Impure Air and Scrofula. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914
Impure Air and Scrofula. Tlie atmosphere oi all rooms should be frequently renewed by proper ven tilation. Tlie best method of accom plishing this has been ior many years a subject closely studied by sanitar ians. in rooms, and especially ia bed rooms, the lireplace should always be ief't unclosed. The windows should be pulled down from the top, and up from the bottom. All rooms, and es pecially sleeping apartments, should be well aired during the day. Impure air in bedrooms is oonsiderd by emin ent medical authorities to be one of the most potent causes of consumption and scrofula. A well-known French physician who has devoted much at tention to studies of this nature says: "It will often be found, on examina tion, that scrofulous diseases are caused by vitiated air, and it is not always necssary that there should have been a prolonged stay in such an atmosphere. Only a few hours each day is sufficient;. and a person may live in a most healthy district, pass the greater part of eac...

HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. Late or heavy suppers are a com mon cause o£ insomnia, especially tnat lorm oil it in wnich people lail into a lieavy sleep, only to awake with a start an iiour or two later and lincl themselves unable to sleep again until eany morning perhaps. Digestion comes aimont to a ueud stop uunng sleep, so tnat sullicient tuue suouid be allowed tor the last meal to be uis poseu ot beiore the hour lor retiring, xnis interval snould be two hours at least, which means that nait-paat eight is as a rule late enough tor the evening meal. In any case, tho food which is taken then ought to be ot a light nature, and not include pork, cold meat, or any other article ot diet which is slow of digestion. Conee and strong tea are unsuitable at this hour, as they tend to cause sleep lessness. Cocoa, made with water, is a much better beverage lor use with tl e evening meal or alter it.
Diplomacy. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914
Diplomacy. Sunday passed. Tuesday rolled around, and still his tall form did not loom in the vestibule when the cuckoo clock was sounding eight. Thursday he came, and the beautiful girl was burning with wrath. "So this is the way you neglect me," she hissed. "What have you to say lor yourself? Why didn't you come?" "1 couldn't," faltered the young man. "I had the dyspepsia, and the doctor told me not to come." "What! The doctor told you not to come to see me because you had dyspepsia?" "Well, he told me to keep away fro:n a!i sweets." The next moment she had him seat ed on the couch telling him ho was the nicest young man in the world. Mother: Johnny, you said you'd been to Sunday Bchool. Johnny (with a far-away look) Yes, mamma. Mother: How does it happen that your hands smell of flsh? Johnny: I carried home the Sunday school magazine and the outside page is all about Jonah and the whale. First Hen: What a ridiculously giddy creature that young Miss Dork ing is. Second Hen: Oh, she...

CLEAN THE STRAINER. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914
CLEAN THE STRAINER. Use plenty o£ salt and a fine brush when your milk-strainer becomes clogged with cream or with anything else; the cleansing will be speedy and thorough. One o£ the elements which make for happiness aiid unhappiness in life is the vigor and persistence of moods. Will means something definite. Intel lect, if i is properly used, moves to certain ends. The affections are posi tive and real. Moods, on the other hand, are .mere states of feeling— drifting fog that arises now at one point and now at another of the land scape, changing nothing, unstable, un real, driven away by a passing wind, an&lt;l yet for the moment obscurlnr the view as completely as If they hac destroyed It.

FRIGHTENING COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914
FRIGHTENING COWS. j Cream is easily frightened away. The least shock to the cow betore milking time and she shows the ef fect of the start by a reduced return. Then there is the changes of wea , tber. More is known of this, per haps, than in regard to the shocks, | After a heavy storm or a few days of j rain the farmer quickly notices the result. Most of these drawbacks can | be provided against. Then there is the treatment in the yards and pad docks. Strangers in the yards will make a difference to the yield of the most nervous of the animals. It does not seem to be made up again in sub sequent milkings. Cows should be treated gently. Keep the strangers away from the yards, especially if they are dressed in gay colors. Every time a cow snorts in fear some cream has gone. Dogs are a standing dan ger, especially if they are used to heel up the animals at milking time. The man who persists in using a dog is very foolish. Often one sees a boy on a pony, whip in hand, dog ; to help, dri...
WHEN TESTING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914
WHEN TESTING MILK. The apparatus for testing mils should be kept on a lead-covered table, as the acid used in carrying out the Gerber test has not any effect , upon lead. If any sulphuric acid gets j spilled on wood, the wood gets burn ; ed up. Always keep the stopper in | the sulphuric acid bottle, otherwise the acid will absorb the moisture from the air, and thus become weak ened.
CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914
CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. The carrot, which is not grown so 1 extensively as it might be with advan tage, resembles in composition the turnip and mangold, but it is much more concentrated than the former, as it contains from 14 to 20 per cent, of dry nutritive matter against about 10 in the turnip. It flourishes best in deep loamy soils, not too wet, or the carrots are liable to rot, and not very dry, or the growth of the root is cramped. The soil must be deeply cultivated to per mit the long-penetrating root full power of development. The grouud should be well manured. Half-rotted stable manure, applied in the autumn at the rate of twenty loads to the acre, is a good prepara tion. The requirements of the carrot for a liberal supply of plant food are so great that, in addition to the dung, it can utilise with advantage a supple mentary dressing of readily soluble chemical fertilisers. 'The application of ocwt. superphosphate, 26 per cent, soluble, and M;0\vt. of sulphate of pot ash, a...

FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914
FOB THE FABMEB. | THE COMPOST HEAP. j B. Harrison, Burringbar, Tweed! River, inquires as to the proper meth od of making a good and cheap com post heap, for manuring purposes. | The compost heap is a most valu able adjunct to a farm or orchard. The principle of this method of mak ing manure is the fermentation of easily-decomposed vegetable material in the presence of earth and lime. It is not only substances like peat, litter, straw, which form the usual basis of compost heaps that are thus decom posable, 'but almost every kind of or ganic substance, both of vegetable and animal origin, can be thus composted. Dead leaves, bush scrapings, sawdust, weeds, tops and stalks of vegetables, as well as bone and animal refuse, the operation is much slower, and sub stances like bones should be first crushed. It is also important to be sure that animal refuse so treated is not derived from a diseased source. As a general method of procedure, the, following will be found satisfac tory:—Make a ...

CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914
CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. Oue of the strongest objections to country life by those who livo in cities is that the conveniences of the farm home are few, and that the work of the liousewifo is made a much greater hardship than it is in the cities. This is, as a rule, the case. The ordinary farm home has not.t'e labor-lighten ing improvements of the city home. There is no plumbings in the house by which the luxury of the bathroom can be had, no running water, no sew age system, heating is done by stoves instead of furnaces, and the whole plan of tho house is to increase the steps of the good housewife rather than to lessen them. Now, ''this ;b not as il should be.' TUo larmcr tLnd his wife should have as many of ttie luxuries o£ life as may be possible, and it is possible to ar range the house of the farm so that many of the necessities of the city house may be had. Recently equipped farm homes are usually better equip ped than are those of several yeais ago. This is by reason that ...

IN FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914
IN FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. ! An amusing account of the horti cultural pursuits—and ineptitude—of General d'Arblay, the French emigre who became Fanny Burney's hus band, is given in an article in the "CornhUl" by Sir Henry Lucy:— The young couple began their mar ried life in apartments in a farm house on the summit of Bagden Hill. Thence they moved to a somewhat | larger cottage at Bookham. Finally, when "Camilla" proved a financial success, they built themselves a house on the outskirts of Norbury Park, known during their residence as "Camilla Cottage." From the first, HI. d'Arblay, con scious of inadequacy to bear his fair share in the wherewithal for meeting the cost of the little household, de veloped a fearsome frenzy for gar dening. Pursuit of the vocation in volved i'.im in delightfully ludicrous-, dilemmas. Writing under date April, 1794, from the cottage at Bookham, the young wife says:— "Think of our horticultural shock last week when Mrs. Bailey, our land lady, entreated hi...
THE KHEDIVE AND THE AMERICAN SALESMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914
' THE KHEDIVE AND THE 1 AMERICAN SALESMAN. I An amusing reminiscence of the present Khedive of Egypt is told by Mr. E. Alexander Powell, late consular representative of the United States at Alexandria, in his book, "The Last Frontier." Mr. Powell says he re ceived a call from the chairman of an American firm whose special line of business was the manufacture of ! agricultural and well-drilling machin ery. Mr. Powell's visitor explained that as he was passing through Egypt he thought it might be possible to ob tain an audience with the Khedive:— Agriculture and its attendant prob lems of irrigation and fertilisation constitute the sole hobby and amuse ment of tho present Khediv«. Abbas Hilmi. He is consequently a ready and liberal purchaser of all improved types of agricultural machinery, which_he puts to practical use on his '"gre.'it estates.,- The, request of my j compatriot was duly transmitted' to the grand master of ceremonies, and shortly thereafter a reply reached me that nam...
