The first operation- consists of: remov ing superfluous shoots from the stem and main arms of the vine, exccpt the two shoots issuing from the spurs left at the last winter pruning. On the shoots from the spurs depends the coming sea son's crop. Any shoot otherwise situ ated which may short- fruit or ho re- i quired for shaping the vineMs also left.

A- fowl often lays double yolked ' eggs (says the "Agricultural Gazette" 'of Great Britain). This weakens the organs,, and often causes .soft eggs to be laid afterwards. When fowls are over-fed and become very fat internally, they frequently pro duce soft eggs; also when they hav(T been laying a long time without a rest their organs naturally get weak, es pecially if they lay large eggs. Their oviduct, or egg-passage, Is wonderfully constructed. It is attached to the ovary, where the eggs form' first. They hang much the same as a bunch' of grapes, and can be seen by a microscope when not larger than the point of a pin.. They are so ?constructed that the largest ones are at the bottom of the ovary, ...

ELECTRIFICATION OF CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 February 1911

ELECTKIFICATION OF CROPS. I Sir Oliver Lodge, the eminent English experimentalist, in the course of a re cent lecture at Birmingham on the elec trification of crops, said that of all the problems which were receiving and yet awaiting attention,. the absorption of nitrogen by plant life was one of the chief. -Acting in combination with what was already > known, it would powerfully affect,the,,;power,of the i<rl | tlsh nation to feed itself tind to lessen the extraordinarily large amount of im ported food.. '. 1 Discoveries-were (ready to be made in the direction of the reclamation of bar ren soils, the influence of strong sun shine and of heat upon soil in preparing it for seed, and the disinfecting of soil, ?and'thereby increasing its fertility. Thla last process was understood to destroy ; the opponent's or devourers of useful and co-operating bacteria. The latter consequently multiplied to a prodigious extent, and the soil, became . far mora fertile than before. . An...

For In stance, in the majority 'of':cases'-when lameness occurs in the hincT'legs there is something wrong with the hock, but lanehess in the fore leg generally means there is'something wrong with the foot joints. It is not enough, however, to assume that you have found the seat of the lameness because a certain part of the leg is hot, for the shoulder may be hot although the lameness is due to the foot. The proper way is to reckon up all the symptoms that are apparent before Coming to a conclusion.
