THE FARM. WORN-OUT GRAZING LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 6 March 1914

t H E FARM. WOKN-OUT GRAZING LANDS. The proper treatment of old and worn-out grazing land often appear.-; to be a very serious and difficult, problem to many farmers. It is, how ever, one which may be readily solved. Old k'rass lanis have become rich in nitrogenous matter, but have usually been depleted of much of their mineral constituents, chiefly by tho removal of potash and phosphate to build up the bodies of the animals grazing on them. What then is tb. chief remedy for such old and im poverished Rrass lands, or tor poor freshly-reclaimed lands naturally de ficient ? Simplj to~ apply the potash and phosphate whose deficiency pre vents the land from yieldim; .good crops of hay or carrying a rich ar.d nutritious pasture. The require; 1 pot ash may be very profitably appli d in a dressing of half or even lcwt. 30 per cent, potash manure in autumn or ?winter.

CHAPTER V. AT THE SIGN OF THE JOLLY WATERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 6 March 1914

CHAPTER V. AT THE SIGN OK -THE JOLL.Y WATERMAN. For n. moment Dirk WHS silent. He pondered over the Spaniard's words, hut with no intention of taking them seriously. He was curious to Uno-.v to what Illegitimate use the yacht was to be put-that it had been purchased with some shady motive in view ho was satisfied. And, remembering cer tain rebellions then flourishing in dif ferent parts of the world, he quickly concluded that he had found the clue. He pushed back his chair and roso to his feet. "Your oiler is a little too tempt ing, too flowery, Senor Montejo," he said, coldly. "X beg to decline It with thanks. I doubt if the allure ments you hold out would compen sate me for n cell in some foreign umj noi, regard that as a shadow of peril or misfor tune-to quote your own words." The Spaniard's black eyes flashed menacingly. "Sir,.I request that you make your meaning plnln," he answered. "Ho you accuse me of having illegal de signs ?"

NIAGARA'S RIVALS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 6 March 1914

NIAGARA'S UIVAI.S. When iin idea becomes firmly looted in tlip minds of the reneral public it is hard to disturb. Ask the next friend or ac'iuaintance yon meet which is the Kreatest waterfall in the world, nnd he is almost certain to reply, without the sli^lifst hesita tion, "N'ia;:ara." j.\s a matter of Tart, Niagara does not hold the palm by any nicjns. The Victoria Kails in Central Africa, are quite a'hundred feet higher than Nia gara. Tn the neighbourhood of Hra mapntni, too, is an enormous series of falls, by which n vast river des cends over a mile in a very short inaccessible* heights of tin' I-Hcrm'biyas In British Guiana a fall has been discovered of recent years with a sheer drop of ISOOft. - nearly twice that of the higher of Niagara's two fulls. In British Gniana, too, there is another full more than BfJOft. deep. The American Fall at Niagara is 1,000ft. wide, and the somewhat, shal low water falls some 167ft.

APPLICATION OF POTASH MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 6 March 1914

APPLICATION OF POTASH MANURES. One important featuro in the skilful use of artificials is the proper sea-1 son of the year to apply them (.re marks the "North British Agricul turist"). This point has Jar greater significance thai) most farmers com monly imagine. Especially is this true in the case ol kainit anil potash manure salts, where success or failuro may depend oil the season o( applica tion. Kainit is a very useful manure if applied at the right time. If ap plied at the wrong time, It may be thrown away as far ns the crop in iliicHtion is concerned ; it might even bo hurtful to some crops if used at a wrong time. The results of a large number ol experiments conducted on tho Con tinent and in Great Britain give valuable information on this point. The majority of tliem point to the advantages of early application of kainit and potash salts, that is, au tumn or winter application. Profitable increases are given bj both autumn and spring applications, but in almost every case au...

LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 6 March 1914

IJUCKKXI I Lucerne is talked of mure than ever now at our dairy meetings. It is a well kinown fact that it furnisboB the cheapest source of protein of any rou^ha^e s'rown. One tiling strongly , emphasize*! by the experts is that it will not start under the ordinary conditions usually jrivou other crops by farmers. Quite contrary to the prevalent opinion, it needs a rich, sweet, thoroughly cultivated, well drained soil at the be^inninL'. When once started it has been found to be one of the easiest crops to ?.rrow ever kaiown. After a field is well set it docs not require as much care, and as one fanner said at a reccnt meet ing, "the more you abuse it Mien, the better it <loe«." -"Jersey Bulle till." 1918. |

MILKING MACHINES. The New York experiment station ! at Geneva follows the experiment stations of some of the other .States f in an endorsement of the practicaliil- 1 ity of machine milking. During the past live years the station has used n popular make that is on the mar- j ket and a careful rcc< rd has been ' made of its work. j Surely tliis ought to lie iL thorough ! test, aud when the mr.chine milling is endorsed on such a I asis it should carry a lot of weight with those t dairymen who have been waiting for | years fur the satisfaction that will comc to them once they are able to set awav from hand milling. ! "The Heviow" was tiie first of American dairy papers to express its j faith in milking machines, upholding j the idea when others unhesitatingly condemned them.

The following facts, milled from " Tre jellea on Daniel," regarding Ussher'n jKiaition in the matter of the date "f NcliemiuhV commission, may be of in terest to our readers, seeing that he is deservedly considerd as an authority on chronology.

But the woman ivit.ii brown hair should wear a brown hafc and the woman with red liaii should wear a hat in dark red tones, ? Hid so on. If you are going to buy .1 hat match your liair. "The second best thing is to match '.he hat to the eyes. The woman with bis brown eyes should wear s big brown hat.. The girl with the saucer blue eyes can wear a big blue hat. And the girl with hazel eyes ought to cultivate hats that are hazel and light brown and yellow brown. 7ml" lo the hair or the eyes. It is sure to be a succoss."
