TURF TOPICS. (Written for the Heyfield "Herald") [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 December 1914

TURF TOPICS. (Written for ".-» Heyfield "Herald") Ballarat as a racing centre seems tr> havo lost a good deal of its form' r glory. It is one of the places to sulUw from City competition in a Turf sens*'. True, Ballarat still maintains two rair-v courses, but tho sport never reaches a high class, and the clubs would prob ably iind it a difficult matter to pull a'-ong without metropolitan support. Tho Ballarat T.C. ran a two days' meeting last week. It proved a suc cess, judged by the standard of recent years, but scarcely went near the high water mark of the good old days, when the crack gallopers of the 'flay-met to do battle at Dowling Forest. A fair honest performer in Atora won the Ballarat Cup this year. His victory under top weight clearly indi cated that the held was a weak 0110. Atora, though a useful old slave, is not to be compared with some former winners of the race. Atora is on the dam's side, a representative of the Nellie family. . Members of this tribe do not, as ...

THE PROFIT OF THE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 December 1914

THE PHOHT OF THE COW. Wo liear a great deal about tiie pru | lit from "milKuig" cows. Tlie subject : is not broad enough; it should be "Profit in keeping cows." | Many who "keep" cows place a [ value on the cow in proportion only I to the cream cheque they receive. In other words, they value her simply on the basis of the cash that the c»e»ui I brings. If the cream cheque does not pay for the labor of milking and feed ing her, then the conclusion is that she is not profitable. We do not believe I this is correct. Suppose we examine all the sources of revenue. | First, the butter-fat from the cow sold to the creamery at a fixed price is expressible in terms of cash. Second, a portion of the whole milk used to feed the calf after its birth until such time as it is able to be sup ported on skim milk and other feeds. This is worth, for feeding purposes, as much as any whole milk the cow gives. Third, on every farm there is a cer tain amount of the milk and cream used by the family, and ...

IN THE FOWL YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 December 1914

IN THE FOWL YARD. I'oultrj'inen will do well to grow as much of their poultry food as possible, and thus keep down the feed bit) dur ing the period of high prices. A food which can be easily grown anywhere, iukI which is of high food value, and much relished by the birds, is sunflower seed. The heads should be pluekcd before they are quite ripe, ami well dried to prevent moulding. Crushed, it can be added to the soft feed, and in the seed it may be added to the other grain supplied. The t'eed should be sown thinly, as when planted out in rows the plants require to be ISin. apart, and the rows from 2ft. to 3ft. Some 101b. to 201b. is required to sow an acre, and it is said that the yield, according to soil and cultivation, aver ages in England (so it "should be more here) from 9001b. to ISOOlb. per acre. Meat going up in price, and likely to .stil! rise, householders who keep poul try might do worse than hatch out a few Indian or English game, to be reai e-l only for the table. A feu...

"KEEP YOUR PECKER UP." [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 December 1914

" KEEP YOUR PECKER UP." Midway upon this passage of my life, bb Dante says, or Longfellow, or nobody in particular] here where I am I have come to the conclusion that all worry is the greatest possible mistake. [ never yet came across a prospect so dark that it couldn't be blackened by moping over it. There never yet WHS an anxiety that did not shrink at least a little if one walked honestly up to it and looked it Bquarely in the face. Matter of taste, no doubt. Lie pi one anil howl, if you will, but there is no surer way ot making all your molehills look like mountains. The man who I totters into battle, dreadfully nervous over the possibility that he may be shiiF, is already no better than carrion. Coddle your worries, and you become at once a slave or funk. Any straight forward soldier will tell you that there is probably no such thing on earth as h man without'fear. Courage is merely a matter of defying the fear that bites at one's vitals, and then doing steadily what it is one'...

