FOUNDLING HOSPITAL BRIGHTENING BABIES' LIVES A START IN LIFE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

BRIGHTENING BABIES' LIVES A START IN LIFE George had just made an astounding discovery. When one is only four months old there are so many things to discover that it is possible to come across some thing' new and amazing almost every 'day. George, pink and chubby, was ly - ing on his back in a bassinette on the Sawn of the Foundling Hospital in Berry street, East Melbourne, with his fat little legs twisted in the air in a manner that would make any acrobat mad with envy. In fact, it was while in this position that George made the discovery referred to—he found that he had toes. Columbus, when in sight of the New |World, was not more thrilled than was George, who lay, his big eyes blinking Sn amazement, his little forehead puck ered in a frown, his little brain evi dently working hard in an effort to ac count for the ten diminutive enigmas "With which he had been simultaneously confronted. The mystery was baffling beyond belief, and the infant Sherlock jp.olmes seemed relieved when t...

MANGELS AND BEET [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

MANGELS .AND BEET . ft A trial was made by the experts of ; the Harper Adams Agricultural Col lege to ascertain the comparative feed ing- value of mangels and sugar beet.. Four home-bred bullocks under equal I conditions were fed, in two pens side by side in the same way except as re gards roo£s. A similar Quantity of concentrated food was allowed in each case, namely 71b cake and grain per head per day, 81b straw chaff: peV head per day. The animals .were given a full allowance of roots, that is .as much as they could consume, and it was found that the mangel-fed bullocks consumed 751b per head per day, and the beet-fed bullocks were satisfied with 571b per head per day. The total gain for the twenty-eight days worked out as follows:—Beet-fed bullocks, 57I!b; .mangel-fed bullocks, 4Slb, equal to a daily gain per head of 2,041b for beet and 1.7 for mangels. The final conclusion to be; drawn from the trial is that one pound increase per liead live: weight is produced by the consumpti...

SMUT IN OATS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

Y ' * SMOT IN OATS correspondent at Yass lately '"asked the New South "Wales Depart ment of Agriculture for details of the feest treatment for oats affected by smut. One paddock of oats had a lot of smut in It last year, and it was cut for hay. Fresh clean seed was pur chased this year, but the crop had more smut in it than ever, nearly a quarter be-tig affected. The Chief Inspector, in his. reply, stated that to guard against smut in oats the seed should be treated simi larly to wheat ; that is to say, prior to sowing it should be dipped in a solu tion of bluestone (l%lb to 10 gallons of water). If sown within a day or two of dipping, and if the condition of the soil indicates a prospect of im mediate germination, no further action is necessary; if, however, the weather is dry and the oats are liable to be in the ground several weeks before ger minating, it is advisable to dip the seed, after it comes out of the bluestone, in a solution of lime water, which is made by stirring lib ...

Turnips [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

Turnips As to turnips, Professor Perkins Bays:—"We have never grown turnips for sheep to any very large extent, and this chiefly because under our condi tions of climate it is possible to grow them to advantage only when autumn Bown. They grow very rapidly, but, unf ortunately,, run up - to seed on the first approach of warm weatlier, with' the result that they are very largely wasted unless rapidly fed down at a time of year when other feed is gener ally available in large quantities. There, is no doubt that even autumn-sown: turnips supply enormous quantities of: sheep feed; it is secured, however, at a cost which is generally in excess of the expenditure involved in the rais-. ing of other types of forage crops."; Turnips have been grown for six years,; the largest area (23 acres) being .in; 1908.

Kale [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

Kale Kale has been grown for five years. Here the land is broken up dry to a depth of 6 inches, and worked fine. The seed allowance is 1 lb. per acre, mixed with half cwt. bonedust. Sow ing- took place, as with rape, in early ' autumn, and, says Professor Perkins, "if kale germinates with the April rains you cannot get a better forage for sheep." Feeding- off could be done in the spring, or could be postponed till November, and feed would then be available to February. The average monthly grazing for five years has been:— Month. Sheep. per acre. August ,. 0.04 September . • • 3:81.

Mr A. A. Farthing, M.L.A., Mr J. Shaw Stanley pointed out that there was only one director present. This would give a good idea of the in terest the directors were taking in the company, which had been managed in a most extraordinary manner. Messrs M. F. Edwards and M.
