A Wandering Cow AND THE SERGEANT'S TOMATOES [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914

A Wandering Cow AND THE SERGEANT'S TOMATOES Happily the wandering cattle nuisance is not so prevalent in Sey mour as in many other places. Nevertheless, we have heard several complaints lately of the depredations of these nightly prowlers. As long as these visitations are confined to the gardens of-peace-loving rate payer the cows and their owners are generally "on velvet," as house holders.can do little else than lodge a complaint with the civic authori ties. But to invade the sacred pre cints of the police gardens is risky at any time both for man and cow, but more especially.. when the Sergeant's tomato plants are in their prime. One Sunday morning recently a passing cow was so ena moured by the refreshing green ness of the patch that whatever scruples she may have had were overcome by a desire to know if they tasted as well 'as they looked. Whilst engaged in this'.pleasant occupation Sergeant... Lambden came on the ' scene. " What followed must be left "to the reader's imaginati...

Bowls. On Wednesday' a team of bowl-. ers from Tatura visited Seymour to play the return match for tthe dis trict competition. The first match between tbe-e clubs was played at Tatura, when Seymour had a com paratively easy victory, and on Wednesday, notwithstanding the oppressive heat and a long ride by motor and train, the Tatura repre sentatives were fully convinced that they would give Seymour a Ro land for an Oliver. --They had a strong combination, and if their second division could only have kept up their end of the stick, they would hive returned victorious. But Messrs Hunter, Eason, Ham mond and Hall (Tatura) were pitted against Messrs Gronow, Storey, Boddy and Bullen (Sey mour), all of whom were in good fettle, and therefore, completely overshadowed their opponents, by scoring 44 to 10. In the other rink, the players of which were-Stewart, Sedgefield, Gibson (who was the, mainstay of his side) and Guild, had a desper ate struggle against Lupton, Mach .ier, Williams and Dav...

FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914

FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. The- Agricultural Department of tihe Swiss Guvernment have jist published an intere,ting report of -experiments conduotid over three years to test the effect of different fcrtilisers on meadow land. The fertilisers experimented with wvere nitrogen:, phosphate of lime, and potash, the f ,rtilisers being tried alone and mixed. The' conclusion arr:ved at is that, in order to obtain the heaviest and mo ,t pr,:fitable crops, it is neo s siry to supply fertilisers containing th, three' principa l fertilisiilg substances- pholphoric anoid, potislh; and nitrogen. T' h exitra yield obtained from this sys tem of manuring 'covers the cost of thez fertilisers and leaves a good profit?. The effect of the manures is more mark ed'on the first cutting than on the soauid cut, the average increase har ing been found to be from 62 to 100 pec cent. on the former, and 20 to 40 per cent.on the second crop.

REMEDY Fly GLARING LIGHT. A novel device has recently- been peioccted for overcoming the danger from glare in motor-car- headlights. This devioe consists of a rack of alum inium plates; placed behind .the main glass and in front of the len's and tmrner. - These plates are placed lion. ;ortally,. one above the other, about one-eigth of an incli 'part, 'and have their lower surfaces highly polished. ann' the upper surfaces painted a dead, black. The effect is that fromta. dis tafice'of about 150 'yards, the full light is seen. without any apparent shading, but as the car approaches, the light 'and glnre ibccome weaker and weaker, until. when a -fewr yards away, nothing canr he seen but a faint grey glon. She: "Some day I want to show you out faniily tree." He (looking at .her admiringly) : "I slhould like to see.it, I assmne it must be a peach."

Tallarook "Soft silken primrose fading timelessly" [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914

Tallarook "Soft silken primrose fading timelessly , Glady's babyhood with its tender tokens of endearment had genially passed by, and the threshold of the sweet years of girlhood had been reached with all its attendant charms of grace and comeliness budding sweetly over every feature. Summers three; times three, save one, had told, when the cruel Atropos for Glaily came and left us a vacant chair. This pathetic pre face has all referred to the death which is deeply lamented, of Gladys Jean, aged eight years, beloved daughter of IMr and Mrs J. H. Jones. The clear little girl, who was a gen eral favourite, was' stricken with that drieadful scourge diphtheria, and withal the medical attention, which was sedtlously given by Dri Strangman and Dr Morton, of Sey mour, and Dr Salts, of Kilmnore, lthiere was apparently no hope, and -early girlhood's sweet, manuscript should close- she expired on Satur day last at noon.

CREAM IN HOT WEATHER. Hoards ]Dtiryman says,-In order ;o make good butter in the summer it iS necessary to take'the very best of care of cream while it is being saved for a churning. Neglect to do tfiis is per. haps one of the chief causes of pool butter in the s'ummer. Butter from properly kept and ripened cream will have a more desirable flavor, it will keep sweet longer, and bring a high er price in any market. Naturally, thli first essential :s to takd proper care of the m:lk in the stable and separating room. It must be kept away from undesirable odturs, if taints arcs- not wanted in the but ter. It is preferable to skim a rather heavy cream in hot weather, one test ing about 35 per cent. It ought to le skimmed beforoethe milk has cooled or set around for any length of time. One of the first essentials is to cool it as soon' lifter separation as pos sible, When it can be arranged, a desirable method is to have the cream can set in a 'tank of ice water, or real cold well water, ...

A Trip to the Rubicon Falls. Organised by Mr. Storey. Magnificent Scenery. Deep and Preciptous Gorges. It was a happy and joyous party that left Seyniour on Saturday at noon, for a visit to the Rubicorn Falls, in two cars under the capabl management of Mr Caffrey. The trip was organised by Mr Storey, and was exceedingly. enjoyable light from start to finish, not a single hitch occurring to mar the pleasure and comfort of any of the visitors, all of whom are loud in ex tolling the enjo)ment which they derived front viewing the sparkling waters of the Rubicon, its dashinu spray as it swept down the stoney -mountain range, the rugged scen ery and the gigantic denizens of the forest. The sight was one that thrilled the imagination with de light, and led the creature to reflect upon the mighty works of the Great Geometrician of the Universe.

TURNIPS AND NITROGEN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914

TURNIPS AND NITROGEN.' Mr Thomas Jamieson, Director of the Agricuhltral Reseaich Association of Scotland, has made a careful con sideration of the turnip, which ex perience and experiment show does not require artificial nitrogen, but is-spec ially supplied with means for fixing the .necess-ory qualities of this element from the open air. The rape plant has a, structure practically identific,,. with the turnip. The special examin on of. the turnip and rape was brought about from the fact that a etter crop of oats was secured after ploughing rape than resulted fromn oats after clover. In this connection, Mr Jamieson declares, "Not to carry the turnip leaves off the field cahnot be too strongly repeated. The benefit to the, succeeding crop is well-known, though it was not realised that the absorption' 'of nitrogen was by the leaves, and that provision of this-ele ment to the succeeding crop is the ex planation. The' turnip shows in a- dried plant per 100 parts 2.25 of nitrogen. The ni...

ENGLISH FARM PRODUCTS. Part II of the Agricultural Statistics for 1912, issued by the British Board of Agriculture, deals with the produce. of crops, and brings out the deficient yields of wheat, oats, and potatoes, ow ing to tlhe wet season. A table,is given, showing the hypothetical value of orops. Wheat is put at £10,883000 as 'ompared with £12;210,000 in 1911.; barley, £8,452,000, against -8,814,000 ats, £9,108,000, against £9;677,000; potatoes, £8,908,000, against £10,118,000.
