Honest John. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
I : Honest John. i George Carter, a very just man, carrying on business in a small vil lage, found it necessary one day to leave his establishment to the sole charge of 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 wordB:— "Well, John, ever you are in doubt, quote a text to yourself, and you will find great help from it in your dealings." He had not heen gone long before a lady walked into the shop and ask ed to see some shawls. John, pulling one out from . under the counter, asked her how she liked it, stating that the price was half a 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, stated the price to be five shillings. Still she was not satisfied, so, fetching an other one, also out of the same box, he asked her how she would like that at ha...
MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
MORAL REFLECTIONS. Conceit loses a man more friends and gains him more enemies ttran any other foible, perhaps vice, in the world. It makes him harsh to his in feriors, and disrespectful to htB 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. 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 Btlles than expect the ladles to alter their styles. We cannot too soon convince our selves how easily we may be dispens-1 ed with in the world. We think that we alone are the life of the circle in which we move; in our absencc we fancy that life will come to a gener al pause; and, alas, the gap that we leave is scarcely perceptible, so quick ly is it filled! The whole story of earthly exist ence is one of compen...
IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. The value of permanent pasture is often prejudiced by the presence in it of a large number of 'weeds. Not only is the thick growth of the nour ishing grass hindered, but also 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 ture 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 I use must often be assisted by other means. Sorrel Is caused 'by sourness of the soil through want of ventilatioD and drainage, and a deficiency of plant food, especially lime. The reason why fertilisers work in this 'beneficial way is that moBt 'Weeds flourish in soils poor in the mineral constituents, lime, phosphate and potash. These good plant foods do not agree with weeds, while, ...
ANTICIPATE DISEASES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
ANTICIPATE DISEASES. ThiB is the seaBon when the poultry house and poultry yard should be 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. I It will pay to go over the poultry I 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 Ib 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.
Diplomacy. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
Diplomacy. Sunday passed. Tuesday rolled around, and sull his tall torm did not loom in tiie vestibule wlien the cuckoo clock was douuding eight. Thursday he came, and the beautiful girl was burning with wrath. "So this is the way you neglect me," she hissed. "What have you to say tor yourself? Why didn't you come?" "1 couldn't," faltered the young man. "I had the dyspepsia, and the doctor told me not to come." "What! The doctor told you not to coine to see me because you had dyspepsia?" "Well, he told me to keep away froai alt sweets." 1 he next moment she had him seat ed on the couch telilng him he was the nicest young man in the world. Mother: Johnny, you said you'd been to Sunday school. Johnny (with a far-away look) Yes, mamma. Mother: How does it happen that your hands smell of fish? Johnny: I carried home the Sunday school magazine and the outside page is all about Jonah and the whale. First Hen: What a ridiculously giddy creature that young Miss Dork ing is. | Second Hen: Oh...
FRIGHTENING COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
FRIGHTENING COWS. I Cream is easily frightened away. The least sbock to the cow before ! milking time and she shows the ef fect of the start by a reduced return. Then there is the changes of wea ther. More is known of this, per haps, than in regard to the shocks. After a heavy storm or a few days of rain the farmer quickly notices the result. Most of these drawbacks can be provided against. Then there is the treatment in the yards and pad docks. Strangers in the yards will make a difference to the yield of the most nervous of the animals. It does not seem to be made up again in sub sequent milkings. Cows should be treated gently. Keep the strangers away from the yards, especially if they are dressed in gay colors. Every time a cow snorts in fear some cream has gone. Dogs are a standing dan ger, especially if they are used to heel up the animals at milking time. The man who persists in using a dog is very foolish. Often one sees a boy on a pony, whip in hand, dog to help, driving the...
UTENSILS FOR RIPENING CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
UTENSILS FOR RIPENING CREAM. The most suitable utensiis In which to ripen cream sati3£actorily are those made o£ glazed earthenware or enam elled iron. This kind of vessel can be cleaned easily, and will not In jure Lue cream. Tin or galvanised vessels are acted upon by the acid in the cream, and thus they become tainted with a kind of metallis flavor.
