THE CELLAR OF DEATH. A NIGHT-WATCHMAN'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 15 May 1914

THE CELLAR OF DEATH. : A NIGHT-WATCHMAN'S STORY. Do I think you inquisitive, ' sir? Nay, but I don't. 'Tis only natural for anyone to ask a man who isn't thirty-five yet what it was that turned his hair white. Kor you don't often ECG a follow of my ago with snow whlto locks liko these, I'll warrant. I reckon I'm what they call uniquo. It was a. single night in the collar of tlie Northcliester Sugar IIouso that dul it, it you caro to know, though I ain't so sure that I altogether likes telling my story even now, after six years and more. Many a night have I wakened up from sleep, trembling from head to foot, after dreaming about that terrible night. The hor ror of it seems fixed 111 my brain past all forgetting. It conies back to 1110 so plainly that somehow my blood dries up all in a moment. I tell you, sir, if over any man was rescued from death, by tlie skin of Ills teetli, It's the white-haired man who stands be- i fore you. But first oS all, before 1 begin to 1 reach the blood-c...

CROPS FOR FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 15 May 1914

CROPS FOR FODDER. I Tlie time seems opportune to di rect the attention of farmers to tho necessity of planting fodder crops, and for tlieir subsequent conservation as a provision for stock and feed dur ing the winter. Tlie weather this season has been very dry, and in alt most every district absence of rain has been severely felt. The man who does not take this wise precaution of providing winter feed will have a grim realisation of his lack of forethought when he iinds his dairy herd, and other stock, languishing for the food which Nature withholds during her unjiropitious seasons. It is, however, quite within tho pro vince of the farmer to conserve suili cient fodder for his stock to tide over tho winter. There are so many ex amples of the splendid results from silos that it is hard to conceive why the practice of making silage has not become more general throughout tho State. When we have the managerB of but ter and cheese factories reporting "tho satisfactory increase of milk su...

SIZE OF SHEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 15 May 1914

SIZE OF SHEAF. There can be 110 set size for a sheaf, t"K the size must bo regulated accord ing to conditions. For instance, In wet districts, or where the crops aro late in maturing, the small shoaf is the safer, as the sun and wind aro better able to penetrate through tho sheaf, and so minimise the risk of sprouting or moulding about the band. Again, by making the sheaves on tho small size, stacking can be commenc ed a clay or two sooner. On the oth er hand, however, the large-sized sl caves have their advantages. First, it is more economical on twine; sec ondly, much time is saved in stook ing and stacking; thirdly, a fair-sized sheaf will stand up against winds in . the Ptook bettor than the small size.

FLOCK MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 15 May 1914

FLOCK MANAGEMENT. If strong, healthy and vigorous lambs arc wanted, extra care must ho given to the ewe lloclc from3 tirna ol' mating to time of lambing. During this time the ewes should bo steadily gaining in Uesh. It is not desirable I that the ewe flock alter mating should ever have to become the scavengers of the farm; that business should bo Iett for store sheep. The ewo flock la too valuable for that work, for It Is from this flock that the future feeding lamb is obtained. One often hears of heavy lossea be ing experienced by sheep breeders through ewes being frightened by dogs and other causes, and this brings tc mind reasons that ought to be up permost in the minds of all those who haVo charge bl lambing ewes. Among them there is one precaution that should never be absent, and that is this: That tho ewe flock should never be allowed to bo rushed by tho shep herd's dog, nor should It bo hurried when being driven, nor under any olr* cumstances should it bo given an opportunity...
