REGISTRATION OP GRADE COWS. AN ASSOCIATION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
REGISTRATION OP GRADE COWS. • AN ASSOCIATION WANTED. There is an opportunity (remarks "Hoard's Dairyman") to establish registries for grade stock of the dif ; ferent breeds where records are re quired before animals are admitted to registration. For instance, a grade cow five years or more that has pro duced 360M). of fat would be eligible to registration, but her progeny could not be registered until it had made the required amount of fat. If this sort of a registry were estab lished it would mean the elimination of all poor producing animals and wouM in time produce an exceptional \ dairy bread, for it would only be a i matter of time when all inferior ani- | mals would be eliminated. I An association for the above pur pose would be of immense benefit to , the dairying industry, and would in no way be antagonistic to the good work the special breed associations ( are doing. The producing power of a j cow is, after all, the real test of her j value, and any movement to increase her...

THE INVENTION OF THE STUSViP JUtVlP PLOUGH. iVii\ il. JB. Smith, to whom Austra lian agriculturists are deeply indebted, recently wrote m reply-to 'a letter ot congratulation, as foUows :—"I shall be lo yearn of age on 2nd September, and my dear old wife will be 70 on Uih : January next. iou might let the peo . pia oi South Australia know that am still alive and going strong. They used to .say 'tiiat 1 would die in a madhouse ior thinking that I could fashion a plough that would jump stumps." Although, from time to time, (.says the "Scottish Farmer''), 'there have been several claimants for the honor of having originated the stump-juniper, it is generally acknow ledged that "The Vixen," turned out in Juno, 1S76, by Mr. Smith (who m the designing and making of the im plement had "the valuable assistance of j his brother, Mr. C.

THE POULTRY FARM. CLEAN EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
THE POULTRY FARM. CLEAN EGGS. In order to have clean eggs it b necessary to have clean nests. Nesti should be lined with clean straw. W&lt; have tried various kinds of nests, in eluding several patent sanitary nesti and have yet to find one that is self cleaning. After years of experiment ing along this line we have at las&lt; come to what I call a solution of tin problem. We are now using wire screen bottom nests entirely, and they are giving perfect satisfaction. Not only are they self-cleaning but they are also better in the respect that eggs do not get nearly so cast ly broken in them. We use one-fourth-iDCh galvanised wire screening, and tack it on to the bottom of the nests where the boards ordinarily go. These wire-bottom nests .also make it, much easier to. keep the nests free from lice or mites. To our way of thinking it is by fai the very best nest for laying hens. For sitting hens we do not recom mend it because the eggs in it evapo rate \too much. Gather ...

HOW TO MAKE A FLY-TRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
HOW TO MAKE A FLY-TRAP. An ingenious dairyman has con structed a home-made fly-trap which he has found effective in ridding his place of business of the pests. Tbe trap is made from a box lift. long,,, lft. high, and 1ft. wide, both the sides and the top being: sawn out and covered with wire netting. The box is then raised about a foot from the floor, and the neck of a large funnel is run up through the bottom of the 'box arid adjusted tight, so that the mouth of the funnel is about an inch from the floor. A saucer of molasses or something: sweet to draw the flies is set under the mouth of the funnel, leaving room for the flies to go up the funnel and into the box. As soon as the box is filled the flics are drowned, and the process repeated. "Now this," said the barber, hold ing up a pink bottle, "is a splendid thing for baldness." " Thank you," replied his victim, coldly. "I have all the baldness 1 re quire."
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
■'MELSftURNE LETTER (From our Special OorrcbpondeuL.) An industry which is" not new, but which seams to be developing, has been muoh in evidence lately. Lt is that in which ladies more ore less young, sow harrowing tales ot blighted hopes and mangled affections into the oars of sympathetic jurymen,' and reap sub stantial crops in the shape of damages. Like all enterprises that open up pros pects of big easy money—to wit, pic ture shows, dance halls, aud Tango teas—this will probably be exploit _d for all it is worth. But the field for it is not likely to' remain easy. Like * the wild duck a few days after the opening of the season, th/j quarry is likely to become wary. I-t, therefore, does not'oall for an altogether absurd stretch of imagination to carry us for ward to the time, when th>3 stationers will stock, in addition to the custom ary forms, for -making a will and such like, blank agreement forms which can readily be.filled in'with a fountain.pen or indelible pencil, by the...

