THE FARM. THE ABUSE OF ARTIFICIAL MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

THE FA AM. A THE ABUSE OP ARTIFICIAL MANURE. In n lecturo recently delivered br. forc tlio Mayflcld VftrmcrB' Club, Mr. G. A. Cowio, M.A., B.Sc., in describ ing certain abuses of artificial fertili sers, pointed out as one ot the mnsl flagrant the fnr too common system o( one-sided or incomplete manuring. Many farmers were prone to use only one sort of manure and neglect altogether the other fertilising in gredients which may be as important, or even more important, for the crop or soil in question. As practical instances of the above error, the lecturer quoted the fre quent use alone of nitrnte of smla, which at first might pro-luce „ luxu riant growth, but will afterwards refuse to perform Its proper function owing to the exhaustion of the natu ral phiosphates and potash in Ui" soil. The withholding of these crkivi tial constituents from the manuring often explains the unsatisfactory ri suits obtained from nitrate of swln, which, in consequence, is described a "scourge" and "stimu...

RENOVATING PASPALUM. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

RENOVATING PASPALUM. As illustrating the wonderful recu perative powers of paspalum, a pad ! dock which had been in paspalum •for thirteen or fourteen years was ploughed tip. This was necessitated by constant cutting for seed and heavy grazing having weakened thr sward. The experience in question was that of n settler In the Corambn district, New South Wales Sonu time ago a paddock of twelve acrr> was ploughed up with the object o! utilising it for the growing of fodder crops for the dairy herd. Being dry j at the time the work was heavy, am\ the ploughing necessarily shallow. About the middle of December maize was sown. Dry conditions continuing produced indifferent germination. But with the storms of January the pas palum made a move, the younc growth showing up between the sod." as if it had been planted. The maize was about 4 to 5 feet high, but the paddock was one waving field of pas palum fence high, and in full seed. Thr response was simply wonderful. An interesting featur...

CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

C'HAPTKR XX. Karnes spent a day or two in the calm of Chiltern, growing more and • more in the favour of the old duke, » and studying, with a mind alert and ^ eager, all the beauties ami grandeur of the great estate some day to be his. He had skilfully sounded the duke, and had learned his opinions on -many subjects, and invariably ap peared to coincide with these opin ions. This, of course, gave the duke the impression that his grandspn was a young, man* of superior wisdom. He felt friendly towards his heir, and ready to humour him in any way consistent with the ducal dignity he had upheld so long. One morning Barnes felt inclined to look about him farther than his rambles round the castle had yet taken him, and ordered a horse to be saddled. He started of! on a canter towards Framlie, and wc will take leave of him at the start, while we pay some attention to others of our characters, intending to meet Barnes on his return. When Sir Peter had got rid of Barnes, and Mildred had got ...

FIGHTING FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

FIGHTING FISH. |. At Singapore it is the custom to stock garden ponds with queer fishes —many of them of the fighting va riety so .dear to the heart of Orien tals. These fish arc so combntive that it is only necessarj to place two of them near each other and irritate them a little to bring on a lively combat. They charge canh other, with fins crect, at the same time changing colour in their excitement from the dullest of grey greens to brilliant reds and blues. Indeed, con-| finemcnt in close quarters , is not needed to arouse their combative propensities. Place two glass jars close together, with1 one of those t fighting fish in each, ami they will at oncc swim round ami endeavour to chargc each other through the inter posed glass. Kvcn a single fish, see ing himself reflected in a mirror, will dart at his own imagt*, and, irrita ted all the more by his failure to reach his supposed enemy, will as sume brilliant hues ; seeing his re flected antagonist do the same, he will redouble ...

They were on hoard the Great East ern Knilwuy's steamer. "Dresden," and at about ten o'clock at night they separated and retired—us was supposed—to their respective cabins. Jn the morning, when the steamer > was near Harwich, it was discover- j ed that Dr. Diesel's bed had not been slept in, although his cloth ing was found to be arranged in a manner that suggested that he had prepared to go lo bed. A bunch of keys hung from his handbag, and his watch was placed in an elevated position, so that ho might be able to see the time as ho lay in bed.

The Earth's Heart-throbs. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

The Earth's Heart-throbs. ♦ This earth of ours is by no means solid or firm. Tho .solid part on which wo walk and build and in which wc burrow is only a shell covering a molten yolk. And this shell throbs with many and diver* motions, to • say nothing of tho earthquakes and eruptions that every now nnd then shatter and shake it and rip it open. Some of these motions arc regular nnd rhythmic. Twice a day the moon lifts and lets fall not only ail the waters of tho surface but also nil the continents and mountains and cities. Every slightest shock passes through the earth. Seismographs (earthquake registering instruments) are now so delicate that they register the hammering of a horse's hoofs upon a road miles away, while every breaker upon the beach writes the record of the shock it imparts to the earth. Certain parts of the earth are steadily rising higher above the sea, while other parts are slowly sub siding. Sometimes these stow and gradual motions become violent and spasmodic. Th...

Faithful Schoolmistress, j 4 :./ A recent book, entitled/ "Recollec tions of a Missionary in the Great West," gives a pathetic story of a little schoolmistrcSH who was faith ful to the end. She had been visit ing, and, with a dozen or inoro , people, was caught by a tremen dous cyclone. They were in a houso which stood on the edge of a high blulT. Tho house wns wrccked, and every inmate but one billed. This survivor said that tho family wore at slipper when the storm struck the house, and the schoolmistress happened to sit next tho baby, which was crowing in its high chair. When they found the poor girl that night, she was still alive, although she died almost instantly. Tho wind had torn ofl her clothes, even her two rings, and left her but ono shoe. Iier hair wns whipped to rags. She had been driven through Severn 1 barbed-wire fences, and every bone in her body was broken.

A Wonderful Insect. LOOKS UKK A LITTLE (iltEEX liLKCTKIC LIGHT GLOBE. There exists in the tropical coun tries of America and in lha West Indies a ctirious species of inscct which the natives call "Cocuyos," meaning night light insect. This insect emits a brilliant green light from each eye »aml a green light from the under part of the stomnch. Some of the natives in Cuba, Mexi co and South America use the insect light to read by, placing about fifty of them in a long glass tube or bottle, called a "Cocu yera." —Another .'method is to hang the "Cocuycra" over one's bed and then when you want to seo the time at night, strike tlie bottle gently with the hand, when the "Cocuyos" will light up. This insect is quite harmless and inofTcnslvo and can be carried in the hand. • If its stomach is gently pressed by forefinger and thumb it will give a light like a small elec tric torch. - These peculiar insects vary in sire, but the largest come from the Province of l'inar del ttio, in Cuba, and...
