MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 March 1914

MELBOURNE LETTE1 (From Our Special Correspondent) Who shall longer contend that wo men should not have a say in the mak ing oi laws, and generally regulating matters pertaining to the public weal? The fourteenth annual conference of the Australasian Wotnen'p Association has shown, them capable of taking very sane views of questions that are in the forefront of progressive measures for the betterment of people and institu tions. Eugenics, than which there is nothing more important among the developments of modern striving for greater efficiency was handled in a commendablv cominou sense manner. The need for a wider knowledge of the ravages of a disease which is respon sible for the condition of 75 per cent, of the inmates of Victorian asylums, and which in other respects contributes to an immeasurable extent to the mis ery and unfitness of humanity, was re cognised by these ladies. And there were many other similar matters dis cussed, and the discussions disclosed a breadth of outloo...

MILKING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 March 1914

MILKING MACHINES. The New York experiment station ! at Geneva follows the experiment stations of some of the other States | in an endorsement of the practicabil ity of machine milking. During the past five years the station has used a popular make that is on the mar ket and a careful record has been made of its work. Surely this ought to be a thorough test, and when the machine milking is endorsed on such a basis it should carry a lot of weight with those dairymen who have been waiting for years for the satisfaction that will come to them once they are able to get away from hand milling. "The Review" was the first of American dairy papers to express its faith in milking machines, upholding the idea when others unhesitatingly condemned them. Our faith in the triumph of the mind over mechanical problems is always on the side of : mind, and ten years a:go when we ob- j served intelligent dairymen, and es pecially the experiment stations, get ting satisfactory results from them, we were...

NEW WIRELESS WONDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 March 1914

NEW WIRELESS WONDERS. The "wireless compass" or direction finder, marks almost as great a step forward in the new era of navigation as the discovery of the ordinary 00111 pass did iu the old. An oiiicuil at Marconi House stated recently that there Here two ways in which, the new invention would be of great use. Sup posing that a cargo ship had broken down and was adrift in mid-ocean. Jr, owing to cloudy or l'oggy weather, sun, moon, and stars had not been visible for two or three days, the captain would not know exactly where he was. He could not tell by wireless to any .•,vould-be rescuer precisely in whion direction to steam. But if a slnp litted with a direction finder came along then she would be able to find out where the vessel in distress was in relation to herself, and so be able to race to the rescue, so long as she re ceived signals. The second principal iu.e for the finder was that of discover ing a ship's position with regard to any coast station. When approaching the sh...

NIAGARA'S RIVALS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 March 1914

NIAGARA'S RIVALS. When an idea becomes firmly rooted in the minds of the general.public.it is hard to disturb. .. Ask. the next friend or acquaintance you meet whiich is the greatest waterfall in the world, and he is almost certain -to reply,, without the slightest hesita tion, "Niagara." As a matter of fact, Niagara does not hold the palm by any means. The Victorfa Falls in Certtral Africa, are quite a'hundred feet higher than Nia gara. In the neighbourhood of Bra maputra, too, is - an enormous series of falls, by which a vast river des cends over a mile in a very short length of its course ; but this tre mendous waterfall is in the almost inaccessible heights of the Himalayas In British Guiana a fall has been discovered . of recent years with a sheer drop of 300ft. — nearly twice that of the higher of Niagara's two 'falls. In British Guiana, too, there is another fall more than 600ft. deep. The American Fall at Niagara is 1,060ft. wide, and the somewhat shal low water falls some 1...

A POTTERY FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 March 1914

] A POTTERY FAIR. J At the present time, Germany is far ahead of England in the matter of ad vertising pottery manufactures. Buy ers from all parts of the world, and especially from the United States, re pair every year to the great pottery exhibition at the Leipzig Fair, and each of these annual fairs, it is estimated, leads to the sale of a million and a half pounds worth of German ware. German exports of pottery to the Uni ted States are at the present time double those from Great Britain. But signs are not lacking that Bngiish j manufacturers are waking up to their behind-hand methods, and the North Staffordshire potteries have so- far real ised the value of such exhibitions as the Leipzig Fair, as to inaugurate an annual fair of British pottery and glass manufactures, the first to be held at Stoke, next month. The Stafford shire manufacturers maintain that i since the days of Wedgwood, their pot tery has been as good as, if not better than, any in the world. They main tain that...

THE FARM. WORN-OUT GRAZING LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 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 bo readily solved. Old grass lands have become 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 ? Simplj 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 applied 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 be gaine...

LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 March 1914

LUCERNE. Lucernc is talked of more than ever now at our dairy meetings. It is a well kmown fact that it furnishes the cheapest source of protein of any ; roug.hage grown. One thing strongly ; emphasized by the experts is that it j will not start, under the ordinary j conditions usually given other crops by farmers. Quite contrary to the prevalent opinion, it needs a rich, sweet, thorcV'rhh cultivated, well 1 drain'ed soil ... the beginning. When once started it lias been found to be one of the easiest crops to grow ever kmown. After a field is well set it does not require as much care, and as one farmer said at a recent meet ing, "the more you abuse it then, the better it does. "—"Jersey Bulle-1 tin." 1918.

Now, I am no Puritan as regards dress, but I think that every woman should suit hsr costume to her circumstances. Bi zarre dress has charms., but it must be given its surrounding.

SULPHUR AS A FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 19 March 1914

SULPHUR AS A FERTILISER. Experiments carried out both in Ger many and in France confirm recent re ports as to the fertilising action of flow ers of sulphur upon the soil. In the German trials a dressing of 90 lb per acre, applied in February, a short time before the crops were sown, had a beneficial effect upon barley and rye. The treated portions of the crops were stronger, and had a brighter green co lor than the untreated; but no account of the difference in yield is given. The French experiments were intended to throw light upon the cause of the fer tilising action of sulphur. The causo has been said to be the destruction of injurious bacteria .in the soil, and the conclusion of the investigators, agrees that this is partly the case. But it is concluded also that the chemical action of the sulphur has some effect. Sul phuric acid is gradually formed, and this not only suphes sulphur to the plants, but also helps to dissolve mineral ele ments in the soil.
