Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY ANNA[?]EL GRAY. CHAPTER II. PHILIP ASHTON. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
A SEl1iAL STOIRY BY 1AiNJA EL GRAY. CHIAPTEIt II. PHILIP ASHTON Of all the many miseries that afflict mankind, surely one of the greatest is the possession of brilliant powers with scanty, perhaps no means to oultivate, them. Such people crave after the unattainable, their struggle is hard, :they are dissatisfi'edj with their lot, and feel unhappy. Philip Ashton was a man of thin description; he was by trade a carpenter, a man of toil, a man of the people, one of many thousands With vague possibilities of hidden power, but who recognise the futility of rebcl lion; he could only realise in a dull sad way that knowledge and freedom must .pass him by, and submission be gained ,by physical toil. Labor is indeed an excellent opiat:s. Chance and society had denied him that knowledge for 'which hlie llu:gered with a sort of dim despair, and yet how ignorant we :ll are-the supposed wisest of us I Life seems at times like a game of blind man's huff, and a number' of more or less excited chil...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
OF :RURAL INTEREST" (By "Rusticus.") "This is a great country, but it is not used," said an American the other day. He said it with an air of un covering a fact of which Australians are not aware, and which it would be well for them to know and to anot, ac cordingly. There is no gainsaying the accuracy of his observation, and it is probable that there are few Australians who think at all, .who do not ack nowledge its truth. But to not upon the knowledge is altogether a different matter. Thero is some progress to wards exhibiting more fully the im mense resources of the country, but it is a painfully slow process. For the most part, we are not far in advance of the lotos eating natives of the tro pics who are content to take the goods the gods provide in the shape of the fruit, fiish and flesh. Nature, with prodigal bounty furnishes, and lot it go at -that. True, we make some effort, but to a very great ex tent, this country of unbounded pos sibility in the way of production is in a ...
ACTION OF GRASS ON TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
ACTION OF GRASS ON TREES. In the latest number of Science Pro gress is an artiole by Mr Spencer I':: oring, F.RI.S., director of the Woburn Experimental iFruit Farm, Engaih c. giving the results of a series of ex haustive experiments to deternlinl' th,. effects produced by growing grass above the roots of fruit trees. Inii this country, the deleterious effect of grass on trees is generally recognised, and commercial orchards are, as a rule, carefully cultivated, but in England, there is considerable difference of opin ion and practice, grassed corehards he ing not uncoimmon, although intensive fruit growing, with clean cultivate- n. i the latest plhase of the industry. 'The chief reason for this divergence of opins ion Mr Pickering believes to lie ill the fact that effect produced by grass vares greatly according to the nature of the soil, and, in some few cases, ma m :; be negligible; the grassing of the land is also generally carried out gradually which materially reduces the evil...
REUTER'S CABLES. HOME RULE BILL. ULSTER WILL FIGHT. London, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
REUTER'S CABLES. HOME RULE BILL. ULSTER WILL FIGHT. London, Wednesday. During the debate on the Home Rule Bill in the House of Com mons, Sir Edward Carson said he doubted if the' House realised the unparalleled gravity of the King's speech. The position of Irish Unionists was intolerable. Ulster desired no concessions but only to be left alone. She ixas deter mined to resist. Mr Redmond repudiated a statement of Mr Carson that Nationalists did *not want the affections of Ulster but their taxes. The idea of conflict was hateful, and he hoped for a peace ful settlement. Mr Walter. Long's amendment was defeated by 333 votes to 255.
TURNIPS AND NITROGEN. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
TURNIPS AND NITROGEN. Mr Thomas Jamieson, Director of the Agricultural RIesearch Association of Scotland, has made a caretul con sideration of the turnip, wuhich ex perience and oxperiment show does not require artificial nitrogen, but is spec ially supplied with means for lixing the necessary qualities of this clement from tihe opena air. The rupo plant has a structure practically identihical with the turnip. The special examin ?,on of the turnip and rape was brought aboutt front the face that a better crop of oats was secured alter ploughing rape than resulted from oats after clover. In this connection, iMr Jamieson declares, "Not to carry the turnip leaves off the field cannot be too strongly repeated. The benefit to Sthe succeeding crop is well-known, though it was not 'realised that the absorption ot nuitrgrcen sa\s by the leaves, and that provision of thins ele ment to the succeeding crop is the ex planation. The turnip shows in a dried plant per 100 parts 2.25 of nitrogen. Vh...
