards refuse to perform its proper function owing to the exhaustion of the natu ral phosphates and potash in the soil. The withholding of these essen tial constituents from the manuring often explains the unsatisfactory re sults obtained from nitrate of soda, which, in consequence, is described as ...

THE NURSERY. I Home-made Picture Books. — Little children enjoy pictures, especially" col ored .ones. Books for the mounting of pictures are not expensive"to 'buy; but the mother or nurse with con structive development, will soon put to gether paste-board lids of boxes and strongly glue "a piece of caliccr to the edges to fix them in book form to ad mit of leaves and pictures to be pasted later. A strip,of brightly patterned cretonno pasted., over the whole, and two strings neatly seamed to. the middle of eaoh back to tie the book together, makes strong durable backs that will bear a lot of knocking about. ' • Creative Productions.—Perhaps, af- . tor all, the rudely riiade book that eacli child has helped to make and watched grow gives the greatest satisfaction to the small folk' after all.

THE-.LEADING PORT OF THE WORLD. j" The very latest estimates of the j I value of the exports and imports "of [ the ten leading ports, of the world show that New York now stands at the head j } of the list, with an advantage of nearly two hundred million dollars over Lon don. The "Marine Review" says that New York's total of exports and im ports, uoav valued at 1,973,981,693 dol lars, is over five times the amount oi commerce that was carried on by the entire country half a century ago. As to the future,- it is declared that the Panama Canal is hound to streng then the lead now secured by tins port; for the canal will bring New York 1600 miles nearer to Ye Ice ham a than is Liverpool; 2500 miles nearer Sydney; 40U0 miles nearer Wellington, New Zealand; and 2o74 miles nearer Val paraiso. Bremen and Hamburg being some 500 miles further removed from the canal than Lirerpoo], it is evident that the new conditions—the general ie arrangement of trade routes—will tend to strengthen the posi...

NITROGEN AND PASTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914

NITROGEN AND PASTURES^ The results achieved by combined ' dressings of phosphates and* potash are often so strikiiig .that it is assumed the application of,!nitr6gen is not needed. as it is cohadered tlia/fc this need of ; the plant for; nitrogen is covered, by the supply collected from the atmos phere by the,clovers produced by tho phosphate and potash. The correctness! of this view is, how ever, questioned, and it is noti good policy in the long run to neglect the application of small'quantities of nit rogen. It is admitted that clovers possess the capacity of assimilating at mospheric nitrogen. but it is found tha6 quite young plant's have this power only to a limited extent, and until ar rived at a certain stage of development are obliged; to avail themselves of the nitrogen in the soil. . I An exclusive application of phosphate and potash to old,pastures-*may be des cribed as one.-sided manuring, . even al ^lough for a time, the gi'ass may. bo moreasea • by it. • By continued e...

For oth ers he has no regard, has no concern at nil; the weaker pigs lie pushes hard, and sends them to the wall. Ho gs'ts his legs inside the trough and sips the sparkling slop, and t'other hogs must root him off if they would get a drop. ■1 vhen he's riding in a car, two scats he'll occupy, and smoke a black and rank cigar, while women gasp and cry.

MARRYING IN HASTE. DOES IT MEAN REPENTING AT LEISURE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914

j MARRYING irHASTE. i " X \ . • . .. - ,i:' DOES IT MEAN REPENTING AT ^LEISURE. Th© proverb "marry in haste, repent at leisnre," would be more satisfactory if someone would be kind enough «> explain the exact meaning of the word "haste." No doubt the average sen sible snail, crossing a country- road, imagines itself to be progressing at a breakneck pace and brilliantly dodg ing the motor traffic. It would be surprised and hurt if it were to learn that we regard it as a symbol of ex tremo slowness. And there are human beings whose mental processes resemble the physical advance of the snail. They are think ing as fast as they can. In their own " opinion they are making up their minds with admirable velocity. But to the onlookers their calm leisureliness .s maddening. "How slow he is to propose I'' ex claim all the friends of the girl whose suitor has taken a year to oome to th: point.

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. THE HEIR TO A DUKEDOM : A HUGE PERSONATION FRAUD. .x. By S. W. Hopkins, Author of "On Four Brass Plates," etc., etc. PART 13. CHAPTER XIX.—(Continued.) One thing was certain—Mildred Moore would have nothing more to do with him. He was so excited and alarmed over his own condition that he did not revert to the strange fact that, though Gerald had been sent away from New York to take him away from the pernicious influence of Mildred Moore, Mildred Moore claim ed that she did not know Gerald Lovering. Had lie thought of this in his excited state of mind, undoubted ly he would have scented danger, for he would have suspected that Gerald Lovering" and Mildred Moore were still keeping up their intimacy, and, if such was the case, it would, of course, be to her interest to restore Gerald to his own, and unseat Barnes. But, had he reflected further, there was nothing to prevent Gerald Lovering came- forward and claim ing his inheritance, for undoubtedly there must be pa...

FIGHTING FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914

FIGHTING PISH. I - . I At Singapore it is the custom to j stock garden ponds with queer fishes —many of them of the fig-hiing va riety so dear to the heart of Orien j tals. These fish are so comblitive that, it is only necessarj to place two of j them near each other and irritate. them a little to bring on a lively ! combat. They charge eaoh other, with fins erect, at the same time changing colour in their excitement from the dullest of grey greens to < brilliant reds and blues. Indeed, con finement in close quarters , is not1 needed to arouse their combative; propensities. Place two glass jars close together, with' one of these | fighting fish in each, and they will at once swim round ami endeavour to charge each other through the inter posed glass. Even a single f.sh, see ing himself reflected in a mirror, will dart at his own image, and, irrita ted all the more by his failure to j reach bis supposed enemy, will as- | sume brilliant hues ; seeing his re- i fleeted antag...

CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914

CHAPTER XX. Barnes spent a day or two in the calm of Chiltern, growing more and more in the favour of the old duke, ! and studying, with a mind alert and i eager, all the beauties and grandeur ; of the great estate some day to be his. He had skilfully sounded the j duke, and had learned his opinions on many subjects, and invariably ap- ' peared to coincide with these opin ions. This, of course, gave the duke tlje impression that his grandson was a young man," of superior wisdom. He felt friendly towards his heir, and ready to humour him in any way consistent with the ducal dignity he had upheld so long. . . | One morning Barnes felt inclined to look about him farther . than his rambles round the castle had yet taken him, and ordered a horse to be j saddled. He started off on a canter towards Framlie, and we will, take ' leave of him at the start, while we ; pay some attention to others of our characters, intending to meet Barnes i on his return. | When Sir Peter, had got rid of Barn...
