WAX-MOTHS IN THE HIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 July 1908

WAX-MOTHS IN THE HIVES. In box hive -and straw skep days', (writes an apiarist In the "Michigan j Farmer") wax moths were much feared. \ They were blamed for destroying whole j colonies of bees. Since the advent of] movable.-frame hives, however, it Isj known that wax moths cannot destroy a« colony of bees, but that they come.in as! a secondary cause. j : A colony, in one way or another, loses! its queen; the bees at once set about to! rear another, but'she 1s lost in mating.* Such colony is then hopelessly queenlcss,; and its numerical strength Is slowly re-| duced until there are so few bceS that; wax moths can lay their eggs, unhlnd-i ered by the bees, upon the,combs. By; the time the larvae resulting from these* eggs have eaten-destroyed-a large, part of the comb In the hive, the would be bee-keeper notices.that very few, if any, bees are coming and going from the1 hive. After examining the hive he finds: a lot of wax-moth-larvae infested comb'; and concludes that the wax moths ...

THE COST OF SPEED ON THE ATLANTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 July 1908

THE COST OF SPEED ON THE ATLANTIC. The cost of speed on the Atlantic is shown in "Engineering," where full de tails are given of the performance o£ the Cunard liner Lusltania, as prepared . by Mr Thomas Bell, of the famous Clyde firm which built her-Messrs. John Brown and Co., Limited. This cost Is due more to the great power required for the speed than to any lack of effi ciency In the turbine machinery, as the coal consumption per horse-power per hour is as low as 1.431b. It Is found that the coai for the voyage of 3100 nau tical miles would only be 2980 tons were the speed 15% knots, or 3670 tons for 21 knots; but 25 knots requires 5390. An important factor again Is the largo quantity of hot water used for passen ger purposes-in baths, hand-basins, galleys, ctc. This Increases the coal consumption at 25-knot speed to G490 tons. The consumption for full speed works out to 111b. per 100 nautical miles ^per ton of displacement.

TESTING DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 July 1908

TESTING DAIRY COWS. A United States agricultural "Bul lotin" suggests that the fat test may be mado nt frequent intervals, say, once a week. . Another bulletin advises -that a composito test bo mado by taking a small sample of milk each day, mixing these and testing the mixture at the end of the week. Sincc tho milk given in tho morning usually differs somewhat from that given at night, it is more reliable to toko samples of both morning's and night's milk for test-: ing. By keeping a continuous re cord of the weight of milk produced and'making a composite test of tho milk for one week in each month a very closo estimate of the milk and butter production of tho cow will bo secured. The approximate amount of butter can be calculated by adding one-sixth to the butter fat, which is the rule usually followed by tho ex periment station. The amount of labor involved in keeping this record when once fitted for it is small, and from a pecuniary point of view it is well worth the undertaking...

THE BEEKEEPER. PROPOLIS GATHERERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 July 1908

THE BEEKEEPER. PROPOLIS GATHERERS. Propolis (writes an American bee keeper) is a glue-like substance gatheied from the buds of certain kinds of trees by the bees for -tho purpose* of sealing cracks and crevices. A little of it is not un'eslrabb in a hive. It holds the frames together, so that they will not flop about when the hive Is being carried. "When, how ever, the bee3 so gluo .frames together that tho frames break ' when being re moved, one longs for a strain or bec3 that gather little propolis. There is a difference, too, between the races and between individual colonies ©f a race as to the amount of propolis gathered. Bees of the Carniolan*race gather less propolis than those df any other. This makes them especially desirable for the production of comb honey.' But they have not become popular on account of their great swarming propensity. "When-' ever a colony of Italian bees shows an> extraordinary inclination to gather pro polls the queen should be replaced by: one rear...

VALUE OF CATCH CROPS. HOW TO GROW THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 July 1908

VALUE OF CATCH CROPS. HOW TO GROW THEM. Tho growing of catch crops formed the subject of discussion at a recent meet ing of farmers at Crystal Brook, one of the most northerly districts of South Australia* The farmer selected to open the proceedings submitted for criticism the position that, owing to the abun dance of feed at one period of the year, and the great scarcity in another period, the land was generally understocked, and a lacge portion of the feed in the abundant period was wasted. The diffi culty, therefore, was that if a farmer kept enough stock to prevent this waste, he could not carry this same stock over the period of scarcity. If he could not do this, there must be great loss, either by starvation, or by selling out at a sacrifice. To meet this difficulty, ex periments had been made in securing what are called "catch crops." These nxperlments had met with a large jfmount of success, so that the old rule. t6at the carrying capacity of a farm is just as many head as c...

