MAN'S BEST FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

MAN'S BEST FRIEND. So many peaple tell of the faithful ness shown by the dog and the horse that we have oome to call them man's best friends. The term friendship as we commonly understand it, means all round all the time helpfulness. A friend is one we can not well do without. If you are a successful farmer and keep thoroughbred cows you are proud of them. You sell them for a big price. Did you ever stop to think what the oow is good for besides this? Without her, where would the house wife be? Where would the cook in your home look for a product to take the place of milk? Milk in its vari ous forms is the very foundation of her operations. Milk, cream, butter, cheese, puddings, pies, cake, bread, and so on through the list. Your cow gives the milk to fill the mother's breast to feed the little-.in fant nestling in her arms, that may be come a grat man in the ?world. If, perchance, that mother is taken :from the home, the milk from the cow is depended on to bring up the suckling bsb...

FERTILISER TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

FERTILISER TERMS. 1Jn the minds of farmers who have little time to study the technicalities of nomenclature, confusion may easily arise as to the precise meaning of the different names under which phosphate of lime is offered for agricultural pur poses. There are four forms of phos phate of lime:-1. Soluble in water, as in superphosphate. It is mono-caloic namely, one equivalent of phophoric acid, is combined with one .equivalent of lime, and when phosphate of lime is described" as "soluble," it is understood by long custom and usance in the trade to mean "soluble in water." This is recognised by the Fertilisers and Feed mg. Stuffs Act, because in Section 10, (1), we find the words, "The expres sions 'soluble and insoluble' shall res pectively; mean soluble and insoluble in water," and if the phosphate of lime is not soliuble in water, but in citric acid, it should be so specified. 2. Sol uble in weak acid, as in basic super phosphate, reverted or retrograde phos phate. This form is...

APPLE EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

APPLE EXPORTS.. Fruitgrowers, who export apples to Europe, will be interested in some sta tistics compiled by . Mr Thos. Boss W"alker, regarding the actual results of shipments made last season from Tas mania, under the private marks of individual or~hardijts. The opera tions of 20 small growers, ranging in quantity from 111' to 803 cases, and aggregating 6400 cases for the season, gave a net return on Hobart wharf of 6/10 to 9/9 per case. Sixty seven other growers exported -between them 32,465 and *their individual average net re turn for the season on Hobart wharf ranged from 3/9 to 5/9 per case. It must be remembered that Tasmanian apples as a rule do not sell in Europe at such high prices as those from the main land of Australia. This evidence tends to show that small lines of well selected and oa:efully-packed apples realise more money than the same class of fruit in large quantities. Buyers apparently are prepared to pay, a con siderable premium to secure the whole of any choi...

RAISING CROPS WITH GUNPOWDER. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

RAISING CROPS WITH GUN POWDER.. The old brown gunpowder, formerly standard in the United States navy, but disused since the introduction of smokeless powder, has 'been -found by the Navy Department to possess value a a fertiliser, we are told by the In ventive Age. Says this paper : "Brown powder oontains about 80 per cent. of potassium nitrate, both of which are constituents of fertilisers. The au thorities at Indian Head, the navy proving station, wrote to the Agricul tural Department and asked the ex parts if they did not want to experi ment with the gunpowder as fertiliser. The offer was refused. Then the navy officials determined to use it themselves on the truck patch in connection with the proving ground. The result is re ported -t6 be most ipromising. The garden truck succeeded beyond all pre vious records. The plan is to be tried on a larger scale."

CREAM IN HOT WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

CREAM IN HOT WEATHER. Hoards iD(ldiryman . ays :-In :order to make good butter in the summer it is necessary to take the very best of care of cream while it is being saved for a churning. Neglect to do this is per haps. one of the chief causes of poor butter in the summer. Butter from properly kept and ripened oream will have a more desirable flavor, it will keep sweet longer, and bring "a high er price in any market. Naturally, the first essential is to tatkd proper care of the imilk in tihe stable and separating: room'. It must be kept away from undlesirable odours, if taints ard not wanted ih the but ter. .

