HANDLING BALKY HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 22 May 1914

HANDLING BALKY HORSES. This Is a practical problem which defeats a great many farmers. It Is humiliating to be outwitted by a stub born horse. In dealing with this sub bjegt, a writer' In the "American Korsebreeder" says that there is no "sure cure" for balky horses. When we come to '.he genuine inbred balker. we all have to admit that we are usu ally beaten. The balking vice more than any other requires different handling for each individual case You cannot secure such correction 01 the fault in every case so that any body can drive the animal. This can not be done, because, as a famoii? horse-trainer has put it. "you can't cure a;i the balky drivers." For a sulkc-r that will throw him self and refuse to get up. "hog-tying" is as good a remedy to apply as we are likely to find. Tie all four feet together and then go and weed the onions or sit down in the shade an ! read the papers for an hour. Tw i hours may be necessary in some case.-. You can very near tell when he has given up. ...

SMOKE AND ELECTRICITY. Electricity appeared as a solution for the smoke problem in a rcccnt demon stration. The smoke-abating nppliauce removed the soot from 000 cubic feet of smoke in a minute at a total cost 0/ about a penny a day for operation. The action of the apparatus consists in pre cipitating tho solid particles in tho smoke by means of a powerful electric (HitreLt, and its invention is based on the fact that one-third to one-half 0i the solid matter in smoke from smelt ing furnaces consists of particles of iron oxide. Electrical current is applied t the smoke by means of a wire M«jver. through a number of small pipes placed at the top of the chimney so that tho Bfiiuke must pass througk chcm. As soon as the electricity is turned on tliu small particles floating in the smoke are changed io Virgo particles which fall back iuto a biu by their own weight, ltd application is not confined, however, to smelting furnaccs, for it has been found that the device works as success full...

Using Up Sour Milk. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 22 May 1914

Using Up Sour Milk. I had been in the habit of throwing away any milk, cream, .>. custard whi"h l'» i tu'TC'1 sour. But now I save them and keep them for mixing cakes and boiled puddings. If yon have sour milk instead of fresh, yon must put into your cake or pudding a small pinch of bicarbonate of soda. When the soda and the sour milk meet cnch other, they "fizzle," as the diildrcn say, and the result is that your pudding rises up to twice the usual sue, and is as light as a fea ther. "Mary," complained the husband, "why do you suppose it is that people all say I have such a large head?" "I don't know, I'm sure, John," said his wife consolingly; "but never mind, there's nothing in it." -atlier: No, indeed! My fnt'lier .ever lieard me tell a lia.
