HARROWING GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915
HARROWING GRAIN. The following experience has been gained from the field trials on the State demonstration farms during the past eight seasons.' Grain may be harrowed to good- ad vantage after it is four to six inches high, providing the soil is firm, tho har row light and the day warm, dry arid the sun shining brightly. Wheat and oats may be harrowed to good advantage just before they come up. If barley or flax are harrowed at any time after they are up, great injury to tho crop will result. Wheat and oats are tho small grain crops that can be harrowed to best advantage, but great injury may result if the ground is harrowed' dur ing cold, damp weather, when tho dew is 011 the young plants when they are less than four inches high, when tho soil . is loose, when too heavy a harrow is used or when a heavy, dashiug rain falls within twenty-four hours after the harrowing is done. Experience on tho demonstration farms indicates that the best time to harrow is just when it is beginning to...
ECONOMIC PORK PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915
ECONOMIC PORK PRODUCTION. To enable our readers to make the most ot their skim milk, we reproduce here ;in article, published by us somo time back, which gives, in our opinion, the most valuable information over pub lished iu reference to the economic pro duction of pork. The article is given below, and we trust it will be of the fullest interest to tliu many new subscribers who have sent us their names since it first appeared, as well as a reminder to those who read it when it;was originally printed in our columns. '*.A short time ago Mr. John Harris, of the Calne baeon curing firm, undertook some pig-fceding experiments on behalf of the "Wiltshire County Couneil. Pour styes were made to hold forty pigs, which were fed thrico daily.

TXe potatoes were boiled and the foods wo.t not given them in a sloppy condition. Six hu...
SHELLS THAT SUFFOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915
SHELLS THAT SUFFOCATE. According to the Ceylon correspond ent of the British Umpire Review the Germans may expect unpleasant shocks from the recent invention of an English scientist, namely, Vrofcssor Herdman, of L/iverpool, who lately passed through Colombo, homeward bound from Aus tralia, with Sir Oliver Lodge and others who had been attending the British Asociation meetings. The pro fessor, it seems, has devised a new kind of explosive shell, which throws out on bursting, a nauseating gas, completely . disabling* all persons within a wide area. Of course, the professor is offering his invention to the British Governpient for use against the enemy, who may or may not, find it more formidable than their own "Jack Johnsons."

WINTER EGG PRODUCTION. SOME IMPORTANT DETAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915
WINTER EGG PRODUCTION. SOME IMPORTANT MTA1LS. i do not think (writes "Poultry Farmer'-) any branch of poultry-keep ing yields so excellent a profit as the production of winter eggs. A fact which many do uot seem fully to real ise is that a hen which lays, say, a hundred eggs may be uiuch more pro fitable than one which lays, aay, a hun dred and eighty. Everything depends j on the time when the eggs are laid. I It is far better to secure a hundred j eggs when they are selling.at five for :i shilling than to obtain a hundred :uid eighty when they aro worth no more than fourteen or sixteen a shil ling. Tho general-purpose breeds, par ticularly the ^-Orpington, Wyandotte, and I'lymouth Rock, are our best win ter layers. The laying or non-sitting varieties produce ithe bulk of their eggs during the spring and summer, when eggs are very plentiful and real ise but a low price. Fairly early hatched pullets of the goneral-purpose type should therefore be selected, as these are the most likel...

USE OF SALT IN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915
USE OF SALT IN AGRICULTURE. Tlie use of salt for manurial purposes is a com in 011 practice in many parts of the British Isles. Only a few crops, however, derive benefit from its ap plication. The manurial value of com mon salt is an indirect one. AVhen ap plied to the soil,, the sodium liberates and sets free more available potash from the large stock of insoluble pot ash compounds generally contained in coast soils. In this respect, salt forms a very good adjunct to other manures for all those crops requiring large supplies of potash. Its application to soils rich in some cases replace the use of pot ash manures. The use of common salt as a manure is associated with the man uring of mangels perhaps more than with any other crop. Its value in this respect was formerly generally ascribed to the fact that the wild species of the now cultivated mangel was a marine plant, and thus accustomed to the habit of growing in a salty environment. As mangel is a potash-loving plant, the true ex...

