Christian Endeavour Union Rally. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 23 January 1914

Christian Endeavour Union Rally. The annual rally in connection with the Kerang District C.E Union was held in the local Methodist Church on Wed nesday, the president of the union-the Rev T. J. Payne-presiding. There was only a moderate attendance, no represen- tatives from the Barraport or Cohuna societies-on account of harvesting operations and sickness-being pre- sent, consequently the executive coun- cil did not hold their annual business meeting. At the afternoon meeting papers were read from the Cohuna Me thodist, Barraport Baptist, Kerang Bap tist and Methodist societies on Dr Trum ble's book '" Taking, Men Alive." The evening meeting was presided over by the vice-president--Rev. T. P. Trinham, and after short addresses by the chairman and Rev Mr Payne, the meeting was thrown open to praise and testimony by the members. During the service Miss Byers rendered a solo very nicely, and the Misses Payne sang a duet in nice style. The executive council meeting will be held in the B...

CLOVER A SOIL IMPROVER. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 27 January 1914

CLOVER A SOIL IMPROVER. Clover is tle best soil improver, be cause it better fills the soil with roots, which decay and fill the soil with hu mus. The clover belongs to the class ot plant which are nitrogen gatherers. Clover feeds or mineral matter in the soil, and nitrogen in the air out of the reach of crops. The. clover is a more valuable food than most grasses, be cause it contain3 more piotein; the manure is more valuable than from Timothy hay, and the roots left in the ground contain so much nitrogen that when we can grow clover successfully we are on tile ?way to solve the most difficult problems of farihing. Farm ers who stop growing clover are mak ing a great mistake, and they should study the plant and how to grow it. The main cause of clover not growing well is lack of lime in the soil. There is nothing of such importance as get ting back to clover-growing. Organic matter in the clover is the farmer's bank account, and clover best4furnish es it. Lime and good tillage will...

IRRIGATION PRACTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 27 January 1914

IRRIGATION PRACTICE. To secure a proper amount of water in the subsoil, so that plants can use it by capillary action;-should be aimea at by the irrigation farmer. The sub soil is the reservoir. A few light show ers of rain on a grain crop is not much sce. When there is moisture in the second or third feet of soil, a small irrigation puts tle soil in splendid con dition. The flooding system of irrigation is the only practical one for such crops as lucerne and grain crops, which, it may be said, cover the vwhole of the ground. Orchards, vineyards, vegetables, or any crops planted in lows are irrigated by means of furrows. The application oi the water in this manner may not be found so difficult as that of flooding. but there are many features in irriga ting by furrows which require care and close attention on the part of the irri gator to secure th/ best results, or. in fact, to obviate doing positive harm to fruit trees or other crops coming within the operation. Many experiments in...

BENEFITS OF IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 27 January 1914

BENEFITS OFR IRRIGATION. The extraordinary yield and other beneficial effects on agriculture that have followed a proper system of-irri gation in various parts of the \-orld, have been so marked it is a wonder that in many places in this State, where there ali abundant possibilities ot water supply, more advantage has not been taken of irrigation. The large oeps on many varied soils, following wc-seasons, ought to be an object-les son, the value of which should not be rejected. But there is the fear that, in many cases, it will have the con trary effect-that Nature, having given an exceptional quantity of water on one occasion, the farmer will rest sat isfied-that this will recur in the future. Instead of taking advantage of the fact that he could himself ensure a pro per watcr supply, it is thought piob able that he will still continue to leave the efficient watering of his land to chance. But the object-lesson of a wet season should not really be re quired, because it was only nec...

THE AWAKENING OF FOGGY [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 27 January 1914

THE AWAKENING OF FOGGY By Vincent Ems. It is possible to be very, very clever and very, very green-a real' verdant green. It is also possible to ripen un expectedly. Then there is trouble for someone-as Mr. Frederick Gan ton, otherwise Foggy, could tell you now. Mr. F. O. Q. was twenty seven-a sufficiently mature age-and lie dealt in all the "c's"-carbon, crystals, chem istry, crucibles, and so forth-with all the enthusiasm of an amateur and all the luck of a beginner. He rediscorered several processes on which fortunes had been made and lost, -and of which the master patents had. long since expired, nor was he un duly depressed at finding that he had been anticipated by a period nearly equal to the tale of his yeirs. Ho was not careful in the selection of his pa tent agent, and it is regrettable to state that that gentleman took Foggy's fees, and broke the news of the afore said anticipation afterwards. But in between these excellent and belated discoveries lie hit upon others, ori...

THE SHADOWS FROM THE PAST. c By Oswald Clifford. t Wilfrid Desmond pushed away the t last paper that had demanded his at tention. an intricate estimate on which t his mairid had been closely centred for 1 the past hour, and, rising from his desk I staird out through the old-fashioned, I dliamond paned window on to the busy 1 HiTh-street of this thriving market 4 to"'1n to which he had himself drifted five years ago, from nowhere, it seem ed. Aend now between him and the busy street, another vision seemed to rise a pieture of the past, a vision of hide ously-garbcd men at work in Portland quarries beneath the watchful gaze of Iarmed wardcrs, and amongst -those branded man-himself. "I wonder what these respected citi zens would say if they knew the truth ?" lie mused, rather grimly, as lie glanced down at the thronged street, for it was market day and the little town was crowded. "I suppose they would drive me from out their midst, regard me as a pariah. And yet I have worked no harm ...
