Two speies of platil known in coainmoh English as- Medicks, or moi·o scioibdlfic .aily, as belonging to itle genus Medic ago, should appeal to Austrah?na gr zlers' (says an article in "Dalgety 's: Lit view.") The name of the plaint is said bo be derived from the wor1d "Me dike," the name given by the Grecian Scientist Diocorides. to a grass obtained by him fromr Media. The term, how ever, oonveys but little to the. average Australian; n but when he is informed that lucerne is one -of its species-l-that plant being known botanically as Medi cago sativat--that -trifohum, or clover, is another, and that there are about forty other useful fodder plants bear~ ing the same generic title, lie will at once: grant that the world of agiicu! ture owes a very large debt indeed to the genus Aledicago.

THE CANN SHOW [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 March 1914

THE CANN SHOW The annual show of the Cann River Agricultural Society was held on Tues day and turned out a great success, al. though the weather was not very favor able. Heavy rain fell in the morning, but the afternoon was line. The ground wvas slippery and several falls occurred whon the horses were being shown. Some of the district people were de tained at home from fear of being cut off by a flood. There was, nevertheless, a very good attendance, and the exhi bi's of preserves, fruit vegetables, flowers, green maize, etc., were excep tionally good, the display in the shed being, so we are informed, better than that at Orbost. We hope to be able to publish the prize list in next issue.

THE WEATHER [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 March 1914

- THE WEATHER Orboat bhas been favored with a few light rains during the past week, 56 points being registered altogether. We are becomingly grateful for small mer cies, but would like a great deal more, although the rain holding off has been fortunate for the bean-growers. Judg ing from the feel of the atmosphere yes terday there will be more rain before long. In other parts of Croajingolong and in Southern Monaro very heavy rain has been experienced. On Tuesday a telegram was received sating that there had been six inches at Nimitybelle, where it was still raining. There were gdod rains at Genoa and the river has been in flood. On IMonday and Tuesday about two and a hallf inches fell at the Cann, the fall extending to within ten miles of Orbost. All the rivers along the coast east of Cabbage Tree Oreek were up on Wednesday, but except for a good fresh in the Snowy yesterday the rain has not affected this part of the district to any considerable extent.

EFFECT OF DRAINING ON THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 March 1914

.EFFECT OF DRAINING ON TIIE S :-;iSOIL. The most important restilt is that it eniakes:.the.sdil warmer. - Aw?et soil is cold, .ichiefly because the water in it is constantly evaporating, and ovull ration is a cooling pi)'ocess. 'To illustrate this: If the.bulb of one thermometer is covered with a wct muslin, and'the bulli of another similar thtrmometer ' is left uncovered, the wet thermomcter may register as niuch as 15 degrees cooler wiseli both are swung in dry air. This is duie to the cooling effect of the evaporation of the water. Moreover, water is a poor conductor of heat; wet soils warm in. the- sun slowly, beoouse theo. water they contai holds down the -:temperatilroe: There is urally a dif ferenco of 5 to 10 degrees between drain ed and undrained soil in the same field In fact, the temperature of a soil i summer is very largely determined by the amount of water it contains: the wetter it is, the colder it is -Warmth is' one of the chief essentiils for the ger mnination and ...
