I would also submit Board's letter in reply to the proposals suggested by the council, and from a perusal of it it will be seen that the Board intends the amounts voted for main tenance to be used in the strict sense of that term, »nd not for works of construction. * Xn reference to the contract in pro gress betweea Yarragon and Moe river, the work effected since last meeting has be- n, to say the least, disappoint i'g, due mainly to the contractor's inability to obtain metal.

SOIL GERMS AND HUMUS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 April 1914

SOIL GERMS AND-HUMUS. All the varied processes tliat take place in the soil are brought about by the agency of living organisms which are continually at -work. Therefore, if this be so, we can readily understand how all-important It is that our soil should be stored with a plentiful number of healthy, active, vigorous germs of life. The soil may be rich in the raw ma terial necessary for conversion into plant food, but if the little chemical manufacturers be not present in suffi cient numbers, or be weak in vigor, there will not be a sufficient store of : finished food products awaiting t;fc.e , searching root fibres of our crops. Therefore the farmer, if he desires to grow profitable crops must see to it that the soil be in a favorable con dition to enable the germ life to carry ju their all-important work with ease and rapidity 'The essential conditions for a plen tiful supply of vigorous germ life are :i good store of humus or vegetable matter on well aerated and a well drained a...

AGRICULTURE. DEEP PLOUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 April 1914

AG R I C U LTU R E. DEEP PLOUGHING. Every farmer must be guided by the character of his own soil as to ploughing, but if your subsoil is good enough, bring up some of it to the surface soil by deeper ploughing from time to tim^ Even if your subsoil ia poor, and yolir surface soil shallow, break into the hard pan which forms by ploughing year after year to the same depth. There are paddocks from which the worked soil might be shovel led as if from an asphalted floor, through which the rain cannot find its way down, and through which in dry time the deep-down moisture caa< not rise by evaporation to feed the thirsty crop.
