"SUN, WIND, AND WAVE." [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914

"SUN, WIND, AND WAVE.' Ii tihe "Strand," Mr. Arthur Dolling. under the title given above, discusses the possible sources of the power of the fu Lure. Sle quotes Sir William Itamsay's de claration that there is no necessity to mine coal at all. Sir William would run a bore-hole down to the coal stratum, and by means of tube's set fire to the coal by electriceity, and blow air down to enable the coal to burn. Then gas would be produced to work gas-engines at tihe mouth of the bore-hole and pro duce power there, which umight be dlf fused by electricity over an area oa a hundred miles or more radius. " ly this plan 30 per cent, of the coal energy can be converted into useful work, instead of a meagre 15 per cent., which, by present methods of coal con sumption, is the best efficiency obtain able.; Thus we may double the life of our coal mines, and, in-'addition, tihe smoke problem will have become a thing of the past; 'The sun has also been harcessed to ulpply man with requisite motive ...

WHY SCRAP OUR OLD BATTLE SHIPS. Lord Brasse,: i. an optimistic paper on "'hi Navy Esatimates," makes a wise remark about scrapping. He says:--It is not policy to destroy armoured- ships and cruisers. anot 20 years old, in second condition, and still fit for certain oservices' The arnmoured ships which have been ruthlessly bro ken up would have been valuable fo, the defence of ports andu harbours iu distant parts of the Empiio-Bris bane, Melbourneo, Adelaido-with ap proaches through inland seas. .Thl'ei battleshlips of the elder day need not have been kept nloat.

Thoe live in villas and mansions outside the !ity, and tliereby evade the payment of the heavy poor rates. 'lhe mass of casual labour in the city receives wages which seem to oscillate around 14j a .week. '1The staple industry of the popula tion is the manufaoture of linen and cotton goods,, and is carried on in the main I'y women and girls, partly in mills and factories, and partly at home.

The Cat and Disease Under normal oonditions the germs of nearly all "pidemic and. local dis eases thriveupon the family cat. Even where tho -et is itself not subjeob to the diseases, it easily spreads the con tagion, and occasionally is guilty on both accounts. Tnus, in the case 01 dlptherla, the cat not only has the disease itself, but also carrTies.it onthe mucous membranes of fur. Influenza is spread broadcast by fur and, feet, and Hawlett has recently shown that as a distributor of plague, the oat vies in virulence with the rat. Ringworkn iml tapeworm, says "Good Health" are spread in the same way, and pus germs find easy lodgment in the thick hair. from which the stroking hand qulokly ,nveys them to the human body. The germs of typhoid and tuberculosis are similarly distruted, as well as the .ro subtle an l~es understod germs of Whooping-cough, measles, scaroer fever, and small-pox. This is more rapidly appreciated when we consider how quiokly the cat is given as a play .hing t...

GREEN MANURING AND FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914

GREEN MANURING AND FER TILISER. The system of green manuriug to furnish a supply of organic matter, and to collect nitrogen from' the air in the case of the green manuring crop being leguminous--can be employed with decided advantage on sandy soil, and also on medium suils, for fields 't which it may not be convenient to ap ply farmyard manure. To get the Sbest results from green manuring, it is necessary to supplement it by the application of fertilisers. On this subject a distinguished German ipro fessor of Agriculture has the following observations :-The necessity for the addition of iitrogen .is dependent on dreds, not able to face the winter without a set of furs valued at £60 .oe £70 being added to half a dozen other sets. I have known a woman, wlose husband was on the brink of bank ruptcy, paying out a last available £10 noto for a velvet coat. Dressmakers could tell mnany surprising stories of what an inordinate love for dress means -wo have had many revelations; but the rev...

HEAD TESTING [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914

SHE?D TE.STNr, While there are many hIiwh-uroaue ing cows in the Northwest o,. U.S.A.. the averagec production of cows be ing milked is low. Figures from the tast census show that there are iii the. State of Idaho approximately 80,000 iows being milked and are classed as dairy cattle. The value of dairv?products pr. duced ini the State of Idaho is'only about 2,000,000 dol. These figures in dicate that nuindy cows are being kept at an naetuai cost to the farmer. Re ccrds that the writer has kept on dif ferent heids over the State during the past year show that twenty per cent. of the cows were not paying for the feed they consumed. For every dollar expended for feed 'stuffs some animanlsi were onyiv giving returns of 75 'and 80 cents. The dairy cow may be compared to . machine. Raw material is furnish ad hsr in the form of alfalfa, oats )and barley and milk is the finished piodiset.

The Benefit of Legumes [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914

The ,Benefit-of.Legumes It is a well know~n fact that a wg orous leguminous crop such as~ pees or clover enriches the land in nitrogen and that another crop, say wheat or oults, following in rotation will'.benefit from the nitrogen residues. Rebent investigations show, however, that noe cereal may derive benefit from the eg ume even when both are growing at the saihe time. In the "Jour. Agric. Eci.,'' vol. '3, experiments are describ ed-bearing this nferou.ce. Ojats wmere ,grown in quartz sand .in. small pots placed in larger pots also filled with 9uartz sand but gowng peas. Tl'he inner pots thus grow oats only and tlie larger outer pots peas only, and in both cases all the necessary plant foet, were added except nitrogen. The inner pots were of two kinds. Where they were of the ordinary porous pattern tbe oats grew vigorously. In the latte' caseit is believed that soluble nitrogen ous matters diffused through the innezi pot from the peas growing outside. Confirmation of these resul...

Seymour Water Supply SPECIAL MEETING OF TRUST [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914

Seymouir Water Supply SPECIAL MEETING OF TRUST A special meeting of the Seymour Water Trust will be held to-morrow (Saturday) for the purpose of dis cussing a ucheme whereby the water supply to the town will I-e improved. The inconvenience caused consumars by cutting off the water at certain periods has become very annoying, and-while it is re cognised that the commissioners are doing their best under present coln ditions, the increasiug demands have.made it imperative that some thing must be done before tinother summuer to improve the sappty, and their action in holding a special meeting to discuss the matter will meet with the approval of all rate payers. The sum of L7o00 has been voted by Parliament as a loan for duplication of the main fromn Tra wool to Seymour, but it is doubtful if such a scheme will meet with the approyal of the comnmissioners, in view of the diminished supply of water at Fall's Creek.
