THE FARM. WORN-OUT GRAZING LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 March 1914
THE FARM. WORN-OUT GRAZING LANDS. The proper treatment of old and worn-out grazing land often appears to be a very serious and difficult problem to many farmers. It is, how-. ever, one which may be readily solved. Old grass lands have bccomc rich in nitrogenous matter, but have usually been depleted of much of their mineral constituents, chiefly by the removal of potash and phosphate to build up the bodies of the animals grazing on them. What then is the chief remedy for such old and im poverished grass lands, or for poor freshly-reclaimed lands naturally de ficient ? Simply to apply the potash and phosphate whose deficiency pre vents the land from yielding .good crops of hay or carrying a rich and nutritious pasture. The required pot ash may be very profitably applit-d in a dressing of half or even lewt. 30 per cent, potash manure in autumn or winter. The results of all carefully conduct ed experiments by skilful experimen ters demonstrate the advantage to he gained by potash manur...
LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 March 1914
LCCERNK. Lucerne is talked of more than ever j now at our dairy moo tings. It is a ; well V.nown fact that it furnishes the ! cheapest source of protein of any roughage grown. One thine strongly emphasised by the experts is that it will not start under the ordinary j conditions usually given other crops by farmers. Quite contrary to the j prevalent opinion, it ntvds a rich., j sweet', thoroughly cultivated, well j drained soil at the beginning'. When j once starred it has been found to he one of the easiest crops to grow ever kinown. After a field, is well set it docs not require as much care, and as one farmer said nt a recent meet ing, "the more you abuse it then. the better it does." "Jersey Bulle-1 tin. 1918. I
MILKING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 March 1914
MILKING MACHINES. The New York experiment station I at Geneva follows the experiment i stations of some of the other States I in an endorsimont of the practicabil- j ity of machine milking. During, the past five years the station has used a popular make that is on the mar-1 kct and- a" careful record has been made of its work. - ^ i Surely this ought to be a thorough test, . and when the machine milking j is. endorsed on such a basis it should carry a lot of weight"- with those ; dairymen; who have been waiting, for j years for the satisfaction that will come to them once they are able to ! get away from .hand milling. - j "The. Review" was the first of American dairy papers to express its | faith in milking machines, upholding j the idea when others unhesitatingly i condemned them. Our faith in the | triumph of the mind over mechanical ' problems is always on the side of mind, and ten years trgo when we ob-j serveil intelligent dairymen, and es pecially the experiment stations, get...

Why We are Losing Our Touch. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 March 1914
Why We are Losing Our Touch. The sense of touch is very likely to become a. lost art. A thousand labour-saving devices now take the [ lace of mntions which formerly re quired deftness and skill. Manual &lt; exteritv is giving place to men tal guidance, and one 01 the most potent- factors in the upbuilding of civilisation is being abandoned. The effect of this has been made clear liy the restlessness of business men and the absonce of any means to release t^heir nervous energy. Nervous energy is misapplied un less there is sonic actual physical outlet. The nervous energy of rage finds its; relief in stamping of the foot or in pounding the table with one's fist : the nervous energy of grief finds - remission in tears ; the nervous energy of suspense show's itself in a feverish pacing to and fro : the nervous energy of joy in quicA', rhythmic movements,1 for, as the phrase goes, "we dance for joy." For centuries the. nervous energy of women has been consumed in two ways-by .hou...
Great Mysteries of Science. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 March 1914
Great Mysteries of Science. (By GARRETT P. SERVISS.). If Sir William Ramsay is right in the conclusions that he draws from recent experiments of his-and he is strongly supported by Messrs. Collie and Paterson-we may, be fore long, see the dreams of the an cient alchemists fulfilled in ways of which they had no conception. The alchemists, who have been uni versally derided and laughed at un til the last few years, in which chemists have been getting their eyes opened, believed that 'it was possible to turn base metals, such as lead, into gold. Modern science said : "No ! The different elements are fixed in their nature. It is idle to think of changing one into another. What they are they will remain." Then came the discovery of the "radio-active" substances, like ra dium, and chemistry suddenly learn ed a new lesson. To everybody's astonishment it was found that atoms are not, as had long been believed, ultimate, indivisable parti cles, by the heaping together of which, in varying nu...

SHE SAVED SOMETHING. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 March 1914
SIIJ-: SAVED SOMKMHN:f A noted music-teacher was giving a lesson to a talented but careless pupil, and was rapidly becoming im patient with her. Finally, at a most complicated part of a dilH enlt. piece, the pupil lilted her hands from the piano and made a wild dash for her handkerchief to stop a threatened snee-'e. It was the last straw. "Oh," reclaimed the teacher, thrusting her own handkerchief at her, "was Uu-re over such a girl ! i You loso your position, you lose ; your fingering, you lose > our hand kerchief-you lose everything!" "&lt;>h, n&lt;> responded the pupil, with a twinkle, "not everything ! T haven't, lost- ;ny temper." Coffee is a fairly good air puri fier. and a little humt on hot con Is will purify a sick room and j abolish bad smells. Many phvsi I cians think highly of the bracing effects of coffee taken before they visit cases of infectious disease.
