B ROAD FORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 February 1914
B ROAD FORMATION At last counoil meeting the president complained of the way in which the formation of the Bi road was being car ried out. The required depth of gravel was not rut on and the filling was not put in as specified. There was a dip in the road and the water would lie on it. Or Rodwell was sure there was a dip in the road that must hold water. Cr F A. Nixon was ccrtain that the gravel was two or three inches lower than the present formation. When it settled the formation would be useless ani the money wasted, The engineer explained that he had made a mistake in the width of the road thinking it was 20 feet instead of 25. He had got the road widened five feet and there was more than the specified amount of filling put in. Cr G Nixon said it was a mistake to call for tenders for a 20ft road as the council had done. The engineer was right in widening it five feet. but the level should have been kept up to the other part of the road. It was decided to strike out of the accoun...

KINDS OF POTASH SALTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
KiNDS OF POT ASH SALTS. In order to obtain the best results from the use of potash salts, the ma nure should be applied early; this re commendation holds good especially with kainit, which proves most effective when applied in winter or quite early in the spring. The more concentrated salts-sulphate of ,potash or muriato of potash-cans be put on the soil in the course of the manuring season, when most convenient. With them there is not the same reason for early applical tion. . The potash salts sold in this oountry are usually either one or the other .of the following three kinds: - Kainit, containing 23 per cent. sulphate of potash, equal 12,- per cent. of pure potash; sulphate of potash, containing 90 to 95 per cent. sulphate of ,potash, equal to 48 to 50 per cent. pure pot ash; muriato of potash, containing 80 to 85 per cent. muriate of potash, equal to 50 to 52 per cent. pure potash. The use of kainit is the most com mon, because it is the cheapest and the most useful for genera...

COST OF FOOD FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
COST OF FOOD FOR MILK. The University of Leeds and the Yorkshire Council for Agricultau l Edu cation have issued their first roport (on the investigations made as to the cost of food in the production of alh. The report refers to investigations covul:ng one year only, made in Yorkshire, lupon the, lines adopted in Scotland, w here the investigations have. been con:luted:d uninterruptedly since Mr. Johnl Spcir was instrumental in initiating them in 1903. Through the instrumenta, .ty of Colonel Goodman, C.B., Great Snita ton, Northallerton, nine landowners and farmers, along with Colonel Goodman, helped to carry out the investigations. The herds included in the investigati3n were visited once ia fortnight du:~iig the 12 months conunencing Apri;, 19;1.

HAND-REARING FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
HAND-REARING FOWLS. There is a difference in constituent.s between mlre's milk and that of a cow, and this must be allowed for when it is necessary to rear a foal arLilicially. Jl.oughly speaking, a mare's milk has half as much protein, fat, and miineral matter, but4 little more sugar than cow's milk. It is advisable to use milk from a ireshly-ealved cow antl one noti testing high, about 3 per cent. being a fair st:andard. 'The u:,ual plain is to use about a fourth as much pure rain water as milk, and add a de:ssertspoonful of sugar to each pint of the mixture. The best plan is to. dis solve the sugar first in hot water, then add enough water to make one-iourth or a pint, and make the pint up wi,.h whole milk. The mixture should be warmed up to about 100 degrees F., .and the foal given about a pint every two hours, or oitener in smaller quali. titlies If very young foals are being reared lime-water added to the milk and water corrects acidity, tends to pre vent scours, and probably ...

REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. At the basis of all genuine rotations lies-the fact. that plants differ from one' another! in their demands upon the soil, both chemical anid physical; they differ with regard to their root systems, depth of feeding, their moisture requiremients, their' tiime of feeding, their dates 'n reaching. maturity, etc Manyplants impoverish the soil; .a few enrich. ij ; some spoil its physical .condition, while others improve it in that regard. Many.-crops favor the growthi of weeds, while others either are able to hold the weeds in check, or re quire such cultivation anid-treatment as will prievent their growth. All these differences fit -glants-'for difi'oront'places in rotation, arid a well arraiged rotation. is oneo in which the strong points of one ordp follow so as to fit .into: the -weak points of another, or vice versa, -and in this way reduce deficiencies to a minimum.., A crop that reqiuires a large amount of one ele inent should be followed by one that requir...

