FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 10 January 1914
FATTENING POULTRY. Theo best and, at the same time, most economical method of fattening nall inds of poultry is to ookeep them in confinoment for a short tielo before they are roeqluired for table, A good dleal of ju(lgment, however, has to be oxorciseod in dlciding the length of time this confinemont is to last, for if overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose flesh and go back in condition. Strange as it may soom, once this begins, no amount of feeooding will restoro oeither their weight or condition till after they have regaineod their Ilborty again, For this reason the poultry must be confined for too long a period before they .0%r" ;'3,ired,
IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 10 January 1914
IRON FOR FOWLS, Iron is lpresent in the fowl's body; part of this iron is in an organised form in the rod corpuscles of the blood, The total amount of iron is small, but novertholesos, it is of great importance, andi a deliciency re* sults in anaemia.

GRIT A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 10 January 1914
GRIT A NECESSITY. A lack of this causes a slow supply of eggs, and if fowln havo not the materials for digesting their food, it is impossible for them to got on, for the proper nutriment must be extract ed from the food for the production of eggs,. Oyster shell grit for lime, as well as soea shell or pebbly beach grit, is best for the purpose, as it is very hard and sharp, and a small quantity goes a long way. It should be okept in a trough in the run for the fowls to help themselvoes to,

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 10 January 1914
WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? Why, asks an export, do we import citrus fruit from Italy? We have conditions here favorable to the growing of first class fruit. We can produce citrus fruit here equal to what we receive fromn Italy, if pro per cultural methlods are practised, The soil is here, and the climatic condition. The Italian fruit hait a thin skin, the correct flavor, and its keeping quality is world-renowned. Yet some of our locally-produced oran ges will conmpareo favorably with theirs, but to oust the imported ar tidcles growers should endeavor to produce more of this class, The thin skinned varieties are just as eaulsily grown as the inferior types, and, as far as flavor is concorned, many of our up-to-datoe growers produce fruit every bit as good as that imported- better in fact, but the drawback is that we do not got enough, nor (does it always combine with the commer cially-essential thin skin.
