PREPARING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

PREPARING THE LAND. Much has been heard during the last year or two as to the value of explo sives for sub-soiling land intended to be planted with fruit trees and vines, and some authorities have made out, on paper, strong arguments in favor of their use. The lecturer In viticul ture and fruit culture at the Rose worthy College, South Australia, how ever, is. doubtful if the work by such means can be performed as effective ly and economically as with teams and the ordinary implements used for the purpose. He considers that by adopting the usual method of sub soiling a more uniform layer of soil will be obtained to a depth ranging from 18 to 24 inches, and the cost of such work may be put down at be tween £4 and £6 per acre. On the other hand, he reckons that to secure equally satisfactory results with ex plosives the cost will work out at £20 an acre. In a comprehensive article in "The Journal of Agriculture" Mr. Laffer speaks highly of the English ditching plough, which is designe...

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. The value of the cabbage as a feed for dairy cows is fairly generally known. It is a succulent feed, is highly relished by cows, is an ex cellent milk producer, and is rich in protein. But whilst its value is rea lised, many dairy farmers have a rooted obection to it on account of its liability to impart an undesirable flavor to milk and butter. This ques tion is dealt with by a writer in a recent issue of "Hoard's Dairyman." After observing that the only objec tion to feeding cabbage to milch cows is the flavor imparted to the milk, he proceeds to point out that, when fed under certain conditions, this objectionable feature can be avoided. One of the first precautions to observe is to keep the cabbage away from, the shed at milking time. Milk absorbs odors very quickly indeed, and if the cabbage odors are near the milk it will be tainted. An other precaution to observe is not to feed the cows just before milking; any "high-flavored feed, in fact-tur nips for...

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

THE FLY7 IN THE DAIRY. As a.n intance of the numbers or bacteria the common fly can carry, the following figures given by Pro fessor Easton may. be cited: - He caught 100 flies in a kitchen, put them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about/and then examined the water, and found that he had rais ed such a numbeiv of bacteria off that o each fly averaged over 300,000. Ho next caught a similar number in the cow barn, and they averaged over 800,000 each, another 100 in the pig pen, and they^averaged over 1,000,000 each. It may be said that when one goes into a factory or house and finds many flies, one is immediately justi fied In condemning the sanitary sur roundings oE such premises. One can appreciate the fact that in factories where flies abound it is next to im possible to keep them out of the milk, and the seeding of the milk by the bacteria which they carry must be very appreciable. The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising, as too many of us seem t» think the fly a ...

COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. Come now to the actor's everyday life. If you are a comedian you can't get any sympathy. Ever hear two men discussing the illness of a co mediain? Jones will say, "I hear Jack Cannot has appendicitis." "You don't say," grins Brown. And then they both burst out laughing. If an actor happens to be a tragedian it is the other way about. Every happy little episode in his life is referred to with bated 'breath. ''Did you hear about H. B. Irving winning a thousand at the ponies?" Smith 'will say. "Dear me," Robinson will reply; and they will look as if they had "been asked to have a last look at the body before the lid is screwed down. -Fred Niblo on the disadvantages *of being an ac tor, in "Theatre Magazine."

WORK THE SOIL NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

WORK THE SOIL NOW. All orchard soils should be kept well worked during the summer months. It is very essential that these should have an abundant supply of moisture during the whole of the growing season. The transpiration from fruit and foliage is considerable at any time but during the hot and windy weather the amount of mois ture which is required by a tree, and which is ultimately transpired from the tree, is very exceptional. Excessive transpiration is often the cause of loss of young trees and of new grafts. They are found t« part with a large amount of moisture, and are not able to retain or obtain suf ficient for their nourishment; they then very soon wither and die. The iioll e,round these should be kept well stirred, they should also be given a good straw mulch.

"BE A WOMAN." [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

"BE A WOMAN." "Be a man" is an injunction which implies that one is endeavoring to aim at achieving all that is best in manhood. No one would dream of stimulating a person's ambition to loftier ideals by bidding him "Be a gentleman." Likewise, there should be no offence in the use of the word "woman." The dignity of the word, no less than its homeliness, ena/bles it to be applied not to any particular sections which can be marked off aa having more of the good things of this world than the others, 'but to all, from the Queen on her throne to the humblest in the land who is contri buting something through her woman liness towards making the commun ity around her richer <by her devotion to duty, her tenderness, her self-sacri fice, and her love.

ABOUT THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

ABOUT THE HORSE. The Arabian National Stud Book, Vol. 1, has been published in Amer* ica, and Sir Walter Gilbey has writ ten the preface, in which he states that up to the present time more than 4000 distinct works, in various lan guages, have been devoted to the horse, and among these are nearly ninety in Araibic and Persian, which are specially devoted to the Aral) breed. The history of the horse showB that there have been two distinct types in Britain since the time of JuliuB Caesar. This breed of horse <waa the anxious care of Parliament from a date prior to the time of King John; and it is noted that the weight a riding horse of this type had to 'bear, jvith its mail-clad rider and the plate armor with which it was protected, might be upwards -of 4ewt., or 32 stone.

