GREEN OATS FOR FATTENING CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 17 November 1914

GREEN OATS FOR FATTENING CATTLE. Thu value of the green Algerian oat crop for fattening sheep is gaining a high place in Tasmania farming opera tions. Tho crop grows so strongly in this State that iu most districts it is ^necessary to feed the paddocks off up "till September. While benefiting the crop a good return is also secured from tho stock thus fattened. In some cases Algerian oats are sown to provide food alone, and not with any idea of after wards cutting for hay. On the Pal merston Estate, iu the Cressy district, the greater part of 200 acres was sown with Algerians for such a purpose this season. It is found that sheep are readily fattened in this manner, and the paddocks turn off a large number of fat stock. The land is also well ma nured by the sheep, and is ready for cultivation for the following crop at a very early stage. By using tho crops in this way the manager (Mr. C. R. Stewart) has been enabled to turn off, ou au average, over a fat sheop to tho acre since the b...

CLOVER SICKNESS. Pluiit diseases .ire no respecters of persons or countries. The crops of democratic. England and bureaucratic Russia, the crops of .the Czar of thou sands of acres and of the peasant's lot are alike subject to the same mala dies and weaknesses. Tho problem of the clover-sickness or clover-fatigue, as it is called on the Continent, has been prominent in Russia for some years, and an eminent agricultural scientist, Professor Koffo witch, who studied the subject with special care, has recorded tho results of his investigations in tho Russian journal for experimental agriculture. His experiments were made chiefly with pot-cultures, by which method lie was able to excludo outside influences; he used soil suffering in a high degree from clover-sickness, as well as soil in which clover had never been cultivated, and as showing that pot-culture afford ed satisfactory moans of studying the question, the professor mentions that clover-sickness soon manifested itself in the so...

THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXV. "cbtJRVGE, VAL1" Raymond Duval could scarcely be- | licvo his oyos, tthen he saw his wiio allow the ilarquis of Belgrave to kiss her hand. InvoluntarilyJio clenched . his fiat, and directly his guest had de parted, hurri'Kl upstairs to give her ttio benefit of his.opinion. On hor side, >t had scarcely beeu a case of permission, for Lord Belgravo had taken her completely by surprise; but still she was aware that she could have prevented it at the last moment, if it had not been for a wild °osire to revenge herself upon her husband. As soon as she reached her room, she flew to the washstand and plunged her hand into a basin of water-as u an ocean could have washed out the stain of these sin-steeped lips. When Duval appeared, she put on an air as if sho were only washing her hands just as usual, before retiring to rest, and he forgot to be surprised that eho had not waited to tako off her dress He came in, shut tho door, looked round to see that the ...

IMPORTANCE OF LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 17 November 1914

IMPORTANCE OF LIME. The British "Agricultural Gaz ette" writes:-"The gospel of lime is one that agricultural lecturers should continue to preach, for the most pro gressive farmers have long since real ised the indispensibility of this ma terial as being essential to fertility; there are many others who are still careless as to whether their land is de ficient in lime, and never even take the trouble to find out by small ex periments whether their practice of going on farming without lime is a good one. The virtues of lime have been demonstrated over and over again'in different pnrts of the country. Wo have an instance before us of a manurial experiment on a field of meadow grass, and before the different | plots were dressed with fertilisers the i whole of the ground was treated with I ' ground lime. The plots as a whole atood out conspicuously above the rest of the field, including one that re ceived no artificial manure, but only tho lime. In short., one small plot in a big field ...

SUSCEPTIBILITY OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 17 November 1914

SUSCEPTIBILITY OF MILK. As an instance of the influence that objectionable odours have on milk even before being drawn from the cow, the following case is reported:-A herd of milking cows were put in a field, in one part of which a calf had been buried, but not sufficiently deep. Thus the cows breathed the air infected with the mia sma of putrefaction. The milk of the cows was found to be spoilt-not only so, but the contagion seemed in somo way to pa^s to the milk of some other oows that were in contact with them in the milking shed. Other facts show ing the sensitiveness of inilk arc cited. Ji' a bowl of milk happens to bo left ueur a vessel containing a preparation of tnr, the milk will absorb tho odour, and milk should bo avoided that has been standing in the room of anyone suffering from tuberculosis.
