Silver Bee[?] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

Silver Beef, A correspondent is inquiring" con cerning the cultivation of sugar beet for -forage for stock. In New Zea land this root has come into a good deal of favor in recent years, and par ticularly in the South Island, is oust ing rape, turnips and kale as a crop jfor lamb and sheep fattening. It has the dual advantage of providing highly edible foliage and root. Tests have this year been made with autumn sowing in some of a drier districts, but they have not been evenly successful. Sil : ver beet is a moisture loving plant and thrives best in mild climates, although it will stand a good deal of heat. It should do well in our irrigation dis tricts. The ground should be deeply cultivated and worked to a fine tilth. Sowing should take place preferably in September, although fair results may be obtained from Autumn sowing. With early Spring sowing it should be ready to feed in January, and, if it flourishes, should have a heavy carrying capacity. The seed allowance should be from...

SHEEP HINTS FOR BREEDERS Grazing Values [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

HINTS FOR BREEDERS By -J. p. Grazing Values irToisssor P-erkihs, of Roseworthy 'Agricultural College, in South Austra lia, by exhaustive records taken over the seven-years period, 1906-12, has worked out the grazing values of dif ferent forages grown on the farm tor sheep. The mission of the farm, apart from its educational and experimental aspects, is to grow cereals on a recuper ative basis in combination with, sheep breeding and fattening. Hence no special attention is given to the forages to demonstrate experimentally their grazing capacities. They are given a minimum of cultivation, and are grown chiefly to assist in the maintenance of the sheep. Professor Perkins holds that on any farm where sheep are kept areas should be sown to suitable forage crops , that can be grazed, and at rtos<= wortliy the plants sown have been rape, Ikale, crimson clover, maize, sorghum, turnips, peas, white mustard, sown grasses and lucerne. The average an nual rainfall for the period 130...

Rape [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

Rape More attention has been devoted to rape than any other .forage crop at itoseworthy, and that because it adapts itself to the average conditions of climate. It is found invaluable be tween June and January. Rape has not been grown as a crop which receiv ed good cultivation. What is very often done is to put the skim plough over the stubble, break the soil up to 2J/<>in., run a roller over the land, and then sow dry, at the rate of 4 to 51b. per acre of seed mixed with y2 cwt. of bonedust. In Victoria, as a result of fallowing for rape, double the results are obtained in similar rainfall dis tricts. The following table shows the average monthly carrying capacity for the seven years:— _ Month. gheep. per acre.

BANGER OF OVER-CROWDING [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

BANGER OF OVER-CROWDING In the furnishing of any room the Question of the proper selection and -.hanging' of pictures is one which should should be . given careful con sideration. Few people realise the im portance of this factor in the general artistic effect produced in ' their rooms. Probably the most common mistake made "in; home: furnishing is the use of too many pictures. A-wall"crowded with, odd-sized pictures, usually of in discriminate selection, produces the niost confusing a.nd annoying effect. We often hear the' remark that there is no place for a certain pic» ture. This very statement is pr'»of that the picture should not be hung,, for the simple reason that there is a sufficient number already. Most people, however,., are. very apt to squeeze tnat picture in at some point, and by doing so produce a confused effect. The space above a mantel is apt to suffer, as many people still hang their pictures in the old-fashioned; way, letting them hang out at the j top. It cannot...

"HOW I KEEP HEALTHY." Personal .Statements fey weil-ksiowsi People, One of the most distinguished men of to-day recently said to the present writer: WX was rather sceptical at first, you know —I suppose most people are, more op less. But when I saw so many well known people recommending the stuff—» some of them personal friends of mine— I knew there must be something in it. So I asked my doctor, and he said: ' Certainly, Sanatogen is a good tiling. Take it by all means.' I took it, and it did me so much good that I felt bound to send a tes timonial, too." Such is, no doubt, the history of most of the following letters, and of hundreds more which have been sent to us by equally distinguished men and women.

