SMOKING WHILE MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914

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 th^ 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 a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the man or boy who smokes while milking.

FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914

FATTENING POULTRY. The best and, at the same time, most economical method of fattening all kinds of poultry is to keep them in confinement for a short time before they are required1 for table. A good deal of judgment, however, has to be exercised in deciding the length of time this confinement is to last, for if overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose flesh and go back in condition. Strange as it may seem, once this begins, no amount of feeding will restore either their weight or condition till after they have regained their liberty again. For this reason the poultry must be confined for too long a period before they are required.

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? Why, asks an expert, do we import citrus fruit from Italy? We have conditions here favorable to the growing of first class fruit. We can produce citrus fruit here equal to what we receive from Italy, if pro per cultural methods are practised. The soil is here, and the climatic condition. The Italian fruit has a thin skin, the correct flavor, and its keeping quality is world-renowned. Yet some of our locally-produced oran ges will compare favorably with theirs, but to oust the imported ar ticles growers should endeavor to produce more of this class. The thin skinned varieties are just as easily grown as the inferior types, and, as far a3 flavor is concerned, many of our up-to-date growers produce fruit every bit as good as that imported— better in fact, but the drawback is that we do not get enough, nor does it always combine with the commer cially-essential thin skin.

PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914

PIGS FOR BACON. Certain modifications in the meth ods of killing and preparing pigs for j bacon have been necessary in recent ,• years to meet the demands of the ' .consumer and curer. Among these has been the movement in favor of less fat and more lean, what is pre ferred now being a tasty, mild-flavor ed, somewhat lean bacon, which is ( finely streaked with fat and of firm texture. j It is occasionally found in dealing with carcases for either pork or ba con that there exists an abnormal condition in the texture of fibre of the flesh. It is soft, yields to pres sure, is flabby, and possesses an un natural greasiness. This class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro duces inferior bacon. Observation has taught that it is mainly due to the various classes of food being used in improper proportions. Further experience has shown that this influence is more pronounced dur ing winter. Low, temperatures exert a change upon the nature of the body fat. Animals exposed to cold are prone ...

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRL.S. ! Why is it that a newly-engaged girl is a thorn in the flesh to all her dis engaged sister women? To begin "with—observes a lad} correspondent (who is not newly-en gaged)—she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who .ever seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone. When she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in other ways, she is so hopelessly selfish. But perhaps the personal vanity of the engaged girl enrages her femin ine acquaintances more than any of her numerous failings. To have to stand by and behold an insignificant,...

HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914

HOUSING POULTRY. If all poultry houses of the closed in type had an end or one side of them knocked out, diBease 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 fowlhouse 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 often an un sheltered yard the birds contract colds, and soon become a prey to dis ease. It were far better to let the hens roost in trees. The sleeping quarters of fowls should be merely draught-proof shelters from extremes of weather and, if winter eggs be de sired, they should have dry scratch ing quarters for bad weather. Always have your poultry houses open to the north. According to a Paris paper, "Seventy per cent, of the French people live in one room." But it must be a...

LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914

LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. Mr. S. P. Keys, writing in "Hoard's Dairyman," says:—When we come to the question of the upkeep of the fer tility of our farms, we find that we fate quite a serious problem. From what source are we to restore the humus, or vegetable matter, that is being rapidly exhausted by continu ous cropping? Manures and commercial fertilisers, while valuable, are not always obtain able. Farmers waste the barnyard manure, and feel that they cannot af ford to buy commercial fertilisers. To fill the biU ihere must be something within easy aceesn of every farm. The answer fto C£u;> i®.—green manures. The king tetanies used in green manuring i-. lu»erne. Not only does' it answer e/eiy requirement of a green manure, but is is also one of the most valuable of the standard crops. You may be cropping a given piece of land to lucerne, obtaining each year from five to seven cuttings, and at the same time you have at hand the means of restoring the fertility of the soil upon ...

SINGLETONS ORDERLY. The Story of a Soldier's Devotion [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914

SINGLETONS ORDERLY, i • The Story of a Soldier's Devotion V By 1-1. G. Richards. It is hardly befitting to speak ill of ' a man who has done a great and good thing. Yet I think it better to be plainly straightforward rather than permit you to misconceive Matheson s character. And this compels me to state immediately that of all the sol dier blackguards and bullies that ever existed, Matheson was the greatest. Me was his Colonel's living nightmare; he was the blackest of all the black sheep in a regiment which was at once the dread and despair of the Army - chaplains. He used to assert^ with pride that he had done more "cells" and "pack drills" than any other six men in the regiment combined. If anyone was so unwise as to dispute him this dubious honour, that indivi dual usually enjoyed a protracted hos pital holiday. For Matheson was as magnificent a specimen of muscular « manhood as you might hope to see outside the Guards. His early life history was wrapped in mists. He had come t...

GENERAL NEWS. Id the Assembly on Wednesday, Mr M'Lachlan urged that the area the settlers were compelled to put under beet at Boisdale be reduced from 10 acres to live acres. He quoted Mr M'Carthy's letter showing that for want of water this season that settlers had lost £100. The Minister of LandB informed Mr M'Lachlan that he and the Minister, of Agriculture intended to visit the Boisdale "Settlement when the House went into recess. The Country Roads Board has in formed the Traralgon Shire Council that it is anxious to have the work of re making that portion of the Melbourne road (in the shire) proceeded with as early as possible. The council has ac cordingly instructed the shire engineer (Mr Sambell) to prepare plans and specifications for about 12 miles of the road between Traralgon and Morwell and Traralgon and Fiynn's Creek. It is very probable that the work will be let in large sections—four to six miles— so that contractors with mechanical ap pliances will be induced to tend...

It matters not if the pro gress be slow, provided it be steadv and sure. "It is better to learn slowly and thoroughly, retaining the know ledge absorbed, than quickly and in a superficial way. A tortoise, on the right track, will ieach the goal sooner than a racehorse on the wrong one.
