WHEN AND HOW TO FILL TH, SILO. • e quality of silage is determinled to a great extent by the conditiont of the maize when cut and the care used in filling the silo. -The question ot the proper time to out maize and store in the silo has been much discussed and studied. Experience and careful study of results show that thb best silage is made from maize that is cut and put into the silo at the time the kernel dents and begins to haiden. At this stage the maize has practically attainled maturity(, and its full maturity is de veloped. This, of oourse, will de pened to some degree on the kind of maize which is grown. Some varieties of maize dent easier than others, ani care should be taken not to let the maize. become too dry. Dry maize fodder does not pack and exclude the air.as well as that which contains a donsiderable amount of moisture.

Seymour Police Court MIONDAY,. ]EBRUARY 2. (Before Mr-Knight, P.M., and Mr Boddy, J.P.) The business transacted at the court oil Mondlly was of a Ilostun usual nature so far as this district is concernedr , and was therefore of more than ordinary interest. The first case was that of an elector who was proceeded against for not having his namne placed on the roll although he had been in Seymour four months.

The second case was that of a clanim under the Wages Board, in which a verdict was givei for the amount claimed, particulars of which a e reported below.

' It is the home which moulds the minds of our boys and girls-- honmeo in fluence, Lorne example, Mothers and lathers should never-forget that dur ing the'first years of their boys' and girls' lives they look up to their par ents as hods--to be obeyed, to be imni tated in all things.

American View of British Farming. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914
American View of British Farming. An American; who recently visite. England has nothing but praise for the rural scenes, the superb apstures, and high quality stock, both purebred and grade. Tho.hodspitality of the people of rural Britain is without bounds, and in saying that the American only en dorses colonial experience. Having said the nice things, the American gives some praotical criticisms on the meth ods of doing certain kinds of work on the farm, which do not come up to the American, or even colonial standard. In Lancashire, he saw men raking hay They had-a lumbering hay-rake, out of all proportion heavy. Two mel were raking. They had two big, heavy horses. They were going tandem. A big man was riding the first horse, and a second mah was driving the scoond horse.- In America, a boy twelve years old with a light horse and a light American sulky rake would do as much as both those big men and big horses would accomplish. In other places h· saw gangs of-men turning and shakin...

There has just died in Mantuna a farmer, nahmed Annibale Tosci, who had become a prosperous man without any ,Iffr ?rt. oPmov'ranme. or toil.

Furs Preserved by Cold [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914
Furs Preserved by Cold When the "lifo" of a fur garment is considered in relation to its cost, the economical quality is a high one, par ticularly to-day, when science has effec ted so perfect a preserver as cold-stor age. . This development of presorva tion, which actually arrests natural deterioration caused by evaporation of the natural oil in the leather and hair of furs .in temperate and hot atmos pheres, apart from the immunity it provides against ravages by moths, prolongs the life of the oommodity sn a wonderful dlegree. - This advantage -alone, compensates for a great deal of. the recent rise in values. Further, the depth of color and gloss in the fur is -more enduring by'many years than:it was -under the warehousing conditions of bhygone days.
