MANURIAL REQUIREMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 4 January 1914
MANURIAL REQUIREMENTS. Experiments .devised with a view to ascertaining the essential inimum amount of available phosphoric acid potash required to: produce maximumn growth were made at the New ork AgriculturM Station. The crops used included barley, peas, tomatoes, tobacco, buckwheat, rape, and turnips. The conditions of tenmperattue and moisture were under control and Wero, as far as possible, regulated so as to fully satisfy the requirements of the plants throughout the experiments. The results obtained show. writes W. N. Jordau, considerable unifortity amongst the different crops. no ixol relation exists between the produetiou of dry matter and the amounts of phos Iphorous and potash utiiised.

CROSS v. PURE BREEDS IN CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 4 January 1914
CROSS v. PURE BREEDS IN CATTLE. As a general rule, most. of us think that in the production of pure bred animals, six crosses, as it is termed, with pedigree animals give us this re- suit; m other words, it we start with an ordinary animal, and for six suc cessive generations use pure-bred sires, then the results wi'l be essentially pure breeds in the end. That this is ruatihematically so is easily worked out. Lor instance, in the tirst cro.?ses, it a pure bred sire is used with an ordinary dam, we get a halt breed, that is to say, one half pedigree ,and one-halt non pedigree. At the second cross with a pedigree sire, again we get three-fourths pure, and one-fourth non pedigree. if we go on m this way, we will find that by the time we reach the sixth cross we have got. purebred, and only one sixty-fourth reverts an animal that is sixty-three sixt.s-tourths to the non-pedigree an cestry. This, therefore, is practically pure, and registration societies Will very often take fewer cross...
HOW TO PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 4 January 1914
HOW TO PLOUGH., The art of ploughing, if not lost, hae certainly been mucn neglected during recent years, and very tew of the younger generation or farmers have really acqumred it. In travellig through the country one sees repeated evidences of the lack oi interest in tbhi very important branch oI tillage con siderations. Ploughiug, as the first and heaviest operation in preparing the soil to receive tae seed, should receive particular attention. Many attributv the present day lack of interest in ploughing to the advent of the two lurrow or machine ploughs. In using two turrow or machine ploughs, it is iirst n?ecessary to acquaiul oneself with the workings and mechan ism or the plough, to be thoroughly tanuliar with it when in operation. Little or no diiiiculty will then be es perienced in obtaining satisfactory re- suits. A plough sutable to the soil should be c:osen. It the soil is loamy and requires to be turned hat, choose a plougt, with sulticient width or share, a board with a...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 4 January 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Speeial Correspondent.) It must be assumed that for reasons that may be surmised discipline is made to sit as easily as possible upon the men who volunteer for the Ex peditionary Forces during the prehmin ary training in camp at Broadmeadows. Otherwise there would be court mar tia!s and some pretty drastic punish menats. The tendency of soldiers to get out of hand is to be deplored. or course it is only a certain section of them. Feor the most part, the men are sensible of the need for behaving in seemly fashion, but there is a pro porvron of devil-:nay-cares who are easily led to excesses. The real cul- prits are the toughs who take all sorts of care that they will not volunteer but attach themselves to the soldiers, and instigate the outbreaks that are the cause of deep regret to the com munity, who are lisposed to do homage to the splendid young manhood stream ing -away to take their places in the people 'who from misplaced generosity people who rom mis...

EGGS FOR WINTER USE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 4 January 1914
EGGS FOR WINTER USE. Eggs preserved in a water-glass solu ion will keep almost perfectly for sev ral months. They will poach nearly s well as fresh eggs, although the aste is a trifle more flat after long storage. These are 'hlie conclusions of the Missouri College of Agriculture after a careful investigation of various methods of storing eggs for winter use Water-glass is purchased in liquor form. One quart is enough to preserve wenty dozens of eggs. For this num ber a five-gallon stongie or earthenware cro.k is the most satisfactory recep tacle.

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 4 January 1914
FOR WOMEN (By "Ambrosine.") A French soldier claims for one of the French lied Cross nurses, the high est decoration that. l'rance can bestow, the Cross of the Legion of Honor. It appears, Irom an article in the "Mlorn ing Y'ost" that as soon as the Ger mans entered Gambrai, the wounded French soldiers had a bad time of it, as the German soldiers seized every thing for themselves. "But," con tinued the narrator, "one of the Red Cross Nurses stuck by us heroically. She stole food from the' enemy, some times flour, sometimes rice, sometimes haricot beans-enough to keep us alive. But that was not the only thing she did. She knew that all of us would much rather be shot than be left as prisoners ;n the enemy's hands, though nearly all of us had families. Besides, she was a patriot, and said, 'If only you can get away, you will be able to go on fighting against the Germans, and that is so much gain for France!' So she set to work, and at last succeeded in collecting civilian clothes for ...
