Farm and Station. BARLEY FOR CART HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886
Item mû StpPs BARLEY FOB CARTHORSES. -A A writer in " Agriculture " says-Eaw home-grown barley for horses, 1 may remark is not good for horses, as it contains similar «.end acid to that referred to under question 176S. This may be understood from the strong stench that arises if the water from the cistern in which barley has been steeped, *s the first process of malting, is turned in- to a sluggish ditch. In the village where I was born, there were tb ree large malt-houses .built, when I was a boy, in the place of one «mall one. I think there were three cis- terns equal to a "steep" of 100 quarters «ach. The water from those cisterns was turned into a ditch beside the level road towards my home. This ditch soon became «o offensive and it was said daugerous to health, that it was arched over with bricks. Before this water got to the river, a third -of a.miie away, it was as black as ink, to look at it in the ditch, from the way it had been oxydised on the way. It was acted upon in th...
THE PHYLLOXERA QUESTION IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [FROM SYDNEY MAIL.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886
THE PHYLLOXERA QUESTION m NEW SOOTH WALES. ! [FBOM SÏDNET MAILJ Sir Alexander Stuart's statement that the* experience of Continental vinegrowera went to prove the eradication of the phylloxéra 'was a difficult matter is, in our opinion, the most sensible statement that has been raade_ The boiling water, the coal tar, the sui j phuret of carbon, the inundating of vine I yards, hare to a greater or lesser extent all been found wanting in their effect. The destruction of vineyards and allowing them» to remain disused for a long period has also been well proved a fallacy, as the enemy to- be grappled with belongs to a class that, when once it gets a fair hold cannot pos- sibly be eradicated. Government may spend thousands of pounds and in the encL will be little the better for the' outlay. In our opinion, whatever is done towards the eradication of the evil must be done hy the owners themselves, and to initiate a'preven- tive they must; first find out stocke that the enemy will not atta...
CLEANING DAIRY UTENSILS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886
fCLEANING DAIRY UTENSILS. 7C9e want of thorough cleanliness ia re gard to the utensils in the dairy is the caiise of trouble with tbe milk and butter more frequently than IB supposed. It is abont.the last thing that ie suspected, and yet, perhaps, it should be the first. If we Were consulted in regard to the premature souring of milk, or the failure to ¿et butter ina reasonable time, or foaming of cream in the «hum, the first thought would be Ëthe bucketB, milk dishes, or the churn, not scrupulously and perfectly cleaned. Ic ie a mistake to le J ve these utensils un- washed for several hours after they have been used, and ic is a still greater mistake to use wooden buckets for milking. Tbe glazed, earthen milk dishes for setting th« milk in are preferable even to tin, and the press tin or " block " dishes " are better than the soldered or seamed ones. Tin buckets are the best for milking into, os they do not absorb the milk, and can be washed perfectly clean. To wash any dairy utens...
THE MONEY MAKING PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886
THE MONEY MAKING PIG. None of our farm animate answer more quickly to or yield more profit from good treatment than swine ; anti in many localise* none are neglected thau these useful animals. When pigs run at large, their management after they are weaned is very simple, bat where pigs are kept in yards or pens and are expected to subsist mainly on skimmed milk, or the refuse from the kitchen, more care is necessary, and their wants carefully attend- ed to, or they will not thrive as they ought. The most importent thing is, remember, in feeding pigs is that there is no euch thing aa " Stock order ;" if the pig is not so fed that it gains in weight continually and rapidly it ie cot a profitable animal, and Boon eats more feed thau it is worth. Many farmers keep a pen of store pigs in low condition through the winter, at a dead loss ; the pigs do not grow, and yet eat almost as much as the fattening pigs. Here, again, we come to the " food of support." The larg&r part of thc p...
OUR LONDON LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] LONDON, Jan. 18. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886
OUR, LONDON LETTER. . [From our own (Jorreapondenf] LOSDOX, Jan. 18. Parliament will meet on the 12th inst., and the speech from the throne will be delivered OB the 21st. The leaders of both parties have summoned their hench- men tb be present at the commencement of the fray, and there has been a brisk passage of arms between Mr. Bradlaugh and Sir Michael Hicks Beach, from which it appears that the Conservative Chancel- lor of the Exchequer, who is also leader of the House of Commons, lias been sounding Mr. Peel, the Speaker in futuro, as to what should be done in certain eventualities such as the honorable mem- ber for Nottingham seeking to be sworn in. These are about all the facts that 1 can tell yon. Everything' else is the purest surmise and conjecture. There is no doubt tliat Mr. Gladstone is prepared to make certain concessions in the way of granting some measure of Home Rule in Ireland, «nd there are a few members of his party who would be content to follow their illustrious...

A Bishop's Reason for Abstinence. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886
À Bishop's Eeason for Abstinence. "Ductor," said a lady at a fashionable dinner, a few years ago, to the present Bishop Henry C. Potter, "I observe yon take no wine." " No," said Dr. Potter, " I have not done so for many years-in faot, #or twenty-five years." She expressed sur- prise in the look which met the dootor's ans- wer, " It may interest you to know why I abstain," said Dr. Potter, observing the ex- pression of his companion. " I will tell yon. A man with an unconquerable passion for drink, came constantly to see me, and told mo how this miserable passion was bringing him to utter ruin ; how his employers, every time he obtained a situation, were compelled to dismiss him, beoause of his terrible habit. One day I said to this man, * Why-will you not say here and now-Before God, and in His help, I never will taste liquor agahrf ' The man said, ' Doctor, if yon were in my place you would not say that.' I answered, ' Temperate mau that I am, I will say so at this moment.' And I ...