THE REJECTED COW. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
THE REJECTED COW. At present there is nothing to pre vent the rejected cow from tin cling its way into an auction yard, or even into a clearance sale, to tie again the subject of disappointment to another farmer 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. Uncier a better system the animal would be fattened for beef as soon as itB 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 be automatically sealed the moment it is weighed in the balance and found wanting. Cow-testing has row fortunately become so general throughout the State that farmers would be well advised to introduce tne rule that at all sales an authen ticated milking record should be pro duced with each cow offered for sale....
COWS HARD TO MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
COWS HARD TO MILK. There are two methods or treating tile nuru-iniiking cow. one is to use teat piugs or uiuuers. They are merely piugs rnuue so that tney may ue inserted m tne enil oi tne teat, wnere tney remain between mUiung periods. The reason a cow mims nard is because tne sphincter muscle, umca contracts tne enu ot the teat, its rigid. Tne teat piuga remaining in tne teat between milking nours Uave a tendency gradually to distend and dilate this muscle in such a way that the cow eventually becomes easy to milk. The second method is to cut the teats, thus weakening the sphincter muscle This ib accomplished by a icai-spiitter, an instrument cnat is in serteu luto the teat. By pressing the end, small Knives are pressed out in such a way that when the teat-split ter is withdrawn the muscle is sever eu. There is really no reason why one should utilise his time with hard milkers when by use of these inex pensive instruments they miy be ren dered easy milkers. One precaution that is ...
WHEN TESTING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
WHEN TESTING MILK. The apparatus for testing milk should be kept on a lead-covered table, as the acid used in carrying out the Gerber test has not any effect I upon lead. If any sulphuric acid gets ! spilled on wood, the wood gets burn | ed up. Always keep the stopper in I the sulphuric acid bottle, otherwise ! the acid will absorb the moisture from the air, and thus become weak ened.
PRUNING CITRUS TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
PRUNING CITRUS TREES. Many people differ considerably in their opinions as to the proper way in wluch citrus treeB should he pruned, i'he majority persist in the belie! that these trees require only to be thinned out and have the dead wood removed, uluch depends upon the construction placed upon such statements. If, as is generally the caBe, such an expres sion conveys the idea o£ merely cut ting out the dead wood and thinning parts of the tree where the foliage is very dense, it does not go. far enough. An orange tree bears the greater part of its crop on the outside -..muiies, and while plenty of light and air aro needed in the interior of tho trees, this does not imply a neces sity for hollowing it out, so as to ■ea.ve 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 bo well spaced and well lighted, other wise it will becomo starved and barren, making it useless, and...
CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. The carrot, which is not grown so ' extensively as it might be with advan tage. resembles in composition tlie turnip and mangold, but It is much more concentrated than the former, as it, contains from 14 to 20 per cent, of dry nutritive matter against about 10 in the turnip. It nourishes best in deep loamy soils, not too wet, or the carrots are liable to rot, and not very dry, or the growth of tlie root is cramped. The soil must be deeply cultivated to per mit the long-penetrating root full power of development. The ground should be well manured. Half-rotted stable manure, applied in the auiumn at tho rato of twenty loads to the acre, is a good prepara tion. The requirements of the carrot for a liberal supply of plant food are so great that, in addition to the dung, it can utilise with advantage a supple mentary dressing of readily soluble chemical fertilisers. 'The application of 3cwt. superphosphate, 26 per cent, soluble, and Vfeowt. of sulphate of pot ash,...
CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. j One of the strongest objections to country life by those who Jive in cities is that the conveniences of the farm home are few, and that the work of the housewife is made a much greater hardship than it is in the cities. This | Is, as a rule, the case. The ordinary | farm home has not t' e labor-lighten ing improvements of the city home. There is no plumbings in the house by which the luxury of the bathroom can be had, no running water, no sew age system, heating is done by stoves instead of furnaces, and the whole plan of the house is to increase the steps of the good housewife rather than to lessen them. Now, this is not as it should be. The farmer and his wife should hava as many of the luxuries of life as may be possible, and it is possible to ar range the house of the farm so that many of the necessities of the city house may be had. Recently equipped farm homes are usually better equip ped than are those o£ several yeaiB ago. This is by reason that...

DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914
DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. under usual conditions, the cow yard is a serious Handicap to good uaixy products.
