OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST Generally speaking phosphoric acid seems to Lie ' the constituent most lacking in Australian .soils. The beneficial results of adding superphosphates have been prov ed, chiefly in wheat growing. It has been tho means of transforming wide tracts that were only sheep country into wheat producing areas. According to Mr Richardson, superin tendent of Agriculture, the value of the addition of superphosphate can be ex tended in increasing tho stock-carry ing capacity of land, that for various reasons cannot be brought under the plough. To test the effects of i)lios phatt-s on grass land, lour plots, each of half an acre, wore marked out on natural pasture land at the liutherglen Experimental Farm. One acre was treated with superphosphates at the rate of l&lt;nvt per ucre in 1912, and lcwt per aero iti 1913. A second plott was left unmanureU, a third, treated with 2 cwt of Thomas' phosphate in 1913, and a fourth with 2cwt of superphosphate and lOcwt of lime. The e...
ACID SOILS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914
ACID SOILS. As everv farmer knows the presence of acidity jn soil is injurious to vege tation. It gives rise to some well known plant diseases, such as "finger and too" in turnips, it prevents the growth of sweet rich herbage, and there are somo plants, for instance, lucerne, that refuse to grow in acid soil. What are the principal oausen of soil acidity? 1. Tho decomposition! of organio matter accompanied by the formation of various organic compounds. 2. Tho action of soil bacteria act ing upon certain portions of tho vege table matter in the soil. 3. The breaking up of tumoral fer tilisers. Thus, when sulphate oi' am monia is decomposed in the soil, there is a formation of free acid in tho noil solution, which is injurious unless counteracted by the presence of a suf ficient supply of lime in the soil. It is possible that bo tho acidity so produced m the absence of adequate lime may bo attributed tho unsatisfactory results which have .somotime« been noticed from tho use of sulphat...

THE FATIGUE POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914
THE FATIGUE POINT. Nothing is so beneficial to a man or a woman as to relax every musclo of tho body, to lie, or at least .sit still with closed eyas for a short timet every day. Many people cannot sleep, many can only sparo a quarter of an hour for this rest, but if these would make a point of taking just what they can, they would soon lind a marked di/forenco in their health. A human being can work every day up to tlto point of fatigue, without feeling any tho worse, in fact, it may be .sanl that hundreds woaild feel inlinitoly hotter if they iiad to work to the fatigue point every day of their lives. They would not then complain of loss of appetite, or in ability to .deep. But the-se ill olfectH if they arise from want of work, ahso attack those who habitually pass tho fatiguo point. To rest just before get ting really tired is one of tho very best methods to prevent a breakdown, if mental or physical strain is contin ued, even a. little too far for any con siderable length of ti...

INCUBATORS IN EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 March 1914
INCUBATORS IN EGYPT. The auuouneo'iieiit is made by Mr. W; II. Cadman that lie has discovered how the ancient; Kgyptians incubated chick ens to tho number of. .120,000,000 a yoar. Ho hs'M found incubators which ho Htal.es wore, used in lOgypt 5,000 years ago. The secret has boon well guard ed, bub it is laid bare, at last. They had no oil stoves or gas or eJectrie heated incubat ors, bub they had ovo.nu winch worked better oven though tlioy required more constant tending. l')a«h. oven was calculated to hold 7,000 egg.s, and the fuel by which it was heated consisted of chopped straw and dung, but for the last ten days of the hatching 1,1)0 on orgy was supplied altogether by tho chickens themselves.

Local Rating on Railways. MINISTER INTERVIEWED AT LISMORE. A SYMPATHETIC HEARING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 March 1914
Local Rating on Rail ways. . MINISTER INTERVIEWED AT L ISM ORE. A SYMPATHETIC HEARING. Upwards of 200 people, the majority of whom were farmers or rural pro ducers of some kind, attended at the local Mechanics' Hall on Friday after noon to sunport the deputation that waited on the Minister of Railways (Mr Mackinnon) to ask for the abolition of the local rating system on new lines. It was at the instance of Mr D. S. Oman, M.L.A., that the Minister adop ted the usual course of leaving his de partmental office and going into the coun try for the special purpose of being "de putationised," but the representative nature of the gathering, and the keen ness displayed in the question at issue, amply justified this departure from the usual procedure. Practically every agricultural centre along the whole length of the Gheringhap-Maroona line was represented at the interview. Among those present were a number of members of the Gheringhap-Maroona Railway Construction Trust., who had held a trus...

LONDON NIGHT CLUBS DRINK AND DANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 March 1914
LONDON NIGHT CLUBS DRINK AND DANCE. Then; was a time in modern English history when the night-bird was with out honor - a rather disreputable crea ture indeed, good enough in a music hall song, hut not nice in a drawing room. Two-ln-the-morning courage might he all very well (for other people) hut two-in-the-moruing plea sure wa.s only excusable at a ball. The Institution of the niyiit club is beginning to change all that, writes a member of "The Dally News" staff who is in touch with West End life.

PUCCINI INSPIRED BY BARGES [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 March 1914
PUCCINI INSPIRED BY BARGES Slgnor Glacomo Puccini, the famous Italian composer, who has been pay ing a lightning visit to London, went last night to a rehearsal of "The Dar ling of the Gods," which Sir Herbert Tree is reviving at His Majesty's Thea tre, for the composer is in search of a subject for a new opera. "The chief reason for my presence in London to-day," he said to, a "Daily Express" representative, "is pressure of private business. But, at the same time, whenever I come to London I am always glad of the opportunity to visit the theatres, for I am a great admirer of the English stage, and so it comes that I have made up my mind to see 'The Darling of the Gods/ in the hope that it might prove to be a suitable subject for an opera,. I shall do my best to visit a rehearsal this evening, for I leave England for Italy at an early date. "I have seen 'Mr Wu,' and I liked it very much, both for its originality and the splendid manner in which it is staged. "I may tell you," he add...

WIRELESS ROMANCE [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 March 1914
WIRELESS ROMANCE A boy and girl romance, which wuh thought to have ended ton years ago through a proposal being lost in the post, now promises to end happily after all, so it is reported (nays the New York correspondent of "The Daily News a.nil Leader" on Decem ber 80), following the arrival hero from Europe of Mrs Francos Tomp aon, a Scottish widow. It was the use of wireless telegraphy that repaired the error of the old fashioned mail system, for during her passage across the Atlantic Mrs 'romp son received by Marconigram a pro posal of marriage from an old suitor, Mr F. Macintyre, who Is now living at Superior, Wisconsin.

OFF THE EARTH! NOVICE'S ADVENTURE ON SKI. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 March 1914
OFF THE EARTH! NOVICE'S ADVENTURE ON SKI. (By a special correspondent in "The Daily News and Leader"). I i *°U soon learn that winter sport in the Alps means really ski-ing. The skaters are a small and artistic class apart. Toboganning is a healthy and vivacious sport for children and those who are child-hearted. Sleighing,^ well wrapped up in furs, with plumed horses and bells a-jlngle, is for rich Germans. Bob-sleighing Is excellent communal fun, requiring considerable skill for such a run as the full length of the Cresta. But ski-ing is for those who are* young and adventurous, who love to range on mountain slopes instead cf a rink behind the hotel, and who are sound in wind and limb. rThe man -who is just beginning to wonder whether he is too old at forty and is a newcomer looks upon the young ana ruddy ski-ers at the hotel as an elderly farmer regards Hamel at Hendon. Ah! new bloq.d, supple limbs, and exquisite skill! The lucky young rogues! He merely listens with interest to t...
