RANDOM READINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 12 November 1914

RANDOM READINGS. (By Silae Snell.) It is a jolly funny thing that tlin first two lines of my weekly contribu tion give me more trouble than all the veBt put together. (This sentence has taken just 13 minutes to work out). The main thing is to get me sta-ted, but when once started I sail along with the constantly accelerating speed of a passionate Australian riding to the devil. There is a moral bore. A start is half the battle, for human nature has as great a repugnance to beginning as to leaving off before a thing is finished. What a multitude of things people could do that they never think they could accomplish if they only made a start J Writing for a newspaper is one of the thing* that one should naturally hesitate in before starting. It is one of the professions in .which no allow ance is made and no mercy shown. The individual is allowed to hide his failure of conversational gifts uuder a cloak of silence or a refuge of small talk-but the writer muBt never be monotonous or uno...

A SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 12 November 1914

A S HC l'i ET. The world is doing better than it did some time ago. We've learned some useful things our gramisires didn't know. And by the information which exper ience has gained, A number of mysterious things are readily explained. Why did the flow'ret blush unseen amid the desert air 1 Why have some sages lived unknown in tit tics chill and bare? Why is reward withheld from men both talented and wise t The answer is as plain as day-they didn't advertise. To mprely take the light from 'neath the bushel wj.l not do. You've got to keep it blitzing where the passing throng may view, No matter what your trade may be, this fact you can't disguise : You'll drop out of the running if you do not advertise.

LUCERNE AND MAIZE IN PORK PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 12 November 1914

LUCERNE AND MAIZE IN PORK PRODUCTION. Lucerne and maize are a splendid ! combination for. cheapening the produc tion of pork. At Orbost,'"in Eastern | Gippsland, Victoria, large numbers of: pigs are fattened in this manner. They are run out on^the lucerne stands and ? topped oil' on maize and pumpkins^ They are seldom if ever shut up to fatten. The usual method is to throw ' the maize cobs out to them, and they will do- the threshing. Pumpkins, su gar beet, or mangels' make an excel lent addition to the grain. When they are used its consumption is'lessened. Snowy Biver farmers estimate that the equivalent, of two bags of shelled maize will, together with the lucerne, suffice to fatten a pig. When fed conjointly with one or more of the other fodders slightly less will be required. In the United States of America the value of lucerne for fattening pigs is becoming generally recognised. There the ani mals are ringed to prevent rooting the ground up. They harvest their own feed, and fro...

TURF TOPICS. (Written for Heyfield "Herald") [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 12 November 1914

TURF TOPICS. (Written for " - Heyfield "Herald") .By his running in the Linlithgow Stakes on Thursday of last week, it was made plainly evident that we did not see the best of Woorak at the just concluded campaign. The Traquair colt ran so badly in the Linlithgow as to suggest the probability that ic had started to go off even before the Derby in which he made such a disappoint ing showing. W.oorak is no . stayer. Pace is undoubtedly his strong point. But he should not be judged by his recent Memington performances, since it is clear that he was so mueh below himself. Jt is quite likely that we will have Woorak over here again in the autumn. A race like the Newmarket Handicap should be more to his liking than dis tance events, especially on his recent form should lead to his declining a little in the estimation of the handicap pel^ With a nice galloping weight on him, Woorak will dash down the New market straight at a great pa?c. When Bed Signal and Lesbos meet in the chief juvenile...

ENGINEER'S REPORT. lne new bridge at Manly h, Tinamba, will be at a somewhat higher level than the old structure, and will be several feet shorter. 0 wing to the aV>8ence of current, wing sheeting has been replaced by rock facing. The need of a roller easy of transport and sufficiently heavy to consolidate the roads is a real one. Roads should be made for ^he traffic not by it. I have obtained certain particulars of a very suitable roller, and beg to submit them for your consideration. The roller is made in Australia, and has the recommendation of the Country Roads Board, The cost is about £140. I have received complaints of the in convenience to traffic and the damage .to the side cuttings caused by large numbers of sheep being allowed to roam over the roads from Blanket Hill towards Glenfalloch.

HOME CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 19 November 1914

HOME CHEESE-MAKING. A lady writing in an Australian paper gives her experiences in the old-fash ioned art of home cheese making. She says: Many a fanner's wife would like to occasionally make a small cheese for home use, but not knowing how, and cousidering it. a difficult and risky task, is deterred from undertaking it, Some yeurs ago I learned to make cheese while visiting at the home of a friend," and it has proved a very useful part of my education, by supplying our tablu with a good and wholesome article.

The problem of tho clover-sickness or clover-fatigue, ns it is called on the Continent, has been prominent in Russia for some years, and an eminent agricultural scientist, Professor Koffo witeli, who studied the subject with special care, lias recorded the results of his investigations in the Russian journal for experimental agriculture. His experiments were made chiefly with pot-cultures, by which method he washable.Jo .exclude outside influences; fie" useu soil suffering in a high degree from clover-sickness, as well as soil in which clover had never been cultivated, and as showing that pot-culture afford ed satisfactory means of studying the question, the professor mentions that clover-sickness' soon manifested itself in the...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 19 November 1914

[ OF RURAL INTEREST I "Rusticus.") ! -Tho people of Victoria are indebted to the I?ev_ D. A. Cameron for his public tribute to the magnificent cour age with which the settlers in the drought-stricken districts are facing the troubles that are thick upon them. People who are not brought into per sonal touch with the men on the land in those parts and who form their con clusions from published reports of ap peals for Government assitance und do tails of what the Government intend doing to help settlers, are apt to over look the many sturdy men among those building up the producing industries who are manfully meeting diilieultios that would discourage any but the stoutest-hearted. 'Mr. Cameron's ac count of what he saw during a recent visit to the northern parts of the Mal leo is therefore timely and welcome.

SUSCEPTIBILITY OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 19 November 1914

SUSCEPTIBILITY OF MILK. As an instance of the influence that objectionable odours have on milk even before being drawn from the cow, the following case is reported:-A herd of milking cows were put in a field, in one part of which a calf had been buried, but not sufficiently deep. Thus the cows breathed the air infected with the mia sma of putrefaction. The milk of the cows was found to be spoilt'-not only so, but the contagion seemed in some way to pass to th<; milk of some other cows that were in eontaet with them in the milking shed. Other facts show ing the sensitiveness of milk are cited. If a bowl of milk happens to be left near a vessel containing a preparation of tar, the milk will absorb the odour, and milk should bo avoided that has been standing in the room of anyone suffering from tuberculosis. These facts demonstrate the necessity of care in handling milk, and show that cow -sheds should be kept in a condition of great cleanliness, and that even the air that t...

GREEN OATS FOR FATTENING CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 19 November 1914

GREEN OATS FOR FATTENING CATTLE. Th? value of the green Algerian oat crop for fattening sheep is gaining a high place in Tasmania farming opera tions. The crop grows so strongly in this State that in most districts it is necessary to feed the paddocks off up till September. While benefiting the crop a good return is also secured from' tho stock thus fattened. In some eases Algerian oats are sown to provide feed alone, and not with any idea of after wards cutting for hay. On the Pal merston Estate, ill the Gressy district, the greater part of 200 acres was sown with Algerians for such a purpose this season. It- is found that sheep are readily fattened in this manner, and the paddocks turn oil' a large number of fat stock. The land is also well ma nured by the sheep, and is ready for cultivation for the following crop at a very early stage. By using the crops in this way the manager (Mr. C. E. Stewart) has been enabled to turn off, on an average/over a fat sheep to the acre siuco the ...
