AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 March 1914
AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. Imperfect drainage is one of the chief causes or oronard trees dying. Usuaily the grower attributes the' loss of li.s trees to every known disease before giving the drainage system rea sonable consideration. it matters not whether foot rot be in feotious or not, prevention /s better than cure, and if such sheep as are lame are removed from the hock, they can be attended to more effectually and readily, and the disease cured, more quickiy than if allowed to run with the remainder of the flock. Milk should always be heated in jack eted vessels so that it will not get burned. The praotice of introducing live! steam into milk as a means of heating is most objectionable. Sediment is often carried in the steam from the boiler, arid where water softening com pounds are used, the milk will become tainted. Milk lias a maximum viscosity at a temperature of 32 deg to t'O deg. F. As the temperature of milk lises, its vis cosity decreases. The (viscosity of milk may be demons...

CHAPTER VIII. AFTER SIX MONTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 March 1914
. CHAPTER VIII. AFTER SIX MONTHS. | It is September again. .A year has passed since the mysterious white cruiser snatched Captain Paul Vol borth from the cargo steamer in the , Pacific ; six months have rolled by since that March day when Dick Val entine disappeared from London with out leaving a trace behind him. And Dick recalls these facts as he comes ! out of a shabby lodging-house on the south side of Washington-square in ( the city of New York-, and bends his steps towards Broadway. : The history of those six months— , the pass they had brought him to— j was not written on Dick's outward appearance. He was jieatlv dressed, and well groomed, his linen was spotless, his boots and hat irrc ( proacliable. But liis thoughts were I black- and bitter, and in his eyes was , the hard, cynical look of one who . has lost' faith in human nature. ' " It was a'brief and commonplace story. With his careless temperament ( as ignorant as a child of the pro saic trade of money-making, embit , t...
CHAPTER VII. THE REJECTED PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 March 1914
CHAPTER VII. . THE REJECTED PROPOSITION. "So you are credulous already!" said Grenville. "But .y^ou can't have finished that paragraph so soon"— "That name," cried Dick. "It is amazing, wonderful ! Yet, perhaps it is no more than a coincidence !" He sat down again, and in a low. agitated voice he read the clipping aloud. It was from a London paper, nine months old, and it ran as fol lows : "An ocean mystery of the past has been strangely cleared up hy thelhiil ing of a bottle on the island of New Amsterdam, south of the Indian Ocean. Many will remember the dis appearance of the two ships Wander er and British Queen twenty-seven years ago, the latter bound from Hong Hong to London, and the for mer an armed vessel that cleared from Sydney Harbour with a pirate crew on board. Now comes confirma tion of a theory generally accepted at the time. During all these years the bottle has been embedded in the sand on the coast of New Amster dam, where it was deposited by the tide. It was tightl...

PART 6. CHAPTER XIV. THE FATE OP THE TRAITOR. The silencc lasted for probably a minute, and then Jason Gore took a step nearer the trembling wretch. "Luke Radford, you have learned how far my arm can reach'!" he said, in low, sharp tones that were intended only for his own men and the prisoner. "Fool, traitor, why did you not realise your madness before ' it was too late ?'Did you indeed hope to escape my vengeance—to evade the punishment you so richly deserve 7" "Mercy !" came in a husky whisper from the man's lips. "Shall I tell you what I know ?" Gore continued. "Listen ! You, one of my trusted agents in London, bound by oath to be true to our community, were tempted and fell. I am ignorant of the reason, but it is ' certain that you decided to sell the great secret to the Admiralty — to the British Government. However, I had mistrusted you for a long time, and you were constantly watcli-j.l by other agents of mine. You learned or suspected this before, you could carry out your t...

