FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 17 February 1914

FERTILISERS OK-MEADOWS. The Agricultural Department of t!ic Swiss Government' have just published an interesting report of experiments conduoted over three years to test'the effect of different fertilisers on nic"d<nv land. Tho fertilisers experimented with were nitrogen, phosphate of lime, ami potash, tho fertilisers being tried plone and mixed. The eoucluMun arrlvul ut is that, in order to obtain the heaviest and most profitable crops, it is n< o:s sary to supply fertilisers containing the three principal fertilising substances phosphoric acid, potash, and nitrogen. Tho extra yield obtained from this sys tem of manuring covers iho cost of the fertilisers and' leaves a good profit. Tho effect of tho manure.-; is more mirk ed on tho first cutting than on the scojnd cut, the average increase hav ing been found to be from G2 to 100 per cent, on tho former, and 20 to 40 per cent, on tho second crop.

NOISELESS CITY STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 17 February 1914

NOISELESS CITY STREETS. Thcro is coming into use in Germany a cheap and ready method of asphalting a stone-jjaved street which is showing good results. The j»pace. bet\voen pav ing blocks arc cleaned out to tho depth of about an inch, and then a layer of melted asphalt is flowed over tho street surface, the depth of the layer being about ono inch. Beforo it is cooled, sand is sprinkled on and tho surfaeo *s ,-moothed. At Frankfort, a section of tliis kind is now laid, and it appoars to stand tho wear remarkably well. Should tho method provo a success i\. general practice it will nfiord an exoot lent means of deadening tho noiso of city traffic at a small expenso.
