WATER SUPPLY FOR STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 January 1914
WATER SUPPLY FOR STOCK. An old friend of our London corres pondent, the loading dairy! armor and breeder of Ayrshire cattle in tlio West of Scotland, writes to a local paper on this important subject which, ho says, receives too little attention from the stock owners: — So long as an animal will drink it, no water is considered too foul for horses or cows. Not only is this ne glect on the part of stock owners res ponsible for many cases of colio in hor ses, but many othor diseases also aro directly traceable to impuro water. Au unlimited supply of good, pure water is essential to the health of all animals used for farm purposes. Pools formed from surface drainage, where largo quantities of organic matter aro car ried into them, and wells or pools contiguous to farm yards or manure heaps aro specially to bo avoided. Water from good tanks or wolls, run ning streams, and properly construc ted pools is usually good, but too much care cannot bo taken in this matter. The qjmnbity of watei...

Women and the Church [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 January 1914
Women and the Church It is easy for a schoolmistress to lose her sense of humour aud propor tion and to acquire an exaggerated idea of lior own importance, as, wrapt 1 in her mantlo of authority, and seated j at her largo raised desk dominating rows of smaller ones, she wields des potic. sway over a kingdom of young people. She is indeed monarch of all she surveys. And in that small aloof world, which sets the limits to her life, it is easy for her to lose sight ol' that bigger world which most of her pupils will presently enter, somo few only passing into her own. It is easy for her to fall under the numb ing spell of the Machine, which has moulded her during the plastic years of. early youth into the pattern ap proved by those majestic bureaucrats, men and women, who control educa tion, and aro apt to think that to them alone wisdom and oleamess of vision are vouchsafed. It is easy for her to bo dazzled by tho glamour of red tapo and routine, for these clearly de line her path. Tn...
LAKESIDE VILLA DRAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 January 1914
LAKESIDE VILLA DRAMA. In defence .of liis act in shooting and killing a neighbor within a Gorman vil la, a middle-aged man recently told a story as strange as anything appearing in a criminal fiction. The dead man was Leo Schweyer, a well known Stuggart merchant. Schwe yer was shot at his residence by a man of independent means named Mackloy, jvlio owns a villa on the Neberlinger See, a branch of Lake Constance. Mackloy states that ho was on terms of intimate friendship with Soluvcyer, and was particularly attached to one of tho Iattcr's daughters, whom he, a bach elor of 50, had promised to mako his solo heir, Schweyer, who was alono in his villa, his family being in Stug gart, invited liini to drink with him a bottlo or two of wine, which lie noticed was of upusual potency. When a considerable quantity of this lieady li quor bad been consumed, the host in duced his guest, "by way of a joke," to write to dictation and sign a will leaving all his property to tho girl already mention...
Dairy Records [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 January 1914
Dairy Records J. A. ltuddick, Dairy and Conl Storage Commissioner, Ottawa, Can ada, writes:— "Unless tlio figures aro actually be fore ono, the variations in produotion found in the same herd seem almost incredible. For instance, in three 1 Ontario herds, the difference in yield between the host and the poorest cow runs actually at 8100, 9100 and 10,900 lbs of milk; the extremes in individual cows are 3090 and 17,015 lbs. f|jis proves that neither an occasional weighing or testing of a sample,> nor a hasty reckoning of a herd's,, average yield can possibly give any measure of justice citnor to the abundant 01 to tho eeonomioal producer, so thin, the knowledge requisite to building up a good herd has still to bo sought, lliat knowledge can be found in dairy re cords."—(Circular D. and C. S. No. 7.) An increase of GOO lbs of milk per annum or 2 lbs a day over a milking period of 300 days from eaoli of the cows in this Slate would yield over another half million pounds sterling to o...

Household Hints To remove dust from ridges ou the door pauels, use a soft, dry nail brush. Tho Kitchen Table: If your kitchen tablo is not a good color, dip'a half a lemon in dry whiting and rub the table with this tlio way of the grain. Ijeavo for about fivo minutes, then scrub and well rinse, and you will be delighted with tho result. To Clean Stono Steps: Tho common method of cleaning them with liearth stono or caked whiting not only gives them a smeary appearance, but waslios oii' with a shower of rain.

