Grit for the Fowls. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 February 1914
Grit for the Fowls. Some people have the impression that it is not necessary to supply grit to fowls which are on free range, as the biuds will find sufficient for their needs. This may be true when there in a gravel road or seashore, etc., near by to which the fowls have aocess; otherwise not. In a month's time a large flock of f. wls daily foraging over the ,ame space will clear away all the suitable grit from a large area. Unless the folws can range where there is an unlimited supply of grit, it will be necessary to provide the .a with a supply after a certain length ot t?le no matter how much range they Enjoy. On land where poultry had ticver been kept ebfore, a flook might pess.bay get along for several years with the grit which the fowls coulo fi d at hand, but except in favored sit uat.ons the grit supply runs out. So th) poultry keeper must supply the lack- Grt may be bought,- as there are many brands in the market. But with a grit mill and the material, the poultry farmer c...
The Benefit of Legumes [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 February 1914
The Benefit of Legumes It is a well known fact that a ,ig orous leguminous crop such as peas or clover enriches the land in nitrogen and that another crop, say wheat or oats., following in rotation will benefit fror. the nitrogen residues. Recent investigations show, however, that the cereal may derive benefit from the eg ume even when both are growing at the same time. In the "Jour. Agri;. Eci.," vol. 3, experiments are describ ed bearing this inferenoe. Oats were grown in quartz sand in small pots placed in larger pots also filled with ouartz sand but growing peas. The inner pots tIus grow oats only and tie larger outer pots peas only, and in both cases all the necessary plant fonls were added except nitrogen. The inner pots were of two kinds. Where they were of the ordinary porous pattern the oats grew vigorously. In the latte case it is believed that soluble nitrogen ous matters diffused through the inner pot from the peas growing outside. Confirmation of these results under fie...
AMUSEMENTS. " I HAVE REPAID." [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 February 1914
AMUSEMENTS. " I HAVE REPAID." With cool weather obtaining, there would probably have been a good audience at the Town Hall on Monday evening had Conrad Power, in " I have repaid," been better advertised. As it was the attendance was only fair, but those that did put in an appearance were generally ap preciative of the performance. The play is one adapted to the popular taste, a simple plot introducing the usual wily villain who is married to the poor (but virtuous) hero's sister, while salvation comes through the providential interference of a smart detective and a shrewd comic relief. For the most part the acting was very well carried out, the work of Mr Power and Miss Ada Lawrence evoking most approbation.

American View of British Farming. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 February 1914
American View of B~itish Fanig An American, who reccntly visited England has nothing but praise for the rural scenes, the superb apstures, and high quality stock, both purebrcd and grade. The hospitality of the people of rural Britain is without bounds, and in raying that the American only en dorses colonial experience. Having said the nice things, the American gives some practical criticisms on the moth ods of doing certain kinds of work on the farm, which do not come up to the American, or even colonial standard. In Lancashire, he saw men raking hay They had a lumbering hay-rake, out of all proportion heavy. Two men were raking. They had two big, heavy horses. They were going tandem. A big man was riding the first horse, and a second man was driving the second horse. In America, a boy twelve years old with a light horse and a light American sulky rake would do as much as both those big men and big horses would accomplish. In other places h= saw gangs of men turning and shaking out...

GREEN MANURING AND FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 February 1914
GREEN MANURING AND FER TILISER. The system of green manuring to furnish a supply of organic matter, and to collect nitrogen from the air in the case of the green manuring crip being leguminous-can be eomployed with decided advantage on sandy soil, and also on medium soils, for fields to which it may not be convenient to an ply farmyard manure. To got the Hest results from green manuring, it is necessary to supplement it by the application of fertilisers. On this subject a distinguished German pro fessor of Agriculture has the following observations:-The necessity for the addition of nitrogen is dependent cn dredss, not able to face the winter without a set of furs valued at £60 or £70 being added to half a dozen other sets.