THE MAIZE-PRODUCING INDUSTRY IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915
THE MAIZE-PRODUCING INDUS TRY IN VICTORIA. Br Temple A. J. Smith, Chief Field Officer, in "Journal of Agriculture." The production of maize for grain in Victoria has not developed as fast as might have been expected, the area eul-i tivated being small when compared with the suitable land available in various! parts of the State for such purposes. The rich flats on either side of the num erous rivers and creeks north and South of the Main Dividing Range lend them selves as specially valuable to maize growing, partly owing to the class of soil provided and also to the climatic conditions prevailing; the rainfall is sufficient and the summer season long enough and hot enough to ripen the crop. "Where temporary dry spells are experienced, water for irrigation is gen erally available; this factor alone gives promise of a greatly extended area being cultivated when fuller advantage is taken of the permanent water supply. Already, in a small way, in more or less isolated cases, the crop ha...

Tooher, and Constable Cumming. Constable Hill, who is relieving Senior Constable Tennant, prosecuted, but did not press the charge. Defendant was given a very good character and the trouble was the outcome of a jollification. The bench dismissed the charge on de fendant contributing something to the hospital. He donated 10s. J. Rattray was granted a collectors license.
DISINFECTANT FOR POULTRY HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915
DISINFECTANT FOR POULTRY HOUSES. Ju a clean five-gallon ston'e crook .pour quarts of raw linseed oil. Then dissolve one to six ounces commercial -lye in just enough water to dissolve "it; half a pint is usually sufficient. Allow the lye solution to stand a few hours until cold.. Then pour it very slowly .constantly stirring, in the crook of oil. Take four or live minutes in adding the lye solution to the oil. Uon . tinue stirring,for 20 to 30 minutes un til a smooth, thick, soft soap is formed. Then stir in S%' quarts commercial cre sol, which will dilute and blend with the soap to form a clear, red-brown liquid. A o per cent, mixture of the above stock solution is strong enough for all ordinary disinfection, as cresol is extremely powerful in its action. When diluted in this way a thin, milky liquid results, which can be applied with a bush or a spray pump. The latter is best, because with it the dis infectant can bo forced into every crack and eroviee, thus insuring a perfect job....

DON'T WASTE MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915
DON'T WASTE MANURE. You need every pound oil manure you can got. No matter how rich you think your farm is, you cannot afford to be careless about this matter.. If .your land is already too rich to raise small grain put in crops that can use fertility. Spread it on the pastures and meadows. You can't grow too much grass. Nor can you grow too .much maize-too much per acre,' I mean. ' ^ Many do not appreciate the value of oat straw and- shredder fodder as a means of saving manure and making humus. 1 Instead of burning the stacks of straw, or allowing them to rot, feed all you can and use the rest for bed ding. Bed heavily, so as to absorb all; the liquids. Spread this thinly over the fields by means of a spreader, used daily if enough manure is made to pay hitching up, and you have your fertility out where it will go into the soil , in? stead of firing in the pile or washing away with the rains. Most soil needs humus. In fact, much of the trouble is the lack of humus more than the lac...

PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. TELEPHONE NO. 8. FRIDAY, MAY 21st, 1915. THE cost of the great war will have to be paid and when the blessings of peace return again to a war worn and shell shattered world, there will be a tremendous burden of debt to be liquidated. Here in Australia we have a mul tiplicity of favorable opportunities and resources that do not exist in any part of the British Empire, and it is due to us to make the very best use of these. The land is fertile and will grow anything. Every acre must be pressed into production, blades of grass and ears of wheat, oats and corn must be multiplied, many times over. The present crisis in sugar again directs attention to the possibili ties for a beet sugar factory in the neighborhood of Wonthaggi. Some time ago Mr T. Mesley of the. Dalyston Agricultural Society men tioned this matter before the society and it should not be lost sight of. The country round about is well adapted for the growth of beet.
