SUBTLE CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

SUBTLI, CRITICISM. The small boy stood in front of the dazzling light of the cheap theatre with a yellow dog under his arm. Eridenrtly heo wanted to get in, and the sight of a well-dressed and apparently prosper ous man on the steps gave him an idea. "Are yo the m:anager of the show?' a:,ked the boy. It turned out that he had giuessed correctly, and the lad continued : "I want to see the show, but I haven't got the money. I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll give you this dg if you'll let ue ill." Tihe manager's heart melted. Fie remembered that he too had been a heboy. 'aYou may go in," he said, " but aerer mind absiut giring me the dog. Talke the dog along with yon." lThe lad went in with the yellow dog under his coat. After the per form ance the mannger was still standing in front, and happened to see thle urchin camnt out. "Well, sonny." he remarked, "how lid you like the show?" "l')h. pretty well," he said; "buLt I'm i lad I didn't have to give you the dog." - - Muni's the word whe...

SALT AND SULPHATE OF AMMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

SALT AND SULPHATE OF AMiMONIA. It is well known that the application oi common sale to the soil has a beneil oial effect on the growth of many crops. Its use dates back to the very earliest times-in the days of the 1RIoninns it was a well-known manure in Itly. Accorlding to a note in IMr. Aikman's book iu manures, the "Persians and the Chine-e seem also to have used it from rimoe inmemorial.': When there was a heavy duty on salt in England anrnlers nlear the coast used somletimes to apply sea water to their land in order t get the beeft from it. Saltl--clt ride of sodiuin-is a chemicaI combina tion of chlorine and soda; is is probab ly the latter substnceo which chiefly ex ercises a beneticial effect. Mr. HaIl, director of the Iothamsted Experimenial Station, has directed at tention to the value of the soda in the nitrate of soda. He has found that when nitrate of -soda is used it is not so neces?ary to applyp potash salts, be cause 'the soda can bo made to do some of the wortl usua...

FOOD FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

FOOD FOR PIGS. , The A.ricultural "Gazette" is re sponsible for the statement that no iractical or scientific arrancemeul of foods can beat skim milk and bai ev ineal in the prodnution of (ual. titv and Inuality in pork. thogCh per Iaps a little wheat middlions. so. ronds, or pollard may nmake the diet ary more perfect. especially for young pies. Whatever combination of foods is used. it should. therefore. balance closely to a skim milk. bar lcv meal. and pollard standard. All cereals are rood for pork produc tion, but the general rise in their price. as compared.with that o. 20 years aco. puts calculations a:; to the cost of pork production on an other basis.

ECONOMY IN ENSILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

ECONOMY IN ENSILAGE. One must not get the idea that oows can not be made to produoe efficiently without ensilage. There are other feeds that are good mill? producers, but,. unquestionably, ensilage is the most onenomical and efficient feed for roughae that the farmer ovn grow. It is a product so easily handled, so nutri tious, and succulent, and produced at so lP1- a cost, that the dairyman,'even with a "truck patch" farm no bigger than five or ten acres, will find it to his advantage to put at least half of it into maize, with which to fill a silo. Remember that a few acres well tilled are better than many poorly tilled.. A yield of twenty tons or msore of en silage to the acre is possible where proper tillage, fertilisation, seed and ":are are used. Figuring conservatively, suppose you get ten tons to the acre, a very common yield. This, on five acres, would till a fifty-ton silo and feed te, cows for nearly 365 days ('30 lbs. ensilage per day). A little hay and grain would need t...

DRYING FRUIT BY DEHYDRATION [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

DRYING FRUIT BY DEHYDRATION A new process for drying fruit which has come into favor in some auarters of California is that of de hydration. As against evaporation it is claimed for the new process (1) that it costs less; (2) is much .uicker in operation (apples, it is stated, are treated in 55 minutes to mne hour); (3) all frint and vege table products analyse the same as they do before dehydration, for the system eliminates nothing but the water: (4)' uniformity of all pro ducts dried, regardless of weather conditions: and (5) that fruit and vegetables dehydrated by the system advocated keep indefinitely. One hvdrator company advertise that their plant food comliU s of four compartments,, viz.:--(1) For cool ing water to be used to cool air;: (2) for cooling air which is to be used for drying the fruit, the object be iu to free this air of its moisture by cooline to a temperature of 50 ler. Fahrenheit; (3) for heating the moisture-freed air to 130 deg. Fah-. renheit to increase it...

