POTASH AND CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914
POTASH AND CROPS. One of the most: striking effects of potash manures is the. remarkable way in which they promote the growth of clovers and other leguminous plants. Thus when potash is applied to a field of., mixed. herbage, it encourages the growth of the clovers to such an ex tent that the general. aspoot of the vegetation is entirely changed. It also encourages the growth of the finer and more nutritious grasses, A fur ther effect of. potash is that it renders the .plant more resistant to the attacks of fungoid parasites, well seen in. the case of rust on wheat, leaf-spot fun Igus on. mangolds, and even- in some cases '"inger and. toe" in tuirnips. Potash is the dominant manurial in gredient for potatoes, where it not only improves the quality, but giv.s a high .er: yield)- which. contains a larget pro portio of.. m rketable size .potates.:.
A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914
A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION. "What is the highest record we can = expect a dairy cow. to make?" is a. query that has often been made. As it was with the trotting horse, 20 or 30. years ago, when animals began to ap pear that could trot a mile in less than three minutes, for instance, Maude S., makilg a record of 2.10, many thought. that the speed limit of the horse had been reached, and so it was with the dairy cow. 'When Yeksa Sunbeam, a Guernsey, made her phenomenal re cord of 857 pounds of fat in one year, it was doubted by many who had not studied thd breeding of dairy cows closely that her record would soarcely be equalled, if ever excelled. Not long after this. Colantha 4th's Johanna, a Holstein, made 998 pounds of fat, excel ling Yeksa Sunbeam's record by 141 pounds of fat. Here the world's re cord remained for several years, but it was finally displaced by Banostine Belle De Kol, who made in one year 1058.34 pounds of fat. SJacobba Irene, with a yearly record of 954 lbs of fat hel...

FOR THE FARMER'S WIFE. Folding -Skirts for Travelling.-Fas ten the waistband and pin the middle of the back to the centre of the front. `Then lay the skirt' out flat on the table, and, owith two pieces of tissue paper as foundations, roll the skirt. over and over towards the oentre, first from the right side of the skirt, then from the left, so forming two rolls that lie parallel to each other. If the garment has to be folded crosswise to admit of its being packed in suit-case or trunk, place a wad of tissue paper or newspaper underneath the creases.

MARRIED IN HER SHROUD. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914
MARRIED IN HER SHROUD. After being pronounced incurable by a score or more of physicians of the first rank and operated on nine times, each time with supposedly fewer chan ces of recovery, Miss Sophie M. Koerth of Baltimore, U.S.A., was married on September 29, to Jeremiah J. Rails bach in the dress which, four years ago, she made with her own hands for her shroud. Four months ago, after the last and most daring opera tion, Miss Koerth felt for the first time that a cure had been 'effected. Miss Koerth's ease is well-known among surgeons. At one hospital she beg ged to be operated upon, but the sur, geons refused, declaring it would mean nothing but death. Adorer: "Won't you try and' love me?" Boston Girl: "I fear that I codild never love .a man .who says 'try and instead of 'try to.'
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914
OF: RURAL INTERES 3 - '(Bye"Riusticus."- ) "This is a great, oountry, but it is not used," said an American. the other day. He said it with an air of un covering a :fact of which Australians are not aware, and which it would be well for them. to know and to anot ac cordingly. There is no gainsaying the accuracy of his observation, and it is probable that there are few Australians' who think a.t all, who ,do not ack nowledge its truth. But to aot upon the knowledge is altogether a different matter. There is some progress to wards exhibiting more fully the- im mense resources of the country, but it is a painfully slow process. For the most part, we are not far in advance of the lotos eating natives of the tro picas who are content to take the goods the gods provide in the shape of the fruit, fiish and flesh. Nature, with prodigal bounty furnishes, and let it go at that. True, we make some effort, but to a very. great ex tent, this country of unbounded pos-' sibility *in the way of pro...

MEAT PROBLEM IN ARGENTINA. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914
MEAT PROBLEM INARGENTINA. The s·hortsighted policy of indisciim inate slaughter of likely bulls and cows in Argentina, says a South Ameripan authority. Jhas resulted in a stats of affairs that Will be nothing short of a national disaster unless .legislation is brought into force to preserve some remnant of the once extensive herds. In the month of February last, 32,993 head of cattle. were slaughtered. ' Of these, 15,406 were cows. It is now necessary for Argentina. cattle breeders to replenish their diminished stook. Very recently 20,000 head of cattle'were driven on to Argentina soil from Pra guay. The price of meat is steadily risisng day by day, and soine of. the r1uiral markets of the province of Buenos Ayies are actually displaying horse flesh for sale. 'The shortage of meat whlich is being felt in Argentina is sti mulating enterprise in other districts and nations,, and soon Argentina may find her unknhown competitors her suc cessful rivals..

THE LARGEST ICE CAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914
THE LARGEST ICE CAVE. A few years ago some members of the Austrian Speleological Society dis- covered in the Dachstein mouhtains some caverns which are amongst the largest in Europe. One of these grot- toes, the longitudinal axis of which is fully 6500ft. long, moreover, turned out to offer additional interest by its truly enormous ice masses, and was found to be the largest known ice cave in the world. Though a scorching sun may be burning outside on the bare mountain rock, there is always an icy wind blowing through this underworld, freezing everything within its reach. Only sometimes, when the outside tem- perature ranges between 32 and 41 deg. Cut., and a comparatively warm rain penetrates through the fissures of the rook, enfering right into the cavern, will there be a. temporary calm and dis tinct melting of the ice. The Dach- stein ice cave comprises several domes filled with ice, which communicate with one another through a number of fro- zen galleries. An ice crevice 89 ft....

Rear Lights on Motor Cycles. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914
Rear? Lights on ;iotor vycves' Two diametrically opposed de cisions have recently been given on I the qcuestion as to whether motor cyclists should carry rear lights. InEngla.nd, the local government board, the body responsible for the ~English Motor Car Act and its working, has decreed that .it is unnecessary for motor cyclists to carry rear lights on solo machines, but they must show a rear light on side car combinations. In Mel bourne, the Chief Justice (Sir John Madden) last week decided that, according to the by-laws of the City of Melbourne, motor cyclists must carry rear lights. This creates a neculiar state of affairs, for with in the jurisdiction of the City council a rear light will have to be carried, whilst, a few miles out of Melbourne, no light will be neces sary. Such a state of affairs is ceytainlv going to lead to a deal of trouble aud confusion. The same ruling should apply to the whole of Victoria. It would probably mean the amending of the Motor Act in Victoria, ...

Dainty Lingerie for the Summer [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914
Dainty Lingerie for the Summer During the holidays one's thoughts naturally fly to the ques tion of suitable gifts for one's friends, and where a woman or girl is concerned there could be nothing nicer than a hand-worked camisole, such as is shown in the above illustration. If made in fine handkerchief linen, nainsook, lawn, or Japanese silk, such a gift would be valued by the recipient both for its beauty and utility, be sides which it would form a con stant reminder of the giver's kind ness. If not wanted as a gift, however, it would be a handy piece 6f work to have on hand at any time, especially during the holidays, when one often wants some trifling occupation to fill in an otherwise lengthy day. Of course, before putting the amount of work necessary into a garment of this kind, it is essential to have a reliable pattern, . arid our readers will, we feel sure, be glad to know that such a one is now obtainable. The pattern from the American Pants is also to be had from the same ...
