THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE JERSEY-SHORTHORN CROSS [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 26 June 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. 4 — THE JERSEY-SHORTHORN CROSS A writer in the "Mark Lane Ex press Agricultural Journal" strongly advocates the crossing of the Short horn with the Jersey* as he considers it one of the most generally useful class of cattle for the dairyman, es pecially occupiers of small farms where the dairy, in'one phase or an other, is a retail business of prim ary importance. The presumption is that he had in view what is called a dual purpose breed. History, how ever, has shown that this cross has not been such a success as would warrant to give it a further trial. Reading through the pleas, the writer puts in favour of his conten tion, it is evident that he has not studied the history of the two breeds sufficiently. | The milking Shorthorn, as we know this breed in Australia, is still -an utrdefinable proposition in England, and it is only within the last few years that efforts have been mad"? to bring out the best qualities of that animal from a dairying proposition. In t...

A Temporary Funnel. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 26 June 1914

A Temporary Funnel. The amateur photographer often has some solution which he desires to put into a bottle which his glass funnel will not lit, says the "Photographic Times." The funnel | .made by rolling up a piece of paper usually allows hah' of tho solution to run down the outside of the bottle, thereby causing th© ama teur to bo dubbed a "musser." A better way is to take an ordinary envelope and cat it off as shown by the dotted lines. Theu clip a little J off the point, open out, and you have a funnel that will not give any trouble. It is cheap and you can afford to throw it away when dirty, thereby saving time and washing.

THE ECONOMICAL PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 26 June 1914

THE ECONOMICAL PIG. The pig is the most- economical of all animals. It has been foand in America that of what a horse e.its 52 per cent, goes to waste, 44 per cent, of the food consumed by cattle is similarly lost and 32 per cent of all that sheep take into their stom achs. But only 12 per cent, of what a pig eats is wasted. Of the food eaten by a pig 52 per cent, goes to make growth, while a sheep utilises only 25 per cent of its sustenance for growing, which, of course, means the production of meat. These figures are obtained from recent experiments made by Government experts, who find, as a result of their study, that the pig has what they call "eco-omic superiority" even over poultry. This means that it produces more meat in proportion to its weight, and the animal weighs more in proportion to the amount of food it consumes. It was found that S4 per cent of the carcase of a pig is used as meat, 75 per cent, of a bullock, and 51 per cent of a' sheep. The pig seems to have the adv...

It is alike hideous in appearance and habits, and moro than ono daring coral hunter and pearl-diver has found death in its terrible arpis.

Did Ancient Greeks Dance The Cakewalk? [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 26 June 1914

Did Ancient Greeks Dance The Cakewalk ? * Can wo, in these modern days, claim originality for anything ? It seems not, for even our "cake walk," which most people think was invented in recent years, is now proved to have been familiar to the ancients. In the British Museum can he seen a Greeki statuette of a lady who lived 2100 years ago ill an attitude which seems strangely familiar. "I enjoyed your sermon this morn ing very much," said Mark Twain to a clergyman of his acquaintance. "I welcomed it like an old friend. I have, you know, a book at home containing every word of it." "You lmvo not," said the prea cher. "1 have, indeed," returned the humourist. "Well, send that book to me. I'd like to see it." "You shall," Mark Twain replied. And lie sent the next morning an unabridged dictionary to the minis ter.

Dogs Distribute Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 26 June 1914

Dogs Distribute Disease. » Two of (.he most learned French professors of the Pasteur Institute have issued the following warning : "Beware of your pet dog." Street dogs of Marseilles have been found suffering from the dread ful Indian "black pest." In India this disease usually attacks dogs, and as many as ninety-eight per cent, die from its ravages. The southern parts of Italy and Algeria know the disease under the name of the "Mediterranean pest."' This disease does not confine it self to the dogs themselves, but is carried by parasites to human be ings, and, singularly enough, nearly always attacks children from the ages of six months to three years: The child becomes feverish and ndr^ vous, goes into a decline, and gra dually wastes away. Out of three hundred cases under special study only two per cent, have recovered. At the present time Great Britain is immune from any danger in this direction, and sufficiently protected against any such likelihood by the complete prohibition ...
