HOW WHEATS ARE BRED. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 20 June 1913
HOW WHEATS ARE BRED. To explain liow to get new varieties of wheat by crossing is a very big order; but, briefly, the pollen: of one variety (called the male) ib dusted on the ripe stigma of the second variety (the female). The ear of the female has one-third at the top cut oil with a pair of scissors, and about another third'of the spikelets stripped off from the bottom. All flowers, except the outside pair, are removed by a pair of forceps from each of the remain ing spikelets. The three anthers are removed from the flowers Just "when they are turning yellow. The ears are then wrapped in cotton-wool until the stigmas are ripe. The anthers of the male parent, when : bright-yellow and just ready to burst, are taken in the forceps, broken in half, and the conterits dusted over 'the feathery, style of the female ear. ..The ear is then covered up again for about a fortnight. The best varieties to ex periment with are any two which sup plement one another; that is to say, one of which I...

A SOUTH AFRICAN HERO. During the festivities in connection with the opening of the railway ex tension to Bulawayo, an accident of , a character both unique and alarming occurred, attended by the bravest deed I ever saw (says a private of the Scottish Rifles). | I was stationed at Gaberones at the time, and on the day in question a large number of trains de luxe were onveying guests to Bulawayo to par ticipate in the opening of the first , stretch of railway connected with the ' Cape-to-Cairo line. As is well known,1 to each train is • attached an electric dynamo car for lighting purposes, ' these ^machines being driven by oil ! power.

A TRUE GHOST STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 20 June 1913
A TRUE GHOST STORY. Some fifty years ago a military man bought Castle Crolts and an estate in County Kerry. It had been the re sidence o£ the last Prince, and waB a large house with legends attaching to it. When the family had been there some time a banshee, as befitted such a historical place, duly haunted one side of the building at the correct hour, and with the sounds considered proper to the species. There were four boys and one girl. One of them, a boy of eight, said in the deliberate manner peculiar to him; "Miss Hum phreys" (the nursery governess), "I want to see the ghost; will you call me at 12 o'clock?" No' one thought of refusing this boy things, somehow, so at five'minutes to twelve she went to his bedroom. To her great fright, the window was open; and looking up the great side of the house, she spied a small boy. He had climbed right up to the roof by means of: the • ivy, and had found the banshee in thb shape of some owls' nests. Their snor ing had been translated by ...
AN IMPORTANT INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 20 June 1913
IMPORTANT INVENTION. It is announced that perfect com munication by sound by means of link ed cable and land telegraph lines be tween London and San Francisco is now possible. It is claimed that this invention by Mr. John Gott, an Eng lishman, ends the • search made for years by engineers and cable experts for an appliance which would carry the Morse dots and dashes for several thousand miles,' and eliminate the pre vailing method of receiving messages in the tracing of a pen on a strip of paper. How great an advance this represents in electrical communica tion can best be appreclate'd by the specialists, Including Mr. T. A. Edi son, -who have tried in vain to accom plish this identical object. The in strument was first put into use last July, and until the formal announce ment was made a week or two ago even the closest competitors knew nothing of it. The Commercial Cable Company officials assert that the in vention/surpasses in importance any thing which has been added to the subm...
AGRICULTURE. WHERE FARMERS FAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 20 June 1913
AGRICULTURE. | •WHERfe FARMERS FAIL. No : lino of work has been . more abused by lack of' ays torn than farm ing. The great fertility of the soil has made large cropB' possible with a minimum of cultivation. Farmers have in many instanced in the past gone to their worlt with little appre ciation of the value that good man agement would be' to1 them. They have looked upon systematic keeping accounts and a Btudy of their busi ness as something effeminate and not in keeping with the kind of work they do. » All these things are changing, how ever, and the farmers of to-day are beginning to appreciate the value of system in dairying. Perhaps nothing has been done more to stimulate this development than the campaign car ried 011 by agricultural papers advo cating cow-testing associations and similar lines of work. As soon as a man begins to apply business meth ods to one branch of farming he liuds how much more valuable the work be comes, and he naturally branches out, and uses Bimilar, m...
MISHAPS TO ROYAL GEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 20 June 1913
MISHAPS TO ROYAL GEMS. The accident whicli recently befell the pearl necklace of the Queen Dort' ager of Italy, when the string broke and the priceless little pearls were scattered in every direction, recalls a similar mishap to the splendid ropfe which .used to adorn the neclc of Queen'Alexandra on certain State oc casions. On stepping into the gilded coach on her way to a State opening of Par liament in the last reign, her necklace caught In the ornate door-handle, and the pearls fell In a shower, and rolled ed from'the crimson carpet on to tlie muddy ground: Instantly great offi cers of State, equerries and royal ser vants alike were busy endeavoring to find the scattered gems, which, by a miracle, were' all recovered, not-wlth standlng'that many were burled in tlie mud. 1
TESTING SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 20 June 1913
TESTING SEEDS. As it is essential the farmer shall sow the best possible seeds, and as he cannot sow it if lie lias not got it,' and does not know what sort of seed he has sown till it comes out o£ the ground, these simple home tests for germinating values of samples are given. By the blotting-paper method some slips of ordinary blotting-paper, 18in. by 6in„ are folded twice, no as to get three thicknesses, top'and bot tom, and laid on an ordinary tiinner plate. If the grains to be tested are small, they are laid on the blot-sheet, if large between the folds, and the paper is kept moist (not soaked) in an atmosphere of about 70 or 80 de grees. It is better to work with a hundred grains, as the percentage s more easily arrived at. Every second day, in the case of seeds showing signs of growing, they should be re moved and counted, and about the seventh day the 'balance may be count ed out. Those which have germinated are deducted from the lifeless ones, and the result is the percenta...
REASONS FOR ROTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 20 June 1913
REASONS FOR ROTATION. At the basis of all genuine rotations lies this fact that plants differ from one another; they differ from one an other in their demands upon the soil, both chemical and physical; they dif fer with regard to their root system, depth of feeding, their moisture re quirements, their time of feeding, their dates in reaching maturity, etc. ^ariy plants impoverish the soil; a few enrich it; some spoil its physical condition, while others improve it in that regard. Many crops favor the growth of weeds, while others either are able to hold the weeds in check or require such cultivation and treat ment as will prevent their growth. ii these differences fit plants for different places in rotation, and a well-arranged rotation is one in which the strong points of one crop follow so as to Jit into the weak points of another, or vice versa, and' in .this way reduce deficiencies to .a " mini mum. A crop that requires a large amount of one element should be fol lowed by one th...

