THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY One of the cheapest, simplest, yet most effective of remedies is that known as Epsom salts, or magnesium sulphate. In the poultry-yard it is in valuable, and no poultry-keeper can. afford to be without it, for its use as a first aid in many instances will "ward off serious troubles, and save the lives of many fowls. Liver disease, or diarrhoea, when the comb is purple in color and a hen loses her appetite, is often remedied toy a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or after meals, the correct dose .being half a teaspoonful iper bird, dissolved in warm water, and poured down the throat. When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food supply, in order that the medi cine may have the full effect upon the bird's organs. Closely allied to the above is Glauber's salts, or sodium sulphate. This saline, treatment is ■wonderful in improving the digestion and appetite of ailing fowls, and by its action on the int...

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches a man when he is doing good. Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A man need not fear competition when he is in love with himself. People with small •. minds seldom have occasion to change them. A contented mind may 'be' a 'feast, •but feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it difficult to keep his head above water. If you want work well done, select a busy man—the other kind has no time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling in or out of it. Although otherwise stingy, a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round;— perhaps that is why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for. is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she., is connected with the ■best families. Instinct is now d...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

III. Meanwhile there was Stranraer Harbor at dusk and all its terrors. Hugh told lier at sunset just what he meant to do, and she listened without protest. His own motor car would be waiting for them at Stran raer; his own launch would take them ashore. "They know me here," he said, "there will be no trouble. If your old sailorman has not been able to hold his tongue, I do not suppose the cackle of it has travelled so far. We shall go ashore when it is dark and travel all night to Aberfeldy. It will be time enough when we get there for my sister and me to decide what is the best thing to be done." She looked up quickly at the word sister. "Do you think that I shall be able to abide by your decision?" she ask ed him—a vague question whose meaning he understood. "Oh," he said, "Geraldine_ is one ol the best little women "in the world; she doesn't always seem to he, but that's her manner. As I am her principal divinity I shall be very much surprised if she does not share my views. The ...

MAN-EATING FOXES. That the fox may he a man-eater ap pears from experience in Upper Pied mont, Italy. A young woman, accus tomed to wander in the mountain gorges, disappeared, .and after a time some articles of clothing toelonging to her, surrounded with, footprints of foxes, were discovered at a point nearly a mile afoove sea-level.

THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

THE FIRST PEN. Iii any large city, in the same block, possibly in the same building, can 'be found in use to-day the first type of pen and tlie latest. A fine hairbrush was the first instrument used by man for writing purposes. The Chinese laundryman of to-day marks his tickets and keeps his ac counts with a camel's hair pen dipped in ink. Next door- prabaibly is a white merchant who uses the latest make of steel pen. Between the two, in the long his tory of the pen, came the reed, then the quill. Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made by the ton and in increasing volume every year.. Confucius used a hair brush for a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before his time. The reed (came into use for writing Jin. |the marshy countries of the Orient. It was hollow and, cut in short lengths, with sharpened ends, it was some im provement on the hair pen. The value of the quill was discov ered at an early date in the history of civilisation, and its use spread fr...

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting ail engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Dreher, an employe of a large Lancashire firm, threw up his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, a ■widow of some means, and, as her re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon 'became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com jnunication, telling her of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to find on her arrival that Dreher, no doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she traced him to Italy, where he was found in Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed !by the brother's threats, he con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived, on landing at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the hue and cry raised, but Dreher managed to reach New York with his purs...

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness, There are few people responsible for more harm in the world than the thoughtless person; and his plea,, when the damage is done, "I didn't mean to," or "I didn't think," is poor consolation to those who have suffered from his thoughtless act. When, forty years and more ago, an old 'woman of Chicago left a lighted lamp in dangerous proximity to the heels o£ a cow, she little dreamt, we may tie sure, what appalling results would come from such a simple act of thoughtlessness. The fire which was started toy that over-turned lamp in j the Chicago cow-shed swept in tor rents of devastating flame over the city, and (before the last ember was quenched it had reduced to~-charred ruins three and a-half square miles of streets. More than 17,000 build ings were destroyed, two hundred j lives were sacrificed in the inferno of fire, 98,500 persons were rendered homeless, and damage was done to the extent of £38,000,000. In Kansas there...