BRITISH FOOD IMPORTS. DECLINING SUPPLIES EVER-GROWING MARKETS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

BRITISH FOOD IMPORTS. DECLINING SUPPLIES EVER-GROWING MARKETS The report of the Board of Agricul ture on the farm products imported into Great Britain gives an impressive idea of the value of that country as a market for our suplplies of -meat, but ter, oheese, wool, fruit, grain, or for anything useful which our settlers can raise from the generous soil of this Do minion. The average annual value of agri cultural commodities of all kinds im ported into Great Britain during- the last five years is given' as £268,311,000, and the increase over the same period twenty years ago is no less than £93,351,000. The report dealing with meat shows that Great Britain now imports no less than 21,203,000 cwt. of meat during the year, and consumes 32,052,000 owt. raised byj British farmers, making a total of 53,255,000 cwt. equal to 1311b per head of population.

A DEAL IN DALMATIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

A 'iDAL IN DALMATIANS A : gentlemhen went into a shop in Birmingham and told the proprietor that he wanted to buy a Dalmatian dog to take abroad with him. "Certainly, sir," .said the ;assistant. "I've got the very thing." In a quarter of an hour he brought out the animal.; the customer paid the money and departed. Before his train time, however, a heavy shower fell. The gentlemen returned with the dog in a state of indignation. "Look at himl" he cried. "You told me he was a Dalmatian. Give me my money back.. All his spots are washed off iu-the rain." The proprietor apologised. "It's all that stupid fool's mistake." He called to his assistant. "James, did you sell this dog to this gentleman ?" "Yes, sir." "Well, you ought to be ashamed .o yourself. Don't you know an um brella goes with this dog?"-i

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine.") The skirt is going to hall-mark the dress-is, in fact, doing this now. I can only offer one opinion: that the spring-spread hip is going to be con demned by all except extremists. Hav ing said that I glance at the blouse--I refer to the dominating note. In this department we have everything that is beautiful, and very little that calls for condemnation. The frill has grown like a flower--bud to bloom. Bit by bit the Medici has expanded till we are one remove from an irregularly formed ruff.. The swelled front, which is outlined with a frill is to be exploited, frill to short sleeve in keeping, or to longer in the form of any hour-glass. The designers the other side of the world are nothing if not resourceful to names. The wrist-frill, which is. drawn in at centre with ribbon, is very aptly described. Buttons are an etecetra we shall see in less striking form. While plenty may be used, either f._r use or decoration, they will be of much reduced siz...

Use a bicycle pump to remove dust from tufted furniture. A slight draft on bread that is rising may cause it to come up very slowly and perhaps spoil it altogether. When roasting a turkey, stuff the breast with pared sweet pitoties; they get a fine -flavor from the juice. Try scraping off that burned side of your cake with a very coarse grater. Much superior to the knife. Before frying liver, try dipping the slices in hot water; the flavor is im proved and much more delicate.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER.

The intention behind this new law was to secure the adoption of a modern, scientific, and humane system for the treatmnt of criminals, which would distinguish sharply between incorrigibles, who are it menace to society, and youthful or fenders, who needed only to be set upon the right track, to become use ful and law abiding members of the community. For this purpose, it was proposed that special reformatory pris ons should be established, where of fenders could be detained indefinitely, until it was felt th...

These plates are placed horl zontally, one above the other, about one-eigth of an inch apart, and have their lower suifaceg. highly polished, and the upper surfaces painted a dead blaok.

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

POULTRY NOTES. It is surprising more poultry-keepers do not keep a well-filled dust bath, which is the best of all cures against insect troubles. It is little trouble or expense. Dry earth or road dust, to a depth of 9in. to 12in., in a deep box, kept in a dry, sheltered position, is all that is required. A little pow dered sulphur should be added occas sionally, whilst carbolic powder is very useful in bad cases. Some hens are so infested with insect life., through neglect of, the dusti bath, that it is sometimes necessary to dip them bodily in a bath made of a decootion of quassa chips and tobacco water, afterwards placing in a warm coop to dry. Such insect troubles are generally confined to fowls which cannot have their liberty and are kept in too close quarters, as poultry running on fields will find their dust bath under hedges and other ,places. Prevention is better than cure, and whether young or old, fowls kept in confinement must have a dust bath, or parasites will rapidly ...