Federal Voting System. ELECTORAL OFFICER'S REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 20 June 1913
Federal Voting System. ELECTOPAL OFFICER'S REMARKS. Mr. McLaren, . the Commonwealth chief electoral officer for New South Wales, was interviewed in Sydney re garding some allegations of irregulari ties in connection with the present elections. The first subject mentioned was the statement by Senator Millen at Parramatta on Thursday night to the effect that the electoral roll card index for New South. Wales contained about 70,000 "dummy" cards, i.e., substitutes for signed claims for en rolment provided for by the regula tion sanctioned by Parliament. Mr. McLaren said:—"When the police can vass was made in 1912 they had in every case to obtain a complete claim from each person qualified for enrol ment, and in those cases in which a claim was not furnished at the timr what is known as a dummy card was placed in the cabinets and the proper card of claim was sent to the elector ior completion. Practically the whole of these dummy cards had been re placed by properly completed claims. In...

"The biggest politician (vhich New South Wales has retired! ia Sir William Lyno, who has been associated with tlic Hume in State and Federal politics tor something like 33 years, and who has [been affectionately known to two generations as the 'old war horse'—for Sir William has been a master of craft, and a maker and breaker of Ministries (writes Hugh Conaut, Wilmot-street, Sydney, in the "Catholic Press". ) It would be easier to say what Sir Wil liam hasn't been politically than to enumerate the positions ho has filled during the past three decades. In State politics he was Secretary for Public Works, Secretary, for Lands, Leader of the Opposition, and Premier and Colo nial Treasurer. He was also a 'clegav; to the Federal Convention. It was Sir William who was asked to form the first Commonwealth Ministry, but he missed the task on to Sir Edmund Barton.
