"MILITARISED" COMMERCE. GERMANY'S INSIDIOUS METHODS [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
MILITARISED" COMMERCE. GERMANY'S INSIDIOUS METHODS' Though it may seem somewhat pre mature to doal with the measures that should be -taken after the present war to counteract the influence of German trade competition, a French writer, M. Pierre Baudin, attempts to do so in the Paris "Figaro." He asserts that for the last thirty to forty years German trade and linancc have left nothing un done to secure complete economic vic tory over all other European countries, and he takes the picturesque view that Germany has "militarised" commerce very much in the same way as Prussia has militarised the whole of the German Empire. In the economic war which Germany has long been waging on the rest of Europo there are to be found the methods so characteristic of Ger man military warfare. First of all, a perfectly equipped and splendidly organised commercial spy system, of which the army of German consuls and consular agents throughout the world are the intelligent and highly-, trained scouts. The...
EXPLOSIVES ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
EXPLOSIVES ON THE FARM. Frequently there are boulders in our cultivation paddocks which are too large to lift and put on a cart. These are ploughed round year after year. If they are not too big they can be got rid of by gelignite. To do this, take one plug of gelignite, attach a No. 6 cap and about three feet of tape fuse, place the charge on top of the boulder, and cover the charge with a "poultice" of moist clay (writes a New South Wales agricultural expert). Make a nick in the end of the fuse ami iusert a small shaving of gelignite, touch this with a match, and get well away. The result of the explosion will be that the boulder has been split in three or four pieces, and can then be easily thrown on a dray and dumped out of the paddock. This will prove' that the action of gelignite strikes in every direction, and not only upwards as is usually thought. Every man on the land knows what it is to put up a line of fencing at a time when the ground is hard. Under such conditions the ...
ASHES AS A SORT OF POTASH. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
ASHES AS A SORT OF POTASH. Potash is one of the chief manures required in the garden, and it is also one of the most expensive to purchase. The present European war has also had an effect upon potash supplies, as we chieily depended upon Germany for our supply. It has been found, how ever, that the ashes of hedge trimmings and other vegetable refuse, which usu ally collects very freely in a garden, is a valuable source of potash, and" usu ally contains from S to 12 per cent, of tfis element. The potash contained in ashes is very soluble, being in the form of carbon ate; the consequence is that the ashes to have £1111 value, must bo kept dry. Tt has been found that a light shower is Sufficient to wash out one-half of the potash, and rcducc the percentage from oight to ten, to four or five. The best method is, of course, to store the ashes dry until they arc re quired. If this is not possible, they should be used as a top-dressing on a growing crop. Crops that are greatly assisted by ...
CLEARING BRACKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
CLEARING BRACKEN. \ , How to get rid of bracken fern is a question that a correspondent replies to by saying:-"Cutting the bracken is of little use. Cutting seems to be simply pruning them to promote their .growth. The same with burning, the nioro they arc burnt the quicker ami thicker they grow. We find that bruis ing is the effective system with a hard roller made by the local blacksmith, encircled spirally with angle iron. The process is simply to keep pussing this roller, loaded to sufficient weight, over the brackens as ofton as they show new growth, and eventually this kills them right out." . "Not cutting tlicm in the height of the spring, and only once in the year," another correspondent writes, "may be useless; but cut them twenty times a year if they need cutting that often; in fact, cut them as often as you ean get a hit at them, with the fern, hook, so that the sun can shine fair on the grass to sweeten it, and the cattle will help keep them down by treading them down wi...
THE VALUE OF FEED AND CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
THE VALUE OF FEED AND CARE. Tlie effect of feed and care on the dairy cow was well brought out at the New Salem, North Dakota Dairy School. The four year record of 12 cows was given. The butter-fat production averaged 116 pounds the first year, 194 the second, 214 the third, and in 1913, 239 pounds. Tho production waa more than doubled in the four years. The cows were three to six years old when the records were started. The milk was weighed from each milking and tested each month. This very emphatic ally brings out the fact that to secure good production the cow alone cannot -4.0 it-she must have the feed and the caYis, "Have ;V'qu had your dinner yet, Joel" his friond called out.

