WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

WARTS ON TEATS. Many people fail to get rid of warts because tliey think it can only be done with great difilculty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but this is not the case. When cows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much opportunity to get rid of warts. To use any substance of a poisonous nature lor the wurt Is dangerous in many ways. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should be jipplled, and for this pur pose carbolised vaseline, and other preparations may be procured from the chemist. This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk ing to he carried on without any dis comfiture to the cow. In the caBe of warts, when small they can generally be got rid of by touching them with caustic soda. An other simple remedy, and one which in many cases has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then while it Ib still wet, dust it with dry carbonate of soda. If this is done after eacli milking/ the warts will gr...

WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

WINTER CARE. The season is at hand that is the hardest on our ever faithful friend the horse. The raw, damp, windy or extreme cold weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a valu able lierse. When a horse comes in wet from work or drive, rub him well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to- a dry blanket when the horse lias cooled. Rub the legs well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse is- more or lesB warm when he comeB In from a drive. Never strip off the harness or saddle and let the horse rush Into a feed of oats or a trough of water. INUVOr £IVtJ WULOI Ul uuin i.u a. nuiov. until he has been in tlie Btablo some time, and has had some hay. This is a sane and safe practice and much loss can he avoided by en forcing it. Change the bit. of the horse with the sensitive mouth. Take oft the check, or lot It out. Try a large rub ber-covered bif. If the horse "drives on one line,"' look to Ills teeth at once; a pharp tooth Is usually the cau...

VETCHES OR TARES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

VETCHES OR TARES. Vetches or tares are of two distinct kinds—those sown in the autumn for spring or early summer use, and those sown in tho spring which come in after tho winter sowing is used up. There are few crops which yield euch a large amount of- succulent green food, though perhaps for special pur poses other crops are preferable, but for general use and under all condi tions tares cannot be beaten. The amount of seed required per acre is about three bushels of tares and one bushel of oats or rye, the latter belni? sown to keep the tares off the ground somewhat and so prevent rotting in wet weather. In order to gain the full benefits from growing this green crop the sow ings should be made at different inter vals, beginning as early as possible, when the land can be prepared, so that successive cuttings are obtained without allowing them to become ripe. Tares are more suitable for soiling purposes than grazing,as this latter plan is vely wasteful, much of the food being tramp...

GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. No branch of dairy fanning is more important than tlie feeding and treat ment of cows; yet none is more gen erally neglected. The direct influence of what the cow eats and drinks upon the milk she produces cannot be too strongly impressed upon tlie attention of the farmer. Of equal importance arc the conditions under which food and drink are taken. If cows are chased by dogs or over-driven, or wor ried by boys on their way to pasture, their milk will surely show the effects in a deterioration of quality. If tlieir shelter in winter or shade In summer is insufficient, or tlie food is not suf ficiently nutritive, the penalty will in variably be paid in a smaller milk yield: Tliese restrictions are inevi table. One , of the greatest mistakes far mers make is in supposing that they may with impunity keep their cows on "short commons" during the win ter and that tliey will fatten up in tlie spring, and milk as well as ever. A cow reduced to meagreness by semi st...

SCOURING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

SCOURING CALVES. I'rom experiments carried out in Germany it is claimed to have boen discovered that sour milk given to calves! from the lirst to the ilfth day of their lives, forms an excellent pre ventive of scour. The constant losses —sometimes of valuable pedigree calves-^are well Known in most herds, and are attributed- to the curdling of the milk in the stomach. The bacteria in sour milk are supposed to act bene ficially- In Germany it is called yog hurt, produced by adding Bacillus bul garicus to milk. This generates lac tic acid in the stomach of the calves, which acts as a disinfectant, and pre vents the development of the hurt ful bacteria, and at the same time sti mulates the activity of the intestine, probably by producing a ferment that destroys the bacilli which give rise to scour.

AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. Within the past ton yeurs the daily cows of Australia have Increased from one million to above two millions. The butter produced in a single year reach ed about 200,000,000 lbs. The annual export is valued at between £!!,000,000 and £1,000,000. No rural industry ill Australia is more progressive and none pays larger returns to the farmers. The niainstay of dairying is the export market, and easily tlie largest con sumers of Australian butter abroad are the people of the United Kingdom. It might bo thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common wealth. As "a matter of fact, however, the Australian dairy farmer, in point of cost, is as closc to London as the dairy farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price of shipping butter from either .Melbourne or Syd ney to Loudon is V£d. per lb.

DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. An English dairying authority says: The elimiwiUon of the worthless nni mnls should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow keeper. Milk records kept carefully and sys tematically furnish reliable Informa tion which enables a cow keeper to de tent these worthless animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at once. There are some farmers, of course, who may be tempted to rely wholly 011 their own judgment as far as the milking capacities of any cow Is con cerned; but guess-work of this kind enn teach nothing what it costs to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed In relation to the average quantity of milk produced. Milk producers need to study this question of cost of food in relation to milk yield very carefully indeed. The fact, is clear that a cow giving, say, SOO gallons per annum costs practic ally no more to feed thaii one which only gives GOO gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of £fi on the latter, if t...

CHAPTER XIII. The Price of Silence. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

CHAPTER XIII. The Price of Silence. I Ilnglt returned to tile Carlton lin tel ;it a quarter to five. lie was a little surprised not to find Geraldine ' there; but he imagined'that she might have taken Desdy to the Hippodrome or to Jlaskelyiie's—she who had such, llille taste for all theatrical shows herself, ilad she done so, it would have been a new victory for this ama zing child, who seemed able to bring anybody to his feet, and had already conquered half the staff at the Carlton —while he was an eternal source of wonder to the matchless Joseph. Hugh was well aware of Geraldine's real affection for him, but he began to think that never would he have her | favor for Leila, but for the untoward circumstances of these later days. There are some women who can live i whole lifetime upon a volcano of profound emotions, and yet never -let the world see so much as a wraith of smoke above the inscrutable mount.

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

LADIES' LETTER. (By "Irene.") The moro we ace of the now fash ions the moro it becomes apparent that the stiff corset must go and the new figure and pose bo adopted, to a certain extent, if they are to be worn with any good effect. There -must be a svelte pliability that any much- bon ed and braced corset will not allow, and there must bo a certain sugges tion of limpness. How different is the now figure-line from that of last year. So much so that many thoughtful wo men long have hesitated before adopt ing the new Btyle. The question is: will complicated draperies enjoy as short a reign as did panniers last sea son? Parlsiennes were almost taken aback themselves by the unheard of eccentricities paraded for their edi fication at fashionable racecourses. The'leading houses, seeing they had overstepped the mark, capitulated, and immediately made tracks in an other direction. Hence modes which threatened to be more than eccentric have become subdued and are simple | and elegant. _ The ...

THE BUSY BEE Winter is close upon us. In the coolest oC our districts bees have al ready retired, and before the montn is out the retirement-will be general. During the warmer portion's of the • days, especially if the sun is bright, the bees will still venture out, but they will not wander far from homo it last month's advice has been at tended to, i.e., if they are supplied with sufficient honey to carry them on till spring, or the coming breeding season. If bees are forced to go for aging on bright winter days, the sud den atmospheric changes prevent the return .of many, and a good supply of food in the hive is the only remedy. I' also forms one of the best methods to keep up the warmth of the hive. On every occasion when the weather is bright and drying, remove the wraps, etc., from the hives, and spread them out to dry. External dampness produces internal dampness, which is one of the most prolific causes of di sease. Just before sundown return the protections to the hives. The...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

Tlie letter staggered Hugh, and his perplexity increased the more he thought upon It. Well done or ill-done, he felt it his duty .to let Leila know exactly what had happened, and to let her know immediately, if she charged liim with u breach of trust, he knew he would not defend him self with success, for lmd he not pledged his word to her, and would a woman believe him? Upon the oth er side was the wisdom of Geraldine: How shrewd she had been; how quick to do, the right tiling! He began to see that all his heroics in the prison were so much vain-glorious nonsense, and would never have stood the tc-st of reason. II. would have been mad ness to have carried away the lad upon the yacht, nud opinion would have condemned both man and wife. Geraldine had solved the riddle. I It had yet to learn what price of Leila's affections he must pay for her wit. Would Leila condemn him. He re membered her sweetness, her despair, the gentle sorrow Blie had made so brave ah effort to hide from him. A...