RIFLE SHOOTING. MARYBOROUGH V. BUNG BONG. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 February 1914
RIFLE SHOOTING. MARYBOROUGH V. BUNG BONG. Last Saturday afternoon nine members of the Mlaryborough Rifle Club journeyed to Bung Bong by 'bus to shoot the return match against members of the Avoca Rifle Club living at Bung Bong. The shoot was over 500 and 600 yards, seven shots and two sighters at each range. The weather conditions were all that could be desired for rifle shooting. The Bung Bong rifle shooters have gone to considerable trouble, and at their own expense, in erecting a target and mounds for the purpose of practising, and they have selected an ideal range for trying a marksman's abilities, as the wind has full scope of playing its vagaries with the shooter. An interval between the two shoots was taken advantage of by partaking of refreshments supplied by the Bung Bong shooters' wives and lady friends, which were very much ap, preciated by the visiting shooters. A. J. Gearin (66) was top score for Bung Bong, and W. H. Moore (62) and Kent (62), for Maryborough. Bung Bong....
THE COMING STRUGGLE. IMPORTANCE OF ORGANISATION. (CONTRIBUTED) [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 February 1914
THE COMING STRUGGLE. IPORIANCE OF ORGANISATION. (CoNTaIBUTe ) There are many Liberals who fail to realise the importance of orga nisation. Labor is always orga nised; there are more than four hundred thousand adult unionists in the Commonwealth, and the vast majority, practically the whole, of the unions are political bodies. Liberal organisation is difficult. The reason is simple, Liberalism stands for the freedom of the in dividual. There is no particular class interest which binds Liberals together as trade unionists are united by a desire to raise their wages. The supporters of the Liberal party are drawn from all classes, to preserve the highest tra ditions of the British race. At the present moment this ques tion of organisation is of more than ordinary importance. There is little doubt that the double dissolution is comparatively near. Labor's victory in New South Wales has inspired it with the fighting spirit. A few months. even a few weeks back it feared fight, but now, rig...

TEMPERANCE NOTES. (Contributed by Temperance Council.) ACCOMMODATION. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 February 1914
TEMPERANCE NOTES. (Contributed by Tempocrance Council.t ACCOPMMODATION. " A public-house without the drink, Where men may sit and talkl and think, And sober home return." It may be hoped that Mr Watt has dropped the malclee licences oro posals, as well as some of his old colleagues. The only excuse advanced for them is that traveliers need beds, meals, and the general accommoda tion of home while away from home, and it is proposed to supply then?m with beer. The fact is that private enterprise is meeting the need for accommodation without luxuries, and if we could only get the fear of licensed hotels out of the way much more would be done. New Zealand experience s; ows that when it is realisesd that no licence has come to stay accommo dation improves, as compared with licence days. The people who -ru,' the hotels have accommodation as their sole means o sup-or a they run this 'or all t t it is 'worth.

HOMEBUSH LOWER. FAREWELL SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 February 1914
HOMEBUSH LOWER. FAREWELL SOCIAL. On Wednesday evening last a pleasant social evening took place in the Public Hall is a send-off to Miss Ruby Garner and her step-sister, Miss Mary Horne. The first-men tioned lady was a member of the Public Hall committee, and has done much work in connection with the interests of the building. Both ladies took their departure to Bal larat on Thursday last. Although the event was arranged at very short notice and the night was exceedingly warm, a very enjoyable time was spent with songs, musical items, dancing, etc., the success of the function being mostly due to the energetic efforts of the secretary of the hall (Miss E. Squires), who had most of the arrangements to attend to, but who unfortunately took ill that evening and was unable to at tend until a late hour. During the evening the following songs were rendered, viz.:-" Eileen Alianah," Mrs H. Gee; "The churchyard ghosts," Mr F. Smith. Mr F. Adams gave several exhibitions of stepdancing. Suppe...

RAILWAY MEN'S WAGES. THE NEW REGULATION. THE UNION'S REPLY. MELBOURNE, TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 February 1914
RAILWAY MEN'S WAGES. THE NEW REGULATION. THE UNION'S REPLY. MELBOURNE, TUESDAY. Mr F. Hyett, general secretary of the Victorian Railways Union, on being interviewed to-day with re gard to the revision of the regula tion, said that whilst appreciating the increments to various grades as far as they go, the big majority of employes will cer tainly take the view that they do not go anything like far enough. If the statement given is correct, viz., that the increases will cover about 12,000 men, and involve an additional expenditure of £80,000 annually, it'amounnts to an avgrage of £6 13s 4d per man per annum for the men who actually participate, or less than 6d per day. Spread over the whole service, the nett advance in the wages and salaries bill amounts to a fraction over 21d per day per employe.