DECENTRALISATION [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
DECENTRALISATION On January 17 Mr T. M. Smith, Organiser for the-.Victorian Decentral iation League, lectured at London House, Melbourne, on " Decentralisa tion and City Interests." At the outset Mr Smith referred to the fact that a Commission was sitting to consider how to bolster up our city ndustries; whereas there was really a ;reater need for inquiry into the shrink-! uge in 'he number of primary producers u the State. If this were undertaken, nd the problem satisfactorily dealt with, here would be no need to worry about bhe c)nditions of our secondary indus ries. They would be in no need of any aelp. The city c uld not be permanently )rosperous unless the number and- pros perity of primary producers steadily in treased. Therefore Decentralisation af. ected city interests as well as those of bhe country. The present condition in which 600, )00 I'eople, or nearly half the popula ion of the State, were concentrated in me centre, was an abnormal one, and was growing worse. Our tot...
POTASH AND CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
mustard and turnips. POTASH AND CROPS. One of the most striking 'effects of potash manures is the remarkable way in which they promote the growth of clovers and other leguminous plant:;. Thus when potash is applied to a field of mixed herbage, it encourages the growth of the clovers to such an ex tent that the general aspeot of the vegetation is entirely changed. It also encourages the growth of the finer and more nutritious grasses. A fur ther effect of potash is that it renders the plant more resistant to the attacks of fungoid parasites, well seen in the case of rust on wheat, leaf-spot fun gus on mangolds, and even in some cases "finger and toe" in turnips. Potash is the dominant manurial in gredient for potatoes, where it not only improves the quality, but gives a high or yield, which contains a larger pro nortion of marketable size notatoes.

A DEAL IN DALMATIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
A DEAL IN DALMATIANS. A gentlemen went into a shop in Birmingham and told the proprietor that he wanted to buy a Dalmatian dog to take abroad with him. "Certainly, sir," said the assistant. "I've got the very thing." In a quarter of an hour he brought out the animal; the customer paid the money and departed. Before his train time, however,. a heavy shower fell. The gentlemen returned with the dog in a. state of indignation. "Look at him l" lie cried. "You told me lie was a Dalmatian. Give me my money back. All his spots are washed off in. the rain." The proprietor apologised. "It's all that stupid fool's mistake." He called to his assistant. "James, did you sell this dog to this gentleman ?" "Yes, sir." "Well, you oughtl to be ashamed o yourself. Don't you know an um brella goes with this dog?"
CREAM IN HOT WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
CREAM IN HOT WEATHER. Hoards iDthiryman sayns:-In order to mako good butter in the summer it is necessary to take the very best of oare of cream while it is being saved for a churning. Neglect to do this is per haps one of the ceief causes of poor butter in the summer. Butter from properly kept and ripened cream will have a more desirable flavor, it will keep sweet longer, and bring a high er price in any market. Naturally, the first essential is to takd proper care of the milk in the stable. and separating room. It must be kept away from undesirable odours, if taints ard not wanted in the but ter. It is -preferable to skim a rather heavy- cream in- hot weather, one test ing about 35 per cent. It ought to be skimmed before the milk has cooled or' set around for any length of time. :One of the first essentials is to cool it nas jsooli (after cstparation as pos sible, When it can be arranged, a desirable method is to have the cream can set in a tank of ice water, or real cold well wat...
MEAT PROBLEM IN ARGENTINA. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
fMEAT PROBLEM IN ARGENTINA. Tlid shortsighted policy of indiscrim inato e slaughter of likely bulls and cows in Argentina, says a South American authority" has resulted in a statd of affairs that will be nothing short of a national disaster unless legislation is brought into force to preserve somo remnant of the once extensive herds. In the month of February last, 32,993 head o! cattle were slaughtered. Of these, i15,406 were cows. It is now necessary for Argentina cattle breeders to replcinish their diminished stook. Very recently 20,000 head of cattle were driven on to Argentina soil from Para guay. The price of meat is steadily rising day by day, and some of the rural markets of the province of Buenos Ayres are actually displaying horse flesh for sale. The shortage of meat which is being felt in Argentina is sti mulating enterprise in other distriots and nations, and soon Argentina may find her unknown competitors her suc cessful rivals. Two tablespoonfuls of flour, one. tea spoo...
