HIS LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 14 May 1914

HIS LINE. A little lad from the slums was in- J vited to a charity dinner givou at the J house of a lady in society. When din ner was over, the lady asked the little ones to sing or recite. When it came to the little lad's turn, ho made no effort to sing or recite until the lady spoke to him. "(Jome on, Tonn.ny. Let me hear you sing." • 'I can't sing, lady," said the lad; "but I'll fight any of the other lcida in the room!" . - - -

500 LADS FOB TM FARMS. By the S.S. ""Indrapura," which •is expected; to reach Melbourne on the 27-th May, another party of 500 lads,, who will be available for work on farms or stations, or in any other suitable country employment,, are coming to Victoria from Great Bri tain, and farmers desirous of obtain ing their services are. requested, to make early application' to the Immi gration and Labor Bureau,. 555 Flinders Street, Melbourne. Over 400 of these lads arrived dur ing the month of April, and their services were quickly availed of by farmers, many of whom have since eommunk?ated with the Immigration Department expressing satisfaction with the lads. Extracts from about 50 letters from farmers received at the Immigration Bureau in the course of two or three days have been, for warded to this-office, and they afford very clear indication that on iiie whole the lads are proving to be of a . very desirable stamp. Their ages run from 10 to 20 rears, and, though- mostly without exper...

Murray Graydon, Author of "Matthew Quin," "The Curse of the CardewB," etc., etc.^ 'v _______ PART 10. CHAPTER XXVI. SHATTERED HOPES. A silence fell on the two, and thus they stood for a brief space in the moonlit, scented garden, their eyes downcast, their ears deaf to the mur mur of the sea and the echoes of dis tant revelry. Speech would not come to Dick. He was thinking of the poor girl's words, and to himself he ad mitted that they were partly true. He had been carried away by en thusiasm and hope, but now he was face to face with sound reasoning. There might be no secret exit — no steam-launch. And even if he found them, and within five weeks, a thou- | sand things might happen to prevent i escape from the island. " Mary, I will be f^ank with you," j he said. "You are right ; it is more than doubtful if I can discover this hidden passage out of the lagoon. But I can still bid you...

CLIP THE UDDER. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 14 May 1914

CLIP THE UDDER. Tt is not uncommon among dairy cows to find, the udder covered with a tlense growth of long air, which, al though it may bo of some protection to the tidder, nevertheless, from the standpoint of sanitation and comfort to tho cow during milking, is a detri ment. Under ordinary farm condi tions the hair is generally covered with filth, and even in the best kept dair ies, unless clipped, will collect some dust and filth. Furthermore, because of the location, it is highly probable that some hairs will find t-lioir way into the milk pail during milking. In order that such conditions may not occur, these hairs should bo clipped close once or twice each year, thereby preventing collection of fifth, and per mitting greater ease in washing the udder. It has been my experience that "kickers" are also developed when breaking heifers to milk because of these long hairs. When the milker grasps the teat during milking the surrounding hair is included, and with each stream drawn th...

LUCERNE AS A FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 14 May 1914

LUCERNE AS A FERTILISER. Some interesting evidence with re gard to the fertilising influeuce upon ttia soil of lucerne, owing to tha capa city of that plant for absorbing free nitrogen from the atmosphere and con voying it to the soJ through the roots, is contributed by Air. H. Jacob, of Miidurai:— "Having previously had good crops of maize by tlie application of farm yard manure, I have this season had one, if not the best, under another system of treatment*. This ciop grew on an average 9 or 10 ieet in heigni., It was the healthiest and darkest green possible, and not the slightest £">gn ot yellow leaf underneath. _ The JoJhw rng are the facts concerning this ci op —In altering my land I had occasion to plough up an aore of land which had been under lucerne for 15 years. .Before that 1 grew barley on it. but the ground^ refused to grow any more, and the last crop was hardly worth cutting. 1 put it under iucerne, .vl ich grew splendidly.

HUMUS! WHAT IS IT? ITS RELATION TO SOIL NITROGEN [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 14 May 1914

HUMUS! WHAT IS IT? ITS RELATION TO SOIL NI'JTiOG-K.N To many this article may eeom su perfluous,- but we tliink it seasonable to fully explain its meaning and its value to plant life. . Seasonable, because tho majority ct our farmers have muoli stubble ov ti«* li that can be converted into the very necessary soil constitutent. WHAT IS HUMUS P Humus is derived troni the gradual decay of any vegetable matter that may l>o turned, into the soil j tills is hastened bv its gradual incorporation with the soil, combined with thorough working and exposure to the atmos phere Where it is lacking the all important soil nitrogen is absent. Tli© organic portions of our .soils might be just the same in both light (easily worked) loams and our heavy olay; lands. The humus or decayed form is always noticeable by the smoky or dark appearance that the soil pi e sents. Sandy soil devoid of humus is very light in colour, but a good sandy loam is always recognised by Vis dark'appearance. The same appl...

