THE RURAL WORLD FARM AND FIELD QUESTIONS ANSWERED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

QUESTIONS ANSWERED Silver Beet.—W.H.—See Farm and Field paragraph below. Bin.—Farmer.—A bin 12 feet high. and 14 feet in diameter wouid be ^needed. Trees to Kill:—A Busnman.—Arsenic and caustic soda will kill green trees. The chemicals should be mixed in the proportion of two parts soda to one of arsenic into a paste. (Having bored a hole in the tree with an augur, fill it to about two-thirds with tne paste and firmly plug it up again. The size and depth of the hole will depend on the size of the tree, the idea being that the poison must be introduced into the sap sys tem of the tree.

CROSS-COUNTRY RIDING CONSIDERATION CLAIMED REFORM URGED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

CROSS-COITNTBY HIDING CON SiDER ATION CLAIMED REFORM URGED Of the nine riders who -had mounts ■ in the Jumpers' Flat Race at Aspen dale Park on January 10, only N. D. Godby could claim experience in jump ing events. The presence of so many fiat race jockeys in events originally intended not only for approved hurdle and steeplechase horses but for cross . country horsemen, has been the sub ject of much comment. Cross-country men resent what they regard as the intrusion " of crack flat race riders on the restricted area of the jumping rider's field of operations. They point out that even in the jump ing season their opportunities are few enough. In the summer months many of them go for weeks without a mount owing to the limited number of races in which their servi-ces may be re quired. At the Plemington, Caulfield, Williamstown, and Moonee Valley - meetings a hurdle race , and a steeple chase are usually included in the pro gramme, but on some of the other courses the day's racing con...

STALLIONS FIGHT VALUABLE HORSE DIES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

STALLIONS FIGHT VALUABLE HORSE DIES In a fignt with Prince Foote, winner of the Melbourne Cup of 1309, the im ported stallion Simile sustained injuries that have resulted in his death. Mr John Brown, of New South Wales, owned .Simile, and for many years the horse had been at his stud at Witting ham (New South Wales) with Prince Foote and other sires. Ten days ago Simile entered an enclosure occupied by Prince Foote, and is supposed to have been immediately attacked by the Cup winner. The two stallions fought viciously for some time before they were separated. Simile was very roughly treated, and sustained such injuries that Mr Brown ordered him to be destroyed. A bullet ended the career of the imported stal lion. Prince Foote came through the strug gle without any ill-effects. He was not even marked. Simile was foaled in 1S97, and was by St. Simon from Mimi (winner of the English Oaks in 1891) by Barcaldine. He was looked upon as one of the best-bred St. Simon horses that ever came ...

'Some of the Sabbath travellers carry guns to the plains or the hills. Others are accompanied by greyhounds or fox terriers, for coursing. But the most popular accessories for rabbiting are ferret and net. Parties of boys scoui' the plains around Parwan, and return at night laden with rabbits. Men are less gregarious, and pursue their plea sure alone or in couples and trios. Nor do they toil for big bags, as a rule. Death has a field day among the rab bits on Sunday.
