DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 February 1914

DA5RY COWS. An American authority says: If rjiinn . fcity of milk is tho chief ;iini then the Holstcin would be tho breed to select, as this breed of cows gives mnro milk than any of tho others. Among tho Shorthorns there ;iro many good milking animals but the beef characteristics have crept into the blood of most Shorthorns arid on'the whole the.v cannot bo considered a profitable milking breed. In other words, they aro primarily a beef breed and to at tempt to get milk from thorn is work ing against nature. Tlie breed of cows that will produce tho most milk per aero will undoubtedly bo tho EToI stoin; tho Channel Is>lo cattle will pro duce. the most milk and fat. Tho am ount of milk or fat produced per acre depends of course upon the character »f the cows kept, the kinds of feed vised, and tlfo attention paid to the herd. Wo would not advise crossing Jerseys with Shorthorn cows unless the process is kept up. If a Jersey bull were kept at tho head of the herd for a series of yea...

NOISELESS CITY STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 February 1914

NOISELESS CITY STREETS. There is coming into use in Germany a cheap and ready method of asphalting a stone-paved street which is showing good results. The space between pav ing blocks are oleaned out to the depth of about an inch, and then a layer of melted asphalt is flowed over the street surface, the depth of the layer being about one inch. Before it is oooled, sand is sprinkled on and the surfaoe is smoothed. At Frankfort a section of this kind is now*laid, and it appears to stand the wear remarkably well. Should the method prove a success iu general practice it will afford an excel lent means of deadening the noise of city traffic'fyt a small expense. It is quickly carried out, and it need not stop tho circulation, on narrow streets for any length of time. Moreover, 'raoairj* are easily made. An amusing story (not guaranteed to bo new) is told of a minister's assistant -a "helper," as tho Scotch call him wlio was leaving owing to a dispute with the parson. "Brethren," ho said i...

POTASH AND CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 February 1914

POTASH AND CROPS. One of tho most striking effects of potash manures is the remarkable way mi whicli vlioy promote the growth of clovers and other leguminous plants. Thus when potash is applied to a field of mixed herbhi/e. it encourages the growth of tho clovers to such an ex tent Ih.-'t the general aspect, of tho vegetation is entirely changed. It also eneourriges the growth of the finer and mop* nutritious grasses. A fur ther effect of potash is that it renders tho plant- more- resistant to the attacks of fungoid parasites, well seen in fch<v case of rust on wheat, leaf-spot fun gus on mangolds, and even in some eases "finger and toe" in turnips. Pota-sh is tho dominant ma/iuria! in gredient for potatoes, whore it not only improves the quality^ hut gives a high er yield, which contains a larger pro portion of ? marketable size .potatoes.

FERTILISER TERMS.

There are four forms of phos phato of lime:-1. Soluble in water, as in superphosphate. It is mono-caloic namely, one equivalent of phophoric acid, is combined with one equivalent of lime, and when phosphato of limo is described ;is "soluble," it is understood by long custom and usance in tho trado to mean "soluble in water." This is recognised by tho Fertilisers and Feed ing Stuffs Act, because in Section I04 (1), wo find the words, "Tho expres sions 'soluble and insoluble' shalJ res pectively, mean soluble and insoluble in water," and if the phosphate of lime is not soluble in water, but in citri:: arid, it should be so specified. 2.
