HOME DOCTORING [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914

HOME DOCTORING BY AGoIcoLA. Before proceeding with a series of articles on the commoner diseases of those animals which are either of com mercial or domestic value it is proposed to firstly give the reader a brief insight into bacteria in its connection with d s ease, diagnosis, and the action and uses of the more readily obtained drugs. As the horse in all probability receives more attention and creates more interest than any other animal known to thi civilised world, he, unless otherwise stated, will form the particular subject of these notes. As a general rule the better bred he is the more susceptible h is to disease and injury In these cases where the horse is the subject of the re marks it should not be thought that the treatment applies to him alone, but the " hl.me-doctor" shc.uld use his own judgment, bith from a commercial and medical outlook, as to how far he will pursue the remedies with other animals. BACTERIA AND DISEASE. - Bacteria are miscroscopic vegetable organisms...

THE LARGEST ICE CAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914

THE LARGEST ICE CAVE. A few years ago some members of the Austrian Speleological Society dis covered in the Dachstoin mountains some caverns which are amongst the largest in Europe. One of these grot toes, the longitudinal axis of which is fully. 6500ft. long, moreover, turned out to offer additional interest by., its truly enormous ice nasses, and was found to be the largest known ice cave in the world. Though a scorching sun may be burning outside on the bare mountain rock, there is always an icy wind blowing through this underworld, freezing everything within its reach. Only sometimes, when the outside tem perature ranges between 32 and 41 deg. Cnt., and a comparatively warm rain penetrates through the fissures of the rook, entering right into the cavern, will there be a temporary calm and dis tinct melting of the ice. The Dach stein ice cave comprises several domes filled with ice, which communicate with one another through a number of fro zcn galleries. An ice crevice 89 ft. de...

NOTHING SERIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914

NOTHING SERIOUS. ---------+ An old Quaker who lived a short distance from the town of Alfreton, was continually being robbed of his apples which grew in an orchard, ad joining his estate. At last he ascer tained from one of the villagers the names of several of the culprits, but took no proceedings in the mat ter. Several days after he was on his way to the station carrying a large bag in his hand, and meeting one, of the culprits, whose name was Sammy, he saluted him with a cheery "Good morning, Sammy," and asked him to carry the bag for him to the station. Sammy naturally consented,, expecting a good reward, but judge of his disappointment when, on putting the bag down at the station, the Quaker thanked him, and added, "Now, Sammy, me and thee's straight for the apples." "Oh, waltz me around again, Wil lie !" Willie looks at his programme. Yes; No. 8 is a waltz, so he will certainly waltz her around again. And so is No. 9, and No. 10, .and No. 11. In fact, it is the waltz, the wal...

FERTILISER TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914

FERTILISER TERMS. In. the minds of farmers who have little time to study the teclmicalities of nomenclaturo, confusion may easily arise as to the precise meaning of the different names under which'phosphate of lime is offered for agricultural pur poses. There are four forms of phos phato of lime:-1. Soluble in water, as in superphosphate. It is mono-caloic namely, one equivalent of phophoric acid, is combined with one equivalent of lime, and when phosphate of lime is described as "soluble," it is understood by long custom and usanee in the trade to mean "soluble in water." This is recognised by the Fertilisers and Feeod ing Stuffs Act, because in Section 10, (1), we find the words, "The expres sions 'soluble and insoluble' shall res pectively mean soluble and insoluble in water," and if the phosphato of lime is not soluble in water, but in citric acid, it should be so specified. 2. Sol uble in weak acid, as in basic super phosphate, reverted or retrograde phos phato. This form is "d...

