SILO DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

SILO DIFFICULTIES. The efforts to silo such milled fodder have however often been unsuccessful bccausc of insufficient pressure in the' silo. The wilted fodder will not pack down sufficiently by its own weight to exclude the air, and as a result white mouldy patches are apt to appear in the silage, destroying a large amount of the contents. This may possibly, be avoided in deep silos by weighting the' fodder or bj- applying a liberal quan tity of water to the well trampled sur face of the fodder, but is on the whole a risky practice, and not to be recom mended. The better and surer way is to place the green fodder in the silo with the full amount of sap in it. Clover comes next in value to maize for siloing, and is on the whold more cheaply grown and saved, and it also has the advan tage of being more easily handled both before and after curing, unless maize is chopped into short lengths, as is often done. This makes it more easily handled, and it comes out of. the silo in better co...

SULPHUR ON POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

SULPHUR ON POTATOES. It has been found that by rolling tho tubers in powdered sulphur before planting potatoes infested with scab, the danger of disease is diminished. Carrying the experiments a step fur ther, trials have been made to test the effect of applying the sulphur to the soil at time of planting. The results have proved to be very satisfactory. Xot only wero the tubers almost free from scab, but the crop was more abun dant. Did the increased crop come from the freedom from disease, or did the sulphur exercise a direct manurial I'ft'ect on the plants? To test this ques tion, a set of trials has been made at an agricultural station in England. Ap plications of the fertilisers suitable to the crop were made to different lots namely, -A cwt. of sulphate of potash, and 2 cwt. of nitrate of soda, and to the p!ots ivere added respectively 2 cwt, and -1 cwt. of powdered Sulphur per acre. All the plots to which sUl-' phur had been applied showed a*n in crease, and the complete manu...

THE ART OF BUDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

THE ART OF BUDDING. There are very few amateurs who kavo not at one time or another tried their luck at the art of budding. Most of us have experienced the more or less anxious time which follows the inser tion of a bud and the doubts and fears that naturally arise regarding the suc cess of the operation. These experi ences of success and failure all add an indefinable charm to the art of garden ing, especially when it is followed for pleasure and not as a means of liveli hood. One of the very best plants to I practice budding upon is the rose, and I l.he season has now arrived when this ! work can be undertaken. The process I is an exceedingly simple one, and after a very little practice anyone whose fin gers are not "all thumbs" can bud with sufficient ease to get a good deal of pleasure out of it.

THE SERENE PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

THE SERENE PIG. It is with distinct pleasure that we pen a tribute to the moek and lowly pig, author of our breakfast bacon (says the "National Provisioned'.'). Wc have felt for some time that this philosopher-for the pig must be a philosopher to enduro the slings and slurs of thoughtless man-was not re ceiving his due in the public preBS. Poets have sung the praises of tha meditative cow. The horse, noblest of_ steeds, has been portrayed upon a I million canvasses, and found a place in epic and in psalm. Tko hen has been recommended to take the place of the eagle upon our "far-flung. Jian nevs," but until this time, ho one has come forward with a truly worthy en conium upon the pig. Well, here it is-a tribute to "an Un complaining fellow that seeks no fav ors save the privilege of plodding With his face fastened upon the ground. Consider for a moment' 'tie pig. j The pig is Nature's sedative. He is the antithises of excitement and the antidote of worry. When frayed nerves cry out i...

AN EFFECTIVE SEED-BfcD. One oi' tlie cases iu which galvanised iron is imported makes a handy appli ance for raising ilower seeds. Mount it on legs formed from the lid, to nearly the height of a table. With the rest of the lid divide the cavity of the oaao with two lengthwise partitions-and live to eight breadthwise. Fill the com partments with so.U and-manure; water them, and after the weeds come up turn over the material and plant your seed, 'i'he advantages are that you have'your piants compact, easily tended, can '-keep them freo from pests with a manitoum of trouble, and you can easily cover up the frame in bad weather. The table can be made slugproof by putting'", tins of salt and water for its lugs to atSnd in. Saucers of bra,n and beer placed among seedlings will attract slugs from the lattor, as a rule.

DRYIING PEACHES AND APRICOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

DRYIING PEACHES AND APRICOTS. Briefly, all that has to be done is to split the fruit in halves, remove the: pit, spread the halves on trays, cut side uppermost, and, after exposing it to the fumes of burning sulphur long enough to fix the colour put it out in the sun until dried to a leathery con sistency. The requisites are a number of wooden trays-3 ft. by 2 ft. will be found the most convenient size-a ;gas tight box or cabinet in which to put tho trays of fruit for sulphuring, and a sharp knife for cutting. There is nothing better for the latter purpose than a well-worn dinner-knifo with a short, thin blade. Theoretically, the riper the fruit the better the sample, but in practice it should be firm enough to stand up on the trays and hold the juice which exudes into tho cup during tho sulphuring process. An elaborate .' nulphuriug-house is not at all necessary. An. inverted box large enough to cover a stack of from 12 to 20 trays is com monly used. A great many of these covors ar...

