THE FARM. LUCERNE THE WONDERFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 22 May 1914
THE FARM. 4 IJUCKRNE THE WONDERFUL. F. D. Coburn writes, In tho course of an articlc in the "Aationnl Land and Irrigation Journal," (U.S.A.) : -The man who, in these dnys Bays his land will not produce lucerne, a plant that will grow pretty much everywhere else, casts a severe re flection, not only on himself, Hit on his land, his locality, and his State. To say that "any fool can grow lucerne" is misleading, hut with fair treatment, under fairly favourable conditions, it in bringing pood for tune to thousands of th^se wh > know it best and use n fn*r intelli-v pence iti their dealings with it. Among its fundamental requirements is a fairly fertile soil, free from weed needs, in good tilth, with a surface painstakingly fined, levelled, and smoothed. There is little difference between, successful lucerne growing and the successful growing of other crops. Toor farming never brines big cron^, nor will poor land produce as large yields as the more fertile. Failure to leave in the soi...
FOR KEEPING BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 22 May 1914
FOR KEEPING BUTTER. I A "Reader" tells us to "Pack but ter tightly in eartbern jnrs to with in two or threo inchcs of the top ; pack the butter, tightly and closely. Cover with a layer of cheese cloth, then pack salt over the top an inch or two thick, and keep a little water on top of the salt." Makiug the farm yield more with out increase in acreage can he done by using lucerne and silage. These two agencies will do more to increase the capacity of the land than any thing else. Of course, it is under stood that the dairy cow must he .kept in order to get the best returns ? from the lucerne and silage.

CHAPTER XXXIV. IN STRANGE COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 22 May 1914
CHAPTER XXXIV. IN BTRANGE COMPANY. At that terrible moment, when it seemed that tho slightest delay mUBt mean capturo and death, Dick's cour ago and nervo did not fail him. By a quick dash into tho shrub he might escape, but ho spurned the chance while his task, was 3et unaccomplish ed. With splondid heroism, and with out pausing: to look over liin shoul der, ho thrust the blazing match into tho oil-soaked heap of wood. Only a touch was needed. A great flame roared and hissed in his lice as he sprang backwards from under the tower. He had triumphed, and in his elation he felt no fear ; he was reckless of consequences now. Me wheeled round to see the three men from the hut led by Montejo, bear ing down upon him with savage cries. It was too late to run, and Dick determined to mnkc as good a fight for his life as possible. At his feet lay one of the faggots--a thick and heavy one-and he stooped quickly nnd grasped it. His hat was pulled well down in front, and his back was to the fire...

On somo hooks behind a cur tain hung various garments belong ing to tho doctor, and from theso ho selected a linen jacket of tho kind worn on tho island, and a soft hat that concoaled hiB features.

Then ho blew out tho candles, and in*tho semi-darkness of tho room ho put on tho Jacket and hat, removed Ilia shoes, and thrust them, into his sldo pockets. Next ho reconnoitered from tho two windows, watching and listening for a ttmo at each. Tho street that led towards Government House seemed empty, though here nnd there a light (lashed across it.

THE COW'S DAILY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 22 May 1914
THE COW'S DAILY WORK. The wise dairyman hold in mind that a good dairy cow in full milk is expending as much energy as a horse at lmrd labour, and this without ces sation for many months. We have learned that the harder the horse works the more grain and the less roughage he must have, and the same is true for the cow. Except when pasture is good, a portion of the cow's provender should consist of grain or rich concentrates, and if she is yielding a large amount of milk, i.e., worW.ng extra hard, all grain should he ground or crushed. The dry. cow doing little, work can subsist on. less-carefully prepared food, and all or most may be in "the form of roughage. In feerting, the aim should be to supply as ranch rough age as the cow will readily, consume, and to this add sufficient grain or concentrates to keep the digestible matter up to the* standard set by the scientists. -Henry.

THE DAIRY THE POT-BELLIED CALF. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 22 May 1914
THE DAIRY THE POT-BELLIED CAI,F. A plea in favour of the pitiful, suf- I fering, pot-bellied calf appears in one of our exchanges by Mr. T. S. Coo per, the noted Jersey importer and breeder. Coming from a man who is an accepted authority on cattle and who has sold more animals at prices j ranging from £200 to £300 a head | than any other person, what he says and thinks are worthy of attention. | Mr. Cooper says that the calf that j is fed lots of whole milk and rich grains, while it looks good and is making the growth so much desired by the progressive owner, will in variably lay on excessive flesh, de velop a thick neck, heavy dewlap, j coarse bones, and a bsavj hide. On the other hand, the scrawny calf with | a pot-belly, while it docs not show j up well in the showing, is the. one J that gets admiration when it comes i into milk. | It has been his observation that , calves that suffered from scours are j invariably the ones that give a good ; account of themselves when matured, I...

NATURE'S MONUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 29 May 1914
NATURE'S MONUMENT. It, l'jTseldom, perhaps, that Nature erects a monument to. a person's memory ; yet in a small cemctery u few* miles east of Nashville, in Brown County, may bo found an object hearing that, distinction. More than sovonty-fivo years ago a man named AlJcorn met vjth an aeddent which resuiled in his death,, nnd ho wns . buried in the cemetery near his homo. The coflin was hewed out of a part of a poplar tree and made in to two sections. A. few years Inter a small sprout .begun to shoot from the crude coflin, nnd not long after wards a small poplar tree began to spread -its branches over tho grave. Within a few years It had grown to largo proportions, and during tho long period since it first appeared above tho ground tho tiny poplar sprout has gvowu into a tree that measures several feet in circumfer ence and towers above all others in the vicinity. Its branches spread, fur out in all directions, and many perhaps who pass near by arc attracted by tho towering poplar, ...
