WINIAM. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

WiftlAffl. (From our own correspondence). Farmers are pushing ahead with harvesting operations, and as the the weather has been favorable most of the time, they have made good headway. On the 22nd, 60 points of rain fell, and being followed with cool weather it has caused some delay, hut the crops have not suffer ed. Some crops are yielding well, but most of them are scarcely coming up to expectations. In some cases rust is responsible, in others dead heads and shrivelled grain. The average, however, will be a good j one. Very little bay haB been carted, tho wheat crop3 being the fi^st con sideration. Where oats have been sown on fallow the rosults have been remarkably good and farmers are becoming very much in favor of J this practice. Mr G. H- Voigt, of! Sunnyskio has cut a crop, yielding over 2 tons per acre on fallow. On stubble land the oat crops are almost ! a failure. It is very noticeable that j the stubble land dots not produce oat I crops as it used to, and though tho ' fa...

I The rural workers of the Morfclake district have struck for the log rate as set out by the Australian Workers' Union, viz., Is O^d per hour and keep. The farmers declined to accede to the workers' demands, but offered Is an hour, the men to " find " them selves. The men refused to ac cept this offer, and consequently no laborers are employed. The farmers \ are determined not to pay such an exorbitant rate, and are helping each other in harvesting their crops. By working in this manner they will suffer little inconvenience.

A CENTURY OLD SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

A CENTURY OLD SCHEME. Some, bnfc I feel sure not many of mv readers, may have met with the statistical account of the colony of New South Wales published in 1S17 by Wentworth, the poet, anil the title page tells us " A Native of the Colony." j The author, whose statemanlike genius | rose in a most surprising fashion above 1 its terrible environment, propounds in his pages many suggestions, most of which have long been more common places with us. There is one, however, that is worth recalling at the present time when our Commonwealth Legisla turo is struggling with the problem of founding a Bureau of Agriculture. In his somewhat stilted English or grand iose periods he puts forward a sugges tion that the Government of the colony, which then consisted of one man, Macquarie, should be made representa tive of the people, and among maoy other things that to ensure proper attention to and protection for produc tion there should be estab'ished an experimental farm away from Sydaey, where t...

AN OLD TIMER. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

AN OLD TIMER. An interesting story is going the rounds of the papers just now res pecting the recollections of an oU companion of the poet Gordon with whom lie was in horsebreaking partnership in the south-east of South Australia many years ago. The old man's story is in the main correct though on two important points he is very much wrong. He is,lfor instance, very insistent in his statement that he and Gordon were the heroes of the ride from the wreck and gives a very graphic ac count of how he and Gordon, when out in the paddocks, hoard of the wreck of the Admella and debouch ing on the coast by short cuts known only to themselves, were enabled to carry the first news inland, and so cause help to be sent round from Portland. Unfortunately, Mr Living stone, M P., by whose father Gordon and MuUaley, whose recollections are now being told were employed at the time, is very positive that Gordon knew nothing of the wreck for over a fortnight after it occurred, and this tallies with th...

DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. Under usual conditions, the cow yard is a serious handicap to good dairy products. It should be set up on a well-drained piece of land with . the slope away from the milking- j shed and dairy. The use of gravel is to be recommended, and some have employed concrete to make sure that the cows are kept away from mud and filth. The yard should be kept clean, and the manure removed promptly and conserved at some con siderable distance from the miiking shed or dairy premises. This pre caution will also greatly help in keep ing down the number of flies. The practice of milking in unsuitable sur roundings is possibly doing more to retard progress in dairying than any other existing custom.

COWS HARD TO MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

COWS HARD TO MILK. There are two methods of treating the hard-milking cow. One is to use teat plugs or dilaters. They are merely plugs made so that they may be inserted in the end of the teat, where they remain between milking periods. The reason a cow millts hard is because the sphincter muscle, v.hich contracts the end of the teat, is j-igid. The teat plugs remaining in the teat between milking hours have a tendency gradually to distend and dilate this muscle in such a way that the cow eventually becomes easy to millc. The second method is to cut the teats, thus weakening the sphincter muscle This is accomplished by a leat-splitter, an instrument cJiat is in serted into the teat. By pressing the end, small knives are pressed out in such a way that when the teat-split ter is withdrawn the muscle is sever ed. There is really no reason why one should utilise his time with hard milkers when by use of these inex pensive instruments they may be ren dered easy milkers. One precaution tha...

WEBER—HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

WEBER—HALL. A correspondent writes: — An interesting overt took prlace on Saturday, 29th November last in the Methodist Church, Blackwood, S.A., when Mr Leslie W. Weber, of Nhill, was united to Miss Florence Mary Hall, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs Leonard Hall, of Blackwood, S.A., the clergyman being the Rev. C. G. Carvosso. The bride, who entered the church on the arm of her father, looked charming, and was robed in ivory silk, with court train, wearing the usual wreath and veil, and carry ing a shower bouquet. The brides maids, Miss S. Hall, sister of tho bride, aud Miss D, Weber, were prettily attired in cream delaine. The bridegroom's attendants were Mr II. Billet (best man) and Mr J. T. Munro, junr. The little church was prettily decorated for tho occasion, and re flected great credit on those respon sible for it. After the ceremony a large number of guests sat down to tho wedding breakfast which was held in tho hall. After partak ing of the good things provided, Mr Carvosso p...

THE REJECTED COW. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 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 lie 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 row fortunately become so general throughout the State that farmers would be well advised to introduce the rule that at all sales an authen ticated milking record should be pro duced with each cow offered for sale.

WHEN.TESTING MILK. The apparatus for testing milk should bo kept on 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 acid will absorb the moisture from the air, and thus become weak ened.

PRUNING CITRUS TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

PRUNING CITRUS TREES. Many people differ considerably In their opinions as to the proper way in which citrus trees should be pruned, j The majority persist in the belief that, these trees require only to be thinned j out and liave the dead wood removed. Much depends upon the construction placed upon such statements. If, as j 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 as to leave the main inside branches de void • of foliage. Nevertheless, it is i 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 usel...
