FARM AND GARDEN. PREPARATION OF BONES, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 8 October 1881
FARM AND GARDEN. PREPARATION OF BONES, &c. IN the Rural New Yorker, a correspondent asks a cheap way of converting old, dry cattle bones into manure; and their value in com- parison with that of barn manure. He is answered by Professor E. \V. Stewart, who says: - The method of reducing bones depends upon their condition. Green, tough bones are very difficult to gri.id, and the appropriate mills arc too expeusive fur indi- vidual use. Hut " old, dry cattle boues" « h:,-;h have lost nearly alt their animal mutter j'roiu lo-, -z erasure to the air, will bc found jg TC a.- andean ofteii be gr««ndít4t¿*£ij %av!G'¿. ..rukea with a hammer, m a**^^ mill, or iu a strong corn miii.

¡ TliJá luuikesljttrií Cjpnirle. I AND F ARMEES' ADVOCATE. ] SATUR DAY, OCTOBER S, ISSI. TUE Herald's Loudon correspondent, writing from that city on tile 27th July, opens thus: -"The old battle cries of ' Free Trade' and ' Protection,' willi the newer watch words of ' Fair Trade' and ' Reciprocity," are begin- ning to be baudied about with ominous frequency." What follows is also much to the purpose, and bears out much that is said in an ably written article in the Cumberland Mercury of the 28th ult., which, we may say, is one of the best on tho Protectionist side we "liave ever read. We have nj intention of discussing this question-though we may say straight, that as au abstract principle, we do not behove in Protection; still we are not so foolish as to shut our eyes to facts, for it is evident we shall, with others, whether we be iove it or not, have to accept the in- evitable. There.are unmistakeable " signs of the times" all around-in Europe, America, and Australia, and when i...

AGRICULTURAL AFFAIRS IN WILTSHIRE. A farmer, writing to Bell's Weekly Messen- ger respecting the state of agriculture in Wilt- shire, says :-There are many acres laid down to permanent grass, and but for considerable reductions of rent many tanners could not have kept afloat. Numbers gave their land- lords notice, and they wisely accepted the tenants' terms. Many are going in tor more stock and less corn, and none are so weil ott as they were five or six years ago.
