THE FARM. CLOVER SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 April 1914
f THE FARM. i 4 CLOVER SICKNESS. The old idea that clover sickness is d;ic to the .exhaustion of some soil constituent essential for the growth of clover is now disproved (writes a contributor to the "British Journal of Agriculture"), and-it has been de finitely shown that the disease is of parasitic origin. Unfortunately, two distinct parasites are equally capable of promoting the disease-the one bc 1 ing "eel-worm," Tjlenchus devasta t.ri.T. and the other a fungus called | Selerotinia trifoliorum. Eel worm Disease. - The earliest ! symptoms of the presence of the eel worm disease is a yellowing and wil ting of the leaves of small patches of clover. The patches gradually in crease in size as the disease spreads, and may be easily noticed from a distance. Eventually the leaves dro0T> and die, leaving hare and scorched i looking patches .in the crop. The above symptoms also exactly des cribe the general appearance ca-sed j by the fungus-Selerotinia trifolio ! rum-but the true caus...

INTERESTING APPLE EXPERIMENT. THE USE OF LIGATURES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 April 1914
INTKRKSTING APPLE EXPERI MENT. THK USE OF LIGATURES. A most interesting experiment i« reported from Tasmania in regard to apple-growing. Some trees of the Al friston variety appeared to be bent on producing wood instead of fruit. Ligatures were applied to the trunks of five trees on January 14. The ef fect was remarkable. The apples on the trees be-ran to change colour flt once, ijRtii b\ the end of February they wore nearly all ysllox, an.i in splendid condition for export. The, ligatures consisted of stout wirps. tightly hound round. As soon as the fruit, was gathered this was removed, and then the trees made nearly a foot, of wood before the leave* fell in the autumn. Another change no ticeable was that the- frwfting bran ches made better development. Bunions.-Paint them every second day with iodine till the soreness dis appears. 1923*

VALUE OF RYE CORN. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 April 1914
VALUE OF RYE CORN. . The value of rvc is most apparent after root crops have been a partial failure, and in such seasons a large area of it is sown. It relieves the strain of providing keep, and forms a connecting link be tween winter and spring feed. Tt is very wholesome and not relaxing to the bowels like rape greens. It en courages niilk in owes and makes a pleasant change for lambs, especially if they are allowed to run forward through creeps. It is also an excel lent preparation for roots, aird is grown as a catch crop between them and the previous corn crop. After it shoots into ear it ceases to be of value as sheep keep, hut may be cut and carried to horses. It may even be left for seeding as a corn crop. Rye straw comes in very useful for thatching, and many farmers make a practice of sowing a small area every year in rye for the sake of the straw.

THE DAIRY. + _ .. HEAVY ROOT FEEDING. ' EFFECT ON THE MILK YIELD. All experiment was recently tried by Messrs.- Lauder and Pagan at Edinburgh on the effects of feeding an extra quantity of roots to milk cows' with regard to the results on the milk yield. The quantity and quality ot the milk WCPC noted,".and incidently a test was made how (ir turnips would replace the expensive food commonly used for feeding. The turnip ration was as follows per. head daily Bean meal, 2tb; bran, 21b. ; turnips, 112Tb. ; hay, : 15tb. ; having an albuminoid ratio of 1 to 11. The concentrated ration was : Bean meal, 21b. ; bran, 21b. ; ' peas' meal, 41b. ; dried brewers' grains, 21b. ; turnips, 40lb. ; bay, 151b. hav ing a ratio of 1 to 7.6. Among the conclusions arrived at is that the richest/milk was not obtained from the ration with the largest amount of digestible fat ; that, indeed, more fat was found in the milk than was fed in the rations, and that therefore the digestible carbohydrates of the "f...

I-.-.. ' '.?* Sound Advice. ? 'The Muddleton footballers were re turning home after having defeated their opponents, and consequently several of them had a surfeit of spirits. As the train drew up at a small stat ion one of the party who.appear ed to bo more foolish even than the others, and who was sucking a Wo-for-a-pe»ny cigar, popped his head out of the carriage window and addressed an elderly man who was leading a donkey. ' " 0«' much'll yor take for the moke, guv'nor The answer staggered the youth1 and convulsed those within hearing" distance. "You've enough to do to keep yourself, lad, without buying an other, so draw in your head, and mind your ears against the sides o" the window." A keen-eyed but obviously poor ly-educated settlor in a colony in. its pioneer stage took his over grown son to a country school. "This 'ere boy's arler laming," ho said to the schoolmaster.

Channel Tunnel Cost. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 April 1914
Channel Tunnel Cost. - -i "Trains could bo running through the Channel Tunnel by about Christ mas, 1920," 'said Mr. Arthur Fell in a lecture at the Royal Society of Arts. .Engineers now consider that tlic tunnels could be completed at a cost estimated at £16,000,000 to be raised over about six or eight years, one-halt" to be found by England, one-half by Frnnce. The £S,000,000 to be raised by England would probably bo in £4,000,000 of debentures and .'£..1,000,000 of shares". If the sonic fares which are now [ charged by the steamers were char i ged by' the tunnel company," ho ! added, ."the shares should pay very large dividends."
CHAPTER XV. DICK'S TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 April 1914
CHAPTER XV. DTCK'S TEMPTATION. Dick had hoard all the foregoing conversation, and he realised what it meant. He knew that the pirate con templated another outrage, and ouo infinitely worse than the shooting of Luke Radford. "Must I stand by and see it ?" he said to himself. "They will take this woman by force to tho cruiser, and she is probably well-bred and a lady. > The captain is right ; she had much better bo dead than fall into such hands ! I can't play a passive part muc'iv longer. If I bad a pistol I should be strongly tempted to shoot that scoundrel, Jason Gore. And it 1 might be just as well for mo, ior I i am a doomed man, anyway. I can't i see a ray of hope in the future." At that moment there was a stir of! curiosity, aud Dick's comrades closed compactly in front of him, blocking his view across the deck. Me shifted his position and looked. The captain was at "the head of the companion way, supporting on one arm a young and most beautiful girl. Her slim figure showed ...
