NEWSPAPERS AND NEWSPAPER MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 December 1914

NEWSPAPERS AND NEWS PAPER MEN. (By Silas Snell). I,was asked the other day by a repre sentative of the local PresB-a hungry, Bad eyed specimen of humanity, who j looked as if he had been going through a long succession of self-denial weeks to write an article for the next issue, as he was, as usual, short of "copy." Well, now I've got a task I'll set about it, and take for my subject the rather personal one of "Newspapers and Newspaper Men." First, take the newspaper mail as a man merely. What a peculiar speci men he is. What a combination of vices and virtues so appositively dis played. To parody Hamlet : "What a piece of work is a precBman! How infinite in ignorance. In action how like a machine ; in form an I moving how express and erratic." A pressman as generally known is a sad-looking in dividual with a paper to till up and publish every week, or twice a week, as the case may be, and this is supposed to be never off his mind, He dreams about advertisements and job printing at ...

TENNIS. HEYFIELD v. TOONGABBIE. A team of tennis players from Hey field visited Toongabbie on Saturday, and were rather badly beaten. After making due allowances for the disad vantage the visitors were placed at in playing on a rather tricky earthen court, it is admitted the home team was just a little bit too good.

Mr O'Hare and Mrs Humphrey beat Mr Marshall and Miss Wickham, 10-3 Messrs Nicolson and Ferguson beat Messrs Fitzpatrick and Henderson, 10-8.

NO BEES NO FRUIT CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 December 1914

KO BEES NO FRUIT CROP.. I'lio importance of bees to tlie orch ardist is summed up by an American authority as follows : 1. All tests wherever 'made." ajid ail general observations, agree that many varieties of apples, peaciies> pears, plums, sweet cherries and grapes art; unable to set a crop of fruit when limi ted to their own pollen. 2. Some varieites of the above nam ed fruits are particularly self-fertile, and a few are apparently whole self i'ertile, though the degree of fertility varies - between rather wide limits, de pending upon location, season, vigor of trees, etc.. 3. AU investigators agree that, as a general rule, the fruit resulting from -crossing, even in self-fertile varieties is larger and better developed than tlie self-fertile fruit. This is explained by saying that foreign pollen furnished a grea ter stimulus to growth because it is more acceptable to the pistil, and not because it transmits size, character of the variety from which it came, -i., . 4. xill evi...

THE EFFECTS OF SULPHUR ON PLANT GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 December 1914

THE EFFECTS OF SULPHUR ON PLANT GROWTH. Sulphur is commonly used to pro tect vines from odium, and it has long been noticed - that, wlieu thus used, it lias a stimulating effect on the growth of the vines.- I'iie experiments of several French investigators have now, according to the "Scientific American" made clear how. this effect is brought about. Sulphur does'not act directly - as a plant food, but breaks down com plex nitrogenous substances in the soil to/the ammonia form.- Hence its ac tion is dependent upon the presence and amount of organic in the soil. Thus Yermord. and Dan tony treated | wheat aud beans, grown in pots, with j sulphur. When nitrogen was also ap plied 111 the form of nitrates, the ad dition of sulphur led to no increase in yield, but when the same quantity of nitrogen was applied in an organic form (dried blood), an increase of 30 per cent, was noted for wheat, and 60 per cent, for beans The most recent and conclusive experiments on the sub ject are those of ...

LIMING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 December 1914

LIMING THE LAND. ?(Written specially for the "Farmer's Gazette" by J.. H. lief shauge.) . Should a liandtul of damp, soil be squeezed in the-hand, and a few drops of hydrochloric acid be dropped on it, small gas bubbles will be seen to form where the acid fell, if the soil has a sufficiency of lime in it. It may be as sumed that the soil is deficient in lime i if no effervescence takes place. Many j sandy and many clayey soils exist winch j have less than 1 per cent of lime in ; them. ' iich lands respond in increas ? ed productivity when lime is applied I to them. j With the exception of the Mallee and i Wimmera soils, most of the soils of .Victoria require liming. As the use of I lime increases the producing power ol j the soil, it would be a wise policy for ' our Government to follow in the steps | of .New Zealand by carrying lime on the j railways for agricultural purposes free ! of cost.

TURF TOPICS. (Written for " - Heyfield "Herald") Fortunately the threatened clash be tween Aspendaie and .Richmond on Saturday was averted.

SUBSTITUTES FOR POTASH. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 December 1914

SL'JSTiTUTES FOR POTASH. JPotash manures are required in course of time on all land where there is anything like intensive culture. In England the bulk of such manures were hitherto imported from Germany, and one result of the war has been to throw the country largely upon its own limi ted resources. -Most soils contain a potash in some proportion, but many of them, especially those of a liglit texture, cannot bo relied upon for a full crop, without a dressing of a pot ash manure. . The question is-how is it to be obtained? . In the dilema, the British Board of Agriculture has come along and (remarks the "Field") has suggested the gathering together and burning of refuse wood, weeds, and other waste material, the ashes to be conserved for application in the spring to such land and crops as most ijeed potash. Those who have access to the sea, have a readier means or making. good' the deiicieney. Seaweed is a valuable source of-potash, as well as a general health-giver. Many al ready ...

- -THE" MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXX. COJNDlTl'JiNb 01'' HEAOIS. It wa» a lonely,-miserable day, for Ida Duval did not appear either for luncheon or dinner, and the hours dragged by so slowly that it seemed as it bedtime would never come. There was no telegram from Honey ,combe .Ledge, so she. was ignorant ot the result of the search, and every bell that rang reminded her of the friend who would nevei' come again. She tried to read,, but her thoughts wandered away from the book; she sat' down to play, and poured out her heart in such doleful music that she burst into tears and deserted - the music stool. When ten o'clock struck, she looked at the clock and longed to go to bed, but she stayed up because she was so anxious to see her husband, and hear his news. He might have had some consideration for her anxiety. It was just like the generality of husbands, 'l'hey were all.selfish, all prone to be utterly engrossed with their own pur suits, with no thought for the lonely wives they le...