SUB-DISTRICT GAMES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

SUB-DISTKICT GAMES Favorable weather was enjoyed by Sub District clubs for the resumption of pennant matches on January 10. Results were very mixed, the scarcity of heavy scores being a feature of the - afternoon's cricket. It is not often that a single day produces such figures as are credited to Ouddon, who scored 154, and Forman, who dropped seven wickets for 20 runs. While Cuddon's performance was a great one, Forman's was the heroic stroke of the afternoon, as it was done in defiance of the probabilities, which all pointed to run-making rather than wicket taking. BRUNSWICK V. MALVERN. The pitch at Brunswick was first occupied by the local men, who began indifferently. "When two cheap wickets had fallen, how ever, Dowling and M'Kenzie united to put on about 70 runs, of which M'Kenzie got the lion's share—47. In his lively scoring there were two 6's and five 4's. Dowling answered Cor 34, made in good style. A mild col lapse brought the record to seven for 107 before Hodder and Hy...

New South Wales V. South Australia [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

New South Wales V. South Australia Under very favorable conditions the return match between New South Wales and South Australia was commenced at Adelaide on January 9. The home team included Hill and Whitty, the former being captain. He won the toss, and deputed Mayne and D. M. Steele to open the innings. Cotter and Massie began the bowling, but' the former soon gave way to Keileway. Twenty-two runs came through, and Mayne was then nicely taken at the wickets by M'Kew, kei leway getting the wicket. As Crawford went in, Mailey relieved Massie. The English man played quietly, and 65 minutes from the start 50 appeared. Presently Folkard and Massie bowled, and the latter had Crawford caught for 11. Two for 60. The batsman had been 45 minutes at the wickets. Moyes and Steele were in at lunch time with 38 and 11 respectively, the score being 72. Massie and Keileway bowled after the interval, and Massie had Steele caught at slip. The young | batsman had made 42 very nicely. Cham berlain an...

Victoria V. New Zealand [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

i mt_ Victoria V. New Zealand j.ue :New. Zealand cricketers made their first appearance in Melbourne on January 9, when a game was commenced against a strong Victorian eleven. It is 14 years since a cricket team from the Dominion visited this State. Our side contained a sprinkling of new material. The enforced absence of Park, Ryder, and others brought opportunity to M'lTonald, Lampard, Heather, and Lugton, ail of whom did something on the very first day to justify their selection. The weather and wicket were entirely favor able to run-getting, and when Reese won the toss from Axrmstrong it was at once de cided that New Zealand should bat first. Armstrong's acceptance of the Victorian cap taincy gave much satisfaction. It may be hoped that this arrangement will represent the beginning of the yery end of our cricket difficulties. The' Victorian attack was opened by two of the promotees, M'Donald and Lampard, who represent two distinct bowling methods, M'Donald being almost a speed-me...

Immigration Activity [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

Immigration Activity In so partially occupied a country as Victoria the acquisition of a few thou sand new people, as settlers or farm laborers, would not become manifest to the eye so far as settlement is con cerned. It would require hundreds of thousands to do that, yet the hundreds we are securing each year must event ually make an appreciable difference in national production. Each individual must help that desirable ad vance. There has been a small but steady influx within the last four years, and possibly there has been a mea surable relief to the market for farm laborers. For example, the area un der wheat last year was about a re cord, a result which may, in part, be due to more labor being- available. For the present year the State has already secured 14,000 berths for assisted immi grants from England to Victoria. A special publicity campaign is to be, in augurated in the provinces to attract land sinkers and agricultural laborers. In America Mr F. T. A. Fricke, the Vic to...

Yields gener alljr have come up to expectations. Notwithstanding the ravages of rust, the harvest will be a record one in re spect of aggregate output, if not of average yield to the acre. A few weeks ago complaints were general in regard to scarcity of railway trucks. The dif ficulty appears to have been overcome, and the wheat traffic is being efficiently handled. Scarcity of water is com plained of in several districts. Grass is plentiful, and farm animals are in excellent condition. In various locali ties bush iires have done a deal of dam age.
