Teachers' Meeting 9 ^Contributed) A. teachers' meeting was held afc Horsham on Saturday last. A fair number were present but it was con* sidored that there should have been many more. Those who do not ats tend are felt to be losing much and it is hoped that more will tnrn up at the next meeting.

Exciting Bolt At 4 o'clock on Saturday Mr P. Hynes, of Glenisia, stopped in front of Crutona'e fruit shop, Horsham, .with his four-horse waggon, heavily laden with manure. Just as he alighted a motar cycle turned0£he corner in the direction of the team, causing the horses to dash oft at a gallop. Hynes managed to seize the nead of the off Lader, and very plucbily h-Id on, doing all in his power, at the imminent risk of his life to stop them. There were a good many on the footpiths at the time, and it was most exciting to watch the horses in their maddened state, as they appeared to be about to dash down the footpath in front of Barnes's chemist's shop. It was apparent now that tho bolt would have a sudden and violent end. The driver heroic ally managed to turn the horses across the sid<s street, but was quite unable to prevent cheiu from dashing at full speed into the brick wall of a shop, very narrowly missing a pepper tree himself, the wheels striking it and taking off ...

THE FARM. MANURING MANGELS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 10 April 1914

THE FARM. MANURING MANGELS. Experiments were conducted by Mr. John Porter. B.Sc., at six centres in Herefordshire on the manuring of mangels. All the dressings used gave a profit when the increase in the crop was valued at 12/ per ton. The ef fects of the manures .were striking in many instances, and in certain cases more than doubteu the bulk of the crop. It was found amongst other things that nitrate of soda used as a,, top-dressing at "rate of lewt. per acre immediately . after singling time has given an average increase , of 4 tons'5*cwt. per acre. Still, a second top-dressing of lewt. nitrate of soda about three weeks after singling time further increased the average yield by 22 J cwt. per acre. ' Nitrate of lime used as a top-dres sing at the rate of lewt. per acre has given an average increase of 31J cwt. per acre of mangels. Superphosphate (4cwt. per acre) in a. complete mixture has given better results than 6cwt. per acre of basic slag, so far as the weight of the mangels i...

REGISTRATION OF GRADE COWS. AN ASSOCIATION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 10 April 1914

t-REGISTRATION OF GRADE COWS. ASSOCIATION' WANTKD. There is an opportunity (remark* "Hoard's Dairyman") to establish registries for grule stock of the dif ferent breads whore records are re quired before animals are admitted to registration. For instance, a grade cow five years or more that has pro duced 3601b. <>f fat would be eligible to registration, hut her progeny could not be registered until it had made the required amount of fat. If this sort of a registry were estab lished it. would mean the elimination of all poor producing animals and would in time produce an exceptional dairy breed, for it. would only be a matter of time when all inferior ani mals would be eliminated. An association for the above pur pose would be "t immense benefit to the dairying industry, and. would in no way be antagonistic to the good work the special breed associations are doing.
