CRUSHING REBUKE. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 21 January 1914

CRUSHING REBUKE. Ill the early days of railways, on some of the lines smoking was not allowed at all, either in the trains or oil tho station buildings. One day a station-master of a large ; station, a man noted for his conceit and pomposity, descried a gentleman pacing the platform with a cigar in ilia mouth. Ho at once accosted the offender and requested him forthwith to stop smoking. The gentleman took no notice of this command, but con tinued to walk, emitting a silvory cloud. Tho station-master asked him to stop smoking more peremptorily than before; but still the owner of the Havana maintained a provoking dis regard. A third time the order was repeated, accompanied with the threat that if the obstinate sinner did not obey he would be handed over to the tender mercies of the porters. The stranger took no more heed than before, so at last the official, completely losing his temper, pulled the cigar out of the smoker's mouth and flung it away. This violent act produced no more cf...

A WEIRD PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 21 January 1914

A WEIRD PROCESSION. Five hundred snake-charmers, sounding weird notes on their pipes, formed the unusual yet picturesque procession that followed to his grave Hatch Sarak, a man o£ big renown in bis business, who died in terrible .agony as the result of a cobra bite "received while practising his profes sion in the neighborhood of Garden .Reach, India." "Guru," or god, he had become dub bed by the people amongst whom he lived, such was his influence over poisonous reptiles. His services were sought recently by a neighbor who had missed many fowls from his com pound. Going at dusk one day, the snake-charmer discovered a cobra of unusual size amongst the birds, so formidable, in fact, that he postponed his attempt to capture it until day light, when he was successful in se curing it. Instead of dispatching the snake at once, he took it to the local bazaar for the edification of the natives. On attempting to extract its fangs, the cobra wriggled free and darted at its captor, who was b...

PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 21 January 1914

PIGS FOR BACON. Certain modifications in the metli ods of lulling and preparing pit-:; for tiacon have been necessary iu recent years to meet the demands ot the consumer and curer. Among these has been the movement iu favor o£ less fat and more leau, what is pre ferred now being a tasty, mild-ilavor ed, somewhat leau bacon, which is finely streaked with lat and of firm texture. it is occasionally found in dealing with carcases for either pork or ba con that there exists an abnormal condition in the texture of fibro ol lue liesh. It is soft, yields to pres sure, is flabby, and possesses an un natural greasiuess. This class of llesh invariably cures badly, aud pro duces inferior bacon. Observation has taught that it is mainly due to the various classes of food being used in improper proportions. Further experience has shown that this influence is more pronounced dur ing winter. Low temperatures exert a change upon the naturo of the body fat. Animals exposed to cold are prone to produc...

SMOKING WHILE MILKiNG. Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. H any acci dent occurs by which a pail-full or partly full of milk becomes dirty, do not try to remedy this by straining, but reject all this milk, ami rinse the pail. We remember ono day, v. hen on a visit, seeing a milking hand smoking a pipe. Suddenly, he spolte to the cow, and the pipe fell from the man's mouth into the bucket. He made one grab into the milk-bucket, put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking! Then, what about the ash from a pipe or cigarctte fall ing about everywhere?

GRIT A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 21 January 1914

GRIT A NECESSITY. A lack of this causes a slow supply of eggs, and if fowls liavo not the materials for digesting their food, it is impossible for them to get on, for the proper nutriment must be extract ed from the food for the production of eggs. Oyster shell grit for lime, as well as sea shell or pebbly beach grit, is best for the purpose, as it is very hard and sharp, and a small quantity goes a long way. It should he kept in a trough in "the run for the fowls to help themselves to.

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 21 January 1914

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? Wliy, asks an expert, do we import citrus fruit from Italy'.' We nave conditions here favorable to the growing of first class fruit. Wo can produce citrus fruit here equal to what we receivo from Italy, it pro per cultural methods are practised. The soil is here, and tho climatic condition. Tho Italian -,1'ruit has a thin skin, tho correct flavor, and its keeping quality is world-renowned. Vet some of our locally-produced oran ges will compare favorably with theirs, but to oust the imported ar ticles growers should endeavor to produce more of this class. The thiu skinned varieties are just as easily grown as the inferior types, and, as far as flavor is concerned, many of our up-to-date growers produce fruit every bit as good as that imported— better in fact, but the drawback is that we do not get enough, nor does it always combino with tho commor cially-essential thin skin.
