POULTRY. MATING PURE BREEDS. THE FOUNDATION STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
POULTRY. MATING PURE BREEDS. THE FOUNDATION' STOCK. There are many beginners just now in poultry keeping, for the industiy is still increasing. These probably buy eggs from an Inexperienced breeder, and have some of his best stock, but through inexperience let it quickly pink to mediocrity. Or they may buy a breeding pen, correctly mated, and as long as that pen lasts are safe enough, and breed good stock, but as soon as they are left to themselves allow the stock to deteriorate. It Is not the men who give big prices to start with who usually bring out the best birds. Fairly good stock must (says a writer in the "Farmer and Stockbreeder" Eng.) be secured to start, as so much time Is saved by so doing, but when we tee what, can be done in a few years by a breed which started from nothit'g, as can be seen in the black Wyandottes, we realise that most of what is dene in bringing out good stock is due to the breeder's individuality. There are two things necessary after having procured g...
POULTRY IN GREAT BRITIAN. AN IMPROVING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
rOtrt,TRY IX G15E.VT BRITAIN. AN IMPROVING INDUSTRY. Poultry keeping In Great Britain lias during the past'ten years Increased to a great extent, and there are mw a very large number who depend on poultry breeTIIng and rearing as the only source o £ their in', reus.-. An English writer, in dcaHng with the In dustry, expresses the opinion that, un less poultry are kept on a large scale, there are likely to be many failures unless it is combined with farming or dairying- He says:-"SmatI poultry farmers of a few acres fail because poultry is the most difficult of all stock to manage if crowded on too small space. The labor of attending to poultry is so continuous that many slack oil, even if they started with the greatest enthusiasm. To employ poultry-men Is an expensive bus!ne?s. a well trained man easily earning VO/ a week. On a poultry farm the labor bill Is kept down by train'ng youths up so that they work at moderate wa^«s for' some years, and all the thinking is done for them. Mo...
THE VALUE OF THE PUREBRED. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
THE VAUTJE OF THE PUREBRED. Tho value of pure bred fowls In comparison with tho common or cross bred birds has orten been mentioned In these columns, and I have no hesi tation in recommending: pure stock in every case. The following article on this subject Is by a writer in .an ex change. He says: "Did you ever s;ee a farmer or other person who Would not be convinced that a purebred fowl was better than a mongrel? They say that a hen is a hen, and the cheaper it may bo bought just, so much gained. There is, how ever, a vast difference between a pure bred fowl and an. ordinary mongrel barnyard fowl. In this case it Is the quality of the fowl and not the ques tion of. the cost at market price. A purebred fowl is of the greatest value, and I sliall below give a few reasons why such is the case. 1 Of course, two purebred fowls may be crossed jand the breeder obtain a bird that would be of as much value as either of the purebred ones, but what I want to say is that the old - fashioned, m...

"The Lone Hand" [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
" The Lons Hand " Sensational disclosures of tho sweat ing of women "homo workers" in Sydney are inado in tho March issue of '. Tho Lone Hand." The article, the first of a series entitled "The Hidden Shame," exposes the shocking mtoa of pay made by certain garment factories for work given out, and the excessively long hours that tho ."homo workors" have to work in ordor to make onough for a bare subsistence. It is a curions commentary upon tho labor legislation of this country that such conditions should bo allowed to exist; and tho wide publicity givon to this subjoct by " Tho Lone Hand" should certainly lead to legislation protecting these un organised " homo workers " from tho evils that thoy seem unable to oscapo. Tho first article doals hilly and con vincingly with tho rates of pay and tho j treatment'given by White Australian employers.

THE VINEYARD UNFERMENTED WINE. HOW IT IS MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
ITHE VINEYARD; XJXFEUSIENTED WINE. HOW IT IS MADE. The preparation of unfermcnted wine was dealt with some time ago by the Vltlcultural expert ol New South Wales In the "Agricultural Gazette." He wrote : " Under the climatic influences that exist In most parts of Australia grape juice soon sets up alcoholic farmcnta tlon, which is to be guarded against by every means possible if unfermcnted wine is to be made. " It will, therefore, be necessary to instal a proper pasteuriser and filter, whereby not only the yeast and other micro-organisms contained in it are promptly destroyed, but which will also prevent the inquination of harmful moulds from the atmosphere, and from tools and vessels, .employed in the manu lacture. A Alter working under pres-' sure is indespensable, although other appliances may be done without." GKAPE JUICE. "The grapc-juicc should, in the firs', instance be subjected to a temperatur of 135 degrees Fahr., for about, tw.-nty' minutes. In the absence of a props; pa...
BEEKEEPER. HONEY GRANULATION. HOW TO RE-LIQUEFY. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
BEEKEEPER. HONEY Glt.VNUTiATION. HOW . TQ, RE-LIQUEFY. The candying or. solidifying of honey has among the uninformed, always been taken as a sign of the adultera tion of the bee-product. The con sumer of honey must be taught that candying is a sign, not of adulteration, but of purity. At the same time, It would be asOyc" that on every label directions be Driefly printed showing how to reli(|Uefy honey when candied. The best course to ptffsue in lique fying honey is, whether it is tins or bottles, to set the receptacle on ii piece of wood so that the bottom does not touch the bottom of the saucepan or boiler. Pour in coid water to rise nearly to the neck of the bottje or top of the tin, then apply the heat gradu ally. By the time a temperature of 1&0 degrees has been obtained, the honey should have all become liquid, and it will not have been harmed In the slightest degree.. It is best, when liquefying has com menced to gently stir the contents, so that the, work, is quicker...
A COAT OF PAINT. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
A COAT OF PAINT. ; It is extraordinary whnt a coat of paint will do both in hiding defects and' assisting the preservation of woodwork, and an able assistant 'in these matters is a piece of putty.. What about the farm implements?/- Arc,they all clean and in the pink of condition? Let every farmer answer the question for himself, but implements cost money, and are worth looking after. He is-a poor man, Indeed, . who cannot at a pinch handle a paint ' brush, and a worse still who cannot clean-up an im plement ready for the painter.: Paint does not cost much, neither does the putty, which is capital for filling-up crcviccs in woodwork, and after, the overhauling tho implement,"not only looks pounds the better, but it will last longer and save over and over again tho value of the time spent in doing it up. "Ilnllo, Tom, where did you get that black eye?" "Oh, It was only a lovor's qunrrnl." "Lover's quarrel! Why, your lady-lovo didn't give you that, did she?" "Oh, no; It was hor other l...