DON'T WORRY. The Plague went forth in the land, and one met him asking if he could stay his cruel hand. The Plague an swered that he meant to ibe merciful; he would only take Ave thousand from the earth. Some time afterwards the«e two met again. . , . "So thou art a liar as well as a mur derer," said the other to the Plague; "thy five thousand meant fifty thou sand." "Not so," answered the Plague. "I took but my five thousand-Fear and Worry killed the others."

HOW TO MANAGE A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

HOW TO MANAGE A WIFE. "Never ask a woman to mend any thing," said the cynical old Paterfa milias. "When I watit a garment mended I take it to my wife, flourish it around a little, and Bay, 'Where's that rag-bag?' 'What do you want 'With the rag-bag?' asks my wife. Her suspicions are roused- at once. 'I want to throw this thing away. It'u worn out,' I say, with a few more flourishes. 'Let me see it,' nty wife says. Of course, I pass it over and she examines it. 'Why, it only needa and then she mends it."

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? By Frank Cufloy. .Many people throughout the world are cherishing the idea that some day; war will become a thing Of the past,' and -universal peace will ibe establish ed. Only a few weeks ago a great palace was opened, and thousands of pounds have 'been given to the cause;! but is the ideal state possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that it ap pears possible to settlo disputes by conference; but it is not appearances which tell, but facts. Does Nature permit universal peace? Darwin, who was perhaps the gratest nature student the world has ever produced, offers his theory of the survival of the fittest. How does this fit in with the ideal? As far back iti the history of the world as time will allow us to see the whole living things have been fighting for the mastery one over another. Not only animal life; it also applies to plant life. The lower animals are in many cases protected from themselves, as la the bovine cl...

WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. Mystery of the Sea. It is a Bingular and somewhat dis turbing faot that there frequently ex ists at sea, in the area covered by a log, what might be described as a zone of silence; that is, a belt of space in which sound cannot be hear, It is the only thing of all others moat dreaded by mariners. Thsre may be danger ahead-say, a deadly rock lying right in the vessels course. The light that marks it, whether from lighthouse or lightship, ia blanketed by the fcg, but the crew at least expect to hear the warning blast of the fog horn. No such blast reaches them. The sound is com pletely lost in the silence zone, and the firBt intimation they have of the danger is when the \tssel crashes on ^To this cause undoubtedly may be attributed some of the great disas ters at sea which have puzzled many shore people. There was trie ease of the Stella, for instance, which ran full tilt on the Casquet Rocks, off Alderney. The Stella was a ra'.lway steamer, i>lylng be...

DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

DAXBYXXO. COWS AND FERTILITY. 1 On all pastures where cows and young stock have been grazed for many years without special means toeing taken to restore the loss of phosphates; on all pastures abound ing in coarse grass and weeds on damp, rushy grounds, and on clay land pastures, an application of 5 cwt. per acra will be found to pro duce satisfactory result during the first and subsequent seasons. The remarkable appearance of clover which follows closely upon such an application is only to be accounted for by the stimulus which phosphntic and calcic manures give to this class of plants, i White clover throws out suckers and is of a creeping nature, from which it derives ita botanical name of repens. That the plant ev isted in a weak and sparse condition previously cannot bo doubted, but a 'dressing of phosphate of lime causes an unwonted development and vigor ous growth of both wh>t9 clover and other leguminous plants.

GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. The dairy cow is one of the beat solutions for the problem of the high cost of living. She not only furnishes cheap, wholesome, and nourishing foods, in the products of the dairy, but the manure, if saved and properly used on the land, will accelerate larger crops and more pro fits per acre. But we must have good herds. Probably in no other industry con nected with the soil is there more ne nessity for a complete reorganisation of the methods of working than in dairying. Although we have an in comparable climate for dairying the business is unsound at its baBo through the use of any kind of ani mal in the shape of a cow. No sane man would think of sowing the same kind of seed for a grain crop year after year when he found by practi seed was less than one-half what it cal test that the yield from that seed was less than one-half what it should be. Yot men will go on milk ing and rearing calves tor future use from cows which do not actually pay for their keep or ...

THE LAUGH CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

THE LAUGH CURE. By Philip Giibba. There have been many notable events recorded in the newspapers during recent weeks-railway disas ters, Btrikes, political sensations-'but there was one incident which attract ed only a brief notice, although it con tained the secret which all the philos ophers of life have been searching for since the beginning of time-the se cret of happiness. It took place in a police court-of all places in the world-and the se cret was revealed by a young coster monger charged with the theft of a wheelbarrow. This young man did not eay a single word in self-defence, but he had a smile which seemed to pierce the gloomy atmosphere of the court like a sudden burst of sun shine. He chucklc-d whimsically when evidence was given against him. He laughed, with a joyous, uuaft'ected laugh, at the very mention of the wheelbarrow. He was enormously amused by the misfortune which had beffllen him, and he was prepared to take any punishment that might be given to him with a c...