THE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

THE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAL. The too closely penning of pigs (ex cept while topping up) is a mistake. In a state of nature the pig is a grazing animal. For breeding and growing pigs, a grass outrun is profitable. Admitting that pigs must be fed differently, from other stook, when housed, yet grass is still a natural food to them, even as it is to horses and cows. Pigs graze as close to the grund as sheep. It is sometimes stated that pasture deterior ates under cows, but whether this be so or not, pigs benefit pasturage, and rapidly improve poor quality grass.. Even the very youngest pigs running with the mother will graze a little, but should be given some other food as well. Shade and shelter are neces sary. Sunburn is to be guarded against. Even. with larger pigs, a sudden change from dull to sunny weather during the hotter portion or the year means sunburn. When grass is plentiful, store pigs of all ages can be run on it cheaply, and need but very little trough food. With regard to ...

Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY t _ANNABEL GRAY. , CHAPTIER IV. THE COLONEL IMPROVES THE OCCASION. Colonel Stamper was one of those fas cinating men of pleasure whose fixed code consisted in the notion that when men were blessed with faculties of en joyment, and Fate denied them the means of gratifying them, they must wage a deadly and unscrupulous war against ill-fortune till the hag was fair ly conquered. He was a flaneur with the experien ces o eiglity crowded into his forty summers. He lived for pleasure, in deed, it was the sole business of his life, and was one of those amiable chil dren of Nature who will pursue with ardour anything feminine that comes in their way provided there are lively ob stacles to be overoome, and the chase does not necessitate too great an outlay of time and skill. Educated at one of our best public schools, he was not there conspicuous for any great mental perspicacity. He was now fond, as he called it, of tak ing things easily, though he was yet...

THE CULTIVATION OF OATS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

THE CULTIVATION OF OATS. Oats are cultivated on a wider acre age than either wheat or barley, and it is expected that during the cominag. spring, a still more extensive area wil' he dev.actd-to the crop if the weather is faobrablo during the reparLtion' of tl, land. It is very important that -he seed should be entrusted to the soil al, an early date. If the grower should nate been fortunate in this respect and has selected a variety suitable to 'he .o cality; if he has also cultivated the land well and taken care that itlo plants have a sufficiency of suitablo nourishment at their disposal, he can then antioipato with some confidence that he will harvest a satief:i:; or-s crop. A sufficienc3y of suitable iounr:sihmesit. That is most important. Howu can it be best supplied? It must be remembered that the crop from start to finish is only about ive months in the ground, and thi-ie fdre the fertilisers should be 'urnished in a quickly-acting form, otherwise tho crop will not be able to...

RAISING LAMBS FOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

RAISING LAMBS FOR MARKET. "Mr A. Woolfoid, of Beetaloo Valley, (S.A.) recently contributed a paper on this subject at a bureau meeting. He advocated obtaining young merino ewes say, four tooth, of good frame, and crossing thoem with a Shropshire ram. If the ewes lambed early, say in April, with good feed the lambs should be ready for the early markets. F?rom this cross, big lambs with good wool should be obtained which should do well and fatten quickly. He had found his district very suitable for sheep. There was a good averagei rainfall, and a good suppl, of grain, which kept green ncarly all the year. The locality was also suitable for woolgrowing, the wool being heavy and greasy. He advised growing lucerne for topplig off. Cattle. were not so profitable as sheep. Mr. F. Bartrum considered the district unsuit able for lamb-raising, as the holdings were too small, and feed was always late. A bad drop in the .booket-a cow's foot.