GOOD HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 31 March 1914

GOOD HORSES. ■■'If we expect to produce goof, horses, the farmer and breeder must educate himself to be a better judge." A fundamental truth is undoubtedly contained in the sentence. The man untaught of standards will fail gener ally in reaching the top in any line of efforts. If he does not know what constitutes excellence, if he fails to understand perfection of product, if he lacks the inspiring ideal, only bull headed luck will land him at the top— and such luck does not often accom pany efforts at the propagation of an imal form. Why are so many inferior horses produced? Is It because the farmer must breed them? Is it because he can produce no other kind? Is it be cause he is too poor to get the tright sort? Is it because climate is against him? By no means. It is because either he does not know better or is too poor to do better. Generally the first explanation- applies. There are few farmers who cannot afford to pa tronise a good stallion instead of a mean one. Why does the f...

FRUIT DRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 31 March 1914

FRUIT DRYING. Fruitgrowers will Ibe interested in | the report of Mr. T.. E. Sedgwick, who was commissioned by the Council ot the Royal Horticultural Society to study the methods of fruit preserving in Germany, with the view of ascer taining how far the German methods might be applicable to English me thods. It appears by the newer me thods in Germany that only so much water is removed from the fruit by drying as is absolutely necessary to its keeping, thus producing good fla vor. The machine commonly used for this pm-pose consists of a self-con tain ed stove from which heated air passes through a long barrel-like container in which are placed a series of trays, the sides ot which are of wood and the bottoms of galvanised wire. As the trays are filled with the prepared fruit, they are inserted in the racks inside the barrel, and the fruit is gradually evaporated as the current of hot air carries off the essential moisture. An improved form of this kind of appara tus has a circulatin...

AGRICULTURE. THE USE OF LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 31 March 1914

AG R i C U L< ORE. THE USE OF LIME. The fertility of the soil is dependent upon the presence and activity of bao terial life, and no matter how lavishly manure is applied, the absence on sus pended action of the nitrifying organ isms cannot be atoned for. The soil which is not occupied by soil bacteria is held to be necessarily infertile; therefore, we must proceed on a me thod of manuring to promote the in crease and activity of nitrifying organ isms. Lime as a manure plays a most important part in all soils deficient, in this substance, as it preserves the soil iu a healthy and productive state by neutralising the accumulation of tacids and otherwise promoting and facilita ting the acitivity of the nutrifylng or ganisms. The quantity to be used differs according to the nature of the soil to be treated, but as far as in telligent interpretation of well-defined, practical results are concerned, large applications have always been shown to be harmful, as well as wasteful, ...

Around Our Settlements. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 31 March 1914

Around Our Settlements. During the past week Mr Jacob, of Mildura, has been ou visits of inspec tion to the settlements at Bauiawm and Nauneella, and got in close touch with the work in progress there, as well as the settlers, with whom he had long talks during which be gave them the benefits of his long and successful experience. He was gratified to see the great extent to which the settlers had adopted the recommendations he made at his former visit a year ago,' the cardinal feature of which was the subdivision of the allotments into small paddocks in which forage was planted so that there would be feed in some of them for every month of the year. These are grazed off in rotation by the. stock, by which means all expense of. cutting is avoided and the ground is plenti - fully manured without the necessity of cartage or distribution. r About 150 farmers in Bamawtn and Nan ueella have now subdivided their holdings. Mr Jacob was astonished and delighted at the progress m£de on the se...

Waranga Shire, WKST RIDING KLUC'flOX. An extroardinary election to fill the vacancy in the representation of the West Riding of the \Varat1ga Shire, caused by the resignation of Cr J. P.

In gram and R A. Williams, aud the result of the polling, with the ex ception of the postal votes, was as follows: —Ingram 264, Williams 2G8. The postal votes were not opeued, owing to a mistake made by the re luming officer whilst issuing, the ■ballot papers. One ballot paper only was issued to each postal ap plicant, irrespective of the number of votes to which he was entitled, and some:.>electors were therefore deprived of votes.