CHAPTER XIX. THE MATE OF THE ROATHCEA. It was a big drop from the bul- ! wark of the King of Troy, and Dick ; went far under "wten.be struck. There \ was a buzzing in his ears, and a j flash of pale light before his eyes. But he was a good swimmer, and he | held his breath while he made ener- ! getic use of hands and feet. He came ! quickly to the surface, filled his ? lungs, and looked eagerly round. The j sea was still boiling and heaving j from the effects of the explosion, and he was down in a trough of the waves. The next instant he was flung [ up on a curl of foam, and he saw ! Lucille Montejo's head and trailing } ■Mack hair within a few feet of ■ him. By fast and hard strokes Dick cleav- • ed a way through the billows. He reached the girl and slipped one arm round her. She struggled in his grasp and tried to turn and clutch him with her hands. This increased the danger of the situation tenfold, and Dick nearly lost hope. j "Keep cool .' Don't take hold of me " he cried. "I£ ...
CHAPTER XVIII. THE RETREAT FROM THE YACHT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
CHAPTER XVTir. THE RETREAT FROM THE YACHT. The devastating eBcct of the pir ate's two shots was correctly gauged by Captain Gore on the instant that he saw them strike, and knowing that the man-of-war's progress was checked, he acted with his usual promptness and decision. Hastening to the bridge, he rang his hell hard, and shouted a couple of orders. The steam was shut off, and the ridges of foam fell away from the bow, the King of Troy lay gracefully and at ease on the swell. By this time the man-of-war was laying-to, and it was apparent to all that she was out of action and badly crippled. The tumult that then burst from end to end of the cruiser's deck was dreadful. Frantic with savage exultation, the horde of pirate ruffians screeched and clam oured until they were hoarse. From the bridge, with a fiendish smile on his face, Captain Gore looked down upon his motley crew. And to f>ick, as he listened to the din and gazed out over the water, the moment was a black and bitter on...

(All Rights Reserved.) ft Story of a Strange and Exciting Adventure. ♦ By W. Murray Graydon, Author of 'Matthew Quin," "The Curse of the Cardews," et'c., etc. PART 7. CHAPTER XVII. THE BATTLE OF THE TITANS. The excitement ou the cruiser was now intense. Men clamoured and cursed, and Captain Gore, looking from the bridge through his glasses, uttered a frightful oath. Then, all at once, the .tumult faded and there was a 'brief moment of awed silence. For the mystery had been revealed. The banks of mist, rolling -wider apart, disclosed a great white steamer a quarter of a mile beyond the yacht, and but a short distance astern of her. The strange ship bristled with a wealth of armament, and men were . crowded on her deck. And by more than one sign she was promptly re cognised as an American man-of-war. The discovery, of course, was mu tual. The yacht bore on rapidly, and left an open stretch of sea, half a mile wide, between the two big crui sers. They were now abreast, of each other, a...
FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. The .Agricultural Department of tho Swiss Government have just published an interesting report of experiments conduct; d over three years to test the eHec't of different fertilisers on nie:ulow" land. Tho fertilisers experimented with were nitrogen, phosphate of lime, and potash, tho fertilisers being tried alono nnd mixed. The conclusion arrived at ,-s that, in order to obtain the heaviest ;>nd most profitable crops, it is neoi'S snry to supply fertilisers containing tha three principal fertilising substances— phosphoric acid, potash, and nitrogen. Tho i-xtra yield obtained from this sys tem of manuring covers the cost of the fertilisers and leaves a good profit. Tho effect of tho manures is more mark ed on the first cutting than on the second cut, the overage increase hav ing been found to be from 62 to 100 per cent, on the former, and 20 to 40 per cent, on the second crop,

Sixty seven other growers exported between ihein 32,-1 Go and their individual average net re turn for the season on Hobart wharf ranged from 3 9 to 5/}» per case.
