KINDS OF POTASH SALTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914

KINDS OF POTASH SALTS. In order to obtain the best results-* i l'rom tho use of potash, salts, tlio ma nure should bo applied early; this re commendation holds good especially with kainit, which proves most effective ?when applied in winter or quite early in tho spring. The more ooncentrated salts-sulphato of .potash or muriate of potash-can bo put on tho soil in the cour.se of tho manuring season, when most convenient. With them there is : not the same reason for early applica tion. Tho potash salts sold in this country are usually either one or tho other of tho following three kinds: - Kainit, containing 23 per cent, sulphate of potash, equal 12£ per cent, of pure potash ; sulphato of potash, containing 'JO to 05 per cent, sulphate of potash, equal to 48 to 50 per cent, pure pot ash; muriate of potash, containing 80 to 85 per cent, muriate of potash, equal to 50 to 52 per cent, pure potash. Tho use of kainit is tho most com mon, beoauso it is tho cheapest and tho most useful for g...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. To prevent Iron Mould: Before us ing oopper, well rub wit}) a cJean par allin rag. jj(.« sure to always fill tho copper quite full of water. When finished, never let tlx; soupy water re main in with the idea of using it for cleaning purposes, as this is almost sure to eau.se iron mould.

THE USE OF SPURS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914

THE USE OF SPURS. Tlio efficiency of a rider may easily bo determined by the manner and fre quency with winch lie uses his spurs. '.I Jie "Live Stock Journal" commenting on thi.s fact, remarks:-At the begin ning of tho hunting .season a contro ceisy always arisen as to tho use of t>jnn\s especially in connection with, shifty hunters that arc apt to refuse when thoy are wanted to jump, thus greatly annoying tho rider; and, whilst, not necessarily recognising tho Contin ental! critics as profound judges of hunting, it is interesting to note what they have to say on this subject. They profess to dislike spurs as means of coercion or punishment. In school riding they are used notably as a method of indication to supplement "hands." .Sharp rowels* are properly condemned, and it is pointed oilb that only skil ful horsemen should use spurs at all. Tlin famous steeplechase jockey, Ar thur Nightinga.il won three grand Nationals, and his spurs were "dum mies," That example is assuredly to ...

DAIRYING. To make a sucoess in the dairy busi ness depends upon knowing the'funda mental principles of that biminuss unci applying that knowledge int«.*Ilij^ontly and in a businesslike way, Afilking I;OIVH, to many faj'mors, is considered a, particularly arduous tusk. Handling dairy aninulls and providing for their needs; is indeed no easy mut ter, but it is as remunerative an oc cupation as a fanner possessed with ability and industry can follow. No farmer can expect fanning alone, under whatever system, to make liim rich in the common sense of the term. It is well known, however, that he may provide for his family a> comfortable' living and a substantial surplus. So much is said and. written in tlii.s highly .: "modernised" age about "high positions," "big salaries," "easy work" etc., that it is only natural for the young men and women of our farms to grow up with the idea, that work with the hands in connection with brain work is to be shunned.

REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914

REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. At the buss is of all genuine rotations lies the fact that plant* differ from one imothi'i' in their demand's upon tin.* soil, both chemical and idtyfA:al; they differ with regard to their root systems, deptli. of feeding, their moisture requirements'; their time of feeding, their dates in reaching maturity, etc. Many plants impoverish the soil; a few enrich it; some spoil its physical condition, while others improve it in that regard. Many crops favor the growth of weeds, while others either are able to Jiold tho weeds iri oheck, or re quire such cultivation and treatmont as will provent their growth. All these differences fit plants for different places in rotating and' a well arranged rotation is ono in which the .strong points of one orop fellow so as to fit into the weak points of another, or vico vorsa, and in this way reduce deficiencies to a. minimum. A crop that requires a large amount of ono ele ment should be followed by one th,at requires less of t...

ELEPHANT STICKING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914

ELEPHANT STICKING. After'the favorite sport of the Nuba Arabs in the Soudan, the roughest football or the riskiest polo seems de plorably tame and mild. In that far away corner of Africa, the most popu lar form of amusement in sporting circle» is to hunt elephants as British people hunt pigs-on horseback and armed only with a spear. A writer in the "Morning Post" gives a_ graphic account of a morning's sport with these bold barbarians. Elephant hunting, under any circumstances is a strenuous and venturesome pursuit,, and the ?white sportsman, with the best of beaters and. the heaviest armaments, often carries his life in his hands. But the game as placed by the Ara^s of the Nuba Mountains is far more thril-' ling, and calls for an iron norvo, a superb horsemanship, and a rcckless daring. Tho elephants grazo on the in herds.

ASSET OR LIABILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914

ASSET OR LIABILITY. The grain crop is a liability-the oattle crop an asset. It may .seem a little severe, but an analysis of tlx two will hear out the statement. Grain farming. reduces tho fertility. Stock raising increases it. Grain fanning reduces tho humus in the .soil. Stock raising increases it. Grain farming spoils the mechanical condition of the soil-.stock-raising improves it. Grain raising fosters weeds, plant disease and insects-and stock raising decreases them. Grain raising results jn de creased. yields. Stock raising increases them. Stock raising develops thrift, --pay as y'ou go. Grain raising de velops tho credit system. Grain rai.^iiig brings tho mortgage. Stock raising pay it off. Tho labor for grain rais ing is exepnsive-that for .stock raising is cheaper in that it is engaged by the year. Grain raising is dependent on the .season-often resulting in failure. Stock raising is in ore independent of the season. Grain raising is a. soil robber; hence it is only possibl...

NOTES ON NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914

NOTES ON NATURE. The economic value of our native birds is .seldom appreciated. We can generally sec any Jit tie weakness they possess in stealing a morsel oil fruit, or a few grain's oi! seed; but the good the}' do, and which they do not adver tise, is unconsidered. When we dis cover that few of onr birds, compara tively, are seed-eaters, ;tnd the major ity are almost wholly insectivorous, their value may appear more promi nent. It is really only for a short time in the year that birds arc at all troublesome in our orchards and even then, the good they do is in a greater proportion than the harm. This, of .oursc, only, applies to the aativojivi fauna, and. the natural inference is lhat they are worthy of protection. Apart r'rom their distinctive beauty, i-heir gentle habits, and, in many cases, their delightful singing, t>he question of utility should appeal to even prac tical folk. To arm n boy or even a girl (as some of our Banners do) with a gun, in order to shoot birds, is n...
