MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 22 April 1914
MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. The experience already gained in places where associations have been organised shows that with the weed ing out of the unprofitable cows comes an interest in better cows and in the greater care of the cows. There is a tendency to mate greater discrimination in price between good and poor animals. The introduction of better cows per medium of the testing procen. creates a desire for more of them. Thus a larger number of cows with high yielding capacity reduces the cost of collecting milk and creum in a given territory. The increased interest, in lairying .stimulates an interest in pure-bred stock. Instances are given where dur ing the first year's existenca of a dairy-testing association only one rcan owned a pure-bred dairy bull; twenty two such bulls were found anion?: the herds the following year. While no pure-bred cows at all w»"e owned the first year, twenty-one were bought during the second year. This interest steadily increased, and during the thir...
DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 22 April 1914
DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. On all pastures where cows and ;>oung stock have been grazed for many years without special means being taken to restore the losrt of phosphates; on all pastures abound ing in coarse grass and weeds on dump, rushy ptouihI:-:. and on clay land pastures, an application of a cwt. per aei-3 will lv: found to in duce satisfactory result during the first and subsequent seasons. TU'J remarkable appearance of clover which follows closely upon such an application is only to be accountPil for by the stimulus which phospiiatic and calcic manures (;!ve to this class of plants. White clover throws out suckers and is of a creeping .nature, from which it derives Jt» botanies'l name of repens. That the plant ex isted in a weak and .iparoe condition previously cannot bo ,iaui)to3, but a tli es".inj-' ol phosphate of lime causes an unwonted development and vigor ous growth of both uinta r-Iovfr ond other leguminous plants.

The win dows were curtained, and Dut faint rays of the undimmed sunshine fell upon the gloomy tapestries of the high walls or the ancient gloomy tap estries of the high walls or the an cient hangings of the four-poster bed in. which they had slept. Desdy was quite wide-awake and impatient of the night. She listened, and heard no other sound but that of the waves beating upon the distant shore. "Oh, Desdy," she exclaimed, "how you frightened me!" And then, "Have you 'been awake long? Did any one call us?" He said that he had only jus...

CHAPTER VIII. Discovery. I. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 22 April 1914
CHAPTER VIII. Discovery. I. There was a closebond (between the lovers now, and its golden shackles were the music of their day. Hugh knew that she would speak presently, and tell him the whole truth of the tragic circumstance which had made of her an outcast. He waited confi dently for her to speak, prouff that she should he his guest, grateful for every glance which fell from lier eloquent eyes. To be sure, there were difficulties for them both—and not the least for midable "was Geraldine. This shrewd Scotchwoman could anake little of the simple Irish girl "who gave so poor a clue to her trouble. Leila had made up her mind from the first to tell Geraldine nothing, and she did not tell her less. Her ingenuity took re fuge in vague hints and odd phrases which foiled her antagonist and left her powerless. Geraldine turned to the Archdeacon and found in him a wor thy ark. "Something must be done at ance," she said. The- man agreed— though what the nature* of that some thing "should 'be...

HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 29 April 1914
HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. The guiding principle in the appli cation of manures is to use them as supplementary to the natural soil re sources, and not as a main source of fertility. Most good agricultural soils contain vast stores of dormant plant food, and the aim should be to develop as much as possible of this plant food latent in the soil by thorough cultiva tion, supplementing any deficiencies with fertilisers. What those deficien cies are can best be found o"t by ac tual experiment, and, having deter mined them, the problem for eicli farmer and orchardist is to ascertain the most profitable and economic way of supplying the soil's needs. In all districts, with a light rainfall, super phosphate is likely to continue the most profitable of all phospb.itic man ures. In the wetter areas, however, especially on soils deficient in lime, basic slag, or Thomas' phospliate is a valuable adjunct to the production of good crops. When a man and a girl whisper to gether they arc almost certa...
PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 29 April 1914
PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. Many devices have come under no tice from time to time to cope with the mice pest in the wheat or hay ! field. Building the stack upon a raised : platform does not answer the purpose; j the mice will climb up the blocks up j on which the platform Is built, run I along underneath the platform boards, ' and so enter the stack. Enclosing the stack, as some farmers do, with line wire netting, will also 'be found un suitable, as the mice will climb up the wire netting. The only successful method to keep them out is to enclose the stack with a fence of galvanised iron, either plain or corrugated, about two feet high. Let the iron into the ground to a depth of ofur inches, and place it in a slant ing position, pointing outwards from the stack, all around it; taking care to leave no open space at the cor ners; it will be found impossible for mice to enter a stack thus protected.
FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 29 April 1914
FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. A matter which is very often ne ments. They are so often allowed to glected on farms is the care of imple lie ■ afbout the place in all weathers that their periods of usefulness are seriously curtailed. After an imple ment has done its first season's worK 1 the owner should, when stowing ;t in its proper place, see that it is in or der, and if there are any defects he should make a note of them, or, if convenient, It is better to have such defects repaired at once. Then he knows that his machine is ready for the next season's work. With such implements us the stripper or har vester, where belts are used, the bsits should be removed and have a little oil rubbed on them, and be put away in a cool place. The seed drill is an implement that requires a lot of care. A little extra attention will often save two or three days' delay. Succ im plements as ploughs, harrows, culti vators, etc., which are of iron, do not require a shed so much, but a...
THE PRODUCER'S POINT OF VIEW. What Is Farm Management? [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 29 April 1914
THE PRODUCER'S POINT OF* VIEW. What Is Farm Management? What is farm management'! How is it to be applied to farm problems as a method of work hi their solution? If it is not a definite method of solving farm problems,' it is not worth while to pursue its study. The term has a definite significance; it is a distinct method of attacking individual farm problems. It signifies a well-ordered business; a clearly-defined system of conducting rarm operations under a particular set of conditions. There is no more important problem before the fanners in this State than 0f mak ing his farming more pro:i.;:ble. This cannot be done without a more com plete and detailed knowledge of the business 011 individual farms. How does farm management help us to this knowledge? Farm manage ment. in a word is tile application of sound principles, good judgment and economic rules to the. business of farming. In order to emphasize the importance of profit and to ensure the securing of a reasonable anioust o...
