The Retort Courteous. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
The Retort Courteous. One day a learned proressor was accosted by a very dirty little boot black: "Shine your shoes, sir?" The professor was impressed by the filthiness oE the boy's face. VI don't want a shine, my lad," said he, "but if you'll go anil wash your face I'll give you a sixr-T.ce." "A'riclit, sir/' was the lad's reply, as he went over to a neighboring fountain and made his ablutions. Re turning, lie held out his hahd for tho money. "Well, my lad," said tho professor, "you have earned, your "sixpence. Here it is.'!; "I dlnna want it, auld chap," return ed the boy, with a lordly air. "Yo keep it and. get yer hair cut."
CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. The value of tlie cabbage as a feed for dairy cows is fairly generally known. It is a succulent feed; is highly relished by cows, . is an ex cellent milk producer, and is rich in protein. But whilst its value is rea lised, many dairy farmers have a rooted obection to it on accouut of its liability to impart an undesirable flavor to milk and butter. This ques j tion is dealt witli by a writer in a I recent issue of "Hoard's Dairyman." | After observing that the only objec tion to feeding cabbage to milch cows is the flavor imparted to the milk, he proceeds to point out that, when fed under certain conditions, this objectionable feature can be avoided. One of the first precautions r^o observe is to keep thd cabbage away from the shed at milking time. Milk absorbs odors very quickly indeed, and if the cabbage odors are near the milk it will be tainted. An other precaution to observe is not to feed tner cow's. just before milking; any high-flavored feed, in fact—...
MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. The experience already gained in places where associations have been organised shows that with the weed* ing* out of the unprofitable cows comes an interest in better cows and in the greater care of the cows. There is a tendency to make greater discrimination in price between good, and poor animals. The Introduction of better cows per medium of the testing procure creates a desire for more of them. Thus a larger number of cows with high yielding capacity reduces the cost of collecting milk and cream in a given territory. The increased Interest in iairying stimulates an interest in pure-bred stock. Instances are given where dur ing the first year's exlstenca of a dairy-testing association only one man owned a pure-bred dairy bull; twenty two such bulls were found awons the herds the following year. While no pure-bred cows at all we owned the first year, twenty-one were bought during the second year. This interest steadily increased, and during the third ye...
DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. On nil pastures whore cows and young Block have boon grazed for many years without Bpecial means being talcon to restore the losr. of phosphates; on all pasiures abound ing in coarse grans niul weedB on damp, rushy grounds, and on els/ land pastures, an application of 5 cwt. per acr3 will he found to pro duce satisfactory result during the first and subsequent seasons. Th«i remarkable appearance of clover which follows closely upon such an application is only to bo accounted for by the stimulus which phosphatic and calcic manures give to this class of plants. White clover throws out suckers and is of a creeping natarc, from which it derives its botanical name of repens. That the plant ex isted in a weak and condition previously cannot bo duubteJ, but a d^cs'Mnf.' o' phosphate of lime causes an unwonted development nnd vigor ous growth of both wivt.? clover and other leguminous plants.
HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. The man, or woman, who wants to be as good-looking as nature will per mit "Is given a few practical hints in the ."Family Doctor":— Don't eat your meals quickly; this causes indigestion and a red nose. Don't worry; other people's troubles are quite as bad as yours. Don't forget that a penny spent on fruit does more good than a shilling on buns or sweets. Don't walk five miles one day and stay at home all the next. Don't read till midnight; one hour's sleep before twelve is worth five afterwards. Don't shut your bedroom window; fresh air is necessary for health. Don't expect physics and tonics to keep you well i£ you neglect the laws of health and hygiene.

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
. THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. As an intnnce of the numners 01 i bacterih. tho common fly can, corry, tile following figures given by Pro fessor Easton may be cited: — He caught 100 flics in a kitchen, put them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about, and then examined the; water, and found that he had rais ed such a number of bacteria off that each fly averaged over 300,000. He next caught a similar number in the cow barn, and they averaged over 800,000 each, another 100 in the pig pen, and they averaged over 1,000,000 each. It may be said that when one goes into a factory or house and finds» many flies, one is immediately justi-I fled In condemning the sanitary sur roundings of such premises. One can appreciate the fact that in factories where flies abound it is next to im possible to lccep them out of the milk, and tho seeding of the milk by the bacteria which they carry must be very appreciable. The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising, as too many of us seem to think the...
CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. How much is expected of little chil dren in the way of politeness when none is ever shown them. Their lit tle legs carry them on many an er rand for you and never a "Thank you, dear," for encouragement, when the poor little heart longs to hear it, for it is so human in all of us to want approbation. Think of your little ones oftener, mothers. You are their all; they turn to you for their wants, and are often disappointed. Some children's souIb and hearts arc starv ed for want of kindness. Try what a little hribe will do instead of pun ishment; a slice of cake promised for more perseverance, or reward for ef forts to do better. A very small piece of money will make the heart of many a child joyful for a long tfme. Try to study their natures more. All chil dren cannot be managed alike any more than 'grown persons. And the present of a pet puppy or a bird— will make a good child often, when punishment fails. Love the little ones more, they have their rights,...
THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
THE FOLLY" OF FRETTING. Don't worry yourself. It won't do any. good, and you'll make yourself a'nuisance to all your friends. Worry wears more than work, and you begin to look miserable and can't eac more tlian one plateful at dinner, and you have pains in your head and can't sleep. Suppose you try and find the bright side, or try to make or do any thing but stare and talk about the blackness. Nobody ever did any good: yet by what country folkn call "smit ing and stewing," whicli msaii's keep ing one's mind in worrimout and agi tation, and wondering whether tills thing will come right or that thing fail. Go straight ahead in the even tenor of your way, and probably you will get along better than any amount of fretting would allo>v_ ;ou. 'lake things quietly. Don't be too much up set or agitated about anything. Do you know that live minutes of high exiiiicment takes as much out of a person as five hours' hard -.voile, arid ten minutes' deep grief will often, make one downright ill...
PREPARING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
PREPARING THE LAND. Much has been heard during the hist j year or two as to the value of explo sives for sub-soiling land intended to be planted with fruit trees and vines, and some authorities have made out, on paper, strong arguments in favor of their use. The lecturer in viticul ture and fruit culture at the Rose worthy College, South Australia, how ever, is doubtful if the work by such means can be performed as effective ly and economically as with teams and the ordinary implements used for the purpose. He considers that by adopting the usual method of sub soiling a more uniform layer of soil will be obtained to a depth ranging from 18 to 24 inches, and the rost of such work may be put down at be tween £4 and £6 per acre. On the I other hand, he reckons that to secure equally satisfactory results with ex-1 plosives the cost will work out at £20 I an acre. In a comprehensive article I in "The Journal of Agriculture" Mr. Laffer speaks highly of the English | ditching plough, which...
CHAPTER VIII. Discovery. I. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
CHAPTER VIII. Discovery. I. There was a close bond 'between the lovers now, and Its golden shackles were the music of their day. Hugh know that she would speak presently, and tell him the whole truth of the tragic circumstance which had made of her an outcast. He -waited confi dently for her to speak, proud that she should be his guest, grateful for every glance which fell from her eloquent eyes. To be sure, there were difficulties for them both—and not the least for midable was Geraldlne. This shrewd Scotchwoman could make little of the simple Irish girl who gave so poor a clue to her trouble. Leila had made up her mind from the first to tell Geraldlne nothing, and Bhe did not tell her less. Her ingenuity took re fuge In vague hints and odd phrases which toiled her antagonist and left her powerless. Geraldine turned to the Archdeacon and found in him a wor thy ark. "Something must be done at once," she said. The man agreed— though what the nature of that some thing should be, he wa...
WORK THE SOIL NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
WORK THE SOIL NOW. All orchard soils should be kept well worked during the summer mouths. It is very essential that these should have an abuidnnt supply or moisture during the whole of the growing season. The transpiration from fruit and foliage is considerable at any time but during tiie hot and windy weather the amount of mois ture which is required by a tree, and which is ultimately transpired from the tree, is very exceptional. Excessive transpiration is often the cause of loss of young trees and of now grafts. They are found part with a large amount of moisture, aiul are not able to retain or obtain suf ficient for their nourishment; they then very soon wither and die. Tho -oil p,round these should be kept well stirred, they should also be giveu a good straw mulch.
