CROP-BOUND PULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 5 June 1914
OROP-BOUND PULLETS. A correspondent states tlint she line a number of youtig pullets which li ive their crops full and hard that they mope about for some days and die. She asks the cause and cure. 'lliese pullets are evidently crop-bound. There are sevcrnl causes of this trouble. The birds may not have proper grit. When good hard grit is not available, the food cannot be properly masticated, and gradually forms a hard lump in the crop. On the other hand the trouble may be caused by tough long grass or some other indigestible food lodging in the crop. The usual remedy is to pour a few teaspoonfuls of warm water dowu the throat, and gently knead the crop. After a couple of hours repeat the warm water and the kneading to loosen the obstruction. This kneading should be done carefully and gently, and a second dose of oil may be necessary. Feed on soft food for a couple of days. If this treatment does not remove the trouble, it may be necessary to open the crop in the following manner:-Pu...

The '.'Scientific American" recently stated that as far as tliq United States aro concerned, in 1911 threo companies alone made upwards of 100,000 engines ranging in size from 2 to 15 h.p. Eighty,-seven manufac turers reported that they had sold since starting in business 655,000 en gines, while seventy-six firms report ed early in 1912 that their require ments for the year were at least | 705,000 engines. ! As nearly as can be determined there are 750 manufacturers of gaso line and oil engines in the United States, and fully 500 of these make a specialty of farm engines. Their _ output must be at least half a mil lion-engines a year. It is safe to a« j stime that there are about 2,000,000 gasoline and oil engines on American farms at the present time.

Crisp Toasts. A rather cynical toast runs thus : "Women-she requires no eulogy ; she speaks for herself." A gallant young man, in the same festal circumstances, referred to one member of the sex he eulogised as "a delectable dear, so sweet that honey would blush in her presence and molasses stand appalled." At the marriage supper of a deaf and dumb couplo one guest, in the speech of the evening, wished them "unspeakable bliss." A writer of comedies was giving a banquet in honour of his latc3t work, at which a jovial igucst gave the toast : "Tho author's very good health I May he live to be as old as his jokes." At another gathering- were toasted "The Bench and the Bar I If it were not for the bar, there would be little use for the bench." As pithy was the following toast, proposed at a shoemakers' dinner : 'Otay we have all the women in the country to shoe, and all the men to boot."