Manners of the English [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 January 1914
Manners of the English Tho manners of the English are, ol courso, notoriously bad, -whether they live in the country or in tho town; but 1 do not tknik tnat any one class is worse than another. On tho whole, 1 am inclined to agreo with Mr. Ste phen Reynolds and with Mr. Chester ton, that tho poor are more ceremonial and courteous than tho rich. They are not, it is true, gifted with the gra ciousness of the Spaniard or the Bre ton peasant. English mechanics or labourers do not struggle with their bag of tools held in their hands, in order to take off their cap to their fellow-worker and to bid him "good morning," as one sees workmen do on tho Danish higliroad. Nor can they refuso a tip—a rare occurrence, I ad mit—with tho graoiousness of tho Erencli workmen who helped Steven son with his canoe on his Inland Voy age.—E. E.

ON GOLDEN WINGS. (By W. Howell Poole). CHAPTER XIX (Continued). Ho discovered Charley, first, stretched full length upon the ground, listJossiy Suffing away circular wreaths of smoke is ptdn resting on his hands, his el bows on the grass, his attention cent red on a Spanish gipsy, whoso face ffias so completely covered with h.air, aa to leave only his eyes, and tho extrcmety | of his noso visible.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 January 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.J" Something like an American inva sion has taken place in this oity. At tho theatres, most of the "turns" are' supplied hy people from that country; ragtime has taken possessison of the homes, and tho public places where mu sic is made; and tho millionaire-oon duoted basebali players have been loom ing large, not only as exponents of the gainu that is to the American what football is to tho Australian; bnt as the lions of social and civic circles". But like the motor racing that was recently similarly "boosted," baseball failed to arouse any enthusiasm, and if tho ob jct of bringing a big party of players who are said to receive annual " re tainers" running into many thousands of dollars, to this country, was, as al leged, simply to promote understanding, of and interest in tho game, the men behind the movement are due for a Jot of disappointment. Plenty of pecplo went to see the games on tho first day. Tliey were certainly rewarded ...
The Passing of the Poser [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 January 1914
The Passing of the Poser Tliero are no posers on the grand, scale now. Uur musicians have short hair and play golf. Authors cannot bo distinguished from ordinary men. Art students are abandoning their amazing clothes. Even poets have given up poetical looks, and instead of writing pretty fancies worry us with poems of the outspoken natural school. Music is in tweeds, Literature is in navy blue, and poetry is in a bowler hat. Apparently there is no chance of any return of affectation. The world becomes more natural every day, and eveiy hour some neglectod pose dies a natural death. There aro no startling and picturesque figures. The glittering Whistler was the fast or the artistic masters of pose, the last man willing to spend an hour before a looking-glass, tho last man—to uso his own word—who could bo called ■amazing." For now it is bad form to bo amazing, and everyone is ex pected to bo as insignificant as pos sible. Tho only affectation 1 ft is the ait'ectation of being natural. ...

ENSILAGE—THE FAVORITE FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914
ENSILAGE—THE FAVORITE FODDER (By "Agriculturalist" in "New Zealand Dairyman.") That the feeding of oows is one o 1 the most important matters connected with dairying, no on© oan gainsay, liut of the many foods in general use, 1 will at present touch on only one—ensil age. No argument, to my mind, could ho adduced against the use ol ensilage, and any oonteution to justify the setting aside of fodder of Buch para mount importance would not hold ground in the face of practioal experi ence on tho dairy' farm. Ensilage contains no substance that would in any way tend to interfere fwith the organ isms of the cow, while, it oontains to little acid that its color is not objec tionable. It can bo made when hay cannot, and even this is an important point, espeoially in Southland and Tar anaki whero tho weather is so variable. It may not supersede hay-making, b u that is probably because of the variety of uses which tho colonial farmer puts hay to. Regarding the preparation or ensilage, I wish...

NEW PROCESS FOR PRESERVING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914
NEW PROCESS I'OR PRESERVING MILK. . To tha already known methods preserving milk another has been add ed by two Italian physioiaus. Their method is to preserve inilk by means of'an atmosphere of carbonic acid gas, uhder pressure. Tho milk remains 'unaltered for several days, both in its physical and chemical cnaraoters, and in' the biological constituents, the fer ments. . Some of the germs present are killed, while others liave their de- ' veloptnent arrested. By this method uncooked milk oan he kept for eight or.twelve days at a temperature of ' UL2 deg. to 14 deg. 0., while boiled "milk ' 13 preserved indefinitely. The gas is produced with little or no trouble. The inventors claim for this method a solution of the question oi infant feeding. Milk preserved m this manner ought certainly to be su perior to milk sterilised by heat, ow ing to the fact that milk can be kept by "this process for a considerable pe riod with all pathogenic germs absent, while its biochemical functions re...
