Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 January 1914
Correspondence. To the Editor of the " Gazette," Sir,-Since the trouble between the military officers in Germany and the civilians there, the Press in Australia have held up their hands in horror, and then congra. tulated themselves that even though we have compulsory milit ary training and service, such a tate of things could never occur here. The Australian freedom league say that we have in the making every indication that such a state of things is growing. The .Australian army is called a demo cratic one of free citizens, yet the scheme provides that only about 50 per cent of its active solaiers have a vote. It provides that no criticism shall be made public by its soldiers or those subject to the Defence Act. For instance Major Crouch (now colonel) writing in the "Lone Hand," March, 1913, explains that he had to get special permission to write, that the permission was qualified, and admitted that the consent to write to the press on military or other matters was de pendent on t...

CROSSLEY [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 January 1914
CROSSLEY From Our Correspondent, Threshing is nearly finished here, and the yields are much lighter than those of previous sea sons. Thirty bushels to the acreis common; a good many crops are lighter than that, and not many have yielded 40 bushels to the acre. Some good-yields have been ob tained at Laborer's village, notably Messrs T. Fleming and J. Strain, 20 and 47bushels to the acre re spectively, Mr Fleming's being of the Prior variety. Nobody seems to bother much about the prospect of a low price, the high price for fat pigs, which it is hoped will be maintained, causing barley growers to be more indifferent about the price of that commodity than for merly thanks to the co-opera tiop. Onion crops are not as promising as was expected after the fine rain fall of three or four weeks ago. It was a trying season for all kinds of crops, one check following another with unfailing regularity. Onions are a hardy crop, however, and given time to mature the general crop will be fairly go...

Sporting. WARRNAMBOOL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 January 1914
Sporting. - I , WARRNAMBOOL RACES. The weather on Saturday was perfect, consequently there was an increased at tendance at the well-appointed .course of the Warrnamubool Race Club, the gate takings amounting to £195, or £34 in ad vance of the receipts from the same source last January. The special train from here was well patronised, and Port Fairy was well represented amongst the large number who spent a very pleasant afternoon on the picturesque grounds. Scarcely any horses were scratched for the different events; therefore, fields (eqcept in the pony race) were exception ally large, and the racing was the best seen on the course for many a day. The pony race was a good thing for backers, who got back more than they lost at Port Fairy on the 10th January. The club has installeda Hutchinson patent weighing scales (similar to that at Ascot), the machine costing ,50. The arrangements for the conduct of the meeting and for the comfort and convenience of the public were admirable, ever...

NEW PROCESS FOR PRESERVING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914
NEW PROCESS FOR. PRESERVI\NG MILK. To the already known methods of preserving milk another has been add ed by two Italian physicians. Their method is to preserve milk by means of an atmosphere of carbonic acid gas, under pressure. The milk remains unaltered for several days, both in its physical and chemical characters, and in the biological constituents, the fer ments. Some of the germs present are killed, while others have their de veiopment arrested. By this method uncooked milk oan be kept for eight, or twelve days at a temperature of 12 deg. to 14 deg. C., while boiled milk is preserved indefinitely. The gas is produced with little or no trouble. The inventors claim for this method a solution of the question of infant feeding. Milk preserved in this manner ought certainly to be su perior to milk sterilised by heat, ow .ng to the fact that milk can be kept by this process" for a considerable pe riod with all pathogenic germs absent, while its' biochemical functions remain intact...
DEEP PLOUGHING FOR OATS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914
DEEP PLOUGHING FOR OATS. On the Iron Mlountain railroad de inonstration farm at Hope, Ark., oat land ploughed four inches deep yielded but ad busnels to the acre, while the same land yielded 77 bushels to the acre. 'Ths increase results from the fact that deep ploughing afforded a better reseruolr for soil, water, anud dry weather did not delay the growth. In tho deeper ploughing a larger am ount of moisture came in contact withL more soil particles and dissolved more plant food. There was also more space for root development, and the larger root development was enabled to se cure more moisture and; more plant food.
STORING OF WINTER VEGETABLES. (Minna A. Stoner, Prof. Home Economics, N.D. Agri. Col.) [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914
.STORING OF WINTER VEGE TABLES. (Minna A. Stoner, Prof. dome Econ omics, N.D. Agri. Col.) The storing of winter vegetables is economical and desirable. In the fall enough vegetables go to waste from the average farm garden to supply the table during 'the entire winter. The task of storing is not dilficult if one has a know'ledge of the conditions best suited for storage, and is willing to perform a small amount of labour. A dry well aired not too dark, frost proof room, cellar or sodhouse will serve the purpose. The most favour able temperature is not over 50 degrees Fah. Celery, cabbage. and sweet po tatoes should be stored in the coolest part of the room. Racks should be adjusted on which to place the storage boxes or barrels. This avoids the dangers of overheating, excess mois ture, and prevents decay. All veget ables should be gathered before the frost, sorted, dried thoroughly before packing. For long storing, reserve .hose of most perfect formation and firm -textured. Each roo...
CHERRY WINE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914
CHERRY WINE. A recipe for the manufacture of cherry wine, recommended by the viti cultural Expert of ivew South Wales Mr M. tliunno, reads :---Lemove tne stalks of the cherries, and then make a puip of the fruit without breaking the stonts, working the pulp so as to tree it entirely from the stones. The pulp should then be passed through a sieve. 'To the pulp of every 251b or truit add 51b sugar, together with 50o cream of tartar and pne gallon of water. Stir the whole and make a homogenous fluid. Plaoe the vessel in a room where the temperature is from l5 to 70 deg. iFahr., and cover same. with a cloth. After about 24 hours, the liquor will begin to ferment. When fermeitation has subsided (which can be judged by the cessation of bubbling) the liquid should be separated from Ite pulp, and the former (which is now wine) is stored away in a cask and kept in a cool place. The storage vessel should be kept filled, either by adding more of the cherry wine or else good sound grape wine, r...