CHAPTER XVI. BEHIND THE FOG. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 April 1914
CHAPTER XVI. BEHIND' THE FOG. It was now but little more than, half-past ten o'clock, and within an hour the weather had changed from fair to foul, and gave promise of an ugly (lay. Murky clouds sent down a fine drizzle, and the still air was raw and cutting. A grey mist was slowly settling over the sea ; already the horizon was limited to a narrow ra dius. Tfia launch and the jolly-boat plougtied on side hj side » until they reached the point where separation was obvious. Then Montejo leaned ovpr ths gunwale towards Captain Gore. '.'You had better give me the girl," he said. j "No ; I shall keep her under my | protection," ,Gore replied. "She will j be safer. aaid#more comfortable on the I cruiser." | '-'But sorply Lucille is the "proper ' person to J(ook after her ?" "That's true," assented Gore, "and I intend that you shall transfer your sister to the cruiser at the first op portunity. But not now. I want to get away from these waters as soon as possible." "All .right," Montejo a...
CHAPTER XV. DICK'S TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 April 1914
CHAPTER XV. DICK'S TEMPTATION. Dick had heard , all the foregoing conversation, and he. realised what it meant. He knew that the pirate con templated another outrage, and one infinitely worse than the shooting of Luke Radford. j "Must I stand by and see it?" he said to himself. "They will take this ■ woman by force to the cruiser, and she is probably woli-bred and a lady. The captain is right ; she had much better be' dead than fall into such hands ! I can't play a passive part much' longer. If J had a pis.tol I should be strongly tempted to shoot that scoundrel, Jason Gore. And it plight be just as well for me, for I am a doomed man, anyway. I can't see a ray of hope in the future." At that moment there was a stir of curiosity, and Dick's comrades closed compactly in front of him, blocking his view across the deck. He shifted his position and looked. The captain was at the head of the companion way, supporting on one arm a young and most beautiful girl. Her slim figure showed. to a...
THE DAIRY. HEAVY ROOT FEEDING. EFFECT ON THE MILK YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 April 1914
THE DAIRY. 1 _ T % HEAVY ROOT FEEDING. EFFECT ON THE MILK YIELD. An experiment was recently tried by Messrs. Lauder and Fagan at Edinburgh on the effects of feeding an extra quantity of roots to milk cows with regard to the results on the milk yield. The quantity and quality ;of the milk were noted, and incident!y a test was made how fir turnips would replace the expensive food commonly used for feeding. The turnip ration was as follows per head daily Bean meal, 2fb ; bran, 2tb. ; turnips, 112Tb. ; hay, 151b. ; having an albuminoid ratio of 1 to 14. The concentrated ration was : Bean meal, v21b. ; bran, 2tb. ; peas meal, 41b. ; dried brewers' grains, 21b. ; turnips, 40tb. ; hay, 15fb. ; hav ing a ratio of 1 to .7.6. Among the conclusions arrived at is that the richest milk was. riot obtained from the ration with the largest amount of digestible fat ; that, indeed, more fat " was found in the milk than was fed in tlie rations, and that therefore the digestible carbohydrates of the fo...
VALUE OF RYE CORN. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 April 1914
VALUE OP RYE CORN. The value of rye is moat apparent after root crops have been a partial failure, and in such seasons a large area of it is sown. It relieves the strain of providing keep, and forms a connecting link be tween .winter and spring fesd. It is very- wholesome and not relaxing to the bowels like rape greens. It en courages milk in ewes and makes a pleasant change for lambs, especially if they are allowed to run forward through creeps. It is also an excel lent preparation for roots, and is grown as a catch crop between them and the previous corn crop. After it shoots into ear it ceases to be of value as sheep keep, but may be cut and carried to horses. It may even be left for seeding as a corn crop. Rye straw comes in very useful for thatching, and many farmers make a practice of sowing a small area every year in rye for the sake of the straw.
SILVER BEET AS A FORAGE PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 April 1914
SILVER BEET AS A FORAGE PLANT. The results obtained from one acre of silver beet at Belfast, near Christ church on the experimental plot6 un der the control of Mr. Macpherson, arc distinctly encouraging. A crop was sown on November 16th, and the first feeding off was made on March 19th, when 243 sheep were pnt on for 14 days, consuming in that time 51 tons. Other mobs were put on, each for 14 days, and they consumed the following quantities :—249 lambs, 18 tons ; 171 sheep, 30 tons ; 100 sheep, 27 tons ; 100 sheep, 26 tons ; . .151 sheep, 35 tons. A total of 1,014 sheep and lambs thiis .coHSiini'ekT ~2\1 tons in 84 days o5 oo« acre, thus de monstrating the wonderful growth that is made by the silver beet .and J its value as a green crop lor sheep.
THE FARM. CLOVER SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 April 1914
THE FARM. __4 CLOVER SICKNESS. The old idea that clover sickness is due to the exhaustion of some soil constituent essential for the growth of clover is now disproved (writes a contributor to the "British Journal of Agriculture"), aud it has been de finitely shown that the disease is of parasitic origin. Unfortunately, two distinct parasites are equally capable of promoting the disease—the one be ing "eel-worm," Tjlenchus devasta trir, and the other a fungus called Sclerotinia trifoliorum. Eelworm Disease. — The earliest, symptoms of the presence of the eel worm disease is a yellowing and wil ting of the leaves of small patches of clover. The patches gradually in crease in size as the disease spreads, and may be easily noticed from a distance. Eventually the leaves droop and die, leaving bare and scorched looking patches in the crop. The above symptoms also exactly des cribe the general appearance caused by the fungus—Sclerotinia trifolio rum—but the true cause of the dis ease can b...

WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP? [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD ! BE UP? It 13 a very common belief among farmers, remarks tlie "Scientific Am erican," that a post will last longer if set in the ground the reverse of the way it grew in the tree; in other words, i with the butt end up. Accordingly, ] one sees many posts, especially end and 1 gate-posts, with the small end down. The supposition is, that sap in a tree j i.-, always ascending; or, at least, that j it is easier for the sap to go up than j down. Consequently, it is argued, turning a post upside down tends to j prevent the rise of water, helps to keep | j the wood dry, and therefore renders it less liable to decay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow in either j direotion with equal facility, and the j popular notion to the contrary is in | correct. J Careful experiments on the relative durability of post umbers have been | made by the Qiiio Agricultural Experi ment Station, and the above question ' was considered. One fence in particu lar contained 15...

AFRICAN LAME SICKNESS. I Aii investigation of. the South Afri can disease known as lamziokle, or lame i siokness, suggests that it is tine to a J special plant poison that is generated ! under abnormal conditions in grasses or other [Wants that are normally harm less. Its development seems to be as- , sociated with unusual weather and soil experiences, of which summer drought is important. Through such conditions wilting would favour the formation of the poison, and this gives explanation J for the common belief that the disease results froin eating wilted plants. •* Chicago recently passed a bye-law re- I quiring all windows in tall office builtl } ings to be so constructed as to be wash able from the inside..