THE VINEYARD. COMBATING PHYLLOXERA. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 July 1908

THE VINEYARD. COMBATING FHYIXOXEItA. . Some time ago Professor Iiucien Daniel, of tho University of Ronncs, contributed an article to the London "Times" with regard to phylloxera in the. European vineyards. It contained statements which the New South Wales Minister of Agriculture considered should bo contradicted. Ho called for an official report on the subject, and tho following reply to Professor Luclcn Daniel's article has been made by Pro fessor Blunno, tho New South Wales viticultural expert: "Statements are published now and again with reference to the practice of reconstructing vineyards on phylloxera resistant stocks to obviate tho ravages that phylloxera makes among vines. Eventually In Europe someone stands up and condemns the practice with an emphasis generally in an inverse ratio to his prestige among those scientists who have devoted their life and energy to a question which in tfie vinegrowing countries of the world is national, and affects millions of people and of mo...

Too Much Discipline. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 July 1908

Too Much Discipline. The story of how Tommy Atkins was outwitted on the "field of battle" in South Africa-that is to say, the foot ball field-is too good to bo lost. It was the -final of the cup, and 11 miners on the one sido and a rcgimon j tal team on tho other worn striving I might and main in a mining district. | At last tho miners scored a lucky goal ! and so tho goal stood on tho strike of ; "time," when tho soldiers, in a last despairing eflort, * descended with a mighty rush upon tho opposing cus todian. Never did there appear to be a greater certainty than tho fall of that goal. . But a strango thing happened. As though by preconceived arrangement, the crowd, accompanied by an impro vised band, began to sing the National Anthem. Instinctively every "Tommy" stood to "Attention"-and tho goal was saved 1

THE DAIRY. WATER IN BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 July 1908

THE DAIRY. WATER IN BUTTER. The American standard (writes tho "Washington Star"), allowing 16 per ccnt, water In butter seems to have a dangerous tendency in Its practical operations. The largo creamcries of the West, it is alleged, have contrived a new churning process for butter, which will mix it with whey or water, and thus mix in about 2 per cent, additional water, making the per cent up to tho very limit that the law allows. Such butter, while coming under the standard, is not a first-class material. The conditions seem to be very much like those prevailing In some of the- large milk markets where the State standard requires a fixed per cent of.butter fat. The tendency at the milk receiving stations Is to take tho milk of varying standards, mix It and ,sklm off enough cream to reduce It to exactly the stand ard required by law. Such practices should be prevented by law. It Is a fraud in butter to add moro than the natural per cent of water and a fraud in milk to take away any ...

The Gift of the Cab. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 July 1908

The Gift of the Cab. Ministers aro chosen, not becauso they are known to have been specially trained for administration, but becauso (writes Mr. Michael MacDonagh in the "Daily Mail") in the conflict of tongues between parties, ever raging and ever unsettled, they have proved themselves possessed of gifts of speech, which on able them to explain the provisions of a Bill, or to vindicate the action of their Department to the House of Commons. They discover themselves to the house by their oratorical ability; while their tongue-tied colcagues, however capable otherwise, remain un-noticed and un known on the back benches. An experienced busines man, trained in the transaction of affairs, but with* out the gift of exposition, is occasional ly to bo found on the Treasury Bench. He may lend weight and solidity to a Government. But ho never attains to any distinction or prominence in the public eye. Not for him aro the highest and most coveted of political places.

Too Compatible. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 July 1908

Too Compatible. Compatibility is evidently as danger ous as the incompatibility of tempera ment plea on winch so many divorces ure granted. The story is told of a girl who, after listening to a young man's proposal, answered "No, James I cannot marry you." James looked, frightened, hurt, dis pleased. "Why not?" ho asked. "There is too much compatibility of 'temperament about us, James," said the girl, lier lip curling with faint scorn. "Too much compatibility? But isn't that a good thing?" asked the puzzled young man. '.'Not always," she answered. "For instance, judging from the size of your income, if wq wore married, I should undoubtedly insist, from motives of economy, on dispensing with n servant and doing my own Jiousework, and in your compatibility, James, you would undoubtedly let mo do it."
