It does an act of tardy justice to land owners who have been put to losses through their properties 'adjoining vermin in fested Crown lands. The Crown, in a grudging manner, has always re cognised the hardship of private own ers being forced to suppress vermin Swhile the Crown acknowledge no such responsibility. Hitherto this was admitted in a way by the govern ment supplying wire netting to such landowners at 80 per cent of its cost. In this the Crown did not assume its full share of the joint duty. It con tributed 20 per cent. of the cost of the wire netting The amending Act, which has now become law, enacts that the-Government will contribute half the cost of the netting. The prt vate land owner has still to erect the fences at his own cost, and pay halt the cost of the netting. There is a great deal of...

Improvement of Poor Hill Pasture. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914

Improvement of Poor Hill Pastu re. There are few aricultural problems oi more importance at the present time tihan the improvement of the poor hill pasture, which forms such a large proportion of the total area of the cotuntry (says the Mark Lane Ex press). How can this be done? The question is complicateu by the facts that (1) the cost of improvement is often relatively great, owing to the inaccesability of the grazing; (2) in many cases, climatic conditions res trict not only the growth of herbage, but also the grazing season ; (3) there are many distinct types of herbage- dependent, doubtless, on soil, climate, and general conditions. It follows, from these considerations that the question is a tliflicult one from an economic standpoint; at the same time--according to the view expres sed in a recent. Board of Agricultural leaflet No 275-there are large areas of fairly accessible poor hill pastures which are not as productive as they might be, or as they used to be with in quite r...

The Worst Cook. Not only are Englishwoiien the worst cooks; they are the most ex travagant cooks. They actually be lieve that there must be a certain am ount of waste in cookery. The dust bins of London are mute witnesses to the wicked and shameless waste that goes oie in our kitchens. Sometimes as I pass along the street and look at them in the early morning I wonder that an angry God does not visit us with pestilence as a punishment for exhibitions of mouldy bread, sour po tatoes, ends of meat and fish in these recptacles. Two persons - one. o, them doing the cooking in "a tasteful, economic manner, can have the dain tiest, most delicious and nourishing food in great variety . on 10/ a week in London, even with the preserit high prices. It takes thought, it takes care, it takes common sense, and Ic takes time. These are things, the average Englishwoman refuses to give to her pireparation of food, and therefore a woman of many, gifts and graces in other directions, she is the worst...

Cleanliness is essential in the poul try-house. If the male bird is sickly neeve' breed from him. Hlens are not profitable after ,the=' second laying season. Green feed should be fed every day in ungrassed runs. The Wyandotte is a great forager and an economical breed. Plymouth Rocks and Orpingtons are classed as first-rate utility birds. Separate the male bird from the flock till eggs are required for hatching. Crush the eggshells up. Never throw them out whole in the poultry yard. Lime, or better still, old mortar, should always be placed in the stud breeding pens. You can't keen chicks in health with out grit. You can't get eggs from food that produces fat.
