PRACTICAL PARS. i » ? u Wheat plants vary greatly in yield, i* quality, in rust resistance, and in othel characteristics. Immense value is wrapped up in that kernel of wheat, which, when multiplied into a variety, adds a bushel per acre. The proper depth to sow wheat is be tween 1 in. and 3% in. Where the soil is firm underneath and mellow on the sur face 2 in. is about the proper depth. The quantity of seed that should be Eown per acre ' diminishes with the de crease in the amount of soil moisture available to the crop. t The earth is a machine which yields al ?Imost gratuitous service to every applied Ution of intellect.

LAMENESS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

LAMENESS IN HORSES. (By VET.) (Written Exclusively for 'The SlaLL') Horses have phlegmatic or nervous tem peraments, and show pain in different ways. ' . The phlegmatic, easy going norse wil allow a person to move and press injurea parts with little or no indication of pain. The nervous horse is so irritable that he will resent handling, not bnly of the in jured part, but sometimes parts -which are sound. Lameness is very difficult to diagnose, and often, the wrong place is blistered, causing unnecessary annoyance and pain to the animal. The farmer has frequently to deal with cases of lameness among 'is horses, and withont the help, of the veterinary sur geon serious blunders in diagnosis may be made. Some value can be put on symp toms. In. cases of sprain of a muscle or ligament some deformity may be noticed, and the position of the hmb will_ at once show where the injury exists. Pointing of a foot will probably indicate trouble in the foot itself, whilst the horse which walks soun...

For Bcrubrolling to be successful it is necessary in. every case to follow the roller with the fcre, and cut down all the 'springbacks,' Otherwise, when fire is set to the levelled Scrub, these are simply scorched, and have to be cut and collected for a second burn ing.

HORSE-BREEDING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

HORSE-BREEDING INDUSTRY. Of late years the breeding of horses as a department of farm production has been largely on the increase, and most sa tisfactory returns have been got where the right class of animal has been bred. In deed, bo great has been the demand for horses that every class, irrespective of type, has found a ready market at very satis factory prices. Although prices have eased off somewhat owing to the uncertainty of the season, there is still a good local and interstate market for the right stamp of draught horse, and the contin uance of this market wiH largely depend on the nature of the seasons. Doubtless this demand has been brought about largely through the opening- up of wide areas of new country in the various States, and also on account of the number of public works put in hand during recent years. One result of this demand has been to give quite an impetus to breeding among iannere, and large numbers of pedigree mares and stallions have been purchased from the...

Mutual Help Questions and Answers. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

Mutual Help Questions and Answers. 'Cairene,' Adelaide, asks: — 1. Could you tell me when is the proper time to spray lemon trees for red scale, if spraying is the best treatment, and with what material? Answer: — The only effective remedy for red scale is to fumigate for three-quarters of an hour with hydro cyanic acid gas, generated beneath gas tight covers. Spraying with resin wash or kerosine emulsion will reduce, but does not extirpate the pest. The Agricultural Department carries out the work of fumir gation at practically cost price, and full particulars may be had on application to the Chief Inspector of Fruit, Exhibition Buildings. The best time for fumigating is during the winter months. 2. In pruning a pear tree (Gansell's Bergamqnt) which wood should be left for fruiting? Answer: — The tree re ferred to being only a young one it should be pruned chiefly with a view to main taining 'its shape or frame.

RICKETS IN YOUNG PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

RICKETS IN YOUNG PIGS. The cause of this trouble in young pigs is to be found in improper feeding and housing. The absence or scarcity of phos phate of lime or other lime salts is -cer- tainly conducive to the trouble. In order to prevent the development of a weak ness in the -bones of young pigs it is ad visable to add a little bone meal to the daily ration.

MANGE IN HORSES OR CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

MANGE Df HOESES OR CATTLE. The horse is subject to three forms ol mange. Symbiotic mange is observed at the pasterns and fetlocks. It afterwards spreads until it reaches the hocks and knees. It rarely goes further, and the body thus escapes attack. It is prin cipally seen in heavy draughts with coarse hairy legs. The disease produces ex treme irritation, indicated by itching, stamping of the feet, and rubbing one leg against another. Sarcoptic mange most frequently starts at the withers and spreads to the neck, back, sides, and shoulders. The trouble is evidenced by itching, the horse rubbing and biting at the affected part if it can be reached. If the owner examines the skin he will find little pimples which break, the discharge dries and forms acrust, the hair falls off, and large bare patches are formed. Sometimes the disease, it neglected, will invade the whole of the body skin, with the exception of the legs. The skin becomes thickened and ' raised, and owing to rubbing alterat...

Vachell, being a. record of certain passages in the life of a musical genius, is one of the in creasingly large number of novels which relate to psychic experiences. The first part deals with the youth of the genius, David Archdale. and with the three. men who formed themselves into a eort of syn dicate for his development bodily and epi ritual— the organist, who 'had do story and whose youth had been exasperatingly blameless;''' 'the vicar, who 'exuded reform from every pore of his being, and who scrubbed other people's minds as. vigorous- ly as he scrubbed his owrl skin,' and the professor who described himself as 'apsy- -chologist.who. for ? grievous. janB^mrafttpfl in previous existences -was constrained to teach psychics to pudding-headed boys.' And the things that no man can teach they left to a girl— to Mary, who had pro tected others ever since she was 11, and whose 'inner mind' was beautiful though she only had one go...

THE GREAT JOKE. The joke of the past fortnight were the weather forecasts. Altogether I calculate about 3 ft. of rain have been predicted up to the time of writing this, but we haven't had even one toe. This is a pet joke of the weather -prophet! *}.; H? tuns out a forecast that sets the farmers crying 'Hallelujah!' and inime. diately puts in a spell so dry that a _wrd can't fly over a paddock without raising enough dust to choke a team of bullocks. 'Showery in the nor'-west,' announces the prophet again, and the people in the nor'-west hang out their billycans for a drink, and get them full of dirt. Show ers on the coast' he next posts up, and the coasters even tie up the bottoms of their Sunday trousers and put them out to catch the raoistiire. The duststorms cut the buttons off, and blow out the seams, but there isn't enough moisture to wet a tick. 'Probable general rain' is the next gag he offers, and the whole State gets ready for a cheap wash. There isn't even enough water for...