RELATIONS BETWEEN THE ALLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 December 1914

RELATIONS BETWEEN" THE ALLIES. Warfare by allied nations against. h common enemy gives risii to many deli cate questions. Inevitably situations arise which result in the ;;ilieH criticis ing; each other, and blame for failure is placed on others' shoulders. So fur the military operations of the French and British armies have been carried out with ail absence of any thing in the. nature of seiious friction, but the first despatch received by the Secretary of State' for War from General Sir John French regarding the work of the British army in Frahce disclosed in guarded language the fact that a tense situation had arisen before the British army had been in the field a week. At Mous, where the British troops first came into contact with the enemy, they had to meet the determined at tack of the flower of the Get mau army, which in numbers was much Miperior to the British force. Our soldiers fought bravely, and held their own against odds o-' three to one, but in accordance with the pla...

A CHRISTMAS REVERIE. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 December 1914

A CHRISTMAS REVERIE. (By Silas Snell.) Christmas is coming witli tardy foot steps, and warning uh with recollections of the past and anticipations of the future. The best part is the recollec tion of the days of childhood, when we were happy kids, and the sensmus joy of living wag sufficient joy in itself when a ChristmaB pudding was joy un measured, the finding of a silver coin in the same was a golden era; when we were never tired of games or sick ened of cakes; when our weary bodies were impervious to climate and fatigue : when ignorance was our safeguard against care, and the traces of original sin, hard work and worry had not begun to we-ive their warp and woof in our lives. Those of us who have not .carried forward to after years the sim plicities of childhood will derive some pleasure in looking back upon the days when we resembled nothing so much as puppies or kittens. - Now, Christmas means to most of us a brief cessation from work, the re uniting of families, and the takin...

THE WAR BUDGET. FACING THE COST. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 December 1914

THE WAR BUDGET. FACING THE COST. Thursday last was an evening which will live in the history of the Common we«Ub Parliament. Mr Fisher read a Budget statement which showed esti mated expenditure for the current financial venr of ;£37,5S3.715, estimated revenue «>f 1/24,495,i01. In other words the Treasurer anticipate1) a defi ciency of ovm* £13,000,000. But in addition to outlining expenditure on a Kcale hitherto undreamt uf in Australia, Mr Fisher l id on the table of the House the schedule of the uew Tariff. It, has to he admitted, all things con sidered, we in A us ralia are escaping wonderfully lightly. The orgaug which champion city interests, which insist on a policy which cieates slums and which leaves vast areas of fertile soil unpeopled, were for revenue duties on tea and kerosene, the only luxuries of which the bushinan knows anything. Those duties are not to he imposed. Beer, spirits, tobacco are to bear heavier imposts; the land tax on very large estates is to be incr...

PIG FEEDING EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 December 1914

PIG FEEDING EXPERIMENTS. At the present time a series of ex periinouts are being carried out to test not only the s\stein of feeding tlk meal and water in separate troughs, but also the cooking and scalding ol" the meal. The experiments are being carrieu out at Holmes Farm in coneetion with Kilmarnock Dairy School, Ayrshire. Forty eight pigs were divided into! three lots on 2nd June. The meal consists of three-sixths maize meal, two sixths thirds and one-sixth barley nieai and whey. One lot of 1(5 pgs are being fed with the meal in a dry state; these pigs have made an average gain per week of o.51b, at a cost of 2d per lb.

SULPHURING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 December 1914

SULPHURING POTATOES. it iius been i'ouiid that by roJing the tubers in powdered sulphur before planting potatoes infested with, scab, the danger of disease is diminished. Trials have been made to te6t the ef fect of applying the sulphur to the soil at the time of planting, and the results have proved to be very satisfactory. Nut only were the tubers almost free from scab, but the crop was more abundant. Did the increased crop come from the freedom from disease, or did the sulphur exercise a direct uianurial effect on the plants? To tost this question, a set of experiments . - i made at *n agricultural sta tion m England. Applications of the fertilisers suitable to the crop were made to diffemt lots-namely 4.0wt of superphosphate, 2cwt of sulphate of potash, and ^cwt of nitrate of soda, and to the plots were added respective ly 2cwt and 4cwt of powdered' sulphui per acre. All the plots to which sul phur had been applied showed an in crease, and the complete manure plot that ruceivod ...
