Sheep Sheds and Yards. Their Design and Construction [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915

Sheep Sheds and Yards. Thoir Design and Construction One of the chief requirements of many of the small llock owners of to-day, says the sheep and wool expert iu a new bulletin of the Agricultural Department, is a suit able shed in which to have their sheep shorn. While some have >jone carefully into this matter, others have never thought it worthy or consideration. The splendid ac comodation provided by many small breeders for the shearing of their flocks and the treatment of tneir clips is in striking contrast to Hie dirty and slovenly conditions i.nder which others are content to have their sheep and wool handled. Very often a badly-lighted, poorly ventilated, tumble-down old strtic-1 Uire. in no way conducive to the health of those carrying out the work or of the sheep that are being shorn is used fot "Ibe purpose. Frequently a stable, barn, or some other outbuilding is utilised, the sheep being shorn amidst an ac cumulption of straw, fragments of twine, and other matter whic...

Crossbreeding for Lambs Value of the Second Cross. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915

Crossbreeding for Lambs Valuo of tho Second Cross. Advocating crossbreeding for sbeep for lamb and mutton pro duction before one of the branches of the Agricultural Bureau, the I sheep and wool expert sai.l the ex- i periments that had been proceeding at several of the Department's ex periment farms confirmed the im pressions formed in the earlier stages of that important work that the Lincoln cross was somewhat late in maturing, and consequently the lambs were not so far advanced at weaning time as some of the earlier breeds. He considered that the best age for marketing the Lincoln was from is to Jl months, and it would perhaps pay to take two years' wool off the sheep be fore marketing, in view of the fact that the wool was of a very pro fitable class. For an early maturing line in the first cross lie favored-the liorder Leicester ram, the lamb being a valuable one at the ten-months' stage. The fleece was hardly so profitable as that of the Lincoln x Merino, but what the Border L...

The Peace Flower. - * " A CHRISTMAS STORY, 1 By ANNIE S. SWAN. Copyright. (Published by special arrangement.) The short, sharp rays o' a winter sun at its early setting, made a mo mentary glow in the I.oiik Gallery at ■\Vych Coorabe, as Helena Travers, private secretary to Lady Wycherley. entered It from the far end. It was the afternoon of December LM, an hour or so later it would be Christmas Eve. The far end of the Lotip Gallery was connected with the old part of the house, which held all the ser vants' quarters, and also certain nursery and schoolroom accommoda tion long out of use. Miss Travers had had the smaller schoolroom for her private sitting room when she came first to Wyeh Coombe, but of late, since her em ployer had taken the whim to have more of her companionship, she had had less solitary leisure.

The Festive Season. (By Rosaland). Although the coming Christmas cannot be \he Christmas of other years, still there arc elements left that require to be dealt with. As the weeks and months fly by we recognise more forcibly the, urgent need for carc and economy! during the excessive stress of these appalling times. Most of us have brothers, relatives or friends lighting the hardest fight imaginable under the most heart breaking conditions, and as day succeeds day and the year draws nearer and nearer to its close, it is to these brave fellows our thoughts are speeding. Everyone is saving every penny they can spare to buy comforts to scud our brave men. Kvcn. Christmas holidays are quite out of the question for numer ous families this year, but I know of dozens of people who arc quite able to go away if they wish but who arc staying in town all the vacation, so that they can save the money to buy warm clothing and nourish ing things to send to the men in the trenches.

Seed Advances. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

Seed Advances. From time time warnings have been issued by the Lands, depart ment to tanners who have obtained advances under the Seed Advances Act. Notwiths'anding these warn ings, liowe\er, several cases have come under the notice of the de partment in which the grower has forwarded his wheat and attempted to sell it in the name of another party, this being done manifestly for the purpose of defeating the (ioverniiient's claim under the lien. Considering the special effort made by the Government to assist farmers in limes of need, without which as sistance they would have been en tirely helpless, such action is con sidered ungrateful and dishonest. The Act makes any misappropria tion of crop securcd under lien a criminal oH'cnce, and it is intended to make strict inquiry, and where evidence can be obtained legal action will follow.
