PROCESSES IN THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 February 1914

PROCESSES IN THE SOIL. Tlicro arc two great procwsos going nil continually in the soil, which arc known to lie duo to the ariTV^t ie;-; of bacteria : (a.) The conversion of :>in nionia and other compounds containing nitrogen, derived from decaying orga nio matter and nitrogenous fertilisers, into nitrate*;, the only form in which, so far a,s we, know, plants ean utilise tlio nitrogen.

RAISING CROPS WITH GUN POWDER.

Says this paper : "Brown powder contains about 80 per cent, of potassium nitrate; both of which are constituents of fertilisers. The au thorities at Indian Head, the navy proving station, wrote to the Agricul tural Department and asked tho ex perts if they did not want to experi ment with the gunpow&or as fertiliser. The offer;was refused. Then the navy officials determined to .use it themselves on the truck patch in connection with tho proving ground. The/result is re ported to bo most promising.

Derrinallum Mechanics' Institute. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 February 1914

Derrinallum Mechanics' Institute. The annual meeting was held at the hall on Friday night, February 13. Mr Wm. Oman presided over a small at tendance. The secretary's (Mr Hor wood's) report and balance-sheet showed a satisfactory state of affairs. At the beginning of the year the over-' draft was £169. The committee, faced with the problem of reducing the debt, decided, with the co-operation of the ladies of the district, to hold a Japanese fete. This was a great success, and gave a net profit of £130/13/1. Thejsec retary obtained a £20 grant from the Government for the building fund, and the overdraft has been reduced by £104, standing at £65. In addition, £30 was spent in the installation of a first-class lighting plant. Subscriptions showed a falling-off, although there were still some belated subs, to come in. Bet ween 40 and 50 carefully-selected new books have been added to the Library for the year, making a total of 380 books. There is work still to be done in connection with...

APPLE EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 February 1914

APPLE EXPORTS. Fruitgrowers, who export apples to Europe, will bo interested in some sta tistic.'; compiled by Mr Tkos. Boss Walker, regarding the actual results of shipments mad© last season from Tas mania, under the private marks of individual orchardists. The opera tions of 20 small growers, ranging in quantity from 111 to 803 cases, and aggregating 0400 cases for the season, gave a. net return on Mobart wharf of 0/J0'to i)/9 per case. Six'.y seven other grower.* exported between them 32,'165 and their individual average net re turn for the season on Hobart wharf ranged from 3/9 to 5/V per case. It iiiii.su bo remembered that Tasmanian apples as n rule do not sell in Europo at .such high prices as thoso from the main land of Australia. This evidence tends to show that small lines of well selected and onrefuily-packcd apples realise more money than the same class of fruit in large quantities. Buyers apparently are prepared to pay a con siderable. premium to secure tho whole of any...

FEEDING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 February 1914

FEEDING C'ALVES: ~ Clover hay is the best -to k'-op befclre the young calf ns soon as it will begin to oat. Pea and oat ]my is also good. When the calf is .four or live months old a little lucerne may bo given, but care should be taken not to feed too much, as there is danger of the lucerne causing scours. To raise calves with out any skim milk is n'bt very satisfac tory, although there arc sonio good calf meals on the market, but will not take the place of skim-milk entirely. It has been suggested that after a calf is two or three weeks old, a, bean soup may be given, which is prepared as follows:-Parboil the beans in soda, tiien drain off the water and boil again until soft; squeeze through a, colander and add salt until the soup has a de cidedly brackish taste. Then stir in some pollard and linseed meal, and add lukewarm water until oach calf receives about three quarts of the mixture. Of course the amount to be given will vary with tho different calves.
