Farmers' Corner FOOD NEEDED IN SOIL [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 15 May 1914

Farmers' Corner FOOD NEEDED IN SOIL Like most other plants, whea^, ro- ' quires the presence iu the soil of fij number of elements which it assirni- j as plant food, and without any one | of which tho crop must be a failure in a greater or lesser degree. Most of these elements are piesent i'i tie soil in sufficient quantities, but the supply of fche three most essential phosphorus, nitrogen and potash-is often too amall for the plants need ; more often utili one or all is present in abundance, but not in a form in which tha plant can make use of it. Hence it is that in many eonutries in which wheat is extensively grown it is necessary (o use fertilisers that will supply all three Fortunately, in Australia the sup ply of nitrogen and potash in the soil appears to be eqaal to requirements and it is only necessary to add phos* phorns-which, luckily for the farmer is tho cheapest of the three. Tho addition is made in the form of super* phosphate, because it dissolves readily in the soil...

Popular Science. 4 LATEST DEVELOPMENTS. SIR OLIVER LODGE. Sir Oliver Lodge has attained the distinguished position he occupies in the scientific world in the face of circumstances by no means favour able. From 14 to 20 he was en gaged in business, and t11 his early studies were accomplished in his lei sure hours. Now he is principul of the University of Birmingham, and one of the greatest of living authorities on electricity, mechan ics, and kindred matters. MAN'S TWO MEMORIES. Monsignor Benson in the course of a recent lecture at Caxton Hall, London, expounded the theory of men having two minds-an objective consciousness and a .subjective con sciousness. These two memories might be compared with an upper and a lower room respectively, con nected by a trap door. Dreams were the workings of the subjective conscience, uncontrolled by the cri ticism and reason of the objective conscience. I LIQUID AIR REFRIGERATION.

CHAPTER XXXII.-(Continued.) The girl's sober words had brought him to earth again, and banished his short-lived hopes and exultation. He felt his air-castles tumbling about him in ruins. "It is better to face the worst," i.ucille continued, sadly. "There is ao thought of danger in the town, though the people are excited. Jason Gore believes these men-of-war have found the island by chance, and that they are not sure it is the place they are seeding. He has already given orders that no fires shall be lighted. The guns are masked, and from the sea the fortress looks like a barren cliff. So the ships will probably sail around the island for a day or two -they can't get through the outer reef-and when they find no trace of human occupation they will go away again." ^es, I am afraid they will," as sented Dick. ...

Banana Wisdom. MANY USEFUL HINTS REGARDING AN EVERYDAY COMMODITY. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 15 May 1914

Banana Wisdom. MANY" USEFUJJ HINTS REGARD ING AN EVERYDAY COM MODITY. r wonder if it is because bananas1 are cheap, like the homely herring, that people do not realise nil the possibilities in them. Bananas have no drawbacks. They are nourishing', they are fattening for children, they are digestible. Perhaps they are unpopular in the kitchen because they are not under stood. The best way of converting cooks is to tell them what the banana can do. Here are a few recipes : SHAM STRAWBERRIES. Take half a dozen bananas and mash them to a pulp. Keep * on mashing and adding a little castor sugar until the fruit is like clot ted cream, and quite smooth, with out a lump remaining. Then add a tablespoonful of strawberry jam and whisk this all up together. Buy twopennyworth of cream and whip it stiff.. If you happen to have a spare white of an egg left over from a cake, it is a good plan to whip the white to a stiffunow* and stir it in with the cream. Mix banana pulp with the .jam and the cre...

CHAPTER XXXIV. IN STRANGE COMPANY. At that terrible moment, when it seemed that the slightest delay must mean capture and death, Dick's cour age and nervo did not fail him. By j a quick dash into the shrub he might escape, hut he spurned the chance while his task was jet unaccomplish ed. With splendid heroism, and with out pausing, to look over his shoul der, he thrust the blazing match into the rtil-soaked heap of wood. Only a touch was needed. A great flame roared and hissed in his lace a? he sprang backwards from under the tower. He had triumphed, and in bis elation he felt no fear ; he was reckless of consequences now. He wheeled round to sec the three meu from the hut led by Montcjo, boar ins?: down upon him with savage cries. It was too late to run, and Dick determined to make as good a fight for his life as possible. At his feet lay one of the faggots-a thick and heavy one-and he stooped quickly and grasped it. His bat was pulled well down in front, and his back was to the fi...

GHAPTHR A CRITICAL MOMENT. So far all promised *<voll. Ths time for action was at hand, and it found Dick with steady nerves and unfal tering courage. He moved about the room for a few moments, purposely making noise enough to be hoard be low. On some hooks behind a cur tain hung various garments belong ing to the doctor, ana from the3e he selected a linen jacket of the kind worn on the island, and a soft hat that concealed his features. In ad dition he took at random a dozen other articles of clothing, and tossed them on the bed. Then ho blew out the candles, and in the semi-dnrkuess of the room ho put on the jacket and hat, removed his shoes, and thrust them into his side pockets. Next he reconnoitcred from the two windows, watching and listening for a tivno at each. The street that led towards Government House seemed empty, though here and there a light flashed across it. Down in the little court there was an unbroken gloom and silence, aud the town itself was far less...

It is doubtful whether there ever was a mysterious disappearance which created quite so tremendous a sensation as was aroused by that of Klizabeth Canning", who disap peared from homo on New Year's Day, 1572. She was either one of the most brazen of liars, or one c«" . tho most unfortunate of women. Elizabeth, hieing " a general servant, had been given ? a holiday, and set out from her mother's home in Al dermnnbury, dressed in her best, to pay a visit to relatives. She did not reach her destination however, but disappeared mysteriously. Days lengthened into weeks, but- no trace of her could be found. She was ad vertised for, a small army of search ers ransacked London, and prayers were offered up for her in the chur ches. On January 29, however, she was found at her mother's door, bleed ing, emaciated; and in rags.
