MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

'I^roia our ©p&oial Corrcspondcat.)

But, it is a difficult mat ter ho know .fast how to doal with them.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

OF RURAL INTEREST "Rusticus.") 'J hat wo' are all farmers when it comes down to tho essentials has been ng.un demonstrated by tlin rejoicing throughout cities and towns, as well as on the land, when the splendid ram came. The people of the pavements hare been made to realise a« they neve;- did before how dependent they are upon the success of the pordu.cers, and how they are personally affected by climatic conditions, that restrict the results of th» work of those on the land. Perhaps this realisation may bring about greater consideration for the latter-some lightening of the many burdens they have to bear-but it is only perhaps. When butter is again down to normal prices; meat has ceased to be a luxury and1 eggs ar-. ? restored to the list of things- proeur- j able by the average suburban house- j wife, there will be a return to the in difference as to thc interests of those whose In bars and self-sacrifice provide those every-day wants, and tho same old Kelfish putting of thc citi...

PREPARATION OF A COW FOR FRESHENING. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

PREPARATION OF A COW FOR FRESHENING. The accumulated experience of pro gressive dairymon proves that a cow should have a rest between lactation periods. If milked continuously up to she freshens will be less profitable than the breeding. Without rest it is im tho time of freshening, the period which possible for her to renew her depleted strength, or to lay up a supply of fat for the now lactation period, nor cau she nourish the now rapidly growing foetus. It may seem like wasting feed to lay fat 011 a cow's body, but in reality it is not, for the fat will later appear as fat in the inilk. Moreover, wheu a cow freshens, she is usually more or less feverish, and her digestion impaired to a certain extent. To place her on full feed at this time is to invite trouble. But if she is in good condition, the with j holding of her feed -will result in no harm, inasmuch as her needs will bo taken care of by the fat stored on the . body. A thiu cow has no such reserve, and one has to choose be...

INHERITED GIFTS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

INHERITED GIFTS. Much has been said ami much writ ton on the subject of heredity. While some philosophers assert there is no such thing as an inherited taste, that it is merely a question of environment, others stonily maintain that heredity has a very great ileal to do with the formation of character and with the possession of special gifts. The latter school point triumphantly to many of the great musicians. The mother of Schumann, for example, had great musi cal ability, and Chopiu received . liis_ wonderful gift-aud also his delicate constitution-from the maternal side. Gounod's mother was exceedingly fond of music, while the mother of Sophr was an excellent judgo of music aud a line critic, without being herself a musician. Sir Walter Raleigh, moreover, credits his mother with the politeness of deport mont which ever distinguished him. Goethe pays frequent tribute in his writ ings to the character and culture of his mother, as does also the poet Words worth. Sydney Smith believ...

THE PRESERVATION OF EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

PRESERVATION OF EG6S. The extension department of the Uni versity of Saskatchewan has issued the results of a aeries 9f esperimeato in ogg preservation carried on by Prof. Shutt, of the Central EsperimontelSta tion, Ottawa. This work, extending over a period of seven years, and in volving as it did the trial of tvrenty iivc different preparations, con vinced him of the (superiority of lime water over all the preservatives tested. Concerning the preparation of lime water, Prof. Shutt saya:-"The eolu bility of lime at ordinary temperatures is 1 part in 700 parts of water. Bach a solution would be termed 'saturated lime-water.'' Translated into pounds aud gallons this means 1 lb. of lima is sufficient to saturate 70 gallons of water. However, owing to the im purities in commercial lime it is well to use more than is called for in this statement. If freshly burnt quicklime can bo obtained, 1 lb. t-o 5 pilloiit (."io Ib.j of water~£CC3.J'c aafple, and the resulting lime-water fjiil b« tl...

OUR BOYS, [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

OUR BOYS, The departure of so many of our finest specimens of manhood for the Pront is in one sense depressing. We don't care to lose our brothers aud sons even for a year or so. There is loss of time to those who are learning their trades, or a disturbance in the business in which they are ordinarily engaged. Along with this there is the possibility of our not seeing them return. This is the black side of the affair; but there in a bright side also, aud we have to be prepared to sacrifice our lads for the light against absolute might aud aggression. The great enemy of civil isation is at this time making a sup reme effort in real desperation. His cause, if- ever it deserved' the name, is lost; but before he yields he will go to any end to wreak revenge on his conquerors. Germany, or rather Prus sia, camiot possibly achieve its desire on the world; the world is against it and it simply cannot be. The policy of bullying and terrorising the world has proved itself to be pure bluff. Al...

'ihe children fully organised and conducted a concert at night in the school in aid of the Educational Department's War Relief Fund, the result will augment the Patriotic Fund and assist the brave and resolute Belgians.

The concert was followed by a bruce auction in which the children, as well as the parents and visitors willingly took part. The proceedings resulted the sum of over £5 being add^d to the fund. This is not the first time that the Powlett River school chilJren have arisen to the occasion. Some time ago the children arranged and conducted a similar concert to help our patriotic purposes. On that occasion they were the firs,t to initiate t...

DESTRUCTIVE FOXES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

DESTRUCTIVE FOXES. One of the most dreaded enemies of | the lambraiser at the present time is the fox. Each year has seen fewer and few champions of this accursed pest. Those who welcome the presence of the fox as a hostile influence to the rabbit, and profess to regard the creature a friend, have been silent, as they have in course of time gained experience of what the pest means to them when the lambing season comes around." Through out almost every district when it has been established, the fox lives the life of a freebooter, feasting on the best, from geese, turkeys, chickens, and eggs to succulent young rabbits and guileless Iambs. Foxes breed freely and fre quently among the ranges, and wher ever there are ranges one may rest as sured of hearing that the foxes are a scourge. When the home has been lo cated among the rocks, and a den is found containing cubs, the usual method euiployod on stations is to bolt the little wretches with torriers, and to shoot them down like rabbits...

DRYING OFF MILKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

DRYING OFF MILKERS. It is an important matter in dairying : that tows should bo really dry before J being turned out with the dry part of tho herd. Often a cow that still se t-rotes a little milk is turned out and evil results follow. While there is any milk How it should be drawn off, for it is injurious- to permit the udder to retain any thick, mattery substance ; un doubtedly, many traces of udder trouble can be traced to not removing this substance from the udder. More over, it is not well for the animal to absorb this fluid into her system. Gen erally cows begiu to decrease throe months from calving in milk flow rather lapidly. ft is not the poor dairy cow that gives us any anxiety at this, but ' ay ss tralitmam thartmhinrm tharth it is the heavy milker. There can be no hard and fast rules laid down for the feeding and handling of the cow at this timo. If the cow is thin in flesh, it is seldom necessary to make any change in the system of feeding, but her milk flow can be reduc...
