THE GARDEN. EFFECT OF LIGHT ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 27 March 1914
THE GARDEN. ±-,-_ EFFECT OF LIGHT OX THE DE VELOPMENT OF FRUIT. Experiments have been made to as certain the influence that light exer cises on the development of fruit, and the results are interesting. The experiments were made by let ting the fruit ripen (1) in bags that shut out all rays of ligbt, (2) i'i transparent bags giving an attenua ted light. (3) fruit exposed topfull daylight ; the trials were made on crapes, cherries, pears, apples, etc. Prom the results it vronld appear that light is absolutely -necessary i >n 1 \ during the first-stages of the formation of fruit and grain. After this initial stage has passed, the fruit seem able to complete' its de velopment and maturity .equally well in obscurity as in full light, although under the influence of the latter s greater amount, of dry substance wjm. acquired. It was observed that the best re sults were obtained when the c,row ing fruit was under the influence of an attenuated light, and also that the acidity of the fr...

It didn't used to be so. The demands for this and that change are coming thicker and faster." We do not wonder that some fann ers f»-el like this. The minds of men arc Retting greatly stirred as to the necessity for more and better know ledge, for better methods concerning the handling of our farms.

"You take matters coolly,s Mr. Sherlock Holmes the Second," ^he said. * . "And why not ?" .Dick asked, de fiantly. "Ay, why not ? I like your spirit, sir, and I trust you will prove as sensible as you are plucky. Had I ? wished' it, I; could have had you in my power long-ago - at any time after you played the spy at Wap ping. Your subsequent 'movements, both in London and New York, were watched by my agents. They had no ! : intentions of taking you yet-so long as you did not attempt to use your fangs-and it was entirely an acci dent that you ran across tne Senor Monte;o the other night and forced his hand." "The title you bestowed upon me is rightly yours," Dick answered. "I am flattered to think that you took such an interest io my movements." "I had reasons," said Gore, "and reasons of whic...

Giant Mollusc that Traps Men. PEARL DIVERS SEIZED AND HELD AT BOTTOM OF SEA. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 27 March 1914
Giant Mollusc that Traps fVien. A rr. PEARL DIVERS SEIZED AND HELD AT BOTTOM OF SEA. Feorling and romance are synony mous in the youthful mind-facts m the industry in Australia bring this samo romance closely home to the grown-up reader. Started in Torres Straits fifty years ago by a band of intrepid white men, it has been car ried on ever sinco with varying good fortune. Sharks, which are supposed to be a great terror, give the average di\er little concern ; he is more afraid of the sea-eel of North Queensland. A diver is perfectly safe on the sea j bottom, because man-eating sharks are not ground-feeders ; If they see him they wait till he rises /or a breath of air, and then they try to intercept him, but the diver and his long knife nearly alWay3 win. The diver's worst enemy in tne deep is the giant mollusc. This crcature, from five to seven feet across the shell, lies with extended jaws waiting for proy. The driver drops out of his boat with a heavy stone attached to his feet, a...
ON FEEDING OATS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 27 March 1914
ON FEEDING OATS. - All horses when fix! on whole oats will swallow some whole oats with out chewing them, and the stomach cannot accomplish what the teeth fail to do. This applies to young as well as old horses. A general average by chemical an alysis in a stable of 100 horses. oUl and young, shows 21 per ccnt. wast ed. Meal after meal is so overtaxed with indigestible oats, which weaken und inflame the digestive organs so they' cannot perform their functions ami extract all the nutriment even from the masticateh oats. When you feed your horse whole oats and you see whole oats in the manure, you don't know how much nutriment the animal gets, because jnii see waste with your naked eye. Put when you feed your horse crushed oats you know exactly how much nutriment it will get. for all the nutritious parts of the oats will digest. The saliva, when the oat is opened ('crushed), will mix with the diges tible part of the oat. whether the teeth further masticate it or not. The saliva is wha...
THE DAIRY. ABOUT BUYING COWS [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 27 March 1914
THE DAIRY ABOUT BUYING COWS I A representative letter from an 1 English dairy farmer in t.he "British Agricultural Press" says : - "Cow buying is a very uncertain business. There is much faking in the cow mar-i ket, but home-bred heifers are at least honest. Horns may be rubbed , down, and udders stocked, and other, purchases ,mny turn out deceptive ] owing to udders being what-is known , as fleshy. Many cows milk well for j the first two or three months, and ; then quickly dry off, and these are [ just the animals, .which will' be. run j round and offered for sale after their ! next^'-calving. Some- cows which milk ed well in their own homes do badly when transferred to a n8W' place. Some are sold bccause they are kick ers, or liable to blow or suffer from some recurring ailment. "No one doubts that heifers are safer buying than cows, but the fact j remains that w1^ are losing ground j as to the supply of milking cattle by j the system of dealing too exclusively j with cows.

