THE FARM. VALUE OF SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914
THE FARM. VALUE OF S7LAGE. The advantages of silage reeding (writes an oversea paper) might be summed up as follows : Silage keeps I young stock thrifty and growing all j winter. It'enables the cow to pro-] duce milk and butter-fat more econo mically. It increases the proportion of milk and butter-fat. Silage is more easily handled than dry fodder. The silo maV.cs use of the cornstalks which would otherwise not be eaten and preserves them in a palatable form. More stock can be kept on a given number of acres. It is the most economical method of supplying feed for the stock during the hot, dry periods of summer when the pastures lire 7short.-iTSe7.:Hj;ld Is In gootl ron-( dition for autumn cultivation after the corn has been removed. Silage docs not deteriorate in palatability as does corn stored later in the spring.

CHAPTER XXX. ? IN THREE DAYS. " It was about two o'clock of tbe afternoon, and Dick, having lunched heartily, had settled himself for his usual siesta in tbe big arm-chair. The traces ol his illness had almost! vanished ; lie looked well, handsome, and ruddy, as he lounged there in a suit of cool flannels, with a cigar in bis mouth and a book open In one hand. Dut ho bad tried vainly to in terest himsolf in the volume-it was an Knglish novel only a fow months old. And, strange- to say, he did not feci in the least drowsy. As a matter of fact, he was wor ried. He felt a vague sense of impen ding danger, a dread and restless ness that he could not analyze. By the doctor's 'command he had not left the house that morning for his cus tomary walk, nor bad be received a promised visit from Captain Vol bortli. And at intervals, since an early hour of the day, distant clam our and commotion had broken out in the town. These mysterious things worried Dick, occupying his mind to the exclusion ...
EVERY WIFE NEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914
r EVERY WIFE NEEDS. .ijm a i^uoil temper, a cheerful ? .lid a knowledge of how ?js i!mi should be treated, o nt'i ds a capability of looking on the bright side of life, and refusing to be worried by sr-.iill things. She needs a secure grasp of such subjects as are interesting to men, and should not be above studying even politics In order to understand should her husband speak of them. She needs a sympathetic nature in order that, should sorrow fall upon them, she may be able to give comfort to her husband. She needs to understand something of sick nursing; a wife with no notion of what to do in cases of illnuss Is but a useless thing. She needs considerable tact and pa tience-the one to enable her to know when to remain silent, and vice versa, and the other to put up with him when his temper Is ruffled.

CROMWELL'S IDEA OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914
CROMWELL'S IDEA OF WAR. Oliver Cromwell was a general capa ble not only of appreciating tlie small er details of war, but also of forming such plans as in their execution should imply not merely the momentary con fusion of a beaten enemy, but also the Iniliction of blows so heavy and so Hell directed that none could avoid them, while they destroyed those on whom they fell. To Cromwell war was no light evil, of which the misery miEbt be remit ted or i!. licted at the will of the gen eral. k was, on the contrary, the set urge of God entrusted, by Him to righteous hands for the punishment oi sinners, ami thus in him wo Ilud none of that mistaken philanthropy, of which, in war, the result is the inflic tion of suTTering on a multitude of in nocent heads. By the terror of his unsparing arm. ho spared himself the need to strike, with the result that his soldiers, whosu name became a word oi fear, both shed and lost less blood when one.: that fear had been established. To prove the truth o...

CHAPTER XXXI. THRILLING . NEWS. It was Lucille >vho appeared, and Dick thought 'that lie had never seen her look BO dazzllngjy beautiful. A spot of unwonted colour glowed on each check, a scarlet flower was pin ned In her dark hair, and a black lace mantilla was thrown loosely over her shoulders. Closing the door softly behind her, she glided into the room. "You !" Dick' gasped. "I thought X should never see you again. I was I afraid I had offended you, Lu" "It was foolish to thtak that.

Agricultural Notes and Queries. (BY GLEANBR.) I MONEY IN PIG RAISING. There is hopeful promiuo of tho ex pansion of ill livo stock industries in Australia. In nono is bhore a bettor outlook, BO fur us the smn.ll Innd owiior is concorned, than in pig raising. This industry, whether ns an adjunct to genornl farming, dairying or fruib growing, ought to receive much more attention than hits been puid to it lb is essentially an industry for small holdings. Thera is nn attractive proQt in it to-day, nnd there is every indica.. tion that) howover rapidly tho industry may expand, the business will con tinue to afford attractive profits to those who givo it proper attention. Tn 1901, there were 350,000 pigs in Victoria and last your only 240,000, notwithstanding that population has increased in tho intorval, and, wliot is mora important still, that the con sumption of pig products per head of population has increased. The rising prices for beef and mutton will un questionably add to tho dema...

MERITS OF SUBSOILING. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914
MERITS OF SUBSOILING. I have to thank Mr F J Hasse, of Gymbowen, for interesting comments on the treatment of claysoils, having a closely packed layer of clay, or as io is popularly called ?' hard pan " a few fnches below the surface. This is a common defect) in claysoils. A contributing factor in its formation is ploughing the landalways at the same depth. The sole of the plough thus compacts the bottom of the furrow BO tightly dint it is rendered almost im pervious to wator and to air. So the water, filling ns lain, does Hob pajB freely thiough tho compacted layer, and in dry periods moisture below tho layer does ascuud to the surface area, the top Uycr of soil becomes water* logged after heavy rains, aud during a diy spoil loses its moisture very rapidly by evnporation from tlio surface The lend ellect of a waterlogged soil on plant growth is fully realised, when it is borne in mind that plant roots are composed of living material, and in order to fulfil their fui.ction of absorb...
