MAINTAINING SOIL FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 13 June 1913

MAINTAINING SOIL FERTILITY. "We fear that some of our farmers have been placing a little too much emphasis upon the valuable effects of clover, lucerne, cowpeas, etc. We wish them to understand very plainly that if a soil is lacking in nitrogen and humus, and any of these crops is turned under whole, it will increase succeeding crop yields wonderfully. If .however, the hay is sold off the farm, there will be a loss in phosphor us, potassium and nitrogen, which will not be entirely balanced by the nitrogen and humus added by the stubble and roots. But if the hay is fed to live-stock and the resulting manure is returned to the soil, the gain'in nitrogen and humus will be almost as much as if the crop had been ploughed under whole, and the clTcct on crop yields should be just as beneficial. In the long run, we must either plough under the clover, cowpear, or lucerne crops whole or else feed them to live-stock and return the manure, it' we are to maintain fertility. The purpose of man's...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 13 June 1913

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. A teaspoonful of ammonia to a cup ful of water will clean gold or silver jewellery. A few drop's on the under side of a diamond will clean it im mediately, making it very brilliant. When the frying-pan is the cause of a greasy range, rub the marks with a pad of newspaper dipped in soot be fore applying the blacklead; This greatly facilitates the shining pro cess. A very good way to make your stair carpet last longer, before laying the carpets (providing you do not possess proper pads), is to fold up some brown paper, or newspaper would do, five or six thicknesses, not as wide as the carpet, and just lay it about six inches from the edge and a little over the edge, and secure it at each end with a tin tack. By doing this you will find your stair-carpet last a great deal longer. Boots and shoes are apt to get hard ened when not in use. To make them recover their original softness wash them over in warm water and then rub castor-oil well into them. After a little while...

CONCERNING ELECTIONS. "Now the voting's oyer. - Now the fight is through, Gather up the Wounded, Heal the black and blue; ''.-''Bandage up the adverbs, And the'pronouns quaint; Hub' the wounds with liniment, As they limp and faint.

PRO! VARIOUS SOURCES It is recorded in the press and will stand in the annals of the Amateur Fishermen's Association, that at the association dinner, held on Tuesday, May 27, 1913, the toast of "Kindred Societies" was proposed and was re sponded to. But neither has the press given nor will the annals of the association give sufficient indication of what these Kindred Societies are. Or ganisations which the toast honored, yet whose representatives failed to respond, may be named in the follow ing order:— 1. The Ananias Club, founded to the glorious and immortal memory o£ Ananias and his wife Sapphira, who were cruelly misunderstood iby a bar barous generation in the first cen tury of the Christian era. 2. The Associated Historians, of whom Herodotus, known as the Father of Lies, is Perpetual President; and who have consistently, ever since the art of writing on bricks was invented, deluded the world with yarns as mar vellous as any fish story, 3.

Urana Golf Club. SECOND ANNUAL TOURNAMENT. Judging by the success of the second Golf Tournament on Fri day and Saturday last, this annual function promises^to be a popular social gathering, as is Urana's annual tennis season.

Hobbs enthuias" (tic members, have been working j steadily with the idea of popularis- < j ing this sport and bringing Urana | into prominence in this respect.

At this time the Tennis Tourna ment was such a success that the idea of a Golf Tournament sug gested itself and it was taken up., enthusiast...
