CAIIV. -IF mw-T \VWil« U»orc\ ax'o Kornc times oxoep lional conditions under which it ma^ bo for tho general good that an indi vidual, horo and there, may sacrifice health, happiness, and even lifo it self, it remains true that the moral iaw of benevolence prescribes quit© * different course for most of us. Whatr ?vor weakens our vitality and vigoui makes us less useful in our work, and in all our relations of life. If er treme indulgence in any natural ap petite does this on one hand, so does its unnatural and oxcesaivo restraint on the other. If we consider tho ap petite of hunger, for instance, we shall seo the effect of gluttony on one hand, and of starvation on the other. No loubt it is often murh moro difficult :o preserve a due moderation than to $o to either extreme. It requires deli cate discrimination to discover just what the body needs for its most per fect development, and a firmness of purpose' to supply those needs in the right proportions.

INFLUENCE OF FATNESS OF COW AT CALVING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 8 May 1914
IXKIJ'K.VCK OK KATNKS.S DI'i'dW AT CALVING. An examination of the records of uttieial tosts with Holstein Kriesian cows by one of 1 he Amoriran experi mental stations showed that, the fat contrnt of the milk for a short, time at the beicinriinc of a lactation pe riod may have little relation to the real average fat. content nf the milk produced by any particular zinimnl. Investigations with cows of various breeds and in different conditions were enrried out. and it is concluded tha*. providing the cow is underfed after calvini:, the percentage of fat in the milk for th(* first 20 or :!0 days of the lactation period is in Hnenr'*d to a considerable extent by the fatness of the cow at calvinc. In some cases this inflnence appeared to extend to a certain - decree for at least three months. The tiller of the soil is the most nec-^sary man in the world. He feeds and clothes the world, ami with out him the world would co naked and starve. Apparently he in the only person in the worM that ...
