A SWAMP SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914

A SWAMP SOIL. Some owners of swamp soil are puz , led by their unproduct ve charactei: when first cultivated. ` They reason that soils have been made out of: vegetation and, therefore, shoud, be able to, produce plants luxuriantly. The truth generally is that a 'ra swamp soil is in an inert condition. The air has been excluded, and acids have formed, and bacteria are not..atý work. - When the water has - beei% drawn off, the exposure of 'the, soil' to: frost after autumn ploughing id summer of thorough. tillage. does _mucli to. mend matters. A few tons of?: stable manure per acre introduce, thJ. needed bacteria. An' application ior lime .sweetens the soil. ,The.- iitre: gei in the swamp begins to gain av ailability. TT:ually, there is- great deficiency in potash,, and heavy apli plications. pay. Phosphoric acid also is needed ..The fiii t, year should b1 giveni- to some. blrtling plant like maize: that :caiin help itself to raw andt coairso' food,: and -the tillage paves tlih way .f...

The ap'. petite is diminished, and with work or pleasure, horse exertion is irksome:dur ing that period. Clipping or:' arti-: ficial. removal of the Iair accomplishes im a very short space of time what "Nature requires much more time :to do. In other words, Nature is an ticipated in her work, and the ani-; mal's system saved a. call upon it. Second.-A olipped horse is "less liable to take' cold than a long-coated horse, because the evaporation of peras piration. is more rapid. A "hot" horse will cool out" much quicker with'" a short coat. Every groom is aware. of this fact. Third.-A clipped horse requires less fuel (food) to maintain bodily heat than the long coated horse; therefore clip ping as a matter of economy should be generally practised.

A TERRIBIE SUITOR. CHAPTER XXIX. A FULL CONFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914

A TERRIBIE SUITUOi %y Mrs. Harriett Lewis, Author of "'Found Guilty," "The Double Lifr etc.) CHAPTER XXIX. A FULL CONFESSION. . For a moment, Shawcross. continued to look about him with the wild glare of a hunted beast. He did not dare to return to Maggie's chamber, less she should betray hris presence there, and deliver him up to his supposed enemies. . His one thought, his one prayer, was to see her, and beseech her to denu:. all knowledge of his whereabouts. As -he stood thus agonised, with a cold dew on his forehead, his gaze suddenly fell up6n a half open door at the right of the wide passage, and close at hand. Through the aperture he caught a glimpse of a lighted and luxurious boudoir, such as could belong alone to the mistress of the dwelling. Maggie must be within the room. She had said she was going to Lady Dunmore's apartment. It he could only see the gril, he felt sure - she could save him. These wild thoughts passed swiftly through his mind, and, with a ildd impulse to ...

SPECTRES THAT STOLE MONEY. SAVINGS CARRIED OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914

SPECTRES THAT STOLE MONEY. SAVINGS CARRIED OFF.. The way in which a French family or farmers called on "spirits" to aid them.1 in an attempt to avoid paying the rent? is causing some amlusement in Paris.'. Two brothers, named Guitton, occu-_ pied, with their wives and children, a small farm near Saint-Aniand. One day they told their neighbors of iii visible hands, which ,upset their flower pots and disarranged their gardens. Mme. Guitton, the younger, said, too; that by night she had seen through her window two black men-or demons- who walked up and down, oasting cur ses at the house. It was discovered on the.next day that the family's whole savings had disappeared. Appeal was made to the priest and to the police. But neither, the Latin of the one nor the vigilance of- the other (says the "Matin"). could' throw light upon the matter for the moment. Enquiries were continued by. the police and the "stolen" mnoney 'was found under a staircase, where: the brothers .Guitton had hidden it...

IMPORTANCE OF REGULARITY IN MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914

IMPORTANCE OF REGULARITY'. IN MILKING. :T:In1 etvory thing ,regula?'ity is, gooi: piactice, but in good dairying it is im peritive. - To produce large and rich.;i yields of milk is the sole function of the dairy cow, and to do this she must. lbe of good dairy type, fed palatabli· ! and nutritious feeds and milked cleali at regular periods. Aso a rule, the cow is milked at 5j o'clook' of mornings in summer and 5.! dr 8 o'clock in mornings in the Wiii.= ter. The very unequal periods are madei for the cow by this sun to sun milk ing, and as a consequence, the quality of her milk flow and the length of her annual period are reduced. The :ooI can do her best only when milked at,: equal and regular pericds of about 12-:1 hours each the year round. The full supply of milk is not in the: udder ready to be drawn out ,before: milking time comes, but two thirds or it is produced in the glands during' the operation of milking.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") Wheat is so much in evidence just now that it isi n accordance with the fitness of things that this column should be devoted to it this week: It is stacked in mountains at the railway stations in the centres of the cereal-pro ducing areas; it is taxing the special facilities provided for its conveyance to the,seaboard,, and is creating buzy scenes at the wharves. It is literally a golden stream that is to bring in I e turn a stream of gold. But in the midst of the satisfaction that everybody must feel at the garner ing of the good harvest, the attention directed to how much better it migiit have been is not out of place. It is in no spirit of complaint that this is emphasised. Nature has, this ye;r, on the whole, been kind to us. Th( re are, of course, some localities in which conditions have not been as favorable as could be wished, but taking things "ful. and by" the season has been boun tiful.

NIGHT IS COMING. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 22 January 1914

NIGHKT IS COMING. While the blessed daylight linger, let us work with might and main, with. our busy feet and fingers, also with the busy brain; let the setting sun be hold us tired, but filled with honest pride for the night will soon enfold us, when we lay our tools aside. When we're in the churchyard lonely, where the weeping willows lean, there's- one- thing and one thing only that will keep our memory green. If we did the tasks appointed as we lived our speed-. ing years, then our graves will be an ointed with a mourning legion's tears. All our good intentions perish when is closed the coffin lid, and the world will only cherish and remember what. we did. Nothing granite, monumental, can preserve your little fame: epitaph are incidental, and will not embalm your name. Nothing counts when. yo are sleeping, but the goodly work: you've done; that will last till gods are weeping round the ruins of the sun.