Companionable. Fogg-" Tes, I like Fendersoa ; he's such ¿ good oompany, you know." Brown-" Good company. Why, whatever , . you say to him in one ear goes out of the other." Fogg-" Ah, that's just it. It is such a .pleasure to talk to a man who doesn't know it ali, and interrupts you before you get half 'through. Why, you can tell the same stories to Fenderson every day for a month, and they are just as fresh to him the last day as the first. I tell you, sir, there's no man I .like better than the man who forgets things . just as fast as you can tell them to him."
Russian Enterprise. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886
Russian Enterprise. Siace the year 1870 Russia lias been en- gaged upon a great engineering under- taking which, when finished, will certainly rank as one of the largest public works camed out by tho Government of any land. Russia, as is well-known, is an eminently agricultural country, but much of the best land is rendered practically useless by the extensive marshes, which ?are barren in themselves, and are further an .obstacle to proper communication. Among the largest of these swamps are those known asthePinsk marshes. These occupy a large area-more extensive than Ireland-and hare remained an irreclaim- able wilderness in the midst of a pros- perous, corn-growing region up to within the past few yeare, but their drainage has ?now been going on since 1870. In that year the Goverment took in hand the abolition of the large forest jungle which prevented all intercourse between the Kussian districts on either side, and hetweeu Russia and Austro-Germany. An immense stan: of engineeri...

A Patent Building Material. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886
A Patent Building Material. ' In these days of brick famines, and of j the-daily increasing dem«nd||for hoiisa j _-T ;" - accommodation, it may interest many to hear of an entirely nen-, and botter stu], a ehenp building material. It, is an Ameri- can novelty, and letters patent have been taken out for it in Victoria as well as in s«>u»ö of the other colonies. If it fulfils all that is promised for it, it may revolu- tionise the building trade. It is known in America as terra-cutta lumber ^the latter term hoing American for timber), and it is churned that it will supplant stone, bricks, and timber in the building of houses. It is made of clay mixed with sawdust, or spent, tau bark, and then burnt in a kiln, like ordinary bricks. 1'he com- bustible portion of "the misture is thus destroyed, and a porous suhstauce re- mains, which, it is said, has all the quali- ties of brieks or stone in the matter of hardness and durability. After being treated as described, thc lumber presents t...
The Fruit Question. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886
The Fruit Question. Mention is made elsewhere, in the ad mirable paper by " Hortus," of the sligh attention paid t*> vegetables and fruit a articles of Unman food. In a climate sue! as oars, summer fruits should form a larg* element in our daily fare. We persist ii overburdening the digestive organs witi dishes suitable enough in winter, bui which require a more vigorous power oi assimilation than eau always be summoned to our aid in the summer. We have nol yet learned to adopt the practice of th« warmer European continental cities, and of many parts of Asia and South America and allow the grape, the peach, the fig the banana, and other fruits to hold, in the summer-time, as important a position ae meat. Mr. H. Stauley, the explorer, in- deed believes that our race will fail if it follows too exactly the dietary of warmer lands. To the want of their former nourishing fare he ascribes many of the .deaths, and the too common debility of Europeans (he means, no doubt, those of the n...
COMMERCIAL. B. S. LLOYD & CO.'S ANNUAL TRADE AND PRODUCE CIRCULAR. 8 George Yard, Lombard Street, London, 31st Dec., 1885. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886
COMMERCIAL. -. B. S. LLOYD & CO.'S ANNUAL TRADE AND PBODÜCE CffiCULAB. 8 George Yard, Lombard Street, London, 31et Dec., 1885. In reviewing pur last annual circular it was remarked by the Australian PreBs that we took a very gloomy view of affairs, bat the «vents of the year hare unfortunately proved even more unfavourable to Australian in- terests than we anticipated. The produce market has shewn a steady and continuous decline unprecedented in its duration; the bottom that was so often talked about as having been reached proved only the prelude to further deoline in values, until merchants sold in sheer despair under heavy losses£The most serious decline has taken place in wool, tallow, rabbit skins, and opossums, to which we refer in detail later on. The long-looked for improvement appears at last to have set is, although, at present, only of au infinite- simal character ; still it is encouraging to find the downward tendency abated, and the fact of the improvement being ...

BEHN METES & CO'S REPORT FOB I WESTERN AUSTRALIA. ¡ Singapore, 19th January, 1886. Our last report vras dated th&lt;i 7th ultimo, silica when, to our regret, our market for SANDALWOOD has not shown any material change. The large direct arrivals in Shanghai hare caused to increase stocks considerably there, in eonsequonce of which dealers here do now no longer believe that the expected improvement will set in towards the Chinese new year. They say, however, that if ship- ments from your side will cease for a short time, say about two months, pricss would rise considerably, as stocks, both in Hong Song' and Shanghai, would then have been greatly . reduced till the arrival of new shipments The s.s. Natal brought a'jout ll tons wood, whick was soldat 3 doisppl of 10 logs. We .xpect, however, we could get for a shipment of really good old wood a little mere than said figura, say 3 dois 5 cents, or even 3 dois 10 cents, tnough our cloning quotation is nominally 3 dois ppl ...
