Ventilated Crates Are Fine for Apple Storage [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 28 August 1929
Ventilated Crates Are Fine for Apple Storage Apples are best stored in ventilated crates . Crates stack better in storage space than either baskets or barrels and fruit cools quicker in crates than In the other containers and for other reasons keeps better . Then , too , it is usually desirable to grade arid condition the fruit just before it is put on the market and crates can be handled and emptied for resorting more conveniently than the other containers . Cellars vary considerably In their , adaptability to storage , of apples . Some are fairly satisfactory while others are poor . Cellars with furnace heat in them are quite satisfactory for storing fruit . Usually the chief fault with . cellars for storing fruit is that they cannot be properly ventilated and when a considerable quantity of fruit is taken in it is difficult to get the fruit quickly cooled . Then , too , it must be kept in mind that ground heat Is 50 degrees Fahrenheit and this is 18 or 20 degrees higher than the ...

Swine Haying Constant Access to Water Thrive It has , been demonstrated many times by experiment stations as . well as by thousands of producers that hogs do better , and make larger gains from a givenamount of feed when they have constant access to water ; Normally a-- hog drinks only small quantities at a time , but it likes to . drink often ! , ; It will drink , several times during / one feeding , period when it can run . to a self-feeder at will . When the feed is thrown on the ground or oni a feeding floor where tlie individual hog must eat in competition with a large group , it is not likely to stop . for water so long as there is grain to eat . But when it can run to a self-feeder it soon learns that there will be plenty of feed left when it returns . . Then it begins to eat more deliberately and to drink several times before it has . satisfied Its hunger . A good draft horse is a ready and willing worker ; and is neither irritable nor nervous .

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 28 August 1929
School days are here again , and school authorities and motorists associations are / turning their thoughts to the matter of eccident prevention among the school children . The average child starts to attend school at six , the age at which accidents are most prevalent , and every year brings its hundreds of little ones who have not had the banefit of safety training , and 1 who are alone on the streets every day for the first time . Children are quick to follow examples , and in the work of reducing accidents , good examples have been found to be one of the most important factors in influencing the actions of children . The school boy patrols , appointed because of capability , good deportment andi attention to studies , furnish a good example . The boys are respected by their school comrades and by the . general motoring public ; they are responsible for improving the general mo- . rale of the schools , in addition to the work they accomplish in preventing accidents .

Ground Speltz Fed to y Live Stock or Poultry [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 28 August 1929
Ground Speltz Fed to y Live Stock or Poultry Speltz is a grain that is nearer to barley , in its chemical composition than to any other of the . fann grains . It is , in fact , ; ,, quite similar \ to , barley in composition and , of course , not so ? differerit from bats and corn . v Its principal , difference ? from oats is that it does not . contain so mucli outside hull or fiber and it differs from corn in that it does contain more fiber than corn . Speltz Is a very hard grain and should be ground moderately fine before it is fed to live stock or poultry . If it can be ground rather fine , it can be used as a part of the grain feed to replace barley , corn or oats in a ration and will give about the same results as if tlie barley , corn or oats were being fed .

——— f % — PICTORIAL—mr UOLF INSTRUCTION [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 28 August 1929
——— f % — PICTORIAL—mr UOLF INSTRUCTION By VLB . Martin——— Change of Stance Will Correct Tendency to Slice THOSE who slice can And almost immediate relief by taking a stance that will make It extremely awkward for the golfer to pull the arms in . That is what causes the club head to come . across the ball , the . prime reason for a slice . Advance the left foot , or If you like , pull the right foot back about 8 inches , thereby making ! t possible for tbe club head to come onto the ball from the Inside of the line . Naturally the club will continue on over the line and most likely will bring about a hook which Is just the opposite from a slice . The bands , of course , can control to some extent the slice , but it is not so easily done as In the case of the stance . This makes a path for the clubhead , while the position of the hands only attends to the turning over of the club .
