INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 January 1914

INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. In the treatment of weeds, it is em phatically a case of "a stitch in time saves nine." They should toe preven ted from seeding, whenever possible, and when buying seeds for sowing, get chem pure, so els to ibe certain that you are not sowing wild seeds. Weeds often grow more vigorously than useful plants, and, as a conse quence, they shade or crowd, or par tially choke the seedlings of the de sired crop. Weeds, naturally, make use of the | same food as the cultivated plants among which they grow. Consequent ly, they deprive a crop of a large am ount of nourishment; and they rob the I succeeding crop as well. On ara'ble soil, weeds are trespassers that should be prosecuted with the utmost rigor of the law. Weeds having large leaf sur face draw from the soil and give off through the leaves a large amount of water, and thereby rob the surround ing plants. Many botanists consider this waste of moisture the most ser ious injury done by the weeds.

DAIRYING SUGGESTIONS. The iollowiEg suggestions are tJae experience of jii\ Yv. M. Kider, of ttie Winona Agricultural College, U.S.A.: Test your iierd for economic produc tion.

DAIRYING. WHY WASH THE UDDER? [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 January 1914

DAIRYING. WHY WASH THE UDDER? There are many points In clean dairying which, if observed closely, I would obviate milk contamination, and consequent complaints about in ferior cream and butter. Here are some points of advice: j Wasning the cow's udder is fre quently necessary. Should the pad dock in which the cows have been j accustomed to lie down during the night be not clean—very tew. are clean enough—then the udders should be washed before milking. Cows for aging in unclean places, especially during drought, render washing their udders imperative. The cow-yard is usually muddy in some degree during wet weather. As the cow walks to and from the bail sue generally makes a beacen pain, and wh«n wet this track becomes a continuous manure track. The cow kicks up on to the udder pieces of this contaminated soil, and the udder is thus unclean when milking time begins. The milker's hands ure often a fruitful source of milk contamination during the operation of milking. The damp, dirty h...

Gould. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 January 1914

Gould. ♦ (From Our Correspondent). Miss G. Gibbons has been appointed to the teachership of the Gould State School. The building has been erected by the residents, with Government assist ance. and rented by the Department of Public Instruction. The Tyers river is attracting a good number of aDglers every week end. The afternoon train on Saturdays has conveyed sportsmen of Some kind there ever since the beginning of the holiday season, and the practice seems to be increasing. This should be encourag ing to the people of Gould, as it helps to bring the place into notice. Trout fishing is, of course, the main attrac tion. It is believed that the gang of men recently employed at the new railway siding will be sent back here to com plete the work as soon as some neces sary material is available. Some new roads have been surveyed to the new station, in anticipation of the country opening up, and I hear there is every prospect of this taking place.

In addition to this indebted ness, £74 is still due to Mrs McCauley in connection with the recent land pur chase. Mr Bell (president) thought the statement a satisfactory one, and did not think the committee had done so badly during the past year. He could only say that he hoped the position would continue to improve ; he would like to see the debt wiped off, but that would take time. If they could only get a few more sub scribers, things would be better and the prospect more encouraging. The balance-sheet was the...

GRIT A NECESSITY. A lack of this causes a slow supply of eggs, and if fowls' have not the materials for digesting their food, it is impossible for them to get on, for the proper nutriment must be extract ed from the food for the production of eggs. Oyster shell grit for lime, as well as sea shell or pebbly beach grit, is best for the purpose, as it is very hard and sharp, and a small quantity goes a long way. It should be kept in a trough in the run for the fowls to help themselves to.
