Keep a Goat. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 August 1908
Koon a poat. There aro probably few animals less . appreciated at their true value than tho ordinary goatv Tho old llornans thought moro of it than wo do nowa- i days, and gave it the name "vacca pau- I peris," or tho poor mnn's cow. Its praises, however, aro now sung anew in a book just-published by JO;'J. Dutton and Co., entitled "The' Case for the Goat," and written by an author' with the nom-de-plumo of "Homo Conn- . tries." It is A great pity, ho says, that this animal is not mors gonoraUy kept as it might bo, not only in country dis tricts ;but oven'in city Suburbs where there is a garden. "Where three acres and a cow aro out of reach, three acres and as many goats aro' within most people's possibilities. A cow locks up a'considerable amount of capital. Death or other accident may inflict a serious lAss.1 Moreover, with a single cow it id impossible to maintain a continual supply of milk. Substitute several goats for oiio'^cow, and such a supply can readily Uc'maiiitained. A d...
CONSUMPTION IN NEW YORK [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 August 1908
CONSUMPTION IN NEW YORK In the State of New York the amual .death-rate from tuberculosis shows o remarkable uniformity, both as regards the total number of deaths from tills cause, and the relation to the general death-rate. About 14,000 deaths, we learn from the ."Hospital," occur there from tuberculosis In each year, ai-i this -number constitutes from one tenth to one-eleventh of all deaths. Year after' year, while the population has increased rapidly, and while tlu' general death-rate has decreased and " the prevalence of tuberculosis has olsc diminished, this level has been, retainel with little variation. These facts ar.; noted by Dr." John H. Pryor. He con siders that the plan of prevention usu ally employed is haphazard, careless, and Ineffectual. ___

ANALYSING THE SOIL AN UNSATISFACTORY SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 August 1908
. ANALYSING THE SOIL UNSATISFACTORY 'SYSTEM. Iri the coursc of an Interesting artlclo on this subject, tho "Qtago Witness" ' writes: * "The farmer usually gets mixed up about manuring his land, because he Is not quite clear what the land needs. He distrusts tho work of the analyst, and . having never conducted any experiments on his own account, he falls back on some artificial manure which lias suc ceeded with hlin in former years, and no Improvement Is effected in his crops. The same land skilfully manured with exactly what it required would add half as much more to his returns. This dip trust of the analyst's figures arises from two causes. In the first place, although the. analyst can state definitely the com- . position of the. land and indicate to a minute fraction tho constituent parts of it, he cannot tell ho.\v much of these In gredients are in a condition available for plant food j and in the second place, the analyst's figures are stated in such a way that they might as w...

SELECTING A SIRE. SOMli PRACTICAL HINTS. Ono of tho most","important questions to thoso'who wish to breed'horses is tho selection of a sife.' On this question .the following remarks, from the Lon don "Live Stock Journal/' are worthy of consideration:-1 ' '"Two matters which will rise upper most in all practical minds fl.ro breeding and soundness; for, no matter to what breed i hdrse belongs, these aro ques tions of paramount importance. No mat .ier how good-looking'a stallion may be, nothing opproachlng a certainty In the , way of results can be expected froth him unless his breeding is right, arid even when ^this Is the'case, tho plrospects _ , of., a throw-baclc arc by no means re mote. The breeder, therefore, If he li a wise man, ,will endeavor to acquaint himself with "the shape and make and general characteristics of. as many a* possible of the ancestors of the sire he. fancies.

FOXES AS DESTROYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 14 August 1908
FOXES AS DESTROYERS. The heavy snow that fell at Carcoar, last week (writes the Sydney "Dally Telegraph,")' has been the mean's of bringing: to light the fact that'foxes ate more'numerous In this locality than was thought' to bo'the case. Rabbit-trap pers state that when snow was thick on the ground the tracks of the foxes -were easily picked up. In some parts of the bush they state that it must be literally overrun with the pest, as they discov ered nothing else but the tracks of foxes, in the snow. In other parts they state that cats also left numerous trails. The peculiar thing is that no damage' to sheep Is being reported, . and It is thought that the foxes are living on rabbits alone. Experienced' trapp6rs state they have discovered as many as 14 young piipsln one nest. -1* 1 The foxes apparently centre their at tention on rabbits,as they have hot been found to Interfere with' anything else. Trappers* camps are often left without anyone in charge for hours at a time, but none o...

"Penelope.") /Although the primary object of this letter is that it should be a util itarian one, and as such iof practical benefit to those of you who arc desir ous of making the most of such means of,self adornment as lies within your immediate disposal, still there are sea sons such as when Spring is taking the place of Winter, and Autumn chills m:ikc mock of summer draperies, that the theme of this discourse must necessarily be confined to the larger issues such as the materials which are to foe^ worn,. the modes -which are to prevail, and the general 'tenor of the great dominating factor "what shall we wear."

"Catching" Conun drum. It was a' Saturday afternoon and! the village street was busy, for many of the outlying settlers had drivent in for their week-end m.ail and: . other necessaries. The day was. mild, with a balmy breeze gently stirring the foliage of the trees that: graced the streets where the well to-do had made theft homes. The; business people were busy attending to' the various wants of .their cus tomers, who .when supplied, stood, chatting - in little groups about the street, or strolled idly along the footpath, and when one of the num ber, a solitary gentleman from a. neighbouring rancti, approached a. neat "villa the door was gently opened and a lady appeared, looking^ intently up the street in the opposite: direction, but as he drew near she ' turned her ,head with a look of ap- . parent surprise, exclaiming, "Here: .1- am caught again" though an on looker could not fail to notice that as he caught a glimpse of the form at the door he halted a moment,, looked wistfully...

A RUDE JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 21 August 1908
A RUDE JOKE. One can display no greater breach of courtesy than In deriding anything which a people hold sacred, no matter how absurd the object of veneration may seem to the foreign mind. In an incident told fn "Temples and Ele phants," by Carl Bock, the Siamese au dience showed by their silence and res traint a politeness superior to the fun maker in the ring, although the circus men belong to a nation supposed to be more civilised. Tho sacred white elephants of. Slam are clcarly albinos, but they are seldom, if ever, white. Their usual color is a pale reddish brown, although there may be a few real white hairs on the back. . An English circus at one time visited Bangkok, where the performances were witnessed by the king and princes. One day it was announced that a "real white elephant" would take part In that even* ing's show. The circus'was crowded. After the usual programmo had been carried out two clowns came into the ring. "Did you ever see a white elephant?" asked one. "Oh y...