Public Library. COUNCIL WILL MAKE PROVISION. WHEN MUNICIPAL OFFICES ARE READY. The local branch of the A.N. A. sent in a "chaser" to the berough council regarding a library, and some discus sion ensued. The Mayor (Cr. McMahon) said a referendum had been taken on increas ing the rate to provide a library, but the ratepayers voted it out. Itseemed a shame that they had no library here. They were in treaty for the purchase of the Town Hall, and if they secured it they could make provision for a pub lic library. Cr. Asquith observed that a library , wsuld be a boon to the town and good , for everybody, I A councillor mentioned that the let ! ter could be received. I Cr.

THE VALUE OF LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
THE VALUE CF LIME. Lime, as a help in maintaining for tuity of the soil, has now eomc to bo regarded as an important factor in agri culture. Somo soils would be benefited more by the application of lime than by the application of commercial fer tilisers. To most of our cultivated trees and plants a sour soil is distasteful. Some of the moro common agricultural plants which are injured by an acid condition of the soil, arc spinach, lettuce, beets, celery, onion, parsnip, cauliflower, cucumber, ogg plant, cantaloupe, pump kin, asparagus, cabbage, pepper, pea, tobacco, lucerne, clover, barley, wheat, oats, timothy, and Kentucky blue grass. Clover and timothy-two most import ant crops-arc quite sensitive to acidity in the soil. There _aTe countless ex periences whej'e clover "did not stand well" or "failed to catch" or was ''winter killed," until the laud was limed. In many sections, clover is re garded as the key-plant to tho main tenance of fertility. That soil which has clover in its...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
MELBOURNE LETTER kfrom our Special Corraapondent.) 'Sweet are the uses of adversity" we are told, and plenty of the people in the metropolis are just now in per fect agreement with the writer who said so-provided always that the ad vcfreity is suffered by the other fellow. The adversity through which Belgium's millions are passing is sweet to a lot of good peoplo who find in it an in ducement , to busy themselves in some of the many ways dovised to help the sufferers. But it is particularly sweet 'in that it permits of the breach ot laws that are irksome..-1'Or instance, _ the rulers of this country a few years ago decided in their wisdom that it was not good for the community, to indulge in raffles. This restraint of the gambling spirit that is rife amongst us-no moi'o so probably than in other parts of the globe-has never been relished. People will have their little gamble, and the provision made by which permission could be gained to carry on what the' legislature decided was a p...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST (By " Kusticus.") The figures compiled by tlic Victorian; Government Statist relative to the oat crop for the season 1011-15 emphab'.se the falling off in production which th; State, lias suffered. The oat harvest for the season was only 1,608,419 bush els, which is the smallest aggregate since the season 1857-8; aud, as far as can be guaged, the poorest ret-u/n per acre in the agricultural history of the. State. For the season of the last great- drought in 1902-3, the oat crop, from an almost identical acreage as that of tlio season just completed, gave a yield of 4,-102,.982 bushels, averaging 10.16 bushels to the acre, as compared with 3.7 for 1914-15. The season of 1903-4 produced the record harvest of oats yet garneerd in the State, namely 13,131,952 bushels, from a sown area of 433,638 acrcs, or 1,177 acres: less than that sown last season.

HIS EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
HIS EXPERIENCE. Writing from Bamawm, Vic., Mr. Win. John Vouill, late of llarveytown, Eagle hawk, Vic., says:-"In regard to the statement I gave you some years ago as to my cure of kidney complaint, I may say that a- short time since 1 had occasion to be medically examined, and was en tirely free from any complaint.'' Mr. Youill's original statement was a.s fol lows :-"I feel it a duty I owe to 3'ou, and to suffering humanity, to send you this letter, in the earnest hope that others who may be suffering as I was, from that dread complaint, Bright's Disease of the kidneys, may take courage, and learn from my experience to adopt the same method of treatment that I did, feeling sure that by so doing they will be saved much pain and misery, and, perhaps, an early grave. This may seem -.to some a remarkable statement to make, but it can be substantiated by anyone who will take the trouble to inquire for themselves from me or of my friends who were with me at the time. Despite all the ski...
