THE SCAVENGER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 1 October 1881
THE SCAVENGER. " Re thou familiar, but by no means vulgar.'' Now. Mr. Editor, yrou made, or rather your printer did. a slight error in til« typing of my last. But as that is past, and we have other business more urgeufc, we will let it rip. So my friend Boots has been wielding his peu iu direct opposition to grammar and spelliug. Hut in the first place let me in- form rite public that I think it quite beneatli me to attack with ridicule the PERSox of anyone. No, I attacked their acts ; and in return this new dictionary of very doubtful veracity flies at the person and private life of some young gentleman whom he suspects, iu such a way as to prove his entire ignorance of the principles of Latham, Webster, and human nature. To start with, he insults the Almighty' in a manner worthy of a field-preacher (not a fiehl-iuarsliai; by upbraiding' that gentleman with the calor of his hair-a fact for which (fud alone is respousible. Then, a ta Josh Billings, he -talks of Napoleon *4 ha vin 4 ...

GROWING POTATOES UNDER STRAW. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 1 October 1881
GROWING POTATOES UNDER STRAW. The ground was broken in the Fall of 1879, ; and in the Spring of 1880 it was harrowed and nvtde fine, then furrowed not very deep, 3| feet apart. Potatoes of medium size were cut once and dropped in the furrow 20 inches apart. Ou one acre of ground I spread 100 bundles of rye straw, of the estimated weight of 550 pounds, over the potatoes dropped in i the furrow, and then with one horse j attached to a one-horse Syracuse plough, a light covering of earth was turned over on the straw and potatoes. The sea- ' son being so very dry, the straw did not all j "mulch," and the result was not as good as it would have been if the straw had all rotted, j and made a bed for the young potatoes. The j results, however, were in favour of the rye j straw, as the yield on that acre was 25 bushels : more than on an acre, alongside of it prepared this, way is, T claim, worth more than it would I be if hauled to the paper mill and sold at 20 j dol. oi even 25 dol. per to...
FARM AND GARDEN. HINTS ON MOWING GRASS AND MAKING HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 1 October 1881
FARM AND GARDEN. HINTS ON MOWING GRASS MAKING HAY. "THE practice of allowing grass to run to seed on the -laud is very mischievous. Many farmers do it under the impression that it improves the pasture, but it has exactly the opposite eflvct. Grasses, if allowed to grow unchecked by mowing, become exhausted, and soon die out. Indeed, many varieties, as already stated, are not strictly perennial, and perish if allowed to ripen seed. Mowing or grazing and frequent roiling are indispensable tor obtaining and preserving a good pasture. Those who cut grass for hav should select I that stage for mowing when the earlier varie- ties are in full flower. There is in all grasses, r and especially in clovers, a constant secretion of saccharine matter in their steins during their early growth, and the best hay is made by those who select the best time to mow, which is indicated when the grass is in flower, and "before they begin to tura colour. The introdnciion of mowing machines has facilitated ...
THE SUGAR SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 1 October 1881
THE SUGAR SEASON. There are reports of severe attacks of frost amongst the cane fields of New South Wales and Queensland, and some growers are urged to push on the crushing of their crop; in order to avoid the greater danger which follows frost when rain falls, or the weather changes to wet and warmth. Puring such changes as that the frosted cane becomes sour, and the loss is then very serious. The skill and science which have already become notahle in the manufacture of sugar in the colonies have done much to modify the losses from attacks of frost. By the use of bi-sulpbide of lime, a chemical agent, souring is prevented in the cane juice, and all the su&lt;;ar it contains is extracted even from juice which might otherwise become an entire loss. Other agents, in which the fumes of sulphur play an active part, are also in favour with sugar makers, and do much to increase the certainty which is establishing the sugar-producing industry amongst us.
