WEANING THE FOAL. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

WEANING THE FOAL. The hardest thing to overcome in weaning foals is the actual loss of the companionship of the mother, which causes the colt to worry anil not. Horses are nervous animals, mill tho colt, being deprived o£ his "host friend," often spends iriuch time in running up and down his paddoc|i or stail, neighing, pawiug and'whimp ering in a vain effort to find an es cape which may lead at least to conl par.y of his kind, if not of his mother. To iake tlo place of his dam, , the best possible substitute is ariothe'r colt. Where a colt of the same age is not available, the use of a yearling ing arrangements are such that the yearling gets his share of the feed given. Kor the best results, it is ne cessary to keep the foal which is be ing weaned out of sight and hearing of iiie dam, as every time they see or hear each other only serves to pro long the period of fretting by reviving i heir memories. : The main point in the weaning, all tilings considered, is feeding the colt.

ALLOWANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

ALLOWANCES. All excellent idea, aiul one thai is steadily growing in favor, is the cus tom of allowing quite young girls a fixed sum for their small current ex penses, permitting full liberty in tlr> expenditure, but requiring a strict ac counting in a business-like form at stated periods. No better method could possibly be devised to teach the true value of money and instil cor rect business habits; and practical financial ability will not come amiss, whatever the future lot may be, whe ther as a wife or a member of the maiden sisterhood. Not that the mat ter of mere saving is so important, but the systematic habits formed in this particular will have an undoubted effect on all the other habits as well. There are a number of young ladies in this city, belonging to wealthy families, who manage property and with marked ability. The father of one of these presented her, on her twenty-first birthday, witli the deed of a house in the business part of the city, oil the condition that ...

"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." I.h ii possible to provide ilio feeble minded with more brain until they arc normal? Wild though the possi bility may seem to the lay mind, it ha , nevertheless, been seriously dis missed at the Congress of Medicine in Paris. Furthermore, experiments in the science which iN known as "or ganotherapy" have already been at tempted. Tliis science really consists of treat ing diseased organs with medicines made from similar organs. It is point ed ont. by medical experts that the building up or doctoring of one orgah with extracts from a similar one was practised 2000 years ago, although, of course, in a very crude fashion. It is on record that patients suffering from an atl'o tion of any particular part of their system were given the same part of an animal to eat, with the idea of repairing the local waste and dam age. 'Phils consumptives were order ed to eat sheep lungs, while for dys peptics was prescribed a diet in which the stomach of calves ranked as the chie...

THE POULTRY YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

TPJJE; POULTRY YARD. The fowls love an occasional dose of charcoal. Wheat ami oats in rotation make a good feed. Sprinkle dry ashes or dry earth un der the roosts frequently. Change the dust bath, every two weeks; it will help keep the fowls free from lice. Sprinkling the hot ashes from the coal stoves under roosts will aid in keeping the fowla free from throat and lung troubles. 'There is no advantage in allowing the poultry to tramp around in the snow. I!etter keep them confined while the weather is bad. In putting eggs aside to keep for setting care should be taken to keiv at as even a temperature as possible: they should be turned regularlv every two or three days. l;ime water is not only a good eo: rective of bowel disease, but is ahl" a good remedy for soft shelled eggs.

SECRET NAVAL CODE BOOK. Few tilings are so jealously guarded as the secret code Look of tile Uni ted States Xavv. It ia a book of sig nals- not the ordinary "wig-wag" sig nals used in the daily direction of the fleet by a commanding officer-but a code of signals to lie used solely in time of war and in the presence of an enemy. These secret code books are issued only to the executive officers of a ship, who are enjoined to protect I hem against theft by every possible means. These books are threatened not so much by the ordinary thief as by secret emissaries of other Govern ments who desire to obtain knowledge of what, the battleships would do in time of action.
