THE GARDEN. INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 17 April 1914

THE GARDEN. ?INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. In regard to the experiments witti tomatoes at the New York Agricul tural .Experimental station, Mn Wel lington has found that a crop of hy brid plants of the first generation give a larger yield than either of the .parental forms, or of the succeeding generations /'after' the "break." The results suggest and seem to warrant the use of first generation seed only if the main object be the production of a heavy crop; Of course, 'It en tails all the extra care and trouble that artificial fertilisation means ; but Tomato fruits, as a rule, pro duce a large number of seeds, which, so far, is some compensation arAinst t"he extra trouble: Tomato seeds .re tain their vitality, it is said, for from three to seven years ; therefore itk would only be absolutely neces sary for seed-growers to raise every third year a sufficient quantity to cover tiie needs of a three-year sale.

BRANDING OF HIDES. OUR PRESENT WASTEFUL METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 17 April 1914

BRANDING OF HIDES. OUR PRESENT WASTEFUL METHODS. ! .The great waste- of money entailed by our present method of branding . cattle is a subject which periodically crops up inl the newspapers and lea ther trade journals. It never ap pears, however, to get past this stage, for the same injurious method of applying hot irons- to the best part of an animal's- hide still con tinues. In this connection it is point ed out by the "English Farmers' Fed eration that the difference in price of leather, were it not branded, is probably 3d. to 4d. per lb. Then, again, raw hides, if not branded, would fetch Id. per lb. more, and, as | these hides '-weigh' from 601b. to 805t>. . the difference in value is very ap ' preciable. The Federation-advocates | either an alteration of the method of branding, or that the animals be branded with " smaller brands, on the checks, ears, or flank-not. on the rump or the back, as is at present nearly always done. They consider that this would be equally distin ...

But the young Englishman fouud none-Mary Ferris excepted-to share his melancholy that morning. Prom end to end of the cruiser all was ex citement and eagerness, light-hearted laughter and jesting. Home was in sight-a haven of refuge and rest. Groups of men picturesque in cool, white clothing, stood looking for ward from the bulwarks.

The gap of the past six weeks, un eventful though it was, requires a brief mention.

High Temperatures and the Eye. 1 The naked eye has always been the means employed for indicating high temperature, such as the melt ing of metals or heating them for rolling or forging. Until the py rometer made its appearance (says the "Hardwareman") the eye* was the only method employed for de termining the temperature. While more or less inaccurate and suscep tible to^ the personal equation, the eye is still used in the majority of" cases. The following table will serve to indicate the temperature of -a body as shown by its colour Beg. G.
