SEASONABLE; HINTS. .Tho prlco of eggs. for., the next four months will bo high, and poultry keep ore should -pay close attention to their early hatched pullets,, feeding them liberally to induce laying; Regularity In the, matter of feeding poultry Is one of tho main requirements In egg-production. The meals should bs given at the same Jibur of each day, and the diet should bo of sufficient quantity to ensure' every fowl .having just ns much ns It neOds. . Overfeeding hinders o£g production instead of holping it. The present is a very suitable time for making all necessary ropairs to tho fowl houses and runs. All buildings should receive a thorough overhauling, so as to have everything In readiness for the comii\g season.

Fattening Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 6 March 1908
Fattening Horses. In ono of the largo feeding: establish ments In Western Canada, the following method is practiced:-The horseo are purchased, their feet are floated, and thoy are all put In tho barn and fed gradually. Great care must be taken for a few days to avoid colic. It seems most profitable to feed grain about five times per day, owing to tho fact that the stomach of a horso being propor tionately smaller than tho stomach of a cow he needs his feed In smaller quan tities and oftener. Tho hay is placed In racks so that tho horses may havo ac cess to it at all times. They are given all the water they will drink twice, a day. Tho following method is used in feeding the grain:-Corn Is given at 5 o'clock In the morning, water at 7, the hay racks filled at 9 o'clock, when they are also given oata and bran, the proportion being two-thirds bran and one-third oata. Then at 12 they are fed corn again, at 3 In the afternoon oats and bran, and the hay racks are refilled; at 4 o'clock th...
THE POULTRY YARD. COMMONSENSE AND POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 6 March 1908
THE POULTRY YARD. GOMMONSENSE Alft) POULTRY. - The success or failure of the poultry; business, probably to a larger extonr than most other, lines, of work,, depends on, the close attention to the email de tails connected therewith (says a writer In tho "American Poultry Journal").

FARM AND FIELD. Concrete Floors. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 6 March 1908
FARM AHB FIELB. Concrcto Floors. No substance is so suitable for floors for farm buildings as concrete. It can bo easily kept clean, and is free from all smells likely to bo troublesome on stable floors. The difficulty often ex perienced Is to lay them In the best manner, so that they will stand the rough usage which _thcy arc likely to get. The following is the best method to mix, and lay conrete:-Measure the floor to bo laid, and find the superficial | area In yards. Then, having decided on tho: thickness, multiply tho area by the thickness, in order to obtain the cubic yards of concrete- required. An easy example of this may be useful. A floor tea yards long by five yards wide equals fifty superficial yards. If laid with Cln. of concrete, It would bo fifty yards by Gin., equalling eight and one third yards of concrete. The firsl pro vision to bo made is the "aggregate," QS it is called, of broken bricks, stones, and sharp sand (the coarser tho sand tho better). Any old bricks or ...

FRUIT-SORTING TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 6 March 1908
FRTJIT-SORTING TABLE. . In commercial-orcharding It;is gener ally most economical to have picking and packing work going on concur rently, says a United States bulletin. This saves putting the apples on the ground and having to handle them again. A gang of pickers will empty their picking bags and baskets directly on to a portable sorting table placed be tween the rows on which they are work ing. This table is placed on low truck wheels and has a single swingle-tree, so that a horse can move it to any desired point as work proceeds. An illustration of this kind of sorting table is here shown. i should be made large enough to hold not less than about six cases of fruit. The rear bolster Is higher than that at the open end, so that culls can be rolled out. A lonp, heavy plank Is placed or> the ground on each side of the table, on which i the barrels are set for filling. The sorters pick the apples from the table Into padded wicker bas kets. The fruit Is sorted into two grades, firs...
First Agricultural Station. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 6 March 1908
First Agricultural Station. Tho oldest agricultural station in the world is that which now exists at Ro thamstead, Horrtfoxictahlrc, England. It [ was commenced by tho late Sir John | Bennett Lawes in 1813. The long un I broken continuity of the investigations carried on there is one remarkable fea ture, while the gift of L»100,000 by Sir John Lawes for their -permanent con tinuance accounts for the Importance of tho work. Two main lines of inquiry have been followed, the one relating to plants, tho other to animals. In the former case the method of procedure has been to grow some of the more import ant crops each year separately year after year for many years iri succession, on tho same land, without manure, with farm-yard manure, and ivlth*a great variety of chemical manures. Amongst the field experiments, there is nothing of greater Interest than the field in which wheat has been grown for more than fifty years in succession without' manure, with farm-yard manure, and with artifi...
KAISER'S STATUESQUE POSE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 6 March 1908
KAISER'S STATUESQUE POSE. There is a popular Idea that the Kaiser Is a tall, commanding figure with broad shoulders and swelling chest. He gives this Impression when he Is on a horse, and sits up straight like a verit able ramrod, the 'personification of all that was dear to his great ancestor, Frederick the Great. But the moment he dismounts and stands among his fel low-men his medium stature Is appar ent. and he is brought down to the level of ordinary mortals. -"Town and Coun try," New Yorlc.

BRACING A POST. The accompanying illustration shows the best and a wrong way of bracing a ' post or polo by means of a guy wire. I The majority of formers drive the stake as seen by the dotted lines, which Is not as effectivo as when the stake is driven at the same angle as the wire, .represented at the left of the figure. This , latter method is used in all public works, as it is the proper way to get the stake >vhere there is any strain. It will hold far more weight than the old style, as shown by the dotted lines.
What the Eyes Tell. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 March 1908
What tho Eyos Toll. All animals that liavo bluo eye's are moro or less hard of hearing. This ia generally known in tho case of cats, and it is equally true of horses, wild creatures, and human beings. It is an instanco of co-relation, as Darwin termed tho mysterious law. Blno or green or grey eyes havo a narrower range of expression tlian dark eyes, I'orhaps, indeed, tho fair do not respond so quickly to the im pulse of tho moment; of more sedato or cooler temperament, they cannot meet a word or a thought half-way and Hash hack tlw answer instantly. I3rown eyes, which wo call black, havo a de cided advantage in power of expres sion. There is no sound reason for think ing that the hlue-eyed are moro truth ful, honest, and loving-in tho sense of affection and constancy-than the brown-eyod. But Dr. Bed docs and Dr. Shrubsall are proving that tho dark-eyed are supplanting the light in England. They ai.so demonstrate that the light-oyed are constitutionally un fitted to endure tho condit...

TO PREVENT SWARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 March 1908
TO PREVENT SWARMING. To prevent swarming in bees (wrltis, an exchange) nothing la so effective ns giving the colonies plenty of fulJy built* out, empty combs, and dispensing *vl4h the honey board until the swarming season is over. When finished combf are not available, frames with slice-s of foundation may be given. whi?h, ?however,/ are not nearly as effective. Breaking out all queen cells once a week will postpone swarming for n time, and with a change of temperature may prevent it. To breed a practically non-swarming strain of bees is very difficult, and almost impossible In an apiary worked for honey yields. Swank ing may, however, bo considerably re duced and brought under control by o proper system of management, and by continuous select breeding of queens from, stocks, which, while equal to «tfio best, show but little or no Inclination to swarm. The initial difficulty is thai oven amongst 200 to 300 colonies there may not be a single one which pos sesses- all "the requirement...
