INTERESTING APPLE EXPERIMENT. THE USE OF LIGATURES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 10 April 1914

- ( INTERESTING APPLE EXPERI MENT. » THE USE OF. LIGATURES. . j A most interesting experiment is N reported from Tasmania in regard to ' apple-growing. Some trees of the Al j friston variety appeared to be. bent I on producing wood instead of fruit.' Ligatures were applied to the trunks of five trees on January 14. The ef fect was remarkable. The apples on the trees began to change colour" st once, until bj the end of February they were nearly all yellow, nftd in splendid condition for export. The ligatures consisted of stout wires, tightly bound round. As soon as the fruit was gathered this was removed, and then the trees made nearly a foot of wood before thjc leaves fell in the autumn. Another change no ticeable was that the fraiting bran ches made better development. t Bunions.-Paint them every second day with iodine till the soreness dis appears. 1922.

CHAPTER XVI. BEHIND THE FOG. it was now but little more than half-past tan o'clock, and within an hour the weather had changed from fair to foul, and gave promise of an ugly day. Murky clouds sent down a fine drizzle, and the still air was raw and cutting. A grey mist was slowly settling over the sea ; already the horizon waa limited to a narrow ra dius. The launch and the jolly-boat ploughed on side bj side until they reached the point where separation was obvious. Then Montejo.. leaned over the gunwale towards Captain Gore. "You had better give me the girl," he said. "No; I Bball keep her under my I protection," Gore replied. "She will be safer and more comfortable on the cruifcer." "But surely Lucille . is the proper person vto look after her?" "That's true," assented Gore, "an<T i intend that you shall transfer your sister to the cruiser at the first op portunity. But not now. I want to got awny from these waters as soon is possible." All right," Montejo answered, sul...

CHAPTER XV. DICK'S TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 10 April 1914

CHAPTER XV. DICK'S TEMPTATION. Dick had heard all the foregoing conversation, and he realised what it meant. He knew that the pirate con templated another outrage, and one infinitely worse than the shooting of Luke Radford. "Must I stand by and sec it ?" he said to himself. "They will take this woman by forco to tbo cruiser, and Bbo Is prohably well-bred and a lady. Tho captain is right; she kiwi mucli better bo dead than tall into such hands ! I can't play a passive part much' longer. If I had a pistol I should bo strongly tempted to shoot that scoundrel, Jason Gore. And it might ho just as well for mc, for I am a doomed man, anyway. I can't fcee a ray of hope in the future. At that moment there was a stir of curiosity, and Dick's comrades closed compactly in front of him, blocking his view across tho dock. He shifted his position and looked. Tho captain was at tho head of the companion way, supporting on one arm a young and most beautiful girl. Her slim flguro showed to advantage ...

VALUE OF RYE CORN. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 10 April 1914

VALUE! OF RYE CORN. The value ol 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 are allowed to run forward through creeps. It is also an excel lent preparation for roots, ami is grown as a catch crop between them and the previous com crop. After it shoots into car it ceases to be of value ns sheep keep, but may be cut and carried to horses. It may even be left for seeding ns a corn crop. Rye straw comcs in very useful for thatching, and many farmers make a practice of sowing a small area every year in rye for t&e sako of the straw.

THE DAIRY. HEAVY HOOT 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: quality of the milk were noted, and incidently a test was made how fir turnips would replace the expensive food commonly used for fowling. The turuip ration was as follows per head daily Bean meal, 21b ; bran, 21b. ; turnips, 112Tb. ; hay, l!ilb. ; having an albuminoid ratio of 1 to !.!. The concentrated ration was : Bean meal, 21b. ; bran, 2tb. ; peas meal, 4lb. ; dried brewers' grains, 217). ; turnips, -101b. ; bay, 15H>. ; hav ing a ratio of I to 7.6.
