Impure Air and Scrofula. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
Impure Air and Scrofula. The atmosphere of all rooms should be frequently renewed by proper ven tilation. The best method of "accom plishing this has been for many years u subject closely studied by sanitar ians. In rooms, and especially in bed rooms, the fireplace should always be left unclosed. The windows should be pulled down from the top, and up from the bottom. All rooms, and es pecially Bleeping apartments, should be well aired during the day. Impure air in bedrooms is conBiderd by emin ent medical authorities to be one of the most potent causes of consumption and scrofula. A well-known French physician who has devoted much at tention to studies of this nature says: "It will often be found, on examina tion, that scrofulous diseases are caused by vitiated air, and it is not always necssary that there should have been a prolonged stay In such an atmosphere. Only a few hours cach day is sufficient; and a person may live in a most healthy dfstrict, pass the greater part of each d...
HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. Late or heavy suppers are a com mon cause of insomnia, especially that form of it in which people fall Into a heavy sleep, only to awake with a start an hour or two lator and finu themselves unable to sleep again until early morning" perhaps. Digestion comes almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that sufficient time should be allowed for the last meal, to be dis posed o£ before the hour for retiring. This interval should be two hours at least, which meanB that half-past eight is as a rule lato enough for the evening meal. In any case, the food which is taken then ought to be o£ a light nature, and not includo pork, cold meat, or any othor article of diet which is slow of digestion. Coffee and strong tea are unsuitable at this hour, as they tend to cause sleep lessness. Cocoa, made with water, is a much better 'beverage for use .with the evening meal or after lit.
DAIRYING. WHY WASH THE UDDER? [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
DAIRYING. WHY WA8H THE UDDER? There are many points In clean dairying which, if observed closely, would obviate milk contamination, and consequent complaints about in terior cream and butter. Here are some points of advice: Washing the cow'B udder is fre quently necessary. Should the pad dock in which the cows have been accustomed to lie down during the night be not clean-very few are clean enough-then the udders should be washed before milking. Cows for aging in unclean places, especially during drought, render washing their udders imperative. The cow-yard is usually muddy in some degree during wet weather. As the cow walks to and from the bail she generally makeB a beaten path, and when wet this track becomes a continuous manure track. The cow kicks up on to the udder pieces of this contaminated soil, and the udder Is thus unclean when milking time begins. The milker's hands are oftenCTa fruitful source of milk contamination during the operation of milking. The damp, dirty hanci o...

EXPERIENCE IMPERATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
EXPERIENCE IMPERATIVE. It requires the same treatment of good judgment and perseverance to succeed in the poultry, business as it does in other lines of business. There are not any more adverse conditions to encounter than there are in other lines. But about the first time a poultry-raiser encounters a really dis couraging thing, hiB enthusiasm suf fers such a shock as to make recovery doubtful. There is not another busi ness that can be mentioned the pro duct "of which is in greater demand. Then, why should large numbers of people who enter it continue to fail? The greatest reason is because a great majority of those who take up poultry-raising do so without any pre vious knowledge of the business. The next great reason iB because of the continued problems which come up daily to be solved, and which, if not solved with good judgment, lead to positive disappointment and IOBS. Thirdly, because profits do not roll in as fast as they had been led to be. lieve they would by the extravag...
DAIRYING SUGGESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
DAIRYING SUGGESTIONS. The following suggestions are the experience of Mr. W. M. Rider, of the Winona Agricultural College, U.S.A.: Test your herd for economic produc tion. Weigh milk from each cow night and morning, one day each month.. Take samples of each milking and test it for butter fat. Knowing the milk and fat given in one day, use these figures as an aver age day's production for the current month, and, 'by multiplying the milk and fat produced &lt;by the number o£ days in the month, you obtain the total amount of milk and butter fat (in pounds) produced for one month. Weigli feed fed on day of test, and from the cost of each feed figure the cost of feed fed each cow on day of test. From the daily cost of feed per cow, compute the cost of her feed for one month. If the milk is sold as milk, compute the value of each cow's milk for the month at the market price received. Knowing the money value of each cow's milk for the month, and the cost of her feed, one can find t...
IN FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. An amusing account of tile horti cultural pursuits-and Ineptitude-of General d'Arblay, the French emigre who became Fanny Buvney's Iiub band, is given In an article In the "Cornbiil" by Sir Henry Lucy: - The young couple began their mar ried life in apartments In a farm house on the summit of Bagdcn Hill. Thence tliey moved to a somewhat larger cottage at Bookham. Finally, when "Camilla" proved a financial success, they built themselves a house on the outskirts of Norbury Park, known during their residence as "Camilla Cottage." From the first, M. d'Arblay, con scious of inadequacy to hear his fair share in the wherewithal for meeting the cost of the little household, de veloped a fearsome frenzy for gar-, dening. Pursuit of the vocation in volved him in delightfully ludicrous dilemmas. Writing under date April, 1794, from the cottage at Bookham, the young wife says: - "Think of our horticultural shock last 'Week when Mrs. Bailey, our land lady, entreated him n...

Staying at a country house with traditions of a family ghost, he was put up for the night in the "haunted chamber." In the morning his hosts were anx ious to know if he had seen anyth'ng. "Oh, yes," he replied; "about twelve o'clock I heard n. knoofe at the door. I said, 'Come In, come In.' "And did he come?" "Yes; an old- sallow-looking man." "Yes, that is ?our ghost! What did you do?" "I got out of bed and asked If he belonged to the house. He nodded as sent. I asked, him if he were a -par ishioner. He nodded again. Then I ...
