THE BEEKEEPER SWARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
THE BEEKEEPER SWARMS. One of the first axioms in bee-keeping is that timely care and attention are necessary to prevent swarming, as un less these are bestowed at the exact time no amount of after-treatment will remedy the mismanagement, and where swarms are not required, they are a source of great annoyance, in volving unprofitable labor in returning them (writes the "Journal of Horticul ture"). ' The principal things which govern swarming are now fairly well under stood, the conditions necessary for their issue being a honey flow, all combs completed and packed with bees and brood, advancing from the egg to maturity, and the presence of queen cells. Being packed with bees in a titrie of scarcity is insufficient to bring a swarm off, and from this it would appear that! honey flow and crowded condition of a colony are the strongest factors. It is well known that the smallest skeps are the. most productive of swarms. Differences of opinion have prevailed as to the relative efficacy o...

Size of Draught Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
Size'of-Draught Horses. ProfessorHunt recently gave a leciuiu to a number of stock breeders In America, and tola them that as It had come In his way to make a good many measurements o£ imported draught horses it had struck him that it would be of interest, and perhaps of value, to go morn fully Into a comparison of the conformation of draught horses in actual" work. He therefore arranged for cor rect measurements to be taken of 101 horses, and as It would cause some in convenience to go into country districts among the tarm horses, he decided to take the measurements of the horses at work in a large town In the State of Ohio. In that town there were large breweries and carrier companies, and these people kept the best heavy horses in their business, both as an advertise ment and for utility. He bad 101 o£ tWe best and largest draught horses in the city carefully measured, but before be ing measured, he got them classified by the owners, or by the stable formen into extra good, mediu...

THE MACRAE CO. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
THE MACRAE CO. An apparently simple incident in 1868 led to the establishment of a house whose name became later i indelibly impressed upon the pro- j duce trade of this State. In that year the late Alexander Macrae of ' Dunmore, Largs, was consigning very prime lucerne hay to Sydney, where agents were quoting £3 per ton, returning however only £2 10s. Mr. Macrae's son, Myles, noting this, informed his father that next time hay was shipped he would go to Syd ney and sell it himself. The senior replied characteristically, " Tut, mon ! you don't know you are born yet! " The hay was consigned from "order" to "order" for obvious reasons, and young Myles came to Sydney and sold it for £3 cash and returned home. Some of their neigh bours learning of the incident, told him to go back and sell their potatoes and onions. Myles had just been engaged with James Larkin, an Indian Mutiny pensioner, in press ing 1,000 tons lucerne hay for which they received 6s. per ton for pressing. On thinking ...
SCARCITY OF CHAFF IN SYDNEY MARKETS. The Reason Why. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
SCARCITY OF CHAFF IN SYDNEY MARKETS. The Reason Why. Mr. R. J. Mulholland, one of the produce auctioneers of Sussex Street, who recently made a tour through the Riverina, says, in reference to the supply of trucks by the Railway department for the conveyance of produce, .that his inspection dis closed a state of affairs which is hard to understand or reconcile. " At a number of country stations, stacks of chaff are lying in the rail way yards, on vacant allotments in the town, and in the paddocks ! where the chaff-cutting was done— due wholly to the refusal of the railway authorities to supply trucks for the carriage of chaff. As a result the market has advanced from 15s. to £1 a ton, and this has to be borne by tlw consumers. Then, again, thousands of pounds' worth of damage has been done to the chaff which has been tied up at these country stations for lack of trucks, j Much of it has been saturated by the past few weeks' rain. The I farmers have to bear the loss. " Is it essentia...

Humus and Soil Fertility. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
Humus and Soil Fertility. The following Is a summary o£ the re lation of humus to soil fertility, as given in the U.S. Year Book of Agriculture:— 1. The decline in the crop-producing power of many soils is due to a loss 01 the partially decomposed animal and vegetable matter known as humus. 2. The humus of the soil is decreased by; the continuous cultivation of grain, cotton, potatoes, or any crop with which the land is kept constantly under the dough without addition of any humus forming materials. 3. The loss of humus involves a l&'s of the nitrogen, which is one of thfS£>jele ments composing humus. Thajfjloss 'of nitrogen from the soil is not always duV simpiy to the nitrogen removed by the crop, but is frequently caused by waste of the humus by improper methods and systems of cultivation. 4. The humus of the soil is increased by the use of well-prepared farm manures, and by a systematic rotation of crops in which grasses, or preferably clover, form an important part. ...

FARM AND FIELD. Watering Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
Watering Horses. Opinions probably differ more 011 tne ■subject of water for horses than on any other part of their treatment, and owners, breeders, and grooms are never likely to agree as to whether it is bet ter that they should bo watered before or after feeding', 'This subject, therefore, need not be discussed here, but some thing may be said regarding the advi sability o£ allowing- a heated animal to drlnlc copiously of cold' water when he comes in from work. Of course there are 110 two opinions regarding the in advlsability of letting a horse drink '.much at a time when he is on a journey; but it is when the work is completed and the animal Is hot that some opinions differ. Some excellent authorities con tend that a long Sraught will not harm the horse, but the majority entertain a contrary view. It is always wiser, there fore, to be on the safe side, and to avoid risks of colic or the horse over-gorging himself with fluid. It may also be re membered that one or two or more sh...

BUILDING IMPERIALLY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
BUILDING IMPERIALLY. It Is surely time that the citizens of the chief city of the greatest Empire in the world thought something of Im periiil expression, and learned to build Imperially, to provide something that Britons from the country or the Colo nies "could happily regard as befitting the splendid capital of a splendid Em pire. The rich English now make their money in England to spend it abroad, and the poor English buy their com modities abroad for use, in England.i Which is the most excusable? Of the future it Is Idle to speak; but, at the beginning of the twentieth cen tury, may we not admit that the typical art of the nineteenth century, the art for which It is most likely to be remem bered. has been the art, musical and dramatic, of Richard YVngno.r? -'Arthur Symons, In the "Quarterly Review,"
