Wanurp, Another old pioueer of 40 years' standing is leaving this distiict in Mr J. Cant, who is departing for the mallee, where he has a con siderable holding. Mr Cant is a very temperate man, and had the courage to hold his clearing sale on temperance—lines, and with Mr P. Herrick, of the -o'd firoi of John Watson and Co , to wield the ham raer, he Lad no reason to feel sorry for what he had done.. Taking the dry spell into consideration, it was just about the best clearing sale that has been held in this district for some time. A good send-off to an old neighbor. I learn that Mr T. Watson has made arrangements with a real live citv firm to manufacture his drill. Considerable improvements have been effected to the drill since ths tiial at Tennvson last year, and big sales are expected.

He hied away to Sorrento last week and sought to breast the breakers in .a manner worthy the best traditions of Rochester. At his first venture his- desire to emulate the doings of the mermaids of ihis saucy spot, two or three baby wave lets \Vcre successfully nego tiated. When the daddy wave took a hand in the fuu ourtowusinan cut a sorry figure.

Soil Bacteria. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914

Soil B&cteria. The bacteiia which fix the at mospheric nitrogen require lor their growth and developement air, light, warmth and moisture, and for their nourishment vegetable matter yield ing carbonic acid. It is, therefore, necessary to aerate the soil by tillage so as to give free access to the air, light and moisture, and to briug it into a favorable condition to retain moisture. The beneficial action of the nitrifying bacteria lakes place only in the layers of soil to a depth where air. light and warmth penetrat-? easily and abundantly. Such soil may be called "mellow." At a greater depth, to which the nir peuetrates with more difficulty, another species of bacteria of an unfavorable char acter comes iuto activity, viz , those which retransform the .available nitrogen into inert combinations. Therefore the surface soil should not be turned up beyond a limit depth, say not exceeding six inches Below this depth the subsoil should be broken up by deep sinkiug. so that the p...

This Formula Really Makes Hair Grow. Some time ago I read in a paper a formula for a preparation which was claimed to destroy the daudruff germ and to strougly stimulate the hair growth. In spite of the fact that I had already tried rnauy preparations without beuefit, and my hair was thin and falling out very fas!. T decided to give the formula a trial. Accordingly I got my chemist to put up 3ozs of bay rum, lox of I,avo»a de Compose c, and l( dram of Monthol Crystals, and applied it legularly every morning and night, rubbing carefully into the scalp with the finger tips. Much to my delight aud astouishmfnl the in tolerable itching ceased with the first application, the dandruff dis appeared, the falling out of the hair ] stopped completely, and by the lime I had used four bottles I had a finer, longer, aud more luxuriant growth of hair than I ever had j before.

Making Lucerne Hay. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914

Making Lucerne Hay, Lucerne hay cures more evenly aud thoroughly iu the cock tbau iu the swathe or windrow. If left too long in the swathe the leaves become too dry aud fall off, thus being wasted. Such hay does not cure fully and evenly, aud is oftcu put into the stack in a partly cured condition. If hay is raked before the leaves are dry aud placed in cocks, the leaves continue to absorb moisture out of the stems, thus allowiug the hay to cure out fully and evenly. Lucerne well cured in the cock in this way will keep better in the stack than wheu cured in tbe swathe or windrow. Further, the scattering of the leaves which takes place when the curiug is done in the swathe and windrow reduces the yield aud tuakes the hay less pala table aud less nutritious. The practice, of the most ex perienced is that as soon as the dew is off iu the morniug to start the mower. After au interval of a few hours, before the leaves have beguu to get dry and brittle they rake the hay iuto vvindrows. Th...

Dodder In Lucerne. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914

Dodder In Lucerne, From the correspondence on ihis subject that reaches "The leader" from stock owners there would ap pear to be a very undesirable in crease going on in the distribution of dodder infected lucerne seed, Remedies for dealiug with dodder when once it gets into a lucerne field are next to useless, bccati.-c once there it is practically iuer^di■ cable, and lt-> presence is ruinous to ail the lucerne wilhln its reach The real safety is in .separating the dodder from the lucernc before sowing. To do this it is necessary to hand sift the seed. Dodder seed being much smaller than lucerne, is re movable by sitting through n wire sieve having 20 meshes to the inch. Ready made sieves of this size are not readily obtainable, but a cheap serviceable sieve for the purpose may be made by constructing a light wooden fiame about 1:3 inches square by 3 inches deep, and tack ing over the bottom of it 20 mesh : wire screen made of No .V2 (Ku lish gauge) round wire.
