THE REJECTED COW. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

THE REJECTED COW. At present there is nothing to pre vent the rejected cow from finding' its way into an auction yard, or even into a clearance sale, to be again the subject of disappointment to another farmer until he similarly gets rid of it This can go on until through sheer age the cow disappears from the dairy farm, after being all its life an unprofitable drag on somebody. Unaer a better system the animal would be fattened for beef as soon as its milk-producing capacity, or rather incapacity, was discovered. Of course this immediate elimination of the unprofitable dairy cow does take place in innumerable instances, but it is obviously necessary that its fate should be automatically sealed the moment it is weighed in the balance and found wanting. Cow-testing has r.ow fortunately become so general throughout the State that farmers would be well advised to introduce itie rule that at all sales an authen ticated milking record should be pro duced with each cow offered for sale.

WHEN TESTING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

WHEN TESTING MILK. The apparatus for testing milk should be kept oil a lead-covered table, as the acid used in carrying out the Gerber test has not any effect upon lead. If any sulphuric acid gets spilled on wood, the wood gets burn ed up. Always keep the stopper in the sulphuric acid bottle, otherwise the add will absorb the moisture from the air, and thus become weak ened. Everything comes to him who waits, but hustle well while you are wait ing.

CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. I Proper cultivation of the soil in creases the nitrifying bacteria, and this, In turn, increases productive ness—a most important consideration to the farmer. The knowledge of bac teria and - their -work is. recent and limited; there are many in kind, and in spite of the amount of work done, scientists are only in the midst of (heir discovery. The practical far mer does well to let bacteriologists monopolise interest - in the whole subject, except in so far as he can provide some conditions that have been demonstrated to be profitable. The work of bacteria, hoever, must come more and more into■ considera tion by the farmer, because Nature uses them to produce a vast amount of the change that is going on around us. In the consideration of the na ture of legumes, we must take into account the bacteria which they have associated with them, and through which they obtain the atmospheric! nitrogen. It is true that bacteria must; have favorable conditions that ou...

PRUNING CITRUS TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

PRUNING CITRUS TREES. Many people differ considerably in their opinions as to the proper way In which citrus trees should be pruned. The majority persist in the belief that these treeB require only to be thinned out and have the dead wood removed. Much depends upon the construction placed upon such statements. If, as is generally the case, such an expres sion conveys the idea of merely cut ting out the dead wood- and thinning parts of the tree where the foliage is very dense, it does not. go far enough. An orange tree bears the greater part of its crop on the outside branches, and while plenty of light and air are needed in the interior of the trees, this does not imply a neces sity for hollowing it out, so aB to leave the main inside branches de void of foliage. Nevertheless, it is necessary that much of the inside growth should be removed, so that what is allowed to remain will be well spaced and well lighted, other wise it will become starved and barren, making it useless, and an...

RENEWING OLD FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

RENEWING OLD FRUIT TREES. When fruit trees become stunted and diseased either by-old age, bad soils, or unskilful management, they should be headed down or otherwise renovated, or else cleared out and young ones planted in their stead Most trees may be renewed by head ing down, which is the simplest mode —indeed, all trees, excepting the peach, nectarine, and cherry, will be much improved by being headed down on their showing aymptoms of decay on their showing symptoms of decay tion the whole of the head or bran ches of the tree should be cut oil in a careful manner, with a saw if their branches be large, and with a knife if not of large dimensions. If the saw is used, smooth ;J:he.cwpund over with a sharp knife, and make the cut, in a slanting direction for the pur pose of allowing' the water to run off, freely.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS. With a small outlay for practical ex periments a farmer can learn more in a season regarding the requirements of the soil he cultivates than in any other manner; and the value of such knowledge will enable him to produce the largest possible crops with the smallest expense for fertilisers. " He can dispense with such materials as he has proved to be not necessary on his soil. On the other hand, he can add an extra quantity of any ingre dient with his experiments show to be especially necessary. • .

A True Story.

Mr. YouilPs original statement was as follows: "I feel it a duty I owe to you and to suf fering humanity to send you this let ter, in the earnest hope that others who may 'be suffering as I was from that dread complaint, Bright's Disease of the Kidneys, may take courage and learn from my experience to adopt the same method- of treatment that I did, feeling sure that by so doing they will be saved much pain and misery, and, perhaps, an early grave.