ENGLISH FARM PRODUCTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

ENGLISH FARM PRO DUCTS. Part II of the Agr cultural Statitics for 1912, issued by' the British Board of Agriculture, deals with the produce of crops, and brings out the deficient yields of wheat. oats, and potatoes, ow- ing to the wet season. A table is. given, showing the hypothetical valueo of orops. Wheat is put it £10,883.000 as comnpared with £12,210,000 in 1911;: barley, £8,-152,000, gainsL £8.614,0001 oats, £9,100000. against C£9,677,000;; potatoes, £8,908,000, against, £10,11.8,000. On the other hand, clover, etc.., hay is given at £10,257,000, against £9.899.000; and meadow heay, £29,710,000, against £21,173,000. Hops are estimated at £2,259,000, against £3,428,000, the drop in this tase being duo to the de creased price. It is nbted as re markable that the market prices were. so nearly similar, in three instances identical, in the two seasons, and ex cept for wheat, potatoes and hops, the nominal value of the crops of 1912 is. said to compare favorably with that of the cro...

TURNIPS AND NITROGEN. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

TURNIPS AND NITB RGEN. Mr Thomas Jamieson, Director of the Agricultural Research Association of Scotland, has made a careful con sideration of the turnip, twhich ex perience and experiment show: does not require artificial nitrogen, but is spec ialLy supplied with means for, fixing the necessary qualities of this element from the open air. The rape plant has a structure practically ilentifical with the turnip. The special examin ..'?,on of the turnip and rape was brought about from the fact that a better crop of oats was secured after ploughing rape than resulted from oats after clover. In this connection, Mr Jamieson declares, "Not to carry the turnip leaves off the field cannot be too strongly repeated. The benefit to the succeeding crop is well-known, though it was not realised that the absoaption ofl\ nmtrogen was by the leaves, and that provision of this ele ment to the succeeding crop is the ex planation. The turnip shows in a dried plant per 100 parts 2.25 of nitrogen. The ni...

ACTION OF GRASS ON TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

ACTION OF GRASS ON TREES. In the latest number of Science Pro gress is an article by Mr Spencer P i:.. ering, F.R.S.; direcbtor of tbid'W-oitiri', Experimental IFruit Farm,. England. giving the results of a series' of ex haustive experiments to determine tli effects produced by growing grass above the roots of fruit trees. , In; this country, the deleterious effect of grass on trees is generally recognised, and commercial orchards are, as a rule, carefully cultivated, but in England, there is considerable difference of opin ion and practice, grassed orchards be ing not uncommon, although intensive. fruit growing with clean cultivation, the latest phase of the industry. Tihe chief reason for this divergence of opin ion Mr Pickering believes to lie in the fact that effect produced by grass varies greatly according to the nature of the soil, and, in some few cases, may eve;; be negligible; the grassing of the land is also generally carried out gradually which materially reduces the evi...

THE NEW FARMER. SCIENTIFIC ADVANCE [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914

THE NEW FARMER. - SCIENTIFIC ADVANCE :--' If -ti.t {`?yiton of (agriculture' 'which is thought to be in progress is to reach the more intensive state de sired by reformers, it can only be in ' duced by the farmer. Landlords may lead and persuade, but the farmer's .belief in the form of cultivation which 1 pays him best is the deciting factor. We have signs in plenty that the farmer is advancing along the lines of scientific theory: (says a oorrespon dent of the ''"Lonondon.- Times,"). On paper and. in the abstract, the higher the farming the greater the profits for all concerned. The ideal to aim at is that Danish farm, much visited by e English Farmers and landowners, s which yields an average profit of £4 an acre. It is clamied that a net in 0conme of £20,000 a year is made from its 5000 acres. At the other end of the scale we may take a score of pro r perties on English wolds and heavy , lands, as well as on Norfolk sands, which do not yield a profit of 5/ an atre or near. it. In...