Queen King. One of the most remarkable women in the world is (says " Cassell's Saturday Tournal") Mrs. King, the vyidow of Cap t: n Richard King, of South Texas. She owns and manages with great success an estate of about 1,250,000 acres. Her raneh of Santa Gertrudis is the largest Sin the world. It is bounded by Corpus Christi Bay for a distance of forty miles, and by barbed wire fences for 300 miles more. From her front door to her front gate is thirteen miles, and she can drive in her carriage sixty-five miles in a straight line without going off her own premises. Her house looks like a castle .o. on the Rhine-a typical baronial man sion. It is situated on a slight eminence, -surrounded by the dwellings of her de pendents and by fields of waving corn. The mansion itself is most splendidly furnished, and nothing that money can buy is wanting.

Early Rising. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
Early Rising. Long ago, in the days of my childhood, remember being very sceptical as to e virtues of early rising, and when pastors and masters, to inspire me rwith energy, told me "the early bird ,gathers the worm," even that failed to 'have the proper effect, for I noted that ithe early worm met with an untimely tfate as the result of his matutinal ac tiv'ty, and doubted whether early rising .tm d be better for me than for hint. e'wer could see why the "early to rise" person should be "healthy, wealthy, and Wise," for wisdom at any rate seemed *0 be the attribute of him who, feeling be *eed of a longer rest in the rmon g, decidd to take it, rather than with im .who abode by a hard and fast rule f early rlsing, no matter what his feel Or health prompted him to do. any feelings on this subject have tered very much with maturer It Is a matter of satisfaction to e to find that nowadays people are be ng'to doubt the virtue and wisdom e'rIly itsing.

SMOKE AND ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
SMOKE AN.D ELECTRICITY, 1?lcclricil.y appeared as a solution for the smoke problem in a recent demon strtionI . The smoke-abating appliance reiiiov-dcl the soot fromt 900 cubic feet of smjokl in a minute at a total cost of alout a peiny a divy for operation. The action of the apparatus consists in pre cipitating the solid particles in the smoke by means of alpowerful electric current, asn its inventioU is based, on the fact that one-third to one-half of the ;olid nmItter in smoke from smelt ing fur?aces consists of particles of iron oxide. aElectrical current is applied to the smoke byu means of a wire woven through a number of small pipes placed at the top of the chimney so that the smoke must pass through them. As soon as the electricity is turned on the sni;,ll particles floating in the smoke are changed to large particles which fall back into a bin by their own weight. Its applicatioh is not confined, however, to smelting furnaces, for it has been found that the device works as ...

ARTIFICIAL MILK FROM VEGETABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
ARTIFICIAL MILK FROM VEGETABLES. A subject which has greatly exor oised .he minds of scientific and medical circles, and which the- Press has not been slow to recognise, is the possibilitS of being able to secure an artificial milk from xvegetables. Demonstration has recently'been made in London in the manufaoturo of this product, which it is olaimed, contains all the elements of the best cow's milk, and can be used for the same purposes. M[uch interest was taken in the demonstration, among those present being Sir William Crookes representative of the Homo Office and the Local Government Board, several medioal olficers of health, and other members' of the medical profession. Mr A. J. Faulding, who will be res ponsible for the introduction of syn thetic milk to Great Britain, said it was more digestible than ordinary milk. Ho claimed that the cream was far more nourishing, and would last any time. The milk could be used for all cooking purposes, and very good cheese could ba made fro...
Household Hints. Insect Pests. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
Household Hints. Insect Pests. . Last weel an Edinburgh correspondent Sent me a doleful account of the invasion Of her pretty home by an army of cock toaches. Where they came from was a mystery ; but, in spite of several so called remedies which were tried, they only increased in numbers. I advised the old-fashioned plan of sprinkling Rhellebore in their haunts, and four days later my correspondent wrote :-" I have only. used the hellebore twice, and it has been most effectual." This is so satis. factory that I have decided to devote a paragraph this week to various insect pests, and the best ways of exterminat ing them. In country places ants frequently snake their way into dwelling-houses, raiding the pantry, and destroying pro .'islons at an alarming rate. One plan is to note the hole or cracks through which they make their appearance; to drop 'in some quicklime, and then to pour k little boiling water on it. Powdered camphor sprinkled on a sponge saturated 'with creosote will dr...