A WOBD FROM A "TEETOTAL WOWSER.. to The Editor^ Sir;.—Your Irst week's correspon dent '- The Great Gander" seems highly interested in the show. Speaking as one of the so-called " teetotal wowser party" I have wondered if the Gander belongs to the right-minded people. Who are the people comprising1 the A. and P. Society? Well I will tell' you Mr Gander—they are a most honor able body controlled by teetotlers,. whose motto is not to taste, touch handle or allow strong- drink to come to the show ground. A temperance booth hurts no one, corrupts no moi'als and sends no souls to hell. If the Great Gander had an ounce of pluck lie would have fought the '' teetotal wowser party" in- the open. It is a mean man who throws stones at his neighbor from behind a fence; I am quite prepared to fight the temperance question with the Great Gander in the ©pen. at one of the society's meetings ©r through the press.

DRIED VEGETABLES AND GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 14 May 1914

DRIED VEGETABLES AND GRAIN. While dried fruits have long been familiar articles of food, the process is now applied with success, especially in German}*, to such fresh vegetables as potatoes, beets, and green poas, and to grain of all kinds. A writer in the tievue Scientifique attributes the great popularity of dried vegetables in Ger many to the high price of meat, which makes it pay to feed stock with forage of this kind, to the moisture of the cli mate, which interferes with keeping the crop in its fresh state, and to the ex istence of great stretches of sandy soil, where sufficient roots may be grown in one spot to Bupply a factory.

ENSILAGE MAKING THE BEST WEED-KILLER. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 14 May 1914

ENSILAGE MAKING THE BEST WEED-KILLER. Of all the vegetation pests Uiat are antagonistic to profitable gram grow ing, it is almost invariably agreed that wild oats is the very worst. "Almost" is used advisedly, as there are yet those who favour the letting of the wild oats grow during the grass rota tion period as freely as they will for the feeding of the stock. This weedy stuff, of course, is turned under after seeding at fallowing time, but this, even admitting that wild oats furnishes good feed, is pronounced by the most experienced man as a fallacy. To endeavour to kill wild oats by plough ing them under, oneo they have at tained the seeding sta«;e. has been proved to be not only 1 utile, but ono of the greatest evils wherever prao tisid. Wild oats, it is found, can only bo killed by ploughing oh em un der in the green stage, immediately af ter sprouting, or harvesting them bo fore seeding.

CROSS-BREEDING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 14 May 1914

CROSS-BREEDING HORSES. Plie JS'ew Soutli Wales Stock Depart ment .makes in its last annual report a vigorous attack on the system so pre valent of cross-breeding horses. It points out that breeders who do that, are not content to coniine their work to th<£ animals they keep .about their own farms, but they send representa tives of these crosses to the saleyaxds and the shows as studs. The result is a collection of ugly brutes^ with few good points.and 110 merits worth both ering about. - The report deprecates the practice7of crossing light and heavy horses of various breeds in order to got good hacks. The hack might be right enough in some cages, but when the males are kept as stallions the evil is perpetuated. This is sound doctrine. It cannot be gainsaad. Every au thority in tho world who is wortli lis tening to condemns it unflinchingly. Yet in New South Waltfs, from whence this sensible report emanates, there is the spectacle of two stud farms belong ing to the Govern...

OF RURAL INTEREST I (By "Rusticus.") There were some matters of general interest dealt with by the Chamber of Agriculture at the last quarterly meeting. It was reported that the attempt to hold a conference of the States 011 (the question of the bulk handling of wheat had not met with success, owing to the faot that organi sations in other States did. not think that any good purpose would be served bv the conference. • The chairman (Mr. McLellan) said that bulk handling would" come in New South Wales in time, indeed it would be adopted by all States in the fulness of time.. It was a big matter, and the Govern ments must proceed carefully. The chamber expressed itself as opposed to an increased duty on superphosphates, which must raise (the price. No legis lation should be passed which would di minish the production. The chamber was also opposed to any further duty on sheepskins exported from the Com monwealth'.

POULTRY FEEDING—VARIOUS METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 14 May 1914

POULTRY FEEDING—VARIOUS . METHODS. The question of feeding is on aJJ fours with that oi bousing; there ar 2 many different methods and systems, all »of which have their ardent sup porters and. opppnents. It reminds nie of the proverb—"One man's meat is another- man's poison . " As in the matter of housing, it is impossible for a hard and fast rule to , be laid down for a system of feeding which shall be eqitally suitable for all plaoes and climates. Thei diet suitable for a per son living in; say, .Fiji, would not bo the most suitable for some t»no in the Antarctic: regions, and the same reasoning applies to our feathered friends. Of course, the same diet would possibly sustain- life in both the geographical' extremes just mentioned, but in treating of the feeding of fowls we do not' merely want to feed them in order to - keep them alive, but so that the best return in the shape ol: eggs may be had from them.

" EXPERIENCE v. GENERALITIES. TJiex'e are no liars like statistics, it. has been said, and our memory is al ** ways lying to us; with mere statistics of our past experience. All the thought of the world is full of them, for it is all based. upon memories, and there is nothing to correct these but the quick ness of present experience. That is what Walt Whitman meant when lul said that to look with the eye confounds the wisdom of ages. It is not that each ono of us now is 'wiser than any wise man of the past; but that all wis dom has th© past for its material, and can therefore be correctcd by an ex perience of the moment. We need not be wise iu our own conceit, but. we must not allow the wisdom of others . to dull the freshness of our own exper ience. What some great man makes out of his memories may be better than what wo make out of our own; but it must not take the place for us ol ■ what happens to ourselves.
