CONDENSED DAIRY KNOWLEDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 21 August 1908

CONDENSED DAIRY KNOW . 1EDGE. Professor C. L. Beach, of the Vermont Agricultural Experiment Station. America, has condensed the science of feeding cows into "the following: 'Tew paragraphs: The more food the cow can be induced to eat the more milk she will produce. Cows do not usually consume more food than they can properly digest. The ra tion therefore should he made as pala table as posslblo, to induce the cow to eat large quantities. The larger the amount of protein in the ration the larger the milk flow. Pro tein in the ration is essential to the pro duction of the milk. The less energy required to digest the ration the larger the milk flow. The richer the ration the richer th<5 manure. The dairy farmer must look here for large part of his return. IfTo two cows can be fed alike. Each must be studied differently. Increase the protein in the ration and watch the milk flow.

Do You Think. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 21 August 1908

Yon Think. Thought is our ono weapon, our ono force our oho earthly salvation. No matter what may ho the problem, thought must precede its solution. Tho heaviest, hardest, noisiest work is horn of silent, invisible, shapeless thought. A great bridge must be built of iron and stone. There are hammering, ehisselling, blasting-but behind all the noise there is the quiet thought in the engineer's brain, and that thought is tho real bridge. History tells about the noise of a great battle. Cannon, cavalry eharges, gatling. guns, groans of the dying, the shouts of the commanders. All that is picturesque, but that is not the battle. The battle, the victory, were in the thought of tho quiet, steady man who planned every movement from the stait of the battle to the enemy's defeat. Our eternal, unreal lives are lives of noise, sound, shape, force, physical effort. Tho real life, the only life that each of up really leads, is the silent, strange, mysterious thought-life with in ourselves. When ...

Water Conservation. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 21 August 1908

Water Conservation.. A public meeting was held in the hall on Wednesday evening of last week when Cr. Quirk-who presided explained that the meeting had been called with a view of discussing the locking of the Murray. The at tendance was meagre considering the importance of the matter, but no> doubt the coursing meeting at tracted many who would otherwise have been present. It was expected that representatives would have been present from other centres, but with the exception of Messrs Evans (Mayor of Deniliquin), Alderman Fitznead and Murray Wyse, other leagues were not represented. Had Cobram been invited to attend we feel sure many gentlemen would have been only too willing to assist the movement. Cr. H. Vagg was present but only by accident as he happened to be in the town on other business. The Mayor of Deniliquin ex i pressed disappointment that the at I tendance was so small but trusted that some good would eventuate from the meeting. He said that at a meeting held in Denil...

Tocumwal Guardian AND FINLEY FREE PRESS. (Established 1897.) FRIDAY, AUGUST, 21st 1908. Burial Without Inquiry. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 21 August 1908

TocumwaJ Guardian AND FINLEY FREE PRESS. (Established 1897.) FRIDAY, AUGUST, aisfigoS. Burial Without Inquiry. / . The methods adopted by those in authority in connection with the order for burial of a child at Finley on Tuesday last are certainly not to be commended. Such methods are retrogressive and are now only regarded as a custom resorted to in tliepte-historic times, and even then, only where it was almost an utter impossibility to hold an inquiry. The law provides that in the absence of a Coroner and Police Magistrate, any Justice of the Peace may hold a magisterial inquiry touching the death of any-person found dead, etc., where there are no suspicions of foul play. In such an inquiry the Jus tice has the same power as a Coroner to summon medical wit nesses, and order a post mortem examination, but cannot compel the attendance of any other witness. If upon the holding of any Coroner's iuquest touching the death of any person it appears that the deceased was not at or immedi...

A Glass of Coritlomen. Professor Blackio was one day lectur ing to a new class ,with whose person nel lie was very imperfectly acquainted. In answer to some directions given by tlio professor, a student rose to read a paragraph, his book in his left hand. "Sir," thundered Blackio, "hold your book in your right hand!" and as the student would lmvo Bpokcn, "No words, sir! Your right hand, I say." The student held up his right arm, ending piteously at the end of tho wrist. Before tho Professor sould open his lips there aro.se a storm of hisses, and his voico was overborne as by a wild sea. Then he left his placo and went down to thOjStudent ho had unwittingly hurt. He put his arms round tho lad's shoulders and drew him to his side. "My boy," ho said-he, spoke very softly, yet not so softly but that every word was audible in tho hush that had fallen, on the class room. "My boy, you'll forgive me that I was rough. I did not know.. I did not know." Ho turned to tho students, and with a lo...

HARDENING THE BUTTER. COTTON CAKE FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 21 August 1908

nABmSHIKG THE BTTTTEB. COTTON CAKE FOOD. Soft butter (writes o.n English paper) la one of the usual products of. the dairy during the uummer time, and the ques tion is often asked if anything can te done to make the material harder tor more convenient handling and use. Ordinarily about 90 per cent of the fat of butter is made up of three varie ties of fat, which are found In all kinds of fatty or oily material-stearine, pat mitin, and oleln. Stearin is a hard fat at ordinary tem peratures, while oleln is a liquid or oil, and.lt Is owing to the fact that the lat ter is in greater proportion in the butter in the summer time that the butter la soft-as well as to the higher tempera ture of the air. Several things can bo done, however, to help this and counteract the tendency to softness in the manufactured article. On grass alone the butter would be soft at this time of the year, but if from two to four pounds of cotton cake or the meal of the eame) is given per head dally there will be...

® SLXJGS AND SNAILS. PREVENTION.AND REMEDIES. Slugs are a pest this season in some districts. They are doing a great amount of damage to young plants in the gar dens. Their natural enemies are birds. Star lings devour large numbers of them. TV>ads feeds on them, 'and poultry and ducks .are fond of the slugs. In a pamphlet recently issued by the British Board of Agriculture the fol lowing measures are suggested as tend ing to prevent and lessen the attack of these pests: Drainage, because dampness favors them.

Dry dressings of some irritant to kill the pests, (n) Soot and lime: (b> salt and lime; (c) lime and caustic soda; or to act mechanically, (d) powdered coke. The lime must be in a very finely-di vlded state and quite fresh. Two or three dressings must be given, the se .cond some 15 to 30 minutes after the ilrst..
