THE HONEY SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 February 1911
THE HONEY SEASON. The amateur bee-keeper is generally too anxious to gather the season's stock of honey. In his haste he takes off a super and removes it a short distance from the hives, fondly imagining that it will be safe whilst he removes one from another hive. To his great surprise, on his return there is a perfect hub bub, bees from far and near have scented the sweets and are helping themselves. Splendid sections have been made of second or even third rate quality , through this. ? The bees have perforated the cappings, and from these holes honey escapes, and the sec tions are said "to weep." If a board the size of the brood chamber be used, arid this fitted with a Porter bee escape in the centre, no trouble will be ex perienced and perfect sections will be the result. Place this board below the rack to be removed the previous even ing, and next morning not a single bee | will be left in it.
BEEKEEPER. THE QUEEN BEE. REMARKABLE FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 February 1911
I BEEKEEPER.. THE QUEEN BEE. REMARKABLE FERTILITY. Referring to the fertility of the queen bee, Mr W. Abram, the New South; "Wales beekeeper, states that in Winter, when the bees leave off work ing, the queen stops laying eggs. As some bees die daily during that time the. hives are weak in number in early Spring. With the advent of warmer weather breeding commences again, and the queen will lay 100 or 200 eggs per day, gradually increasing the num ber, and by the end of August 600 or more eggs are laid'every day. .Atj now the young bees begin to hatch, the queen's laying capacity extends, and she lays more than 1000 eggs a day. The old bees from last Autumn die in ?Spring, but young ones in larger num ber take their place, and thus the hive gets stronger. The queen has by this time almost reached the maximum of her laying capacity. About 35,000 eggs have been laid in 20 days, or 1750 per day, and these brood cells cover 700 square inches of comb. If circum stances favor the queen sh...
SMUT IN MILLET. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 February 1911
SMU'lV IN MIIJTJET. - During tho past year a fungus dis ease" of millet appeared at various places in Iowa, United States. The bo tanical" section of the Iowa experiment station found, upon investigation, that :the .disease was millet, smut, a trouble very common in the millet growing sec tions of Europe. It was probably, im ported into America in seed brought from Germany. _ Prof." Pummel found that the disease can bo prevented by soaking the seed for two hours in a solution of one pound of Vormalin to 15 gallons of water. The weakling, the bad tlirlvor, the narrow-chested beast, should never be allowed to sire any offspring. . Nothing is of greater importance to a dairy herd than the choice of sires.

A WORTHY ACHIEVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 February 1911
A WJRTHf ACHIEVEMENT. &lt; .. It is an old adage and a true one "Timo proves all things.' It docs, and in Australian affairs it is specially ap plicable.. Fifty years'ago everything Australian was at a discount. The Land of the Southern Cross was send ing only tho crudest of its products, .0uch as wool, 'hides, bones, and tallow, to tho other side of tho Equator. There was just one exception-tho gold. Tho yellow shining metal was never ovor .looked-nover discounted. Every other thing that was produced or hailed from this sunny land was "no class." It was tho fashion to consider it so. Aus i tralia had not up to the sixties-nor, indeed, till much later-produced any | oarsman, cricketer, swimmer, billiard - player, or inventor who could wrest tho | championship from' all comers or hold 1 his own in tho big competitive field. It was only after tho century had closed that tho sons of Australian pio neers proved that as soldiers and horse men in a guerilla campaign they had no su...
Gas Explosions. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 February 1911
Gas Explosions. Following explanation of the above appeared iu the "Daily Telegraph": Sir,-In reference to the late dis astrous explosion, I would like to givo the following reason for the ex plosion in daylight without any lighted match. Acetylene must be generated in a large excess of water (not less than 1 gallon per lb. of car bide) ; . there must be completo de composition of carbide and (most important) removal of all air from gasometer before filling with gas. Owine to intenso heat in generating, benzine begins to condense; then, as the temperature lises, it yields sfcyro lene: A further rise in temperature causes benzine and styrolene to inter net, and at this poiut a brown vapor nppearB. This carbonises in the atmosphere, or forms a deposit on the sides of the generator, aud any friction, such as robbing with a piece of flannel, will couse sparks to be produced, and so l*e the impuro gas letained. Puro gas cannot oxplode.-Yonrs, etc., J.H.P.