PUT THE DAIRY ON A COMMERCIAL BASIS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

PUT THE DAIRY-ON A COMMER CIAL BASIS. "VYhy should not the dairyman j'oJJon the same plan as any other business man and put his dairy upon a com mercial basis ? That is to say, special ise the work of the dairy and put a man upon each job as does the busi ness man. Far too many dairymen run the dairy along as a side issue, milking before and alter a day's work (as a ionn of recreation) or having tho boys do it before and after school. In either case, it is nobody's special work, to milk and take care of the cows; so tin.-.'cows do not get the attention that they otherwise should have. On the other hand, a man that milks should not be required to do anything else". He will then develop a grip for milking, and he wiil always have his ?hands in good shape. He can nii.'k faster and better titan the man who milks as a side issue. A man who milks and does nothing else is giving his string of cows his undivided attention.

LIME WATER FOR CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

LIME WATER FOR CALVES. Calves which arc being fod from the bucket often benefit considerably by being' given some lime water, a' useful form of treatment for troubles like diarrhoea and indigestion. The pro portions may be of some such ratio as a quarter or one-third of lime water to the ration of milk. This prevents acidity and also the formation of the milk into unduly large and iudigestible curds. Lime water is made by adding two ounces of slaked -lime to, say, half a dozen pints of water, The mixture should be stirred briskly, and then al lowed to settle. The dissolvod matter will go to the bottom of the vcssol and the lime water can be poured off. The solution is then, ready for use.

RAISE THE HEIFERS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

RAISE THE HEIFERS. No farmer should fail to raise the heifers from his good cofrs. The expense of raising a heifer is paid in instalments, and when a. cow is ouught, it goes iu a bunch. A man may raise an extra fine cow, but a really good oile is hard to buy; will cost three or four times as much as the raising of a heifer. There is always a risk iu buying thait tho cow may not do as well in her new location, and it takes time for her to get acquainted with your herd_. The heifer raised on the farm is familiar with her breed and location. Mr Beginner, always raise the good calf from a Dure bred sire. It nays. -W. E. Elliott.

THE FUTURE OF THE FARM BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

I tHE FUTURE OF THE FARM BOY. I You just can't help noticing some boys whoij.you visit a farm. It's hard to tell why, too, sometimes. They all look alike at first until you get close and grip them by the hand and start in to talk About things to tliem. I mean the things they work with, think about and which make up their lives. You can tell in an instant whether or not the boy has known and felt the need of more knowledge about the things ho has been doing. An earnest, active minted boy, if interested, is a human sponge, he absorbs to overflowing and then takes in more and more-he just can't imbibe enough of the newly dis covered wonders to his eyes. At this stage the boy is going to form ideas that are going to have a part in decid ing his future. The greatest factor or instrument that can have a great in fluence at this time is the boy's father, with whom ho ja usually engaged in the farm work while not at school. He looks to him for new ideas, for explana tion of perplexing probl...

THE TACTFUL GIRL [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

THE TACTFUL GIRL !The tactful girl is welcomed every where. She is usually successful in the ( home, iu society and business, besides 1 being a comforter in trouble and one who can enter heartily into another's heartiness. To be tactful one must be utterly free from self-consciousness and try to think only of the requirements of others. A ready listener is always welcomed in all grades of society, and the tactful girl will patiently -listen to the woes and ills of other people without letting them see how uninter esting they are to her, or, in return, repeating her own troubles. What good can it do any ono to di vulge a family secret or failing? A tactful girl will find no interest in this kind of conversation, and will intro duce a more pleasant topic. Sho can always keep a quiet tongue in her head when necessary, and will hesitate to spread unkind gossip. I When in company of the opposite ' sex, a girl will show her taetfulness by j the interest which she takes in the J likes and ...

DO IT NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

DO IT NOW. To-day is the clay to get busy. To morrow may be too late. The ex pression "Do it now" may bo getting trite, but it is a good motto for a man to keep before him. It is so easy to put off until to-morrow what ought to be done to-day. Much loss often comes f-'om procrastination. This is especi ally truo on the farm. The farmer may suffer a good deal of loss by fail ing to do something that he felt ought to have been done to-day. There is a man who intended to sep arate his cows from the pigs. The cows are due to calve, but he neglects to remove the pigs. That night a young calf is devoured by the swine. Of course it is quite a loss. Ho just felt he must fence the stock away from the old straw rick. He intended to do that right after break fast, but something happened he did not get to it. Another day and he would not neglect it; but that' night the storm came and blew the rick that had been eaten under over on a fine Jersey cow. Seventy-five dollars (£15/ 12/6) . gone in a ...

BLACK NOSES IN CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

BLACK NOSES IN CATTLE. There is a sort of general objection to the existence of black noses among cattle, anil even with sheep, and on en quiry, it will bo found that this objec tion goes back a very long way. Prac tically, indoed, it goes back to the in troduction of the Shorthorn breed that is, more than a hundred years ago. Previous to that time the majority of the native breeds had black noses, be causo many of tbem in addition had a black colour all over, and while the in troduction of the Shorthorn was an all round improvement, the animals car ried with thorn flesh-colored noses, and' consequently the difference between the black and pink noses was almost a sign that the former was an aboriginal un improved animal, and the latter was the new improved Shorthorn. Beyond that, however, there is the historical fact that ail our wild white cattlo which have 'been preserved in various parks for many centuries have got black points, noses, ears, horn tips, hoofs, and tail tassels, al...

She had a scrap-album in which she preserved the likenesses of the Madonua as artists iri all ages and in all countries have imagined the ineff able face of the ilothor of Joaus. These she studied and lived over, and day by day she seemed to grow insensibly into a resemblance to one of these, though which one it was none could have told.
