Our Carrajung correspondent writes: The average annual rainfall is about •Mins.' One would 'think, to look at the country now, that the average was about lOins. Our high averages are built up by winter rains, which in my opinion denotes a dry summer or autumn, consequently no great benefit; is obtained when the winter provides the big readings.

THE PIGGERY. Profitable Rearing. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914
THE PIGGERY. Profitable Rearing. The whole secrct in rearing profit able pigs is to get well-bred ones, and (by consistent feeding keep them going without a check until they are sent to market. Perhaps the most prolific breeds are Berkshires, York shires, and Tamworths. Excellent baconers are obtained by crossing Tamworths and Berkshires. There is no dubt that the Berkshires are general favorites, but it must be re membered that the favorite does not always win the cup; and, after giving the Berkshires credit 'for many good points, it "will, perhaps, 'be found that the most useful types are the Middle York and the York-Berkshiro cross, because the Yorkshire will grow in to u first-grade bacon pit; oh less feed than any other breed, and in loss time. In crossing Yorkshires and Berkshires, it is found to be the best plan to use the Berkshire boar, because the Yorkshire sow is a 'bet ter mother than the Berkshire, and requires very little to keep her in condition between litters, the t...

WHITE ANTS AND FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914
WHITE ANTS AND FRUIT TREES. Open out Die soil and dig in a , few pounds of kaimt (Gorman pot- ! ash). IL will keep them away, ami kill a number by contact, at the j same time acting as ft good manure. Hisulphate of carbon would not last long enough; it would certainly kill all the white anta that came in con tact with it, but if put too close might kill the trees too, and it would be expensive. Apterite hi of little value in dealing with white ants. Mr. Froggart (Government Entomolo gist) says he has seen trees with the whole of the inner portion of the trunk piped by white ants, but the bark and sapwood alive and growing crops of fruit, the only danger being that they may snap oif in a wind, lie has known goou heaving trees in this Scale which are almost hollow, but after they had been opened and clean ed out and the cavity filled with ce ment (forming a solid central col umn) treen have lived for years. Poisoned bran forced into a cavity in a 'branch or stem will sometimes attract...
