FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 10 January 1914

FATTENING POULTRY. The beat and, at the same time, most economical method oi lattening all kinds of poultry is to Keep them ui coimuement lor a short time before they are required for table. A good deal of judgment, liowe.ver, has to be exercised in deciding the length ot time nns coulinement is to last, lor it overdone, oven in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose llesh and go back in condition. Strange as it may seem, once this begins, no jmount of feeding will restore either their weight or condition till alter they have regained their liberty again. l''or this reason the poultry must be confined for too long a period before they are required.

FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 10 January 1914

FOR THE PARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. If all poultry houses of the closed in typo nad an end or one Bide of them knocked out, disease would dim inish by one-half, and the profits from the birds compelled to roost in them would, probably,- be doubled. It is impossible to conceive anything more insanitary and conducive to disease than the ordinary type of l'owlliouso one sees in the country. It is cramp ed, dark and .without any ventilation, except the many draughty cracks. It is little wonder that going from the foetid atmosphere into oLten an un sheltered yard the birds contract colds,~ and soon become a prey to dis-; ease. It were l'ar better to let. the hens roost in trees. The sleeping J quarters of fowls should be merely draught-proof shelters from extremes ol' weather and, if wjlitor eggs be de-1 sired, they should liave dry scratch ing quartet's for bad weather. Always have your poultry houses open to the north.

SCALY LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 10 January 1914

SCALY LEGS. Scaly legs are contagious (as are most diseases of poultry), and can be cured by washing with carbolic soap and hot water, painting legs with kerosene or wood preserving oil oc casionally. This unsightly enlarge ment of the leg is caused by a para site (sarcoptes mutans), and is close ly associated with uncleanliness and over-crowded runs.

The Heart of a Girl. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 10 January 1914

The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III.—Continued. Hilary Stanmore's injuries were not as serious as at first supposed. For the time ibeing that was all which mat tered to Queenic. Shock had stunned her; but she told herself that present ly, when she could think more clear ly, when her still terrible suspense as to Hilary's condition was relieved, this unreal charge against him must dis solve like an ugly nightmare at wak ing.". Her suffering and her suspense, only partially allayed by what the pa per iold her, were relative to the man himself. If it were possible, she would travel to Hasted this night. Home—yes! She must go home first to gei money for the railway fare and put together a few things. She was hurrying on again, spurred into such feverish haste by her thoughts that Beryl had trouble to keep pace with her. In Oxford-street she 'beckoned a taxi-cab. It was the latest thi...

SMOKING WHILE MILKING. Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. If any acci dent occurs by which a pail-full or partly full of milk becomes dirty, do not try to remedy this by straining, but reject all this milk, and rinse the pail. • We remember one day, when on a visit, seeing a milking hand smoking a pipe. . Suddenly, he spoke to the cow, and the pipe fell from the man's mouth into the bucket. He made one grab into the milk-bucket, put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking! Then, what about the ash from ajipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the man or boy who smokes while milking. Bad Health. Oue of the most general causes of bad health is the inefficient action of the kidneys and the liver. It is the function of the kidneys and liver to deal 'with certain waste poisons which are 'being continuously manufactured in our bodies, and, when the kidneys and liver are inactive or diseased, these waste poisons remain in the sys tem, and cause us...

IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 10 January 1914

IRON FOR FOWLS. Iron is present in the fowl's body; pare ol tins iron is in tin organiseu torm in tiie red corpuscles of tne blood. "The total amount ol! iron is small, but nevertheless, it is ol greaL importance, and a deficiency re sults in anaemia. One frequently finds that eggs laid by insuuiciently fed fowls have pale yolks. The coloring of the yoik is due to pigments, and, possibly, to the piiosphonpine termed leciLhin. Iron, in an organised form, is found in the ash of tne egg. Vegetable foods, es pecially clover and lucerne, are rich in minerals, and their use results in nehiy-oolored yolks. Anaemic fowls may bo easily treated by administer ing to each live drops of perchlorido of iron in a teaspoon of well-sweeten ed milk. This is a very cheap tonic, and is better in many ways than the ordinary sulphate of iron (copperas).

Mutual Secrets. "1 didn't want to come here in the first place," confided the first guest at the expensive ..hotel in a well-known winter holiday resort on the South Coast. "No more did I," replied the second; "hut my wife insisted on my coming." "So did mine," said the first.

CARE OF CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 10 January 1914

CARE OF CREAM. For the factory manger to turn out a first-grade butter he requires the help of the farmer. The cream must be delivered in the best order pos sible. Cleanliness in the dairy is an essential condition. Cream cans are returned washed, but it is very neces sary that they should be thoroughly cleansed and scalded again at the farm before use. For segarating, a special room should be provided, at least 30 yards to windward of the milking shed, have a concrete floor, be provided with good drainage, well ventilated, and have a good supply of water. The milk should be separated as soon as possible, and while the animal heat is in the milk. The cream should at once be cooled to the lowest possible temperature; and, as the water required is small, this should present no serious difficulty. Under no circumstances should cream from one skimming be mixed with cream from another skimming unless it has first been well cooled. The most unsatisfactory of all suppliers is the man who p...
