PEAS AND OATS FOR A FODDER CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 3 September 1881

I li ive. grown such fodder for sev ral years, and am now feediug it with other fod 1er to the cattle and horses. -They seem to like it very well, au I to do well on it. Peas and o-its pow» together will make much more and hetter fodder than oats alone. It is a bulky crop, and the amount tuat can he grown on one acre is surprising. If laud is very rich it will lodge bally, and I think it not desirable to apply much manure to the crop if tlie land ; is i.i fair condition. It is better to crop wah the peas and oats, and apply the manure to the succeeding crop. lt is al><> a very poor cr>p to feed gra<s w'.th, because "t /rows so thick and lodges, so.newhe.t smothering the .tender grass out, if sown with n.

He says: -" Choose a noe day, when the land is tolerably riry, but when there are iivlic itio.ns of approaching rain.

THE SCAVENGER. Be tilm familiar, but by no means vulgar." THE i'entity nf the S caven rer seems as grea: a puzzle as ever to most friends It is rather amusing to see a noted auctioneer, a pill-pounder, and a mild-looking, red-headed youth of the teaching profession, severally pounced on by the speculative. Byron telks in " Don Juan" of death being drunk with gore. We might change his thought slightly and say " Pleasure is drugged with, sport in our district at present.*' Tile races parsed off satisfactorily to those who won, and I suppose, had au opposite effect on losers. Not being an advocate for crue,ty, I did not visit the coursing. For my part I can amuse myself as much in viewing a mastiff'chase n cat, as in being a spectator to a hare butchery; for the cat will show fight occasionally. No imiic did 1 attend the ball on tiie 'loth, but I dreamt of it, which i- just as good. I successfully viewed the t ff 'initiate youth smirking at the buxom lass of talent ; the sheepish wall-...
