LUCERNE AS A FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 9 May 1914

LUCERNE AS A FERTILISER. Some, interesting evidence-with re gard to the fertilising influence .tipon 'the soil of lucerne, owing to tha capa city of that plant for absorbing free nitrogen from the atmosphere and con veying it to the soil through the root?, is contributed by Mr. H. Jacob, oi Milduxa:— "Having previously had good crops of maiza by the application of farm - yard manure, I have this season had one, if hot the best, under another system of treatment. This crop grew on an average 9 or 10 feet in neigh-. It was the healthiest and daruest green possible, and not the slightest sign ot yellow leaf underneath. The 1'olltw ing are the facts concerning this ciop —In altering my land I had c-ccasion to -plough up an aore of land -which had been tinder lucerne for 15 years.

"New York Produce Review" has been asking its readers to give their «experieric<3 of feeding Vhey to young stock. .Here are three of the replies received:— 1st. —The whey should' he clean and fed irTclean troughs.

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspoiideub.) The cost of living looms largo in the eyes of every-citizen, and. for . those who, have to* 'look cai;efully.! to; the outlay of each' shilling, ft. is becoming (every week a nioi-e serioiis "matter.. Increases are taking place t in every. I;direction, c There was something ap proaching a panic at the prospect opened up recently by the "revised-' list of prices for groceries. It was represented that this was agreed ' to by the association, and, therefore, there would be 110 option but to pay them or go without many of the tilings that are regarded as 'the necessaries of life. Happily, however,- there has been a breakdown in the combination respon sible for the issue of this "revised." list, and just now the position is. not so alarming as it looked at the out set. Still, there is the growing ten dency among retailers to get together for ithe purpose of putting up prices, and the consequent ever-present possi bility of continued adv...

CURIOUS OPTICAL ILLUSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 9 May 1914

CURIOUS OPTICAL ILLUSIONS. A curious optical illusion is some times seen as a motor-car passes, the wheels of the moving vehicle appear ing for an instant to stop, or .even turn backward. In an'investigation reported to the Royal Society, Pro fessor A. Mallock mounted a card board ili.so with spokes on a flywheel, and when this was revolved so rapidly .that the spokes could not be seen or ■ easily followed . by 'the eye, and a slight mechanical shock of almost any kind was given the observer, the spokes appeared almost stationary for a frac tion of a second. Shocks' having this elftct were given in many ways, such as in the -contact'of-the feet with the ground as in walking, by tapping the head or body, or even by rapidly blinking the eyes. It- was proved that the appearances depend on the speed of tne rotation, the brightness ot' illumination, and to some degree on tlie na>ture of the shock. The ex planation ..was offered, that the shock produces a momentary loss or variation of...

PRESERVING BUTTER. A TESTED-METHOD. A contributor to "Hoard's Dairy mail" gives the following recipe for preserving butter, which, he Bays, has no equal or superior:—Churn and then wash well the butter in several cold waters so as to thoroughly remove every trace of the butter-milk. Drain well, spread it thinly, and salt to suit the taste, sprinkle the salt thinly over every portion of it. Work well, drain again, and set in a cold cellar of even temperature or in a refrigerator until next day. Then work it again by means of a butter ladle, and pat it into little cakes the size of an egg, and pat each of these (one at a time) until thin as a wafer, so as to drain off all the water possible. Pack in earthern jars, filling with 1 in. of the top. Next wring a white linen oi" miislm cloth from cold water (cutting it to la'p a little over the jar), and on tho top of the cloth put fine salt until it comes level with the top of the jar.
