FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. TheAgricultural Department of the Swiss Government have just published an interesting report of experiments conduotcd over three years to test the effect of different fertilisers on meadow land. Tlio fertilisers experimented with were nitrogen, phosphate of lime, and potash, the fertilisers being tried alone and mixed. The conclusion arrived at, is that, in ordor to obtain the heaviest and most profitable crops, it is .neoes sary ^to'su'pply fertilisers containing the three principal fertilising substances— phosphoric aeid, potash, and nitrogen. Tlio extra yield obtained from this sys tem of manuring covers tho cost of the fertilisers and leaves a good profit. The effect of the manures is more mark ed on tho first cutting than on the second cut, the avorago increase hav ing been found to be from 62 to 100 per cent, on tlio former, and 20 to &lt;10 per cent, on the second crop.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
(From our bpeoiul Correspondent). Wo all kamv that there is a steady increase in the population of this over grown metropolis—overgrown b. cause of tho disproportion between its inhabitants, and the numbor of the people in the rural dis tricts, wiiere they are wanted. Hut it is only when the fact is brought into prominence in some striking way that, we realise how great and how rapid the grrwth' is. One of these eyo-upeners is the fact that despite the vas-r, expan sion, at a huge expenditure, of tho pro visions for water supply, the demands are right up to tho innit of tho supply. On 4th February, 4912, a record con sumption of water was established, with 60,181,000 gallons for tho day. That record stood until January hist, when it was exceeded with 60,230,000 gal lons for one day. A few days later the enormous quantity of 74,579,000 gallons was consumed in the day, bring ing the average consumption of water in the metropolis for 22 consecutive days to 56,000,000 gallons per day.

FERMENTATION IN PAPERMAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
f-EPMENTATION IN PAPER MAKING. A in on g the recent improvements in handling paper-making materials is n process for exf raeting the starch from cotton rags that are used in making linen papers. Practically all cotton olotli lias some kind of a filler, and much-of this is starch. In clippings from now cloth there is a considerable amount of starch filler. It was the practice formerly to soak the rags in warm water, and then to boil them in an alkali solution. But tho effect or the alkali on starch is very slow, as it causes tho starch to swell up, so that the solution reaches tho inner part of tho starch grains only with difficulty. Malt is added in the proper amount to convert the starch into a soluble sugar which readily dissolves out of the fibre of tho cloth and leaves it free of the filler. The active principlo of tho malt is the "enzymes" that attack the starch just as they do in the brewing process, and convert it into a form of sugar that is easily disposed of. Wife: "'Bow d...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Busticus.") With reports of a favorable nature i regarding the season coming from many Pai'ts of the State, it is somewhat of a. shock to people in the more happily circumstanced localities to learn from the story of the deputation the other day that many Mallee settlors have had a particularly, bad time. Acoording to the statements adduced, many of the settlers, some of whom are amongst - the pioneers of the western portions, have been brought to a precarious fin ancial position as tho result of drought and tho ravages of grubs. . The ob ject of the deputation was to seek as sistance from the government to tide them over present difficulties to the timo, which tiiey are confident will come, when good.returns aro again obtained. Tho deputation was representative of settlers in a. largo area of mallee coun try, about 100 miles long, extending from Ouyen to the South Australian border. Tho following requests were made to tho Minister:—That the Ad vances to Settl...
THE IDEAL NURSERY. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
THE IDEAL NURSERY. It is not possible in every home to keep one room especially for the chil dren's use. \ But wherever it can bo done, the gain is great in very many respects. The kind of room, most suitable is a large, well-lighted, onsily-vontiated apartment with a sunny aspect, •• and ouo not situated too high up in the house. Sunlight and fresh air are almost as important as food to the child. Walls and ceilings are most hygienic when distempered or enamel led in pale tints. For tho floor a wasliablo cork carpet is a warm and sauitary covering, and can be bought in attractive patterns. An open fire place, which should be well protector.!, aids ventilation, and in the nursery is tho best mode of heating. Tho furniture should bo simple with out being Severn. Highly polished furniture and tho lumber of other rooms should never find their way into the nursery. There should bo a large, comfortable sofa, a cosy armchair, and a low table, which should br perfectly stable and fitted wi...
