FEAR OF & PBEMATUBE BUBXAX, A TEST OF DEATH. I In order to. obviate the risk of prema- i hire burial the late Mr Samuel Valen- . tine, of Brixton, who left L22.000 to charities, decreed in his will that 'George Russell Beardmore, M.R.C.S., of Islington, shall sever my cartoid ar tery or puncture my heart. . . but if any cause or circumstances shall occur to prevent the carrying out thereof, I direct that my body shall be unlnterrel for a period of fifteen days following , toy presumed death, unless decomposi- ' tlon shall set in before that time.' I Dr Beardmore, who -performed th« operation of puncturing Mr Valentine's h'eart, explained to a 'Dally Mall' re presentative that it was no uncommon thing for persons.to take a similar pre caution against premature burial. In the case mentioned, however, if there was any life left it would immediately leave the body if the heart was pierced. 'Another way,' continued -the doctor, would be to puncture an artery.

THE DAIRY. SUCCESSFUL MILKERS MUST PRACTICE KINDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907

ffllWJB^^g^ BtrooEibrpi. MiLKEas .' ~ mbst Ewery. ?' milker thinks .be knows how to milk (writes Mrs Anna Sorensen in the ' Michigan Farmer') but if the tows could express their opinions they wouW probably inti mate that a few lessons in the gentle art would help many, milkers. It is not (air treatment to sit down to a cow and tug and haul on her until she steps around in the stall and acts as if she* were badlv hurt. Fome times a cow will stop eating and wait until the ordeal is over before she will resume her meal. Tho cow that does that is not comfortable, and an uncomfortable c-uv will not do her best. Some men have a way of milking which so pleases the cow that she clearly shows she enjoys it. These are the men whose methods should be copied. Observing them we see that they never shout at, strike or otherwise ill-treat their cows. They sit down quietly, take hold of the teats gently, no matter how much of a hurry they may be in, and begin to draw the milk without pressing too h...

DUTCH BELTED CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907

DUTCH BELTED CATTLE. The picturesque Dutch Belted cow spreads very slowly from her home in the Netherlands. In Australia she is a stranger, but with so pronounced a run on new breeds in these States she is likely to be Introduced to us at any time. The breed was taken to the United States about TE years ago, but It has made very slow progress. It would appear '.hat it Is not characterises by any special qua lities calculated to make It a favorite over other dairy breeds. ' In weight the Dutch Belted cattle are about equal to the Ayrshire, and are more active and less gaunt In appearance than their cou sins the Bolstelns. They are deep milkers, but their product is low in butter fat Crossed with other breeds, they throw excellent dairy stock. This is often done to Improve the quality of their milk. An interesting feature about . the Dutch grades is that they almost Invariably carry the white belt, irrespective of the color of the rest ' of , the body. It is not . uncommon to see a he...

THE COW DEMANDS CONSTANCY. Dairying is not a good business for the man who likes to be away from borne part of the time, and who entrusts the management of his business In part to others. Dairying by proxy seldom proves satisfactory or remunerative, and men with many irons in the fire had. better cut out dairying. They will do far better In some line of live stock farming that does not require the con stant watchfulness and personal super vision demanded by the cow and her produce. - ? ? ?
