VALUE OF RYE CORN. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 April 1914
. VALUE OF RYE CORN. The value of rye is most 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 feed. 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 arc allowed to rim forward through creeps. It is also an excpl lent preparation for roots, and is grown as a catch crop l>etween them and the previous corn crop. After it shoots into ear it ceases to be of value as sheep keep, but m iy he cut and carried to horses. It may even be left for seeding as a corn crop. Rye straw comes in very useful for thatchiiH', and many fnrmers make a practice of sowing a small area every year in rye for the sake of the straw.

THE DAIRY. HEAVY ROOT FEEDING. EFFECT ON THE MILK YIELD. An experiment .was recently tried • by Messrs. Lauder and Pagan at j Edinburgh on the effects of feeding an extra quantity of roots to milk cows with regard to the results on j the milk yield. The quantity and i quality of the milk were noted, and incidently a test was made how f >.r turnips would replace the expensive food conimonly used for feeding. The turnip ration was as follows per head daily Bean meal, 21b ; bran, 21b. ; turnips, 112rb. ; hay, 151b. ; having an albuminoid ratio of 1 to 11. The concentrated ration was : Bean meal, 2tb. bran, 2ih. ; peas meal, 41b. ; . dried brewers' grains, 21b. ; turnips, 40tb. ; hay, 151b. : hav ing a ratio"of .1 to 7.fi. Among the conclusions arrived at is that. the richest milk was not obtained from the ration with the largest amount of digestible fat ; that, indeed, more fat was found in the milk than was fed in the rations, and that therefore the digestible carbohydrates of the ...

I THE FARM. CLOVER SICKNESS. Tlic ol.l idea that clover sickness is due to the exhaustion of some soil constituent PSKcnti.il for the growth of clover is now disproved (writer a contributor to the "British Journal" of Agriculture,"). and it has been de finitely shown ,!h:tt the disense is of parasitic origin.

CHEAP SILK SWINDLE. Edwin Percy Liddle, who had been convicted on a charge of obtaining money by means of false pretences, was called up for sentence befote Judge Murray at the Quarter Sessions on Monday. Evidence was given at the trial to the effect that Liddle, by repre senting, in an advertisement published throughout the Commonwealth, with the exception of New South Wales, that he would sell ten yards of silk for 2/6, obtained a large number of postal notes, money orders, and stamps, but it was maintained that he did not intend to carry out his part of the agreement.

He said that Liddle had carried out an ingenious, elaborate, and, to a great extent, successful swindle, and should be dealt with accordingly. Liddle was sentenced to three years' penal servitude.

EXCAVATING TANKS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 April 1914
EXCAVATING TANKS. Plans, specifications and instructions for excavating storage tanks have been prepared by the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission, and copies may be obtained free of chnrgo at tho Commission's offices. Hereunder we publish the specifications for general information. Before any work is done in excavating tank, the selected site should be well tested to see that no heavy body of stone or inferior material, not watertight, is underneath. This can easily be ascertained by sinking two or more small shafts, or by boring, or by part sinking and past boring. Wherever possible the site for the tank, j relative to the supply channel, should be chosen so that water can be stored above ground. For this purpose the material from the excavation should be placed con-, tinuously around the tank as shown on plan. Where the tank site is on sloping ground a good result in this way is easily secured. Even in flat ground, very often some extra water can be stored above ground, at ...