DECENTRALISATION. TrE report of an address on the above subject, which appears in another part of this paper, is insertel at the request of the Victorian Decentralisation League. It embodies some very significnt facts which the people-of Victoria wouli do well to ponder over. At the present time there are 600,000 people or nearly half the p',pulation of the State concen trated in one centre and during the last census period, while the total increase was 114,000, the metropolitan county absorbed nearly 100,000 of the number, leaving only 14.000 for. the remainder of the State.and that. d d not nearly ac count for the natural increase of births oyer, deaths. In no less than 16 coun ties there was an actuanl decrease and the ngimber of primary producers fell by 21,000. The epeaker aliqded to the fact that a very different state of things prevailed in New Zealand, where there were 19 ports with railway lines connect ing them with surrounding districts and there were no very larg. cities...

ST. ANDREW'S CHURCH [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914

ST. ANDREW'S CHURCH The annual meating of the congrega ion of St. Andrew's Church was held in Tuesday evening, the Rev. G. E. larrison in the chair. The first, business, after reading the ninutes, was to consider if the congre ;ation wou!d venture on the step of in 'roducing the new hymn hook which was compiled by a number of the leading ministers and musicians in the United Kingdom and published for use in Pres byterian Churcues about 25 years ago, but has not yet been adopted in Orbost. This matter comes up annually for die oussion and is always approached with extreme caution. By the time the Presbyterian Church has decided on the next revision cf the hymn book, the Or bost congregation will probably have made up its mind to adopt the one which should ba now in use At any rate they have decided not to plunge yet. The annual reports and balance sheet showed that the Church and Sunday School were in a sound financial posi tion. The retiring members of the Board of Management, Messr...

RAILWAY RATE A large deputation, organised by the Tambo Shire Council, waited on the Minister fur Railways last week and asked for the repeal of the Railway Lands Acquisition Act, under which loans are raised and rates levied by the Rdilway Trusts.

Cameron, who was supported by the Speaker, Sir Frank Madden, Mr Rees, M.L.C., and 14 representatives of country constitu encies, several of whom were members of Railway Trusts. Mr Oman, M.L.A., gave instances of the operation of the Act, which he said were legalised rob bery. Mr Bowser, MI .L.A., said that for the Wangaratta to Whitfield line they had to pay £510 to begin cillect ing £1256, and they would have to pay £5000 before they finished. Ors D. H.

The Amber Bottle in which Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills are packed is probably better known as a familiar object about the home than any other bottle of a like kind.

AUSTRALIA'S CATTLE FUTURE [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914

AUSTRALIA'S CATTLE FUTURE The rate at which important Icatiie sta-: tions through'out Australia are 'being. snapped up from the small mep, and the. sheep farms, brings forward,- now and. again, a thought on the future' beef sup p'y of the Commonwealth.. It is w'll known that the gradual hardening of prices of fat cattle in various meat mar kets of this country is an effect that fol lows a direct cause-and that cause is :he gradual reduction in the number of arge holdings on which;?Aistralia has been d.pendent for regular-'.supplies,, both for domestic and export purposes. As railways have extended to the West, so has the sheep farmer followed in their wake, gradually " dethroning " the local cattle king. Where tho sheep have not been put on the land, it is the small settler who lands himself on the former home of the horned stock, and even if he is inclined to go in for stock raising, it is to sheep, and not to cattle, that-his thoughts naturally turn. One great reason is, of course...

THE NEW FARMER. SCIENTIFIC ADVANCE [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914

THE NEW FARMER. SCIENTIFIC ADVANGE If the "transit on of bgriculture' 'which is thought to beo in progress is to reach the more intensive state de sired by reformers, it can only be in duced by the farmer. Landlords may Icad and persuade, but the farmer's belief in the form of cultivation which pays him best is the deciding factor. W\\ have signs in plenty that the farmer is advancing along the lines of scientific theory (says a correspon dlent of thle 'London TLines,"). On paper and in the abstract, the higher the farming the greater the profits for all concerned. The ideal to aim at is that Danish farm, much visited by English Farmers and landowners, which yields an average profit of £4 an acre. It, is clamied that a net in coim of £20,000 a year is made from its 5000 acres. At the other end of the scale we may take a score of pro perties on English wolds and heavy lands, as well as on Noerfolk sands, wlhich do not yield iu profit of 5/ an aCtre or near it.
