THE ORCHARD. 1 NOMENCLATURE OP FRUIT. PARTICULARLY THE APPLE. "What's in a name ? ' To the or dinary individual it may he a matter 0f ver" lit.tic consequence wliat an -mple is called by, and provided it is Boun-1 and fit to cat, one name'may be as good as another ; but to the nurseryman, grower and dealer it often becomes a matter of great im portance. At present wc find that many of what we may term the standard va rieties of apples are known un-ier different names in the various States .ind even in different districts often . have local names. This leads to con fusion, and often to serious misun derstanding. For instance, the Scarlet Nonpanel \ is vnoven as the Winter Pearmsin. Scarlet Pearmain, and sometimes as Cqx's Orange Pippin; also the Gol den Reiriette is called Adam's Peyr main, Summer Pearmain, King Pip pin, etc, and many other varieties are' known byr various names. fpjjjg jg very unsatisfactory, and in the case of ordering nursery, stock 0r makins contracts for certain...

Farmers' Corner SHEEP AND PASTURE [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 8 May 1914
Farmers' Corner SHEEP AND PASTURE Every pheep man kno.vs that the nature of the pasture has a great deal to do with the nature of the wool produced, The natural pastures of Australia have had everything to do with the fame that our wool lias attained. As an auciual illustration of the effect upon qnali'.y of the wool (writes the Sydney " Daily Telegraph ") the sheep and wool ex pert had a very interesting exhibit in the Department of Agriculture exhibits at the Sydney Royal Show. In one of the cased a sample of wool was divided into three sections, and a distinct difference could be noted as the sheep's pasture was changed. The first section represented the growth of the wool while the sheep was fed 0.1 lucerne direcily after shearing. The next growth showed a staple much finer in quality, and with a close crimp, due to the fact that the ewe was rearing a lamb. After weaning the ewe was placed on spring grass, and the sample of wool showed a return to the robust, strong growth. The ...

Beginning of Golf. AUSPICIOUS OPENING The Golf season was opened at Na* timuk on Wednesday afternoon aus* piciDUsly with a mixed foursome. More suitable weather could not pos* sibly have obtained, and a large number of players of both soxes turned up to take part.

INFLUENCE OK FATNESS OF COW AT CALVING. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 8 May 1914
INFLUENCE OK FATNESS UFCOW AT CALVING. An examination of the records of official tests with Holstein Friesian cows by one of the American experi mental stations showed that the (at content of the milk for a short time at the becinnim: of a lactation pe riod may have little relation to the real average fat content of the milk prolueed by any particular animal. Investigations with cows of various breeds and in different conditions were carried out. ami it is concluded that. providing the cow is underfed after calving, the percental of fat in the milk for the tirst 2*1 or 30 days of the lactation period is in fluenced to a considerable extent bv the fatness of the cow at calving. In some eases this inflnene^ appeared to extend to a certain decree for at least three months. The tiller of the soil is the most necessary man in the world. He fe-eds and clothes the world, and with out him* the world would go naked and starve. Apparently he ia the only person in the worM th-*t does not know ...
HORNLESS CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 8 May 1914
HORNLESS CATTLE. Significant progress has been made during the past ten years in estab lishing polled types, of horned breeds of cattle. Polled Durhams, Polled Herefords, and Polled Jerseys repre sents the most notable achievements in this line of breeding. Beginning with "sports" or naturally bsorhless animals, the polled character- has been fixed in these7 three types to an extent which ensures its reproduction in an overwhelming majority: of ma tings. Polled blood has become so potent that, although obrtained through "sports" from breeds with horns, its -polling^.efficiency is thor oxighlj dependable, even' Uj . eases where the elimination of horns is met with stubborn inherent oaposi tion.. A strong and growing demand for polled types of horned breeds is ex pressing itself in the operations of farmers, feeders, and breeders. Those who take, .the purely practical view of horns, considering them useless and expensive physically to remove, wel come the hornless types as satisfac to...
THE FARM. VALUE OF SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 8 May 1914
THE FARM. 4 VALUE OF SILAGE. The advantages of silage feeding (writes an oversea- paper) might be isummed up as follows : .Silage , keeps young stock thrifty and growing all winter. It enables the cow to pro duce milk and butter-fat more econo mically. It increases" the proportion of milk and butter-fat. Silage is more easily handled than dry-fodder. The' silo makes' use of the cornstalks which would otherwise not . he eaten and preserves them in a palatable form. More stock can be kept on a given number of acres. It is the most economical method of supplying feed for the stock during the hot, dry periods of summer when the pastures are short. The field is in good con dition for autumn cultivation after the corn has been removed. - ;Silage does not deteriorate in palatability as does corn stored later in the spring. Less loss results in unfavour able seasons where the crop docs not mature completely, as the corn may, be used for silage to good advantage even if it is not thoroughly ...
