THE FARM. AVAILABILITY OF FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 March 1914
AVAILABILITY OF FERTILISERS. The value of a fertiliser for crops does not depend on its total per centage of ammonia, phosphate of lime and potash, but upon the per cent age of those constituents that tho growing- crop can utilise. This i.s the point that a farmer has to look at. when considering the effi cacy of an artificial manure. Thore are a good many substances that cont ain a high percent ago of one or the other fertilising constituents but the constituents are in such an inert form that they afford little or no nourishment to the crop. They "analyse well," but are bad fertilisers. A glaring instance of this class of substanco (the "SInrk Lane Express" points out) is ground leather. It contains n very large percentage of ammonia, but decom poses so slowly that it has no right to the title "fertiliser." The plant asks for food and is given not ex actly a stone, but something near ly as hard. With the present sys tem of intensive cultivation, in which large quantities of expens...

No Crowding. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 March 1914
No Crowding, 1 A travelling showman had a par rot, which was accustomed to imi tate his voice and words "when he _was addressing- the crowd about his tent, and always created much amusement by doing so. In the course of man's wanderings they came to a fanning" region, and here one day the parrot escaped and took to the fields. The show man organised a posse of men and boys, and went In pursuit of tho fugitive. After a good deal of vain search, they heard a great clamour in a tall tree on the edge of a wood. Creep ing up to the place, they found that the poor parrot was up in the tree, stripped of most of his fea thers, and surrounded by a flock of screaming rooks, who wore picking at him mercilessly. In the midst of it all the parrot was calling out, at the top of his voice : "One at a time, gentlemen ! Don't crush so, please ! Take your time ! There's plenty of room! Take your time*!''

Near the mouth of the shaft is a large walk ing-beam engine. To the rim of the flywheel of this engine (says "Popular Mechanics") a driving rod is attached, and by means of a pivoted connection, the motion of the wheel is transmitted to a ver tical lifting rod in the mine shaft, as shown in the illustration. The lifting rod has a vertical move ment of 12 ft. At intervals of 12ft. platforms are supported- both on the lifting rod and on the side of the shaft, and the sets of plat forms are so arranged us to be at the same level at the -high and low position of the rod. In descending, tlio miner steps on tlio '-moving', platform when it is" at the end of the \ip-stroke, and is carried down 12ft.

This Narrow, quiet, fifty-j'ards cul-de snc is the most famous street in the world ; its name is known and re spected in all the great Chancel lories and embassies ; it is part of the pilgrimage of the globe-trotter; vol the average Londoner passes it daily without noting that he does, so. The life of Downing Street dates back to 1663,-when the baronet of that name built the houses that yu>\v represent the official residences of the Prime Alinister and the Chan cellor of the Exchequer. Its memo ries make an imperishable landmark in the record of British history. The only meeting between Welling t'Mi and r^o'son took place in this street.
