CAUSE OF SOIL SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 April 1914

CAUSE OF -SOIL SICKNESS. -.An••• interesting and instructive paper on tho above subject by Dr. J E. Ku3 >ellj. director of the Eothamsted Experi iiietal Station', ancl Mr. Walter Buddia. was 'delivered before the Society of Chemical Industry recently. The paper described how an accident had shown that with the partial sterilisation of tho soil it was able to absorb oxygen very much mora rapidly than untreated soil. Owing to the elose connection known to exist between the power of oxygen absorption of a sol] and its productivity,' it was thought probable that such partially sterilised soils would bo more productive than untreated aoils, and pot experiments proved that this was the ease. At this stage in the' re search it was found that the conclusion was not novel, the discovery having been inado accidentally in Alsace and confirmed in ajaboratory in Germany. As a result of a long series of investiga tions. carried out at Eothamsted tho following propositions had been defin itely ...

ENGINE POWER ON THE FARM. WHICH IS THE BETTER SYSTEM —Ol'L OR PETROL. At a rocent meeting of the Coorabie branch of tlie South Australian -Agri cultural Bureau, an interesting paper on "Engine power oh the farm" was read by Mr. C. He-;. In the opinion of Mr. lies, tho small farm engine is without doubt one of the most useful nmohincs in which a _ fanner can invest; and In: status that in South Australia it has quite replaced the old-fashioned system of hor.se works and hand ma chinery. Mr. lies enumerated a few oh its many spheres of usefulness:—It can he taken into the paddocks and will drive tho winnower; used with the circular saw it will out up the fire wood ; it will drive the ehaffentter. com-mill, and, in fact, any machinery on th > farm,, and that much quicker mjk! with less labor than by other me thods. Of all the kinds of engine power, Mr. lies i'nvors that driven by oil and petrol. There are two types of both those engines—portable mid stationary; and while the station...

LIVE STOCK AND SOIL FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 April 1914

LIVE STOCK AND SOIL FERTILITY. i Til a true principle of good farming is to get as large a return from the land as possible, at tho same time, ) maintaining if not increasing, the fer- j tility of the soil, said Mr EL V. Sprigg of Morphett Yale, in the course of a. I paper read before the Conference of j the Hills branches of the South Aus | tralian Agricultural Bureau. I If all the crops grown on the farm I (he continued) are oar ted to market j nd sold, ;the farmer is selling the fer . tility of hb farm, and^such a system I nst end in depletion. To maintain its fertility he must turn his farm into a i factory and change tho raw products 1 into milk or meat, the by-products bc i ing returned to the land as manure. Animals are a very important too tor in soil making, and the farm that is'well stocked has soil milkers continually at work maintaing its fertility. Rotation ' of ore,'pa .and livestock systematically worked are absolutely essential. Farm ing cannot be carried on successf...

WHY MEN DO NOT MARRY. Among the many bright features ol the "Strand" is a symposium on the above subjeot.

BRANDING OF HIDES. OUR PRESENT WASTEFUL METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 April 1914

BRANDING OP HIDES. OUR PRESENT WASTEFUL METHODS. j The great waste of money entailed j by our present method of branding i cattle is a subject which periodically crops up in the newspapers and lea ! ther trade journals. It never ap pears, however. to get past this stage, for the same injurious method , of applying hot irons to the beat | part of an animal's hide still con | tinues. In this connection it is point j ed out h\ the English Farmers' Fed ! eratiou that the difference in price . of leather, were it not branded, is | probably 3d. to ■id. per rb. Then, j again, raw hides, if not branded, ! would fetch Id. per lb. more, and, as , these hides weigh from fiOlb. tn SOHi. the difference in value is very ap j preciablc.

HUT BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 April 1914

HUT BUTTER. , The increasing popularity of butter . made from vegetable oil is a mailer of serious interest- to colonials, wlio have built-up adiuge butter trade. Some ten years ago (says the "Standard"), atteni|)ts were made to introduce vege table oils in the manufacture of mar garine, .only jffiimal fats liaving been previously employed. Sinoe then great advances have been made, and in the manufacture of margarine chemistry uas achieved one of its triumphs. To day nut butter is one of the staple articles of food for the masses. At first cocoanut oil only was used in its manu facture, but many. other substances are now employed, such, as ground nut oil, ( and; palm .kernel, oil. To make all these j oils a perfect. basis, x they are treatod' with a light alkaline solution, which. j , absorbs, all free fatty acids in them, making the oil neutral. After this certain, remaining volatile elements, which would tend to produce ranoidity ai^d an unpleasant flavor, are got rid of by heatin...

THE GARDEN. INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 April 1914

THE GARDEN. X - J INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON ] YIELD OF TOMATOES. ! In regard to the experiments with j tomatoes at the New York Agricul tural Experimental station, Mr. Wel lington has found that a crop of hy brid plants of the. first generation give a larger yield than cither of the parental forms, or of the succecding generations after the "break." The results suggest and seem to warrant the use of first generation seed only if the main object be the production of a heavy crop. Of course, it en tails all the extra care and trouble that artificial fertilisation means ; but Tomato fruits, as a rule, pro duce a .large number of seeds, which, j so far, is some compensation ajrainst j the extra trouble. Tomato seeds re ! thin their vitality, it is said, for ) from three to seven years ; therefore ! it would only be absolutely neces ' sary for seed-growers to raise every | third year a sufficient quantity to ; cover the needs of a three-year sale. • It would appear to be a simple ' matter...
