THE GARDEN. THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

TttE THE ORCHARD. As soon as the leaves have fallen, old fruit trees, which nre covered with moss and lichen, should be attended to. These moss-covered trees, harbor all kinds" of Insect pests during the winter, and form i a veritable breeding: ground. A caustic alkali wash is the best-known means o£ cleansing the trees. It not only removes all moss and lichens, but also any loose bark, and causes the tree to assume a bright and healthy appearance. The destruction of these growths does away with the winter quarters of the. woolly aphis, codlin moth, grub, etc., etc., thus preventing them increasing to such great extent as they otherwise would have done. Besides these, certain scale insects are kept down by the caustic wash. The wash is prepared as follows:—Dis solve lib of commercial caustic soda in water, then lib of crude potash in water, separately. When both have dissolved, .mix. them together, stir well, and add water to make lip ten gallons. At the wash has a burning effect on...

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. Advantage should be taken oC the change iii the.weather to push on with the transplanting of vegetables. Pre- j vious plantations should-be-looked over, I and any failures . which. • may have oe- 1 eurred made good. I It Is quite time attention was'paid to winter rhubarb. Remove all the' old outer leaves, and if the plants are grow ing in sandy soil, give a good top dress ing of rich stable manure. If growing on heavy soil a dressing of manure. should be lightly forked in.. .Care must . be taken not to disturb the roots' too much. „ ■ Potatoes intended for early planting in June should now be placed out thinly In: a cool, airy she<3 to ripen, and also to form eyes. This will cause them to send up stout, sturdy growths, arid will tend to ensure a successful crop.

An Agricultural Adviser. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

An Agricultural Adviser. The trustees of the late J. H. Angas, of South Australia, and the "Willowie Pastoral Company, also of that State, liavo engaged the ;:2rvices of Professor .distance, who will, in the future, act for them in the capacity of agricultural ■'adviser.' .Mr Custance was -4'hc first principal of the Itoseworthy!t fc\£Ticul tural College, Soutn Australia, and It was while acting there that he gave evi dence before the Victorian Koyal Com mission, and pointed out that the lands of Australia would readily respond to the use of phosphatic manures. Subse quently in his annual report to the Gov ernment:, Profesor Custance strongly recommended farmers; to use superphos phates, and It was on his advice and as the result of experiments carried on by him at Roseworthy, that the use of arti ficial manures was first practised in Australia.

Second-hand Bags. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

Second-hand Sags. It has been decided by the Flour Mil lers' Association in Sydney that during the incoming grain season, a reduction oC 2d will be made on wheat put up in second-hand bags, as com pared . with the price of wheat in new bags. Members of the As sociation gave several reasons for this action^ In the first place, millers nver that it Is not fair that a farmer getting up his crop well, and in new bags,should only get as much for it as the man who saves money and soes in for second hand sacks. Secondly, it is stated that second-hand bugs cannot stand n long sea journey nearly as well as new sacks, and that practically all the complaints that have been jeceivefl from the East regarding bud shipments and waste have resulted from the fact that the wheal was sent in second-hand sacks. Thirdly, and this is an important point for consideration, some of the n:embers of the trade state that the use of second hand bags is aeountable to a large ex tent for the spread *T weevils. Su...

A New Potato. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

A New Potato. . Glowing accounts have been published in British agricultural journals of the character and quality of a new potato (Solanum Comrnersoni Violet.) In an ar ticle in the: "Mark Lane Express" the following: are given as special features of this new potato:—1. Unsusceptibility to. dampness, and therefore well adapted for cultivation in wet soils^ • ; 2. .Resisting power against disease. '•3. Excellent eating qualities. " 4. Great productive power, 50 to 100 per cent, over the ordinary kind. The Solanum Comrnersoni has its ori gin in South America. It grows wild on the banks of the rivers of Uruguay, where it produces small yellow tubers about the size of. a hen's ess, 'possessing a bitter taste. It was first reported upon by { the botanist Comrnersoni, who no ticed it growing on the moist banks of the river Mercedes, n«ar Montevideo.

Pure Milk. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

Pure Milk. A large portion of the impurities which find their way Into milk get there at milking time. Perhaps not one per cent of the dairy farmers in Australia brush ( and clean the cows' teats, udders, and ' flanks before milking begins. If the cows are not cleaned or brushed just be fore milking,more or less loose hair and dirt falls, into the milk pail. This can be entirely prevented by brushing and then washing and drying the cow's udder just before milking. In dairies where sani tary milk that does not sour for several days is produced, the cow's udder /is, al ways washed and dried immediately be fore she is milked; the milker then washes his hands, puts on white suit,and milks into a covered milk pail provided with only a small opening Jn the cover to milk into . Careful work of this kind protects the milk from many Impurities, and it in creases the consumer's desire for more milk; when1 he .knows that such' precau tions are taken against impurities .get ting intofthe milk. ...

