THE OUTBACK WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 18 April 1914

THE OUTBACK -WOMAN. (By Parafli( in Auckland "Newa.") life spare heed is paid to those now numerous settlers located in what for lack of a better term is called the outbacks. In well-populated countiri-s wherein com paratively docent, metalled roads are formed, and by means of which the ordinary travellor derives his views of agricultural and pastoral life, there is little to arrest attention beyond the passing recognition of a somewhat soli. tary existence which is to a greoat ex tent compensated by a freedom fromn town conventionalities and by pictur esque rural surroundings that appeal to the majority of mankind. In such locations the settlers are often to be envied, for they oenjoy a life healthful in the extreme, are fiirly well catered for by oountry storekeepers, receive their mails at stated periods, and ex cept during the most part of the winter solstico are enab:ed to comfortably tra vel and congregate at the customary district gatherings which form features of the farmer'...

PIG-RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 18 April 1914

PIG-RAISING, If you intend to raise pigs the first thing to oonsider is a good run. If you have not got this, do not think of raining pigs in a sty. You can uti liso your surplus feed to better advan tago by buying up such suckers or slips as are gonoerally for sale, and fattening them for liarket. Any farmer who keeps a cow or two with the necessary paddook can easily and cheaply arrange it run, by fixing wire netting, say two fooet high, round his paddock. Notting of .1-inch nieash and of thicl '"gaugo is best, and pig-raising will soon recoup the outlay, and show a substantial pro fit, lHaving provided the run, the next work is to select the sow, or sows, and above all things be careful not to over do it. Many farmers can run one sow on their surplus feed who cannot pro fitably keep two. It is not so much the keeping of the two sows, but the rearing of their progeny to the best advantage, I do not like the larger breeds. I would select a sow frotm it good litter, sheor g,, thick ...

In November, 1910, Mr. Burke obtained sufficient cuttings for a plot 60 x 30 feet, and planted in drills 6 inches deep, 4 feet apart, The out tings were planted in pairs 3 feet apart on the drills.,, Since planting two out tings have been taken, and another is nov ready. 1ie found the cane best where growth was concerned eight months after planting, and equally good after each successive cutting, The one planting is supposed to give good results for five years.

WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP? [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 18 April 1914

WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP? It: Is a very common belief among farnmrs, remarks the "Scientiflo Am erioan," that a post will last longer if sot in the ground the reverse of the way ,it grow in the tree; in other words, with the butt ond up. Accordingly one sees many posts, capcoially end ahd gate.posts, with the small end down. PI1o supposition is, that sap in a tree i~ always ascending; or, at least, that it is oasier for tho sap to go up than down, Consequently, it is argued, turning a post upside down tends to prevent the rise of water, helps to hoop tlhe wood dry, and therefore ronders it less liablo to decay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow in either direction with equal facility, and the popular notion to the contrary is ill corrlect Careful eoxperimeuts on the relative urabhility of post tinmbers havo been nado by the Ohio AgrIlnltural Experi mont Station, and the above question was considered. Ono feneo in particu lar contained 156 black locust posts, of whli...