CHAPTER XIII. THE MISSING PASSENGER.. ! Before Ivilf the distance 'was rever ed t.he yacht's jolly boat had eome up abreast, of the launch-the latter hung hack a little for it - and the two went on side by side. Leon Mon tejo was in the boat with four of the crew, iind after ex eh anoint,' a few words with Captain Gore, he shot a glance at Dick that was full of men ace and hatred. Dick " returned it scornfully, and then gave his entire attention to the Juno. The ship had a crippled appearance as she lav heaving 011 the swell. A few men were leaning front the rail, two were on the bridge, and others we.re bust ling about with considerable excite ment and noise. The launch came up to' the liner amidships, where a ladder had been put out, and with crol impudenre Captain Gore and six of his men clambered aboard the Juno, Peter Smock prodding Dick from behind.

CHAPTER XII. A CRIME ON THE HIGH SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 27 March 1914
CHAPTER XII. -- A CRIME ON THE HIGH SEAS. For three whole days after his in terview with Captain Gore there was little or'nothing to break the mono tony of Dick's confinement. He was satisfied from Gore's own words, that Grenville's chain of theories had been correct in every particular ; so he could only wait patiently until that secret island-home was reached -until the final choice of life or death should be offered him. He kept in fairly gxjod spirits, a.nd did not let himself think much of the future. A bath-room adjoined his cabin, and he was provided daily with clean linen. He had good wine and cigars, and the meals brought to him equal led the cuisine of a big ocean liner. The "something to read" promised by Captain Gore was in the form of newspapers, English and American, which covered a period of several months. They contained marked para graphs, and these Dick found very interesting. Briefly put, they showed that the public had begun to connect recent loss of ships, the p...
THE FARM. MAKING MONEY OUT OF COWS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 27 March 1914
1 ? .T MAKING MONEY OUT OF COWS. There are ten rules for making money out of cows tuid they all begin with "milk good cows." To put the case in a nutshell, or rather to skim the cream from the whole matter, let us admit, that there are, sny, seven fundamental principles of successful dairying, about- as follows : 1. Weed out the poor cows by means of the scales and the Bab cock test. 2. Feed the good cows plenty of clean, choice stuff us close to a balanced ration as possible. 3. Eliminate competition by pro ducing a better product than the olhor fellow and demanding a good price for it. .I. Head the herd with a high class, purebred sire. 5. Raising the promising calves from the best calves only. 6. Develop a market for your surplus bull calves and other stock. 7. Feed the mind of the man be hind the cow.

Weight of Galwes. Calves usually weigh S per cent, of the weight- of the clam. llighty j pounds is a common weight. 1 jut- ! they sometimes vary from .">01b. | upward io l'_\">lb., or oven more, j A call nine days old would likely weigh about l!011>. more than when | born. ! For rapid growth the calf should i have all the new milk it will take ' without digestive troubles, and it ; should suck it rather than drink it. To supplement, the milk there' should be good pasture in summer ! and sila.ge and clover or lucerne ! hay in winter. As a grain ration j to be fed the year around ns sonn | as the calf will eat, nothing excels j a mixture of equal parts by mea-i sure of ground corn, ground oats, and bran. In order to cheapen the grains the bran, is frequently re placed by cut. lucerne hay and a little meal. Sunday-school Teacher : "What do we mean by the quick and the dead ?"'

A Locust Swarm. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 27 March 1914
I Locust Swarm. - A novel experience for a new comer to South Africa is to en counter a locust swarm. To dwellers on the High Veldt the sight is not unusual, but one's first ac quaintance with the pest is .some what startling. A party of "newly outs" was tak ing the journey to the Victoria Fa Ha, When half-way across the Karoo, on n bright, sunny day, the sun suddenly became obscured, and the sky seemed to turn Mack. The ladies screamed in alarm ; they thought it meant an earthquake, or at least a violent tropical thunder storm, hut a voice along; the cor ridor of the train, shouting, " Lo custs swarming-close all doors and window's," explained the peculiar darkness, nnil partly calmed the feminine fears. The order was obeyed, and the passengers watched developments. The gigantic mass swooped down on the train, covering coaches and rails, and beating themselves against the windows, blotting out all light. The train slowed down to half speed, for the crushed bodies make the rails ter...

A Dainty Teacloth. MAKE ONK FOR THE BAZAAR. A new idea for a dainty teacloth is always welcome, and in the sketch our artist illustrates a par ticularly pretty suggestion that may he easily carried out".. In size the cloth should be a yard square, and the material is cut into curves nt the edges and trim med with a broad frill of laco. This frill is headed with a very narrow silver braid arranged in a tiny loop between each curve. A pole blue satin applique, out lined with some of the same narrow silver braid ornaments each corner of the cloth, and the same design in rather a larger size appears in the centre. 'Diagram A shows the shape in which the satin should be cut out, arid for the corners it should mea sure about five inches across, and for the centre about seven. In the large sketch the cloth is shown folded up, and-only one corner of it is visible ; but in Diagram B it is illustrated laid out quitgflat, so that the whole design . may be seen.