Scarcity of Butter in Canada. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

Scarcity of Butter in Canada. An event occurred in Canadian butter circles last February, the "Canadian Grocer" states, which is without prece dent in the history of the Canadian .trade, namely, a shipment of Canadian butter io Great ■ Britain was returned without discharging at an, English port, on account o£ prices being higher in Canada than in the old country. The butter in question was shipped at 10y&d, and was brought back to sell for 12V^d or upwards, at a small profit, on ac count of the freight for the round trip not being more than a half-penny per lb. The spurt in the Ca-nadian market was caused in the first place by the entry"of United States buyers, and in the second place by the comparative bareness of the market. A similar state, of ;/ffairs occurred in connection, with Victorian butter several years ago. A ■i sudden shrinkage in the milk yield at | the end of the autunfn caused prices for ) butter to rise so high that hundreds of ' tons of Victorian butter we...

Color of the Noses of Shorthorns. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

' Color of the Noses of Shorthorns. A correspondent in the "Live Stock Journal", London, who signs himself "Old Breeder," calls attention to what he describes as the indifference of breeders arid judges of shorthorns to the color of the noses of the animals. In years gone by a black or spotted nose was fatal to the chances of any animal of the short horn breed in the showyard, but "Old. Breeder,"- who gives ventilation to the subject, has noticed that the ; proper ideas respecting clear noses are inclined to be come less rigid, "While it may be Possible that the younger,, school of breeders in Great Britain are less fas tidious and exacting in the matter ''-''of colored noses, it would hardly' be correct be say that the general idea as to the marking of the nose has undergone any change. The offended breeder states that that when judging at a recent show he rejected what he . otherwise considered the best animal because of its nose be ing of a distinct blue. "But," the "Field" (Lond...

POULTRY POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

FOUX7RY POINTS. I*arge flockfe of fowls will not do nearly bo well as sjiialler ones, and It ivlll al ways pay the breeder to subdivide bis yards Into small divisions to accommo date from 25 to 40 fowls in each pen. Nature should be studied to a certain extent in rearing poultry of any kind. If fowls have to be kept in confinement, the conditions under which they are kept should be, as nearly as possible, the same as when they are allowed their freedom. The primary cause of a fowl becoming: crop-bound is through its eating long or fibrous grass, or other material which c'.oses up the passage from the crop to the glzard. It is, therefore, necessary to see chat all green food Is chopped up fine before being fed to poultry. Do not defer improving your general flock of poultry. Every delay means loss of profit, and without a return of this kind, interest In poultry keeping will soon died out. There is one time to make a start in purphasing good breeding stock, and that time is now, and ...

THE MILLION STAMP FALLACY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

No reason has ever yet been given enabling anyone to understand why any sane person should want a mil lion used postage stamps of no indi vidual value; nor how,' if he did want them, ho could use them to secure admission to a hospital—unless, that is, he merely explained to the gover nor of- a hospital that the possession of a million old stamps gave him in finite pleasure, and the governor ad mitted him to the hospital at once. It-does not matter. Still, year after year, in the face' of all argument, old penny stamps will go on being col lected, and the same foolish legend will bo handed down;— •"The Spcu tutor.

FARM AND FIELD. The Potato Disease in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 11 March 1910

raw and rittB, The Potato Disease in New Zealand. The potato digging season in New Zealand having commenced, the growers are now able to gauge the full extent of the. damage that has been caused by the blight. Its effects, according to the reports in the New Zealand weekly newspapers, have been widespread. Not a paddock appears to have entirely es caped. Some crops, however, are affec ted much more than others. Those, which were planted early are only slightly affected, but most of those which ■were sown late are In a deplorable state. In these crops some roots have escaped altogether, while others have only one or two diseased tubers under them, but thPre are other roots again which are • completely rotten. Farmers are in a dilemma. Merchants refuse to buy any potatoes that are lifted In paddocks affected with the blight, owing to /the difficulty experienced in getting them passed, the inspectors having received, instructions to reject any lots sent to market which show traces of t...

CHEAP BRAKE FOR WHEELS. The brake, as sketched, is one piece of iron, shaped like a ladies' slipper, ex cept for a heel, into wliich the wheel fits. It is of iron, lin. thick, the front end turned upward and brought nearly to a point in which a hole is punched (b), and a ring inserted. The shoe Is bent "slightly on each side, so that the wheel slips in readily. To hold it, a band' projects in each side; high enough for a bolt hole, as at a. 1. . • ' At the top of a hill the teamster can I place tlie shoe in front of the wheel, fasten a strong chain in ring (b) and to the side bar of, the waggon box, well forward. The chain prevents the brake from sliding back beyond th? wheel. A strong bolt with a nut can then be screwed through the bands (a) directly | in front or back of a spokeand the rim of wheel. It should fit the .wheel rim I quite closely and be screwed up with a wrench. When the team starts, the wheel goes forward on the shoe just enough to take up the slack-of the chain. Th...
