THE REJECTED COW. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

THE REJECTED COW. At present there is nothing to pre vent the rejected cow from finding its way into an auction yard, or even into a clearance sale, to be again the subject of disappointment to another tanner until he similarly gets rid of it. This can go on until through sheer age the cow disappears from the dairy farm, after being all its life an unprofitable drag on somebody. Unuer a better system the animal would be fattened tor beef as soon as its milk-producing capacity, or rather incapacity, was discovered. Of course this immediate elimination of the unprofitable dairy cow does take place in innumerable instances, but it is obviously necessary that its fate should bej| automatically sealed the moment iO is weighed in the balance and found' wanting. Cow-testing has , tow fortunately become so generalA thronghou1!

COWS HARD TO MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

COWS HARD TO MILK. There are two methods o£ treating uie iiiu'u-wuKiug cow. one is to use teat iJiuga or dinners. They are merely piugs luaue so that tney may oe inserted in tue end 01 tlie teat, wuere tuey remain between milking penuus. the reason a cow rnukB uuiu is because tue sphincter muscie, wmca contracts tlie enu ol tue leat, is rigid. 'me teat piugs remaining m tue teat between miming nours have a tendency gradually to diBiend and dilate this muscie in such a way that the cow eventually becomes easy to milk. une seiond method is to cut the teats, thus weakening tho apnincter muscle This is accomplished by a leai-sputter, au instrument cnat is in soiceu into the teat. By pressing the euu, small knives are pressed out in such a way that when the teat-split ter is withdrawn the muscle is sever ed. There is really no reason why one should utiliso his time with hard milkers when by use of these inex pensive instruments they lniy be ren dered easy miiEers. une precaution uiat is ...

PRUNING CITRUS TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

PRUNING CITRUS TREES. Many people differ considerably in their opinions as to tlie proper way in which citrus trees should be pruned. The majority persist in the beliet that these trees require only to be thinfted out and have the dead wood removed. «luch depends upon the construction placed upon such statements. II, as is generally the case, such an expres sion conveys the idea o£ merely cut ting out the dead wood and thinning parts or the tree where the foliage is very dense, it does not go lar enough. An orange tree bears the greater part of its crop on the outside ..l.uiciies, and while plenty ol light and air are needed in the Interior of the trees, this does not imply a neces sity for hollowing it out, so as to leave the main inside branches de void of foliage. Nevertheless, it is necessary that much of the inside growth should be removed, so that what is allowed to remain will be well spaced and well lighted, other wise it will become starved and barren, making it useless, an...

IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. The value of permanent pasture is often prejudiced by the presence in it of a largo number of weeds. Not only is the thick growth of the nour ishing grass hindered, but alBO nox ious weeds spoil the quality, so that it is an essential part of good culti vation to keep the pasture free from such unsatisfactory constituents. The question-^How can I keep my pas cure land free from weeds? is not an easy one to deal with. There is, how ever, no doubt that by a judicious use of chemical fertilisers much can be done. But chemical fertilisers alone will not do everything. Their use must often be assisted by other means. Sorrel is caused by sourness of the soil through want of ventilation and drainage, and a deficiency of plaut food, especially lime. The reason why fertilisers work in this 'beneficial way is that most weeds flourish in soils poor in the mineral constituents, lime, phosphate and potash. These good plant foods do not agree with weeds, while, on the...

MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

I , MORAL REFLECTIONS. Conceit loses a man more friends and gains him more enemies taan any other foible, perhaps vice, in the world. It makes him harsh to hia in feriors, and disrespectful to his bet ters. Regrets are a waste of time in every possible instance, except one. That one is the instance in which the soul entertains them thoughtfully | and humbly until they becomo valu able lessons for the future. 1 Down in Hockley they are adding extra planks to the stiles to assist the hobble skirt ladies of the village in climbing over them. It is certain ly more gallant to alter the stiles than expect the ladles to alter their styles. We cannot too soon convinoo our selves how easily we may be dispens ed with in the world. We think thut we alone are the life of the circle in which we move; in our absence we fancy that life will come to a gener al pause; and, alas, the gap that we leave 1b scarcely perceptible, so quick ly is it filled! The whole story of earthly exist ence is one of c...

Honest John. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

Honest John. i George Carter, a very just man, carrying oil business in a small vil lage, found it necessary one day to leave bis establishment to the sole | charge o£ John, his assistant, and, as usual, thinking it necessary to im press upon him the necessity o£ deal ing fairly with his customers, left him with these words:— "Well, John, u ever you are in doubt, quote a text to yourself, and you will find great help from it in your dealings." He had not been gone long before a lady walked into the shop and ask I ed to see some shawls. I John, pulling one out from under i the counter, asked her how she liked it, stating that the price was half a I crown. It was a very nice one, but being able to afford better, asked to see others. John, ready as ever, fetched an other out of the same box, and spread ing this out on the counter, atated the price to be fiv« shillings. Still she was not satisfied, bo, fetching an other one, also out of the same box, he asked her how she would like that...

ANTICIPATE DISEASES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

ANTICIPATE DISEASES. | This is the season, when the poultry , house and poultry yard, should be i cleaned carefully. Mites and other insects, as a rule, are active at this time. Nature makes them prolific, and resistant against repellants, so that they may propagate their spe cies to perpetuate themselves. | It will pay to go over the poultry ' yard and clean every nook and cor ner. Cut the weeds, burn the trash, , rake oil of the rubbish. The interior of the poultry house should be. cleaned and the walls ! sprayed. Use a strong insecticide and a fungicide. See that the perches are sprayed and disinfected. It is worth while-to white-wash the inside and paint the outside of the poultry house. This will preserve the building, making it last longer, and will afford considerable insurance against insects and disease. It may help you eradicate disease germs and / insects.

TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. | —— I i A woman of uncertain years, who looked much younger than ehe was, took the following rules as her.guide in maintaining a youthful appear ance:— Dress younger than you are. Never dress older. Never wear old ladies' clothes, no matter how old you get to be. Forget caps and wraps and shawls and easy chair gowns. Keep your figure young. You can not hope to look young if your figure is old. When you look in the looking-glE?s j gaze at yourself from the back, not .from the front. If you look old, that is the point of view from which to re alise the fact. Beware of what Kate Field called the middle-aged figure. It is round in the shoulders and hunched up in i.he belt line. There is a certain roly poly look about the woman who is older than she ought to be. Take care of your hair. Straggly hair gdes with, old age. Old people forget to shampoo, and they give up waving their locks. Don't let your hands get bony. Bony fingers belong to the aged. Keep the 1 kn...

ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS j Before building a house most per- ) sons recognise the necessity of hav ing aeflnae plan of i le strvcuiro. Comparatively few poi. :'e. however, realise the desirability ot planning the home grounds. And yet the latter may have quite as much to do with making a home as the former. In a short article it is impossible to give more than a few general princi ples. These, if considered in their proper relations to the situation of the | building and the character of the sur roundings, may lead to pleasing re sults. The location cf walks and drives should be mai'.o a rnat'er of convenience. Neither the waiits nor the drives are ornamental in them selves; hence they should not be more numerous than the uses of the daily life call for. Curved wa'tcs and drives are often more pleasing: than straight ones, especially wher* *he grounds are large. The curves, however, should be easy and natural, not short and kinky. The home grounds may be compared with a picture in...

When we state that we know no more than the Man in the Moon we are attributing the densest ignorance to that some what mythical personage; we at least credit him with being an agnostic of the purest water.
